Kim Kardashian recently opened up about her new workout and diet plan that led to her slimmer figure.


REUTERS/LUCAS JACKSONKim Kardashian has adopted a new workout and diet plan.

Kardashian recently sat down with the ladies of The View to discuss the changes in her life. According to the reality star, unflattering paparazzi photos of her during a vacation motivated her to find another way to get in better shape. She said she has adopted a new lifestyle that made her love fitness again.

.”I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were photoshopping them and sharpening them,” the mother of two said. “I mean I definitely was not in my best shape. I hadn’t worked out in 12 weeks.”

She added that due the surgeries she had on her uterus, she did not feel like herself at the time. When edited photos of her were coming out, she realized that she had to put more focus on fitness. Kardashian shared that she gets up “between 5:30 and 6″ in the morning to work out for one hour and a half every day. She added that including vegetables and healthy carbs  to her diet significantly helped her shed the pounds

Aside from being a wife and a mother, the Armenian beauty recently entered the cosmetics industry. Kardashian’s new beauty line, KKW, officially launched Wednesday afternoon, with certain products immediately sold out.

The 36-year-old received criticism from her social media followers when a photo of her allegedly represented “blackface.” Kardashian had a noticeable darker skin tone in the KKW promotional photo, leading many to believe the image was offensive.

Kardashian eventually responded to the issue and said she was “really tan” during the shoot, and her deep skin tone was just caused by the studio lighting. She further explained that she “never wanted to offend anyone.”

Be Well – Inside & out: Women rule at Beach Bound Fitness

There are many reasons why women might choose to get their workout from a women’s-only gym boutique. Beyond not wanting to do warm-up stretches in front of a crowd because of concerns with gawking, an all-women’s gym can simply feel safer. Maybe someone has a history of abuse, or maybe she has personal body issues and doesn’t want to feel judged, or maybe she’s just tired of going to the gym where past experience suggests men have failed to wipe down equipment after they sweated all over the treadmill or weight machines.
Passionate about helping women improve their lives, group fitness instructor and personal trainer Trudy Neill from Beach Bound Fitness knows all these concerns intimately. That’s part of the reason she opened her boutique gym for women where she teaches beginning and advanced weight training, nutrition and flexibility for those who want one-on-one advice with no distractions. 
Another reason Neill opened her fitness business is because she walks her own talk. Both she and her husband escape the unpredictable weather here in the Pacific Northwest and they travel abroad every six months. If Neill is not exposing her beach body abs, forearms, biceps and triceps in the Caribbean, she might be basking on a beach in Mexico or Hawaii.
Her lifestyle is why she named her business Beach Bound Fitness and her boutique-size gym has an easy-going, comfortable vibe like a beach hut with wood-style floors and tropical plants. It also offers all the equipment needed for a complete workout.
Neill earned her personal training certification and her food nutrition specialist credentials from the International Sports Science Association. She worked in retail most of her career but a personal trainer of hers had encouraged her to pursue her own personal trainer certification and Neill is not looking back. 
As of August, Neill will have been running her own studio for a year. Most of her customers have come from face-to-face interaction but Neill said she also does social networking and she posts fliers at local businesses.
One thing’s for sure, there’s a lot less grunting, crashing and general tomfoolery at Beach Bound Fitness than what is observed inside a larger, more commercial gym. Beach Bound Fitness provides small group fitness classes for up to six women and Neill also offers individual training sessions that last 30 minutes. Small group boot camp sessions can last 45 minutes and are high-energy events that include six workout stations. 
Summer Slim is a new exercise program that Neill offers for those who want to tone up their abs, arms, legs and buttocks. Yet she also says that nutrition plays the biggest role in any weight loss and strength training program.
That’s why she offers eating plans to fit individual lifestyles. Her advice might include the Isagenix 30 day system, a cleansing and fat burning “starter pak” that includes meal replacement shakes to flush toxins from the body and boost energy.
“I have diet plans that can help someone quickly reach their weight loss goals when combined with two- to three-day workouts,” Neill said. 
Neill grew up locally and attended Lakes High School in Lakewood. At Mann Middle School she was an all-around gymnast. After she graduated from Lakes she got into weight lifting and noticed her confidence grow the stronger she became. 
“There’s something that feels so good about being able to get strong and be so independent while watching your body change for the better,” she said.
At Beach Bound Fitness, there’s no need to exercise on your way to class because the gym has an easy-access parking lot just off Meridian Avenue. In addition to exercise and diet training, Beach Bound Fitness also sells gym-related attire and food supplements. To book a session, or buy a gift certificate for someone else, Neill can be reached by phone at (253) 327-0633 or e-mail her at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Beach Bound Fitness is located at 2121 Meridian Ave. E. #8 in Edgewood. Visit facebook.com/beachboundfitnessshop and www.beachboundfitness.com.

