    by Tasha Shayne Lean and fit or overweight and out of shape, cellulite plagues so many women (and some men as well). While there seems to be a million and one physical exercises, cosmetic procedures, and creams that claim to get rid of it, without proper nutritional support, the cellulite sufferer is bound to keep suffering. Why? Because, cellulite is the result of weakening connective fibers beneath the skin. Cellulite is the result of this tissue losing its elasticity. So, when you’re trying to rebuild those tissues, you have to provide them with the right nutrition to do so. Just…

    by Tasha Shayne As they say, beauty starts from the inside out. You can spend thousands of dollars on different oils and lotions and serums for your hair, skin, and nails, hoping any of them make a difference in your beauty regimen, but the truth is that most of them won’t work without proper nutritional support.  Want to know what does work?  Your skin isn’t dull because you didn’t put shine serum on it; it’s dull because it doesn’t have the nutrients to make it lustrous. Same thing with your nails — they’re not breaking or peeling because you didn’t paint them this week;…

    by Tasha Shayne NutriPlex Formulas, Inc. With small farms proven to be more sustainable, productive, and environmentally sound than their industrial counterparts, it’s clear that they are the backbone of America. Unfortunately, being a small farmer equates to having less land, which means small farmers receive much less funding from government subsidies than large, corporate farms do. Funding for large farms allows them to sell goods sometimes at an even lower price than its production value, even though they are inefficient and unethical in their operations, whereas smaller farms are…

This chocolate cake includes a cup of sourdough starter in the batter, which is awesome for those of us who keep sourdough starters for bread and are sometimes looking for ways to use up the cup of starter that gets discarded when feeding our bubbly little pets.

A couple serious issues can really put a stop onto your workout program: dehydration and injuries.

Many people don’t drink enough water on a daily basis as well as before, during, and after exercising. Thirst is the first sign that your body has had a significant loss of body fluids and replenishment is necessary. Other symptoms…

I figure my job is to support that as much as possible.  I give him the building blocks, and he grows from there.

    Einkorn, an ancient grain and the first wheat cultivated along the plains of western Asia, is my favorite grain for baking and I bake with it readily in my kitchen – using it for homemade breads, pies, pastries and cookies.  Its sweet nutty flavor and characteristic golden crumb, owing to its high carotene content, are two of the reasons why I’ve come to love it. While a nostalgic romanticism no doubt plays into my love of ancient and heirloom wheats like einkorn, there’s other factors too as einkorn is richer in beta carotene and lutein than modern wheats, and its gluten profile also…

Despite the foodie movement, only 31% of dinners in 2014 were made from scratch, 6 in 10 dinners were planned within an hour of eating. 2.

    Maryann Tomovich Jacobsen, MS, RD
    28 Aug 2015 | 9:23 am
    School has started for us and it’s time to tighten up the meal routine. I only made some minor changes to my dinner rotation this time around. In San Diego where I live, it stays hot well into fall. I will add some cold weather food the next time around. Some new faves include pollo asado and  pasta primavera with garlic and roasted summer veggies. And I’m not sure why it has took me so long, but I’m making my own pico de gallo. It’s so easy to make and awesome for Mexican night. It’s even better the next day with some eggs and beans! See my Facebook post for…
  • The 5 “Hows” of Packing School Lunch for Picky Eaters

    Maryann Tomovich Jacobsen, MS, RD
    20 Aug 2015 | 7:54 am
    It’s the time of year for lunch-packing. Parents of picky eaters may dread the thought of coming up with a balanced lunch for their kids, day in and day out. If you serve the same thing, you feel guilty for the lack of variety. But if it’s something new, it comes home uneaten. I can’t claim to know what your picky eater will want in terms of food ideas. But I can offer some ideas on how to go about packing your child’s lunch. So here are the 5 hows that really can make packing lunch for the picky eater more rewarding, effective and full of variety. 1. Don’t…
  • 5 Ways to Boost Your Child’s Independence in the Kitchen

    Maryann Tomovich Jacobsen, MS, RD
    14 Aug 2015 | 6:07 am
    I’m reading How to Raise an Adult by Julie Lythcott-Haims. The book details how parents today do way too much for their kids. There are various reasons for this, including nonstop extracurricular activities and school work. The problem is when kids leave home, they know how to get an A on a test and kick a soccer ball, but lack the vital life skills they will need to use every day. And one of those important life skills is knowing their way around a kitchen. Before reading this book, I had been getting my kids (6 and 8) in the kitchen more. But now I’m motivated to take this to a…
  • How to Make Grilled Vegetable Kabobs in 5 Easy Steps [Recipe Included]

