  • Too Much of a Good Thing?

    If you’re craving an afternoon snack and you’re more likely to choose an apple and a handful of almonds over a candy bar, you’re making great progress on your journey toward a more healthy lifestyle. But just because you’re making more nutritious food choices doesn’t mean you’ll lose weight. Too much of a good thing is still too much. Losing weight ultimately comes down to a simple formula: calories eaten are less than calories burned. Whether you’re eating 2500 calories worth of junk food or 2500 calories worth of fruit, vegetables, whole…

It also takes a “Whatever It Takes” attitude. What does this include? This includes being consistent with your weight loss actions. It means being persistent and determined to make it happen.

  • Pesticide DDT linked to slow metabolism, obesity and diabetes, mouse study finds

    30 Jul 2014 | 12:17 pm

    People who have the most common genetic mutation linked to obesity respond differently to pictures of appetizing foods than overweight or obese people who do not have the genetic mutation, according to a new study. More than one-third of adults are obese. Obesity typically results from a combination of eating too much, getting too little physical activity and genetics.

    A diet rich in soy may help feminine hearts, but timing matters, finds a new study.

The healthy habits they start then will carry them through the years to come," says one expert.

    Middle-aged adults with a history of problem drinking are more than twice as likely to suffer from severe memory impairment in later life, research shows. The study highlights the hitherto largely unknown link between harmful patterns of alcohol consumption and problems with memory later in life -- problems which may place people at a high risk of developing dementia.

    The encouragement to eat everything on your dinner (or breakfast or lunch) plate comes in many forms. “Don’t be wasteful.” “Make a happy plate!” “Finish your food or you’ll get no dessert.” Or, my personal least favorite, “There’s starving children in _____ that would love to have that food.” No matter how you phrase it, [...]

  • feeling discouraged

    1 Aug 2014 | 7:26 am
    I went for my fourth week weigh in and only down 1 lb. Yes, it was a loss but in getting 800-900 calories a day, I thought I'd be seeing a larger loss especially over a period of two weeks. (Last week I only lost .2 lbs). The first week, I lost 7 lbs and the second week 5 lbs. I thought it would continue along these lines. Is this a plateau or do I need to do something different? My coach tells me to start adding in some cardio. I'm kind of afraid because sometimes this makes me lightheaded and since I have suffered from hypoglycemia before, I don't want to end up passing out. Maybe I need to…

    1 Aug 2014 | 6:08 am
    I have been prescribed zoloft and will be starting it in 5 days. I was on paxil for 4 months and went from 161 to 176. So I am in the process of tapering off from paxil and will start the zoloft in 5 days. However I am so worried that the zoloft will cause weight gain as well. I have read on the internet that weight gain is a possible side effect. I was hoping to hear from anyone else who is taking zoloft and know whether you lost or gained, and what you are experiencing while taking the zoloft? I must add that I gained weight on paxil because it made me extremely hungry so I just kept eating…

    8 Jul 2014 | 11:24 am
    This seems to be the new catch-phrase in my life lately. As much as I wanted it to be the answer, the Whole 30 didn't last long for me. I tried to even ease out of it into a Paleo-style way of eating. That hasn't seemed to work, either. I think it's the restriction. When I start restricting my mind goes crazy. Like a switch goes off and I have an insatiable urge for everything I'm supposed to

It hasn't been EASY, but it does seem like making good choices hasn't been such a huge struggle. What has changed? Well, first, I think it has to do with making a decision to STOP restricting. Instead of deciding what I CAN'T eat, I am concentrating on what I can eat. I am

    Today is a good day. I woke up this morning and decided to weigh-in... Yesterday was my 38th birthday, and today is my first "official" day of summer vacation, so I wanted a start weight. Last week on Wednesday (the last day of school), after weeks of bad eating and out of control food behavior, I was horrified to weigh and see 270 on the scale. What. The. Hell.

