    How To Gain Weight

    As a Nutritionist and Personal Trainer, I get quite a few questions from clients about how gain weight, and how to go about it in a healthy manner...

    In the world of health and nutrition, we often talk about weight loss. More often than not, shedding extra pounds is the ultimate goal. However, as a Nutritionist and Personal Trainer, I get quite a few questions from clients about how gain weight, and how to go about it in a healthy manner.

    There are endless benefits that come with making healthy dietary changes. Increased micronutrient levels (vitamins and minerals), adequate protein and fat intake to support proper muscle growth, cell maintenance and repair, detoxifying potentially harmful environmental and food toxins from the body, preventing illness, along with many others. However, people often find that when they make certain healthy dietary modifications, weight loss is the result.

    In this article, we will discuss several ways to both maintain and gain weight, while still adopting healthy eating principles.

     Why Am I Underweight?

    Being underweight is defined as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of under 18.5, whereas obesity if considered a BMI of over 25. However, keep in mind that BMI calculations do not take into account muscle versus fat density, so it not always the best measurement.

    First and foremost, let’s look at the reasons you might be underweight. The simplest and least problematic reason (and the one we will focus on primarily here), is simply being genetically predisposed to a fast metabolic rate, making weight gain difficult and being naturally very lean.

    However, more problematic reasons should also be considered (particularly if being underweight is a new phenomenon), such as a GI infection or parasite, Celiac Disease (autoimmune gluten allergy)[1], or malabsorption of food and nutrients. Again, for intents and purposes of this article, we will not focus on these possible contributors, but they certainly are ones that should be discussed with a qualified healthcare professional, if suspected.

    In fact, studies show that being underweight actually poses more health risks that being overweight.[2]

    Assuming you are simply a fast metabolizer wanting to eat healthy while maintaining or gaining weight, here are 5 important tips to follow:

     EAT FROM EVERY MACRONUTRIENT GROUP

     Often with weight loss efforts, it becomes important to adjust certain macronutrient intakes depending on the individual. Remember, the three macronutrient groups include protein, carbohydrate, and fat. For someone wanting to gain or maintain their weight, making sure to eat amply from all groups is essential, in every meal.

    DONT SKIMP ON THE CARBOHYDRATES

     Again, with weight loss clients, I often recommend a lower-carbohydrate diet model. However, for fast metabolizers wanting to gain weight, this is certainly not the right approach. This can be difficult, as many commonly consumed carbohydrates do not fit into a healthy diet. So, just because you have total liberty to eat starchier foods, does not mean that processed breads, baked goods, and pastries should be the focus.

    Excellent sources of healthy carbohydrates include sweet potatoes, yams, regular potatoes, winter squash, fruit, plantains, yucca, whole grains and legumes. Include a healthy portion of one of these carbohydrates in each meal and snack. Also, including fruit (especially starchier options such as bananas), in between meals, can help. Lastly, mixing each serving of carbohydrates with substantial protein and healthy fat can go a long way in being sure not to lose weight.

    FOCUS ON PLENTY OF HEALTHY FATS

     Thankfully, the myth of the low-fat/non-fat diet model has been largely debunked (although many dieters still opt for this model out of habit and misinformation), but it is certainly true that those wanting to lose weight should not eat excessive calories from fat.

    Fat offers the most calories per serving than the other two macronutrients (120 calories per tablespoon). Even for weight loss efforts, fat is essential, as without it, our metabolism senses starvation and slows down, amongst other reasons.

    Including servings of healthy fats with all meals and snacks is critical for weight gain. Focus on sources such as olive oil, coconut oil, grass-fed butter, ghee, flax oil, avocados, nuts and seeds, and naturally occurring fats in good quality protein sources such as grass-fed beef, pasture raised pork, and wild fish. Also, coconut in other forms such as coconut cream and milk can be a nutritious and calorie-dense source.

