They’re fit and thin and slip effortlessly into clothes in the tiniest sizes. Unfortunately, I’m not one of them. For me, staying fit and at a healthy weight in middle age is an act of constant vigilance. I suspect it’s the same for most of us, no matter how easy it may appear to others. But this doesn’t mean we have to be marathon runners or live on celery sticks. Small things we do every day can go a long way toward staying healthy. Once they’re part of an everyday routine, they may indeed feel effortless. Here are a few things that work for me.</p> <p>1. Take advantage of healthy convenience foods<br /> I admit it: I pay extra for convenience foods when I know they’ll help me eat nutritiously. I used to feel guilty when I bought those outrageously priced packages of vegetables that are washed, sliced and ready to go. No longer. When I get home from the office at 6 p.m., having these packages in the fridge can mean the difference between a healthy or not-so-healthy meal. What’s more, by staying home and cooking rather than eating out, I’ve still saved money.</p> <p>2. Schedule exercise and make it nonnegotiable<br /> I’m amazed when high-powered, well-paid executives tell me they have no time for exercise. Who controls their lives? For years, I’ve set aside noon to 1:15 p.m. on my weekday calendar for exercise. Sure, things come up, but by scheduling it I consistently get in three to four days of noontime workouts every week. I’m also part of a group of women who have been exercising together for years. We have fun, and we keep each other motivated. We sometimes muse about what we’d all look like if we hadn’t been sweating together all these years. I vary what I do to keep it interesting. Lately I’m spinning to music on a stationary bike, practicing yoga and running on the days I can’t make it to the gym. I know I’m more productive, better able to handle stress and more content when I exercise.</p> <p>3. Don’t waste calories on bad food<br /> Think about what you are eating. I was on an early-morning flight to Chicago not long ago and was served a croissant breakfast sandwich. Knowing it was loaded with calories, my first thought was to just eat half. I took a bite. The croissant was greasy and tough, the egg was tasteless and the ham was still frozen. Yuck. I decided to eat the honeydew and cantaloupe and skip the sandwich.<br /> I saved the tasteless calories for something more enjoyable later. Turned out that night<br /> I had a fabulous meal in a great restaurant and knew I could indulge a bit because of the choice I made earlier in the day.</p> <p>4. Never travel without workout clothes<br /> When I pack for a trip, business or pleasure, the first things that go in my suitcase are sneakers and workout clothes. Yes, this means I can’t cram everything into a carry-on, but I rarely have to wait more than a few minutes at baggage claim anyway. Having my workout clothes means that if the weather cooperates and the area is safe, I head out for a morning run. I travel to Washington, D.C., regularly and look forward to a run past the Washington Monument before my workday begins. If I can’t get outside, I use the treadmill in the hotel gym. It’s not my first choice, but the exercise helps keep me alert during long meeting-filled days.</p> <p>5. Weigh yourself often<br /> Research shows that people who weigh themselves regularly are more likely to be at a healthy weight. I weigh myself just about every morning. I try to use the scale at the same time every day for consistency (and besides, I weigh less in the morning). I know if I weigh myself often I can get on top of a two- or three-pound weight gain. But if three pounds turns into five or more, it becomes overwhelming. By the way, according to obesity experts, daily weighing does not promote eating disorders. Yes, people with anorexia weigh themselves obsessively—but the disease came first, not the weighing.</p> <p>We all have tricks that work for us. My son Nicholas tries not to eat a serving of any one food that is larger than his fist. My husband’s mantra is “Don’t let your waist size get larger than your inseam”—easy for him to say at 6'4" tall. My beautiful friend Susan tries hard to eat only when she’s truly hungry, knowing that’s when food tastes best. The trick is establishing those small steps that work for you. Once they become routine, people might just start accusing you of being one of those people who are naturally fit and thin.<br /> -Rachel Johnson is senior nutrition advisor to EatingWell and dean of the University of Vermont College of Agriculture &amp; Life Sciences.</p> <p>Illustration by: Michael J.

