Thanksgiving Strategy

Written by

Thanksgiving Day shouldn't be a day we deprive ourselves. It's unrealistic to think of trying to "diet" on that day. But I'm not saying to go crazy either with excessive amounts of foods just because it may be expected. And you certainly don't want to backslide with any progress you have previously made.

Healthy Food on a Budget, Part 1

Written by

At a glance for people who are used to eating highly processed and fast foods, it may seem those foods are cheaper than healthy fresh foods. Today's blog will be part of a two part segment to show you ways to eat healthy on a budget.

The problem is that processed foods and fast foods do not promote health or weight management in a favorable way due to all the sugar, highly refined and processed carbohydrates, additives, chemicals, fat (particularly trans fats), and the high sodium they contain.

A Healthy Lifestyle - Change - Success

Written by

If you are to be successful in the long haul there has to be a true "gut level" acceptance of making healthier food choices as part of your current lifestyle - for life!" It means planning and shopping for meals ahead of time, cooking more, eating less, giving up favorite foods on a day-to-day basis, practicing moderation, and learning to get right back on track after a slip-up, among numerous other things. As challenging as all this is, it takes this internal level of acceptance to integrate all these things into your current lifestyle which may not always be easy to do, especially if you have struggled with unhealthy eating in the past.

Diabetics Need More Nutrients

Written by

We all want to be healthy and fit. We all want and deserve optimal health. Diabetics in general need more nutrients due to all the cellular damage which occurs inside the body. This is called oxidative stress from high levels of free radicals that damage arteries throughout the body. Diabetics should understand that there is more of a need for antioxidant support to reduce this oxidative stress.

  • 7 million people are undiagnosed.
  • Diabetes kills slowly.
  • Why is it termed the “silent killer?” You may simply not know you have diabetes because it doesn’t have any obvious symptoms initially.
  • Diabetes causes blood sugar to be too high and over time it damages many parts of your body similarly to how sugar slowly erodes your tooth enamel and causes cavities.
  • Specifically, the cells in the body can't turn the blood sugar into energy, the sugar builds up and it:
  • Directly damages your heart, kidneys, eyes, liver, pancreas, and your nerves.
  • Results in blindness, kidney disease, gum disease, neuropathy, amputations, stroke, erectile dysfunction, heart attack, cancer, coma and just plain death, and not without inflicting a lot of pain and discomfort along the way.
