However, it doesn’t take a genius to know that it isn’t exactly on the “good list” for eating right or following a fat-loss lifestyle. So when I get the hankering for some Mexican, I have this one go-to dish. I love this dish because it’s a one-dish m ...[Read More]

Just the other day, one of our Bikini Boot Campers posted on Facebook that she was watching an afternoon talk show and the topic was hormones.

Become Your Goals

By Jennifer Pittman My journey in fitness and healthy living had a humble and, albeit, frustrating beginning.  Five years ago, my outlook on fitness was that of a person looking to lose weight and not gain health. All I cared about was the scale; which lead me into a dreadful and confusing relationship with my food and workouts. I thought that working out more and eating less would get me to my go ...[Read More]

If you want to build lean muscle mass, burn more fat and keep unnecessary cravings and hunger at bay, the best thing you can do for your metabolism is eat small high protein snacks/meals throughout the day. Yes, you heard me right… Want to ...[Read More]
