I’ve been wanting to touch on a subject for quite awhile now, that I think is critically important for anyone trying to lose weight or change their body composition. What is it, you ask?

I’ve always been a book worm. ¬†Since as far back as I can remember I would pour over books, sometimes several at a time and get lost in the pages. ¬†I still would rather read a good story than watch a movie or tv show nearly every time (except Breaking Bad and Friends… too good). […]

Sugar has been a BIG part of my life for as long as I can remember. ¬†I used to claim the “biggest sweet tooth in the world” and my friends and family can attest to that… I lived for cookies, brownies, ice cream. Pretty much anything that was primarily sugar. You could think of ME […]

Table salt. Chicken sausages. Bacon. Vegetable broth. Deli turkey. Dried fruit… What do all these things have in common? ¬†Added sugar. ¬†Why?
