Diets - Fad, Gimmick or Real? 10 QUESTIONS TO ASK BEFORE STARTING A PROGRAM Many weight loss programs promise rapid weight loss. But most often they result in the weight being regained just as quickly. Use the checklist below to help you decide if a weight loss program is safe: 1- Does the program recommend that you talk with your doctor before starting? 2- Has a registered dietitian helped to design the program or is one made available to you? 3- Does the program use the Body Mass Index (BMI) and Waist Circumference to help you set a healthy and realistic weight loss goal? 4- Is the recommended weight loss 1-2 pounds per week? 5- Is the program based on Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide? 6- Does the program provide at least 1200 calories a day for women and 1500 calories a day for men? 7- Does the program allow for personal eating styles as well as individual nutrition needs?

8- Does the program encourage regular, enjoyable physical activity suited to your lifestyle and physical condition?

6- If the plan provides for fewer calories than this, it will be difficult to get your required nutrients.

9- Does the program rely on foods you normally eat and prepare at home instead of special products, foods, or supplements?

7- A good weight loss program will take into account your nutrient needs, lifestyle, and food preferences.

10- Is the program free of unrealistic claims or high-pressure sales tactics part of the program?

8- Physical activity is an important part of any weight loss program. You’ll burn calories, get fit, and feel great.

You should be able to answer YES to all ten questions, and here’s why: 1- Discussing any medical conditions or special needs with your doctor will help reduce risk to your health. 2- Registered dietitians are specially trained to design sound plans to help you lose weight and stay healthy. 3- Goal weights should be realistic. 4- A gradual weight loss of 1-2 pounds a week is safe and achievable. 5- The best way to get the nutrients you need is to eat a balanced variety of foods every day.

4 / The Pulse 2012 Published by The Abbotsford News

9- A permanent change in your eating pattern and activity level is what’s going to keep lost weight off, not a reliance on special foods or supplements. 10- If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. A balanced healthy diet, combined with regular physical activity, is a sure-fire prescription for achieving a healthy weight and feeling great. So if your diet program fits the bill, you’re well on your way! For more information visit www.dietitians.ca ■

SLEEP DEPRIVATION CAN HAVE COSTLY OUTCOMES

RESOURCES National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH): The mission of NIMH is to transform the understanding and treatment of mental illnesses through basic and clinical research, paving the way for prevention, recovery, and cure. >>nimh.nih.gov

20% of Canadian adults reported to have dozed off while driving. 100,000 crashes, 40,000 injuries and 1,500 fatalities happen each year in the US as a result of fatigued and drowsy drivers.

National Sleep Foundation: The NSF is dedicated to helping the public better understand the importance of sleep and recognizing the signs of sleep problems so that they can be properly diagnosed and treated. >>sleepfoundation.org ■

5 Steps to Better Sleep CONSEQUENCES OF BEING SLEEP DEPRIVED:

5 STEPS TO BETTER SLEEP:

• Memory loss, forgetfulness and impaired judgment.

1- Accept the fact that sleep is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle not to be taken for granted.

• Weight gain or obesity from increased appetite and cravings for unhealthy foods. • Weakened immune system becoming susceptible to the effects of viruses. • Major health issues such as high blood pressure, heart problems, and diabetes. • Depression, anxiety and a lowered sex drive.

2- Pay attention to your sleep patterns and make changes as needed. For starters, wake up and go to bed at the same time each day to help set the sleep cycle for successive days. 3- Gradually move to an earlier bed-time. Reduce your bedtime by 15 minutes each night until you are able to sleep for 7 to 8 hours.

4- Make your bedroom ‘sleep welcoming.’ You should associate your bedroom only with sleep and sex — don’t read, watch TV, have an argument or plan your next day’s agenda in your bedroom. 5- Reduce the use of stimulants. Minimize caffeine intake after lunch; no alcohol within four hours of going to bed; and cut out tobacco as nicotine withdrawal symptoms can wake you up.

Interested in becoming a workshop leader? Please inquire about our Abbotsford Leader Training starting October 23.

Students are more likely to succeed if they are healthy and active. Here are some tips for parents to encourage healthy eating and an active lifestyle for their children: • Encourage your children to eat breakfast every day, as it provides fuel for the brain to learn and helps them maintain a healthy weight. • Keep nutritious foods, like cut-up vegetables and fruit, cheese sticks, yogurt and butter-free popcorn on hand to make healthy snacking easy. • Encourage your children to choose milk or water at meals instead of sugary drinks or energy drinks. • Get children active through sports, or go for nightly family walks or bike rides. • Develop good hand-washing habits, as frequentt hand-washing reduces the spread of cold and flu viruses.

