It is well known that good nutrition, exercise and stress management help to maintain a healthy body, which can then reduce the cost of future medical bills, said Dr. Keith Horinouchi.
Horinouchi is a lifestyle medicine and nutrition specialist and likens the human body to an automobile.
“A car may be missing some spark plugs (or) maybe the oil is kind of low,” Horinouchi said, but the only way to know is to run assessments to see what exactly is wrong with the car.
“Well, there is a different number of tests that can be done or assessments to find out what nutrients are missing in our body,” Horinouchi said. He said, like a well-maintained car, people should stay healthy, “so every day we can experience health and wellness and avoid going to the acute care and emergency care.”
Horinouchi said many ailments senior citizens complain of are “chronic lifestyle diseases.”
“That means it’s our habits, our diets, stress, or lack of exercise … that cause these diseases,” Horinouchi said.
Some examples he gave of these chronic lifestyle diseases are hypertension, diabetes, obesity, heart disease and arthritis.
“It’s possible to reverse some of these chronic lifestyle diseases by improving some of our lifestyle habits,” Horinouchi said.
According to data provided by the Guam Department of Public Health and Social Services, the No. 1 leading cause of death on Guam is heart disease. Diabetes is the fifth cause of death and kidney failure is the 10th on the Public Health list.
“We see that the diabetes trend is going up,” said Patrick Luces, program coordinator for the Guam Diabetes Prevention and Control Program at Public Health. He said the rate of obesity — which can lead to Type II diabetes — also has risen through the years.
Public Health data also show the largest population of diabetics on Guam are in people ages 55 and above. In 2009, 19.9 percent of the Guam population living with diabetes were ages 55 through 64, and 22 percent were 65 and above.
“We need more education and intervention for the diabetics,” said Horinouchi.
Horinouchi said Guam’s “island diet” makes it easy to develop diabetes.
“Basically, our island diet is meat and rice, so you combine those two: the high fat from the meat and the rice, which is turned into sugar,” Horinouchi said.
Horinouchi thinks many people on Guam are malnourished.
“We’re just not getting enough of the balanced nutrients: a lot of the B vitamins, the minerals, all of these things that come from the plant food.”
Public Health data show only 24.3 percent of the Guam population in 2009 were getting five or more servings of a combination of fruits or vegetables a day.
“I think it’s important that no matter how old we are or how old we want to live, we should live healthy up till the end,” Horinouchi said. “I don’t think anyone wants to live sick, because if you’re sick and you’re alive, you can’t really enjoy life and you’re just a burden to your family.”
Adding regular exercise in your day-to-day life doesn’t have to be strenuous, Horinouchi said.
“The point is that you’re moving around,” Horinouchi said. He recommends 150 minutes of walking a week, or if you want to lose weight, he recommends bumping it up to 300 minutes.
“No matter how old you live to be, I think you should have a good quality of life, and be healthy and live well,” Horinouchi said.
CAP D’ANTIBES, France — Janet Jackson may have joined the ranks of diet plan celebrity spokeswomen Jennifer Hudson and Mariah Carey, but she insists there’s absolutely no competition among the slimmed-down singers.
The 46-year-old became a spokesperson for NutriSystem in December and credits the diet company for helping her lose weight, though she’s keeping quiet about the exact number she’s lost.
“You know I think it’s great that all the girls, or as many as possible, can stand up and try to help as many people as possible. That’s really what it’s about. It’s not about competing with each other, not for me,” said Jackson in a plunging neckline Pucci gown at amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS gala Thursday in Cap D’Antibes, France.
“I took off all that extra stuff I really didn’t need and I feel really good,” she said.
Carrey became the spokesperson for Jenny Craig after dropping 30 pounds (13.6 kilograms) with their plan and a toned Hudson is seen singing the praises of Weightwatchers in the company’s commercials.
But it wasn’t all glitz and glam for Jackson, who traveled the south of France to co-share the annual amfAR charity event. The recent loss of industry legends Donna Summer and Robin Gibb still weighed heavily on her mind.
