New FDA Recommended Food Intake

Focus on fruits. Eat a variety of fruits-whether fresh, frozen, canned, or dried-rather than fruit juice for most of your fruit choices. For a 2,000-calorie diet, you will need 2 cups of fruit each day (for example, 1 small banana, 1 large orange, and 1/4 cup of dried apricots or peaches).

Vary your veggies. Eat more dark green veggies, such as broccoli, kale, and other dark leafy greens; orange veggies, such as carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, and winter squash; and beans and peas, such as pinto beans, kidney beans, black beans, garbanzo beans, split peas, and lentils.

Get your calcium-rich foods. Get 3 cups of low fat or fat-free milk-or an equivalent amount of low-fat yogurt and/or low-fat cheese (11/2 ounces of cheese equals 1 cup of milk)-every day. For kids aged 2 to 8, it's 2 cups of milk. If you don't or can't consume milk, choose lactose-free milk products and/or calcium-fortified foods and beverages.

Make half your grains whole. Eat at least 3 ounces of whole-grain cereals, breads, crackers, rice, or pasta every day. One ounce is about 1 slice of bread, 1 cup of breakfast cereal, or 1/2 cup of cooked rice or pasta. Look to see that grains such as wheat, rice, oats, or corn are referred to as "whole" in the list of ingredients.

Go lean with protein. Choose lean meats and poultry. Bake it, broil it, or grill it. And vary your protein choices-with more fish, beans, peas, nuts, and seeds.

Know the limits on fats, salt, and sugars. Read the Nutrition Facts label on foods. Look for foods low in saturated fats and trans fats. Choose and prepare foods and beverages with little salt (sodium) and/or added sugars (caloric sweeteners).

National Organic Standards and Labeling System

Organic foods are grown without the use of potentially harmful synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. Organic agriculture is specifically designed to promote and enhance soil biodiversity by using earth-friendly agricultural methods and practices.

The "organic" label denotes the use of materials and practices that enhance the earth's natural ecological balance. According to the National Organic Standards Board, the primary goal of organic agriculture is to optimize the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals, and people by seeking to restore, maintain, and enhance ecological harmony.

The USDA, with the aid of the National Organic Standards Board, established national organic standards for the production and handling of organically produced products. These standards include strict labeling requirements. That is, if the label says

Low carb diet may not help muscles building

Carbohydrate is one of the macronutrients and is our main fuel for the body. Carbohydrates have a protein-sparing effect. You need adequate carbohydrates in your diet to spare lean body mass. If carbohydrate is not available through your diet, the body will use its protein reserves (lean body mass) as fuel source. Therefore, a low calorie intake such as the low carb diet may use protein as a fuel source rather than be spared for muscle building purposes. Exercisers who are trying to improve the conditioning and fitness level of their muscles would benefit from a higher carbohydrate diet.

When signing up for Freshology, we will inquire about your physical activity including your goals. FRESHOLOGY provides you with the freshly prepared and balanced meals that provide your nutritional requirements to help you achieve your goals. Goals include muscle building, weight management, healthy diet, and reducing risk factors for diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

You can always go to FRESHOLOGY's home page and check if we have started deliver in your area by typing your zip code. If we are not delivering to your area currently, please sign up our Mailing List and an email notification will be sent to you when FRESHOLOGY expands services to your location. We look forward to serving you in the near future.

Diabetic patients: having diabetes doesn't mean you can't eat sweets

In the past, people with diabetes were warned to avoid sugar. Experts believed eating sugar would rapidly increase blood glucose, resulting in levels that were too high. Some people even thought eating sugar caused diabetes, an idea that we know now isn't true.

Research has shown that sugar has the same effect on blood glucose levels as other carbohydrates, also called carbs, such as bread or potatoes. Calorie for calorie, sugar raises blood glucose about the same amount as other carbohydrates. Now experts agree you can eat foods with sugar as long as you work them into your meal plan as you would any other carb-containing food.

The key to keeping your blood glucose on target is to substitute small portions of sweets for other carb-containing foods in your meals and snacks. Carb-containing foods include bread, tortillas, rice, crackers, cereal, fruit, juice, milk, yogurt, potatoes, corn, and peas. For many people, having about 45 to 60 grams at meals is about right.

Another option is to use low-calorie sweeteners in your diet. Low-calorie sweeteners are "free foods." They make food taste sweet, and have no calories and do not raise blood glucose levels. They do not count as a carbohydrate, a fat, or any other exchange. They can be added to your meal plan instead of substituted.