Our diverse panel included Ric, who said, “There’s no cheese I wouldn’t put in my mouth”; Dan, a Cheddar guy who wasn’t convinced that reduced-fat cheese could actually taste good; Henry, a grilled-cheese connoisseur; Terry, who has been searching for an acceptable reduced-fat option; Robbie, a lover of artisan and exotic cheeses; and Jessie, who loves cheese but is cautious because she’s lactose-intolerant (most cheeses are low in lactose, since it’s drained off in the cheesemaking process). Here’s how our panel weighed in.</p> <p><strong>Cracker Barrel 2% Milk Natural Cheese, Extra Sharp Cheddar White</strong><br /> This cheese was the top pick by five of our six panelists. It also had the highest marks in appearance, taste, and texture. Dan, who vowed to never buy reduced-fat cheese, said he’d even set it out for guests. Henry said it tasted the most “real” of the options, and Jessie thought its balanced flavor had nice sharpness and acidity. Terry noted its square shape made it a great choice for cheese-and-crackers.</p> <p><strong>Cabot 50% Light</strong><br /> Robbie enjoyed the milk tang of the Cabot and its unobjectionable texture. Ric liked its sharper edge and nice appearance. Terry felt it was “sharper and cheesier” than the others, while Dan was fond of the flavor but wasn’t as keen about its texture.</p> <p><strong>Kraft 2% Milk Natural Reduced Fat Mild Cheddar Cheese</strong><br /> Ric’s favorite; he said, “This one has a complexity the others don’t have.” The chewy, gooey texture pleased Henry, who also noted it had a “different and better flavor than the others.” The slight sharpness appealed to Jessie, who thought this one would be a winner melted on nachos. But Robbie disliked its texture and believed the only place for it was atop a bland saltine.</p> <p>The Tasting Panel:<br /> Robbie Stanley, editor of The Charlotte News<br /> Ric Cengeri, rabid supporter of Preston North End, English football team<br /> Dan Cypress, EatingWell accounting manager<br /> Jessie Bradley, garden designer<br /> Henry Sengle, 7th-grade soccer lover<br /> Terry Wright, marketing manager</p> <p>Other cheeses EatingWell liked:</p> <p> * Crystal Farms Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese<br /> * Horizon Organic Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese<br /> * Tillamook Reduced Fat Medium Cheddar Cheese</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/kitchen_product_reviews/eatingwell_taste_test_reduced_fat_cheddars#comments Carolyn Malcoun April/May 2006 Healthy Cooking - Kitchen Product Reviews Fri, 14 Aug 2009 14:58:03 +0000 Sarah Hoff 9515 at http://www.eatingwell.com Building Better Bones http://www.eatingwell.com/nutrition_health/bone_health/building_better_bones <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Joyce Hendley </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Magnesium helps the body use calcium, keeping bones strong. Are you getting enough? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Researchers with the ongoing Health, Aging and Body Composition Study (Health ABC) looked at the records of 2,038 elderly men and women to determine the amount of magnesium they were getting through foods and supplements, then measured their bone density using a scanning device called a fan-beam densitometer. They found that among white men and women, the more magnesium they took in, the denser their bones: “for every 100-milligram increase in magnesium, there was a 2 percent increase in bone density,” says lead author Kathryn Ryder, M.D., a physician at the University of Tennessee in Memphis, one of the study’s centers.</p> <p>While that doesn’t sound like a lot, the researchers concluded that even small improvements in bone density can have a “major public health effect” in preventing debilitating bone fractures, since denser bones are stronger and less likely to break. No such relationship in magnesium intake and bone density was found among the African-American participants in the study.</p> <p>Just how magnesium helps bones isn’t entirely clear, but the mineral seems to be vital in how the body uses calcium. “Magnesium might impact how the body’s hormones that regulate calcium are released and regulated—and maybe even how effective they are,” says Ryder. That African-Americans didn’t see as much bone benefit may be due to differences in those hormones, she suggests, “or other factors we weren’t able to tease out.”</p> <p>But black or white, just about everyone could benefit from increasing their magnesium intake, since most people—including most Health ABC participants—don’t get enough. (People with kidney problems need to be cautious, however; “everyone should speak with their doctors before making a major dietary change,” says Ryder.)</p> <p>How? Aim for 3 or 4 daily servings of low-fat dairy products if you can tolerate them, says Ryder, “since milk is a good source of both calcium and magnesium”—and get plenty of magnesium-rich foods like dark green vegetables, beans, avocados and nuts. If that’s not enough to put you in the recommended ranges [420 mg per day for men, 320 mg for women], she adds, “consider a calcium-plus-magnesium supplement if your doctor okays it.” Just don’t go overboard; experts consider 350 mg a safe upper limit for magnesium supplements.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/nutrition_health/bone_health/building_better_bones#comments Joyce Hendley April/May 2006 Bone Health Diet, Nutrition & Health - Bone Health Thu, 13 Aug 2009 17:54:13 +0000 Penelope Wall 9496 at http://www.eatingwell.com Avocado Tea Sandwiches http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/avocado_tea_sandwiches.html <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/avocado_tea_sandwiches.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/recipes/AP5176.JPG" alt="Avocado Tea Sandwiches Recipe" title="Avocado Tea Sandwiches Recipe" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/avocado_tea_sandwiches.html" target="_blank">Avocado Tea Sandwiches</a></div> <div>Smoked salmon plays off crispy cucumber and creamy avocado.</div> http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/avocado_tea_sandwiches.html#comments April/May 2006 English/Irish/Scottish Easy Diabetes appropriate Healthy weight Low calorie Low carbohydrate Low cholesterol Low sodium Digestive Health Easter Mother's Day Recipes - Individual Recipes Recipes & Menus - Avocados Citrus Eggs Fish Vegetables Wheat Fish Lunch Snack No-cook Fall Spring Summer Winter 4 Entertaining, formal Quick (total 30 min. or less) 15 minutes or less Sandwich Snack Tue, 26 May 2009 17:58:08 +0000 admin 4865 at http://www.eatingwell.com Tangy Green Goddess Dressing http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/tangy_green_goddess_dressing.html <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/tangy_green_goddess_dressing.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/recipes/ST5175.JPG" alt="Tangy Green Goddess Dressing Recipe" title="Tangy Green Goddess Dressing Recipe" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/tangy_green_goddess_dressing.html" target="_blank">Tangy Green Goddess Dressing</a></div> <div>Avocado and herbs lend color to this creamy dressing.</div> http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/tangy_green_goddess_dressing.html#comments April/May 2006 American Easy Diabetes appropriate Gluten free Healthy weight Heart healthy Low calorie Low carbohydrate Low cholesterol Low saturated fat Digestive Health Recipes - Individual Recipes Recipes & Menus - Avocados Dairy Vegetables Dinner