“They’ve brought so much joy to this world,” said Jackson on the red carpet. “I remember being 11-years-old, going to New York and I was visiting Mike (Jackson), he was working on ‘The Wiz’ and I was on hiatus from shooting the show ‘Good Times’ and we would always listen to ‘How Deep is your Love’, that was the song of my trip, he and I. So it was such incredible memories of them.”
Gibb, a founding member of the Bee Gees, died May 20 following a battle with cancer and intestinal surgery. Disco icon Summer died May 17 of lung cancer.
Right now Jackson is busy working on new music, which she says is still in the “beginning stages.”
“Everything I’ve done, it’s always been different here or there, from one album to the next, a mixture of stuff. So we’ll see,” she said.
Natasha Turner is one of North America’s most prominent naturopathic doctors. Her three books, The Hormone Diet, The Super-Charged Hormone Diet and The Carb Sensitivity Program are all bestsellers (maybe one is even on your shelf). Her work has appeared in numerous publications, and she recently appeared on the Marilyn Denis show with Suzanne Somers.
Like myself, Natasha promotes treating the root cause of illness with natural therapies. Her newest book lays out a plan to combat insulin resistance, a phenomenon that we learned about in my previous column. When you treat insulin resistance, weight loss is a natural side effect. I was so pleased to find another ND promoting this concept that I had to bring her to you in an interview.
Andrea Hilborn: What is The Carb Sensitivity Program?
Natasha Turner: Over time, I noticed that a small percentage of people did not respond to the Hormone Diet (outlined The Hormone Diet). They experienced more cravings and did not continue to lose weight. Only healthy carbohydrates were included in the Hormone Diet, but when I looked into those carbs more closely, I found that they varied greatly in net carbs. For example, in squash, there are four grams of net carbs but in sweet potato there are 20. I also learned that everyone has a unique response to carbs. The more sensitive a person is, the greater then insulin spike they experience after eating. The Carb Sensitivity Program builds on the Hormone Diet and works for everyone.
AH: What is carb sensitivity?
NT: The more carb sensitive you are, the more blood sugar imbalance you have. Your insulin is higher and insulin is the one and only hormone that tells your body to store fat, even if you are eating only healthy carbs. You do not need blood work to identify carb sensitivity — you will experience cravings, weight gain and belly fat.
AH: You get carb sensitive people to do a Metabolic Repair’ program — what’s that?
NT: The purpose of the metabolic repair program is to get insulin down by decreasing the release of insulin through nutritional choices and by increasing the body’s sensitivity to insulin through supplementation, exercise and super foods. The analogy I like is of someone who is hard of hearing. You want your pancreas (the organ that secretes insulin) to only have to whisper for the rest of the body to hear it.
AH: A lot of people get intense carb cravings; what do you recommend to combat carb cravings?
NT: The Carb Sensitivity Program outlines a five-step process to decrease cravings: sleep well and manage stress; keep your digestive tract working; keep warm and soak up some sun; enjoy regular sex and use supplements to balance brain chemistry and beat stress. These things will prevent carbohydrate cravings and the cravings will also be gone by the end of Day 4. If you are in the midst of a craving, try opening a 500 mg capsule of glutamine under your tongue or chew a Nusera lozenge from Metagenics.
AH: What are your favourite supplements?
NT: The Clear Medicine Metabolic Repair pack is my absolute favourite because it includes nutrients that are depleted by having high insulin and nutrients that increase insulin sensitivity. If I had to choose just the most crucial supplements, they would be Vitamin D, fish oil and a probiotic.
AH: What is more important, supplements or nutrition?
NT: Nutrition first, definitely. However, for certain nutrients, it is almost essential to have sufficient levels in order to lose weight. Vitamin D, for example.
AH: What has been the biggest obstacle to losing weight for your patients?
NT: Lack of time in the kitchen. Many people do not spend a lot of time cooking. I had one patient in her eighties who hadn’t cooked in seven years. Now she is using the recipes from The Carb Sensitivity Program and loving cooking. Some people just choose four to five recipes from the book and rotate through them, or prepare meals ahead of time. If someone is really struggling, I suggest picking one day in the menu plan and repeating the recipes for three days. All the recipes were designed by myself and my team and each one meets and lot of different criteria because they are compatible with both the Hormone Diet and The Carb Sensitivity Program.
