Super-sized portions are everywhere – at restaurants, schools and in the grocery store aisles. This trend has certainly distorted the way most Americans view “normal” portions and contributed to the obesity epidemic (over two-thirds of the adult population in the U.S. is overweight or obese. scary, right?).
So whether your goal is to lose weight or simply to maintain, it’s important to control portion size and the calories you consume. In a recent study, researchers found a simple way to do just that.Read More

An inspiring story of transformation
When Carlos Tristan enters the room you would never guess that he once weighed over 450 lbs. In fact, Carlos thinks he may have been well over but that is as high as his scale went. Two years later, Carlos has lost over 250 lbs. using NeoLifeShake as a meal replacement as well as multiple other NeoLife nutritionals.
Before NeoLife, Carlos’s diet consisted of carnitas and enchiladas. He was consistently tired and didn’t know why. His health was so poor that his Doctor had even told him, “I don’t know how you are even walking.”Read More

2014 is your year to Be Your Best! Now is the time of year that most people get motivated to start getting healthy, fit, and lose weight. In the beginning of a new routine results typically start to show very quickly, but then comes the dreaded plateau. Don’t be discouraged! It’s natural for your body to get used to your healthier lifestyle. And the good news is that you can avoid plateaus with just a few easy changes.
This morning I went to the gym, as I do most mornings before work, expecting to enter the chaos that typically follows the celebration of each New Year and the resolutions we so often feel inspired to make.
To my surprise the gym was a ghost town, even deserted by the regular crowd usually spotted at this time of morning.
So why is this happening? The answer is simple: people aren’t sticking to their resolutions! But that’s only to be expected when we arbitrarily throw up statements like “I’m going to lose weight” or “I’m going to eat healthier” and then don’t follow through with how we are going to get there. By not taking the proper steps for success we are setting ourselves up for failure.
So what does it take to succeed with our New Year’s resolutions?Read More
90 Day Be Your Best Weight Loss Challenge Winners!
The night Anthony and Zereen Mirabello each won the 90 Day BE YOUR BEST Weight Loss Challenge, Anthony wasn’t even at home to hear it happen live. When Zereen called and told him they had won, he asked, “What do you mean, ‘We won?’” not realizing that the challenge had one category for men and another for women.
“I didn’t think there was any way either of us would win, much less both of us!” he laughs.
It’s pretty fitting for the Mirabellos to have won on the same night because the healthy lifestyle they’ve developed, they’ve developed together. It started with Zereen when she started walking every day with her friend. They would motivate each other and talk about health and nutrition as they exercised.Read More
Condiments add flavor to any meal. Many of us can’t imagine our favorite sandwich without mayonnaise or salad without creamy dressing, however, they tend to be loaded with sugar and high in fat. The truth is condiments can quickly turn any healthy meal into a bad one. Condiments are only intended to enhance a meal not be the main attraction.
If you can’t cut these condiments out completely, use them sparingly or try substituting for a healthier alternative. Instead of slathering condiments on your food, drizzle some on a side dish. This will help you be aware of just how much you are adding to your meal. Don’t let condiments hold you back from your weight loss or fitness goals.Read More
Ever reached out for one of those seemingly ubiquitous energy drinks? There are dozens of them out there, and they seem to have become a staple especially with college students and clubbers. Sales of Energy Drinks skyrocketed to $9.7 Billion in the United States this year according to Symphony IRI data compiled by Bloomberg. Children and adults under 25 years provide most of that revenue. But consider this: in addition to the empty calories (some with over 50g of sugar!), many of them have caffeine and stimulant ingredients such as guarana, glucoronolactone and L- phenylalanine at dangerously high levels– often time combined in one product.

Beep. Beep. Beep…Your alarm is going off in the morning. What’s your first thought? Snooze it or wake up for a morning workout?
If you’re not a morning person, your automatic reflex is probably to snooze it! You had every intention to workout in the morning but the idea of extra beauty sleep seems so much more beneficial. Not everyone can be a morning person, right? So, still half asleep, you reach over to hit the snooze button. As you turn back over in bed, you convince yourself that you’ll workout later!
You finally get out of bed and go on with your usual routine. Taking care of the kids, a day at the office or another day full of assignments at school which take priority over working out. So, again, you convince yourself that you’ll squeeze in a workout after your busy schedule.
