You know the struggle, never knowing which extreme your office will be from one day to the next — it’s either burning hot or freezing cold, with seemingly no in-between. Frankly, it raises a lot of questions. How do you dress for this? Are there rules about space heaters? Is it Friday yet? And then
Snacking is an art form. When you find the ideal morsels that can travel easily and actually taste good while still being good for you, it can feel like striking gold. After a long search, we’ve found some healthy snacks that we can munch on guilt-free. Sometimes we want something sweet; other times it’s something

This trendy appliance uses just a small amount of oil to give foods the same golden, crispy outside you’d expect from deep frying, but with less fat and fewer calories in each bite. And that’s the
Today in things you wish you didn’t know: a new survey shows that 45 percent of Americans wear the same pair of underwear for two days or longer. Meanwhile, 13 percent took things several steps further, admitting they’d worn the same pair for a week or more. No word on whether these respondents made use
As much as I love my long, 10-mile runs, they put my body through the ringer. Yoga — and especially this 17-move sequence — has become my absolute savior for releasing and rejuvenating all the muscles that tighten up on long runs: hips, hamstrings, back, and calves. Even on my rushed weekday morning runs when

A dairy-free lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to live a life free of chocolate. Nor does it mean your relationship with chocolate has to be bland or boring. Sure, it’s easy enough to make your own sweet, dairy-free treats at home, but let’s face it, there’s not always enough time in the day for that.
“The turning point when I knew I had a problem was when I passed out during my final exams due to my blood pressure being out of control,” Jasmine Satterfield (@theejazshow on Instagram) told POPSUGAR. After that fainting spell, she knew she had to change, but was scared to. “I visited my doctor and she
Recently, I’ve been feeling a little wary on my runs. Put it down to my recent true crime binge (don’t talk to me about Ted Bundy right now), the fact that my morning runs are getting darker and darker as Summer wanes, or the all-too-frequent attacks on female runners we never seem to stop hearing
Carbs aren’t the only thing you should track on a low-carb diet. A healthy amount of protein will keep you satisfied between meals and help build muscle, both of which are essential for weight loss. But exactly how much protein should you eat? “I like to look at macronutrients as a see-saw, with protein as
Enjoying a pint of ice cream without the added guilt is about to get a whole lot easier because Enlightened Ice Cream is getting the keto treatment. The low-calorie ice cream brand just announced its plans to release an all-new line of keto ice cream that will contain less than 1 gram of sugar and
When it comes to getting healthier and toning up your body, one of the most popular of the countless options out there right now is intermittent fasting (or IF, for short). IF includes several different approaches to choose from, but most involve eating for only a short period of time during the day and/or limiting
Like many people, I once used phrases like “love your curves” and “love yourself.” I worked as a personal trainer for nearly a decade in New York City, where the majority of my clients came to me because they hated their bodies and wanted to feel confident and “good enough” for perhaps the first time
Bouts of stress and anxiety sneak up on all of us, but this year, I’ve made it my mission not to let them beat me down. When I start to feel panicked, I try to take inventory of the situation, and focus on gaining perspective. Usually, I find that my stress is self-inflicted. It might

When it comes to meditation, if you’re anything like me, you might be skeptical about it and need a little push. It’s hard to focus on your own (have you tried to sit in silence while your thoughts play patty-cake with your mind?!), but you can get the push you need in the form of
Whether you’re a running newbie or have logged hundreds of miles, no one is immune to the sudden, debilitating, painful cramp in your side. Sometimes referred to as a side stitch, we asked experts to tell us what causes them and, more importantly, what you can do during a run to stop a cramp fast.
Anyone that’s ever tried to diet — or at least eat healthier — knows that the struggle to find foods that are both healthy and flavorful is real. Very real. But there is one reliable protein that should be every healthy eater’s go-to: boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Whether you’re highlighting the simplicity of the food
In spectacular news that we saw coming, the GOAT just made history again. Simone Biles won the 2019 US Gymnastics Championships in Kansas City, MO, with a two-night total of 118.500 (she led after the first night on Aug. 9 with a 58.650). This victory marked her sixth US all-around title, which is the first
Let’s be real: We always need new leggings, and as much fun as it is to shop for them, it’s even more fun when they’re on sale. When we go to put our favorite pairs in our shopping cart, and they just so happen to be discounted, it feels like a national holiday. Summer is
Whether you love or loathe morning workouts, you have to admit they have some advantages. But is one of them weight loss? Yes, according to a new study, which found that people who worked out in the morning lost significantly more weight than those who exercised after noon. Were they just working out more often?
Full-body strength-training exercises are key for fat loss — which is why we’ve gathered these 12 trainer-recommended moves to choose from — but why are these exercises so critical? “A lot of people think that the best way to shed fat is by doing lots of steady cardio. You can lose fat that way, but
For us, weekend mornings mean sleeping in, chilling out in pajamas for as long as possible, and having a big brunch. Specifically, when we have bagels, the day just starts off on the right foot. But, if you’re sticking to a keto diet, bagels can be tough because of their high carbohydrate content. Well, not

When I signed up for a weeklong silent meditation retreat, I was looking forward to some peace and quiet, to deepening my meditation practice, and to having no choice but to unplug. When the first day actually arrived, I spent the six-hour train ride to the retreat center manically scrolling through Instagram-famous ferrets and art
Competing in the Olympics multiple times is hard for any type of athlete. As a gymnast, it’s even harder, and Gabby Douglas knows that. It’s not just about the physical demand — though that’s a huge part — it’s mental, too. “Once you have a taste of freedom after the Olympics, you have to go
For over eight hours every weekday, thanks to my content-driven (but totally worth it!) desk job, I’m a sloucher. It’s hard not to be when you’re staring at a screen, knee-deep in an article about STI testing, hormonal belly fat, or Jason Momoa’s muscles. Sometimes I slouch when I’m standing, too. I did gymnastics for
My husband and I met in college, where we were both student athletes. Today, we’ve traded sports practices and class schedules for the stresses of adulthood — namely, juggling careers while parenting our two children. So, once a year, we try to get away, just the two of us. Early on, it only made sense
As I do with all new Trader Joe’s products I discover while joyfully walking the aisles, I screamed a little when I saw this Trader Joe’s Chocolate Hummus! I often make my own using dates and maple syrup, but sometimes, you just don’t feel like whipping out your food processor. We’re so grateful that Trader
