It has been spreading awareness in the area and educating people for more than 20 years

Diet Center chose AUST because it cares about students’ health and it was interested in spreading health awareness in the university.

Knowing that people especially students need to pay attention to what they eat: Having a large order of fries or a bag of chips after class may give a temporary boost, but a snack this high in fat and calories will only slow you down in the long run! And causes obesity, heart diseases…

Nutrition and Diet Center was happy to announce that it started catering healthy meals for this year at AUST Bloc A to avoid all the side effects of bad snacking.

Healthy snacking : improves overall health, controls cravings, fights weight gain, regulates mood, boosts brain power and gives you the energy & concentration you need to keep going all day

Students will be able to enjoy:

Delicious manakish (e.g thyme that is rich in antioxidant)

Croissants (eg.chocolat croissant that is rich in magnesium for a better mood), cookies, dried fruits mixes

Mouthwatering burgers, sandwiches

Fresh salads (e.g tabbouleh, Mexican all colorful and rich in antioxidants to protect you from diseases) for lunch
And many more…

But Don’t forget to exercise, after all a healthy lifestyle is the combination between healthy eating and sports. Why? Exercise benefits every part of your body, including the mind. It lowers the risk of diseases and helps you get in shape, sleep better and spend your days in a better mood and good concentration.

Souk el tayyeb day 1

As a part of the awareness campaign that the European Union is organizing in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce in Beirut and The Diet Center around the importance of the Mediterranean Diet, Souk Al Tayyeb was the chosen destination for our next event. Its popularity and its potential in attracting a highly varied audience from the nutritionally aware and educated people to others with no knowledge about the Food Pyramid, from young students to elderly farmers, made it the ideal place for us to raise awareness about the Mediterranean diet. Our dietitians were standing in two booths facing each other. One was for the educational part and the other one for the tasting part. On the first stand the dietitians were explaining to the people passing by the importance of the MedDiet and its benefits by putting in plain words the Mediterranean food pyramid and the representative food tray. Right across this stand there was a buffet prepared by the Diet Center offering at first breakfast and later on lunch. The food in this buffet was representative of the food items promoted as main components of the MedDiet. We were pleased to find that people were very responsive to our presentation.

Souk el Tayyeb day 2

Our Souk el Tayyeb experience carried on for a second day on the following Saturday. This time, our stand was placed right at the entrance of the souk in order to attract more people. As the previous week, we displayed the Med Diet pyramid accompanied by the typical Med Diet tray. Our dieticians were there to inform people about the Mediterranean diet and remind them about its health benefits. This time also, a wide number of people showed interest in learning about the Mediterranean diet. We also brought back our buffet through which we offered to people a variety of our breakfast meals as well as a selection of our lunch and dessert meals. We picked our meals to be the most representative of the Med Diet. Overall, our “Souk el tayyeb experience” turned out to be a very good one. We got the exposure to an audience who is willing to put enough effort into making better eating choices.

Visit to Jbeil

In light of our on-going collaboration with the European Union in raising awareness on the MedDiet in our region and in promoting its health benefits, we organized an educational yet fun outing for the students of Jbeil's public school. The theme of our outing was: “Olive oil, its health benefits and its importance in the MedDiet”. And what better way to learn all about olive oil than visiting its production site? So, with the support of Jbeil's municipality, we took the students to their region's famous olive mills. Young as they were (10-12 years old), we knew that teaching them about the MedDiet was going to be a challenging mission for us. However, we got the pleasurable surprise to discover how knowledgeable these students were about the making process of olive oil and how interested they were in learning all about the MedDiet. Our pictures speak for themselves

Diabetes day at AUB

On Saturday, November 16th, the Lebanese Medical Students’ International Committee – Standing Committee on Public Health (AUB) held their annual Diabetes Walk in Ein El Mrayse, Beirut.
The aim of this campaign is to spread awareness about diabetes, to elaborate on its means of prevention, and to offer ways of dealing with its many complications.
Members worked in groups and walked around talking to passers-by, and quizzed them about facts related to Diabetes. Stands were also set and they included: taking dextrose level, nutrition, patient education, prevention and mini-quizzes with prizes. It was a very successful event and hopefully with more awareness about diabetes, the Lebanese population will learn that by leading a healthy lifestyle, diabetes can be prevented.

Unesco MedDiet Event

In light of our ongoing MedDiet project which is funded by the European Union in collaboration with the CCIAB, a final big event was held on the 10th of December in UNESCO. We regrouped around 1200 students coming from 20 different schools, all of them so eager to learn about the MedDiet. Our role as The Diet Center was to provide knowledge and education to the kids in a fun non academic way. We organized activities that were held on stage and some students got the chance to participate with us. We introduced them to the MedDiet pyramid and taught them all about the Mediterranean tray with all the benefits of each food group. We even challenged their senses through a small activity of guessing food items while being blindfolded. Our pictures speak for themselves!

