  2. Waste of Time Weight Loss Methods

    Waste of Time Weight Loss Methods

    In our time starved world the last thing we want to do is waste time trying to lose weight. You put the effort in…you want to see results. Since the dawn of time, at least the dawn of dieting, people have tried practically everything to lose weight from eating only lemons for days on end to purposely swallowing poisons to induce vomiting. Not only are these weight loss methods dangerous, but most are also completely ineffective and a waste of time. While they may cause some initial weight loss, the results are not permanent.

    Don’t waste your time with these!

We hear about eating locally, but what about seasonally? Are there benefits to eating foods in season? Yes. Eating foods that are in season is...

  6. Are Trans Fats Really That Bad?

    Are Trans Fats Really That Bad?

    Knowing what to eat and what to avoid to be healthy can be confusing at best; especially when it comes to fat. For years we were told to avoid eating any fat at all. Then we were told that it’s important we eat some "good" fats, but to stay away from "bad" fats. And no matter what, never, ever eat trans fats...

  7. Quick, Healthy Breakfasts

    Quick, Healthy Breakfasts

    You know that eating a healthy breakfast is important. You've probably heard about all the studies that have shown that eating a nutritious breakfast will help you lose weight. But knowing what you're supposed to do and what you actually do, are two different things, especially when you are short on time. Preparing and eating a quick, healthy breakfast is not always feasible; or so it may seem. It seems inevitable, no matter what time you set your alarm for, your mornings are rushed.

  9. HCG: A Diet Dream or Just Another Scam?

    HCG: A Diet Dream or Just Another Scam?

    Human chorionic gonadotropin or HCG is a hormone that is naturally produced by the body during pregnancy. In a pregnant woman, HCG signals the hypothalamus to mobilize fat stores, which helps the body bring nutrients into the placenta, fueling the fetus with the energy it needs to grow. So how did a pregnancy hormone become synonymous with weight loss? HCG...

    High Fructose Corn Syrup: Why all the Controversy?

    High fructose corn syrup: it's the added sweetener that can be found in everything from soup to juice to muffins to peanut butter. But, for something so sweet, it sure does stir up a lot of sour feelings. You'd be hard pressed to find a food product out there that causes as much controversy as high fructose corn syrup; but why?

  15. Salt, Sodium and our Health

    Salt, Sodium and our Health

    Table salt (which is a combination of sodium and chloride) has been an important part of the human diet for centuries.

  17. Is Your Health Food Really Healthy?

    Is Your Health Food Really Healthy?

    It's ok to admit, we've all done it. We've all fallen victim to poser foods at one point or another. You know those foods we thought were healthy, but it turns out, really aren't. You think you're making a smart choice only to be tripped up by a phony: a candy bar in a protein bar's clothing. So next time your stomach starts grumbling, think before you eat, read all labels and keep...

  18. Magic Weight Loss Foods?

    Magic Weight Loss Foods?

    Magic weight loss foods: foods that - just by the simple act of eating them - result in weight loss. Wouldn't that be incredible? Unfortunately it doesn't work that way. Losing weight isn't magic, it's math. And the math behind losing weight is pretty straightforward: consume fewer calories than you expend; 3,5000 calories per pound to be exact. In other words to lose just one pound of fat a week you'd need to eat 500 fewer calories each day or burn an extra 500 calories a day through exercise (or some combination thereof). Admittedly not all calories are alike. Different...

  20. Diet Sodas: The Truth May Be Hard to Swallow

    Diet Sodas: The Truth May Be Hard to Swallow

    Diet soda may not be a dieter's ally after all. It's common knowledge that regular sodas are not the best beverage choice out there. They are loaded with empty calories and sugar: nearly 10 teaspoonfuls of sugar per 12-ounce can. But what about diet sodas, they have no calories and no sugar; are they ok to drink? Well, despite being a calorie friendly beverage there is mounting evidence that they...
