n order to lose weight we were told to move more and eat less. So we all starved ourselves and slaved over our treadmills and bikes. Some of us lost weight, some of us got skinny fat and for others of us...it didn't do a damn bit of good.

Foods that promote hormonal balance allow our bodies to release excess weight and find a new set point. When we couple these hormonal happy meals with exercise, the weight begins to fall off.

Everything you need to know about Golfer's Elbow and Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow: this is defined as pain on the lateral or outside of the elbow.
Golfer's and Tennis Elbow are often referred to epicondylitis, however, more common clinically, these terms are used for tendonitis.
Is it a strain, tendinitis or epicondylitis? And the differences between the three.
Strain- A muscle has been overworked overtime, or a sudden traumatic incident has occurred. The muscle is injured and hurts with use of the hand or elbow. Rest makes this feel better. Prognosis is good and treatment time the shortest of the three conditions.
Tendonitis- A muscle has been over worked overtime and has degenerated and is inflamed, now the tendon attached to the muscle is degenerating. Rest typically helps and pain is dull and constant or intermittent. Prognosis is good, however, tendons have a lower blood supply then muscles and will heal m...
