Maybe slow and steady wins the race, but you get to the finish line thinner/fitter if you start fast. Last week a study released from researchers at the University of Florida.

Cheating on the gluten free diet

How I Was a Cheater at the Gluten Free Diet

Yup, I was a cheater. When I was diagnosed with celiac disease, I cheated on the gluten free “test.” How is this? What the heck do I mean? I didn’t cheat in the sense you may be thinking. I didn’t, and don’t, eat any gluten foods. But I was cheater in the sense that my […]

Walk, Type, and Burn Calories-Seriously.

Remember the old “pat your head and rub your belly” trick? Try it again, now, just for fun. Go ahead, I’ll wait. Now try it, but rub your belly slowly. Don’t think about it too much, just let your hand move. Got easier to pat your head, didn’t it? I promise you I have a […]
