Interesting research here You’re more likely to eat fast food more regularly If you’re able to delay instant gratification you may be less likely to regularly eat fast food. A study in the journal Preventative Medicine investigated the responses of 5,871 US adults to a survey about lifestyle including intakes and frequency of fast food. In addition to this the respondents were asked if they would prefer an immediate payment of $10 or a delayed payment of a larger amount of up to $18. The authors found those willing to wait for the larger amount ate fast food less frequently. The researchers suggest that this knowledge about lifestyle behaviours could be used to help people trying to lose we.i.ght or improve their diets. Try to keep your blood sugar levels stable by eating regularly, and make sure your meal and snacks combine protein with carbohydrates to keep you full for longer. You are more likely to make healthier food choices if you are not ravenous. Mary Carmody Nutrition - Always Promoting a Healthier You Always

Did you know your MIGRAINE triggers may be lurking in your food? Your migraines could be triggered by what you are eating and drinking. A recent two-part review in Headache: The Journal of Head and Face Pain examined the cause of headaches. Caffeine turns out to be a big trigger for headaches according to study author Vincent Martin. MSG (monosodiumglutamate), a flavour enhancer found in processed foods and seasonings, is also very clearly linked, especially when consumed in liquids. Martin suggests eating more natural foods (fresh fruit and vegetables) to avoid MSG. Nitrates from processed meats such as bacon, ham and sausages are likely to bring on migraine attacks in sufferers as well. As well as including fresh fruit and vegetables in your diet, the study shows that ensuring you have plenty of omega 3s can be helpful. To achieve this increase oily fish to 3 times a week (salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines and anchovies), and include plenty of flaxseed and walnuts too. Minimise omega 6s like sunflower, corn and soya oils, as they can be inflammatory. Get your food intolerances check also with an accurate food intolerance test like the Lorisian test which I do at my clinic.to see if you have any foods not agreeing with you. Happy Monday !!

Do you have high Cholesterol ?? Increase HDL cholesterol through diet There are better ways to tackle high cholesterol than statins and spreads containing cholesterol-lowering plant sterols. Dr Ioannis Zabetakis from the University of Limerick has been researching the effects of statins and lowering total cholesterol. He suggests that the current obsession with lowering cholesterol using statins could be linked to the rise in inflammation, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, HIV, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Instead of statins Dr Zabetakis recommends a bespoke nutrition programme based on the Mediterranean diet which would increase good cholesterol and lower inflammation with fish, olive oil, fruit, vegetables and nuts. Stay healthy naturally !!. Mary Carmody Nutrition - Always Promoting a Healthier You

Small amounts of weekly exercise lowers your risk of cervical cancer It’s cervical cancer prevention week so this is my focus for today’s health tip. As little as 30 minutes of exercise weekly could lower your risk of cervical cancer. An American study published in the Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease covered 128 patients diagnosed with cervical cancer and 512 who were not yet diagnosed. 31.1% of the women diagnosed with cervical cancer reported inactivity - defined as less than four sessions of exercise a month. The results showed women who were not physically active were two and a half times more likely to develop cancer compared to women that exercised. By now we all know that exercise is important for health and wellbeing but the message of this study is clear: Even a small amount of exercise (30 minutes weekly) could be enough to prevent cervical cancer. Go for a walk in your lunch hour, join a dance class, leave yourself enough time to walk places rather than driving or taking public transport.

A common problem for women who over-exercise This is probably not a problem for most of us, but it is possible – in theory – to exercise too much. If you over-exercise, your muscles produce lactic acid, which contributes to an over-acidic body. So BALANCE and MODERATION are the key words. Intensive training in younger women, say as athletes or ballet dances, can cause a loss of body fat and often the menstrual cycle can stop. Their high level of activity can mean that they never reach their peak bone density and are at a very high risk of osteoporosis. The high incidence of anorexia in these women leads to amenorrhoea (no periods) and an increased risk of osteoporosis. This cycle is called the ‘female athletic triad’ and involves three factors: anorexia, amenorrhoea and osteoporosis. Mary Carmody Nutrition - Always Promoting a Healthier You
Anti ageing Vitamins !!! This vitamin could lessen the appearance of wrinkles in 12 weeks Don't put all of your faith in expensive face creams - diet is a factor too. The nutrient co-enzyme Q10 may reduce the appearance of wrinkles: Research published in journal Biofactors described a 12-week study where 32 people (in good health) were assigned to one of three groups - placebo, a low dose of co-enzyme Q10 (50mg) and a higher dose of co-enzyme Q10 (150mg). It was found that both the low dose and higher dose of CoQ10 gave a noticeable effect but there was a more visible difference with the higher dose. If you’re concerned about ageing it’s worth taking a good quality supplement with co-enzyme Q10 plus it’s really important to make sure your diet is packed with fruit and vegetables. Fruit and vegetables are full of antioxidants that help support healthy ageing. Make sure to eat what is in season as much as possible though! Please share this tip with people who you feel would benefit from this and many more of my health tips. Mary Carmody Nutrition - Always Promoting a Healthier You
