Is sushi healthy? How to eat it and still lose weight

A lot of people believe that going out for sushi is a lighter, healthier option and a great way to eat out and still lose weight. But not all things on the menu will help you drop a pant size.

Here are a few things that will:
– Start your meal with a miso soup instead of noodle soup — This is a great place to ditch empty carbs that will only pack on the pounds.

– Order brown rice instead of white rice rolls — White rice has been bleached and stripped of it’s nutrients so when you’re body digests it, it’s immediately turned to sugar which causes your blood sugar to spike and drop. Brown rice will keep you fuller faster and longer.

– Order rolls with avocado instead of tempura — Avocado contains those healthy fats that won’t have you squeezing into your skinny jeans.

– Request low sodium soy sauce instead of regular, which can cut sodium up to 50% so you can kiss post-sushi bloating goodbye.

– And if you’ll be drinking — try sake instead of wine. Sake has a lower acidity and it doesn’t contain sulfites or the chemicals that cause hangovers.

Is Sushi Really That Healthy?

Is Sushi Really That Healthy?

Is Sushi Really That Healthy?

Sushi has become pretty mainstream by now — you can even find it at most local supermarkets. When it’s filled with omega-3 rich seafood like tuna and salmon or heart healthy avocado it’s a very healthy addition to your diet. But the health benefits of sushi can quickly decline once condiments like mayo and cream cheese enter the picture or tempura batter. A shrimp tempura roll with spicy mayo can be 500 calories and could contain more than 20 grams of fat. Another thing to be mindful of is sodium-rich soy sauce — one tablespoon has 40% of your daily recommended sodium intake. And if there are brown rice alternatives, it’s always healthier to choose brown rice over white.

Is Sushi Bad for You?

Sushi is delicious, but is it healthy or not?

The Past, Present, and Future of Sushi (NPR – On Point): http://www.wbur.org/onpoint/2016/08/19/sushi-sustainable-future-prep

Sushi was once an exotic food in the United States, but now this delicious food from Japan seems to be everywhere in America. With so many people eating sushi now, a lot are wondering, is sushi healthy? Well, as is the case with many foods, there isn’t a simple yes or no answer.

It is the most expensive – and many would argue delicious – part of a sushi menu.
But one man’s love of sashimi nearly killed him after it led to his body becoming riddled with tapeworm.
The Chinese man had gone to his doctor complaining of stomach ache and itchy skin.

To his horror, scans revealed his entire body had been infected with tapeworm after eating too much sashimi – raw slices of fish.

Doctors believe some of the uncooked Japanese delicacy of raw meat or fish must have become contaminated.

He was treated at the Guangzhou No. 8 People’s Hospital in Guangdong Province, in eastern China.

Research has shown that eating raw or undercooked fish can lead to a variety of parasitic infections.

In this video:

Sashimi is just sliced raw fish, sometimes dipped in sauces and sometimes served with sushi. Sushi is any food dish consisting of vinegared rice, usually served with some other toppings, but not always. It happens to often be served with various types of sea food, either cooked or raw, and perhaps even a mix of the two; but that tradition simply comes from the primary food staples of the locations where sushi originated (not Japan, by the way). Sushi can be served with just about any toppings or none at all.

Mangosteen Health Benefits

Mangosteen Health Benefits

 

The natural health researchers at Institute for Vibrant Living (IVL) have investigated the properties of the Mangosteen and it’s purported natural health benefits. Here is their report:

If you discovered a fruit which was found to boost energy, counter inflammation, was a powerful antioxidant and had anti-ageing properties, wouldn’t you add it to your weekly shopping list?

YES!!…

What is Mangosteen?

Mangosteen is an ugly dark red fruit with a clover-shaped green stem. It has been shown to provide all these health benefits and more and is providing some interesting results in recent research.

Mangosteen is a slow-growing tropical tree which is native to southeast Asia. The tree can grow up to 80 feet tall in a humid equatorial climate and thrives in Thailand, Burma and some parts of tropical Australia. The fruit is the size of a small orange and has three parts.

The thick burgundy-colored pericarp or rind contains a high intensity of Xanthones; the white pulp inside is one of the tastiest fruits in the world, and the seeds are found within the pulp.

