Taking ____________ everyday is insurance that you are getting the micronutrients you may be missing out on in food — even if you eat a vegetable and produce-rich diet, the soil is depleted in these micronutrients.
Sleep isn’t respected in our society. We’ve adopted this “hustling” lifestyle where we think we have to work 18 hours a day to be successful in life. Afterall, we can catch up on sleep when we are dead, right?
Nothing is more confusing than being told that turkey and vegetables are healthy for you, you seeing that meal in the frozen section of the store, buying 10 of these meals only to find out that these aren't healthy. But why?
Back when Miley Cyrus started acting out, there was a picture of her butt compared to Hank Hill’s. Soon after that photo spread over the internet, people started saying that I too had a Hank Hill butt. After reading up on some research and treating myself like a lab experiment, I think I have found some very good “butt blasting” exercises.

I apologize for my recent absence. I needed to take a little hiatus from blogging. Papers and finals were coming up and I needed to put first things first. I’m not going to write on how busy I was but rather what I learned from this prolonged experience.
The end of the semester is near. For some, it is just another summer but for others, it is the start of a life. This time, more than ever, is your chance to put what you’ve learned to the test. When interviewing for a job, it is common to get nervous asking questions like, “What will they ask me?” and “What should I wear?”
Think about it -- nothing you are doing on your phone has to be done at 9 o'clock at night. Allow yourself a 90-minute screen curfew (this is, being away from a tv, laptop, tablet and cellphone) to push this "urgent" stuff to the next day and allow yourself to earn these four benefits.

With the understanding of the relationship between cortisol and melatonin, you now know that you can't beat biological functions. All efforts to improve your overall sleep quality has to supplement what is already happening in your body.
Reading seemed impossible. I started reading three minutes at a time while on the train. Taking a break, I would look outside through the window, then back down to reading. That didn't really do much. I would arrive at my internship ready to puke (Side note: I never actually puked).
I wasn't eating because I was hungry, rather because I was bored and unable to sleep. Research shows that after just 24 hours of sleep deprivation, there is an overall reduction of 6 percent in glucose reaching the brain.

Train low and compete high. This is not a fad diet. This isn't a way to restrict calorie intake. When you perform cardiorespiratory exercises while fasted (without calorie intake) more mitochondria are formed which burns fat cells for fuel while sparing muscle glycogen (glucose stored in muscle).
I had the opportunity to organize an event to have Shawn Stevenson speak on healthy sleep habits at Webster University. In this video he explains how positive sleep habits will benefit you as an individual, how hormone/brain functions change, and includes tips on how to improve your sleep.

I am often asked, "So, what should I eat?" So, I felt it was time to start writing a blog. When I talk about diet I find myself saying, "2 of these, 4 oz of that" and after my breakfast menu it feels like you just went through an hour long college algebra class. This is probably not the best feeling after looking for some yummy treats.
