The Science of Fat

The Science of Fat | Healthy Lifestyle | Scoop.it
If you're anything like over sixty percent of Americans, you've got a few pounds of fat you could stand to lose. If you saw what a pound of body fat actually looks like, you might be double-motivated. Yet there are a ton of misconceptions about fat--some of which could inform mistakes in our weight-loss endeavors. Let's see if we can't cut through some of the misinformation with a little bit of knowledge.

7 Seasonal Rituals & Remedies to Ward Off Colds & Flu

7 Seasonal Rituals & Remedies to Ward Off Colds & Flu | Healthy Lifestyle | Scoop.it

"I love running through the trees during fall. My feet crunching the fallen leaves, all the vibrant colors of red, orange and yellow! I love the crispness in the air, that perfect feeling of wearing a sweater..

 

First of all, let me clear up a HUGE misconception about why more people get sick in the winter compared to warmer times of the year.  You should realize that there’s no such thing as ”catching a cold” from cold temperatures

 

In fact, did you know that there are multiple studies that actually show that exposure to cold increases your immunity?  It’s true!  One study I read recently even showed that cold therapy such as ice water baths or other cold water exposure (such as cold water swimming) stimulates your immune system.

 

What about so-called “germs”?...

It's a good idea to stay as healthy as you can during the winter time. A healthy person doing daily exercise is less likely to have the flu or winter cold. And someone who is older or ill is even more vulnerable. Take care of yourself during these cold winter months.

I'm always interested in "10 best" lists.  Everyone has their opinion, but when it comes to superfoods, I usually want to hear all about it...

Jessica Walker's curator insight, August 26, 2015 4:19 AM

Plus- Talks about overall best superfoods to have in your everyday diet. This will be good to refer to when deciding which foods i should look into.

Minus- The article was written back in 2013, so the foods may be thought about differently now.

Interesting- All the foods mentioned are natural, non processed foods, and although the article was written a while back, the foods seem to still be counted as the typical superfoods.

Reliability-The source was written by a health writer who specialises in heath and fitness, although what she is saying may be true, she is not a qualified nutritionalist so what she is stating may not be reliable.

Eating healthy is cheaper than you think.

Eating healthy is cheaper than you think. | Healthy Lifestyle | Scoop.it

Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) crunched the numbers and it’s official: the healthiest diets cost just $1.50 more than unhealthy diets.

 While cost is an issue in when it comes to adding more fresh produce and leaner meats such as fish in your daily diet, few studies have actually evaluated how much more expensive a healthier diet might be. An analysis of 27 studies from 10 higher income countries that compared price points for healthy and less healthy diets. The price differences per serving and per 200 calories for a variety of specific foods, as well as prices per day and per 2,000 calories, which is the average daily recommended caloric intake for U.S. adults.

The results confirm that healthier fare, like fruits, veggies and fish are more expensive than unhealthy foods like processed meals and snacks and refined grains.  However, swapping out some of these less expensive, and less healthy foods, for fresher and more nutritious ones added up to only about $1.50 more per day.

Seth Bilazarian, MD's curator insight, December 6, 2013 6:03 PM

The cost, convenience and accessibility of fast food outlets like McDonald's & KFC challenges healthy eating. In my neighborhood, McDonald's offers the family combo (2 Big Macs, 2 McChickens, 4 small fries, 4 small sodas) for $9.99.  KFC has rolled out its $10 Weekend Bucket that offers 10 pieces of chicken for $10.
The value of this research from HSPH is that we can teach that the cost is not an impediment to healthy eating for most Americans.  Fast food accessibility and ease of use is still something that requires education: it's easier to buy a meal at a drive through window than it is to make a salad.
Like most healthy life strategies including exercise and diet - the healthy way is not the easier way.

Harvard study provides best evidence yet that nuts may reduce risk of death

Harvard study provides best evidence yet that nuts may reduce risk of death | Healthy Lifestyle | Scoop.it

New research provides strongest evidence to date that eating nuts can reduce a person’s risk of dying from cancer, heart disease, and a number of other causes.  The study, published Wednesday in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, involved more than 118,000 healthy volunteers and found that those who regularly consumed a one-ounce daily serving of walnuts, almonds, cashews, or other tree nuts had a 20% lower risk of dying from any cause during the three-decade long study compared to those who did not eat nuts. Nut eaters were 25 percent less likely to die from heart disease, 10 percent less likely to die from cancer, and 20 percent less likely to die from diabetes as well as lung diseases. The study found that nut eaters enjoyed longer lifespans even if they did not exercise, avoided fruits and vegetables, and were overweight. A decade ago, the Food and Drug Administration determined that there was enough evidence to announce to Americans that eating 1½ ounces of nuts each day “may reduce the risk of heart disease.”

Seth Bilazarian, MD's curator insight, November 24, 2013 3:00 PM

When thinking about adding nuts to your diet its hard not to think about the adage that, "you are what you eat".  But eating nuts is definitely not only not "nuts" but quite nutritionally sensible.  Tree nuts are nutritious foods filled with folate, potassium, fiber, good monounsaturated fats, and antioxidants.  In addition, snacking on nuts makes it less likely non-healthy snacks of processed foods and foods containing trans-fats are in the diet.  Peanuts are not nuts.

