5 Slim Secrets You Learned in Kindergarten

Flashback to the days of enjoying peanut butter power snacks at the kitchen table and hitting the monkey bars on the playground until Mom reeled you in for an early bedtime. Doesn’t your 5-year-old self sound like the ultimate health coach? Turns out, she is. “Children are inherently self-regulating. They listen to their hunger cues, they indulge without guilt and they’re incapable of sitting still,” says Keri Gans, RDN, author of The Small Change Diet. “These are all healthy lifestyle practices that would serve us well in adulthood, if we implemented them.” With that in mind, we pinned down which kiddie habits are surefire ways to stay in shape, and how to make them work in your grown-up life.RELATED: 25 Surprising Ways to Lose WeightListen to your stomachWhen kids are hungry, they eat. When they’re full, they stop. “We’re born wired to obey our appetite, but somewhere along the way, those wires get crossed,” says Gans. Introduce stress, hormones—even boredom— and most of us end up able to list “professional plate cleaner” on our résumés.The Adult Spin: Reprogram how you gauge your appetite. “For a day or two, dont pay attention to the clock and eat only when you truly feel hungry, not when you think you should eat or just want to,” says Jennifer McDaniel, RD, owner of McDaniel Nutrition Therapy in Clayton, Mo. “Eat slowly, really chewing each bite, so you’re able to hear your body tell you when its getting full.”Play with your foodAs every mom knows, kids bring the mess to the dinner table. But there are benefits to getting hands-on with food: One study out of Eastern Illinois University found that when eating pistachios, people who shelled the nuts themselves ate roughly 86 fewer calories’ worth than those who gobbled up ones that were already shelled. “When you eat with your hands, you’re more aware of everything you put in your mouth. It’s more of an engaged, sensory experience than just absentmindedly bringing your fork to your lips over and over,” says Wendy Bazilian, DrPH, author of Eat Clean, Stay Lean. The Adult Spin: Have a laborintensive (in a good way) side dish or snack every day, suggests Bazilian. Get in there with pods, shrimp in shells, roasted shishito peppers and pomegranates.Make a meal of dessertThe more children are cut off from sweets, the more they want them, studies show. The same goes for adults, points out Libby Mills, RDN, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “That feeling of deprivation can deflate motivation, making it harder to stick to your diet,” she says. And ignoring sugar cravings can lead you to eat more, she adds: “You have one treat, and then you can’t stop because it’s such a rarity and has become too important.” The Adult Spin: Candycoat parts of your meals, so to speak, in order to satisfy your sweet tooth in moderation. Try a Greek yogurt parfait for lunch, layered with fruit and some granola, or indulge in a thin slice of carrot cake with fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt instead of frosting…

A Smart Guide To Scary Chemicals

– www.health.com

“Scientists issue warning over chemicals in carpets, coats, cookware.” “chemicals in pizza boxes may be health risk.”Headlines like these make you want to curl up on the sofa and never leave the house—except that couch! Chances are it’s loaded with toxic chemicals, too. As a savvy, health-conscious (and, OK, slightly worry-prone) woman, how are you supposed to function in a world where everything from the dust bunnies in your home to your ATM receipt could be poisoning you?First, some perspective: Yes, chemicals are everywhere, and some are undoubtedly harmful. But linking a health issue, whether it’s breast cancer or premature births, to specific substances is difficult. “We’re exposed to so many chemicals—some potentially hazardous, some not—and often health problems take months or years to develop. That makes it tricky to identify the culprit,” explains Tracey Woodruff, PhD, director of the Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).Moreover, the average person’s exposure to any one toxin is relatively low, as is her individual health risk. The potential peril of, say, eating microwave popcorn pales in comparison to smoking, which is directly responsible for 30 percent of cancer deaths, says Margaret Kripke, PhD, professor emerita at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and co-author of the President’s Cancer Panel report on environmental cancer risk.RELATED: 9 Ways to Detox Your HomeThat said, developing fetuses, infants and children are more vulnerable to chemicals’ effects. In fact, this fall, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics issued a report sounding an alarm about the serious health effects of exposure to toxic chemicals during pregnancy and breast-feeding.Whether you have little ones or not, it’s smart to understand the science behind the most buzzed-about chemicals. We talked to top scientists and analyzed the research to find out what you should really be concerned about and how you can protect yourself and the planet.Flame retardants (including polybrominated diphenyl ethers, or PDBEs)What are they?In the 1970s, California instituted strict flammability standards for upholstered furniture sold in the state, leading manufacturers to add flame-retardant chemicals to the foam used in furniture sold throughout the U.S. Today these chemicals—designed to inhibit the spread of fire—are in chairs, sofas, cars, commercial airplanes and infant car seats. A typical sofa contains three or more pounds of treated foam.RELATED: Here’s Where You Can Buy a Couch Without Flame RetardantsWhat’s the worry?Because the flame retardants are sprayed on rather than chemically bonded to the product, the molecules migrate out of the products and collect in household dust, where they get on our hands and, inevitably, into our mouths and bodies, says Philip Landrigan, MD, a pediatrician and dean for global health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City…

