How to Deal with A Live-In Partner’s Eating Habits

healthyish dinner

Falling in love is one of the best feelings you’ll ever experience. There are butterflies in your stomach. There’s a spring in your step. There’s a gentle pitter-patter in your chest.   And as your love grows, oftentimes so does your waistline. Going out for dinner regularly and spending nights on the couch sharing a […] Read more…

Why meal plans don’t work and what to do instead

On the surface, meal plans seem like the solution to all our fat loss woes. They tell us exactly what to eat, how much of it and when. There’s no guessing involved; it’s all spelled out in black and white. And if there’s one thing people love, it’s being given the answer. But have you […] Read more…

5 Easy Diet Rules to Maintain Your Weight

You might have heard the statistic that 95% of people who lose weight gain it back within five years. I don’t know how accurate that is, but I can say that I was one of those people. I lost 20 pounds in my early twenties, and by the time I was 31 I had regained […] Read more…

Buckling Down & Giving Fucks

I talk a lot about moderation and still being able to enjoy yourself whether you’re maintaining your weight or trying to drop fat. But it would be dishonest of me to paint the process as easy. Moderation still takes work; there’s a balance to figure out. Obviously you are not going to be able to […] Read more…

A Day In The Life

So I decided to do this post not because my life is particularly interesting or exciting, but because I thought it would be helpful to show people how I practice moderation, especially when I’m on a cut. This was from Friday, Nov. 11 and I was actually a bit tighter with what I ate than […] Read more…

Not so fast: Is my metabolism making me fat?

When the scale won’t budge it’s easy to chalk it up to a slow metabolism. What about that guy who lives off doughnuts and never seems to gain a pound? He must have a fast metabolism, right? Well, not exactly. The answer is a little complicated, but the good news is that even if you […] Read more…

Day 1

A couple of weeks ago I bet David $100 that he couldn’t go a week without eating any added sugar. This was while he was in the depths of a pastry and candy binge fest that must’ve lasted at least a fortnight. Ashamed of himself (not really), he accepted. I was originally not participating in […] Read more…

Tomorrow is another day.

This weekend was a doozy. You see, David works at Whole Foods. And sometimes he brings home “goodies” (although I think it’d be more fitting to call them “badies.”) This week’s batch of evil temptation came in the form of cornbread. And not the dry, crumbly kind they used to sell in the school cafeteria. […] Read more…

How do your partner’s eating habits affect you?

The first order of business: photo re-cap of the weekend. Had another boot camp this weekend. Two new recruits came. Sweat was sweated. Groans were groaned. Puke was puked. All in all, good times. Then after the boot camp we gathered at my parents’ house for a pool party. Unfortunately I cannot divulge the details […] Read more…
