Healthy Eating

If You Use Common Sense The Answer Is Obvious

Life happens in a structured order. The same goes for how your body functions and responds. It’s part of the natural order of things, and for people looking for a quick fix then the way the body - and nature - works can prove to be disappointing. In today’s world of “I want it and [...]

The Secret They Don’t Want You To Know About!

Diets. We’ve all either tried at least one or know someone who has. It may have been some new fad diet, a diet that’s been around in one form or another for years (whether it’s effective or not), some absurd diet endorsed by some popular celebrity, or something that requires magical natural supplements available in [...]

Goodbye 215, Hello 180

(Last month member Quentin Turner wrote to us to share his experience that led to his making a lifestyle change and making Pinamonti Wellness Center a part of it. We liked his letter so much that we made it this month’s blog piece and Quentin our Featured Member of the Month. Way to go Quentin!) I’m [...]

For TJ Barnow, There’s Getting In Shape, Plus a Greater Motivation

Back when we were teens and in high school being thin was not something we really had to work at. With metabolisms that functioned, seemingly in overdrive all of the time, we could pretty much eat what we wanted and it wasn’t usually an issue as far as weight and overall heath were concerned (not counting acne, [...]

Stella Hastings Changed Her Goal And Changed Her Life

Her “before and after” pictures show considerable weight loss and strength gain, but Stella Hastings’ real strength goes far beyond what you see in these pictures. If one were to look for the personification of dedication, resolve, and discipline … Stella would be it. But it wasn’t always that way. “I had yo-yo'd so many [...]

I often hear people say, “This is the year I’ll lose 20 pounds!  This is the year I’ll exercise 3 times per week!  This is the year I’ll eat better!”  The list goes on and on [...]

New Year’s Resolutions

Rarely in the history of mankind has anything had as high a failure rate as New Year’s Resolutions. (Is there anything out there that fails more? Sure, but they’d have to be pushing a 100% rate of failure … say, for instance, financial advisors, spam email, and possibly this season’s Cleveland Browns). So what is [...]

The Ever Expanding Universe and Your Waistline

This month marks the 100th Anniversary of Einstein’s theory of General Relativity, and that means PARTY TIME!  But before you begin your celestial celebration, keep in mind that aspects of the theory of general relativity (or rather, where the theory is weak (that’s a joke in itself)) could mean that eating too much party food [...]

Eat Clean

In today’s fast paced society we all struggle to find time to cook. Between work, family, and taking care of the day to day aspects of life we are eating out more often. While there is no doubt that eating out is convenient, it is not something you should do for every meal! If you [...]