Lindsey Vonn: "You Don't Have to Be a Size 2 to Be Beautiful"

– health.com

“You guys, did you hear that somebody was murdered in the basement here?” Lindsey Vonn asks her cover shoot glam squad, who are gathered in the kitchen of California’s famous Sowden House, the rumored site of the unsolved 1947 murder of Elizabeth Short, aka the Black Dahlia.Fortunately, Lindsey—the four-time World Cup champion and Olympic gold medal-winning skier—is bringing some positive energy to the alleged crime scene. She is in a good place: Her recent ankle injury (more on that later) is fully healed, she just took a much-needed girls’ vacation, and she’s been training her butt off—with the 2018 Winter Olympics, in South Korea, firmly in sight.A competitive skier by the age of 10, Lindsey is used to growing up in the spotlight. But recently, the 31-year-old has had to endure a new level of public scrutiny, thanks to a nearly three-year romance with pro golfer Tiger Woods that ended in May 2015. While the tabloids speculate about her love life, she chooses to focus on her actual passion: The Lindsey Vonn Foundation, which she launched this year to help empower girls. Turns out, girl power is very much on her mind these days.You’ve been spending more time on the red carpet. Do you feel comfortable out there?At first it’s kind of awkward standing there while people take pictures of you; now it’s fun—although I definitely don’t fit in on the red carpet.RELATED: Check out Lindsey’s intense lower-body workoutWhat do you mean?I’m, like, twice the size of anyone, in both height and weight! I’m five-foot-ten, but I’m definitely quite a bit heavier than everyone else. I feel like the odd man out sometimes, but that’s even more reason to be confident, to show girls that you don’t have to be a size 2 to be beautiful. Any size is beautiful as long as you’re confident in yourself.You’ve worked hard at putting out that message, especially with your foundation.I’m really proud of it. I’ve always wanted to start my own foundation, but with skiing I didn’t think I had the time to do both. I don’t ever want to do something and not put all my energy into it. But when I got hurt the second time, it was honestly a blessing in disguise because it gave me the opportunity. We’ve got scholarships, camps. The main goal is to teach young girls about self-esteem and teamwork.Have you ever experienced body image issues?It’s kind of funny because before I was 17, I was incredibly skinny. I was made fun of and called “chicken” and “chicken wings”—I was super tall and probably weighed 30 pounds less than I do now. Then I gained weight because my metabolism slowed down, and I kind of was on the other end of the spectrum. I’m normal-size, but when I started to do well and do events and photo shoots, I felt like I was too big.Any advice for women reading this who might be having body image issues?The most important thing is to eat healthy. When I’m eating really clean and splurge on something really sugary, I feel like I’m gonna vomit. So eat what your body wants, and try to be as active as you can…

