Sticking to Your New Years Goals Part 4/4: “I want to stop overeating.”

OK, here is the last post of this series. Many people who decide they want to eat healthier don’t realize that it’s not just about what you eat, but about how you eat. The biggest factor in weight gain is calories. Eating more calories than your body is burning in a given day will result […]

Sticking to Your New Years Goals Part 3: “I want to eat breakfast everyday.”

While breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, it is often the hardest to implement. Morning-times tend to be rushed; you overslept, you have to get the kids ready for school and make it to work on time, you can’t find your keys. It’s no wonder why so many people skip it. […]

Sticking to Your New Years Goals Part 2: “I want to cut back on sugar.”

If you’re looking to cut back sugar this year, then you are on the right track. Excess sugar, particularly added sugars, can not only lead to weight gain but also diabetes, heart disease and tooth decay.

Sticking to Your New Years Goals Part 1: “I want to eat healthy.”

By now we’ve all made our New Year’s resolutions; laid them out in writing, pondered over them, and talked ourselves into the new and improved person we want to become.

Yoga, Spirituality and Islam: Can They Coexist?

The practice of yoga is quite controversial within the Islamic religion and amongst its scholars. While I don’t condemn anyone’s personal or religious beliefs, I personally do not consider yoga to be haram (forbidden). I myself have benefited from the yoga practice in more ways than one, even religiously. Many people falsely believe that certain […]
