Attendees will receive recipes, the How-To’s for a Gluten-Free/FODMAP living protocol, a set of the BeFree! Life Affirming Cards and a Self-Test

Join Jenny Bair as she shares “What the FODMAP?!”

No, it’s not something the young kids are saying; it’s a diet that many try when they have gone Gluten Free but still are not feeling stellar.

If you live with typical IBS symptoms, want to eat low in sugar (fructose), eat low/lactose free, lower in yeast, then this diet may be for you!

Betty Murray of Living Well has shared the science behind the diet but Jenny Bair, MHE, of Living Well Dallas is going to help you logistically get your head around it and spell out the how-to’s for the everyday living.

She’ll share her top ten list of products that she uses as go-to’s, she’ll give you a summer meal and some snack recipes to take home with you, and just give you hope for feeling better and better each day.

Jenny is an expert in how to make lasting changes in your life and she loves navigating the unseen space in between your ears to figure out how to “Work with yourself and not against yourself.”

So, get yourself and your friends to this class. You’ll leave with a refreshed sense of enthusiasm of why you make all of the efforts to live the way you do with wonderful pay-off’s.

You’ll also get to  taste test sample some of the snackie type recipes in her new “What the FODMAP?” cookbook and she will keep you entertained as she is known for her honesty, interaction and  “life stand-up comedy” rolled into her speaking and teaching.

 

5 Foods That Help You Slim Down

By Betty Murray

Summer is just a few months away; it’s time to start working on your beach body!

Even if you’ve been eating a relatively healthy diet, you may find that you’re struggling to lose excess pounds and inches around your waist. If you need an extra weight loss boost, check your diet for these five foods. Each of these foods can help you slim down just in time for summer.

Hot peppers – People tend to consume fewer calories when they eat spicy foods such as red chili peppers, compared to bland foods. Chemicals called capsaicinoids which cause the burning sensation have also been found to reduce cravings for fatty, sweet and salty foods. There is also evidence that once the capsaicinoids reach the gut, they cause an increase in brown fat cells, which burn calories at a faster rate and increase core temperature.

Spices – Tumeric, oregano, cinnamon, rosemary, cloves and paprika are all spices that have been found to improve insulin sensitivity. When you eat a fatty meal, your triglyceride levels and insulin spikes. Eat the same meal with about two teaspoons of some of these spices, and it will help keep your triglyceride and insulin levels down.

Water – Drinking a glass of water before a meal, and drinking water with your meal can fill you up faster so you’ll consume fewer calories. Similarly, foods that have high water content work much the same way. A study out of Tokyo found that women who a lot of ate foods that were high in water content (like fruits and vegetables) had lower body mass indexes (BMI) and smaller waistlines. Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, grapefruit, lettuce, radishes and spinach are all foods that are high in water content.

Nuts – Keep nuts like almonds, walnuts and pecans around the house for snacks. If you get a mid-day craving for a snack, eat a small handful of nuts instead of a processed, high-calorie, high-carb snack. Research has shown that people who eat nuts for a snack will eat less at meal time. Nuts like almonds are high in protein, which helps keep you feeling full.

Apples – Another great snack option, apples are high in fiber and antioxidants that may help prevent metabolic syndrome, a condition that leads to excess belly fat. Apples contain natural sugar (as all fruits do), but they are a relatively low-calorie snack. A raw apple about 3-1/4” in diameter with the skin on contains just under 120 calories.

Your body needs calories to function, but you have control over the types of calories you take in. Keep these weight loss superfoods at close reach so you’ll be more inclined to grab a healthy snack when the craving hits.
