Time for Change

Time for Change

You want to live a long, adventure filled life. You want to see your kids grow up, play with them and your grandkids. You want to spend more time doing the things you enjoy than time at the doctor’s office. You’d rather spend your money on doing things or buying things you really want than on medications, and doctors’ visits.

Turning Away from Diet Mentality

Turning Away from Diet Mentality
  1. Has the scale ever truly been your friend?

  2. Does it give you a nice comforting hug if it doesn’t give you the number you were hoping for?

  3. Does it check in on you throughout the day to make sure that it hasn’t upset you too much?

  4. Do you ever feel like a good number on the scale can give you permission to eat outside of your healthy choices and an upsetting number send you in a down hill spiral of not caring what you are grabbing because does it really matter anyway?!!!

Seasonal Eating

Seasonal Eating

While gardening isn’t for everyone, eating fresh fruits and vegetables definitely is! Every plant has a season, and every season has certain plants that grow best during those months. Grocery stores sell quite a few foods all year long as they have access to foods from all over the world, and this is great! I love being able to buy all kinds of foods throughout the year. But there are definitely benefits to buying more seasonal foods.

Diet, Exercise, or Both?

Diet, Exercise, or Both?

Diet and exercise. While these are often paired together, which is more important? Are both necessary?

Recent studies have shown that energy restriction through diet results in similar weight loss to diet plus exercise, while exercise alone results in lesser weight loss (1, 2). For many people skimming over these results in their doctor’s office magazine, dieting might seem like the path to take. But they’re only seeing half the story.
