I am a football fan as much as the next person. College football is my sport and Michigan is my team (Go Blue) But the reality is that all the socializing that goes along with it can be detrimental to your health and waist line. So I don't do it. NFL and College Football are on Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That is over 50% of the week. For many people each game involves a drink or two at home, a sports bar or at the stadium. Alcohol consumption of more than 1 serving, more than 1-2 per week will surely give you a gut, especially if you are drinking beer.

Protein shakes are famous these days. There are green ones, red ones, chocoate one, vegan ones and whey ones. But if you are loading them up with lots of fruit, protein powder, yogurt, oils and everything else, you are probably pretty frustrated and gaining weight. A typical shake has 20-25 grams of protein, which can be 1/3 to 1/2 protein requirement for the day for alot of people. At the end of the day, calories do count. Sorry guys! Most people are taking in too much fat and sugar for in their shakes, more than enough for the entire day. They are meal replacments typically, not snacks.

Ok everybody, we are nearing the end of week #2 of our #makeitorbreak it challenge! The next challenges will start in about 8 days! I gotta say, I have stuck to the make drinking water a habit challenge. Before this challenge, I never felt thirsty, now I do. I actually drink more than I need to on a couple days. I have noticed that the wrinkles that have been coming in are actually going away and my skin overall is much better! I'll take it! As far as breaking the habit of no calories after dinner, I have not been perfect.

Small changes eventually lead to a healthy lifestyle
Even though I have exercised pretty much all my life, I haven't always eaten right. When I was younger, nutrition was something of a mystery to me. All I knew was what I had heard…fat was the devil! So, I avoided fat at all costs. I loaded up on pretzels and every packaged fat free product advertised in the grocery store. It didn’t matter what I ate as long as it didn’t have fat. But what I didn’t know was that I was actually loading up on carbs, calories and sugar that eventually turned to fat.  What?

Sugar: not so sweetThe sour side of processed sugarBy Jami HannaDonuts and ice cream and chocolate, oh my! They taste SO good. One bite is never enough. Unfortunately, over-indulging in sweets causes health problems that may be silently killing us.

FRUIT JUICE VS. WHOLE FRUITWhen most people see the word “fruit”, they think “healthy”. This is true if we are talking about the whole fruit.

For the past two years, I have challenged my friends and clients to exercise every day during the month of December.  Everyone has really enjoyed the challenge, so I decided to create a challenge for each month during 2015.

Beware The Boogeyman!!! He changes over time. Like, when I was a kid the only Boogeyman to be afraid of was the goblins that hide under your bed at night. Well, of course we know there is no such things as goblins hiding under beds (there isn’t right?)

There are no good diets. The word ‘diet’ signifies a beginning and an end.
