Your New Favorite Lateral Shift: Healthy Nutella


"If the sub-zero temperatures don't kill me, fourth-quarter taxes will," my Chicago friend recently texted me. "I need healthy comfort food, STAT." January can quickly become a brutal month, and at the end of a cold long day you probably want something sweet, satisfying, and guilt-free as you curl up watching Sex and the City reruns and contemplate hibernating until late March. Sometimes nothing less than chocolate will do the … [Read more...]

7 Strategies to Intelligently Detoxify


  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...]

Why I Want You to Avoid Resolutions in 2015

JJ salad or dessert

Damn the consequences. It's New Year's Eve and you’re going to dive into that gooey piece of caramel praline cheesecake after your three-cheese lasagna and garlic-butter infused baguette. Tomorrow, you'll start the Sugar Impact Diet. Familiar scenario? That feast-famine mentality only sets you up for failure. Fast, lasting fat loss isn’t an all-or-nothing scenario, and good eating habits don’t happen at the spur of the moment. That’s why … [Read more...]

Stop Wasting Money on Ineffective Weight Loss Supplements


"There goes another 30 bucks,” my friend lamented over a green tea date several months ago. I understood her frustration. She had tried the latest celebrity-endorsed “miracle” weight loss supplement that, despite the manufacturer’s claim to burn belly fat fast, fattened her credit card bill but did nothing for her waistline. Over the years, my friend has tried nearly everything on the market with zero success. As she discovered, many … [Read more...]

Fiber becomes your secret weapon for fast, lasting fat loss, but let’s be honest: Most of us think of fiber in terms of staying regular, or as I more irreverently say, giving you poops to be proud of. Let’s talk about poop for a minute. You need to have one to three bowel movements a day. They shouldn’t be urgent, and you shouldn’t have to run to the bathroom every time you eat, but you should be having them. Fiber is your golden ticket for … [Read more...]
