Always Scho Up For Yourself

Lies about Calories; Carbs and Fiber

Ready to chat with Marcy about your health and weight loss goals? Click Here


We’re being given so much bad information about food these days. It’s no wonder people come to me extremely confused. The good news is, in no time I help them make sense of all of it, including why we don’t count calories at all in my program: if you’re eating foods that heal your body, you don’t have to. 

But here is what is going on with programs that remove the carb count if an item’s carbs can be counted as fiber! It is misleading to say the least, they are telling people what they want to hear, not telling them the truth. 


Not including the actual calories in carbohydrates on packaging because they are considered fiber can be misleading and potentially problematic for several reasons:

1. Misleading Caloric Information:

  • Caloric Contribution: While fibers are generally considered non-digestible and thus non-caloric, some types of fiber,...

How many steps do you really need?

As you know we just launched our Fitness App:

And what a great time to review the factual research on: How many steps do we really need? If you’re loving those 10,000 or more steps per day, then by all means keep at it. But if you’re using them instead of proper nutrition to keep the weight off, it will catch up with you. Consider a more nutritionally sound eating regime, and guess what? You won’t HAVE to do all those steps everyday with the intent of outrunning your fork. 

In all honesty until a few months ago I was maybe getting 2000 steps a day! I work from home, and unless I left the house, I was getting very few steps. The bug got into my head that I needed more, and I started integrating it. But boy was I happy to understand that I didn’t need them. I’m going back to a 30 min walk or step cardio daily, and not worrying about what all the influencers claim!  I’ve got some links to the data for you,...

The Connection Between Physical Activity and Mental Wellbeing

 The Connection Between Physical Activity and Mental Wellbeing

By: Marcy Schoenborn

If you’re wondering why I came out with a fitness app, it is because of the importance of moving your body. Unfortunately we often exercise for aesthetics, when that is a bonus of the exercise, not really why we need to be moving our bodies. If you currently are not exercising, are a beginner or want to have weekly instruction, and be able to workout at home, you’ll love my app! While, yes, you can do my own personal workout with me weekly, you also have many choices in beginner workouts, even for my friends that need to sit to exercise. Be sure to grab your free trial and get a taste of what we offer at SchoFitWorX. If you like it, join before we’re approved by Apple and Google and save 33% on the monthly programs!

The Science Behind Feeling Energized After a Task

Title: The Science Behind Feeling Energized After Accomplishing Tasks

By: Marcy Schoenborn

Have you ever experienced that rush of energy and motivation that comes after successfully completing a task or achieving a goal? Whether it's finishing a workout, completing a project at work, or even just checking off items on your to-do list, that sense of accomplishment can leave you feeling invigorated and ready to tackle whatever comes next. But what exactly is the science behind this phenomenon?

  1. Neurochemical Response: When we accomplish something, our brain releases a surge of neurotransmitters and hormones, including dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins. These chemicals are often referred to as "feel-good" neurotransmitters because they contribute to sensations of pleasure, satisfaction, and happiness. Dopamine, in particular, plays a crucial role in the brain's reward system and is associated with motivation, goal-directed behavior, and reinforcement learning.
  2. Positive...

Maintaining weight loss can be a challenging journey fraught with ups and downs. Despite our best efforts, many of us find ourselves struggling to shed those extra pounds and keep them off in the long term. While there are numerous factors that contribute to this struggle, three significant barriers stand out: misunderstanding how weight loss works, relying on quick fixes, and succumbing to unhealthy splurges.

By: Marcy Schoenborn

In recent years, the prevalence of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, and hypertension has reached alarming levels, with millions of people worldwide grappling with the consequences of poor lifestyle choices and dietary habits. While medications and medical interventions play a crucial role in managing these conditions, they often serve as mere band-aid solutions, addressing symptoms rather than addressing the root causes of disease. It's time to recognize the pivotal role of food as the foundation of health and wellness, and to shift our focus towards nourishing our bodies with wholesome, nutrient-dense foods to prevent and reverse chronic diseases.

The Epidemic of Chronic Diseases:
