The Worst Of The Internet Award

When you entrust your health to a company, you might expect them to take that seriously. Health is not something that can be brushed off or ignored, yet that’s exactly what some “health” companies do.

One such company is called Supplement Warehouse, the very first winner of our “worst of the internet” award.

On their website it states…“Do you know who you are doing business with? Does your online health food store have a posted physical address (not a PO Box) and posted phone number on their contact page? SupplementWarehouse.com is a legitimate business serving customers since 1996. Call us during business hours and talk to REAL people!”

“Legitimate” may be left to interpretation. Well, unfortunately I didn’t “know who I was doing business with”. Had I known, I would have never given them my money. But now you can learn from my mistake. (more…)

We’ve all been there. We’ve gone on a diet and been so very virtuous, losing a few pounds or even a significant amount of weight, when suddenly, terror strikes. We realize it’s almost time for vacation.

Why Healthy Eating Habits?

 

Why don’t 95% of diets work?  Why do people gain more weight after dieting, causing a “bigger” problem than it was originally?

 

When you diet, your metabolism slows down. Your body has a mind of its own. It wants to protect you, so not understanding what you want to do, it thinks for itself. The deprivation mode you go into causes your body to stop burning calories. It thinks you are in starvation mode, so it protects what you already have. Everything slows down and you are left at square one. (more…)

What Is Organic Food? Common questions and answers.

What is organic food anyway? And what’s the big deal?

Is One Multivitamin Supplement Per Day Enough?

I’ve been asked if taking a single multivitamin per day is enough for most people. The answer is…maybe.

 

The answer is vague because each of us are different. It depends on your age, lifestyle, gender, level of health and medications that may be taking. You might need supplements of certain, specific vitamins that are lacking in your diet, or you might need to compensate for those lacking in your body. You might need more of a vitamin to combat a certain difficulty you might be having.

 

This is not a cop-out to the original question. Taking a multivitamin is the least you should be doing. Why? Taking a multivitamin, and specific vitamin supplements help you get energy for proper metabolism. (more…)

“I’d rather not know what’s wrong with me”.
