    After reading this article and watching this video, I now have a better sense of how eating excessive carbs can lead to body fat. When glucose is in the bloodstream, our pancreas secretes insulin so...

    Are Gluten-Free Products Healthier?

    I bought some gluten-free beer the other day, just to give it a try, and I noticed that it had 160 calories and 14 grams of carbs. I believe that's comparable to many good micro-brews, which got me...
