How to be Lazy and Stay Thin
I hate to admit this, but I can be very lazy when it comes to some things. In most areas of my life, I am super motivated. I’ll stay up until 1 am writing a blog post or surfing the web to find the perfect matching furniture for my office. But when it comes to food shopping or cooking – I am LAZY! It may sound strange to hear this from a nutritionist, but it’s true! I think it’s because I am so tired at the end of the day, the last thing I want to do is wash/slice/dice/cook or wait in long supermarket lines. I know that many of you are the same way. But it doesn’t have to be a bad thing. You just need to find a way to make it work for you like I did. Being the “realistic” nutritionist that I am, I am here to problem solve how to stay lean if you too tired to cook/lazy to cook. Read full post here.

How I am Taming My Sugar Cravings
For those of you who read my blog, you’ve likely seen various posts about my “issues” with chocolate and/or sugar. I bet many of you have the same issues so you can relate. But as a nutritionist, my job is to problem solve (including my own problems) – so here goes! I’ve come up with a solution that’s helping me tame my sugar cravings. Like most of you, I tend to work 10+ hour days and don’t have a lot of time to think about food. I get home late and have a quick dinner. That’s when the trouble starts. I’ll comb through my miniature kitchen in search of something sweet. The ridiculous thing is, like most New Yorker’s, I don’t keep much food in my apartment. These are the few staples I always have on hand: coffee, Greek Yogurt, 2% plain and flavored, Fiber One Cereal, apples or other fruit and some kind of sweetener for my coffee. I rarely keep tempting snack foods around. So what am I hoping to find? Despite the fact I keep minimal food in my apartment, I would still manage to find something sugary. Read full post here.

45 Healthy Breakfasts on the Run
No time for breakfast? You aren’t alone. The snooze button usually wins over getting up early to eat! We often end up grabbing breakfast on the run. The problem is that these “on the run” meals can be deceptively high in calories, carbs, fat and/or sodium. Not a great way to start the day. The wrong kind of breakfast will cause energy levels to plummet, cause cravings later in the day and pack on the pounds. And if you have diabetes, prediabetes, PCOS, or are trying to watch your weight, the last thing you want to do is load up with over 50 grams of carbs at breakfast! While the ideal solution would be to take 5 minutes to eat a healthy breakfast at home, this isn’t always possible. So I’ve compiled a list of my Top 45 Healthy Breakfasts on the Run choices from 11 popular NYC restaurants including Fresh & Co, Pret, Pax, Europa, Le Pain Quotidien, Dunkin Donuts, etc. There are healthy choices out there!

Why is it So Hard to Keep Weight Off?
Losing weight is only half the battle. Keeping it off is where most people fail. How many times have you vowed not to put those pound back on … only to see the scale creeping up? And you’re not eating nearly as much as you used to. Weight regain occurs for numerous reasons but some of them are insidious. The body has sneaky ways of trying to put that weight back on. The good news is that you CAN keep the weight off. But it helps to understand why it is so difficult – forewarned is forearmed. Lately I’ve quite a few successful losers in my private practice who have lost 30+ pounds. I have the utmost respect for someone who can stay so disciplined for extended periods of time to achieve this loss. But what a cruel trick the body plays on you when you have to fight to keep this weight off. Read full post here
