Sitting Too Long is Bad for Your Health Whether you have a desk job or otherwise sedentary lifestyle, prolonged periods of sitting may be unavoidable for you. Chances are you are sitting as you read this article. New research published in the Archives of Internal Medicine and other journals shows that sitting for long periods of time can be detrimental to your health, contributing to a variety of complications, such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and chronic kidney disease. “The best defense — the only defense — is to move more,” says Dr. Keith Overland, president of the American Chiropractic Association. WALK The simple act of walking can help you get in shape and feel great. It’s easy, burns calories, reduces the risk of heart disease, tones muscles and increases cardiovascular endurance. Walking as little as 12 minutes a day can have a significant, positive effect. Take the stairs, park faraway on a warm day or take a short walk during your lunch break. To get the most from your walk, move your arms freely in coordination with the opposite leg, walk “with purpose” to maximize your cardiovascular workout, don’t stoop your head or look down as you walk and don’t carry weights, as they’re better used as a separate part of your PHOTO SOURCE: (c) Ivonne Wierink – Fotolia exercise regimen. ALLEVIATE PAIN Aches and pains prevent many people from even taking that first step toward better health. Chiropractic physicians — experts in treating muscles and joints — offer not only a drug-free approach to alleviating pain through spinal adjustments and manipulation, they also promote overall health and wellness through nutritional counseling, rehabilitation and exercise and lifestyle recommendations. Search for a chiropractor in your area by using “Find a Doc,” the American Chiropractic Association’s online member database, acatoday.org/FindaDoc. SIT CORRECTLY “When you do sit, make sure to do it correctly so you don’t ruin your posture or strain your muscles, leading to pain that could inhibit you from getting the activity you need,” suggests Dr. Overland. To prevent problems, keep your feet on the floor or a footrest and don't cross your legs. Your knees should be at or below the level of your hips. Adjust the backrest of your chair to support your lower and mid-back or use a back support, and avoid sitting in the same position for long periods of time. Include frequent micro-breaks into your sitting time, stretching your neck, arms, wrists, back and legs. Simple stretches include neck rotations, fist clenches, arm dangles, and shoulder shrugs. Most of all, don’t sit for too long. Stand up and stretch your legs with a short walk about every 20 to 30 minutes. Avoid working through lunch. MAINTAIN GOOD POSTURE Poor posture not only consumes more energy, but can also lead to excessive strain on your postural muscles and may even cause them to weaken when held in certain positions for long periods of time. The postural muscles are prone to injury and back pain, but maintaining good posture, sitting properly and moving regularly can help you stay painfree. You can learn more healthy tips at ChiroHealthy.com. While you may not be able to quit your desk job, you can prevail over inactivity and move yourself closer to better health. - Statepoint

Is it Important to Feed Kids Organic Food? The nutritional choices you make for your children are crucial, setting the stage for good health and good habits for years to come. Once they leave the house, you want to be able to trust that you’ve sent them on the right path and they continue to make healthy food choices. Until then, these tips and pieces of information can help you make the best choices for them and for yourself. If you’ve heard about the benefits of organic food, you may be wondering if it’s worth the extra expense or if it actually makes a big difference. Despite economic troubles, organic food continues to be in demand, so it must be helping people in some way.

PHOTO SOURCE: (c) Ivonne Wierink – Fotolia

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, which recently weighed in on the subject of organic food for the first time, what’s most important is that children eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains and low-fat or fat-free dairy products, whether those are conventionally or organically grown. “Organic foods do have lower levels of pesticides and drug-resistant bacteria,” says Dr. Thomas K. McInerny, president of the AAP. “That may be important for kids because young children are more vulnerable to chemicals, but we simply don’t have the scientific evidence to know if the difference will affect a person’s health over a lifetime,” he says. Both organic and conventionally grown foods have the same vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, proteins, lipids and other nutrients that are important for children’s health. “If you’re on a budget, don’t buy the most expensive organic option if it’s going to reduce your family’s overall intake of healthy foods, like fresh produce,” advises McInerny. “It’s better for kids to eat five servings of conventionally grown produce a day than for them to eat one serving of organic vegetables.” Families can also be selective in choosing particular organic foods to stretch their budget. The Environmental Working Group has created a Shopper’s Guide that rates the level of pesticides in produce. Their guide indicates that conventionally grown onions, sweet corn and pineapples have relatively low pesticide rates, making them safer to purchase. If you can budget a few extra dollars to spend on groceries, opt for organic apples and celery, which are among the most pesticide-laden crops. According to the AAP, organic milk is not healthier for kids than conventional milk, but parents should make sure all milk they purchase is pasteurized. The jury is still out on the long-term health benefits of organic produce, but in the meantime, keep your eyes and ears open for new information as it becomes available, so you can make the best possible choices in the future. You can find nutrition tips for kids on the AAP website for parents, healthychildren.org. No matter the size of your budget, you can do your kids a world of good by ensuring they get at least five servings of fruits and vegetables daily. - Statepoint

