    I'm sitting in the bar at a seasons 52 while on a business trip to Cincinnati when I suddenly realized I walked in here and sat down by myself without even thinking about it. As much as I've traveled for work over the years, I have never eaten in public alone - I guess I never wanted to look like the lonely fat girl eating by herself even though I wasn't (well I was fat but not lonely)! I did happily eat whatever I wanted, alone in my hotel getting fatter by the minute. This is a new level of confidence for me that was kind of unexpected. I've always thought of myself as confident, even…

    7 Apr 2014 | 5:05 am
    Continuing our “Ask Us (Almost) Anything” series, this month we’re answering this question from Diane: "How did you know when to transition to maintenance from loss mode? Was it a number or a size or something else? Did you struggle to not want to ‘lose a little more’?”I declared goal on a cloudy March day in 2007. I was at my doctor’s office for a routine checkup. I weighed 138 pounds. I said to my doctor, "So, do you suppose I’m done?" She said, "I think you can stop now." No fanfare, no confetti, no fireworks, no angels flying around the room singing "Hallelujah." Just me,…

    Smicksburg  is one of the smallest incorporated boroughs in Pennsylvania. Population: 46. Forty-six “English,” that is. Surrounding the borough is a community of roughly 800 Amish. If you live in western PA for more than 5 minutes, you grow used to seeing the Amish walking down the road, riding in their buggies, grocery shopping, working on construction sites, or manning vegetable or bakery stands at farm markets, even in the heart of Pittsburgh. So I was in Smicksburg with the Irishman the other day, buying a birthday gift for my daughter (Smicksburg is known for its quaint shops…

According to his measuring tape and his best guess, my doctor said Carlene was in excess of 8 pounds and she wouldn’t be born for another few weeks if she had her way. “Your blood pressure’s high, the baby is big enough,” he said, taking off his gloves. “We need to get the baby out.” “Ok,” was all I said, like I knew what he meant. Only I didn’t. He left, I got dressed, and a nurse came in with some papers. Told me to check into the hospital. “Ok,” I said again, and…

Luckily, this vegan cupcake recipe offers all the traditional flavors of carrot cake but cuts the amount of sugar and calories in half.

    Adding sprint bursts to your treadmill workout is a true game changer, even if you're new to running and mix walking into your workout. Playing with speed burns more calories, stokes your metabolism to burn more calories after your workout, and helps increase your speed as a runner. Plus, mixing your speeds helps fight belly fat - talk about a winning combination. The speed bursts in this workout only last 30 seconds with a full minute to recover. But the moderate pace is intended to push you, too. The first sprint may be slower than the last since you are warming up! Time Speed Incline…

    Australian researchers are working on a new drug made from cone snail venom, which would serve as a powerful and non-addictive pain killer. The drug is said to be 100 times more potent than morphine or gabapentine. The snail’s venom contains a protein that has been used to form five experimental compounds. A preliminary study on lab rats “appeared to significantly reduce pain,” said a press release from the University of Queensland, where the research is being conducted. “This is an important incremental step that could serve as the blueprint for the development of a…

Since I was 20 years old, I’ve walked in and out of entrepreneurship, a brazen act in and of itself, but even as I did it, I always carried an apology with me. “I’m sorry,” I would tell my husband, my family members, my friends. “I wish I could work a typical 9-5, earn a freaking paycheck, and just be normal.” I believed that my desire to chase my “crazy schemes” was a…

    I’ve known for a while now that my attitude is one of the biggest influences in my successes. My failures, too, but let’s keep this on the positive side. My point is that what I think affects how I feel and that affects how I act. It’s all very psychological. Or is it? Monday’s Morning Edition reported on a study that suggests that there could be an actual physiological component in all this. Specifically, Alia Crum‘s research focused on how nutrition labels affected the body’s processing of those foods. Her theory: “Labels are not just labels; they…

    I’m feeling the urge to explore the next letter in my alphabet series looking at the words and concepts that help me stay on the healthier path. I wonder if it might have something to do with this: What can I say, it was marked down to $1.00 a box in the clearance aisle. But that’s okay. I’ve got a couple of ‘D’ words to help me keep my focus. Discipline: Such a negative word if you think of it in terms of punishment or penance (I’ve tortured myself enough over the years, thank you very much), but when I think of discipline as a code of behavior, it becomes…

    Cammy Chapel
    7 Apr 2014 | 2:29 am
    This month’s AIM topic comes from the AIM: Ask Us (Almost) Anything responses. (We love when you ask us questions!) How did you know when to transition to maintenance from loss mode? Was it a number or a size or something else? Did you struggle to not want to “lose a little more”? Such great questions, and I’m not just saying that because I know the answers. Way back in 2008, around the minus-75 pound mark, I started thinking about how far I wanted to take the weight loss. I hadn’t set out to lose 100 pounds; I’d just wanted to lose “some…

    I was all set to write a deep and meaningful post, but then the sun came out and there went that idea. After a few days of rain, green is popping out all over here. I did my strength training this morning, and a nice long walk will round out the exercise nicely. It’s not all green around here. This was my view from the van yesterday as I waited for my parents to finish up their doctor visits. We had a two-fer day with back-to-back appointments. My job is to drop them off and pick them up at the door. Dad got the all clear following his surgery, but Mom is still inching along in her…

You realize what time it is, and you don’t have anything planned. So, you’re met with a decision: order take-out or make something frozen.

