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 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,...

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...

Diet coke is used Aspartame which is equal and Diet Pepsi uses sucralose which is Splenda, actually Pepsi was using Aspartame till 2015 but they switched to Splenda which is one of the most researched ingredients in the world, with scientific studies consistently confirming its safety is used in Diet Coke and Pepsi and other no-calorie drinks.

White bread or wheat bread or no bread

Hey Everyone
This is Tori with kickasslifewithTori.com where we talk about healthy lifestyle, weight loss, beauty, and mindset.
Let me ask you a question. Do you guys think that wheat bread is better than white bread? People ask me all the time, and we are going to find out the answer today.
When you compare ingredients, it is almost the same, except whole wheat bread flour includes bran, germ, and endosperm where white flour contains only endosperm. Wheat bran provides fiber, and wheat germ contains fiber, minerals, and vitamins. Endosperm is basically starch. One thing you need to know is that white bread contains the same amount of vitamins and minerals with wheat bread, but they are from enriched wheat flour, meaning they are synthetic. Studies show synthetic vitamins and minerals are not as bioavailable meaning your body doesn't absolve them too well.
So real whole wheat bread is made from whole wheat flour. White bread is made from enriched wheat flour which they strip all the...
