Nutrition and Food Engineering / 18 Foods that Boost Your Metabolism

                                         18 Foods that Boost Your Metabolism

How much protein do you need? New research suggests that many of us may need more protein than we realize. The current RDA is 0.8 g of protein per kilogram of body weight, but several studies have found that 1 to 1.2 g may be more protective against age-related muscle loss.

Use this formula from Caroline Apovian, MD, to determine the minimum amount of protein you should eat daily to offset muscle loss--and protect your metabolism--while you lose weight.

STEP 1 Estimate your ideal weight. "If you're a woman, start with 100 pounds for the first 5 feet in height, and add 5 pounds for every extra inch," says Dr. Apovian. "For men, it's 106 pounds for 5 feet in height, plus 6 pounds for every additional inch. However, if your ideal weight is less than 120 pounds, don't eat less than 82 g of protein daily."

STEP 2 Ideal Weight (in lb) ÷ 2.2 = Ideal Weight (in kg)

STEP 3 Ideal Weight (in kg) × 1.5 = Daily Protein Goal (in g)

Now that you know how much you need, check out these metabolism-boosting protein-packed foods!

Written by Jenna Bergen, Prevention

  Ball games, barbecues, and boardwalks all share one very tasty link - the hot dog. Although it's about as iconic as a food can get in this country, the wiener's origin remains surprisingly unclear. On one point, however, we're all in agreement: On a summer afternoon, it's perfect washed down with a glass of something bubbly and ice-cold.

Yet there are lots of ways to prepare this most crowd-pleasing of treats - and just as many experts out there who are elevating the art of the dog. To start, there's the choice of the meat itself, then the cooking method (grilling, boiling, deep-frying), the matter of what to put on top (salty, sweet, cheesy), and how to handle the bun (toasted, soft, handmade). To help us assess the options and learn how to create the perfect hot dog at home - after all, most of us don't have access to equipment more advanced than a stovetop or a barbecue - we checked in with masters Randy Watts of Nathan's Famous, Hot Doug's Doug Sohn in Chicago, and Gloria Pink of Pink's in Hollywood, to name just a few.

Grilling was the most popular method of cooking on the East Coast, with steaming and boiling coming out on top in the Midwest - but otherwise the tips and tricks were unpredictable, even surprising. Why? Because, ultimately, it all comes down to taste buds - whether you like biting into a charred dog dressed with a single strand of handmade Dijon mustard or a deep-fried version heaped with a mess of coleslaw that spills down your chin. Dig in.

A Buttery Finish

This one's a personal call, but Joshua Sharkey likes to finish his hot dogs with "Bark butter," which is "basically smoked lard." Explains Sharkey: We take back fat from pigs, whip it with butter and sea salt, and baste the dogs in the mixture right before they come off the griddle.

Toasty Buns

Many cooks insist that the bun - whether it's store-bought or handmade - has to be toasted to give the simple creation a multi-note texture. Happily, it's an easy process. Just brush the bun with melted butter and pop it into a hot oven at 350 degrees or on the grill for a few minutes until it's a light golden hue - anything darker, warns Sharkey, means the bun is too dry. Detractors from this method? Those at Pink's, where buns are steamed using industrial equipment. At home, Pink says, you can achieve a similar effect just by sticking it in the microwave for 20 seconds until it's warm and soft.

The Art of Toppings

Prove your personality in a way that'll keep guests talking until next year's backyard bash. There are endless options, but Sharkey says that a general rule of thumb is that your topping should be overseasoned lest it be overpowered by the bun and meat. "Anything with acidity, sweetness, or heat works well. I really love pepper relish, which exudes a savory bitterness. I'm from the South, so I love coleslaw, too." The folks over at Nathan's go for mustard, sauerkraut, and pickle relish; plus ketchup, for the kids. Pierce, meanwhile, is partial to Cheddar and jalapeño. And Pink's legendary chili dog layers its ingredients just-so: two slices of American cheese draped on the bun, topped by chopped onions, then doused in chili. Other notables: guacamole with chopped tomatoes, grilled mushrooms and Swiss cheese, and nacho cheese.

