jj edamame

Next time you visit your local health food store, count how many soy foods you can find. Soy ice cream, soy eggnog, soy burgers, and of course ubiquitous soymilk: the list is endless. Manufacturers have puzzlingly positioned soy as a healthy alternative to meat, dairy, and other foods. As a result, people develop a halo […]

JJ burst up stairs copy

““The chips and dip got me,” a friend recently confessed. “I had done so well all week. Then Saturday came, I was enjoying some pre-game pinot noir, and next thing I knew my hand was double-dipping the cheddar-bean dip.” And here’s the kicker: “I don’t even like corn chips!” Tailgating is among autumnal activities that […]

Fat Rat

“Really?” I asked sarcastically, pointing to the plastic pumpkin loaded with miniature candy bars and other high-fructose corn syrup concoctions that often pass as food. I looked around and noticed several bowls strategically placed around the waiting room. Yes, even my doctor has become involved in the all-candy-all-the-time frenzy that begins in early September. “Kids love […]

“Back-to-school sales start earlier and earlier every year,” my friend said last month, thumbing through a Target ad on her iPhone. She sounded discouraged, but I happily reminisced about summer’s end. Even as a kid, I enjoyed September’s return. Labor Day sent a solemn salute to summer, and shorter days meant getting back to routine and […]

My Secret Weapon for Optimal Digestion & Fat Loss

ZFulfilling-TVDDIG-CF-2T

A very health-conscious friend recently traveled to Italy. “How could you visit Rome and not eat pasta?” she asked. Well, it turns out she ate plenty of pasta on her trip, but – here’s the kicker – she didn’t gain weight. I wanted to know her secret. “I bet you did a lot of walking,” I said. […]

No More Excuses: Get a Fat-Blasting Workout in Minutes a Day

U

“I didn’t get to the gym this morning,” my friend said, exasperatingly flagging our server for a coffee refill. She proceeded to tick off a series of completely valid excuses why she couldn’t go.
