Northern Macomb Lifestyle healthy diet program kicks off with documentary



Mitt.TV owner Ruth Heidebreicht is partnering with several organizations to try to bring broader awareness of healthy eating habits to northern Macomb County.

She is partnering with Chickpea and Bean and Willow Pond Farm for the Northern Macomb Lifestyle Challenge that will kick off April 22 with a documentary showing at the Masonic Lodge in downtown Romeo.

We want to show people in our community how much a plant-based diet can affect their short-term and long-term health, Heidebreicht said. We can make a difference in our community, and I want to help with that initiative.

Local community leaders will be participating in the intensive 21-day program, and 14 local restaurants have created plant-based menu items.

The program will kick off with a screening of the 2016 documentary Eating You Alive at the Masonic Lodge at 6 p.m. Participants will be able to ask the filmmakers questions and try out plant-based foods.

The challenge will then begin on April 29 at the Lodge from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with program registration and more food to sample. Blood tests will be taken to compare with tests taken at the end of the program. Presentations will be given throughout the program by dietary experts and doctors.

One person who can attest to the positive results of the plant-based diet is Chickpea and Bean co-founder Marc Ramirez.

Ramirez, who founded the company with his wife, Kim, after learning the benefits of a plant-based diet, had a history of chronic illness in his family.

After a career as an offensive lineman on the University of Michigan football team, he weighed in at 305 pounds with diabetic, blood pressure and cholesterol issues.

I thought that was my fate; that was my future, Ramirez said of his problematic health issues.

In December 2011, he began a plant-based diet knowing his issues would only worsen with time.

Within 60 days he was off all the medications he was taking to control his diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

He lost 50 pounds in three months and now weighs 210 pounds.

I will never go back to that lifestyle, he said. I am in the best shape of my life, and my diet helped change my entire life.

Ramirez and Chickpea and Bean were featured in the Eating You Alive documentary. He said that a change in diet can be the key to obesity issues facing millions of people around the nation.

Food is what is killing America, but it is also what can save America, Ramirez said.

Local restaurants like Thee Office Pub, Youngers Irish Tavern and 4 Corners Diner will each be adding plant-based items to their menu to help participants be able to eat healthy when they head out for a meal.

I think it is a great idea, 4 Corners owner Marty Hutnick said. We need to listen to the community and see what they want and keep them from going somewhere else if they want to try and eat healthy.

Local leaders such as Romeo Village Trustees Christine Malzahn and Bob Hart along with Bruce Township Clerk Susan Brockmann and Supervisor Richard Cory will participate in the program as well.

I was reluctant at first, but then realized what little I knew about this type of nutrition or how to cook with plant-based foods, Malzahn said. I am stepping out of my comfort zone and challenging myself to try something a little different, and I hope everyone will join me.

Heidebreicht said that a Facebook page will be set up to help participants in the program. She said that to date 100 people are set to try the program.

The cost of the documentary screening is $10, and the cost to participate in the 21-day program is $50.

Fewer Americans Trying To Lose Weight | Fort Smith/Fayetteville …

It seems the battle of the bulge isn’t quite the fight it used to be.

A new study found that the obesity rate across the country continue to rise, but found the amount of Americans going on a diet to lose weight is declining.

Researchers believe that it’s because as more people are becoming obese, people are having a harder time recognizing that they themselves are overweight; which is leading to a lack of motivation to ditch the extra pounds.

Experts said if you are concerned about your weight, see a doctor and work with them to get the tools you need to get on the right track.

Stick with making small daily changes to your lifestyle, because that can make a big difference.

Diet Doc’s Comprehensive Weight Loss Program Surpasses Military Diet Results

MONTGOMERY, AL–(Marketwired – April 20, 2017) – The Military Diet claims rapid weight loss results for individuals who have the military-style discipline to adhere to its strict guidelines. The official website says that people can lose up to 10 pounds each week without the help of exercise or supplements. It consists of very low-calorie foods that work together in order to activate weight loss. The Military Diet is an attractive option, given that one only needs to adhere to its low-calorie meal plans for 3 out of 7 days; leaving dieters the option of eating whatever else they want during the other four days.

