You Can Keep Your Diet Ice Cream Give Me the Real Stuff – POPSUGAR

Posted: September 5, 2017 at 6:44 am

I’ll admit I was intrigued when I first spotted the new low-calorie, high-protein ice creams next to my beloved Coconut Bliss and Hagen-Dazs at the grocery store a while back. Who wouldn’t want to plow through an entire pint of ice cream for under 300 calories? Well, after giving it a try, this nutritionist is going right back to her high-fat, sugar-laden, calorie-rich ice cream with absolutely zero guilt, and I’ll tell you why.

First off, let’s take a look at the ingredients. Because they are not made with as much sugar or cream as traditional ice cream, these diet ice creams still have to get their flavor and texture from somewhere; that somewhere is sugar alcohols, natural flavors, added fibers, and thickeners. While these ingredients are not inherently bad, they can be problematic for some people.

Sugar alcohols are pretty popular right now because they are plant-based (unlike artificial sweeteners) and low-calorie. According to Chris Kresser, MS, LAc, these concentrated sweeteners can cause some pretty unpleasant digestive symptoms like gas, bloating, and diarrhea for certain people (mostly those who already have compromised digestion). Thickeners like guar gum and xanthan gum can have similar, ahem, undesirable results. While most people can consume these ingredients without any ill effects, it is something to keep in mind.

It comes down to this I know that I could easily prepare my own ice cream at home using the ingredients listed on the back of several of my favorite store-bought ice creams. I can’t say the same for these new diet versions. I wouldn’t even know where to find most of the ingredients, much less what to do with them if I did. Whole food is my jam and I will pretty much always choose simple, real ingredients over a mixture of ingredients that can only be manufactured by food scientists in a lab somewhere.

And as for the giant calorie count printed on the front of most of the low-cal ice cream packages, to me it just continues to fuel the notion that fewer calories = healthier. Ice cream is meant to be an occasional treat, and unless you are eating it for breakfast every morning, those few extra calories aren’t going to have any lasting impact on your health goals.

I truly believe that when we eat the real deal, we get much more enjoyment out of it than when we try to satisfy our cravings with low-calorie substitutes. So pass me a bowl, a spoon, and a pint all this ice cream talk is making me hungry.

How to stick to your vegetarian or vegan diet while you’re traveling – MyAJC

Posted: September 5, 2017 at 6:44 am

If you’re among the estimated 8 million vegetarians and 1 million vegans in the United States, don’t think that you have to stick close to home to maintain a plant-based diet. A growing number of resources online and on the ground, as well as changes in the hospitality industry, are making veg-friendly travel easier than ever before.

“I actually believe that travel is more fun as a vegan,” said Wendy Werneth, a native Alabamian who has lived in Europe since 1999, first in Switzerland and now in Portugal. “For one thing, vegan travel is like a treasure hunt, a fun challenge. At first, I thought I’d starve looking for sustenance, but the reality is I find too many things to try them all.”

Werneth initially feared that traveling while vegan would be difficult and stressful. During a trial vegan trip to Greece in 2014, she discovered that vegan travel was not only doable, it was enjoyable. “Since I had all these fears and misconceptions, I knew that other people out there had the same concerns,” said Werneth, who guides fellow travelers with insights and tips at the Nomadic Vegan, a blog for practicing and aspiring vegans.

Here are some trends and tips from Werneth and others.

– Get the app: Since started in 1999 as a primitive website, it has grown to become the world’s top directory of vegan, vegetarian and veg-friendly restaurants around the world. Travelers can use it for advance planning and, while on the road, let HappyCow’s mobile app steer them to the nearest options.

The Santa Monica, California-based site, with 157,000 registered members who have left more than 212,000 reviews, continues to grow by about 20 percent each year, said spokesman Ken Spector. HappyCow’s nearly 57,000 listings also include retreats and lodging, bakeries and farmers markets. It recently teamed up with Werneth to publish the site’s free guide, “9 Steps for Easy Vegan Travel.”

