Some misguided ideas are repeated constantly, no matter how solidly they have been debunked by scientific research. Many of these are aimed at women in particular.
I decided that us girls need some guidelines when it comes to looking for healthy nutrition bars. Coincidentally, while researching a "Where Are They Now" post on Laguna Beach, I found out that one of my favorite LB kids could potentially help in my nutrition bar quest.
Is coffee good for you? Should you be eating gluten-free? And are your late-night snacks making you gain weight? Check out my interview with JJ Virgin, fitness and nutrition expert and co-star of TLC’s Freaky Eaters, for the answers to all your nutrition questions.
Olivia Wilde. Carrie Underwood. Alicia Silverstone. Lea Michele. What do they all have in common? (Besides being really, really ridiculously good-looking?) They’re all vegans. That means they don’t eat any kind of food derived from an animal – meaning no meat, fish, eggs, or dairy. And lately, I feel like I’ve been hearing all about how absolutely stellar it makes them feel.
In the shuffle of moving and getting settled in the city this summer, I lost the balance of the healthy lifestyle I led through the school year.

Dear CollegeCandy, Thank you so much for your topics on health and fitness. As a college student, I feel very self-conscious about my body, and it causes a great deal of self-esteem issues. Especially around midterms, eating binges for me are fairly common. What is the best way to prevent this? Also, I live with two boys who eat WHATEVER they want... how do I avoid eating what they eat??
So, I've successfully made it through my first week without meat... and it hasn't been too bad! I've really liked that not eating things with meat has really forced me to try different foods and eat a more balanced diet, which is exactly what I was hoping would happen through this experiment.
It goes without saying that this month didn’t go according to plan for me, but interestingly, I think I learned a lot more than I had originally expected.
