The Portion Control Diet

Author: Chrisanne SternalEnglish-Portion-Control-Plate-Webstore-size

Weight loss and dieting is a major struggle for millions of people. Being even slightly overweight can lead to some avoidable medical issues including joint pain. Many people suffer from secondary  Osteoarthritis  and harsh joint pain brought on by obesity.

Dieting and avoiding the foods you like can be very difficult, even if you are highly motivated. Therefore one method that has proved successful is portion control. Eating the same food you would normally just eating a little less of it. Instead of your normal portion try serving yourself a little less. Start out with about 3/4 of your normal serving and try to work to 1/2 within a few weeks.

If you are still cooking the same amount, make sure to put some away in a sealed plastic container to avoid coming back for seconds. If you’re eating out this may seem a little harder, because you’re not the one putting the food on the plate. And I know what you’re thinking, “if it’s there I will eat it”. Well, here’s how to combat that. When ordering at restaurant that has very large portions ask for a “to go” container when you place the order. This way you can move part or half of the portion to the “to go” container so it’s off your plate and out of site. As a bonus you just got two meals for the price of one.

With a smaller portion you may still feel a little hungry after you eat but wait 30 minutes before going back for more. Often it takes that long for the stomach to signal the brain that you have had enough and feel full.

Many fast eaters will often continue eating way more than they need, but because their eating so fast the body doesn’t have time to tell them to stop. By the time the body does send that signal they have completely stuffed themselves and feel bloated and ill.

So control your portions and give your body time to register what you ate. It will lead to a feeling of satisfaction after you’ve eaten and a healthier you.

Tendinitis Pain – Definition, Types and Diagnosis

Author: Chrisanne Sternaltendonitis_wrist

Tendinitis is a very common condition that is caused by inflammation of tendons which are flexible bands of tissue that connect bones and muscles. Tendinitis is usually brought on by repetitive injury of one area. This happens more often with age since the body becomes less flexible and more prone to injury. It can also be caused by infection, Arthritis, Gout, Thyroid Disease and Diabetes. Tendinitis is most often felt in knees, elbows, shoulders, wrists, hips or ankles.

Tendinitis effects people who perform repetitive motions or place a high amount of stress on their joints. Athletes, gardeners, musicians, dentists and carpenters are at high risk for Tendinitis. Some names for Tendinitis are associated with the sport where a repetitive motion causes it, like tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow or swimmer’s shoulder. Rotator cuff tendinitis causes pain in the shoulder and upper arm. Jumper’s Knee is also known as Knee tendinitis. Another common type of tendinitis takes place in the tendon connecting the muscle in the calf to the back of the heel. This is known as Achilles tendinitis. Each of these affects a different tendon in the body.

Doctors are able to diagnose tendinitis by considering the location and start of the pain, if it changes in severity through¬ out the day, and the factors that relieve or aggravate the pain are all important clues. Therapists and physicians will use manual tests called selective tissue tension tests to determine which tendon is involved, and then will palpate (a form of touching the tendon) specific areas of the tendon to pinpoint the area of inflammation. X rays do not show tendons, but may be helpful in ruling out problems in the bone or arthritis. In the case of a torn tendon, x rays may help show which tendon is affected. The doctor may also use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to confirm a partial or total tear. MRIs detect both bone and soft tissues like muscles, tendons and their coverings (sheaths). To rule out infection, the doctor may remove and test fluid from the inflamed area.

Flexcinâ„¢ is an all-natural Joint Pain Supplement that treats tendinitis. The primary component of Flexcin is CM8â„¢, which relieves joint pain at its source, reduces inflammation and irritation of the joints and tissues. It has been helpful for many sufferers of arthritis, tendinitis, gout, bursitis, sports injuries and fibromyalgia.

Women: Thigh Muscles and Knee Osteoarthritis

Author: Chrisanne Sternalthigh strengthening

Researchers at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics found that women with the strongest quadriceps muscles appeared to be protected against the development of knee osteoarthritis (OA).

Timothy Spaulding, a Top Health Blogger for the Arthritis Community on Well sphere  and author of the  Current Arthritis News and Research Blog  explains the study’s results:

“The team, led by Neil Segal, M.D., M.S., followed over 3,000 women and men over a 2 ½ year period in the Multicenter Knee Osteoarthritis Study (MOST). The participants were between the ages of 50 and 79 years.

The goal of the study was to determine whether knee extensor strength would be a predictor of radiographic OA or symptomatic OA. Radiographic osteoarthritis is OA that can be determined through X-ray. Symptomatic osteoarthritis is OA that is determined by symptoms of pain, stiffness and aching on most days of the month.

Participants were evaluated for thigh muscle strength using a device that measures the strength of different muscle groups. X-rays were taken at the beginning of the study and at the end to determine whether there was evidence of OA. The participants were also surveyed at the beginning and end of the study to establish if frequent pain, aching or stiffness was present in the knee.

By the end of the study 5% men (48 of 680) and 10%women (93 of 937) developed OA detected by x-ray. In addition, at the conclusion of the study 10.1% of women and 7.8% of men displayed signs of symptomatic knee OA.

“Our results showed thigh muscle strength was not a significant predictor of radiographic knee OA,” concluded the authors.

“Women in the top third of thigh muscle strength had a lower incidence of symptomatic knee OA, while men with strong thigh muscles had only slightly better odds of developing OA symptoms compared to men with weaker thigh muscles.”

Details of this study appear in the September issue of  Arthritis Care & Research.

In many cases,   Flexcin   can help alleviate the pain associated with knee osteoarthritis. The primary component of Flexcin™ is CM8™ (cetyl myristoleate). Of all the ingredients in Flexcin, CM8™ is the most powerful. CM8™ functions in three different ways. First, it acts as a highly effective lubricant in the joints, muscles and other tissues, allowing them to move smoothly. Decrease or loss of morning stiffness is commonly noted shortly after commencing treatment. Next, CM8™ functions as an anti-inflammatory. Relief from swollen joints is often seen after the 4th or 5th week of treatment. Third, it is also an immune system modulator, which can be effectual against autoimmune diseases, such as arthritic conditions. CM8™ relieves joint pain at its source, reducing inflammation and irritation of the joints and tissues.
