Diabetes Living Tips for Your Mental Well Being During the Holidays

Friday, November 16, 2018

We all know that our mental well being and physical health are inextricably intertwined. If we ignore one it affects the other. Conversely, when we nurture our well being, we can directly affect our health. This is particularly true during busy, hectic times like the holidays. To stay in control, keep on track with managing our diabetes, and avoid the pitfalls of feeling overwhelmed, here are some mental health tips to practice:

1. Work to be and stay present each day, especially around food.
2. Think ahead; know your personal fire drill to avoid making unhealthy decisions and make sure to review it before heading out to a party or holiday event.

3. Plan ahead; make sure to build in balance not only with your food but also with building in time to care for yourself.
4. Take time to meditate...and just...breathe.

5. Start and end the day with gratitude; think of one thing that will make your day a better day and work towards it...at the end of the day make sure to find and ponder a few moments in the day that made you feel good.

Make a commitment to yourself to follow these tips up until the New Year. Next think about how to make them part of your daily routine throughout the year. You deserve it!

New Research “disses” small plates…what then is the answer?

Friday, November 2, 2018

Answer: Livliga’s right-sized plates remain the long-term answer for healthy eating

People are beginning to realize that there really is a big psychological difference between right-sized plates and small plates. New research further proves small plates don’t curb appetite when you are hungry and need help to manage how much you eat in that moment.

Research is confirming we can’t and don’t trick our eyes with small plates. Actually, there is more than one study out there making it evident that small, salad-sized plates are not the long-term solution for success. The proof is mounting that we end up eating more, not less.

First, a recent study by experts at the University of Liverpool in England analyzed whether small plates really did cause people to eat less. What they found was quite the opposite. What they saw was that people, in truth, often went back for seconds BECAUSE they were using a small plate and therefore could justify eating more.

Now there is more scientific evidence to prove that small plates don’t actually help us eat less, especially when we are hungry. Turns out, according to recent research out of the Ben-Gurion University in Israel, that when we are hungry, our eyes are not fooled by how food looks to us on a small plate. Our eyes see the plate as small and the food as not enough. Seeing food as not enough is not a good thing to be grappling with when you are hungry and less likely to be in control of decisions around the food you are eating.

All evidence is leading to the best solution, which is to use right-sized plates when eating. Right-sized plates do not look small and when you put the correct serving sizes on it, if they are Livliga plates, the food does look plentiful and like enough so you can feel satisfied at the end of a meal.

It is not just one thing that will make eating right sized portions appear plentiful and seem like enough. Right-sizing your plate is just one step in the right direction. It is also important to have the right shape of dishware, non-trigger colors on them, a design that frames the food so it can look like enough and even use visual illusion to enhance the positive visual cues our eyes will receive and our brain will interpret to help us right-size our food, not feel denied and deprived when we do, but instead feel satisfied at the end of a meal.

We are constantly being influenced by our food environment. During the past several decades that influence has worked against us, causing us to eat more, gain weight and grapple with a host of health problems because of it. Small plates alone may not be the answer but right-sizing our food environment, using dishware that supports us in serving up standard portion sizes and creating an attractive place to eat is key to long term success. Paying attention to what we eat, how we eat and where we eat is how we will take back control of our food, our health and the way we really want to live.