5 Exercises People Hate, but Why You Should Do Them Anyway: Burpees, Planks, Push Ups

5 Exercises People Hate, but Why You Should Do Them Anyway: Burpees, Planks, Push Ups | Healthy Lifestyle | Scoop.it
We really hate to do burpees, planks, push ups and other exercises that really push our limits, but personal trainer Pamela Hernandez tells us why we should love the results these activities deliver.

 

There are three benefits to hiring a personal trainer. The first is accountability. Having someone waiting on you helps insure you get to the gym. The second is structure. We have enough to think about, letting someone else put together the workout is a huge time saver. The third is having someone who pushes you out of your comfort zone and makes you do the exercises you hate.

 

Even the most devoted exerciser has at least one exercise they love to hate. We hate it when we’re doing it, but we love the way we feel or look afterwards. I did an informal poll of my clients and came up with the five exercises they love to hate (and why we should all do them anyway).

The Blueprint To Becoming A Grill Master In Less Than 5 Minutes

The Blueprint To Becoming A Grill Master In Less Than 5 Minutes | Healthy Lifestyle | Scoop.it

Cooking with fire is a process of discovery. You're figuring out the flames and their rhythms on the grill, which dictate how the food should be prepared.

 

(1) For fuel, we've found that the denser and harder the wood, the hotter it burns and the longer it stays hot.  I'll burn a hardwood such as oak or maple for that lasting heat, plus cherry, apple, or other fruitwood, which creates soft, sweet flavors.

 

(2) Some foods are too delicate for direct contact with the flame but still taste amazing grilled. We place the meat on a plank made from an old pinot noir wine barrel set over a high flame.

 

The heat and smoke that rise up around the wood cook the meat slowly, while the stave imparts a vanilla-oak taste.

 

(3) For quicker-cooking vegetables such as young carrots, green beans, asparagus, or Brussels sprouts,I blanch them first so they keep their color, put them in a grilling basket over a very hot flame, and shake them until they brown and char around the edges.

 

(4) For vegetables that need more time such as eggplant or leeks,I start them on higher heat to get a good sear, then move them to a cooler part of the grill to cook through.

 

(5) For roasting a bird or large cut of meat, like a leg of lamb, using indirect heat, we employ a rotisserie, which ensures even cooking and is self-basting—the fat and juices bathe and moisten the meat as it turns.

 

(6) I'll even put a pineapple on the rotisserie, because it's such a dense fruit and needs ambient heat to cook and stay succulent.

Winning the war against aging is not achieved by drinking a daily shot glass filled with the mystical juice of a magical berry from Southeast Asia.

 

In fact, aging is best kept at bay by fighting off chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes, which accelerate the aging process and are the main causes of premature death.

 

Although accelerated aging -- and aging in general -- is a complex process, you can fight it with five simple daily habits.

7 Tips To Bounce Back After Eating A Bit Too Much

7 Tips To Bounce Back After Eating A Bit Too Much | Healthy Lifestyle | Scoop.it

"No matter how healthy we are in our "normal" lives, most of us tend to loosen the reigns a little bit (or a lot) during the holidays. If you have a tendency to get into that all-or-nothing mentality, you might just wake up on January 1st wondering where all your healthy habits went."

 

Personally, I relate to this: I have a super addictive personality, so when I get into something, I have a tendency to go all in. With a little experimentation, though, I've found that it doesn't have to be so extreme. If you put a little intention into your self care, you can continue to show up for life in a vibrant, energetic state—even during the season of endless indulgences!

Kombucha has many health benefits. It's not just a delicious alternative to soda, it's a health tonic.

 

I started drinking the kombucha six years ago when I learned about all the health benefits.

Kombucha is so much better than soda. Why have a fizzy drink with aspartame and caramel coloring when you can have a drink rich in B vitamins and probiotic bacteria that helps to heal your gut and build your immunity?

What is Kombucha?

Kombucha is a naturally carbonated, fermented tea. As you may know, fermented foods are very good for you.

Making the most of the social life of health | Healthy Lifestyle | Scoop.it

Last week Pew Internet released yet another fascinating study about how Americans use the Internet. According to their interviews, adults with chronic conditions are more likely to look up information about medical problems, treatments and drugs than adults who don't have any conditions. They are also more likely to read online reviews about medical treatments (and providers)--and more likely to read or watch information about the health experience of other people.  People with chronic conditions are also more likely to check in with their doctors about what they find on the Internet. When people with chronic conditions "self-diagnose" from Internet info, 60 percent check that diagnosis with a doctor, as opposed to 48 percent of healthy people who self-diagnose. Part of that reason may simply be that they see their doctor more often.

It's not something you might think about often, but your pee can tell you a lot about your body. This graphic from Cleveland Clinic shows what different urine hues might say about your health.

 

In particular, pee color—which ranges from completely clear to golden and even weirder colors like blue or green—can tell you if you're hydrated enough. It's useful to know that if you don't see any color you might be drinking too much water, while the darker yellow and amber colors are signs to go fill your water glass.
