THE REVERSE YO-YO: HOW TO RESET YOUR SET POINT

"I am coming off of a month of travel where I essentially took the entire month off from any training.  Prior to this trip, I had not been training much either.  I would skip entire weeks of exercise and then do a few workouts the next week.  I probably averaged one workout a week over the last three months.

NUTRITION NON-NEGOTIABLES: HOW TO HAVE YOUR CAKE AND BE HEALTHY, TOO

"Our approach is lenient, but it still has your best interest at heart. The goal is to make you feel and look better, not to make you crazy by putting restrictions on certain foods that can be totally harmless.

"YOU'RE HUGE AND SCARY?": THOUGHTS ON WOMEN WITH MUSCLE

"I’ve been called everything from enormous to emaciated (and I looked the exact same, ha!). And I’m 99% sure I could be called small, big, skinny, overweight, scary, weak, buff, butch, skeletal, enormous, ANYTHING, and I’d actually be fine with it." -Jill Coleman

THE JOY OF MISSING OUT

"Our devices hold out the false promise that there is something more important, more urgent, more interesting than our present-moment experience. Unfortunately, while that statement makes rational sense, it is not going to hold much water with a nine-year-old clutching an iPad, or a tween on snapchat." -Christopher Willard
