    You’re there at dinner. You’ve cleaned your plate of whatever deliciousness you whipped up. You’re satisfied, yet you want more. But you know that as soon as you finish that second helping, you’ll be uncomfortably full. Have-to-unzip-your-pants full. Is there any way to help you resist the temptation to scoop up more while you wait for your brain to catch up to what you’ve already eaten? MealEnders signaling lozenges are trying to do just that. The lozenges come in four flavors — Chocolate Mint, Citrus, Mocha and Cinnamon. They have a softer outer layer…

  • Asparagus Egg and Bacon Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette

    23 Mar 2015 | 8:17 am
    I love the combination of this simple salad of asparagus, hard boiled egg and bacon tossed with a Dijon vinaigrette – it has Spring written all over it!I'm sharing this from the archives because asparagus is in season right now, and this is one of my go-to salads this time of year. Asparagus and eggs are a match made in heaven, but not just for breakfast, it's great for lunch too! I always keep hard boiled eggs on hand in my fridge to use throughout the week, therefore this salad came together in less than 10 minutes. It's perfect to pack for lunch, and you can easily double or…

    I would estimate that billions of dollars have been made pandering to this question, which is funny because in reality it’s a completely pointless question for 99% of people hoping to lose weight. Cliff Notes: There is no best exercise for fat loss. The only thing that matters for fat loss is that you’re burning more […] What is The Best Exercise for Fat Loss?

    27 Mar 2015 | 7:10 am
    Brown fat tissue, the body’s “good fat,” communicates with the brain through sensory nerves, possibly sharing information that is important for fighting human obesity, such as how much fat we have and how much fat we’ve lost, according to researchers.

    26 Mar 2015 | 5:46 pm
    Bariatric surgery prior to joint replacement is a cost-effective option to improve outcomes in severely overweight patients, research demonstrates. It is well-known that obesity takes a toll on one's health. Bariatric surgery and subsequent weight loss reduces the risk of heart disease, diabetes and even some forms of cancer. But before now, the effect of bariatric surgery on joint replacement outcomes was not known.

    There is a bit of controversy surrounding Cinderella’s waist, or rather, Lily James’ waist.

  • Hello from Louisiana

    28 Mar 2015 | 10:29 am
    Hi all, You can call me Red and I'm from southeast Louisiana. I came here through a web search regarding Ideal Protein. I'm trying to lose about 40-50#. My goal would be my high school weight, which is around 150. I work a lot and exercise almost 4-5 days a week. I think this is going to be especially hard for me since CrossFit is my vice, and has been ever since I started it in April 2013. I'm planning on starting Ideal Protein in the next week or so, I'm hunting around for the right place to go and sign up for IP currently. I think this is going to be a little difficult since they say not…

Also, we listed our house for sale (after weeks of cleaning, purging, staging, etc) and had a great offer on our house within a week!

  • No More Timed Goals

    28 Mar 2015 | 8:26 am
    No timed goal or number on a scale ever made me calm or confident. I've decided to give up trying to reach a certain number by a certain day. To celebrate each loss and to learn if I come to a point where I don't lose. Would I like to be somewhere under 139 by the time I'm 65 (4/6/16)? Of course I would, but at my age- every day is too precious to fret about numbers on a scale. Each day is to be relished with joy and the more I lose, the healthier I get, the more activity and fun I can bring into my life to up the joy level. Number goals don't do that for me. Numbers let me know I'm on the…

  • Triphala - A Natural Aid for Weight Loss

    24 Mar 2015 | 6:55 pm
    I've been very happy with my weight for a few years now but there is something not quite right with my digestive system. I am not absorbing the nutrients and eliminating the waste as efficiently as I could be. I think I may be short on some healthy intestinal enzymes or may have accumulated some unhealthy bacteria or virus but I know something is not quite right as my stomach often makes outrageous noises and the intestines seem to move (!) after a meal and I often feel a need to (excuse me) release gas, which was never a problem I had before. This has been an ongoing thing for a few years…

  • I Had a Dream

    25 Mar 2015 | 5:39 pm
    Last night, I had a dream. It lasted most of the night and was very vivid. I think it was a fried-potatoes-induced dream; I felt so icky and gross yesterday and today, almost hung over. I rarely dream of food anymore, so this one was pretty unusual.I dreamed of eating food... all kinds of junk. I was in a store, like a Costco type place and they were selling all kinds of candy and ice cream and cookies. I was eating it. I had a couple of huge scoops of ice cream on a cone and these flavors of ice cream had candy and cookies and stuff mixed in (ice cream with crunchy, textured "stuff" mixed in…

