Are “Organic” Packaged Foods Better For You?

Who doesn’t love the convenience and the taste of many packaged foods? Heck, the packaging is often alluring enough for us to make a purchase alone! (possibly influenced by your kids pleading for it!)    But, even though many packaged foods now have persuasive sounding labels on them like ‘healthy’, ‘natural’ and ‘organic’, and may even contain some organic ingredients, can we trust that they’re a healthier choice than their non-organic counterparts?    And, should they have a place in our everyday diets?    Let’s take a look underneath those persuasive labels and find out.  How Do Packaged Foods Stack Up Against Real, Whole Foods?  Well,…

Top 3 Reasons Why Your Intense Workout Could Be Causing Weight Gain

With the rise of Crossfit workouts, box-style and circuit training gyms – HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) has been rising exponentially in popularity. And rightly so.   HIIT workouts involve working at a high level of intensity for a short period of time, followed by a period of rest. Lather, rinse, repeat.   These interval-style workouts can not only boost your metabolism, lower your blood pressure, and improve your brain function, but they also do it in half the time of a typical full-body gym workout.    But with all the hype around HIIT, we wondered if these type of workouts were truly effective as a weight-loss…

Is The 80/20 Rule For Nutrition & Exercise A Myth?

You may have heard that abs are made in the kitchen…  Or you may have eaten an extra piece of dessert because you exercised that day, so you feel like you “earned” it dammit!  In order to see results at the gym, lose weight or even maintain overall health, we’re told that it’s an 80/20 balance. Meaning 80% of your results comes from the food you eat and only 20% of your results come from your workouts.  But is this actually true? …that food is THAT much more important than exercise when it comes to our health and our results…

Detox Diets and Body Cleanses: Are They Even Safe?

Detox diets…body cleanses…colon cleanses…bowel cleanses…  You’ve probably heard all of these terms used in reference to “ridding your system of unhealthy toxins” — but what do these terms actually mean?   Do you really need to be on a ‘detox diet’ or ‘cleansing’ your body?   Are programs and products marketed as detoxes and cleanses even safe to do?  To start us off, all of these terms get a LOT of hype in the media, and people tend to use various terms interchangeably, which makes it especially confusing for consumers.   So what IS the difference between a Detox Diet and a Cleanse?   Generally,…

How Exercise Impacts Your Energy Levels

 When you’re completely exhausted, the last thing you want to do is lace up your shoes for a workout. But if you’re tired of being tired all the time, you may want to rethink the idea of regularly exercising.   Exercise is one of the most powerful tools we have for increasing our energy levels and you don’t need to do a lot to reap the benefits.   In fact, a University of Georgia study found that performing 20 minutes of low-intensity exercise could decrease fatigue by up to 65%!   Physical activity as simple as walking, yoga or a leisurely bike ride (for only 20 minutes!) can do so…

I always thought that if I wanted to lose weight I would have to give up tasty food. I had tried every kind of weight loss program after having my two babies and I truly believed that if I ate as little as possible it would be helpful for me to achieve my goal – I was wrong! When I first had my free consultation with Terri she told me I was “eating too little” and that was causing my body to store fat. I was skeptical but desperate so I decided to try the 10 Weeks To Wow! Weight…
