Plant-based diet program set at Union Hospital

Are you sick and tired of feeling — well, sick and tired?

Union Hospital’s Community Health and Wellness staff has a potential solution through a plant-based diet.

Mary Marshall, a registered nurse at the hospital, will present an introduction to “Plant Strong” during a free kickoff dinner and movie event scheduled for 6 p.m. on July 25 in the hospital’s Reeves Auditorium. The program will feature a discussion, a lasagna dinner complete with a salad and fruit, and a showing of the documentary “Forks Over Knives.”

Registration for this free event can be made by calling the UH Community Relations Department at 330-308-3599 or by visiting the Health Events link on the Union Hospital website at www.unionhospital.org.

Attendees at the kickoff dinner also can register for a six-week “Plant Strong” program that will begin in August. More details will be provided during the kickoff event.

Marshall said the goal of the program is to offer education about how a low-fat, whole-food, plant-based diet has been shown to safely and effectively help prevent, manage and even reverse chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and more.

“I was first introduced to the idea of a plant-based diet by a physician friend who told me about the book ‘Prevent and Reverse Hear Disease’ by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn,” Marshall said. “That kind of planted a seed in my mind that I wanted everyone to at least have the option of accessing this information and using it.”

Marshall also is planning the six-week course that will be held in the hospital beginning Aug. 22 for two hours each week. She will provide complete details and register interested attendees during the kickoff event.

Information about Union Hospital and all of its services available to the community is available on the hospital website at www.unionhospital.org, and on the hospital’s pages on Facebook and Twitter (@Union_Hospital).

‘I was riveted by your rig!’ Today’s Karl Stefanovic asks Tim Robards for fitness tips while jokingly spooning food …

Chloe-lee Longhetti For Daily Mail Australia


The Bachelor’s Tim Robards is known for his buff frame, having his own fitness and diet program. 

And it didn’t go unnoticed by Today’s Karl Stefanovic, 42, with the TV presenter probing Tim about his ‘rig,’

Tim appeared on the breakfast program on Tuesday, after going shirtless when appearing on Ninja Warrior, on Monday.

‘I was riveted by your rig!’ Today’s Karl Stefanovic asks Tim Robards (pictured) for training and dieting tips while spooning food in his face after The Bachelor went shirtless on Ninja Warrior

‘I was watching last night and I was riveted by your rig,’ Karl said about his run on Ninja Warrior, making Tim laugh. 

‘It is an amazing rig that you have and I thought you’re going to chew up this course like an apple on a summer’s day, but what happened in the end, was it the injury?,’ Karl said, referring to Tim being eliminated in the course.  

Tim, 34, said he’d love to blame his arm injury but he just couldn’t grip the net, falling into the pool below. 

Bromance? Karl couldn’t help but ask how Tim achieved his buff physique

‘It’s one of those things, it’s your first go at it…I think the thing I screwed up at the end, I took too long and I couldn’t get the swing right and by the time I finally jumped to the net, I had my hands on it, but they were just gone,’ Tim said. 

Despite soon going off the topic of the ‘rig’ during the chat, Karl went back to the chiropractor’s fit physique. 

‘To get a rig like that, what condition do yo have to be in and what sort of things do you have to sort of stay away from, food wise, eating wise? I presume you have to have a pretty strict diet,’ Karl said, as he playfully spooned some of his breakfast into his mouth, as a joke. 

In good spirits: Tim laughed and said he sticks to his program, The Robards Method, and was motivated to recover from his bicep injury for Ninja Warrior

Hard yards: Hindered by the bicep injury, Tim impressively made his way through the first part of challenging course (pictured moments before he fell, after failing to grip the ladder)

Tim laughed and said he sticks to his program, The Robards Method, and was motivated to recover from his bicep injury for Ninja Warrior.  

Hindered by the bicep injury, Tim impressively made his way through the first part of challenging Ninja Warrior course, as his fiancée, Anna Heinrich, cheered him on from the sidelines.

Earlier on Ninja Warrior, there was a slightly awkward moment as Anna was incorrectly referred to as his ‘girlfriend,’ even though they pair became engaged in May.

Despite failing to make it through to the semi-finals, the chiropractor was in good spirits post-race, telling host Freddie Flintoff, ‘I just wasn’t getting the swing right.’

Tim joked: ‘I was a bit hot. Felt like a dip – you know!’ 

He still did well! Despite failing to make it through to the semi-finals, the chiropractor was in good spirits post-race, telling host Freddie Flintoff he ‘felt like a dip’

UO live- in requirement has potential for problems for student dietary restrictions

Due to the new operating hours for University of Oregon’s dining halls, students are directed to the EMU when looking for a meal past 9:00 p.m. (Phillip Quinn/Emerald)

When the University of Oregon decided to enact a new policy that freshmen are now required to live- in dorms, it raised the issue that everyone has different dietary needs. This raises questions in regards to students with specific dietary restrictions.

