Every year losing weight seems harder to do. You’re not imagining it; it is harder. Your metabolism is slowing down.
After age 30, our metabolisms slow 2 to 5 percent every ten years. Compared to age 25, you burn about 100 fewer calories daily at age 35 and 200 less per day at 45. That means you could gain as much as 12 pounds a year - without eating a single extra calorie!
Spring starts March 20th! After a long winter, most of us have work to do to be ready for warm-weather wardrobes. Time to purify your system and get your weight back on track. Here’s how all-natural True Lemon and other favorite True Citrus flavors can help.
To kick off your whole body Spring cleaning, you can try fasting for one to three days -- if you’ve got the willpower. Or get rid of internal clutter by switching to a no-dairy, no-meat diet for a week. Or just drink more water!
Ghrelin. Rhymes with gellin’, melon, and boy-my-feet-are-swellin’.
Why care about ghrelin? Because it might hold the key to dieting success instead of dieting failure.
New game! We’ll name a beverage and you guess the result from drinking it!
Hey buddy - spare an electron?
Here at True Citrus, we talk a lot about how dehydration can lead to exhaustion, muscle fatigue and even stroke.
But there’s a new theory about what our bodies are calling out for. And we’re scratching our heads over it – and hoping some of our science-minded True Citrus customers will clue us in!
We went on a stroll several weekends ago around the neighborhood, stretching our legs and airing out the dog, who had to be pried from his warm cushion inside. During our walk we happened upon a strange sight in a wooded lot nearby.
At the woods edge, a man and a woman were sorting through at least ten huge black garbage bags. Their hands were covered with thick gloves, their heads were wool-capped against the chill. Steamy breath escaped from their faces as they worked over the bags, their backs bent low.
It’s time to put energy drinks in your rearview where they belong.
Instead, rev up with all-natural, zero-calorie True Citrus flavors and nature’s finest performance fuel, water!
These days, buying fruits, vegetables, eggs and meats grown close to our homes is the new trend.
“Locavores” help the environment since local foods don’t use as much fuel for transportation. They improve their health since local foods don’t need preservatives. And locavores help their community’s economy by keeping small farmers in business. So definitely, buying locally-made food is a fabulous thing!
February is not just for Valentine’s, it’s also American Heart Month. And this year both come at a time when new research tells us that fried foods might not be as bad for our hearts as we thought!
Fried foods have long been linked to high blood pressure, cholesterol problems and of course weight gain. These are all risk factors for heart disease, so common that every year, womens’ deaths from heart disease outnumber deaths from all cancers combined.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and showing your better “half” a little extra TLC has always been considered absolutely necessary during this hallmark holiday. (As if you weren’t showing enough the other 364 days of the year, right?) Well, if you’re anything like us, we're a bit skeptical about February 14th - all of the hype and anticipation over a dozen red roses and countless boxes of chocolate. However, many of you still deem this satisfactory and appropriate for a holiday that screams love and affection. All we're left with to contemplate is a few empty calories and a lack of creativity.
