  • Few mild-to-moderate Parkinson's disease patients suffer from malnutrition, yet almost one third are at risk

    Many factors could lead to poor nutrition in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients, including motor difficulties with swallowing and chewing (dysphagia), cutting, and bringing food to the mouth. PD-related constipation and depression can also dampen a patient's appetite and change dietary habits. A new report says that some of these patients are therefore at risk of malnutrition.
  • Breast milk reveals a correlation between dietary fats and academic success

    Nutrition Research News -- ScienceDaily
    11 Sep 2014 | 6:47 am
    You are what you eat, the saying goes, and now a study suggests that the oft-repeated adage applies not just to physical health, but to brain power as well. Researchers compared the fatty acid profiles of breast milk from women in over two dozen countries with how well children from those same countries performed on academic tests. Their findings show that the amount of omega-3 docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in a mother's milk is the strongest predictor of test performance. It outweighs national income and the number of dollars spent per pupil in schools.

    Last Tuesday morning, my inbox was flooded with emails about new research suggesting the Low Carb diet is the best diet for weight loss and cardiovascular health.  Last Tuesday afternoon, my inbox was flooded with emails about a different study suggesting that all diets are equal and there is no significant difference between them. Then my email (and my mind!) was flooded with – well, what is it? Low carb or low fat?? Of course this is an important topic for me considering I am a dietitian and discuss weight loss all day long…and I am working at Stanford University on the…

    14 Sep 2014 | 5:58 am
    By Krista Mahr and Fayaz Bukhari SRINAGAR, India (Reuters) - About 150,000 people were still stranded in their homes a week after Indian Kashmir's worst flood in over a century and fears grew on Sunday of an outbreak of diseases from vast fields of stagnant brown water. Indian army and civilian boats trawled through the streets -now water channels - of the state capital Srinagar – picking up residents and delivering water, food and basic medicine to people who chose to remain camped out in the upper floors of their houses. The state administration, which was itself knocked out after…

A week into the disaster, large parts of Srinagar, the capital of Jammu and Kashmir, lay under water with many people still trapped atop their homes, and others crowded in relief camps. Their misery has added to problems of the administration in a Muslim-majority region where a revolt against Indian rule has simmered for nearly a quarter…

    With school underway, kids are pulling out their iphones and ipads even more than ever. Many schools are incorporating some reading and homework apps using these mobile devices.

      After reading an article last month about an incredible medicinal plant whose uses predate written records, I thought I needed to share some of the information I had learned. The medicinal properties of neem (Azadiracthaindica) have been known in India for over 4,000 years, yet most people have never heard of it.  A member of the Mahogany family, Meliaceae, neem is native to India and India’s subcontinent regions. More than half of the world’s population still relies entirely on plants for medicines and neem is a great example of why they do so. This “jack of all trades”…

    A new study suggests that magnesium levels are vital to brain health as population ages. The nutritional research concluded that magnesium deficiency in adults may play a more important role in cognitive impairment (CI), and more seriously, Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), than previously thought. The results of the study suggest that elevation of brain magnesium through dietary intake of magnesium exerts substantial positive effects on brain, actually restoring aging brains to their youthful conditions. The study is the first to show a mechanism for reversing cognitive decline in advanced…

  • Breast milk reveals a correlation between dietary fats and academic success

    11 Sep 2014 | 6:47 am
    You are what you eat, the saying goes, and now a study suggests that the oft-repeated adage applies not just to physical health, but to brain power as well. Researchers compared the fatty acid profiles of breast milk from women in over two dozen countries with how well children from those same countries performed on academic tests. Their findings show that the amount of omega-3 docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in a mother's milk is the strongest predictor of test performance. It outweighs national income and the number of dollars spent per pupil in schools.
  • Fish, fatty acid consumption associated with lower risk of hearing loss in women

    10 Sep 2014 | 10:25 am
    Consumption of 2 or more servings of fish per week was associated with a lower risk of hearing loss in women, researchers have found. "Acquired hearing loss is a highly prevalent and often disabling chronic health condition," stated one corresponding author. "Although a decline in hearing is often considered an inevitable aspect of aging, the identification of several potentially modifiable risk factors has provided new insight into possibilities for prevention or delay of acquired hearing loss."
  • Fish oil may help curb seizure frequency in epilepsy

    8 Sep 2014 | 5:47 pm
    Low doses of fish oil may help to curb the frequency of epileptic seizures when drug treatment no longer works, suggests a small study. The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are able to cross over from the bloodstream into heart cells where they work to stabilize heart rhythm and protect against heart attacks. This is particularly important for people with epilepsy because they have a significantly high risk of having a heart attack.

