Woman’s Day has 7 common weight-management myths debunked, including eating after certain hours and thinking carbs (or fat) is bad.

If you’ve been looking for a great gluten free grain option, why not try inCYST on the Best’s food of the week – buckwheat?  Btw, Monika of inCYST is here next week as part of our special focus week on PCOS.   We’re excited as we think the week will really help the women who are coming to take part.  Monika is a real expert on the subject.

For some time, researchers have been finding that people who exercise don’t necessarily lose weight.  Read more from the New York Times Phys Ed blog about why exercise doesn’t always lead to weight loss.

Obsession with dieting rules can be overwhelming, as can an obsession with healthy eating, or orthorexia. Darya from Summer Tomato wrote about this, bacon, and the power of food culture this week.  After reflecting on the topic she wants to know, Is it such a stretch to say that we should be able to eat healthy and still enjoy our food?

Marsha is back into yoga… again.  She informed us of this four years ago this week, and just last week renewed her commitment to it.  She doesn’t do it for weight loss but this post from the archives gives some insight into why yoga can help us eat better and feel better.

    Some interesting reading here. I think it’s essential for a person to enjoy their food, and there’s no reason that healthy food shouldn’t taste good. There’s a whole world between greasy fast food and dry fat-free salad, and it’s worth it to find a balance that meets your goals.

    I got re-introduced to Yoga while at Green Mountain. Thank You Mallary for piquing my interest. My husband brought me a flier from a new Yoga studio near us; oh good, something we can do together.

  6. Love buckwheat groats and flour. And despite the name, it is not wheat and is gluten free. We make buckwheat buttermilk pancakes, with buckwheat as the only flour.

    Yoga, helps keep me at least sort of flexible. I started after some abdominal surgery and GI compliants. All that twisting has really helped. And it keeps me calmer too. It is good for the body and the mind.