    INCLUDE SMOOTHIES

     Smoothies are an easy and majorly effective tool for weight gain. They can be packed with nutrients, and add up to 2,000 more calories per day to your daily diet, if necessary. I recommend smoothie ingredients including a high quality protein powder (grass-fed whey is a good option, if tolerated, or opt for a hemp or pea powder), whole, organic milk or coconut milk, flax and/or chia seeds, banana, a handful of greens such as spinach, and honey as a sweetener, if needed. Add ice and water depending on your desired consistency, and enjoy! One or two of these per day will add extra-needed calories to your diet plan.

    EAT WHOLE FAT DAIRY

     Dairy can be described as a building food, as it naturally adds to weight gain. Think of babies whose primary mission is to grow and develop, and their diet of mother’s milk. Commercial dairy obviously does not resemble nutrient-dense breast milk whatsoever, and should definitely be avoided. However, organic, whole-fat dairy products definitely have a place in a diet for weight-gain.

    Stick to sources such as grass-fed butter, whole, organic milk (even raw, which can often be found at your local farm or cooperative grocery store), whole, plain yogurt, kefir, and organic cheese. Include these foods in meals and snacks.

    In Conclusion

     by following these rules, you can be sure that you are providing the body with the macro and micronutrients necessary for health, without risking weight loss, and likely encouraging weight gain. Remember to consider if you suspect an underlying problem that is contributing to your weight (a parasite or GI infection, for example), and seek treatment. However, if you are simply a fast metabolizer, these tips will support your body in reaching its optimal weight.

    10 Home Remedies To Fight Off Acne

    Basic Home Remedies to Fight off Acne for Good

    Acne plagues kids, young adults, and adults worldwide. Sadly, acne is the most common skin condition around, but the good news is the treatment options are endless. Pimples are formed when hair follicles under your skin clog up. (Medline Plus, 1). According to dermatologists, acne plagues 40-50 million Americans who are unhappy with letting acne run its course. There are a lot of different remedies from dermatologists and doctors that can help eliminate acne for good. Keep reading to learn a few at home remedies to put a stop to acne for good.

    In order for the remedies to work, you may need to be persistent. After some time, if the blemishes are not going away you will want to consult your dermatologist.

    Causes for Breakouts:

    • Hormonal imbalances
    • Eating Spicy Foods which contain acidic lycopene
    • Smoking
    • Scrubbing your skin too hard
    • Touching your face with unclean hands
    • Triggers from Stress stimulate an overproduction of oil glands
    • Overexposure to sun
    • Not washing your face after a workout
    • Overuse of topical treatments
    • A diet of too much grease and/or sugar
    • Not moisturizing (Cardellino, 1).

    At Home Remedies to Clear Up Acne:

