Walmart and Brandon Maxwell Ink Fashion Deal

The New York designer and “Project Runway” judge, who hails from Longview, Texas, has been named the first creative director for Walmart Inc.’s exclusive fashion brands Free Assembly and Scoop, where he will be responsible for designing seasonal collections for men, women and children, as well as accessories. He will also be involved in brand marketing initiatives and campaigns.

More from WWD

Free Assembly is comprised of elevated everyday essentials and is stocked in 500 Walmart doors. Scoop is more trend-driven, building on the legacy of the late New York boutique of the same name, and stocked in 250 doors. Maxwell’s guidance on the collections will begin to be seen for holiday his first fully designed collections will make their debuts for spring 2022.

“When I started my brand, I wanted to make things that help people feel their best and do that for everyone,” said Maxwell, who came to design through styling, most notably for Lady Gaga, and launched his namesake collection in 2015. “This partnership allows me to make beautiful designs accessible for all and I feel really proud and excited to do that.”

Like most Southerners, Maxwell has a long history with the Bentonville, Ark.-born retailer.

“Growing up, my friends and I would go to Walmart a lot. And I still go to Walmart several times a week,” he said via Zoom from his hometown, where he was visiting family. “So I feel like I know the customer quite well, the customer is my friends and family, the customer is me.”

The news comes just weeks after the retail giant promoted Denise Incandela from executive vice president of the women’s group to its new head of apparel, and tapping Maxwell is a hint at where she plans to take Walmart as it drives deeper into fashion.

“Everything is on the table,” said Incadela, who came to Walmart in 2017 with executive experience at Aldo Shoes, Ralph Lauren and Saks Fifth Avenue.

“I’m thinking about what the position of Walmart apparel should be going forward and how we continue to evolve and build on what has traditionally been a basics business. Brandon is emblematic of that,” she said, explaining that when they met in November 2019, she was not initially looking to hire a creative director. “I loved his vision and how passionate he was about giving the Walmart customer a more luxury shopping experience.…I love what he’s done with both lines. I love his perspective on color and print and he styles with a feminine touch.”

Over the past few years, the retailer has been polishing its fashion image by adding 1,000 brands to its offerings, including Levi’s, Champion, Free People, Jordache, Lee, Reebok, Bonobos and Eloqui, as well as private lines Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara and Free Assembly. Walmart has said that three of its apparel lines are $2 billion brands.

“Brandon is not someone you might have thought we’d partner with because of his luxury background, but our goal is to establish ourselves as a fashion destination, get a bigger percentage of a woman’s closet, and attract new customers. There are many ways we will do that and designer collaborations could be part of it,” she continued, acknowledging a strategy that’s been successful for competitor Target, as well as countless other brands at the high and low end of the market.

In her new role as EVP of apparel and private brands, Incandela oversees all apparel offerings online and in stores.

“We are also investing in the in-store experience for Free Assembly, new mannequins, fixtures and hangers, so it’s a full 360,” she said.

How will content fit in, something that competitor Amazon has been working on integrating into its retail experience with streaming Amazon Prime fashion-based shows such as “Making the Cut” and “Savage x Fenty?”

“It’s increasingly important and not just our own content, but user-generated content and influencer content,” Incandela said of Walmart’s content strategy, which has included two recent live shopping events with influencers on TikTok. She added that Maxwell “will have a strong voice in content, marketing and creative — that’s part of his role for those two brands. Not just designing clothes, but communications.”

Maxwell, who presented his spring 2021 main line collection in December and has yet to reveal plans for fall, has been working with the Walmart design teams based in New York. “From the first time I was cutting rolls of fabric in my grandmother’s dress shop, it’s always been a chance to learn. I don’t believe clothes are just clothes, they allow you to see the world in a different way and express yourself in a different way. To bring that to more people is the journey I’ve been on, and bringing my life in New York and my life in Texas together feels great,” he said.

Store appearances are definitely in the cards, he said.

“I hope to do as many things face-to-face as I can, when it’s safe to do so, because my job as a designer is to be of service, to bring high-quality, beautiful design to everyone. And you can’t get there without understanding their lives, and what purpose they need a fashion piece to fulfill.”

Naturally, some of what he does will find its way to Walmart. His spring collection, in particular, featured several more casual pieces, like twist-waistband sweatpants and a sweatshirt with a train, that one could see translating easily to lower price points.

To mark the announcement of the partnership, Walmart is rolling out a line of face masks designed by Maxwell available online, and donating $100,000 to DonorsChoose.org, a charity he chose because of its dedication to helping public school teachers get materials they need for students to learn. “My sister is an educator, so it’s one thing I’m passionate about,” the designer said.

On plans for a future season of “Project Runway,” he was mum. “I love doing it, and my connection with the show has only strengthened my ability to talk to people who want to go out and start their own collections,” said Maxwell. “That will be the most inspiring thing for me if someone comes into Walmart and sees design there that inspires them to want to go out and do this, too.”

Best Supplements You May Need Now, According to Experts

When it comes to eating right, it's easy to get distracted by complex eating plans. But you also need to ensure the bases are covered. You need—to quote mom—to get your vitamins.Researchers found that many adults aren't getting adequate levels of Vitamins A, C and D, in a recent study at the University of Illinois. This doesn't mean you should start popping multivitamins and supplements as insurance (especially because recent studies indicate that they're largely ineffective)—in fact, it's best to get our nutrients from whole foods.Here are some of the most common vitamins we don't get enough of, along with the foods that can replenish your natural stores. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these 19 Ways You're Ruining Your Body, Say Health Experts. 1 Vitamin D There's been a lot of talk about vitamin D deficiency recently, and it's worth repeating. Up to 70% of us aren't getting enough. The sunshine vitamin—so named because the sun produces D upon skin contact—is essential for healthy bones and teeth, and emerging evidence links it to a lower risk of some cancers. "The most common deficiency that I see in my practice is vitamin D," says Gina Consalvo, a registered dietitian who practices in Pennsylvania. "Our body does make some D when exposed to sunlight, but usually not enough to meet our body's needs," she adds.How to get it: Consalvo recommends whole eggs, fish oil and fish such as herring, halibut, salmon, mackerel, or tuna. Fortified foods like milk, breakfast cereal and yogurt are also rich in D.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 2 Vitamin B12 Essential for the production of red blood cells, nerves and DNA, B12 also plays a crucial role in the production of energy. It's found in whole food sources like meat, eggs and fortified milk. But plants don't make B12 if you're following a vegetarian or vegan diet, unless you're a lacto-ovo vegetarian, you might not be getting enough.How to get it: Beef (always go for grass-fed), chicken, seafood, dairy products and eggs. According to the USDA, the foods with the highest levels of B12 are beef, clams and lamb. 3 Vitamin A Poor vitamin A—despite its place at the top of the alphabetical heap, it's underappreciated. But you definitely want to ensure you're stocked up: It's essential for proper immune system function, tissue growth and repair and bone strength.How to get it: According to the USDA, foods in the top-10 highest sources of A are beef, veal, sweet potatoes and carrots. The CDC's Diet and Nutrition Report adds that fish-liver oils, liver, egg yolks, butter and cream are known for their higher content of vitamin A.RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Vitamin C Up to 15% of us aren't getting adequate C, and that number's on the rise compared to previous decades, according to the CDC's National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. It may not prevent colds, but C is a powerful antioxidant and is essential for healthy skin tendons and blood vessels. In a University of Arizona study published in the journal Nutrition&Metabolism, researchers found that vitamin C levels impacted fat oxidation during exercise, and cited a survey that showed levels of C have a direct relationship to body fat and waist size. (But don't use that as an excuse to go C-crazy: megadoses aren't effective and may be toxic.)How to get it: Oranges are considered the gold standard, but many more foods are richer in the vitamin: Red peppers have almost four times the C of an orange! Also good sources: Chiles, broccoli, brussels sprouts and strawberries. Vitamin C also makes your skin tighter and look younger.RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers. 5 Potassium Only 4.7% of Americans consume adequate potassium, University of Illinois researchers found. You best get to it as the mineral is crucial in maintaining healthy heart and kidney function. The nutrient also helps flatten your belly in two ways: you recover after a workout, and it helps the body flush out water and sodium, reducing belly bloat.How to get it: Add bananas, avocados, nuts and leafy green vegetables to your grocery list. According to the USDA, the food highest in potassium is molasses, if that's your jam. And to get through life at your healthiest, Don't Take This Supplement, Which Can Raise Your Cancer Risk.

