A FB friend asked me to read one of Food Babe’s posts before discounting her–This is the result

In a conversation on Facebook, I was asked to read a post or two from Food Babe before categorically dismissing her. Since I’ve only really read snippets here and there before, I decided to drop my defenses a little and read one of her posts, but to actually look up all of the claims she […]

More Data is Always Positive

Something that I’ve seen over and over throughout the last few years in the realm of weight loss is the advice to only weigh yourself at long intervals, typically once a week, so I wanted to take the time to refute this stance a little. The idea around weighing yourself at extended intervals is to […]
