A simple definition of homeostasis: maintaining relatively constant internal conditions.
I needed a very simple explanation to be able to explain why 10 ounces of something like shown in this photo can result in an additional 2-3 pounds on the scale.
I know you know what I am talking about. You take ONE bite of something and everything else that day is clean, yet you have an unexplained substantial rise on the scale. You think to yourself, how can that happen?
I have done my best with clients that are […]
I was working with a client once and she was going through a particularly difficult time. At one point there seemed to be an apex of sorts, and I asked her to come up with an intention for her weight so that despite everything she was going through, THAT INTENTION at least would be something to strive after.

Fortunately, I can still get them at my neighborhood Publix. I made the mistake recently in buying their 8 oz bag instead of the 2 pound bag and I have to admit I regretted it!
I have only recently discovered these magnificent beauties, so will be sharing more and more recipes as I become more […]
I had no idea, but did you know that Salsa is considered the number one condiment in the United States? According to Food Product Design magazine, as of December 2000, salsa replaced ketchup as the number one condiment in the US!
Salsa is one of those things that everybody has their own recipe as to what they think is best, however, I felt it important to provide you with a base that you can tweak on your own.

Make sure you pay attention to the notes at the bottom of the […]