10 Tips for Clearing out Clutter

Dr. Bo’s Diet

800 Community Drive, Manhasset (516) 365-3908, dobosdiet.com Weight loss and weight maintenance are only successful if you get down to the root of the problem and create a lifelong plan that allows you to eat what you want and fully enjoy life. Dr. Bo’s Diet is a comprehensive, five-phase approach to weight loss and maintenance — designed specifically for each patient — and discovers where the weight struggle lies. Isaac Schulman, Director and former patient, said, “Most diets only treat the weight of a patient. Hunger is not always the issue; there are other factors involved, so these people only see results in the short-term. It is impractical and impossible to sustain these sort of diets over a long period of time.” Dr. Bo Rosenblat is an emergency room doctor who is board certified in Emergency Medicine. Many of his patients struggle with obesity, leading to larger complications, such as hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol. “The practice opened five years ago — after two years of research — and now when Dr. Bo sees patients that need to lose weight, he can provide the proper tools to help them,” Schulman said. The procedure includes a 90-minute process of getting to know each patient and building a profile. The patient receives a medical exam and questionnaire to discover the origin of the problem. “There are three main reasons why people struggle with weight,” explained Schulman. “It can be nutritional, physiological or psychological. Psychological is the most overwhelming factor, but each of the three requires unique treatment.”

The first four phases are completed in sixteen weeks and the fifth phase takes 12 months, in order to ensure that patients can follow the plan on their own. Phase one and two is a 2140 day rapid weight loss period. According to drbosdiet.com, this part caters to the human need for instant gratification, then trains them on how to keep the weight off. Schulman said, “This part is not ‘real life’, it is a diet sustainable for only a short time period.” Phase three resets the patient’s metabolism, which is a prerequisite to a goal of lifelong weight maintenance. This is where the patient learns how to create a valuable bridge between rapid weight loss and lifelong maintenance. “Real life” begins at phase four. “This is the educational component and nutritional phase, where patients understand how all the phases come together. The four parts of this phase are types of food, portion control, preparation of food and eating schedule. It varies for every patient, as each person has a unique metabolic rate and caloric budget,” said Schulman. Until phase five, patients meet with a staff of nutritional, medical and psychological experts, as well as a support staff, for a half hour every week. After four months, there are six meetings spread throughout the year. First, they meet after four weeks, then after six weeks, then eight, ten, twelve and finally, fourteen weeks. “Patients gradually stop seeing the staff because if they quit ‘cold turkey’ they will lose hyper focus and may return to the root of the problem,” said Schulman. Patients are able to eat “real food” that they find in supermarkets and restaurants and can cook in their kitchen. Schulman said, “Making a lifelong commitment to a diet is scary and unsustainable. Our finite phases make things more manageable and there is never any feeling of deprivation. There is no ‘cookie cutter’ approach to weight loss and that is why we deal with each patient’s needs individually and work with experts across all fields.” Dr. Bo’s Diet has treated over 10,000 patients and is available to men and women, with all different medical backgrounds and struggles, from ages 18-75, who want to lose 10 pounds or 310 pounds — for good. Locations are available in Hewlett and Great Neck, as well. -Kristin Cacchioli

