The Fast Food and Chain Restaurant Epidemic

Posted by on Apr 12, 2012 in Diet It UP, Health It UP

Posted by on Apr 11, 2012 in Fitness Product Reviews, Gear It UP

Posted by on Apr 11, 2012 in Supp It UP, Supplement Reviews

It’s no secret that the energy drink industry is a behemoth…and I’m talking about a behemoth worth nearly $42 BILLION in global annual revenue. A ton of companies are entering the extremely lucrative “energy” space and developing innovative new ways to deliver powerful jolts of energy to sleep deprived, party-hardy, excitement-seeking consumers. Recently I’ve seen these little energy strips—highly reminiscent of Listerine Pocket Pack Breath Strips—called “Sheets” pop up all over the internet, in NYC, and in Vitamin Shoppe’s/GNC’s everywhere....

Yum…Taco Bell Meat Contains Only 35% Beef, 57% Fat

Posted by on Apr 10, 2012 in Diet It UP, Eating Out, News

Honestly, it was pretty obvious that Taco Bell wasn’t serving high quality beef in it’s products. Lets be serious…it’s Taco Bell. What’s actually surprising though is that Taco Bell’s “seasoned beef” is not only fatty as hell, but it’s barely beef at all.

It’s amazing how much sugar, artificial ingredients, and other unhealthy ingredients they can pack into a small, seemingly healthy cough drop…
