LUNCH Hungry already? When eating today, put your fork down between bites and thoroughly chew your food. It is a effortless way to cut calories and also to enjoy your food more. No fork food for lunch? Put that sandwich down between bites for the same effect.

How much healthier is "healthy fast food"? My interest was sparked again this week with a new McDonald's commercial for the Egg White McMuffin.  Egg whites have become the trend recently as a healthier food.  The truth is, eggs are not unhealthy unless you eat a dozen a day, or you're trying to control cholesterol.

 You know you need between 6-8 hrs. of quality sleep each night to help your recovery from your awesome training session today. Here are some foods that will help you get there. 1.Almonds: A handful contains muscle-relaxing magnesium and sleep-inducing tryptophan, which increases the brain's level of feel-good serotonin. 2.Skim milk: Mom was right -- a warm glassful will help you sleep better. The milk's tryptophan has a sedating effect.

MYTH BUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Remember all that advice you received(maybe even some from me) that told you to eat your carbs during the day rather than at night to avoid weight gain. Bogus According to researchers who compared people who ate their carbs in the morning with those who ate them at night, the nighttime carb muncher's lost more body fat and experienced less hunger overall. Food for thought.

 There are so many topics I want to cover regarding a vegan diet, among other things, and I hope to answer many of your questions.  One of the questions I got was regarding vitamin B12, and I hope to provide a decent summary here.  It is somewhat technical but I tried to provide some translation for my non medical/research readers.  Of course this is by no means an exhaustively researched paper and there’s much more to know.  My references are included for those of you who would like to read more in depth about this topic.

 3-4 hour period after your workout is generally the best time to indulge in the lion's share of your daily carbs. Quick digesting carbs like fruit for example That's because for several hours after intense training, your insulin sensitivity is elevated. That means you'll store more energy in vital metabolic muscle instead of in your fat cells. Keep that in mind.

 1. Put your fork down when you chew. Or take a sip of water between each bite—eating slowly can boost levels of two hormones that make you feel fuller. You also will not be tempted to eat to fast and you will enjoy every bite. 2. Training before lunch or dinner.
