Fairwood Health & Body Transition Offers Travel Advice to Keep Summer Bodies and Weight in Healthy Shape

Toledo, OH (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

As summer frequently involves eating, drinking and sleeping at odd hours of the day or night, these disruptions to daily routines may affect individual diets and their overall health. Dr. Jason Peisley, Founder and Clinical Director of Fairwood Healthy & Body Transition, reminds the public that a well-balanced diet is key to losing weight.

Many of us are going on vacation during the summer months, and while it might be more convenient to grab fast food in between pitstops during a family roadtrip or a layover at the airport, consuming prepackaged foods do not provide our bodies with the nutrients they need, cautioned Dr. Peisley.

Eating junk food from a bag, bottle or can will cause our bodies to get hungrier, faster this sends a false signal to our bodies that we are starving, causing our bodies to then retain even more fat as a result, he continued.

At Fairwood Health & Body Transition, Dr. Peisley and his staff approach weight loss through focusing on education, holistic solutions, enhanced nutrition tools and behavior modification.

When youre vacationing on a beach somewhere, or hiking through a rainforest or jungle in a foreign country, it might be harder to plan your diet accordingly, acknowledged Dr. Peisley.

Taking the time to make healthy choices, however, will lead to a healthier body, whether youre simply walking through a new city or cooling off in the comfort of your own home this summer, said Dr. Peisley.

The first step, according to Dr. Peisley, is to learn what and how fat hormones are triggered, sharing three fat-burning secrets below:

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Teams Up With NutriSavings to Make Healthy Grocery Shopping Easy and More Affordable for Employees and Members

Newton, MA (PRWEB) June 20, 2014

Harvard Pilgrim subscribers who enroll in NutriSavings will earn financial rewards based on their healthy grocery purchases, and will access digital tools to improve their nutritional IQ and enhance their grocery shopping experience. Harvard Pilgrim rolled out NutriSavings under the brand EatRight RewardsSM in a pilot to their employees. The pilot measured the current shopping habits of employees along with the effect incentives had on purchase behavior. Harvard Pilgrim was recently approved by insurance regulators in Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, to roll out the program to members.

The costs of obesity and other chronic diseases associated with poor nutrition are staggering to both employees and employers, said Gerard Bridi, NutriSavings’ CEO. NutriSavings believes in the power of better nutrition to improve health, boost productivity and reduce employee absenteeism. We are pleased to see high employee engagement levels at Harvard Pilgrim and attribute this to the fact that grocery shopping is universal and a necessity. Nutrition touches people each and every day at work and at the dinner table.

More than 70% of healthcare expenses stem from obesity-related chronic illnesses. In the United States, where medical coverage is provided by employers, this represents an estimated cost of $ 850 per employee per month. NutriSavings addresses this epidemic by educating and incentivizing employees to eat healthier.

Several measures were used to determine pilot program success including employee engagement and shopping basket score change over time. Employee engagement is measured by tracking the number of employees who enroll their supermarket loyalty cards and use it while grocery shopping. More than one-third of Harvard Pilgrim employees participated in the pilot program, recording more than 4,000 shopping trips. More than 65% of their shopping trips registered average shopping basket nutritional scores of 60 or higher on a scale of 1 to 100 with 100 as the best. The average shopping basket score nationally has been calculated at between 30 and 45.

We are thrilled to see that Harvard Pilgrim employees are making healthier choices, said Niraj Jetly, NutriSavings SVP, COO/CIO. The universality of the grocery shopping experience is evident from the fact that we are seeing higher levels of engagement for employees in the age groups of 31 and above.

NutriSavings created the first online ecosystem where produce growers, employers, health plans, wellness organizations, and food and beverage companies join forces to get employees healthy. Harvard Pilgrims EatRight Rewards RewardsSM members and their families have access to exclusive e-discounts on healthy foods, offered by major food and beverage companies. On their desktop, tablet or smartphone, participants also have online access to nutrition panels, ingredient lists, and nutritional scores on more than 100,000 products, along with healthy recipes and practical tips from nutritionists and dietitians, which they can share with others.

What better way to encourage people to eat well than to put money in their pockets for choosing healthy foods, said Eric H. Schultz, President and CEO of Harvard Pilgrim. We want our employees and members to lead happy, healthy lives and good nutrition plays an important role in making that happen. Eating healthy can lead to weight loss and reductions in cholesterol, blood pressure and sugar levels. These factors help to lower overall health insurance costs.

A study of US businesses conducted in 2013 by the National Business Group on Health (NGBH) revealed an increase in spending on programs to promote balanced nutrition and regular physical exercise. This year, approximately 95% of American companies plan to set up incentive programs, and expect to spend $ 594 per employee per year on average, or more than twice as much as in 2009. NutriSavings partners with large employers and health plans to deliver incentive-based nutrition programs that educate employees on better nutrition and reward them for buying healthy food products.
