Time for a change

by Antonio Sini I’m guessing you don’t eat the exact same thing every day? If you do, we should talk! Not only would that get boring after a week or two, but you’re likely to miss key nutrients that come from eating a variety of foods. Variety is just as important when it comes to […]

by Antonio Sini …. Do you eat enough vegetables?  I’m not talking about a few pieces of cucumber and some tomatoes with your salad—I’m talking about nutritious, hearty, fiber-rich vegetables, raw if possible!

You wouldn’t “try” […]

Take the ‘work’ out of your workout.

I hear so many people complain that they don’t enjoy working out. The truth is, I don’t enjoy “working out” either. I think slogging along for 45 minutes on an elliptical machine is about as much fun as waiting in line at the bank. Now, on the other hand, I love to exercise. I know […]

Ignorance is bliss …until you end up in the hospital.

Taking action requires effort but when there is no perceived disadvantage to not changing the way we live, many of us don’t bother. It concerns me to see so many people making continuously unhealthy choices. At what point do we go from oblivious to conscious? Do we wait until the doctor tells us we have […]