    Have you really ever paid attention to the ingredients in your makeup? Did you ever think you should or needed to? On our most recent Mamavation TV show (watch it above!), we chatted with Sarah Johnson from RawSkinCeuticals and learned that we really do need to paying attention to the products we use. Sure, we hear this all the time about cleaning products or food, but many of us never think that makeup could be toxic to our skin and our bodies, too. The bottom line of the conversation was this: You NEED to make changes. There are too many possible problems that could stem from the toxins we…

The news wasn’t good. Pennie had a large hiatal hernia—the cause of her acid reflux issues. She was referred to a general surgeon, but there was a problem: the surgeon said Pennie was too large for a hernia procedure. Despite the setback, Pennie didn’t give up. She wanted a second opinion. So Pennie did some research, and decided to call St.Vincent and set up a consultation with Dr. John Huse, a surgeon…

  • How to Quit Smoking Without Gaining Weight

    16 Apr 2014 | 3:17 am
    If you’re a smoker and you want to kick the habit, you may fear the weight gain that typically comes with it. Most smokers gain weight when quitting for two reasons. First, some tend to replace their smoking with eating, since smoking is considered an oral fixation. Instead of smoking, they turn to food, and this can add on the pounds. The other reason people tend to gain weight when they quit smoking is because cigarettes are known to kick start your metabolism. When you quit smoking, your metabolism slows down, and this means that weight that you normally burned off during the day will…

Vegans refrain from eating meat as well as any animal made or animal related products. While most items are easy for vegans to determine if it’s okay to eat, there is one food out there that causes a major controversy between vegans—honey.

Some ideas are easier than others to implement, but we can all benefit from most of them. How many can you adopt?The GQ tips break down into four topic areas: eating, drinking, working and playing. OK, so they call the fourth area walking, but I like to think of it as playing so that I’m more likely to do it. Walking is a means to an end, but playing; that’s something that I can make time for!Eating StrategiesSkip the…

    Juice cleanses are very trendy right now. Every Hollywood star raves about them, Dr. Oz gushes over each week’s new juicing diet, and juice bars are springing up to offer every possible fruit reduced to its purest nectar. But are juice cleanses safe? How about effective?Juice-based beverage sales are a billion dollar business. Is there any benefit beyond the yummy taste? Scientific research is scant, at best. Anecdotal results are everywhere, though. Throw a rock, hit a juice cleanse acolyte. Everyone is juicing and spending their day proclaiming how great they feel. They are detoxed and…

    Completed the first week on Wahls Paleo Plus (WPP) , and also 2 of the AIP reintroductions. Basically I’ve been eating AIP plus WPP this month (and will for the whole of the month) with the exception of days when I reintroduce. Reintroductions : 1) raw milk, grass-fed, cultured butter : fine! Yippee! Will try conventional butter as a separate reintroduction in a few weeks, since the high quality stuff is great for home but does nothing for making life out and about any easier 2) black pepper : seems fine, I’m only 24 hours in. I didn’t expect it to be a problem and it…
  • Wahls Paleo Plus

    8 Apr 2014 | 4:12 am
    I decided to transition to Wahls Paleo Plus because I was doing an autoimmune paleo diet (AIP, following Sarah Ballantyne’s book The Paleo Approach) in March.  I loved the healthy feeling I had from so many vegetables (and a few berries) but I didn’t like that I wasn’t losing much weight, given that I still have a lot to lose. Wahls is pretty close, the restrictions on both diets are similar, but Wahls has three levels, one of which is ketogenic PLUS keeps high levels of vegetables (and a daily serving of berries). So April 1st I started to transition to Wahls Paleo Plus.

    I have been away from this blog for a long time now. And on the whole, I’ve been away from weight loss.  My weight got within a few pounds of my highest-ever weight last summer, and 2 years before that it was almost there too.  My “stable” weight for the past few years has been solidly in the 220s. In 2012 I promised myself I’d keep trying, again and again if need be, with a goal to go 44 months of being consistently engaged in managing my weight, counting in 44 day increments. I had several attempts, all falling short of 44 days.  The last of those was in July…

I was stuck at the mall and really hungry, so I ducked into a GNC and bought a Cinnamon Roll Quest bar, part of the line that is sweetened with stevia and erythritol.  That bar and an iced green tea quelled…

The site has a clean design with sections geared toward home, kitchen, health, vision, nutrition, fitness, intimacy, sleep, on-the-go, and a sale section.

