Happy New Year! 2018

Happy New Year! Let’s begin with a thoughtful healthy and fit mindset as we start into 2018. Sexy is the New Healthy! Better your best… It’s sort of cute how in the Philippines, when a person is thin, they refer to that as being “sexy” – not meaning what Westerners mean by that.

Metabolism in Weight Management

Diets create a lose / lose scenario where the glass is constantly seen as half full, of being denied things.
