Navigating Through Type 2 Weight Gain!

Posted by: GinaS

Sometime, typically in your early 20s, it begins. You had no problems in your youth or high school maintaining a healthy weight. Little to no effort was required. Your metabolism seemed to take care of you no matter what you ate. Then things begin to change.

Some call it the "Freshman 10."  In some cases it's the natural process of "filling out," that phase when an adolescent girl becomes a woman, or a boy becomes a man.  For the fortunate few, the net result is a healthy and balanced adult height and weight. For the majority, at least in America, this phase...

You can either let aging depress you, or inspire you... This past year, as I stared down the day that I would turn 40, I made a choice to embrace it in a big way!

I hear so many people talk about how they can't do or achieve the things they want to... Or how they are unhappy with something about themselves or their lives. Well I was one of those people for years too... Stuck in an overweight, unhealthy body, wanting to do more and have more opportunities. But I finally got tired of just complaining about it and decided that I was going to use my 40th birthday as a goal to finally...

There are two basic types of fat found in most mammals; brown and white.

White fat is most prevalent in humans and it's primary function is energy storage and insulation. White fat does not burn calories, it stores them.
