Wellness

Weight loss is undoubtedly the most common New Year's Resolution. We try year-after-year to lose that 15 lbs we gained over the holidays but the scale refuses to budge and we deem weight loss an unsolved mystery.


If you're a part of those who find weight loss to be a complete conundrum, you can begin your journey by eliminating unhealthy foods that we love to indulge in, out of your diet. "While I'm not one for wanting people to eliminate food groups/food choices from your diet forever, it is certainly important for you to remove foods from your diet that will not fuel your body properly to lose weight," says food nutrition specialist and certified trainer Tasha Turnbull.

All of the side effects I mentioned about eating dairy are not all directed at weight loss. Nevertheless, dairy can play a huge role in how your waistline and skin appear, in addition to the numbers on the scale.

Uranus, the planet that many astrologers refer to as "The Great Awakener", recently settled into pleasure-seeking Taurus where it will remain until 2026. Over the next several years, this erratic planet will push us out of our comfort zone in nothing less than its disruptive fashion. As much as we'd prefer for change to be smooth and easy, Uranus has other ideas in mind that often result in shake-ups within our foundation that ultimately give way for something new to be defined.
