❤ palpitations after eating a healthy vegan meal. Very obese, i drink veg/green smoothies for bkfst & lunch, no trouble until my full meal at dinner.

I want to eat healthier but fast food is just so convenient and good. How can I give myself the willpower to eat healthier?

How can I avoid craving for unhealthy foods? I want to eat right, but i work a lot and don't have time to fix healthy foods. Everything is fast food.

Healthy fats/protein: If you start your day with the food that your body needs you are less likely to have cravings. The worst thing to do is to start with sugar and caffeine. Those send your body on a roller coaster - you feel energetic right afterwards but then your energy drops and you start looking for more sugar to boost your energy. If you start with protein and fats your blood sugar won't spike. ...Read more

Hi. I'm a teenager and I have a little belly fat. I eat healthy food. How can I lose it without diest and exercises fast?

You're kidding ??.: You need to understand that those with "ripped abs" have similar appearance of their other muscle groups. They achieve this through both workouts and a strict diet which has permitted them do drop their total body fat content down below 10% of body weight. Normal teens would carry around about 20% or a bit more if a little belly pouch. Think of dropping 10% of your weight to get this look. ...Read more
