The POUND Girls' All in one holiday chicken dinner recipe!

Does the thought of puttin’ dinner in the oven make you sweat? Not because the oven is hot, but because you have no idea what to do with the dang thing? Pre-heat? Bake? Broil? Boil? WHAT!? (cue the beads of sweat. Drip, drip…)   Recently, one of our lovely POUND HQ ladies confessed her own fear of the oven to us. She mentioned that this keeps her at an oven-mitt’s distance from testin’ out new recipes and desserts — even Tweaks, treats and goodies that WE release each month. (GASP!)   It got us thinking: How many other peeps out there are missing out on all the delicious simplicity of an oven-baked meal just becauseread more READ MORE

Read all about Brittany Hall's amazing transformation!

We love hearing from our #POUNDPosse all over the world and ironically, we find some of our best success stories on the platform that ONLY allows 140 characters! We saw Brittany’s story when she tweeted us before and after pictures of her AMAZING transformation and immediately asked us to tell us more! Look at her amazing transformation and you’ll see why   Brittany’s journey began in February 2014 when she tried vegetarianism “for the 3rd or 4th time” and she decided to start walking. Before that, she said, she “ate like crap, ate out of boredome, and for comfort – [she] was crippled by laziness.” Brittany started off by setting a goal to walk 10,000read more READ MORE

We’ve seen her entire career blossom and she has quickly become a leader: teaching classes of all kinds, changing the lives of her students and making a huge impact on the lives of those fortunate enough to be around her.   We’ve been lucky enough to get to know Joyce on a personal level (aka, many fart jokes have been exchanged… perhapsread more READ MORE
