National Nutrition Month 2013: Party Girl Diet author Aprilanne Hurley appears live on Good Day Sacramento with host Marianne McClary for the inside look at how to lose weight and keep it off without the deprivation and restrictions typical of fad diets. On the Party Girl Diet you can drink wine, eat chocolate, even eat meatballs and spaghetti in addition to a wide variety of delicious foods…and lose weight while you are having the time of your life.
In addition to revealing how to lose weight with a healthy, sustainable lifestyle outlined in The Party Girl Diet, Hurley emphasizes that the secret to weight maintenance is creating a balanced life by eating the right amount of food and getting the right amount of exercise. Hurley is also a huge supporter of eating certain natural foods containing probiotics and prebiotics to help aid digestion and promote a flat belly. Hurley recommends getting your probiotics and prebiotics from the foods you eat over taking an oral supplement.
The Good Day Sacramento Party Girl Diet segment below covers foods that aid in digestion, debuts Hurley’s Signature Fresh Flat-Belly Salsa Recipe, and demonstrates how to make The Party Girl Diet’s famous “Morning After Mocktail” as a natural and gentle detoxifying pick me up.
The Party Girl Diet enjoys cult status in books with a history of ranking in the Top 5 books on Amazon’s Best Sellers List for Kindle books in Weight Maintenance and Weight Loss, and #2 in Cooking, Food & Wine – Natural Foods on Amazon’s Best Seller list.
Special thanks to Good Day Sacramento cast & crew for a super fun day in Sacramento, CA.

Healthy Party Girl: Want a Winning Recipe to Enhance Your Beauty & Your Brains? Crab Cioppino is a dish you can serve a crowd, or make for an intimate dinner for two.
Crab Cippino – is a tomato based seafood stew that in addition to fresh crab, calls for an assortment of other fish – which, in line with the latest US Dietary Guideline should be consumed at least twice a week as part of a healthy diet.
Originally crowned the ultimate “brain food,” Omega 3 Fatty Acid rich fish such as salmon, trout, and halibut to name a few offer numerous health benefits due to their Omega 3 Fatty Acid properties.
According to the Harvard School of Public Health – in addition to providing protection against heart disease and possibly stroke, higher does of omega-3 fatty acids are used to treat depression, and “new studies identifying potential benefits for a wide range of conditions including cancer, inflammatory bowel diseases and other autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.”
Omega-3 fats have been linked with health benefits such as lowering the risk of heart attack and may reduce irregular heart rhythms. Omega-3 fats work to prevent disease by regulating blood clotting and the contraction and relaxation of artery walls. They also lower blood pressure and heart rates, improve blood vessel function, and at higher doses, lower triglycerides and may ease inflammation.
Since our bodies don’t produce Omega-3 fatty acids we need to rely on food sources containing them for numerous normal body functions, such as controlling blood clotting and building cell membranes in the brain. It is however, always recommended that you seek to get your omega-3 from foods choices and not from supplementation. Note of caution about supplementation – always, always, I repeat – ALWAYS check with your doctor or health care provider before taking a fish oil supplement.
So what foods can you find Omega 3-fats in? Omega 3- fats are found in fish such as salmon, tuna, and trout, herring, halibut, and sardines, as well as Omega-3 eggs that have been fortified with DHA. Omega-3 fats in the form of ALA’s (alph-linolenic acid) can also be found in flaxseeds, walnuts, and soybeans. ALA can be found in olive oils, canola oils, and in dark green leaf vegetables such as kale, spinach and Brussels spouts, as well as in some animal fats such as grass-fed animals.
What about the health concerns regarding mercury and other environmental contaminants found in some fish species?
According to JAMA – The Journal of the American Medical Association, “Overall, the health benefits of eating fish greatly out-weight the potential risks – especially when guidelines are used to reduce the small chance of being affected by these risks.”
“For men and women not of childbearing age, it is not clear that mercury exposure from typical levels of fish intake has any adverse health effects. In contrast, fish intake has significant benefits for reducing the risk of death from heart disease, the number one cause of death.” Pregnant and breastfeeding women should “avoid the 4 types of fish that are higher in mercury content: shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and golden bass.” In light of these cons however - research shows there are a multitude of beneficial health benefits associated with Omega-3 Fatty Acid rich fish and food sources and everyone should really strive to include two servings of fatty fish a week into their diets. So why not start today?!