    I’ve been having an affair. It’s sexy. It’s seductive. It makes me feel like I’m on top of the world. Time stops when I’m with “him”. I feel desired, dangerous, and daring. But as soon as the heat of the moment has passed – I realize what I’ve done. I’ve cheated on myself… again…with Food. I binge and then I crash. Everything I know melts away. Each time I feel more alone than I’ve ever felt before.    The guilt is just too much to bear. I said I’d never go back. I’ve ended things time… and time… and TIME again. When will I learn my lesson? “He” is…

    Where am I? Where is the rest of the team? Do they know I’m not with them? Oh, God, what am I even doing out here? These were some of the thoughts running through my mind as I attempted to run down the streets in the neighborhood behind my high school.  I’d always wanted to join a team, and the open-team policy of my small school inspired me to run cross country.  I had pictured making long, graceful strides as I made my way through drills and endurance runs. Reality hit me like a ton of bricks. I had never run a long distance before, and now I was lost and out-of-breath. Finding My…

    In summer, when our garden and CSA boxes overflow with an abundance of fresh vegetables, I lean on light, veggie-heavy lunches.  Among my favorite are free-form vegetable tarts, filled with roasted vegetables and artisan cheeses, and brightened with the lightest sprinkling of fresh herbs. Recently the folks at Ewetopia Dairy sent me a sample of their cheeses, and they’re extraordinary – rich and tart, creamy with faint briny notes, and mild, too.  When I tasted the cheeses, I knew at once that they belonged in a savory summer tart too, where the creamy notes would provide…

    Each autumn, my tiny mountain community celebrates the transition from summer to winter with abandon.  Perhaps here at the very end of the road where our little town sits nestled between the undulating folds of the Rocky Mountains, we live a little less removed from nature.   Those thin transitions between summer and autumn, autumn and winter seem a little more pronounced here where the people still depend on the seasons. As we brace ourselves for winter and what will amount to another nine months of snow, an odd sense of both dread and excitement pervade the sleepy community.  Yes, winter…

    In summertime, I crave simple, nourishing foods.  Fresh, and vibrant and blessedly easy to prepare.  And while in wintertime, I favor hardy stews and roasts, in summer I want for something decidedly lighter. Lately, I’ve leaned heavily on socca, a thin flatbread traditionally served in the south of France (it goes by the name farinata in Italy).  Like the best of foods, socca is wonderfully simple to prepare and contains only a handful of uncomplicated, nourishing ingredients: chickpea flour, olive oil, salt and water. Its light, but nutty flavor, pairs well with the robust flavors…

It’s here that the work of the very vocal farmer, and that of his family, has led to a rumbling of revolution, and hope for sustainable agriculture and small farms. I visit Polyface each year, in September, in support of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, a nonprofit organization devoted to protecting the rights of small farms from government overreach.  You might recognize their work on…

    This past January, I was sick. I had migratory joint pain and it was scary. The question I get often is, how did I know what was happening. The answer — by traditional medicine guidelines — is not clear cut. I didn’t get a diagnosis. I tried. I went to the doctor, told her what […]

  • Three mind blowing facts about Lyme Disease

    Andrea
    17 Jun 2014 | 9:51 am
    Most people believe that Lyme is transmitted by ticks that you can only get when you go hiking, that if you get bitten by one of those ticks, a bull's eye rash forms and if that happens then you should get tested. But what if there's a bite but no bull's eye rash? What if you do get tested, but the results are inaccurate? What if no obvious symptoms are experienced immediately? Not only are all those possibilities likely, they are the rule rather than the exception. More importantly, deer ticks are not the exclusive carriers of the Borrelia spirochete, which transmits Lyme. Cases have been…

    8 Sep 2014 | 9:57 am
    We eat to feel good in a variety of ways. Feeling good may mean getting rid of hunger, feeling energized, providing our body with nutrients, or in some cases providing comfort. Food is a part of many situations and we are often surrounded by choices and opportunities to nibble on something. Many emotions are also tied to food, whether it is a happy memory, a celebratory event, or a way to console ourselves. When we seek food for more than nourishment and sustenance, we may never feel satisfied/fulfilled.With mindfulness, moderation, and minimalism in mind, it's good to create awareness and…

    I enjoy situations that cause me to be creative and find new ways to use ingredients. This year that inspiration has come from our CSA PayDirt farms. We have received 4 deliveries of locally grown, organic produce so far this year and I have whipped up a variety of new dishes in the kitchen to enjoy the fresh ingredients. We split a share with my brother-in-law and his fiance since we both only have 2 mouths to feed and want to make sure we're able to use everything up. These situations challenge me, because like most people I have my go to items from the grocery store. I do try to combine…

