    Meal Planning: Losing Weight and Keeping it Off!

    Consider all the places you eat: home, restaurants, at friends’ houses, maybe even your car? Opportunities to thwart healthy eating are everywhere! But if you take the time to plan ahead you’ll be better able to handle the situation and won’t succumb to last minute temptations or just the (perceived) exhaustion of planning out a meal. Meal planning may seem like a daunting task but consider the benefits...

  3. Fiber: Effective Weight Loss Weapon

    Fiber: Effective Weight Loss Weapon

    We can't digest it, and it passes through our system without adding any nutritional benefits, but we still need it! We're talking fiber. Fiber is one of the most effective weight loss weapons out there. And chances are, you’re probably not getting enough.

  4. Portion Control

    Portion Control

    Portion sizes have become huge! Over the last couple of decades the portion sizes of everything from pasta to hamburgers to bagels have doubled (sometimes tripled!) in size. And countless studies have shown that the bigger the portion size, the more we tend eat. We need to stop. The problem: We can’t control our portions if we don’t know what a proper portion size is.

  5. Put a Stop to Halloween Candy Diet Disasters!

    Put a Stop to Halloween Candy Diet Disasters!

    You knew it was coming. It starts with the pumpkins, some hay bales, and then before you know it…it’s everywhere. Candy. Giant bags of candy everywhere you turn. And it’s all at irresistible prices. I mean, who can pass up a 5-pound bag of candy corn for only $1.50? The allure is overpowering. It’s almost Halloween and Halloween Candy is upon us, and that’s just plain scary when it comes to our diet. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This year you can...

  6. Hunger vs. Craving

    Hunger vs. Craving

    Ooh imagine it...hot, salty French Fries or what about warm, gooey chocolate brownies, just out of the oven…are you suddenly hungry? Or are you just craving them now? Can you tell the difference?

    We often confuse these terms -- hunger and craving -- but there really is a big difference between the two. And, before you can get your weight under control (and keep it there) you need to understand the difference between them, how to identify when you’re experiencing one or another, and manage your responses accordingly.

    Fall in love with Fall!

    Fall is such a fantastic time of the year. Sure, summer’s gone and with it’s abundance of fresh fruit, summer vacations and long, warm days. But just because it gets dark earlier and the temperatures are starting to drop, that’s no reason to hibernate. There are so many wonderful things about this time of year, you won’t be able to help but fall in love with Fall!

  9. 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!

  12. Benefits of Eating Foods in Season

    Benefits of Eating Foods in Season

    It used to be you could only get cherries in summer or parsley in the spring. But in today’s world of global commerce, eating almost anything, at almost any time of the year is commonplace, but is that a good thing? Should we try to eat foods that are in season more often?

  13. 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...

  14. 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. Well, maybe not always but definitely...

  16. 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? What is High Fructose Corn Syrup? Before we can understand the controversy...

That's the idea behind the Shop to Lose: Weight, etc. mobile app. Their motto is "we eat what we buy." So the idea behind the app was to help make buying healthy food easy...
