Seafood Nutrition Partnership Teams With NutriSavings to Incentivize Healthy Eating

Arlington, VA (PRWEB) April 23, 2015

Amid an ongoing epidemic of heart disease and other preventable illnesses in the United States, the public health sector has long struggled to find ways to promote and incentivize healthy diets. In response, the nonprofit Seafood Nutrition Partnership has announced its partnership with a unique online platform that drives healthier eating through the encouragement of seafood consumption: NutriSavings.

NutriSavings works with health insurers and employers to motivate wellness in the workplace, specifically through healthy grocery shopping. Depending on an employers incentives, employees can earn cash-back rewards for purchasing healthy food products at participating supermarket retailers, while evaluating their shopping behavior with a robust scoring system that ranks the nutritional quality of food items. Seafood Nutrition Partnership is providing NutriSavings with information about the health benefits of seafood and tips to help consumers identify a variety of fish and shellfish options at the grocery store, in order to inspire healthier choices and nutrition understanding surrounding seafood.

This program is the latest in a series of initiatives from Seafood Nutrition Partnership, including public awareness campaigns and the Heart Healthy Pledge, designed to help address Americas public health crisis. In the US, 70% of deaths are from preventable diseases, with heart disease being the number one cause of death. While USDA dietary guidelines recommend eating seafood twice a week for optimal health and reducing the risk of dying from heart disease by 36%, only 20% of Americans follow this recommendation.

By collaborating with NutriSavings program that offers rewards for healthy seafood purchases, the Seafood Nutrition Partnership hopes to remind consumers not only about the essential heart and brain health benefits of seafood, but about how healthier eating helps families economically in the long run.

When people are healthy, everyonefamilies, employers, health insurers, tax payerssaves money, said Linda Cornish, executive director of Seafood Nutrition Partnership. For many consumers, simply knowing the health benefits of eating seafood may not be enough of an incentive to incorporate it into their diets. With NutriSavings, they can enjoy a financial return and invest in their long-term health and wellness at the same time.

The Healthy Eating Obsession: A Live Tweet Chat with Patricia Pitts, PhD and Karen David, RD


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 09, 2015

The Bella Vita, one of the nations leading treatment centers for eating disorders, including anorexia, bulimia and binge eating, will host a Twitter chat from 11 am to 12 pm Pacific time on Tuesday, March 24th with Patricia Pitts, PhD, the centers Founder and CEO, and Karen David, RD, the centers Director of Nutritional Services. The subject for the chat, The Healthy Eating Obsession, is designated by the hashtag #EDinsight. Participants can follow the chat on any web chat application such as http://www.tweetchat.com.

The Bella Vitas Dr. Pitts and David has treated and guided thousands of patients on the path back to wellness. There are patients who have walked through our doors confused as to how or why they needed treatment for an eating disorder; in their minds all they believe is that, I eat pure and clean! Hey, I dont have a problem. We are supposed to eat healthy! explained David. The issue is not in eating healthy; its in obsessively eating healthy.

The obsession of healthy eating can lead to orthorexia nervosa. In 1997, Steve Bratman, MD coined the term, from the Greek words: ortho (correct, right), orexis (appetite, desire), from his personal struggles with healthy eating. Someone struggling with orthorexia has a, maniacal obsession for healthy food. The disorder parallels anorexia nervosa where orthorexics will restrict themselves and focus only on eating foods of high quality foods that are pure and clean.

Dr. Pitts has experienced similar patient sharing during eating disorder treatment, To someone with orthorexia, the change in eating behaviors initially begins with good intention. There is a desire to eat and be healthy. Sadly, the compulsion becomes greater than the intention; thus, exposing underlying psychological dynamics such as: a need for control, increase in anxiety, poor body image and ultimately, low self-worth.

During the tweet chat, Dr. Pitts and David will provide clinical and nutritional insight on how healthy eating becomes obsessive while inspiring hope towards wellness for those struggling with orthorexia. Dr. Pitts explained, I understand the orthorexics struggles; I have lived my own eating disorder journey. I firmly believe that each individual with an eating disorder is already whole. Their eating disorder protects them from uncovering missing pieces in their lives. I am honored to walk beside our patients as they discover that they can live fulfilled lives without their eating disorder behaviors. Pitts concluded, Together, we can embrace those missing pieces to find freedom from their eating disorder. Their freedom leads to reestablishing a healthy self-esteem and fostering positive relationships with others, body image, and food.

About The Bella Vita.

We guide our patients through a myriad of seemingly insurmountable obstacles associated with ED helping to uncover the connections between food and life that result in a decline in physical and mental health.
