Is Not Getting Enough Sleep Why I’m Snacking So Much?

Is Not Getting Enough Sleep Why I’m Snacking So Much?

We all know that not getting enough sleep is bad for us. I’ve known it my whole life. I haven’t needed a research study to confirm it for me. After all, it feels awful while you’re lying awake at night watching the minutes and hours tick by. It feels even worse as you drag yourself around the following day. I don’t think clearly, can’t get motivated to do anything active, and am most likely to order in meals on days when I’m drained and not well rested.

Overeating Doesn’t Cause Obesity, but Your Food Choices Do

Overeating Doesn’t Cause Obesity, but Your Food Choices Do

So, it turns out that overeating doesn’t cause obesity. There’s been a lot of new research out there recently that has absolutely blown my mind. Holly recently blogged about how some pesticides can hold back weight loss so eating organic foods might actually give you an advantage.

How to Eat Dandelions and Why Give Them a Try

The Keto Diet Has Helped Me Stop Sugar Cravings

I never once in my life thought that I would be able to stop sugar cravings.  I have the biggest sweet tooth of anyone I know…except probably Holly. She really takes the cake (see what I did there). It was one of the things I was most hesitant about with starting my keto diet.

How to Know You’re Following the Wrong Diet for You

So, it’s my week to blog again and after Marley and I have both been struggling, I thought I’d talk about how to know if you’re following the wrong diet for you. After all, I’ve been testing out turmeric for weight loss (and I’ll get into that a bit in a minute) while Marley struggled a lot through her first week with the keto diet.

My First Week on a Keto Diet Plan

My First Week on a Keto Diet Plan

The keto diet plan is definitely more than I bargained for.  I give Holly credit for giving it a try, and I can see where there is a lot of room for error. I can also understand why she gave up. Am I going to give up? Not a chance!
