Healthy Food vs. Unhealthy Food


To begin, eating healthier starts with eating healthier foods. Without creating a huge list of “eat this” and “don’t eat that” foods, let’s make it simple. As I mentioned in my post, “How To Keep Yourself Motivated,” the fewer decisions we have to make, the less we tax our will power, which means that more will power or self-control is available to us to resist unhealthy foods.

Hi, it’s Rick Henkin and I want to talk to you about sleep, glorious sleep and its importance to weight loss. When we think about losing weight we usually think of diet and exercise. But is sleep just as important? And just to be clear, when I mention losing weight, I’m not talking about scale weight, I’m talking about body fat. Let me digress for a quick second.

Posted by on Jun 11, 2015 in Exercise, Nutrition | 4 comments

In January of this year I decided to change my body composition (ratio of body fat to lean mass). Lean mass is everything in your body other than body fat- muscle, bone, organs, and skin. I was curious to see what I could learn and what I could accomplish in a 12 week period at my age. This journey was chronicled on Face Book. Here are my posts and my results:
