    Should You Dump Gluten? How Going Gluten Free Can Unlock Weight Loss, Energy, and Longevity

    What do Dunkin’ Donuts, Domino’s Pizza and Subway all have in common?

    Besides being fast-food chains, they’re among many large companies that have rolled out gluten-free food options in the last few years. You’re probably used to seeing the “special diet” section in Whole Foods, or even your local chain grocery store, but when corporate giants start paying attention to specific dietary trends, you can bet they are more than just a passing fad.

    You Are Good Enough

    ~~“Sherly, I got the part!” my client, Mary (not her real name), exclaimed on the phone, as she excitedly recounted the result of her audition for the pilot of a new show. I could almost see the tears of joy in her eyes.

    These tears were quite different from the tears of frustration she shed only a few weeks earlier while lamenting her “dying career” and how she was a “failure” and hated her life.

    Detox Tip #1: Start Green Have you noticed that green vegetables and fruits are the only recommendation that makes it into every diet book? Spinach, kale, arugula, and chard are rich in indole-3-carbinole, which is a natural detoxifier that controls how you regulate estrogen. Both men and women are at risk of estrogen pollution (fake estrogens from the environment – more on that in a future class!), and these hard-working greens help to tip the balance in favor of taking out the bad estrogens before they cause symptoms of estrogen dominance – including breast tenderness, cancer, moodiness, and weight gain. Other yummy greenies...

The first time I remember seeing him was when he appeared in a guest appearance on Happy Days.

    Although I went a little piercing and tattoo-happy in my college days, I’ve never been a huge fan of needles. I cannot watch needles puncturing my skin because I WILL get ill and I WILL pass out. Why would I consider acupuncture then, you ask? First of all, I’m all about alternative forms of medicine. I don’t particularly enjoy having to ingest prescribed medications full of manmade chemicals. Lately I’ve been a lot more aware of what I choose to put inside my body, and at the ripe old age of 24, my body needs a little more TLC than in previous years. I want to go on record as saying my acupuncture experience was my...

    Last week, I decided to undertake an incline interval workout routine during which I voluntarily jogged, sprinted, and butt-kicked my way up and down the virtual hills of a treadmill every morning, Monday through Friday. Which brings me to my apology: I’m sorry that this post is a bit belated; I was too busy nursing my legs back to the amount of strength it takes to hobble to my computer. Wondering why I decided to run incline intervals five days in a row? For starters, I get easily motivated sitting at a desk all day. I’m bombarded with fitness stuff all day, from my twitter feed to press releases, and I get this mid-morning...
