The Doctors: Healthy Food Swaps To Save Calories
Looking for more tips to help boost nutrition and maybe even lose some weight at the same time? Dr Jennifer Ashton, a board-certified OB/GYN, is also now board-certified in obesity medicine. Dr Ashton wanted to reveal a few healthy swaps that actually taste good. First, instead of white rice, use cauliflower rice! All you do is put raw cauliflower in a blender or food processor and run the motor until you’re left with what looks like rice. One cup of cauliflower rice is just 25 calories as opposed to 204 in white rice.
Instead of chicken nuggets, substitute a zucchini popper made with ground chicken or turkey, chopped zucchini and onion, and some spices. Just pan-fry or bake in the oven and you’ll consume just 204 calories from five poppers, instead of 270 for regular chicken nuggets. But you’re also benefiting in terms of fat, carbohydrates, and protein.
For a lot of people, a meal replacement has been shown to help people. If you want to use one, a meal delivery service may be the way to go. Dr Ashton recommended Veestro because they can bring shakes or meal replacements you need to save you time and calories. When it comes to alcohol, you can still enjoy a margarita, but use fresh citrus juice, a splash of agave, and a little cayenne, instead of those pre-made mixes.

The Doctors: Dangers Of Eyelash Extensions
Next, before you reach for a new way to enhance your eyelashes, The Doctors want you to be aware that not all products and services are created equally. Photos were revealed of women who had bad reactions to eyelash extensions. The red, bloodshot eyeballs and torn, clumped eyelashes were just some of the uncomfortable results. Dr Brian Bachler-Wachler explained that you should first know that your own eyelashes can break off if the extensions aren’t applied properly and you can have a skin reaction because of an allergy. The hard lashes could also potentially detach and scratch your cornea, leading to an infection or cause permanent loss of your own lashes because of the glue. You’re best off going to a reputable salon, but you should always see if the glue being used contains formaldehyde. If you have a bad reaction, see your eye doctor ASAP.

You can also try to slow down the feedings and stop and burp the baby throughout.
