America Wasn't Born Fat, We Just Eat More Than We Burn

America Wasn't Born Fat, We Just Eat More Than We Burn

Commented Jan 20, 2010 at 10:24:15 in Healthy Living

“Great info, and nice to remember you likely weren't born that way, we've just adapted our eating/activity patterns in such a way that begs for weight gain. Sad to say that it appears other countries may be going down a similar route. The younger generations in Europe and even parts of Asia are adopting US eating habits (read more food, especially of the sugary fried variety). Something needs to change.

When Calling a Woman "Skinny" Isn't a Compliment Anymore

Commented Dec 22, 2009 at 11:47:51 in Style

“I've never liked the word "skinny," especially when said in that high pitched kiss-kiss voice that often accompanies the (perhaps underhanded) compliment - "you look so skeeen-eey." I'll take "svelte," "healthy," "great," or even "thin"... but not "skinny." It speaks of malnourished heroin chic to me, unbearable and unattainable supermodel physiques, a world of extremes. God bless those supermodels for their outrageous genes, but I don't look that way and that's okay. There is nothing more lovely than a woman at her ideal weight, and "skinny" has nothing to do with that for most of us. Here's to your ideal weight, whether 105 or 185, I think you look GREAT!”

Top 6 Tips To Improve Your Diet During the Holidays

Commented Dec 22, 2009 at 10:52:58 in Healthy Living

“Great advice on sticking to somewhat healthy eating during the season of fudge, sugar cookies, endless pies, and more fudge. It is great to eat raw fruits and veg for their enzyme content. A digestive enzyme supplement can also help with difficult digestion and move food through the digesitve tract more efficiently. Most important is to remain conscious while eating, I think. Yes, you did just create a fourth fudge and snickerdoodle snowman sandwich, and yes you are washing it down with yet another jug of eggnog....oh wait, that's me...

How Family Holidays Feed Body Image Anxiety

How Family Holidays Feed Body Image Anxiety

Commented Nov 18, 2009 at 10:41:23 in Healthy Living

“Fantastic advice! Body image, in large part, is all about how you feel. And how you feel does not always correlate to the number on the scale. As soon as I embraced my body just as it is, a whole new world opened up. For a moment, I glimpsed what other people saw when they looked at me. And --cellulite, short legs and all -- I must say the view ain't half bad!

Five Ways To Reduce Inflammation Naturally

Five Ways To Reduce Inflammation Naturally

Commented Aug 31, 2009 at 12:40:09 in Healthy Living

“The best natural fix I've found for inflammation is serratiotpeptidase (also known as serrapetase). That long name refers to a natural protein enzyme that the silk moth uses to break down its cocoon. It works throughout the body to break up cellular debris left over after inflammation has subsided. This debris collects and can reaggravate inflammation. I like Nutri-Health's AthroZyme, which contains serratiopeptidase.

Shut Up and Eat: Pasta and Cannolis for Comfort Eaters?

Commented Aug 18, 2009 at 11:54:50 in Healthy Living

“Sounds like a great meeting of the minds between eating mindfully and enjoying food. I agree, the two are very related. I never see eating mindfully as depriving oneself or moving into "diet mentality," but rather being aware of what you're eating, how you're eating it, and when you're eating it. Looking forward to checking out both books!

The Flat Belly Food You Don't Know About: Kefir

The Flat Belly Food You Don't Know About: Kefir

Commented Aug 5, 2009 at 10:48:40 in Healthy Living

“Flat belly food doesn't just mean less belly fat, but it means less bloat too. Bloating actually accounts for a lot of the distended belly size we deal with. I have yet to try kefir, but I know that probiotic supplements really help with gas and bloating and other digestive issues. And, since the majority of your immune cells live in your gut, probiotics also support your immune system.

Dental Health and Menopause

Commented Aug 4, 2009 at 18:21:02 in Healthy Living

“I deal with mild periodontitis, and have to be very vigilant about cleaning and keeping bacteria levels in my mouth at a low level. I've read that swishing with probiotics in water can help keep the bacterial balance in the mouth at healthy levels...I haven't checked in with my dentist yet on this, maybe Dr. Butensky has more information?

Eat Your Way To Enlightenment

“What a cool way to approach food, mindfully and present in the process of eating. I will skip this exercise for chicken nuggets, but the bag of cherries I'm looking at could be a good candidate. I especially like the global aspect of this...how many conditions, people, and circumstances had to align to produce this one bit of food? An exercise in gratitude indeed!

The Surprising Reasons You're Not Sleeping (And 9 Ways To Get Over Them)

Commented Mar 10, 2009 at 19:10:46 in Healthy Living

“There is always some excuse why we worry too much to sleep. Bottom line is good habits. I stick to my night time ritual that really helps get my body in sleep mode. It's like putting a kid to bed, subtle cues are important. You can also try a natural sleep aid I found at http://www.nutri-health.com/probiotics/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=2&idproduct=14. Now quit reading and get some sleep!”
Do You Struggle with Your Body Image?

Do You Struggle with Your Body Image?

Commented Mar 10, 2009 at 18:54:56 in Healthy Living

“It is so nice to be reminded of the power of affirmations in changing our images of ourselves, especially our bodies. I still struggle with body image from time to time, but I noticed that when this was a really big issue in my life my body actually felt worse the more negatively I thought about it. Sometimes I'd stare at my poor innocent thighs and actually pity them the vehemence I'd often send their way. Body image is certainly a multi-layered and complicated thing.

The Year of the Ox: 2009

Commented Feb 3, 2009 at 11:41:14 in Healthy Living

“It feels like the Year of the Ox is just what we need—to return to what’s really important and get back to the basics. For me, this means taking care of myself and approaching life with a focus on moderation, not excess. Sound financial decisions and health seem to be on many minds at the moment, I know that these two topics are key for me this year.

I appreciated the author’s attention to digestive health in particular. We are seeing digestive health issues on the rise, and our digestion affects our entire body including immunity. Personally, I’m focused on prevention through a whole foods diet, reduced sugar intake, and a probiotic supplement to help replenish friendly flora in my digestive tract. Here’s to a balanced, prioritized new year!
