Contrary to what the Ontario Ministry of Health is saying, listing calories on menus will not make us healthier. In fact, it can actually make some of us sicker. Giving people partial information with which they're supposed to make informed decisions is just not going to work.
Sorry, but there's no such thing as a miracle weight loss pill.

These women actually coach and don't just call themselves one on Instagram and Facebook. They help people like you and I (people with kids, full-time jobs, students etc.) look and feel awesome and get incredibly strong.
Just another reason to get more water in your life.

When it comes down to planning your spring workout routine, remember just like a fashion trend, there is no cookie-cutter approach to fitness. It is important to decide what is most important to you, your goals and your individual circumstances when selecting a boot camp to join.
Yup, there's no typo there. It says should. You 100 per cent should get on the scale and weigh yourself post summer holidays. In fact, I think you should be weighing in weekly (but that's a whole other blog post). Let's focus on why after a week or two of vacation, you should get on the scale.
1. You're Eating Too Much, Healthy or Not My dad once told me: you can gain weight if you eat too much -- even if you eat too many carrots. What he meant was, even if you're eating healthy foods, if y...

I used to weigh more than 300 pounds. In 2003 I lost more than half my body weight. You might think that when I reflect on my 300-pound self that it would be with disdain or pity. Hell no. The longer I'm thin, though, the more I miss the gifts of living in a body so big that people often turned away. It may sound strange to some, but here are five things I miss about my old, obese self.

"I'd be happy if I lost 10 pounds." No greater lie has ever been spoken in the health world. I'm guilty of thinking it. I'm guilty of trying it. Happiness, and your reason for changing your diet, working out more, or doing anything health related can not be linked to weight loss. Not long term.
If you don't want to get the "you said that last year" eye roll from your friends or spouse, you have to change it up. Stop making resolutions that are too broad and that fizzle by February. If you really want to change your life, make rules. Make the goal clear.
I have watched a lot of people fail at New Year's resolutions for the past decade. I even made some great money off of the January first commitments. Here is what I want everyone to prepare for month by month. This is generally how it goes for those I have seen lose 50-150lbs.

The worst thing for commitment in health is January. If the words "I want to lose weight" came out of your mouth in the past, let's talk about how to get the results you said you wanted. It's simple, really: Take a long term approach, and have a lot of fun watching your body change.
Work with a personal trainer, tell them what you want to accomplish, then make the time meaningful and fun. Doing this will mean you will probably have the joy of making a different New Year Resolution next year. For this upcoming year, and starting right now, do the following.
My problem isn't with Maria as a person. I don't believe that she was intentionally trying to hurt anyone, and there's a very good chance that she had no idea how this image would add major fuel to the already blazing fire of contempt in a society that glorifies the skinniest bodies and demonizes pretty much everything else.

Many of us find ourselves eating out on a regular basis due to social or corporate demands, but restaurants' objectives are not to keep our weight in line. On average Americans eat out at least four times per week. Can you eat out and maintain your weight without consuming only veggies and steamed fish? Yes you can. Here is my advice.
It's been three weeks on the Lindora diet and I've lost 16 pounds. The diet is easy to comply with because it's well structured, there aren't a lot of options, and I'm a creature of habit so I can get down with eating roughly the same things over and over. Here's my daily meal plan.

Diets that are low in refined carbohydrates may help people to keep weight off longer than low-fat plans, new research suggests. The study in Tuesday's online issue of the Journal of the American Medi...
