Dining Out Without Caving In: 5 Restaurant Survival Tips

Dining Out Without Caving In: 5 Restaurant Survival Tips from the Jeunesse Blog.


So your friends or family invite you out to eat, but you’re trying to stick witblog_dining_out_without_caving_in__5_restaurant_survival_tips_small_en-USh your eating plan. This is usually when anxiety kicks in and starts to take over. Will you dive in now and get back on plan tomorrow? Does the restaurant even have healthy items on the menu?

While skipping the bread basket is one well-known trick for keeping the calorie-count down, there are other ideas to consider.

Here are tips from Health and Fitness Expert and ZEN Brand Ambassador Mark Macdonald, who travels frequently and often has no choice but to eat out. He has become a connoisseur of distinguishing the good from the bad on any menu.

1. Decide if you are on or off plan
Before you go to the restaurant, decide if you are going to follow your plan or dive in and make this your cheat meal for the week. If you decide to dive in, make it a great experience, and then just get back on plan with the next meal.

2. Don’t go hungry
If you are eating on plan, don’t go to the restaurant hungry. When you arrive hungry, you are more susceptible to choosing something high in carbs, sugar and fat. Arrive at the restaurant ready to eat, but not starving. Drink a ZEN Fuze™ shake a short time before zen fit by jeunesseyou leave for the restaurant, so you don’t feel famished by the time you receive your food.

3. Choose your protein first
Choosing your protein first is really helpful to ensure you eat a balanced meal and eat the right portion size. For instance, steak already contains fat. If you choose steak, then you can order steamed vegetables with quinoa or a plain baked potato to go with it. If you choose a lean protein, like chicken, then you can get a salad with a drizzle of dressing, which brings us to point No. 4.

4. Ask for dressing, sauces and oils on the side
You’re the boss at the restaurant, so be decisive about what you want and don’t want on your food. You can even ask that your vegetables be cooked without oil or butter, and keep all salad dressings on the side.

5. Alcohol is okay, but eliminate the starches
If you want to have some wine or a beer with your meal, just make sure you don’t order any starches. This means no rice, potatoes, bread or noodles. You would simply have your protein with vegetables.

Relax and enjoy your night out, guilt free!

instanly ageless sally magnussonAntioxidants are important for skincare but you may not know how to make sure that your skincare has what you need.

First, it’s important know WHY you need them, but secondly you should know how you can be sure that you get them for your skin’s better overall health.

What would you say if I told you that it was easier to take care of your skin than you think?

Overexposure to the sun is only one way in which the skin can get damaged.
Regardless of what cosmetics you use or what skincare you use now, you should know that a product with more antioxidant power is what you need to protect your skin.
What can improve the look and feel of your skin?

Today, I’m going to share with you some of the most vital sources of antioxidants and how you can protect your skin and improve your skin’s condition with the right sources of nature.

Vital Antioxidants Are Important for Skincare
There are many things that you can do to keep your skin looking healthier, but applying anything to your skin that contains antioxidants is the best thing you can do.  Finiti_AM_PM-200x200
Antioxidants are important for skincare because they help prevent aging and you can get them into your diet and through skincare products as well.
Here are some tremendous sources of antioxidants for you.
1. Vitamins C and E.
2. Selenium.
3. Co Q 10.
4. Alpha-lipoic acid.
5. Retinoic acid.
While some of these are easy to incorporate into your diet, be mindful of the fact that getting them onto your skin is important too

This is why I chose products from Jeunesse Global. I was tired of looking at index 2my skin that had discoloration, and the tone was uneven. As I aged, I began to realize that wrinkles weren’t the style I was going for!
As a woman, I can assure you that the skincare products I use are by far the best I’ve EVER used. I learned by reviewing Jeunesse products that the health of my skin was what actually improved the look of my skin.
There is a huge difference! You can easily take up to 1,000 to 3,000 milligrams of vitamin C each day, but you should also be using products that contain vitamin C. Once you boost your intake of vitamins and minerals that are good for the immune system, you’ll see the difference.
Vitamin C and E are both great for your skin and contain the level of antioxidants you need. Would you like to try products that can feed your skin from the inside out?
Find out now what antioxidants are important for skincare!

