effective weight loss tips

Over the past three years, I have had incredible success with losing weight and keeping it off. So it killed me when I came across an article the other day that was essentially telling people that eating five hundred calories of organic fruits and vegetables is basically no different than eating five hundred calories of steak with white bread and butter. What I have found to be common among the majority of these so called "health articles", is that rather than use their power to empower and inspire people, most of them leverage their power to instill fear and doubt; which I'm sure is exactly what their sponsors want them to do. By publishing this confusing, ridiculous nonsense, they are in fact turning a lot of people off to the very things that (I know for a fact !) actually help people lose weight! It's outrageous.

ten rules to make running fun and easy

When I first started running in the summer of 2009, I was definitely not the runner I am today. I was slow, I was inefficient, and like most beginners, I struggled to get through my daily runs. Over the past two years however, I have learned a lot about running. The majority of what I learned came from reading books and magazine articles. They gave me a lot of helpful pieces of advice that uniquely improved my running performance. These tips were invaluable, and I am grateful for the incredible people who took the time out of their busy lives to write down what they learned, so that people like me could benefit from them. To pay homage to them, I thought it would be nice if I wrote down a few things that I have picked up along the way that might benefit you in the future. So here we go! 1. Less is more. When I first started running, I was completely horrible at it. I had no idea what I was supposed to do. Naively, I thought I could just strap on a pair of running shoes and e
