Stress Reduction

Stress Reduction How and what we eat affects our health both positively and negatively. Our diet can help to prevent and treat certain diseases and can affect our emotional well being.

Q: What factors affect our nutrition?

A: Numerous factors enter into our diets, such as our busy life-styles; high availability of fast foods; extensive marketing of the desirability of fast foods; our eating habits, whether regular meals or random eating; and the amount of stress in one's life. Higher stress often leads to increased comsumption of less helathy choices.

Q: How can one evaluate their diet?

A: The food pyramid. Keep a dietary record for several days, then compare it monthly to see any change in patterns, as well as the HEI (health eating index.)

Q: What is the food pyramid and HEI?

A: The food gyuide pyramid consists of five food groups to include 1) bread, cereal, rice, pasta; 2) vegetables; 3) meat, fish, poultry, nuts, eggs and beans; 4) fruit; 5) milk, yogurt, cheese.

The HEI is a single measure of the overall dietary quality based on the food pyramid and consumption of total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium and a variety of other foods. The HEI can be found on USDA's Web site at www.usda.gov

Q: How do you go about changing your dietary habits?

A: Your ability to change your behavior is often related to the amount of stress in your life. The more stress, the harder it will be to change in a positive direction. So, stress reduction management is often the first step. Other helpful tips include 1) making small changes and sticking to them long-term, as opposed to changing your whole diet at once; 2) if you go back to old eating habits for a day or week, it doesn't mean you've failed; 3) set goals and write them down. When you reach the first goal, reward yourself, then set a new goal; 4) make only one change at a time and start with an easy change; 5) add something new to your diet like fruit or vegetables, as opposed to taking something away; 6) choose more of the healthy foods you enjoy, like making your own pizza, using low-fat cheese and vegetables; 7) find out the nutritional content of fast foods, so if you do eat out, you will know what you are consuming; 8) read food labels and content of fast foods, so if you do eat out, you will know what you are consuming; 9) buy a new cookbook; 10) take a healthful cooking class; 11) involve a friend, co-worker or family member to help keep you motivated; 12) be adventurous and try new foods that are low in fat and sugar; 13) make it a habit and aim for at least three months.

Q: What are some healthful tips?

A: Drink more water and add lemon for a change; aim for a healthy weight by increasing exercise and decreasing calories; lose weight gradually and aim for no more than one pound a week; choose a variety of fruit and vegetables; increase fiber in your diet; choose a diet low in saturated fats and cholesterol; choose beverages and foods that limit your sugar intake; limit your amount of alcohol, which adds empty calories; eat breakfast and do not go longer than 4-5 hours without having a healthful snack; consult a dietician; plan your meals ahead; remember dietary supplements do not take the place of a poor diet; increase the amount of functional foods which include bran, oats, grapes, garlic and soy products; decrease the amount of sodium foods; follow your special diet if the doctor prescribes one. Some of these include cardiac, diabetic diets and gluten or lactose intolerance; and decrease the portion size.

Remember, you must want to change your eating patterns and the benefits of healthful eating are plentuful. The old saying, "You are what you eat," is so true.

  • Re: Military Stress... - Officers can declare themselves unfit and request the opportunity to resign their commission... It's even easier for fliers... they can just admit they've lost the edge and they'll be grounded immediately... They can't just walk away or quit as you put it... but if they want out there's a way... and it involves resigning a commission... Not now though, all out processing paperwork has been stopped for several weeks... I don't think anybodys being allowed to retire at this time... anyway, I was refering to more peaseful times... Officers do have it made compared to enlisted men... In my military experience, officers served because they chose to serve, much different from the majority of enlisted men who were draftees... - by: gottahitthecurveball

  • Re: Military Stress... - What has changed in 30 years? The pay of enlisted men is too low to support families... And the commissioned officers are the groups the military caters too, anyway... the camadrie and 'espirit de corp keeps many officers on active duty, at the expense of their wives and families... I completely sympathize with the plight of enlisted men, but an officer, in any branch of service, can resign his commission at any time and get a family-friendly job... being a former officer in the US military can be a bonus in seeking private sector employment... Your friends wife has a beef with her husband, not the navy... If he's a flier and an officer he could resign at anytime and come home... - by: gottahitthecurveball
  • Military Stress... - Contrary to the cheerleading of Rumsfeld there is growing dissatisfaction in the military. A friend of mine called last night to say her husband left her, the second friend this week and both for the same reason. You can't have a life when the military rufuses to let out you and gives you extended duty away from home. Though we all love to think of military families as Readers Digest characters, the truth is, these people are asking to make sacrafices the rest of us can't dream of. There are pilots that have been flying continious armed missions for ten years. In Kosovo and Bosnia, grunts patroll endlessly, and in Afganistan, the're are fighting a losing battle to control the countryside. A friend of mine in Virginia told me her husband is on a carrier and has no prospect of coming home. She told him not to bother... So we free Iraq and in the process, enslave our own people - by: empire2705

