I recently wrote about my Golden Rules for fat loss and how to accelerate fat loss. The right foods create a stable foundation for fat loss, but other strategies complement and enhance that foundation. Let’s talk exercise here. As the heat cranks up, so should your workout routine. When I say crank up your routine, […]

JJ drive thru

This is a guest post by my friend Ocean Robbins, founder and co-host (with best-selling author John Robbins) of the Food Revolution Network.   Let’s face it, we have a toxic food culture. Big companies are trying to contaminate your food with pesticides, hormones, GMOs and chemicals. They want to sell you a bunch of sugary […]

JJ coconut milk

What’s your take here? Several readers expressed concern about higher sodium levels in some Virgin Diet Cookbook […]

JJ gut pain

“It happened on my way back from the restaurant,” my friend embarrassingly recalled. “I’m pretty sure that seemingly innocuous chicken dish I ate contained gluten, and gas and cramping followed miserable bloating. Talk about inconvenient timing: I had to ask my friend to stop at a Starbucks as she was driving me home.” Gas and […]

Gluten Free Starch Products

You probably read about the proposed US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) changes to the Nutrition Facts Label, which it claims will “better help consumers make informed food choices and follow healthy dietary practices.” Keep in mind these changes – the first labeling changes since 1990 – are proposed and still can undergo modifications.
