    Recipe: Turkey stuffed peppers

    Hey fam! Alyssa here, just wanted to share a spin on a family favorite that my mom always made when I was a kid. Sometimes, we just want some good ole' comfort food, some food from our childhood...the challenge is that those types of food usually don't fit well when it comes to reaching weight loss or fat loss goals. One of my favorite things to do is take recipes that I loved as a kid and put a healthier spin on them. Now that DOESN'T mean that I never have the original recipes every once in a while, but I definitely don't have them every week. Stuffed peppers was always an easy dish that we would have when my mom didn't want to cook dinner for the rest of the week. Now, it's a meal ....

    4 strategies for staying motivated

    How do I stay motivated? This is one of the most common questions we get asked. Most of us feel highly motivated when we start something new--a new workout program, a new diet. But inevitably, we reach a point where we're just not that into it. The novelty wears off, our schedule changes, we get a rough night of name it.

  • The 5 Essentials for Fat Loss

    The 5 Essentials for Fat Loss

    When folks talk about losing weight, most don't mean they just want the number on the scale to go down. What they really want is their body to change the way it looks, even the way it feels: for example, fitting into small sizes of clothing comfortably. Two people can weight the exact same on the scale but have totally different body fat percentages and look completely different. This change in the way your body looks is called body recomposition. Recomposition means you're lowering your body fat percentage, and in some cases increase muscle mass to give your body a whole different look and feel! So how do you lose fat? Below are the 5 essentials to help you lose fat and gain the body ....