Change | What Causes it?

 Change | What Causes It?

  • We never really know what instigates change in the complex system that our body is. We know when something is not working properly, because then certain symptoms appear. Thus it was finally discovered that I had hypothyroidism, which means I had too little thyroid hormone in my body. The most common cause of thyroid gland failure is called autoimmune thyroiditis (also called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis), a form of thyroid inflammation cause by the patient’s own immune system. As the disease progresses, the TSH increases since the pituitary is trying to induce the thyroid to make more hormone, the T4 falls since the thyroid can’t make it, and the patient becomes hypothyroid.


    change |finiti by jeunesses

    For the longest time no doctor seemed to know I had hypothyroidism, although they were guessing that was the cause of my symptoms, which were fatigue, weight gain, dry and coarse hair, hair loss, extreme cold intolerance, and decreased libido, to name a few. The most challenging symptom was being cold to the bone, day in, day out, since I live in Iceland, although the country is not as cold as the name indicates.

    Being a great fan of functional medicine, I wanted to do everything possible to find natural ways in which to get my thyroid to work properly again. Finally, early this year, I gave in to my doctor’s pressure and started taking medication (Armour) to see whether that would make me feel better, as my TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) was way too high. The side effects from the Armour were however so bad, that I had to stop using it within a month, as I was not prepared to start taking various other medications to counterbalance the one that was intended to support my thyroid. This was in mid April, and while recovering from the side effects and getting my blood pressure, which had shot up to extreme heights while on the thyroid medication, back into balance, I meditated, did yoga and wondered what my next steps would be.

    In the beginning of May I was invited to a Jeunesse Opportunity meeting. While listening to the presenter talk, I realized that one of the supplements she was talking about was based on Nobel Prize winning science I had learned about while doing research for a book I wrote back in 2012. That made me really interested, so I signed up.

    In order to see how these new supplements would affect my health I put aside almost 30 supplement bottles I had been using to get all the nutrients I felt I needed. Yeah, they were many, and I’ve always jokingly said that if I would overdose on anything, it would be supplements. However, I was now down to three bottles, and was getting even more nutrients from them, than all the ones I had been using.

    I took AM™ in the morning, PM™ in the evening, and FINITI™ morning and evening. I started using them towards the end of May, and by mid June I also added the antioxidant RESERVE™.

    By the end of July, it was time for a blood test to check my TSH levels. Early in 2015 they had been at 5,7, which I initially thought was a good sign, until the doctor told me it should measure between 0,3-3,0 according to endocrinologists, although I have since discovered that laboratory researchers use 0,5-5,0 as a guideline. In either case it was too high. I was therefore very excited to see whether my levels had changed any – and they had. They were now down to 1,6, which was quite a drop.

    I don’t know – but the only substantial change I made in my life during this time was to change the supplements I was taking. Trusting the drop in TSH levels happened because of something in them, I’ve decided to stay with them a lot longer.

    With this article I’m not making any medical claims for the products, just sharing my thoughts and story. What may work for me, may not work for others. I will keep on tracking my TSH to see whether this is an ongoing change. In the meantime I’m enjoying being HOT again!

Should We Take Vitamin & Mineral Supplements?

Should you take Vitamin & Mineral Supplements?

Vitamin and minerals are nutrients for bodily function and prevention of disease.

There is an archaic argument of “I can get everything I need from food” Are you? we are NOT getting proper nutrition.
Vitamins are natural substances found in living things such as plants.

Vitamins must be obtained in the body from foods or supplements as they cannot usually be produced by the body.img-patched-aeon nr1
Minerals are found in plants. Plants get their minerals from the soil – soil gets minerals from water washing over rocks.

For vitamins to do their job, they require minerals. Minerals must also be obtained from food or supplements.
Antioxidants are specific vitamins or minerals that protect body cells from the damaging effects of Free Radicals.

Free radicals come from or are caused by smoking,sunlight, stress, exercise, etc,and are one of the primary causes

of premature aging, sickness and disease.
