Today is National Stress Management Day

by etotzeva on April 17, 2012  |  Topics: News

Today, April 17th, is National Stress Awareness Day! Coincidentally it falls on the very stressful Tax Day.

Our blood pressure rises, we breathe more quickly, we become tense. How often do most of us experience these symptoms at least daily?

Researchers say that a certain amount of stress is healthy – it forces us to meet that deadline and can even act to protect us through our natural fight or flight response. However, constant high stress levels have been shown to be detrimental to our health and have even been linked to heart problems, dementia, and seizures.

Each of us have different symptoms of stress, but how we manage those situations is what’s important. Some of us may experience food cravings – others, loss of appetite. Some, feelings of anxiety – others, feelings of lethargy.

So what’s the best way to deal with stress? By taking some time out of today to just relax and then make it a practice every day. Whether it’s exercising, writing in a journal, meditating, or taking up a hobby, it’ll make a huge difference for your mental state.

Equally as important are the foods you eat. Look out for complex carbs that boost levels of serotonin, a calming brain chemical, like oatmeal or pasta. Stay away from simple carbs like sweets and soft drinks because they’ll only provide short-term stress relief. And instead of coffee, which boosts blood pressure and stress hormones, try a warm black tea, which has been shown to have a calming effect.

Happy stress managing!

Nutritionix launches Taco Bell Nutrition Calculator

by mattsilv on April 5, 2012  |  Topics: Announcements, Restaurants

As part of an ongoing push for transparency in nutrition, Nutritionix has announced the official launch of the Taco Bell Nutrition Calculator, a free tool for consumers.

The calculator allows Taco Bell customers to add multiple items to their meal, and generate one nutrition label summarizing the nutrition facts for the entire meal.

While Taco Bell does currently list nutrition information on their official web site, Daniel Zadoff, co-founder of Nutritionix, explains why consumers wanted more: “We were surprised by the hundreds of inquiries we received requesting that we add Taco Bell nutrition data to our calculator platform.  Because every restaurant displays nutrition data in a different format on their web site, consumers overwhelmingly prefer to view this data in a more standardized, familiar display.  That is exactly what we offer.”

Nutritionix currently lists nutrition information for over 200 restaurants in the US, providing a familiar user-friendly view to consumers.
