Helpful Weightloss Tips For Work

Work can be the most danagerous place when trying to lose weight. The smallest decisions you make at work can have a big impact on your weigh, it can either help burn more calories or pack on stealthy extra pounts.

Take Conference Calls Standing

Sitting eight hours a day at work is a metabolic death sentence that burns as little as 25 calories per hour. Bump up your calorie burn by taking phone calls standing (pacing is even better). By just standing you can burn up to 75 more calories per hour. If you are on conference calls or phone meetings as little as 45 minutes each day and you stand instead sit, you’ll burn an extra 280 calories per week – the calorie equivalent of running an two and three quarter miles per week.

Bring a Satiety Shake Work

Food found around the office is horrible. From the refined carbohydrates in the vending machines to the doughnuts in the break room, to the chocolate and candy bowl by the receptionist – it is a nutritional landmine for anyone trying to lose weight. Instead of letting hunger get the best of you pack a Satiety Shake in your bag before you leave the house. In a blender combine chia seeds, protein powder, walnuts, blueberries, water, and a couple ice cubes. Blend it up, put it in a shaker or Rubermaid Chug bottle and bring it to work with you. The chia seeds contain fiber, which helps slow how fast you digest food, making you feel fuller longer. The protein powder and fats from the walnuts will also increase your feeling of fullness. Blueberries contain low impact carbohydrates, which keep your blood sugar controlled providing you long lasting energy—without gaining fat. An added benefit of blueberries is that their antioxidants have been shown to improve mood.

Don’t Eat at your Desk

When it is time to eat, just eat. Multi-tasking while eating will cause you to eat more and leave you less satisfied once you get back to work. A study recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that when study participants used a computer while eating they did not feel as full following their meal. In addition, when offered a snack 45 minutes later, they ate more calories than the people who didn’t play on their computers while eating lunch. The lesson: Turn off your monitor or, even better, get away from you desk so that you can enjoy your lunch without multi-taking distractions. You’ll feel more satisfied and you’ll be less likely to have a mid-afternoon urge to devour the bowl of chocolates at the receptionist’s desk.

Intro to Thanksgiving for the Newlyweds

Intro to Thanksgiving for the Newlyweds
1. How to pick the perfect turkey.
a. Seven different types of whole turkeys
i. Frozen-
1. The cheapest and most widely available.
2. Drawbacks: you’ll need considerable time to thaw in the refrigator and may be injeced with salt solution to keep moist.
ii. Fresh
iii. Natural
1. Minimally processed, with no artificial ingredients or coloring added
iv. Organic
1. Turkey has been fed organically grown feed all their lives and never treated with antibiotics.
2. Many small growers and free-range growers follow organic practices, but may or may not be certified organic.
v. Free-range
1. Means an animal is allowed to be outside at least part of the time.
vi. Heritage
1. According to the American Livestock Breed Conservancy, heritage turkeys must mate naturally; have a long outdoor lifespan, and a slow growth rate.
2. They tend to be smaller than commercially bred turkeys, with more evenly distributed meat and a stronger turkey flavor
vii. Kosher
1. Prepared under rabbinical supervision.
2. Many people like the flavorful poultry that often results from the salting that is part of koshering meat.
2. How much turkey to buy.
a. A good rule of thumb is to buy 1 pound of turkey per person to allow for seconds and leftovers. So if you're having 8 guests for Thanksgiving, you'll need an 8-pound bird. You know your crowd best, so buy the size that fits your needs.
3. Turkey Defrosting Tips
a. The best–and safest–defrosting method is to set the bird in a shallow pan in the refrigerator for 24 hours per 5 pounds of turkey. Keep in mind you'll need to save room in the refrigerator as this will take several days. The turkey is fully thawed when the thick part of the turkey registers 40 degrees.
4. Roasting turkey for beginners.
a. The key to roasting a perfect turkey is the temperature; you want moist, juicy meat on the inside and a crisp exterior. Keep your meat thermometer close by to ensure the bird reaches a safe internal temperature of between 165 and 180 degrees. An average 12-pound turkey with giblets will take around three hours to cook at 325 degrees.
5. Deconstructing turkey carving.
a. The whole turkey looks amazing but taking slices from the outsides of the breast can be very difficult.
