Liquid Calories: Evil, Alluring and Dangerous

As you head off into the summer sun and begin to thirst for a nice, tall, cool drink, sporting an umbrella or not … consider this!!!
Researchers recently found that ‘liquid calories’ pose more of a threat to dieters than real food! According to the MSNBC report:
“Among beverages, sugar-sweetened beverages was the only beverage type significantly associated with weight change at both the 6- and 18-month follow up periods,” said Dr. Liwei Chen, lead author of the study and an epidemiologist at Louisiana State University’s School of Public Health.
“Our study supports policy recommendations and public health efforts to reduce intakes of liquid calories, particularly from sugar-sweetened beverages, in the general population,” she said.

What does that mean? It means that if you want to permanently remove your excess weight, you need to steer clear of soft drinks and soda, as well as fruit drinks, fruit punch – any and all beverages that are sweetened with sugar – and limit your intake of diet drinks, milk (whole or otherwise), 100% fruit and/or vegetable juice, coffee, tea with sugar or without and certainly alcoholic beverages.

Think about it! If you were to ingest even one sugary drink, i.e. a 20-ounce bottle of cola at 250 calories, daily for two weeks, you would gain 1 pound. In addition, to excess layers of unwanted adipose tissue (a.k.a. fat), you are increasing your chances of developing diabetes, damaging your kidneys and goodness knows what else!
Do “It” for Your Body! If you can’t give up sugary drinks for yourself, do it for your body. Just imagine the sugared journey through-out your body and mind and the damage it’s leaving in its wake.

Biggest Loser Winner: Helen Phillips’ big win?

I don’t mean to be a buzz-kill ... and I do offer my heartfelt weighty congratulations to Helen Phillips for losing 54.47% of her initial weight (now weighing in at 117 pounds), and for gaining $250,000 and a new attitude.
Still when the 48 year old Helen exclaimed, “140 pounds [lost]! Yes! Yes!” I couldn’t help but to think … “Lose it and you will find it. What about permanent fat removal? How will you keep it off without the cameras, the trainers, the television cameras?”
There you have it friends. The buzz-kill! Sorry … but I am always concerned when people lose large amounts of weight in a short amount of time. Particularly when their incentive is an event or a date or a happening.
My question to Helen, the rest of the losers, and to you! When you ‘lose’ your excess weight, what’s your maintenance plan? What will keep you motivated and moving forward? How will you manage to re-create yourself and your lifestyle to stay connected and in alignment with your new svelte body?
Any advice for Helen Phillips on how to keep it going? Weigh-in below, please!

Elizabeth Edwards: from public humiliation to new reality

This article, written by Beliefnet blogger Janice Taylor is featured in both The Huffington Post and USA Today! Read on and be sure to comment!
Janice Taylor's portrait of Elizabeth Edwards.jpg
People say that we only get ‘what we can handle,’ that there are ‘lessons to be learned,’ and some simply say that God works in mysterious ways.
I’m not so sure about any of that, but what I do know is that when the bottom falls out, when the sky falls in, when the rug is ripped out from under, when our spirits have plummeted 10,000 leagues beneath the sea, we can either dig deep, find a way to move forward, grow, and cultivate an “I can take this on; I can get through this” attitude — however painful — or we can fall into the abyss.
With that in mind, I am humbled and at the same time curious by Elizabeth Edwards’ new reality and the way in which she negotiates her way through its ever-changing, enormously complex and multi-layered landscape. As if she hasn’t had enough ‘life lessons,’ in particular the loss of her dear son, Wade, she now endures a series of new losses — her health, a most sacred relationship, and her reality.
I am sure Elizabeth has her meltdown moments (or even days or weeks), and well she should let it out, but instead of sending out invites to a pity party, she writes (without a ghost writer, straight from her own heart) her book Resilience which offers a lesson.
Elizabeth Edwards’ life was on track, and she was steaming forward on all eight cylinders. From a place of incredible abundance and achievement, with the kind of status and prestige that people only dream of, her journey took an unexpected hair-pin turn, and suddenly she was plunged into a pit of shame, confusion, sadness, betrayal, loss and illness, all very much in the public eye.
Inevitably, there are for all of us, new realities to cultivate — to tend, to plow, to grow. Even when all systems are a glowin’ happy, life can and sometimes does take an unexpected twist. Life is precarious. And it makes us wonder…
… At the end of the day, what can we count on; what’s it all about?
Answer: Character — The capacity to feel hopeful, to hold to a deep conviction that there is meaning in life, and to have a sense of connection to the bigger picture, whether it is God, or family or community.

Rebecca Romijn: Lose 60 Pounds, No Exercise!

Rebecca Romijn (a.k.a. Rebecca Romain and Rebecca Romjin-Stamos) claims that she lost (never to be found again) 60 lbs after giving birth to twin girls, Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip … 35 pounds in the first three weeks, in fact, without doing anything! Except …
Breast Feeding! Disappointed? Thought you could ‘not’ do whatever she was ‘not’ doing?!
To all new mothers out there … the experts say that you should avoid excessive exercising and crazy, fad weight loss plans. Remember, whatever you are bringing into your body is being released on some level through your breast milk straight to your baby!
More breast feeding advice: Go the full 3 months, at least, to best build a better immune system for your baby! And as Rebecca says, you’ll lose that weight without doing anything! :)
For those of us who are not planning on breast feeding any time soon (or for those of us whose breast feeding days are over!) … try healthy eating! :)