– Splurge: High-end hotels, while they might not mention “the V-word,” are increasingly catering to their vegetarian and vegan customers. “Without a doubt, there’s more movement in that direction,” said Paul Eyers, who with his wife, Caryl, writes the blog Vegan Food Quest, which includes luxury hotel reviews. The couple left Britain for Southeast Asia four years ago and are now based in Cambodia. “You’ve already got eastern religion and western animal compassion,” he said, “and now people are turning to veganism because of health and environmental concerns.”

Eyers, who also advises properties (and their restaurants) on catering to vegans, says that little things can go a long way. “High-end hotels, which usually ask for your preferences ahead of time, should know you’re vegan, so they shouldn’t leave chocolate on pillows or milk in the fridge,” he said. “If I go into a room and there’s fruit, soy milk and a butter alternative, I know they understand my diet, and that makes me confident in the hotel in general.”

– Research local cuisine: Even cuisines that have a reputation for being extraordinarily difficult for vegans and vegetarians still dish up plenty of surprises if you dig deep enough, Werneth said. Spain, for example – known for its cured meats and seafood – has gazpacho, vegetable paella and a huge selection of vegan tapas. France – famous for cheese and rich beef flavors – has vegan specialties such as socca, a savory pancake made from chickpea flour that is hugely popular in the southern part of the country.

Researching vegan options, she said, offered her a new way to approach different cultures and cuisines, many of which she explores in her recently published book “Veggie Planet: Uncover the Vegan Treasures Hiding in Your Favorite World Cuisines.” “For instance,” she said, “there are a lot of what I call accidentally vegan dishes in the Greek cuisine because of religious restrictions in the Greek Orthodox Church.”

– Network: Werneth, Spector and Eyers all recommend that travelers research destinations before traveling, including connecting with local vegans via such outlets as Facebook, Couchsurfing, Airbnb, Meetup, local blogs and vegan restaurants and festivals.

– State your needs: Once at your destination, introduce yourself as vegan wherever you stay and eat. When confronting a language barrier, Spector recommended using Google Translate’s photo scanner (for menus) and also showing pictures of veg-friendly dishes. In case you run out of options, bring your own vegan snacks and a stash of vitamins and also carry containers, plastic bags and minimal eating utensils to set up your own kitchen.

Above all, the experts say, bring an open mind and an open heart, staying curious, respectful and positive, especially when eating fully vegan is not possible. “The whole point of the vegan movement is to create a more peaceful and compassionate world,” Werneth said. “I think it’s counterproductive to negatively focus on those small things that might not be vegan. I’d rather that 98 percent of what I’m eating is vegan and that I’m setting a positive example in the hopes that that is going to encourage more people to give veganism a try. That’s going to help a lot more animals in the end.”

– Book a vegan tour: Donna Zeigfinger, who is celebrating 20 years of running Green Earth Travel in Cabin John, Maryland, recently pored over her notes to prepare an anniversary timeline. “Wow, has it gotten so much easier to find vegan options,” she said. “Still, some people think they’re going to starve to death if they travel vegan and they’re freaked out. That’s where I come in.”

About 40 percent of Zeigfinger’s work these days is arranging custom vegetarian and vegan-friendly trips. For the rest, she collaborates with vegan tour and cruise companies with jaunts to destinations including Indonesia, India, Croatia, Italy and Ireland. Closer to home, she’s offering a package-deal trip to the Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Baltimore Orioles baseball game on Sept. 26 for PNC Park’s first vegan event.

Werneth, meanwhile, next year will lead tours in Italy and Portugal with Veg Jaunts and Journeys, a new company based in Asheville, North Carolina, whose trips often include vegan cooking classes and festivals, as well as visits to vegan-friendly stores. Owner Kim Giovacco also offers customized travel planning.

– Pick veg-friendly destinations: HappyCow recently released its first Top-10 list of vegan-friendly cities worldwide determined by number of offerings, population density and the staff’s impression of the “overall vegan-friendliness” of the city. Winners, starting with first place, are: Berlin; Los Angeles; Warsaw, Poland; Taipei, Taiwan; New York City; Singapore; London; Tel Aviv, Israel; Portland, Oregon; and San Francisco.

“I think Europe has seen the most tremendous growth,” Spector said. “Berlin has had a massive explosion, and of really high quality. In Warsaw, Poland, I had some of the best vegan food I’ve had in Europe. They have two vegan sushi restaurants that are phenomenal. I’m even speaking at a vegan event in Kiev.”