GOP Health Plan Is Really a Rollback of Medicaid

PUBLIC HEALTH

Limiting the amount that the federal government would pay for each person would leave states with difficult choices, and would be a fundamental shift of financial risk.

JUNE 20, 2017

Tucked inside the Republican bill to replace Obamacare is a plan to impose a radical diet on a 52-year-old program that insures nearly one in five Americans.

The bill, of course, would modify changes to the health system brought by the Affordable Care Act. But it would also permanently restructure Medicaid, which covers tens of millions of poor or disabled Americans, including millions who are living in nursing homes with conditions like Alzheimer’s or the aftereffects of a stroke.

“This is the most consequential change in 50 years for low-income people’s health care,” said Joan Alker, the executive director of the Center for Children and Families at Georgetown University. “This is a massive change that has hardly been discussed.”

Since its founding, Medicaid has operated as a partnership between the federal government and the states. Each pays a share of patients’ medical bills, with no overall limit on spending. The American Health Care Act would try to slim down the federal share of that spending, by limiting how much the federal government would pay for each person enrolled in the program. The Senate version of the legislation, expected this week, is likely to make the payments still leaner in later years.

The results, according to independent analyses, would be major reductions in federal spending on Medicaid over time. States would be left deciding whether to raise more money to make up the difference, or to cut back on medical coverage for people using the program. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the changes would lead to a reduction in spending on Medicaid of more than $800 billion over a decade. (That figure also includes additional cuts to the Obamacare Medicaid expansion.)

Medicaid is the country’s largest government health care program, covering more Americans than its better-known sibling, Medicare.

Its reach is broad: About half of all births in the country are covered by Medicaid, and nearly 40 percent of children are covered through the program. Medicaid covers the long-term care costs of two-thirds of Americans living in nursing homes, many of them middle-class Americans who spent all of their savings on care before becoming eligible.

It covers children and adults with disabilities who require services that most commercial health insurance doesn’t include. It covers poor women who are pregnant or raising young children. Those populations were all included in the program before Obamacare became law.

It also provides insurance for poor adult Americans, and recent evidence shows that its expansion under Obamacare has given more poor people access to health care services and reduced their exposure to financial shocks.

The Republican approach would set a formula for determining a maximum payment for each person in the program. Then that cap would grow by a set rate each year. Lawmakers are negotiating about the rate to use, but all of the options are intended to grow more slowly than expected under the current system. The gap would be left for states to fill — or cut.

“While details remain elusive, this is shaping up to be the largest intergovernmental transfer of financial risk in our country’s history,” said Matt Salo, the executive director of the National Association of Medicaid Directors, in an email. Mr. Salo said that some of his directors would welcome caps if they came with more program flexibility, but said the current approach amounted to a funding cut.

The growth in medical spending tends to be uneven year over year, which means states might hit the caps in one year and fall under them in another, even without any program changes. Researchers at the Brookings Institution recently looked back at historical Medicaid spending to see what would have happened under a cap. They found that random variation was substantial.

Medicaid advocates worry particularly that a fixed growth rate doesn’t account for this varying pattern of health expenditures, which might shoot up in a year where there’s an epidemic or an important new treatment. Many Medicaid budgets increased in recent years after the introduction of expensive but effectivemedications for hepatitis C, for example. States had to pay more for the drug, but federal spending also increased to match it.

“Could you imagine tomorrow if finally we had a Zika virus vaccine, and that vaccine costs $50K a dose?” said Sara Rosenbaum, a professor of health law and policy at George Washington University. “Would you not want every woman of childbearing age to be immunized?”

Advocates for the structural change point to inefficiencies and waste in the current program. There is some evidence that Medicaid programs enroll some people who are not eligible and sometimes cover some services that are not medically necessary. James Capretta, a fellow at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, said that the current system, where the federal government matches all state spending, discourages efficiency.

But he and co-authors have also suggested a different, more generous approach than the one in the Republican legislation.

Most researchers who study the program closely say that it is already quite lean. Major savings, they say, will be hard to achieve without reducing medical benefits or cutting higher-cost patients from the program.

Trump administration officials and Republican members of Congress have argued that the Medicaid changes won’t cause anyone to lose insurance coverage directly. That statement is true in only the narrowest sense.

