I was a compulsive eater out of my mother’s womb. The youngest of eight children in an abusive home, I was born knowing that the world was definitely not safe for me. I used food to feel safe. It was that simple. I could not stop eating. When I was not eating, I was thinking about food...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: In this article Laura introduces you to Yum Yum Dishes. They are bowls, plates, etc that help you maintain food portion control simply because of their size (AND great design). You fill them with your meal/snack and eat in moderation... when the dish is empty so is the Yum Yum.

Exercising outdoors is one of my favorite things to do, and I highly recommend it. You’ll soak up all that fresh air and vitamin D from the sun and engage all your senses. In addition, outdoor workouts are free — no gym memberships or class fees to worry about...

 

Editor’s Note by Bess Coble: This week’s fitness tip is from Denise Austin, an Everyday Health expert.

Editor's Note from Melanie Webb: Medicine balls aren't just for meat heads and gym rats anymore. Start with low weight and add a medicine ball to dynamic and functional exercises for added challenge and great results!

by Dr. Al Sears

“Back pain" isn’t always what it seems. It’s often an issue with muscles and bones that aren’t in your back at all...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: According to Dr. Michael Roizen, about 65 million Americans have back pain, making it the second most common reason for medical visits. The good news is Dr. Roizen estimates about 95 percent of lower back pain can be treated without surgery by doing exercises that center around the pelvis and abdomen. This week’s fit tip is from Dr. Al Sears, one of the leading anti-aging pioneers. He explains why back pain often stems from problems with the hip flexors, the muscles that allow you to sit. To learn additional tips about eliminating back pain, check out this article from Jesse Cannone.

If that headline caught your attention, chances are good you’ve battled with “bat wings,” or upper body flab, or a little extra jiggle in your wave. Well, it’s time to change all that, once and for all. It’s time to embrace your arms...

by Carolyn Hansen

Over the last 20 - 30 years there would have be literally thousands of diet plans and programs available in bookstores, television infomercials and on the internet. Many of these reduce food intake to a point where the body goes in a protective mode called the 'starvation mode'...

Stretching properly is a little more technical than just swinging your leg over a park bench. There are methods and techniques that will maximize the benefits and minimize the risk of injury.


In this article we'll look at some of the most common questions people ask about how to stretch properly. Questions like: Which muscles should I stretch? When should I stretch? Should I stretch every day? Plus a whole lot more...

Have you ever noticed a difference in your muscle tone before and after a workout? The way that your body looks more toned and tightened after that last exercise?...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: A push-up is one of the most complete upper body exercises one can do and Taylor shows a quick and effective 4-pose sequence. If you’re a beginner (and to keep from being injured), begin with a modified push-up pose where the knees are left on the floor, graduating to full push-up (as shown in this article) as soon as your upper body strength can support your torso.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by James D’Adamo, ND, DNB

I’ve been an advocate of menus and eating plans based on blood types and sub-blood types as outlined in my books, but just as our eating regimen should be based on our blood and sub-blood type so should our exercise program for optimum health...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Dr. D’Adamo is the originator of the famous Blood Type Diet and in this article he explains how blood types also affect the type of exercise that is optimal for our health. While I have not personally tried exercising according to my blood type, after reviewing his article I found I do tend to gravitate towards the same recommendations he gives for my type.

Exercise & Fitness


by Penny Hoff

Cankles often accompany thick ankles. I personally was born with mine although they were cuter as an infant in diapers. But I turned them to my advantage by becoming a fitness instructor. Fitness teachers are expected to be "solid" and "muscular". My cankles are what my big brother used to call tree trunks. Cankles are genetically like a big nose -- meaning you just have to learn to live with them...

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy. The problem is that there’s only so much glucose that you actually need. The rest is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and in your muscles. When glycogen storage reaches full capacity, all the extra carbs are converted into fat...
