The Best and Worst Foods of Summer

It’s kind of a myth that summer means more exercise and healthier food choices for everyone. One eye-opening study found that kids gain weight three times faster over summer than they do the rest of the school year, thanks to a steady diet of junk food and video games.

And while there’s no comparable stat on grown-ups and weight gain, barbecues, state fairs, and waterside food vendors offer plenty of temptation. Here are the summer foods you should always avoid, and healthier options you can feel free to enjoy.

Starches are one type of carbohydrate; sugar are also carbohydrates. Both types are necessary for a balanced diet.

2. Eating less food makes the stomach shrink?
False!

TRUE!
The best way to lose weight is to reduce one’s intake of fats.

5. The speed with which you eat your food is irrelevant to your diet?
False !
It takes the average person 20 minutes to receive the signal from the stomach to the brain that he or she is full. If you eat rapidly, you’re apt to overeat before receiving the signal from the brain that your stomach of full.

6. It’s impossible to reconstruct a recipe so that it’s low in calories?
False !
It is often easy to reduce the calories in a dish if you consider all the ingredients. Substitute items such as low-calorie vegetable spray for shortening, skimmed milk for cream and artificial sweetener for sugar.

7. Milk is so good nutritional that you can’t drink too much of it?
• False !
Milk is good nutritionally, but it is high in calories. Five glass of homogenized milk equals 825. No food, no matter how good it is nutritionally, can be eaten in unlimited quantities.

8. Is it nutritionally better to eat fresh rather than frozen or canned fruit?
• False ! - SURPRISED !?!?!?
Frozen fruit is equal in nutritional value to fresh fruit. Due to modern canning processes, the nutritional value of water packed fruit is only slightly less that fresh, although it has a few more calories than fresh fruit.

9. Heating and toasting food decreases its calories?
• False !
Heating and cooking food does nothing to the calorie content.

10. As people get older they inevitably put on weight?
• False !
As you get older, your body’s basic energy requirements lessen and if you continue to eat as much as you did when you were younger, you will gain weight. However, weight gain is not inevitable if you reduce your food intake and exercise regularly.

11. White eggs have less nutritional value than brown eggs?
• False !
Whether an egg comes in a white shell or a brown shell, it is still an egg and has the same nutritional value.

12. The body uses more energy to burn calories from carbohydrates than to burn calories from fat, so carbohydrates are less fattening?
• TRUE
All calories are not equal and carbohydrates and protein calories are not as fattening as fat calories because it takes more energy to process them.

13. Spray vitamins are the best Delivery system to get your nutrition?
• TRUE
According to the physician's Desk Reference and drugs.com it’s ranked as the best way to take your Vitamins. https://www.drugs.com/drp/vitamist-intra-oral-spray.html

14. Too much meat tends to add extra pounds?
• TRUE
Meat is high in protein, but also high in fat and calories. Too many calories, no matter where they come from, add pounds !!!!

15. If you consistently feel weak or tired while dieting, it is just a normal results of cutting calories?
• False !
Just reducing calories does not cause fatigue. If you are feeling weak and fatigued, you may have cut your calories intake too severely (below 800 calories a day is considered unsafe without medical supervision) or your diet isn’t a balanced diet and you’re not getting all the nutrients you need. Stay away from fad diets when trying to reduce.

16. Drinking less water will relieve that bloated feeling and rid the body of water?
• False !
One of the ways to assist in eliminating excess fat and waste products from the system is by maintaining a liberal intake of water. Eight glasses a day is not too much. Water can also help reduce hunger by making you feel more full.

17. Grapefruit and grapefruit juice burn fat and so fat can be consumed in unlimited quantities?
• False !
All foods contain calories. There are no magic fat-burning foods or substances. Grapefruit juice contains approximately the same amount of calories as orange juice and should be consumed in moderation.

18. A few extra pounds is bad for your health?
• False !
Scientific studies have shown that otherwise healthy individuals, such as those without hypertension or disease, can carry as many as 10 to 15 extra pounds without adverse health effects.

19. Eating balanced meals is not important if a vitamin is taken daily?
• False !
Vitamins are supplements, but that’s all. It’s a misconception that you can eat an unbalanced diet and take a vitamin pill and not worry about it. A vitamin pill that has everything you need hasn’t been invented yet.

20. Beer has  little nutritional value?
• True !
It may taste good to you, but a 12 ounce can of beer is 151 calories and not much else. It has very few nutrients.

21. The most important part of any diet is protein, and any high or all protein diet is desirable?
• False !
The average person’s diet contains twice as much protein as is needed. Since many protein foods are also high in calories - red meat, for instance, because of its high fat content - a diet very high in protein can provide more calories than your body can burn. And, what doesn’t get burned turns to fat on your body.

