Half Day Diet Review

Nate Miyaki founded the Half Day Diet in 2015, which makes this company less than credible from the get go, due to its short time on the market. The basic overview of this diet is set on the notion that you can implement dieting into half of your day, while ignoring the other half of your day in diet terms. Once you implement a healthy diet to only half of your day, it is essentially tricking your body into burning fat the entire day even if you consume carbs. Nate’s promise to his customers is to eat carbs, yet lose weight fast.* He aims to educate customers about when to be on a low-carb diet, and at what […]3
Fastin Diet Pill Review

Fastin Diet Pill Review

Fastin Overview Fastin diet pills hit the market in 2008, and are distributed by a company called Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals. Fastin is most commonly known as phentermine (its generic name) and acts as an appetite suppressant aiding one to lose weight. People who are obese, and have not seen success with diet and exercise alone use this drug to get their weight under control.

Flabs2Abs Review

Flabs2Abs Review

Flabs 2 Abs is a 30-day body transformation program that offers strength training exercises, plus cardio and nutritional advice. Brothers Matt and Craig Lewandowski founded the company in 2011, and their headquarters are located in Indianapolis, Indiana. When initially creating their product, they were looking to take a different approach to weight loss than the rest of the market. Their approach is rather different, when right on the website they are marketing “Burger 2 Abs” saying you can eat all the burgers in the world, and still have a six-pack.* This not only makes me feel nauseous, but it leads me to believe these brothers really don’t have your long-term health in mind. To see their Better Business […]1

Better Choice: Oven or Pan Frying vs. Deep Frying

Better Choice: Oven or Pan Frying vs. Deep Frying

In a world of flavor, there is nothing more dissatisfying than being subjected to bland diet foods. I am going to state the obvious, and say that deep-frying is so much unhealthier for you than just pan frying your food. If you have a Dutch oven, sticking it on low all day inside the oven is also a great way to ensure flavors are plentiful in your next meal. When you deep-fry food, you are adding in a lot more unnecessary oil and grease to your food, which in result adds on a lot of extra calories. Simply adding your oil to the pan and cooking on the stove top will reduce the salt, fat, and grease almost […]1
Salt

Could Cutting Salt Do More Harm Than Good?

For many years we have been told by health professionals, researchers, different organizations and even our mothers that eating too much salt with our food can be bad for our health in many different ways. But recent studies have shown this might not be completely true, and cutting down too much on the sodium we add to our daily diet can actually be worse for us than not cutting back at all. Before getting into the subject it should be said that, as per the World Health Organization (WHO), a healthy adult should consume between 1,500 and 2,300 milligrams of sodium each day to maintain proper cardiovascular function. In reality, the average sodium consumption of Americans ranges between […]1

Can Intermittent Fasting Be The Answer To Good Health?

Can Intermittent Fasting Be The Answer To Good Health?

Fasting almost always is associated with starvation. There are different fasting methods that people have used for centuries, sometimes not of desire but because they have been forced due to scarcity of food. Intermittent fasting is an eating plan where you cycle between eating and fasting, and it is important to understand that intermittent fasting is not categorized as starving. There are many different intermittent fasting methods but they all mostly tell you when to eat and when to rest, and less about what to eat.  During your fasting time you are only allowed to consume foods that are zero calories. With that in mind, we all know that every food has at least some sort of caloric value therefore the only thing […]0

Many of these dishes you are ordering for lunch or dinner can be the equivalent to an entire days worth of calories! Yikes!

Weight Loss Tip #47 Mini Meals

Weight loss can be a confusing and frustrating journey for some people, and then for others it can come easy. No matter what your situation is, many studies have shown that if you eat fewer calories than you burn then you will naturally lose weight, but be careful not to starve yourself in the process. When you are constantly hungry, it causes your metabolism to slow down as well as tempt your body to binge eat. Overly hungry people tend to make the wrong nutrition decisions, as well as overeat unintentionally. If you are able to eat smaller meals throughout the day, you will then be able to stabilize your insulin levels as well as your blood sugar […]0
