Tuesday October 31, 2017

Then they put two and two together…and they realize that all those innocent trips to the candy bowl really weren’t so innocent after all…

Don’t let candy put an extra gut in your side this week. Let’s see how you can enjoy Halloween and keep your diet on track, no problem.

Diet Like a Celebrity

Tuesday October 17, 2017

Why do movie stars get paid millions and millions of dollars?

You can, and after this blog I know you will!

You’re the star, and your next role is the healthy and happy new “you”! Let’s get you “fit” for the role with a couple of tips celebrities, like your favorite movie stars, use to get toned.
