    People are always trying to control their eating by substituting products advertised as healthy, for food they believe is unhealthy.

The first ...

  • Treat Sleep Apnea Through Weight Loss

    Obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA, can kill you. When a person with obstructive sleep apnea is asleep, their airway becomes intermittently occluded, or “blocked off”, resulting in them being unable to breath. Of course, they are asleep at the time, so when their body is struggling to breathe they don’t know it. It can be frightening to watch a person with OSA as their body chokes ...

  • The Summertime Smoothie

    Fruit smoothies can be healthy but can also hit you with a load of worthless calories. Fruit smoothies from fast food chains, and slushy fruit drinks, generally have well over 100 calories per 8 ounces, and are served in 16 ounce cups, or more. This means that the “healthy smoothie” you think you’re buying has more sugar and more calories than a can of regular Coke. Solving this ...

  • Ice Cream versus Frozen Yogurt

    Ice cream is simply not evil. Everyone knows that ice cream is desert, it’s a treat, it’s sweet, and nobody tries to pretend that eating ice cream is somehow an exercise in nutrition. Ice cream has about 100-to-140 calories for every ½ cup (4 ounce) serving. When you buy an ice cream cone you’ll typically be getting about 100 calories. On the other hand, a 20 ounce ice ...

  • The British Medical Association Versus the Food and Drink Federation

    In an effort to slow down the obesity epidemic in Great Britain, the British Medical Association last week called for a 20 percent sugar tax. They estimate that a 20 per cent tax would reduce the prevalence of obesity in the UK of 1.3 per cent – or by 180,000 people, particularly younger age people. This would result in lives being saved. In a crazy twist, the British Food and Drink ...
