Stop Saying It! 5 Mistakes Women Are Making About their Health
1. I'm going to juice cleanse to look great for my vacation.
"I hate them," says Tracy about juice cleanses, "they're ridiculous." The fitness guru says most companies selling women liquid that they claim is nutrient-rich is completely dense. "If you get a juice delivered to your house and you're letting it sit, you're just drinking sugar calorie water," says Tracy. Enzymes leave those fruits and veggies within 30 min to 4 hours once they are pureed.
Contrarily, green smoothies are good to make at home. If you drink immediately -- that contains your life. "But

What if you could eat anything you wanted, and not feel guilty about it? On International No-Diet Day, you can do just that -- and maybe even transform your relationship with food in the process.
Diets aren't just about food and weight. As anyone who has suffered an eating disorder or has been stuck in a cycle of yo-yo dieting knows, they're about mindset and guilt as well. The point of International No-Diet Day is to push back against societal attitudes about weight, body image, and food, and to focus instead on health, fitness, and mindful eating.
"The intent of mindful eating and mindfulness is to bring somebody to the present moment and allow them to reconnect to their direct experience," Megrette Fletcher, a registered dietician and the co-founder of the Center for Mindful Eating in New Hampshire, told Yahoo! Shine.
"A lot of times when people eat, they're thinking much more about theRead More »from Happy International No-Diet Day! Eating Mindfully May Be Better For You Than Dieting

More on Shine: Are You Overwhelmed with Protecting Your Family From Toxins? Why You're Not Alone.
Flame retardants—toxic chemicals soaked into couches and other types of household items, including mattresses and carpet pads, to make them fire resistant—have long been linked with cancer and developmental difficulties. And now a new study, released Monday, offers fresh evidence that those toxins may affect children while they are still in utero, effectively lowering IQs and raising rates of hyperactivity.
“It looks like we have a new study with very concerning results,” Sarah Janssen, a senior scientist with the Natural Resources Defense Council, told Yahoo! Shine. Though manufacturers no longer use the specific flame retardants tracked in the study—called polybrominated diphenyl ethers, or PBDEs—they remain in pieces

dad campMy name is Sunny and I am a tech junkie. There. I've said it. My addiction plays a part in almost every moment of my day. I am glued to my laptop writing posts like this, checking my email every couple of minutes and I have a severe Facebook habit. And when I'm not on my laptop, I'm getting updates on my iPhone. Or I'm texting by husband about dinner plans or just telling him a miss him. I actually think my husband I communicate more via emails, texts and Facebook messaging that in person. We've even been guilty of messaging each other while we're in the same room. Yeah, I think my tech addiction may be out of control. That is why I find the idea of "Camp Grounded" so intriguing.
Camp Grounded is being created by The Digital Detox, and will be taking place in Northern California near Anderson Valley in a "nostalgic 1970′s boy scouts camp." The event, which will take place in June, is a four-day "summer camp for adults."

1. Get your sweat on with strength training! If you want a bikini body, this is non-negotiable: Fit your workout in, no excuses! Commit to a full-body strength-training program at least three times a week to burn calories during the workout, boost your metabolism's calorie-burning power for 24 to 48 hours after, and develop lean muscles that look and feel better than flab. Perform exercises that use more than one muscle group such as squats, pushups, rows, and lunges in a circuit to make your workouts most efficient. Tip: Try working out in the morning to get your metabolism revved up for the rest of the day.

Fitness secrets from a female figure competitorWith the weather warming up, who doesn't want to sport a sculpted physique and look and feel great in a swimsuit? I chatted with ACE-certified personal trainer and National Physique Committee (NPC) competitor Riana Rohmann to learn the fitness tips and tricks that she follows to get in competition-ready shape.
Jessica Matthews (JM): What exercises and training techniques are a must in your workout routine?
Riana Rohmann (RR): Lunges and shoulder presses are the two exercises that have made the biggest difference in my physique. Lunges are one of the best exercises for targeting that stubborn glutes and hamstrings tie-in. It is by far my weakest area, but since adding various weighted lunges to my routine, I have seen my booty lift and my hamstrings develop. Shoulder presses and Arnold presses using dumbbells or barbells are also really effective for shoulder strength. The key is to lift hard and heavy, and no matter how many repetitions you do, try to