Spector, a frequent visit to the District of Columbia, noted that the Washington area has considerable room for growth, but he praised several spots, including HipCityVeg, NuVegan Cafe, Shouk and Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats.

HappyCow has been invited to dozens of vegan fairs and festivals around the world, which Spector said are growing in number and size. “I remember going to vegan events with 200 or maybe 500 people; now it’s up to 30,000,” he said. “I’m going to vegan event in China; they’re expecting 35,000.”

DASH Diet for Your Fatty Liver: More Than Just Hypertension Benefits – HuffPost

Posted: September 5, 2017 at 6:43 am

DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. So, what does that have to do with fatty liver?

There is something called Metabolic Syndrome where, to simply put it, patients with hypertension may also have issues with sugar metabolism, high triglycerides, low HDL (good cholesterol), and/or high LDL (bad cholesterol). So, it makes sense to see if someone who is on the DASH diet for hypertension might also help these parameters. Many of these patients with metabolic syndrome may also be overweight and possibly have fatty liver as well, so could the DASH diet help with all of this?

As my patients know, I am a big fan of using food/diet to help diseases. When I saw this study about a diet that could help with many of these metabolic parameters, I was immediately drawn to it. I cant tell you how many people have fatty liver and they dont even know it.

Liver ultrasounds are an easy non-invasive way of doing this. Ask your doctor about it!

And if you have it, this diet apparently helps with not just hypertension, but also weight and fatty liver as well.

In a randomized controlled clinical trial, 60 overweight and obese patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease were randomly allocated to either the control diet or the DASH diet for 8 weeks. Both diets restricted calories and both diets consisted of 52-55% carbohydrates, 16-18% proteins, and 30% total fats. However, the DASH diet was high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and were low in saturated fats, cholesterol, and refined grains.

After 8 weeks, the DASH diet group had significant improvements in liver function test results, weight, body mass index, insulin resistance issues, insulin sensitivity, triglyceride levels, total/HDL cholesterol ratio and hs-CRP. Some of the markers that show liver stress were also improved in the DASH diet group.

If you are someone who is worried about doing a lifelong diet, I recommend trying this diet for 8 weeks. If possible, a lifestyle change into a diet that is mostly vegetable-based and whole-food based that is not processed or sugary or full of saturated fat is ideal. However, if you find that you need a shorter time limit plan where you dont feel as overwhelmed, just try this for 8 weeks and once you start feeling better, you might just want to keep going.

As with any major changes, I highly recommend checking with your doctor before implementing diet or supplement changes to make sure its safe for you. The best part about the DASH diet is that most, if not all doctors, know about it. So, the conversation about whether you should try it or not should be a relatively easy conversation to have with your primary doctor.

Once youve got the go-aheadjust know that Ill be rooting for you.

If there is one thing that helps the most for your overall healthits a healthy diet!

Zade, MR, et al. The effects of DASH diet on weight loss and metabolic status in adults with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: a randomized clinical trial. April 2016. 36(4): 563-571.

It’s been proven by experts: crash diets really don’t work – Independent Online

Posted: September 5, 2017 at 6:43 am

DROPPING a dress size after enduring a week of misery on a juice diet may seem worth it.

But crash dieters are being warned that such extreme measures simply do not work in the long run.

A study of 183 dieters shows it is better to adopt a tortoise-like strategy than to be like the hare and try to slim down too fast.

After two years, those content to patiently shed a pound a week were found to have lost significantly more weight than yo-yo dieters.

The studys lead researcher Dr Emily Feig, from Drexel University in Philadelphia, said: It seems developing stable, repeatable behaviours related to food intake and weight loss early on in a weight control programme is really important for maintaining changes over the long term. In the study, obese and overweight people were enrolled into a year-long weight loss programme using meal replacements and were told to cut their calories, exercise and eat more healthily.

Some lost a consistent amount in regular weigh-ins over the first six to 12 weeks, while others fluctuated.

The yo-yo dieters may have seen more exciting and dramatic results early on, but after a year they had lost less weight than those who were consistent. The difference was seen particularly in men.

