Here’s an article I found on the Women’s Health website about simple lifestyle changes that you can tweak to drastically decrease your cancer risk. They’re all easy and won’t drastically change your lifestyle, but the long term benefits are so worth it.  I gave up processed food about 6 months ago after hearing about the effects of all the scary additives. I’ve never felt (or looked) better. As they say,”The proof is in the puddin’.”

I stumbled upon this post on Glamour.com and in light of this weeks incidents in Boston, it seems appropriate to share. The concept was simple: photograph what love looks like to you.

My biggest takeaway is that while I can absolutely see myself tearing through 3 cinnabuns, I can hardly imagine eating 60 carrots. The message: eating 2000 calories of healthy food is much harder than eating 2000 calories

of junk food, therefore making it near impossible to overeat if you’re only eating whole, natural, healthy foods.

Eat greens!

I’ve long since said that when women take on the attitude and approach men have with food, they’ll start to lean up and look better immediately. Men have  much less of an emotional connection to food and eating. This isn’t the only thing that makes their approach to food work better…but don’t take it from me. Here’s
a link to a fantastic article describing their habits and why you should adopt them. I’ve taken on quite a few over the years and I’ve never been leaner, meaner, or had a healthier attitude toward food!