This Plant-Based Fast Food Chain Is About To Double Its Locations

If you're trying to be conscious of the ways your patterns of consumption affect the planet (and your health), and you dig a good drive-thru, good news: A dynamic, plant-based fast-food franchise is expanding, as its key new investor says the world should watch for more like this to come.PRNewswire published this in recent days: California's Plant Power Fast Food hast just completed its $7.5 million Series A capital. With a name that suggests revolution, Plant Power Fast Food calls itself the home of "100% plant-based burgers, fries and shakes." They currently have seven locations in operation throughout California with an eighth in the works at the University of California San Diego.RELATED: Costco Foods You Should Always Avoid, According to NutritionistsNow, the chain says, they'll use this newly secured capital to "to continue to execute its expansion plans with a focus on new corporate unit development," according to their announcement. That's set to include eight new store openings in such cities as Sacramento and Hollywood, and what appears to be its first inter-state opening in Las Vegas. Said Lee Piccoli, CEO of the investment company Fusion Ventures: "Plant Power Fast Food has built something unique and scalable, and the brand has captured the hearts of aspirational consumers whose needs are evolving."This is an exciting development in the plant-based movement, as Plant Power Fast Food boasts a truly indulgent menu. Apart from their salads that feature superfood ingredients (which seem tantalizing in their own rite), the chain offers an extensive menu of burgers inspired by fast-food classics (the double-decker, sesame seed-topped "Big Zac," named after co-founder Zach Vouga, is a clear plant play on the Big Mac at McDonald's). They also offer vegan chicken selections, all-natural fries ("Just potatoes, oil, and salt," says their site), dairy-free "shakes," and novelty items such as a kombucha float.As our eating evolves, it's fun to see brands that are pushing the bounds of what's possible with plant-based options (like Plant Power's "Rambler Burger" topped with American "cheese" and onion rings).

15 Weight Loss Tips That Are Evidence Based, Say Experts

Fad diets come and go, but there are a few tried and true methods to losing weight that actually work—and don't involve unhealthy habits like not eating enough or working out too much. Adrienne Youdim, MD, FACP, an internist who specializes in medical weight loss and nutrition and author of the #1 Amazon bestseller Hungry for More: Stories and Science to Inspire Weight Loss from the Inside Out, offers 15 evidence-based weight loss tips to Eat This, Not That! that can help you achieve your weight loss goals the right way. 1 Get Enough Sleep Sleep is crucial for weight loss, Dr. Youdim explains. "Sleep deprivation has been shown to increase hunger hormones as well as cravings for highly palatable (i.e. high fat, high sugar) foods," she says. She suggests shooting for 7-8 hours of sleep per night. 2 Reduce Alcohol Intake Alcohol is a "double whammy" in terms of weight gain. "Alcohol is not only empty calories but also affects leptin —a hormone that signals fullness to the brain, and also has negative effects on sleep quantity and quality," she says. 3 Eat Real Food Studies show that processed versions of whole foods don't suppress hunger hormones as well as the real deal, Dr. Youdim reveals. "For example, processed chicken (like the kind you get in frozen meals or fast food patties), will suppress hunger hormones less than a real piece of chicken breast."RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Eat More Protein Amp up protein intake if you want to lose weight. "Higher protein intake helps preserve muscle mass (and therefore your metabolism) while losing weight so that you lose fat mass not muscle," says Dr. Youdim. She recommends 1-1.2 grams per kg body weight. 5 Start Your Day with Protein Dr. Youdim suggests eating a protein packed breakfast. "There is a lot of controversy around 'to breakfast or not,' but studies show that a high-protein breakfast (ie 20 grams) will suppress hunger hormones all day," she reveals. 6 Practice Self-Compassion Having a good attitude and practicing self love is key to reaching your goals. "Often we bully ourselves into losing weight. This leads to sabotage, while self-compassion has been shown to be more effective in habit change," Dr. Youdim says. 7 Manage Your Stress Finding ways to de-stress can be key to losing weight. "Stress literally hijacks our hunger hormones, tricking us to feeling hungry when we are not," Dr. Youdim explains. She suggests managing stress with exercise, journaling, and mindfulness—not food.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 8 Practice Mindful Meditation Getting your zen on can be helpful on your weight loss journey. Practicing mindful meditation "has been shown to facilitate habit change." 9 Reframe Your Mindset A positive mindset around and your habits is associated with greater weight loss and has metabolic benefits as well, according to Dr. Youdin. "In one study of hotel staff, those who were told that their labor was a form of exercise lost visceral fat and reduced blood pressure as compared to those who did not receive this guidance," she says. 10 Start Strength Training Building muscle will help mitigate the natural loss of muscle that occurs with aging, says Dr. Youdin. "More muscle means better metabolism and equals more calories burned." 11 Think Abundance, Not Restriction Dr. Youdin maintains that restrictive mindsets around food backfire and can lead to binging. "Reframe restriction to a mindset of abundance," she suggests. "Eat so much of what serves you so you have less room for what does not. No one gained weight from too much chicken." 12 Track Your Mood Pay attention to your mental state before you reach for food. "We eat for so many reasons other than hunger, like sadness, frustration, anxiety, and boredom. Often, we are unaware of the trigger," Dr. Youdin points out. "Notice your patterns/triggers and find alternatives to food such as sunshine, nature, and heartfelt connection."RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science 13 Get a Pet If you live alone, Dr. Youdin suggests getting a pet. "Loneliness, whether due to social distancing or relationship disputes caused by the endless political drama and current events, has affected everyone this year," she says. "Connection with animals is a dopamine booster and an antidote to the dopamine we chase after with chocolate." 14 Caffeinate Consuming caffeine can help you lose weight. "This has appetite suppressant effects and can rev up metabolism," she reveals. "Just be careful but not to over-do it!" 15 Manage Dietary Setbacks with Kindness "Those who manage dietary set-backs or weight regain with kindness were more likely to get back to their routines as compared to people who catastrophize weight gain," Dr. Youdin reveals. "The latter group were less likely to resume healthy eating patterns and physical activity." And now that you've got a great foundation, don't miss these additional 19 Weight Loss Foods That Really Work, Say Experts.

If you're trying to be conscious of the ways your patterns of consumption affect the planet (and your health), and you dig a good drive-thru, good news: A dynamic, plant-based fast-food franchise is expanding, as its key new investor says the world should watch for more like this to come.PRNewswire published this in recent days: California's Plant Power Fast Food hast just completed its $7.5 million Series A capital. With a name that suggests revolution, Plant Power Fast Food calls itself the home of "100% plant-based burgers, fries and shakes." They currently have seven locations in operation throughout California with an eighth in the works at the University of California San Diego.RELATED: Costco Foods You Should Always Avoid, According to NutritionistsNow, the chain says, they'll use this newly secured capital to "to continue to execute its expansion plans with a focus on new corporate unit development," according to their announcement. That's set to include eight new store openings in such cities as Sacramento and Hollywood, and what appears to be its first inter-state opening in Las Vegas. Said Lee Piccoli, CEO of the investment company Fusion Ventures: "Plant Power Fast Food has built something unique and scalable, and the brand has captured the hearts of aspirational consumers whose needs are evolving."This is an exciting development in the plant-based movement, as Plant Power Fast Food boasts a truly indulgent menu. Apart from their salads that feature superfood ingredients (which seem tantalizing in their own rite), the chain offers an extensive menu of burgers inspired by fast-food classics (the double-decker, sesame seed-topped "Big Zac," named after co-founder Zach Vouga, is a clear plant play on the Big Mac at McDonald's). They also offer vegan chicken selections, all-natural fries ("Just potatoes, oil, and salt," says their site), dairy-free "shakes," and novelty items such as a kombucha float.As our eating evolves, it's fun to see brands that are pushing the bounds of what's possible with plant-based options (like Plant Power's "Rambler Burger" topped with American "cheese" and onion rings).