The study found that dieting too strictly, in people with an all-or-nothing approach to eating, often leads them to lose their willpower and regain weight. It adds: Strict restraint has been associated with poorer long-term weight control.

The study, published in the journal Obesity, supports other research that a large majority of people who lose 5 to 10% of their body weight typically regain it. – Daily Mail

Produce ‘rescue’: Looking to Israeli initiatives to combat world hunger – The Jerusalem Post

Posted: September 5, 2017 at 6:43 am

LEKET ISRAEL volunteers pick produce for the needy..(photo credit:COURTESY LEKET ISRAEL)

The good news is that if you look at the world population who lives with chronic hunger [people who dont consume enough calories in their daily diets], that has dramatically decreased over the past 20 years. There are still about 800 million people in the world who go to bed hungry, Lisa Moon told The Jerusalem Post in an exclusive interview on Monday, adding that they mainly reside in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia.

For the past 18 months, Moon has been president and CEO of the Global Food-Banking Network (GFN), an international nonprofit organization working in 32 countries, dedicated to alleviating world hunger by creating, supporting and strengthening food banks around the world that currently serve 57 million people annually.

On her first trip to Israel, Moon is primarily visiting the Leket Israel facilities outside of Raanana, meeting with the staff and observing practices that Leket is using in Israel that can be applied throughout the world to combat hunger.

Leket, Israels national food bank, has rescued some 15,000 tons of produce for the needy which mainly comes from farms throughout Israel.

So far, the biggest takeaway for me is that Lekets approach is really unique, because they focus on fresh fruits and vegetables and working with local producers and focusing on nutrition with the people they are serving and people in food banks all over the world, Moon said.

Moon, an expert on global international policy and food waste, who has been involved with GFN since 2015, explained the shift in world hunger from chronic hunger to hidden hunger.

When people who may have enough to eat on a fairly regular basis but may have to miss meals, and they also dont have access to nutritious foods, and, regrettably, about one in four people globally has micronutrient deficiencies and is subject to hidden hunger thats really the hunger that food banks are working to address, she said.

Moon noted that we are living in a time when there is enough food for everyone, yet the statistics show that one in nine people in the world go to bed hungry.

It doesnt matter how much food we produce; if we dont have a way to distribute it to the people who are in need, we are still going to have a hunger issue, she said. So its an honor for me to work with food banks, because they really work with distribution.

Advocating the need for food banks throughout the world, Moon believes that this is the key element in reducing the number of hungry and malnourished people.

Right now, hunger is not about food production, she said, because, right now, we produce enough food for everyone to have enough. Its a distribution challenge and a logistics problem. And so what is so challenging about that is that a third of all the food that is produced goes to waste.

Explaining the need to provide impoverished communities with food banks, Moon said the challenge facing these organizations is getting this food directly to those in need efficiently and, of course, cheaply.

And so we need a mechanism to take that surplus food which is edible, she said. We need a way to capture that surplus food and redistribute it to those who cant access this at the store maybe the price is too high, maybe theyre too sick. Thats really the role of food banks. And thats why GFN is so passionate about promoting this model to communities around the world.

Moon credits Leket Israel for its unique method of collecting fresh, rescued food from the top of the food chain at the level of agricultural production.

Hoping to apply Lekets model on a global level, Moon said: We must focus on scaling food rescue around the world in order to meet growing demands and enter emerging markets.

Weight loss news: Men find THIS type of exercise harder than women –

Posted: September 5, 2017 at 6:43 am

Research has discovered men find certain types of exercise more challenging than women.

A study published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism revealed that men struggled with endurance exercise to a greater extent than women.

They discovered the latter were ‘considerably less tired’ after completing endurance exercise.

This includes workouts such as running, jogging and swimming.

However, men were faster and demonstrated more power during the study than women.

Such qualities may mean they are better at short, intense workouts such as HIIT training and lifting weights.

Professor Brian Dalton, study author, said: We’ve known for some time that women are less fatiguable than men during isometric muscle tests – static exercises where joints don’t move, such as holding a weight – but we wanted to find out if that’s true during more dynamic and practical everyday movements.

And the answer is pretty definitive: women can outlast men by a wide margin.”

