So, since I got you attention with that silly title, just want to let you know there are no such things as superfoods. Sorry to upset you about that. There are foods that we know that are good for us though. Veggies anyone? Also, this post is about what the media relays as "research" and then there is research and totality of evidence. So, don't fall for the latest and greatest media article on "superfoods" or this food will cure your weight loss woes. How to help yourself understand nutrtion better? Here are some tips
We've all seen the advertisements. Workouts focusing on how many calories you "burn" within a given time frame. After all, it's what most of us want to know right?

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. Today I want to address the major issue that I'm still coming across as a personal trainer and lifestyle coach. 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.