    1. Apply Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is known to balance the PH levels in your body, making this an excellent home remedy selection. It also kills off bacteria; and dries up excessive oils. To use, you will first wash your face with water and then dry your skin thoroughly. Using one part water and three parts vinegar, apply to a cotton ball and then dab onto the blemish. You can either leave this on for 10 minutes or overnight.
    2. Cinnamon Honey Mask: Cinnamon has antimicrobial properties, so it might stop the spread of acne before it starts. Honey has natural antibiotic properties that also help kill off acne. To make the mask, mix two tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon together. Apply the mask to a fresh face, and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off.
    3. Egg White Mask: Eggs are known to harbor proteins and nutrients that will fight off acne and repair skin cells. Eggs are also famous for reducing the appearance of scars that acne often leaves on the skin. To make this mask, you will need 2-3 egg whites, a bowl, and a washcloth. In the bowl, whisk the whites until they are frothy and let them sit for a few minutes. Cover your face with the mixture and let it sit for 20 minutes. Rinse off and wipe clean with a wash cloth.
    4. Tea Tree Oil: Tea tree oil is not like the oil that is clogging your pores and causing acne. This oil specifically cleans out bad bacteria and unclogs pores. It is never meant to be ingested, and it is only for topical use. Always apply topical solutions to a clean face. To use tea tree oil to fight against acne, simply apply 2-3 drops of tea tree oil to 9 parts water on a q-tip or cotton ball and apply to the blemish.
    5. Lemon Juice: Lemon juice is an affordable way to stop acne right in its tracks. Because of lemon’s high vitamin C levels, it is naturally good for the skin. Due to its high acid content, lemon juice is also a natural exfoliator. To use, simply squeeze lemon juice onto a cotton ball and apply to the blemish. Let sit until dry and rinse off.
    6. A Steam Mask: Hot steam can kill bacteria and clear out pores. This simple steam mask is easy to do on a daily basis and will do wonders for your skin. Just boil a pot of hot water and pour the hot water into a bowl. Carefully place your face directly above the bowl and drape a towel over your head to trap the steam. Let the steam work for 10-15 minutes.
    7. Avocado and Honey Mask: You may already know about honey’s skin benefits, but avocados are also wonderful for your skin. Avocados are loaded with vitamins and minerals which can suppress acne. To make this mask you will need 1 ripe avocado and 1 tablespoon of honey. Once you have cleaned your face and dried it thoroughly, mash up the avocado and mix in the honey. Apply to your face and let it stand for 15-20 minutes. Wash your face with warm water and pat dry.
    8. Don’t Touch Your Face: Our hands are full of germs and bacteria. When you touch your face, you are spreading acne-causing bacteria to your face.
    9. Wash Your Pillow Case: Pillow cases and sheets should be washed weekly. You lose millions of dead skin cells with bacteria on them every minute. It is important not to flare up acne by clogging pores with these dead skin cells. (Everyday Roots, 1).
    10. Aspirin Topical Treatment: Aspirin has a high level of salicylic acid which can decrease the redness and irritation in acne. To make a home remedy topical solution from aspirin, crush up 2 aspirin tablets and add enough water to make a thick paste. Once you have washed your face, apply to the blemish and let it sit for 10 minutes or until dry. (Laliberte, 1).

    After trying your luck with home remedies, hopefully the acne improves. In order for the remedies to work, you may need to be persistent. After some time, if the blemishes are not going away you will want to consult your dermatologist. They can prescribe more effective products such as Accutane if the situation becomes bad. These medications are only to be taken from a dermatologist.

    7 Home Remedies To Help Relieve Migraines

    Migraines and how to deal with the pain

    Migraines can catch you off guard, and put you down for an entire day if not treated. The severity of migraines can range from minor to severe, and they are usually described as dull, deep, and steady. Migraines are a type of headache that is often localized in a certain area of the head and are sometimes accompanied by a pronounced sensitivity to light and sound. More common with women than men, they are noted to be a chronic, incurable condition. (Zimney, 1). There is an abundance of at home remedies to look at when dealing with migraine pain. Below is a list of the types of migraines you might experience and some simple remedies to deal with them.

    Migraines can be very unforgiving, so it is important to stay ahead of them by preparing and having a plan of action. Migraines do not like commotion, so boring is best when a migraine hits. Slow down and stay calm.

    Types of Migraines:

    • Migraine with aura: A migraine that beings with certain neurological symptoms that trigger visual disturbances (tunnel vision, jagged edges around the edge of the visual field). The headache follows after about 93% of the time. These are the most common.
    • Hemiplegic migraine: The patient will have vertigo, paralysis of one side of the body, and visual impairments.
    • Ophthalmologic migraine: This is a rare form of migraine. This happens when the headache is localized around the eye. Symptoms may include droopy eyelids or visual problems.
    • Basilar artery migraine: Results from a spasm in the basilar artery. This can cause vertigo, poor motor skills, and difficulty speaking and hearing.
    • Benign exertional headache: A vascular headache triggered by physical exertion. This type of migraine usually only lasts a couple of minutes.
    • Status migrainosus:An extremely intense migraine that makes the person feel nauseated and pain so intense it may require hospitalization.
    • Headache-free migraine: Just as it sounds. The person will experience the side effects of a migraine (visual loss, vomiting, and nausea) with no headache afterward. (Zimney,1).

