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?

Mother's Day and Mother Earth

Did you know it’s been over a year since we started not-so-semi-regularly updating Wellness360? Hey now! Move over, WebMD! Since we admittedly forgot to timely commemorate this thrilling occasion, let’s do some quick backtracking: one of our first (and favorite) posts centered on Earth Day 2008. It was fun, informative, and Will Smith-friendly—the quintessential Wellness360 post.

I’d love to duplicate that formula, but doing an Earth Day post post-Earth Day is just lazy. However, I’m nothing if not a proponent of a strained segue that masks my inner languor: Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and who’s the fairest mother of them all? If you guessed Mother Earth, we’re probably best friends. So don’t be frightened! Follow my lead, put on your mom jeans, and join Wellness360 as we show you how to enjoy Mom’s day the pro-wellness way.
