When temptation arises do you start to feel irrational, like you have no mind of your own? When they bring out the appetizer, do you think, “I can eat just a few bites?” When you hear them start to sing Happy Birthday, does your mouth start to water for cake and ice cream? Do you just have to have a pudding cup as you spy your child grabbing one? I know that these times for me really test my strength. It is difficult for me to stay on my diet and live… Continue

I find it helpful and important to keep a journal of the foods I eat to achieve the healthy lifestyle I am living. Mainly, journaling helps me keep in mind what I am eating. It makes me think about what I eat and forces me to make a conscious decision whether or not I should eat a particular food that day. If I am craving cookies, I can work them into my diet… Continue

I won't be here tomorrow or Saturday. I'll be in Indianapolis at the Woman of Faith gathering. I can't wait. I'm going with my best friend and have been looking forward to this for a long time.
I need a break... we all do. America, we are all about the dream, materialism and go go go. Women were created to rest. Do we? Not many of us do... well that is, some of us rest too much and coin our own destiny as couch potatoes and others of us run so much that we are unable to slow down for… Continue

More than enough time has passed since I promised to be back with the rest of the rest story on REM...

As I sit on my balcony gazing out at the evening sky I am in awe of the beautiful pastel colors that intermix with the wispy clouds as the sun sets. The varying shades of blue, pink, red, and yellow intensify just before the sky turns a deep blue and settles into the dark black of night. It has been another day of hustle and bustle and I enjoy the quiet time as I relax from a long day. My mind begins to wander as I enjoy the mild summer we have… Continue

Vegetarian or 'plant-based' diets can be a very healthy eating style. By not eating meat, you automatically consume less cholesterol and saturated fat. All the other rules still apply, however, of practicing variety, balance and moderation.
Start your day with breakfast.
Breakfast fills your "empty tank" to get you going after a long night without food. And it can help you do better in school. Easy to prepare breakfasts include… Continue

Not too long ago I posted on weight loss supplements
and the fraudulent (and potentially dangerous) claims being made. I came across more information I’d like to share with you.
The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) analyzed over 50 dietary supplements and found approximately half contained the caffeine equivalent of 2 cups of coffee. Dietary supplements are not required to list caffeine content unless pure caffeine… Continue

When it's time to lose weight, many of us are trained to think "cut back on fat". In a previous post - What's the right amount of fat?

There is a general perception that snacking is bad and you need to cut out snacking if you want to lose weight. Well, the opposite is actually true.
It is important to eat regularly, every 3-4 hours to maintain your metabolic rate, promote stable blood sugar levels, and prevent insulin spikes. By maintaining a high metabolism you boost the calories you burn throughout the day, which helps you lose weight. By maintaining stable blood sugar levels and preventing insulin spikes you will… Continue

Have you ever been frustrated by not losing weight even when you feel like you've done everything possible to cut down on calories?
So is less really best when it comes to how many calories we eat? One might think that reducing calories is the most direct way to manage weight. However, this can backfire, especially with eating less than 1200 calories per day (or higher in some individuals). When one cuts their calories down too low the body's metabolism (the rate at which we burn… Continue

What makes you fat?
Simply put we eat more calories than we burn off in a day’s time. Take for instances a person that drives a truck for a living and has to unload and load all day long. Now even though they may not get to the gym daily the amount of energy they are burning is probably off setting what they are eating, unless they are eating a slab of ribs at every stop lol.
Now take a person that sits all day at their job in a call center, talking to people all day long.… Continue
