Miley Cyrus happy, healthy and pregnant?

The cyber-airwaves are humming this morning with “Is Miley Cyrus carrying Jonas Brothers, Nick’s love child?” rumors.
True or not, it brings to the forefront an important topic, “pregnancy weight,” and presents an opportunity to remember what one needs to do to stay healthy during pregnancy.
Healthy Reminders
First of all, no matter what the number says on the scales of injustice prior to your pregnancy, even if you are clinically obese, you must gain weight and eat well, because you are growing a new human being. Nutritionally deprived babies are smaller and can be sickly and sickly babies tend to need more hospital time, have a higher occurrence of problems and incidence of neonatal death.
Eating for Two
Remember that eating for two doesn’t mean that you need to eat twice as much. In fact, ingesting an additional 100 to 300 calories of nutrient dense foods instead of the ubiquitous high-fat, high-sugar junk foods is the way to go. Ditch the candy bars and bags of chips and reach for fruit!
Gain, How Much?
The rule of thumb is that women who are clinically obese should gain a minimum of 11 pounds, women who are average weight should gain 25-35 pounds and women who are underweight need to look at an average gain of 25-40 pounds.
Nevertheless, you may need to gain more or less, remembering that these are the averages. Therefore, you should definitely put this on your checklist of things to discuss with your health care provider.
BabyCenter.com has a fabulous pregnancy weight gain estimator. Just punch in your height and weight and it will tell you the amount of pounds you will gain and how it is distributed!

Diets don’t work: A kick in the tush does.

KICKOL-LOGO.jpgReconnecting with Your Motivation 101: Food for thought from Our Lady of Weight Loss, patron saint of permanent fat removal and Janice Taylor, Weight Loss Coach, Beliefnet.com
Motivation doesn’t always come easy, particularly when it involves habits and addictions. (Yes, I do believe that food can be an addiction.) Some of us need a bit of a kick in the tush to kick-start our healthy living regimes.
Here follows a mental-cise (something for you to ponder, think about and even write out in your Kick in the Tush Club notebooks) that will help you to change your mind.
“You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it.” ~ Albert Einstein
Instead of visualizing how your future will improve when you permanently remove those extra pounds, instead of concentrating on how fabulous you are going to look, please take a minute to …
Visualize a future where nothing changes, a future where no dreams have been pursued. No actions have been taken. What does that future look like, feel like? Are you experiencing a deep sense of regret or loss? Might you find the energy, the will, the drive, the motivation to move forward now?
What will it take to motivate you to change, to create the life you’ve always wanted?
Mind blowing sausage links!

Stop Overeating: Take Control

ART Stop.jpgIf cake is your BFF (best friend forever), if the call of Cheeto sends you into an orange-stained spin, if you start to drool at the mere mention of Cinnabon, and/or if you are mad at yourself for giving in and diving into a vat of chocolate, then pull up a chair and start clicking for an interview that just may change your relationship to food and, in turn, your life.
A MUST READ!
Read as Janice Taylor, weight loss coach, hypnotherapist, and author of All Is Forgiven, Move On interviews Dr. David Kessler, author of, The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite. Dr. Kessler was Commissioner of the FDA from 1990-1997 (under two administrations–one red, and one blue), and during that time he was responsible for putting a squeeze on the tobacco industry and reinventing the food label. Janice found him to be an authentic, caring human being who has battled the bulge himself and is a model teacher for how you can take control of your overeating.
Cracking the Overeating Code
JT: Dr. Kessler, you invested seven years of your life meeting with top scientists, physicians and food industry insiders, exploring and investigating just how we (Americans) have lost control of our eating habits. This research must be very important to you.
DK: Yes, very important on a number of levels. While watching Oprah, I heard a woman speak about her inability to control her eating, and the pain and frustration that accompanied her lack of control. I wondered, “What is going on? What’s driving this?”
And I related to her story. There’s almost nothing in my life that I do on impulse. But foods and the cues that surround them have the power to make me act against my own will. I wanted to understand how this works. I wanted to crack the code.

Eat This: Lose 50 pounds.

transformation soup cover2.jpgOur Lady of Weight Loss and I were thumbing through old recipes, looking for inspiration, when she remembered that I used to whip up huge batches of Gazpacho during my early weight loss days. Without a doubt, these recipes helped me to permanently remove over 50 pounds.
Whether you are grilling this coming July 4th / Independence Day weekend or not, make Gazpacho apart of your weekend plans. You know, so that you have something on hand that you can fill up on – that makes you all happy – that helps you to stay aligned with your goals.
Gazpacho is a cold, healthy, absolutely delightful, delicious and guilt-free Spanish soup that is popular in the summer months. It’s loaded with antioxidant rich foods that help burn fat!
Where is all began …
Its origins are from ancient Andalusia. At that time, Gazpacho was basically a mixture of stale bread, olive oil, garlic, salt and vinegar – a kind of cold bread soup.
Happy accident …
Tomatoes and bell peppers weren’t added until Christopher Columbus serendipitously stumbled upon these veggies, when he discovered America in 1492. He brought these brightly colored foods back to Europe with him, whereupon they were summarily tossed into cold salads. As Emeril would say, “Bam!”
Join with me as I whip up big batches of these fat-burning cold and refreshing summer soups!
Red Gazpacho
Ingredients: 15 oz. can diced tomatoes, in juice * 1/4 cup low-fat vegetable broth organic * 3 med. tomatoes, peeled, seeded & chopped * juice from fresh lemon * 2 cloves garlic, diced * pepper to taste * hot sauce to taste * 1 med. cucumber, peeled and finely chopped * 1 med. yellow bell pepper, finely chopped * 1/3 c. minced green onions *
Instructions: Combine first 7 ingredients in container of electric blender; process till smooth. Combine tomato mixture, chopped cucumber, yellow bell pepper, and green onions; chill thoroughly. To serve, ladle soup into chilled bowls.
White Gazpacho