Because the funding cuts would fall to states, it is state officials who would decide whether to save money by raising taxes, reducing payments to nursing homes or eliminating benefits like home-based care for disabled beneficiaries, a few available options under the law.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that enrollment in Medicaid would decline substantially over a decade, as states pursued a variety of strategies to save money, some of which would push people out of the program.

Still, the Medicaid caps have not drawn the same public outcry as other provisions of the law that would cut back on coverage more directly. Several Republican senators have expressed concerns about changes to Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion, which broadened the program to include more low-income adults in 31 states.

Others worry about changes to private insurance subsidies that would make insurance less affordable to older, middle-class Americans. Fewer have spoken out about the cuts to Medicaid’s legacy beneficiaries. That means that, as the Senate works out final details, the forced diet for Medicaid is likely to stay in the bill.

​7 Sneaky Ways You Can Add Fat To Your Diet To Lose Weight

Fat phobia drove dieting for a long time. Raise your hand if you used to nom on fat-free Snack Wells or Cheezits back in the day. And it makes sense that we’d see this nutrient as the bad guy since fat has more calories per serving than other nutrients. Plus, it’s found in high doses in lots of unhealthy foods.

But more recently, research has been showing another side to fat, one that, counterintuitively, can help you slim down. “There is such a thing as healthy fats,” says Kim Larson, R.D.N., and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. And besides the benefits they provide your heart and brain, they can actually help people feel more full. That’s because fat takes longer to digest, which means it’s an extremely satiating food so you won’t be hungry again anytime soon. And that’s a very, very good thing when you’re trying to lose weight.

We asked Larson to spill her favorite healthy sources of fat and how to incorporate them into your diet when you’re trying to drop pounds.

Diet Doc Adds Focus-Improving L-Theanine to its Prescription Line-Up

Charleston, WV, June 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Medical weight loss program, Diet Doc is rolling out newly formulated prescriptions containing the amino acid, L-Theanine. L-Theanine is not common in the diet (it is only found in tea), nor is it one of the essential amino acids. However, L-Theanine can be a relaxing agent without sedation (relative to something like lemon balm which relaxes but may also sedate), and is also linked to the reduced perception of stress and slight improvements in focus and attention. While L-theanine does not appear to induce sleep, it may help with sleep as well. Here’s a list of L-Theanine’s benefits:

If you’re interested in managing stress and/or increasing focus, the relaxing and attention promoting properties of L-theanine coupled with the lack of sedation may have its most significant supplemental role in attenuating the ‘edge’ of many stimulants. A combination of L-Theanine with caffeine such as in Diet Doc’s Brain Doc prescription is noted to be synergistic in promoting cognition and attention. L-Theanine, is synergistic with stimulants such as caffeine as it is effective in standard supplemental dosages as well. and although it can be attained via a diet high in green tea ingestion that is the only dietary source of L-Theanine. There are some health benefits associated with green and black tea ingestion that are thought to be more reflective of the Theanine content rather than the green tea catechins or the theaflavins, and this has also been linked to improved cardiovascular health (as L-Theanine positively regulates nitric oxide) in addition to its cognitive benefits.

Who can benefit from L-Theanine? Aging patients who are looking to maintain their mental sharpness, those suffering from sleep disorders and individuals who are looking to better regulate their moods. Diet Doc medications containing L-Theanine are best used in conjunction with any of Diet Doc’s customized weight loss programs. L-Theanine can help to provide the energetic boost needed for increased physical activity and a higher functioning metabolism.

New patients can get started immediately, with materials shipped directly to their home or office. They can also maintain weight loss in the long-term through weekly consultations, customized diet plans, motivational coaches and a powerful prescription program. With Diet Doc, the doctor is only a short phone call away and a fully dedicated team of qualified professionals is available 6 days per week to answer questions, address concerns and support patients.

China’s pork demand hits a peak, shocking producers, as diets get …


BEIJING China’s frozen dumpling makers are finding there’s a quick route to winning new sales – increase the vegetable content, and cut down on the meat.

This departure from traditional pork-rich dumplings is a hit with busy, young urbanites, trying to reduce the fat in diets often heavy on fast food.

“They like to try to eat more healthy products once a week or fortnight. It’s a big trend for mainland China consumers, especially those aged 20 to 35,” said Ellis Wang, Shanghai-based marketing manager at U.S. food giant General Mills (GIS.N), which owns top dumpling brand Wanchai Ferry.

For pig farmers in China and abroad, it is a difficult trend to stomach. The producers and other market experts had expected the growth to continue until at least 2026.

