She is a popular National Speaker and Consultant, educating advanced practice clinicians and consumers around the country and the world. Dr. Mimi is also a fitness and health advocate, and is passionate about helping women to lose weight and feel great.

Here are some of the few things Dr. Mimi thinks you need to know more about weight gain and why age matters:

  1. As we age our metabolism slows down (unless we exercise and lift weights). This is because we begin to lose muscle mass after age 40. If we continue to eat the same amount we will gradually gain weight. This also explains why, as we age, it is more challenging to lose weight. We lose weight more slowly and sometimes we are unable to lose weight.

Simple Ways to Improve Concentration
:

Do you often forget a person’s name minutes after meeting them? Are you easily distracted?
  • In the digital age we now live in, it can be difficult to stay focused.
  • According to a Microsoft study, people now have a shorter attention span than a goldfish! Whereas a goldfish can maintain its focus for nine seconds, humans begin to lose concentration after eight seconds.
  • Besides all the digital distractions, there may be other factors contributing to our lack of concentration: Poor nutrition, inadequate sleep, and dehydration may be just some of the reasons why your mental focus is less sharp.
  • To improve your mental clarity, begin by making positive improvements in your diet, be sure that you are getting enough sleep, and drink more water.

Beyond those obvious basic recommendations, here are 4 essential tips to help you regain your focus:

1 – Minimize Distractions. When you really need to concentrate, create a calm, quiet environment. Turn off the TV, mute cell phone notifications and ask that those around you do not disturb you. If necessary, go somewhere you know you will not be disturbed in a quiet space.

2 – Stop Multitasking. Although it may seem like multitasking is an awesome way to get a lot done, it often turns out that all those tasks are not being done well. Try honing on a single task at a time; the spotlight that you shine on each individual task can help you achieve better results.

3 – Live in the Present. It can be difficult to concentrate if you are re-living the past or worrying about the future. “Being present” is key to keeping your attention sharp.

4 – Exercise. Engaging in at least 30 minutes of physical activity has been shown to improve concentration and improve mental health. Whether it’s a workout at the gym or a jog around the block, any exercise can help your focus.

How to Prevent and Treat Influenza:

On top of the Coronavirus pandemic, the flu season is here too. Beginning in early fall to mid-spring, the number of diagnosed cases of the influenza virus begins to rise. In any given year 10-20 percent of the population will become infected with the flu. Characteristically the symptoms of the flu are very similar to the common cold; however, these two diseases are the result of different viruses. The flu often presents with fever, headache, body aches, fatigue, sneezing, and cough. The common cold, however, tends to have more sinus involvement with a stuffy or a runny nose and is much milder than the flu. The flu is more likely to result in progression to pneumonia or bronchitis which increases the mortality rate of this virus.  The elderly and the young are most at risk. The best defense against the flu is a healthy immune system.

Talking Points from Michael Evangel 
on Eating Healthy This Thanksgiving:

 
“When shopping for your Thanksgiving turkey, try organic, pasture raised and local.”  –Dr. Michael Evangel

Types of Turkeys

  • Organic standards help lower risk of contaminated feed and organic turkey usually is of higher nutritional quality. Organic by itself does not guarantee a natural lifestyle for the turkeys.
  • Go beyond organic by asking for pasture-raised. Don’t get sidetracked by the confusing labeling terms. You are likely to find phrases like “pasture-raised,” “pastured,” “free-range” and “cage-free” on turkey packaging. Labeling laws allow products to display these terms even if the turkeys spend little or no time outdoors in a pasture setting. Talk to your grocer or the turkey farmer and find out how the animals were actually raised.
