Fit Tip Tuesday: The Calorie Game.

“Is this healthy?” It was a text that buzzed in on my phone over the weekend. It’s not the first time I’ve been asked this over the years, and it’s also not the first time I’ve seen what followed just this year alone. Consuming 1200 calories a day, while exercising, to lose weight. ONLY 1200 […]
