Check Out Those Melons!

The Berkley Wellness Letter reminds us that when we’re watching our weight but want a little something for dessert, think melons.  A serving of melon (1 cup sliced) is usually only about 60 calories.  Cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon are the most common and a welcome addition to other fruits, snacks and fruit smoothies.  Cantaloupe is

Sensitive Sports For Diabetics

Selecting the right exercise for you is critical both from an enjoyment factor as well has from a health perspective. If you don’t like what you’re doing, you won’t be motivated to continue.

It can also over-tax muscles leaving you sore, stiff and even hurt. For some, “no pain means no gain.” But working your body into a state

Fit America has never believed in counting calories because we feel it perpetuates a preoccupation with food in addition to the fact that all calories are not alike. Eating 500 calories of lean meat will not have the same negative impact on your

Concentrated Exercise Won’t Remove Love Handles

Most of us have been under the impression that we can concentrate our exercise efforts to tone and burn fat from specific areas of the body. Not true. You need to exercise your entire body in order to even stimulate the fat burning process. If the removal of cellulite or love handles is your goal,

Dining Out – Keep Fast-Food Fast and Fat-Free!

It isn’t realistic of us to think we can zip by fast-food restaurants daily and never pull in.  Just because food is fast and convenient doesn’t mean it can’t be good for you.  It’s true that the majority of foods traditionally consumed in these places were mayo-packed burgers and greasy fries, but that is no
