Spring Clean Your Eating Habits

10

T H E F I T N E S S C E N T R E & D AY S PA e N E W S L E T T E R

|

APRIL 2014

............................................. Spring has arrived, and with longer days and warmer weather comes a new crop of fresh produce. It's the perfect season to “spring clean” your nutritional habits. In-season produce reaps the most nutritional value. For example, asparagus are at their peak from March through June but can be purchased yearround. Low in fat and high in fiber, these tender stalks are a good source of iron, B vitamins, and vitamin C. Along with seasonal produce selections, you can also try these six tips to sping into healthy eating habits:


Nutrition 1 Avoid Drinking Your Calories

4 Get Serious About Sleep

Research has shown that liquid calories don’t satisfy us the same way that solid food does. From frozen coffee drinks to sodas to juices, these drinks provide calories but little to no beneficial nutrients. Other empty-calorie liquid losers are alcoholic beverages. Alcohol provides seven calories per gram, more than carbohydrates and protein, which each provide four calories per gram (fat provides the most at nine calories per gram). Those happy-hour cocktails and weekend beers at your friends’ barbeques can add just enough extra calories to keep you from dropping those last few pounds.

If you often burn the midnight oil, you need to change your habits. Finish your school and work projects earlier, and say “good night” to your favorite late television show. People who don’t sleep enough are at a higher risk of accumulating body fat. Furthermore, it’s likely that your lack of sleep won’t help you fight the craving for a latenight snack.

.........................................

Many of us were taught from a young age to “clean our plates.” However, abiding by this old rule is counter-intuitive because it tells us not to listen to our bodies. We eat every bite on our plates and we do so very rapidly.Try to leave just a few bites of food on your plate at each meal, and you’ll be cutting calories left and right. You may not think 4-5 bites can really make a difference, but if done often enough, these dropped calories will really add up, equaling weight-loss success.

3 Cut the Cake and Other Sweets

.........................................

Tracking calories can feel like a burden, but if you want to see excellent progress, it’s a must. It’s much easier than it was in the past, however. Today, you can simply install an app on your phone, tablet, or computer and enter what you eat. By keeping tabs on your calories and macronutrients, you’ll be able to tell when you need to make adjustments to your diet and training. If you’re not sure what you put into your body, there’s no way of knowing what your diet does or does not lack.

6 Remove All Processed Foods

.........................................

Ditch all the packaged snack foods, frozen dinner meals, and pints of ice cream sitting in your freezer. Even that container of fruit-flavored yogurt needs to go. As painful as this process may be, it will make the world of difference in your diet and, by extension, your appearance. Limit your diet to foods that come from nature. The right nutrition for your beach-ready body does not include bags of chips or cans of soda.

|

Many of us like a little something sweet after a meal, but consider cutting out extra sweets and desserts for the next few months. If you’re craving something sweet, reach for some fresh fruit, a dessert-flavored yogurt with 100 calories or less or a sugar-free pudding cup. For a nearly calorie-free treat, grab some sugar-free jello or pop in a piece of sugar-free gum to satisfy that sweet tooth.

APRIL 2014

The Long Road to Recovery and Resoration Working as an attorney and law professor for many years, Ann Cavazos was used to an independent, fast-paced life. However, a serious car accident forced her to slow down. Suddenly, Ann was living “in constant pain” with very little mobility. She couldn’t twist her waist, move her neck or lift her legs...a big change for a busy career woman. On her road to recovery and to regain the life she once knew, Celebration Fitness Centre became a refuge of healing and restoration— for her body, mind and spirit.

I do this, not to have a nice body; I do this because I want to maximize everything God has given me to do by taking care of my body."


MemberWelcome Spotlight Ann joined the Fitness Centre is 2008 while receiving physical therapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic treatments. She initially tried our BODYJAMTM group fitness class. Because of her limited mobility, she felt out of place. However, the group fitness instructors made her feel welcome and offered constant encouragement. “I didn’t feel left out,” she said. “Most times you go to places [other gyms] and nobody takes the time out to help. But the group fitness instructors taught me how to modify. I couldn’t do a lot of the movements, but the objective was to keep moving.”

In addition to her tenacity, she attributes her success to the positive environment she encounters at Celebration Fitness Centre. “I love the energy and the inspiration they provide in the classes,” she said. “The staff is friendly, and the personal trainers still take the time to teach me even though I’m not their client.”

.........................................

"It’s not too late to change. It’s not too late to start. And if you mess up, it’s okay.”

|

Ann’s resolve to improve her eating habits had a great-

As she continues her journey, her advice to others is simple:“It’s not too late to change. It’s not too late to star t. And if you mess up, it’s okay.”

APRIL 2014

“Exercise is not enough. Eating good is not enough. You have to combine them,” she said. “Exercise and eating right is like a marriage: It’s a commitment to do what is right for you, and you’ve got to work at it.”

Moving forward, Ann said that she is committed to maintaining her healthy lifestyle by eating right and continuing to work out at Celebration Fitness Centre.

|

With her body beginning to heal, Ann was able to return to work. But she knew that full recovery would require her to change her perspective about how to live a healthy and fit life. She not only needed to continue to exercise, but she also needed to maintain a healthy diet.

