Here are my tips for a healthier lifestyle…if you adopt just ONE of these tips in your life, I promise it will be worth it! 1. Drink one ounce of water per pound that you weigh every day. Eliminate (or minimize) sugary drinks and soda from your diet; they are just unnecessary calories! 2. Keep track of what you eat! You will be surprised how well this works for making you aware of your diet. Online calorie tracking resources are best, because they provide you with accurate calorie counts and calories burned vs. intake reports. Online calorie tracking resources: – www.livestrong.comwww.sparkpeople.com 3. Use supplements, but use them wisely. Only take supplements that you cannot achieve through your normal diet. “Overdosing” on vitamins does not have any additional health benefits. My recommendations for vitamins: -Origins; Hair, Skin and Nails -One-A-Day; Womens Active Metabolism -Flinstones (or any generic brand) Chewable Daily Vitamins (YUM!) 4. Exercise at least 30 minutes every day! Get your heart rate elevated; cardio is key. You will have so much energy after you start exercising regularly. You don’t need to join a gym in order to “work out”- you can run up and down a flight of stairs, jog around the block, or do jumping jacks in your living room and get the same benefits as a treadmill or elliptical machine. Let me know if you have any questions!! I wish you the best of luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! My Formspring Account: www.formspring.me

Great tasting, zero alcohol, low calories: holiday cocktail recipes

December 22, 2010 by  
Filed under ADDICTION, CANCER, HEART AND STROKE

Hey, wanna try some real cool cocktails this New Year without the day-after complaints and the lifetime risks? Well, that’s what we are bringing you with this post today – recipes for great tasting cocktails without the alcohol and the calories. Yuck! Mocktails, you might say. Well, let say, just give it a try. I sure did and loved it. What’s more, every can drink them – the kids, the pregnant, the alcoholics, the drivers. Perfect for family-friendly holiday gatherings where you can really drink to everyone’s health.

Here are some recipes, courtesy of the MD Anderson Cancer Center and the American Institute for Cancer Research:

Holiday Citrus Punch

The orange juice and cranberry juice in this recipe offer a healthy dose of cancer-fighting antioxidants like vitamin C. You’ll get the most vitamin C if you use freshly- squeezed orange juice, but refrigerated or frozen concentrate will also do the body good.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups orange juice
  • 2 cups 100% cranberry juice
  • 4 cups sparkling water or club soda
  • 1 orange, sliced horizontally into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 lime, sliced horizontally into 1/4-inch slices

Directions

In large punch bowl, combine juices and sparkling water or soda. Float orange and lime slices on top and serve.

Yield: 20 servings

Serving size: 1/2 cup

  • Dietary fiber: 0 grams
  • Sodium: 1 milligram

Sparkling Grape Party Punch

This recipe packs a hefty antioxidant punch. The grapes and grape juice provide a powerful dose of resveratrol — the same cancer-preventing antioxidant in red wine — with none of alcohol’s drawbacks. And, the orange juice and lemon juice in this recipe gives you a generous amount of vitamin C.

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle (46 oz.) 100% grape juice
  • 1 bottle (25 oz.) sparkling apple-grape juice
  • 4 to 6 cups sparkling spring water
  • 1 to 1 and 1/2 cups 100% orange juice
  • 2 to 4 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice

What’s in your bag of popcorn?

September 9, 2010 by  
Filed under HEART AND STROKE, OBESITY

Going to the movies is fun! Except that it comes with things that are detrimental to your health. The soda. The sweets. And the popcorn, too.

You’d say, “C’mon, don’t be such a spoilsports. Movies are nothing without the popcorn.”

Well, basically you’d think the popcorn is simply a bunch of corn grains that popped. What harm can a bag of “popped” corn do? Well, it’s the butter, the salt, the chocolate, or the caramel, or any of the added flavours. In other words, it is basically all the things that make popcorn taste good are also the one that make it unhealthy. What a bummer!

Next thing you’d say is “It can’t be as bad as fast food.”

Well, actually it is, according to the study commissioned by the nonprofit organization Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). The lab analyses showed that a medium popcorn and soda combo sold for $12 at Regal, the biggest movie theater chain in the US:

  • Contains 1610 calories – equivalent to the calories of two sticks of butter
  • Contains 60 grams of saturate fat – 3 days’ worth and equivalent to saturated fat content of a stick of butter
  • Is equivalent to three McDonald’s Quarter Pounders with 12 pats of butter

Scary, isn’t it?

The other movie chains aren’t any better, according to CSPI. Second largest chain AMC sells smaller servings and uses a bit of coconut oil but the calories and saturate fat levels are still unacceptably high.

Cinemark thinks adding canola oil can make their popcorn more heart-friendly but this doesn’t work either.