15 Weight Loss Tips That Are Evidence Based, Say Experts

Fad diets come and go, but there are a few tried and true methods to losing weight that actually work—and don't involve unhealthy habits like not eating enough or working out too much. Adrienne Youdim, MD, FACP, an internist who specializes in medical weight loss and nutrition and author of the #1 Amazon bestseller Hungry for More: Stories and Science to Inspire Weight Loss from the Inside Out, offers 15 evidence-based weight loss tips to Eat This, Not That! that can help you achieve your weight loss goals the right way. 1 Get Enough Sleep Sleep is crucial for weight loss, Dr. Youdim explains. "Sleep deprivation has been shown to increase hunger hormones as well as cravings for highly palatable (i.e. high fat, high sugar) foods," she says. She suggests shooting for 7-8 hours of sleep per night. 2 Reduce Alcohol Intake Alcohol is a "double whammy" in terms of weight gain. "Alcohol is not only empty calories but also affects leptin —a hormone that signals fullness to the brain, and also has negative effects on sleep quantity and quality," she says. 3 Eat Real Food Studies show that processed versions of whole foods don't suppress hunger hormones as well as the real deal, Dr. Youdim reveals. "For example, processed chicken (like the kind you get in frozen meals or fast food patties), will suppress hunger hormones less than a real piece of chicken breast."RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Eat More Protein Amp up protein intake if you want to lose weight. "Higher protein intake helps preserve muscle mass (and therefore your metabolism) while losing weight so that you lose fat mass not muscle," says Dr. Youdim. She recommends 1-1.2 grams per kg body weight. 5 Start Your Day with Protein Dr. Youdim suggests eating a protein packed breakfast. "There is a lot of controversy around 'to breakfast or not,' but studies show that a high-protein breakfast (ie 20 grams) will suppress hunger hormones all day," she reveals. 6 Practice Self-Compassion Having a good attitude and practicing self love is key to reaching your goals. "Often we bully ourselves into losing weight. This leads to sabotage, while self-compassion has been shown to be more effective in habit change," Dr. Youdim says. 7 Manage Your Stress Finding ways to de-stress can be key to losing weight. "Stress literally hijacks our hunger hormones, tricking us to feeling hungry when we are not," Dr. Youdim explains. She suggests managing stress with exercise, journaling, and mindfulness—not food.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 8 Practice Mindful Meditation Getting your zen on can be helpful on your weight loss journey. Practicing mindful meditation "has been shown to facilitate habit change." 9 Reframe Your Mindset A positive mindset around and your habits is associated with greater weight loss and has metabolic benefits as well, according to Dr. Youdin. "In one study of hotel staff, those who were told that their labor was a form of exercise lost visceral fat and reduced blood pressure as compared to those who did not receive this guidance," she says. 10 Start Strength Training Building muscle will help mitigate the natural loss of muscle that occurs with aging, says Dr. Youdin. "More muscle means better metabolism and equals more calories burned." 11 Think Abundance, Not Restriction Dr. Youdin maintains that restrictive mindsets around food backfire and can lead to binging. "Reframe restriction to a mindset of abundance," she suggests. "Eat so much of what serves you so you have less room for what does not. No one gained weight from too much chicken." 12 Track Your Mood Pay attention to your mental state before you reach for food. "We eat for so many reasons other than hunger, like sadness, frustration, anxiety, and boredom. Often, we are unaware of the trigger," Dr. Youdin points out. "Notice your patterns/triggers and find alternatives to food such as sunshine, nature, and heartfelt connection."RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science 13 Get a Pet If you live alone, Dr. Youdin suggests getting a pet. "Loneliness, whether due to social distancing or relationship disputes caused by the endless political drama and current events, has affected everyone this year," she says. "Connection with animals is a dopamine booster and an antidote to the dopamine we chase after with chocolate." 14 Caffeinate Consuming caffeine can help you lose weight. "This has appetite suppressant effects and can rev up metabolism," she reveals. "Just be careful but not to over-do it!" 15 Manage Dietary Setbacks with Kindness "Those who manage dietary set-backs or weight regain with kindness were more likely to get back to their routines as compared to people who catastrophize weight gain," Dr. Youdin reveals. "The latter group were less likely to resume healthy eating patterns and physical activity." And now that you've got a great foundation, don't miss these additional 19 Weight Loss Foods That Really Work, Say Experts.

Walmart and Brandon Maxwell Ink Fashion Deal

The New York designer and “Project Runway” judge, who hails from Longview, Texas, has been named the first creative director for Walmart Inc.’s exclusive fashion brands Free Assembly and Scoop, where he will be responsible for designing seasonal collections for men, women and children, as well as accessories. He will also be involved in brand marketing initiatives and campaigns.

More from WWD

Free Assembly is comprised of elevated everyday essentials and is stocked in 500 Walmart doors. Scoop is more trend-driven, building on the legacy of the late New York boutique of the same name, and stocked in 250 doors. Maxwell’s guidance on the collections will begin to be seen for holiday his first fully designed collections will make their debuts for spring 2022.

“When I started my brand, I wanted to make things that help people feel their best and do that for everyone,” said Maxwell, who came to design through styling, most notably for Lady Gaga, and launched his namesake collection in 2015. “This partnership allows me to make beautiful designs accessible for all and I feel really proud and excited to do that.”

Like most Southerners, Maxwell has a long history with the Bentonville, Ark.-born retailer.

“Growing up, my friends and I would go to Walmart a lot. And I still go to Walmart several times a week,” he said via Zoom from his hometown, where he was visiting family. “So I feel like I know the customer quite well, the customer is my friends and family, the customer is me.”

The news comes just weeks after the retail giant promoted Denise Incandela from executive vice president of the women’s group to its new head of apparel, and tapping Maxwell is a hint at where she plans to take Walmart as it drives deeper into fashion.

“Everything is on the table,” said Incadela, who came to Walmart in 2017 with executive experience at Aldo Shoes, Ralph Lauren and Saks Fifth Avenue.

“I’m thinking about what the position of Walmart apparel should be going forward and how we continue to evolve and build on what has traditionally been a basics business. Brandon is emblematic of that,” she said, explaining that when they met in November 2019, she was not initially looking to hire a creative director. “I loved his vision and how passionate he was about giving the Walmart customer a more luxury shopping experience.…I love what he’s done with both lines. I love his perspective on color and print and he styles with a feminine touch.”

Over the past few years, the retailer has been polishing its fashion image by adding 1,000 brands to its offerings, including Levi’s, Champion, Free People, Jordache, Lee, Reebok, Bonobos and Eloqui, as well as private lines Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara and Free Assembly. Walmart has said that three of its apparel lines are $2 billion brands.

“Brandon is not someone you might have thought we’d partner with because of his luxury background, but our goal is to establish ourselves as a fashion destination, get a bigger percentage of a woman’s closet, and attract new customers. There are many ways we will do that and designer collaborations could be part of it,” she continued, acknowledging a strategy that’s been successful for competitor Target, as well as countless other brands at the high and low end of the market.

In her new role as EVP of apparel and private brands, Incandela oversees all apparel offerings online and in stores.

“We are also investing in the in-store experience for Free Assembly, new mannequins, fixtures and hangers, so it’s a full 360,” she said.

How will content fit in, something that competitor Amazon has been working on integrating into its retail experience with streaming Amazon Prime fashion-based shows such as “Making the Cut” and “Savage x Fenty?”

“It’s increasingly important and not just our own content, but user-generated content and influencer content,” Incandela said of Walmart’s content strategy, which has included two recent live shopping events with influencers on TikTok. She added that Maxwell “will have a strong voice in content, marketing and creative — that’s part of his role for those two brands. Not just designing clothes, but communications.”

Maxwell, who presented his spring 2021 main line collection in December and has yet to reveal plans for fall, has been working with the Walmart design teams based in New York. “From the first time I was cutting rolls of fabric in my grandmother’s dress shop, it’s always been a chance to learn. I don’t believe clothes are just clothes, they allow you to see the world in a different way and express yourself in a different way. To bring that to more people is the journey I’ve been on, and bringing my life in New York and my life in Texas together feels great,” he said.

Store appearances are definitely in the cards, he said.

“I hope to do as many things face-to-face as I can, when it’s safe to do so, because my job as a designer is to be of service, to bring high-quality, beautiful design to everyone. And you can’t get there without understanding their lives, and what purpose they need a fashion piece to fulfill.”

Naturally, some of what he does will find its way to Walmart. His spring collection, in particular, featured several more casual pieces, like twist-waistband sweatpants and a sweatshirt with a train, that one could see translating easily to lower price points.

To mark the announcement of the partnership, Walmart is rolling out a line of face masks designed by Maxwell available online, and donating $100,000 to DonorsChoose.org, a charity he chose because of its dedication to helping public school teachers get materials they need for students to learn. “My sister is an educator, so it’s one thing I’m passionate about,” the designer said.

On plans for a future season of “Project Runway,” he was mum. “I love doing it, and my connection with the show has only strengthened my ability to talk to people who want to go out and start their own collections,” said Maxwell. “That will be the most inspiring thing for me if someone comes into Walmart and sees design there that inspires them to want to go out and do this, too.”

