Food item of the week-a perfect match for a meal idea

Here is a perfect combination from once again our good old friend "Trader Joes"

Trader Joes brand Valencia Peanut Butter with Roasted Flaxseeds-crunchy and salty, it contains 320 mg ALA Omega 3 Fatty Acids per serving (approx 2 tsps) and the ingredients are merely peanuts, roasted golden flaxseeds and salt

plus.......

Trader Joe's Organic Superfruit Spread (a blend of morello cherrys, red grapes, blueberries and pomegranates) which is mostly from juices but only 8 grams of sugar per tsp and contains 60% DV of Vit C per serving

This combination is an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and pro-nutrient dense match and might I add, on some whole grain full of seeds bread, it is a yummy sandwich!!!!!!!! you can enjoy as a meal or snack!

PCOS Challenge review by Monika Woolsey


A must-listen if you have an eating disorder with your PCOS
Hello everyone,I missed the live version of this interview but stayed up until midnight listening to it. I was going to just catch the first few minutes but Ellen and Sasha did such a wonderful job of talking about body image, eating disorders, and PCOS, I was hooked!It's such a great, thorough, and compassionate look at a part of PCOS that is not easy to discuss. A lot of physicians who treat PCOS are more skilled at managing your lab values than your emotions...and it can be frustrating to feel that such an important part of your disorder is not being acknowledged.I do not intend to criticize physicians with my comment. They are often under pressure to see their patients in a tightly scheduled day, and if they're good at managing your insulin level, they need to be respected for what they're best at.One of the things PCOS Challenge AND inCYST are trying to do, is provide support that sometimes simply is not available in a medical office visit. A major goal at inCYST, as well, is to network with physicians and help them understand the importance of recognizing this very important aspect of PCOS, and knowing where to refer their patients if they can't or don't want to be the caregiver offering emotional support.If you've been feeling like that support is what you need, then a good start might be to listen to this broadcast. I guarantee, at the very least, you will learn that you're not alone. www.pcoschallenge.comThanks, Sasha and Ellen, for taking the time to talk so compassionately about such a challenging topic!

Food Item of the Week

While shopping at Trader Joes the other day, I stumbled upon an amazing product!Trader Joes Five Seed Almond BarsThey are made with flax, poppy, sunflower, sesame and pumpkin seeds and combined with almonds, cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar and honey to create these soft, chewy and delicious cookie barsThey taste amazing, but what is so wonderful is that each 110 calorie bar has 53mg EPA and DHA. The omega 3 sources seem to be from the flax as well as Omega-3 refined menhaden fish oil (with tocoperols)If you live by a Trader Joes you just have to try it!

Important Lab Tests for PCOS

Many women who have PCOS have not had the correct blood work done or don't know what blood tests to ask to have done.
I would like to post some important labs used to diagnose and monitor PCOS

1. Total testosterone (elevated levels are > 50ng/dl
2. Free testosterone
3. Luteinizing Hormone (LH) (plays a role in ovulation and egg development)
4. Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) (responsible for egg release from the ovaries)
5. LH/FSH ratio (results should be under 2)
6. DHEA-sulfate (this test tells how much androgens or "male hormones" your body is producing) DHEA sulfate converts into testosterone.
7. Prolactin
8. Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) this test will help to rule out hypo or hyperthyroidism (slow vs fast metabolism issues)
9. Liver Function tests (LFT's). Important since medications pass through the liver, to check for possible damages. Checking every 3-6 months is recommended.
10. Fasting Lipid Profile: Total Cholesterol (< 200 mg/dl is ideal)
High Density Lipoproteins (HDL) (>45 mg/dl is ideal)
Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) (<130 mg/dl is ideal)
Triglycerides (fat in blood) (<150 mg/dl is ideal)
11. Fasting Insulin (results should be <10) difficult to do, it needs to be frozen when brought to the lab and tested before it reaches a certain temperature, expensive but would be very beneficial in determining and monitoring insulin resistance.
12. Fasting blood chemistry panel (includes glucose, electolytes and sometimes renal labs)
13. Fasting glucose to insulin ratio (used to diagnose and monitor insulin resistance, ratio under 4.5 usually indicated insulin resistance)

