The Healthy Snack Formula

Most people (including myself) enjoy snacking. In fact, research has suggested that 24% of all food consumed amongst Canadians come from snack meals. In addition, recent research based out of the University of Guelph found that one third of young children's total daily energy intake came from snacks. When we hear the word snack we often think of chips, cookies, or other high energy 'snacky' foods. In fact, when asking Canadians their primary reason for snacking, the majority of people responded with enjoyment, indulgence, and convenience. The most common snacks being reported as, fruit, yogurt, potato chips, chocolate, cookies, snack bars, and nuts. When asked about the most common times fo

Body Composition and Why Weight isn't the Most Important Measure

Body composition is a complicated subject, so complicated that I spent 3 years studying about it in graduate school. But the most important thing to know is that the number on the scale doesn't tell us everything!

The most important thing to recognize is there are many different parts of our bodies that make up our body composition – with the main two being body fat and lean mass (or muscle).