22. A diet pill is very helpful diet aid?
• False !
Although diet pills may help some persons get started on weight loss, there’s no substitute for learning how to eat correctly. You must learn how to eat correctly for the rest of your life, not depend on diet pills.

23. Protein is protein - it does not matter what kind of food it comes from?
• False !
Proteins are made up of amino acids. There are 20 amino acids, nine are essential to health in adults. Some foods have all 9 of them and some do not. That’s why it is better to balance our diet with several protein sources rather than just eating one constantly. This is especially important on a vegetarian diet.

24. Most overweight people have glandular problems?
• False !
A very small percentage of overweight people have a glandular problem. The rest are simply eating more calories than they are burning.

25. Losing two pounds per week for more than two weeks is desirable?
• TRUE !!!!!!!
Two pounds per week is a very healthy weight loss rate. There is no problem with dehydration, muscle cramping and drastic lowering of blood pressure with light-headedness and feeling weak.

26. You should never skip a meal when you’re dieting even if you’re not particularly hungry?
• False !
It’s a myth. There is no scientific evidence to support the idea that one should eat when one is NOT hungry. That if you skip a meal when you are not hungry it will cause you to overeat your next meal. Of course, if you’re dieting, and you are hungry, you shouldn’t skip any meals, because the longer you wait, the more hungry you are going to get.

Seeking Nutritional Counseling

Seeking Nutritional Counseling

Nutrition counseling is the therapeutic prescription of specific dietary nutrients to improve health. These can be either macronutrients or micronutrients.

Because food is essential to life, therapies involving plants, foods, and nutritional elements naturally seem fundamental to a person's health and well-being.

Sound nutrition counseling can play a vital role in developing a health plan, but the emphasis needs to be on the word sound. Nutrition is one of the more complicated subjects regular people encounter in their daily lives. We are bombarded with messages, many of them contradictory. We need to use math to evaluate calories and nutrient content. There are dozens of different nutrients and micronutrients we may encounter on our path to good health, and conflicting advice from experts on many of them.

Gummy Candy Could Be Healthier Than Gummy Vitamins

Gummy Candy Could Be Healthier Than Gummy Vitamins

Which is Troubling, As Gummy Bears Aren't Healthy At All

Nutrition can be an endlessly confusing science, full of contradictory information — Does expensive really mean healthier? Is a vegan diet actually good for you? What does moderation even mean, anyway? — but every so often, you run into a decision that seems like a no-brainer. Like, for example, whether it’s better to satisfy your sweets craving with a handful of gummy vitamins or a handful of actual gummy candy. Both are made pretty much entirely of substances you can’t pronounce, but one is actually good for you. Obviously, you go with the vitamins.

400,000 Massage Therapists Can't Be Wrong

400,000 Massage Therapists Can't Be Wrong

Do you want to know why massage therapists named VitaMist named the 2016 Product of the Year?  The answer is in some of the company president William Deihl's comments upon accepting the award.

"We want to educate consumers who have been misinformed by malicious marketing campaigns for years.  There are robust solutions to many of your health problems, and most of these solutions don't have a price tag attached."

 In addition to retail products, VitaMist offers free health articles online at vitamist.com, stressing the importance of proper diet and exercise, rather than resorting to harmful supplements and medications.  Free nutritional coaching is available via phone for all customers and seminars at various conferences throughout the United States.  VitaMist offers free healthcare discount cards for all who ask, no purchase necessary.

"The highly complementary combination of massage therapy and nutrition work in concert to improve health and support our bodies. Through a whole body view of health maintenance, addressing diet, nutrition, exercise, and rehabilitation we are better able to support our customers, promote healthy habits and prevent health issues."

VitaMist Spray Vitamins provides vitamin and mineral food supplements for a new generation of health care providers and educated consumers. The numerous products in VitaMist's ever expanding arsenal meet the needs of customers worldwide.

When President Deihl was in Atlantic City to accept the award, he spoke at length with those attending about the positive benefits of nutrition and promoting the concept of "diet support."  Diet Support is the idea that changing your diet should not be painful, and should be for rest of your long and healthy life,  rather than harmful weight loss plans that involve drugs, unreasonable menus, and questionable supplements.

VitaMist talks a lot about diet, exercise and especially nutrition, which makes sense given that they are a nutritional supplement company.  Diet, exercise, and proper nutrition are not all that you need for good health.  To be truly healthy requires taking care of your body, your mind, and your spirit.  Your diet, mood, cognitive ability, physical health, and immune health are in a complex balancing act.  Each one is connected to the others, having profound effects upon each other.  Healing one of these areas will benefit the others while neglecting any one of them can bring them all crashing down. 

President Deihl reiterated that VitaMist is, "... honored to receive the 2016 Product of the Year Award from an organization as caring, reputable and charitable as The World Massage Festival. VitaMist supports their mission and looks forward to many more years of making people healthy."  He is scheduled to speak again at the 2017 World Massage Festival.