By her own admission, a thick, juicy steak In interviews prior to the release of her film Salt, Jolie says that she was vegan for a long time and that it “nearly killed” her. “I found that I was not getting enough nutrition,” says Jolie. Thankfully, Jolie wised up in time before her health and teeth were irreparably damaged. Many vegans are not as lucky. The fact is that some of the most critical nutrients for health, vitamins A, D,and B12 are simply not found in an exclusively plant based diet. Vegans cite beta…

    It is very disturbing that most conventional dentists still insist that a cavity cannot heal on its own when proper nutritional support is provided and detrimental foods to oral health removed from the diet. The very textbooks in dental school indicate that this is possible! Here is an excerpt: “It has been shown experimentally and clinically that incipient caries [small cavities] of enamel can remineralize.” – Sturdevant’s Art & Science of Operative Dentistry 4th Edition, 2002.

    I love cooking with tempeh. It’s such a delicious and healthy way to add texture to a dish and it’s very filling and satisfying. Soy food sometimes get a bad rep in natural health circles. I get it, there’s a lot of debate regarding whether soy is safe to eat. I tend to lean toward the organic, non-GMO, and fermented side of soy. Tempeh is fermented soy, which means the carbohydrates in the soy have been broken down by mold, yeast or bacteria. This fermentation process transforms the proteins in soy, making them more digestible. It also increases the availability of…

Since my book has been out I’ve been answering a lot of questions about juicing, so I thought I would also share a few tips on juicing and juicers. The very first thing I want to clear up (and what I get the most questions about) is the difference between juicing and blending. I explain this in my book, but let me break it down for you here, too. Simply put, juicing requires the use of a juicer. A juicer, unlike a blender, works by extracting the liquid part of fruit or…

Leaving my French braid, side ponytail, or occasional half-up, half-down look to become unraveled. Throughout grade school, I was teased. I was somewhat chunky and just did my own thing. The teasing never bothered me, odd enough. In middle school and early high school, my “care-free, I-like-me attitude,” attracted friends. And as always, I was happy with who I was and what I looked like. It wasn’t until later in high school and a bit into college that I become more…

  • Plus Size Fitness

    15 Aug 2014 | 9:49 am
    There was a time when Plus Size women felt uncomfortable going to the gym because of all the people that would judge them. Plus Size women are no longer hiding under sweatshirts and sweat pants. As a plus sized woman, I find I tailor my work out to my size. For example: instead of running, I speed walk to protect my knees. When I do sit ups, I do them on a yoga ball instead of the ground for proper back support. What are your tips for Plus Size workouts?

    14 Aug 2014 | 9:40 am
    I remember growing up, a "big butt" was not something we strived for. I often heard women say they needed to lose weight because their butt was getting big. Now in 2014 I see a growing trend of women that would like larger backsides. When I go to the gym, you see less women on the treadmill and more doing squats to get a toned more defined booty. What are your thoughts? Do squats truly help?

Often times, our homes become a dumping ground for all the things collected over time.  The same can be said for our bodies. Over the years, we may have become less active or let life’s responsibilities get in the way of our health and the pounds may have packed on.     Before you start your home spring cleaning, do you have a plan?  I am sure you do! So  why not implement the same with your body and life.  Take time to…

What is the verdict?” Well I gotta say the jury is still out…I myself cannot wait to see the results. What I am very certain of is “the right diet” for you is not just what makes you get to a specific “ideal” weight. There is a lot to the story…what does your blood say? How is your energy?

    I got back from Burning Man a week ago. I’ve taken the week to decompress in San Diego and gather my thoughts about it so I could write this recap for you guys. I stayed totally sober from all drugs and alcohol the whole time. I even stayed away from all sugar and caffeine too. (I’m extreme)! When I said I was going to Burning Man, a lot of people said “Isn’t it just a huge party with a ton of drugs? Why are you going? Doesn’t sound like your thing.” But I knew there was more to it.

    Are you a football fan? If you are – or perhaps live and/or work with one — you’d better be prepared to wear your loosest pants the day after your (or their) favorite team loses. Put another way, you better hope your football team won (for more reasons than one) or chances are you’ll be joining your fellow fans rummaging around the kitchen later that day — or have the pizza place on speed dial. No joke! According to a study published in Psychological Science, on the Monday after a big football game fans of the losing team like to load up on sugar and saturated fat. Fans of…