AH: What would you say to someone who has tried a lot of different weight loss systems and never had success?
NT: You haven’t figured out your carb sensitivities. It’s the No. 1 reason.
AH: Tell me your favourite success story.
NT: It’s hard to pick out just one, but some of my favourites are women who come in with polycystic ovarian syndrome. They lose weight, their blood work normalizes and they get pregnant.
Finally, I had to ask Natasha what she eats for breakfast. “Eggs, feta cheese and tomatoes,” was her reply. One patient in her book describes her has a “dynamo of contagious energy”, so I guess it’s a winning combination.

A brand-new website at http://diet-weight-loss-center.info/ helps people lose weight fast for summer. The diet and weight loss site provides two different options for significant weight loss.
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRWEB) May 25, 2012
Just in time for summer, swim suits and shorts, a brand-new diet, detox and weight loss website at http://diet-weight-loss-center.info/ provides the latest plans for losing weight at home. Developed by celebrity fitness pro John Spencer Ellis, who offered his expertise on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County, the proven diet and weight loss programs include both a nine-day and 30-day detox option.
The average weight loss in the nine-day detox and cleansing diet program is seven pounds; this program includes premium nutrients through high-quality Isagenix supplements to spur fat loss. In addition, the 30-day program is designed for men and women interested in losing more weight over a longer period of time – the nine-day program can also be incorporated into the 30-day plan.
“This system provides a groundbreaking path to better health and weight loss as it helps the body gently get rid of potentially harmful impurities and replace them with essential vitamins,” said Ellis, founder of John Spencer Ellis Enterprises, a personal development and fitness solutions company. “These two natural weight loss programs are simple to use and incredibly effective.”
In addition to consistent weight loss over time, other benefits of the diet and detox programs include increased energy, reduced cravings for unhealthy food, improved muscle tone and balanced digestion.
“For more than 20 years, I have enjoyed helping people lose weight, get fit and enjoy better health, so that they can both look and feel younger,” Ellis added. “I know what truly works for weight loss and what doesn’t – and these two programs really do get results.”
In addition, Ellis is the co-author of the recent Amazon #1 bestseller, “The Wellness Code,” which offers advice from top professionals on the latest tips for improved health and wellness.

WASHINGTON, May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ –
Expert Panel Discusses the Roles of Public and Private Sectors in Addressing Obesity to Ensure Military Readiness –
Weight Watchers International, Inc. and National Journal today convened a policy summit to examine the growing national security threat posed by a shrinking pool of Americans lean enough to serve in the military.
At a time when U.S. forces are stretched thin overseas, obesity is the leading medical disqualifier for military service. Some 27 percent of potential recruits between the ages of 17-24 would weigh too much to qualify to enlist in the armed forces.[i] This presents a security threat for the nation as it creates challenges for the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps, who together must attract more than 184,000 new recruits annually.[ii]
“It is time to ensure that our population’s excess weight does not weaken our military forces,” said David Kirchhoff, CEO and President of Weight Watchers, International, Inc., which underwrote the event. “We convened this Summit with National Journal because it is vital to work together to address the fact that too many otherwise eligible men and women who want to serve their country can’t because they weigh too much to qualify. Our goal today is to help develop and highlight resources to help current and prospective service-men and -women achieve and maintain a healthy weight.”
Over the past 50 years, the number of age-eligible men who exceed the U.S. Army’s entry standards for weight-for-height and body fat percentage has more than doubled. For military-age women, the figure has more than tripled.[iii]
The problem extends beyond enrollment as well: the military discharges about 1,200 first-term enlistees annually before their contracts expire due to weight problems.[iv] Replacement costs per discharge cost the military $50,000, or more than $60 million per year. Additionally, medical care associated with excess weight and obesity costs the military more than $1.1 billion annually.[v]
These issues are beginning to receive national attention. In February, Pentagon officials teamed with First Lady Michelle Obama to announce plans to revise nutrition standards across military branches for the first time in 20 years. The new standards are designed to give troops and their families more access to fresh fruits and vegetables, more whole grains, lean meats and low-fat dairy products. The healthier choices will be turning up in service member dining halls and military base schools, vending machines and snack bars.
