We all know that jogging and lifting weights are good for our health, but is any benefit derived from doing laundry? In a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, July 2006, researchers recruited 302 men and women between the ages of 70 and 82 to see if daily energy expenditure — what the study authors called free-living activity — was associated with a lower risk of dying. After six years, researchers found that death rates went down as daily energy expenditure went up. Qualifying activities included vacuuming, mopping, and nonsitting volunteer work.

Recent research confirms the long-term effects of obesity: Harvard School of Public Health researchers recruited 102,400 women between the ages of 24 and 44 and asked them to recall their weight at age 18. The women were then followed for 12 years. Those who reported having had a high body mass index (BMI, a ratio of weight to height) at age 18 were at a threefold increased risk of premature death, compared with those who reported a normal BMI at age 18, according to the resulting article, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, July 2006. A smaller, but significant increased risk was seen in women who had been only moderately overweight when younger.

The holidays are quickly approaching, and you may be looking at your calendar with a little anxiety — worrying about regaining pounds that you’ve worked so hard to lose. There’s no doubt: We’re all food challenged during the six weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s.

principles that work all 365 days “People often use the notion of the holidays being ‘special’ as a reason to abandon their regular eating habits and overindulge,” says Dr. Arthur Agatston, preventive cardiologist and author of The South BeachDiet. “But this is the most critical time of year to hang onto the sound principles of the South Beach Diet. They won’t let you down—during the holidays or any of the other days of the year.”

Don’t skip a meal in anticipation of an extra load of calories you might eat at a party. That’s a recipe for failure. The principles are simple yet powerful: Choose nutrient-dense, high-fiber carbohydrates (such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables), lean sources of protein (like skinless chicken and lean beef), lowfat dairy products, and healthful unsaturated fats (such as the omega-3 fats found in fish like salmon and tuna, as well as in fish oil supplements, and in canola and olive oils). Doing so will not only keep your weight down but also keep you healthy, helping you to reduce the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, and type 2 diabetes, among other serious diseases that are linked to weight gain.

consistency is key “Applying the principles of the South Beach Diet consistently is the key to maintaining your weight when the holidays hit,” says Dr. Agatston. “And that should be your goal. Go easy on yourself, and don’t try to lose weight.”

Dr. Agatston stresses that he doesn’t recommend starting Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet during the holidays. Wait until the new year, he says. Maintaining your weight is enough of a challenge. How can you do that? Eat regularly by sticking to meal schedules, and continue to make good food choices. This means starting the day with a nutritious breakfast that includes protein, like a cheeseand-veggie omelet, or a low-fat dairy choice, such as plain nonfat yogurt flavored with vanilla extract and sugar substitute. (Beginning in Phase 2, you may also enjoy whole grains such as some slow-cooked or steel-cut oatmeal.) And when you’re hungry again, select a nutritious snack, such as lean turkey slices, a small handful of nuts, or reduced-fat cheese sticks. (Phase 2 snacks include whole-grain crackers with spreadable cheese or whole-grain pita triangles with a bean dip.) Don’t let yourself get too hungry — that only invites gorging. And don’t skip a meal in preparation for a huge load of calories you anticipate eating at a party. That’s a recipe for failure.

Q A

Can I eat at a Mexican restaurant while following the South Beach Diet? — marle ne r., del rio, ca

Of course! The South Beach Diet is not just a diet but a lifestyle. In fact, one of the best things about the South Beach Diet is that it’s easy to eat out while following the principles of the program. When it comes to selecting foods at a Mexican restaurant, focus on lean grilled meat, skinless chicken, seafood, and vegetables — often the fillings for a fajita. Some restaurants will serve these fillings on top of salad greens, too. There are also many delicious side dishes you can enjoy, like pinto beans, black beans, guacamole, and salsa. These are fine for every Phase of the plan.

profiles, and blood pressure numbers, as well as the least amount of weight gain, compared with those who ate the lowest amount of fiber. You also need both soluble and insoluble fiber in your diet. Soluble fiber can improve your cholesterol by reducing its absorption in your bloodstream; it also normalizes blood sugar by delaying the absorption of glucose. Insoluble fiber adds bulk to your stool, which has a posi-tive effect on bowel function. If you’re following the South Beach Diet, it’s not necessary to count grams of fiber or worry about whether you’re meeting your fiber needs. The South Beach Diet has always been a fiber-rich plan, designed to encourage eating plenty of high-fiber foods, such as legumes, whole grains, and whole fruits and vegetables — all of which contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. Finally, if you’re increasing your fiber intake, do so gradually to minimize bloating.

Be careful when choosing starches at a Mexican restaurant. Many of them—like rice, tortillas, and corn-based taco shells — are refined. Choose whole-grain versions, if available, or skip them altogether. I also recommend avoiding sour cream and cheese, since both are high in saturated fat. At home, you can use reduced-fat versions. Finally, pass on the tortilla chips and the refried beans, which are often made with unhealthy fats.

