When it is too good to be true: Zero calorie foods

As the saying goes, “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is… especially if it tastes like chocolate.”

PH Healthy Life

On our usual stroll through the grocery store something wonderful in the health foods/supplement aisle caught Preston’s eye. It claimed to be a zero-calorie, all of my dreams coming true, chocolate peanut spread (basically zero calorie Nutella..ish). Quickly we snatched it off of the shelf to look at the nutrition label; there was no way this could be zero calories! But there it was: Serving size 2 tbsp, calories – 0. Upon further examination the two main ingredients were purified water and vegetable fiber, both of which are zero calories. Everything seemed to check out. We couldn’t wait to get home to try it. This could be a game changer in my diet; I was already planning to put it on everything I ate.

IMG_1758I wanted to crack it open in the car, but Preston convinced me to hang on until we got home. By the time we pulled into…

Everyone could use a little more sleep

Three reasons to get more sleep… while drinking less tea. A tough one for me.

PH Healthy Life

Needing your beauty sleep is more than an excuse to lounge in bed; upping your zzz’s really does help with weight-loss and management! Sleep is crucial in maintaining a healthy life because of the brain activity, hormone regulation, and physical recovery that occurs while you are snoozing. Go ahead and set that alarm back for a healthier, happier you!

If you consider evolution’s impact on our ancestors’ metabolism the role of sleep becomes more clear. In times of excess people of the past could spend more time sleeping (because they didn’t need to hunt, forage, stress about staying alive), but when food was scarce they would need to spend less time sleeping and more time looking for food in order to survive. In short, the human body adapted to be more efficient (burn less calories) to compensate for the extended hunting and activity time.  Now when we get less sleep…

Twelve healthy eating myths shattered…


Do you believe in everything that you hear? Do you really think what our elders say is always true? Have you ever confirmed their myths to be true in real sense?

Everyday you might get some nutritional advice from your family, friends, relatives, or media. But are those advices relevant? Or maybe they are just passed from someone to you without any context to it. In my experience, you should be critical of all the information and research the topic if you really want to get to the truth.

Size Matters

Size matters… as they say. And it does when it comes to sensible eating. An interesting article with eight tips from ‘About That Fit Mom Life’.

About That Fit Mom Life

Now that I’ve got your attention, I’d like to take a few minutes to discuss something everyone loves to talk about… Portion control.

Portion Distortion

Over eating and portion control is an issue for so many of us. Today we’re served enormous portions at restaurants in comparison to the portions Americans received just a few decades ago.

PortionDistortionNearly every fast food joint around provides an option to “go large” for just a few cents more, couple this with the fact that most consumers are trying to find the best value for their money, it only makes sense to indulge. The problem is unless you’re splitting that meal with someone, you’re doing your body a disservice by loading up on extra fat and calories.

Size really does matter, when it comes to good eating habits, we need to be aware of proper portion sizes and familiarize ourselves with food labels so we know a true serving size.