According to CSPI senior nutritionist Jayne Hurley.

“Regal and AMC are our nominees for Best Supporting Actor in the Obesity Epidemic. Who expects about 1,500 calories and three days’ worth of heart-stopping fat in a popcorn and soda combo? That’s the saturated fat of a stick of butter and the calories of two sticks of butter. You might think you’re getting Bambi, but you’re really getting Godzilla.”

CSPI claims that results of their test results do not match those declared by either Regal or AMC.

So why do they need so calories when sitting in a movie theater for 2 hours. I guess it is part of fun. It is tradition. And as long as you don’t do it on a regular basis, your body can tolerate excess calories and fat once in a while. But if you do it regularly, say every weekend, then it is time to examine your lifestyle and your priorities. Now that you know what’s in that bag of popcorn.

What you drink affects what you eat

June 17, 2010 by  
Filed under ADDICTION

There is nothing like alcohol to ruin one’s diet. Alcohol is rich in calories. But that is not all. Aside from loading you up on calories, alcohol actually puts you off the healthy stuff like fruit and cereals. This is according to a study by researchers at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

According to NIAAA Acting Director Dr. Kenneth R. Warren:

“Heavy drinking and dietary factors have independently been associated with cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, and other chronic health problems. This finding raises questions about whether the combination of alcohol misuse and poor diet might interact to further increase health risks.”

The researchers study looked at more than 15,000 American adults who are participants of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). The drinking and dietary habits of the participants were analyzed, in particular alcohol consumption and how close do these people’s diets conform to the 2005 U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Theirs results showed that people who consume more alcohol are also more likely to eat more fatty and sugary foods and less likely to eat fruit.

According to lead author Dr. Rosalind A. Breslow, an epidemiologist in NIAAA’s Division of Epidemiology and Prevention Research:

“We found that as alcoholic beverage consumption increased, Healthy Eating Index scores decreased, an indication of poorer food choices. It’s important to note that our study did not determine the cause of these associations.”

This is not the first study to indicate that the worst drinkers have the unhealthiest diets. However, the current study went into detail about finding out what specific aspects of the diet are affected by alcohol consumption as well as gender differences. In both men and women, consumption of fruit is reduced and calorie-rich food consumption is increased with increasing alcohol intake. However, men are even worse than women in that aside from fruit, they also tend to forgo the milk and the whole grain food stuffs.

The health hazards of excessive alcohol consumption are quite well-documented: important body organs such as the liver, the heart, and the kidneys are affected. Excessive alcohol consumption is also linked to increased risk for certain cancers.

“The 2005 U.S. Dietary Guidelines define moderate drinking as no more than one drink on any day for women and no more than two drinks on any day for men. It is important for people to consume nutrient-dense foods, like whole fruits and whole grains, that provide substantial amounts of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and relatively few calories, while limiting the consumption of alcohol, unhealthy fats, and added sugars, which provide calories but few essential nutrients.”

iPhone apps for weight management and nutrition

May 18, 2010 by  
Filed under OBESITY

Weight loss and calorie counting have gone high tech, too. Those are determined to lose a few kilos and keep them off for good may benefit from the wide range of phone apps for iPhones. I bring you couple of of apps that might help you get started and stay on a healthy lifestyle.

Weight Watchers Mobile, as the name says, is the iPhone app from Weight Watchers, the big name in weight loss. Tracking and calculating points values with your smartphone have never been that easy. It also gives the user access to more than 31,000 goof options, meals, and recipes. Then there is the shopping list tool as well as access to menus (and points values) of your favorite restaurants. And it’s included in your phone subscription!

Calorie Tracker is the iPhone partner to LIVESTRONG’s highly successful online tool the Daily Plate . It has access to Daily Plate’s online database of 450,000 food and restaurant items and their nutritional values. It helps you keep track of daily weight, food consumed and the corresponding calorie intake as well as physical activity and the corresponding calories burned. A great feature is that by physical activity, the apps does not only take into account the likes of work outs and jogging runs but also the daily activities like mowing the lawn, walking the dog, or pushing baby on the stroller. Calorie Tracker is for free but wireless Internet access is necessary to access the databases. An online version is available.

Nutrition menu. Now, for those who love to eat out but still watch what they eat should try out Nutrition menu. All the nutritional info you ever want about the food you eat everyday – carbs, fats, sugar, protein, sodium and fiber – are all in this app. What is more important is the access to content and nutritional info of more than 33,000 menus from more than 320 restaurants in the US and Canada. A big plus is that the app works and accessed the database without WiFi. Nutrition menu is purely about food, calories and nutrition. Exercise and weight are not integrated in the apps. At $9.99, it is a bit pricey compared to other apps.

iWeight Deluxe, at $ 0.99 US, is was much cheaper than Nutrition Menu. It, too, tracks your weight, calorie intake, and exercise and helps reach your weight goal. A plus is the inclusion of water intake, something that is important, yet usually missing in many fitness tolls and regimes. toTips on stress management, and directions to the nearest gym are given.