If you’re like most Americans, you’ve lost something valuable because of clutter, according to a recent Harris Interactive survey. It happens to just about everyone, but there are ways to prevent the loss. The most common thing lost? Important documents and bills, which can add unnecessary hassle and stress to your life. Don’t ever worry about losing or misplacing important — and non-important — things again. So that you don’t have to deal with the panic and constant running around trying to look for something, here are 10 tips to help you get organized and stay that way: Tip 10: Start small. When starting to declutter, it is best not to overwhelm yourself with too many things at once. Pick one area or room and sort through your stuff slowly and carefully. Purge items that you no longer use and assign the keepers to a place where they belong. Tip 9: Keep things orderly. Create zones for certain activities or categories and store all related items in that zone. It will be easier to learn where everything is if there is some sort of order and category to remind you. Tip 8: Have a young family? Make it a game with your kids to get organized. Whoever can create the most organized space wins. Or create a treasure hunt and you may rediscover precious items once thought to be lost. Tip 7: Organization needs consistency. Talk to your significant other or roommate about maintaining a united front on keeping things organized. Unless everyone is on board, it won’t work. Tip 6: Enlist help for larger organization efforts. Invite friends over to help clear out clutter; pay them with pizza and cold drinks for their work. Going through old stuff with old friends can be fun and bring back wonderful memories. Tip 5: Donate duplicate or unwanted items to a charity that can use your extras to support those in need. By the time you clean out your entire house, there will be a ton of things you don’t want; put them to good use. Tip 4: Pick your battles. Start with what is manageable, like a closet, and work your way toward larger projects, such as the basement or garage. If you tackle something too large in the beginning, it may discourage you from organizing the rest of the rooms. Tip 3: Create routines. Make it a habit to tackle a new area of the home every month. When only a couple areas are left, you won’t be able to wait to organize them. Tip 2: Put it away now. Done using something? Instead of letting things pile up, put them away immediately. You can have plenty of places to put stuff when you get storage units, shelving and organization kits. Tip 1: Enjoy the spoils of victory. Cleaning and organizing is a daunting, but rewarding task. Enjoy your accomplishment by going out with friends to celebrate or taking a day to yourself to relax and read a good book. A neat and manageable garage, basement and life can start by straightening a single shelf. Don’t waste another minute running around for something that can have a perfect place in your home. -Napsnet

Butera’s 7903 Jericho Turnpike, Woodbury (516) 496-3633, buteras.com Butera’s Restaurant of Woodbury is that “go-to” local place that is sure to please the hungriest eater. It had been a while since we frequented it and I’m not sure why it took so long to revisit. As we made our return, I remembered that the problem on a Saturday night was the wait. They only take reservations for six or more, so patience is required. We arrived at what we thought would be on the early side, but we were wrong. You need to be there by 6:30 pm to be seated promptly. After about a half hour, we were politely shown to our table.

The restaurant is pretty inside and it seems to “bubble.” It was certainly not a quiet eatery; there seemed to be a lot of chatter filling the room. Butera’s creates a family friendly atmosphere, which can work for groups of any size. Highly experienced in the restaurant business, the first location opened over 20 years ago in Massapequa Park. Seated at a quiet table in the corner we were able to check out the crowd. It was definitely a “hip” place, so people-watching made my wife very happy. Our friendly waitress explained the specials and gave us great suggestions for our fare. We each had a glass of wine and placed our orders. My Prince Edward Island Mussels were outstanding. Prepared in fresh tomatoes and basil in a wine garlic sauce, I was one happy camper. Dipping the fresh bread into the sauce was a meal in itself. I indulged as my wife enjoyed her warm Goat Cheese Salad with satisfaction. I actually had to help her finish it, because the portion was so large — no complaints from me. Additional Antipasti selections include Shrimp Limoncello, Calamari Sicilian Style, Eggplant Rollatini, Stuffed Mushrooms and a Grilled Pizza of the Day. We had a little time between courses, which pleased me. I’m not a big fan of being served one course right after another. For those who enjoy healthy dining, Butera’s makes it easy. Salad entrées are plentiful, as are low-carb Grilled Chicken, Beef and Fish selections. However, that’s not the direction I wanted to take, so I ordered the Linguine Seafood. Not even a hungry eater, such as myself, could finish this very generous portion of shrimp, lobster, calamari, clams and mussels, in a delicious marinara sauce over linguini. The saving grace was that I knew what I would be eating for dinner the following day. My better half, of course, was more practical in her selection. While I ate my dinner, she delicately dined on small bites of low-carb Tilapia. Over a light sauce of spinach, broccoli, mushrooms and fresh tomatoes, somehow she seemed just as happy with her choice as I did with mine. Though Butera’s is an Italian Restaurant, they offer more than delicious pastas, such as fish choices (Salmon, Basa Filet and Tilapia), Skirt Steak and of course, Chicken and Veal. Focaccia Sandwiches, Grilled Burgers, Paninis and Grilled Pizzas are also available for lunch. Butera’s has a nice selection of desserts, but we were advised to select something homemade. The cheesecake was perfect; I can't wait to indulge in some others next time. And there will be a next time — in the not so distant future. Home/office delivery is available and private parties are welcome on and off premises. They are open for lunch Monday - Saturday and for dinner seven days a week. -Randy Gordon
