My Top Five Tips for a successful Nutrition Month in March

Posted by

To celebrate Nutrition Month, here are my top five tips to better health over the month of March (and beyond!)

Hydrate

Your body works better when you’re hydrated. Water is needed to flush internal garbage (we have lots to get rid of) through the kidneys, and then out of your body. Your blood is 92% water when hydrated, which keeps your blood moving freely through veins and arteries. The first step for high or low blood pressure is a large glass of water! To run on all cylinders, for maximum energy, hydration is essential. Every cell in your body needs water and won’t function as it should without it. Trying to balance weight is difficult as you can get mixed messages about hunger versus needing a big glass of water because you’re dehydrated. When our cells are depleted of water, they cannot create the energy we need to function, and so they send a signal to the brain that you’re hungry. Quite simply, dehydration can lead to overeating.

Do: drink at least 2L of water a day. Coffee, juice and soft drinks don’t count.

Jerry Agar’s Diet Makeover!

Posted by

Last Friday, I started NewsTalk1010’s Jerry Agar on his new eating program and so far he has been doing great! He’s been ready for this for about a month and as I highlighted on the show last week, when you’re ready to make a change, the follow through and success is much better than if someone tells you to make a change. I’m proud of him and grateful to be on this journey with him. No one ever regretted eating better!

I did have quite a few emails asking about what Jerry’s doing so here’s a quick rundown:

I changed it up a bit from last week’s blog. He is following the Transform30 program and he’s taking Juice Plus+ capsules that are full of 27 fruits, vegetables, and berries. Juice Plus+ is a blend of juice, that’s made into a powder, by a cool and very high-tech process, then encapsulated. It offers a very digestible and easy way to get loads of fruits and veggies in, without having to juice pounds and pounds of produce, or clean the juicer! I gave him this because he doesn’t eat well enough to support his body. He needs antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and enzymes. That’s what he’s going to get with his daily Juice Plus+ capsules as well as improving his diet.

Can Probiotics Help You Lose Weight?

The human body is a complex machine, isn’t it? I find the more I learn about it, as science advances, the more and more the picture of it’s functioning (and dysfunction) seems complex. For example, we are told that weight management is an equation: eat an equal number of calories to those your burn to stay around the same weight. But this is only true if all the parts that help to convert your food into fuel that burns are working correctly.
