Chantel Hobbs - Faith, Food & Fitness

After struggling with her weight since she was a child, Chantel Hobbs finally reached her breaking point.  One night Chantel said she cried out to God in desparation - she says "I was done fighting, and I needed strength to fight this war."  That was almost 10 years and 200lbs ago! 

Since then Chantel has written two books ("Never Say Diet" and "The One Day Way"), been on Oprah and in People magazine sharing how God gave her strength to not only lose weight, but more importantly live a life God designed her to live.  That's the message Chantel is working to share with others, too!

Part 3 - God wants us to be "our best"

Part 4 - Get "moving" today

Fresh, Clean Breath with Dr. Katz

So, you've bought the candy, flowers and made dinner reservations for this Valentines Day weekend - but what about your breath?  No worries ... bad breath expert Dr. Harold Katz joins us this morning with some helpful tips.

 - Avoid milk chocolate: The combo of dairy proteins and sugar fuels bad breath bacteria.  Dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate is a much better choice.

- No onions, garlic, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussel sprouts: all of these veggies contain a high concentration of sulfur compounds, similar to the chemicals produced by bad breath bugs.

- Drink plenty of water - the less dry your mouth, the fresher your breath.

- Drink tea instead of coffee

- Avoid sugar as much as possible.  Sugar feeds the bad breath.  Look for sugar-free gum and mints
