A Detox Challenge

A Detox Challenge Edit Delete Unpublish Submitted by admin on Mon, 2015-03-02 09:47 What it is: The Oakland Park-based company, DL Revamp, offered me its five-day “reset” cleanse. It comes with juices, salads, snacks and more, plus an Amp It Up Kit to prep for the cleanse. The company offers three- to 10-day plans meant for everyone from beginners to avid cleansers. The detox isn’t “juicing.” (Thank goodness for chewing.) Instead, the cleanse offers organic, plant-based foods, and bridges the gap between traditional foods and liquid cleanses. I said, “Sign me up.”Read more about A Detox Challenge

Tips for staying true to the cleanse.

Tips for staying true to the cleanse. Edit Delete Unpublish Submitted by admin on Mon, 2015-03-02 09:47 Cleanse Dos: Take advantage of nutritional consultations prior to the cleanse. Eat light, vegan foods before and after your cleanse to ease in and out of the cleanse. Avoid gluten and processed foods. Only choose organic food and juices, otherwise you will be putting toxins and pesticides back into your body. If you are very hungry, have a green apple or a handful of organic hemp seeds. Remember you are doing this cleanse because you love your body, so listen to it.Read more about Tips for staying true to the cleanse.

ZERO GRAVITY

ZERO GRAVITY Edit Delete Unpublish Submitted by admin on Mon, 2015-03-02 09:47 Had it not been for the welcoming smile on Lisa Midlarsky’s face, I may have turned around and walked back out of the Defy Gravity Yoga studio in Boca Raton. The facility where she teaches could double as a torture chamber, with questionable black straps hanging from the ceiling panels. Midlarsky used a ladder to drape the ropes with vibrant silks, and I was about to trust them with my life during my first anti-gravity yoga experience. From mine to yours, here’s what to expect:Read more about ZERO GRAVITY

The nutrition standards went into effect on Nov. 1, and removed a lot of the less healthy foods from vending machines, snack bars and stores in the schools. The new rules aim to cut calories, fats and sugars from the snacks available to children, due to increasing rates of childhood obesity. Food items on campus are now healthier.

Race day tips Edit Delete Unpublish Submitted by admin on Mon, 2014-12-29 09:20 Start slow. Conserving energy is critical in distance running. If there are a lot of runners, be patient. You’ll need the extra energy for later on in the race. Maintain a steady pace. Don’t run too fast or you’ll run out of steam. Find a pace that’s comfortable for you so that you don’t cramp or fatigue. Drink plenty of fluids. Before, during and after the race make sure you consume at least six to eight ounces of water or a sports drink every 15 to 20 minutes to stay hydrated and keep your body cool, especially when running in hot weather.Read more about Race day tips
