Eat the Right Fats. Studies suggest that replacing saturated fats (e.g., butter) with plant-based sources of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats may help lower blood cholesterol. Sources of polyunsaturated fats include corn and soybeans, and many nuts and seeds and their oils. Monounsaturated fat sources include canola, olive and peanut oils, and avocado. 2013

Healthy, Bright Smiles Using the Latest Technology Available! All-ceramic restorations: One Visit • No Impressions • No Temporaries • Metal Free • Highly Aesthetic • Long Lasting CEREC - a procedure with a long tradition No more conventional impressions, temporaries & long waiting periods.

The CEREC treatment procedure means: No conventional impressions The CEREC 3D measuring camera scans the prepared tooth in just a few seconds. This eliminates the need for unpleasant silicone impressions. No temporaries CEREC restorations are milled out of a solid ceramic block in just a few minutes. They are then ready to be placed immediately. This eliminates the need for temporary fillings and crowns. It also means that you need only one appointment, and you don’t have to wait for days on end until the ceramic filling is finished. No long waiting periods Because CEREC restorations can be placed immediately, you need only one appointment, and you benefit from tooth restorations which have demonstrated their durability time and time again.

Healthy Tips RELAX. SLEEP. Relaxing and sleeping are both good for your body and your mind. You need to be getting around 7 to 8 hours of sleep in every 24 hour period. Not only should you be getting enough sleep, you should also be relaxing during the day, being stressed can interfere with how your body processes carbohydrates making it more likely that you will gain weight. Take regular rest periods when you can unwind for even a few minutes during the day and de stress, maybe with a nice cup of green tea?

Healthy Tips

It can’t be said enough, protein is great for dieting, your body uses more energy digesting protein. Plain and simple, eating protein can help you to burn more calories. Try lean meat or fish with vegetables for a balanced meal, leave out the pasta and go for whole grains. Do not only eat protein, keep all your meals balanced and you will find you have more energy by the day.

Healthy Tips

Trying to lose weight? Try this! Keep a little journal for one week and write down everything you eat. If it goes in your mouth record it! You may be surprised by how much you actually consume and where you overindulge. You may want to bring your ‘food diary’ to a nutrition expert to see where you can make changes. Record your exercise too!