    Migraines can be triggered by a number of things. Some include: Stress, alcohol, certain foods, and not getting enough exercise. Others (for women) include time near to their menstruation cycle. Because of the steep decline of estrogen during this time, migraines are then sparked. Not getting enough sleep is also a trigger that can make migraines more frequent and more intense.

    There are a number of over-the-counter drugs you can take to relieve your pain, as well as some non-drug related remedies. If the home remedies do not work, consult a doctor who may be able to prescribe you proper treatments.

    Home remedies to quicker relief:

    1. Managing Stress Levels: This can ease the onset of a migraine before it happens. Lavender oil, calming music, and low light can help ease stress. If you work in an office setting, you can bring lavender oil to work and rub it near your temples. When you experience migraines you can have sensitivity to light, so dimming your lights can give your eyes a rest as well as offset migraine pain.
    2. Essential Oils: Basil and peppermint oils are said to ease tension headache when rubbed on the skin such as near the temples, chest, and under the nose. Peppermint oils are said to have vaso-constricting and vasodilating properties which help control the flow of blood in the body. They also help open up the sinuses to promote proper breathing. Basil oil works as a muscle relaxant and eases the tension in the head caused by headaches and tight muscles.
    3. Diet Fixes: Foods such as peanut butter, dairy, chocolate, avocados, bananas, and citrus have been linked to migraines. Keeping a journal of food triggers can ease the future pain of migraines. Each person’s reactions are going to be different in this area, so knowing what food triggers set off your migraines by writing them down is key.
    4. Scalp Massage: Giving yourself a scalp massage has been known to alleviate migraine pain. Rub your temple area and the tops and sides of the cranium for relief. This can be done for as many minutes as needed.
    5. Consuming Flaxseed: Some migraines are caused by inflammation. Flaxseed contains omega-3’s that are high in healthy fats that can offset inflammation. Flaxseed can be ground up and taken in smoothies or mixed in with your favorite foods.
    6. Herb– Feverfew is known to alleviate migraines. This medicinal herb can be taken by the capsule, tablet, or liquid extract. It comes from a short bush with daisy-like flowers and is native to the Balkan Mountains of Eastern Europe. (Calabro, 1).
    7. Ice-Packs: Ice is used as an anti-inflammatory. When dealing with a migraine headache, always opt for cold versus hot to reduce swelling and inflammation.

    Medications to Stop Pain:

    • Tylenol
    • Advil
    • Bayer
    • Excedrin
    • Ibuprofen

    Medications to Prevent a Migraine:

    • Beta-blockers, such as propranolol.
    • Calcium channel blockers, such as verapamil.
    • Anticonvulsants, such as topiramate.
    • Botox:  Approved by the FDA in 2010, Botox injections to treat chronic migraines are a clinically proven preventive. A treatment involves about 31 shots, given about every 12 weeks. Side effects are rare. (Sole-Smith, 1).

    Migraines can be very unforgiving, so it is important to stay ahead of them by preparing and having a plan of action. Migraines do not like commotion, so boring is best when a migraine hits. Slow down and stay calm. As stated earlier, nourishing your body and understanding what triggers your migraines can be helpful when trying to avoid their wrath. Lastly, make sure you keep on moving to your comfort level. Yoga can be very beneficial for people whose migraines are triggered by intense exercise. Talk to your doctor is the pain is unbearable, as they may be able to recommend different treatments or prescriptions to alleviate the pain.

    10 Yeast Infection Home Remedies

    Yeast infections and how to regain comfort

    Most women are bothered at one time or another by pesky yeast infections. A yeast infection is one of the most unpleasant and uncomfortable infections to deal with. The good news is the treatments are simple, and the infections are very common. Yeast is a fungus that lives in the vagina in small numbers. When too many of the yeast cells start growing, the infection starts to take over. Almost all yeast infections are from the yeast called Candida albicans. (Web MD, 1). Antibiotics, steroid medications, chronic stress and a diet high in sugar and processed foods can make a woman susceptible to yeast overgrowth. (Villet, 1). Aside from a multitude of products you can buy at the pharmacy, there is an abundance of at home remedies used to help alleviate the pain associated with yeast infections.

