Enjoy or Avoid: The Thanksgiving Edition

So Thanksgiving is literally just around the corner, and while the holidays are a great time to enjoy good food with family, you still might be wondering what are the healthiest options when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner.

INEVO has compiled a list of foods you can enjoy and foods to avoid, but we want to say this, if there is something you really want to enjoy Thanksgiving day, then allow yourself to splurge. Everyone deserves it, but just remember, everything in moderation! Enjoy and have a very happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoy: “White” meat turkey; Avoid: “Dark” meat turkey

  •  3 ounces of “white” turkey breast will save you around 50 calories and 4 grams of fat from its darker counterpart. The white meat turkey has around 115 calories and 7 grams of fat, while the dark meat has around 160 calories and 11 grams of fat.

Enjoy: Green bean casserole; Avoid: Sweet potato casserole

  • Traditional green bean casserole, including the creamy mushroom soup and crispy fried onions is around 161 calories and 9 grams of fat for every 3/4 of a cup, which is a lighter side than sweet potato casserole that has around 285 calories and 5 grams of fat for every 3/4 of a cup. If you can’t say no to the sweet potato casserole, don’t feel too bad. It is still full of good nutrients including beta carotene and vitamin A.

Enjoy: Pumpkin pie; Avoid: Apple pie

  • Pumpkin pie is the better choice with 216 calories and 14 grams of fat per slice (around 1/8 of a 9 inch pie). Apple pie, on the other hand, has 411 calories and 19 grams of fat for the same-size slice.

Health and Fitness at INEVO

INEVO is dedicated to helping people look and feel better. We believe there are 3 components to fitness, and it’s important to incorporate all three to boost your metabolism, shed pounds and restore energy!

  • Component 1: Aerobic and cardiovascular activity  – These exercises support heart and lung health, and they are the best types of exercise to melt away your belly fat.
  • Component 2: Strength training – It is an important component that many people don’t do when they are trying to lose weight. Strength training helps increase muscle tissue while boosting your metabolism.
  • Component 3: Stretching Exercises – These exercises improve your flexibility, increase circulation and relieve stress.

Let’s look at the first component, aerobic and cardiovascular activity, a little bit closer! Cardio exercises are a fun way to get your heart pumping, but after awhile running, spinning or watching that same workout tape again can get boring.

Also, it’s important to note that too much repetition in your workout will slow down your results because you will begin to plateau. It’s important to add a little variety, which will also give muscle groups a chance to recover on their days off!

So how can you spice up your card routine and maximize your workout? Below are two great new card exercises that you should try!

  •   Zumba: This high-energy card routine is becoming all the rage, and if you haven’t tried it yet – well, you should! It is a dance workout that combines latin dances (Salsa, Merengue and Reggaeton) with fun club-like music! Zumba incorporates squats, kicks, lunges and plenty of other moves to get your heart pumping and feet moving!
  • Cardio Kickboxing: This exercise is a combination of martial arts, boxing and traditional card movements. This includes nonstop bobbing and weaving, punching, high-kicks and so much more. After this intense workout, you’ll definitely feel the burn!

The LipoLaser and Belly Fat

Written by Darren Dubyak D.C.
* Dr. Dubyak, of Peak Performance Chiropractic and Nutrition Center, is continually helping people reach their healthcare goals.  He is proud to offer total health and wellness solutions, including: chiropractic care, nutrition counseling, rehabilitation, Disc Decompression Therapy and LipoLaser sessions. To learn more, please visit his website at: www.drdubyak.com.

What is the LipoLaser?
Our LipoLaser is an innovative and revolutionary technology, offering clients an easy, painless and effective way to lose belly fat and contour their bodies. Compared to surgical liposuction, this non-invasive treatment requires no needles, is more affordable and provides similar results.

How does it work?
The LipoLaser paddles emit low levels of energy, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol. The free fatty acids are converted into energy, while water and glycerol are released through natural metabolic functions. This process is a normal response, which means no unnatural reaction is created during the LipoLaser sessions.

What makes the LipoLaser different?
The Lipolaser paddles are placed directly on the skin, which allows for targeted belly fat reduction and results in substantial body contouring improvements. By utilizing the LipoLaser to target specific areas of the body, we can contour, shape and melt away the stubborn inches that are resistant to diet and exercise.