Many of the needs of students range from food necessity – religious restrictions like Jewish or Muslim foods, to allergies and disease- related issues.

Leah Andrews, the Director of Marketing and Communication for UO Housing has worked to understand student’s needs.

“Because food is so much a part of someone’s community and experience, that’s something that we’ve always worked with when students have special requests,” said Andrews. “And if it’s not possible, then they would be eligible for an exemption.”  

If a student’s dietary needs are something that university dining can’t accommodate, then the student is able to fill out an exemption form. This means they would be excused from the live- in requirement and can choose a different place to live will be reviewed by a board throughout the summer. The board consists of members of various university groups, including the dean of students and financial aid.

Andy Gitelson is the Executive Director of Oregon Hillel, who worked with housing to understand the needs of students with dietary restrictions. Particularly those common in Jewish communities like the Muslim community, who subscribe to Halal, or having foods prepared according to Muslim law.

“There’s just not a lot of options for us here in Eugene,” Gitelson said. “There are no Kosher restaurants per se, and none of the dining halls could ever pass as Kosher. So we’ve talked to housing about trying to find some pre-packaged options.”

While the university’s Jewish communities aren’t as large as other universities, the new live- in requirement could cause a potential problem for Jewish freshmen students looking at UO.

“Ideally if the university sees its Jewish and Halal communities grow, they will probably want to consider what other universities like Indiana University or Penn State that have larger Jewish populations with a lot more students who follow the dietary restrictions [and have] come up with a singular dining facility that fits the needs,” said Gitelson.

When a student faces a challenge like Celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that damages the small intestine when gluten is eaten, it can be daunting for them to move into a hall where they’re one among thousands of students that need to be fed.

Those in charge of the food choices for the halls are prepared to meet the needs of a variety of student diets and restrictions, including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free. The Director of Food Services Tom Driscoll understands the concerns that students have when coming into a new situation like the live- in requirement.

“I don’t think there’s any blanket approach that works for everybody,” Driscoll said. “I think that it’s best to meet with the individual, find out where their dietary needs are, see how we might be able to meet those and make everyone feel included and comfortable on campus. This is certainly not a ‘one size fits all’ kind of diet program.”

Experts suggested how to save the result at the end of the diet

Keep the desired weight is no easy task.

It would seem that there is nothing harder than to lose weight. Actually, the most difficult is to maintain such a long-awaited desired weight. Not to relax and not to get hateful extra pounds will help the recommendations of nutritionists.

Cherished numbers on the scale, and the storm of joy! I want to eat something delicious and to congratulate ourselves for this achievement. But it is not necessary to do this. After the diet comes the important step is to save the result.

Now most of the diets designed for the very small number of calories. It turns out that during the diet, your body starves, loses an important and much needed vitamins and minerals. Food when such diets are balanced, which leads to the desire to eat after the hunger strike. The body requires to fill the shortage of nutrients.

Diet an unbalanced diet will give quick results on the scales. However, to rejoice in him is not necessary, because the weight loss is due to the reduction of muscle mass, and this slows down the metabolic rate. The results can be obtained by the following process: desired weight – joy – lunch with a variety of sharp and inevitable weight gain.

In order to properly lose weight you need to set a goal. First and foremost, you should lose weight for yourself. When this is understood and realized, the result will be achieved easily and quickly. And all because when the person loses weight for themselves, he rebuilds not only thinking, but also feeding behavior.

Not just nutritionists say that the diet should become a way of life. You must learn to control himself and learn self-discipline. To be in the desired weight and tone should try to cope with stress, daily positive emotions actively and move a lot, as well as moderately and eat right.

Not adhering to these principles you can get into a vicious cycle of continuous weight loss and new weight gain. But such experiments will not pass in vain for health. Such jumps have lead to the failure of hormonal background, the menstrual cycle, which entails a serious disease which is difficult to fight.

To save the resulting weight result will help only the new program of eating behavior. It is best to contact an experienced dietitian, who will help you to lose weight and keep the weight off. Food habits need to change once, not several times a year. Before settling on a particular way of eating, you need to examine it for effectiveness and health benefits.

We all have our favorite dishes that I want to eat after dieting. It is quite possible to do without compromising the shape. Just need a small trick. You need to take the usual batch of your favorite Goodies and separated from it by the third part for themselves. Eat this in the morning after the main meal.

We must remember not only about food but also about water. Be sure to follow the daily quantity of its use.

