Nicole Winhoffer, best known as Madonna’s longtime trainer, is poised to be the next big name in fitness. Currently, she can mostly be found in NYC where her downtown classes attract a loyal cult following who love her upbeat energy and sweat-inducing moves.
It’s no secret that eating chocolate and french fries tends to only cause temporary delight (it’s not for nothing that they say “a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips…”). But that’s not all. Food can greatly affect our mood, and it goes way beyond “food guilt.”
When it comes to sun protection, sunscreen is a non-negotiable, but you can boost its effects by loading up on certain foods that have been proven to have SPF power too. To find out more about what these foods are, I turned to Stacy Goldberg, MPH, RN, BSN, and Lexi Sinclair of Savorfull.
Like most things in life, we have to consider skin holistically. There isn’t one magic food that will give you glowing skin. Stress, hormones, sleep, the products you’re using, your diet — these are all factors contributing to your skin’s current state and appearance.
As much as I wish the old “you are what you eat” saying wasn’t true (as I daydream about Levain cookies), there’s no doubt about it. The upside is that many everyday “ailments” can be cured by small dietary tweaks…
Soreness is good. It means you actually worked hard during your workout and now it’s time for your body to repair itself. I spoke with Eric Orton, the famous run coach in Born to Run, a few weeks ago and he told me something that surprised me, however.
I hate running, but once a week I go for a six-mile run with my trainer. Somewhere around mile two I feel like a dying horse and start complaining. If it weren’t for my trainer, I’d probably never make it past mile three, but every week that I cross the six-mile mark, I feel such a sense of accomplishment.