Chinese hog farmers are on a building spree, constructing huge modern farms to capture a bigger share of the world’s biggest pork market, while leading producers overseas have been changing the way they raise their pigs to meet Chinese standards for imports. Some have, for example, stopped using growth hormones banned in China.

China still consumes a lot more meat than any other country. People here will eat about 74 million tonnes of pork, beef and poultry this year, around twice as much as the United States, according to U.S. agriculture department estimates. More than half of that is pork and for foreign producers it has been a big growth market, especially for Western-style packaged meats.

But pork demand has hit a ceiling, well ahead of most official forecasts. Sales of pork have now fallen for the past three years, according to data from research firm Euromonitor. Last year they hit three-year lows of 40.85 million tonnes from 42.49 million tonnes in 2014, and Euromonitor predicts they will also fall slightly in 2017.

Chinese hog prices are down around 25 percent since January, even though official numbers suggest supply is lower compared with last year.

RARE LUXURY

Since China began opening up to the world in the late 1970s, pork demand expanded by an average 5.7 percent every year, until 2014 as the booming economy allowed hundreds of millions of people to afford to eat meat more often. During Mao Zedong’s reign as Chinese leader from 1949-76 meat had, for many, been a rare luxury.

Now, growing concerns about obesity and heart health shape shopping habits too, fuelling sales of everything from avocados to fruit juices and sportswear. [reut.rs/2rpFDhp] [reut.rs/2tis0Tg]

“Market demand remains very weak. I think one factor behind this is people believe less meat is healthier. This is a new trend,” said Pan Chenjun, executive director of food and agriculture research at Rabobank in Hong Kong.

Sales of vegetable-only dumplings grew 30 percent last year, compared with around 7 percent for all frozen dumplings, Nielsen research also shows.

“Demand for vegetable products keeps rising, giving us large room for growth,” said Zhou Wei, product manager at number two dumpling producer Synear Food.

Guangzhou-based Harmony Catering says health is the key to reduced servings of meat to the roughly 1 million workers eating at its 300 canteens each day.

Staff at the technology companies, banks and oil majors that are Harmony’s clients will consume about 10 percent less meat today than they did five years ago, but around 10 percent more green vegetables, according to Harmony vice president Li Huang. “It’s mainly because of media, the concept of health has entered popular consciousness,” he said.

For now, it’s mostly urban and white-collar workers paying closer attention to their diets. There’s been, for example, a sharp rise in vegetarian food stations at university campuses. But the government wants a nationwide shift in eating habits.

Childhood obesity in China is rocketing, and the country also faces an epidemic of heart disease, Harvard researchers warned last year. Among the problems, they blamed growing consumption of red meat and high salt intake.

In April, the health ministry kicked off its second 10-year healthy lifestyle campaign, urging citizens to consume less fat, salt and sugar, and aim for a ‘healthy diet, healthy weight and healthy bones’.

By 2030, Beijing wants to see a marked increase in nutritional awareness, a 20 percent cut in the per capita consumption of salt, and slower growth in the rate of obesity, it said in its recently published ‘Healthy China 2030′ pamphlet.

Meat consumption by type and country: reut.rs/2s3F00J

Some companies have been urgently changing the mix of products they sell, going for higher-margin pork meats rather than volume. Sales of traditionally less popular lamb and beef have also been increasing.

Li of Harmony Catering says although servings of pork are down, the firm is including more beef and lamb in meals.

“People usually eat lean beef or lamb, like beef brisket, while with pork it’s both fatty and lean parts, like in ‘hong shao rou’,” said Beijing-based nutritionist Chen Zhikun, referring to the widely consumed braised pork dish.

China’s top pork producer WH Group has been going up market, selling Western-style products in China, such as sausages and ham. A lot of this is imported from Smithfield, the largest U.S. pork producer, which was acquired by WH in 2013.

Some producers say that the recent drop in pork consumption can be partly explained by sharply lower output. A prolonged period of losses during 2013 to 2015 forced farmers to cull millions of hogs, hitting supply and sending pork prices to record levels in 2016.

But for a growing portion of Chinese consumers, price tags on food items are less and less important. A spate of safety scandals in recent years, many related to meat, have made urban Chinese highly sensitive to food quality.

More than 80 percent of people in China surveyed by Nielsen last year said they were willing to pay more for foods without undesirable ingredients, much higher than the global average of 68 percent.

“China is in a new stage where consumption of pork and other foods is no longer a simple matter of ‘more is better’,” said Fred Gale, senior economist at the United States agriculture department.
