Guest Blogger:  Debbie Parrella, R.N.

I have been a nurse practitioner for 15 years now and speak with countless people on a daily basis about their health. I also let them know things they can do to help  live healthier lives. Most people know what they should be doing, but sometimes, I like to help out with tips on how to eat healthier foods, how to lose weight and inches off our waists and offer tips on how to feel better about ourselves!  

Here are just a few reminders:

1) When Having Carbs, have only Complex Carbs* – simple carbs (like white bread and pasta) turn almost immediately into empty “sugar” calories in your body.   

        *These whole plant foods are great sources of complex carbohydrates:
  • Green vegetables.
  • Whole grains and foods made from them, such as oatmeal, pasta, and whole-grain breads.
  • Starchy vegetables such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, and pumpkin.
  • Beans, lentils, and peas.

 2) Stay away from refined sugar!  Aside from an occasional treat, none of us should be eating sugary snacks on a daily basis.   

3) DRINK YOUR WATER!  Very few people drink enough water.  How much is enough?  Roughly half your weight in ounces of water a day!  Yes, it’s a lot.  Yes, you will go to the bathroom a lot.  But your body needs it!  A dehydrated body cannot excrete fat efficiently!     

4) Watch calories - about 1200 a day is the limit for an overweight woman who wants to actively lose weight and    

5) Stop night time snacking, period!   

Oh! And this might be a new one for you – have your breakfast later in the day.  Contrary to popular belief, not having breakfast first thing in the morning does NOT slow your metabolism.  In fact, if you can follow a concept called “intermittent fasting” you will lose weight and inches must faster! 
What was even more frustrating for me the last 12 years or so, was  that I kept seeing the same patients 2 or 3 times a year, and repeating these concepts, and seeing them come back at the same weight or heavier…And not only did I know these concepts and have the knowledge but I WAS UNABLE to do it myself!   

I understood the concepts, the physiology of it all. I certainly understood the vast health benefits of being at a healthy weight and the vast health detriments of being overweight.  So, why couldn’t I do it?  For me, it was simple willpower. I was hungry.  When I was hungry, I was, for lack of a better word, bitchy.  I felt deprived all the time, frustrated I had to skip dinner or happy hour invitations because I was “on a diet." I may have lost a few pounds here and there, but when I didn’t feel like being hungry anymore, I would start to gain the weight back.  

Being a nurse practitioner, patients would approach me all the time with various programs to ask what I thought.  Many of them sounded okay, and I would wind up trying them myself.  This way I could have personal knowledge of the product or plan and why not? I was desperate to lose weight myself.    

For liability reasons I will not name them  – but I have spent almost $100 A WEEK for processed food and had to drive to pick it up, I’ve spent $400 a  month on frozen food that came to my door, I’ve tried freeze dried food for about $400 a month,  I’ve tried powdered shakes for breakfast and lunch.

NONE of these things were effective for me.  Temporarily, yes, but these were just that – temporary fixes.  None of these programs taught me anything about eating – they were all just temporary and expensive, with no “long term plan."

In the spring of 2015 I saw an ad on Facebook for FITTEAM GLOBAL.  “Two drinks a day, eat real food, guaranteed weight loss” the ad said.  It was after the holidays, I was feeling terribly overweight and depressed, and figured why not?  I had tried everything else.  I ordered the product and was pleased to see a month supply was only about $110.  It was the least expensive thing I’d ordered in all my years of trying to lose weight.  When I received the meal plan I was even more excited.  There was NOTHING on there that would be specific to me.  All healthy, non-processed, “grocery aisle” type food that I could feed the rest of my family as well.   I looked at the concept of “intermittent fasting” (basically trying to keep 16 hours between when you finish dinner and start breakfast) and that “only water” should be consumed, and thought – okay, this will be tough, but I’ll try. 

The first week I was amazed.  After just a day or two, my coffee, which I insisted on still having – sat on my desk in my travel mug, untouched – water intake accomplished easily!  It  would get to be almost 11:00am before I even thought about food – 16 hour fast, done!   Cooking dinner for my family and skipping the carb (no carbs later in the day on this plan) and dinner, done!  No night time snacking was a little harder of a habit to break – but after the second week I was done with that too.    

