Almost the End: My last few Posts

Hello, beautiful human beings! I know, the title makes me sad too, but I’ve a tiny confession to make: this blog wasn’t something I ventured into on my own, but a simple project, an experiment if you will but with no hypothesis or tests; so I guess not really so much an experiment, but I…

Surviving the Holidays: Food Do’s and Don’ts

Everyone knows the feeling of upcoming holidays and what they mean; food. From Thanksgiving to Christmas,  even memorial day and fourth of July barbecues, there’s always a reason to eat. Here are a few ways you can survive the temptation, while still staying on track with your healthy eating and exercise: Do lay back on the carbs….

Fruit Fight!

We should probably have a little bit of a chat about fruit. Everyone says “it’s good for you!” and, “Oh you’re on a diet, have some fruit!”, but to be truthful, fruit should not be your constant go-to snack food if you’re trying to lose or maintain weight, and for a couple of reasons: 1,…

Calories- The Essentials Pt 4

There’s something that many people don’t understand about food, calories and intake versus energy out; calories, and the right amount of them, are a necessity. It’s imperative that we understand that less in doesn’t necessarily equal more fat or calories burned. Cutting just the right amount of calories to keep you satisfied and fuel your body enough is…

Sleep- The Essentials Pt 3

And finally, everyone’s favorite topic: Sleep. Getting enough sleep is absolutely an essential, not just for an effective workout but for a healthy lifestyle! Now of course you’ve heard the “get 8 hours a sleep every night, it’s what the body needs and blah blah blah” but this isn’t necessarily true; you have to do…

Workout Variety- The Essentials Pt 2

When it comes to your workouts, variety will be most essential in propelling you forward in progress. I can promise you this: No matter how much you change your diet, if you go into the gym or outside and do the same exact workout every single day, after a very short amount of time you will never…

Protein- The Essentials

Another short three part series! I’d like to do some ramblings about some of the most basic things you’ll need to make sure you’re getting enough of, and in the right way, to maintain a healthy lifestyle and stay on track with your goals. One of the things that I put above all else is…

Carbs! A short Blog Series: Pt 3, NACHOS.

Okay. Holy Grail. Nachos are the HOLY GRAIL of Mexican food for me, and if i smell them, it’s over, even if it isn’t cheat day. This is one carb-cluttered indulgence that I’ll never be able to shake. That’s right guys, I eat carbs! I eat junk! it’s real! My whole life isn’t at the…

Carbs! A short Blog Series: Pt 2, Sushi!

SUSHI! I may have lied in the last post, I might be more obsessed with sushi than anyone has ever been in their entire life. This is certainly a guilty pleasure of mine, and I say guilty because contrary to popular believe, most sushi or maki rolls carry a decent amount of calories. One California…

Carbs! A short Blog Series: Pt 1

Hello everyone! I’m going to do something a little different this week; a series of super short blog post talking about the thing we never want to talk about: carbs. Love them, hate them right? it’s intense, I know. I don’t show them any love here because I’m all about carb cutting, dairy cutting and…

It Takes Naan, to Know Naan!

Hello all and welcome back! Man, it sure feels like it’s been forever. ANYWAYS, Let’s, talk, Indian food. Honestly, if you haven’t yet experienced the beauty that is Indian food, I’m afraid you aren’t living my friends! It’s time for me to brag, because never have I ever in my life been exposed to so…

Water You Waiting For?

I think it’s time we had a little chat about water. Ahh, I’m feeling quenched and refreshed just thinking about it! But no really, in all seriousness, I want to take a quick second to write a short post about this beautiful entity that gives us life and why it’s imperative to a healthy lifestyle…
