What my trip to Ann Arbor reinforced...

Monday, April 4, 2016 | Category: Food
This weekend we took our girls to Ann Arbor, stay overnight in a hotel, do some swimming. We also took them to the Michigan spring football game and experience Michigan Stadium. They even got to go on the field...AND get Jim Harbaugh’s autograph! So we all had amazing experiences and created great memories. But, going on vacation (even a mini-vacation) often creates obstacles to health, especially the Food part. Since we were in Ann Arbor, we went to the famous Blimpy Burger and indulged i...

Food BEFORE Fitness? (video)

 Admittedly I crave sugar.  I love candy, cookies, pies, cakes... you name it.  I know it is bad for me, I try to avoid it as much as possible, but from time to time I give in.  (Honestly, I probably give in more than I should)  All those sweets I named above are foods that you KNOW are made with sugar.  I found the article below very helpful because there are hidden sugars EVERYWHERE that we may be consuming and not even knowing.  This man journals his e...

Food or Fitness: Which is More Important?

Thursday, April 9, 2015 | Category: Food
  I don't like choosing between aspects of health because I don't want you to think you don't need both. So before I answer which is more important, food or fitness, first I need to know, WHAT IS YOUR GOAL? Is it to LOSE FAT or GAIN STRENGTH? For a great majority, it's to lose fat (or weight) so that's how I'll answer "which is more important."  Let me give you a scenario: you find out from a body composition test that your Body Fat Percentage is high and would benefit by losing...

Want a Better Soda Pop?

Sunday, March 24, 2013 | Category: Food
  Pop (or Soda if you prefer) is probably one of the worst things you can consume. The regular version has tons of sugar and high fructose corn syrup. Many think diet soda is healthier...but it's actually worse for you! Yes, it cuts out the sugar, BUT it still has the high fructose corn syrup AND for your added (death) benefit it has ASPARTAME. Aspartame is a neuro toxin, and the only known chemical to cross the blood brain barrier which has been proven to cause seizures and Alzheimer...