Get Stuffed (or Wrapped)

Or both - especially if you believe more is more. Cut a slit in your dog about three-quarters of the way through, leaving at least half an inch on both ends to avoid complete splitting. Wedge the cheese of your choice - Cheddar, Swiss, and American are tried-and-true options - then wrap the whole thing in a slice of bacon, using a toothpick or two to secure it in place. Grill the compact creation over indirect heat for about 20 minutes, rotating it about every five or so, until the bacon is crisp.

Savor Slowly

For all of the time and effort that goes into making a gourmet dog, the sad truth is that they disappear in just a few chomps. So be sure to breathe between bites, and, in the words of Watts, "Always take one bite of a hot dog to enjoy the natural flavor before adding the toppings."

Nutrition and Food Engineering / 15 Healthy Food Combinations
« on: July 11, 2013, 10:39:55 AM »
Healthy eating is all about math: subtracting fat, counting calories, dividing portions. But let's not forget adding: It's the little things we toss in the pot that often yield the biggest benefits. "Adding just one food to another can make a tremendous difference in your total nutrient intake and offer significant health gains," says Tara Gidus, RD, a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association.

With benefits ranging from stronger bones and better eyesight to a healthier heart and improved immunity, here are 15 of our favorite quick pairings for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks--even beverages--that taste great, take seconds to make, and add up to amazing health.

Scrambled eggs + red peppers
The benefit: Smoother skin
Tossing in 1/2 cup of chopped red peppers delivers more than 100% of your daily vitamin C needs--which spells good news for your skin. Researchers in the United Kingdom looked at vitamin C intake in 4,025 women and found that those who ate more vitamin C had less wrinkling and dryness.

PLUS: These 6 Anti-Aging Foods will take 10 years off your face.

Smoothie (any kind) + wheat germ
The benefit: Heals cuts and bruises
 One-quarter cup of wheat germ packs nearly half of your day's requirements for zinc, an essential mineral that helps repair cells and strengthens the immune system. Even a slight deficiency can reduce your immunity, making it harder to heal.

Sandwich (any kind) + spinach
The benefit: Reduces night blindness
 Stacking only three small leaves of spinach on your sandwich satisfies at least 20% of your day's vitamin A requirements. Vitamin A helps you see in the dark, but it also protects your eyes from age-related macular degeneration, which can lead to vision loss.

Garden salad + canned wild salmon
The benefit: Improves brain and heart health
Adding 3 ounces of canned wild salmon to your salad provides half of the weekly recommendation for healthy omega-3 fats. The fatty acids found in canned salmon are linked with improvements in heart and brain health. Choosing wild lowers your exposure to dioxin, which is a cancer-causing contaminant found in the feed given to the farm-raised variety, says Evelyn Tribole, RD, author of The Ultimate Omega-3 Diet.

Stir-fry (any kind) + kale
The benefit: Strengthens eyes
 One-half cup of kale delivers at least 12 mg of lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids found in dark leafy greens that help combat cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Results from the Eye Disease Case Control Study found that people who ate the most of these nutrients--as much as 5.8 mg a day--had a significantly lower risk of AMD than those who ate the least. Stir-fry is the perfect way to throw it into the mix; if you're not a kale fan, other leafy greens such as Swiss chard and spinach offer similar benefits.

Salsa + chickpeas
The benefit: Helps you lose weight
Adding chickpeas to a light dip like salsa adds bulk without lots of calories and boosts your intake of protein, so you fill up faster and feel fuller. Plus, eating chickpeas regularly may also improve your overall food choices. An Australian study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that people who ate 1/2 cup of chickpeas a day weighed a pound less and ate less food overall.

PLUS: 25 Best Diet Tips of All Time

Low-fat pudding + nonfat powdered milk
The benefit: Eases PMS symptoms
Sprinkling 1/3 cup of nonfat powdered milk into pudding satisfies 40% of your day's calcium and 50 to 100% of your vitamin D requirements, depending on your age. Research shows that the combination of calcium and vitamin D reduces the risk of developing PMS.

 Water + unsweetened cranberry juice
The benefit: Cuts down on cavities
 Unsweetened cranberry juice prevents the buildup of Streptococcus mutans, the bacteria behind most cavities, by preventing them from sticking to the tooth's surface. The unsweetened juice also interferes with plaque formation. Mixing it with water helps dilute the juice's tartness.

