With tomorrow being a HUGE “food holiday” you’re most likely going to have some leftovers that will be round two of the Thanksgiving feast.  If you don’t want to have the same dishes a second day then here are some healthy ideas for leftovers that should help keep you full and feeling well.

These sites offer a variety of leftover ideas that can be made “as-is” or with simple healthy substitutions to keep your diet on track:

Some simple healthy substitutions that still taste great:

  1. Serve yogurt based dips and raw vegetables instead of full-fat dips with cheese and crackers
  2. Opt for wine spritzers instead of other higher calorie options
  3. Have white meat instead of dark to save some fat and calories
  4. Make your own stuffing/dressing so you can control the ingredients
  5. Roast vegetables instead of cooking then in a sugary sauce
  6. Make low-fat gravy with broth, herbs, and non-fat milk
  7. Skip cranberry “sauce” and have cranberry “relish” instead
  8. Eat fresh green beans lightly sautéed in a little bit of butter with sliced onions and almonds
  9. Try having whole wheat rolls instead of white
  10. Avoid calorie laden pecan or fruit pies and have pumpkin pie

No matter what you eat tomorrow keep in mind that moderation is the key to sustained weight loss and enjoy time with family, friends, and good food.  Happy Thanksgiving!

What holiday doesn’t involve food?  Well, this Thursday is a MAJOR food holiday and with it the potential to really undo any healthy eating plan you’ve diligently devoted yourself to.  There are, however, some simple “swaps” for the common dishes of the Thanksgiving meal that aren’t too difficult to make and still taste delicious.  With a little bit of preparation and some creativity you can lessen the fat and calories you consume and still enjoy all the flavor and variety.

Here are some simple trade-offs to aid in the swap:

Swap This…                                                    For This…

Dark Meat Turkey (fried w/skin)                    White Meat Turkey (baked, skinless)

Traditional Cornbread Stuffing                       Seasoned Bread Stuffing (w/lighter bread & broth)

Sweet Potatoes (w/marshmallows)                Baked Sweet Potatoes (w/pecans)

Green Bean Casserole (w/cream soup)         Sautéed Green Beans (w/fried onions)

Mashed Potatoes (w/heavy dairy)                 “Light” Mash Potatoes (w/lt. dairy & Greek yogurt)

Pre-Made Cranberry Sauce (canned, etc.)    Fresh Cranberry Sauce (w/O.J., zest & min. sugar)

White Dinner Rolls                                            Whole-Wheat Rolls (or rye bread)

Pecan Pie (w/whipped cream)                         Pumpkin Pie (very minimal/no whipped cream)

Wine (red, white, blush, etc.)                           Wine Spritzer (make 1/3 of the glass club soda)

Eggnog (even “light” varieties)                        Cider (seasoned apple juice…beware of sugars)

These are just a few suggestions to help you keep with your commitment to healthy eating and not overloading unnecessarily.  You can always just have different food selections all together (Brussels sprouts for green beans, mashed cauliflower for potatoes, no stuffing, no rolls, no dessert, water only, etc.) but if you don’t wish to go that extreme I hope the above list helps make things a bit healthier.

As always, portion control is crucial and drinking plenty of water can help with overeating.  Remember to not drink too many calories (soda, juice, or alcohol) and be aware of any appetizers (chips, dips, finger foods, etc.) that add to the calorie count.  Also, watch out for sauces, toppings, and gravies that can easily derail your best efforts in other areas.

If you have any questions or need more suggestions please contact our Support Department either by phone at 1-877-744-1224 or by email at support@creativebioscience.com for assistance.

Everyone knows all too well that the key to weight loss and weight maintenance is not eating too much…easier said than done!  So, appetite suppression is vital to keep the pounds from piling on, especially when tempted to overindulge.  Whether it’s a special occasion, the holidays, or just needing that comfort food to soothe your soul, controlling your appetite is very important but usually difficult.

Well, I might have something that could make appetite suppression easier than exercising a lot of willpower.  We have our diet drops…hcg1234, 1234 Diet Drops, and Diet Drops Extreme to the rescue!  Yes, all three of these are diet products that do require adherence to a specific diet to see surprising weight loss, but they all have a very strong appetite suppressive quality that curbs the appetite and allows you to eat less…especially Extreme.

So, if you’re looking to lose a good amount of weight in a relatively short amount of time be sure to strictly follow the protocol and diet outlined on our website for these products.  www.creativebioscience.com However, if you need something that really suppresses your appetite no matter what diet you’re doing, or even if you’re not dieting at all, give any of our drops a try and see how easy it is to refrain.  The Extreme in particular, with a sweeter glycerin base and three times the ingredients, can help you control your hunger to the point that you might even forget to eat sometimes!

As always, please review the ingredients with your doctor or pharmacist to make sure it’s advisable for you to use our products and enjoy eating healthy foods and being active for the healthiest you!

With the flu running rampant throughout the country, and the virulent strain affecting so many, it’s more important than ever to practice good virus prevention.  Growing up my family always had the mantra “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” and that’s never been more applicable than now.

Here are some suggestions for mitigating the inevitable contact you will have with these viruses and the ill people carrying them:

Wash your hands:  Every time you shake someone’s hand wash yours!  In fact, wash your hands often regardless to get rid of as many germs as possible.

Don’t touch your face:  Touching your eyes, nose, or mouth are the ways germs get into your system.  These sebaceous glands are the quickest way to introduce germs into the body so avoid touching them and increase your chances of staying healthy.

Eat healthy:  Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables along with lean protein to support your immune system.  It’s a lot easier than fighting off an illness.

Stay hydrated:  Be sure to increase your fluid intake (water mainly) and limit excess sugary drinks and empty calorie selections.  Dehydration is taxing on the body and can weaken the immune system.

Get quality rest & sleep more:  Give your body a chance to fight off germs by not burning the candle at both ends.  Resting and getting plenty of restorative sleep (at least 8 hours) is vital to maintaining a healthy body and supporting your immune system.

Get some exercise:  Get your heart pumping and work up a sweat to enhance healthy immune function.  It’s also a part of keeping your body running at optimal levels.

Stay away from symptomatic people:  Keep your distance from people who are sneezing, coughing, and generally looking unwell.  It seems obvious but keeping a safe distance goes a long way in preventing illness.

Sanitize yourself:  Alcohol-based hand sanitizers and wipes can really help keep you healthy.  Not only clean your hands but also things like your cell phone, stationary phone, tv remote, door knobs, faucets, cabinet & refrigerator handles, steering wheel & dashboard controls, along with any “community surfaces” (both at home and at work) that are suspect.

Practicing some good prevention techniques goes a long way in staying healthy.  It’s a frightening thought how many people we come in contact with on a daily basis and then come home to our loved ones, possibly carrying some dangerous germs.  Keep yourself and your family safe and healthy with some of these necessary things and enjoy your illness-free winter!
