The Truth About Pandemic Weight Gain

The Truth About Pandemic Weight Gain

I’ve been seeing a lot of reports in the media about how much weight everyone supposedly gained during the pandemic year. And some of the numbers are pretty alarming. One highly regarded source reported an average weight gain of 25 pounds. Another widely reported survey put that number even hi

How many steps should you do each day?

Is there a magic number of steps you should aim for a day? 10,000? 20,000?

Through a combination of pure self-experimentation and natural daily movement patterns, I’ve discovered that about 15,000 steps per day seems to be my sweet spot. Along the way, I’ve learned four valuable lessons. Check out today's episode in the comments to hear what walking has taught me about meditation, multitasking, and more.

For those of us who want soy- this is great evidence based information. Take care!

Soy is one of those foods that seems to have an equal number of equally ardent proponents and detractors. Proponents tout soy as helping to prevent osteoporosis, heart disease, and hot flashes. Detractors claim that soy can bring on early puberty, feminize men, damage your thyroid, and prevent nutrient absorption.

Today, we'll take a look at the claims on both sides of the soy debate, as well as questions about the healthiest types of soy and recommended intakes.

Keep reading in the comments to learn more about these legumes.

For those who avoid dairy products, there are a lot of milk substitutes to choose from. You can buy non-diary alternatives made from soy, rice, almond, oat, coconut, peas, or h**p. Is there any reason to choose one over the others? For that matter, are any of these more nutritious than cow’s milk? It really depends on what you’re looking for.

In the link in the comments, check out my findings from comparing a dozen different types of brands and non-dairy alternatives. Do you have a preference?

The Best Nutrition Ideas of 2017

Hello friends and Happy New Year!
I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts-The Nutrition Diva. She (By Monica Reinagel, MS, LD/N, CNS, Nutrition Diva December 26, 2017) listed "The Best Nutrition Ideas of 2017." I thought I would share them with you.
1. Best Behavior Change Strategy: Mindful(ish) Eating
If I had to choose just one thing that would make the biggest positive difference in people’s eating habits, it would be eating more mindfully. It’s something that we all talk about but few of us practice on a consistent basis. And yet mindful eating has the potential to improve not just our nutrition but also our enjoyment of food.

If you’ve resisted the idea of mindful eating for fear that it would require you to eat all your meals in a state of meditative silence and chew every bit 100 times, let me reassure you that eating mindfully does not have to be that extreme in order to be extremely useful.

2. Best Nutrient to Fight Aging: Protein
Which nutrient has the most potential to hold back the ravages of time? It’s not an antioxidant, hormone, growth factor, or phytonutrient. My vote for the number one anti-aging nutrient goes to protein.

The loss of strength, vigor, and vitality that so many people start to notice in their sixties is actually set into motion in your thirties and forties, which is when most people begin to gradually lose muscle mass and bone density. High-quality protein helps to prevent the loss of muscle and bone density as we age. (Yes, you read that correctly. Contrary to popular lore, protein actually protects against bone loss.)

Unfortunately, protein intake tends to go down as we age, just when we need it the most. I’m not saying you have to start eating a dozen eggs for breakfast or a pound of steak for dinner every day.

3. Best New Discovery: Brewed Cacao
A lot of new products cross my desk (and kitchen counter) every year, and most are variations on well-worn themes: protein bars, superfood powders, juice drinks, and probiotics. All have their pros and cons but few seem newsworthy enough to mention. But I did fall in love with one new (to me) product this year: brewed cacao.

It’s not that brewed cacao has miraculous benefits. It’s not going to melt off the belly fat, raise your IQ, make your hair thicker, or do your taxes for you. It’s just a really fun and healthy way to enjoy the flavor and benefits of chocolate—without any added sugar or calories.

4. Best Healthy Habit: Healthy Lunch Club
Eating healthier and spending less money are two of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions. Bringing your lunch to work instead of eating out can help you do both! But with all the other demands on you, this is one resolution that usually ends up on the scrap heap before the first week is out. That’s why I love this new trend that’s been catching on in workplaces around the country: Healthy lunch clubs. Coworkers take turns bringing in healthy lunches for each other. You get a healthy, home-cooked lunch every day but only need to plan and prepare lunch once every week or two.

5. Best Diet Study: It's Not About Carbs or Fat
Every year, I review a lot of nutrition research and there are always a few studies that pit one type of diet against another to see which one works best. Usually, it’s low carb diets vs. low fat diets. To be honest, I think most of these studies are a waste of energy because I don’t think there is one diet that’s best for everyone.

If you want to lose weight, don’t worry about carbs or fat. Just give up the junk food and eat your vegetables.
But back in January, I reviewed a study that put a brilliant twist on the usual low carb vs low fat debate. In this study, all of the participants ate the same foods but in different proportions. That may sound obvious, but studies are hardly ever done this way. Both groups were instructed to load up on vegetables and avoid processed foods and both the low-carb and the low-fat groups lost a similar amount of weight.

The take home from this study reinforces an idea you've heard me repeat many times over the years: If you want to lose weight, don’t worry about carbs or fat. Just give up the junk food and eat your vegetables.
