We would never stop teaching our kids math or science just because it is hard. So why are we consider doing it for nutrition?
Experts agree that since the body uses calories from different nutrients in different ways, the key to successful weight loss is paying attention to more than just the numbers on a box.
But before you start filling your shopping cart with protein-enhanced foods in the hopes that they'll help you get leaner, stronger or fitter, here are five facts to consider.
Hunger is a daily reality for millions of Americans, and has negative consequences for individuals of all ages. However, it is especially harmful for the development and well-being of children. Inadequate nutrition can permanently alter a child's development.
The method behind the madness of digital marketing, and its effect on our psyche, is murky at best. But the extent to which companies will go to learn about who we are and what we might desire is expanding drastically.
Go ahead, eat more meat, butter and cheese. Let me know how it turns out for you. I certainly won't be joining you, despite the current popularity of the proposition.
Some women are blessed with breasts that seem perpetually perky. Others, like me, aren't so lucky. But there are a few things that may have pushed my boobs further south, before their time. I've learned that while I can't control my DNA, some activities do slow down -- or speed up -- the inevitable breast aging process.
From climate change to civil liberties, the world is at a critical point right now with many issues. Global nutrition is no different, and, as such, deserves adequate attention as its reach is vast and implications deep.
Eliminating sugar from your diet can be done. If you do decide to go sugar-free, one of the best ways is to go cold turkey. Cut out sugar completely with these simple steps and you could be craving-free in a week.
During the recent Live Below the Line campaign I opted to eat rice and beans for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Having lived in poor countries in Afr...
Personally, I have long thought that whatever the particular merits of breakfast, hieratic zeal as the main course was in fact a rather dubious way to start the day. So it is that I welcomed a new study that purportedly was about debunking breakfast, but was really about debunking dogma for breakfast.
We all know that what you eat is important, but so is when you eat, especially if you're active. That's why, in this infographic, I'll share what to eat before, during and after exercise.

Forget the silk tie this Father's Day (unless we're talking a Fifty Shades type of celebration!). Instead, start taking care of yourself. But don't stop there. Make it an ongoing priority.
Imagine fleeing a war that is taking place in your country. The further the distance you get from the fighting, the safer you would seem to be. Tragically this is not the case. For another enemy is waiting for you. It is hunger, and dehydration. These are the most relentless of foes. You cannot run from them.
Everyone in fitness is a dedicated athlete and works hard every day to achieve certain goals. My goal is to simply shed light on the stereotype that bodybuilding is only about aesthetics and not about performance. Our competitions are certainly focused on how we present ourselves, but the athletic performance has taken place long beforehand.
I've been around the dieting block a couple of times myself. OK, more than a couple.