“I’m living my book,” said Ann, addressing the spiritual element of living healthy. “I believe in making a difference by doing, not becoming. I do this, not to have a nice body; but I do this because I want to maximize everything God has given me to do by taking care of my body.”

T H E F I T N E S S C E N T R E & D AY S PA e N E W S L E T T E R

And she did. Ann continued going to the classes, even if all she could do that day was walk back and forth. She also tried other group fitness classes like BODYFLOWTM and SHA’BAMTM. Her persistence paid off. After three years, she was finally able to complete a group fitness class – a major milestone for Ann.

er effect than what she had anticipated. Her new organic and gluten-free diet, along with routine exercise at Celebration Fitness Centre, allowed her to lose 20 pounds in three months. In addition, inquiries from family and friends about how she was losing the weight, prompted Ann and her husband John to write a book on healthy eating, The Daniel Fast Made Delicious.

............................... Genomic testing is the study of the entire DNA sequence of an organism (the genome) and how the genome functions, including the regulation of gene expression in health and disease. The study of genetics and genomics will provide deeper understanding of living organisms and will allow the discovery of better diagnostics and treatments for certain disease conditions. Through the examination of genetic markers, which are expressed in various organs such as the brain, stomach, gut, muscle, pancreas, as well as directly in fat tissue, we are able to gain an insight into how a person’s body processes sugars, fats, and nutrients and vitamins.

What kind of benefits are there to getting this type of testing done? Patients will benefit by understanding their genetic propensity to specific diets, eating behaviors, nutritional needs, exercise activity and health conditions. Understanding this is important to true, long-term success in weight management, Disease prevention, maximizing energy and Improvement to overall health. Clinical studies have shown that individuals who follow a genetically appropriate diet lose significantly more weight and are able to maintain weight loss more easily than those on a diet not based on their genetics.

What is the process? • Physician Authorization: A physician will be provided online to review your information and authorize testing. • Collect Sample: Physician or staff provides a simple, non-invasive saliva collection kit which is then sent to the lab using a prepaid FedEx label. • Physician Review: After sample is processed, a physician will review and release the results. • Results generally take 2-3 weeks and are sent to the ordering physician.

What kind of information can a patient expect to glean from this testing? Patients will learn how their genes influence their body’s response to specific diets, eating behaviors, nutritional needs, exercise activity and health conditions, including: • Identify your risk for certain heart related health conditions • Detect the precursors to coronary artery disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes • Find out your optimal medication and dosage • Mitigate and/or prevent certain health risks • Optimize your metabolism • Tailor your diet and nutrition needs based on your genetics

Your skin works hard to protect itself from the sun, heat, and even the cold weather. Over time the environment’s harmful effects will begin to accelerate the aging process. If you could remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells, you could reveal a younger looking you. A microdermabrasion facial is a 25- to 50-minute treatment with all the same pampering services of our signature facial—with the benefits of microdermabrasion added in.The Microdermabrasion treatment system is a mechanical medium that precisely exfoliates the surface of the skin, reducing fine lines, sun damage, and acne scaring. This unique facial feels like a delicate exfoliating scrub is being brushed over the surface of the skin. You will notice a difference after the first treatment, but over time this repeated process stimulates the increased production of collagen and elastin. The ideal regimen is to do a series of six treatments every 10 to 12 days, take a break for a month, then be put on a monthly maintenance program. The great thing about Microdermabrasion is there is no downtime and it is safe for all skin types. You will need to keep the skin hydrated and, of course, applying sun protection to your skin daily is essential.

The ear auricle is thought to be a micro-system reflecting the entire body.

Auricle

Ear Acupuncture is a type of acupuncture that involves inserting needles into specific points on the ear to treat other areas of the body. Because the ear auricle is thought to be a micro-system reflecting the entire body, ear acupuncture, also know as auricle therapy, is often used to supplement regular acupuncture methods when treating various conditions.

Developed by Dr. Paul Nogier, French neurologist, ear acupuncture is used to diagnose and treat conditions such as pain, stress, sleep and food addiction. Auricular therapy is especially effective for treating addictions and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A special needle protocol called 5 NP (five point ear acupuncture protocol) is used to help with detoxification of substance abuse and gives support with the emotional, physical, and psychological aspects of addictions and severe stress. Ear needles can be quickly and easily applied in emergency situations

and are used widely to treat victims of natural disasters, etc. To treat a condition, a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) practitioner will assess the skin surface of the ear by identifying areas of redness, discoloration and swelling. A point locator device is used to assess the frequency of the skin, identifying points to be treated indicated by a high pitch alarming sound. Once points are selected, acupuncture needles, electric stimulation, ear seeds or pellets are applied to the point. Ear needles are retained for 30 to 45 minutes and ear seeds are retained for 5 days. Auricular therapy can be effective alone or received between acupuncture sessions. A course of treatment consists of six sessions, once a week until symptoms improve. Treatment duration is 20 to 30 minutes in length.
