Does Eating a Whole-Food Plant-Based Diet Cure Food Addiction?

We Make BAD ASS FOOD

Sometimes, I think we should have named Read The Ingredients 'BAD ASS FOODS.' To understand my thinking, let’s define Bad Ass: The dictionary definition includes phrases like “uncompromising”, “bold”, and “intimidating”.

Protein: The Top 5 Things to Consider

As a competitive cyclist, I started paying closer attention to the foods I ate and the macronutrient composition of my meals. My thinking was that I was protein-deficient. No symptoms were pointing to this being an issue, but I was too busy listening to marketers, rather than doing the research myself.

Snacking Can Do A Body Good

Snacking is an important part of eating healthily. But that doesn’t give you carte blanche to grab whatever is labeled as snack food and assume it is OK to eat.

Lasting Positive Change

Unfortunately, as human beings we are hardwired for quick fixes. Lifestyle change doesn’t offer quick fixes, but what it does offer is much better overall health for the rest of our lives, and long-term solutions for the problems we think we are addressing by dieting.

You Can't Out Exercise a Bad Diet

Far too often, the main objective of working out is to look good. While commonly assumed that a physique that looks toned and fit is one of health, this is not necessarily the case.
