5 Things You Didn’t Know About Fat

Jonny Bowden, PhD, CNS is a nationally known expert on weight loss, nutrition, and health. Not only is he a board-certified nutritionist with a master’s degree in psychology, but he’s also the author of fourteen books on health, healing, food, and longevity! His new book, Smart Fat, just came out, so I thought it was the perfect time to turn to him to reveal the five things we probably didn’t know about fat. Fittingly, his book has the fatty green of the moment, avocado, on its cover.

Chickpeas: Why You Should Be Eating Them and Some Seriously Unique Options

As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one downside to chickpeas; it’s easy to eat about 10 portions worth! So before I delve into the benefits and highlight some unique options, I highly recommend always portioning out your chickpea-based foods because while they come with a ton of health benefits, they are NOT a low-calorie food.

The Nutritional Deficiencies of New Yorkers vs. Angelenos

The Nutritional Deficiencies of New Yorkers vs. Angelenos

If you eat a balanced, whole-food diet, you’re probably getting adequate amounts of the vitamins and minerals your body needs to function. But if not (and this applies to the majority of the U.S. population), there’s a good chance you may be lacking important nutrients. “Even if you put the cleanest ingredients into your body, chances are that life forces get in the way of being on point every day,” says Kelly Boyer, founder of farm-to-table meal delivery service PALETA. “There are also environmental forces that get in the way; consider how and where your food was grown, which can also influence your nutritional intake. Soil quality, storage time, and processing can affect the levels of certain nutrients in your food. Additionally, your age and own health issues impact your body’s ability to absorb the nutrients in your food.” Unfortunately, in many cases, nutrient deficiencies can be difficult to assess, making it easy not to notice that you are developing symptoms until the deficiency has become pronounced.

Star Power: Small But Mighty Bags

Here’s a simple ode to the power of the bag. I’ve said a bag can make or break an outfit more times than I can count, and it seems a few celebrities of the moment tend to agree. Whether in clutch or crossbody form, these bags are petite yet potent, and their ability to elevate an otherwise ordinary outfit is proven, from slashed jeans to a sharp red suit.

Is There a Danger In Trying a Teatox?

Is There a Danger in Trying a Teatox?

If you regularly scroll through wellness, fitness, or beauty Instagram accounts, you’re very likely to have come across so-called experts lauding the benefits of various teatoxs, but I wondered how safe these really are after reading that many of them contain laxatives and can have detrimental effects if used for more than two weeks. They are also not regulated, so brands pretty much have free reign to make whatever claims they like. When it comes to weight loss, there really aren’t any shortcuts, and anything that sounds too good to be true…is! Otherwise we’d all look like Gisele! That said, there are seriously real benefits to drinking “regular” antioxidant-rich tea. Take for example Republic of Tea’s SuperGreen collection, which blends organic matcha, green tea leaves, and functional herbs. It includes Immunity, Serenity, Lean Green, and Brain Boost. The blends taste amazing, and while I can’t say they soothe my taste buds when I’m dying for a big piece of chocolate fudge cake, they do soothe my stomach after I’ve eaten three jumbo pieces!
