I am fascinated everyday by this amazing machine we call the body. The hundreds of mechanisms and reactions it employs for survival is intriguing. Nowhere is this seen more than when it comes to nutrition and body weight.
Anyone who has embarked on a weight loss program has experienced first hand one of the most robust survival defense mechanisms the body possesses; Defense of the Energy Storage System.
Our biology is designed for scarcity yet our environment is one of abundance.

Kendra had the biggest crush on Barry in middle school.

There are more myths and misconceptions about strength training than any other area of fitness. While research continues to uncover more and more reasons why working out with weights is good for you, many women continue to avoid resistance training for fear of developing muscles like Arnold Schwarzenegger. You’ve heard “Women can’t build muscle like men. They don’t have enough testosterone." This is, in fact, only partly true.

When your thoughts turn to St. Patrick’s Day, green beer, corned beef and cabbage usually come to mind. But many other foods long traditional in the Irish diet – potatoes, oats, fish, stout, cabbage, and cheese - rank among the healthiest.
Cheese is a very well-liked food in Ireland. The Emerald Isle has always been known for its lush meadows, perfect for providing the best environment for cows that produce Ireland’s tasty farmhouse cheeses. Cheese is an excellent source of protein and calcium, and the fat in cheese contains the powerful cancer fighter conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Irish cheeses are ... Read More

I have noticed a trend in my office over the past couple weeks – clients frustrated with weight loss plateaus.
I quickly checked my calendar and thought, “right on time!” It is 8 eight weeks into the New Year and the New Years Resolutions of losing weight is losing its luster.
