Will I have enough energy to run if I’m dieting?

I’m back at running after 20 years or so of not doing anything except riding my bike. And you know what? I am faster and I run longer than ever before. I’m not talking about when I was in high school and when I was able to run endlessly. Or, let’s just say, I am […]

Are fruits good for you?

I used to eat 5 to 10 apples a day. This happened for a couple of months until I visited for the first time a dietitian. She told me the blood sugar is important. I knew is some sort of a big deal but I always went with that word that an apple per day […]