Turning 40 Inspired Me to Lose 75 Pounds

– health.com

Jennifer Lasher 41, 5’6″ Hauppauge, N.Y. Before: 210 lb.Dress size: 16 After: 135 lb. Dress size: 6 Total pounds lost: 75 lb. Sizes lost: 5 Growing up Italian, I had carb-heavy meals as the usual dinner fare. And while I exercised at times in high school and college, my weight would continually flip-flop: down a few pounds one month, then back up two months later. Once I married and had kids, any interest in going to the gym was gone; the baby weight never went away. By March 2013, I was 210 pounds, my highest ever, and it struck me that I would soon be 40, overweight and unhappy. So I decided it was time to drop the weight for good.RELATED: 16 Ways to Lose Weight FastReal food = real energyUsing all the healthy lifestyle tips I’d learned from magazines and my girlfriends, I cleaned up my diet, swapping deli sandwiches with high-sodium meat and mayo for Tupperware containers of big butter-lettuce salads topped with carrots, walnuts, feta and homemade dressing. Tracking everything I ate held me accountable, and I found that ditching processed foods left me with more energy, a clear head and better skin, too.Couch to 26.2Next, I tackled a longtime goal: running. I had wanted to start my entire life, but I never had the confidence to lace up my sneakers. With a friend, I slowly moved from power walking to hitting the trails for 10-milers. It was overwhelming at first—I was often out of breath—but I quickly gained strength. Thanks also to my healthy eating, I dropped 35 pounds in four months. I reached my goal weight of 140 in September 2014, and now I’m happily at 135 pounds! I’m even running my first marathon next May. I’m not out there to break any records, just to run and love it.RELATED: 15 Eating Habits That Make You Live LongerJennifer’s Weight-Loss JournalTo lose big, Jennifer got advice from friends.

4 Ways Your Pet Makes Your Life Better

– www.health.com

Just as human friends can make you happy in the deepest ways, so too can the furry variety, research shows. “One of my earliest studies found that dog owners are as emotionally close to their dogs as they are to their closest family member,” says Sandra Barker, PhD, professor of psychiatry at Virginia Commonwealth University and director of the university’s Center for Human-Animal Interaction. While your sister might not be pleased to hear that, it’s good to know that pet ownership has many benefits—like the ones here.RELATED: The Best Pets For Your Health1. They keep your stress in checkWhen your dog starts wagging his tail, it’s hard to obsess about that pile of work you just left on your desk. In fact, in one of Barker’s studies, her team had people complete a stressful task, then measured their brain waves, blood pressure, heart rate, salivary cortisol and self-reported stress after 30 minutes with their own dog or a therapy dog. “We saw a consistent pattern of stress reduction across all measures,” says Barker. “Other researchers have found reduced stress in owners interacting with their dogs after stressful tasks, compared with interacting with friends and spouses.”2. They get you movingEspecially if you have a pup. “Dogs require at least 30 minutes of exercise a day,” says Ernie Ward, DVM, founder of the Association for Pet Obesity and Prevention, “and that just so happens to be about how many minutes humans need, too.” Dog owners are 34 percent more likely to meet federal guidelines for exercise, according to a 2011 study in the Journal of Physical Activity and Health. And exercise is a proven mood booster: In a Norwegian study, people who exercised had better mental health than those who were sedentary. Another study suggested that walking briskly for 30 minutes could have a significant impact on mild to moderate depression symptoms.RELATED: 13 Fun Ways to Work Out With Your Dog3. They combat lonelinessIn the age of FOMO, having a pet to keep you company can prevent that “Am I the only one who doesn’t have plans tonight?” feeling. “Researchers have found a reduction in loneliness in pet-owning women living alone, while others have seen reduced loneliness in nursing home residents after animal-assisted activities,” says Barker. But then, if you’re an animal lover, you don’t need us to tell you about that comfort you get when you’re working late into the night and your cat cozies up by your side, or when your dog gleefully greets you after a long, solitary commute.4. They boost your confidenceSure, getting a promotion at work can give your self-image a lift—but so can owning a dog. According to one study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, dog owners scored higher in certain well-being categories, including self-esteem, than nonowners. “Because pets can decrease loneliness, anxiety and depression, there’s a good chance dog owners will feel more self-assured,” explains Barker. The same authors also found that when faced with social rejection, dog owners were better able to stay upbeat—and keep negative feelings at bay…

