They believe that personal health is an evolutionary, creative process that we must be engaged in at all times to create our best health and life through balance.
I had high hopes for January. With all the excitement around Commitment Day and New Year’s Resolutions, I was ready to tackle some new goals — and lose more weight to get closer to my goal range (depending on much muscle I put on/retain, that’s another 36 to 46 pounds to lose). It’s definitely doable,… Read more »
I love the energy this time of year. So many people are reflecting on their past accomplishments and reevaluating where they go next. Maybe you call them resolutions, maybe you call them goals (Sarah Kay Hoffman at The Gutsy Girl suggests setting your intentions for this year). I’m a big fan of goal-setting, so I… Read more »
Whether you’re just looking for improved natural fat loss, energy, health, fitness, or performance, you should be employing MCTs into your nutrition as a fat source.

If you’ve ever gone on a diet and succeeded in achieving your weight loss goals, then I am willing to bet you can relate to what I am about to say. Maybe you can even guess what I am going to say because you’ve experienced one or even all three of these for yourself. You’d… Read more »
Diet or no diet? That is the (really big) question. There are two schools of thought on this topic. On one side, you’ve got those that believe that to have self-love means that you should eat whatever you want without regard to your health or overall well being, and just accept your body exactly as… Read more »
Between my love of television and my desire to makeover my body, The Biggest Loser has always felt like the perfect combo for my leisure time. Of course, I’ve always been clear about how they are able to lose so much weight so quickly, but it’s something to keep in mind. It’s very easy to… Read more »
Sometimes I feel like Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite. “Oh man, I wish I could go back in time. I’d take state.” For me, I’d take my old weight. A svelte 129 pounds. But that was seven years ago. And even though I was slim, I wasn’t necessarily healthy. The road I took to get… Read more »
Last year’s Thanksgiving meal was a turning point in my holiday-food consumption. Historically, I’d use the holidays as an excuse to eat anything and everything in sight. Thanksgiving, in particular, was about how much food I could get onto one plate and how many times I could return to the buffet. And I wasn’t going… Read more »
