Spare change?

12:58 pm - Posted by Gregg

Jordan Ring recently alerted me to his article “25 Small Changes You Can Make to Lose Weight, Feel Better and Live Longer,” which (as promised) is chock full of easy and helpful ideas for anyone looking to take their health to the next level. Jordan divides up these health-minded tips between dietary, lifestyle and attitude changes – making it easy for the reader to pick and choose which tips he or she might want to put into practice.

I’ve always loved this approach to feeling and looking better. Too often, when wanting to initiate important change in our lives, we take on an “All or nothing” approach, which can lead to instant failure the first time we fall off the wagon (however one defines his or her own wagon).

You can check out Jordan’s full article and all 25 of his helpful tips by clicking here. And feel free to add your own tips to the conversation by commenting below. (Thanks!)

Weighty Matters

11:43 am - Posted by Gregg

Nutritionist and health coach Lisa Goldberg recently interviewed me (along with several other experts) for her Right Mind, Right Weight online summit. Some of you may have participated in this free summit and, if so, hopefully got a lot out of Lisa’s panel of inspiring people who are making a healthy difference in mind and body matters. As we’re all learning, this road to health is paved with lots of “quick fix” schemes when, in reality, it’s the tried and true that really works. In other words, there are no quick fixes.

Lisa’s level minded and realistic approach to this subject is refreshing and it was my pleasure and honor to be part of her summit. And because of her generous nature, she’s allowed me to share her interview with me with all of you (whether you participated in the summit or not). So here is the full interview for your enjoyment and (hopefully) benefit. After all, any little weight loss and health-related tips we can pick up along the way help us to not only take the excess weight off… But also to keep it off! Enjoy!

Posture perfect

1:34 pm - Posted by Gregg

Did you know that both standing and sitting tall are as good for your inner health as they are for your outward appearance – making this an appropriate reminder for anytime of year (and believe me, I need just as much reminding to ‘Stand up straight’ as anyone!).

In fact, if you stand tall and sit tall, you’ll appear as much as 10-pounds thinner. You also exude extra confidence and self-worth, upping the “attractor factor.”

Think about it… People you see with good posture (whether seated or standing) just seem to have it more together than the people walking around in a slump. Take the initiative to reach for the stars by reminding yourself several times throughout the day to stand or sit tall. Look in a mirror to help you know how it “feels” to use correct posture. It takes some getting used to – but is definitely worth the effort. Other ways to improve personal posture include trying yogaPilates or other stretching and strengthening exercises, as recommended by your doctor.

Nourished and then some

1:32 pm - Posted by Gregg

I make no secret of being a huge fan of the Today show’s Joy Bauer and all she does in the name of health and nutrition. In fact, our professional relationship has become a friendship and I’m honored she now refers to me as her “diet husband.” (And I’m never granting her a diet divorce!)

One of Joy’s latest ventures is Nourish Snacks, which offer convenient and delicious pre-portioned snacks that have just the right amounts of protein and carbs for a filling, nutritious pick-me-up whenever needed.

I was thrilled when Nourish Snacks wanted to feature me on one of their blogs. And I invite you to check it out by clicking here. It’s a fun interview and I didn’t hold back with my tried-and-true tips for taking off excess weight. (Faithful readers of this blog know that I took off over 250 pounds of excess weight in a sane fashion and have kept the weight off for over a decade. Plus, anytime I can let people know about my new book, Weightless, I’m all in!)

For anyone wanting more information about Nourish Snacks or their insane variety of flavors, you can click here. In the meantime, I hope you’ll check out the interview and let me know what you think. (Thanks!)

Even though it’s still super hot here in Los Angeles, the calendar says October…so I’m turning my attention to seasonal fruits and vegetables (’cause I’ve got to get my autumn-fix from somewhere). I love this infographic from HealthCentral, which illustrates  favorite fall veggies and fruits while offering the benefits of incorporating them into your diet as well as some tips for buying, preparing, and enjoying. In other words, Happy Fall Y’all!
