    Recording artist Papa Joe Aviance lost 250 lbs. in eighteen months shopping for discounted healthy food at the 99¢ Store and walking five miles a day around Los Angeles


    - His motto: “You don’t have to be wealthy to be healthy!” -

    Papa Joe Aviance


    At 450 pounds, Papa Joe couldn’t stand watching his own music video and vowed to lose the weight, once and for all…

    Unfortunately, he was unemployed at the time and couldn’t afford a gym membership or Whole Foods diet. So Papa Joe began shopping for healthy food at his local 99 Cent Store and pounded the pavement—walking five miles a day, every day with his favorite tunes blasting in his headphones.

    Now a healthy 200 pounds, Papa Joe is a health and wellness advocate, touring the country to speak about the health benefits of walking and motivating obese children and adults in Los Angeles to follow in his footsteps. He believes strongly that the individuals most affected by obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease are the ones that can least afford the often-costly remedies.

    (BPRW) McDonald's USA Adding Calorie Counts to Menu Boards, Publishes Nutrition Progress Report, Innovating With Recommended Food Groups


    - McDonald’s leadership takes further steps in journey toward helping customers, employees make informed nutrition choices -


    (BLACK PR WIRE) – OAK BROOK, Ill. (Sept. 12, 2012) – McDonald’s USA President Jan Fields announced today that, starting next week, the company will list calorie information on restaurant and drive-thru menus nationwide to further help customers and employees make informed, nutrition-minded choices.

    In addition to menu board labeling, McDonald’s published its first-ever nutrition progress report and revealed several 2013 menu innovations in test that will include recommended food groups from the United States Department of Agriculture’s 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans reflected in the messages supporting MyPlate. These are the latest in a series of actions to support McDonald’s “Commitments to Offer Improved Nutrition Choices,” announced July 2011. The comprehensive plan aims to help customers and employees make informed nutrition choices whether visiting McDonald’s or eating elsewhere.

    McDonald's USA
    Menu Board Labeling to Inform Customer Choices
    “At McDonald’s, we recognize customers want to know more about the nutrition content of the food and beverages they order,” said Fields. “As a company that has provided nutrition information for more than 30 years, we are pleased to add to the ways we make nutrition information available to our customers and employees.”

    According to recent research by the International Food Information Council Foundation, about 15 percent of Americans accurately estimate the number of calories they need to maintain their weight. This past summer, McDonald’s introduced a “Favorites Under 400” menu that highlights the calorie information for some of customers’ favorite foods and beverages to help put calorie counts in better context.

    Later this fall, approximately 750,000 employees working in McDonald’s and franchisee restaurants in the U.S. will be introduced to a voluntary nutrition e-learning program. The program will help build employees’ knowledge of calories, nutrition and McDonald’s menu offerings.

    These programs follow the launch of McDonald’s mobile app late last year that provides customers with on-the-go nutrition information, as well as an updated online meal-builder that offers customizable information.

    “McDonald’s initiatives to provide Apple Slices and a fat-free milk option in the Happy Meals are aligned with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010, as is the goal to reduce sodium, added sugars and saturated fats in foods,” said Judith C. Rodriguez, PhD, RD, LD/N, FADA, Chairperson and Professor, Department of Nutrition and Dietetics, Brooks College of Health. “The transparency and availability of nutrition information enables consumers to make choices and can help caregivers teach and model decision-making behavior to children. These are life skills that will benefit them not only at McDonald’s but in every aspect of life.”

    2013 Menu Tests Include More Recommended Food Groups
    To make nutritious choices more convenient and accessible, McDonald’s revealed plans today to test foods that would increase the number of wholesome choices on its menu. The menu items being explored for 2013 include more recommended food groups. Among the additions being tested:

    • More seasonal fruit and vegetables options, such as blueberries and cucumbers, during peak seasons.

    • Additional produce side options and grilled chicken choices for Happy Meals.

    • The McWrap, inspired by McDonald’s Europe, features fresh vegetables and is available in three flavors – Chicken & Bacon, Sweet Chili Chicken, and Chicken & Ranch – starting at 350 calories.

    • New breakfast choices, including an egg-white breakfast sandwich on an English muffin made with 8 grams of whole grain.

    New McDonald’s Report Measures Company’s Nutrition Progress
    McDonald’s published its first nutrition report today, “McDonald’s USA Nutrition Journey: 2012 Progress Report,” which measures McDonald’s nutrition performance over the past year. Ernst & Young LLP conducted an independent examination of McDonald’s progress against its commitment goals. Report highlights focus on three key nutrition commitments:

    • Children’s Well-Being – McDonald’s new Happy Meal launched in March 2012 and now automatically includes Apple Slices and a kids-size fry. Fat-free chocolate milk was also added as an additional beverage choice. More than 90 percent of McDonald’s paid national Happy Meal television advertising since March 2012 has included a positive nutrition and/or active lifestyle message for kids. Additional communication vehicles like the Happy Meal box and happymeal.com website also now provide kids and families with messages on nutrition or being active. McDonald’s advertising has focused on building kids’ enthusiasm for fruits and other choices that meet the nutritional criteria outlined in the Children’s Food and Beverage Advertising Initiative (CFBAI) Food Pledge.

