got [Insert Type of Milk] milk?

We didn’t have it too bad when we were kids.  We had cartoons, toys, and milk break.  The hardest question we had to decide was, “Chocolate or White?”  Well, for me it was anyways, and I almost always went with white milk (because I genuinely liked the taste of white milk, not because I was a weird kid or anything...), which then presented the question, “Skim or 2%.”Yeah, back in the day…

Can you trust the calorie reading on cardio machines?

The only way to know the accurate calories that you are actually burning on any cardio machine like the Curve, the elliptical trainer, row machine, or bike is to wear a heart rate monitor with a chest strap.  It actually reads the accurate number of calories you are burning.  Do you realize most cardio machines over estimate the calories burned by 30 to 40%?  A machine will estimate calories burned based on a 150 pound person if you press quick start.  In addition, even if you put in your own weight, the machine is off.

Like exercise, diet and nutrition is not "one size fits all," but is unique to each individual.

Don't Drink Your Calories!

If you are trying to lose weight, then I am sure you are focussing on what you are eating on a regular basis, measuring each gram of cereal, monotoring your carbohydrate intake, etc., which is great, however, how many of you are actually paying attention to what you are drinking? Here are some facts about the different things we drink on a regular basis: A 12oz can of soda has 39 grams of sugar and 140 calories or 9 3/4 teaspoons of sugar! A 8 oz redbull has 27 grams of sugar and 108 calories or 6 3/4 teaspoons of sugar!