    Maryann Tomovich Jacobsen, MS, RD
    6 Aug 2015 | 8:20 am
    I love grilled vegetables. I have tried a few different vegetable kabob recipes but wanted to focus on a base recipe for my summer rotation. After doing some research, I found some secrets to grilling veggie skewers to perfection. Here are the top 5: 1. Soak the skewers: The first time I made used skewers to grill vegetables someone asked if I soaked the wood skewers first. I was like, “why?” Then I was told that if you don’t soak them in water first they can burn. So I quickly got on it! So don’t forget to soak wood skewers for at least 30 minutes before adding the veggies. 2.

    Maryann Tomovich Jacobsen, MS, RD

    When Big A turned two, I realized that making two meals for dinner wasn’t working. But getting her to the table right as she was entering the picky stage was no easy task. What kept our family meals going in those early days was having something at the table she accepted. It helped her adapt and come to the table without much of a fuss. Last week I reviewed some helpful rules for family dinner, of which one was “There will always be something on the table you like.” In this post, I want to dig into that one a bit deeper. For me, it’s no longer just about providing a thing or…

     Imagination is necessary for healing any dis-ease because it's part of the creative process The creative process is not just in the realm of the arts but is part of the fabric of all human endeavor including the one that is closest to home called healing   Healing is in reality an art form and we are the artists Such a perspective requires the recognition that we are the creator When we assume an artistic touch to our healing we have to become responsible since we are the architect of our project of healing  It demands taking charge so that victimhood is not acceptable  …

    Dr Bill Dean
    23 Aug 2015 | 12:10 pm
    Healthy rest with chronic dis-ease is essential in healing because it takes more energy to heal  Any chronic dis-ease from a complex of labels that we use can often be associated with sleep disruption  But even then an apparently "healthy" person can have a sleep disturbance due to the chronic Vata imbalance in our culture(hurry hurry hurry up indicating the mobile quality) Proper and sufficient sleep is essential for optimal health and without it, body and mind can suffer, particularly if chronic dis-ease is present  But what actually is proper rest has a lot to do with…

    The energy science model of dis-ease states that except for trauma every dis-ease or imbalance begins in the GIT(gastrointestinal tract) Since this is the case we can appreciate how important foods become in the evolution of dis-ease and conversely how important foods become in the management and healing of dis-ease  Correct food selection appropriate for own's energy constitutional makeup along with incompatible food combinations become foundational in any dis-ease healing Short term acute dis-ease processes can be readily corrected over brief(months) periods of time Obviously the…

    While naturally occurring yeast in our nutrition is healthy, in the West we have become excessive users of yeasted products primarily in the form of bread products and pastry This adversely affects the bowel flora or the microbiome of the gut because yeast overgrowth is a definite complication This is why yeasted bread products are listed in the No column in the energy science nutritional formats Energetically the sweet taste soothes the nervous system Even though we grow up with the sweet smell of oven baked bread and yearn for the sweet taste in its many different forms unfortunately the…

    Soothing Stress and Anxiety When it comes to a stressful life we are often led to believe it’s just the way things are or we are somehow not enough if we cannot handle the stressful lifestyle. What’s really going sometimes feels like the frog in the pot metaphor. If you drop a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will of course frantically try to clamber out. But if you place it gently in a pot of tepid water and turn the heat on low, it will float there quite placidly. As the water gradually heats up, the frog will sink into a tranquil stupor, exactly like one of us in a hot bath,…

I have a few teachers in my life, so it's back to work for them too. I often feel that September is a time to get back in the kitchen, get back into activities, and get re-organized as lake time comes to an end.

    My sister-in-law invited me to free yoga in the park on Sunday (from The Better Good, led by OneYoga). It was a beautiful morning and I felt lucky to be outside and have my baby at home with my husband. I think I even managed to do a decent job of being in the moment and focusing on the class.Of course, my mind did wander, and I found myself reflecting on the class (while I was in the class). That's pretty good mind wandering if I say so myself - I wasn't thinking of to-do lists (as I often do) or other places to be, or the people around me. I even reflected on the idea that we did a lot of…

    There may be certain words, phrases, quotes, or terms that resonate with you and stick with you. Sometimes I read a quote and it feels like it was written for me, or that the person was saying it to me; it feels like that's what I needed to read/hear in that moment. Quotes definitely inspire me, give me perspective, and help me stay on my path to becoming the best version of myself. At times I wonder (and my husband wonders) where my ideas/thoughts come from, as he and I think very differently about a few things.I've been thinking about moderation, minimalism, and mindfulness lately.

