Dining Out on a Diet: Guilt-Free and Delicious (recipe included)

Our Lady of WEight Loss: GO FISH.jpgFor those of us are watching our weight, counting calories and/or carbs and find dining-out a bit daunting, I’ve got two words for you. “Order Ceviche!”
Ceviche (also spelled cebiche or seviche) is a seafood dish that is marinated in a citrus-based mixture, lemons and limes being the most commonly used. In addition to adding a fresh flavor and bite to the dish, the citric acid causes the proteins in the fish to become ‘denatured,’ which pickles or ‘cooks’ the fish without heat. This low carb, low calorie dish (approximately 175 per cup) is bursting with flavor, absolutely de-lish, totally satisfying and is 100% guilt-free.
It is popular in mainly Latin American countries such as Peru, Panama, Ecuador, Mexico, Guatemala, Columbia and Chile. Both finfish and shellfish are sued; finfish is typically raw (denatured as described above), while the shellfish is typically cooked.
While Peru is often noted as the birthplace of ceviche, each country puts its own touch on the dish by adding a variety of garnishes. In Peru, ceviche is served with slices of cold sweet potatoes or corn-on-the-cob. In Ecuador, it is accompanied by popcorn, nuts or corn nuts.
If you’d like to give it a try at home, here’s a to-die-for recipe!

Kirstie Alley: A puzzle for these fat times.

Click to Mix and Solve
This week’s jig-saw weight loss art was inspired by Kirstie Alley’s appearance on Oprah (Thursday, April 30). I empathize with both Kirstie and Oprah. I’ve lost ‘it’ and found ‘it’ more than once.
Here’s a link to my this week’s post about the show:

Boost Your Immune System: Survive Swine Flu

Dramatically Increase Your Ability to Survive Swine Flu
Avoid airplanes, subways, confined spaces and BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM!!!
Imagine that your immune system is your own personal army. Your troops guard against attacks from ‘alien’ forces, and they defend against invaders. If we ignore, abandon or mistreat this system, it weakens.
However, when we take care of our personal army, when we keep the troops happy, energized, and performing at their peak, we can boost our immune system and our chances of staying healthy are increased dramatically.
How to Defend Against Swine Flu and Boost Your Immune System
1. SLEEP DEPRIVED NATION – The body rejuvenates and strengthens itself when it is at rest. For the most part, we require approximately 8 to 10 hours per night. Sleep has been linked to balanced hormone levels (including human growth hormone and the stress hormone, cortisol). The right amount of sleep can help to keep weight down, clear thinking and reasoning, improved mood, and vibrant, healthy skin.
Specifically with regard to our immune system, a study published in the journal Seminars in Clinicial Neuropsychiatry indicates that “significant detrimental effects of immune functioning can be seen after a few days of total sleep deprivation or even several days of just partial sleep deprivation.” Get your zzz’s!
2. WATER, WATER, WATER – Staying hydrated can alleviate headaches, alleviate depression, hydrate skin – keep you youthful and happy! AND … Water flushes the body of toxins! You should be drinking daily, your body weight in pounds, divided by two = number of ounces of water per day.
3. ELIMINATE REFINED WHITE SUGAR. If you really want to boost your immune system, experts suggest that you eliminate sugar. Your energy levels will improve, your weight distribution will change, you will think more clearly, have less cravings, and your immune system will be strengthen … dramatically!
4. FILL UP YOUR PLATE (and YOU) with Fruits and Veggies! The nutritional value that you receive from raw fruits and vegetables is unparalleled. Their vitamins (with an emphasis on Vitamins A and C), phyto-chemicals that give fruits and veggies their color and antioxidants protect cells against environmental toxins and give your immune function a real big boost!
5. TEA TIME. Green tea is a rich source of a type of antioxidant called a catechin. Preliminary research has found that a specific catechin called epigallocatechin gallate (egcg), may give the beverage antigen-fighting abilities. In other words, it may well boost your immune system.
6. INGEST FRIENDLY BACTERIA. Foods that contain probiotics, bacteria that stimulate immunity cells in the gastrointestinal tract, are found in yogurt or kefir drink. One drink per day may well keep infections away! Make sure that you look for yogurt (or kefir) that contains ‘live active cultures.’
7. STRESS-LESS. Our bodies respond to our emotions, to stress and upset, to feeling anxious or harassed and can manifest a cold, sore throat or more. Do create a space within yourself, within your physical environment (home or office) in which you can relax, calm down, take in a deep breath and let it go.
8. SHAKE IT! Exercise makes our body stronger, it increases the circulation of blood and nutrients, and it helps flush the body of toxins.
