It’s a fact—carb addiction is real! (Here’s how to break free)

It’s a fact—carb addiction is real! (Here’s how to break free)

  I once worked with someone who absolutely could not say no to starchy carbs and sugars. She always had a box of some kind of chip or cracker in her desk at work. She used to sneak to the little store across the street from the office and buy cookies or candy after lunch. When we would have a birthday celebration for a co-worker, she would take a second piece of cake later in...

I have a secret to tell you

I have a secret to tell you

  I have a little secret to share with you. Today is my birthday, and not only that, this is my LAST birthday in the 50s. Gulp! And while knocking on the door of 60 may sound a little scary on the surface, I honestly feel great! I’m still running every week, doing full-contact karate sparring (fighting men), and enjoying a consistent high level of energy. Plus I recently got mistaken as my daughter’s sister...

Could this be the reason you can’t lose weight?

Could this be the reason you can’t lose weight?

  Here’s an eye-opening statistic--currently, nearly three out of four Americans are overweight or obese.  And those numbers are not going down.

But there’s another sneaky, often-missed factor that can...

What you don’t know about fats can kill you

What you don’t know about fats can kill you

  I once attended a presentation geared toward local business owners and after the speaker’s lecture, they offered coffee, tea and cake for refreshments. As I walked by with my cup of tea, the woman cutting the cake asked if I’d like a piece and I said, “No thank you.” She responded, “Oh, go ahead and have a piece.  It’s healthy.” I’m not often speechless, but this time I was. She must have seen my...

Should you do the keto diet?

Should you do the keto diet?

  As a nutritionist, one of the most common questions I get asked is what I think of a certain diet.  It’s not surprising.  After all, no one diet is 100 percent right for everyone, all the time.  Our biochemial individuality makes us unique in many ways, and what’s good for one person is not necessarily good for another.  Plus your choice of diet largely depends on what you’re aiming to accomplish.  Of course, losing...

Why your weight loss resolution failed AGAIN

Why your weight loss resolution failed AGAIN

  If you are among the 45 percent of Americans (which includes a whopping 86 percent of millennials) that made a New Year’s resolution 43 days ago, chances are excellent at that time that you were envisioning a slimmer version of yourself in the mirror by now. Aaaaand…I would have to guess that hasn’t happened.  Based on current research, most resolutions are ditched by January 12th (that date has even earned the title of “Quitter’s...
