Lose Weight, Sleep Better and Be Happier

Five percent of your weight is all it takes to catch better Zs and feel more "Bob Marley-ish," according to a new study presented Tuesday at the joint meeting of the International Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society: ICE/ENDO 2014 in Chicago.

The 5 Minute Friday Workout

T.G.I.F! Although those wonderful family sitcoms, Family Matters, Boy Meets World and Step By Step are waaaaaay obsolete, there still exists the sense of completion of a busy week and pending relaxation on the horizon as Saturday approaches. Fridays are probably the most common days that workout routines are dropped because of this trough in motivation and tease of upcoming chill time. So to help us all stay consistent, I put together this 5 Minute Friday Workout Routine! The 5 [...]

Today's workout is real low-key and somewhat meditative. Take your time, get lost in your muscle contractures [...]

Is Cracking Knuckles Bad?

I was asked if knuckle cracking was bad, and I honestly had no idea. So, what do we do? We look at the medical studies to find an answer. I thought I would spend a whole night looking through multiple medical journals, but only a few had [...]

Intermittent Fasting Reduces Cholesterol And Aids Weight Loss

I have recently become a huge fan of intermittent fasting. While I am not 100% certain, I am beginning to believe that we simply bombard our bodies with too much food, too often. We eat a lot, and we eat all the time! Even worse, we tend to eat a lot of processed, unnatural foods that doom us to the grasp of chronic disease...