    29 Jul 2014 | 11:36 am
    Just thought I'd share the simplicity of my meals on the Autoimmune Protocol. You can't get a lot easier than this. You can make complicated recipes if you like, and I will do that on occasion, but there is a simple rhythm to my meals these days: protein, produce, fat. I pictured some of these meals in a previous post, including breakfasts like homemade breakfast sausage patties with acorn squash and apricots, or steamed butternut squash and apples topped with cinnamon, coconut milk, and toasted coconut. I often have *bacon* for breakfast too! That is probably my saving grace on this very…
  • My Weight, and the Whole 30 compared to the Autoimmune Protocol Diet (Shades of Paleo)

    28 Jul 2014 | 12:56 pm
    I haven't talked much about my weight since I came back from my hiatus. Rather than obsessing about weight, I've been trying *very* hard to stay focused on sticking to the autoimmune diet/elimination plan 100%, which isn't as easy as it sounds, at least at first. I remember a couple years ago when the "in" thing was for bloggers to do the Whole 30... remember that? I guess it is still kind of popular, as it is a type of strict Paleo, and seems to help people get off their junk. So many readers suggested that I do a Whole 30 and while I sort of considered it once or twice, my primary thought…

If you don't remember, here's a post: Fairtime Again. I linked to my old 2007 and 2008 fair-eating posts in that post... and reading them all makes me incredibly sad. Sad that I am here again, sad that I was in such a bad state at one point, sad that I got better and worked through it and succeeded in changing myself so much... but mostly sad that I am fat again, and creeping towards that "got to eat it…
  • AIP Travelling

    Today I was on the road most of the day. I left after 11 am and got home around 8 pm. The past few times I've done this, I have just stopped along the way for food: first, an iced decaf Americano with sugar free chocolate syrup and cream. Then lunch might be a chef salad with turkey, ham, egg, cheese, and Ranch dressing on the side. In the afternoon I'd have a pack of almonds and another Americano to tide me over for dinner, which would be the usual lower-carb meat and veggies (baked chicken and broccoli, or steak and mixed steamed veggies). Being on AIP, a lot of the things I used to enjoy…
  • A Tough Day on AIP

    22 Jul 2014 | 9:57 pm
    Today was a tough day on the Autoimmune Protocol. Funny how yesterday was my best day yet... I had energy, was happy, and felt 'normal' for the first time in ages. Yesterday I biked 25 minutes, lifted weights for 35 minutes, swam for an hour straight, and walked a mile and a half, and I still felt great. I slept very well last night but today was not like yesterday. I had a headache, felt blah and tired, and had brain fog. I have been 100% on AIP all week, including today, but I really struggled this afternoon. At one point I felt like I HAD TO HAVE some coffee or some chocolate. I was…

  • Fit Bottomed Tour: Vail, Colorado in Summer

    Some vacation destinations are thought of as strictly winter or strictly summer, but as I discovered during my trip to Vail in June, those beliefs aren’t always accurate. I mean, for a ski destination known the world over, the city offers some astoundingly fab activities in the summer months (and because it’s not their busiest season, lots of places offer lower rates and prices — score!). Let me put it this way: I don’t ski, and I’m still making plans to go back next summer because I couldn’t fit all the awesome things I wanted to do into the three full…

    This crumbling beauty is Tarlair Swimming Pool in Macduff, Aberdeenshire. It was built in the 1930s in Art Deco style and is one of only three surviving outdoor seaside pools in Scotland. The pool’s outer wall was designed to be fractionally below high-tide level, so the waves could roll in over the edge, refilling it with clean sea water twice a day. In its heyday it was the place to be, but it closed in 1996 after the impact of indoor heated pools and cheap overseas holidays took hold. The pool then fell into decay. At once point there was a proposal to turn it into a lobster…

They don’t seem to care if you’re alive or dead, as long as they’re being fed. But then the black and white fluffball above moved in to the little house on our left. It immediately started a turf war with the evil green-eyed cat that lives to our right. The battle ground? Our tiny back yard.

    If there is a lesson I learn over and over again it is that nothing is permanent. Nothing stays super awesome, nothing stays super bad, and nothing stays just OK, especially if we choose them not to be. I’ve been wandering in a haze of OKness since finishing a nutrition certification program last year. I’d spent two years training for something I thought I wanted to do, only to find out it wasn’t what I wanted to do.

    If you’re craving an afternoon snack and you’re more likely to choose an apple and a handful of almonds over a candy bar, you’re making great progress on your journey toward a more healthy lifestyle. But just because you’re making more nutritious food choices doesn’t mean you’ll lose weight. Too much of a good thing is still too much. Losing weight ultimately comes down to a simple formula: calories eaten are less than calories burned.

