The Fastest Way to Drop 5 Pounds

I get that for most people being 100% grain-free isn’t the lifestyle they want long-term, but it’s totally worth it if it gets you looking fabulous in that wedding dress, bikini, business suit or on the surf board. This isn’t great long-term because we’re not talking at all about balanced nutrition or healthy calories or any of that – this is just a quick fix for that time when 5 pounds REALLY matters.

The Biggest Loser – Why Can’t I Lose Weight This Fast?

I know, we all love to see TV shows where people go from morbid obesity to a relatively normal weight, losing the weight of several people within a year. It gives hope that you can probably shed that extra 15 lbs in a week. Two at most, right? If those people on the television can lose 300 pounds in a year then surely 15 lbs in a week is reasonable. Except that in real life it doesn’t happen.

For all of you who don’t like your vegetables, here are some great ways to sneak them into other foods so that you don’t know they’re there.

Emotional Eating

Wow is this ever a big deal! So many people use food as a reward, as a treat, or as a way to calm themselves when they’re anxious, depressed or angry. It’s easy to do because a lot of the time it works – food does help you feel better in the moment when you’re emotions are getting the best of you. It also hurts you in the long-run because then you have to struggle with weight, self-image issues and body issues. This is a no-win cycle, but there are ways out. Continue reading

New Years Resolutions for Health

I love this time of year. Everyone starts thinking about how their life is going, what is working, what they want to change. It’s a great time for growth, self-reflection, change and renewal.

So for 2011, lets set resolutions that we can actually keep (I’m including myself in this!) Continue reading