The health benefits of mangosteen have been known for centuries in Asian medicine and it is used for treating skin wounds, rashes, inflammation and diarrhea. The dark red pericarp of the mangosteen fruit is ground with a mortar and used to dress infections. The accumulated knowledge of this wonder fruit has been passed down through the generations and used extensively in the Far East.

Specific Health Benefits of Mangosteen

Now, scientific study of mangosteen fruit shows that these benefits aren’t just mythical. The latest research into what makes mangosteen so effective shows that the rind of mangosteen is high in polyphenol compounds called xanthones which are rich in antioxidant properties. These are already known to be beneficial in the treatment of  cardiovascular diseases, including ischemic heart disease, atherosclerosis, hypertension and thrombosis.

Xanthones are found in other rainforest plants and dark red fruits such as purple kumara, a staple for New Zealand Maoris. Researchers found that Alpha Mangostin and Gamma Mangostin, both found in the outer skin of mangosteens, have a significant effect on cardiovascular health.

They are natural antibiotics with antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties as well as containing some of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature. Modern science is finally catching up with what herbal doctors have known for centuries.

A Natural Cure For TB?

Mangosteen has also been found to have an inhibitory effect on bacterial organisms, in particular Mycobacterium Tuberculosis, the cause of most cases of tuberculosis, and Staphylococcus Aureus, which commonly causes post-surgical infections. This fruit has been found to support and strengthen a weak immune system.

Most people are aware of the importance of the antioxidant properties in health supplements such as Vitamins C and E but these are actually synthetic vitamin supplements. How much more effective and safe it is to take antioxidants in a natural form, as Mother Nature intended.

Whole food antioxidants have been shown to be much more powerful than synthetic products, and mangosteen has a bounty of antioxidants within its thick outer pericarp, winning high praise and respect from many scientists and researchers.

Advocates of the health benefits of mangosteen suggest that those who start to include mangosteen in their health regimen do not need to be told it is good for them, they will actually feel the benefits.

Sushi can be very healthy but there are 6 Things that can sabotage your sushi that you need to watch out for….let’s dive right in

Tempura rolls = tempura is made from flour battering then frying in oil (Vegetable oil or canola oil are most commonly used and over 90 percent of canola oil is genetically modified and consist of partially hydrogenated oil (the worst type of fat, this is the oil that causes heart disease)
Cream cheese in rolls = high in fat that can clog your arteries and loaded with calories
High fat sauces (think spicy mayo or any cream based specialty sauces)
Farmed fish and fish high in toxic metals such as mercury (Seafood species that are high in mercury include king mackerel, marlin, orange roughy, shark, swordfish, tilefish, ahi tuna, and bigeye tuna)
Sushi white rice = it’s made with sugar (high glycemic)
Using Soy Sauce. Sushi is high in salt to begin with but adding soy sauce make it even higher in salt.

How to avoid the sushi pitfalls:

Don’t order tempura rolls
Swap out cream cheese with avocado
Be sure you’re eating at a quality sushi restaurant. Go somewhere that you know they have a high turnover so you know it’s fresh. If you really want to take it to the next level ask if the fish is farmed or wild caught. Eat fish known to be low in toxins (Seafood species that are low in mercury include salmon, eel, sea urchin, trout, crab and octopus)
Substitute brown rice for white rice to get more fiber and slow the sugar spike or ask for rolls to be rolled without rice all or request that your rolls contain a little less rice and more vegetables to further increase the nutrient content and make them feel more filling.
Use low sodium soy sauce or better yet don’t use soy sauce at all. Use the ginger instead to add some extra flavor and nutrients.

The Sushi Chef with Masaharu Morimoto

On the Art and Practice of Sushi

Published on May 16, 2016

Masaharu Morimoto is most famously known for being an Iron Chef, but there is another side of him we don’t get to see too often. In addition to his life on TV, Chef Morimoto is a successful restaurateur who has worked long and hard to build a team that can create great food at each of his restaurants. We spend time with Morimoto at two of his restaurants, Morimoto in Chelsea and Momosan Ramen & Sake in Midtown.

Morimoto had two dreams when he was a child, to become a sushi chef or a professional baseball player. After sustaining an injury he dedicated his life to sushi and since then has applied himself to the art and practice of sushi every day. As Morimoto says, “I don’t want to be a celebrity or a celebrity chef. I want to be known as a legitimate chef.”