    Yeast infections can be extremely uncomfortable, but there are no risks involved if you let it run its course with no action. This is not a life threatening condition, but rather an inconvenience and hassle to deal with.

    Frequent Symptoms:

    • Itching, burning, and soreness of the vaginal area
    • Pain during sex
    • Rashes and white discharge
    • Painful urination
    • Redness and swelling of the vulva

    Home Remedies for Fighting off Yeast Infections:

    1. Tea Tree Oil: This oil has natural properties known to act as an antifungal and fight against yeast.
    2. Boric Acid: This should never be applied directly. Capsules are sold at most health food stores and are to be used as intravaginal suppositories. Boric acid is known to inhibit the growth of the yeast, and is also known as an antifungal acid.
    3. Cotton Lined Underwear: A moist, warm environment is known to set the growth of yeast into overdrive. Wearing cotton lined underwear, avoiding tight jeans, and allowing air flow helps. Make sure to wear loose fitting pants to allow air to circulate and to dry off thoroughly after showering.
    4. Drugstore Antifungals: Most drugstore antifungals use azoles, which are meant to clear up 80-90% of yeast. Most of the treatment plans range from 1-11 days.
    5. Yogurt and Good Bacteria with Probiotics: Orally ingesting your favorite yogurt, and probiotic have shown improvements with patients’ comfort levels when experiencing a yeast infection. You are essentially fighting bad bacteria with the good bacteria.
    6. Garlic: Numerous studies have shown garlic’s antifungal properties. While it is not a proven fix for yeast infections, many people like to experiment as it is tasty and easy to try.
    7. Coconut Oil: Coconut oil has effective antifungal properties that can kill a yeast infection. Simply apply three times a day until the infection has gotten better. You can also swish with coconut oil (oil pulling) for 5-10 minutes to release your body of unwanted toxins. This is also used for oral yeast infections. Do not swallow the oil, as you will be ingesting all of the bacteria your body released.
    8. Apple Cider Vinegar: Both apple cider vinegar and white vinegar have properties that can detain a yeast infection. Simply mix two tablespoons of the vinegar with a glass of warm water, and drink twice a day for a few days. (Home Remedies, 1).
    9. Baking Soda: Add baking soda to your bath to take away the itch that comes with yeast infections. Add a half of a cup to start, and add more if the itching sensation does not go away.
    10. Water: Drinking water is the purest form of detox one can do. By drinking water throughout the day, you are ridding your body of toxins and clearing out the infection. Don’t forget this simple step!

    Helpful Products to Buy at the Pharmacy:

    • Anti-itch cream
    • CVS Clotrimazole 3 Vaginal Cream (2%)
    • Azo Yeast Tablets in a probiotic base
    • 1 Dose Treatment Tioconazole 1
    • Miconazole 3 Day Combination Pack
    • Urinary Pain Relief Tablets
    • Cystex Tablets
    • Monistat 1 Combination Pack Day or Night
    • Vagisil Crème
    • Vagisil Maximum Strength Anti-Itch Medicated Wipes

    Miconazole and clotrimazole products are available in one, three-, six- and seven-day formats. Which one you choose depends on the severity of symptoms. For a mild yeast infection, a treatment course of one to three days may be appropriate, but for stubborn or recurrent infections, go for a longer duration of therapy. (Villet, 1).

    Yeast infections can be extremely uncomfortable, but there are no risks involved if you let it run its course with no action. This is not a life threatening condition, but rather an inconvenience and hassle to deal with. Of the 75% of women who experience yeast infections, 5-10% will experience chronic episodes. (Villet, 1). If your yeast infection is persistent, it is always a good idea to check with your doctor about alternative remedies. Women who are pregnant should consult a doctor before taking any products from the pharmacy or at home. Otherwise, there are many healthy alternatives to fast relief from pesky yeast infections as stated above!
