Diet and Nutrition
When you’re trying to count your calories, it might be tempting to focus on the numbers instead of the nutrients. After all, if losing weight (or maintaining a healthy weight) is just a numbers game, then it shouldn’t matter WHAT you eat, so long as you meet your caloric goals, right? Not quite. Though calories are certainly important, the quality of your food is essential to your overall h
Does food affect your mood? You betcha! And here to prove it is a list of the top good mood foods. Try them out, add them to your diet and let me know what you think. Chocolate: Well this is obvious isn't it? But besides tasty delicious, the caffeine triggers the release of serontins and endorphins in the body.
Time and time again, you might wonder why you don’t lose weight, even though you think you’re doing everything right. While no one wants to hear they’re doing something wrong, even if they didn’t realize it was wrong, you may very well be making some mistakes or you may be hanging onto habits that are making you fat.
Sometimes, you just want to eat something that tastes like something you ‘shouldn’t’ be eating.

Don’t skip breakfast. 2. Eat for your body type. Figure out which way (high protein, 50-50, or more veggies) makes you feel good.
Your mom shares it. Your best friend shares it. Your spouse shares it. Your favorite magazine shares it: diet and weight loss advice. And more likely than not, all the advice they’ve shared has varied greatly from true (eat your veggies) to downright silly (sprinkle this powder on your pizza and the fat “melts” away) and from one person to the next.

In fact many of us preprogram our coffee machines so that we know there is a hot cup of coffee is waiting for us as soon as we stumble into the kitchen.
When it comes to working out, most patrons of exercise do our best to stay as cool as possible. We shell out for the new moisture-wicking fabrics and attire that promises to keep us from overheating. Why, then, has Bikram yoga (which many refer to with a more generalized nomenclature of “hot yoga”) become such a workout craze?
One of the most contagious aspects of working out with Gabby and Laird is watching the engagement with their children. Both Gabby and Laird have this unique ability to make every workout seem like some type of large group game that we are all lucky to be part of, and that approach spills over to their children who almost always want to join in.
