Tens of billions of dollars are spent each year on dieting programs that claim to have found the answer, and yet so few people find success at losing weight and keeping it off. So why should you listen to us? Well, we’re 15-plus-year vegans, champion bodybuilders, and […]
There’s nothing like a new pair of running kicks. They look crisp, smell fresh, and — if you’re anything like me — instantly add a little extra pep to your stride. I’ll even go as far as to say that it’s a sure bet that my first run in a new pair of shoes will […]
