iStock_000003490927_ExtraSmall

I designed my Sugar Impact Diet to work in any situation, whether you're stranded in an airport or visiting your in-laws. At the same time, I know how challenging finding a low-sugar impact meal can become when you're traveling. To complicate matters, food intolerances and sneaky sugars lurk everywhere in restaurant food. Chefs are notorious for slipping egg into that innocuous-sounding chicken dish or "glaze" that otherwise-healthy wild … [Read more...]

Designing the Perfect Chipotle Meal

IMG_1457

I've long been a fan of Chipotle, the fabulous fast-food-gone-upscale chain that conveniently allows you to customize your meal. Chipotle is inexpensive, flavorful, fast, and - dare I say - when you order the right thing, healthy. At least I think so.

10 Foods to Put You in the Mood

Green is good

"Go for the oysters," my friend said over dinner, continuing the discussion about ultimate foods that put you in the mood. Indeed, oysters have long been considered an aphrodisiac, probably because of their high amounts of zinc, a mineral that contributes to sperm production and sexual health. Curious, that night I researched and found a study that showed when two amino acids - D-aspartic acid (D-Asp) and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) - in … [Read more...]

ZFULFILLING-TVDMBB-PL-2

You probably don't think about this often, but consider for a moment that you have 10 times more bacteria than cells in your body.

When you eat a high-sugar impact diet, suffer chronic stress, complete antibiotic … [Read more...]

iStock_000005730814_Large

  Let’s level up. Most detoxes or cleanses are simply semi-starvation diets. Detoxification might become a nice “bonus,” but be honest: your friend and maybe even you are starving yourself - I mean, detoxifying - to get a coveted body before beach season arrives. You’ll probably initially lose weight - note I said weight, not fat - but your metabolism will soon come to a grinding halt to compensate. During the process, you’ll become … [Read more...]
