Lose Some Weight…With Taco Bell?

Apparently some lady with a deep love for burritos lost 50 pounds eating Taco Bell (from the drive-thru - homegirl couldn't even get out of the car). And now, thanks to her tremendous success, the head honchos over at Taco Bell HQ are trying to make us all think about Taco Bell in a new way.

Sippin on Gin and Juice. Sans Gin. For 3 days. Yep.

Fact: on a daily basis the majority of us treat our bodies like crap. Sure we work out, we (try) to eat healthy, we pour over the latest health magazines and shell out dough for cute workout gear. But there is nothing healthy about an existence made up of 3 hours of sleep; daily Venti Americanos; and too many weekends filled with booze, late night pizza and drunkity drunk dip, to keep count.

Take The Fat Out of Fast Food

It is my firmest belief that fast-food restaurants should be listed as one of America’s deadliest sins. But because I can’t say no to a good drive-thru, I decided to figure out the healthiest options to order in hopes of keeping obesity at bay. And it's surprisingly not that hard to find healthy options at grease pits these days.

Eating Too Much? Make it Hurt!

With all the crazy diet fads, weight loss pills and general hysteria over how to shed extra weight, it’s no surprise when another completely ridiculous tactic comes out. And I'm not talking "only eat bacon" ridiculous. Allow me to introduce you to Dr. Nikolas Chugay’s mesh patch.

Just How Hard Is It To Burn Those Extra Calories?

So the fall semester is rolling round again. For you freshies that means the dreaded “Freshman 15." For the rest of us it means the shame of gaining an undisclosed amount of weight even though we are supposed to be “adjusted” and know how to stay healthy while we’re away from home.

The Fat Camp Chronicles: This Place Might Kill Me

I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it here another two weeks. I may kill myself. Or someone else. I say this because yesterday I was forced to do a mini-triathalon. I'm not sure if I've ever endured greater agony than what I just experienced. Alright, that's sort of an overstatement, but it really was incredibly effing hard.

Freshman Fifteen? Try The Summer Twenty

This summer is my last summer at home. While most of you can relate when I say that I'm ecstatic (believe me, I am), it may not be for the reason everyone expects. Read: living with the parents breathing down my neck. You see, when I go home, I gain weight.

Body Blog: Foods That Cure…

Around 3:00 PM everyday I hit an energy low. I get restless, tired, and cranky. Naturally I'll grab a latte to perk me up. But the caffeine fix really only lasts a few hours before I'm back where I started ... falling asleep in an inappropriate place. Like my desk. In the middle of a class. That only has 6 people in it.

The Perfect Man…Or Is He?

When I first heard that Joe Jonas couldn’t keep it together post break up with girlfriend Camille Belle and sobbed on stage during a show, I thought it was adorbs. A guy who is in touch with his emotions and willing to let it all out in front of 25,000 people? Be still my heart.

The Fat Camp Chronicles: If You’re Not Sore, You’re Not Working Hard Enough

Having now survived a full week of fat camp, I think I can safely say that I probably have never worked as hard in my life as I have since I got here. I'm incredibly out of shape (which adds to the difficulty), and it's been a big change for me. It's been a good change, however; I needed to get out of my comfort zone.

The Fat Camp Chronicles

All my life, I've been heavy. When I was younger I was ridiculed and bullied constantly about my weight problem, so I was always fairly depressed. Sure, I ate a lot (...of pastries), but my eating never warranted the amount of weight I would actually gain.

Body Blog: The Healthy Way to Detox

Studies have proven that liquid cleanses, like the juice cleanse, the infamous master cleanse, and even the water with lemon cleanse, are more harmful to the body than beneficial. Probably because girls tend to do them for weeks, even months at a time, to lose weight.

When Healthy Eating Becomes Unhealthy

Food. Body image. Health. Things we think about everyday. With ads on TV, in magazines, on the radio and with restaurants and fast food places changing menus to provide healthier options, it’s not our fault that food is on our minds a little bit too often. But did you know that even thinking about food could be having a dangerous affect on us?

Cut Those Cocktail Calories in Half!

We all know that summer marks the beginning of an endless season of barbecues, outdoor cocktail parties, and weekend vacation getaways where the food is always in abundance and the drinks never stop flowing.

Body Blog: Can You Be Fit AND Fat?

When I started training for a half-marathon a few years back I was absolutely convinced that I would be in the best shape of my life. How could running at least 7 miles everyday not give me lean, sexy legs, rock hard abs, or toned arms?

Sometimes Bad Can Be So Good

College, although deliciously fun and entertaining, is full of things that are bad for us. The four-day weekend bender? Bad for us. The four Red Bulls we chugged to finish that paper at 5am? Bad for us. But, surprisingly, sometimes what we think is horrible for our health can have some benefits.

A Productive Cure for The “I’m Bored” Munchies

A bag of ranch Doritos, an everything bagel and a pint of Ben & Jerry's Phish Food later, you're lying immobile on the sofa with a bulging belly. Not only do you feel guilty and disgusting, but your breath plain stanks. Oh girl, you've overdone it ... again.

How Much Do You Think About Food?

Whatcha thinking about? If you're anything like me, you're thinking about food. I literally ate about five minutes ago, but that doesn't stop images of delicious dinner selections from flashing through my brain. I blame it on my incessant need to plan and organize (but let's be honest - I just like food).

Interval Training: Fast and Slow’s The Way to Go

There is nothing I love more than the great feeling of accomplishment (with a side of endorphins) that comes after 45 minutes on the elliptical. Well, maybe sex on cold sheets. Or the guys at Cold Stone who give me a “Gotta Have It” for the price of a “Love It.”

The Best Thing My Mother Ever Gave Me

My mom does a lot of really annoying things: She calls me really early in the morning, or really late at night. To talk about reality TV shows. Whenever I'm on the phone with her, she hangs up abruptly to get another call...without saying goodbye. She pees with the door open in the powder room on the main floor of our house.

Admit it: Lame Excuses To Pig Out

Summer is almost here and, ideally, we should all be eating lots of fruits and vegetables and hitting the gym every day. But really, who wants to do all of that work? We’re too busy to focus on eating well. We don’t have enough money to buy healthier foods. Sugary cocktails are too good to pass up after a hard day. The list goes on and on.

Just Say No to Hydroxycut!

If you are considering taking diet pills, more specifically, Hydroxycut, it's time to get rid of those thoughts once and for all. The FDA recently linked their products to severe liver damage and death (yes, death!), so the makers pulled 14 of its products from shelves.

Fit Finds: You Bet Your Fat On It

A little friendly competition never hurt anyone...And when it comes to shaping up, sometimes it helps to have the motivation of others spurring you on. For me, the most dedicated I have ever been to regular gym-going and eating right was when I either had a goal in mind (running a half-marathon last summer) or when I had others keeping me accountable.

VitaminWater Introduces New Low-Calorie Variety

I love vitaminwater. It's yummy, and the fact that it's loaded with vitamins makes me feel like I'm doing something good for my body whenever I drink it. However, what I don't love so much is that the sugar in it that makes it taste so good also makes it a little high in calories.