Best Supplements You May Need Now, According to Experts

When it comes to eating right, it's easy to get distracted by complex eating plans. But you also need to ensure the bases are covered. You need—to quote mom—to get your vitamins.Researchers found that many adults aren't getting adequate levels of Vitamins A, C and D, in a recent study at the University of Illinois. This doesn't mean you should start popping multivitamins and supplements as insurance (especially because recent studies indicate that they're largely ineffective)—in fact, it's best to get our nutrients from whole foods.Here are some of the most common vitamins we don't get enough of, along with the foods that can replenish your natural stores. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these 19 Ways You're Ruining Your Body, Say Health Experts. 1 Vitamin D There's been a lot of talk about vitamin D deficiency recently, and it's worth repeating. Up to 70% of us aren't getting enough. The sunshine vitamin—so named because the sun produces D upon skin contact—is essential for healthy bones and teeth, and emerging evidence links it to a lower risk of some cancers. "The most common deficiency that I see in my practice is vitamin D," says Gina Consalvo, a registered dietitian who practices in Pennsylvania. "Our body does make some D when exposed to sunlight, but usually not enough to meet our body's needs," she adds.How to get it: Consalvo recommends whole eggs, fish oil and fish such as herring, halibut, salmon, mackerel, or tuna. Fortified foods like milk, breakfast cereal and yogurt are also rich in D.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 2 Vitamin B12 Essential for the production of red blood cells, nerves and DNA, B12 also plays a crucial role in the production of energy. It's found in whole food sources like meat, eggs and fortified milk. But plants don't make B12 if you're following a vegetarian or vegan diet, unless you're a lacto-ovo vegetarian, you might not be getting enough.How to get it: Beef (always go for grass-fed), chicken, seafood, dairy products and eggs. According to the USDA, the foods with the highest levels of B12 are beef, clams and lamb. 3 Vitamin A Poor vitamin A—despite its place at the top of the alphabetical heap, it's underappreciated. But you definitely want to ensure you're stocked up: It's essential for proper immune system function, tissue growth and repair and bone strength.How to get it: According to the USDA, foods in the top-10 highest sources of A are beef, veal, sweet potatoes and carrots. The CDC's Diet and Nutrition Report adds that fish-liver oils, liver, egg yolks, butter and cream are known for their higher content of vitamin A.RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Vitamin C Up to 15% of us aren't getting adequate C, and that number's on the rise compared to previous decades, according to the CDC's National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. It may not prevent colds, but C is a powerful antioxidant and is essential for healthy skin tendons and blood vessels. In a University of Arizona study published in the journal Nutrition&Metabolism, researchers found that vitamin C levels impacted fat oxidation during exercise, and cited a survey that showed levels of C have a direct relationship to body fat and waist size. (But don't use that as an excuse to go C-crazy: megadoses aren't effective and may be toxic.)How to get it: Oranges are considered the gold standard, but many more foods are richer in the vitamin: Red peppers have almost four times the C of an orange! Also good sources: Chiles, broccoli, brussels sprouts and strawberries. Vitamin C also makes your skin tighter and look younger.RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers. 5 Potassium Only 4.7% of Americans consume adequate potassium, University of Illinois researchers found. You best get to it as the mineral is crucial in maintaining healthy heart and kidney function. The nutrient also helps flatten your belly in two ways: you recover after a workout, and it helps the body flush out water and sodium, reducing belly bloat.How to get it: Add bananas, avocados, nuts and leafy green vegetables to your grocery list. According to the USDA, the food highest in potassium is molasses, if that's your jam. And to get through life at your healthiest, Don't Take This Supplement, Which Can Raise Your Cancer Risk.

Best Supplements You May Need Now, According to Experts

When it comes to eating right, it's easy to get distracted by complex eating plans. But you also need to ensure the bases are covered. You need—to quote mom—to get your vitamins.Researchers found that many adults aren't getting adequate levels of Vitamins A, C and D, in a recent study at the University of Illinois. This doesn't mean you should start popping multivitamins and supplements as insurance (especially because recent studies indicate that they're largely ineffective)—in fact, it's best to get our nutrients from whole foods.Here are some of the most common vitamins we don't get enough of, along with the foods that can replenish your natural stores. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these 19 Ways You're Ruining Your Body, Say Health Experts. 1 Vitamin D There's been a lot of talk about vitamin D deficiency recently, and it's worth repeating. Up to 70% of us aren't getting enough. The sunshine vitamin—so named because the sun produces D upon skin contact—is essential for healthy bones and teeth, and emerging evidence links it to a lower risk of some cancers. "The most common deficiency that I see in my practice is vitamin D," says Gina Consalvo, a registered dietitian who practices in Pennsylvania. "Our body does make some D when exposed to sunlight, but usually not enough to meet our body's needs," she adds.How to get it: Consalvo recommends whole eggs, fish oil and fish such as herring, halibut, salmon, mackerel, or tuna. Fortified foods like milk, breakfast cereal and yogurt are also rich in D.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 2 Vitamin B12 Essential for the production of red blood cells, nerves and DNA, B12 also plays a crucial role in the production of energy. It's found in whole food sources like meat, eggs and fortified milk. But plants don't make B12 if you're following a vegetarian or vegan diet, unless you're a lacto-ovo vegetarian, you might not be getting enough.How to get it: Beef (always go for grass-fed), chicken, seafood, dairy products and eggs. According to the USDA, the foods with the highest levels of B12 are beef, clams and lamb. 3 Vitamin A Poor vitamin A—despite its place at the top of the alphabetical heap, it's underappreciated. But you definitely want to ensure you're stocked up: It's essential for proper immune system function, tissue growth and repair and bone strength.How to get it: According to the USDA, foods in the top-10 highest sources of A are beef, veal, sweet potatoes and carrots. The CDC's Diet and Nutrition Report adds that fish-liver oils, liver, egg yolks, butter and cream are known for their higher content of vitamin A.RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Vitamin C Up to 15% of us aren't getting adequate C, and that number's on the rise compared to previous decades, according to the CDC's National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. It may not prevent colds, but C is a powerful antioxidant and is essential for healthy skin tendons and blood vessels. In a University of Arizona study published in the journal Nutrition&Metabolism, researchers found that vitamin C levels impacted fat oxidation during exercise, and cited a survey that showed levels of C have a direct relationship to body fat and waist size. (But don't use that as an excuse to go C-crazy: megadoses aren't effective and may be toxic.)How to get it: Oranges are considered the gold standard, but many more foods are richer in the vitamin: Red peppers have almost four times the C of an orange! Also good sources: Chiles, broccoli, brussels sprouts and strawberries. Vitamin C also makes your skin tighter and look younger.RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers. 5 Potassium Only 4.7% of Americans consume adequate potassium, University of Illinois researchers found. You best get to it as the mineral is crucial in maintaining healthy heart and kidney function. The nutrient also helps flatten your belly in two ways: you recover after a workout, and it helps the body flush out water and sodium, reducing belly bloat.How to get it: Add bananas, avocados, nuts and leafy green vegetables to your grocery list. According to the USDA, the food highest in potassium is molasses, if that's your jam. And to get through life at your healthiest, Don't Take This Supplement, Which Can Raise Your Cancer Risk.

This Plant-Based Fast Food Chain Is About To Double Its Locations

If you're trying to be conscious of the ways your patterns of consumption affect the planet (and your health), and you dig a good drive-thru, good news: A dynamic, plant-based fast-food franchise is expanding, as its key new investor says the world should watch for more like this to come.PRNewswire published this in recent days: California's Plant Power Fast Food hast just completed its $7.5 million Series A capital. With a name that suggests revolution, Plant Power Fast Food calls itself the home of "100% plant-based burgers, fries and shakes." They currently have seven locations in operation throughout California with an eighth in the works at the University of California San Diego.RELATED: Costco Foods You Should Always Avoid, According to NutritionistsNow, the chain says, they'll use this newly secured capital to "to continue to execute its expansion plans with a focus on new corporate unit development," according to their announcement. That's set to include eight new store openings in such cities as Sacramento and Hollywood, and what appears to be its first inter-state opening in Las Vegas. Said Lee Piccoli, CEO of the investment company Fusion Ventures: "Plant Power Fast Food has built something unique and scalable, and the brand has captured the hearts of aspirational consumers whose needs are evolving."This is an exciting development in the plant-based movement, as Plant Power Fast Food boasts a truly indulgent menu. Apart from their salads that feature superfood ingredients (which seem tantalizing in their own rite), the chain offers an extensive menu of burgers inspired by fast-food classics (the double-decker, sesame seed-topped "Big Zac," named after co-founder Zach Vouga, is a clear plant play on the Big Mac at McDonald's). They also offer vegan chicken selections, all-natural fries ("Just potatoes, oil, and salt," says their site), dairy-free "shakes," and novelty items such as a kombucha float.As our eating evolves, it's fun to see brands that are pushing the bounds of what's possible with plant-based options (like Plant Power's "Rambler Burger" topped with American "cheese" and onion rings).