Persons who suffer from spring allergies, are subject to other allergic conditions…

    Four Week Beach Body

  • If You Lift More Than 5 Reps Per Set Your Muscles Will Get Eaten Away

    12 Apr 2014 | 9:08 am
    This really pisses me off because I keep hearing the same thing over and over again. When someone wants to lose weight they automatically start busting out 100 exercises per session and each set has to be at least 15 reps long because it will help you burn fat much quicker. Excuse my language, but this is the biggest steaming pile of horse shit in the world. Drop the heavy weights for lighter ones and your muscles will get eaten away. Here is why… Your muscles don’t mean shit to your body Once you start eating less food to drop fat there isn’t going to be enough to go…
  • Weighing Yourself Will Destroy Your Chances Of Achieving A Six Pack (But Here Is What To Do Instead)

    5 Apr 2014 | 4:25 pm
    I thought it was a publicity stunt at first because it sounded so crazy. Apparently hotels in Cancun, Bali, and Ibiza will now have a set of scales lying outside each room. It’s so a girl can weigh guys before she takes them into her room, but if they’re too heavy they get sent packing with a loaded gun and nowhere to fire it except the used tissue from the night before. Americans, Europeans, and Australians are now officially fucked (or not fucked if you think about it). Or are they? Weight doesn’t mean shit Do you really think anyone cares how much you weight when…
  • Why Meal Timing Is Essential When You’re On A Low Calorie Diet

    22 Mar 2014 | 6:34 am
    I used to be the loser who would run to the locker room after I’d finished lifting so I could get my protein shake into my system as quickly as possible. Then I’d head home at double speed so I could eat a large meal within an hour of finishing my protein shake. I had a logical reason for being a complete idiot. If I didn’t feed my muscles they would melt away and all my hard work in the gym would be for nothing. You’ll laugh at this, but… I even know one guy who ate dry protein powder as he was walking home from the gym because he forgot to put water in his…
  • Why You Must Cut Carbs From Your Diet (For One Specific Reason)

    13 Mar 2014 | 12:08 pm
    You need to imagine yourself on a tropical beach a few months from now. You have a great tan and a washboard stomach. The baby oil is causing your muscles to glisten in the sun. All the hot girls on the beach can’t take their eyes off you. You can’t see them looking because they’re wearing sunglasses, but they are filthy perverts. A couple of them walk up to you. The rest are too shy. They ask if you’re going out that night because they want to meet you at the bar. You meet up with them and you have sex at the end of the night. Maybe you even have a threesome. The same…
  • Body Shape Guaranteed To Get You More Sex With Hot Women

    11 Mar 2014 | 1:19 pm
    I’m sick and tired of guys saying they lift weights because they enjoy it. They don’t! They lift weights because they want more sex. Not just any sex either. They want sex with the hottest pussy they can find and by lifting weights they expect it to fall into their lap. The sooner you admit it to yourself the better. I lost my way after a few years of lifting heavy weights. I forgot why I started training in the first place and I became obsessed with putting on as much muscle as possible. Muscles are like tattoos because you always seem to want a little more. It got to the stage…

  • Is Soy Paleo? The Problem With Beans

    Paula King
    17 Apr 2014 | 7:43 pm
    Is Soy Paleo? Soy and soybeans are often thought of as a healthy food. Many people make tofu and soy milk a part of their daily diets. Many packaged foods contain soy in one form or another so much so that someone eating a “normal American diet” would be hard pressed to avoid soy. Health food stores are loaded with soy and “healthy” products that contain soy. So why does Paleo have a problem with soy? I should start out by saying not every Paleo expert is against legumes including soy. Some Paleo dieters include beans in their diets including soy, but most of the Paleo…

  • Paleo for Dogs-Best Paleo Cookbook for Dogs?

    Paula King
    14 Apr 2014 | 10:35 am
    Paleo for dogs Mans best friend is well suited to the Paleo diet. The origin of the domestic dog is debatable, but scientists estimate that we have been living together for aprox. 30000 years. It is believed that all domestic dogs are related to the wolf. The diet of the wolf is mainly deer and boar and water fowl although they do on occasion eat fruits like apples and pears.It would be a reasonable assumption that these types of food are also the best choice for our domestic dogs. However, most dogs do not get this kind of diet from their masters. Most modern dog food is made up largely of…
  • Paleo Controversy

    11 Apr 2014 | 9:56 pm
    Paleo Controversy There has been a great deal of Paleo controversy in the news lately. Of course controversy is what makes a good news story, or at least it would seem that way. With all of the glowing testimonials about Paleo, with all the coinciding scientific studies that back up the principles of the Paleo diet, and with the backing of Paleo by major health organizations and sports professionals, you would think there would be little controversy. I thnk one reason for controversy is that we live in a world that thrives on controversy. Im afraid much of it is negative. For some reason we…
