The reason you're not losing weight...

Have your turkey (and eat it, too)

Make the most of your avocado


Isabel's Fun Fact


Avoid roasted nuts. The roasting process causes the fats and oils to go rancid, and rancid oils increase free-radical damage in the body. (Free radicals accelerate aging.)

What are you thankful for?

At my house, before each meal, we pray. I always ask the boys for their prayer requests where they have the opportunity to either thank God for something or ask God for something specific. Well Marcos, my 4 years old, does not hold back. His prayer requests look something like this… “I’d like to thank God today that I got to play outside and that Callie and Ella came over and that I’m having orange potatoes for dinner (sweet potatoes of course) and ask God to please take my cough away.” As adorable as this may sound, I am then required to remember every detail and recite it word for

Pre-turkey fasting makes you fat! Try my quick AM strategy…

People spend days and even weeks planning and preparing for their Thanksgiving feast…what recipes to use, what food to buy, how to set the table… It’s a big day for food and all that emphasis on indulging can send so many people into the end-of-the-year weight gain phenomenon.

How to have your turkey (and eat pie too!)

Can you believe it’s almost Thanksgiving? While I love the family focus of Thanksgiving, I know the other focus – comfort food – can cause a lot of people’s good-eating intentions to go out the window. Sound familiar?

But you have to take extra steps to safe-guard the progress you’ve already made and your weight loss and health focus…and it’s not always easy. Even

The Simple Principle My Dad Can Teach EVERYONE

In the wee hours of the morning, the sun still not out, and the smell of coffee flooding the kitchen, my dad could always be found in the same place every morning at 5 am…sitting at the kitchen table, fully dressed and ready to take on the day. As a young girl, if I happened to stumble out of bed before sunrise, I knew my dad was already well into his day. But it’s not so much that I remember what he was doing at that hour, but how he was doing it…with a huge grin on his face that spanned from ear to ear. You see, my dad was

To Cheat or Not to Cheat…

I had a conversation recently with my husband about a question people ask me all the time! (I get asked a lot of questions, but this one by far is in the top 3). “Isabel, how do you stay so disciplined all the time? Don’t you just want to eat bad food every once in a while?” To be honest, the short answer is NO. I am not suggesting everyone be perfect all the time, but there is one VERY very important reason why most of the time, I will choose to eat something healthy over an unhealthy option and that is this… Feeling bad, awful, tired, or run down