Q

Is it true that adults should consume 25 to 30 grams of fiber every day? And is it possible to get that much while on the South Beach Diet? — li l a e ., portl and, o r

A

Yes, it’s true that you need 25 to 30 grams of fiber daily, though Americans tend to consume just 12 to 17 grams a day. A landmark study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, October 1999, followed nearly 3,000 adults for 10 years to research the importance of a high-fiber diet. The study showed that people with the highest fiber intake had better blood sugar control, cholesterol

Why am I struggling with weight now that I’ve hit menopause, and can the South Beach Diet help me with this? — e llyn s., weston , c t

Yes, the South Beach Diet can help offset the weight gain that stems from the hormonal changes during menopause, which slow down a woman’s ability to burn calories. A decline in the hormone estrogen leads to a decrease in bone and muscle mass. Because these tissues are more metabolically active than fat, women usually experience a metabolic slowdown at menopause, meaning they burn fewer calories overall. In my practice, I’ve seen many of my menopausal patients prevent this weight gain — and even lose weight — by adopting the South Beach Diet lifestyle, which emphasizes lean proteins, the right carbs, and the right fats. Exercise is also important and will help prevent weight gain by maintaining or increasing muscle mass. Plus, it can alleviate other troublesome symptoms associated with menopause, like hot flashes and sleep disturbances. A study published in the Journal of Advanced Nursing, April 2006, showed that women who exercised three hours a week for a year had significantly fewer and less severe menopausal symptoms than a control group.

Get-Ahead Strategies for Guilt-Free Holidays Dpoujovfe!gspn!qbhf!2 The Weight Control and Diabetes Research Center at Brown Medical School published a study in the February 2004 issue of the International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders that supports the South Beach Diet holiday approach. Researchers examined the question of whether long-term weight loss is enhanced more by maintaining the same eating strategy over the week and year, or by curtailing food more strictly on weekdays and during nonholiday periods in preparation for other times. After following more than 1,400 people over one year, the researchers found that individuals who were most consistent in their eating habits over time had the smallest weight gains. “One of the worst strategies you can use,” says Dr. Agatston, “is to ‘prepare’ yourself for an extravagant meal or party by eating less than you normally do — or nothing at all — just so you can overeat.” This kind of roller-coaster eating, Dr. Agatston explains, leads to precipitous swings in insulin and, therefore, blood sugar levels, which in turn create a vicious cycle of cravings and overindulgence. It’s a surefire way to lose control of your eating and gain those extra pounds that you’re trying so hard to avoid.

breaking the pattern Remember that while the holidays are a special time of year, the typical routines of our daily lives are unseated by holiday shopping, extra cleaning, decorating, cooking, and partygoing. This disruption of our daily routines, explains Dr. Agatston, typically extends to a breakdown in our healthy eating patterns. We then use the holidays as an excuse to throw caution to the wind. How many times have you said to yourself, “What the heck, I’ll have a second cookie. After all, it’s the holidays. They only come once a year”? Writing on the South Beach Diet Message Boards, Bluebird shares one of her favorite tips to beat this behavior: “Switch out of holiday mode as soon as a party’s over. Don’t turn Thanksgiving through New Year’s into one long binge.” One of the key strengths of the South Beach Diet is that it stabilizes blood sugar levels and thereby reduces the cravings that underlie much of overeating. “Many cravings are often caused by physiological changes in the body, not psychological stresses,” says Dr. Agatston. “They’re caused by the dramatic fluctuations in blood sugar brought about by eating highly processed carbohydrates, such as the sweets offered up during the holidays.” Refined carbohydrates are digested very quickly, causing blood sugar levels to rise quickly. The resulting hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, triggers a craving for more sugary carbohydrates. Hypoglycemia also causes the release of

certain hormones, like adrenaline, which simulate the symptoms of stress. Feeling shaky, jittery, and hungry, we reach for another piece of pie or a cookie not long after we finish our binge. The cycle of cravings is dangerous because it leads to weight gain and the accompanying risk of disease.

Prepare yourself psychologically by developing a strategy before the holiday season gets into full swing. For example, if you’re the cook and you love the tradition of serving up favorite family dishes, consider how slight alterations in the recipes — in both the food and the cooking techniques — might bring them more in line with the South Beach Diet. Replace white bread with 100 percent whole-wheat or whole-grain bread, fat-laden dairy products with their reduced-fat versions, and saturated fats with good fats, like canola or olive oil. Explore the recipes in Dr. Agatston’s new book, The South Beach Diet Parties & Holidays Cookbook, and transform your holiday menu into a substantially healthier one.

how to survive a party Don’t skip meals: Stick to your usual eating routine, which means a healthy breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack. Don’t go to the party hungry, or you’ll surely overeat. Schedule exercise time: Keep your metabolism revved to burn calories. Keep yourself hydrated: Drink plenty of water all day long. It’s especially important to be well hydrated if you plan on enjoying an alcoholic drink.

With The South Beach Diet Parties & Holidays Cookbook, you can enjoy delicious meals for every occasion while continuing to eat the healthy South Beach Diet way. With 150 recipes, you’ll never feel deprived. Color photographs throughout illustrate the delicious dishes and provide ideas for stylish table settings and centerpieces.

Make every indulgence count: If the first bite of a scrumptious-looking cookie tastes like cardboard, don’t eat the rest. Eat slowly and mindfully: To avoid consuming excessive calories, take smaller bites, chew your food well, and make a point of enjoying it. Leave the table: Find a place away from the table where you can visit with friends and family.
