Tackle the Monday Night Football Munchies

Health & Fitness in the ’90s I have been in the fitness industry for over 25 years.

Oh No! It’s Fatball Season! The Dieter’s Survival Guide

So it’s football season and, for football fans, this means football, friends and a lot of food – followed by a lot of weight gain.

Low-Fat Tuna Pasta Salad

I had some extra tuna in the pantry so I decided to make a cold tuna salad to make easy go-to snacks. As you probably know, it’s hard to eat on the go. You don’t always have a microwave handy, so it’s great to have a cold meal that’s travels easily.  While protein bars are always …
