10 Secrets for Weight Loss – Your Good Nutrition Checklist

If you’re on one of my Nutrition Plans, you know that I stress the importance of balance. There are so many fad diets out there that claim magic weight loss powers. I’m sure you’ve heard phrases like, “Eat this superfood to get abs,” “Lose 10 lbs in one-week,” “One exercise to melt away the pounds,” etc. This all sounds way too good to be true, and it is! Adding one or even five foods or exercises to your diet will not shed fat alone. Yes, some extreme diet plans may lead you to lose weight initially, but the food restrictions they require are just not realistic for long-term weight loss.

Low-Carb, Crispy Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe

I took a rest day today and I’ve been nothing but restless! R is out of town this weekend and my friends are busy bees themselves, so I found myself without plans for the day. It’s funny how whenever I have a million things to do, from work to play, I dream about having a day to myself with nothing to do. But when it actually comes, it’s nice for the first couple of hours and then, boom, the boredom hits. A workout would’ve been a great fix for my boredom, but it’s my rest day so I sucked it up and found other ways to entertain myself sans socializing.

Post Workout Meals – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Let’s talk about food, baby. Specifically, what you’re eating (or not eating) after your workout. Getting your butt into the gym or into a class is just half of the equation to fitness.