He added that both men and women had ‘valuable physical abilities’.

In the study, men and women were asked to flex their foot as quickly as possible 200 times.

The exercise was similar to calf raises, where calves are used to lift a weight.

Researchers discovered that women had 15 per cent less fatigue-related change in peak power, meaning they tired less.

However, the change in force applied at peak power was 11 per cent less for women than men.

Research has also indicated that men and women should fuel their workouts differently.

A 2016 study by the University of Surrey last year revealed that men who ate after exercising burned 8 per cent more fat.

In contrast, women burned 22 per cent more fat if they had food before a session.

Girl Scouts raise bobwhite quail to help prevent Lyme disease – Suffolk Times

Posted: September 5, 2017 at 6:43 am

Piper Altman, Claire Paetzel and Jennifer Olsen carefully held 26 newborn bobwhite quail Monday, fawning over the birds theyd grown to love after watching the eggs closely, waiting for them to hatch.

Seeing the quail hatch this weekend was an exciting milestone in the project the girls, all 11, along with 12-year-old Violet Johnson, have been working on to earn their Girl Scouts Silver Award.

It was interesting to watch them hatch and see the way of life. Not all of them hatch; some are strong, some are weak and you can see them grow and get all fluffy, Piper said.

The girls, all Girl Scout cadettes from Mattituck Troop 1971, ordered more than 100 quail eggs and spent weeks raising them in an incubator at Feisty Acres Farm in Jamesport. They checked the temperature and humidity of the incubator daily it must be between 98.5 and 100 degrees with about 60 percent humidity, which is raised to 70 percent for the three days before hatching and said nice words to the eggs in order to spread kindness and encourage them to grow.

Thirty-three of the eggs had hatched by Wednesday morning.

We named the ones that had the most personality, Piper said.

Two of the newborn bobwhite quail the Quail Scouts are helping to raise atFeisty Acres Farm in Jamesport.

The first chick to hatch was named Elvis, and one that had feathers sticking out of his shell while hatching was named Hairy. A third, which was born weak but grew stronger, was named Hercules.

The Girl Scouts said they chose bobwhite quail for two reasons: They are native to Long Island and their diet consists mainly of insects, especially ticks. The hope is that these quail will eat lots of ticks in the area, thereby helping to prevent the spread of Lyme disease.

Aware that Lyme disease is prevalent locally each of them knows someone personally who has been affected the girls chose that as the community problem they wanted to tackle in their Silver Award project.

The girls also created a social media video in an effort to raise awareness about Lyme disease.

We also did the Lyme Challenge, Piper said. Its take a bite out of lime. Its when you get an actual lime and bite into it and make a video and post it on social media.

You try to challenge others to do the same to raise awareness, Claire said, adding that it mimics the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that gained popularity a few summers back.

Girl Scout Cadettes Jennifer Olsen (clockwise from left), Claire Paetzel, Violet Johnson and Piper Altman work on part of their Silver Award project, which focuses on raising bobwhite quail as a way to prevent Lyme disease.

On Monday afternoon, with help from Feisty Acres owner Abra Morawiec, the girls mentor, Piper, Claire and Jennifer each took a baby bird out of an incubator and placed it in a quail surrogator a self-contained unit that allows the quail to adapt to their new environment safely way by providing food, water, warmth and protection.

We didnt even go online, the girls said. We learned everything from Abra.

To help the birds adapt to their home, where theyll spend the next four to five weeks, the Mattituck seventh-graders giggled as they guided each individual quail to the water source inside, called a nipple feeder, and then placed them under a heater by their food.

All four girls will visit Feisty Acres once a week to check on the birds, adjust the heat and document their progress before releasing them into the wild.

You can follow the rest of the girls Silver Award project on Instagram @QuailScouts. The project will culminate with the release of the quail at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 30, at Feisty Acres Farm.

