  • Exercise and Weight loss

    One of the BIGGEST misunderstandings when it comes to weight loss is that it will not happen unless you exercise. This is false, yes you read that correctly, weight loss cannot be done with strictly exercise ALONE. Exercise has many beneficial factors to it so please do not read this article and think that exercise is not healthy. It still is very important to overall health, it is just not the key role in weight loss. Research has been conducted for years to prove that it is not that important for weight loss.Exercise only accounts for a small portion of daily caloric burn

  • Mindful Eating and Eating Decisions

    A key to a healthy lifestyle change and a diet is consistency and determination. The human body needs and likes consistency. Mindful eating or eating consciously is a technique that helps you gain control and regulate your eating habits. It has been shown to cause weight loss, reduce binge eating, and help your overall health. Unconscious eating patterns are the most common theme and struggle among clients. Usually weigh gain is accidental; the outcome of a busy life, emotional stress, mental stress, or even mental weakness. All of these can lead to unconscious eating habits and accidental weight gain.

  • Glutathione

    Glutathione, also known as gamma-glutamylcysteinylglycine (GSH), is a tripeptide. A tripeptide is a peptide consisting of three amino acids (cysteine, glycine, and glutamic acid). Peptides are extremely diverse and play a large amount of important roles throughout the body. Peptides make up proteins, some act as hormones; act as structural components for muscles and much more!

  • Water and Weight Loss

    One largely overlooked component to a new healthy lifestyle is water intake. Staying hydrated and drinking enough water is key for many factors from digestion to muscle function. Every single cell within the human body needs water to function properly. Nuviva recommends 8 (8oz.) glasses of water each day in order to insure that everyone is getting enough. This amount can differ based on a person's lifestyle and needs so if you feel like you need more water, drink it!

  • Weight Loss Myths

    If you type "Weight Loss" into your search bar you will be bombarded with fad diets, magic pills, cleanses, and so many other tips, tricks, or scams. How can you tell what is the truth? How can you tell what will work? It's frustrating to have to filter through these results. The trial and error that can come from each technique can make it seem impossible to lose weight.

  • Sugars & Added Sugars

    Added sugars may be the single unhealthiest thing in the modern diet and can be hidden in many ways by food processing companies. Leading added sugar sources are sugar-sweetened beverages, grain-based desserts (cakes and cookies), candy, and dairy desserts like ice cream. These common treats store many different types of hidden sugars and can be harmful when overly consumed!

  • Portion Control

    A popular topic of conversation when discussing weight loss or developing a healthy lifestyle is mostly what foods to avoid and what foods to eat. One commonly misunderstood topic is; if it's good for you, you can eat it whenever and as much as you want. This is incorrect. Portion control is so important to weight loss, maintaining a properly functioning digestive system, and a healthy lifestyle. Eating the right portions is just as important as eating the right foods.

  • Fiber

    Fiber is a largely overlooked necessity to weight loss. It's suggested for men to aim to eat 30-38 grams and women should aim for 21-25 grams of fiber each day. It can help with weight loss. It can also lower your blood pressure and improve your body's response to insulin. A simple diet with fiber intake is just as effective as the complicated dieting fads. However it is best not to eat a lot of fiber right away but to increase your intake slowly to improve your body's response.

  • Mix It Up; Don't Get Bored with Your Diet!

    So this week, I am approaching this article with the intent of it being a more useful article for everyday or every week. This article will be a good reference for you when you are grocery shopping or organizing your groceries when you get back home. People tend to struggle when looking for items at the grocery store that add a little variety to their diet. This will provide you with variety and hopefully inspire your future trips to the grocery store. Another tip is to change up the spices or seasoning that you use while cooking. You can continue to buy the same exact things but with different seasoning it makes a larger variety in your meals. I try to have Mexican inspired meals one night a week. I also like to add in low sugar balsamic vinegar on top of my vegetables for a different flavor or kick! Some options that may help prepare for the week are stocking up on backups. I like to use frozen vegetables or meals as a back up during the week. I always have a couple sides and a couple entrees available in my freezer. They're usually used on late night, or low energy nights. They're a great stress reliever when you realize you have nothing planned or prepared for dinner! I typically grab frozen cauliflower-there are a lot of different brands that offer riced, mashed, and steamed cauliflower. These are easy because they're already prepared in so many different varieties.

  • Ground Turkey Meal Prep

  • Take a Look at these Superfoods

    Superfoods. This term is defined as "a food (such as salmon, broccoli, or blueberries) that is rich in compounds (such as antioxidants, fiber, or fatty acids) considered to be beneficial to a person's health."There is no scientifically based or regulated definition for superfoods.This term is used as more of a reference to foods that offer high levels of desirable nutrients that are linked to prevention of a disease or is believed to offer several simultaneous health benefits beyond its nutritional value.

  • Food Color Wheel

    One common question that seems to be trending is "what can I eat for lunch instead of salad?". Eating the same salad every day can make this experience and lifestyle change a little difficult.

So the introduction to the food color wheel and its concept is something that is exciting-it brings creativity, nutrient-rich dishes, and makes salads SO much more fun!

  • Net Carbohydrates...What, How, and Why?

    A common question throughout this new lifestyle process refers to Net Carbs. "What are Net Carbs? How do I determine the amount of them? Why should I be aware of them?" All of these questions are extremely important within a healthy lifestyle.
    Net Carbohydrates are the carbs in your diet that can be absorbed and used for energy. They are the total carbohydrates minus fiber and sugar alcohols, this gives you the total net carbohydrates found within that food. Fibers and sugar alcohol pass through your digestion without breaking down so your body doesn't utilize them.
    Net carbs are the amount of grams of carbohydrates that impact your blood sugar level. The less a food interferes with your blood sugar level the less likely it is to interfere with your weight loss. Therefore it is important to be aware of how what you eat reacts within your body. Fiber is a carbohydrate from plants that humans can't process. Sugar alcohol has a different molecular structure from that of sugar molecules. This leaves them partially or completely indigestible by humans.

  • Improving the Metabolism

    Metabolism is the chemical processes that occur within a living organism in order to maintain life. It is a very common word when it comes to the topic of nutrition, health, and weight loss. The metabolism is a system made up of two types of processes; turning what we eat and drink into energy, and using that energy to keep us surviving through vital functions such as breathing, circulation, digestion, and movement. The metabolism relates to food but there is a lot more to it. Metabolism is affected by multiple circumstances while we age. Steps should be taken to improve the metabolism for a healthier life.

There is science behind making these attempts more realistic. When we set our goals, any set back can cause frustration and make it more difficult. There are a lot of actions that can negatively impact the quality of life and health. Healthier choices can potentially reduce the risk for heart problems such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and obesity.