Weightbot is similar to iWeight in terms of price although it is much simpler and only focuses on weight gain or loss. Its simplicity probably makes it easy which is why it is available in 11 different languages.

The fountain of youth is calorie-poor

March 17, 2010 by  
Filed under AGING

For thousands of years, people have been searching for the fountain of youth. Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham now think they may be on the verge of discovering the proverbial fountain and this fountain is low in calories.

Is it that simple? Reducing your calories means increasing your life span?

The researchers studied two types of lung cells: One type consisted of normal human lung cell and the other type consisted of lung cells at the beginning stages of cancer (precancerous). The two types of cells were grown in media containing normal or low amounts of glucose. Survival rates and the ability to divide were regularly monitored. The results showed:

  • Normal cells live longer when grown in low-glucose medium.
  • Precancerous cells die in low-glucose medium

According to researcher Dr. Trygve Tollefsbol at the Center for Aging and Comprehensive Cancer Center at the university

“In that time, we were able to track the cells’ ability to divide while also monitoring the number of surviving cells. The pattern that was revealed to us showed that restricted glucose levels led the healthy cells to grow longer than is typical and caused the precancerous cells to die off in large numbers.”

Two key genes have been identified that were responsible for this cellular response of decreased glucose. The telomerase gene encodes the enzyme that allows cells to divide indefinitely. The p16 gene encodes a well known anti-cancer protein. The gene effects were opposite between the 2 cell types tested. Healthy cells had increased telomerase and decreased p16 whereas the precancerous cells had decreased telomerase and increased p16 protein.

Extrapolated to the living human, the body (which is composed of cells) stays healthier and lives longer when we consume less glucose, our main source of calories.

“Our hope is that the discovery that reduced calories extends the lifespan of normal human cells will lead to further discoveries of the causes for these effects in different cell types and facilitate the development of novel approaches to extend the lifespan of humans. We would also hope for these studies to lead to improved prevention of cancer as well as many other age-related diseases through controlling calorie intake of specific cell types.”

Whether this is the fountain of youth or not, we know that eating food with high calories is unhealthy. High calorie intake is associated with a lot of diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. Aside from prolonging life, low calorie intake seems to prevent disease development. These findings especially hold a lot of promise in anti-cancer therapy.

Fast food calories: look who’s counting for who

March 2, 2010 by  
Filed under OBESITY

Look who is counting calories…not for themselves but for others – parents for their children. But only if the calorie info is available. This ground-breaking study by researchers at Seattle Children’s Research Institute investigated how parents react to calorie information that, at least in this study, comes with the fast food menus.

The researchers surveyed parents of 3- 6-year olds who occasionally eat in fast food restaurants with their children. 99 parents had to choose from a typical McDonald’s menu which included burgers, fries, salads, and even happy meals. Half of the parents had the usual menu with the prices, pictures of the food from which they would select food for themselves and for children. The other half received a similar menu, but with the calorie content of each food item clearly indicated.

The results indicated that parents tended to choose food items with lower calories for their children. On average, a reduction of 102 calories was observed among those parents who had access to calorie info than those who did not.

“They chose about 100 calories less than parents who didn’t see that information. And 100 calories, added up over time, is actually a significant amount.”

Surprisingly though, the parents were not as particular about the calories they take in. Their choices were not affected by the availability of the calorie information.

The study results suggest that nutritional labelling of food, not only in the supermarket but also in restaurants can help parents make smarter and healthier choices for their children. The decrease of 100 calories is equivalent is about 20% of total calorie intake.

According to study leader Dr. Pooja Tandon, research fellow at Seattle Children’s Research Institute and the University of Washington School of Medicine:

“Even modest calorie adjustments on a regular basis can avert weight gain and lead to better health over time. Just an extra 100 calories per day may equate to about ten pounds of weight gain per year. Our national childhood obesity epidemic has grown right alongside our fast food consumption. Anything we can do to help families make more positive choices could make a difference. Interestingly, by simply providing parents the caloric information they chose lower calorie items. This is encouraging, and suggests that parents do want to make wise food decisions for their children, but they need help. Now that some areas are requiring nutritional information in chain restaurants, we have opportunities to further study what happens when we put this knowledge in the hands of parents.”

Several  groups and sectors are pushing for nutritional labelling especially in chain restaurants. In the US, there is a growing trend in some states and localities to require nutritional and calorie info to be clearly visible at point-of-order. The possibility of making such a policy mandatory at the federal  level is being considered in connection with the health care reform legislation.
