VERIFY: Do 6 doughnuts really have the same amount of sugar that's in one bottle of soda?

You can't believe everything you see online, and understanding portions can shift your perspective.

wusa9.com You have a sweet tooth. But should you go for both the doughnuts and a fully sugared soft drink? Our Verify team checked out the claim in this viral tweet.

Testimonial Time! While we love seeing improvements in body composition and metabolism, we take extra joy in seeing the shifts in people's mindsets and relationships with food. Because we know if we can improve those two things, then the body changes will happen easier! Check out what our 42 year old female client had to say recently:

"Today I had a new personal best at the gym and deadlifted 193 pounds! I am definitely getting stronger, so hopefully my next dexa scan will show muscle gain. My clothes are fitting much better, with some old favorites wearable again. And overall, I feel great. I love that I am getting better results with less time working out. While I am curious as to what the scan will show, I don't even care that much because I feel so much better than I did a few months ago. My food and exercise right now feels very sustainable. I greatly appreciate you helping me find the right balance for me."

What BMI doesn't tell you about your health

Great video on why BMI is only a small piece of your picture! Do NOT use BMI to determine your ideal body weight and do not use it as your only source of assessment. Body fat tests give you a more thorough picture of how your weight is comprised. Look for a familiar face in this video!

In just 8 weeks, she lost 9 lbs of fat and gained 2 lbs of lean body mass. Her primary goal is to get healthier but as a bonus she is a faster and stronger athlete! We are not having her track her food. She is following a general macro balance at meals and snacks that fits her needs and fuels her activity.

34 Surprisingly Delicious High-Protein Smoothie Recipes

So many of our clients enjoy a smoothie in the morning but it's very easy for a smoothie to be nutritionally imbalanced. This site has some great flavor suggestions but we are going to encourage you to do the following:
-minimize added fats (avocado, hemp, flax, coconut, peanut butter, and chia seeds)
-mix in significant sources of protein (Greek yogurt, protein powder, meal replacements powders)
-include fiber-containing carbohydrates such as oats and fruit
-veggies or greens powder can be included per your preference for a nutrient boost

Study links emotional feeding in children to emotional eating later in life

Just today we talked with a client who was given food as a reward when she was a child. Many of you can probably identify with that. Understanding that food is your nourishment and fuel will help you develop a positive and healthy relationship with food. This needs to be translated to your kids! Watch what you say and be sure the appropriate message about the purpose of food gets across to them.