15 Weight Loss Tips That Are Evidence Based, Say Experts

Fad diets come and go, but there are a few tried and true methods to losing weight that actually work—and don't involve unhealthy habits like not eating enough or working out too much. Adrienne Youdim, MD, FACP, an internist who specializes in medical weight loss and nutrition and author of the #1 Amazon bestseller Hungry for More: Stories and Science to Inspire Weight Loss from the Inside Out, offers 15 evidence-based weight loss tips to Eat This, Not That! that can help you achieve your weight loss goals the right way. 1 Get Enough Sleep Sleep is crucial for weight loss, Dr. Youdim explains. "Sleep deprivation has been shown to increase hunger hormones as well as cravings for highly palatable (i.e. high fat, high sugar) foods," she says. She suggests shooting for 7-8 hours of sleep per night. 2 Reduce Alcohol Intake Alcohol is a "double whammy" in terms of weight gain. "Alcohol is not only empty calories but also affects leptin —a hormone that signals fullness to the brain, and also has negative effects on sleep quantity and quality," she says. 3 Eat Real Food Studies show that processed versions of whole foods don't suppress hunger hormones as well as the real deal, Dr. Youdim reveals. "For example, processed chicken (like the kind you get in frozen meals or fast food patties), will suppress hunger hormones less than a real piece of chicken breast."RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Eat More Protein Amp up protein intake if you want to lose weight. "Higher protein intake helps preserve muscle mass (and therefore your metabolism) while losing weight so that you lose fat mass not muscle," says Dr. Youdim. She recommends 1-1.2 grams per kg body weight. 5 Start Your Day with Protein Dr. Youdim suggests eating a protein packed breakfast. "There is a lot of controversy around 'to breakfast or not,' but studies show that a high-protein breakfast (ie 20 grams) will suppress hunger hormones all day," she reveals. 6 Practice Self-Compassion Having a good attitude and practicing self love is key to reaching your goals. "Often we bully ourselves into losing weight. This leads to sabotage, while self-compassion has been shown to be more effective in habit change," Dr. Youdim says. 7 Manage Your Stress Finding ways to de-stress can be key to losing weight. "Stress literally hijacks our hunger hormones, tricking us to feeling hungry when we are not," Dr. Youdim explains. She suggests managing stress with exercise, journaling, and mindfulness—not food.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 8 Practice Mindful Meditation Getting your zen on can be helpful on your weight loss journey. Practicing mindful meditation "has been shown to facilitate habit change." 9 Reframe Your Mindset A positive mindset around and your habits is associated with greater weight loss and has metabolic benefits as well, according to Dr. Youdin. "In one study of hotel staff, those who were told that their labor was a form of exercise lost visceral fat and reduced blood pressure as compared to those who did not receive this guidance," she says. 10 Start Strength Training Building muscle will help mitigate the natural loss of muscle that occurs with aging, says Dr. Youdin. "More muscle means better metabolism and equals more calories burned." 11 Think Abundance, Not Restriction Dr. Youdin maintains that restrictive mindsets around food backfire and can lead to binging. "Reframe restriction to a mindset of abundance," she suggests. "Eat so much of what serves you so you have less room for what does not. No one gained weight from too much chicken." 12 Track Your Mood Pay attention to your mental state before you reach for food. "We eat for so many reasons other than hunger, like sadness, frustration, anxiety, and boredom. Often, we are unaware of the trigger," Dr. Youdin points out. "Notice your patterns/triggers and find alternatives to food such as sunshine, nature, and heartfelt connection."RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science 13 Get a Pet If you live alone, Dr. Youdin suggests getting a pet. "Loneliness, whether due to social distancing or relationship disputes caused by the endless political drama and current events, has affected everyone this year," she says. "Connection with animals is a dopamine booster and an antidote to the dopamine we chase after with chocolate." 14 Caffeinate Consuming caffeine can help you lose weight. "This has appetite suppressant effects and can rev up metabolism," she reveals. "Just be careful but not to over-do it!" 15 Manage Dietary Setbacks with Kindness "Those who manage dietary set-backs or weight regain with kindness were more likely to get back to their routines as compared to people who catastrophize weight gain," Dr. Youdin reveals. "The latter group were less likely to resume healthy eating patterns and physical activity." And now that you've got a great foundation, don't miss these additional 19 Weight Loss Foods That Really Work, Say Experts.

'Jeopardy!' guest host Mayim Bialik on the ɽream job,' biggest challenge, Alex Trebek's legacy

Walmart and Brandon Maxwell Ink Fashion Deal

The New York designer and “Project Runway” judge, who hails from Longview, Texas, has been named the first creative director for Walmart Inc.’s exclusive fashion brands Free Assembly and Scoop, where he will be responsible for designing seasonal collections for men, women and children, as well as accessories. He will also be involved in brand marketing initiatives and campaigns.

More from WWD

Free Assembly is comprised of elevated everyday essentials and is stocked in 500 Walmart doors. Scoop is more trend-driven, building on the legacy of the late New York boutique of the same name, and stocked in 250 doors. Maxwell’s guidance on the collections will begin to be seen for holiday his first fully designed collections will make their debuts for spring 2022.

“When I started my brand, I wanted to make things that help people feel their best and do that for everyone,” said Maxwell, who came to design through styling, most notably for Lady Gaga, and launched his namesake collection in 2015. “This partnership allows me to make beautiful designs accessible for all and I feel really proud and excited to do that.”

Like most Southerners, Maxwell has a long history with the Bentonville, Ark.-born retailer.

“Growing up, my friends and I would go to Walmart a lot. And I still go to Walmart several times a week,” he said via Zoom from his hometown, where he was visiting family. “So I feel like I know the customer quite well, the customer is my friends and family, the customer is me.”

The news comes just weeks after the retail giant promoted Denise Incandela from executive vice president of the women’s group to its new head of apparel, and tapping Maxwell is a hint at where she plans to take Walmart as it drives deeper into fashion.

“Everything is on the table,” said Incadela, who came to Walmart in 2017 with executive experience at Aldo Shoes, Ralph Lauren and Saks Fifth Avenue.

“I’m thinking about what the position of Walmart apparel should be going forward and how we continue to evolve and build on what has traditionally been a basics business. Brandon is emblematic of that,” she said, explaining that when they met in November 2019, she was not initially looking to hire a creative director. “I loved his vision and how passionate he was about giving the Walmart customer a more luxury shopping experience.…I love what he’s done with both lines. I love his perspective on color and print and he styles with a feminine touch.”

Over the past few years, the retailer has been polishing its fashion image by adding 1,000 brands to its offerings, including Levi’s, Champion, Free People, Jordache, Lee, Reebok, Bonobos and Eloqui, as well as private lines Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara and Free Assembly. Walmart has said that three of its apparel lines are $2 billion brands.

“Brandon is not someone you might have thought we’d partner with because of his luxury background, but our goal is to establish ourselves as a fashion destination, get a bigger percentage of a woman’s closet, and attract new customers. There are many ways we will do that and designer collaborations could be part of it,” she continued, acknowledging a strategy that’s been successful for competitor Target, as well as countless other brands at the high and low end of the market.

In her new role as EVP of apparel and private brands, Incandela oversees all apparel offerings online and in stores.

“We are also investing in the in-store experience for Free Assembly, new mannequins, fixtures and hangers, so it’s a full 360,” she said.

How will content fit in, something that competitor Amazon has been working on integrating into its retail experience with streaming Amazon Prime fashion-based shows such as “Making the Cut” and “Savage x Fenty?”

“It’s increasingly important and not just our own content, but user-generated content and influencer content,” Incandela said of Walmart’s content strategy, which has included two recent live shopping events with influencers on TikTok. She added that Maxwell “will have a strong voice in content, marketing and creative — that’s part of his role for those two brands. Not just designing clothes, but communications.”

Maxwell, who presented his spring 2021 main line collection in December and has yet to reveal plans for fall, has been working with the Walmart design teams based in New York. “From the first time I was cutting rolls of fabric in my grandmother’s dress shop, it’s always been a chance to learn. I don’t believe clothes are just clothes, they allow you to see the world in a different way and express yourself in a different way. To bring that to more people is the journey I’ve been on, and bringing my life in New York and my life in Texas together feels great,” he said.

