The Diverticulitis Cookbook: Feel Better, by Eating Better: 30 Day Meal Plan and Recipes

Friday, May 17th, 2013

Learn to Feel Better by Eating Better. The Diverticuliculitis Diet Cookbook will teach you how to prevent diverticulitis flareups from occurring. The book includes a 30 day meal plan and more than 110 easy to make, delicious recipes designed to heal your body. I would like to share with you my experience with Diverticular disease. Several years ago, my mother was diagnosed with Diverticulitis. We had never heard of this medical condition before, and at that time there was very little information about it. When we asked the doctor how to prevent a Diverticulitis attack from occurring again, his advice was don’t eat nuts and seeds! Over the next few years, she followed her general practitioner’s well-meaning advice, but still suffered several Diverticulitis attacks and had no relief from the pain. Sick and tired of the pain and being afraid of her next attack, both of us embarked on a journey to take her health into our own hands. Working with the esteemed Andrea Johnson, a well-known, registered clinical dietician and researcher, we developed a cookbook and meal plan that actually worked! The recipes were compiled based on their health value, high fiber content and because they taste really good. We wouldn’t have been able to get my picky-eater mom to eat our recipes if they weren’t absolutely yummy!! Not only that, they are easy to make. You don’t have to be a master chef or have loads of time to prepare these meals.

Understanding Type 2 Diabetes: Fewer Highs, Fewer Lows, Better Health

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Diabetes is the world’s modern pandemic. But it needn’t mean a world of frustration, restrictions and complications. Most people with diabetes are able to live full, free and healthy lives. It just takes clear understanding and good management.

In ‘Understanding Type 2 Diabetes’, Professor Merlin Thomas of the renowned Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute clearly explains:
• What diabetes is and how it comes about.
• What is the right diet for someone with diabetes, and how to achieve it.
• How exercise can improve and maintain your health.
• The medical aspects of diabetes care, including the best ways to control your waistline, blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
• How to prevent and treat the major complications of diabetes.

Having diabetes is not easy. But its management needn’t be complex or complicated. With ‘Understanding Type 2 Diabetes’ to guide you, you’ll soon realise that successfully managing diabetes is not only feasible but is also essential.

Professor Merlin Thomas is a clinician scientist at Baker IDI. He works extensively with patients with diabetes and their doctors, as well as performing research in experimental models of diabetic complications. He has written over two hundred papers, book chapters and books on diabetes management. His work on diabetic complications has received both local and international recognition including the Victorian Premier’s Award for Medical Research.

Baker IDI Heart & Diabetes Institute is the foremost medical institute in Australasia for research into diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Baker IDI’s work extends from the laboratory to wide-scale community studies with a focus on diagnosis, prevention and treatment.

 

40-30-30 Fat Burning Nutrition: The Dietary Hormonal Connection to Permanent Weight Loss and Better Health

Friday, April 19th, 2013

• More than 400,000 copies in print
• Great supermarket shopping lists
• Guides for eating out, fast foods and prepared meals
• Vegetarian meals and recipes

Pioneering weight loss and sports nutritionists Joyce and Gene Daoust were part of the original team that worked with Dr. Barry Sears, developing and testing the “Zone Diet.” You’ll learn how to eat balanced meals: 40 percent of your calories coming from carbohydrates, 30 percent from protein and 30 percent from fat. You’ll begin to burn fat, add muscle and increase your metabolism. Best of all, your body will keep the weight off once you reach your goal.Eating the right balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fat creates a hormonal response that leads to burning stored fat for energy, claim nutritionists Joyce and Gene Daoust. This book explains how the 40-30-30 diet works (40 percent high fiber, mostly low-glycemic carbohydrate; 30 percent high-quality protein; 30 percent fat), and how to plan meals following this formula. The “Sample Starter Meal Planners” are organized into three meal categories: Regular, Fat-Flush, and Vegetarian (heavy on cheese, eggs, tofu, and tempeh). There are a few recipes, such as Hearty Chili, Teriyaki Chicken Kabobs, Pizza, and Tortilla Turkey Roll-Up, and many quickly assembled meals, such as Scrambled Eggs, Tuna on Rye Crackers, and Open-Faced Ham Sandwich. A food value guide gives the protein, carbohydrate, and fat grams of many common foods. Though some nutrition experts would argue that this diet is too low in carbohydrates and too high in protein, the Daousts say that “There are no good or bad foods….The key is achieving the proper balance of the foods that you eat.”

 

Eat Better Tips (or how I lost 115 lbs in 15 months without being able to exercise!!)

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

These are six simple tips that I used when I needed to lose a lot of weight and was not able to exercise due to a back condition. This isn’t a long read. I give you the few things I followed and why they’re really common sense that I just never thought about until it was almost too late.

Hopefully it will inspire you and help you reach your goal, no matter if its 15 or 115 lbs. you need to lose. Or maybe you can’t or just don’t have time to exercise to make up for your bad eating habits.

