Eating red meat: Experts question studies on the impact of eating more red meat – CBS News

Healthy Eating
A review of recent research concludes eating red meat may not be as bad as once thought. But not all experts agree.The studies published in the Annals of Internal Medicine conclude there's little to no effects from eating meat on illnesses like heart disease, cancer or diabetes. The controversial study also recommends consumers who eat as much as four servings a week can continue to do so.Those results run counter to long established health guidelines to reduce the consumption of red and processed meats because of their links to cancer and poor cardiovascular health.In a statement, the non-profit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine called the results "misrepresentations" and said that there's abundant evidence linking red and processed meat to heart disease and "inc...

Healthy Eating
A new study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has found that Americans are gradually making healthier choices in their eating habits than they have in the past. The "report card" on the American diet, which came out earlier this week, analyzed the diets of 44,000 people and determined that we are eating 3% fewer highly processed foods with added sugars. "These positive trends are likely to reflect an increased public awareness of the health risks associated with high added sugar and low whole grain consumption," said Fang Fang Zhang, co-author of the paper and associate professor at Tuft's Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.It's an improvement, albeit a slim one, with definite room for improvement. The report also found that the average Ame...

CORRIGAN BY MISSY CORRIGANSpecial to The Sumter Item Ask anyone what makes a healthy meal, and you're likely to get varying opinions. Rarely do kids and adults agree, but then again rarely do many adults agree. Our food patterns, behaviors and beliefs develop throughout childhood, heavily influenced by the ones who raise us. Finding the balance between food kids need for proper growth and development and food they will actually eat can be an ongoing challenge. However, it is still important to learn the basics of healthy eating at a young age, or any age for that ma...

Healthy Eating on a Budget, by Charlyn Fargo – Creators Syndicate

Healthy Eating
My mom was the queen of doing her meal planning based on the grocery store flyer sales. When the flyer arrived in the mail, she would sit down and decide her menu for the week. Canned vegetables (at 3 for $1) were gathered to make a healthy chili for football season. When a bottom round roast went on sale, she would put it in the slow cooker and use the leftovers in a vegetable soup (using those canned veggies on sale). I still marvel at her planning skills and flexibility to use whatever was on sale that week. It forced her to be creative and try new recipes. Here are a few other tips for eating healthy on a budget, gleaned from watching her over the years: No. 1: Eat first, shop later. If you go to the grocery store hungry, you're likely to be an impulse shopper. Mom always went with...

A dietitian explains how you can eat healthy and delicious meals for just $7 a day – Well+Good

Healthy eating has a reputation for being like the Big Apple—and by that I mean overpriced. Here in New York City, everything is expensive it seems. I once waited in line for two hours to buy a $15 bagel, and I’ve paid $19 for Serendipity 3‘s Forbidden Broadway Sundae more times than I care to admit. But if you ask Ilana Muhlstein, MS, RDN, and Los Angeles-based dietitian, she’ll tell you that purchasing a full day of nutritious food only requires a mere $7.“It’s a misconception that healthy eating has to be expensive,” Muhlstein explains. “It’s possible to eat cups of veggies, fresh fruit, and lean proteins for just pennies a meal.” You read that right! Loose change between the couch cushions is enough to buy a healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner to fuel your daily activities. All you

Healthy Eating
American diets have gotten a little healthier, but still fall short of federal government recommendations for healthy eating, finds an analysis of nationally representative interview data from 1999 to 2016. The research, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, analyzes a total of 43,996 adults’ one-day diet logs collected over the study period. The analysis focuses on the macronutrients the participants reported consuming (i.e., protein, carbohydrates and fats) and the food sources from which they were derived. These food sources are further categorized — for example, carbohydrates derived from whole grains would be further classified as high-quality, whereas carbohydrates derived from foods containing added sugar would be considered low-quality.

Most of us would prefer to live in a world where pizza consumption is an indicator of a healthy, balanced diet. And thanks to Silvano Gallus, we just might.Well, sort of.Silvano Gallus, an epidemiologist working out of Milan, was recently awarded an Ig Nobel prize for his work toward “collecting evidence that pizza may prevent illness and death if the pizza is made and eaten in Italy.”WOMAN WITH LIFELONG FOOD PHOBIA ONLY EATS THIS ONE DISHIt'll probably come as no surprise that the Ig Nobel — it's awarded by the Annals of Improbable Research magazine — is not exactly on par with the Nobel Prize. This tongue-in-cheek honor aims to “celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative — and spur people’s interest in science, medicine, and technology,” per the publication.Still

Here’s a statistic that sticks in the throat: since the advent of agriculture, only 7,000 plant species out of a known 250,000 have been used by humans as food, according to UN biodiversity experts. Today, just 12 crops and five animal species make up 75 per cent of global calorie intake.This is just one factor driving a new movement: sustainable healthy eating. It is a new aspiration in dietary circles for two reasons: unhealthy diets put more people at risk from death and disease than unsafe sex, alcohol, drug and tobacco use combined; and global food production is the biggest single driver of environmental degradation.“Taken together, the outcome is dire,” noted a 2019 report by the EAT-Lancet Commission, an influential collective of 37 scientists from 16 countries, tasked with exami