  • Walking Off Stress - Let's face it. You might have a car, a bicycle or a bus pass, but the number one means of transporation all and all is still walking. If you can accept this simple fact, then skip next paragraph. Walking keeps you healthy. Sometimes walking is the only means available as in inside buildings. Often it is a lot faster than the alternatives. See what Henry David Thoreau's formula for calculating trip time: he would include the price of the trip and the amount of time it takes you to earn that money. Don't forget to include the amount of time it takes you to maintain and park your car or to go to and from your bus. Additionally, with walking you can be much more certain of when you will arrive, because there are no issues of traffic and parking and missing buses and other weird transporation glitches. The certainty of walking saves time, as well, because you don't have to come early to avoid being late. But this isn't really what I'm here to talk about.

Insert the thin metal tip into the orbital frontal cortex and enter the soft tissue of the frontal lobe. A few simple, smooth, up and down jerks to sever the lateral lobes in the hypothalamus. This results in rapid reduction of stress. Can be done in less than two minutes.

How 'bout now? How 'bout now? Now?" - When waiting for a job interview and a fellow applicant is there, strike up a conversation. Then, when it's your turn to be interviewed, stand up and say, "See ya, sicko." Explain to the interviewer that he invited you to a goat-sex orgy. - If you find the "Notable Achievements" section of your résumé lacking, consider listing the longest rat-tail you've ever grown. - Avoid borrowing liberally from the plots of popular Tom Clancy and John LeCarré novels when describing previous j - by: my_name_is_meats

  • Speak Hindi or "Hinglish," - The plain truth is that government is allowing corporate America the privilege of racial segregation of the American workforce, for profit. If any US company hires nothing but white people they are deemed as racists or forced to hire ethnic people to fill racial quota's. Yet when they flip the coin on Americans, the end result is the same yet nobody views this as wrong, hurtful or a crime to the American work force ( hey, its all about money right ) Although complaining about it is a great stress relief it serves no purpose when the word is spread among mute ears and puppet intelligence. We need to get organized and start doing something about it or it will continue to spiral out of control.

  • Re: BUSH KILLED 1.3 MILLION IRAQI CHILDR - ...... As of October 2001, 1,010 contracts for humanitarian supplies, worth $3.85bn, were "on hold" by the Sanctions Committee. They included items related to food, health, water and sanitation, agriculture and education. This has now risen to goods worth more than $5bn. This is rarely reported in the West. When Denis Halliday was the senior United Nations official in Iraq, a display cabinet stood in the foyer of his office. It contained a bag of wheat, some congealed cooking oil, bars of soap and a few other household necessities. "It was a pitiful sight," he said, "and it represented the monthly ration that we were allowed to spend. I added cheese to lift the protein content, but there was simply not enough money left over from the amount we were allowed to spend, which came from the revenue Iraq was allowed to make from its oil."

  • Sanctions - Before 1990 and the imposition of sanctions, Iraq had one of the highest standards of living in the Middle East. Now Unicef reports that at least 200 children are dying every day. They are dying from malnutrition, a lack of clean water and a lack of medical equipment and drugs to cure easily treatable diseases. The current food ration, while nearly sufficient in calories, does not include enough vitamins, minerals and protein for health or growth. Malnutrition is now endemic amongst children. Diseases like kwashiorkor or marasmus are common in paediatric wards. Before 1990 the most important problem faced by Iraqi paediatricians was childhood obesity. Many sewage treatment plants were targets of the air strikes during the war. Others have since disintegrated without equipment and spare parts from abroad. Chlorine and other water purification chemicals are now banned under 'dual use' considerations. As a result children are dying of what should be treatabl - by: sterling_spurs

