Eating Holiday-Healthy

The feasting season will soon be here! From Thanksgiving to New Year’s, there will be ample opportunity to become, well, more ample in the weight department!

This year, making smart choices at holiday parties and dinners may help you avoid the yearly weight loss resolutions on New Year’s Day. Here are the foods you should be looking for…

Veggies – Everyone knows that our green and yellow buddies in the vegetable kingdom can fill us up without filling us out
Shrimp Cocktail – High in protein and low in fat
Pork Tenderloin, Turkey or Ham – For the meat-lovers, nutritionists say these are your best choices for maintaining balance in your diet
Swedish Meatballs - Another protein-rich option

Of course, none of these foods gives you a license to over-eat. They just give you a fighting chance to make it through the holidays without packing on the pounds

How Healthy Is Your State?

If you’re concerned about your health (and what Baby Boomer isn’t), the 2017 Senior Health Report is available from the United Health Foundation. Best of all, it’s free!

Visit AmericasHealthRankings.org to obtain your copy.

BTW – the healthiest states for Boomer Health are Minnesota, Utah and Hawaii. The 3 “unhealthiest”: Mississippi, Kentucky and Oklahoma.

The report is based on this definition of health from the World Health Organization:
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

Your Thermostat Might Be Affecting Your Weight

No, really. Researchers have found that temperature can affect weight loss. That means keep your house set at, say 65 degrees at night may actually encourage your body to burn more fat!

 

 

 

Chill Out & Lose Weight?

As we head into winter, the experts say turning down your thermostat can cause your body to produce a hormone called irisin that can lead to burning more calories and weight loss!

You don’t have to live in a meat locker. Lowering the temp in your home between 75 to 68 should do the trick!

Fit Body = Fit Mind

Modern research suggest the best way to keep your brain active and sharp is to get exercise for your body!

AARP's experts recommend:

  • 150 minutes of exercise a week
  • Strength training 2 or more times a week
  • Lead an active lifestyle
  • To stay motivated consider exercising with a group
