Cleansing your Body

By : -

Most of us eat more than we should, take in more toxins than we’d like, and are subjected to many other things, like pollutants, that we’d rather avoid. Furthermore, most of us carry around a lot of undigested food in our systems that comes from eating more than we can process. Essentially, a fast will […]

Sleep and Your Diet

By : -

A very active time. Deep sleep is where your body works the hardest to repair itself. You need nutrients to make these repairs, but it’s better if you aren’t mucking up the process with digestion. This is why you hear that you shouldn’t eat too much at night. It’s best to eat early to allow […]

Skip the appetizer

By : -

By definition, an appetizer is intended to get your appetite going. But when some appetizers contain more than 1,000 calories, that’s not an appetizer—that’s a full meal and more! If you do want an appetizer, ask your table if they’d be willing to split one of the healthier options like a salad, bruschetta, ceviche, or […]

If you find yourself raiding the fridge at night even when you know that you’ve eaten as much as you should for the day, brush your teeth. If you’re still hungry after that, try having a cup of tea or drinking a glass of water, because thirst can often be mistaken for hunger. If you’re […]
