• Fall Products I Love & Hate

    In today’s vlog I give a roundup up 2 products I love and 1 product I hate. It’s my Fall special of showcases and no case that I think you’ll love. I’m talking my favorite cures for the common cold, simple and delicious frozen food, and taking yoga challenges to task. Tune in and then […]

  • Product No Case: The Quantum Scale

     If you know me at all, you know that I’m not a fan of obsessing over the scale. And I recently came across this scale called The Quantum. The premise is actually an interesting one. Rather than telling you what you weigh, it stores your weight from the first time you step on it and […]

  • Product No Case: 100 calorie packs by Nabisco

     I periodically review products that I personally think are pretty crappy. Products that tout themselves as health food or diet food but don’t do much more than set you up for overeating while providing no nutritional value. Do not get me wrong. I am totally a proponent of incorporating food into your diet that is […]

  • Product No Case: Arctic Zero

    A big thank you to my anonymous blogger who wrote this post for my site. I thoroughly enjoyed every line and think you will too! Remember, these product “no case” postings are intended to highlight products out there that tout themselves as health food, but are anything but nourishing! Talk about a wolf in sheep’s […]

  • Product No Case: Shirtaki Noodles

    I just saw an advertisement that made my stomach turn: “The Miracle Noodle: imagine the world where noodles are calorie free.” If you know me at all, you know that I am screaming “noooo!!!” While a large percentage of the US population may go crazy for calorie-free food, I dig in my heels and cringe. […]

  • Product No Case: Full Bar

    All too often, a product appears that causes me to shake my head in disappointment. The latest product? Fullbar, a granola-type bar that claims to help you “feel full and satisfied on smaller amounts of food”. Developed by a bariatric surgeon (Dr. Snyder), the bar’s use is simple: consume with 8 ounces of water 30 […]

  • Product No Case: Guest Blogger Janel Ovrut

    Product No Case: Vitamin WaterPicture Source It took me absolutely no time to come up with a No Case food for this blog post. I’m from the school of thought that all foods can fit in a healthy diet, but there are a handful of “foods” that I truly believe have absolutely no place in […]

  • Product No Case: HCG Supplements

    January 16-22 is Health Weight Week. I love their 3-fold mission:1. Celebrate diet-free habits2. Prevent eating & weight problems3. Work towards being accepting, happy, and healthy at our natural weights On the Healthy Weight Week website, they name their 2010 “Slim Chance Award Winners” for the worst weight products of the year. These horrible weight […]

  • Product No Case: Yoplait YoPlus

    Have you noticed that they just don’t make yogurt like they used to?  It’s weird.  Yogurt is now loaded with everything from added fibers, strains of bacteria, artificial sweeteners, Vitamin D, and probably some other things I haven’t named.  And unfortunately, most of the label claims aren’t back by research and are just simply misleading. […]

  • Product No Case: Lean Cuisine

    I have a pet peeve- Lean Cuisine. They masquerade as a good for you, weight friendly option. When in reality, they leave plenty to be desired in terms of nutrition, taste, and health benefits. Why?  1. From a caloric standpoint, Lean Cuisines are more like a large snack. All my clients and readers know I’m […]
