Mary Hartley to Present on Intuitive Eating at the Women’s Health and Fitness Expo

Next month, DietsInReview.com is going on a road trip to Upstate New York to help get the women and families of that community on the right track for health. We’ll be attending the one-day Women’s Health and Fitness Expo on May 19, 2012. More than 8,000 people will turn out to spend a day learning about nutrition, fitness, disease prevention, and to receive health screenings and even spa treatments.

Our resident dietitian, Mary Hartley, RD, will be presenting one of the keynotes, discussing the practice of intuitive eating. It’s something she employs in her own life, and after decades of working as a clinical dietitian, something she knows works for living a healthy, balanced life.

Throughout the day, Expo attendees can visit the DietsInReview.com booth to meet Mary and have a one-on-one nutrition Q&A with her, as well as determine your caloric needs for weight loss or maintenance. As well, our editor Brandi Koskie will be on hand to make sure you leave with some great DIR goodies!

We won’t be in the booth alone, though. Bernie Salazar, Biggest Loser season 5 at-home winner and our very first Biggest Loser correspondent, will be on hand to introduce everyone to his children’s fitness book, Monstercize. Health editor Liz Neporent will be available to sign books, and fitness expert Jessica Smith will be signing DVDs. (more…)

Inside the Vault with Cris Collinsworth to Include Health in Men’s Issues

The Internet is surprisingly silent on a brand new show hosted by Emmy Award-winning NFL broadcaster Cris Collinsworth, scheduled to start airing February 4, 2011. Inside the Vault will address “men’s issues” according to a post made by Collinsworth on footballpros.com. Inside the Vault will also include the talent of Alonzo Bodden, winner of Last Comic Standing’s third season, and Jill Wagner, co-host of Wipeout. Jill is also known as “The Mercury Girl” for her part in their commercials.
While “men’s issues” is slightly vague, I have it on good authority that at least some of the topics addressed will include men’s health. Bernie Salazar, The Biggest Loser’s season five at home winner, is one of the scheduled guests. With his soon to be published children’s book, Monstercize, Bernie is focusing on health and encouraging physical activity. On twitter @VaultInsider describes the show as “an engaging new series that explores what excites, inspires and drives today’s classic man.”

The Nurture Principles” – Five mantras to help people change their lives and find wellness within. You’ll also recall Bernie as the Biggest Loser season 5 at-home winner.

I never realized exactly how much of an impact my relationships had on my overall health. Have you? Often times we forget to communicate to the people in our lives that we are taking the time to nurture ourselves and truly focus on getting healthy.

With the “old Bernie,” food was king! Almost all of my family functions revolved around food. Dates with my better half always included a restaurant, outings with friends consisted of drinks and appetizers, meetings with co-workers didn’t officially begin until the desserts were present, and my dog’s chubby figure was a direct result of me sharing my in between meal snacks with my “best friend.” (more…)
