Healthy Hollywood: Fab Food Friday – Keri Glassman's New You Rx!

Healthy Hollywood’s good friend, nutritionist Keri Glassman, is hot off the press with her new book, “The New You (and Improved!) Diet.”

Unlike, other weight loss books, Keri wants folks to know losing weight isn’t just about calories and portion control. While what you eat is super important and her book is full of tips and recipes, there are also lifestyle changes (i.e. more sleep, less stress, and even sex) that can play into how you feel from head-to-toe.

Keri contributed her thoughts to Healthy Hollywood:

“The New You and Improved Diet is about eating – not, NOT eating – the first rule is Eat More, Not Less. BUT, just 1 Of the 8 rules is about eating. The other rules relate to ALL the other areas of our lives that affect our health, wellness and of course weight! If we don’t pay as close attention to these we won’t be successful with our diet. My clients are always surprised when I ask about stress levels, sleep habits, how organized their closet is or when the last time was that they had massage.

But the fact is you must pay attention to all these areas of your life for ultimate weight loss success, health and energy! Sounds like a lot of work? I promise it is not. All these rules for each of the different lifestyle factors work together, supporting one another and “feeding” off of each other. When we DO pay attention to each of them your healthy diet will almost magically happen and you will be thinner, happier, feel better and have more energy!”

Rule number 1 Eat More, Not Less is all about eating MORE. More REAL food. When you eat real food and learn to listen to your body (don’t worry I guide you through that too) you won’t need to obsess about calories.

3/4 cup low-fat or almond milk

2 tsp. Almond butter

Quinoa Pasta Primavera


2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 zucchini, cut into 1/8 inch-thick rounds and halved

1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper

1/4 cup frozen corn or sweet peas, thawed

1/2 tsp. minced garlic

1/2 cup hot cooked quinoa-blend pasta

3 tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1 tbsp. chopped fresh basil

Heat 1 tsp. of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the zucchini and pepper and season with salt and pepper.

Cook for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the vegetables are softened, and the zucchini is slightly golden.

Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in the corn and garlic and cook for 2 more minutes. Transfer vegetables mixture to a bowl, add the pasta, and toss with cheese, basil and the remaining 1 tsp. of olive oil.

    Why Is A Healthy Lifestyle Important In School? I need some ideas about Why a healthy lifestyle is important in school. I have to have an answer in less than 1000 words. Applying for college scholarship. Thanks in advance!

    What Are Some Healthy Lifestyle Changes To Make? So I’ve started drinking more water. I drink Green, White, and Chai tea. I also bought the stainless steel water bottle, and I bike for about 20-30 minutes a day. I consider these healthy lifestyle changes. I was wondering if you could provide more suggestions along these lines.

      There are 5 elements in a healthy lifestyle.

      1. food
      2. exercise
      3. sleep
      4. happiness
      5. extra healthy things

      1. Food, we don’t really know that much about nutrition, we do know a blanced diet, with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables is good for you. Meat is pretty good, if it is lean and not eaten too often….ideally I might eat meat once or twice a week. A good healthy diet can include some indulgences.
      2. Exercise, you should do some. Though I don’t recommend routine exercise, cycle 2 or 3 times a week, join a social sports club, eg, tennis, go hiking on weekends, swimming is one of the best exercises for the whole body. If you vary your exercise, then you will enjoy it more and do more.
      3. Sleep. A lot of evidence says if you don’t get enough sleep you will have problems, eat more, metabolise your food differently and die young.
      4. Be happy, enjoy your life. Drink dance, eat chocolate, but not all day, everyday.
      5. Then there are all the little extras. eg, green tea (there is no such things as Chai tea….chai means tea, it is an indian word derived from the chinese word Cha, meaning tea), red wine, brocollie and beetroot, lots of things than can boost your body, ginger, garlice and hundreds of other things that you can add to your diet to make things a little better.

      Don’t obsess, don’t live by a book or a routine, just be healthy.

    How Will You Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle In The Future? Imagine yourself after college. You’re married with a few kids. You’re gaining a few pounds every now and then. How will you get yourself back on track into a healthy lifestyle?

      Minus the after college part, but I have 2 kids and am expecting the third one in a few weeks. We maintain healthy lifestyles by eating nutritious foods, lots of whole grains, fruits, veggies, and milk. We also get a lot of exercise in. Although my kids are still toddlers and I’m big as a house, everyday as a family my husband and I walk with the kids up and down the road, then when we get home my husband stays outside with the kids and plays with them while I get supper fixed. We don’t turn the TV on until after baths, forcing us to get up off the couch. Hopefully that will encourage our kids to maintain healthy lifestyles after they’re all grown up.

    What Can Anyone Do To Promote A Healthy Lifestyle? What can institutions such as schools do and what can individuals do?
    What can the government put in place?
    What is the reason for the fact not a lot of people care about having a healthy lifestyle anymore?

      • HealthNut
      • January 11, 2013

      Schools can replace all or most of the canteen food with healthy options so they could replace chicken burger with tuna salad for example. Individuals can aim to eat 5 portions of fruit and veg a day and exercise for at least 30 minutes a day. The government can put a higher price up on junk food, therefore tempting more people to buy healthy food as it would become cheaper than it is now.

      The reason why people don’t care about a healthy lifestyle, is that junk food like burger and chips is quick and a convenience, as healthy meals takes time to prepare. Same with exercise maybe being time consuming and they have a busy schedule to be able to fit it all in.

      Healthy lifestyle…involves eating right, exercing, and relationships you have with others. Also if you live in a clean environment…messy=germs=sickness…and to maintain a healthy lifestyle you need to frequenlty eat right, do some sort of physical activity, be nice to others (stress is bad for health), and keep a clean home

    Is Dairy An Important Part Of A Healthy Lifestyle? I consume 3 servings of dairy in the first half of my day, and none later on. Is dairy important to maintain a healthy lifestyle?

      • HealthNut
      • January 11, 2013

      Calcium, not dairy specifically, is what’s important to a healthy lifestyle. Many other things have calcium like broccoli, nuts, fish, water, etc. The amounts are smaller though so you’d have to consume a lot more of them to get the calcium that you need, which is why people find it easier to get it through dairy. Our bodies don’t actually absorb all the calcium from dairy products very well because of the fat in them; that is why “western” societies actually have the highest rates of osteoperosis, where countries that don’t consume dairy products at all but get calcium from other sources, actually have stronger bones and very low rates of this disease.
