Tis the season for us to eschew the light grilled fare we associate with warm weather for foods that will warm us from the inside out. A few weeks ago, a cup of soup would have caused sweat beads to form on even the coolest forehead, but nowadays the dropping temps mean a bowl of chili con carne can bring the life back into your chilly digits. But dont be mad at your stomach for craving heavy foods; the ol girl is just trying to build up the blubber to keep herself warm. Its up to you to amp up your calorie-burning by any means necessary. Thank bejeebus for the ECA/Thrive! 2008 convention, which will bring the best in fitness, nutrition, conditioning, and training to the Miami Beach Resort and Spa Hotel.