    • Nutritionally Balanced Menu Choices – The new Happy Meal is anticipated to introduce about 100 million cups of apples annually into the diets of McDonald’s youngest customers. Since February 2011, McDonald’s has reduced sodium across its national core menu of food choices by more than 11 percent. In total, more than half of McDonald’s national food items had a reduction in sodium, ranging from 1 percent to 35 percent. In addition, each of McDonald’s oatmeal provides two servings of whole grain. Since the introduction of the oatmeal line in January 2011, the company has served more than 427 million servings of whole grain.

    • Nutrition Information and Education – More than 290,000 people have downloaded McDonald’s new mobile application that gives customers access to nutritional information.

    “We’ve made a lot of good progress toward our nutrition commitments and we recognize there’s still more to do,” said Senior Director of Nutrition for McDonald’s USA Dr. Cindy Goody, PhD, MBA, RD. “As we continue to accelerate our nutrition-related efforts, we’re dedicated to offering balanced menu options and making nutrition information accessible to employees of McDonald’s and its franchisees, as well as today’s busy customers.”

    About McDonald’s Nutrition Commitments and Report
    In July 2011, McDonald’s announced its Commitments to Offer Improved Nutrition Choices. A full copy of McDonald’s 2012 nutrition report – measuring the company’s performance toward these commitments – is available online. McDonald’s will continue to collaborate with credible third-party organizations to examine the company’s performance against its commitments and progress will continue to be reported publicly.

    Evans, who values Jenny’s support system, credits her success to her personal consultant Michele. “All of the greats have had a coach. You can name anybody who’s been great in their life and they’ve had someone that was giving them the tools to be successful, so why wouldn’t I do the same with this?” said Evans. “Jenny’s program completely supports me and I have a personal consultant to coach me, set out a plan and cheer me on!”

    Evans will join Team Jenny at the American Heart Association Heart Walk in Atlanta, GA on September 22. Jenny Craig is proud to be a national sponsor of nearly 350 Heart Walks, in support of the American Heart Association's My Heart.

    Eat and drink diet foods or not? Yes or no? That is the question!

    These days it’s hard to figure out what’s safe to eat or drink diet foods without counting calories, starving yourself, giving up your favorite foods, or eating bland packaged foods. In her new book Lose Weight Without Dieting or Working Out, Nutritionist and certified weight loss expert JJ Smith says you have to be really careful when shopping at the grocery store.

    Why? Diet foods can make you fat.
    “Many products,” she says, “are allowed to use the word ‘diet’, because they have some reduced amount of sugar or fat. But unless you look really carefully at all the ingredients, you won’t be able to identify all the hidden ones that can contribute to weight gain.” She’s come up with a quick list of the reasons why anyone who is trying to slim down needs to avoid certain diet foods:

    Sugar-free baked goods
    Read the labels carefully! They can have the same or even more fat than the original recipes! You may also be fooled into eating so many because they were labeled as “diet” that you exceed your daily goals without even realizing it. Try graham crackers instead. They have less sugar than other cookies and very little fat, about 2 grams per serving.

    african american dieting with JJ Smith
    Fat-free dressings
    Most fat-free dressings are really higher in sugar, which basically just defeats the whole purpose of eating a fat free food. Read the label carefully. Select a reduced fat dressing that contains olive or canola oil that has 2 to 4 grams of fat per serving.

    Diet Sodas
    Contain artificial sweeteners that can cause health problems and have no nutritional value. When the body finds nothing recognizable as nutrition, it continues to crave something nutritional, which increases cravings and appetite. They can create food cravings for sweets. Drink water or green tea instead of diet soda.

    Fruit Snacks
    Don’t be fooled by packaging claims that say it is ‘made with real fruit or fruit juices’! They are packed with added sugars and artificial ingredients that have little or no nutritional value. Read the label and see the grams of sugars and the amount of carbohydrates and fat. Eat real fruit instead, which is rich in fiber, phytonutrients, and cancer fighting anti-oxidants!

    High-protein Diet Bars (Power Bars) and Shakes
    When the body receives a protein or power bar, it tries to break down the sugar and chemicals in it, but when they cannot be fully digested by the body, the excess ends up being stored in the body as fat. This excess can actually produce a weight gain instead of a weight loss. It’s better to eat a vegetable like avocado, which is healthier and high in protein.

    Artificial Sweeteners
    Those little yellow, pink and blue packages – the ‘sugar substitutes’ may have zero calories, but don’t be fooled. They increase appetite by sending false signals to the brain that sweet food is on the way, and when it never arrives, the brain never gives the signal that you are satisfied causing cravings for sweets. There’s research that shows that aspartame in particular, stimulates the release of insulin, which tells the body to store fat! Bottom line – they actually contribute to weight gain.

    “The best alternative,” JJ says, “is to limit or avoid these foods! Drink more water and eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. You’ll feel better, lose more weight, and enjoy what you eat more too.”