Why You Shouldn’t Lose Weight Too Fast… – HuffPost

Posted: September 5, 2017 at 6:42 am

Its a beautiful, sunny day here on Long Island, and despite it being a federal holiday (Labor Day) here in the States, Im still meeting with a couple of clients today. Unlike most people who absolutely hate their jobs and count the days until their next extended weekend, I genuinely enjoy my career, so I dont mind working on days like today. Outside of Thanksgiving and Christmas, Ill rarely turn down a client who requests to meet on days where most people are off:-)

Now then, lets discuss a fairly common goal that prospective new clients have with me. Well be on our strategy call reviewing their health questionnaire (to set yours up, go to!), and well get to the section where theyve filled in their SMART goals. Normally, the goal is to lose a substantial amount of weight in a very short period of time.

Look, I get itYoure tired of feeling depressed, exhausted and fat all of the time, and you want to get as far away from those feelings as quickly as possible! If there werent any physical ramifications that came with that, then you can bet Id be another one of those fit pros selling you a bullshit Lose 30 lbs in 30 Days! program.

That being said, here are just a few of the many negative side effects losing a bunch of weight really quickly will provide you with:

3 Yo-yoing with your Weight, which puts unnecessary stress on your organs, and

4 No Knowledge of SUSTAINABLE eating and fitness practices to keep the weight off!

As Ramification #4 would suggest, when folks lose a considerable amount of weight in a very short period of time, they tend to do so in an unsustainable way, often via the application of an extremely low calorie diet coupled with insane amounts of exercise.

Now, I dont know about you, but I know that Im too busy to devote multiple hours a day to exercise, let alone the fact that my ability to function with hardly any food in my system is nonexistent! Food is fuel, so if youre looking to better your life while operating on empty, then my friend, youre truly going to struggle!!

The BEST rate to lose weight at, on average, is anywhere from 0.5 to two pounds per week. I can already hear the objections to this range, If I dont lose it really fast, then my motivation is going to wane! I cant work so hard all week and see just a couple of pounds (or less!) down on the scale

News Flash: The scale isnt everything! It just happens to be the easiest method of measuring progress on your weight loss journey.

Riddle me this: What are people going to notice first? Inches lost (and thus, your physical changes), body fat percentage reduction (also a physical change!), or the number of pounds lost? Most people wont notice youve lost any weight until youve lost a MINIMUM of 10 lbs, but if youre losing inches regularly and youre routinely reducing your body fat percentage, not only will your clothes fit better (or will you even have to potentially buy a newer, SMALLER wardrobe), but youll look and feel significantly better than before!

Some of my BEST success stories have come from people who didnt hit their short-term weight loss goals, but were more lean, toned, fit and energetic than theyd ever been at a weight 1020 lbs HIGHER than they anticipated they needed to get down to when we first started working together!! One busy mom finished off at 15 lbs HIGHER than she aimed for, but looked better than she ever had in her entire life!!!

One of the most common issues with weight loss, weight gain, and anything to do with weight is the cycle of yo-yoing. As a global society, weve gotten so good at losing weight, but so notoriously terrible at KEEPING IT OFF! If youre using a fad diet and/or workout program to get you results fast, I can assure you that youre not going to learn ANYTHING about what it takes to keep that weight off FOR GOOD!!

Unlike most people in the health and fitness space, I teach my clients high QUALITY nutrition, which will not only assist them in reaching their short-term weight loss goals, but will enable them to develop the healthy lifestyle habits necessary to keep the weight off PERMANENTLY! Outside of perhaps being a little more liberal with certain food and drink, NOTHING changes once youve reached your short-term goals!!

As someone whos lost 100 lbs and kept it off, I can tell you that good nutrition practices and consistent exercise habits are the KEY to never looking back at where you started from

So, if youre looking to make a healthy, sustainable and PERMANENT change, then you must learn to BE PATIENT and FORGIVING wit yourself! LEARN what needs to be done, instill those principles in your life, and youll be amazed at how EASY it is to keep the weight off 5, 10 and even 20 years down the road:-)

P.S. If youre READY to take that first step on your health and weight loss journey, then youre REALLY going to want to download my FREE report!

With 10 years of experience, SEVEN different fitness and nutrition certifications, and a sustained weight loss of 100 lbs., I think I know a thing or two about this Permanent Weight Loss thing;-)

This report will provide you with the five strategies I personally used to lose 100 lbs., and KEEP THEM OFF! These are the same five strategies I teach my Permanent Weight Loss clients, and are the basis to losing weight and getting healthy once and for all!
