Chuck E. Cheeses To Offer New, Gluten-Free Options on Food Menu

Posted: May 8, 2012 at 11:11 am

While pizza, dessert and soft drinks are all common favorites for adolescents, compliance with a gluten-free diet often excludes these food experiences from children and families when dining away from home. To accommodate guests with special dietary needs, Chuck E. Cheeses has added gluten-free options to its menu. The new food items, which include a gluten-free pizza and chocolate cupcake, will begin testing at all Minnesota Chuck E. Cheeses locations to gauge demand for future national availability.

"Weve received an overwhelming response from families requesting that we add gluten-free products to our menu items for their kids who love to visit us but cant enjoy a Chuck-E classic, pizza, because of special diet needs, said Joe Elliot, Chuck E. Cheeses vice president of research and development. "In light of growing concerns and sensitivity to this lifestyle, we listened to their feedback and wanted to provide options that better help everyone enjoy the full flavor of Chuck E. Cheeses.

Dining out safely remains a primary concern for food-allergic customers under strict dietary limitations. To avoid cross contamination or accidental exposure to gluten ingredients in Chuck E. Cheeses kitchens, the personal cheese pizza, manufactured by USDA/FDA-approved, gluten-free facility Contes Pasta, will arrive to stores in frozen, pre-sealed packaging. The bake-in-bag pizza will remain sealed while cooked and delivered and until opened and served with a personal pizza cutter at families tables by the adult in charge.

Under the same procedure, gluten-free, chocolate fudge cupcakes naturally sweetened with fruits, vegetables and grains from Fabes All Natural Bakery will remain in pre-sealed, single-serve packaging through preparation and until opened and served at the table. To ensure high taste, integrity and quality standards are met before a national launch, testing these menu options helps Chuck E. Cheeses deliver the same type of consistent, great-tasting food products that are expected from the leader in family entertainment and dining.

"From delivery to table, our procedures ensure that families can feel confident knowing their meal is completely within gluten-free guidelines, said Elliott. "Were happy we can provide a place Where a Kid Can Be a Kid and enjoy great fun and food guilt- and gluten-free.

Although these menu options are not available at every Chuck E. Cheeses location at this time, the restaurant is evaluating the possibility of introducing gluten-free birthday parties and other special dietary products nationwide if test markets perform well. In addition to the successful launch of its new pizza recipe last year, Chuck E. Cheeses plans to continue adapting its menu to offer dishes that accommodate the changing tastes, dietary needs and lifestyles of families all over the country.

OMG! Bestselling diet breaks the rules

Posted: May 8, 2012 at 11:10 am

Throw away the fruit? ... dramatic approach to dieting.

Dieters are often made to feel bad about their pursuit of skinniness, but why shouldn't we celebrate it, asks Venice A Fulton, author of the controversial e-book, Six Weeks to OMG.

"You can talk ethics all day, and constantly blame the media, but the truth is if you have a problem with others wanting to get skinny, you've got a problem with our body's design," he says. "The minute we carry extra chunk, we're adding to whole host of [health] problems, a list so long, it's too scary to look at ... people who look after themselves aren't vain, they're smart."

Fulton is certainly no shrinking violet. Nor is he afraid to go against the status quo.

Advertisement: Story continues below

Among the contentious claims in his book are that it's good to skip breakfast; certain fruits instantly block fat loss; small frequent meals are damaging; juices and smoothies cause overeating and that broccoli carbs can be worse than those from Coke.

Understandably, there has been a strong reaction. In an op-ed article titled Six weeks to OMG: the diet that will make you disappear, writer Marianne Kirby of The Guardian said: "With its exhortation to 'get skinnier than all your friends', has a self-help book ever been as direct in its appeal to base instincts?

"But beyond the ludicrous guidelines ... I'm not sure a diet book has ever been this 'honest' about the root of the motivation that a lot of women (and men, who seem to increasingly be falling prey to this) feel for dieting. This book is indeed using psychology but it's using it against its readers."

Yet, despite its critics, the book is outselling The Dukan Diet on iTunes and Fulton is unrepentant.

"Of course, there are critics," he says. "I remember telling a doctor, 'Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, to skip'. He walked away angrily, and lit a cigarette. Science knows that the world isn't flat, and yet its so hesitant to set sail and reach new horizons."

On a Diet? Why You Can Have Your Cake and Eat it!

Posted: May 8, 2012 at 11:10 am

NOTTINGHAM, England, May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The majority of us think we need to stop eating carbohydrates such as biscuits, cakes and crisps when we go on a diet. A UK-wide survey has revealed a common belief that these types of foods are a 'no no', with 63% thinking that successful weight loss requires cutting out certain types of foods (1).

But studies of 7,592 dieters who signed up to lose weight online show the reality is quite the opposite - people who cut down rather than cutting out food groups not only lose weight, but are creating a more healthy relationship with food, which is really important for keeping weight off long-term (2). An overwhelming majority (86%) of Nutracheck.co.uk (3) dieters who lost enough weight to improve their health did so while continuing to eat biscuits, chocolate, pizza, cakes, crisps and ice cream (4).

