It's really as simple as making the defaults in your environment work for you rather than against you. That can be a challenging task when there is a processed-food and junk-food carnival at every corner, but today I'm going to show you how you can set yourself up for success.
These waivers could do away with the new standards in vast numbers of school districts across the country. Many districts could qualify for a waiver simply by no longer reporting in their school food budget the district contributions that help support the food programs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I'm not a sugar-hating fanatic. In fact, my credentials as a chocoholic and dessert-lover are unimpeachable. But I like to know what I'm eating. Whether it's sugar or anything else, don't try to slip one by me, please.
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.
In 2013, I began giving a seed grant every single day of the year to a social change visionary with a practical plan to make their community and the w...
If you're already carrying excess fat, it will require more physical and mental effort than someone who isn't. You may have to work harder, but don't let that prevent you from getting started.
Haven't you known someone who was very overweight and said they don't eat that much? They may not be lying. They have just damaged their metabolism by yo-yo dieting.
Silly and optimistic as I am, I'm hoping for an end to health claims on foods and supplements. Health claims were introduced in 1994, have been so miserably abused and have become so utterly misleading that it's just time to say goodbye.