Diet Center @ Naharouka


كيف يمكن التحايل على إغراءات العيد؟

موسم الأعياد هو وقت الفرح والاحتفال. وفترة عيدي الميلاد ورأس السنة تعتبر حساسة جداً حيال الغذاء السليم. كلنا نضعف أمام الاغراءات التي يقدمها عيد الميلاد من مأكولات لذيذة وحلويات شهيّة مثل "البوش" و"الترافيل" وغيرهما. كل ما عليك فعله لكسب 3 كيلوغرامات من الآن وحتى نهاية فترة الأعياد هو تناول 200 سعرة حرارية، أكثر مما تحتاجه في اليوم الواحد: قضمة حلوى من هنا، ملعقة إضافية من المرق هناك، قطعة فطيرة ثانية... الأعياد تشجع الناس عادةً على إلتهام الأطعمة الغنيّة بالدهون ذات السعرات الحرارية العالية، والمنخفضة في المواد الغذائيّة. أضف إلى ذلك، أننا نعاني في هذه الفترة من الكسل، ونفضل أن ننسى ممارسة الرياضة.
هل ترغب في محاربة زيادة الوزن خلال الأعياد؟ طبعاً ترغب، لكنك لا تعرف كيف يمكن تحقيق التوازن بين تناول الأكل الصحي والاستمتاع بهذه الفترة الاحتفاليّة من السنة؟ حسناً، عليك أولاً اتباع مبادىء الأكل الصحي للحدّ من أخطار زيادة الوزن غير المرغوب فيها. وتالياً، الإستعانة بهذه النصائح:
 تناول وجبة خفيفة وصحية:
قبل أن تذهب للاحتفال تناول وجبة خفيفة غنية بالألياف مثل: الفواكه أو قطع قليلة من بسكويت القمح لتساعدك في الحد من شهيّتك وتمنعك من تناول كميات كبيرة من الطعام .
 إحرص على تناول الطعام ببطء:
يحتاج الدماغ إلى 20 دقيقة ليسجل حالتي الامتلاء والشبع. لذا، استمتع بوجبات الطعام الخاصة بك من طريق التلذّذ بنكهة كل قضمة .
 تذكر: معظم الفواكه والخضراوات مخفضة الدهون، وتحتوي على نسبة عالية من الفيتامينات والألياف والمعادن. إبدأ الطعام بتناول كمية كبيرة من السلطة الطازجة مع عصير الليمون والقليل من زيت الزيتون، ولا تنسَ أن تختار الفواكه الطازجة للتحلية.
لا تحرم جسمك من الدسم، لكن تناوله بكميات قليلة:
الاكثار من استهلاك الدهون يؤدي إلى زيادة الوزن. لذا، يجب الحد من استهلاك المواد الغذائية التي تحتوي على الكريمة والطعام المحضّر مع الجبن، كجزء من المكوّنات الرئيسيّة، والأطعمة المقليّة، وكذلك الطعام مع الدهون الواضحة كجلد اللحوم والدواجن.

حدد نوع الحصة وكميتها:
التركيز على جودة وليس كمية المواد الغذائيّة. وتالياً، لا تحتاج إلى حرمان نفسك من الطعام المفضّل لديك. تناول كميات صغيرة منه وتجنّب الانتقال الى النوع الثاني. يمكنك أيضاً محاولة استخدام أطباق صغيرة لتناول الطعام بحيث تبدو ممتلئة بالطعام .