This is not some fad diet or miracle cure. It’s just some simple things that are common sense but most of us don’t normally consider that for me personally made an incredible difference and allowed me to get dramatically healthier without dieting or starving myself. The simplest thing I could say is that I made it a simple math problem of needing to get from point A to point B and what I was doing was driving in the opposite direction. It was surprisingly simple once I had a plan that was just as simple and didn’t require dramatic changes which never worked for me in the past when tried.

Even if this can spark your own answer to your personal math problem it will be well worth both of our time.

Once you’ve finished reading this chapter, you will be ready to head to the grocery store to begin preparing healthy balanced meals.

Finally, Chapter 4 answers countless other questions you may have about diabetes, including topics about traveling while managing diabetes to whether or not a diabetic diet is right for the entire family.

This will ensure that you have the means to get your diabetes under control, so that you can begin living the healthy, active life you have always dreamed of!

 

The Book of Better: Life with Diabetes Can’t Be Perfect. Make It Better.

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

I have diabetes. I’ve lived with it for years and years. I’ve done everything to learn as much as I can about it. I’ve made more idiot mistakes—accidentally and on purpose—with diabetes than you think would be safe. I’ve managed to stay very healthy. And by some standards, my life is pretty “normal.”

Throughout my extended career as a person with diabetes, the most important fact I have learned is that ANY BIT BETTER (…3%…5%…28%…91%…) IS STILL BETTER. It might be the most important thing you can know about your diabetes. Maybe we can’t make it go away.

Maybe we can’t make it perfect. Maybe we’re still mad that we got stuck with it. But we absolutely CAN make it BETTER. It’s not always easy, but it’s not complicated either. Diabetes gets Better if you make it Better.

Healing Honey: A Natural Remedy for Better Health and Wellness

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

Too much sugar can be bad for our health. Not only can it make us overweight and sluggish, but it can also contribute to many diseases including diabetes, atherosclerosis, and vascular disease. But what can we do? Sugar is everywhere – and the simple truth is that food manufacturers are concerned more about profit than consumer health. As with most things, nature appears to have provided the solution: honey. The medicinal properties of honey have been recognized for literally hundreds of years, but until recently, they have been nothing more than folklore. However, this is beginning to change. Over the last 20-30 years, scientists have discovered that there is real truth to the belief that honey is good for your health. Honey has been revealed to have a high antioxidant content and contain a unique blend of sugars, vitamins, and other ingredients. We know now that consuming honey can offer not only sweetness, but the chance for a healthier life.

The Advanced Mediterranean Diet: Lose Weight, Feel Better, Live Longer

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

The author’s goal is to help overweight people lose weight while eating Mediterranean-style, ultimately leading to better health and longevity. The traditional Mediterranean diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, olive oil, fish, judicious amounts of wine, with minimal saturated fats. Scientists in the mid-20th century found that this diet, coupled with an active lifestyle, was associated with longer life and less chronic disease. Over the last 10 years, nutrition researchers have identified which components of the Mediterranean diet, and in what amounts, lead to the observed health and longevity benefits. Dr. Steve Parker (M.D.), enhances the traditional Mediterranean diet by incorporating these latest scientific breakthroughs.

The book begins with a review of nutrition and physiology, then discusses the the consequences of overweight and obesity, and the benefits of exercise. Next is a review of psychological issues surrounding body weight, and determination of an individual’s reasonable goal weight. After this foundation is laid, Dr. Parker explains the details of his weight-loss plan. Most diet books allow for only one or two levels of caloric intake. Here, four different eating plans are laid out: 1100, 1500, 1900, and 2300 calories. The recommended caloric intake is determined by the individual’s sex and current weight.

This is not a low-fat or low-carbohydrate diet. The eating plan approximates the traditional Mediterranean diet by suggesting the optimal intake of fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, whole grains, dairy products, olive oil, meat, chicken, eggs, and fish. Wine is optional. Dieters choose from an extensive list of doctor-approved foods that are readily available at supermarkets. Easy recipes are provided but are optional. The author specifies how much of which nutrients confer the health and longevity benefits. For example, fish is in the traditional Mediterranean diet, but how much and what kind yield the health benefits? The author’s clear answer: two servings per week of, preferably, cold-water fatty fish such as trout, salmon, or tuna.

After explaining how physical activity helps with weight loss and prevention of weight regain, Dr. Parker teaches even the most sedentary reader how to implement a mild-to-moderate exercise program. He also emphasizes the importance of physical activity for prevention of diseases such as cancer, diabetes, dementia, and heart attacks.

A chapter is devoted to adaptation of the program by people with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Later chapters explain the pros and cons of weight-loss (bariatric) surgery and weight-loss pills and nutritional supplements. The last chapter discusses long-term weight control issues and prevention of weight regain. The appendix has a recommended reading list (bibliography), list of helpful Internet resources, and recipes. Two hundred specific scientific journal articles and books are listed as the basis for the author’s opinions and recommendations. An index is provided.
