2013 Diet Trends!

Filed under: DietsFoodLisa DeFazio

A survey of more than 200 registered dietitians, conducted by Pollock Communications, a health and wellness communications firm based in New York City, revealed five top diet and lifestyle trends that will “make news and be on consumers’ minds” in 2013.

Trend 1: Natural and simple meals with few ingredients are in. Low-fat and low-carb are out.

The focus is whole foods, fewer preservatives and processed foods. Although some low fat and low carb products are fine, read the label, as they may contain excessive sugar, salt and fat.

Trend 2: To lose weight or adapt a healthier lifestyle, more consumers will look to the wheat belly/gluten free approach, as well as commercial diet programs.

A Gluten free diet can really benefit those with specific medical conditions, such as celiac disease. Some choose to adapt the diet without a specific medical condition. The gluten-free approach doesn’t really benefit the general population. If anything a gluten free diet may be too limited and restrictive and the person without allergies will get frustrated. The gluten free diet is designed for individuals with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

Regarding commercial diet programs, I encourage people to do what it takes for them to be successful with weight loss and health goals. Commercial programs provide education, accountability and support from others going through the same thing. Individuals motivate one another and since you pay for the program you are more likely to show up and follow it.

This is… weird.

10 Health Tips For 2013: Stop Counting!

Filed under: FitnessHealth

10 tips new years stop counting never

Everyone makes a New Year's resolution to be healthier, but precious few actually follow through on it!

But what if there were simple ways you could improve your health?

Dietician Julieanna Hever says there are, and she has ten amazing tips for staying healthy in 2013!

Here's one!

Stop counting and start listening.

Forget calories, fat grams, and carbohydrates. The more we count, the more confused we get, and it has no benefit to the waistline. Instead, tune into your true signals of hunger and satiety to know when to eat and when you have had enough. If you eat a widely varied, high fiber, whole foods diet, you will get the perfect amount of macronutrients (carbs, fats, proteins) you need naturally. When you feel hungry: STOP, close your eyes, and ask yourself, “Am I truly hungry? Does an apple sound delicious?” If the answer is “yes,” eat. If not, try curbing your eating by staying out of the kitchen and treating yourself to a non-food reward like:

· Taking a hot bath with a splash of essential oil or salts

· Surfing your favorite websites

· Reading a juicy book

· Searching social media for supportive friends, groups, and inspiration

· Playing good music

· Texting, calling, or emailing someone who makes you feel good

Check back with us for more of the 10 Great Health Tips for 2013! Special thanks to Julieanna Hever!
