It occurred to me the other day that there is an inverse relationship between how good a food looks and tastes and how healthy it is for you. The worse it is for you, the harder stores, restaurants and food companies try to make it irresistible. With such a sensory overload, how do we stop overeating?
I am not suggesting we turn back the clock on social networking, even if that were possible. You may land your next job or meet your next great love online. I do want to stress that no online chat or text-speak can take the place of face-to-face interaction and nuanced conversation.
This is an interview with Anneke Sips, a yoga teacher and social psychiatric nurse (RN) from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. For the last 16 years she has...
It was a beautiful Sunday-spring-is-in-the-air afternoon, where I was enjoying a pool side brunch in Los Angeles. As I was mingling with the friends ...
If you are ready to attract the love of your life, then first become all you want the love of your life to be. Then you will be amazed at what happens!
With so much of the news covering what these celebrities eat, drive, and sleep with -- it is important to acknowledge the bigger picture when stories like this monopolize our media.
A recent New York Times headline about sustainability asked this question: "What Does Tomorrow Owe Today?" The article continued in a more provocat...
Many of you have doubtless already seen the commentary in the New York Times by my friend and colleague, Dr. David Ludwig, entitled: "Always Hungry? Here's Why." If you have not read the piece, I commend it to you.
We may not be able to view our world through time-lapse technology like filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg, but we can slow down and tune into our senses while outside in nature. Our five senses are the keys that unlock the door to the now moment- and through that doorway, peace resides.
I guess I only know this. The vendors keep dishing dietary epiphanies in bite-sized, moronic morsels almost every day. We never seem to see the elephant in the room and most of us can't seem to wait to get in line.
I hope that one day a veteran can walk into any VA hospital or health care facility and be given options for any affliction that they're facing without being put on a waiting list. The government needs to help veterans get access to health care that they deserve.
Eating a clean and healthy diet doesn't have to mean walking around with a growling stomach all day. Unfortunately, that's the perception most people have toward low-calorie diets.
I may have to work a little harder to fill my lungs with air, but the effort makes me appreciate every breath I take.
Some of you correctly noted that there really is nothing funny about trauma to the face and head. There was a tangential point to make about our societal idiocy when it comes to quick-fix-weight-loss-by-any-means, and I made it. But then what? What comes after the... "guffaw"?
After spending a year in NYC when I was 29 years old, I found myself a little apprehensive about the the slim cultural experience and inspiration of LA in comparison to the city.
I hope the races we run for cancer aren't just yearly events we participate in. I hope the stories of triumph and defeat do not only receive a response of joy and tears but perhaps action and a change of mindset. I hope we don't become desensitized to cancer.
And while there is nothing wrong with achievement and improvement, it is also very easy to forget to ask yourself the more important questions: Who am I? What do I believe about myself? What do I want my identity to be?
A couple of weeks ago, my sister got hit in the face with a horse, and the pounds have been dropping off ever since. It seemed unfair to keep this revolutionary weight loss breakthrough to ourselves, so I am writing to share it.
What good is a lateral raise if you can't do a proper press? What good is a fancy business logo if you haven't found your first paying customer? What good is a better guitar if you haven't built the habit of practicing each day?
A fitness tribe is what you make of it. It can be infinitely flexible or it can be a bit more formal, with scheduled workouts, eating plans, and a tribe name (let's go, Cardio Queens!). Still, the most successful fitness tribes have four key ingredients.
