Sugar is everywhere – particularly during the holidays, beginning with Halloween, through Thanksgiving, and long after Christmas, so it is no surprise that people are not feeling their best or feel simply rotten.
Sugar’s effects are very real and there is a reason for this: sugar is inflammatory. With an excessive intake, the body goes on …

Looking to drop a few pounds in time for the holidays? You’ve come to the right place. Drinking hydrogen-rich alkaline water doesn’t just hydrate and energize you – it can also help you to lose weight.
Molecular hydrogen has unique therapeutic qualities that can help to support weight loss. Drinking hydrogen water can – over time – help your body to metabolize fat more efficiently. Hydrogen water promotes good liver health, and the liver is your powerhouse organ when it comes to detoxifying your body and metabolizing fat.
What The Science Tells Us
In several clinical studies, scientists found that molecular hydrogen could be a factor in encouraging weight loss.
“The present results suggest the potential benefit
A new report indicates that enjoying our favorite beverage every morning might help us to lose weight. Well isn’t that some great news?
Brown Fat Facts
It’s all down to how coffee interacts with the fat deposits in the human body known as ‘brown fat.’ This type of fat – unlike other fat in the body – generates heat in response to the cold, by burning sugar and fat. This heat production has a stabilizing effect on blood sugar and burns calories.
The research team, led by Professor Michael Symonds, from the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom, wanted to see if coffee could have a similar effect.
Using stem cell and human test subjects, the team …
A traditional diet is kind of refreshing these days. It’s what our mothers – possibly our grandmothers – did to lose weight. In fact, it’s so old-school, that the out-of-fashion, traditional diet is starting to look a little… avant-garde.
But does it work as well as newer, shinier weight loss plans? Let’s find out!

Dr. Lori Shemek is BACK AGAIN to discuss her top 5 reasons why drinking water may help you lose weight!
1. Water Helps Metabolize Fat
Without drinking water, the body is challenged to properly metabolize fat and stored glycogen or carbohydrates. This process is called ‘Lipolysis’ and needs water for the first step called ‘Hydrolysis.’ Animal studies have shown that drinking water increases this fat burn process.
2. Drinking Water Helps Suppress Appetite
Drinking water can help stave off those pesky urges to snack and help stop mealtime overeating. In fact, research shows that people who drink two glasses of water immediately before a meal eat 22% less than those who don’t drink any water.
If you’re hoping to shed a few lingering winter pounds by the summer, then eating right will be on your radar about now.
There are a few foods that we tend to think of as being “healthy” choices that might be hampering your attempts to drop a few pounds rather than helping!
There’s no doubt that granola is a delicious thing to eat and can be full of good, wholesome things: nuts, oats, seeds and dried fruit, to name a few. Wholegrains are so good for us, with the potential to lower the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
However, that crunchy, feel-good bowl of yumminess might also be packing a sugary …
No matter how it’s dressed up or presented, successfully losing weight depends on eating the right things, in the right quantities for your body and level of physical activity. If you are consistently consuming more calories than you burn, then you’re not going be dropping a dress size anytime soon.
Indulge and Still Lose Weight!
All very simple in theory, but it’s harder in practice to eat “right” the whole time. Sometimes, a slice of pecan pie can reach places that a raw quinoa salad can’t.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could be disciplined for – I don’t know – some of the time and allowed to indulge a little as well …
