It seems that more people are looking to add protein to their diets. Whether it’s eating energy bars, sprinkling powder into smoothies or downing “recovery drinks,” protein is a dieting buzz word. But, is extra protein necessary? Is the high-protein trend a passing phase?
After weight loss surgery, you’ll work with a WeightWise dietitian who will help you make sense of your protein requirements. Getting adequate, good-quality protein is essential for health. In most cases, a diet of whole foods will provide you with the nutrients you need.
I am a huge fan of a good dinner that only requires one skillet. Less dishes = happier me. What is even better is the time and effort required to make this Kielbasa Stir Fry. You might even get a longer workout in tonight with the time you save cooking and cleaning up.
Kielbasa Stir Fry
Pair this kielbasa stir fry recipe with cauliflower fried rice for a great dinner meal.
Eggs are a great source of proteins, vitamins, and healthy fats. They’re also inexpensive, easy to prepare and can help you feel full and satisfied. But, eggs can get boring if you prepare them in the same way every day. You probably have one of two ways of cooking eggs, but don’t limit yourself to the familiar.
Are you new to eating low carb? Have you been doing it awhile? Even if you are an old hand at a low carb eating style, holidays can be tricky. The stress and pressure of being around big groups of family or friends can get you off track quickly. Especially if you do not have a plan going into that holiday or weekend.
The 4th of July is a common holiday for cookouts, barbecues, or time at the lake. But these events do not mean that you have to eat whatever is available. The dietitians at WeightWise have compiled a list of their favorite cookout recipes for you to incorporate into your holiday weekend.
There are stacks of papers everywhere, voicemails to return, meal planning that needs to happen, and the house is a mess. Sound familiar? Life gets busy and sometimes there isn’t enough time in the day to do all that needs to be done.
Your mind and your body are being pulled in every direction, and this is where stress creeps in. Stress is very hard on your body if it continues day in and day out. You’ll likely feel emotional and on-edge. You’ll put your body’s immune system at risk for viruses, and if it’s severe enough, it could cause pressure on your heart muscles.
Italian food tops my favorite foods list. But it is not necessarily one of the healthier foods to love. So what do I do when a pasta craving strikes?! Well in a perfect world, I would be able to go to my favorite Italian restaurant and order a big plate of fettuccine alfredo and not gain an ounce or feel the affects of pasta cravings for days. But alas, this world is not perfect, nor am I. So I must make lemonade out of lemons- eeerrr or maybe spaghetti pie out of spaghetti squash is a more fitting analogy? Anyway, that’s what we are doing today. Spaghetti Pie from spaghetti squash. So pretty and so very delicious.
From birth to around age 30, we gain muscle. During our third decade, we gradually begin to lose what our youthful selves built. While this loss is a natural part of aging, everyone has the power to slow the erosion of muscle mass. Inactive people lose muscle quickly. Those who strength train can slow or even delay the loss of strength.
If you don’t do any weight training, you’ll lose as much as 5 percent of your muscle mass every decade after the age of 30. While no one can escape growing older, we can all work on staying strong and slowing the loss of muscle.
Weight loss surgery will change your life. It’s a tool that gives you the power to succeed in losing weight. The surgery, however, is just the beginning. Unfortunately, it can’t magically transform you overnight. To lose weight, you’ll need support, determination and follow-up care.
For some, the journey to health is long and arduous. A key to permanent weight loss is asking for help when you need it. Everyone needs support from friends, family and healthcare professionals. Whether you’ve had surgery or are pursuing a nonsurgical approach to weight loss, help is all around you.
Gastric bypass, gastric sleeve and other weight loss surgeries are well known. But most people are still surprised at all the changes that are in store for them after surgery.
Weight loss surgery will change your weight, your health, your energy levels and more. Here are some of the effects you can expect once you recover from weight loss surgery.
Now that you’ve had weight loss surgery, it’s time to establish a regular fitness routine to keep the weight from creeping back on. Gym memberships can be expensive and many times they go unused because, after a long day at the office, spending some time on your couch seems more appealing than going to a crowded gym.
Having a home gym can be a great alternative. Here are some at-home exercises as well as some equipment that should prove helpful in building your perfect home gym.
