There are certain moments in life that stay with you forever. The first time you threw a baseball, the first time you rode a bike, the first time you went camping in the great outdoors—and the s'mores that went with them . . . mmm . . . s'mores . . . oh wait. Sorry. For a second, I forgot who I was writing for. Anyway, what do all of these amazing experiences have in common? They were shared with the man, the myth, the legend—your dad!
And not only is June 17th the day to celebrate the old boy, but the week leading up to Father's Day is Men's Health Week—the time of the year when we raise awareness of preventable health problems in men. So maybe it's the time to get Dad those golf clubs he's been itching for, and encourage him to have that doctor checkup he's been putting off since the Clinton Administration. That way, you can celebrate Father's Day for many more years to come.
But I can almost hear you dads out there saying, "Hey, get back to the golf clubs part." So let's do it. It's time to give back to Dad and show him thanks for all those years he put up with Slayer's Reign in Blood album blasting from your bedroom stereo. Dads come in all shapes and sizes, so how do you know what the right gift is for your patron? We're here to help!
But more than any of these things, this Father's Day, give the gift you know your dad would love that money can't buy—time with you. OK . . . and the golf clubs.

For most, it happens in the late afternoon, usually between lunch and 6ish: that feeling of sluggish, low-energy brain-deadness that makes you want to call it quits for the day. Since that's generally not an option, you reach for the next solution: the caffeine pick-me-up. Whether it's coffee or tea or a yerba mate, many of us are in the habit of using caffeine to prop ourselves up during the draggiest part of the day. Of course, some of us—and you know who you are—go one step further and combine refined sugar and caffeine. Nothing like a Frappucino® and double fudge mini-donut to shake things up. It's a slippery slope.
But what if you don't want to be a Coffee Achiever? Maybe it's getting in the way of sleep later that night. Maybe you're doing the Beachbody Ultimate Reset™ or a general cleanse. Or maybe you've done some research, weighed the pros and cons (as laid out in the Beachbody Newsletter a few weeks ago), and decided caffeine just isn't your thing. How to break the cycle? Here are 7 healthy ways to pull yourself through an afternoon.
If caffeine is your habit, it will require a bit of effort to replace it with other ways to lively up yourself. But the first step is simply becoming aware of all the other effective options available to you. And now you know. Welcome to your new, jitter-free, energized, oxygen-rich world.

Who doesn't love summer? Wearing bathing suits, playing Frisbee® at the beach, swimming on a warm August night, and the abundance of yummy fruits and veggies that grow during the summer months. There's truly nothing like the flavor of food that's ripe and ready to be eaten from your local farmers' market or, if you're lucky, from your own backyard. Not only does local, seasonal food taste better, but less time traveling from vine to plate means it maintains more vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients.
Here's just some of the produce in season that'll keep you healthy and strong. That way, you can enjoy every last sunset and sunrise this summer.
So don't starve yourself of delectable food this season. Summer offers a wide variety of fruits and vegetables packed with nutrients to make you as beautiful as you can be. Take advantage of the season. It won't be here forever.
