Part of that is because our&nbsp;minds have been wired to think of sweets, like birthday cakes and special-occasion cookies, as celebratory rewards and deserved indulgences.&nbsp;</p> <p>Sugar is desirable even when you get bombarded with statistics telling you to think otherwise. Two of the world's major health problems, obesity and diabetes, are directly tied to sugar intake and in the US alone, 29 million Americans have diabetes. Those known facts quickly get forgotten at the sight of a sweet treat. The good news is that sugar may never magically become good for you, but you can still enjoy the sweets you love. It's time to get acquainted with<a href="/Health+Diet+Fitness/articles/dc7P5Oz_LJv/Say+Goodbye+Refined+Sugar+Try+Flavorful+Natural" target="_blank"> sweetener alternatives </a>that come straight from nature.</p> <div class="widget left pull-quote-big-icon w30" data-widget-guid="a7rbj-rXuON" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/pull_quote_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="pull_quote_widget"> <p class="text primary">Two of the world's major health problems, obesity and diabetes, are directly tied to sugar intake."</p> </div> <p>Sugar can be sneaky. Even if you actively avoid consuming it,&nbsp;it hides in fruit juices, smoothies, energy bars and other everyday goods.&nbsp;Paddy Spence, the CEO of <a href="http://www.zevia.com/" target="_blank">Zevia</a>&mdash;a soda alternative made with fruit and natural sweeteners&mdash;shared this when he told us his own story of quitting sugar 14&nbsp;years ago. "At the time, I thought I was eating healthy, consuming meat in moderation, and buying almost exclusively natural and organic products," he says. "However, I realized I was taking in more than 250 grams of sugar per day, or 1,000 calories, from supposed healthy products." As expected, giving up&nbsp;cold turkey is not an&nbsp;easy feat. "My body went into shock from the radical dietary change, but with time, I've learned to manage sugar cravings and adapt my body, which has made this lifestyle change very rewarding."</p> <p>There are two plant-based sweeteners that Spence turned to&nbsp;when it came to finding alternatives: stevia and monk fruit. Stevia is extracted from leaves of the stevia plant, has zero calories and no effect on blood glucose levels. Monk fruit is grown on vines, crushed, then infused with hot water to release natural sweetness. It also contains zero calories and no effect on blood glucose levels. As for honey, agave and similar&nbsp;"better for you" sweeteners you might've heard of, Spence explains that "in the end, they're all sugar. Natural sweeteners such as Stevia provide the fulfillment you need without experiencing the consequences."&nbsp;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="nySmlBjcHAn" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="nySmlBjcHAn"><img src="http://www4.pictures.stylebistro.com/mp/If3d4LIeWqjx.jpg" title="NuNaturals Stevia" alt="NuNaturals White Stevia Powder, $23, at&nbsp;walgreens.com" /></div> <div class="below"><strong>NuNaturals</strong> White Stevia Powder, $23, at&nbsp;<a href="http://bit.ly/1bboelc" target="_blank">walgreens.com</a></div> </div> </div> <p></p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="c5vEj5vQ9SA" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="c5vEj5vQ9SA"><img src="http://www3.pictures.stylebistro.com/mp/qewet8izIr_x.jpg" title="Monk Fruit in the Raw" alt="Monk Fruit In The Raw Packets, $4, at drugstore.com" /></div> <div class="below"><strong>Monk Fruit In The Raw</strong> Packets, $4, at <a href="http://bit.ly/1ITl8QD" target="_blank">drugstore.com</a></div> </div> </div> Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:56:22 -0700 http://www.stylebistro.com/Health+Diet+Fitness/articles/sKTI5syKRQI/How+Finally+Kick+Sugar+Addiction+Curb sKTI5syKRQI Shoe and Handbag Queen Elaine Turner Debuts Apparel <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="VfL42mh0NYT" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="VfL42mh0NYT"><img src="http://www3.pictures.stylebistro.com/mp/7xJ8M11sT1ql.jpg" title="elaine turner apparel" alt="Elaine Turner&nbsp;Jessica Dress, $228; Lainey Dress, $358" /></div> <div class="below"><strong>Elaine Turner</strong>&nbsp;<a href="http://bit.ly/1baYo0K" target="_blank">Jessica Dress</a>, $228; Lainey Dress, $358 <div class="below attribution">(Source: Elaine Turner)</div> </div> </div> </div> <p>Ladies and gents, our favorite time of the year is almost upon us: that May-to-September span we like to think of as "easy dress season." You throw on a sweet&nbsp;little&nbsp;frock, slip into a pair of cute kicks and&mdash;<em>bam!&mdash;</em>your styling duties are done for the day. (Leaving you all the more time to focus on where you'll meet for al fresco drinks).&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://bit.ly/1DQHBKO" target="_blank">Elaine Turner</a>&mdash;the shoe and handbag designer&mdash;clearly knows what we're talking about.

