Dietician healthy holiday recipes Savannah SouthCoast HealthSouthCoast Health experts explain here how to watch out for diet fads in the world of social media.

SouthCoast Health Dietetic Counselor Rebekah M. Laurance says: “It’s always a great idea to watch what you eat in the way of ensuring you stack your plate full with lean proteins, fruits, veggies, and whole grains. However, it’s not a great to limit what you eat and torture yourself when it comes to your diet. But that can be confusing to understand when celebrities or influences swear certain diets are the only way to get the body you’ve always dreamed of.”

SouthCoast Health: Tips to fight mindless eating during the holidays

Wednesday, December 16th, 2020

Dietician healthy holiday recipes Savannah SouthCoast Health

The holiday season equals celebration and delicious food. But staying healthy? Not so much.

But according to SouthCoast Health’s Registered Dietitian, that doesn’t mean all hope is lost.

“It is possible to eat with a healthy pattern the holiday season if you go into this time of year with a plan,” SouthCoast Health Registered Dietitian, Rebekah Laurance, RD, LD said. “It can be hard to stick to your goals this time of year. To combat this, go in prepared to deal with these indulgences. It is also important to recognize that having two or three days of less than ideal nutrition is not a good reason to give up on your goal! Get through the holidays, roll with it, and get back on your schedule.

Working hard to maintain healthy eating habits? Laurance offers tips to fight mindless eating and stay fit here.

(Savannah therapists) Binge Eating Disorder: Why Can’t I Stop Eating?

Monday, September 21st, 2020

Binge Eating disorder Low Country Therapists Savannah Counseling Counselors

Low Country Counseling in Savannah on Binge Eating Disorder

For those who struggle with binge eating, food can lead to anxiety and shame.

This eating pattern has many names: emotional eating, over-eating, compulsive eating, food addiction, etc. They all mean the same thing: that eating has become an adaptation to dealing with negative feelings and experiences. And then a terrible cycle ensues: eating, shame, and then fasting or dieting to “do better.” This cycle can feel lonely and endless. And hence the question, “Why Can’t I Stop Eating?”

The answer may be Binge Eating Disorder (BED). BED is the most common eating disorder, however it was only recently recognized officially.

Learn more about causes of BED, tips to reduce binge eating and 5 signs of binge eating disorder here.

(Savannah therapists) Low Country Counseling: 7 Ways to Eat Mindfully

Monday, July 27th, 2020

Savannah therapists counselors counseling Low Country Therapy

Low Country Counseling therapists on what is mindful eating

(Below is a guest post by Low Country Counseling in Savannah)

We have lost the connection of knowing when our bodies are hungry and when they have had enough to eat.

We have lost the insight of knowing what our bodies are needing because we can no longer “hear” what our bodies crave. We have moved to a state of Mind-Less Eating: a state of rushed, hurried eating of whatever food is convenient, regardless of whether or not we are even hungry. Mindless eating is not healthy for our bodies. It can lead to over-eating which may lead to physical discomfort and feelings of regret.

Mindful Eating allows us to slow down and re-connect with our bodies by using our senses each time we eat a snack or meal.

Learn more about what mindful eating is and seven ways to eat mindfully here.

SouthCoast Health: Tips to “Put Your Best Fork Forward” for National Nutrition Month

Tuesday, March 10th, 2020

SouthCoast Health March is National Nutrition Month. So the SouthCoast Health nutritionist team is offering advice to those trying to live a healthier lifestyle, bite by bite.

When asked about what two to three changes people should make in order to be healthier, SouthCoast Health’s nutritionist team immediately thought of how to approach eating your fruits and vegetables. Being more mindful of not only how many fruits and vegetables you eat in a day, but the way they’re prepared is important. Not only are most Americans not reaching their recommended daily intake, they’re also consuming vegetables that are prepared in unhealthy ways, such as being covered in sauces, excessive seasoning, or fried, which adds unwanted calories and saturated fat.

SouthCoast Health General Physician: Tips for a healthier life

Friday, January 31st, 2020

Your typical to-do list: Get to work, spend time with your family, be as productive as possible, cook a good dinner, clean up the house, de-stress, and, if you’re lucky, squeeze in time to work out.

“For so many people, and Americans especially, the last piece in that long list of daily to-dos often gets overlooked,” SouthCoast Health General Physician Dr. Leslie Sizemore stated. “But keeping everything in our life running the way we want involves being kind to our bodies and keeping ourselves as healthy as possible. As easy as it is to skip working out and eating healthy, it can have negative effects on us in the long run.”