'People tend to class foods as'good'or'bad', which is not helpful when trying to change your diet. Denying yourself something you enjoy leads to psychologically negative emotions, somany peopleassociate weight losswith denial, hunger and feeling miserable', explained UK leading weight loss doctor and obesity expert Dr Ian Campbell.

'Many dieters are unnecessarily too hard on themselves. Taking a more relaxed approach, including some treats, makes losing weight successful and sustainable as it builds in a long-term positive attitude towards food.'

Val Langthorne, 54 from Wensleydale, Yorkshire lost 4 stones 7lbs in 12 months: 'I have just discovered I like cake! I never used to eat cake pre-Nutracheck because it was alwaysa definite'NO'on diets. My life has been without cake since 1975. Now Ijustcount it into my calorie allowance.'

Percentage of 7,592 members who lost 10% & 5% of body weight and continued to eat the following foods:

Diet Doc Weight Loss Announces a Doctor Formulated Diet Pill or Appetite Suppressant Free of Charge For Patients …

Posted: May 8, 2012 at 11:10 am

Diet Doc Weight Loss announces a doctor formulated diet pill and appetite suppressant for patients joining their medical, weight loss program. They are offering the pills during the period May 4th - 6th free of charge. The diet pills require a doctors prescription.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 04, 2012

Diet Doc Weight Loss announces a new doctor-designed diet pill and appetite suppressant for patients joining their medical weight loss program during the period of May 4th-6th free of charge, a $55 value.

The diet pills / appetite suppressants were created by weight loss doctors and are part of a comprehensive weight loss program aimed at shaving 25 pounds per month. Diet Doc patients are able to realize these incredible results with the use of specific medications that are safe, yet highly effective. The medications are geared towards rapid weight loss.

Diet Doc also formulated weight loss shakes and a unique weight loss oil (flavorless) used to make salad dressing and/or cooking that is clinically proven to burn fat instead of storing this oil as fat within the human body. This is because the oil is metabolized differently than olive oil or any type of cooking oil used.

The Diet Doc Diet Pills cannot be found in stores or with other doctors. Diet Doctors specifically formulated the diet pills and weight loss products with rapid weight loss in mind.

Diet Doc Diet Doctors customize a weight loss program for each person based on their health history, age, gender and lifestyle. By customizing a diet for each person, the patient receives a powerful diet program, along with using specific medications and appetite suppressants to get the results they are looking for. This type of approach is not done by other doctors as typically it's labor intensive. Diet Doc's mission is if they do right by each person, they hope that people will refer friends and family.

Diet that breaks the rules

Diabetes improved regardless of surgical procedure

Posted: May 8, 2012 at 11:10 am

ScienceDaily (May 7, 2012) New research reports that no procedure for weight loss surgery is any better at treating diabetes than another. The study, presented May 7 at the International Congress of Endocrinology/European Congress of Endocrinology in Florence, Italy, uses a large ongoing study to show that improvements to diabetes in patients undergoing such surgery is likely to be due to the degree of weight loss itself rather than the type of procedure.

A number of procedures for weight-loss surgery (termed 'bariatric surgery') have been developed which can work by reducing the functional size of the stomach ('restriction'), reducing the capacity of the gut to absorb calories ('malabsorption') or by a combination of the two. The well-documented improvement in diabetes following such surgery has puzzled doctors but the evidence suggests it is due in part to the altered transit of food through the gut. It is therefore possible that different procedures would give different degrees of improvement. This is what Associate Professor Markku Peltonen at the National Institute for Health and Welfare, Finland and colleagues from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, set out to investigate using data from the large 'Swedish Obese Subjects' study.

2010 severely obese patients (with BMI>34 in men and >38 in women) recruited to the study went on to receive bariatric surgery: 376 gastric banding, 265 gastric bypass (GBP), and 1369 vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG -- see below for descriptions). They followed 74% of these patients at both 2 and 10 years and measured improvements in diabetes via blood glucose and insulin levels before and after surgery. The degree of weight loss was categorised as more than 30kg, 30-25kg, 25-20kg and 20-15kg. Improvements in blood glucose and insulin were then compared between the three different surgical procedures accounting for the degree of weight loss.

After 10 years, the researchers found there was no significant difference in the changes to insulin and glucose levels between the three surgical groups when the extent of their weight loss was taken into account. This was true for patients with and without diabetes at baseline. The average 10 year weight losses were 18kg, 20kg and 29kg for the banding, GBP and VBG groups respectively (p<0.001). In a further analysis patients that lost the same amount of weight improved their blood glucose and insulin levels to similar degrees, regardless of the type of surgery.

The researchers conclude that the remarkable improvements in diabetes following weight loss surgery are not a direct result of the procedure itself. More research now needs to take place to investigate why bariatric surgery can cure diabetes in these patients, and why some patients respond better than others.

