Re-visiting some love as we wrap up this year. I know the temptation to "start dieting" early 2021 is strong but switching up the narrative to "getting healthier and fitter" might be a better, more long-term solution.

People often ask me, “But how would I know I am healthy if I don’t ever weigh myself!?” Read on to get your answer.
Disclaimer: I initially labeled the article Good foods | Bad foods and then had to catch myself and say that that would be way too reductive. If you have foods you'd like to add to either list, do share with us!

It actually has several benefits to offer. If you love cheese as much as the next person, read on for five health-related reasons to add cheese to your diet!

Not being able to say NO to yourself is a battle between you and your mind.

The image at the bottom of the full article is my favourite recent coconut water plug seen and taken from the 'Overheard in NYC' Instagram page.
