HEALTH TIPS

learn more about LVSL

Don’t eat after a certain point at night or else you’ll gain weight.

You’ve probably heard of the importance of “not eating after 8 PM” or something similar when you’re trying to be healthy. Timing does play into how your eating habits affect weight loss, because unhealthy foods are the worst when you eat them at inactive times, but there’s not much of a difference between eating a cookie at 3 p.m. at your desk and before you go to bed

Vitamins and supplements will help you be healthier.

You do need vitamins to be healthy, yes, but the thing is, if you eat a balanced diet, you will probably get all the vitamins that you need. In fact, unless you have a specific need (like if you’re a vegan supplementing your plant-based diet with B12), vitamins could actually be hurting your health.

Cut fat from your diet, because it will make you fat.

One of the simplest ways to create a calorie deficit is to trim off some of the fat from your diet because, gram for gram, fat contains the most calories. If you can shave off even 25 grams of fat each day, that’s the equivalent of 225 calories, which would have you seeing almost half a pound of pure body fat loss each week.

Choose a grilled chicken burger instead of a hamburger

When the summer months hit and you’re in the mood for a grilled sandwich, make it a grilled chicken burger to save on fat instantly. On average, frozen burger patties contain 22 grams of fat, while if you opt for a chicken breast you’ll only take in a mere 3 grams of fat.

Choose a baked potato instead of French fries

Exchanging a baked potato for your usual fries on the side of that burger will really help cut fat. The typical small (2.5 oz) serving of French fries contains at least 10 grams of fat, and most don’t stop there. It’s not uncommon to eat 5 or more ounces in a sitting, so you’ll want to double those numbers.

A baked potato topped with salsa or some fat-free sour cream and fresh chives is virtually fat-free and will provide a great source of carbohydrates to help provide fuel for your muscles to get you through your workouts.

Choose an egg white omelet instead of a regular egg omelet

A home-cooked omelet is a great way to start your Saturday morning off right, but make sure you prepare it without the yolk. By simply doubling the egg whites used and tossing the yolks, you’ll save 15 grams of fat per 3-whole egg omelet.

Be sure to add plenty of chopped vegetables as well to boost the nutritional value.

    My 91 year old father-in-law was in independent living and the day before Thanksgiving fell and was hospitalized. He was dumped into a horrible skilled nursing/rehab facility where he rapidly deteriorated and then with no warning we were given a few days to then find a new place for him to live. After hours of frustrating phone calls I luckily found a link for LVSL which recently opened. I called up and spoke with Greg who was informative and friendly. We went down to visit and were instantly impressed by the welcoming atmosphere, the friendly, professional staff and incredibly clean facility. Stephen and Greg answered all our questions and introduced us to the staff. We moved my father-in-law in the next day and we could not be more pleased. He has thrived at LVSL. The nursing staff has communicated with us and gone out of their way to make him feel welcome and cared for. The cooks have worked with us to ensure that he has food he enjoys eating. The staff even went so far as to rewire his room so we could accommodate his large TV which he needs due to macular degeneration. They treat my father-in-law with great dignity and are pushing him hard to regain mobility. We are so grateful for the caring staff and welcoming home they have provided. As Livermore residents we feel so lucky to have LVSL here in town. This is an amazing facility with a caring, well-trained staff.

    I was visiting a number of assisted living facilities in the area and was really impressed by the knowledge and promptness of their Retirement Councillor Greg Green. He was polite and very prompt in answering all my questions. Their model of care is much different then most places that they have nurses on staff in addition to normal care givers.

    In a very short timeframe, we were faced with finding care for our mother and moving her to California. We had visited other facilities in Livermore and had a decision in mind, but while driving down East Avenue one Sunday afternoon, we decided to stop at LVSL and take a look. We were greeted warmly by Stevie, one of the LVNs on staff. She graciously walked us through the facility and answered our many questions. LVSL is a small, intimate facility and the LVN/caregiver-to-resident ratio is great. The LVNs are on staff 24/7, which is very reassuring. The caregivers are kind, patient, and respectful of the residents' privacy and personal needs. The chefs are very pleasant and provide a good balanced diet. LVSL occasionally hosts entertainment for the residents and their families, e.g., comedians from SF and musicians from local schools. The facility is very clean, laundry services are good, and the residents have a beautiful garden in which to enjoy the fresh air. Mom's had some ups and downs during this initial transition period, and we are all working together to ensure she's safe and comfortable. We consider ourselves and Livermore lucky to have this new facility available to those we love.
