Which Halloween Candy is Worse for You?

The sad part is which delightful, popular candy tops the list as the WORST CANDY YOU COULD POSSIBLY WANT TO EAT FOR HALLOWEEN (or anytime of year).  Watch the video to discover the horrible, horrible truth.

Who eats more meat, China or the US? (You’ll be surprised by the answer)


By web gangsta | Published:

People in China are stereotypically believed to live longer, healthier lives – primarily based on their dietary habits. And as stereotypes go, that’s really not a bad judgement call to make on anyone’s part. Who wouldn’t want to be naturally considered healthier than those around you, solely based on your heritage or where you currently live?

Well, perhaps there’s something more at steak (HA!) than what we think is happening, diet-wise.

The secret to losing weight is who you eat with, not what you eat


By web gangsta | Published:

Everybody is always on some sort of diet, and all diets basically end up being the same thing:

Eat less than your body needs for fuel.

So if you eat a lot, you need to exercise more.  If you don’t exercise a lot, then you should eat less.  And the types of foods you eat should be considered relatively “healthy” compared to cookies, cake, and ice cream.

Remember, kids – “delicious” doesn’t always equate to “good for you”.

By web gangsta | Published:

What is your favorite way to exercise, burn off some calories?

Do you wear your FITBIT and try to get in your 10,000 steps every day?  Do you step it up a notch and jog a little bit instead of merely running?  Jogging is supposed to be the best form of exercise you can get, right?

Or are you more of a bicycle enthusiast, riding your bike for 20 miles because you can?

Want to lose weight? Fruits and vegetables won’t help


By web gangsta | Published:

Everybody seems to be on some sort of diet these days.

And for the most part, diets do their job of reducing caloric intake and helping people lose their desired weight (when combined with a proper exercise program, of course).

But as we’ve said in the past, some diets are better than others.  But the core of most diets are that you should be able to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables.

Or maybe not.

By web gangsta | Published:

When you’re on a diet, you tend to dramatically change your eating habits in order to comply with the menu you’ve put together.

Extreme Weight Loss tip: take off your thong underpants


By web gangsta | Published:

If you have a scale at home, how do you weigh yourself?

Most people agree that it really doesn’t matter how you weigh yourself, as long as however you do it, you do it consistently.  Always weigh yourself before your shower, after your shower, in the morning, at night — whatever you choose, just keep doing the same thing every time.

How much weight does the average person gain at Christmas?


By web gangsta | Published:

What did you have to eat for Thanksgiving?

If you were anything like the average American family, your Thanksgiving meal likely looked something like this:

  • Turkey (of course).  And eaten with the skin
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Dressing, lots of bread
  • Rolls, even more bread
  • Sweet potatoes.  With or without marshmallows
  • Pie.  Lots of pie.
  • Don’t forget the gravy

And that’s all just the appetizer course.  Remember all the cheese, shrimp, crackers, beef stick, and other snacks you also ate during the game?

Lose weight by eating chocolate


By web gangsta | Published:

Whenever you visit your doctor, they’ll invariably say the same thing – “you need to lose some weight”.

It doesn’t matter how much over your percentile weight class you are, it’s as if doctors are pre-programmed to say this to every one of their patients, no matter how seemingly healthy they are.

Sure, Web Watch was told by our physician once — once, we’ll stress — that we needed to put a few pounds on to maintain a healthy equilibrium, but this was truly an exception rather than a rule.

If you want to lose weight, don’t chew gum


By web gangsta | Published:

Losing weight is a constant battle for some.  And as Web Watch has told you previously, it really all comes down to taking in fewer calories than you burn up in a day.  Sure, there are other influences involved, such as the family gene pool or other non-controllable items — but for the vast majority of us, weight loss really is about reducing our food intake in a smart manner.

You know all those stories about college girls gaining weight in their first year of school?  The dreaded “Freshman 15”?

Yeah, it’s a total lie.

That’s right — freshmen do NOT gain 15 extra pounds when they’re away at college due to the awesomeness of the college cafeteria meal plan. Continue reading THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS THE “FRESHMAN 15”. (THE CAKE IS ALSO A LIE.)
