As someone who is ultra-busy and on a budget, I’m always looking for ways to both eat healthy and save some money, so more often than not, I brown bag it. My kids often take sandwiches to school also. I’m guessing I’m a lot like many of you in that respect. So I figured I’d give you some tips on how to pick the healthiest sandwich bread for you and your families.

We’ve been told for years that the number one reason weight-loss diets fail is because “we” wish to see immediate results. At least, that’s what I’ve been taught. And then you’re told by everyone that you’re just being “lazy” or you’re “cheating” if you’ve kept at it for several months and you’re still fat. This kind of shaming language only makes you feel even worse and discourages you because you feel helpless.
Anyone who is struggling with their weight; whether it has been their whole lives, or a few years; has their own story behind their weight gain. And no matter how painful the story is, many people around you still look at you like a lazy slob. So….if you’re working out, eating “right”, and still fat, I’ve got some news for you. According to Dr...Read More

Ghosts, goblins and ghouls are not half as scary as the nutritional nightmares our children face on a candy-centered holiday like Halloween.
With childhood obesity at epidemic levels in this country, parents are understandably concerned about limiting the amount of sugar and empty calories in their children’s diets.

Compact clumps of cholesterol, Calcium or bile pigments can start to accumulate into stones within the gall bladder or bile ducting. When these substances crystallise it is this effect which causes gallstones. The crystals cling to a protein fragment and slowly build upon each layer until it becomes a sufficient size to cause the human body problems. Gallstones frequently go unnoticed until such time as they start to cause pain. Symptoms of gallstones range from slight upper abdominal discomfort to significant pain accompanied by vomiting. In the more severe cases surgery is usually required to remove the stones or in extreme cases, the entire gall bladder.

Eating right is the one sure-fire way you have of naturally controlling your weight for the long-term.

Why does this work so well? Well, it’s all about treating your body right and understanding that it is simply a machine that needs gas to go. Give it the right gas and everything will be fine. Give it the wrong gas and it can’t work so well. It really is that simple.

When you bring home a puppy or adult dog and you find his pet diet appears to be causing him problems; it may be that he is sensitive or intolerant to certain ingredients in his pet food.