As a health professional I absolutely advocate for regular exercise daily – or as often as possible.  However, I was never able to incorporate regular exercise into my plan – and I was still seeing success!

My weight fluctuated that first month, and at the end of it I was down 4 lbs.  Not quite the amazing results I was hoping for – but I began to notice other things.  I was getting  home from work and looking forward to walking the dog instead of taking a nap before dinner.  The “weight of the world” was lifting a bit from my shoulders.  People at work were noticing the weight loss, even though it was only 4 pounds.  I had never measured myself, but my pants were fitting better and my face was showing it.  I felt more focused and less overwhelmed at work. I felt so good that I decided to continue with the program. By the  3 ½ month mark, I was at my goal and down 30 lbs!!  I honestly never thought I would ever be at my goal weight again.   My kids talk about “before Fit” and “after Fit” because my mood, my energy, and my patience are so drastically improved. 

In mid June, 2015 I was so impressed with my own results, and had seen and read so many amazing testimonials through the support network with FIT – I became a rep and have never looked back.  The gratification of having life-long friends tell me that seeing a post or talking to me about FITTEAM has changed their lives is amazing.  I am working now with over 100 customers with varying degrees of success, and I couldn’t be happier.  

FITTEAM is not only an amazing product that works, an amazing supportive company, but it is a tremendous opportunity to help people as well. I take my position as a coach very seriously, and work hard every day making sure everyone I am working with is getting the most out of the program. I take pride in the fact that the company offers a money back guarantee on first orders – and they stand by it.  

Aside from pounds and inches, there is literally very little to lose when you give FITTEAM a try, and a tremendous amount to gain!

Water is Essential

Your Brain on Water
Upon waking, what do you find yourself doing to start your day? Is your coffee pot pre-programed so that you can enjoy your Cup o’Joe immediately, or do you replenish and re-hydrate your fasted body with a nice, tall glass of water? Even if you don’t necessarily feel parched upon waking or thirsty throughout the day, the benefits of drinking water not only aid us in physical functions, but also mental functions. There are exercises for keeping your mind sharp, brain puzzles, super foods, and sleep, but one simple, yet often disregarded thing people can do to aid in brain health is just drinking water. Don’t take this simple task for granted, use it to your advantage.
Similar to other organs in our body, our brain depends on proper hydration to function optimally and efficiently. A delicate balance between water and surrounding elements is needed by our brain cells, and when we lose too much water, the balance is disrupted, putting us in an inefficient state. Water gives the brain the electrical energy for all brain functions, including thought and memory processes, and the production of hormones and neurotransmitters. “Optimal brain function means the ability to think faster, be more focused, and experience increased clarity and creativity. According to Dr. Corinne Allen, founder of the Advanced Learning and Development Institute, brain cells need two times more energy than other cells in the body. Water provides this energy more effectively than any other substance.” (2)

The normal 6-8 hours we sleep, is the longest period we naturally go without drinking water. However, unbeknownst to many, we still lose water even when we sleep. With every somnolent breath, moisture is expelled, and the cumulative effect is for us to lose hydration.

Keeping our brain fueled is obviously of utmost importance. When recognizing water’s vitality to life, have you ever taken time to imagine what life might be like if your access to clean, drinkable water was restricted? If water is important to you, think of what you’ll endure to get it. Some humans are forced to struggle and sacrifice just to satisfy their daily requirements.

People often have it easy in the developed world, and we tend to forget that others around the globe are far less fortunate. “While your thirst is quenched, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water. 38,000 children under the age of 5 die each week because they lack uncontaminated water. African women walk over 40 billion hours each year carrying cisterns weighing up to 18 kilograms to gather water, which is usually still not safe to drink.” (1)

In honor of World Water Day 2017, it’s critical we not only recognize water’s significance for our brain and body, but also become aware of its importance in the environment, agriculture, and trade, and the scarcity many experience when it comes to accessing clean water. It’s one of our most essential resources, yet there’s so much to learn. Let’s do what we can to educate and inspire others about the world’s water.