Now there’s research that having a dog could help you get fit and improve your overall health. A recent study presented at this year’s annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine suggested that people who walked a dog on a regular basis sat less during the day, had a lower body mass index (BMI), smoked less, had fewer chronic illnesses, and were less depressed.

If slimming down and becoming healthier are two goals at the top of your priority list, here are four must dos to make part of your weeknight routine.
  • Go Inside the CrossFit Diet

    31 Jul 2014 | 5:20 pm
    As a CrossFit newbie, I didn't know what to expect when I attended the 2014 CrossFit Games (as a guest of Reebok), but I knew I'd learn a thing or two about the muscle-building workout movement. While I did learn a lot from watching "the fittest on Earth" battle it out on the field, one thing was clear - those muscles are as much made in the CrossFit box as they are in the kitchen. Want to know what it takes to fuel a body that's ready for all those intense WODs? Here's a primer on what many CrossFit pros eat. Source: Thinkstock

  • More Staggering New Statistics, This Time Regarding Kids' Food

    31 Jul 2014 | 2:30 am
    A recent study out of PLoS One aimed to quantify the percentage of calories coming from various sources in kids' diets. And while no doubt dietary recall sucks, the authors looked at calories from, "grocery stores, fast food restaurants, full-service restaurants, school cafeterias, and "other". The “other” category included foods or beverages from someone else or as a gift, child-care centers, sports/recreational facilities, and vending machines"The results are awful. According to the paper, 35%, or just over every third calorie consumed by an average American kid between the ages of…
  • If True, This New Soda Stat is Staggering

    30 Jul 2014 | 2:30 am
    Wow. According to this new Gallup poll, nearly 2/3 of Americans aren't drinking any soda whatsoever. Yet according to the soda industry itself, the average American is getting nearly 7% of their total daily calories from soda. But if 2/3 of Americans don't drink any soda, and if the per capita soda industry reported 7% average is correct, that would suggest that actual soda drinkers are consuming truly insane amounts of the stuff as the 7% average is per capita - which includes in it the 2/3s of Americans who don't drink any of the stuff! Consequently it may well be that among actual soda…

  • Eating Multiple Mini-Breakfasts: No Weight Loss Benefit

    30 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    You might have read on the internet that eating small amounts of food throughout the morning can “rev up” your metabolism, increase the calories you burn, and help you lose weight, more effectively than than eating one breakfast. Unfortunately, well-controlled studies have been done on this issue and do not show that eating more often promotes weight loss. If you cut your calorie consumption to the same total, the amount of weight you’ll lose does not seem to change based on whether you eat those calories all at once or spread throughout the morning in several…

    Preparting for a Doubly Labeled Water Test – (CC BY-NC 2.0) Michael Wyszomierski I’ve written in the past about how important it is to do the calorie math to control our weight, calories available versus calories used. Calorie availability refers to intake, uptake and distribution of calories, i.e., eating, and calorie use to activity level and the burning of calories. This way, you’re able to account for factors such as metabolic rate, the influence of disease, hormonal levels, drug usage, and the intensity and timing of exercise activity.

I decided to give it a try because I liked what I saw on the ingredient list. The ingredients were very clean and natural, containing many superfoods, such as, acai berry, spinach, kale, broccoli and shitake mushrooms to name a few. Plus his health drink contained no preservatives, artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, dairy, soy or gluten and was filled with mainly organic ingredients.

    As a guy who has moved around a lot, one of the things I’ve had to continuously adjust is my food intake and diet. In the past 10 years I’ve moved from Canada to St. Kitts to Austin, Texas to Canada to Barbados to Belize to Austin to Grenada. Yeah, I get around. But one thing that might not be immediately apparent is the change in food availability and how it has affected my life. A 3lb monster veggie burger is not part of my daily diet. But it was a fun promotion with Big Daddy’s in Austin, Texas. I eat a very regular diet and I’m overly conscious of what foods and…

It’s not that I wasn’t excited to get a book deal (those who know me well know this is a process I started back in 2000), I just knew–unlike my beloved fiction writing–getting a “deal” was merely a permission slip to do work. You see, in the world of non-fiction, an agent submits a book proposal to a publishing house and the house decides whether they want to purchase or not. As a result, it is *exciting* when you receive a “we…

  • Why is Auto Insurance So Expensive in Ontario?

