Every time I get in the car and turn on the radio…

I’m hearing something about the top hits of 2016.  And many of them were mentioned in my posts, like Cake by the Ocean, Pillow Talk, Can’t Stop the Feeling, and Closer.  Oh, and pretty much everything by Justin Bieber.  He had a good year!

Can you really eat fat and get thin?

I think so.

And so does Mark Hyman, who wrote Eat Fat, Get Thin and The Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook, which was just released a few weeks ago.

Mark Hyman, MD is the director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine, and founder and director of the Ultra Wellness Center.  He was also a speaker at IIN, where I studied nutrition, and I have been a fan of his ever since.

Dr. Hyman has helped thousands of patients lose weight quickly and sustainably by adding more high quality fat to their diets, and cutting out processed, refined carbs.  He emphasizes real, whole foods, like avocados, grass fed beef, coconut oil and a wide variety of fruits and veggies.

So, should you read The Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook?

Easiest chili ever!

I will not be winning any chili cook-offs with this recipe.  There are no weird ingredients like alligator tail or cocoa powder.  And I didn’t grow my own chili peppers and grind them by hand.

But it’s so easy and good, and can be made with stuff you usually have on hand.  My kind of recipe.

In fact, I had a totally different post planned for today.  Until I made this chili and decided I had to share it with my happy, healthy and hot friends.

Hot deals, hotter music…

Let’s start with the music.  Because it doesn’t get much hotter than Zayn and Taylor Swift collaborating on  “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” for the 50 Shades Darker soundtrack.  Crazy hot.  Love when he hits those high notes.

And now for the hot deals!
