Eat More Protein

Joy Allison, a certified NJ nutritionist and creator of the FOODFIT weight loss program in NJ, says that eating a protein packed breakfast can help people lose weight by reducing mid morning cravings.

“Protein takes longer to digest and can help people feel full longer,” Joy explains.  “This feeling of satiety can help those looking to shed pounds avoid snacking on junk foods in between meals.”  Eggs are a great source of protein but when there’s no time for a hot breakfast, Joy recommends spreading some all natural peanut butter on whole grain toast, enjoying a handful of walnuts or almonds with a small piece of fruit or adding a protein supplement to a low-calorie, vitamin packed shake.

Joy also says that it’s OK to snack on low calorie fruits or vegetables in between meals to avoid binging at the next meal.

Health Dangers for Men Caused by Sugar Sweetened Drinks

NJ Nutritionist Joy Allison, owner and creator of FOODFIT, warns of the dangers for men who consume at least 12 ounces of sugar-sweetened beverages every day. According to research published in Circulation, an American Heart Association journal, men who drink sugary beverages every day increase their chances of heart disease by 20%.

Heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States, has several risk factors including obesity, smoking, lack of physical activity, diabetes and poor diet. Of the 42,883 men studied, risk for heart disease stayed high in those drinking sugary beverages even after cutting out other major risk factors. Those who consumed sweetened beverages had higher triglyceride and CRP and lower HDL levels.

To fight the chances of heart disease, the American Heart Association and NJ nutritionist Joy Allison recommend switching to naturally flavored water or unsweetened iced tea. Solliday warns against consuming more than 150 calories per week from sugar-sweetened beverages and no more than 100 calories per week for most women. Infrequent consumption of sweetened drinks, such as two times per week or less, was not found to increase the chance of heart disease in men.

Dieters who follow a weight loss plan like FOODFIT don’t have to give up all of their favorite drinks. Joy’s weight loss program suggests using all natural sweeteners like agave or a hint of lemon to add flavor to beverages like unsweetened iced tea.