    Tim Currie
    16 Jul 2014 | 9:05 am
    There are really two main reasons why auto insurance is so expensive in Ontario as compared to the other provinces in Canada. First, Ontario has the highest density of drivers in Canada. The higher density of drivers means the more likelihood of an automobile accident or injury claim. For example, there is a greater chance of an auto accident in Toronto, than there is in Winnipeg. This possibility and greater likelihood you may have an accident in Ontario, drives higher collision premiums. Big city environments also have a higher claims ratio for theft related losses. People are not as…
  • Be the First to Lower Your Car Insurance with Telematics Usage Based Insurance

    Usage Based Insurance or Telematics is the method for Ontario drivers to help lower their car insurance premiums. Why not be one of the first drivers to give it a try? You are a good driver. You have no tickets, no accidents and no problems. So why is your car insurance so expensive and why is it similar to those you know are not as good driver as you? How Are Premiums Normally Calculated? Currently, the rates are driven by driving history and averages based on age, gender, distance you drive, type of vehicle you drive and how you use your vehicle.

  • Tips for Safe Summer Driving

    6 Jun 2014 | 7:04 am
    With snow long gone and summer in full swing it is important to remember to share the road and leave extra room for motorcycles and bicycles. Due to their size, these vehicles can easily be lost in a blind spot or remain unseen in low visibility conditions. These riders are inherently more exposed to danger on the road. Regardless of who is at fault, the rider will end up with the bigger injuries in a collision with a heavier, more protected vehicle. There are a few simple steps motorcyclists and car drivers can follow to reduce the risk of collision. Drivers Need to Share and Be Aware As a…

    4 Jun 2014 | 2:46 pm
    You may have been hearing a lot lately about usage- based auto insurance and telematics. So what is it? Telematics is the technology that combines telecommunications, your vehicle and the driver. A communication device is simply installed into your vehicle and it sends out pre-determined information about your driving habits. At this time, the small “black box” is installed in the diagnostic port of your vehicle. The unit is a little bigger than a pack of matches. The installed device or black box sends information to a centralized collection company and the information is analyzed, which…

    Canadian citizens who own or plan to own property in the U.S. are about to find themselves under new IRS regulations under the FACTA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, 2010.) The U.S. and Canadian governments have come to an agreement in order to help stem tax evaders. As part of this reciprocal agreement, Canadian bank information is soon to be shared with the CRA who will in turn share it with our southern neighbours. Talking with a tax accountant is a good idea if you plan on buying foreign property. As well, talking with a Canadian home insurance specialist can help to explain this…

The following items are things that I’ve decided I’d love to get for my new place. Some of them are literally sitting in my Amazon shopping cart waiting for a purchase once I’m moved in.

I did a few 5ks and really loved them all (recaps: Forrest Spence 5k, Camp Good Grief 5k, and MRC Recovery Run 5k). I also signed up for the St. Jude half marathon but did not get to participate as it was called off the night before the race. After the St. Jude race was called off I pretty much stopped running.

I’ll not leave thee, thou lone one! To pine on the stem; Since the lovely are sleeping, Go, sleep thou with them. Thus kindly I scatter, Thy leaves o’er the bed, Where thy mates of the garden Lie scentless and dead. So soon may I follow, When friendships decay, And from Love’s shining circle The gems drop away.

    Cammy Chapel
    2 Jul 2014 | 8:05 pm
    Big holiday weekend coming up in the US, and boy am I glad. This week is kicking my butt! With so much going on, I can’t get my mind around any serious topics. Or even semi-serious ones, for that matter. What better time for a little Q&A? Your responses are always so much fun to read, and I find myself in need of some FUN! Red, white, or blue–which is your favorite color? What’s your favorite dish to take to a summer barbecue? (My asking and the pending neighborhood July 4th picnic are purely coincidental.) What is the farthest you have been from home? Will you be…

