Three Things


1. A new study says it’s gotten harder to lose weight. An adult in 2006 had a higher BMI than that of an adult in 1988 with the same diet and activity level. Weight loss is really more complex than just energy in versus energy out. Some factors affecting weight loss noted in the study include amount of sleep, stress , exposure to certain chemicals, prescription drug use, and use of artificial sweeteners. Weight loss is still possible with all these factors aside. Don’t forget a friendly dietitian is always available to help! {Washington Post}

2. Caffeinated peanut butter? What? Yes. One tablespoon of this peanut butter has the same amount of caffeine as one cup of coffee. The caffeine comes from green coffee extract that is added to the peanut butter. I don’t know about you, but I’ll stick with my regular, natural peanut butter and a plain old cup of coffee! {Today}

3. Halloween is right around the corner and candy is now on every shelf. Thanks to Buzzfeed the ‘Try and Guess What Halloween Candies These Were Before We Smashed Them’ quiz was created. I scored 9 out of 13. Not bad. Don’t forget that it’s okay to indulge a bit now and then. Just don’t make it a habit! {Buzzfeed}
