Many of us have put on some pounds during the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, according to a Nutrisystem survey with over 2,000 people conducted by OnePoll, around 91% of respondents have gained weight since March 2020. Even reality star Dorinda Medley can relate.
Best known for her role on “The Real Housewives of New York,” Dorinda is just like 71% of those surveyed who are trying to keep a weight loss goal in 2021. She’s keeping it real and spilling the tea on how she is getting back on track.

Quinoa is often called a “superfood,” but you can think of it as a hard-working everyday staple for your healthy recipes.
Quinoa (say it “keen-wah”) is considered a whole grain, although it’s technically a seed. Like other SmartCarbs, it’s high in fiber and low in calories. According to Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, a half-cup serving also fuels you up with four grams of protein—in fact, it’s one of the few plant foods that’s a “complete” protein, including all nine essential amino acids.1
Quinoa has a chewy texture and a lightly nutty flavor that blends well with many other ingredients. It comes in different colors, including red, white, yellow and even black.
Quinoa is the perfect swap for rice in your recipes...

Long gone are the days when the only men’s hair product guys used was gel from the grocery store.
Today’s beauty market is full of great items designed for different purposes so that any guy can style his hair to look the best.
It can get a little overwhelming though to look at seemingly endless choices of pomades, sprays and creams and know what to pick!
Here’s a helpful men’s hair product guide with everything you need to know.
The four things to look for when assessing men’s hair products are shine, mate, hold and malleability.
Shine means how much the product reflects light and makes your hair look wet and, well, shiny. Matte is the opposite – this type of product absorbs light, and it seems like you’re not wearing anything.
The product’s hold determines how lon...

Your new secret for a big weight loss weapon: Reorganizing your kitchen. You may think that keeping snacks out of sight is a “duh” tip, but there have actually been well-done research studies proving that it really works.