      Switchel, also called Haymakers’ Punch, is a refreshing drink that originated in the Caribbean. It is a tasty, slightly effervescent beverage made of water mixed with vinegar, sweetened with molasses, and sometimes lightly flavored with ginger. Honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup are also used in various locally adapted versions. Switchel made its way from the islands to the American colonies becoming a popular summertime drink by the late 1600’s. Gradually over the next 200 years, “switchy” became the traditional drink of choice to serve to thirsty farmers…

    I read an article the other day that really got me thinking – Sorry Kid, But First-Borns Really Are Smarter.  The article details how a study of 90 pairs of siblings in high school showed that first borns had higher IQs and were more perfectionist while later borns had higher grades and were more extroverted. The article also suggests that perhaps the reason first borns are smarter is because at some point in their lives, they were the only ones that received their parents’ attention. I thought this was a very incomplete explanation as the eldest having the higher aptitude (and…

    Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist
    22 Aug 2015 | 5:08 am
    The French people are no fools. As a culture, France seems to see through clever marketing ploys concocted by abusive corporations intent on perverting the laws of honest capitalism for their own profit. And, the French people seem to catch on long before most other countries raise a collective eyebrow. In 1992, for example, more than two decades before Americans finally started to turn their backs on fast food, French citizens were protesting in the streets against McDonalds. The activism spilled into violent confrontation as protesters lit a bonfire outside a McDonald’s and again…

    Last weekend I celebrated a friend’s almost 40th birthday at a restaurant here in DC called Proof. Although the food was decent, the best thing we ate that night was a fun cauliflower side dish. It was a crispy cauliflower tossed in a delicious Tahini sauce. I could have just eaten a few bowls of that dish and nothing else.  I think we all could have.  It was that good. This restaurant has been around a while and after a quick internet search, I discovered it is known for this popular lebanese-inspired cauliflower side.

        After giving a talk, someone asked me how to keep their energetic boundaries. Basically, how to not take on others’ pain, anger, resentment, pessimistic outlook on life, or really, whatever negative mojo is running through them.   This is a key question because when we do take on others’ “stuff,” we’re way more likely to be living in a burnt out, overwhelmed, and disconnected space. And it’s in this space that we ignore our true wants and desires and give into the quick fix, to numb or to fill a void – i.e. the cake or pizza for immediate comfort; the…

  • Algae: The Next Frontier?

    Spencer Blohm
    22 Aug 2015 | 10:55 pm
    What Is Algae? Algae is a type of photosynthetic organism that dwells in the sea. There are thousands of different species, so it’s hard to generalize about them all, but they’re typically found in areas that aren’t suited to agricultural production, and some of them can be eaten. It’s become one of the most buzzed about plants in recent years thanks to it’s many uses in food and energy. So what exactly is it about this organism that has people rushing to study it? Well, it has the potential to boost our health and reduce consumption of fossil fuel. So, let’s get the…

    Poisons are all around us. No matter how much we try to eat organic food or use organic products, there is one area that is often overlooked: household cleaners. Hazards of Current Household Cleaning Products The Environmental Working Group asserts that only 7 percent of all cleaning products disclose their ingredients completely. Many of these products contain poisons, carcinogens, and chemicals that can trigger an asthmatic attack, so it’s important to have full disclosure. If you look at common household cleaners, many contain chemicals that have been implicated in immunotoxicity,…

    It’s the season for container gardens. Whether you only have room on a patio or balcony or just want to keep your garden closer to the kitchen, container gardens are a great way to practice your green thumb and keep a healthy variety of produce on your table. Black-thumb gardeners should feel a sense of security when attempting to grow kale. They’re one of the easiest cabbages to grow. Kale is a cold weather crop, so you can keep it growing on your balcony for longer than many other crops. When to Start? Always running behind schedule? Since kale does so well in the fall, you can wait…

