Is “Keto Crotch” a thing? The Internet’s gynecologist weighs in

Keto Crotch headlines have ricocheted around the Internet. Whether this is just a click bait sweet spot of vaginal panic + keto or something more orchestrated (the number of headlines that blossomed in such a short span was truly awe-inspiring) is hard to know. I am not a conspiracy theorist, but seriously it was nuts […]

Jameela Jamil calls out celebrities for promoting potentially harmful weight loss supplements that could give you the shits #teamJameela

Jameela Jamil made news this week for calling out various celebrities for peddling so-called weight loss and detox supplements and teas. She also hoped they might “shit their pants in public.” I am #teamJameela.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s 3-day anti bloat diet might make you GOOP your pants

Is Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP’s nutritional advice as bad as their medical advice? To answer this question I decided to try the GOOP 3-day anti-bloat diet reset.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest woo slinger wants you to believe that not only are you infected with parasites, but that parasites cause almost every illness known to human kind.

I’m often interviewed by women’s health magazines about “best foods for your vagina.” No one ever wants to hear about the amazing benefits of fiber because apparently […]

A new study was released on weight loss and maintenance that has been covered on many sites. Researchers from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) evaluated contestants from Season 8 of the TV show the Biggest Loser. They found that 13 of the 14 contestants studied regained some or all of their weight that was lost […]

Black bean Ghirardelli brownies (160 calories)

I really like to bake and I certainly didn’t stop my culinary adventures when I decided to lose weight, change my eating habits, and get in shape. I’m not one of those “sugar is a toxin” believers, for a variety of reasons that are too numerous and involved to discuss in this post. In fact […]

The only thing that a cleanse actually cleans is your wallet

From time to time I get asked about cleanses. What is typically meant by a “cleanse” is only drinking a juice concoction for several days. Some cleanses add things like cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, or other supposedly “healthy” substances. The most common reasons to “cleanse” that I hear from people who drink these things include: […]
