What Is Flexible Dieting And Does It Work?

Every few years a brand new craze hits the market and people flock towards it in hopes of losing their belly and revealing a sexy six-pack. A few years ago, the paleo diet was the new craze and now it’s split between the ketogenic diet and flexible eating. Over here at Servedhealthy, our goal is to produce content that promotes health. I don’t advocate crash diets even though I’ve written about them. I’m not the kind of person who will shoot down a diet for no reason, especially if it provides great results for people. What I do have a problem with is diets that are dangerous, specifically starvation diets. However, it’s not every day that I encounter a diet where starvation isn’t even a factor anymore, on the contrary, there are little to no restrictions on flexible dieting and it piqued my interest! Without further ado, let’s dig into…

How To Lose Your Belly In 60 Days

I have a confession to make – I’ve put on weight. Not just a pound or two! I’m actually 2 pants sizes larger now and it sucks because those few inches make it impossible for me to wear most of my outfits. Like most people, I tend to store fat around my lower stomach very quickly. Curse these damn love handles! In clothes, I don’t look overweight at all. By my standards, however, I’m out of shape and fat. There’s a chunky roll around my waist that has to go! Thankfully, I have ample experience with weight loss given that I shed over 40 pounds of weight a few years ago. It was far from easy and I made a ton of mistakes at first. But, I zoned in on the main techniques that work amazingly and very quickly. I’m planning on slimming down in 60 days and dropping about…

How To Stick With Your New Year Resolutions And Avoid Failure

At the beginning of every year, new year resolutioners set out to make big and drastic changes. I dare you to visit your nearest gym in January and try to get onto any of the cardio machines that are available throughout the year, you’ll wait in a line! Everyone wants to lose weight, eat healthier, start writing a book and make more money. Those seem to be the top resolutions for most people and I have to admit, they’re awesome. I can relate to most people because for a few years now, I make a resolution at the beginning of January to finally ‘get a six pack’. The first 2 weeks start off strong but the motivation that carried me for those weeks start to fade. Why Do Most New Year Resolutions Fail? Back then, I lacked a very important characteristic needed for success beyond motivation – I needed discipline!…

How To Lose 10 Pounds In A Week Without Killing Yourself

What if I told you that it was indeed possible to lose 10 pounds in a week, would you believe me?  It can be done. And no, there’s absolutely no magic pill that’s going to shed pounds for you. What I’m about to propose is an extreme way to lose up to 10 pounds in a week. Ordinarily, I would advise people to approacwh weight loss as a 6-month long journey because, in reality, 1 – 2 pounds of weight loss per week is usually the correct amount. But, perhaps you have an important event coming up within a week and you were unable to stick to your weight loss plans but still, you need to drop those unwanted pounds asap. In which case, this protocol will most likely work but I want you to be warned that it is extreme and I don’t believe it’s something people can maintain…

9 Foods That Cause And Worsen Leaky Gut

Over the course of 3 years, I have studied and learned as much as I possibly could about leaky gut because of how it affected my life. Ever since being diagnosed with multiple chronic illnesses (autoimmune diseases like psoriatic arthritis), I’ve made myself more conscious and aware of how my gut affects the rest of my body. One of the leading causes of leaky gut (which is a condition known as intestinal permeability wherein the lining of the stomach develops small holes allowing food particles and more to seep into your bloodstream) is a bad diet. It shocks me how uninformed people are about food. We are led to believe that our bodies are capable of consuming and digesting any kind of foods available but that is far from the truth. Genetic modification has vastly altered the structure of foods we consumed for centuries. Pesticides and chemicals that are aimed…

Junk food is addictive. At every turn, we are bombarded with options of fried foods, processed meats, sugar-laden snacks and beverages packed with caffeine. They taste great but they are destructive to our health and well being. Ever since starting this blog, I’ve been experimenting with different food choices and recording how my body reacts to them.

The Simplest Guide To Good Carbs Vs Bad Carbs

Talking about carbohydrates these days is as good as placing a giant red X on my back because this topic can get really hot and hectic. But, I’m going to take my shot at it with the hopes of setting you up with something worth thinking about. Carbs get a bad rap in the fitness and diet world. I won’t say that I completely agree with the ideas and arguments presented by the groups of people who believe carbs are completely bad for you but I do see some concerning things about this food group. Let’s be honest with ourselves for a moment, the carbs we consume from traditional stores and enterprises are not what they used to be. Genetic modification, new farming methods, pesticides and chemicals, added fillers and preservatives have completely changed the makeup and status of modern day grains which are used to as the main ingredients…

More and more people are kicking the bucking when they ought to only be entering the great days of their lives. Why?
