Do you wish you had more control over how fast your body lost weight?
Fast weight loss has as much to do with what you add to your diet as what you cut out.
When it comes to vegetables, the wonderful truth is that the more you add to your daily diet, the more you lose.
Are you ready to put yourself in control of how efficiently your body drops pounds?
I ran into some friends that I hadn’t seen for years, and one of them asked me how I stay so thin.
The answer that popped out of my mouth was, “I eat a lot of vegetables and very little sugar.”

Do you find yourself reaching for food when you feel stressed, lonely, angry or sad even though you’re not hungry?
If so, there is a strong chance emotional eating is sabotaging your weight loss goals.
Women, what do your ovaries have to do with belly fat?
A lot… if your ovaries have cysts.
PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is a hormone disorder characterized by:
- Cysts on the ovaries
- Insulin resistance
- Elevated male hormones
As the most common hormonal problem for women of childbearing years, PCOS sets up a hormonal storm that encourages belly fat weight gain.
Fortunately, an improved diet along with a few lifestyle changes can improve hormonal imbalances associated with PCOS to stop and reverse your growing belly.

- Avoid sugar and processed foods
- Limit your eating occasions during the day to pack in more volume per meal
- Have your plan ready and prepare your meals at the beginning of the week
Misery loves company, so I recruited two family members to join me in eating only 500 calories a day for 5 days.
Monday through Friday, we counted our calories, dug deep into our willpower reserves, and, at least, one of us licked our plates.
I’m a college health teacher and blogger. I tell people not to follow restrictive diets because they backfire.
So, why did I do this?
Maybe I wanted to prove a point. Maybe I was starting to waver in my convictions. Maybe I’m the coolest blogging health teacher ever.
Anyway, here’s our 500 calorie diet results including the blow-by-blow details that left us close to tears by Thursday night, and feeling fantastically slim by Saturday morning with 17 pounds lost in total.
How to Tell if a Snack is Healthy…
You’re at a meeting, and you come face-to-face with a basket full of snacks.
Which snack do you pick if you want to stay healthy and not wreck your diet?
It’s downright confusing.
You find yourself staring at the spread of delicious choices like a deer in the headlights.
- This one has a fancy name – Biscotti – that sounds healthy.
- Oh, there’s some dark chocolate, that’s good for you, right?
- An oatmeal crème pie! I love those! Does the oatmeal make it an okay choice?
Let’s face it, choosing snacks to eat for healthy weight loss can be a muddled mess.
