New Years Resolutions

Lisa Eberly

Hey team! 

Raise your hand if you made a new years resolution! 

I've done resolutions in the past, and I've skipped them in the past. I’ve stuck to some and not to others. 

I definitely figured out one things for sure: if I’m trying to fulfill a resolution totally solo it ain’t happening. 

This year, P and I are cutting out red meat (due to all the research that came out this fall!). It’ll be super easy and manageable for us, since we really don’t eat red meat anyway. That is, until summer BBQs and family holidays…

We have other resolutions as well. He plans to bake fresh bread regularly (yes please), I plan to carve out more ‘me’ time (aka a few minutes at least every day just for myself, no work or chores), and a few other small things. 

The benefit of tackling resolutions as a team is that we can keep each other accountable. If I see he hasn’t made bread in a few days, I can hint to wanting bread; if he sees I’m working till all hours of the night, he can send me out for a solo walk with my book. 

This is actually one thing I love about my job. I get to help people be more accountable to reach their goals. Pretty dope. I get to help people achieve their resolutions. Best job ever, right? 

I really freaking love what I do, which makes my job the absolute best. Because of this, I created a whole special package for New Years.

So many people have major resolutions — sleep better, have more energy, complete a triathlon, lose weight, gain muscle, etc — I get to be the person who holds them accountable and makes them more successful. 

I’m basically the fairy godmother of new years resolutions. 

On that note, if you have any sort of health resolution, I have only a couple spots left for my new years resolution package! I guarantee we make your big goals more accessible and reach them together. Act fast, we've only got 2 spots left! :) 

The Myths of Honey

Lisa Eberly

Many people think honey is a magical elixir filled with endless health benefits. Many other people think honey is just sugar. Which team are you on? Which team is science on? 

Let's get into a few of these myths. 

Myth: Honey is antibacterial. 

Some honeys are lighter, others are darker. The darker the honey, the stronger its antibacterial and antioxidant powers. In the lab, honey has been shown to restrict the growth of food-borne pathogens like E. coli and salmonella, and to fight certain bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. BUT, it hasn't been proven to have these effects in humans. 

Myth: Honey can cure your allergies.

yth honey will make your allergies worse. 

Myth: Honey is great for diabetes. 

Myth: Honey is terrible for diabetes. 

Myth: Honey is better for you than sugar.

Myth: Honey is worse for you than sugar.

Myth: Honey can cure your wounds. 

Why did I only address one myth? Well, when I set out to myth bust all of the honey myths I could find out there is was OVERWHELMED. This is is only the tiniest snippet of a bigger list of claims about honey. What is the real story, already?!

Well, the story is just an example of a much bigger problem. Nutrition research. Nutrition, as I've said before and will say again, is science. It requires real research to make claims from. The trouble with the research is that it is very difficult to do and requires tens of years to complete. Studying how food affects people is hard because there are TONS of different factors to control for (exercise, genetics, sleep, other foods...), and we can't exactly lock people in a room and control their diet for their entire life. 

Research around honey has pointed in several directions. One study will "prove" its effects on allergies, another will "disprove" the effects. The same applies for all other topics around honey. 

The answer? We don't know yet. 

Isn't that crazy? Scientists as a whole, do not know for certain how honey affects us because we have not completed enough rigorous research around the topic. 

So should you be eating honey? 

I wouldn't trust honey to cure all your aliments, but I also wouldn't trust it to cause them. Honey, as with most other foods, I'm sure is perfectly fine in moderation. I have a teaspoon of it in my tea every few days. Moderation is key! 

Have any of you experimented with the benefits of honey? Share your honey story in the comments!