    There are a lot of things about the meat industry that many people are not aware of- from the chemicals that are used to enhance size to the living conditions of the animals that are born to be slaughtered for meat. Do you truly know where the meat you eat comes from and what went into that animal before it was killed? Below, you will be able to review five different documentaries that were created about the meat industry, in order to answer some of these questions. Food Inc. This film was released back in 2008, and it was filmed in order to shine a light on corporate farming within the…

    Rabbit Rabbit!! It’s September 1st and for many of you, it feels like a new year with school starting, routines changing and feeling the need to get back on track. While I am not really a fan of New Year’s resolutions, I thought I would take advantage of your motivation and love of “jumpstarts and challenges” to fire you up and get you living well and healthy. So set a goal. Make it reasonable, extremely specific and in line with where you want to go. It doesn’t have to solve all your concerns and fix everything – just needs to get you headed in the right direction. See below for…

    JBNUT
    28 Aug 2015 | 4:38 pm
    A common frustration and concern I hear as folks learn how to eat better or pay more attention to food is that they are now “hyper-focused and obsessed” with what they are eating…”is this healthy?” “I am reading every ingredient, I am asking waiters what is in all the food I order, I am looking at menus before I go to restaurants, I am thinking about food differently now that I know where my food comes from…am I obsessed? This can’t be good…right?” It is tricky as of course, I do not want to spark disordered eating or a clinical eating disorder, but many are…

I saw on the Today Show a segment on how breakfast should be skipped to lose weight…my heart skipped a beat, worried about how this was going to play out on TV…and thank goodness afellow dietitian, Keri Glassman, RD spoke beautifully about the importance of nutrition and breakfast. Phew! Watch the segment here. Reasons to eat breakfast:…

    Have you seen the movie Inside Out? I just loved it. Such a creative perspective on emotions and the mind. It got me thinking about how many individuals I know who struggle with emotional eating. I want to highlight two points that were sparked from the film that relate to food and emotions. 1. We eat for joy…we eat for sadness…we eat for angst…we eat for anger… Many of us struggle with emotional eating, but we often cannot see that we are doing it. It is a skill to be mindful and present of our emotions. Ever since I saw the film, I keep picturing those characters when…

After this I may drive out to LA for a little bit (road tripppp!) before going back to Brooklyn at some point in September. There are a few things I need to take care of in LA, i.e. going to the new Bulletproof Coffee shop in Santa Monica.

    It’s hot.  You’re thirsty.  You want something cool – or maybe ice cold – to drink. Check Out The Calories A lot of cool, refreshing drinks come with a hefty dose of calories. You might be surprised how many are in a drink you’ve been having for years. According to CSPI (Center for Science in the Public Interest), carbonated soft drinks are the single biggest source of calories in the American diet.  It’s easy to forget about the calories in sugared sports drinks, sweetened ice teas, juices, and alcoholic beverages. Alcohol isn’t a caloric bargain – it has 7 calories per…

If you’re nodding your head, you’re a dashboard diner.

    Penny Klatell, PhD, RN

    The picnic food that’s sitting in your car might turn out to be a big problem.  Packaged food  — like crackers — usually do fine in high temperatures, but meat, dairy, cut-up fresh fruit, salads, and prepared foods are another story. Perishable food may contain bacteria that can cause food-borne illnesses. Food that sits in a temperature danger zone while in your car, at a picnic, or campsite can cause those bad guys to multiply exponentially. Most bacteria don’t go crazy below 40°F or above 140°F. The temperature range in between 40 and 120 degrees, known as the “Danger…

Around 215 BC the mathematician Hero invented a type of vending device that accepted bronze coins to dispense holy water. Vending eventually became economically viable In 1888 when the Adams Gum Company put gum machines on New York City’s elevated train platforms to dispense a piece of Tutti-Frutti gum for a penny.

    Atli Arnarson, PhD
    13 Aug 2015 | 7:00 am
    Nutrients in plants are not always easily digested. This is because plants may contain antinutrients. These are plant compounds that reduce the absorption of nutrients from the digestive system. They are of a particular concern in societies that base their diets largely on grains and legumes.

    I found this great quiz that I thought is fantastic in helping to evaluate if your immune system needs a boost! If you answer yes to 3 or more of the following questions, your immune system can use a boost: 1. Are you always tired or suffer from insomnia? 2. Do you get long lasting chronic infections, colds, respiratory problems, or allergies? 3. Do you suffer from chronic stress, depression, anxiety, or panic attacks? 4.