    Well, I never said I was perfect at this reintroduction thing...So I decided to add back egg whites so that I could have eggs for breakfast sometimes instead of bacon, avocado, and fruit so often. On Saturday I had a bit of mayo (made with whole eggs) on a sandwich wrap (uncured ham, onions, and mayo wrapped in big lettuce leaves). That went fine. On Sunday, I had half a hard boiled egg in a salad that day (it was good, with Romaine, red onions, mushrooms, Gorgonzola, and grilled chicken) and that was fine too. Monday I had scrambled eggs (plain, scrambled and salted) which was just…
  • Update

    22 Mar 2015 | 7:45 am
    Just a short update on my week. I am finding myself less drawn to the computer lately (it's spring!) but do want to keep a record of how I'm doing and update for those who are interested.This week I reintroduced corn in the form of popcorn and restaurant tortilla chips. I didn't notice any issues with corn itself, but the tortilla chips were kind of triggering. I think that's just a "chip" thing and I am best served by avoiding them. My main reason for reintroducing corn is to be able to have a low calorie, crunchy salty snack when I want one (popcorn) and also to know that I can eat it when…
  • Girl Scout Cookies

    18 Mar 2015 | 4:57 pm
    It's that time of year again and I've been helping my daughter sell Girl Scout cookies with her troop. We've really enjoyed Girl Scouts, but when I was given those forms with the pretty, colorful photos of all of the kinds of cookies to sell, I was not too thrilled. What? You are asking a women who has a history of extreme binge eating (and a sugar/carb/sweets addiction) to look at, talk about, and sell these cookies, have cases of them in her home, and handle the boxes on a daily basis? Well, actually, that's how I imagine that I could have reacted when they handed me the forms. Instead, I…
  • It's Time

    15 Mar 2015 | 9:29 pm
    Some days, I am really tired of this whole thing... the dieting, tracking, sticking to whatever plan, exercise, weight loss thing. I just want eating to be a natural part of my day. I remember back when eating was just that: a natural part of the daily schedule. It happened at our three meals a day and sometimes in between, if I got hungry. I didn't have to think about it or plan it beyond the basic menu planning one does when one gets married and has children. Even in college, eating and weight was barely a blip on the radar most of the time. Sure, over the years between the ages of 16 and…

    26 Mar 2015 | 2:30 am
    For readers who don't know, I'm the father of 3 young girls. This week I'll be discussing just a smattering of the weight bias teaching they're getting from the world around them. While I catch some of them, I'm sure there are many instances that I'm missing. I've written about JK Rowling's "Big "Fat" Hypocrisy" on my blog before, and I also wrote about it in my book, "Harry Potter’s Dudley Dursley's weight is both a constant source of derision and scorn and an identity unto itself.

While I catch some of them, I'm sure there are many instances that I'm missing. I was excited when my sister-in-law gave us a copy of The Princess Bride.

  • Prescription Opioid Addiction is a Disease. You Can Be Part of the Cure.

    (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0) Molly Steenson/Flickr To my knowledge, I’ve never had a friend, relative or close acquaintance who was addicted to opioid drugs. Statistically, that seems to make me one of the lucky ones. Because opioid addiction, thanks considerably to the soaring use and misuse of prescription pain killers, now involves an alarmingly large segment of the U.S. population, either directly or though personal relationships. Opioid drugs include notoriously illicit items such as heroin and opium, but increasingly those are merely the tip of a pharmaceutical iceberg, the bulk of which…

    1981 Sony Walkman advertisement Does all the fitness technology used today help us or hurt us? When I first started running, I used a primitive Walkman and headphones to listen to music. That didn’t last long. Between the Florida rains and my sweat, the headphones rusted, and I figuratively tossed that gadget to the curb and never looked back. So, yeah, I admit it, for a while Eye of the Tiger played in my head when I ran. But soon my mind moved on to better applications of its gray and white matter, and now I believe in being completely unplugged, especially during outdoor walking,…
  • Red Meat Risks Go beyond Saturated Fat: Heme Iron, Intestinal Bacteria

