“They say that moms with children with food allergies do more research than the CIA, and I think that’s true,” quips Leah Segedie at the opening of a three-minute video she’s using to get the attention of moms and and baby formula giant Similac. She wants the company to get rid of the GMOs they put in their line of formulas, something Similac (Abbott Laboratories) decided not to do at their recent annual shareholder meeting.
To join Leah’s fight and let Similac and its competitors know you won’t stand for this, sign this petition at Change.org. Also, join us on the #SimilacNoGMO Twitter party Wednesday, May 22nd from 8-9:30pm EST, where you’ll join host Leah @BookieBoo and @DietsInReview as a panelist. (more…)
When it comes to fitness and wellness, there’s not much Denise Austin hasn’t done in her more than 30-year career. Last night, we were thrilled to be part of a rare first – a Twitter chat. While one of the country’s most renowned and beloved fitness experts is active on the social media channel, she’d yet to get up close and personal with her followers like she did in a chat hosted by DietsInReview.
We were thrilled to lead that conversation and introduce thousands of people to Denise and her new book, Side Effect: Skinny. “My goal is to redefine what skinny means — strong, fit, healthy, and energetic! A trimmer, healthier you!,” tweeted Denise about the direction of her book.
The idea behind Side Effect: Skinny is to help you create habits that can lead to lasting health, fitness, and even weight loss, and during the chat we discussed the key components of that plan. Calorie confusion, increasing metabolism, eating “skinny foods,” and overnight fasting were all answered by Denise during the one-hour chat.
She’s one of the most renowned fitness experts in the country, and her name is synonymous with working out. You’ll have a chance to meet Denise Austin live on Twitter through an exclusive party with DietsInReview.com!
You’ll have a chance to hear directly from Denise about her newest book, Side Effect: Skinny. Denise’s fitness philosophy, and even ask her your fat burning questions!

I love a smoothie! Honestly there is nothing wrong with this food. It’s completely customizable, satisfying, and delicious. And let’s talk about how nutritionally dense they are. When I’m feeling run down, sluggish, or just need to reboot after an indulgent weekend, I attack my blender.
A three-city road trip with my family last weekend left me in such a state, so it’s been smoothie mornings all week. I more or less make the same version every time depending on what I have. But yesterday’s smoothie was so awesome, tasted so fresh, and four hours later had me yet to clamor for a snack, it just had to be shared on Twitter!
My morning is being fueled by smoothie awesomeness – Raspberry @chobani, avocado, banana, spinach, blueberry, strawberry, honeycrisp apple.

That avocado and spinach that you’re curling your lips at? Can’t even taste them. But your body knows they are there and that’s what matters. If I don’t make smoothies with avocados, I’m hungry an hour or two later. The healthy fats keep me satisfied well past a normal snack time.
I’m not the only one sharing smoothie recipes on Twitter. Frankly, I’m not the only one sharing what I eat on any social network. It’s a thing. I’m part of it. Sort of proud, but definitely not ashamed. So I looked around and gathered the best tweeted smoothie recipes from the past week and found enough ideas to keep us all crushing ice and fruit for a few days.
Having a mini-breakdown because my “dinner” tonight is a kale-cucumber-celery-cilantro-jalapeño smoothie. Day 3 of The Cleanse.
