Who decides which foods are deemed good or bad? The food police? Dietitians and nutritionists? Your mom? Well, we are here to inform you that no foods are good and no foods are bad. Every food item has something to offer your body. It is important to remember that we don’t just eat to perform! We encourage you all to consume the foods you enjoy, the foods you crave, and the foods that satisfy you! Afterall depriving yourself of your favorite foods often leads to overconsumption of alternative “health foods” or eventually binge eating the foods they once avoided during a short-lived diet.


 A research team at UCLA concluded that two-thirds of people who lost weight on a diet end up regaining more than they lost within a 5-year time frame.1 Perhaps the basics of moderation, variety, and balance are indeed-- true! Frequent weight loss and weight gain (yo,yo dieting) may be worse for your overall health than a cupcake for dessert or lasagna at dinner every now and then.2 So, eat in moderation and do not skip dessert when you want it! Most importantly, be kind to your body, after all, it sure does a lot for you!


This month we are bringing you our favorite comfort foods with a healthful twist! Be ready to indulge this month in some of these delicious treats that will surely satisfy your tastebuds. Train hard and eat well. :)
