Let's Lose Some Weight

Hey, sounds like a pretty good idea, right? All we have to do is consume fewer calories and burn more, and voila, we are thin and trim. So how do we go about it? What’s the plan? Well, we gotta exercise more, eat less meat, avoid trans fats, yada yada yada… wait a minute. What’s that? Are you telling me, health experts at Healthline, that simple nutrition advice like this is not always beneficial?

Hold the phone, Dr. Kim: is it true that drinking too much water is dangerous? I didn’t catch that. Could you repeat it? If I’m hearing you loud and clear, what you’re saying is information we’re often given about cholesterol is inaccurate?

There's Something In The Air

Yes, fair reader, you guessed it. The answer is spring—spring is in the air. And fortunately for us, spring typically smells like the sizzle from a succulent grilled paradise. I’m temporarily blinded just thinking (and looking) about it. And while baseball may be the official pastime of spring, I, for one, can hardly imagine fully enjoying the sport without a serious grill-laden tailgate or two.

However, here’s where the two traditions diverge: while baseball is supremely healthy, keeping participants active, engaged, and alert, we cannot in good conscience always reciprocate the same good vibrations about the ubiquitous spring grillfest. Rife with hulking burgers, fatty hunks o’ steak, or piles of processed meats, like any baseball team, a license to grill can turn ghastly if not managed well. So heed the forthcoming scouting report from the grizzled vets at wellness360 to ensure your team of spring cuisine is more Rays (quite good) than Rangers (endless disappointment).
