Losing weight isn't about having a fast metabolism

Yes, I’m writing this blog because I am trying to lose some weight. It's not easy, as you have probably heard many people complain. And it’s likely that you have also heard people place the blame for this difficulty on a slow metabolism. I’m not exactly sure what that might mean, but, hey, the excuse made sense. That is, until I asked the researchers at Metabolon. 

Bottom line: I lost my excuse. 

Super Fruit

Meet the super fruit!

You may find this hard to believe, but strawberries were first grown and harvested in ancient Rome. Today, there are about 600 varieties of strawberries, customized for growing in various parts of the world. Strawberries are some of the most popular fruits, not just because they are delicious, but also because they are among the top fruits in terms of simply being good for you.
