6 Simple Ways You Can Eat to Help Our Planet Thrive
1. Add more plant-based protein into your diet. Industrial farmed meat has a higher impact on the environment than any other food group. For a healthier and more environmentally friendly protein, try beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds instead. Lentil soup is an excellent source of protein and fiber and is simple to make. I also top my homemade salads with Setton Farm Pistachios and Pistachio Chewy Bites, which are filled with heart healthy fats and protein to keep your energy levels up throughout the day. Another thing I like to do is add tahini to my roasted vegetables to turn a side dish into a meal.
In a weight-obsessed world, it’s no wonder many go to extreme measures to lose those few extra pounds, often times risking their own health in the process. As any doctor will tell you, being overweight has it’s own significant health risks. How then do we find a balance, and with so many supplements out there to help in weight loss, how in the world do we know what to safely and properly take?
For many, limiting calories, eating smaller meals more often, making better food choices, and working out regularly is enough to help shed that weight, although oftentimes, not fast as this can be a very slow process, but generally a more healthy one with few health and safety risks. Still, only losing about 2 pounds a week (on a good week) is about as good as you will do, at least for most of us (especially women, as men are able to lose weight quicker).
Sometimes though, some of us find ourselves in situations where no matter how well we eat and how regularly we work out, those pounds are just not coming off. In which case, seeing your doctor will most likely benefit you best, as trouble losing weight can often be associated with health issues such as an underactive thyroid, and your doctor can help you rule this out or any other issues that may be keeping the weight stuck to you. Your Doctor can also help aid you in finding supplements that can be beneficial to your weight loss
Over the years we’ve seen many drugs and supplements come on the market that are able to do just that, but oftentimes may not be found safe for most users. One such drug is Phentermine. Phentermine is a psychostimulant drug of the substituted amphetamine chemical class. Similar to amphetamine, it helps raise energy and suppresses the appetite, but should only be taken short-term, and with the recommendation and watchful eye of your doctor, as Phentermine can produce cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and CNS side effects, as well as rare cases of pulmonary hypertension and cardiac valvular disease.
