Healthy Living: “Trim the Fat” From Your Thanksgiving Meal

Written by Lisa Jillanza

When people start to consider weight management, experts will say that healthy eating is just as important as fitness.

With the largest meal that many will indulge in this year looming right around the corner, here are some ways that you can “trim the fat” from your Thanksgiving meal this year. 

  • Get enough sleep before the holiday. More and more studies have shown that sleep can impact hormone levels that control hunger and fullness. If you don’t get enough sleep, there is a higher chance of overeating and increased cravings.
  • Don’t arrive hungry to dinner. Eat a light meal earlier in the day, incorporating protein and healthy fats, to help you feeling fuller longer which will help with overindulging later on when the full meal is ready.
  • Follow the 50/25/25 rule. This rule created by the USDA suggested that you divide your plate with 50% fruits and vegetables, 25% protein and 25% grains, preferably whole grains.
  • Limit your liquid calories. Don’t waste your calories on sugary beverages and excessive alcohol. Stay hydrated with water throughout your meal and stick to one or two glasses of wine.
  • Keep your vegetables simple if you are the one making the food. Ditch the “candied” or butter-laden vegetables and opt for some steamed varieties instead.
  • Enjoy the company. Oftentimes if you are busy talking and catching up with loved ones, you won’t have time to overeat and overindulge.

Food for Thought: Best Fall Foods for Weight Loss

Written by Lisa Jillanza

Eating seasonal foods can help you meet your weight loss goals by encouraging variety in your diet and increasing the level of nutrients you get throughout the day—and the fall season brings a unique list of foods to try.

Here are some of the best fall foods that you can eat to help you lose weight:

Winter squash – winter squash like butternut, acorn, and spaghetti squash are perfect additions to your fall meals. Plus, with fiber and nutrients, these squashes offer a lower-calorie alternative to other carbohydrates.

Apples – apples are a great weight-loss food for the fall because they are naturally sweet and high in fiber. Fiber helps you to stay full faster and longer, helping you to manage your portions.

Oatmeal – the benefits are many with tons of fiber, nutrients, and prebiotic properties, oatmeal is one of the best fall foods for weight loss.

Canned pumpkin – canned pumpkin is not only delicious, but it’s extremely low in calories and sodium and has 4 grams of fiber and 1 gram of protein per serving.

Want to try a delicious smoothie that uses canned pumpkin and helps you sneak in some extra nutrients. Try this one out!

  • 1 scoop plant-based vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 cup frozen peach slices
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 5 ice cubes

Put it all in a blender. Blend and enjoy!

Food for Thought: Overcoming Obesity

Written by Lisa Jillanza

Any way you look at it the statistics regarding obesity are unbelievable…


In the U.S., 55% of adults are overweight, nearly 25% are obese. 

Each year there are approximately 280,000 deaths in the U.S. that can be attributed to obesity. 

There is no longer any doubt that the most widespread and the largest threat to our health is being overweight or obese. 

And while these statistics are shocking to most, there are still as many as 80 million people in the United States dealing with obesity. 

What experts are trying to get across to these millions of people who are dealing daily with this disease is that obesity is not going to cure itself overnight.   There is not a magic pill that someone can take that will reverse the toll we have taken on our bodies over the years.

There is not a magic pill that someone can take that will reverse the toll we have taken on our bodies over the years.

We, as a society, need to learn that losing weight and keeping that weight off is a commitment – a lifelong commitment – and something that won’t come easy to many people. 

Weight loss is not a short-term goal.  Instead it is a long-term lifestyle change that you must be ready to take on before you start any type of diet or fitness regimen. 

Keep in mind there are plenty of support groups out there that will help you get you where you need to be as far as diet and fitness goals and most importantly: don’t give up!
