You Are What You Drink

Not all calories are the same, especially when it comes to the calories you drink.  Most people tend to resolve their diet plans around the foods they consume, often forgetting that what they drink on a daily basis is just as important.  Countless drinks on the market tend to be very high in sugar content, which we all know eventually turns into fat, derailing our weight-loss goals.

Some drinks are also loaded with tons of calories that often can be just as high as an entire meal.  Learning what drinks to watch out for and which ones to consume can make a big difference in your overall weight and health.  Let's take a look at a few healthy options that can help you meet your long-term goals.

When it comes to finding the perfect drink to complement your healthy eating goals, the number-one thing you need is just five letters: water!

Water is a basic beverage that provides essential benefits like helping to digest your food properly and hydrating the body, but most importantly, it contains zero calories.

How much water should you drink, and when?  When it comes to water, you should drink approximately 2 quarts (8 cups) of water a day.  Most of your body (approximately 65 percent) is composed of water.  Water is the most important power nutrient; without enough water, nutrients like carbs, proteins and fats can't get into your body's cells.  Water helps your body work optimally and should be considered the drink of choice when pursuing long-term weight-loss goals.

What's an easy way to get your daily water intake and start the day off right?  Down to 8-ounce glasses of water upon waking to rehydrate, boost circulation, and jump-start your metabolism.  Drinking water 30 minutes before a meal can help prepare the digestive system to fully absorb nutrients that will be provided in your food.  Then, wait to drink water until 30 minutes after your meal to allow for full digestion.

Drinking water sounds easy, but what happens when the basic drink doesn't satisfy your taste buds?  Try adding excitement to your water with cucumber, mint, a slice of lemon or orange, or even cherries when in season.  Here's an exclusive H2O pick-me-up recipe: Whip up some refreshing minty lemon cucumber water.  Add 2 quarts water, one sliced lemon, half a sliced cucumber, and mint sprigs to a glass pitcher.  Let steep in the fridge for 30 minutes.  Serve over ice and enjoy!

If you can't do water all the time, here are a few other options to consider.  Try coconut water instead of sugar-based flavored water drinks.  Coconut water is advertised as "fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-calorie, super-hydrating, naturally rich in electrolytes."  It is a healthy option when you need a boost of energy.  On occasion, coconut water may be a beneficial choice due to its naturally high levels of potassium.  Watch serving sizes, as most have about 50 calories per serving.  Note: Most research shows that it shouldn't replace sports drinks for very active individuals, in whom higher levels of sodium are important.

Another great healthy choice when it comes to beverages is flavored tea.  If you need to sweeten your tea, try adding a teaspoon of Stevia, a no-calorie sweetener that comes from an herb native to South Africa.  Another great choice is agave syrup (also use 1 teaspoon.)
 
When considering beverages, it is essential to always read the nutritional facts just like you would with food.  The first ingredient listed is the most common ingredient; the least common ingredient is listed last.  Your drink should be mostly water or 100 percent juice, depending on the beverage.  If you see sugar first on the label, watch out!

Raise Your Hand If You Have Back Pain

As adults, we get used to a variety of daily or near-daily aches and pains, particularly as we age.  But what about our children? Don't they seem immune to many, if not all, of the pain complaints we have - despite the fact that for the most part, they're exponentially more active?

Maybe not.  A study
of school children ages 12-15 revealed a startling statistic:  More than half (57 percent) reported experiencing back pain in the past year.  As you might expect, "remaining seated at school" was a primary pain trigger, particularly for back pain lasting up to seven days.

These findings not only point to the university of back pain - and the need for it to be addressed by qualified health care professionals such as doctors of chiropractic; but also the need to recognize and avoid situations that may increase the risk of experiencing and episode of back pain. For example, evidence implicates ergonomic flaws both in the school and workplace (desk / chair height, etc.) in back pain, not to mention carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain and other conditions.  What's more, the act of sitting alone creates undue stress on the spinal column and encourages poor posture whether at school, work or home, a major initiator of back pain ad related conditions.

If anyone in  your family is suffering from back pain, do something about it.  Talk to your doctor about the potential causes and solutions.

Don't Just Sit There...

The longer you sit - in your car, in front of the TV, reading, at the computer, or elsewhere - the greater your risk of dying.

Using questionnaires, researchers at the American Cancer Society tracked roughly 53,000 men and 70,000 women for 14 years.

Women who said that they sat for at least six hours a day - not counting time spent sitting at work - were 34% more likely to die over the 14-year period (mostly from heart disease or stroke) than those who sat for less than three hours a day.  Men who sat for at least six hours were 17% more likely to die.  And that was true even for people who exercised regularly.

The least-active people had the highest risk of dying.  Women who did the least exercise (like brisk walking) and who sat for at least six hours a day during their leisure time were almost twice as likely to die as those who did the most exercise and who sat for less than three hours a day.  Men who did the least exercise and sat for at least six hours a day were 1 1/2 times more likely to die.

What to do: Get up and move around, even if it's just to get a drink of water, stretch, or clean up the kitchen. Going for a brisk walk, a bike ride, a swim, or doing other aerobic activity can keep you healthy, even if it doesn't completely undo the damage caused by sitting for hours on end.

Mid-Day Breaks: Refuel & Re-Energize
 
Daily routine can often get the best of us.  Between getting ready for the full day ahead, carpooling the children's school drop off, and getting to work on time, it often feels like you've already completed a day's worth of activities all before your morning coffee.

Even though the day can get ahead of us, it's important to remember to take proper breaks throughout to maintain productivity and decrease stress levels. Taking a mid-day break helps to refuel and re-energize, giving you that extra oomph needed to get through the rest of the work day.  Here are some simple things you can do throughout your day to help renew your energy.

Lunchtime strolls
Shake it up and go for a walk during your lunch.  A simple dose of fresh air can help boost your energy, clear your mind, and help you refocus.  After all, studies show that lunchtime walks can "perceptibly - and immediately - buoy people's moods and ability to handle stress at work."

Exercise
Whether it be for 3 minutes or a half hour, exercising in the middle of your day will not only get rid of those midday blues but can help keep you active, along with all the other added health benefits working out gives us.

Eat
Putting the right nutrients into your body pays off for your mind as well! Eating a balanced meal gives your body the fuel it needs to keep your energy up and decreases fatigue.

By implementing any of these simple tips throughout your day, you will have the energy to tackle your daily tasks.

A Good Pillow

A good pillow for sleeping should be comfortable to lay your head upon, but most importantly it must support your neck keeping it in alignment with the rest of your spine.  There are many different pillows on the market today from traditional feather and fiber ones to shaped pillows, memory foam and buckwheat pillows.  It can be difficult to know what to choose.

There is no one "best" pillow for everyone.  Try these tips to pick the pillow that's right for you.

Choose a size of pillow suitable for your body size or frame.  The pillow should cover the entire back of your neck to avoid putting pressure on your spine.

Try out the pillow.  Most pillows are packaged in a plastic wrapper so you can lay it on a display bed in the store and put your head on it.  This is the best way to find out if you are on the right track.

A hypoallergenic pillow is a must if you suffer from allergies, but it is also a good choice for anyone.

Buckwheat filled pillows have become increasingly popular.  Buckwheat is hypoallergenic, it will mold to the contours of your head and neck providing good support, but it will also change shape when you move.

A good quality, supportive pillow provides many benefits including a better night's sleep, improved circulation, fewer aches and pains and even reduced snoring.  Take your time and choose carefully.  Your neck and back will thank you for it!
