Low Carb Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bombs

I must admit that I’m not on the keto diet. In fact, I was even skeptical of it at first. But I’ve had enough friends find success on keto for me to think there must really be something there. Plus, I love that people on keto don’t complain about keto. There are enough foods available on the diet to keep them satiated and not feeling grumpy — they’re still fun to hang out with! Not that other diets can make us cranky… or wait. Yes. Yes they do. My keto friends were feeling left out of the Everybody Craves page. Except for a few low carb smoothies, I hadn’t shown them much love. Time to change that. This recipe comes from my friend (and videographer!) Jess, who loves this recipe so much that when she accidentally let a baggie full of these melt in her hot car, she called it…

This is how much you need to exercise to burn off your Super Bowl snacks

There’s no question about it: Super Bowl Sunday is a tough day to eat healthy. Even if you’re not a fan of either team, you still might find yourself at a party, socializing, trying not to let those deep fried wings and blue cheese tempt you. The Super Bowl has become one of the biggest food days of the year, second only to Thanksgiving. During the four-hour Super Bowl extravaganza, the average party-goer will consume about 1,200 calories and 50 grams of fat.

7 Keto-friendly drinks you can order at Starbucks

So you have the keto thing down no problem when you cook at home, but when you go out to eat, things can get pretty tricky. Sometimes you might just decide just to skip the restaurant entirely if you’re not sure of its menu options, but skipping out on Starbucks? Well, is that really ever an option? The good news is that you don’t have to give up your beloved coffee run. The java giant offers plenty of keto-approved caffeinated drinks so you can have your morning pick-me-up, while still staying true to your diet.

Cranberry, orange, almond smoothie

You may think of cranberries as a fruit option only between Thanksgiving and Christmas when popular dishes like cranberry sauce and cranberry baked goods prevail. But there are plenty of reasons to eat the fresh, ruby red fruit all year long. Cranberries have long been known to help reduce the likelihood of urinary tract infections. They also contain important vitamins such as C, E, K, manganese, fiber, and loads of antioxidants. Antioxidants are known to limit the damage caused by free radicals in your body, and help reduce signs of aging as well as helping to fight cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Cranberries may also reduce bad cholesterol, help fight gum disease, and boost your immune system. Get the picture yet? Eat more cranberries! You can add fresh or dried cranberries to any number of salads, salsas, smoothies, or dishes, but eating them fresh delivers the most health benefits. This…

But that doesn’t stop us from looking for the latest strategy for losing weight in a hurry. Google has published its list of the Top 10 Most Searched Diets of 2018. This year, diets fell largely in two categories — those that skip or cut carbs, or those that restrict eating to certain hours or days of the week. Google receives more than 90 percent of the world’s searches, so the search engine’s list is probably a decent gauge of what people were actually interested in a trying out this year, or at the very least, which diets have grown tremendously in popularity from 2017 to 2018. Noticeably absent this year, are former heavyweight diet methods paleo and Atkins. So, how did Google do? Did you search…

Yo-yo dieting can lead to early death, study suggests

You pack on some serious pounds, then work hard to drop the weight — but then put it all back on again. Aside from being incredibly frustrating for the individual, experts are now warning that these dramatic fluctuations in weight are linked to a slew of negative side effects — including an increased risk of death. The new study was published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. Researchers investigated the health risks of yo-yo dieting by examining the results from the 3,600 men and women who participated in the Korean Genome and Epidemiology Study. They found that dramatic weight swings was associated with higher risk of mortality. One exception to this study is for obese individuals who crash diet and experience weight loss. Those people were found to be less likely to develop type-2 diabetes over time. However, perfectly healthy people who quickly lose and gain…
