How To Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

How to avoid holiday weight gain


This is the least you will weigh all year.

How does that sound? Awful if you ask me. The fact is that Halloween unofficially kicked off what some call "The Weight Gain Season".

Cornell University study recently determined that "In the U.S., weight patterns begin rising at Thanksgiving and peak around Christmas and New Year's." 😳

Exercise...The World's Best Medicine

Exercise, how to love exercise


What if I told you that you in just 30 minutes from right now you could feel better, think more clearly and improve your health. Does such a magic bullet exist?

Yes. It's called exercise. If you go for a 30-minute walk, right now, I guarantee you will feel better. Simple as that.


Not only is it good for you physically but it also helps your brain. Ever notice how your best ideas seem to come to you when you're going for a walk? There's something to it. It also boosts your memory, improves your concentrations and slows cognitive decline.

Tory Burch Saddle Bag Review

I'm having a saddle bag obsession. Not the "Oh crap, it's bikini season and my thighs look like pillows!"

More like, "I need one of those chic, timeless crossbody bags" for summer summer.

Cuyana Leather Laptop Unboxing & Review

I bought the wine-colored sleeve. Watch my video for a review!
Why are all the office and work accessories either butt-ugly bulky black or too cutesy?

You know what I'm talking about: they're either overly masculine or too dorm-girl feminine.

Finding chic, stylish yet functional accessories that speak to professional women is tougher than finding a skinny margarita that actually tastes good (and doesn't give you a hangover). PSST: Here's a good margarita recipe.

Cuyana's Leather Laptop Sleeve helps you organize your work life elegantly.

Super Simple Diet Tips: Put Down Your Fork To Lose Weight


Did you know that setting down your fork between bites during a meal is one of the most effective (and simplest) ways to lose weight?

This works because it forces you to eat more slowly. Eating slowly is important because it takes your brain 20 minutes from the time you start eating to send signals to your stomach that you're getting full. There are a ton of studies to back this up.

In fact a 2014 TCU study found that whether you're overweight or not, participants who ate slowly were significantly less hungry 60 minutes after the start of a slow meal than after the start of a meal during which they ate rapidly

8G Greens Superfood Supplement Review

8G Greens, 8G Greens Review 8G Greens Superfood Supplement Review, 8G Greens Tablet Review

While a $12 bottle of green juice is great once in a while, it's not a practical solution for people who work, travel and are running around all day. It also gets expensive. 8G Greens Superfood Supplement is a phenomenal solution. 


You can carry the little tube of 10 tables with you anywhere you go. You simply drop them into a glass of water and they dissolve, Alka Seltzer-style, into a tangy, citrus drink that is really tasty.

GlyDerm Face Lotion Lite Review

GlyDerm Skincare Review
Two of my favorite GlyDerm products! 

Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that the should be in your anti-aging arsenal.

It has the smallest molecules of all the alpha hydroxy acids, meaning it can penetrate the skin deeply and easily. In turn, it's an effective way to treat fine lines, acne, blackheads, dull skin and more.

I love GlyDerm's suite of products featuring glycolic acid, particularly their Face Lotion Lite, which I wear under my sunscreen or tinted moisturizer during the day or under my Hydrotone Lite face cream at night.

Why Lean People Don't Diet...And Don't Gain Weight

how to get naturally slim, mindlessly slim

Want to stay lean and healthy? Don't diet.

Severely restricting your calories isn't a longterm weight loss solution. You absolutely cannot stay sane or fueled on 1200 calories a day or on some wacky diet that only includes bacon and beef.

Restrictive diets don't work.

Cornell University's Food and Brand Lab recently concluded that people who have maintained a healthy weight throughout their lives (not gaining more than 10 pounds over the course of their lives) didn't diet. 74% of them reported that they never or rarely dieted. 92% DID say the were conscious about what they ate.

Parc Güell, Barcelona

Every January, I look forward to the New York Times' 52 Places To Visit feature. For 2016, Times editors consider places that will be particularly compelling to visit over the next 12 months. What makes a destination compelling? Something happening in it like a museum opening, a historical celebration and the like.

5 Delicious Low-Cal or No-Cal Alternatives To Soda



I spent 15 minutes on the phone last week with my BFF talking her off the Diet Coke ledge. She is trying to cut back on soda in 2016 and says going off of it is about to kill her. She is having caffeine withdrawals, she misses that wonderful Diet Coke fizz and gets bored with water.

I feel her pain. I was a soda addict in the 90's and early 2000's. When I worked for the Dallas Cowboys we had free sodas all throughout Valley Ranch. I would drink two or three Diet Dr. Peppers and a Diet Mountain Dew every day. The whole 'diet' thing didn't do squat for me. I was still fat.

When I started scaling back my soda consumption and, not coincidentally, eating better the weight started dropping off.

I am not gonna lie. My favorite drink, to this day, is a Cherry Diet Coke from JD's Chippery in Dallas. There is something special about that cherry syrup they use. I could drink one every day but you, me and everyone in between knows that a daily soda habit isn't good for you. To that end, I limit my consumption to one delicious drink a week.

There is no disputing the fact that water is the best beverage out there. I love water but sometimes we all just get tired of it. Whether we're stuck at work and need something for that 3pm break or simply want a more interesting alternative to drink when we're running errands, water all day every day can become monotonous and, in turn, has us craving a Coke. Fortunately, there are some awesome low-calorie or no-calorie beverages you can drink in place of water and soda without damaging your waistline.
