Chris Lane and Chase Rice stole girls’ hearts at FGCU Nest Fest Thursday at Germain Arena

If you weren’t one of the girls in the front of the pit, then you most likely didn’t get an exclusive selfie with Chris Lane or high-five Chase Rice. Lane performed the opening act for Rice at Nest Fest hosted by the FGCU Programming Board at Germain Arena Thursday night. Lane got the crowd going with not only his own songs but mixed in a little bit of “Wrecking Ball” from Miley Cyrus and “Bye Bye Bye” from NSYNC.

Healthy meals can now be delivered to your doorstep

There’s always an excuse for choosing unhealthy meals over healthy ones. What’s yours? Is it because you don’t have time to cook or because it’s too much work or simply because it’s much easier to hit the drive-thru or stroll through the prepackaged frozen food aisle in the grocery store? With family, work, school and social life, grocery shopping and cooking for a day or days ahead doesn’t always fit in a 24-hour day. It’s easy to blame everything around you as the reason why your meals are rather on the unhealthy side. Not to mention, there aren’t many,...

Guilt-free alternatives for Super Bowl snacking

We all know that the Super Bowl isn’t all about the game. At least for some of us, it’s the super food we look forward to while watching the game and, of course, the commercials. Super Bowl parties are a big Sunday fun day for football fans and non-fans alike when cheering goes hand-in-hand with eating. For many years, certain foods have claimed their spot in our living room and kitchen to complement the Super Bowl spirit. However, most of those traditional options are filled with carbs and fats that, although help soak up the alcohol that’s consumed on...

Retro Fitness combines training with Netflix and virtual games

Time flies during a movie, whether it’s at home or at the theater. One minute, you have a full bag of popcorn or snacks. Then, the next minute you look down at the end of the movie, and about 1,000 empty calories later, it’s all gone. What if instead of gaining 1,000 calories while watching a movie, you lost that much? At Retro Fitness in Fort Myers you can do just that. With a big screen cardio theater room at its facility, members can hop on the treadmill, bike or elliptical, and instead of focusing on how many minutes...

Studies suggest sugar is as addictive as cocaine

Based on several studies regarding the health and diet of our society, it is an unfortunate and clear fact that we eat way too much sugar, and it’s slowly causing problems such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and other chronic diseases, including cancer. Some scientists and health experts are going as far as to call that little happiness of ours a “drug” and our love for it an “addiction.” Can you go for a few days without drinking a soda? Can you go for weeks without any added refined sugar in your diet? Or, can you go without sweets when things fall out of your hands? If you said no to any of these questions, then you’re likely dependent on sugar. Michael Stull — an...

Hold your cookies. According to the “2015- 2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans,” published Jan. 8. by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Americans’ eating habits and diets need improvement.