 شرب الكحول والمشروبات المحلاة بكميات قليلة:
كثر من الناس لا يدركون أن استهلاك كميات كبيرة من الكحول أو المشروبات المحلاة، قد يؤدي إلى زيادة الوزن. لذا، قد تحتاج الى الحدّ من تناول هذه المشروبات. اطلب مثلاً المياه العادية أو المعدنية أو الشاي المثلّج و غير المحلى أو المشروبات الغازية الخالية من السكر أو التي تحتوي على كمية قليلة.
تحضير الطعام في موسم الأعياد
سواء كنت تطبخ لمأدبة عيد الميلاد أو رأس السنة لأصدقائك وعائلتك، يمكنك أن تختار هذه الطرق الصحية:
 إستخدم المكوّنات الصحية:
 يمكنك تقليل كمية الدهون والصوديوم لتحضير طبق صحي. لذا، ابحث عن المحتويات المنخفضة / الخالية من الدهون ، أو المنخفضة / الخالية من الملح أو الصوديوم، على الملصقات الغذائيّة. يمكنك الإستعانة مثلاً بحليب قليل أو منخفض الدسم، صلصة الصويا منخفضة الصوديوم .
وتذكر أن تستخدم كميات قليلة من الزيت والملح والسكر في الأطباق .
 إستخدم الحبوب الكاملة:
زيادة نسبة الألياف والمغذيّات في الطبق من طريق استخدام مكوّنات الحبوب الكاملة، مثلاً
(إستبدل الطحين الأبيض بطحين الحبوب الكاملة لتحضير كعك عيد الميلاد، وخبز الحبوب الكاملة عوض الخبز العادي في تحضير خبز "البودينغ").  
إختر أساليب الطبخ الصحية:
إستخدم أساليب الطبخ الصحيّة مثل الغلي، والبخار، والخبز، والتحميص أو الشوي هذه الأساليب تقلل من كمية الدهون في الطبق. على سبيل المثال، يمكنك تحقيق النتيجة نفسها لقلي المقرمش باستخدام طريقة صحيّة أكثر هي الخبز.
إصنع الحلويات الصحية:
كثر من الناس يعانون ضعفاً تجاه الشوكولا، وخصوصاً النساء. وقد أثبتت دراسات عدة أن إدمان بعض النساء على الشوكولا، يكون سببه النقص في الماغنيزيوم. وهذا ما يفسر زيادة تناول الشوكولا قبل الدورة الشهرية. ولكن الشيء الجيد أنه يوجد طرق صحيّة لإشباع الأدمان لديك والبقاء على الطريق الصحيح. تستطيع الحصول على 30غراماً من الشوكولا الأسود المفيد للقلب أو بدلاً منه. لماذا لا تستخدم الفواكه الطازجة كمكوّن أساسي لصنع الحلويات؟ مثلاً: اللبن بالفواكه المثلج، سلطة الفواكه مع اللبن والرمان والتفاح المخبوز.

Cookies خفيفة لعيد الميلاد
  المكوّنات (قطعتان لكلّ شخص تحتوي على 150 وحدة حرارية)
  بسكويت Cookies:
  5 أكواب أو 700 غ من الدقيق العادي.  
  ملعقتا طعام أو 30 غ من مسحوق الزنجبيل المجفف.
  4 ملاعق صغيرة أو 20 غ من القرفة المطحونة.
  ملعقة صغيرة من أكباش القرنفل المطحونة.
  ملعقة صغيرة من جوزة الطيب المسحوق.
  ½ ملعقة صغيرة من "بايكينغ الصودا".
  ملعقة صغيرة من الملح.
  3 ملاعق كبيرة من الزيت.
  كوب أو 100 غ من السكر الأسمر.
  بيضتان مخفوقتان قليلاً.
  علبة أو 400 غ من الحليب المكثّف المحلّى والخالي الدسم.
  للتغليف بالسكر الناعم:
  1 من زلال البيض.
  كوبان أو 320 غ من السكر البودرة (المنخول).
  ملعقة صغيرة من مسحوق"الفانيلا".
  ملعقتا طعام أو 30 مل من الماء الساخن.

طريقة التحضير
  يُحمّى الفرن مسبقاً على حرارة 180 درجة مئويّة وتوضَع الصينيّة في داخله. يُمزج الطحين مع "بيكربونات الصّودا" والملح والبهارات في وعاء كبير.
  في وعاء آخر، يخفق الزيت مع السكر الأسمر إلى أن يصبح المزيج لزجاً.
  يُضاف البيض ويتمّ الاستمرار في المزج لمدّة دقيقة إضافيّة. يُضاف مزيج الطحين إلى الزيت والسكّر على ثلاث مراحل منفصلة وتُخفق المكوّنات إلى أن يُمزج الطحين جيداً. يجب أن تكون عجينة بسكويت كوكيز متماسكة نسبيّاً. تُقسم العجينة إلى قسمين.
  يُغطّى كل منهما بورق بلاستيكيّ ويوضعان في البراد لمدّة ساعتين حتى تصبح قاسية. تمد العجينة على سطح مغطّى جيداً بالطحين.
  تُقطّع العجينة وفقاً للشكل المناسب (نجوم...).

The goal of the appearance of Diet Center in Driven was to pinpoint the importance of Nutrition in the world of Sports; we volunteered to be part of this show that is watched by many, specifically in the 1st episode of its 4th season. We offered the 3 hosts of the show full meals (Salad + Main dish + Juice) and explained why each of them got a specific meal, in the hopes to raise their awareness about sports nutrition and that of their viewers.