Store appearances are definitely in the cards, he said.

“I hope to do as many things face-to-face as I can, when it’s safe to do so, because my job as a designer is to be of service, to bring high-quality, beautiful design to everyone. And you can’t get there without understanding their lives, and what purpose they need a fashion piece to fulfill.”

Naturally, some of what he does will find its way to Walmart. His spring collection, in particular, featured several more casual pieces, like twist-waistband sweatpants and a sweatshirt with a train, that one could see translating easily to lower price points.

To mark the announcement of the partnership, Walmart is rolling out a line of face masks designed by Maxwell available online, and donating $100,000 to DonorsChoose.org, a charity he chose because of its dedication to helping public school teachers get materials they need for students to learn. “My sister is an educator, so it’s one thing I’m passionate about,” the designer said.

On plans for a future season of “Project Runway,” he was mum. “I love doing it, and my connection with the show has only strengthened my ability to talk to people who want to go out and start their own collections,” said Maxwell. “That will be the most inspiring thing for me if someone comes into Walmart and sees design there that inspires them to want to go out and do this, too.”

Walmart and Brandon Maxwell Ink Fashion Deal

The New York designer and “Project Runway” judge, who hails from Longview, Texas, has been named the first creative director for Walmart Inc.’s exclusive fashion brands Free Assembly and Scoop, where he will be responsible for designing seasonal collections for men, women and children, as well as accessories. He will also be involved in brand marketing initiatives and campaigns.

More from WWD

Free Assembly is comprised of elevated everyday essentials and is stocked in 500 Walmart doors. Scoop is more trend-driven, building on the legacy of the late New York boutique of the same name, and stocked in 250 doors. Maxwell’s guidance on the collections will begin to be seen for holiday his first fully designed collections will make their debuts for spring 2022.

“When I started my brand, I wanted to make things that help people feel their best and do that for everyone,” said Maxwell, who came to design through styling, most notably for Lady Gaga, and launched his namesake collection in 2015. “This partnership allows me to make beautiful designs accessible for all and I feel really proud and excited to do that.”

Like most Southerners, Maxwell has a long history with the Bentonville, Ark.-born retailer.

“Growing up, my friends and I would go to Walmart a lot. And I still go to Walmart several times a week,” he said via Zoom from his hometown, where he was visiting family. “So I feel like I know the customer quite well, the customer is my friends and family, the customer is me.”

The news comes just weeks after the retail giant promoted Denise Incandela from executive vice president of the women’s group to its new head of apparel, and tapping Maxwell is a hint at where she plans to take Walmart as it drives deeper into fashion.

“Everything is on the table,” said Incadela, who came to Walmart in 2017 with executive experience at Aldo Shoes, Ralph Lauren and Saks Fifth Avenue.

“I’m thinking about what the position of Walmart apparel should be going forward and how we continue to evolve and build on what has traditionally been a basics business. Brandon is emblematic of that,” she said, explaining that when they met in November 2019, she was not initially looking to hire a creative director. “I loved his vision and how passionate he was about giving the Walmart customer a more luxury shopping experience.…I love what he’s done with both lines. I love his perspective on color and print and he styles with a feminine touch.”

Over the past few years, the retailer has been polishing its fashion image by adding 1,000 brands to its offerings, including Levi’s, Champion, Free People, Jordache, Lee, Reebok, Bonobos and Eloqui, as well as private lines Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara and Free Assembly. Walmart has said that three of its apparel lines are $2 billion brands.

“Brandon is not someone you might have thought we’d partner with because of his luxury background, but our goal is to establish ourselves as a fashion destination, get a bigger percentage of a woman’s closet, and attract new customers. There are many ways we will do that and designer collaborations could be part of it,” she continued, acknowledging a strategy that’s been successful for competitor Target, as well as countless other brands at the high and low end of the market.

In her new role as EVP of apparel and private brands, Incandela oversees all apparel offerings online and in stores.

“We are also investing in the in-store experience for Free Assembly, new mannequins, fixtures and hangers, so it’s a full 360,” she said.

How will content fit in, something that competitor Amazon has been working on integrating into its retail experience with streaming Amazon Prime fashion-based shows such as “Making the Cut” and “Savage x Fenty?”

“It’s increasingly important and not just our own content, but user-generated content and influencer content,” Incandela said of Walmart’s content strategy, which has included two recent live shopping events with influencers on TikTok. She added that Maxwell “will have a strong voice in content, marketing and creative — that’s part of his role for those two brands. Not just designing clothes, but communications.”

Maxwell, who presented his spring 2021 main line collection in December and has yet to reveal plans for fall, has been working with the Walmart design teams based in New York. “From the first time I was cutting rolls of fabric in my grandmother’s dress shop, it’s always been a chance to learn. I don’t believe clothes are just clothes, they allow you to see the world in a different way and express yourself in a different way. To bring that to more people is the journey I’ve been on, and bringing my life in New York and my life in Texas together feels great,” he said.

Store appearances are definitely in the cards, he said.

“I hope to do as many things face-to-face as I can, when it’s safe to do so, because my job as a designer is to be of service, to bring high-quality, beautiful design to everyone. And you can’t get there without understanding their lives, and what purpose they need a fashion piece to fulfill.”

Naturally, some of what he does will find its way to Walmart. His spring collection, in particular, featured several more casual pieces, like twist-waistband sweatpants and a sweatshirt with a train, that one could see translating easily to lower price points.

To mark the announcement of the partnership, Walmart is rolling out a line of face masks designed by Maxwell available online, and donating $100,000 to DonorsChoose.org, a charity he chose because of its dedication to helping public school teachers get materials they need for students to learn. “My sister is an educator, so it’s one thing I’m passionate about,” the designer said.

On plans for a future season of “Project Runway,” he was mum. “I love doing it, and my connection with the show has only strengthened my ability to talk to people who want to go out and start their own collections,” said Maxwell. “That will be the most inspiring thing for me if someone comes into Walmart and sees design there that inspires them to want to go out and do this, too.”

Best Supplements You May Need Now, According to Experts

When it comes to eating right, it's easy to get distracted by complex eating plans. But you also need to ensure the bases are covered. You need—to quote mom—to get your vitamins.Researchers found that many adults aren't getting adequate levels of Vitamins A, C and D, in a recent study at the University of Illinois. This doesn't mean you should start popping multivitamins and supplements as insurance (especially because recent studies indicate that they're largely ineffective)—in fact, it's best to get our nutrients from whole foods.Here are some of the most common vitamins we don't get enough of, along with the foods that can replenish your natural stores. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these 19 Ways You're Ruining Your Body, Say Health Experts. 1 Vitamin D There's been a lot of talk about vitamin D deficiency recently, and it's worth repeating. Up to 70% of us aren't getting enough. The sunshine vitamin—so named because the sun produces D upon skin contact—is essential for healthy bones and teeth, and emerging evidence links it to a lower risk of some cancers. "The most common deficiency that I see in my practice is vitamin D," says Gina Consalvo, a registered dietitian who practices in Pennsylvania. "Our body does make some D when exposed to sunlight, but usually not enough to meet our body's needs," she adds.How to get it: Consalvo recommends whole eggs, fish oil and fish such as herring, halibut, salmon, mackerel, or tuna. Fortified foods like milk, breakfast cereal and yogurt are also rich in D.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 2 Vitamin B12 Essential for the production of red blood cells, nerves and DNA, B12 also plays a crucial role in the production of energy. It's found in whole food sources like meat, eggs and fortified milk. But plants don't make B12 if you're following a vegetarian or vegan diet, unless you're a lacto-ovo vegetarian, you might not be getting enough.How to get it: Beef (always go for grass-fed), chicken, seafood, dairy products and eggs. According to the USDA, the foods with the highest levels of B12 are beef, clams and lamb. 3 Vitamin A Poor vitamin A—despite its place at the top of the alphabetical heap, it's underappreciated. But you definitely want to ensure you're stocked up: It's essential for proper immune system function, tissue growth and repair and bone strength.How to get it: According to the USDA, foods in the top-10 highest sources of A are beef, veal, sweet potatoes and carrots. The CDC's Diet and Nutrition Report adds that fish-liver oils, liver, egg yolks, butter and cream are known for their higher content of vitamin A.RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Vitamin C Up to 15% of us aren't getting adequate C, and that number's on the rise compared to previous decades, according to the CDC's National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. It may not prevent colds, but C is a powerful antioxidant and is essential for healthy skin tendons and blood vessels. In a University of Arizona study published in the journal Nutrition&Metabolism, researchers found that vitamin C levels impacted fat oxidation during exercise, and cited a survey that showed levels of C have a direct relationship to body fat and waist size. (But don't use that as an excuse to go C-crazy: megadoses aren't effective and may be toxic.)How to get it: Oranges are considered the gold standard, but many more foods are richer in the vitamin: Red peppers have almost four times the C of an orange! Also good sources: Chiles, broccoli, brussels sprouts and strawberries. Vitamin C also makes your skin tighter and look younger.RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers. 5 Potassium Only 4.7% of Americans consume adequate potassium, University of Illinois researchers found. You best get to it as the mineral is crucial in maintaining healthy heart and kidney function. The nutrient also helps flatten your belly in two ways: you recover after a workout, and it helps the body flush out water and sodium, reducing belly bloat.How to get it: Add bananas, avocados, nuts and leafy green vegetables to your grocery list. According to the USDA, the food highest in potassium is molasses, if that's your jam. And to get through life at your healthiest, Don't Take This Supplement, Which Can Raise Your Cancer Risk.

