    What Exactly Does BMI Measure?

    BMI: three simple letters that can mean so much. BMI stands for Body Mass Index and it’s becoming a universal health screening method.

  3. Breaking Bad Eating Habits

    Breaking Bad Eating Habits

    The key to losing weight, and keeping it off, isn’t some secret potion or magic pill. The way to lose weight is by breaking bad eating habits and in exchange, adopting good ones.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    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.
