You Can Eat Dessert!

Laura decided to swear off desserts for what seemed like the 100th time.  She had struggled to beat her weakness for sweets for years.

BHTV #4 – Going Bananas!

I love bananas!  I know many of you feel the same way because bananas are the most popular fruit in the United States.  In fact, Americans consume, on average, about 25 pounds per person every year.  No wonder grocery stores make sure they are available all year round.  But not only are bananas tasty, they […]

Trim the Fat!

After listening to “Being Healthy for Busy People” podcasts for a few months, Stan realized that his daily fat intake was way too high.  He was a meat and potatoes kind of guy who enjoyed his steak, eggs, whole milk and greasy snack foods.  Even though he thought it might be a tough transition to […]

BH4BP #52 – Enjoy Concerts, But Protect Your Hearing!

Most of us love concerts, but we hate what it does to our ears afterward. Right after a concert our hearing tends to be shot. We feel like we are underwater and have difficulty hearing.

BH4BP #51 – Pasta: It’s Back On the Menu!

Pasta has gotten a bad rap over the past few years.  It has been categorized as a fattening food and been placed in the bad carbohydrate category.  Some people have even claimed that it has a high glycemic index.  But are any of these claims actually true? That’s an important question to ask because many […]
