Orthorexia

Check out my blog post from work as executive science and health editor at Blouin News on Orthorexia:

Some experts use this term to describe those obsessed with eating in a healthy manner such as avoiding fat, carbohydrates, salt and gluten too much or only eating raw or organic food, to the point it causes stress and an inadequate intake of nutrients and/or calories.

Oblique Exercise


Lie down on your right side. Cross your ankles. Hold your head up with your left hand. With your left hand, grab a free weight that will give you a workout and with which you can do four sets of 10 repetitions. Keep your left  arm straight while not locking your elbow. Keep the free weight two inches over your hips. Reach to your feet for at least 10 pulses. Rest a few seconds and repeat for three more repetitions. This works your left internal and external  oblique muscles. Repeat while lying down on your left side. This works your right internal and external oblique muscles.
