The 80 10 10 Diet (Dr. Graham’s Diet)

T

When one is seemingly obsessed with drugs and alcohol, out come the labels ‘addiction’, ‘substance abuse’ and so on and so forth but when an unrecognized illness that is known as orthorexia, when one is far too obsessed to eat only healthy foods to the point when one slips up, the person overcompensates by taking an extreme form of action such as fasting and so on and so...

The Most Annoying Diet and Fitness Myths

T

As someone who has spent a lot of time either researching into health and fitness or doing the workouts in person, I consider myself fairly knowledgeable on the subject. Despite that though I still respect the fact that nothing is ‘set in stone’ as it were when it comes to training because we’re making new discoveries all the time, and obviously what works for one person...

How to Improve Your Mood by Changing Your Diet

H

It is well known that exercise, sunshine and friendship improve mood, but the impact diet can have is frequently underestimated. Rather than taking anti-depressants, it would be both cheaper and healthier to change what you eat and drink. This is especially true for those who inhabit the rich, western nations. For example, the citizens of Western Europe and North America consume a great deal of...

What Is the Omni Diet?

W

With a million and one diets out there to try it’s getting increasingly difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff (ironic, seeing as many of these diets recommend that you avoid wheat…). The Omni Diet is just one more diet to add to that list of options and to further complicate matters. But on the face of it – judging from the name alone – it sounds rather promising. ‘Omni’ suggests...

How Your Diet and Lifestyle Affects Your Genes

H

You probably have a decent idea of what your genes are. Most of us understand that they make up DNA and that DNA strands are the helix-shaped chemicals that live in our cells and define our physical characteristics. We also know that our genes are passed on from our parents. Many of us blame our genetics for a wide range of things, whether it’s our inability to lose weight, or our inability to...

How to Alkalize Your Body

H

You’re making sure to avoid unnecessary toxins, you’re steering clear of sugar wherever possible and you’ve lowered your calorie intake. Meanwhile, you’re not spending too long in the sun and you’re going to the gym plenty. All seems well on the health front, pat yourself on the back! But then you come across an article online that claims you need to ‘alkalize your body’ or risk a number of...

Cayenne Pepper Diet

C

You cannot turn a page in a magazine or watch a morning show without hearing about the newest and latest diet craze. It can be hard to get the low-down on a diet and how it works (or doesn’t) from these types of sources, so doing your homework can be a good idea before starting any diet. The Cayenne Pepper Diet is no different. What? The Cayenne Pepper Diet is not exactly as it sounds. No, you...

The Lemonade Detox Diet

T

The lemonade detox diet is one of the worst fad diets ever concocted, which is really saying something when you consider the competition. You only need to look at the title to see that this is a very misguided diet. The idea that you can fast using any kind of juice drink as a substitute for food is a dangerously incorrect one, while the whole concept of ‘detoxing’ is backed by precisely zero...

What Are Mono Diets? And Why You Should Steer Well Clear

W

Everyone is looking for a ‘quick fix’ when it comes to their weight loss. When we’re presented with reams of information on diet, nutrition and exercise, most of us find our eyes glazing over and our heart rates increasing.
