  • Sugar Addiction Detox 101
    Sugar, sweet sugar—a delightful minute on the tongue in exchange for what feels like a lifetime on the hips. But weight gain isn't the only consequence of eating too much sugar. Ready for the not-so-sweet truth? Overconsumption of processed sugar can contribute to a number of conditions, including tooth decay and type 2 diabetes, while cutting back on sugar can help you shed excess weight, increase your energy, and improve your concentration. Ready to kick-start your sugar detox?

  • 5 Tips for Getting More Whole Fruit in Your Diet
    All right, so no processed sugar. High fructose corn syrup is definitely out of the question. And now science is finally proving that all those artificially sweetened sodas we've been quaffing so virtuously are just as bad for us as sugar is, and probably worse. What's someone with a sweet tooth to do? The answer is the fruit, the whole fruit, and nothing but the fruit. While fruit juice contains some vitamins, you're really missing out on the lion's share of nutrients if you deprive yourself of the whole fruit.
  • Carbs: Friend or Foe?
    Contrary to certain diet fads, carbohydrates are an essential part of daily nutrition. But not all carbs are created equal. Find out which ones will help you achieve your fitness goals, and which ones will likely stand in your way.
  • Recipe: Low-Fat Plum Bran Muffins
    Dump the donut and scrap the scone. This is a low-sugar, low-fat alternative to get your day off to a healthy start. By combining the natural sweetness of fruit with heart-healthy fiber, you'll never miss the sugar and grease.
  • The 8-Week Transition Diet
    The 6-Week Transition Diet was one of the first things I ever wrote for Beachbody®, way back in 2001. It's remained popular ever since; in fact, in 2005, I gave it a facelift and increased it from 6 weeks to 8. Five years on, it's time to dust it off and spruce it up for the modern age.

  • The Tao of Beachbody
    Everyone loves that old Tony Horton chestnut, "Do your best and forget the rest." It's catchy and insightful, and it sticks in your brain like only a good mantra can. But here's something you might not know about this little bon mot. It's also part of a 2,500-year-old Asian philosophy called Taoism that's prevalent in most things Beachbody. Taoism espouses moderation in all things and has had a huge influence on our society, as it's informed the decisions of heads of state, rock stars, and, most importantly, our Beachbody trainers.

    A recent study, which covered cookbook recipes over the last several decades, discovered that calorie counts have gone up dramatically as authors have increased portion sizes to conform to new cultural norms. Lower costs of food and larger plate sizes are theorized as part of the reason for the increase, but nutritionist Marion Nestle says that mainly it's just a reflection of people becoming accustomed to eating more and more overall. What can we do to monitor and control portion sizes?

    While personal health and fitness are typically the reasons people come to Beachbody, we're not blind to the fact that certain outside motivators are sometimes necessary to kick-start you into shape.

  • The Beachbody® 8-Step Game Plan to Dining Out
    There was a time not too long ago when dining out was a rare and exciting treat. People would get dressed up, spend hours lingering over a meal, and remember the experience fondly for days or even weeks. Today, dining out is often more common than eating a home-cooked meal. But for those of us following a fitness plan for any length of time, dining out can be inconvenient and sometimes a tiny bit scary. But making the right choices is easier than you think, and willpower has more to do with preparation than tenacity.

  • Nuclear Nutrition: Safe, Tasty, and Healthy Microwaving
    If someone told you they were going to buy a nuclear radiation-emitting machine, put it in the most-used room in their house, and then prepare food with it, you'd look at them like they were crazy. Conversely, if that same person told you they were going to buy a new microwave for their kitchen, you'd probably think it was no big deal—because it really isn't. Technology has granted us the ability to harness a potentially dangerous process and use it to save time, effort, and money when preparing meals. However, just like with any type of cooking, making microwave fare nutritious and delicious requires a little thought.

Some people eliminate gluten in hopes of alleviating digestive issues like abdominal pain and bloating. Others claim going gluten-free helps them overcome fatigue. Still more people think it'll help them lose weight faster.