Nonfat Greek yogurt + strawberries
The benefit: Maintains more muscles
Greek yogurt packs twice the protein of ordinary yogurt, and protein is essential for building, repairing, and maintaining muscles, which burn more calories than fat. Strawberries add a burst of natural sweetness.

Pasta (any kind) + parsley
The benefit: Builds stonger bones
Topping a pasta dish with just six sprigs of parsley offers a fresh boost of flavor and delivers a full day's supply of vitamin K, says Marisa Moore, RD, an Atlanta-based nutritionist and ADA spokesperson. Vitamin K is important for bone health--studies show that it helps prevent fractures and may guard against bone loss.

 Soup (any kind) + pinto beans
The benefit: Lowers cholesterol
 Adding 1/2 cup of beans to soup lowers both total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol--the unhealthy kind that contributes to the buildup of arterial plaque--according to researchers at Arizona State University Polytechnic. They found that people who ate 1/2 cup of pinto beans a day lowered both their total and LDL cholesterol by about 8%. (Beans are high in fiber, which decreases levels of LDL by reducing its absorption.) One-half cup of black, kidney, or pinto beans supplies about one-third of your day's fiber needs. (The heat from soup cooks canned beans through, and they add heft to a lighter broth).

Seltzer + grape juice
The benefit: Boosts heart health
Grape juice contains a phytochemical called resveratrol found in the skin of red and purple grapes. Research links resveratrol to lower blood pressure, reduced LDL cholesterol, and fewer blood clots.

Burger + ketchup
The benefit: Helps lower cancer risk
 A tablespoon of this condiment supplies you a healthful dose of lycopene, an antioxidant that guards against various forms of cancer by blocking cell-damaging free radicals. Eating processed tomatoes (such as those in ketchup and tomato sauce) is best; cooking releases lycopene inside the plant cells, making it easier to digest and absorb, reports Steven J. Schwartz, PhD, professor of food science at Ohio State University.

Lemon + green tea
The benefit: Lowers your risk of disease
 Green tea is already rich in antioxidants, but a study from Purdue University found that adding citrus juice led to a fourfold increase in disease-fighting catechins. Lemon juice in particular preserved the most catechins, while orange, lime, and grapefruit juices were less potent but effective. Love tea? Follow these 5 steps to brew the perfect cup.

There are many ways to reduce tension and relax. Here are the ten stress relievers I believe are most effective for the amount of work and time involved. Some can be learned in the time it takes to read this page, while others take a little more practice, but there's something here for everyone!

1. Breathing Exercises

Deep breathing is an easy stress reliever that has numerous benefits for the body, including oxygenating the blood, which ‘wakes up’ the brain, relaxing muscles and quieting the mind. Breathing exercises are especially helpful because you can do them anywhere, and they work quickly so you can de-stress in a flash. The Karate Breathing Meditation is a great exercise to start with, and this basic breathing exercise can be done anywhere!

2. Meditation

Meditation builds on deep breathing, and takes it a step further. When you meditate, your brain enters an area of functioning that’s similar to sleep, but carries some added benefits you can’t achieve as well in any other state, including the release of certain hormones that promote health. Also, the mental focus on nothingness keeps your mind from working overtime and increasing your stress level. Here's an article on different types of meditation to help you get started.

3. Guided Imagery

It takes slightly more time to practice guided imagery, but this is a great way to leave your stress behind for a while and relax your body. Some find it easier to practice than meditation, as lots of us find it more doable to focus on ‘something’ than on ‘nothing’. You can play natural sounds in the background as you practice, to promote a more immersive experience.

4. Visualizations

Building on guided imagery, you can also imagine yourself achieving goals like becoming healthier and more relaxed, doing well at tasks, and handling conflict in better ways. Also, visualizing yourself doing well on tasks you’re trying to master actually functions like physical practice, so you can improve your performance through visualizations as well!

5. Self-hypnosis

Self-hypnosis incorporates some of the features of guided imagery and visualizations, with the added benefit of enabling you to communicate directly you’re your subconscious mind to enhance your abilities, more easily give up bad habits, feel less pain, more effectively develop healthier habits, and even find answers to questions that may not be clear to your waking mind! It takes some practice and training, but is well worth it. Learn more about using hypnosis to manage stress in your life.