  • Vitamin A Day - A vitamin a day: 03/03/04 - A daily multivitamin may reduce the chances of getting ill, say US researchers, who find that diabetics could gain significant benefits from a daily vitamin. The study results, reported in this month's Annals of Internal Medicine, contradict last year's Oxford study which said taking vitamins was a waste of time. In a study of just over 100 adults living in North Carolina, people taking a daily multivitamin reported less infection, such as respiratory and urinary tract infections, influenza and gastrointestinal infections, and a lower rate of illness-related absenteeism, than those receiving a placebo. Striking results among those with diabetes had a significant effect on the overall results. A group of 130 adults aged over 45 years old took a multivitamin and mineral supplement or placebo daily for one year. The multivitamin was said to contain amounts of vitamins and minerals very similar to those found in most commercially avail - by: prince_ashargin

  • Re: Ritalin Use Up - Two things, both related. It seems that each time I have asked a parent whose kids are on drugs if they fully looked into other causes and treatments, they all say the same thing. "Yeah, the doctor RULED OUT everything else" Of course when I inquire further it has always been a very cursory effort. This is a problem. Doctors are going through various motions with no real effort to find any problem. They are only doing so to placate the parents or because they are supposed to while knowing that the kid is obviously ADHD. Ok, maybe only some doctors do this. Funny thing is, I have never once encountered a parent whose doctor found anything in this "ruling out" phase. I haven't talked with every single parent on the planet but I have talked to a lot. This comes about because the doctors believe that ADHD is something real. Again, I'm sure this is only some doctors. My other point is that you said, "They cared enough about him to put him through every last test you could think of to make an accura - by: Anti_psych

  • Re: Best Protein - Blue october I tried Herbalife for just short of a year. I admit the first few months I didn't follow real well. Just did the business. The last five months or so , I got serious about the weightloss and have had NO SUCCESS what so ever. Thats when I started reading these message boards. Started doing what people like enlightenedtodd and a few others suggested. Now I am seeing results. Eat better and more often and excersise. More fruits and veggies and 4-5 times a day(small meals). I am never hungry. I was ALWAYS hungry with Herbalife. Saw no future money wise there either.I have compared labels for Herbalife shake mix with standard ones at the store. The have more protein , vitamins, minerals etc. Their multivitamins are very week also. As for the value of soy , if you would like I will email the article to you. I apoligze to everyone , I didn't mean to get off on a rant about Herbalife. They just left a sour taste in my mouth, and I see t - by: trobe68

  • Re: MTEX Competitors ? - <<"...you are defining competitors as those which are MLM and which market some form of dietary supplement.">> Basically, yes... I am considering competitors as those entities who are competing FOR THE SAME dollars/pesos that are available in a particular marketplace. While my list of companies were MLM's, I would not limit competitors to just those MLM's I listed... nor to just, strictly MLM's, period! In Mexico, close to 3/4ths of its population is trying to exist on barely US$3 per day, and that includes the necessities of shelter, food, clothing, utilities, education, transportation, and medical. There are few consumers with enough funds for discretionary spending... the source of pesos needed for buying mannastuff, or any health or wellness-type product or service. Less than 10% of their population can afford ALL the wellness stuff that's out there. The remaining 15% - 20%, sort of their middle-class, will enjoy some discretionary spending ability, but will h - by: when_rnan_speaks

Some genius up there is saying that if a child drinks 8 cokes a day he will probably be an obease adult. These two bozo's went to Miami to refute the Harvard study. My feeling is that Coca-Cola is totally out of touch with their mission when they pay attention to crap like this. The two executives who went obviously aren't contributing anything to the bottom line. Let's get rid of them and the bozo who approved the travel and use the savings to increase the dividend. My reply to the Miami Herald is below: Suggest you ask the noted "non contributors" from Coca-Cola what in the world they are doing? No one expects Coca-Cola to supplement the health department.

  • #2 - With conventional biomass extraction, the manufacturing process is designed to extract, isolate and purify paclitaxel from yew biomass leaving behind other components, including non-paclitaxel taxanes. However, the extraction, isolation and purification processes are complicated because there are more than 100 different taxanes present in yew biomass. In a semi synthesis process, the initial extraction, isolation and purification is similar to that of the conventional biomass extraction process, except that the process not only isolates paclitaxel, but also other taxanes (which would otherwise be waste byproducts) and converts these other taxanes into paclitaxel. By converting other taxanes into paclitaxel, the semi synthesis process increases the yield of paclitaxel from the same quantity of biomass. Regardless of which process is used, the final product must meet acceptable impurity criteria. The current market rate for paclitaxel ranges from $250,000-$500,000 per kilo. The  -
