I have been trying to lose the baby weight for a while now! After 3 kids in 5 years, my body has needed a little fine tuning!! I have been trying to balance exercise with good eating habits! here are a few things I have done!! Continue
I choose to eat Special K when I am hungry. Usually I would reach for an unhealthy snack, such as chocolate, chips, candy or something else not so good for me! Now I eat the low calorie cereal with fat free milk (I have been drinking FF Milk for 5 years now!)…

It is hard for teens to get in exercise, especially when we are stressed out about AP testing or testing in general. But summer is almost here and it is a perfect opportunity to get some physical activity in. I recommend swimming. It is a great way to get in exercise and work out all the muscles in your body. That is why they have water aerobics you know, because you work out better in the water. Its easy to go swimming, even if you don't have a pool. Community centers usually have pools and it… Continue

Obesity not only harms a child's body, but it also causes significant psychological damage to children as young as 10, a large new Canadian study shows.
The study, based on a nationally representative sample of 10 and 11-year olds, found that obese children had almost twice the odds of reporting low self-esteem when compared to normal-weight kids.
And those whose self-esteem was low at the start of the study…

Do you think that its safe to exercise in South LA? I think that its not for many reasons such as that there is a lot of holes in floors,cements,little bit of parks around many neighborhoods of LA and the ones that are here they are closed up with gates,its not safe because there is mostly gangs and not enough police around this areas to enforce the laws,and if you want to exercise you have to be famaliar of the place that you will be doing it in and have to know the people… Continue

I think it is safe to exercise in South Los Angeles, however it depends when, where, and who is around. For starters you should exercise during the day when the sun is out and in a place you are familiar With and where there are people around. Also, exercising wouldn't be such a bore when you are working out with your friends. If I was the President I would definetley support the whole idea of getting out and exercising… Continue

Bananas can be helpful in many ways. With three different natural sugars, sucrose, fructose, and glucose, it can give your body enough energy for a 90 minute workout.It also helps reduce blood pressure and hart strokes. Potassium in a banana helps increase brain power. In other cases like depression it help improve moods, relax a person, and even make them a little happy. A hangover can have many cures but a shocking one yet easy is a banana milk shake.… Continue

There are millions of different types of trends. Some can be what you wear to school, or how talk but the must shocking ones have to do with food, or the way you eat it. The growing trend among pregnant women is to starve them self's and their baby in order to keep their figure.This can cause the baby's life or led to illness. Some famous talks show host have told may stories. A good example is Tyra Banks.

A single carrot will supply all your vitamin A needs for the whole day. It’s also a great food to nibble, being a much healthier pastime than grazing on potato chips.
Research has also shown that this vegetable has a protective effect against ultraviolet light ( in other words they will help you look younger, longer).
1. Carrot is energizing and antiseptic Continue
2. Eating carrots will encourage healthy skin, hair, bones,…

My favorite recipe is super simple! Get a pound of ground beef (or more, depending on how many people you want to feed) and a sweet onion, green and red bell peppers (yellow or orange also work! or do all 4!) and a clove or two of garlic. chop all veggies in a food processor until VERY fine. then mix in by hand with the hamburger meat and make into patties! serve on whole wheat buns and add desired condiments!! Great healthy meal that tastes even better!!

Why is it that there is fast food restaurants in every corner of the ghetto but in rich places it takes you about 1-5 miles just to fnd one? Is it because of the politicians wanting to kill 3/4 of the world's population of people and there is 6 billion people in the world and they want to leave 5 million left because of overpopulation?I bet that most of you didnt know that! They are targeting the poor communities with fast food restaurants in every corner and maybe they just want… Continue
