Kielbasa Stir Fry

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.

5 Ways to Cook Eggs

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.

July 4th Menu

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.

4th-of-july

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.

Manage Stress After Weight Loss Surgery

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.

Spaghetti Pie

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.

Reverse Muscle Loss With Strength Training

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.

Find the Support You Need for Weight Loss

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.

Build Your Perfect Home Gym

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.

What are the Different Types of Body Fat?

Body fat has a negative connotation, but fat plays an important role in your body. In fact, it has a number of benefits for health. The first purpose of fat is to store extra calories in a safe way so you can mobilize that energy when you’re hungry. Second, fat releases hormones that help control metabolism.

There are several types of fat each with a different function. Let’s take a look.
