 7 fitness & weight loss hacks no one tells you

I am a huge fan of scary movies — not gratuitously violent films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre – but more of the Jurassic Park, Cloverfield and, more recently, the Lights Out, variety (if you haven’t seen it, and can afford to skip a night of sleep, it’s a “must see”).    It makes no…

How to achieve your ideal weight (it's not what you think)

5 Carbs that speed weight loss (seriously!)

As I’ve mentioned in prior posts, I worked in the food business for many years as a restaurant pastry chef and bakery owner.  I admit, I love the irony.
