2017's most popular study claimed a high fat intake, including saturated fat, was linked with a reduced risk of death — not what the public typically hears.
I understand Lucy, because I've shared the same feelings about myself. When you have an eating disorder, the world can think you're perfect, but all you see are flaws. Let's not crucify her for it. Instead, let's use it as an opportunity to talk about how messed up the entertainment industry is.
Have you ever looked at the nutrition labels on a food product and wondered how to make sense of the information? If so, you're not alone! Food labels contain a lot of information, and it can be confusing to consumers.
"Metabolic dysfunction" is a seemingly innocuous term that may sound unfamiliar to most of us. But medical researchers now believe it's a root cause of the global epidemics of obesity and Type 2 diabetes -- which are destined to kill more than half the world's population over the age of 50.
Do you know your body's enemies? If weight gain is one of them, then it's useful to know exactly how it can get the better of you. Here's how: Our meal portions are too typically loaded with insulin-spiking processed carbohydrates. And we're conditioned to eat far too many of them. But why exactly do we indulge too much?
Adopting a healthier lifestyle is an active process; no one can force anyone else -- no matter how much they love them -- to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Your loved one has to be at least interested in having the "health conversation."

That's the curse with being a mom. In an instant we doubt everything we have done. We quickly blame ourselves. I know my little girl doesn't think she is fat. She heard it on television; and, like so many other words, she repeated it back. However, that doesn't make the moment less important. It doesn't make hearing her say that word any easier.

But, in an instant, it can be broken.
