The Overworked Person’s Guide to Better Nutrition: Simple Steps YOU Can Take to Eat Well, Reduce Stress, and Improve Your Health.

It has been awhile since my last post—too long! I’m excited to tell you about a new series you’ll be seeing on Neily on Nutrition. With so many amazing colleagues authoring books—what better way to share than through my blog.

Kristine James

Together with Kristine James, a dietetic student at Kansas State University, we’ll be featuring books written by registered dietitian nutritionists focused on helping you live a healthier lifestyle.

I first chose registered dietitian nutritionist Jill Weisenberger for Kristine to interview because Jill has not one, but three books. Her third book was recently released 21 Things You Need to Know About Diabetes and Your Heart but it’s actually Jill’s second book I’m most interested in, The Overworked Person’s Guide to Better Nutrition: Simple Steps YOU Can Take to Eat Well, Reduce Stress, and Improve Your Health

Here’s Kristine’s interview! Continue reading

Yes, you can overeat ‘good for you’ foods!

Previously I wrote about a common reason someone might hit a plateau in their weight loss efforts. This post is not about plateaus but just weight loss in general—why someone may not make the progress they feel they deserve.

Let me tell you about another client I had and not an uncommon issue I see amongst individuals doing all the right things but lamenting, “I just don’t get it. I don’t eat fast food, fried food, refined white flour, highly processed foods, etc. but I’m not losing weight. I should be losing weight eating the way I do.” Continue reading

9 Quick Tips to Manage Weight (and why I won’t eat beets and Brussels sprouts)

Fruit and Oatmeal Breakfast ParfaitNutritionBabes.com

Have you ever been so hungry that you ate so fast and too much? All of a sudden your stomach is about to explode? It has been said it takes 20 minutes for the brain to register fullness. If hungry I’m sure you know you can eat a lot in a short period. Gradually brain chemicals and stomach hormones catch up to one another—then it’s the oh my gosh why did I eat so much feeling. Sound familiar? You’re not alone. Continue reading

No need to deprive – just follow the 80/20 rule

One of my favorite nutrition and weight management tips is the 80/20 rule. What is the 80/20 rule? Eighty percent of the time you want to be doing the right thing—20 percent of the time you can afford some indulgences.

It’s an especially good rule this time of year—around the holidays but like all my tips it’s pertinent all through the year. Of course celebrations are expected and it’s not always easy to tighten the belt. So just follow the 80/20 rule and you’ll be good to go! Continue reading

Mind the BLTs! (The bites, licks, and tastes that make managing weight a challenge)

No, I’m not talking bacon, lettuce, tomato sandwiches—although love that kind of BLT (as a treat of course!). BLTs are nutrition speak for bites, licks and tastes. Have you ever considered calories consumed throughout the day that aren’t a part of meals you’re consuming? A little here, a little there – it can add up making it challenging to meet weight management goals. Continue reading

Enjoy the festivities. Celebrate the season. But don’t let it be a feeding frenzy!

The holidays are in full swing! For some it’s a feeding frenzy starting with Halloween and sometimes not ending until the Superbowl!

Contrary to popular belief the average person does not gain 5-10 pounds over the holidays. They may gain one or two. The problem is it may not come off after the first of the year and therefore causing weight creep. Continue reading
