“Go Packers!”, But don’t pack on Excess Weight

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

Super Bowl 2011 Official Logo “Go Packers!”, But don’t pack on Excess WeightWell, the big day is tomorrow.  The Green Bay Packers face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.  I grew up in Chicago watching the Bears, but my allegiances for the game tomorrow were established the day I married my wife.  She grew up in Green Bay, so unless I want to sleep on the couch I will have to root on the Packers.  That’s ok…I have grown to love the Packers just like her.  

I will have to be careful about what I eat tomorrow, though, based upon a recent article that discussed post-Super Bowl related deaths.  The article did not suggest I would die from being hit by an errant linebacker while standing on the sidelines (fat chance of that happening since I am not going to spend $5000.00 a ticket to watch a football game).  Instead the article (Super Bowl Losses can Increase Cardiac Death, January 31, 2011, Medicine and Health/Health) asserted that sports fans who became excessively involved in rooting for their favorite team only to have their efforts go in vain are susceptible to high degrees of emotional distress.  This emotional distress seemed to lead to increased instances of cardiac deaths.  In men there was a 15 percent increase in all circulatory deaths associated with a Super Bowl loss.  Women apparently take their football even more seriously than men as they saw a 27 percent increase in cardiac deaths.

The press release recommended that everyone pre-plan their game day festivities to include only non-fat or low fat foods.  In addition, a pre-game work-out could help to burn off calories to make room for the food you will eat throughout the course of the day.

Don’t be Afraid of that 4th of July Barbecue

Saturday, July 3rd, 2010

American Flag Wall Art Dont be Afraid of that 4th of July BarbecueHow do I stick with my nutritional cleansing program over 4th of July weekend?  This is easier than you think. There is no reason you have to live in a bubble while using Isagenix. Enjoy the foods in moderation you would normally eat.

Here are some helpful eating tips:

  • Use lean protein on the grill and put your meat on a multi-grain bun or skip the bun altogether.  If you must sample the barbecue ribs limit them to 1 or 2.
  • Avoid mayonnaise based salads.  Instead eat a tossed salad with low calorie dressing.  If you can’t resist the pasta salad use whole grain pasta with an olive oil and vinegar dressing.tossed salad2 Dont be Afraid of that 4th of July Barbecue
  • Try filling up on raw vegetables & fruit.  Watermelon is a good choice this time of year.  It is low in calories and contains 90% water.
  • Baked beans are high in fiber but they are also contain a lot of sugar.  Limit your serving to 1 – 2 tbsp.
  • Eat baked chips instead of regular.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • If you can’t live without your alcoholic beverage, choose low-calorie varieties and drink in moderation.
  • Exercise the mourning before to help speed up your metabolism.

Most of all enjoy!  One off day is not going to limit your success.  Besides, on Cleanse for Life 1024x814 Dont be Afraid of that 4th of July BarbecueMonday you can get back on track by doing a cleanse day. I like to think of my cleanse as my magic eraser. 

Have a safe and healthy holiday weekend!