Today’s policy summit, which was moderated by National Journal managing editor Maggie Fox, featured leading experts on the topic, including Rear Admiral James A. Barnett, Jr., U.S. Navy (Retired), Member, Executive Advisory Council, Mission: Readiness (Keynote address); Marian Tanofsky-Kraff, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Christie Ferguson, Director, STOP Obesity Alliance, Tracy Fox, MPH, RD, President, Food, Nutrition Policy Consultants, and Colonel Heidi A. Warrington, Chief Nurse Executive, U.S. Army Public Health Command.
Among the insights highlighted at the summit is the growing body of scientific research that shows the effectiveness and affordability of community-based weight loss programs. For example, a recent study indicated that that a brief intervention by a physician, that included referral to the community-based weight loss program Weight Watchers, helped overweight and obese adults lose more than twice as much weight as those who received standard care alone.[vi] Community-based weight loss programs such as Weight Watchers engage participants and offer group support for long-term behavioral change and sustainable weight loss. They are also scalable, offering the potential to support weight management efforts on military bases and in military communities.
Weight Watchers is committed to offering innovative solutions to ensure our eligible servicemen and women are not prevented from serving the country due to weight concerns, and that help members of the military and their families live healthy lifestyles.
About Weight Watchers International, Inc. Weight Watchers International, Inc. is the world’s leading provider of weight management services, operating globally through a network of Company-owned and franchise operations.

FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., May 23, 2012 — /PRNewswire/ – Nutrisystem (NASDAQ: NTRI), a leading provider of weight management products and services, today announced that it has been named a National Strategic Partner of the American Diabetes Association in recognition of its commitment to support the mission and the Association’s movement to Stop Diabetes®.
Nutrisystem offers the Nutrisystem® D® program, the leading home-delivered weight loss program clinically tested, in combination with weekly counseling sessions, to help people with type 2 diabetes lose weight and manage their blood glucose. Nutrisystem D also meets the nutritional guidelines of the American Diabetes Association.
Diabetes is one of the fastest growing health problems facing the nation, with nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States living with the disease. Another 79 million, or one in three American adults, have pre-diabetes, which puts them at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is a leading cause of adult blindness, kidney failure, lower limb amputations and premature death. Obesity is a major risk factor of type 2 diabetes, but research has shown that by losing about 7% of your body weight or about 15 pounds for someone who weighs 200 pounds, diabetes may be delayed or prevented. Weight loss is also helpful in the management of type 2 diabetes.
“We are honored to be recognized as a national strategic partner of the American Diabetes Association, whose worthy mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by this disease,” said Dr. Bruce Daggy, Chief Science Officer at Nutrisystem. “At Nutrisystem, we have sponsored clinical research on diabetes and related conditions with the goal of understanding how nutrition can help people better manage their type 2 diabetes. With Nutrisystem D, we offer a program of balanced nutrition which meets the nutritional guidelines of the Association and helps people with type 2 diabetes lose weight and manage their blood glucose.”
Nutrisystem has been committed to the American Diabetes Association’s mission at the national and regional level for a number of years. Nutrisystem and its employees have been leading supporters of StepOut: Walk to Stop Diabetes, a fun family walk designed to raise awareness and help fund research, information and advocacy efforts of the Association. Nutrisystem has also supported the Association’s efforts to raise awareness around American Diabetes Association Alert Day® and the Working Together to Stop Diabetes® movement, and has undertaken its own activities aimed at spreading the word about the benefits of losing weight in helping to prevent or manage type 2 diabetes.
“Through its support of the American Diabetes Association, Nutrisystem is helping to further our movement to Stop Diabetes,” said Robert E. Ratner, Chief Scientific Medical Officer, MD, FACP, FACE, of the American Diabetes Association. “Weight loss is critical for helping those with type 2 diabetes better manage their disease and lead a healthier life.”
