For travelers who don’t want to spend hours researching restaurants with tasty and nutritious fare, the Templeton List (TempletonList.com) can help! Created by health advocate and author James Templeton, the list rates eateries based on use of locally sourced ingredients, avoidance of unhealthy oils and chemicals and safety of preparation methods. Whether you have a gluten allergy, sensitive stomach or just want to eat smart, the list makes dining on vacation a cinch.
Happy news: Getting out and about for a stroll in this beautiful weather can whittle your middle. The trick that speeds results? Enjoying a walk before breakfast instead of after. Investigators reporting in the British Journal of Nutrition found that this simple timing shift supercharges your body’s ability to burn belly fat. That’s because when you exercise before a meal on an empty stomach, your body burns off stored fats for fuel (which powers off pounds) instead of tapping into energy stored in muscle cells. Bye-bye, belly fat!
