Once you put on a pair of fleece-lined leggings, there’s no turning back. They are just so cozy and do such a good job of keeping you warm and comfortable on long runs or weekend hikes. They’re also perfect for yoga, Pilates, or lying on the couch. Seriously, if we could, we’d live in these.
CBD isn’t just for headshops and your hippie cousin — it’s gone full mainstream. CBD has made its way into gummies, creams, tinctures, tea, and even oil for your dog.

When people are looking to lose weight, they typically want whatever will get them results as fast as possible. In reality, there is no such thing as a quick fix for weight loss. Juice cleanses, strict low-calorie diets, and “detoxes” deliver more hype than actual results. Sure, the scale may go down as you lose
As the holiday season approaches, pumpkin spice gives way to peppermint-flavored everything. Nowhere is this more apparent than at Trader Joe’s, which unveils tasty chocolate-peppermint treats such as Candy Cane Joe Joe’s, peppermint ice cream cones, and chocolate peppermint almond beverage come Winter.

We’ve discussed before how much cardio and strength training you should be doing, but what most people are really wondering is how often to train your abs. To find out the answer, I reached out to four separate trainers who each differ in their specialties. Here’s what you need to do to chisel out that
My intermittent fasting (IF) journey began at the end of February 2017. I only researched for a few days before diving headfirst into this eating style, so most of what I’ve learned has happened along the way.

Halle Berry’s Instagram is hands down one of our favorite celebrity accounts to follow. Not only do we get a dose of all the fun stuff she’s doing, but we also get to see how she trains and eats, thanks to her #FitnessFriday series. A few weeks ago, Halle shared her go-to keto pasta recipe
To answer the question of which cardio machine is the best for weight loss, I’m going to train you all to be lawyers (and for a lot less time and money than you would spend for law school). The answer to this, and almost all legal questions is, “it all depends.” This is a universally
Let’s face it: the holidays are stressful. Between the crowded holiday shopping frenzy to forced time with family to hosting a party for dozens of people, it’s easy to get burned out. And your friends and family members are probably feeling the exact same way. Make sure they relax and unwind with these 15 self-care
Despite how normalized happy hour and nightly glasses of wine may have become in our collective experiences of adulthood, the side effects that come with alcohol consumption are quite sobering. Alcohol misuse can lead to issues that go far beyond bad skin and a slow metabolism. Among the more serious effects (such as increased breast
Many newbie runners give up on running because within a mile (or less), their legs are on fire and they’re breathing so hard they feel like they’re a huff and a puff away from passing out. Don’t expect to be able to run five miles right from the get-go — it takes time to build

You know the story: you’re nervous before a big date or you want to unwind after a stressful day and have a drink to calm yourself. It helps, too. Drinking a glass of wine can be a great way to subdue anxiety but not a great plan for the long term. Relying too much on
We’ve all made New Year’s resolutions we couldn’t keep. Whether we failed to drop a dress size, land a big promotion at work, or hit the gym seven days a week, there’s a good reason most people break their resolutions. Sometimes the goals we set for ourselves are just a tad (or a ton!) too
It can be hard to know how to treat cold symptoms when medicines and natural remedies so often work better for some people than others, and conventional wisdom tells you to just ride it out. But if you didn’t think of this before, you can actually take aspirin to soothe a sore throat, along with
I feel like my best self in Spin class, but putting me on a real bike is a different story entirely. It’s not that I can’t ride a bike: it’s just that when I do, I can’t stop thinking about how dangerous it is. Whenever my friends tell me they bike to work or to
Getting in shape is one of the most common new year’s resolutions year after year, and for good reason. Whether you want to feel more confident in your skin, lose weight for health reasons, have more energy, or just feel stronger, getting in shape can be one of the best ways to achieve all kinds
Last week I kick-started a healthy Fall when Tone It Up hosted me at their retreat in Dana Point, CA; I followed up a nutrition class with one (maybe two) of these insanely delicious pumpkin pie bars. I saw them sitting on a table across the grass from me and made a B-line for pie.
Did you used to waste hours playing Tetris as a kid? The game has been popular on computers, Game Boys, and other game consoles for decades, and viewed as nothing more than a way to pass the time. But researchers have discovered that Tetris is actually a great way to ease feelings of anxiety. A
From politics to Hollywood, the importance of diversity and inclusion have become one of the most important topics being discussed over the last few years. While more companies and brands strive for diversity and inclusiveness, it’s important that we continue pressing the issues at hand until people can turn on the TV, open a magazine,
After hearing so much about Beachbody’s 80 Day Obsession and seeing the amazing transformations, I felt compelled to try the workouts. With my experience doing CrossFit three to four times a week for the past two years, I needed to see how these workouts compared. Would they be as intense and effective at building strength?
Pumpkin and butternut squash get all the attention during Fall and Winter (and rightfully so because they are both delicious), but my favorite comfort food during the cold months is a plate of roasted Brussels sprouts. It’s the perfect complementary side dish to a roasted chicken, vegan curry, or even Thanksgiving turkey. But as much
Because #vegansdoitbetter. With dishes like spicy sweet potato salad, protein-packed pumpkin pie bars, creamy nutmeg broccoli soup, and wild rice, who needs turkey and carb-heavy mashed potatoes loaded with butter and cream?

Even if you’ve been staying on track with your healthy eating goals all year, it’s a slippery slope after Halloween: noshing on leftover Halloween candy, Thanksgiving dinner followed by pumpkin pie, not to mention all the holiday parties and cookie swaps that fill December. With chunky sweaters, leggings, and thick layers filling your wardrobe in
There are many reasons behind sudden weight gain, and Rebecca Jane Stokes from YourTango is here to explain them. It’s not just in your head. For many men and women, dealing with weight gain is a normal occurrence. Human beings aren’t made of stone — we’re made of water, muscle, tissue, fat, bone, and more.
You can end up with sore muscles for any number of reasons: because you worked out too hard, neglected to warm up or cool down, or just tried something your body has never done before. While you may want to lie in bed and do absolutely nothing when you’re that sore, there are ways to
Audrey Tait from YourTango shares advice on how to be confident in your own body. You can, too! No matter how hard you try to “love your flaws,” some days, you just don’t. And it makes sense — being truly happy with your body image is harder than it sounds. In fact, even the most
Vegans, you may want to sit down and take a deep breath before reading the life-changing news we’re about to share with you.