Introduced in December 2004 as the “Nutrisystem for Diabetics” Program, the Nutrisystem D program, in combination with weekly counseling sessions, was clinically tested and results were announced in 2009. The Company undertook a second clinical trial in 2011. Results of a third clinical study of Nutrisystem D will be presented at the annual conference of the American Diabetes Association in Philadelphia, PA, on June 10, 2012. Nutrisystem D follows the low-glycemic, reduced-calorie, portion-controlled approach of all Nutrisystem® plans, which simplifies the task of following a healthy diet. Diets that are low in glycemic index have been shown in multiple studies to add to the favorable effect of weight loss on A1C among people with type 2 diabetes.
Two clinical trials have shown that the Nutrisystem D program, in combination with behavioral counseling sessions, is effective in helping people living with type 2 diabetes to lose weight and manage their blood glucose. The first study, conducted at the Temple University School of Medicine and published in the journal Postgraduate Medicine in 2009, showed that Nutrisystem D helped overweight individuals with type 2 diabetes achieve significant improvements in body weight and hemoglobin A1C (a 90-day measure of blood glucose control).
In the 2009 study, 79% of the Nutrisystem D participants met the American Diabetes Association’s target A1C for good glycemic control. Participants who received the Nutrisystem D intervention also achieved significantly greater reductions in systolic blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, and waist circumference, relative to the control group. The Nutrisystem D participants also reported significant improvements in quality-of-life. The first study did not include persons who were using insulin to control their type 2 diabetes.
A second clinical study was completed in 2011 at Temple University and the University of Pennsylvania and was presented at the 2011 annual conference of the Obesity Society. The results of this study confirmed the improvements seen in the 2009 study in both key outcome measures: weight loss and A1C reduction. In addition, prescriptions for diabetes medications were tracked in this six-month study and more than a quarter of the participants on the Nutrisystem D program had their diabetes medications reduced by their primary care physicians while on the study. Subjects with type 2 diabetes taking all common diabetes medications, including insulin, were included in the 2011 study.
Having helped Americans lose millions of pounds over the last 40 years, Nutrisystem, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTRI) develops evidence-based programs for healthy weight management, and is the leading provider of home-delivered weight loss meal plans. Nutrisystem offers balanced nutrition in the form of low glycemic index meal plans designed for men and women, including seniors, vegetarians and the Nutrisystem® D® program for people with diabetes or at risk for type 2 diabetes. Nutrisystem® plans include a wide variety of pantry and fresh-frozen entrees and snacks to aid in program satisfaction and adherence, as well as transition plans to support long-term success. The Fort Washington, PA-based company also provides weight management support and counseling by trained weight-loss coaches and registered dietitians, as well as through an engaged online community, online tools and trackers, mobile apps, cookbooks and more. Healthcare professionals may learn more about the programs by visiting www.nutrisystem.com/hcp. Nutrisystem® weight loss plans are available directly to consumers through www.nutrisystem.com, by phone (1-800-435-4074) and at select retailers. The Company has also introduced a new in-store retail line, Nutrisystem® Everyday™ products, comprised of nutritionally balanced bars, smoothies, bakery and breakfast items aimed at consumers who aspire to eat healthier.

Molly Sims is about to take on a new role — as a first time mom — and she couldn’t me more thrilled!
The Las Vegas star is featured on the June/July 2012 cover of Fit Pregnancy magazine, where she reveals all of her pregnancy secrets, from what she is eating and how she is staying in shape to what kind of mother she thinks she will be.
“I’m trying to be really healthy, and I’ve switched to a mostly plant-based diet,” the 39-year-old dishes, revealing that she has been working with vegan chef Cody Chaet from trendy Los Angeles restaurant Café Gratitude to help her with her healthy eating. And although a chilled apple may curb her cravings at moments, she indulges every now and then.
“I also love fries and pizza; the carbs in both helped with my morning sickness early on.”
To stay in shape, Molly has been training with Tracy Anderson, doing low-impact cardio, a band workout for her arms and some leg work.
Sims plans on being a good mom, but don’t expect her to be her son’s BFF!
“I’m going to be very hands-on,” she explains.
“I know I’ll be really protective; even now I cover up my belly when I watch Law Order so hecan’t hear it.
Also in the interview, Sims discusses her birthing plans, her maternity style and what baby gear she and her husband, producer Scott Stuber, will be sporting when their bundle of joy arrives this summer.