The Military Diet appeals most to those who want to lose a few quick pounds prior to a vacation or an event. However, the meals themselves aren’t sustainable for long-term weight loss, nor do they provide any health benefits. Its heavy protein, minimal fruit and vegetable servings and freestyle approach to the rest of the week won’t go far towards preventing common diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and high-cholesterol, which are becoming growing health crises. Given that the diet is so low in calories, it is essentially a form of fasting that may come with some residual side effects such as low-energy, fatigue, persistent hunger pangs and increased irritability.

If one can discipline themselves enough to follow the Military Diet, why not choose a better diet program that can improve overall health and promote long-term weight maintenance?

This drink helps you slash belly fat – without diet or exercise

You’d never suspect it, but tomato juice has been hailed as a miracle weight loss drink.

According to a study, published in the journal Nutrition, sipping on a daily glass of tomato juice can drastically slim your waistline – without you needing to make any other changes to your diet.

Researchers found that women who guzzled a 280ml glass of the veggie drink each day lost 50% more belly fat over an eight-week period.

What’s more, most of the ladies lost more than a pound in body weight and the tasty beverage also reduced cholesterol levels.

Bowel cancer news: THIS specific diet plan to SHRINK tumours could be future treatment

Serine is found in animal products including meat, beef, dairy products like cheese.

Plant origin sources including almonds, asparagus, chickpea, black-eyed pea, flax-seed, lentils, sesame seed, walnut and soy beans.

Amino acids are the building blocks that cells need to make proteins.

While healthy cells are able to make sufficient serine and glycine, cancer cells are much more dependent on getting these vital amino acids from the diet.

However, the study also found that the diet was less effective in tumours with an activated Kras gene, such as most pancreatic cancer, because the faulty gene boosted the ability of the cancer cells to make their own serine and glycine.

Fad Diet: Eat according to your blood group

Fad Diet: Eat according to your blood group

The tendency of individuals trying to lose weight is to look for the fastest and the easiest way to do so, thereby giving rise to a growing jungle of “fad diets”. There are numerous types of fad diets available with supportive theories giving consumers a varied choice to select the diet that feeds their fantasy.

Many popular weight loss programs appear to fulfil their promises in the short term by restricting certain food groups.

One of the most widely common diet regimens heard of is ‘The Blood Group’ diet. There are many people who swear by this diet; but what are the details of the blood type diet, and is it based on any solid evidence? Know more from the experts at Weightmonitor UAE, UAE’s first app based weight loss program.

The Blood Group diet is based on the idea that your blood type reflects your anthropological background and that this influences your body’s reaction to food. ‘Eat Right for Your Type’ is based on the notion that people can improve their digestion, lose weight, and get healthy by eating only foods that are harmonious with their individual blood type.

This diet has no scientific foundation and most evidence is based on anecdotal findings, and testimonials of short-term results. This is also nutritionally imbalanced diet. For example:  the diet plan for Type O and A blood types is that dairy products are limited and consequently the diet is low in calcium and also other essential nutrients.

A recent scientific study conducted at the University of Toronto, published in 2014 in Plos One Journal, debunked the ‘Blood Type’ diet hypothesis and reported that eating foods according to your blood type does not help in losing weight and decreasing the risk of chronic diseases.   

Blood group diets lack scientific validity and is based on a clinician’s observation. Also it’s practically impossible to imagine a house hold with different blood groups different diets. Diets do need to be customized according to individual needs. We do face the issue of food sensitivities. However there is a scientific basis to this. All on all we need to change eating habits, understand food make eating right a commitment.

Finally, there is no magic solution for weight loss and there are no short-cuts. Simply reducing calories and fat may not be enough. A successful diet plan enables you to lose weight slowly and surely, and establishes a healthy eating and exercise pattern that will last a lifetime, so that weight loss is permanent. – TradeArabia News Service
