No one is perfect. I eat foods that are bad for me too (Mexican, anyone?). Certain circumstances arise and sometimes you just can't control what is put in front of you. The trick is to eat in moderation and make the best choices you can. No diet works. No diet pills work. YOU have to do the work...

Minerals are essential for optimum health. Due to the Standard American Diet, many of us are lacking in these vital nutrients. Eating too many processed foods or foods grown in mineral-depleted soils can result in a lack of minerals in the body which can lead to an onslaught of health problems as well as food cravings. Minerals help to regulate a variety of processes in the body including helping to create enzymes, hormones, skeletal bones, skeletal tissues, teeth and fluids.

Lately, I have been thinking about the concept of “getting real” with ourselves. This is a tricky concept because for many women, it can be taken to the extreme...
Editor´s Note: Jill hits the nail on the head here. You can't hate your body into changing. Too many women have come to me over the years thinking that if their bodies change, they will like themselves more and be happier. The women that don't lose this mindset tend to be the one's that lose weight and gain it back and are in a constant state of diet and weight loss jail or are disgusted by themselves for where they are. They never reach a happy, content and balanced life. We all deserve balance. Take Jill's advice. You will be glad you did.
