Full House Star’s Bulimia Battle

Posted by on Dec 31, 2010 in Health, Nutrition | Comments Off on Full House Star’s Bulimia Battle

I just saw a short video clip about Candace Cameron Bure, who played DJ Tanner on the popular 90’s TV show Full House. In the clip, it talks about Candace Cameron Bure’s battle with Bulimia. What I found interesting was that Candace didn’t become bulimic to lose weight, it was due to emotional issues she was facing. She didn’t become bulimic until right after the Full House show ended, which she then moved to Canada with her new husband. Perhaps all the changes were too much stress for the young actress? Right now, Candace is at a healthy weight. She credits her much healthier figure to eating all foods in moderation and exercising regularly. To find out more about Candace Cameron Bure, check out her new book, Reshaping it ALL. Image Credit: Feel free to follow us, however you like: Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest Feel free to...

Posted by on Dec 30, 2010 in Health | 6 comments

So many people tell me that the biggest reason they aren’t eating healthy is because they can’t afford to. I am here to set the record straight: Yes, you CAN afford to eat healthy. Chances are, you just choose not to. Eating healthy is a choice, and here’s some healthy foods that are within your budget. Tip: Create a meal plan. When I first got married, my husband created a grocery shopping rule: I could only buy what’s on the grocery list that I had already created. This led me to create better meal plans! A big way to save money is to create a detailed meal plan. Just add any items you need to your grocery list. Do this well in advance, and never plan on an empty stomach. By doing this, it has been a huge way...

Treatments for Dry Skin

Posted by on Dec 16, 2010 in Natural Solutions | Comments Off on Treatments for Dry Skin

There are several reasons you can end up with  dry skin. Depending on the severity of your dry skin, you can end up with the ever annoying itchy skin or sadly suffer from cracks and bleeding skin. I’ve listed some some easy ways you can naturally treat your dry skin, and if you have cracked or dry skin…please act sooner rather than later. Lather up Dry skin can be easily relieved by lotion or aloe vera gel (known fact, right? Read on…). Lotion is an immediate relief to dry skin, but it doesn’t necessarily resolve the underlying issue. It’s important to find a lotion that is all natural and paraben-free. The only way to know if your lotion of choice is really safe is to read the labels. Stay Hydrated A sign of dehydration is dry skin, so be sure to...
