    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…

    Working with mice and rabbits, scientists have found a way to block abnormal cholesterol production, transport and breakdown, successfully preventing the development of atherosclerosis, the main cause of heart attacks and strokes and the number-one cause of death among humans. The condition develops when fat builds inside blood vessels over time and renders them stiff, narrowed and hardened, greatly reducing their ability to feed oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle and the brain.

I even dug out my old, crappy juicer and made myself fresh juices for awhile. I liked how I felt (I was not fasting, just having juices while also eating some regular healthy meals) but decided it was just too many carbs for me. After all, I've been low carbing in one form or another most of the time since early 2010, ranging anywhere from 50 to 100 grams of carbs per day. Juicing gives a lot more…

  • Lupita Nyong'o Is People's Most Beautiful, but We Want to Know More About Those Arms

    23 Apr 2014 | 10:33 am
    Lupita Nyong'o has been wowing us all year long, and People agrees - it just named her the most beautiful person of the year. But it wasn't her breathtaking red carpet looks or darling selfies that had us gasping the first time we saw her - it was her killer arms. They are strong, toned, and more than capable of carrying all the awards she racked up for her role in 12 Years a Slave. So we turned to Meka Gibson, personal training manager at David Barton Gym, to find out how we can chisel our own upper bodies into something even slightly close to resembling Lupita's.

    Sip on smoothies regularly? Self offers advice on what ingredients to look out for and how to build a better post-workout beverage at home. I've become much more of a smoothie person than I used to be, in part due to the crop of juice bars and health food joints that some serve them up all over NYC, and in part to my new single-serve blender that makes clean-up much easier than with a clunky blender. I'm most apt to grab one after a tough workout class, because smoothie and juice bars are always so conveniently located next to gyms (or even inside them!) But I can't help but wonder whether…

A new study suggests that eating late at night can help to boost your metabolism.

They did so in the hopes that this would garner more medical attention toward obesity and increase the reimbursement of obesity-related treatments, such as surgery, drugs and counselling. However, new research from the University of Richmond suggests that considering obesity a disease is actually counterproductive. “The term disease suggests that bodies, physiology, and genes are malfunctioning.

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…
  • Alphabet Soup: D

    Cammy Chapel
    9 Apr 2014 | 3:36 am
    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…
  • AIM: Are We There Yet?

    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…

    Most of us are so busy during the week (and even the weekends) that we find ourselves struggling to put a decent, healthy dinner on the table for our families. Sometimes, that pushes us to pick something up through a drive-thru or the grocery deli which leads to feeding our families processed junk. During our last Mamavation TV show, Leah was joined by Jasmine of Healthy Jasmineand Liza of (a)Musing Foodie, and they discussed ways we can feed our families quickly, easily, and healthily.

    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…

  • How to Quit Smoking Without Gaining Weight

    Gayla
    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.

As a Propel Ambassador, I was asked to travel to Los Angeles for a photo shoot. In the weeks leading up to the trip, I was really excited. However, as the trip got closer, I was nervous for no known reason. I didn’t know what to expect from the trip. I knew that I would be meeting fellow ambassadors (Lee, Presley, Theodora, Dai) and was very excited for that, but that was really the only detail I had (other than they would be taking pictures of us).

    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

    Sarah
    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.

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…

    Summer is just around the corner which means it is time to shed those pounds and get into that “swimwear pose”. You may be able to get this done alone, but by following the right exercise, diet, a healthy diet, it can help you boost the process. Almost everyone enjoys the taste of french fries!They are usually a great temptation to anyone trying to lose weight. If you want to eat fries, bake them instead of frying them. Loosen using a spatula; turn and bake for about 10 minutes longer. This great idea for “French Bakes” came from the Laurel’s Kitchen Cookbook.

    Flat Belly Yoga Workout Think yoga is just for flexibility and balance? Think again. If you’re working hard to get the flat belly and abs of your dreams, yoga needs to be a part of your workout routine. What’s so effective about yoga is that all of that flexibility and balance training are actually working a ton of muscles that normally get ignored, especially the muscles that make up your abs and core. Any pose that requires a little balance will engage your abs in ways your typical workout just won’t do. Plus, yoga burns a significant number of calories at the same time. Here’s what…

Herbicides and pesticides make their way onto your dinner plate more often than you’d like, and foods that are highly processed only make weight loss a bigger challenge that it already is.

My parents would drop me and my siblings off. We’d all chat with Nan and Pop. And within minutes, the brainwashing sessions would begin. Fast forward two decades and I’m very thankful for these brainwashing sessions. You see, Nan & Pop’s brainwashing wasn’t the kind that creates terrorists.

Visceral fat is the bully of the body. Stubborn and dangerous, it hangs around your organs just waiting to cause trouble. Unlike subcutaneous fat, which resides just under the skin all over the body and is fairly easy to lose, visceral fat clusters around the abdomen, surrounding the internal organs.

    In 2013 I lost 34lb. By some standards that’s actually a decent result – but it wasn’t even halfway to the 70lb target I had set. Why had I failed to hit my target? Had I been too unrealistic in setting my goals? Had I allowed my old excuses to creep back in? Had I been too unrealistic in setting my target? I’ve said before you should be able to safely lose 1-1.5lb per week – but what I’d not considered is whether you should assume that you can lose that week in week out for a full year? Is it reasonable to expect to lose (and ultimately keep off) 52-78lb in just one…

Although some carbohydrates are a good source of vitamins and minerals, some are highly processed and have virtually no nutritious value, so cutting these out is a no-brainer.

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…

    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…

    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…

     Paleo vs. Mediterranean This is not going to be a detailed comparison, but rather a quick glimpse at the differences between these two diets. Diets are kind of like your favorite baseball team. People often get too hung up identifying with one or the other to dangerous degrees. It is not a religion or a team you play on. It is important , but each of us has the right to investigate all forms of diet, and draw our own conclusions. The Mediterranean diet is a diet based on the diet of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean.Lets start with some of the similarities. Both Paleo and Med diet…

    Paleo fast food junkie There are a lot of great foods to eat on the Paleo diet. The diet is flexible and permissive enough so that you can cheat on occasion and still get results. However, some experts and Paleo forums are witnessing what could be a chink in the Paleo armor. Paleo goodies. You can eat dark chocolate on the Paleo diet. You can drink wine. Once you learn more advanced recipes, you can learn to bake Paleo breads, muffins, cookies, brownies and pizza. This is fine if you practice good Paleo dining most of the time. However, many are noticing a trend where people are starting to…
  • Who Writes Paleo Books ?

    Who writes Paleo Books? When you are looking for a good Paleo book, who do you turn to? There are probably a handful of true authorities on the Paleo diet. I would consider Dr.Loren Cordain, Robb Wolf and a few others to be experts in the new Paleo lifestyle. But as we see here on this website, there are thousands of Paleo books to choose from. How do we know these authors actually have expertise on the subject ? Actually we dont. To be an expert in Paleo you would need to be a scientist. But to write a book on Paleo, you would also need writing skills. To write a Paleo Cookbook, you should…

    Paleo Sleep and the Paleo Lifestyle We hear a lot about the Paleo lifestyle, but what is it exactly? What it shouldnt be is Paleo fanatics dressing like cavemen, spearing animals and mimicking what they think man did, millions of years ago. What it should be is a plan or routine that puts natural and logical health practices based on Paleo principles, put into action in our modern lives. The Paleo diet is referred to as a lifestyle because it involves more than just food, and more than a temporary food change. It is a pattern for the rest of your life. The Paleo lifestyle could be broken down…
