Do you view soup as a way to supplement your lunchtime sandwich or cure an occasional cold? While we’re also fans of old-fashioned grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup as well as Mom’s chicken noodle soup cure for colds, there’s a new use for soup: Weight loss.

Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter, which means you’ve got plenty of time to start slimming down for swimsuit season (or even spring break). The key to getting lean is to combine cardio exercise with the right diet. First, you need to make sure you’re doing enough cardio to burn fat every day. Next, clean up your plate. When mapping out your weekly meal plans, consider including high-quality meal replacement shakes. Let me tell you why.
The American Heart Association (AHA) reports that heart disease has been called the Silent Killer because it often has no noticeable symptoms. The statistics: It’s more deadly than all forms of cancer combined and actually impacts more women than men. In addition to talking with your healthcare provider about preventive measures such as kicking the smoking habit and keeping your blood pressure at a healthy level, the right diet can help. From healthy fats to low calorie treats, here are some suggestions for heart-healthy foods and drinks, based on the AHA recommendations:
“I’m Late, I’m Late for a very important date, No time to say hello, goodbye, I’m late, I’m late.”
If you feel like the White Rabbit in “Alice in Wonderland” much of the time, trying to weigh, measure, calculate and cook complex diet meals just isn’t on your agenda. And we get that.
I often hear the complaint: “I’m working out almost every day, but my weight won’t budge.” What many people don’t realize is that exercise is the easy part. Learning to eat right–and sticking with a healthy-eating plan–is a much bigger challenge when it comes to shedding extra pounds and changing the shape of your body. You can kill yourself in the gym, sweating through an hour or more of cardio daily and lifting weights until you drop. But the results aren’t going to show if there’s a layer of fat sticking around due to a poor diet.
When I first heard the phrase “toxic acid overload” on my fave TV health talk show yesterday, I thought it sounded like the name of a 1980s heavy metal band. But it turns out that there are “acid-forming” foods that can cause all sorts of chaos in your body. One of them was weight gain, said the doc—yikes! No thanks!
Through the holidays, you may have let loose a little. After all, no one wants to be the scrooge of Christmas, saying no to every morsel of food that doesn’t fit within your diet. But by taking a cheat day — or two or three — you may not be doing your waistline any favors.
