Before you have a Coke and a smile, consider this. That sugary-sweet beverage may increase your risk of a painful inflammatory condition called gout.

If you’re a Howard Stern fan, you’ll remember show hillbilly and drunk, Richard “Its My Favorite” Christy, got gout and he could barely put weight on his smelly foot.

And a new study has found drinking too many sugary drinks, like orange juice and soda, may raise your risk of gout.

I don’t like marketing. Mind you, I have a degree in it, so I understand the beast. But I still don’t like it. Advertising techniques are either deceptive cons or ridiculous mini-movies that have little to do with the product being sold.

411 Thanksgiving Tips – it’s about the numbers

Comments Off on 411 Thanksgiving Tips – it’s about the numbers

Re-issue of a past post by reader request!

To make the planning of the meal easy, here are a few numbers that will come in handy.

How big a bird to buy:
1.5 lbs/per person turkey (uncooked). You will have leftovers with this amount.

How long to cook:
Until the internal temperature is 165 degrees for a perfect bird. Range is 165-180. Measure this in the thigh with an instant read thermometer
Let rest for 25-30 minutes before carving. Bird will stay hot for 1 hour so don’t panic – let the juices set!

What temperature to set oven to for all the side dishes:

Amount of coffee to use per cup:
2 tablespoons per cup when making a pot with a auto-drip machine.

How much stuffing:
1.25 cup per person (this should also result in leftovers)

We found an actual turkey meal calculator online for you to use:

And remember the important part of the holiday is being with people you care about and having gratitude in your life. Try not to get stressed out over the perfect meal…and ask for help! Any guest that offers to bring a dish, say yes!! If you only have to make the main dishes, it will be much easier. Ask others to bring appetizer and desserts, and even the sides!

Even Preschoolers Want To Be Thin

Girls as young as three are already “emotionally invested” in being thin, according to a small study of 55 preschoolers.

I really didn’t expect kids this young to even notice what weight someone was. But then again, our culture has become obsessed with body image, so does this really surprise anyone?

The girls behavior indicated they did not even want to be friends with someone who was “fat”. Given the extent of our current obesity epidemic, that is particularly worrying. I mean, what kind of relationships will today’s children form in later years with an attitude like this at such a young age?

In an on-going battle to help our children eat healthily, here is a “cheat-sheet” on some healthy snack options to have at home, pack for a multi-hour trip, or throw in the lunch box for school.

  • Fruits (all of them – take advantage of seasonal options)
  • Fruit salads – why not combine several fruits?
  • Veggies – again the world is your oyster here. Add a healthy dip such as hummus or red pepper dip. Some examples; peppers (all colours), cherry tomatoes, broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, cucumbers, green beans, peas, baby carrots
