A Glass of Wine a Day Keeps the Doctor Away… Or Does It?

Posted by McKenna Smet on Oct 1, 2017 2:00:00 PM

When was the last time you measured out a 5-ounce glass of wine? That’s right, it turns out there are more than three glasses of wine to a bottle. In fact, most 5-ounce pours have 125 calories: over 625 calories per bottle.

Let’s say you’re having just 5 glasses of wine each week – and that you’re adhering to that strict 5 ounces. You’re going to gain a pound (or 3500 calories) in a little over a month. That’s just from drinking wine.

OVEREATING? Maybe it's not your willpower!

Posted by Judi Samuels, M.A. on Sep 16, 2017 7:00:00 AM

Summertime is a great time to watch your weight when there is a plentiful supply of healthy fruits and vegetables, grilled foods, and active outdoor living. When you succeed at eating healthy foods and avoiding junk, you probably attribute the bulk of your success to your ability to resist unhealthy impulses, the sheer power of your mighty will. Likewise, when your healthy eating disappears, and you start to regain the weight you lost, it’s your inability to exert self-control that takes much of the blame.

Foods That Help You Burn More Calories

Posted by Judi Samuels, M.A. on Sep 10, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Everyone would like to burn more calories faster and better, but is it actually possible to boost your metabolism and lose weight just by eating?  It is, if you eat the right kinds of foods at the right times, in the right amounts, and by eating those foods that burn more calories by chewing and digesting them.
