My Driver’s License Tells My Weight-Loss Story

The TSA agent looked at my driver’s license, and he looked back at me. He looked at my driver’s license again, and then again, at me. He gently shook his head and said, “I didn’t think this was you at all.” I smiled and nodded. “I have to renew in November. It’s been a while.” I knew what he was […]

Cooking Light Diet Is “Way We Want to Eat the Rest of Our Lives”

It’s Monday and rainy here in Birmingham, Alabama. As if a Monday could get any worse, right? Much like the first workday of the week, diets aren’t normally greeted with gusto. We begrudgingly accept them and eagerly await the endgame (come on, Friday!).

The Biggest Loser isn’t inspiring. It’s humiliating.

When The Biggest Loser is back with new episodes, I avoid the TV like it has the plague. I’ve never watched an entire episode of the reality show, which is currently casting for its 17th season. I don’t own any products connected with the television show or its personalities. That’s because I do not like The Biggest Loser. Not even one […]

Hard-Boiled Egg Ideas: The Greatest Snack, A Perfect Breakfast

I adore hard-cooked eggs for several reasons: They’re cheap, ridiculously versatile, and great to have on hand—they last in the fridge for 3 to 5 days if peeled and about a week if left in the shell. They also now have a clean bill of health. This isn’t new news, exactly, but the 2015 federal nutrition guidelines (still under review […]

Chocolatier Uses Cooking Light Diet to Create Tasty, Inspiration-filled Meals

When beginning a new diet it’s sometimes easy to miss the forest for the trees. Sure, the results might be desirable, but what if the food…isn’t? No one should have to suffer through bland or prepackaged meals to achieve their personal goals. Especially someone dedicated to bringing smiles to others through culinary craftsmanship. Don’t take our word for it, though. […]

Why I’m Not Stepping on a Scale Again Until May 1

I’m not stepping on my scale again for one month. My workouts have been hampered by a hip injury. I have been traveling a good bit and splurging on foods I can’t get back home (I’m looking at you, Chicago deep dish pizza). My meals are mostly good, and I stay within my calorie limit most days. Nevertheless, I have been fighting through […]