6. Exercise

Many people exercise to control weight and get in better physical condition to become more healthy or physically attractive, but exercise and stress management are also closely linked. Exercise provides a distraction from stressful situations, as well as an outlet for frustrations, and gives you a lift via endorphins as well. This article can tell you more about the stress management benefits of exercise, and help you get more active in your daily life.

7. Progressive Muscle Relaxation

By tensing and relaxing all the muscle groups in your body, you can relieve tension and feel much more relaxed in minutes, with no special training or equipment. Start by tensing all the muscles in your face, holding a tight grimace ten seconds, then completely relaxing for ten seconds. Repeat this with your neck, followed by your shoulders, etc. You can do this anywhere, and as you practice, you will find you can relax more quickly and easily, reducing tension as quickly as it starts!

8. Sex

You probably already know that sex is a great tension reliever, but have you officially thought of it as a stress-relieving practice? Perhaps you should. The physical benefits of sex are numerous, and most of them work very well toward relieving stress. Sadly, many people have less sex when their stress levels are high. Learn how to avoid this trap!

ECG, Holter, Stress TestHigh quality ECG system. Italian product, good prices!

Master Self HypnosisTwo learning methods in one package from world renowned Dr. Pulos!

9. Music

Music therapy has shown numerous health benefits for people with conditions ranging from mild (like stress) to severe (like cancer). When dealing with stress, the right music can actually lower your blood pressure, relax your body and calm your mind. Here are some suggestions of different types of music to listen to, and how to use music in your daily life for effective stress management.

10. Yoga

Yoga is one of the oldest self-improvement practices around, dating back over 5 thousand years! It combines the practices of several other stress management techniques such as breathing, meditation, imagery and movement, giving you a lot of benefit for the amount of time and energy required. Learn more about how to manage stress with yoga.

Will Money Change Your Life”
By Christopher Mogil and Anne Slepian
It changed ours, from top to bottom. If we hadn't inherited that money in our twenties, we wouldn't have spent the next decade exploring money and values, wouldn't have written a book about generous givers, and wouldn't have created More Than Money. Everything would have been different--our home, our friends, our calling.

Why is it that sudden fortune is like a tidal wave in some lives and a ripple in others? Why do some people seem to handle these changes more easily than others? We've observed three factors that tend to influence the changes wealth creates:

1) Amount of Money
How grand the wealth--both in absolute terms and compared to your means before--makes a difference. (anonymous author's) lottery winnings allowed his whole family to feel more financially secure, while Lynnaea Lumbard's very large inheritance "swept away" her old life, despite her wish to be unchanged. When the two of us inherited, while the sum was not vast in absolute terms, to us it was awesome, given our then modest means and living expenses.

2) Stage of Life
How your life will change is likely to be affected by your chronological age, but even more by your stage of life. Even if Vaughn and Lynnaea's "before" and "after" wealth had been identical, we predict life stage would have shaped their different responses: he won the lottery in his sixties, not far from retirement; she was in early middle age and not truly fulfilled by her pre-wealth life (even if she was attached to it). When our unexpected inheritance came at twenty-four, our lives were still quite unformed. Had we been engulfed in careers and children, as are many of the same age, a different story would have unfolded.

3) Strength of Character and Purpose
How solid and healthy are your values, your sense of direction and purpose, your integrity, and your relationships? As family wealth counselor Jay Link advises parents, "Wealth does not build character; it only reveals it." Wealth tends to amplify both strengths and we a knesses. If you think of yourself as the container through which wealth pours, with a small flow of money, cracks in the vessel might barely show; but if money is a torrent, those cracks become painfully obvious and may even burst. When we inherited, our values and self-esteem were reasonably strong; even so, we were young and, for a time, became lost in the quagmire of having too many choices.

Many who become suddenly wealthy are ambivalent about money changing their lives: while thrilled to be relieved of financial worry and excited about greater freedom and options, they are often worried about how their relationships and identity may change. Whether the changes are small or large depend, in part, on the amount of money and stage of life they're in. But how well they cope with whatever change comes will depend most on nurturing healthy inner strength and a strong sense of guiding purpose.

Christopher Mogil and Anne Slepian are the founders of More Than Money. They are award-winning writers, presenters, and organizers on issues of wealth stewardship. Their books include Taking Charge of Our Money, Our Values, and Our Lives; Welcome to Philanthropy; and We Gave Away a Fortune.
