6 things you shouldn't eat if you want to lose weight

I hear sometimes people are complaining that they spent a lot of time in the gym working out so hard but they have not seen the result they want. But it turns out, they think they are burning a lot of calories because they did 1-hour cardio; they give themselves permission to eat A LOT. Or they just simply eat a lot of food that are not so good to eat. What are some of those foods that are not so good to eat if you want to lose weight?

1, Canola oil, corn oil, soy bean oil  all vegetable oils

Canola oil contains hydrogenated oils, which cause inflammation throughout the entire body disrupting your hormones and metabolism. And 90% of canola oil is genetically modified (GMO), which means they are hard wired with pesticides that cause cellular toxicity, which destroys your bodies metabolism and overall health.

Instead: Use coconut oil, grass-fed butter to boost your metabolism. Coconut oil is mostly medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). It has been shown that breaking down...

Why Modern Relationships Are Falling Apart So Easily Today

I am in the mood for talking about relationships today….I found this article “Why Modern Relationships Are Falling Apart So Easily Today” I’ve been divorced for five years and I find myself doing and thinking the things that this article is addressing. Basically, it sums up all that today’s relationships. There is a sweet lady I love who just turned 80. A couple of years ago, she lost her husband of almost 60 years from Alzheimer. She told me she got married so young, she cried every night in the beginning and called her mom and asked her mom if she could come home. She said she was so scared…..Now her husband is gone, and she told me that she misses him so much and she still loves him so deeply…..  This to me sounds like true love.

She didn’t have a choice to leave him, at least that was her reality and leaving him wasn’t even an option for her, But yet, she told me once she got to know him better, she started...

We know sleeping is important for us but do you know how important? I will tell you all about it today’s episode.

Why Women Should Lift Weights

I am pretty sure that you’ve heard that someone’s grandma or your neighbor fell and broke their hip or arm. When you wake up in the morning, all of your joints are stiff and your back hurts. If you are like me, you notice your metabolism is slowing down or almost nonexistent

Today I want to talk about why we need strength training now more than ever.

1, For your Bones

As we get older, your bones start to lose density and bone mass and becoming weak. Bone loss increases after menopause when estrogen levels drop sharply.

As a result, you may break your bones from a fall or even from sneezing. Studies suggest 1 in 2 women age 50 and older will break a bone due to osteoporosis, which is a bone disease that makes your bones weak and brittle. That is insane!

Like muscles, bones are living tissue that responds to exercise by becoming stronger. Weight-bearing exercise is the best for your bones because it forces you to work against gravity. Examples include walking,...

Why do you overeat at night?

Reasons why you overeat at night. ( It’s not your fault, don’t hate yourself eating the whole bag of potato chips!)

I hear so often that “I can’t stop eating a bag of potato chips, cookies, ice cream or whatever they are at night…..” I used to wonder why I wanted to eat a big bowl of Cheerios right around 10 PM. I ate clean all day, and I was feeling so good that I was doing what I planned to do. Then at night sometimes after dinner, I started to feel the urge that I needed to go to the kitchen and find something sweet, fatty and yummy. Of course, I was not hungry. Maybe little hunger whispering but nothing major. So over the years, I finally figured out why we get this urge want to eat at night and how to stop overeat at night.

Researchers show that willpower is not infinite. It wears out some point of the day. Your willpower is like a battery, it is full in the morning, and it slowly depletes by the end of the day. When you have to make...

How to avoid getting HANGRY

Hey, this is Tori with Kick-Ass Life with tori.com, and I help busy kick -ass moms who want to lose weight, get healthy and look good naked.
Have you been hangry lately? You were too hungry and got irritated and angry. I used to. Like when we went road trip, I got so hungry and started yelling my ex ” I need to eat now. Just stop whatever you see next one.” I was seriously angry at him for no reason.
Back then I was eating a lot of low-fat, high carb processed foods like a rice cake, pasta, and bread with fat-free butter-like spread. I was a sugar burner. What sugar burner basically is, when you eat food, your body digest carbs and turn into glucose and eventually it either goes into cells or Now I eat pretty high fat, Low carb; I became a fat burner meaning, my body knows to burn stored fat for the source of energy when no foods are coming in. Now I can easily go 12 hours without eating between dinner and breakfast. That was unthinkable back then. So...