Self-Compassion: The New Secret to Being Slim, Fit, and Happy for Life

– www.health.com

You ate a cupcake at the office birthday party (even though you swore you wouldn’t). You skipped the gym to go home and watch TV (can’t resist those Real Housewives!). And now you’re beating yourself up for it, right? We know, because we’ve all been there. It’s become far too common for us to mentally punish ourselves this way, thinking we’ll feel shamed into better behavior, observes Kristin Neff, PhD, associate professor of educational psychology at the University of Texas at Austin.But being our own worst Mean Girl is counterproductive. According to research in the burgeoning new field of self-compassion, a little TLC may go a lot further in motivating you to work out, lose weight, and get healthier overall. “Self-compassion means being kind to yourself, especially when you make a mistake,” explains Neff, author of Self-Compassion: Stop Beating Yourself Up and Leave Insecurity Behind. “As it turns out, caring about yourself is one of the best possible motivators for doing what’s healthy for you rather than what’s harmful to you.”As you’d expect, quitting the trash talk makes you feel good. In fact, brain-imaging scans done on Buddhist monks by University of Wisconsin neuroscientists suggest that self-compassion lessens anxiety and depression. But surprisingly, being kind to yourself also has a concrete effect on your behavior and physical well-being. “Studies show that self-compassionate people are more proactive about looking after themselves,” says Duke University professor of psychology and neuroscience Mark Leary, PhD, who’s been involved with much of the research in this field. “They’re more likely to take vitamins, practice safe sex, and go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Read on to see how you can score big health gains by giving yourself a break.Boost motivationMost people play drill sergeant with themselves: “I have to go to Spinning every day this week!” But using phrases like have to and setting too-strict goals are a recipe for falling short—and feeling lousy about it. In a study published in the journal Motivation and Emotion, participants who forgave themselves for failing at a task were more likely to pick themselves up and try again. “They didn’t let that one failure define them,” Neff says. “When you criticize yourself, you undermine your self-confidence, which is a huge part of motivation.”

Next Page: Love yourself, lose weight

Try this: Encourage yourself the way you would a friend, with positive statements like: “If I go to Spinning, I’ll feel great, and I’ll probably fit into my jeans better, too.” Neff says: “Motivate yourself to do the right thing not because you’re inadequate, but because you want to be healthier, or land your dream job, or whatever your goal is. Keep your eyes on the prize, which is to be happy.” Lose weightA 2007 study shows how going easier on yourself can actually help you drop pounds: In it, Leary and a co-author asked two groups of women to eat doughnuts…

Jillian Michaels: "I Don't Believe in All or Nothing"

I’m guilty: I snooped around Jillian Michaels’ dressing room. I was left alone for a few minutes while she filmed part of her new show, Sweat Inc., and I spied something far too tempting to ignore: her stash of snacks.After all, the fitness entrepreneur, 41, is a powerhouse, and I wanted to know what fuel she’s putting in her machine. Her snacks include organic brown rice crackers; dry roasted, salted almonds; and root vegetable chips.And, boy, does Jillian need to keep her energy up. In addition to this show, which debuts on Spike TV this month, she’s shooting an E! channel docuseries, Just Jillian, that captures her life at work and at home with her partner, Heidi Rhoades, and their two kids, Lukensia, 5, and Phoenix, 3, set to air in January. She’s also busy writing a new book for mothers-to-be, Hot Mom, Healthy Baby, and has just launched a fresh-food line called Slim Soul (in select supermarkets). And that’s on top of the Impact fitness wear she created for Kmart. Jillian is still in full exercise garb because she’s just finished a workout on camera—but despite the name of her show, she isn’t breaking a sweat. “I take better care of my body now than I did at 20,” Jillian says as we walk across set to grab lunch. “I got kids. I’m like, ‘I need to be around for a while!'”RELATED: Where to Buy the Cool Clothes Jillian Michaels Is Wearing in Our October IssueBack in her dressing room, she sits cross-legged on the floor. Diving into salad and ravioli, Jillian shatters some myths about working out and offers seriously practical advice on leaning in to get the body and life we deserve.I notice you’re not eating any of the grilled chicken.I don’t eat a ton of meat. I have grass-fed beef once a week, and farmed shrimp and ocean-caught salmon, and sometimes some sole or tuna. I’m looking at the planet and really starting to see how our food policy and food practices are destroying the world. Even grass-fed beef is so bad for the planet. And we’re fishing out the oceans.Do you cook at home?We’re terrible cooks! Well, Heidi is a good cook, but she doesn’t have a ton of time. I am a terrible chef, so I hate to admit this, but one of the things we do is have a couple of restaurants that feed us—literally. The more I work out, the more carbs I need. I stopped eating sugar in December. Carbs, yes, but straight sugar, no.Is there one food rule you think we should all follow?I don’t believe in all or nothing. I think the key contents are: Don’t overeat, avoid chemicals as often as possible and…that’s it.RELATED: Transform Your Body in 4 Weeks With Jillian’s 7-Move Circuit WorkoutAnd of course people always want to know what one move is best for the whole body.