A bright&nbsp;<a href="http://bit.ly/1yCE3vL" target="_blank">silk charmeuse kaftan&nbsp;dress</a>&nbsp;($328), for instance, is a slam-dunk choice for summer cocktails or Saturday brunch. A <a href="http://bit.ly/1baYo0K" target="_blank">drapey tank dress</a>&nbsp;($228) can be worn under a fitted blazer for work, or with lace-up gladiator sandals for a girl's night out. Other styles &ndash;including tunic tops and darling shorts&mdash;will roll out later this spring, each available in warm weather-inspired hues such as navy, turquoise and coral.&nbsp;</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60" data-widget-guid="1-SG8KcQV2o" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="1-SG8KcQV2o"><img src="http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/na_BKiqIoTLx.jpg" title="elaine turner apparel" alt="Elaine Turner Gabriella Dress, $328" /></div> <div class="below"><strong>Elaine Turner</strong> <a href="http://bit.ly/1yCE3vL" target="_blank">Gabriella Dress</a>, $328 <div class="below attribution">(Source: Elaine Turner)</div> </div> </div> </div> <p>To check out the initial collection, head <a href="http://bit.ly/1InbeTL" target="_blank">here</a>&mdash;and don't forget to pick up a pair of wear-everywhere shoes, like these cork <a href="http://bit.ly/1GUwPFP" target="_blank">block heels</a>&nbsp;($278), while you're at it.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 17 Apr 2015 12:33:27 -0700 http://www.stylebistro.com/Shopping+News/articles/VDXNqpCNd6-/Shoe+Handbag+Queen+Elaine+Turner+Debuts+Apparel VDXNqpCNd6- Editor's Pick: The Cleansing Conditioner That Will Make You a Co-Washing Convert <div class="widget imagewidgetmain center w60 mceNonEditable" data-widget-guid="9HAyixodOvp" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="9HAyixodOvp"><img src="http://www1.pictures.stylebistro.com/mp/Dn0XaLkraGml.jpg" title="R+Co Analog Cleansing Foam Conditioner Review" alt="The Cleansing Conditioner That Will Make You a Co-Washing Convert" /></div> <div class="below attribution">(Source: R+Co)</div> </div> </div> <p>If you're not familiar with <a href="/Hair+Trend+Report/articles/tCJyDdTa-Yf/Why+You+Need+to+Try+Co+Washes">co-washing</a>, let me break it down for you: Instead of shampooing the hair and then following with a conditioner, a specially-designed&nbsp;cleansing conditioner&mdash;the "co" in co-wash&mdash;cleans&nbsp;and moisturizes in one simple step.&nbsp;While skipping lather, rinse, repeat may sound like shower blasphemy, the end-result of smooth, shiny hair is well worth it.&nbsp;</p> <p>When R+Co's<a href="http://bit.ly/1In261o"> Analog Cleansing Foam Conditioner</a>&nbsp;($29) entered my life, I had already done my homework on the hair-washing trend. Since it&nbsp;still cleanses strands without stripping the natural "good" oils, I figured it would be a gentler alternative for my thick, color-treated hair. After using it for about a month, I am so pleased with the current state of my mane that I'll probably never use shampoo again&mdash;or at least not until I accidentally run out of the good stuff.