What information and/or personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect information from you when you fill out a form, respond to a survey or browse our site. This information is used to personalize your experience, improve our website and to send periodic emails. Personal data can be captured when you fill out contact forms or submit comments, and/or through cookies and analytics.

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we need it, and we don’t share personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or protect our rights.


When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Information provided in contact forms are used for customer service purposes. We do not share this information.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

For Educational and Informational Purposes Only

I am not a licensed dietitian, medical doctor, nor a credentialed fitness expert. The purpose of my blog is to share what I have learned about weight loss, fitness and wellness in a fun, informative way. I do have a formal education and experience in research and writing, and have personally tried the nutritional and exercise information I reference on this site. To the extent possible, I provide the latest research on the topics I write about, so that you can get the most useful, accurate information available. Ultimately, you are responsible for your own health, and any advice I may give is my recommendation, not a prescription.

The information presented on this website is not intended to be used as medical advice or as a substitute for medical counseling. All information should be used in conjunction with the guidance and care of your medical doctor or preferred health care provider. Consult a physician before beginning any nutrition or exercise program. If you choose not to obtain the consent of your physician and/or work with your physician throughout the duration of your time using any of the recommendations on this site, you agree to accept full responsibility for your actions.
