Summary

  • Fatigue

  • Sugar/Carb cravings

  • PMS

  • Waking throughout the night

  • Frequent infections

  • Shakiness

  • Nausea 

  • Irritability or anxiety

  • Stubborn weight

Borderline seems like an I'm-just-getting-older checklist, doesn't it? But just because an ailment is common or normal for you, doesn't mean it's actually normal.

Summary 

Sugar alternatives. They seem like a good idea... Some boast they don't raise your blood sugar. Many have zero calories. Sounds like the perfect weight loss ingredient, right?

Episode 124: Is Sugar REALLY That Bad?? (Halloween Edition)

This was the first time I ever abused...

Summary

I can't count how many times in my career I've uttered the words, "No one is fat because of eating bananas."

I actually remember the first time I said it.

I had a client who ate virtually every meal out, who regularly drank 4-5 artificially sweetened ice teas at one sitting, and who was just getting into a workout routine.

They had a solid 60 pounds to lose and when I told them to eat a banana to fuel their workout their response was, "Don't bananas have a lot of sugar??"

Honestly, it hurt my...