    Don’t let cough syrup give cherries a bad rap. One taste of these juicy, summer rubies, and you’ll be declaring a new favorite fruit in no time. Fresh cherries have a pretty short season here in New England (peaking late June through mid July), but they are so deliciously addicting that most people can put down several weeks worth of cherries while simply standing in front of the refrigerator. Not that I know anything about that. Delicious enough to enjoy straight out of a bowl, cherries are also the perfect natural sweetener, and that’s how I’m showcasing them in this chilled,…

    Like any self-respecting locavore, I aim to feature seasonal farmers market produce whenever possible. But alas, my penny-pinching food budget has the final say, which is why I tend to avoid picking up groceries until every scrap of food in the cupboard has been eaten. That brings me to this chocolate cranberry milkshake. More indulgent than fresh fruit, but more nourishing than a chocolate milkshake, this cocoa-cranberry beverage is the perfect balance of nutritious and delicious.

Nonetheless, I’m over the moon about my purchase! So far I’ve only biked to Tatte Bakery in Beacon Hill, and done part of the Esplanade and the Battle Road Trail in Lexington, but I have lots of bike trips in the works (including Burlington, VT and the Cape Cod Rail…

    In a world where so few of us are obliged to cook at all anymore, to choose to do so is to lodge a protest against specialization—against the total rationalization of life. Against the infiltration of commercial interests into every last cranny of our lives. To cook for the pleasure of it, to devote a portion of our leisure to it, is to declare our independence from the corporations seeking to organize our every waking moment into yet another occasion for consumption. It is to reject the debilitating notion that, at least while we’re at home, production is work best done by someone else,…

  • The Role of Vitamin B6 In the Body

    Tiffany Zhu
    20 Aug 2015 | 5:03 pm
    Vitamin B6 was first discovered and isolated in the 1930s. It is water-soluble and exists in six different forms. They are pyridoxal, pyridoxine, pyridoxamine and their respective phosphate bonded forms [1]. Of them, the pyridoxal form called P5P is the most important as it is the only form that our bodies can utilize [2]. Whenever we get vitamin B6 in any form other than P5P, our livers have to do the work of converting it into P5P. However, many people’s livers have trouble making the conversion. This means that no matter how many foods and supplements high in other forms of B6 are…

    For many years scientists have been astounded by manganese as there are many varied effects for its deficiency and toxicity. The name, originating from the Greek word for magic, matches these characteristics of manganese. Our bodies can produce manganese at levels below the recommended dietary intake or RDI. We supplement from food but research indicates that 37% of Americans still do not have the RDI of manganese [1,2]. Manganese deficiency has versatile effects. Some of them include infertility, bone malformation, weakness, and even seizures. When the RDI of manganese is adhered to however,…

    Many classic activities during the summer include beaches, carnivals, island getaways, and other events under the sun. However this time spent outside greatly affects the condition of our skin. UV rays can cause sunburns and constant sweating dries skin. Sunscreen may prevent sunburns for some people but doesn’t stop the sweat. Lotion will only temporarily moisturize. This leads to a greater emphasis on diet to repair dry or damaged skin. The best foods to eat this summer are those high in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, vitamin A, selenium, zinc, and generally high in antioxidants. Omega-3…

As with anything, the more work one puts into their nutrition, the more they can get out of it. Depending on where you are at, adjusting when you eat and what you eat can go a long way.

Hylete was founded on three principles: 1) Train to push yourself both physically and mentally, 2) Compete so as to improve yourself, as well as those around you and 3) Live to be healthy in mind, body, and soul. I couldn’t agree more. Even better is that they make great products. It took me a while to find a company whose clothing line I felt comfortable training in, but better late than never. I am also happy to report that I am officially part of the…

    There’s no surprise how passionately I can get into a skillet. They are too easy to make, eat, and clean. I’ve gone Italian, Mexican, French, cookie, you name it — but now I have a new one for you: American. Actually, I don’t quite know how American this one is, but since it has sweet potato, bacon, and herbs, I’m calling it American. Yes, you heard me right, sweet potato, bacon, and herbs. And eggs. Duh. While the other skillets are perfect for anytime, this sweet potato skillet is killer for post workout. If many of you know me well, you know I am a weirdo…

