Obesity and Why People Overeat

Posted: Sun, Nov 30, 2014
By: Danielle Heard, MS, HHC

Historically, conventional approaches to obesity have suggested that obesity is caused by personal choice, a personal failure of willpower, a lack of education as well as not enough exercise. But, emerging research into obesity has identified that there is much more involved such as environmental influences that conspire to get people to make unhealthy choices or cause them to become so highly addicted to foods that they can't control their eating and thoughts of food which drives them to overeat.

The number of obese people in America has increased dramatically over the last 30 years. Now, two thirds of adults are obese along with 17% of children. When compared to other wealthy peer countries, America has (Read Full Article)

Holiday Turkey Makeover Recipes

In the wake of many holiday celebrations is an abundance of leftover roasted turkey. After a couple of days of eating leftover turkey, it is time to give it new energy by transforming it into an entirely different dish.

This is a quick and easy turkey soup recipe that tastes delicious, looks elegant and utilizes both the leftover roasted turkey and wild rice from a traditional holiday dinner. You can also substitute the turkey with chicken in this recipe.

My dad said he thinks this is one of the best meals I have ever made. This soup tastes so good that you will want to make it even when it isn't holiday time!

1. When planning a holiday such as Thanksgiving, think about all the wonderful varieties of foods that you can prepare and enjoy with friends and family. Think about their color, texture and flavors. Try to make your meal as fresh and colorful as possible with various crunchy, creamy textures and a variety of tastes such as sweet, sour, bitter, pungent and salty. When you balance meals with these various elements, it is more satisfying and can prevent overeating. So think about these elements as you make your shopping list and plan what you will be serving.

2. If your guests are arriving several hours prior to serving the meal, set out beautiful vegetable and fruit trays with dip or even some freshly made guacamole, popcorn or raw nuts for people to snack on. This will give them something lite to munch on that is also healthy and that takes very little time to prepare. I like to serve pomegranate seeds with orange slices and pineapple or a vegetable tray with a nice (Read Full Article)
