10, 100-calorie, healthy snack ideas

Most of the time my blog posts practically write themselves. I’ll think of a topic while doing cardio, or when I’m in the shower or otherwise have no access to any writing implement or recording device, leaving me at the mercy of my rapidly diminishing memory.  If I still remember my brilliant idea by the…

10 key questions to ask yourself for faster results 

I don’t remember much about my colonoscopy from a few years back, which is probably a good thing. But after I came out of the anesthesia my doctor looked at me oddly when I asked him how I did. He told me everything looked fine and added, “You asked a lot of questions.” He did…

5 Simplest weight loss tactics ever

Before I get into this embarrassing story, let me say upfront I’ve never been a techie person. I can upload videos on YouTube, write this blog on my site and perform enough basic functions to give the illusion I can handle modern life. That façade got blown out of the water this past week in…

3 Non-negotiable keys to weight loss success (plus a bonus tip!)

I’ve never been a big negotiator, even at yard sales and swap meets where you’re expected to haggle. It makes me uncomfortable.  I’m sure this weirdness can be traced back to some childhood issue.

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…

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.

5 Everyday fat-burning foods

Unless you’re in a witness protection program isolated in some underground safe house, you probably know the summer Olympics are a thing in Rio de Janeiro right now. I admit right up front that I’m not really following the games. It’s not that I’m not interested (although, to be honest, I’m not a huge sports…

7 Weight loss tips from successful losers

At 57, some days I feel my memory is, well, a distant memory. The other day, for example, I was telling a friend about a famous artist who paints flowers that look like lady parts and could not for the life of me remember the artist’s name. I don’t know if my friend backed away…

7 High-protein, fat-burning meals on-the-go

As you may already know from my prior posts, I used to be a pastry chef. Worse yet, I owned a bakery. Yes, I admit I once worked for the Dark Side. Before you unsubscribe, stand outside my house with flaming pitchforks, and pelt me with cupcakes (not necessarily in that order), hear me out:…