ARE YOU AT RISK? Hearing loss isn���t a harmless condition to be ignored. In fact, hearing loss often coexists with other serious health problems. And a growing body of research indicates that there may be a link. Studies show that people with heart disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and depression may all have an increased risk of hearing loss. When left untreated, hearing loss alone can lead to a wide range of physical and emotional conditions. Impaired memory and the impaired ability to learn new tasks, reduced alertness, increased risk to personal safety, irritability, negativism, anger, fatigue, tension and stress are among its more common side effects. But when untreated hearing loss coexists with a chronic illness, the likelihood is all the greater that the individual will experience exacerbated levels of stress and diminished quality of life. Here’s the good news: Research also indicates that professionally fitted hearing aids can help improve quality of life for people with chronic diseases when hearing loss does coexist. “In the vast majority of cases, hearing loss can be addressed with hearing aids to help people hear better and improve their quality of life,” says Dr. Sergei Kochkin, executive director of the Better Hearing Institute (BHI).  “I strongly urge anyone with heart disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, Alzheimer’s, and/or depression to talk with their doctor and make hearing screenings a routine part of their medical care.” BHI encourages people to take a free, quick, and confidential online hearing test at  www.hearingcheck.org to determine if they need a comprehensive hearing check by a hearing professional. In the event that further testing is needed, contact Robertson Hearing Center. Robertson Hearing has been helping the community of Abbotsford with their hearing health needs for 23 years. This local business offers a full range of audiometric services, utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and procedures. While the hearing industry has become saturated with retail sales tactics, Robertson Hearing is committed to a professional service with your hearing health needs as their primary concern. “Any office can sell you a hearing aid, but selecting instruments that best suit your needs and the customer service afterwards is most important” says owner Larry Nickel. Larry invites you to make an appointment for a comprehensive hearing assessment and consultation.

AGE 6 – AGE 12: Think about fissure sealants on your child’s teeth. Even if your child brushes and flosses carefully, it is sometimes impossible to clean the tiny crevices on certain teeth. Sealants “seal out” food and plaque and reduce the risk of decay. Sports and teeth - when your child is actively involved in high impact sports like hockey and basketball, it is important to think about mouth protection. A mouth guard can absorb forces on impact which will help prevent injury. Accidents happen - if your child is involved in an accident and you think their permanent tooth is injured, contact your dentist immediately. Depending on the type of injury, the survival of an injured tooth can be extremely time sensitive.

“HEAR ONE SIDE AND YOU WILL BE IN THE DARK. HEAR BOTH AND ALL WILL BE CLEAR.” - LORD CHESTERFIELD

HEARING:

RESOURCES

The most common causes of hearing loss are age and exposure to noise over a long period of time. People who have hearing loss are sometimes not aware of it, especially when the loss has developed gradually.

BC Family Hearing Resource Society: The BC Family Hearing Resource Society is the largest agency in the province serving the families of children from birth to age five who are deaf or hard of hearing and/or who have speech and language learning challenges. >>bcfamilyhearing.com

Hearing Self-Test Hearing loss, also known as hearing impairment, is a sudden or gradual decrease in the ability to hear. Although hearing loss is especially common in older adults, it affects people of all ages, can range from mild to severe, and can be reversible, temporary, or permanent. Answer the following questions to check for hearing loss and determine whether you need to have your hearing checked.  YES  NO Do you have a problem hearing over the telephone?  YES  NO Do you have trouble following the conversation when two or more people are talking at the same time?  YES  NO Do people complain that you turn the TV or radio volume up too high?  YES  NO Do you have to strain to understand conversation?  YES  NO Do you have trouble hearing in a noisy background?  YES  NO Do you find yourself asking people to repeat themselves?  YES  NO Do many people you talk to seem to mumble or not speak clearly?  YES  NO Do you misunderstand what others are saying and respond in a way that may embarrass you?  YES  NO Do you have trouble understanding women and children?  YES  NO Do people get annoyed because you misunderstand what they say?

Canadian Deafblind Association: Is committed to assisting all individuals in BC who are deafblind to achieve, with intervention, the best quality of life >>cdbrabc.ca ■

If you have 0 to 2 “Yes” answers, your hearing probably is good. Take the test again in a few months, especially if you are routinely exposed to loud noises. If you have 3 or more “Yes” answers, you may have some hearing loss and may want to see a health professional for a hearing evaluation. [Adapted from the U.S. National Institute on Deafness and Other Communicative Disorders]

Hearing loss is sometimes reversible. If it is not, hearing aids and other devices can help the person adapt to reduced hearing and help make communication, social interaction, and work and leisure activities easier and more enjoyable.

Choose nutrients vs. calories: Sodas, vitamin drinks and juice provide excess sugar and calories and leave you hungry. Instead choose fresh fruit to get your antioxidant boost (and fibers) and hydrate with water (it’s free). Cut back on convenience foods: These foods can save you time in the long run but often come with a larger price tag and extra fat, calories, sugar and sodium that you don’t need. Instead buy food in its whole form and do the prep

t

and cooking yourself. Check out www.heartandstroke.com for easy to make recipes. Buy big/bulk: Larger packages and bulk foods can get you more food for dollar. Look for the largest size that can be finished before spoiling. Buy bulk grains and beans and store in your own containers at home. Don’t forget to look at the unit price. Make the freezer your friend: When buying large amounts of food or cooking large batches, freeze the extras. For example block cheese, fresh fruit, casseroles and breads last for months when frozen. Go meatless: Legumes, lentils, beans and tofu provide a lower price alternative protein choice which is high fiber. Check out www.pulsecanada.com for tips and recipes.

Get your copy of the guide at: >>hc-sc.gc.ca Learn about food group bargains: Fruits and vegetables: root veggies such as carrots and turnips, frozen/canned vegetables and raisins, just past their peak produce Grains: bulk whole grains such as oats, barley and rice, day old bread/buns Dairy and alternatives: skim milk powder, plain yogurt with your own fresh/frozen fruit Meat and alternatives: eggs, legumes, canned fish, peanut butter, peanuts Eating healthy doesn’t have to cost a lot, you just have to shop and cook a bit differently.
