Like many of us, Hot 107.9 radio personality and producer Tonya Clackum, AKA “Beyonce Alowishus,” repeatedly found her busy schedule standing in the way of her health goals.
She regularly skipped breakfast, sacrificed nutrition for convenience at lunchtime, and grabbed fast food on the way home from work.
After years of struggling with her weight, trying every diet under the sun, she was looking for a plan that would allow her to lose weight despite her busy schedule, eat fresh food, and be sustainable long-term.


Tonya was immediately impressed by the friendly, informative Good Measure Meals staff and wide variety of meals on the menu. Tonya starting receiving the 1200 calorie meal plan, 7 days per week, and documenting her experience in a series of blog posts.
The best parts of the program are the food variety (I never had the same meal twice), easy pick-up locations, being informative and affordable, and the GREAT taste. My friends and co-workers say I look great, but it’s not just because of the weight loss; it’s also because the meals are so well planned. Several months into her Good Measure Meals, Tonya is 20 POUNDS DOWN and continues to lose weight, looking and feeling better every day.
Alcohol itself is dehydrating, and a whole lot of those nasty side effects to a really fun night out are just symptoms of dehydration and low blood glucose. In an effort to enjoy my night, and the bright life I have ahead of me, I like to sip on lower calorie, alcohol-free mocktails. Lately I’ve been excited to incorporate a water carbonator into my regular personal use.
Now, carbonated water (or sparkling water…or soda water) definitely is a unique experience for first-timers. Obviously you don’t have to go all-in and buy a water carbonator to get some carbonated water for yourself. Now if you find that you’re drinking a 6-pack of LaCroix a day, a personal water carbonator might just be a good investment. Carbonated water can also be a great base for some tasty, nutritious beverages – especially if you don’t feel like you have developed a taste for straight carbonated water yet. It’s not uncommon to start a weight loss plan and feel like you’re doing everything right, and yet the weight doesn’t seem to come off.
While skipping breakfast sounds like a great way to “save calories” for a meal later in the day, it actually can cause you to feel those mid-morning hunger aches which lead to mindless snacking on high calorie junk foods. So you’re eating a balanced diet and watching the calories you eat, but what about your drinks? Even though consuming a balanced diet with all of the food groups is the best way to keep your body fueled during weight loss, calorie intake is what drives that scale number down.
It’s easy to see a new exercise routine as license to eat a few extra calories, but that quickly defeats the goal of weight loss. Today’s post in the series “What are your Favorite Summer Fruits and Veggies?” was contributed by Philip Niekro, GMM Customer Service Manager. This summer I’ve been working on losing a few pounds and am being successful on the Good Measure Meals plan. Strawberries are chock full of Vitamin C and, calorie-wise, you get a big bang for your buck. Using an infusion pitcher, add sliced cucumber and one small bunch of washed basil in the center compartment and add filtered water. Whatever you do, make sure to enjoy the wonderful produce and herbs that this season has to offer – and most of all, have a great Summer!!
Rachel Stroud, our GMM Registered Dietitian and Community Wellness Rep, has been joining host Rashan Ali to discuss some really important keys to weight-loss success. Hopefully you’ve already made the pledge to yourself to Commit to Lean in 2014 and are on your way toward meeting your health goals this year. The complicated part is that so many diets out there make weight loss about less, less, less. Energy Balance is the simplest equation we have for achieving weight loss or weight maintenance. The calories you personally need each day for basic survival is called your Basil Metabolic Rate.
Now here’s the real kicker: fueling our muscles with oxygen and energy is a significant part of our metabolic rate, so let’s say your body breaks down muscle to fuel itself during your diet regimen of drastic calorie-cutting.
The moral of the story is: the only way to increase your metabolism (so that you can actually burn away that FAT) is to build more muscle. Unless you want to continue cutting away calories and restricting your access to food for the rest of your life, losing weight the healthy and sustainable way means keeping your muscle and your metabolism and burning away your fat with a balance of nutrition and calorie intake that works for your exercise level and Basal Metabolic needs.
