Dr. Gourmet Newsletter: September 27, 2010

Dr. Tim Says....

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.This week's newsletter comes to you with a lot of great stuff. As always there are new recipes and we have super articles by Nurse Faith and Dr. Jacques Courseault. Make sure to read Dr. Jacques' article as it reports on research on how exercise helps you control your appetite.

Even cooler, we wanted to let you know that we've completely revamped our exercise section! Now there are easy to follow exercise programs from beginner to advanced, to make getting healthy simple for you. All of the plans have videos of Dr. Jacques to show you the right way to exercise.

We're excited because this helps us complement the information about why and how to eat healthy. Not only do we have recipes and tools to help you plan your menus and eat healthier, we've added practical exercise information to provide you with a complete guide to a healthy lifestyle. We think you'll enjoy these additions to the site and want to thank you for letting us be a part of your healthy life.

Eat well, eat healthy, enjoy life! (And exercise!)

Curried Chicken Thigh Burgers with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

Chicken BurgerI do love chicken thighs. They are so savory and the sweet curry marinade goes perfectly. This recipe is a great alternative to burgers and can really spice up your weeknight meal or next cookout.

Exercise Improves Eating Habits
Exercise with Jacques Courseault, M.D.

Jacques CourseaultIt's no secret that overeating and sedentary living are the most important factors that contribute to the obesity epidemic that Americans are facing today. We all have great excuses for why we don't exercise. In fact, a recent article in "Time" magazine reports on research that suggests that exercise will not help you lose weight. Yes, the biology of caloric management is not fully understood; however, researchers are beginning to show that exercise does have an effect on eating, and their results are encouraging.

A Healthy Pregnancy
with Faith Bontrager, RN, BSN

Faith Bontrager, RN, BSNExercise provides many health benefits to all of us, but there are extra benefits for pregnant women. Exercise helps keep weight gain at appropriate levels. It may help prevent gestational diabetes. It decreases problems with constipation, which also helps avoid hemorrhoids. It certainly helps you feel better. Physicians debate whether being physically fit decreases the length of labor (maybe) but it does help prepare a woman for the physically hard work of labor. Pregnancy - a time to be ACTIVE!
