Your food may be why your Pooch has acne

Animals have allergies too so it’s important to only give your dog or cat pet food. A client told me that his dog had bumps on his skin for years, but the cause was unknown. The vet prescribed Benadryl so the owner wrapped up the pills in cheese. He later found out that his dog […]

Add this to increase intoxication, & it’s not alcohol.

I’m no party animal, more like a gym rat and a homebody, but one of my favorite drinks is a lemon drop martini. I had no idea that sweet drinks get us intoxicated quicker! (1). Adding sugar to an alcoholic beverage is what will get you even more drunk! I figured that 12 oz. of beer […]

Don’t let your dentist take x-rays

Most dentists suggest updated x-rays yearly. If you ask the dentist why, he’ll probably tell you it’s to check to make sure your teeth are okay. That’s a half-truth.

No one is perfect. Stop comparing yourself to others

The image that people portray in public is usually when they are at their best. We don’t pop out of bed looking fabulous. Social media is great in some respects, but it makes many people jealous and depressed. Other gym rats who don’t know me assume I’m just a fitness fanatic, and my job is […]

Why everyone should be anti-gluten

I’m 99% gluten free, not because I have Celiac, gluten ataxia, or even a gluten sensitivity, but because the majority of foods that contain gluten are processed, and processed foods provide little nutritional value. These beloved foods, like pasta and bread, are high in calories, and the cause of obesity and many diseases. I don’t […]

What it takes to lose weight

People tell me, too many times to count, that they know they are heavy, and they need to exercise and eat better. I love helping others and teaching nutrition, but I can’t make someone thin, by telling them what to do. They are the ones that need to take action. Everyone has the power to change […]

Are vegetables that important?

Vegetables not only give us nutrients, they also provide fiber which cleans out the bad stuff, like cholesterol. Fresh, clean vegetables help strengthen our bodies to fight off disease. Make it a habit to eat some veggies with every meal and snack. And rotate your vegetables; don’t eat just sweet potatoes and asparagus. Eat an array of vegetables […]