Celebrate Independence by Not Gaining Weight on the 4th and Start Dieting on the 5th

Submitted by Don Doman

It is estimated that the average person puts on 10 pounds during the holiday season. We eat more often and we eat much richer foods during the holidays, so it is easy to put on pounds without realizing it. Most people think that they don’t have to worry about gaining weight on the 4th of July, because it’s only one day. But so are Thanksgiving and the other big bird stuffing days. This year with the 4th being on Tuesday, we have Saturday, Sunday, and possibly Monday to get through before we ever arrive at the day of celebration.

Most of us could benefit by dieting. Different people have different reasons in going on a diet. Some people need to do it to improve their health conditions, while others simply want to fit into their small sized clothing. Whatever your reasons are, you should always remind yourself of them, so that you become more motivated in going through your diet.

A Ball Park frank with bun and condiments is 260 calories.

A Ball Park – All Beef Hot Dog (With Bun, Ketchup, Mustard) has 260 calories. 459 calories is the count for a 1/4 pound burger with a bun. Who eats just one of these backyard delicacies? Add in potato salad, deviled eggs, green bean casserole, ambrosia whip cream fruit salad, various pies, ice cream with toppings and you have a mountain of calories to overcome. That’s just part of the problem.

Let’s say you’re going to Aunt Amy’s house for the gathering of family and friends. You’ve already sampled your own items to share. You know she always serves late, so you stop in at Arby’s for a Smokehouse Pork Belly sandwich on the way to fortify yourself with 860 calories (550 from fat alone). If you add fries and a coke, you’ve already had more than some people in the world eat in a day . . . or several days. So, what should you have done?

The object of celebrating is to enjoy yourself, your family, and your friends.

First of all, you need a good night’s sleep and a decent breakfast. When you eat your breakfast, it is best if you include eggs in it. This is because eggs are filled with quality protein called albumin. Aside from that, it can also provide you with energy giving nutrients. Thus, it can help you attain higher metabolism, and could make you more energetic throughout the day.

You’re going to bring a dish or two to share of course. Forget the canned Bush’s baked beans to which you always add maple syrup, brown sugar, Grey Poupon Dijon, and half a pound of cooked bacon from Metro Market.

I recommend sliced cucumbers and apples soaking in rice vinegar with a touch of sea salt and ground pepper. Make plenty, so you can snack on them yourself. Food/salad dressings that contain vinegar actually help you in burning more fats. This is because they contain acetic acid, which can speed up your body’s ability of processing calories and fats.

You might also create a little fresh fruit salad. Chunks of cantaloupe, melon, and pineapple are fairly cheap currently. Throw them in a large bowl. With a little more rice vinegar and a couple tablespoons of frozen orange juice you can make a healthy dressing. Top off your mixture with a small container of blackberries for color and tartness and you are ready to go.

Eating fruits and vegetables is one of the best things to do to lose weight since they are filled with vitamins and minerals, as well as enzymes. However, it is best if you consume them in their raw form. This is because processing or cooking them would kill the essential nutrients and enzymes. After snacking on your own preparations you can still stop in at Arby’s and even order the Smokehouse Pork Belly sandwich by itself. Eat the two or three strips of pork belly and throw the rest away. The pork belly has all the flavor anyway.

The 4th of July is a major holiday, but you don’t have to overeat!

At the party go ahead an have a lite beer or two, or a glass of red wine, but nurse them. Don’t bother with drinking lots of water unless the weather is really, really hot. Water can bloat you and make you feel uncomfortable. The object of a celebration is to enjoy yourself. Snack on your own items, enjoy a hot dog or two and a hamburger, but forget the buns and you might be able to have a piece of pie and still feel like you earned it. Consider that you’re really just combining lunch and dinner.

If you have two or three parties like this from the first through the fourth, you should be able to walk away without much gain . . . if at all. Whenever I’m confronted by a buffet meal, I always ask myself, “Do I really like this food?” Often the answer is, “No.” If the answer is no for you, then your decision to eat sparingly should be easily swallowed. Enjoying the food and the company should be your goal. Enjoying your food does not necessarily mean that you eat it as fast as you can. It means that you should savor it. Try to appreciate its looks, smell, taste, and texture. When you do that, you will have a more pleasant experience in eating. I have no solutions for annoying cousins and friends.

On the fifth of July you might even start thinking about a weight loss plan. If you need a little help, we have local author Dana Luchini who supervises diet plans. She says, “Our Healthy-Aging Diet™ HCG Weight Loss Program is safe, effective and it offers consistent weight loss. Patients will also experience a reduction of risk factors for chronic health conditions.” You can also visit the website www.live2agewell.com, which has approximately one hundred articles on food and nutrition. Each article is vetted by the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University. With excellent local produce and fresh seafood almost at our doorsteps, the prospect of eating well and enjoying it more, while celebrating a holiday and a wonderful summer in Western Washington is a great possibility.
