This Is Not A Health Drink!

Today Yahoo News is featuring more of their "Eat this not that" lists, and usually it is so painfully obvious to anyone with a brain, that I can't even believe people still eat this crap-especially that they think it is healthy. Here are some examples from Men's Health.

Worst Frozen Fruit Drink

Krispy Kreme Lemon Sherbet Chiller (20 fl oz)
980 calories
40 g fat (36 g saturated)
115 g sugars (29 teaspoons of the stuff!)

Sugar Equivalent: 16 medium-size chocolate eclairs

Imagine taking a regular can of soda, pouring in 18 extra teaspoons of sugar, and then swirling in half a cup of heavy cream!

Now if Krispy Kreme is in the title, how could anyone think this crap is healthy? Really people? Use your brain!

Worst “Health” Drink in America
Smoothie King Peanut Power Plus Grape (large, 40 fl oz)
1,498 calories
44 g fat (8 g saturated)
214 g sugars (a mind-blowing 54 teaspoons' worth!)

Sugar Equivalent: 20 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!

I don't know what a "Smoothie King" is, but the name just sounds like a heart attack waiting to happen!

It is like people that suck down 2-3 bottles of vitamin water at 100 calories per serving every day and wonder why they're chubby! Hrm? I wonder.

Lemme let you in on some clues and not secrets that most of America doesn't seem to know!

Eating fast food of any kind is NOT healthy! No, having only one piece of KFC or one Whopper does NOT mean you are eating healthy.

Soda is NOT healthy, never, ever. Stop drinking that crap, it'll kill you.

Having deep fried vegetables does NOT mean you are eating your vegetables.

Eating any kind of smoothie at a place like Krispy Kreme, and or McDonald's, any place you can drive through is NOT healthy.

Ordering vegetables with your dinner, but pushing them to the side, does NOT count as eating them.

Bacon is not it's own food group, and is NOT healthy.

I mean, really people, do you not know anything?

It amazes me that people are now making millions of dollars telling people what not to eat! Why didn't I think of this years ago?

Oh because I figured most people have common sense.


  1. Haha, I read these all the time, but I don't know why. These "studies" are just keepin' some people in business. They have to put something out there, even if it's obvious.

  2. These are the eatables that will tickle your taste buds but cant be incorporated in your regular meal. They should be used once in a while.

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

I Love Flying--It's My Only Quiet Time

Drawing by me, Stephanie Olivieri may not be used without permission. THANKS
I have several trips coming up this spring and while I don't like the idea of winter weather while flying I do love flying and here is why.  1. No one can reach me while I'm on a plane so I get that alone time I so desperately need.  2. I get to do nothing and it's okay. It's okay that I'm not at the gym or doing squats at my house, it's okay that I'm not working on anything-I'm on a plane so yay, it's okay to do nothing.  3. It's soothing to my soul to be up in the clouds.  4. You can eat, drink, sleep, and watch TV/movies while getting to your destination.  5. I love to meet other people so while I'm not that annoying chatty seatmate, I do enjoy meeting others. 

AIRPORTS. I love them. I love everything about them. 
I know I'm strange, but I implore you to enjoy your next flight. Think about the fact that you are just there to relax and get to your next city, …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
