SlimPlate System of Portion Control Announces Tips to Manage Diabetes in Summer Heat

Rock Hill, SC (PRWEB) June 27, 2014

The team behind the proven SlimPlate System of weight loss have today revealed their tips and tricks for dealing with diabetes during the summer months in a new series of ask the experts and it all comes down to portion control.

SlimPlate System is a unique method of portion control that can help to trigger weight loss and keep it off ideal for those who suffer from diabetes and need to maintain a controlled diet in order to keep their blood sugar levels steady. Now the experts behind the portion control plates have offered their tips for diabetes sufferers during the summer season, when it can be only too tempting to reach for a sugary snack or gorge on fruit in the heat.

Dr. Myo Nwe, the physician who invented the SlimPlate System says, Diabetes is a tricky condition to manage, but controlling portions using methods like ours can be a very effective way of maintaining blood sugar levels. People rarely feel like eating heavy stews or carb-laden dishes when the temperature rises, and our collection of dinnerware can help those with diabetes control their portions sensibly throughout the summer season.

The first tip from the team at SlimPlate System is for diabetes sufferers to carry a method of portion control with them at all times. Whether its a small cup to measure out fruit portions or a personal plate that they can measure their food intake on, its important that whether theyre attending a barbecue or a summer garden party, they are still in control of their food.

Secondly, for those who dont have access to fresh fruit and just want to reach for a sugar snack, ensure that they are still eating to the recommended portions. Using the SlimPlate System means that no foods are ruled out, but for diabetes sufferers its important to strictly monitor the intake when it comes to sweet snacks and treats.

Dr. Myo Nwe strongly advocates remaining hydrated at all times. Dehydration, or the loss of body fluids, can occur when blood glucose is not under control for diabetes sufferers. Alcohol intake should be limited as much as possible, and caffeine-free fluids should be ingested often to remain hydrated and keep glucose levels consistent. For those who are really craving a fizzy, sugary soda, its vital to stick to recommended portions using measuring tools like those provided by SlimPlate System.

The unique weight loss and portion control method, SlimPlate System, also advocates eating often. The plan includes three meals and two snacks every day, which is very

beneficial for those who are managing diabetes. The experts at SlimPlate System also encourage diabetes sufferers to check their blood glucose levels multiple times a day to be sure that their levels are within the acceptable boundaries. Its also important to remember to carry portion-controlled snacks at all time to boost blood sugars if they should dip during a hot day.

EnergyFirst CEO Gerry Morton and Celebrated Guide Andrew Skurka Treks the John Muir Trail in One Week

Manhattan Beach, Calif. (PRWEB) June 24, 2014

The John Muir Trail runs 221 miles from Yosemite Valley to the summit of Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the continental United States. It is a challenging trek that averages 10,000 feet in elevation, with several mountain passes that are in excess of 13,000 feet. It takes most trained hikers three or four weeks to make the hike.

EnergyFirst CEO Gerry Morton and professional backpacker Andrew Skurka finished it in one week.

Why attempt such a hike in one week? As a busy CEO and devoted family man, Morton set out to accomplish the trek and relish the beauty of the Serria Mountain Range in one week because, At this point in my life, thats the maximum time I could take away from my family and business. Plus, Im always up for a challenge!

Morton, with a proven record in endurance feats and accomplishments, prepared and trained for the hike with the same focus he brings to his business. In addition to degrees in nutrition, business, and entrepreneurship, Morton has participated in four Ironman Triathlons (including the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii), run over 35 marathons (including the Boston Marathon) and took part in the Catalina Classic, a 32 mile paddle board race. As CEO of EnergyFirst, his line of all-natural supplements embodies his philosophy of embracing a healthy lifestyle and pushing ones body to its limits.

While Morton knew he had the training to accomplish his goal, he knew he needed guidance from an expert in hiking, so he sought out Skurka, the absolute best in the field.

Skurka, an experienced guide on the trail, was named “Adventurer of the Year” by National Geographic Adventure, Person of the Year by Backpacker Magazine and is in Mens Journal “Adventurer Hall of Fame.” One year earlier, Skurka completed a 4,700-mile 6-month expedition around Alaska and Yukon by foot, ski, and packraft.

The pair averaged 33 miles a day, saw an elevation change of 84,000 feet and took over 500,000 steps. Their rucksacks weighed in at under eight pounds, plus food and water, and they neither carried nor filtered their water. I recognize that not everyone would aspire to complete the entire JMT in a week, but Im unapologetic about valuing the mental and physical difficulties that are inherent to such an undertaking, says Skurka.

Says Morton, This is definitely Americas most beautiful trail – the John Muir. It was absolutely spectacular. To finish it off here at the highest point in the continguous United States is fantastic. What a week!
