It's hard out there for a busy mom. If you've been wanting to shed a few unwanted pounds, but you simply don't have any extra time in your day to hit the gym, complete a workout DVD or attend a weight loss meeting, trying to figure out where to start can seem an impossible task. However, it's actually possible to drop a few pounds here and there without making any major changes.
Yes she can! Rosie Rivera's weight loss is pretty remarkable and definitely makes me question skipping the gym so much. The little sister of Diva de la Banda Jenni Rivera dropped more than 20 pounds with fitness trainer Alejandro Chaban's diet, the same fitness coach that Chiquis Rivera used to drop nearly 30 pounds last year. Rosie managed to drop the weight in just four months! She really looks incredible. I love that she looks fit and tone, but still has her curves. The best part is that she's spilling her fitness secrets!
Celebs have been swearing by the beautifying and slimming properties of smoothies and juices for a while now, but I'll admit that I've long thought them to be more for waifish, Gwyneth Paltrow-types. Well, it turns out I was wrong.

Now, that's what I'm talking about!
With all of the fattening holiday fixings coming up, bookmarking a good weight loss and detox diet is essential for keeping our scale in check.

According to the Journal of Preventive Medicine, oatmeal can also help lower cholesterol and even lower the risk of certain types of cancers. It's one of the healthiest foods you can serve in a bowl, but the key is to make sure you're doing the oatmeal diet right.
In 2008, retired NYPD officer Patti Murillo-Casa was diagnosed with stage IIB cervical cancer. For many women, this would have been a wakeup call to get healthy and start living life to the fullest. Not so for Patti. Instead, she admits she used her cancer diagnosis and recovery as an excuse to continue her lifelong habit of eating any and everything she wanted; she deserved it, she thought. "In my mind it didn't matter what I ate or how much I ate; I felt entitled since I had fought for my own life," she writes on the Huffington Post. But little did Patti know that her "reward" for surviving cancer would become the very thing that would put her life in jeopardy!
Plantains are a food staple that Latinos are well known for and pretty much everyone loves them because they are delicious! The only setback with plátanos are that they tend to be unhealthy because of the ways we prepare them. We deep fry them like it's nobody's business and we all know that's not good for us.

The issue with it is that most people purchase it and then don't know how to use them.
That's when I recommend trying a delicious chia fresca to quench your thirst and nourish your body.Continue Reading >
