I know as well as anyone how challenging it can be to exercise
regularly, eat less, and lose weight.
Obviously there are lots of apps designed to help you meet
those challenges, including such well-known favorites as Lose It,
MyFitnessPal, and RunKeeper. I've found the last two in particular
to be indispensable as part of my regimen.
That said, developers are always looking for new ways to
(sorry) app-etize fitness and weight loss, everything from saving
you time to rewarding you for your efforts. Here's a look at three
of the latest apps that can help you health yourself.
7 Minute Workout
It was just a few weeks ago that I read a New York Times article about an interval
workout promising maximum fitness benefits with just seven
minutes of activity.
I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving, complete with tons of belly-busting food, drinks and good company. I'm actually still full from last week's feast and I'm sure most of you are feeling my pain. A ten day Master Cleanse sounds pretty good right now, but there are easier ways to get your body back on track. And, you might even have some of the digestive aids in your kitchen.
Here are some cheap and easy ways to get rid of that overstuffed feeling.

Concerned about membership plans? I'll break it down for you.
Last year I attended an American Heart Association event to learn about heart health. Ever since then, I've been thinking about one aspect in particular: sodium. We eat too much. The daily recommended amount it about 1,500 milligrams, and the average American consumes over 3,000 milligrams a day.
I recently learned that The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) does not authorize FDA to approve cosmetic ingredients (except color additives that are not coal-tar hair dyes), and that cosmetic manufacturers can pretty much put whatever they want into their products, except the few that have been prohibited. The next time you head to the drugstore to pick up your favorite lotion, face cream, or any other beauty product, you might want to take a look at the ingredients list. The list is usually quite long and most of the ingredients you probably can't pronounce.
Many of us grew up with red meat just once a week because Mom and Dad didn't make a lot of money. Red meat was a special treat, offered only once in a while. Because of this, some families see red meat on the table as proof of success. They may even feed their families red meat as much as three times a week. Sound familiar?
This kind of meat indulgence is bad for your wallet, body and the environment.
