New Products H Haavvee yoou eevveerr ccoonnssiideerreedd ddooiinngg aa cclleeaanssee?? QUESTION OF THE MONTH: MediClear is a great product that we are now carrying in the clinic. MediClear comes with a well-written booklet that explains the cleanse in detail – something many companies don’t offer. Not only can a cleanse be a great start to your weight loss program, but it can also be used to break through a plateau or find out if you have any hidden food allergies/ sensitivities. Food allergies/ sensitivities have been linked to food cravings and can make losing weight more of a challenge.

Read all about GMOs and why you don’t want them in the foods you eat: http://www.responsibletechnology.org/GMFree/Home/index.cfm www.seedsofdeception.org MONTHLY CHALLENGE Each month we will present a challenge. Accept theses challenges as a way to help reach your goals. It takes small steps to progress by leaps and bounds. This month’s challenge: “Eat Your Vegetables!” Vegetables are an important source of vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial compounds, such as antioxidants. Most Americans do not eat enough vegetables. Rules: 5 servings per day Serving size: ½ cup cooked or 1 cup raw Must include at least 3 different colors of vegetables each day and one of those must be green No same vegetable can be used more than 2 days in a row A: Are you looking to restrict your calories or are you working on improving your health and losing weight is part of that? Don’t be fooled by a company’s marketing strategies! Just because a package contains only 100 calories doesn’t mean the food is good for you. Make a commitment to read labels and you will see that many of the prepackaged foods are indeed junk food. Junk food may give you a few minutes of taste satisfaction and an hour of decreased hunger, but they also damage your health. Junk food is laden with bad fats, sugar, and chemicals. Read food labels. You DO NOT want to see any of the following ingredients in your food, esecially if they appear in the first 5 ingredients: 1. Hydrogenated oil (trans fats). If a product has less than .5 grams per serving, they can still put “0 Trans Fats” on the label. Don’t be fooled by this loophole. Another type of fat to avoid is saturated animal fat. 2. High-fructose corn syrup or sugar. 3. Anything that is a processed grain (you want “whole grain”). Processed grains are stripped of nutrients and you will see “enriched” on the label. 4. Artificial ingredients, including sweeteners, flavors and preservatives. Suggestions for Making Your Own Healthy 100 Calorie Snacks: 12-15 raw almonds or 10-12 pecans. 1 medium apple with 5-7 raw nuts. 1 Wasa light rye cracker with 2 teaspoons almond butter. Low-fat string cheese (1 ounce) with 8 medium strawberries. 4 oz low-fat cottage cheese (1% fat) with 1/3 cup fresh blueberries. ISSUE August VOLUME I YEAR 2007 Healthy Weight Is Your Food Boring? Are you eating the same foods day after day? Are you sick and tired of eating salads? Do you feel like there isn’t much of a choice when it comes to eating healthy foods? If you answered “yes” to any of these, it is time for a change! If you have relied on fast food and microwave dinners, then it should come as no surprise that you are struggling with food boredom. You need new tools in your bag of tricks. The question is, how are you going to get them? You have embarked on a journey to a slimmer and healthier you and learning new skills has to be a part of the process. I have never known of a process of change that did not require a timecommitment. “Oh no” you say, “I was afraid of that.” I can hear many of you whining already – you have no time, you don’t like healthy food, you can’t possibly schedule something else in, you don’t know how to cook, and on and on. In order to change your life you must be willing to change what you do on a daily basis. Learning new ways of eating and preparing foods is part of that process. For those of you who have not admitted that, it is time to take a deep breath and say, “o.k., I am ready.” Just like learning a new language, learning new ways of eating will take some time. focus Suggestions: Make/ order food from a meal service. *See information under “Meal Services” in this newsletter. Prepare foods ahead of time. Try 1 new recipe each week. Trade a prepared meal with a friend each week. Be sure each of you makes enough for leftovers or to feed your entire family. Take cooking classes. Don’t eat the same food for more than 2 days in a row. What’s New?
