OVERWEIGHT: Will It Kill You?

A new study led by researchers at Harvard School of Public Health reports that hundreds of thousands of deaths each year are due to diet and lifestyle.
Below are the numbers of annual deaths in the United States due to each of the individual risk factors examined, all of which are preventable. (Source: Harvard Science Foundation)
• Smoking: 467,000
• High blood pressure: 395,000
• Overweight-obesity: 216,000
• Inadequate physical activity and inactivity: 191,000
• High blood sugar: 190,000
• High LDL cholesterol: 113,000
• High dietary salt: 102,000
• Low dietary omega-3 fatty acids: 84,000
• High dietary trans-fatty acids: 82,000
• Alcohol use: 64,000 (alcohol use averted a balance of 26,000 deaths from heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, because moderate drinking reduces risk of these diseases. But these deaths were outweighed by 90,000 alcohol-related deaths from traffic and other injuries, violence, cancers, and a range of other diseases).
• Low intake of fruits and vegetables: 58,000
• Low dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids: 15,000
“The large magnitude of the numbers for many of these risks made us pause,” said Goodarz Danaei, a doctoral student at HSPH and the lead author of the study. “To have hundreds of thousands of premature deaths caused by these modifiable risk factors is shocking and should motivate a serious look at whether our public health system has sufficient capacity to implement interventions and whether it is currently focusing on the right set of interventions.” Majid Ezzati, associate professor of international health at HSPH, is the study’s senior author.

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!
Ceviche a la Our Lady of Weight Loss
Ingredients: 2 pounds tilapia fillets, cubed * 10 garlic cloves, chopped * 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped * 1 rocoto (Peruvian hot pepper) seeded and chopped * Salt n’ pepper to taste * Juice from 12-15 limes, freshly squeezed, strained. Enough to cover fish!!! * 1 red onion, thinly sliced and rinsed
Directions: Combine all ingredients except red onion and mix well. * Place red onion on top and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours before serving. * Before serving, mix well with slices of cold sweet potato and corn nuts.

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:
Kirstie Alley & Oprah: Stuck In a Fat Suit?
In the mood for more celebrity weight???
Kathy Ireland: Overweight. Overwhelmed.
Star Jones: Addict, Depressed and Honest.
