The research goes back over 100 years, and it shows almost assuredly, that fat has it’s own metabolism, and the way or the reason you get fat has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH OVEREATING and everything to do with your genetics [...]

Is it a Miracle… or Just Hard Work?

Indecision is one of our favorite tricks to stay stuck. It helps us avoid the pain of “being wrong”. It keeps us safe and out of unfamiliar territory. Do you realize, as girls most of us were raised to seek perfection? It’s true. We usually got praise when we did things right. The boys got socialized to take risks. Is it any wonder as adults women are most likely not to apply for a job unless they possess 90-100% of [...]

Salad Bar in the Fridge

Today I offer you my simple, practical tip for delicious “fast food” in less than 2 minutes.   It's called “Salad Bar in the Fridge”.   It's probably not anything new, but if you have never thought of it for yourself, it's genius.   Start by purchasing several delicious, flavorful veggies at the store.
