A little sugar here and there isn’t bad. The danger is that sugar comes in so many processed foods that the effects of it can be cumulative leading to cavities, weight gain, diabetes and even heart disease. Fortunately, it’s a simple fix! All you need to do is find ways to enjoy the foods that you know and love that aren’t so sugar-laden. Here’s a video presentation that I made to help illustrate just a handful of those options.

An important study that reveals why eating within a 12 hour window can help you maintain a healthy weight
A 12-Hour Window for a Healthy Weight.

Meal times have more effect on circadian rhythm than dark and light cycles. And circadian rhythm in turn affects the function of many genes in the body that are known to involve metabolism. Contain your eating to 12 hours a day or less. And pay attention to when you begin. The clock starts, with “that first cup of coffee with cream and sugar in the morning.

In a study conducted on mice some of the adult males in each dietary group were allowed to eat whenever they wanted throughout their waking hours; others were restricted to feeding periods of 9, 12 or 15 hours. The caloric intake for all the mice was the same. The mice eating at all hours were generally obese and metabolically ill, but those mice that ate within a 9- or 12-hour window remained sleek and healthy, even if they cheated occasionally on weekends. What’s more, mice that were switched out of an eat-anytime schedule lost some of the weight they had gained.

Even when working towards weight-loss goals it's important to maintain a positive self-image.
I cringe every time I hear my daughter or her friends criticize their bodies. How did these young ladies go from inquisitive carefree little girls to fretting over every little freckle and thing that they don't like about themselves.

It took me this long to come to a place in my life where I accept and love myself for who I am. And I certainly don't want my daughter or any other young lady to have to wait this long.

Let's stop the struggle and build confidence. Let's end the insanity that our bodies have to look a certain way to be sexy. I say confidence is Sexy! And they're worth it!
