• 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.

    • The Millionaire Matchmaker is officially matched. • Are these super foods or super trendy? • Jon Gosselin's lady friend hearts the bong. • Warning: creepy guys are getting tech savvy. • Is Paris going after Jessica Simpson's leftovers? • Aaaand I'm never eating McDonalds again. • Michelle Obama got a haircut.

  • 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.

  • Add A Dash For Weight Loss?

    Always looking for new ways to curb your appetite and shed those stubborn pounds?

Enter Sensa.

  • 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).

  • The Procastinators Guide To a Beach Body

    Are you a procrastinator? Did you forgo the gym all week to cram for that Chem final and now you're freaking about putting on a bathing suit this Saturday!? Unlike academics, getting a beach body cannot be achieved by pulling an all-nighter. However, lucky for you there are a few tips and tricks that will provide you with a quick fix to looking fabulous.

  • 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.