    Karen Collins
    25 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    (CC BY-SA 2.0) Kent Wang/Flickr Nutrition recommendations invariably ask you to limit your consumption of red meat. Most people think that this is because of the saturated fat in red meat, but there is more to it than that, and you cannot get around the risks of red meat simply by choosing lean cuts. Of course, when you do eat red meat (beef, pork or lamb), choosing lean cuts is important in order to limit saturated fat and avoid excess calories. But eating too much of any red meat (more than 18 ounces cooked, weekly) increases risk for colorectal cancer. Red meats that are processed, such as…

The A.G.’s people analyzed samples of the Walmart, Target, Walgreens and GNC house brands of gingko biloba, St. John’s Wort, ginseng, echinacea, and saw palmetto and found that every item tested contained either very little or absolutely none of the advertised herb.

It’s a living meditation of observation without judgment. What are we observing? Well, the way we tend to judge, ourselves and others.

    We’ve talked about the fact I’m working not to be judgmental. I’ve not walked miles any shoes save my own (I may think I know what theirs feel like—I have no idea). For me, however, judging is different from intuitive living. Passing judgement is not the same as trusting our guts & going with the immediate feedback they provide. It’s not the same, to define in its most basic of ways, as making snap judgements. And, when framed in the gut-tapping way, I’m all in *favor* of the snap judgements. Here’s why.

    I’m pleased to report that we finally got some snow here in Memphis last week. Unfortunately, we got a layer of ice under it, but it still looked pretty. Because it rained (hard!) in the hours before the temps plummeted, the streets couldn’t be treated with brine which meant they were a mess. Memphis doesn’t currently have any snow removal equipment, so if the roads are a mess, they’re going to stay a mess for a while. Especially if the temps are in the teens and twenties. Brrrrr. Yep, a MESS. On the bright side, I had a full choice of lanes in which to drive.

I couldn’t have told you what a 4-oz. serving of chicken looked like or whether or not I was eating 3 ounces of potato or 10 ounces.

Sadly, we got ice instead of snow and just enough of that to coat the roads and make driving a bit dicey. Worse than driving is trying to walk on it. Fortunately, we’d had just enough meltage today that I was able to cross the gym parking lot without embarrassing myself. Bonus: I didn’t embarrass myself inside the gym either. Good thing, too, since it was pretty crowded. Like so much of the country, we’ve got snow (minor) and frigid temps forecast for the rest of the week.

    You're going to LOVE these baked eggs, baked in a nest of spaghetti squash which has a flavor similar to hash browns. Perfect for breakfast or brunch, and because I love my eggs with sriracha, I top mine with a few dashes just for an extra kick, totally optional of course.This recipe calls for cooked spaghetti squash which you can either roast in the oven cut side down in a baking dish at 375°F for 1 hour, or the quicker way is to pierce it all over with a fork, then microwave until the skin is soft, about 2 to 3 minutes per pound.  Remove the seeds and scrape the strands with a fork.

These are usually limited to: Headaches and Dizziness Because sugar and caffeine both have addictive effects, when you give them up during the induction phase of your ketogenic diet (caffeine can in a lot of cases be reintroduced later), you may experience some withdrawal symptoms. These will only last for a few days and will not be severe,…

In a recent article Michelle Lewis, Utah Binge Eating Expert said: “Binge eating is a viscous cycle, which can, if not stopped, cause you great emotional, physical, and mental distress.” Binge eating affects 3.5% of women and…

However, most of the advice for getting protein includes eating stuff vegetarians and vegans can’t – if that describes you, read this article for muscle building nutrition advice for vegetarians and vegans… ==>…

    Celebrity 4 days diet is one of the best ways to lose 5 pounds fast in a short period of time. Mostly this diet is used by movie stars, dancers and ballerinas before performances. Possible you have already heard about this diet but with a different name, for example actor’s diet or Hollywood diet.

For a bulking diet plan, you need to have a hypercaloric diet, which means you will have a major increase on total calories through the day.

I’m not sure what it takes to be an obesity expert, but it is clear, if the Daily Mail quotes from Steve Miller and Professor Susan Jebb, the Government’s Obesity Adviser are accurate, that a lack of empathy and a judgemental attitude are the order of the day. It’s a shame, but the anti-obesity trend that we can all get behind is starting to look too much like anti-obese.
