For those who know me in person, they have often heard me say that nutritional philosophy is a bit like religion. Perceived beliefs are strongly held and defended, often developed from childhood, for better or for worse. I am mindful of that in my nutritional counseling to patients because if the message does not resonate or appears critical, change is not going to happen. However, along the lines of my last post, when physicians, especially surgeons advocate poor nutritional advice, promising improved outcomes after taking five days of manufactured goo, I need to step in not so gently.

Inflammation is a pathological condition underlying a number of diseases including cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and chronic inflammatory diseases such as arthritis. A high intake of vegetables, limited fruit, and limited grains provides a wide spectrum of bioactive compounds at health-promoting concentrations. In numerous studies, healthy (relatively so), obese subjects also show markers of inflammation in their blood. A whole food diet provides a variety of nutrients as well as non-nutritive bioactive components which help with boosting your immune system and decreasing the inflammatory processes. Scientists who study population data have also suggested that *sustained* dietary patterns strongly affect inflammatory processes. Primarily the intake of fruit and vegetables as well as of whole grains is inversely associated with the risk of inflammation. In addition to observational studies there are also data from human intervention studies suggesting an anti-inflammatory potential of these plant foods. All these findings lead to the conclusion that there is convincing evidence that plant foods by means of anti-inflammatory activities, may contribute to the lower risk of cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

So what does all this translate to on your grocery list or truly nutritious diet in preparation for surgery? Here is what is on my list: turmeric, ginger, kale, spinach, blueberries, walnuts, green tea, and a variety of seeds. Hmm, these might even make a good smoothie too..... #rx4living #eatyourmedicine #postoprecovery

{new} Zucchini Chicken Enchilada Roll-Ups 😍😍👌 {Happy Weekend friends! Here's some comfort food made gluten free, low carb, and pretty darn healthy (but crazy delicious!!! ) to add to your plans! Hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

makes about 4-5 servings
Ingredients:
1lb. chicken breasts, or tenders
2 Tbsp avocado oil, extra-virgin olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
1.5 cups enchilada sauce, gluten free, divided
4 large zucchini (I used both yellow and green ones), sliced with a wide peeler, or mandolin
1/4 cup shredded cheese
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In large skillet over medium, heat the oil.
Add chicken breasts and cook for about 6 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle.
Season with sea salt and pepper then set aside on a board. Once it's cooled a bit, shred it using 2 forks.
In the same pan add in the onion and cook for about 3 minutes until translucent. Add the garlic and spices, then return the shredded chicken to the pan.
Pour in 1 cup of enchilada sauce then stir well until combined.
On a cutting board, lay out 4-5 zucchini slices slightly overlapping each other. Add spoonful of chicken mixture on top at one end as shown. Roll up and transfer carefully to a baking dish.
Repeat with remaining zucchini and chicken mixture.
Drizzle the remaining enchilada sauce on top and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes and until cheese is melted. Enjoy!

Hi! My name is Lori. I'm a member of the Selma Weight Loss Clinic and I'm a food addict. I reluctantly joined the program in November. I had a physical with my family doctor in Sept and we talked about my weight and she recommended the weight loss clinic. I said that I would be interested because I knew I should be. I left her office and started eating. The clinic called me three times before I picked up the phone. My first visit did not go well. I've been on the diet roller coaster for the last ten years. Ten years ago, my best friend had a dr appointment and was told she needed to lose 30lbs so she decided that we needed to go on a diet and lose 30lbs together. I was quite skeptical. I was a happy size 14 with a closet full of beautiful clothes. I decided that I was willing to try to lose 10lbs. I lost 30. I went down to a size 8. I looked and felt great. I threw away my beautiful clothes because they were too big and I was never going to be that big again. I was thin for less than a year when I got mono. All I could do was work, eat and sleep. I started to gain, but I felt miserable so it wasn't my fault, right? The food made me feel better so I "needed" it... Then my husband lost his job. I kept eating my stress and my feelings. I was soon bigger than when I started. I tried here and there to "get back into it!" but without much success. Something clicked 3 years ago and I lost 20lbs and was back to being a size 14. Then our house caught on fire so I ate again. Life seemed too hard and too overwhelming to deal with so I ate to not deal. Food made me happy. I remember deciding, and saying out loud, that I was just going to get bigger clothes and get fat because dealing with the weight was too hard. That's how I ended up a size 18 and 216lbs and in need of the weight loss clinic. I was so hesitant to join because I didn't want to report to anyone or answer for my food intake. I didn't want to be accountable. In my everyday life, I'm the boss and everyone answers to me. When I found out that it was low carb, I was less than polite. I've done low carb. It's how I lost weight both times before. I know how to do that. I wanted them to teach me what I didn't know how to do, which was maintain. They told me it was a process and that I had to learn to change my lifestyle. I've done that. I didn't want to go back to eating grilled chicken all the time. Ugh! I was angry and doubtful. I started with the products, but I'm a food addict and I wasn't willing to give up my food. Also, I knew that I couldn't make a life with the products, so I have had to carve my own journey in some ways. I'm a McDonald's general manager, so fast food is my livelihood. I have worked at McD's for over 20 years and I still eat there on my days off. I love the food. I cannot thank Missy and Mindy enough for their support and patience. I have lost 37lbs as of today. I'm back to where I started 10 years ago and it is playing with me mentally. I've worked so hard to get here and I feel like I'm back at the beginning. I'm also bitter about the fact that I still have another 30lbs to go. Ugh! I'm kinda stuck right now. I've been hovering around this weight for the last month. I go back and forth with the exercise. I love being outside and walking, but my schedule doesn't always allow it. I hate the gym and I'll find any excuse to not go and lately the excuses have won a lot more than the discipline. I know it's a viscous cycle - I don't exercise because I'm tired and I'm tired because I don't exercise... I know all of this and everyday I tell myself that today I'm going to eat healthy and I'm going to exercise. On the days I don't, I beat myself up. I'm always certain that the glass of wine or the french fries are going to make me fat again. I feel like I'll be able to look down and see myself gaining all of the weight back because I ate something unhealthy and then didn't go to the gym in the same day. I was so certain that I didn't need help and that there was no way that I would thrive off of regular weigh ins and talking about what I ate and how I felt. I was so wrong. I have learned so much and I'm so grateful for the help. There is no way that I would have gotten this far on my own. I would have given up long ago. When I'm so hard on myself, Missy and Mindy remind me that it's a process and that I'm not gonna fix it overnight. When I'm cutting myself too much slack and am stuck at the same weight for a month, Missy gives me a kick in the butt and gets me going in the right direction again. I don't know if this made any sense or if anyone read the whole way through, but I'm sharing because I'm stuck and need help. There are days when I leave work and I didn't eat any french fries or have a caramel sundae and I want to celebrate that, but the people around me don't understand why it's a big deal. There are days when I had the fries AND the sundae (can y'all see Dr. Peake cringing right now?) ;) and I need someone to remind me that I won't gain 30lbs in one day and that tomorrow is another day. Also, I would love to help support someone else with their journey. I think it would help me to know that I'm not alone and that other people understand.
