Best Dark Chocolate Brands

For those of you who are  choco-holics like me, sticking to a weight-loss eating regimen can be hard when a sweet craving strikes (especially this time of year).  I’ve had a lot of recent success with the keto diet, but once in a while I need a little nibble of chocolate to get me through the afternoon slump at work.  One of my favorite sites, Eat This, Not That!, published this article after reviewing some brand name dark chocolate bars.  Check it out here to learn what you should nosh on if you’re in need of a fix.

Lunch Break Changes to Shed Pounds

Tell your boss you need a break–a real one, and step away from your desk!  Those of us who spend 8+ hours behind a computer 5 days a week are doing a lot of damage to our well being.  Not only is it depressing to peck away at a keyboard all day, but it negatively impacts your weight, posture, and other aspects of your physical and mental health.  I’ve been a big fan of my daily walks for the past 2 years, usually clocking 2 miles with a co-worker throughout most of the year (we’ve even gone when it’s freezing out!).  It gives us a change to unplug from work, feel the sun on our faces, chat, and break up the day.  We’d come back into the office rejuvenated and ready to preform our best–so it’s a win for our clients and our company too!  If walking isn’t you thing, it’s still important to get out from behind the desk and move a bit.
