Thoughts from Dr. Steelman





The Holly Jolly But Not Always So Easy Holidays

The continual holiday food fest that seems to start about Halloween and generally ends with a New Year's Resolution to eat healthier and to lose all that weight that you gained during that time period is a treacherous one for dieters.

It is estimated that the average American gains anywhere from 1 to 5 pounds during this time period. That's more than 3 million pounds! And a whole lot of eating! So with that thought in mind, how can you be one of the folks that does not add to that statistic? Here are a few pointers to help you out:

1. Deck the Refrigerator with healthy food choices and cut out as many sweets as you can that you have on hand. Modify the recipes of your favorite holiday treats to help keep the calorie count down.

2. Rock Around the Christmas Tree or get any type of exercise to work in some extra calorie burners. Find ways to add activity into your routines, even your "mall aerobic shopping" is better than no exercise!

3. We Need a Little Water to keep the body in balance! We should be drinking lots of water anyway. Alternate those calorie-laden drinks with water to help check the calories and it will help you feel more full too.

4. Jing-A-Ling Your Calorie Bank - On the days you don't have a party or family dinner, etc. be extra careful...put some calories in your calorie bank that you can take out later when you need them for the special "splurge" days.

5. Let There Be Planning Ahead to make sure you are not overly hungry when you arrive at a food-laden event. Eating small meals and not skipping breakfast will help keep you from over-indulging because you arrived starving to death!

With just a little foresight and imaginative thinking, you too can enjoy "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!"   

And remember, you’re always worth it!!

This Month's Question for the Doctor:

Question: Do you have a product specifically designed for kids with ADHD? I want to eventually not have to give my child prescription medicine. These meds really affect his appetite and I’m worried about it.

Answer from Dr. Steelman: There has been some evidence that omega-3 fatty acids, such as in our Active omega, can help in ADD and ADHD. The doses required may be higher than the recommended dose for general use as a supplement. While we cannot provide specific recommendations, if you decided to try using Active Omega, it may be that a standard dose of Active Omega supplements would lower the dose of other meds required. Be sure to discuss the issue with his physician, especially if he/she is interested in nutritional matters.

Have a Question about Active 8?


Did you know that Active Omega* can help protect the brain from Parkinson's Disease according to a study just published by Université Laval researchers? Active Omega is of the highest quality and each batch is tested for purity to insure it does not contain significant amounts of toxins such as mercury, PCB's, etc. Many cheaper brands do not have this kind of quality control. Learn more about the benefits of Active Omega here: 

Note: Active Omega or any supplement should be used under the guidance of your personal physician.
