#891 Health Benefits of Gardening

Posted on: Tue, Apr 17, 2018, at 5:01 am

This is Judy Gaman, author of the award winning book Age to Perfection: How to Thrive to 100, Happy, Healthy, and Wise and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute.  Each day I bring you one new tip that will help you stay young and vibrant. Do you have a green thumb? If not, you should get one. Gardening has been proven to relieve stress and increase longevity. Connecting with the earth, the smells of the fresh herbs, and the simple exercise that comes with tending a garden all play a role in improving health. In two different studies, people in their 60s and 70s who regularly gardened had a 36% and 47% lower risk of developing dementia. My challenge to you is to find a place to garden, even if it is a small space, and plant something. Make this the year you enjoy nature and eat the fruits of your labor.

#890 Eating at Home

Posted on: Mon, Apr 16, 2018, at 5:00 am

This is Judy Gaman, author of the award winning book Age to Perfection: How to Thrive to 100, Happy, Healthy, and Wise and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute.  Each day I bring you one new tip that will help you stay young and vibrant. As a society we have become way too dependent on eating out. Did you know that eating at home can help you lose weight? Restaurants are all about the taste and wanting you to come back. They accomplish that by injecting their food with oil, butter, and sugar. The average person curbs their meal by 130 calories by choosing to make their food themselves. I say we start a movement where we not only cook and eat at home, but we focus on teaching our kids to do the same. We want to empower you with as much health information as possible.

#885 Don’t Toss the Yolk!

Posted on: Tue, Apr 10, 2018, at 5:01 am

Are you an egg white eater? You really should rethink eating the yolk. This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. For years, eggs got a bad rap. All the initial research on eggs raising cholesterol and adding to heart disease risk has been debunked. The reality is that eggs, including the yolk, are very nutritious and healthy and don’t have any significant risk for increasing bad cholesterol and causing heart disease. In fact, almost all or the nutrients in an egg are found in the yolk. One egg has only 75 calories but is packed with protein -7 grams of pure high-quality protein and only 5 grams of fat. The yolks contain iron, and numerous vitamins and other minerals. As a matter of fact, they contain high amounts of vitamin D3, a vitamin that many Americans are deficient in. Not all eggs are created equal and I recommend that you opt for eggs from free range chickens. So go ahead, start your day with two scrambled eggs. The protein will help keep you full and the nutrients will power up your brain for the full day ahead. This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to … Continue reading #885 Don’t Toss the Yolk!

#884 Drink Water to Lose Weight

Posted on: Mon, Apr 09, 2018, at 5:00 am

How much water do you drink per day? I bet it’s not enough. This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. There’s a formula for how much water you need to drink. It goes like this. Take the number of pounds you weight and cut that number in half. So if you weigh 200 lbs you need 100 ounces of water per day. Most of us barely get half that amount. Not only is proper hydration good for your skin and your brain function, drinking more water could help you lose weight. Some research shows that drinking 64 ounces or water in the morning can increase your metabolism by 24-30%. Don’t let hydration be an afterthought, instead drink at least 12 ounces of water in the first hour you are awake and continue drinking so that you hit that target number, half your body weight by dinner. Anything after should be considered a bonus. Remember, coffee and tea don’t count because the caffeine content has a dehydrating effect. This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in proactive and preventative health.
