Are you Eating Clean or Eating Correctly? The topic of "eating clean for fat loss" always seems to come up. Yes if you eat clean (and I mean really clean and consistent for a lengthy period of time), fat loss can be a byproduct of your food selection. However this is a really blind approach to achieving long lasting and successful fat loss. I can say first hand, I've fielded COUNTLESS inquiries from people saying "I eat clean but I just can't seem to lose the weight". I want to clarify "eating clean" doesn't mean eating CORRECTLY when it comes to fat loss.

Wellness With Peg
Before I became a health counselor, I thought I had a pretty good handle on my wellness because I exercised regularly and ate pretty well (or so I thought).  Two things I did that greatly improved my wellness are 1) overcame my sugar addiction (sweets and other simple carbs) and 2) eating more greens.  Overall, my energy increased, I trimmed down around the middle, my skin improved, and I don’t c

Healthy eating for children doesn’t have to be confusing, or just plain nasty for kids. Snacks and lunches can be nutritious and delicious for all children with diet restrictions such as food allergies, or religious constraints. Let’s face it most children do not want to eat hummus and celery. If you are fortunate enough to introduce children to this high protein snack and they like it what a great treat.

For those of you still waiting for the right time to start an exercise program, what are you waiting for? Are you waiting until Monday so you can start the week off right? Or maybe you're busy at work, so your waiting until things calm down. Or maybe you're waiting until the beginning of the month so you can start fresh. Or maybe you're waiting for the kids to get out of school. How has that been working for you so far? How long have you been waiting for the right time? How much weight and inches have you lost? How much better do you feel?

Today is May First. It seems like the month of April just flew by. At the end of a month I always find myself reflecting on what has happened over the past month. This month I find myself thinking about costs and benefits. Do you realize that EVERYTHING you do has a cost and benefit? It's true. Think about it... When you have children you have the cost of time and money and the benefit of raising a wonderful child and all the love on the way.

I'm sick. I don't get sick often, but here I am, laying on the couch and wishing that I was feeling better. At least not feeling well gives me a chance to catch up on a few things. I've been reading my fitness magazines and I am watching some specials on Netflicks. I have found two that really peaked my interest. The first is Hungry for change. In it there were experts in diet and nutrition. Of these experts, the two women battled back stage 4 cancer and at least three of the men had lost about 100 pounds each. One of the men lost several hundred pounds.

Many aren’t familiar with the term brown adipose tissue (or brown fat) but recent studies from Harvard Medical School have brought this interest to the mainstream media. Brown fat, once thought only to be located on infants and hibernating animals has now been found on adults. The tissue’s main function is to maintain body temperature and can be activated and seen through PET-CT scans after the individual has been exposed to cool temperatures.
