7 Tips For a Happy, Healthier Halloween

Halloween Survival Guide

You already know what Halloween is all about: costumes, pumpkins, candy and often unhealthy snacks. This year, be prepared so you and your family don’t hit a giant sugar crash on November 1.

1. Procrastination Is Good On Halloween
Buy candy for the trick-or-treaters last minute so it’s not sitting in your pantry for weeks tempting you and your kids to indulge early  ORhalloween

2. Pass Out Healthy, Non-Candy Options
The parents will appreciate it and you will have less temptation! Some great ideas: snack packs of all-fruit strips, natural gummies or pretzels with no added sugar. Pencils, crayons, stickers, glow sticks, and false teeth are unique, fun options as well!

3. What To Do At The Halloween Party
Bring a veggie tray, a fruit platter, bean dip, or guacamole with sweet potato and quinoa chips. Want to get creative? Serve it in an orange bell pepper to give it Halloween spirit. While at the party, avoid the mixed drinks at the bar and steer away from the processed foods, high-carb foods, and unhealthy fats.

4. Don’t Trick-or-Treat Hungry
Trick-or-trick after a healthy, home-cooked meal so you and your kids don’t fill up on candy or eat candy along the way.

5. Fit In A Full Workout
Plan to workout first thing in the morning so you still get your usual workout routine in. It’s recommended to get your kids moving before trick-or-treating, too. If you’re planning the  Halloween Party, plan activities that involve physical activity for the kids and for the adults.

6. Donate The Extra Candy
Allow your children to keep a few treats, then bring the rest (especially the ones you know they don’t like) to the office for your co-workers to enjoy.

7. Stick With Your Healthy Routine
Even if you cheat slightly on October 31, get right back on track. Do not have the mindset that because you  cheated once, you have to quit everything you have done thus far. You still have this!

BodySite Partners with InBody to Make Biometric Data More Accessible to Providers and Patients

West Palm Beach, FL (Health and Wellness Newswire) – March 1, 2017

BodySite.com® , a best in class Digital Health Guidance System™, has announced a strategic partnership and integration with InBody USA, a world leader in body composition technology.

The alliance makes data from InBody Analyzers and the cutting edge InBody BAND™ available to health and wellness providers and their patients inside of the BodySite platform to help providers deliver better care and outcomes to guide patients to optimal wellness.

“By making advanced body composition data accessible with the InBody, we achieve our mission to provide physicians, dietitians, and fitness professionals with the tools to track progress and enhance patient care, ultimately empowering our clients to achieve their health goals. Our new partnership with the BodySite platform perfectly aligns with this mission,” said Meggan Brunette, Regional Manager.

The InBody BAND records essential health and fitness tracking metrics such as daily activity and sleep as you would expect from a fitness tracker. But what’s not expected is that the InBody BAND is a wearable fitness device that for the first time can measure body composition on the wrist.  Being able to track body fat percentage and muscle mass both on the scale and on the wrist means a patient’s progress toward not only optimal weight but also optimal body composition are both readily measurable and available instantly to the patient’s provider.

Integrating InBody BAND and InBody Analyzer data into BodySite’s robust patient content management and guidance platform enables providers to give more comprehensive health guidance based on more complete patient data. Using biometric measurements, providers get a better look at the metrics that matter and allows providers to make more informed recommendations.  According to BodySite founder John Cummings, “BodySite’s detailed wellness plan delivery system gives providers a way to do something meaningful with patient biometric data. Instead of just telling patients to “do better” with lifestyle choices, a provider can use BodySite to give the patient a complete roadmap to wellness that includes detailed and customized daily guidance. InBody data makes that experience more effective than ever.”

Patients can add their InBody data to BodySite for viewing by the provider by simply adding their InBody account to the new BodySite “My Connected Apps” page. When they do, information from InBody is synched instantly to the patient’s account and their provider’s account on BodySite, where a combined view of data from BodySite and other devices and apps, gives providers a broader look at the overall patient.

“There are literally hundreds of apps and devices to track steps and sleep but few devices provide meaningful details about what’s really happening with body composition” said BodySite’s  founder John Cummings .
