How many times have you walked out of Outback Steakhouse wishing you could SOMEHOW find a recipe for their Bloomin' Onion that is WAY kinder to your waistline?! Well guess what ;) You're in luck!

Steamin’, soft, aromatic onion. Crunchy, spicy, savory coating. Tangy, creamy, decadent dipping sauce. You guessed it: we’re daydreamin’ about a Bloomin’ Onion, mates.   For some reason, every time we write “Bloomin’ Onion,” our mental monologue adopts a super-cute Aussie accent. It makes the deep-fried fantasy even more enticing because everything is better with an Australian accent, right? As we sit here salivating over the glorious steakhouse-signature in our Bloomin’ daydream, imagining ourselves sharing, dipping, and feasting, the harsh slap of reality makes an appearance:   One Bloomin’ Onion at your local steakhouse has a staggering 1948 calories, 160 grams of deep-fried fat (WTF?!), and 117 grams of simple carbohydrates, the same amount of carbsread more READ MORE

The POUND Girl's #TWT Kickin' Orange Chicken!

We’re pretty confident that orange chicken, although radioactive-orange and suspiciously tangy, is one of the BEST comfort foods on earth. Any Chinese takeout food, for that matter, lights quite a savory fire on our taste buds… and in our bellies! Loaded with excessive amounts of sodium (9,000 mg in ONE SERVING when 2,000 mg is a good daily max!), white rice, corn-syrupy sauces and often, MSG — it turns out our trusty takeaway isn’t so trusty afterall.   But seriously. Orange Chicken was practically BEGGING to be Tweaked. It even tweeted at us saying, “Tweak me, POUND Girls!!” (We’re going loco over pollo.) Believe-it-or-not, our cleaned up Kickin’ Orange Chicken is gluten-free, refined grain-free, lowerread more READ MORE

The POUND Girls GF Pumpkin Donuts

Glazed donuts are in a whole ‘nother dimension of tastiness. But when something is literally made from all the worst things for you (ie sugar, saturated fat and white flour) it’s hard for it NOT to be off-the-charts delish, right?   Here’s a stat that will knock the donut right out of your mouth: One, (yes, only ONE) pumpkin spice donut from a standard donut joint has over 450 calories and loads of sugar! We like to indulge in a few bites of the real deal now and then, but with THAT many calories, we could just eat a real, hearty meal, like some zesty zasta, kebabs and cobbler instead! That ENTIRE MEAL comes outread more READ MORE

We're tweaking your favorite Comfort Foods during our #TwoWeekTweak contest -- and we're starting with this delicious Fakin' Bacon Mac N Cheese! Get the healthy, yummy recipe here!

Mac. And. Cheese. An unbeatable combo, indeed. When it comes to comfort food, this is one of our TOP go-to’s, and we bet we’re not alone!   Whether you pour your Mac from a convenient, preservative-filled blue box and heat to golden-yellow perfection or labor it out over the stove with real butter, oil, melty cheese and refined-wheat elbow pasta, you’re still faced with one depressing fact: Mac and Cheese is not healthy. (cue the Price Is Right wrong-answer buzzer here!)   Not-so-fun fact: Your run-of-the-mill blue box mac n cheese has upwards of 410 calories and 570 mg sodium per serving!   As you know, we believe in comforting our cravings and we never,read more READ MORE

We're tweakin' your kids' lunch! We created 3 (YES 3!) recipes that are healthy, delicious, and will have your kids asking for MORE PLEASE!! They won't want to make ANY trades at the lunch table!

There’s something funny that happens in the Fall. As soon as we realize that the sun is getting a little lazier comin’ up on time, we start to do the same… and so the slump into Winter begins. But, there might be certain little peeps runnin’ around your household that are just kickin’ things into high gear — your kids — who just returned to school from summer break! Heaven knows you can’t let those kiddos down by falling into a slow-paced Fall routine, right?   The best way we’ve found to stay on-pointe and in a peppy, Summertime state-of-mind all the time is to prep our food; especially LUNCH. And, why treat ONLY yourselfread more READ MORE

It only takes 21 days to form a habit -- and we are challenging you to try out these 5 new habits during #freeyourselffall!

You brush your teeth (Yes?), you wash your hair (most of the time), you pack a lunch (bonus points) and hey, you might even be in the habit of watching a show on Netflix (uh-oh). You also go to POUND classes which is an excellent habit, we must say! Well, guys… these are all habits that you may or may not know you’ve formed — little details in your life that make you YOU. Some habits start when you’re young and seamlessly transition with you into your adult life: how you tie your hair back, when you eat breakfast, etc.   But other habits are much more deeply embedded and are tough to pinpoint.

Free Yourself with this Fall Playlist -- especially curated by The POUND Girls

When we started putting together the #FreeYourselfFall playlist, we thought about songs that we enjoyed listening to when we’re getting creative. Whether we’re trying out a new recipe or getting our hands dirty in a DIY project, we’ve always got music playing in the background — and it’s not necessarily the kind of jams you’d think! You guys could probably guess a lot of our favorite artists to listen to while working out but we also want to share our out-of-the-gym favorites with you! Fall is the perfect time to let your creativity SOAR — so put on this playlist and try something new!