And if you’re curious about how many calories YOU need per day, fill out your info in the Calorie Calculator tool at the bottom of the homepage of our website, or schedule a Med Gem appointment with one of our dietitians to find out your exact Basal Metabolic Rate! I’m excited to say that there is one thing Atlanta has that New York still doesn’t: Good Measure Meals.
I wish I had access to Good Measure Meals’ fresh, healthy and balanced, gourmet meal plans when I was in New York. The holiday season is notorious for temptation…From second helpings of holiday dinners to endless cookie baskets in the office break room, most of us find the pounds packing on from late November through the end of the year.  While I never advise anyone to miss out on the richness of flavor during the holiday months (Pumpkin Pie is a staple in my holiday diet), we do need to find balance. In the end it is all about balance and knowing that you can enjoy the holidays to the fullest if you remember to also get a little activity in there.  So next time you reach for that second slice of pie, follow the sweet treat with a family outing to the skating rink and maximize the holiday fun! Breakfast is an essential component of a balanced diet, and not only provides your body with the energy that you need to function throughout the morning, but also assists with weight management by jump starting your metabolism!  I will admit that I have always been a breakfast eater, but until I started on my Good Measure Meals™- I usually resorted to a grab and go item or a bowl of cereal if I had the time.  I knew that I should be eating a more nutrient dense morning meal, but who has the time to whip up and perfectly balance breakfast? Oats: A great source of soluble fiber, oats have been proven to help lower “bad” cholesterol (LDL), boost “good” cholesterol(HDL), maintain a healthy circulatory system, and help prevent heart attacks!  Not only do they provide these heart healthy benefits, they are also jam packed with a wide range of vitamins and minerals including vitamins B and E, magnesium, iron and calcium!  They are also low on the glycemic index, so for folks managing insulin resistance, oats are a great addition to the diet! Cinnamon: Did you know that cinnamon has an anticoagulant compound (cinnamaldehyde) that can help protect against strokes?  It is also an anti-inflammatory, shown to relieve symptoms of arthritis and asthma…hard to believe, right?  The benefits don’t stop there though, cinnamon also functions as a digestive aid- relieving bloating and flatulence, and reducing heartburn… maybe that’s why it is so abundant in the holiday feasts! Now that you know some of the health benefits of this morning treat, get excited about Monday morning, because your GMM breakfast kicks off the week with our very own Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast Bar goodness! My advice?  Find something that motivates you to become physically active over a set duration of time.  By registering for a race, exercise class or sports league- you commit yourself to continual training and possibly an end goal.  This is a great way to build a habit! We share Fitness Recipes for a healthy diet and to assist your muscle building and fat burning. The holiday season is no exception and is actually a great opportunity to show them how much you care. It is easy to make poor food choices when faced with all those sugar-covered treats — especially at Halloween parties.
Also, the food is exposed for a longer period of time to enzymes in your mouth that help break down fat, improving digestion. The Framingham Cohort Study looked at the health of 5,036 people living in the United States.
If you are planning a vacation, do you map out the route or program it into your GPS before you get in the car? Croix Orthopaedics, every 15 pounds of excess weight puts 100 pounds more pressure on the body's joints. Be mindful, though, that eating your lunch at your desk can have negative consequences for your diet.When we eat at our desks, we are often distracted by email, phone calls and other interruptions.
They claim this forces the body to use its fat reserves for fuel instead of the carbohydrates quickly available from a pre-workout meal or snack. Focus instead on getting a much more manageable 30 minutes of exercise, five times per week. The problem is that we consume most of our protein at dinner time when we should be eating the most protein during breakfast to start off our day. The study included a control group, a group of subjects who ate three high-protein meals each day, and a third group who ate high-protein meals six times a day. We have all been in that situation where we have been invited out to go celebrate a birthday party, anniversary, you name it.
In the better sets, the traditional flaws of plasma (burn-in) and LCD (limited viewing angle, weak blacks, weak fast motion) have been largely eliminated. In 1958, Dinera€™s Club launched the first card available for payment to general merchants: 27 participating NYC restaurants. Kugel, an Orthodox Jew and author of a€?How to Read the Biblea€? says that there is essentially no evidence--archaeological, historical, cultural--for the events in the Torah.