    Do you get so hungry mid-morning or mid-afternoon that you grab whatever you can from a cart, vending machine, the snack room or fridge — and chow down? if you do, you’re not alone. According to research, snacking, including drinking beverages at times other than during a regular meal,accounts for more than 25% of Americans’ calorie intake everyday. Snacking has turned into “a full eating event,” or a fourth meal, averaging about 580 calories each day. Eating while you’re doing something else, called secondary eating, has also increased.  Between 2006 and 2008, the…

    via TCBY Is frozen yogurt actually healthy or are you being hoodwinked by “yogurt” in the name? What’s In Frozen Yogurt? Milk and milk by-products are the main ingredients in frozen yogurt. Frozen yogurt companies have their own recipes, but most common frozen yogurts contain yogurt cultures, sweetener, corn syrup, milk solids, gelatin, flavoring, and coloring. Sugar makes up 15-17% of frozen yogurt and adds flavor, body, and thickness. If you’re thinking healthy bacteria and frozen yogurt, you need to check the brand.

Look for blue and yellow striped Sabrett umbrellas (sometimes green and white, per regulation, in NYC parks).There seem to be a lot of foodtrucks with blue and yellow Sabrett umbrellas, but you can still find plenty of pushcart vendors hawking frankfurters – even if some of them are now cooked on grills rather than plucked out of pots of warm (“dirty”) water.

What happens?  You eat the skimpy portion – decide you’re still hungry – and then go back, maybe two or three times, for more. And if you keep the serving dishes on the table right in front of you, it’s way too easy to keep refilling your plate – or just stick your fork out and eat from the platter.

    Not all fats are created equal. Some of them are simply used for energy, while others have powerful health effects. CLA (short for “Conjugated Linoleic Acid”) is a fatty acid that belongs to the latter group (1). It is found naturally in beef and dairy, and has been shown to cause fat loss in many […] The post CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid): A Detailed Review appeared first on http://authoritynutrition.com/ [ This is only a summary.

    People are fatter and sicker than ever before. Obesity rates have tripled since 1980 and have increased particularly fast in children. The reason why this has happened is still debated among scientists, but it must be due to changes in the environment because our genes don’t change this quickly.

  • Mediterranean Veggie Burgers with Sweet Potato, Red Lentils, and Quinoa

    Kelly Toups
    10 Sep 2014 | 6:36 pm
    This recipe is a close adaptation of Martha Rose Shulman’s recipe for the New York Times. I actually had the pleasure of meeting her last week (#starstruck), because she’s moderating a panel at an upcoming conference that my company is hosting. Our lunch meeting was catered by SweetGreen, so basically it was an all-around perfect day. In my version of the recipe, I decided to lighten things up a little bit and bake the patties, rather than coating in breadcrumbs and pan frying them. Shulman recommends serving the patties with raita, chutney, or a garlic mint yogurt sauce, but I…
  • Finally… a healthier granola!

    2 Sep 2014 | 5:40 pm
    The word “granola” has become synonymous with a health conscious lifestyle, and is often used to describe individuals that have an aversion to processed foods and a soft spot for REI. Despite the healthful moniker, this popular snack is often riddled with as much added sugar as children’s breakfast cereal, and the oils used to roast the oats can multiply calories quickly. So much for being a health food. Sure, granola is a satisfying source of fiber and whole grains. But the dessert-high levels of sugar have kept granola from being a pantry staple at my house. Until now. Yes, I could…

    What good are food stamps doing to nourish the hungry if participants spend it all on junk food? This is a common critique of nutrition assistance programs, and for a good reason. That being said, many hunger advocates counter that today’s hungry often live in communities where fresh, healthy foods aren’t available, and that tightening the nutrition criteria for these assistance programs will leave participants with nowhere to turn. After all, a little bit of junk food is better than no food at all. However, a recent study in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior demonstrates…
  • Root: Vegan Food for Carnivorous Palates

    It’s refreshing to come across a menu that doesn’t use cheese as a crutch for vegetarian meals. At Root, a vegan restaurant, that’s not even an option. Tostada: Crispy corn tortillas topped with chili-spiced sweet potatoes, black bean and corn salsa, avocado, and (tofu based) crema, served with greens If you have visions of rubbery “veggie meats” and endless tofu dishes, think again.

It's big business too, with so many boutique and 'brand' name diets available.A new study set out to strip down the evidence and see what was left underneath.

Against the infiltration of commercial interests into every last cranny of our lives. To cook for the pleasure of it, to devote a portion of our leisure to it, is to declare our independence from the corporations seeking to organize our every waking moment into yet another occasion for consumption. It is to reject the debilitating notion that, at least while we’re at home, production is work best done by someone else,…

    Self-control is an often overlooked concept in the “healthy eating industry”. Most known blogs have already adopted the mentality that sometimes, giving advice on what someone should eat is simply not enough as a viable solution in the long run. We come in all sizes and shapes, and this holds true for our personalities as well. Some people just have worse self-control that others.