</p> <div class="widget imagewidgetmain left w30" data-widget-guid="6xIHUAnA4kE" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/image_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="image_widget"> <div> <div class="image-and-info-box" data-guid="6xIHUAnA4kE"><img src="http://www3.pictures.stylebistro.com/mp/TwKRFFSyuhxx.jpg" title="r+co analog cleansing foam conditioner co-wash review" alt="R+Co Analog Cleansing Foam Conditioner, $29, at&nbsp;Neiman Marcus&nbsp;" /></div> <div class="below"><strong>R+Co</strong> Analog Cleansing Foam Conditioner, $29, at&nbsp;<a href="http://bit.ly/1In261o">Neiman Marcus</a>&nbsp; <div class="below attribution">(Source: R+Co)</div> </div> </div> </div> <p>My locks are softer and more manageable than they've ever been thanks to an argan oil, horsetail extract and antioxidant-rich green tea formula crafted for all hair types. Plus, it smells great, and I've noticed a lot less color bleed-out in the shower&mdash;an unfortunate side effect&nbsp;of having&nbsp;dyed-red tresses.</p> <p>Since my hair is naturally&nbsp;on the greasy side, I was worried that skipping a&nbsp;deep-suds session would cause my roots to go haywire and produce oil like crazy. Wrong.&nbsp;I found that my day-two hair was about the same&mdash;if not a little less oily, actually&mdash;than it is with a traditional wash. (After all, that's what <a href="http://bit.ly/1OnxtL2">dry shampoo</a>&nbsp;is for.)&nbsp;</p> <p>Unlike other co-washes, Analog is a foam, which is incredibly satisfying to use. The light, shaving cream&ndash;like texture glides perfectly into strands and immediately does its job. Lightly lather the multi-tasking product on from root to ends&nbsp;and rinse. You'll be left with silky, light-as-air hair.</p> <p>Say goodbye to your shampoo and give co-washing a go with&nbsp;Analog, <a href="http://bit.ly/1In261o">here</a>.</p> Fri, 17 Apr 2015 12:26:07 -0700 http://www.stylebistro.com/Current+Obsession/articles/IF0AZPDnAMS/Editor+Pick+Cleansing+Conditioner+Will+Make IF0AZPDnAMS Vote!

Upbeat tracks with higher BPMs&mdash;beats per minute&mdash;are great for cardio drills. Mid-range BPMs are perfect for floorwork."<br /><br /><strong>What genre of music do you think is most motivational?</strong><br />"My favorite type of music in the gym would be House. I think people have a misconception of good house music and confuse it with 'dance' or 'techno.' The tracks I enjoy the most are ones that have a catchy beat and bass line with a strong vocal. I also love hip-hop/R&amp;B because of what good rhythm and timing it provides."</p> <div class="widget left pull-quote-big-icon w60" data-widget-guid="s2gs_1JfRw2" data-widget-edit-url="/widgets/pull_quote_widget" data-widget-modal="true" data-widget-type="pull_quote_widget"> <p class="text primary">People who listen to music oftentimes perform up to 15 percent better in the gym than people who don't."</p> </div> <p><strong>How do you create a good playlist for a workout?</strong><br />"I usually start off with a treadmill or spin bike drill at the beginning of my workout followed by floor work and finish with some abs.

It is the one product I make sure to keep in my bag and will wear even if I have nothing else on my face. A beauty look doesn't feel complete without it. After switching over to a natural beauty routine, however, I've been dissatisfied with the green beauty options. Then, I discovered <a href="http://www.alimapure.com/products/satin-finishing-powder" target="_blank">Alima Pure's Satin Finishing Powder </a>($16).</p> <p>The first time I wore Alima Pure's powder, I wasn't wearing any foundation or concealer beforehand. It turns out, I didn't even need it. The powder blurred away my redness, pores and blemishes, and erased&nbsp;any trace of oiliness. The lightweight formula feels like nothing on your skin and you could build more coverage if you wish. Because it is a loose powder and you only need a little bit at a time for its full effect, it took me a while to master application without getting it all over my clothes.
