Most people this time of year are thinking about buckling down on their diets. What I have found works best is to take it in small steps. Start with changing your eating for just a few days -- with a 3-day juice cleanse -- and it is remarkable what positive transformation will follow.

Desperate, I called my health coach (and mom!), Suzanne, for tips on how to do a quick detox -- a simple way to gently get myself back on track. What follows are Suzanne's basic tips for cleaning up the system and getting ready for summer.
Instead of buying a juicer, I thought I'd try and use my blender to mix fruits and veggies -- like I do my protein shake. Well, I'm glad I did, because not only do I love the way that it tastes, but I'm also experiencing the benefits of the abundance of anti-inflammatory agents found in vegetables.
Holiday season is nearly over and if you've enjoyed yourself, chances are your pants are a little tighter than they were earlier this fall. With dozens of cleanses out there, I conducted a side-by-side comparison of several to start the year on the right foot.

There is no doubt that eating healthy in college and keeping it up is difficult. If a student wants to lose weight in time for spring break in just a few weeks, then a healthy diet and exercise plan is best.
