Quick and easy dinner rolls: Wellness Dr. Jen Gunter style

I get a lot of requests for my dinner roll recipe, so I decided to finally write it up! This is my version of wellness. So Paltrow better watch out, because my brand of wellness is practical, healthy, tasty, and inexpensive. Oh, and I’m not selling you anything. Why is baking wellness? I love bread, … Continue reading

Jameela Jamil calls out celebrities for promoting potentially harmful weight loss supplements that could give you the shits #teamJameela

Jameela Jamil made news this week for calling out various celebrities for peddling so-called weight loss and detox supplements and teas. She also hoped they might “shit their pants in public.” I am #teamJameela. Here is one of the celebrity endorsements that caught her attention, but sadly there are quite a few promoting Flat Tummy … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow’s 3-day anti bloat diet might make you GOOP your pants

Is Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP’s nutritional advice as bad as their medical advice? To answer this question I decided to try the GOOP 3-day anti-bloat diet reset. I really did start with the best of intentions and wanted to give Paltrow and her GOOPsters the benefit of the doubt. Maybe, just maybe they had their food … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow’s goat milk therapy for parasites is stupid and dangerous

Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest woo slinger wants you to believe that not only are you infected with parasites, but that parasites cause almost every illness known to human kind. In fact, they cause every single symptom. Gwyneth is already on board shilling her parasite voodoo in Women’s Health, but apparently she wants to cover all her crazy … Continue reading

Bran Buds are good for your vagina, just another reason to buy Kellogg’s

Before anyone panics I have not gone full Paltrow and this post is not about making a Bran Buds® douche, it’s a love letter to my favorite cereal. I’m often interviewed by women’s health magazines about “best foods for your vagina.” No one ever wants to hear about the amazing benefits of fiber because apparently … Continue reading

A new study was released on weight loss and maintenance that has been covered on many sites. Researchers from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) evaluated contestants from Season 8 of the TV show the Biggest Loser. They found that 13 of the 14 contestants studied regained some or all of their weight that was lost … Continue reading

Dear Columbia University it’s not about academic freedom it’s about ethics and liver cleanses

Dr. Oz is under fire again, this time from a group of 10 physicians who wrote a letter to Columbia medical school reporting their dismay that he remains on faculty. Columbia came back with the expected “academic freedom” response, which is apparently a license to say and do anything. I understand that innovation can come … Continue reading

Black bean Ghirardelli brownies (160 calories)

I really like to bake and I certainly didn’t stop my culinary adventures when I decided to lose weight, change my eating habits, and get in shape. I’m not one of those “sugar is a toxin” believers, for a variety of reasons that are too numerous and involved to discuss in this post. In fact … Continue reading

The only thing that a cleanse actually cleans is your wallet

From time to time I get asked about cleanses. What is typically meant by a “cleanse” is only drinking a juice concoction for several days. Some cleanses add things like cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, or other supposedly “healthy” substances. The most common reasons to “cleanse” that I hear from people who drink these things include: … Continue reading

Bacon s’mores and brownie s’mores (and all on a diet)

First of all, I’m not really on a diet. I lost 55 lbs by changing the way I live and by changing my relationship with food, but that’s too long for a title so diet will have to do. The plan on New Year’s Eve was a bonfire on the beach. Someone mentioned s’mores, so … Continue reading