Celiac disease and wheat allergy are two distinct conditions

Wheat allergy refers specifically to adverse reactions involving immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies to one or more protein fractions of wheat, including albumin, globulin, gliadin and glutenin (gluten). These individuals must ONLY avoid wheat. Most wheat-allergic children outgrow the allergy. On the other hand, Celiac disease is a chronic digestive disorder found in individuals who experience a detrimental immune response when they ingest Gluten. Those who have celiac disease must avoid any grains that contain Gluten.

Gluten is the general term for a mixture of protein fragments found in common cereal grains such as rye, barley, oats, and wheat (including semolina, durum, spelt, triticale, and kamut). Small amounts of any of these fragments can cause intestinal damage in people with celiac disease. Current scientific consensus is that rice and corn (maize) are considered safe. In addition, millet, sorghum, Job's tears, teff, and ragi are thought to be close enough to corn in their genetic confirm this. Other grains suspected, but not proven, to be safe for those with celiac disease include buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa and rape.

Reversing Heart Disease Through Diet

Most people with coronary heart disease have a checkered history with food. They've eaten a few too many pizzas and french fries, perhaps, and not quite enough fruits and vegetables. Maybe you can relate. Instead of feeling bad about your past eating habits, you can look ahead and teach your mind and body that food is fuel. Some of that fuel is needed to help the heart pump blood to your vital organs. A healthy diet can go a long way toward preventing a heart attack - and it might even help clear your arteries. In fact, a study suggests that a low-fat diet may be as effective as statin drugs in reducing your cholesterol.

The Healthy Diet Overview: Go Easy On Fats!
Diets are as different as people. The foods you choose depend on your personal tastes. But when you have coronary heart disease, one rule remains the same: You have to go easy on fats, especially saturated fats. Your body quickly turns saturated fat into LDL cholesterol, the "bad" cholesterol that clogs your arteries.
According to the American Heart Association (AHA), people with coronary heart disease should get less than 30 percent of their calories from fat and less than 7 percent from saturated fat. For a 2,000-calorie diet, that adds up to less than 67 grams of fat and 16 grams of saturated fat. This will be helpful in lowering your cholesterol and cutting your risk of a heart attack. Reading package labels on processed foods will tell you how many grams of saturated fat you'll get in one serving; products such as milk, cheese, and meat are also high in saturated fat, as well as cookies, pizza, and other baked foods rich in butter, cheese, or cream.

Reduce Your Trans Fats Intake
Another dangerous and damaging culprit along with saturated fats is Trans unsaturated fats. Trans unsaturated fats or trans fats - sometimes found in margarine, fast foods, and some cookies or other snack foods - increase LDL levels and lower your HDL, the "good" cholesterol that helps keep your arteries clear. A study at Harvard University suggested that replacing just 2 percent of trans fat calories with calories from healthier fats reduced the risk of heart disease by more than 50 percent. Check product labels for "partially hydrogenated vegetable oil" - that's code for "trans fat." As of January 2006, it is now a requirement for food manufacturers to list trans fats on the nutrition content labels of all their products.

"Healthier Fats"
Some types of fat can help protect your heart, they are known as "healthier fats". Monounsaturated fats found in olive oil, canola oil, and some nuts actually reduce your LDL cholesterol level and slow the progression of heart disease. Polyunsaturated fats - found in soybean oil, corn oil, and many margarines - also reduce LDL cholesterol, but they may worsen coronary heart disease by making the remaining cholesterol "stickier." Omega-3 fatty acids - found in fish such as salmon and some fish oil or flaxseed supplements - may also lower your cholesterol and actually benefit your heart. Some may notice results immediately from dietary changes.

Beyond Fats
Fats aren't the only part of your diet worth watching. If you already have heart problems, the AHA recommends getting less than 200 milligrams of cholesterol each day. You should get at least 55 percent of your calories from carbohydrates, especially complex carbohydrates. That's equal to five to seven portions of fruits and vegetables and generous amounts of whole grains every day.
Putting more fruits and vegetables into your diet shouldn't be hard work. Most people can cut their consumption of saturated fat and trans fats in half by avoiding butter, margarine, fatty meats, as well as dairy.

Operation Fitness Alert!...
The Dangers Of Fructose, Caramelized and Barbecued Foods!

Until the in the 1970's we mainly used sucrose as a sweetener, especially in sodas, and consumed via food products/beverages only about 1/2 pound of fructose (mainly high fructose corn syrup) a year. In 1997 it was estimated that in the US average consumption was over 60 pounds of fructose (from sodas and sweetened foods) (data from HolisticHealthFoundation.com).

Why is fructose worse than glucose or sucrose?

