Do you ever wonder if your child is getting adequate nutrition and/or exercise on a daily basis? Looking back on your childhood, do you wish you had made healthier choices (food wise) or played more sports, been involved in more clubs that include physical fitness? Well, there is a great answer to these questions! This summer, I started working with an amazing company, called Lean Teen Inc., which provides teens with tools, understanding, and great resources necessary to make sound fitness and nutritional choices.
Exercise and proper nutrition have vast benefits for teenagers in both their physical and mental health. They play a key role in proper development, growth and strength of bones. Bones are strengthened and developed until the age of approximately 23-25 years, after that it is about maintaining them and preventing osteoporosis. Learning the appropriate tools at a young age empowers teens to lead a healthy, happy and active lifestyle to maintain in the long run.Read More...
The weather is heating up! It’s bikini time…aka time to get in shape! There is a lot of pressure to be “thin,” from the media, especially living in Los Angeles and Hollywood – “the movie capital of the world!” However, many people that are “rail thin,” might also be nutrient deficient or lack muscle mass.
Healthy strong muscles give shape to your body (which is a good thing)! People who maintain muscle mass while losing weight look and feel better. Muscle tissue allows for proper movement and contraction of muscles, and stabilizes the body in motion. When muscle mass declines, strength, stability and mobility suffer. The scale is the most commonly used device to measure weight, however it doesn’t take into account muscle mass or bone density, therefore it is not the best indicator of overall health.
You don’t need an expensive gym to get into shape. I train many of my clients using resistance bands, a core medicine ball or stability ball, free weights, jump rope and a foam roller! Exercises that use your own body weight can also be a challenge and enhance your balance. Small muscle groups are important to help stabilize your large muscle groups.
Here are a few pieces of “workout equipment” that I recommend you buy for an “at home or outdoor” workout:Read More...
There is a chance you may or may not have heard of it. Currently it is being sold person to person by people who are actually taking the product themselves and believe in it, because they are getting great results. It is not sold at GNC or other supplement stores because the staff was not educated on the science and health benefits behind it (very unique supplement). With my background in biochemistry (Bachelor of Science degree) and as a Registered Dietitian, I feel it’s my duty to inform everyone of this revolutionary product! I have been taking the product for a month now and already feel the results (more energized, the ability to have more intense workouts, no sugar cravings, less stress from the “little things” that sometimes make you frustrated, etc.)
Please watch this short video featured on ABC that will give you some background information and the science behind the product. CLICK HERE
Dr. Joe McCord is the world-renowned scientist and PhD behind this discovery, a pioneer in free radical biology. After using Protandim for only 2 weeks, scientists “could not distinguish the cells (reduces cell aging) between an 80 year old and a 20 year old.” They tested this using blood samples and testing the T bars. Oxidative stress increases with age, however with Protandim it maintains stable, even decreases, despite age.
One of the great things about Protandim is that it is all-natural and has 4 US patents on the specific ratio of these 5 herbs:Read More...
“Intuitive” is defined as perceiving by intuition, as a person or the mind. It is similar to something that is natural, innate.
There are so many emotions involved in eating. Stress, lack of sleep, anger, frustration and anxiety are a few emotions that often increase appetite. Even joy and happiness can drive a person to eat more or lead to overindulging. When you’re relaxed, you let you guard down, and for some people, that can open the flood gates to larger portions, richer foods and an underestimation of total calories consumed.
Think about it, most social occasions are focused around food—birthday parties, family events, holiday celebrations, engagement parties, weddings, bridal or baby showers, retirement parties… the list goes on and on. It is important to have a strong (and healthy) relationship between your mind and body in order to make the “right choices”, hence the name of my private practice, Nutrition For Body and Mind. I have created this to promote a healthy balance between nutrition and exercise, which come hand in hand.Read More...
Cancer is a scary disease, even with many years of research, there is still no cure. We spend our lives trying to eat healthy foods that are high in antioxidants to reduce the cancer causing free radicals in our systems. Yet, it is still a common disease, and one that should not be taken lightly if diagnosed. It’s important to make lifestyle behavior modifications and follow a healthy diet to improve your symptoms and fight the disease.
