Dr Musante's book is about change. Not just change in
your weight—losing the pounds you want to lose. He says weight loss is important, but
it's not really the change that is most important. Rather, The Structure House
Weigh Loss Plan focuses on changing yourself in deeper, more significant, more
durable ways than what you can measure simply by standing on your bathroom
scale. He talks about changing how you view yourself. Changing your
relationship with food. Changing your choices about how to live your life.
Changing your attitude about change itself.
We led the show off with Dr Lisa Young, author of the Portion Teller and the Portion Teller Plan.
Dr Young is a nationally recognized nutrition consultant and faculty member at New York University. Dr. Young has been counseling adults and children for more than 15 years, has published numerous articles on portion sizes, and frequently lectures on nutrition. Widely considered an expert on portion control, Young is regularly featured in national publications including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, Newsweek, Self, Fitness, and Glamour. She has also been featured on national television including the Today Show, ABC News, CBS News, and CNN, and was in the film Super Size Me.
The Portion Teller Plan will teach you how to understand
portion sizes so that you can lose weight and stop dieting, no matter what your
portion personality might be. Are you a mindless muncher who snacks all day, a
dinner lover who enjoys one big meal a day, or maybe a volume eater who always
wants to sit down with a huge plate of food at every meal? No matter what your
eating habits, The Portion Teller Plan offers a personalized eating plan that
is right for you.
Instead of giving up the foods you love, learn to smartsize
them with the help of one of the country’s leading nutritionists. Would
you ever consider going to the kitchen in the morning and grabbing five slices
of bread for breakfast? No? Just one bagel or perhaps a bran muffin is more like
it, right? Well, think again. Your morning bagel or muffin is probably
equivalent to eating five slices of bread, maybe more. That’s most of your
grain servings for the day. And, that steak you ate last night? For all
the calories and protein you consumed, you might as well have eaten 18 eggs.
More than double the amount of protein you need in a day.
just how much you are eating? Dr. Lisa Young isn’t. She has been studying how
Americans eat for more than a decade, and what she found is astonishing.
Portion sizes have subtly and steadily increased over the past thirty years and
are now two to five times larger than they were in the past. Even the average
dinner plate has grown several inches to accommodate more food. The portions
we’re served are getting bigger and we keep eating. The end result? That’s
right. Americans are getting fatter. For more information about Dr Young and her books please go to her website www.portionteller.com
Next up we had our good friend Nicci Micco, Senior Editor with Eating Well magazine. We thanked her profusely for helping Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy become Editor's Picks in this month's issue of the magazine.
Nicci talked about an important article in her magazine titled "10 Steps to Heart Health" She says that you can change your fate just by Eating Well.
1- Know your numbers; 2-Calculate your risk; 3-Lose some weight; 4-less saturated fats; 5-lose the junk food. You'll have to listen to get the rest or go to their website for more information www.eatingwell.com. You can get Dr Ades' book there as well.
Next we had on Evelyn Tribole, author of the book Intuitive Eating.
Evelyn Tribole, MS,
RD, is an award-winning dietitian with a counseling practice in
Intuitive eating is an approach that teaches you how
to create a healthy relationship with your food, mind, and
body--where you ultimately become the expert of your own
body. You learn how to distinguish between physical and
emotional feelings, and gain a sense of body wisdom. It's also a
process of making peace with food---so that you no longer have constant
"food worry" thoughts. It's knowing that your health and your
worth as a person does not change because you ate a so-called "bad"
or "fattening" food.
Amazingly the Fat Guy is being followed by over 3 dozen
people who are interested in what he eats each day. Who would have
thought? Anyone can follow the Fat Guy's eating exploits on
Twitter. Food journals are great ways to lose weight and the Fat Guy is
always trying anything in order to lose those last 20 pounds. So take a peek
into his food diary. You never know what he'll write. Somehow he can stay
compliant to writing on Twitter but he can't fit in exercise each day. That's
right, moments after he eats something the Fat Guy Twitters about it and you
can follow him so that one day if you try real hard you too can look like the
Fat Guy. Please go to www.twitter.com/fatguy
