HEALTHY DIET TIPS

learn more about LVSL

Oatmeal:

Your morning snack attack is caused by a dip in blood sugar levels. Fiber-rich oatmeal stays in your stomach for hours, staving off a doughnut run.

Almonds and Other Nuts

Go nuts! They slim your tummy by keeping it full. A Purdue University study showed that people who ate nuts felt full longer than those who ate rice cakes. Stick to 24 almonds a day to satisfy your hunger pangs without overloading on calories.

Protein Powder

It’s not just for gym rats! Protein powder contains amino acids that burn fat and build muscle. Add two teaspoons to a smoothie for a fat-busting drink. Find it at health food stores.

Green Vegetables

If their vitamins and minerals don’t persuade you, maybe their waist-whittling powers will do the trick. Veggies like spinach and broccoli are loaded with fiber and very few calories. Have a salad before a meal and you’ll be satisfied with smaller portions later.

Avocados

In addition to containing lots of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, avocados are a terrific source of filling fiber (11 to 17 grams per avocado!), making them a great food for staving off hunger, says Bowden.

Berries

Berries stuff a lot of filling fiber into a tiny package: Just one cup of raspberries has six grams.

Eggs

Eggs contain vitamin B12, which your body needs to metabolize fat. In fact, researchers at Louisiana State University found that people who ate eggs for breakfast every day lost more weight than those who ate bagels.

Olive Oil

Everyone needs a little fat — it controls hunger. Go for monounsaturated fats like olive or canola oil. They will help keep your cholesterol under control and satisfy cravings.

    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.
