Soda causes depression & gray teeth

I stopped drinking soda many years ago, but people still drink it, possibly because they are addicted to the combination of sugar and caffeine. Soda is linked to Type 2 diabetes, weight gain, fatty liver disease, cavities, worn tooth enamel, weakened bones, osteoporosis, depression, heart disease, and discolored teeth (1). If you’re thirsty, drink filtered […]

Keto diet = bone loss & early death

The ketogenic diet has been extremely popular because people can lose weight and still get to eat their favorite meats, and more fats, even animal fat. This high fat, medium protein diet, works, because it cuts carbs. Only 50 grams per day from any type of carbohydrate is permitted. To put that into perspective, that’s about […]

Lose weight by changing your bedtime

We all have good intentions when the goal is weight loss; we start out with a small breakfast, or skip it entirely, have a salad for lunch, soup for dinner, then after dinner, a few snacks: chips, a bowl of ice cream, cookies, deli meat, cheese and crackers and several handfuls of nuts. When you […]

My new diet caused my hair to fall out & change

Normally I wear my curly hair down, but I decided to blow dry it straight and put it in a pony tail. What alarmed me was how thin my hair was. My hair has been really thick my whole life. On a recent visit to my hairdresser, she asked, “Why is your hair so thin? […]

How exercise impacts dietary choices & cravings

From my own personal experience, intense cardio over 15 minutes, makes me hungrier, crave more carbs, and I end up eating more calories than I need to, so I gain weight (mostly fat). Other people have reported the same issues with HIIT workouts, boot camps, cardio classes, running…etc. (you get the drift). Since many people […]

What the Keto diet conceals

The ketogenic diet is a high fat, very low carb diet, with moderate amounts of animal-based proteins, that has helped people lose weight and lower blood sugar levels, but while it has those beneficial effects, on some people, it’s an extreme diet that misrepresents itself as healthy. The keto diet is very high in fat. […]

Your favorite foods contain MSG, which is making you fat & ill

MSG, monosodium glutamate, enhances flavor, so it’s added to a lot of foods. Whenever I ate something with MSG, my throat and ears would itch, and my outer ears would turn bright red. I tried to avoid it whenever possible, but one time, I had soup at a Chinese restaurant, and had to run outside […]

Weight Loss Desserts, really!

  Yes, you can have your cake and eat it too! You can lose weight and still eat cookies and fudge, but not all sweets are equal. The majority of desserts at restaurants and stores contain sugar and dairy which increase inflammation, and flour and gluten that can lead to leaky gut syndrome, and chemical […]

what athletes are doing to improve in their sport

If you’re an athlete, you do anything you need to make yourself more powerful, stronger, and faster…your career depends on it. Some athletes do cold therapy, take steroids and/or a myriad of legal, and illegal substances to have a leg-up on their opponents. A new Netflix movie titled, “The Game Changers,” showed athletes, like Arnold […]

why listing exercise on food labels is a bad idea

The reason why I discourage my clients from inputting their exercise into apps like MyFitness Pal, or estimate the amount of calories they burn, is because it’s inaccurate. People overestimate the amount of calories they burn doing exercise, and underestimate the amount of calories they eat. This is one reason why it’s difficult to lose […]