Associate Professor Markku Peltonen, Director of Department at the National Institute for Health and Welfare, Finland, said:

"Bariatric surgery is clearly effective in reducing weight in patients, but the current mystery is why so many patients appear to cure themselves of diabetes shortly after the operation.

"We would expect that some methods of weight loss surgery would be more effective at treating diabetes than others due to the different ways they alter the passage of food through our gut. When we factored in the weight lost following surgery we found that no procedure was any better at treating diabetes than another.

"Perhaps it is simply the act of losing weight that helps."

How to Lose Weight in the Spring & Summer

Posted: May 8, 2012 at 11:10 am

Is spring and summer weight loss easier or harder than other times of the year? It's up to you. Warmer weather can be "the best of times or the worst of times" for successful weight loss.

For example, how can you resist all the in-your-face fattening foods you're confronted with at picnics, weddings, amusement parks, fairs, ball games and during summer vacation trips? After all, a major part of fun-in-the-sun for many people is all the rich and tempting foods.

Healthy Spring and Summer Weight Loss Tips

Summer weight loss success doesn't have to mean staying home with your celery. By getting clear about your weight loss goals and planning ahead, you'll be able to say, "No thank you" to all the hot dogs, potato salad, sodas, cotton candy and fried dough.

If you haven't already reached your summer weight loss swimsuit targets, here are seven simple weight loss tips for super successful summer weight loss slimming.

1. Plan your summer to support your goal. You can't expect to win the "battle of the bulge" without a clear strategy, especially since it takes changing a lifetime of bad old habits. So plan your summer campaign and visualize a successful winning outcome.

2. Drink "water, water everywhere!" Water has zero calories, helps curb your appetite, keeps you cool and hydrated in the summer heat and quenches your thirst better than anything else. So learn to love it. Add a twist of lemon or try herbal iced tea.

3. Exercise first thing in the morning. Morning's the perfect time to beat the heat with exercise and weight training. You can get your weight loss plans off to a great start, burn calories and rev up your metabolism before the hot sun makes you feel lazy.

4. Pack healthy low calorie snacks to go. Don't leave it to chance. Take plenty of portable calorie-counted mini meals wherever you go chopped veggies, strips of cooked chicken breast, fresh fruit, low fat cheese or even a low cal sandwich.

5. Focus on low calorie high fiber foods. Keep a bowl of raw baby carrots, snap peas, red pepper strips or lightly steamed cold broccoli, cauliflower or green beans for snacks. By choosing from this healthy vegetable list youll fill up first on foods high in fiber.

Manchester Chiropractor Provides Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program

Posted: May 8, 2012 at 11:10 am

MANCHESTER, Mo., May 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Manchester chiropractor Dr. Brad Mawer, of Morningstar Spinal Correction Center, now provides the Ideal Protein weight loss program to his patients. According to Dr. Mawer, he decided to start offering the diet and nutrition program because of all the research pointing toward obesity as a major factor in a long list of diseases and painful conditions. Dr. Mawer's center provides nutritional counseling, support and an assortment of the program's gourmet food products. After researching various nutrition programs, he felt this protein program effectively addressed the metabolic processes behind obesity in order to help people lose weight over the long term.

Dr. Mawer says that the Ideal Protein program has helped many of his Manchester weight loss patients reach their goals. "This program is working for my patients because it isn't just another diet; it was medically developed to address metabolic disorders common in the Western Hemisphere from the overabundance of refined carbs in our diets. Dr. Tran Tien Chanh developed this program over 25 years ago and it's still going strong, helping people burn excess fat while maintaining the muscle mass critical to maintaining a healthy body structure." Dr. Mawer says that even patients who had struggled to lose weight for years are finally losing weight and keeping it off on this program.

Dr. Mawer says that helping people lose weight is one of his major goals. He cites a growing library of scientific literature demonstrating how obesity worsens everything from diabetes and heart disease to arthritis and back pain. He explains that he sees obesity's negative effects in patients almost daily. He says that excess weight puts stress on a person's posture, causing the spine to shift out of alignment, which then leads to pinched nerves in the spine. He provides spinal adjustments to correct the misalignment, but until the weight comes off, the extra weight threatens to keep stressing the spine. The key, he says, is to help the patient lose weight.

According to Dr. Mawer, people who want to lose weight are often more successful on a medical program with doctor supervision. He says that because each of his patients undergoes a complete exam and nutritional counseling before beginning the diet, they know what they need to do to succeed. The extra support from the doctor and the gourmet foods also provide the incentive they need to stay focused on their goals.

Dr. Mawer says that helping people feel better about themselves and their health is the biggest benefit of the nutritional counseling program. "True health is a state of body and mind. When people experience how much better they feel physically and mentally after losing weight, they want to stick with it. Their risk factors for disease, their pain levels; all of those things decrease and they feel energized. I love seeing that."

Dr. Mawer has been practicing in Missouri for the past 8 years. His website is located at http://www.morningstarscc.com.