The rope was not strong enough to carry them all; they decided 1 had to leave, or all would fall. According to the Energy Department, vampire gadgets account for about 25% of total residential electricity consumption in the U.S.
Guppy submitted a fish to the British Museum that was already classified, but the name stuck [and the fish is still in a jar at the museum]. The calorie and portion controlled meals made it easy and convenient for her to eat healthfully – and deliciously! The meals are very filling, and now that I’m eating the correct portions, I get fuller much faster and have learned not to over-eat.
So I was nervous to be away from Good Measure Meals during one 10-day train trip through Canada.
I could easily write on and on about the best ways to stay hydrated, especially during the hot and humid summer we struggle through in the south.
However, since there are a bunch of reasons why I shouldn’t sit down and drink a bunch of cocktails, I like to switch it up with mocktails.
Additionally, anything over “moderate” alcohol intake (in general, one drink daily for women and two daily for men) can at best cause an increase in triglycerides and blood pressure. Don’t get me wrong, you can still make yourself a high calorie mocktail, but there are so many fun things you can do to keep the calories to a minimum.


One of my dear co-workers just recently moved to Minnesota, and she gave me a free water carbonator in her absence. When we think of water, we think of simple hydration with a nearly complete lack of flavor associated. If you don’t have time to make breakfast yourself, let GMM take care of you with our tasty and balanced breakfast menu options!
If you drink a glass of orange juice at breakfast, a flavored coffee drink for your morning energy boost, a glass of lemonade at lunch, and a glass of wine with dinner you’ve consumed up to 700 calories in beverages alone!
And studies have shown that merely thinking about exercise can cause you to be hungrier and eat more! Additionally, if you’re awake more hours of the day, it’s easy to make time for another meal or snack which adds to your calorie tally for the day. Maybe it’s because it’s so hot outside or maybe it’s because I’m a little more tired than usual during my training season for the July 4 Peachtree Road Race (anyone else running tomorrow??). And since I’m on the 5-day a week plan, I do have to make some smart choices on the weekends. During these hot summer months, a different approach to hydration is sometimes all it takes to make drinking more water a little more exciting. She will continue this series each week for the next few weeks, so make sure to tune in at 12:30 each Wednesday for some informed discussion (and a special FLASH SALE discount!!).
If you are, you know that the process of re-learning portion control and creating those engrained healthy habits takes a while.
Our body takes in energy through food and beverages, and we put energy out through basic survival, activities of daily life, and planned exercise. This raises your metabolism and the amount of calories you burn in a day, despite your physical activity. When I contemplated the move back to Atlanta, after living in New York and Chicago before that, I had a lengthy pro and con list.
New York is the birthplace of the celebrity chef and home to Slow Food USA and endless options for foodie-approved dining. In my private nutrition counseling practice in New York, I was asked by clients for healthy meal delivery options. It is incredibly difficult to make balanced meals that are delicious and provide a large variety of regional and international flavors.
I especially look forward to that Monday morning every four weeks when I can enjoy our Tomato Frittata with Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Juicy Orange Segments. Remember, we can enjoy seasonal treats by burning those calories off in fun and festive ways! The carotenes are converted into vitamin A once eaten and promote healthy vision immune response.  There is also evidence that pumpkin helps reverse skin damage caused by the sun and acts as an anti-inflammatory.  The Carotenoid properties of pumpkin also boost immunity and lessen the risk of heart disease! Our healthy recipes are classified into Post-Workout, Low-Carb, Shakes & Weight Gainer, Fitness Desserts, Fitness Breakfast and Fitness Snacks. But it’s still completely possible to enjoy yourself at the party, without going overboard on empty calories. Often we consume our meals quickly without thinking about them, enjoying them or even really tasting them.
