Good Day Kickstarts A Healthier Lifestyle

Posted: Updated:

To quote internationally famous rapper Fabulous, "a winter gut becomes a summer butt. "\

To quote Jennaphr Fredrick, "my winter gut better not be my summer gut."

She plans on kick starting her plan to become healthier during this time of lent.

She says she is "stuck in a pasta, pizza, Doritos trap" that she needs to break out of.

But it actually may not TOTALLY be all of her fault.

It turns out cravings are based on science. In a study published in 2006 in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers reported that the changing seasons can affect our appetites, making us hungrier in the fall and winter.

Along with many others, Jenn tried to do something.

She read that you could burn 476 an hour sledding, so she went sledding with the kids.

Then she also went snowboarding with those darn kids. The problem is also she went eating with the kids.

And drinking with her friends and eating with friends... the list goes on.

The lithe method team says summer bodies are made in the winter and shape magazine says you can have a bikini body all year

A lot of people are using lent to try and cut something out. You have to start somewhere after all.

 Fox 29 reporter Jennaphr Fredrick wants to know what you guys are doing or what you are giving up?

Paleo diet? South beach? Extra time at the gym?

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