  • Water 101: What You Need to Know About Your Water

    30 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    Did you get a chance to see this week’s edition of Mamavation TV? It was an eye opening look at water with the CEO of EWS Water, Howard Esbin. You could tell from how he spoke about the issue, that this is his passion. Know What’s in Your H20 With up to 80,000 possible chemicals in our water, it can be a bit overwhelming. Some of the main contaminants to be cautious of are: Bacteria Disinfectants of the Water (chlorine, ammonia) Human Activity (chemicals washed down the drain) Pharmaceuticals (disposed of down the drain) Herbicides and Pesticides Pollutants (such as solvents,…

    Before you know it, the next presidential election will be upon us, and it looks like at least one of the contenders in this one may be a woman. At present, Hillary Clinton is the frontrunner for the Democratic Presidential candidate in 2016 and already is mounting support for her run. But before you go championing Clinton as a candidate, you should know her position on a key issue in the news today. Mrs. Clinton supports the widespread use of GMO’s.

  • Water Filtration and Misconceptions

    25 Jul 2014 | 8:07 am
    Mamavation spends a lot of time talking about the safety of what goes into our bodies and onto our skin. However, what often gets overlooked is something that we probably come in contact with more than food or personal care products, water. There are an estimated 80,000 contaminants in our drinking water, yet only 91 of these are regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act. Yikes! (via EWS Water FAQs) With so many impurities unregulated, water can be an overwhelming topic. That’s why this Monday on Mamavation TV, we have a called in an expert of the topic of water, Howard Esbin of EWS…
  • Toxic Tap Water: Top 7 Reasons To Get A Home Water Filtration System

    Gina Badalaty
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:12 pm
    The water that comes from your tap should be a life-giving substance but all too often, it is treated with processes, exposed to chemicals, and may actually do more harm than good. Earlier this year, the residents of Charleston, West Virginia, discovered just how toxic water can be when a chemical spill from a nearby plant shut down the drinking water supply of 300,000 residents. While the water was deemed “safe” by officials shortly after, there was a hotbed of controversy surrounding the issue.  Weeks later, many residents still chose not to use their tap water for drinking.

  • Grilled Mediterranean Chicken and Quinoa Salad

    31 Jul 2014 | 11:55 am
    The is the perfect summer salad! Juicy grilled chicken, garden cucumber and tomatoes, red onion, olives and Feta cheese all tossed with quinoa and lemon juice. It's packed with protein (20 grams!), not to mention tons of wonderful flavor. To make the grilled chicken extra flavorful, I like to marinate it overnight with lemon juice, garlic and fresh herbs like rosemary or oregano. This is great to bring to a potluck, to enjoy as a light meal. You can make the chicken and quinoa ahead if you wish, and mix everything together when you're ready to eat.

  • Naked Salmon Burgers with Sriracha Mayo

    29 Jul 2014 | 9:42 am
    Some burgers are just meant to be eaten without a bun. These salmon burgers are the perfect example. So much flavor in these burgers made with wild salmon, served on a bed of arugula with sliced avocado and a spicy sriracha mayo – a bun would only disguise it.These burgers can be formed earlier in the day, or even the night before. Refrigerating them before cooking helps them hold together firm during cooking. Another tip is to put some of the salmon in the food processor or chopper. It creates "glue" that keeps everything together.Last fall, Calphalon released a new line of…
  • Summer Breakfast Quinoa Bowls

    27 Jul 2014 | 7:03 am
     Of all the ways to eat quinoa, this is my favorite! Served as a warm cereal topped with fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey – it reminds me of eating a bowl of farina as a kid, memories I hold dear and near.I cook the quinoa in almond milk sweetened with just a touch of brown sugar (you can use any sweetener or omit if you wish) and serve it with extra warmed milk on the side. That's just my preference, if you prefer your cereal thicker you can add less milk. Using almond milk makes this a great dairy-free, gluten-free breakfast option for people with allergies.  And for a Fall…

    Grilled steak with sweet balsamic caramelized onions are tossed with baby arugula, gluten-free quinoa, amaranth and brown rice penne pasta (you can use whatever pasta you like) topped with fresh shaved parmesan – I'm a sucker for a good steak salad, and this one is AWESOME! Packed with protein, it's made with lean sirloin, which I cooked on the grill pan, but you can cook it outside on the grill, or in a large skillet. The gluten-free quinoa pasta was from Tru Roots, it cooks al dente and tastes just like regular pasta, I was very impressed! You can also make this with whole wheat…