The American Heart Association Needs to Check Its Omega-3 Math
I have heard the following recommendations made by the American Heart Association repeatedly for years now. And I hear them parroted everywhere by well-intended medical experts who, it seems, did not stop to check the math on which the recommendations are based:Population Recommendation Patients without documented coronary heart disease (CHD) Eat a variety of (preferably fatty) fish at least twice a week. Include oils and foods rich in alpha-linolenic acid (flaxseed, canola and soybean oils; flaxseed and walnuts).Patients with documented CHD Consume about 1 g of EPA+DHA per day, preferably from fatty fish. EPA+DHA in capsule form could be considered in consultation with the physician. Patients who need to lower triglycerides 2 to 4 grams of EPA+DHA per day provided as capsules under a physician's care. Patients taking more than 3 grams of omega-3 fatty acids from capsules should do so only under a physician's care. High intakes could cause excessive bleeding in some people.Evidence from prospective secondary prevention studies suggests that taking EPA+DHA ranging from 0.5 to 1.8 grams per day (either as fatty fish or supplements) significantly reduces deaths from heart disease and all causes. For alpha-linolenic acid, a total intake of 1.5–3 grams per day seems beneficial.I couldn't sit back anymore. Ellen Reiss Goldfarb, RD, a member of this blog's inCYST Network for Women With PCOS collaborated with me on hopefully setting the record straight. We hope it helps, especially to get a mathematically-correct set of recommendations out to the public so they can go grocery shopping with a better sense of empowerment.Regarding the omega-3 recommendations recently discussed, you all may want to consider that there are several contradictions within that make it very difficult (maybe even impossible) for the average American to follow them. As dietitians, it is important that we understand this math so that we help, not confuse or hurt, people who look to us for advice.First of all, we are telling people that they are not to eat more than 3 grams of omega-3's per day unless they are under a physician's care. However, if you try to get 1.8 mg of combined EPA + DHA combined, in the form of food first, 3 ounces of Alaskan salmon, which contains 384 mg of EPA plus DHA, would have to be eaten in a DAILY QUANTITY OF 14 ounces in order to get there. Are you really saying that if you're eating enough fish to get the amount of omega-3's we recommend, that the MD has to manage it??? You are unnecessarily putting yourself out of business if you are!!!Secondly, given those numbers for salmon, the densest seafood source of omega-3's, there is no way eating fish just a few times a week is going to get you to the level of omega-3 intake these recommendations are making. It is so frustrating watching colleagues parrot these recommendations and wondering if we're the only ones who've actually sat down and done this math..We also went to three popular fish oil brands and calculated out how many pills you would need to get the upper level of DHA + EPA recommended. Two of those, Nordic Naturals and Carlson's, if taken at the level needed to get there, would also place your client at levels you say a physician needs to manage.Realistically and honestly, how many of you are really doing that? With regards to bleeding, in all of our collective years actively recommending fish oil, only one client encountered a bleeding problem. The people at greatest risk for that are people who are on medications such as coumadin...and if you work closely with a physician who "gets it"--the dose of that medication can be dropped as EPA levels rise and help normalize blood clotting function. Always start low, titrate up, look closely for symptoms in people not on contraindicated medicatoins and let the MD check blood levels in people who are...and work very hard to minimize omega-6 intake. You'll get a lot more bang out of your omega-3 buck if you focus on the omega 6 to omega 3 ratio than if you only think about one.If you don't know how to use omega-3's to promote health, you may actually CREATE health risks for your clients, which I don't think any of you want to do.Here are the numbers from our calculations for your reference.EPA + DHA, total mg3 ounces salmon 384 mgNordic Naturals 550 mgCarlson's 500 mgBarlean's 600 mgTotal omega-3 content3 ounces salmon 3250 mgNordic Naturals 690 mgCarlson's 600 mgBarlean's 780 mgAmount needed to meet n-3's needed to meet upper DHA + EPA recommendation/total omega-3 content of that amount 3 ounces salmon 14 oz DAILY/15.2 total gms n-3Nordic Naturals 3.27 capsules/3.6 gm total n-3Carlson's 3.6 capsules/6.0 gm total n-3Barlean's 3.0 capsules/2.3 gm total n-3Monika M.

My wonderful story... to make a long story short

So, I got married at a later age than most, 38 and knew that I wanted to have a family and so did my husband. We succesfully got pregnant on our own a year and a half after we got married however, sadly this ended in a miscarriage in the 10th week, when I went to the doctor there was no heartbeat. I had no idea. It was what they call a missed AB and so I had to get a DNC procedure. They asked if I wanted to have the tissue examined by a lab to see what had gone wrong, I told them yes. The determined that the cause of the miscarriage was due to a chromosome issue and they said most likely had to do with my age.
My husband and I were devastated! were we too late, he was 44 and I almost 40 and we had no children yet! what were our options?
We then spent and enormous amount of money doing IVF, we did one round in which we made 3 healthy embroyos and inserted them but ...alas... nothing!
what were we to do?
I then started to think about adoption, but in the meantime, in the back of my mind I thought to myself, there must be something else I can do
Being a Dietitian, I started to research more about hormones, fertility and nutrition
I began to find an number of correlations between certain dietary patterns, sleep and exercise and fertility
I began to make changed in all of these areas and encouraged myhusband to do the same
We then took a trip to Hawaii and relaxed to get our minds off things
Right before I was to begin another round of fertility injections, we found out that I was pregnant(on my own) and we immediately stopped the injections
Now I am a nervous wreck again thinking something bad was going to happen and the first trimester was hell just waiting it out, but fortunately everything went fine, we had a CVS done and they said we were going to have a healthy baby girl!
I have birth to Arianna Belle on Sept 19th 2006, 4 months later, I was naturally pregnant again with my second healthy daugher Lauren Ivy who was born on October 10th 2007
These pregancies were both concieved naturally and both children are very healthy and doing great!
I really believe that if you make lifestyle changes, it can really effect your body and outcome
I now have expanded my private practice to support and help women who struggle with infertility and PCOS in addition to my specialty of treating Eating Disorders
My goal is to get as many women pregnant as I can with good nutrition and healthy lifetstyle practices

I would love to hear from you:)