After years of being confined to a wheelchair due to her weight, she was able to reclaim her life. The review found that consuming dairy products was related to increased insulin production, a healthier body weight and decreased body fat. The carbohydrate is partly from lactose (milk sugar), which is digested differently than sucrose. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. No man spoke, but the woman said she would voluntarily let go of the rope, because, as a woman, she was used to giving up everything for her husband, kids and men in general, and was used to always making sacrifices with little in return. And once she found out that GMM proceeds go back into the community by supporting the non-profit Open Hand Atlanta, she was hooked. Plus the MAIN reason I am a fan is that all of the money raised by GMM goes to Open Hand Atlanta. But, since Jess covered them so well in a previous post, I can write about something more fun. And at worst, can lead to liver damage, certain cancers, decreased immune system, diabetes, stroke, and heart disease.
As far as some good brands to look out for, the key is to check out the label to avoid added sugar. Try eating your meal on a salad plate instead of an entree plate, and wait 15 minutes before going back for second helpings. Fortunately, for me, this is the time I get to indulge with my favorite summer fruits and vegetables: Strawberries and cucumbers! Those calories are the energy necessary for your heart to pump, your lungs to expand, and your lean muscles to be fueled. This means that instead of functioning at your normal (for example) 1700 calories necessary per day, your body has dropped and acclamated to functioning on (for example) 1000 calories per day.
But there were only a few key things that truly worried me: Losing direct access to water and running along it at sunrise, the ability to commute on foot and use public transportation, and the amazing food scene. Food is a topic on everyone’s tongue (no pun intended); not only do we have to eat to survive, but we are getting very creative with food composition and presentation.
I had a great resource for a few years, but as with many small businesses, they tanked when the economy did. I love that I can recommend healthy versions of southern favorites, like barbeque and fried chicken. Yes, I also order our Good Measure meal plans — I love the food, and they make meal time super convenient. Here are some of the best (and worst) gift ideas for your loved ones working towards a healthier lifestyle. These include irregular sleep patterns and unhealthful diets in addition to extended periods of inactivity. So, plasma has truer color and does better in darker rooms, and LCD has more vivid color and does better in bright rooms. Some other favorites include Tilapia Florentine with Brown Rice and Broccoli, Brunswick Stew with Cornbread, and Turkey Meatloaf with Parsley Potatoes. All the net proceeds from GMM go to support Open Hand, and Open Hand serves more than 6,500 meals a day to people who are home-bound seniors or less fortunate across 17 counties in Georgia (AMAZING)!!! And I highly suggest you serve them in your special occasion glassware to make them stand out. If you’re unsure of what appropriate portion sizes are, GMM can take the guesswork out of the equation and provide you with the right amount of food you need to achieve your goals. The only options left were national chains that made frozen and shelf stable meals filled with preservatives.
GMM’s Carolina style BBQ Pulled Chicken with Chow-Chow Relish, Field Peas and Chilled Banana Pudding is a delicious and healthy take on a meal that, if made elsewhere, could easily throw a week’s worth of calorie counting out the window. I am proud to work for Good Measure Meals, and having our meal plans to stand behind makes me feel great about what I do every day. A study in an obesity clinic examined the relationship between knowledge of appropriate foods and beverages needed for weight loss and the actual diet of patients seeking obesity treatment. And I didn’t even mention the excess calories you consume and the subsequent drop in blood glucose that make you feel hungrier than normal, which in turn makes you want to eat more than you need.
It’s also much easier to muster the energy for exercise after you’ve had a good night’s sleep.
I also love our Southern Style Oven-Fried Chicken, BBQ Beans, and Collard Greens, which tastes good enough to satisfy your craving for the traditional high-fat Southern meal. The study found that although the patients recognized what an appropriate diet plan included, they did not consume an appropriate diet for weight loss. But, therea€™s no such thing as a 1080p TV broadcast (cable, satellite, anything), and wona€™t be for years. Actually, it was an illustration for a Saturday Evening Post short story, a€?The Slipper Tongue,a€? about a slick-tongued horse thief fleeing a lynch mob.
All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. Athens, to honor god of wine & drama, Dionysus [Baccus], where comic actors wore padded phalluses as part of their costumes. Plus, I opted for more of what I had eaten with GMM- more fruits, whole grains, and baked and grilled foods.
Treatment approaches should include tools that help patients implement their nutrition knowledge.
