VOLUME ONE’S GUIDE

TO SEEING YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION THROUGH

Even if you haven’t announced it publicly, you know you made an informal New Year’s resolution to yourself. And, odds are, it had to do with being healthier. Well if you’re like us (except for the fact that every year we tell everyone about our resolutions), after a few months, weeks, or even days you’ve already given up. Well enough is enough. This year is different because you’ve got this guide to help you see it through. We’ve done all the work you could possibly need in terms of nutritional tips, lifestyle changes, and fitness amenities. So put down the burger and roll off the couch, because there are no more excuses. Let’s do this thing!

For The Record

IF YOU’RE LOOKING TO GO HEALTHIER, FOOD JOURNALING HOLDS YOU TO IT BY CHERI DOSTAL

I don’t believe in diets. What we eat in the course of a day matters. And, besides, the root word of “diet” is Greek for “manner of living.” An ideal diet isn’t a short-term program that we hate and can’t wait to break all of its rules. Real health and fitness doesn’t come in quick-fix neat packages with huge promises attached (sorry). Health comes from conscious living, from eating well and balanced (I consciously choose to eat chocolate to balance out all greens, eggs, and yams). Quite simply, how we eat reflects how we live. Research and my own professional experience prove that people who pay attention to what and how they eat get better health results than those who don’t. Food journaling is one of the simplest ways to pay attention, and it’s also proven effective by research. The National Weight Control Registry publishes research about people who have been successful losing and maintaining their new weight. They found that, of all participants in their study, 98 percent of them modified their food intake and 94 percent increased physical activity. How do you know what to change in your diet unless you clearly see what

you’ve been up to? You just might crack the code on how you eat, and how to eat with food journaling. No more secrets and sneaky eating allowed – be honest and put it all on the page. If you prefer a digital app for that, check out online solutions for tracking your food choices. Every body is different, but we are all human. We all need enough calories but not too many, loads of different nutrients, clean water to drink, and an awareness of why we eat the way we do. I suggest you find a notebook you can designate as your food journal. Each day, record what you eat and an approximate amount or serving size, as well as the time of day that you consumed those calories. No matter how you like to eat (see our accompanying article about raw, vegetarian, and vegan lifestyles) you can learn about yourself and your behavior patterns with a good written record. Once you’ve written in your journal for a week (including work days and weekend days), pat yourself on the back and prepare to put that information to work. Here are top suggestions for changing sneaky patterns that make a big impact.

PLANTS: Notice the presence (or absence) of plants in your diet. When you look at your food journal make a note of every plant you eat whether it’s squash, bananas, green beans, green peppers, or navel oranges you’re noshing. Plants have nutrients, fiber to keep you full, and relatively few calories. The more plants the better; some professionals recommend consuming 30-60 percent of your calories from vegetables alone. PARCHED? Drinking your calories can sabotage results. It could be cocktails, daily cappuccinos with whip, soda, or juice. Choose water or hot tea more often and save yourself the extra couple hundred calories.

PORTIONS: Eat enough, but not until you’re stuffed. Watching portion sizes is a great way to reduce overall eating to a healthy level while enjoying some of your favorites some of the time. Pay attention to whether you actually feel hungry and how you feel after you eat. PROTEIN: Eating eggs, beans, rice, legumes, fish, nuts and other protein sources help keep you full and satisfied. They also give your body the amino acids and nutrients necessary for building muscle, which in turn boosts metabolism. It’s a win-win, so dig in to protein throughout the day. KEEP IT POSITIVE! If you have a great day, give yourself a gold star and call a friend. If you have a bad day, figure out why and still call a friend to help you problem solve and plan ahead. One day won’t undo weeks of hard work. Your journal is a tool to increase awareness and hold you accountable for reaching your goals, so use it frequently and wisely. It’s time to get serious about all our solid new-year intentions. Know that the road ahead is paved with more energy, greater health, and intelligent food choices

to fuel your workouts and your workday. Enjoy new awareness and wisdom from food journaling, and eat well.

“Lifestyle” Diets

WHAT SOME PEOPLE DO TO CHANGE THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD BY KRISTIN FROSCH

If you have ever been on a diet, you know that the effects simply don’t last once you resume your normal eating habits. In order to receive lasting benefits, you really need to change your entire lifestyle and relationship with food. So, to help you out, we have compiled a list of these different “lifestyle diets” to help you think about the kinds of extremes some people take.

VEGETARIANISM While you may think a vegetarian diet is self-explanatory, there are many varieties to choose from, each with their own set of rules.

TOTAL VEGETARIANS: The diet consists entirely of food from plant sources. LACTO-VEGETARIANS: While this diet is still based in the consumption of plant products, dairy products are also allowed. LACTO-OVO VEGETARIANS: This type of vegetarian diet allows both dairy and egg products in addition to the primary plant food.

POLLO-VEGETARIANS: With this type of diet, poultry products are allowed. Only beef products are eliminated. PESCO-VEGETARIANS: The only type of meat allowed here is seafood. SEMI-VEGETARIAN/FLEXITARIAN: While this diet consists of mostly plant sources, meat, eggs, and dairy products are allowed on occasion.