  • Cereal Killer: Are Grains Really That Bad for You?
    Everyone loves a good villain. Be it Darth Vader, Bernard Madoff, or Cruella De Vil, we feel better when we have someone to collectively hate. The same holds true for nutrition. It's great to have one evil, toxic food out there to despise, because if we can avoid that food, all will be well in our world. Health, fitness, and longevity will fall into place, just like that. Although Atkins™, gluten intolerance, and paleo dieting have all instilled the notion that grains are problem-causers with little nutritional value, I don't buy it. Grain just doesn't deserve the across-the-board vilification it's getting. In moderation, for most people, it's a healthy part of a balanced diet.

Similarly, by creating new social networks or by influencing already-existing health-related groups, new positive health messages will become contagious.

  • Could Those Extra Pounds Be Water Weight? Lose 'Em Fast!
    Ever wonder how you gained 5 pounds overnight—even when you're cutting calories? The usual culprit is water weight. If your stomach feels bloated, your face looks puffy, or your hands and feet swell, it's likely that your body is retaining water. Your body is constantly trying to rid itself of the salt you consume. When it can't purge all the extra salt, your tissues react by holding on to water, so the ratio of salt to water is always at a safe level. But if you want to determine your real weight, see how close you are to your fitness goals, and button up those old jeans with ease, follow these quick tips to lose the extra water weight—fast.

While he might have removed the bags from under his eyes, Elvis' crash diet did nothing to help him cram into that jumpsuit, and he ended up gaining 10 pounds.

    The Greek poet Homer called it "liquid gold." It's mentioned in the Bible, the Talmud, and the Koran. Greek mythology includes the story of the goddess Athena winning great praise from Zeus for her useful invention of the olive tree. For millennia, the olive tree has been a symbol of peace, purification, and good health. And in recent years, we've all heard the good news that the high-fat oil of the olive fruit is actually good for you. Is it possible that olive oil merits the reverence of ancient Mediterranean culture and the respect of the medical establishment of the West? And if so, what's the real scoop on how to get the most benefit and enjoyment from olive oil?

Having an arsenal of tasty dressing recipes can help you keep climbing Michi's Ladder to a healthy lifestyle—here's a great Dijon dressing that's easy to whip up and will add tanginess, zinginess, and other fun stuff ending in "-iness" to your next salad.

    Choosing a healthy lifestyle is not, unfortunately, one of those "set it and forget it" decisions. Instead, it's a result of many smaller choices we make every day—with every meal. Every snack.

That will give you a fighting chance to succeed. So where do you begin? Identifying your weaknesses is the first step. Figure out where you're likely to slip up, and you can take action to prevent it.

You achieve the best results during a workout when your target heart rate matches a song's tempo (both measured in beats per minute), making the music feel like a natural, organic extension of you. How does one match to a song's BPM?

    When I turned 40 this past February, one of the pledges I made was to look and feel much better than I had at 39, or at 38, 37, or 36, for that matter. I'd become pudgy and very out of shape through a combination of a badly broken toe that stranded me on crutches for months, terrible eating habits, and, of course, no exercise other than stumping around on those sticks. Sick of how I was feeling and looking, I made up my mind that by the Big 4-0, I was going to be fabulous!

  • "Fall" Back into Shape: An End-of-Summer Health and Fitness Checklist
    The end of summer is nearly upon us, which means it's time to put those bikinis and Speedos® back in the closet, and get back to those boring, less anatomically revealing, yet necessary parts of our lives, like work and school. No matter how much you boo and hiss, the dawning of fall reminds us that there are other responsibilities in life besides barbecues, beaches, and killer tans. Change is in the crisp autumn air, and with it comes a host of new activities and obstacles that can very easily knock you off the health and fitness wagon. Beachbody's here to help, and we'd like to present you with a handy end-of-summer checklist so you can make a smooth and easy transition back into the daily grind.

  • 10 Healthy Snacks for Couch Time
    Fall is upon us, which means that the new TV season has begun, baseball is heading into the postseason, and football is starting up. The weather's getting cooler, and the couch will soon call for you to lie down on it. Now, keep in mind we're not encouraging any couch potato behavior. We'd prefer you pop in a P90X video and use the couch as a towel rack. But we're all human, and it's almost impossible to resist the siren song of a playoff game or the return of Glee or Dancing with the Stars. Just because you're taking a couple of hours off to flatten both your gluteal muscles and your sofa cushions doesn't mean you have to stuff yourself with chips, cookies, or other bagged diet-killers.
