by Julie Revelant When I was in my 20’s feeling under the weather several times throughout the winter was my norm. Despite being young and healthy, my body was suffering with 80-hour work weeks at a demanding job, tons of stress, eating way too much sugar, rarely exercising, and not...

By Dr. Lisa Metzgar, PhD School is back in session, which means our children need good nutrition to keep their brains and bodies functioning properly all day. So many kids are being sent to school with no breakfast or on a sugar bomb. No lie…I saw a child walking to...

By Julie Revelant School has started and I’ll be sending my daughter to pre-school for the first time; I think I might be more excited than she is! I know she’ll love learning, making new friends, arts and crafts, cooking, and playing outside but for me, I can’t wait to...

By Julie Revelant Between the huge selection of health, diet, and fitness books, the popularity of gluten-free and Paleo diets, and the surge in health and fitness trackers, we should all be poster children for perfect health.

 By Lisa Meztgar, Ph.D. With summer comes tons of fun activities like backyard barbeques, beach time, family reunions, and vacations.

By Lisa Metzgar Apart from the dream-like vision of a slimmer “after” photo, dieting also brings visions of starving oneself, and feeling tired, weak and cranky. Why all the misery? The reason is that most diet programs involve radically cutting back on overall calories with the hope that you will...

By Julie Revelant All kids love their sweets but between candy hearts, chocolates, and special treats for Valentine’s Day (and every other holiday, really), kids today are getting overloaded with too much sugar. The result? Usually a kid filled-up with empty calories is super hyper, which leads to unpredictable behaviors...

By Julie Revelant Parenthood is a never-ending roller coaster ride. It’s filled with extreme highs and lows every single day.