VEGANISM Veganism is by far the strictest of the lifestyle diets. A vegan diet consists entirely of food from plant sources. Animal products, including those from dairy, eggs, or honey are not allowed. Vegetarian and Vegan diets have proven to provide many positive health benefits such as decreased risk of heart disease, obesity, and diabetes. However, vegetarians and vegans need to follow a strict dietary code to ensure adequate nutrition. Neglecting to obtain certain nutrients from plant sources can lead to long-term health problems. The benefits can far outweigh the costs if, of course, you take the diet seriously. An Eau Claire native and vegetarian, who wishes to remain anonymous, has experienced positive health outcomes

from the dietary shift, as a diabetic. “Since I decided to quit eating meat and adopt a plant-based diet, I have had noticeably better control over my bloodsugar levels. Switching to vegetarianism is probably the best thing I’ve ever done.” Eau Clairian Susan Feather also sees vegetarianism in a positive light. “With all the health benefits, switching to a vegetarian diet just made sense,” said Feather. “I’m very happy with my decision.” Vegetarian and vegan diets are becoming increasingly more prevalent. More restaurants are beginning to offer vegetarian friendly dishes, and more people are beginning to accept the decision to switch.

RAW FOODS RAW DEAL

The raw foods diet is becoming increasingly more common among lifestyle diets. All meals consist of safe, uncooked food such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, and grains. The diet itself is fairly self-explanatory and has many health benefits. “In short, the idea behind vegan raw foods is the food is not heated above

105 degrees, leaving the enzymes alive, which results in your body being able to absorb all the nutrients,” said Ashley Score of Raw Deal, a raw foods restaurant in Menomonie. “The more vegan raw foods in your diet, the better, but you certainly do not have to be exclusively raw to benefit your health and energy. After all, you are what you eat!”

Whether you are thinking of changing your diet for health or ethical reasons, or you simply want to try something new for 2011, a lifestyle change is a full commitment. Do your research first! VolumeOne.org 32 Jan. 20, 2011

Pinkies Up

THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF DRINKING MATÉ TEA, AS OPPOSED TO SODA BY CHERI DOSTAL

Raise your hand if you drink soda. OK, put your hands down and consider an alternative – an alternative that may inspire you to raise your pinky in fine fashion – and that can give you the caffeine you may desire along with loads of other health benefits. Think tea. It’s the new year, and most people have started thinking about their health (and hopefully haven’t stopped quite yet). One of the most drastic changes you can make for you health is to stop drinking pop. Each can of soda (classic Coke, as an example here) can have about 39 grams of sugar or more. Drink two cans per day six days per week and that’s enough sugar calories to make you gain 27.6 pounds over the course of the year. Whoa. Stop the pop and switch to tea. Here’s why – in more scientific and specific terms. Maté tea may be a well-kept secret around the Midwest, but its popularity is growing. This sustainable, shade-grown herb from the Amazon is known for its stimulating, energizing benefits. With more caffeine than coffee, some might suspect it would have them dancing a jig half-naked around the office in no time. Although we can’t promise you won’t do a little ditty, this tea usually doesn’t incite the same jitters and crashes associated with caffeine (and certainly not the same rock bottom feeling from 40 grams of sugar). Maté tea contains 11 polyphenols (powerful antioxidants) in amounts nine times greater than green tea, and double what the acai fruit can claim. Maté tea also gives you vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, Niacin (B3), B5, and minerals like calcium, manganese, iron, selenium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorous. During cold and flu season, be glad that this grassy tea also has saponines which help stimulate your immune system – all without the suppressing symptoms of a sugar high. So the next time you think of grab-

bing a lime green, corn-syrupy beverage, reach for this natural energizing beverage. It may not be magic, but it may just help you improve your health.

Healthy To a Tea

THE BENEFITS OF DIFFERENT TEA FAMILIES BLACK TEA: (100% oxidation/60-90mg caffeine per cup) This classic tea accounts for the majority of western tea sales, and includes common blends like English Breakfast, Earl Grey, and Masala Chai.  OOLONG: (20-70% oxidation/50-75 mg caffeine) Oolong tea flavors range widely due to the horticulture and production of tea. They are popular in blends, in particular the infamous Dark Chocolate Peppermint Oolong over at Infinitea. It’s like sipping a thin mint cookie! GREEN TEA: (0% oxidation/35-70mg caffeine) Two major kinds of green tea, Japanese and Chinese, contain powerful antioxidants and polyphenols, especially EGCG. EGCG has been shown to fight and even kill cancer cells; it may also help lower LDL cholesterol. WHITE TEA: (0% oxidation/30-55mg caffeine) Using very young tea leaves means less processing and more health benefits retained. White tea has a light, mild flavor, and mixes well with fruits. ROOIBOS: (No caffeine) This South African tea is now available in many countries, sometimes known as redbush tea. It has similar health benefits with many antioxidants and has a naturally sweet and sometimes nutty flavor.