This Plant-Based Fast Food Chain Is About To Double Its Locations

If you're trying to be conscious of the ways your patterns of consumption affect the planet (and your health), and you dig a good drive-thru, good news: A dynamic, plant-based fast-food franchise is expanding, as its key new investor says the world should watch for more like this to come.PRNewswire published this in recent days: California's Plant Power Fast Food hast just completed its $7.5 million Series A capital. With a name that suggests revolution, Plant Power Fast Food calls itself the home of "100% plant-based burgers, fries and shakes." They currently have seven locations in operation throughout California with an eighth in the works at the University of California San Diego.RELATED: Costco Foods You Should Always Avoid, According to NutritionistsNow, the chain says, they'll use this newly secured capital to "to continue to execute its expansion plans with a focus on new corporate unit development," according to their announcement. That's set to include eight new store openings in such cities as Sacramento and Hollywood, and what appears to be its first inter-state opening in Las Vegas. Said Lee Piccoli, CEO of the investment company Fusion Ventures: "Plant Power Fast Food has built something unique and scalable, and the brand has captured the hearts of aspirational consumers whose needs are evolving."This is an exciting development in the plant-based movement, as Plant Power Fast Food boasts a truly indulgent menu. Apart from their salads that feature superfood ingredients (which seem tantalizing in their own rite), the chain offers an extensive menu of burgers inspired by fast-food classics (the double-decker, sesame seed-topped "Big Zac," named after co-founder Zach Vouga, is a clear plant play on the Big Mac at McDonald's). They also offer vegan chicken selections, all-natural fries ("Just potatoes, oil, and salt," says their site), dairy-free "shakes," and novelty items such as a kombucha float.As our eating evolves, it's fun to see brands that are pushing the bounds of what's possible with plant-based options (like Plant Power's "Rambler Burger" topped with American "cheese" and onion rings).

15 Weight Loss Tips That Are Evidence Based, Say Experts

Fad diets come and go, but there are a few tried and true methods to losing weight that actually work—and don't involve unhealthy habits like not eating enough or working out too much. Adrienne Youdim, MD, FACP, an internist who specializes in medical weight loss and nutrition and author of the #1 Amazon bestseller Hungry for More: Stories and Science to Inspire Weight Loss from the Inside Out, offers 15 evidence-based weight loss tips to Eat This, Not That! that can help you achieve your weight loss goals the right way. 1 Get Enough Sleep Sleep is crucial for weight loss, Dr. Youdim explains. "Sleep deprivation has been shown to increase hunger hormones as well as cravings for highly palatable (i.e. high fat, high sugar) foods," she says. She suggests shooting for 7-8 hours of sleep per night. 2 Reduce Alcohol Intake Alcohol is a "double whammy" in terms of weight gain. "Alcohol is not only empty calories but also affects leptin —a hormone that signals fullness to the brain, and also has negative effects on sleep quantity and quality," she says. 3 Eat Real Food Studies show that processed versions of whole foods don't suppress hunger hormones as well as the real deal, Dr. Youdim reveals. "For example, processed chicken (like the kind you get in frozen meals or fast food patties), will suppress hunger hormones less than a real piece of chicken breast."RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Eat More Protein Amp up protein intake if you want to lose weight. "Higher protein intake helps preserve muscle mass (and therefore your metabolism) while losing weight so that you lose fat mass not muscle," says Dr. Youdim. She recommends 1-1.2 grams per kg body weight. 5 Start Your Day with Protein Dr. Youdim suggests eating a protein packed breakfast. "There is a lot of controversy around 'to breakfast or not,' but studies show that a high-protein breakfast (ie 20 grams) will suppress hunger hormones all day," she reveals. 6 Practice Self-Compassion Having a good attitude and practicing self love is key to reaching your goals. "Often we bully ourselves into losing weight. This leads to sabotage, while self-compassion has been shown to be more effective in habit change," Dr. Youdim says. 7 Manage Your Stress Finding ways to de-stress can be key to losing weight. "Stress literally hijacks our hunger hormones, tricking us to feeling hungry when we are not," Dr. Youdim explains. She suggests managing stress with exercise, journaling, and mindfulness—not food.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 8 Practice Mindful Meditation Getting your zen on can be helpful on your weight loss journey. Practicing mindful meditation "has been shown to facilitate habit change." 9 Reframe Your Mindset A positive mindset around and your habits is associated with greater weight loss and has metabolic benefits as well, according to Dr. Youdin. "In one study of hotel staff, those who were told that their labor was a form of exercise lost visceral fat and reduced blood pressure as compared to those who did not receive this guidance," she says. 10 Start Strength Training Building muscle will help mitigate the natural loss of muscle that occurs with aging, says Dr. Youdin. "More muscle means better metabolism and equals more calories burned." 11 Think Abundance, Not Restriction Dr. Youdin maintains that restrictive mindsets around food backfire and can lead to binging. "Reframe restriction to a mindset of abundance," she suggests. "Eat so much of what serves you so you have less room for what does not. No one gained weight from too much chicken." 12 Track Your Mood Pay attention to your mental state before you reach for food. "We eat for so many reasons other than hunger, like sadness, frustration, anxiety, and boredom. Often, we are unaware of the trigger," Dr. Youdin points out. "Notice your patterns/triggers and find alternatives to food such as sunshine, nature, and heartfelt connection."RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science 13 Get a Pet If you live alone, Dr. Youdin suggests getting a pet. "Loneliness, whether due to social distancing or relationship disputes caused by the endless political drama and current events, has affected everyone this year," she says. "Connection with animals is a dopamine booster and an antidote to the dopamine we chase after with chocolate." 14 Caffeinate Consuming caffeine can help you lose weight. "This has appetite suppressant effects and can rev up metabolism," she reveals. "Just be careful but not to over-do it!" 15 Manage Dietary Setbacks with Kindness "Those who manage dietary set-backs or weight regain with kindness were more likely to get back to their routines as compared to people who catastrophize weight gain," Dr. Youdin reveals. "The latter group were less likely to resume healthy eating patterns and physical activity." And now that you've got a great foundation, don't miss these additional 19 Weight Loss Foods That Really Work, Say Experts.

The news comes just weeks after the retail giant promoted Denise Incandela from executive vice president of the women’s group to its new head of apparel, and tapping Maxwell is a hint at where she plans to take Walmart as it drives deeper into fashion.

