Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

By Jennifer Pittman  It’s pumpkin season!!! Ok, I might be a little too excited about pumpkin, but I just can’t help myself… Pumpkins are low in saturated fat and calories, are high in fiber and are very low in cholesterol and sodium. They are also chock full of vitamins and minerals such as: Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Folate, Iron, Magnesium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Potassium. Not to ment ...[Read More]

Fat Loss Friendly Deviled Eggs

By Blair Lindler Deviled eggs are one of my favorite foods – Grandma turned me onto them when I was just a wee one. But as I’ve grown up, I’ve found new and “improved” (read: healthier) ways to make one of my favorite finger foods to take to picnics, pot-lucks, or any sort of party (football games included!) As football season comes into full swing with its tailgates and rivalries, this seems ...[Read More]

Kill That Craving

By Blair Lindler Where are my sugar junkies? I know you’re out there… Don’t worry, I’m not taking attendance.  I’m only asking for you to take ownership of one of your weaknesses (if you have it) and admit it to yourself.  You know the first step to breaking a habit? Admitting it.  Even if it’s just to yourself. Sugar is one of the more “addictive” substances that we consume – both deliberately an ...[Read More]

Lazy Fajitas and Guac

Lazy Fajitas and Guac

By Blair Lindler   One of my biggest weaknesses when it comes to food is Mexican food. I love it. I love going to our local Mexican restaurant and savoring every bite. 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 b ...[Read More]

Snack Time!

By Jennifer Pittman I love to snack! Who doesn’t, right? Living a fat loss lifestyle does not mean that you have to forego snacking; it’s actually the opposite. 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]

Easy Weeknight Dinner – Mesquite Chicken Thighs and Summer Tomato Salad

By Jennifer Pittman   When it comes to weeknight meals, I’m all about simple, quick and easy. Oftentimes, my husband and I don’t get home on weeknights until 6:30 or 7:00; leaving a small amount of time for supper prep. This recipe is my favorite weeknight “go-to” because it’s yummy, fat-loss friendly, cost effective for feeding a family and literally only takes about 15 minutes of true prep ...[Read More]

The Affects of Alcohol on Female Fat Loss

By Jennifer Pittman It’s summertime; the season of BBQs, pools, the beach, friends, fireworks, vacations, parties, BEER, WINE, and MARGARITAS! Oh my!     While I for one love a nice glass of pinot noir with dinner or a tall margarita beachside, it’s important as female fat loss practitioners to understand how alcohol affects our metabolism’s ability to burn fat. After all, sustainable an ...[Read More]

By Jennifer Pittman The countdown to Bikini Boot Camp continues… only 5 days left! There it is. Your daily lunchtime salad consisting of the “same-old-same-old”…probably something along the lines of salad greens, tomato and cucumber. BORING! While salads are a super important part of living a fat-loss lifestyle, it doesn’t mean that they have to be hum-drum to eat. You’ve got to get creative ...[Read More]