    Supplements are sometimes looked at as sacrilege in the paleo template, but that is not how I see them. Essentially, if it can be used for benefit by your body with no negative consequence, you would be a fool to not utilize it. I’m writing a series of blog posts on supplements so people can have the information they need to make the decisions they need if the benefit fits their goals. The first article was the definitive guide on creatine. The second supplement up on the Supplement Series is beta-alanine. Because these conversations can get pretty technical, I’ve added human translations…

    So I post all of these awesome recipes for dips, salsas and guacamole then I get all of this hate mail that there is nothing to eat it with that is “paleo.” Oh, not so fast, internets. This recipe goes to show there are tasty ways to enjoy your once memorable chips. Don’t worry about the “paleo chip” distinction. This recipe churns out paleo chips that are not soggy, not disgusting — they are oven roasted plantain chips. Why oven roasted plantain chips, you say? Plantains are a lot like bananas, except they have more nutrients and starches per plant. Why is this desirable? The…

    What is acai, anyway? Maybe you’ve heard of acai bowls being a superfood or reserved for the super trendy hipster crowd, but fear not! These little berries are packed full of antioxidants and can be make into a smoothie bowl way cheaper than you think. I ignorantly dismissed acai for years as I assumed it would be full of sugar. Rookie mistake. This micronutrient dense berry has barely any sugar in it, making it an easy choice to supercharge smoothies with keeping simple sugar counts low. Native to Brazil, acai is not found in the berry form in the U.S. or many other countries. Instead you…

    Dr. Anthony Gustin
    20 Jul 2015 | 10:33 am
    It is a pretty safe bet to say that guacamole is one of the best sides you can add to a dish. You can eat some (plantain) chips, toss on eggs, add to soups and stews and it provides a huge punch of healthy fats and micronutrients you wouldn’t normally get. I’ve been known to smash a fairly healthy helping at a time. I have even been known to recieve death stares at Chipotle when I ask for a little more, even after the the robotic droning of “guac-is-$2-extra-is-that-okay” from the employee. Making guacamole at home is certainly the more economic way to approach…

Nutrient deficiency is a part of the high blood pressure puzzle that I’ve always found quite fascinating.

Research shows that having sufficient levels of the following 4 nutrients is important for maintaining a healthy blood pressure. Similarly, if we are deficient in these nutrients, managing blood pressure…

The right probiotics may help assist with weight loss. But most new health foods are seriously oversold. In fact, even many household foods long considered healthy are now coming into question.

Flax might not sound as sexy as chia but these brown seeds pack most of the health benefits of their round black counterparts at a much lower cost. They too are extremely high in heart and brain healthy omega-3 fatty acids as well as fiber. The main difference between the seeds is that flax has a harder outer shell. Therefore, it needs to be ground to make it easier for your body to digest it.TIP: I like to grind my own in my coffee…

I had attempted to quickly throw together a dinner that used ground turkey that wasn’t spaghetti and meat sauce or meatballs.

    1 Sep 2015 | 5:57 am
    Can we please talk about the elephant in the room? Or rather the elephant in the coffee cup? The recent media buzz about some stores adding real pumpkin to their coffee drinks, and/or removing caramel coloring, has instantly reminded me why I became a dietitian over 20 years ago. I cannot stand it when fear, hype, and pseudoscience dominate the nutrition headlines, instead of sound science and strong evidence.

  • The Food/Face Connection: Do Some Foods Give You Acne?

    Megan Meyer
    31 Aug 2015 | 9:13 am
    It’s no surprise that diet and nutrition impact overall health. But what about something a little more specific, like acne? Acne is one of the most common dermatological conditions that can creep up in puberty and last well into your 50s. I'm not going to lie: Looking at that age range is pretty disheartening. Just when I thought I was over the “tween/teen” problem, I could be facing a few more decades of this?! It got me thinking about ways to help prevent pimples from popping up and wondering if there really is a connection between the food we eat and our faces.

    Shady Labib
    4 Jul 2015 | 4:40 pm
    One of the common questions that I get a lot in my practice, is: “How much should we eat?” or “When should we stop?”My clients are usually shocked and taken by horror when I deliver the news “I will not tell you how much to eat for the moment, rather, I will guide you through  developing a healthy eating lifestyle. The first thing is to start by eating slowly and stopping at 80% full, all of which by following your own internal indicators (body cues)”.I have already written in the previous articles that the other option to this would be counting on other “External…