    20 Jul 2014 | 8:58 am
    This healthy salad is made with cooked lentils and diced fresh diced carrots, celery, bell pepper, onion, parsley and lemon juice – perfect to make ahead for lunch for the week as the flavors only get better overnight. It's also vegan, high in fiber, protein and only about 100 calories per serving.I've LOVE making my chicken and lentil soup, but I was never really a fan of using lentils in a salad (I'm a picky legume eater). But the other day I bought a small lentil salad at my local health food store to try and take to the beach and really enjoyed it, but I paid twelve dollars…

    28 Jul 2014 | 4:17 am
    According to the United States Labor Department, 16.1 percent of millenials, also known as Gen Y (or young adults born between the years 1980 and 2000), are unemployed, while a Harvard study found that only six in 10 millenials have a job. Unemployment is said to be one of the three most stressful events in life, along with death and divorce—perhaps this explains why one study found that millenials are currently the most stressed out generation. The fact is, millenials came of age during one of the worst economic slumps in history. But according to Jason Dorsey, an outspoken millennial and…

  • Fewer strokes for older Americans – experts concerned

    18 Jul 2014 | 8:08 am
    The number of older Americans who suffer strokes and the number of younger Americans who die from strokes is on the decline, but the growing rates of obesity threaten to reverse the trend, experts say. A recent study found a 24 percent overall decline in first-time strokes in each of the last two decades and a 20 percent overall drop per decade in deaths after stroke. The decline in stroke risk was concentrated mainly in the over-65 set, however, with little progress in reducing strokes among younger people. “We can congratulate ourselves that we are doing well, but stroke is still the No.

    A new study in women suggests that experiencing one or more stressful events the day before eating a single high-fat meal can slow the body’s metabolism, potentially contributing to weight gain. Researchers questioned study participants about the previous day’s stressors before giving them a meal consisting of 930 calories and 60 grams of fat. The scientists then measured their metabolic rate – how long it took the women to burn calories and fat – and took measures of blood sugar, triglycerides, insulin and the stress hormone cortisol.

If you took a poll of people you know, most everyone would agree that hydration is important. However, very few would know why. I recently attended a conference call with Laura Daray from the Gatorade Sports Science Institute to discuss hydration, the effects of dehydration and the science of staying hydrated. I learned a bunch about hydration which I’ll get into in a bit, but the most important thing I learned is that I am not staying as hydrated as I should. My body…
  • Battle of the Blades: ShaveMob vs. Dollar Shave Club

    24 Jul 2014 | 12:29 pm
    There are many different components of overall health and wellness. Mosts of my posts are about physical well-being, with the occasional post about mental health and positive mindset. Something I don’t talk too much about is hygiene and finances, however, both of these are also important components to overall health. That all changes today! This post is a combo hygiene/financial well-being post. Razors are expensive. Your wallet will cry if you buy them at grocery stores or big box retailers. I turned to the interwebs to try and find a better solution and I found Dollar Shave Club. For…

    I was compensated for this review as part of the FitFluential campaign but all opinions are my own. I have been trail running more recently, and I love it. I love running in general, but taking it to the trails has turned up my love for running a notch or two. Trails offer a few things that road running cannot deliver. First and foremost is the scenery; there is nothing better than running a trail and seeing amazing views or seeing parts of the city that I’ve never seen before. When I’m running on the road, and I generally run the same routes, the road never…

    It finally happened. I ran out of time to post my Sensational Sunday post last night. I’ve come close a few times but I usually stay up late to prevent it because I like to blog in the now. For me it’s about journaling, not article sharing, and so my posts are, in a weird way, very time sensitive. I live (and blog) in the now.

I’m running around playing with my kids this summer and I sometimes even feel attractive. Yes. You heard me. “I feel pretty. Oh so pretty. I feel pretty, and witty and bright.” Well…not exactly. But something like that. Is it because I’m getting older? Is it that I have more to worry about than just how I look? Or maybe it’s because my kids look at me with such adoring eyes. Really, it doesn’t matter. I don’t hate my body anymore. That’s huge for me to admit and hard…
