This week has been very busy… but after watching a video on YouTube that brought back memories about how major food companies use Cochineal beetles to dye many major food items, so I just had to post this blog to help raise more awareness about this ongoing problem.
The holiday season has started! So what does this mean? It means we all have a lot of extra things to get done, and more things to go do such as parties and holiday gatherings. These gatherings inadvertently mean a lot more food, alcohol, dessert, and more. It is also the time of year where we see family we haven’t in a long time, meet spouses of bosses and coworkers, and hopefully do it all with continuing to maintain our health, while feeling and looking amazing.
Can you exercise on a regular basis and not be healthy? Can you fill your body with healthy foods and still not be healthy? The answer to both questions is, yes! If you are exercising and still fueling your body with empty calories then you are like a hamster running on a wheel. Its little legs are going and going but he isn’t getting anywhere and neither are you. The same goes for exercise. If you are feeding your body nutritious foods but you aren’t strengthening your muscles your body will not function to the best of its ability.
Today I will be discussing a pretty hot topic, I don’t know if you saw a few days ago on the news or online, a Dr Aseem Malhotra published an article in The British medical journal that begins questioning the myth that saturated fat is the cause of heart disease.
According to Dr Malhotra food containing saturated fats is being overstated and demonized by the current food guidelines that we are provided.
I wanted to share this link because it shares the reality of the foods that are on the shelves and how powerfully addictive they can be. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/10/30/oreos-fructose-consumption.aspxThanks for reading,Live Good,Mac DoddsLive Good Fitness

Hey everybody! All of you know that I am a preacher when it comes to clean, healthy eating. My question to all of you is: how much thought do you put into what you eat? Really, think about it.
Fall is my favorite season, but the change in weather and daylight can throw your health and fitness routine out the window. Don't let the cooler season get the best of you. Lazy days of Summer are behind us and the busy hustle and bustle of Fall is here! Between work, the holidays, grocery shopping, errands, etc., it's easy to push exercise to the bottom of the list. It should be just as much a priority as any other appointment you have. Put exercise on the calendar!
Here's what I know about Labels on our food, they are deceiving, they tell you half-truths, and if you can't read more than half of the label, don't eat it! Some labels have now put their "better" or "whole" ingredients in bold letters. Why? Because companies know that you are looking for certain things and when letters are in bold they stand out more and your eyes naturally skip over anything that is NOT bold. So, you miss all the "bad" things.
It’s Sunday morning, and typically on Sundays I do all my grocery shopping for the week and plan my meals out. That way I can stay focused on my fitness goals and save a little money as well. During my grocery shopping adventure I couldn’t help but notice all the people that were walking up and down the aisles trying to figure out what healthy foods to buy while attempting to read the nutrition facts some of which I still have a hard time reading.
