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

www.joanbars.com Biking is a fantastic way to have fun, get great aerobic exercise, and lose weight. However, before you even think about biking, get the okay from your doctor. Once you have the medical clearance — and before you buy or jump on your current bike — make a plan to start biking gradually. It depends on your final goals, but start with short bike rides around your neighborhood or local bike paths — generally 2-3 miles at first, gradually adding a few miles at a time. And regardless of the temperature or other weather conditions, ALWAYS pack enough water — and carry money with you to purchase more water along the way if you need it. You do not need to buy an expensive bicycle, but what you DO need to do is buy a bike that fits you. Wal-Mart and Target, both have decent bikes. Having a bike that fits your body is essential to enjoying biking — and to avoiding straining yourself. Besides the bicycle, you also should invest in a quality helmet. I’ve been through a few, but what important here is fit and comfort. Most states do not require adults to wear helmets, but one could save your life, so spend the additional money and wear it whenever you’re on the road. Just came back from a bike ride and one thing I tell everyone many sure that you have a helmet on, I like to use these cushioned gloves to avoid carpal tunnel and biking is a great way because you are using the big thigh muscle that I talked about in building up muscle matter that will burn calories and

Drinking water: the answer to childhood obesity?

April 16, 2009 by  
Filed under OBESITY

water-in-a-glassGerman researchers may have found a way to control obesity in children. And the solution is simple and cheap – drinking water. The consumption of soda and other sugar- and calorie-rich drinks has been linked to the problem of childhood obesity, despite the development of “sugar-free” and “light” versions of these drinks.

German researchers tried an intervention in 32 grade schools in 2 German cities wherein they installed additional water fountains, and distributing free water bottles in the classroom. Couple to this, teaching the health benefits of water was incorporate in the school curriculum.

The study tested whether a combined environmental and educational intervention solely promoting water consumption was effective in preventing overweight among children in elementary school.

The researchers monitored changes in body mass index (BMI), and beverage consumption (in glasses per day; 1 glass is equicalent to 200 mL) before and after the intervention. The water fountains were also fitted with a meter that measured water consumption during the study period of 1 year. Schools with no interventions were used as control group.

The study results can be summarized as follows:

  • The risk of being overweight was reduced significantly (31%) in children going to schools with water intervention compared to children in “control” schools.
  • Water consumption in the interventions schools hiked up to 1.1 glasses more per child per day compared to the control group.
  • Juice consumption was slightly down in the intervention group.

The purpose of the study was not to make children lose weight, as what many people may associate with the so-called water diet. Children need to gain weight as they grow. Rather, the aim is to find ways and means to slow weight gain proportional to growth rate and height, e.g. maintaining a normal body mass index. The study results have been published in the journal Pediatrics and the authors have concluded:

Our environmental and educational, school-based intervention proved to be effective in the prevention of overweight among children in elementary school, even in a population from socially deprived areas.

Previous studies have shown that interventions in school such as restriction of junk food and increased nutritional education have also proven to be effective in managing childhood obesity, at least during the study period. It is however, unclear, how sustainable these effects are once the study is over.

What is clear is the fact that interventions to prevent childhood obesity are necessary and that they shouldn’t be confined only to one environment because the home as well as the school environment play a very important role in a child’s health outcomes.

How safe is our tap water?

February 9, 2009 by  
Filed under CANCER

Have you ever wondered how safe is your tap water?

Researchers at the Southern Nevada Water Authority in Las Vegas screened tap water from 19 US water utilities for 51 different compounds between 2006 and 2007. Their comprehensive survey revealed that a large number of pharmacological agents can be found in tap water and some of these are hormonally active. The 11 most frequently detected compounds, albeit at very low concentrations (source: New Scientist) are:

The use of pharmacological agents has increased in recent years and most of these compounds are excreted by the body through the urine and end up in our waste water. However, current techniques in waste water treatment seem to be not effective in taking out all the pharmacological agents from the water.

Researchers at the University of Montreal have recently detected the following drugs in the St. Lawrence River:

  • bezafibrate, an anti-cholesterol drug
  • enalapril, an anti-hypertensive drug
  • methotrexate, a chemotherapy drug
  • cyclophosphamide, also a chemotherapy drug

The waste water treatment plant in Montreal was able to take out the chemotherapeutic agents but not the cardiovascular drugs.

Increased contamination or improved detection?

The Nevada researchers are quick to point out that the concentrations of the 11 pharmaceuticals were very low, “millions of times lower than in a medical dose, and…that they pose no public health threat.” The concentrations were way below the set federal limits, at least for those with set limits. However, as in most pollution studies, it always ends up with the question whether the presence of these chemicals are due to increased contamination or improved detection. Or both.

Effect on the environment

The Canadian researchers are concerned about the effect of the compounds they detected on the flora and fauna of the St. Lawrence River. Hormonally active compounds can cause endocrine disruptions and have been observed to induce gender anomalies in fish and other aquatic organisms.

Effect on our health

Finally, we also have to ask as to what the long-terms effects of these pharmaceuticals are in our health. Are these compounds carcinogenic? Mutagenic? No data is available so far. Is it worthwhile to take all these chemicals out of the tap water?

According to Nevada researcher Shane Snyder

“the costs of “extreme purification” – far beyond what is needed for safety alone – are huge in terms of increased energy usage and carbon footprint. Ultra-pure water might not even be safe.”

According to a spokesperson from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):

neither this nor other recent water assessments give cause for health concern. “But several point to the potential for risk – especially for the fetus and those with severely compromised health.”