  1. It requires the liver to break it down and uses up a lot of energy molecules - called ATP. Thereby making people fatigued and even may lead to fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome. Higher blood levels of fructose can be damaging to the protein in your body, as well.
  2. If the body tries to absorb fructose, without any sucrose present, the lower intestine has trouble digesting it and will produce excess gas. This can lead to bloating and diarrhea!
  3. People are misled thinking that the calories are what are bad about soft drinks - the Hidden Poison/Truth is that it is the high fructose corn syrup that does the damage in our system - obesity, hypertension etc.

The Dangers Of Eating Caramelized And Barbecued Foods! What are AGE'S? It stands for "advanced glycoslated end products". And ironically these AGE'S leads to AGING. The AGE'S are formed in a chemical reaction when proteins are heated together with sugars especially the fructose type of sugar. For example, in baking; we call it "toasting" - like bread crusts, but in this case. Cartelization occurs - like flan - a very dangerous food/dessert made from heating cooked milk together with sugar. When you tan a hide - and it gets stiff this is an AGE formation process. The same happens inside our bodies when our proteins are naturally reacting to too much fructose and glucose; we get stiff arteries, high blood pressure, etc. These AGE products do the damage to organs producing kidney damage, eye damage and overall organ aging. Can we ingest foods that contain AGE'S? Yes, we can easily absorb at least 10% of dietary age's" we eat. Worst - Most AGE'S are in:

  1. Blackened meats, fish and poultry.
  2. Burnt fat and protein and sugar in barbecued meats. All meats contain some sugars.
  3. Grilled meats, SAFEST are poached or boiled or steamed meats and fish. Of the AGE"S we absorb from food 2/3 stay in the body and produce injury and tissue aging (eyes, kidneys, arteries etc).

Freshology Nutritional Advantages
(written by Ken Babal)

Nutritionists agree that one of the toughest health goals is getting people to re-program their eating habits. It takes considerable effort to change old habits like overeating, skipping meals and not getting enough vegetables and fruits in the diet. Too many people are stuck in the rut of relying on packaged and fast foods because they don't have the time or desire to prepare meals and shop twice a week. This is evident in the obesity and diabetes epidemic that threatens to reduce quality of life and shorten the life expectancy of millions of Americans.

If you are struggling with these issues, Freshology home delivery of nutritionally balanced meals is worth considering. It's an investment in your health. You will immediately begin to enjoy the benefits of three carb-controlled meals and a snack per day with the right amount of calories for your weight goals.

Most people consume far too many calories for the amount of energy expended. If you look at the Nutrition Facts panel on packaged foods you will see that the information is based on a 2,000 calorie diet. Sometimes additional information is given for 2,500 calories. Most Americans are consuming in excess of 3,000 calories per day.

The best way to reduce body fat is to cut calories from fat, sugars and other refined carbohydrates. Nutritionists at Fresh Dining can help you determine the correct number of calories for weight-loss.

Freshology is a carb-controlled dietary plan. Studies support the idea that limiting carbohydrates is an effective strategy for managing weight. Starchy carbohydrates such as bread, potatoes, rice and pasta are calorie dense and produce a high glycemic response that can cause sharp rises in the blood sugar level. Vegetables and fruits, on the other hand, have a high water content and are antioxidant-rich. They are the superstars of nutrition.

I subscribe to the time-tested rule of three meals and one or two snacks per day. Some people mistakenly believe that eating only one meal a day will help them lose weight. This is absolutely the wrong approach. Daily calories should be spread out over the day. The goal should be to eat just enough to get you to your next meal-not too much, and not too little. The advantage is that you will have more even blood sugar and insulin levels, which will sustain your energy and minimize fat storage. This will be easy to accomplish when all of your meals are provided by Fresh Dining.

Definition of Physical Therapy
(written by Shawn Finnegan P.T.)

In 2005 the California senate amended the definition of physical therapy to expressly include "the promotion and maintenance of physical fitness to enhance the bodily movement related to health and wellness of individuals through the use of physical therapy interventions". Now, with these changes, the physical therapist is clearly authorized to perform physical therapy interventions for the purpose of wellness and fitness. Services related to wellness and fitness may include instruction in general flexibility and strength and conditioning exercise programs (Note: The statement above was provided by the Physical Therapy board of California).

Why use a P.T. for fitness and wellness services? A significant advantage a physical therapist has over today's fitness instructor is the unparalleled depth of education related to the health sciences. Also, the fact that a physical therapist can address both medical conditions and wellness issues broadens the scope of treatment for those who want a more comprehensive approach. Lastly, with a medical doctor's prescription, a physical therapist can bill health insurances thus easing the financial burden of a wellness/rehab program.

For more information and/or questions regarding physical therapy and how you can begin a wellness/rehab program, contact Shawn Finnegan P.T. at (310)902-4060 or e-mail: shawn@shawnfinnegan.com
