The Cupcake Wars: As Seen in the NY Times (Plus More!)

The Cupcake Wars: As Seen in the NY Times (Plus More!)

Last week, there was an article in the NY Times about Meme Roth and her fight with her children’s school concerning school birthday parties and cupcakes.



What sets her off is the junk food served on special occasions: the cupcakes that come out for every birthday, the doughnuts her children were once given in gym, the sugary “Fun-Dip” packets that some parent provided the whole class on Valentine’s Day.



“I thought… Continue

Why Adult Diets Are Not Appropriate For Children

Why should a child’s diet be different from an adult’s diet?



A child’s diet can not be the same as an adult’s diet for many reasons. A child’s body goes through many stages of development and his nutritional needs vary depending on which stage he is in. For example, a child in puberty requires more calories than a school-age child. Therefore, providing the correct nutritional plan at all stages of growth is crucial to ensure proper development. Let’s review several diets and why they… Continue

Easy… just look at the nutrition label and the ingredient list! The nutrition label and the ingredient list have all the information that you need to determine whether a food is… Continue

How Much Do I Eat to Lose Weight?



This is probably one of the top questions for anyone embarking on a new diet and fitness plan.

Baby Weight....and other reasons to gain 43 pounds.

So, like I mentioned, my daughter, CE, is 10 1/2 months old. I still do not have my baby weight off. Oops. I gained 43 pounds with my pregnancy. In my defense, I am also 6'1". Does that make a difference? Well, whatever. The unfortunate part is that CE didn't come out weighing 43 pounds. That would have been super convenient. I lost 23 right away and then the other 20 hung on for dear life. She was 6 months old and I still was trucking along with that weight. I saw a picture of myself from a… Continue

Watch Your Eye! I Might Pop A Button!!

Over the past 2-3 months my pants have slowly grown tighter. I step on the scale and I see my numbers go up. I am helpless when it comes to the holidays. It's the food.

Eating Disorder or Just Starving?

I already know my answer...but a lot of women out there have no idea about theirs. For 12 years, I struggled with my weight, I binged, I purged, I didn’t eat, I suffered from chronic IBS, bloating, gas and pain, all I thought about was food, I loathed my body, I loathed myself.



At the time, I had several dietary rules/beliefs:

1. Eat as little fat as possible.

2. No dairy.

3. No meat.

4. Non-fat frozen yogurt doesn’t count as anything.

5. If it comes from the… Continue
