This chocolate mousse is explosive. A total show-stopper.
It's easy to write a trainer off as incompetent based on what you can't see behind the scenes. When January rolls around and it's time to get back to the gym, shirk that mentality and listen to your voice of reason.
The people who have had hostile reactions to my diet -- despite my best attempts to stay under their radar -- are either overeaters or heavy drinkers, or both. Once they fire a shot, I back away. Call me crazy. And while you're at it, color me healthy. And very happy.
You may be running out of time, but you are not out of luck. Drugstores (yes, drugstores) are a goldmine for small, but impactful gifts for everyone on your list.
It sounds basic, but the inference is very meaningful. The most successful people at my gym aren't perfect. They often come dragging in, exuding the "Idontwannabehere" essence. But bloated and bleary-eyed, they proceed in spite of the puff. They show up. They get right back on track.
Celebrity weight loss stories are called out as destructive and anti-feminist. And yet, there's something refreshing -- and, perhaps, even healthy -- about those celebrities who publicly discuss their ups and downs.
This time around, I pay homage to high school yearbooks and take a look back at the year in food and nutrition via superlatives. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you... the class of 2013.
I would like to think that this is the New Year we situate ourselves sensibly among the panoply of creatures who eat as they fundamentally should. But instead, 2013 draws to a close with a whole new crop of iconoclastic dietary diatribe.
In an attempt to indicate that something is not right, the body usually sends a variety of warning signs, which we tend to dismiss faster than a 6 a.m. morning alarm. More often than not, we snooze these alarms with some sort of medication or quick fix, without thinking twice about the root of the problem.
The most significant health reform for people in the immediate term will happen at home, in our families and local communities.
There's a way to celebrate the holidays without spending it in a sugar coma, laying on the floor, struggling to breathe, but still enjoying the food of the season with sense.
This latest study is a nice rebuttal to that Stanford study, and points to the fact that a large part of considering foods real and whole has to do with how those foods are produced.
I suggest that while eating healthful foods may, on first blush, appear to be more expensive, it costs us more dearly if we don't.
Nothing's a time kill like holiday shopping. But that's no reason why you can't fit in exercise. If you don't have time for a run or spin class, lace up your running shoes anyway, and park far from a store entrance. Add a half hour to your shopping excursion and get your walk on.
This year had its remarkable share of senseless diets, bizarre research and odd inventions. Here's what you might've missed.
Far too often I hear of people going overboard with their cheat meal -- which turn into day-long bingers. Stop the madness and take control of your life and do what will make you happy. Think long term satisfaction rather than immediate or short-term satisfaction.
I certainly know that my choice is my own, but the act of eating is social and thus the choices we make have become social topics. What upsets me the most however, is the fact that most people believe eating healthy translates to being uptight and/or mentally sick is preposterous.
All I want for Christmas is for people on Facebook to stop accusing each other of eating "chemicals." Lately, comments like "Sorry, but that muffin...
Unfortunately, the holidays represent a time when most people take a break from their healthy habits. This year, give yourself a gift that will keep o...
Although feeding wildlife has become an increasingly common tourist activity, I suspect that many of you have visited a national park or zoo and read ...
