Dieting can be a tricky subject.  Some people aren’t sure how to do it quite right which can result in actually gaining weight or hurting your body.  There are certain myths that revolve around the topic of dieting and I wanted to clear up a few of them!  This way, you can get the most out of your dieting! 🙂

  • You should skip meals to lose weight faster.  DO NOT do this!  Skipping meals and eating less is not the way to diet.  There are certain diet plans that will sometimes have you eating more rather than less!
  • It’s not good to eat after 8 or 9 PM.  WRONG!  Whether it’s 3 pm or 3 am, your body will still metabolizing the calories you eat regardless.  Instead of not eating after 8, try to cut out that unhealthy midnight snack!
  • You have to go on a diet to lose weight.  This isn’t always true!  Simply eating healthy can still do the job just as well.  That being said, if you want to diet, find one that works for you!
  • You don’t have to exercise as long as you’re on a diet.  WRONG!  As I mentioned before, these two go hand-in-hand.  Of course, you can lose some weight if you’re solely dieting, but the best results happen when you’re both exercising and eating healthy!
  • As long as the label says low-fat, then you’re good to go.  WRONG!  Just because it’s low-fat doesn’t mean there aren’t other things you should be worrying about.  Labels can trick you so be careful!

Did you think these were true, as well?  I know I did before I actually looked into them!

Good luck! – Chels

If you are in college then you know that a coffee pot does way more than just make coffee. That thing has a whole bunch of unexpected uses. When there is no oven around, the coffee maker is the next best alternative. If you are ever in a pinch and all you have is a coffee maker, then here are a few unexpected things you can make with it!

  1. Hot dogs: You can boil hot dogs in your coffee maker! Just add six to 8 cups of water to the coffee pot and cook two hot dogs for a half an hour.enhanced-buzz-6127-1370282000-1
  2. Keurig creations: If you have a Keurig coffee maker then you are in luck! A few easy meals you can whip up are Ramen noodles and oatmeal.
  3. Hard boiled egg: I love hard boiled eggs in my salads and just as an afternoon snack, so it is great to know I can whip up a few in my good ‘ole coffee maker! 😉
  4. Grilled cheese: Use the burner just like a stove! You can make things like grilled cheese, scrambled eggs, all sorts of yummy stuff!
