5 Lame & Limiting Reasons That Keep You from Losing Weight (And how to work the shift out of it)

 A weight loss journey can be a difficult one, especially when you have YOU to deal with. Throughout life, a lot of us have been conditioned to develop a pretty poor relationship with food; along with many limiting beliefs about the power we have to change things. And just like any relationship that is like a turbulent rollercoaster, it typically ends up in a downward spiral. Here are some common reasons that could be worth looking at before you decide to get off your ride.

1. You have a fat phobia

Fats have been demonized for far too long and although they are making a break from the past, many people are still stuck on the notion that fats are evil. Fat free and fake alternative products are still being mass marketed and consumers just like you rack up your shelves and fridges with overly processed items that claim to be better for you; when in fact, these products are usually packed with added sugars and fillers that can end up only making you hungrier or craving more of the same foods.

Get Fit or Get Fined? Is this Even Legal? B.E.S.T. Plan Starts 10/26!


What would your community be like if it had ‘fitness patrols’ roaming your neighborhood streets? McDonald’s would probably be an underground junk food dealer (4 chicken nuggets in a dime bag, please) and Starbucks would most likely sell wheat grass macchiatos and have stair masters in their lounges instead of free wi-fi.

Well Human@Ease actually did the unthinkable and the Fitness Protection Police patrolled the Greenpoint streets to promote a healthier lifestyle to the community! Continue reading

Good Morning Gloryville – Obviously Brooklyn has Breakfast Raves!

Dancing or yoga?

For most Greenpointers, early mornings will find us hitting the snooze button a few too many times. Others are out dancing. A recent trend has sprung up in North Brooklyn (and across New York City) – people hitting the dance floors before their morning cup of coffee.

A group named Morning Gloryville, whose motto is “rave your way into the day” really knows how to wake up by dancing hard to awesome music with great people in a fun setting. Continue reading

It’s Time To Get Healthy: Food For Life Cooking Class Begins Thursday (DEAL!)


Photo Earth & Wellness Cafe

Did you know that reviews by the American Institute for Cancer Research show that as much as 40% of cancer risk may be related to diet?

The contemporary Brooklynite’s diet (I’m looking at you!) which consists of going out and enjoying overly indulgent bacon infused everything (even cocktails) can leave us all feeling sluggish, unwell and not ourselves. Sound familiar? Not to mention it may put us at risk for disease down the line.

For the price it costs to go out to a fancy (heavy) and expensive dinner once, why not take a course (which includes 4 informative & hands-on classes) and learn to cook for your health!

Earth and Wellness Café (397 Graham Ave) is offering a Food for Life Cooking Course, which includes 4 classes on the following Thursdays (3/20, 3/27, 4/3, 4/10)

 from 7–9pm and costs on $135.

Plus they are offering a DEAL! 10% OFF discount to Greenpointers readers! 
Enter “Gpointer2014″ when you sign-up. Continue reading
