This post was inspired by social media, the internet, and people I meet everyday just trying to find their way to eating better, weight loss, the secret elixir to the healthy life. Here's a scenario that we all have either seen, been a part of on either the receiving end or the one giving advice. It's the dreaded internet nutriton question. "How do I lose weight"? Might seem like a harmless question, but far too often people who are extremely unqualified to answer like to chime in as naturally they are just trying to help.
Key points from Monday's Eating For A Fit, Healthy Body nutrition seminar to help you shape your path to your health and fitness goals:1. Pick one day of the week and plan healthy meals for the upcoming week. Make a list of items you will need from the grocery store to prepare those meals.2. Go grocery shopping on a full stomach with your list in hand and buy ONLY the items on your list. Remember--you're on a mission, so stick to it! If you don't have healthy foods in the house, you are not going to be tempted by them.
Here’s Part 4 of the “Where Did We Go Wrong” series. I’ve discussed where we went wrong with proteins, carbs, and water. So the only thing left to discuss for this series is fats. First and foremost, YOU SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID TO EAT FAT OR SEARCH FOR FAT-FREE FOODS!!!!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend and I hope you all will enjoy my blog post this week.

It all comes down to food yep, one of the most important element for living a healthy and happy lifestyle and yet people continue to make the same old mistakes every time.
This post was inspired by April fools day. It reminded about how many consumers buy the non sense created in media and advertising, and the people who push products which have no logical basis but to fill their wallets/purses. Yes, I'm talking to the person who has tried any "master cleanse", "detox", some type of quck weight loss scheme that sounds logical at the moment. Lets take a look at why you are probably reading this now. Cause it didn't work and probably looking for an answer why.
In Part 1 of this series I discussed where we went wrong with carbohydrates and in Part 2 I discussed where we went wrong with proteins. It only makes sense that Part 3 would consist of fats, but it’s not.Do you have any idea of what it will discuss then? I could go on and on about where we went wrong, but I’m trying to stay on track with macronutrients.

Last week I discussed in brief detail on where we are going wrong, but that still doesn’t answer where we went wrong.As you know, there is a TON of information out there. If you’re looking for answers, you can simply type something into Google and watch the auto-fill and links all start to pop up. A lot of those links will have different similar, but different information.
As some of you may already know, this month is Nutrition Awareness Month. The name itself says that we should create more awareness towards nutrition. That could go along the lines of just saying mindful eating.In short, you need to be aware of food. You need to start with the basics and that means you need to know food is just energy. Seriously. Food is nothing more than fuel.
We didn’t have it too bad when we were kids. We had cartoons, toys, and milk break. The hardest question we had to decide was, “Chocolate or White?” Well, for me it was anyways, and I almost always went with white milk (because I genuinely liked the taste of white milk, not because I was a weird kid or anything...), which then presented the question, “Skim or 2%.”Yeah, back in the day…
