Did you know 50% of Americans set themselves a New Year’s Resolution?  My concept is people want to change themselves for the better.  After all, most resolutions are geared towards personal improvements of some sort, which is pretty amazing!  However the flip side of the coin is that 88% of all those who set resolutions from America and around the world fail.  Sadly year after year disappointed minds tally up to about 156 million failed resolutions.   However we can’t beat ourselves up for not meeting the goal.  Did you know there is a science

We've all been there before: dieting and exercising hard for months, dropping 98% of that excess visceral fat, but then... WE GET STUCK?! Impossible! You've been getting 6-8 hours of sleep more often than not, have eaten well a vast majority of the time and continue pushing your threshold in the gym. What gives? Aren't those three things the keys to avoiding a plateau and continual success? The answer: Yes and No.

"I eat HEALTHY."Translation: I am mindful and intentional about what I eat.  I eat well enough to get by.  I eat better than some and better than I used to.  I even eat some fruits and vegetables.  Occasionally, I may have alcohol, processed or "white" foods, and desserts. "I eat first to get my PRIMARY nutrition."

It's easy for skin to become dry, flaky, and sallow during the Winter. Before you go out and spend your paycheck on fancy lotions and creams, try nourishing your skin from the inside out — what we put in our body is just as essential for a healthy glow as what we put on it. Here are seven foods that will leave you glowing all Winter long!

Many people don’t think about beets and if they do it is probably joined with a look of distaste. But if you are a health conscious person then now is the time to broaden your palette. Beets are an extremely nutritious food choice and you can eat the whole plant from the greens to the root. You can buy them fresh, canned, or like I do in the produce section of Whole Foods marinated in Balsamic Vinegar. Beets can be eaten raw, boiled, steamed, roasted, sautéed or juiced.

YOLO is an acronym for "You Only Live Once". It was originally coined over 100 years ago but in recent times it has been used by the younger generations as an excuse for stupid and reckless behavior. The Washington Post and The Huffington Post describe it as the "newest acronym you'll love to hate". YOLO is similar to carpe diem or memento mori, it implies that one should enjoy life, even if that entails taking risks.

I often tell clients that they can have a 2 lbs allowance for the holidays. It forces them to be mindful and it leads to them actually losing weight over the holidays. Also, understand what a second helping actually means calorie wise and you might think twice. Another big no no is mistaking thirst for hunger. Make it a point to push the water intake. And lastly, remember we are relational beings and people are more important than food. Hard to appreciate them if you're in a food coma.