15 Weight Loss Tips That Are Evidence Based, Say Experts

Fad diets come and go, but there are a few tried and true methods to losing weight that actually work—and don't involve unhealthy habits like not eating enough or working out too much. Adrienne Youdim, MD, FACP, an internist who specializes in medical weight loss and nutrition and author of the #1 Amazon bestseller Hungry for More: Stories and Science to Inspire Weight Loss from the Inside Out, offers 15 evidence-based weight loss tips to Eat This, Not That! that can help you achieve your weight loss goals the right way. 1 Get Enough Sleep Sleep is crucial for weight loss, Dr. Youdim explains. "Sleep deprivation has been shown to increase hunger hormones as well as cravings for highly palatable (i.e. high fat, high sugar) foods," she says. She suggests shooting for 7-8 hours of sleep per night. 2 Reduce Alcohol Intake Alcohol is a "double whammy" in terms of weight gain. "Alcohol is not only empty calories but also affects leptin —a hormone that signals fullness to the brain, and also has negative effects on sleep quantity and quality," she says. 3 Eat Real Food Studies show that processed versions of whole foods don't suppress hunger hormones as well as the real deal, Dr. Youdim reveals. "For example, processed chicken (like the kind you get in frozen meals or fast food patties), will suppress hunger hormones less than a real piece of chicken breast."RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Eat More Protein Amp up protein intake if you want to lose weight. "Higher protein intake helps preserve muscle mass (and therefore your metabolism) while losing weight so that you lose fat mass not muscle," says Dr. Youdim. She recommends 1-1.2 grams per kg body weight. 5 Start Your Day with Protein Dr. Youdim suggests eating a protein packed breakfast. "There is a lot of controversy around 'to breakfast or not,' but studies show that a high-protein breakfast (ie 20 grams) will suppress hunger hormones all day," she reveals. 6 Practice Self-Compassion Having a good attitude and practicing self love is key to reaching your goals. "Often we bully ourselves into losing weight. This leads to sabotage, while self-compassion has been shown to be more effective in habit change," Dr. Youdim says. 7 Manage Your Stress Finding ways to de-stress can be key to losing weight. "Stress literally hijacks our hunger hormones, tricking us to feeling hungry when we are not," Dr. Youdim explains. She suggests managing stress with exercise, journaling, and mindfulness—not food.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 8 Practice Mindful Meditation Getting your zen on can be helpful on your weight loss journey. Practicing mindful meditation "has been shown to facilitate habit change." 9 Reframe Your Mindset A positive mindset around and your habits is associated with greater weight loss and has metabolic benefits as well, according to Dr. Youdin. "In one study of hotel staff, those who were told that their labor was a form of exercise lost visceral fat and reduced blood pressure as compared to those who did not receive this guidance," she says. 10 Start Strength Training Building muscle will help mitigate the natural loss of muscle that occurs with aging, says Dr. Youdin. "More muscle means better metabolism and equals more calories burned." 11 Think Abundance, Not Restriction Dr. Youdin maintains that restrictive mindsets around food backfire and can lead to binging. "Reframe restriction to a mindset of abundance," she suggests. "Eat so much of what serves you so you have less room for what does not. No one gained weight from too much chicken." 12 Track Your Mood Pay attention to your mental state before you reach for food. "We eat for so many reasons other than hunger, like sadness, frustration, anxiety, and boredom. Often, we are unaware of the trigger," Dr. Youdin points out. "Notice your patterns/triggers and find alternatives to food such as sunshine, nature, and heartfelt connection."RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science 13 Get a Pet If you live alone, Dr. Youdin suggests getting a pet. "Loneliness, whether due to social distancing or relationship disputes caused by the endless political drama and current events, has affected everyone this year," she says. "Connection with animals is a dopamine booster and an antidote to the dopamine we chase after with chocolate." 14 Caffeinate Consuming caffeine can help you lose weight. "This has appetite suppressant effects and can rev up metabolism," she reveals. "Just be careful but not to over-do it!" 15 Manage Dietary Setbacks with Kindness "Those who manage dietary set-backs or weight regain with kindness were more likely to get back to their routines as compared to people who catastrophize weight gain," Dr. Youdin reveals. "The latter group were less likely to resume healthy eating patterns and physical activity." And now that you've got a great foundation, don't miss these additional 19 Weight Loss Foods That Really Work, Say Experts.

Walmart and Brandon Maxwell Ink Fashion Deal

The New York designer and “Project Runway” judge, who hails from Longview, Texas, has been named the first creative director for Walmart Inc.’s exclusive fashion brands Free Assembly and Scoop, where he will be responsible for designing seasonal collections for men, women and children, as well as accessories. He will also be involved in brand marketing initiatives and campaigns.

More from WWD

Free Assembly is comprised of elevated everyday essentials and is stocked in 500 Walmart doors. Scoop is more trend-driven, building on the legacy of the late New York boutique of the same name, and stocked in 250 doors. Maxwell’s guidance on the collections will begin to be seen for holiday his first fully designed collections will make their debuts for spring 2022.

“When I started my brand, I wanted to make things that help people feel their best and do that for everyone,” said Maxwell, who came to design through styling, most notably for Lady Gaga, and launched his namesake collection in 2015. “This partnership allows me to make beautiful designs accessible for all and I feel really proud and excited to do that.”

Like most Southerners, Maxwell has a long history with the Bentonville, Ark.-born retailer.

“Growing up, my friends and I would go to Walmart a lot. And I still go to Walmart several times a week,” he said via Zoom from his hometown, where he was visiting family. “So I feel like I know the customer quite well, the customer is my friends and family, the customer is me.”

The news comes just weeks after the retail giant promoted Denise Incandela from executive vice president of the women’s group to its new head of apparel, and tapping Maxwell is a hint at where she plans to take Walmart as it drives deeper into fashion.

“Everything is on the table,” said Incadela, who came to Walmart in 2017 with executive experience at Aldo Shoes, Ralph Lauren and Saks Fifth Avenue.

“I’m thinking about what the position of Walmart apparel should be going forward and how we continue to evolve and build on what has traditionally been a basics business. Brandon is emblematic of that,” she said, explaining that when they met in November 2019, she was not initially looking to hire a creative director. “I loved his vision and how passionate he was about giving the Walmart customer a more luxury shopping experience.…I love what he’s done with both lines. I love his perspective on color and print and he styles with a feminine touch.”

Over the past few years, the retailer has been polishing its fashion image by adding 1,000 brands to its offerings, including Levi’s, Champion, Free People, Jordache, Lee, Reebok, Bonobos and Eloqui, as well as private lines Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara and Free Assembly. Walmart has said that three of its apparel lines are $2 billion brands.

“Brandon is not someone you might have thought we’d partner with because of his luxury background, but our goal is to establish ourselves as a fashion destination, get a bigger percentage of a woman’s closet, and attract new customers. There are many ways we will do that and designer collaborations could be part of it,” she continued, acknowledging a strategy that’s been successful for competitor Target, as well as countless other brands at the high and low end of the market.

In her new role as EVP of apparel and private brands, Incandela oversees all apparel offerings online and in stores.

“We are also investing in the in-store experience for Free Assembly, new mannequins, fixtures and hangers, so it’s a full 360,” she said.

How will content fit in, something that competitor Amazon has been working on integrating into its retail experience with streaming Amazon Prime fashion-based shows such as “Making the Cut” and “Savage x Fenty?”

“It’s increasingly important and not just our own content, but user-generated content and influencer content,” Incandela said of Walmart’s content strategy, which has included two recent live shopping events with influencers on TikTok. She added that Maxwell “will have a strong voice in content, marketing and creative — that’s part of his role for those two brands. Not just designing clothes, but communications.”

Maxwell, who presented his spring 2021 main line collection in December and has yet to reveal plans for fall, has been working with the Walmart design teams based in New York. “From the first time I was cutting rolls of fabric in my grandmother’s dress shop, it’s always been a chance to learn. I don’t believe clothes are just clothes, they allow you to see the world in a different way and express yourself in a different way. To bring that to more people is the journey I’ve been on, and bringing my life in New York and my life in Texas together feels great,” he said.

Store appearances are definitely in the cards, he said.

“I hope to do as many things face-to-face as I can, when it’s safe to do so, because my job as a designer is to be of service, to bring high-quality, beautiful design to everyone. And you can’t get there without understanding their lives, and what purpose they need a fashion piece to fulfill.”

Naturally, some of what he does will find its way to Walmart. His spring collection, in particular, featured several more casual pieces, like twist-waistband sweatpants and a sweatshirt with a train, that one could see translating easily to lower price points.

To mark the announcement of the partnership, Walmart is rolling out a line of face masks designed by Maxwell available online, and donating $100,000 to DonorsChoose.org, a charity he chose because of its dedication to helping public school teachers get materials they need for students to learn. “My sister is an educator, so it’s one thing I’m passionate about,” the designer said.

On plans for a future season of “Project Runway,” he was mum. “I love doing it, and my connection with the show has only strengthened my ability to talk to people who want to go out and start their own collections,” said Maxwell. “That will be the most inspiring thing for me if someone comes into Walmart and sees design there that inspires them to want to go out and do this, too.”

Best Supplements You May Need Now, According to Experts

When it comes to eating right, it's easy to get distracted by complex eating plans. But you also need to ensure the bases are covered. You need—to quote mom—to get your vitamins.Researchers found that many adults aren't getting adequate levels of Vitamins A, C and D, in a recent study at the University of Illinois. This doesn't mean you should start popping multivitamins and supplements as insurance (especially because recent studies indicate that they're largely ineffective)—in fact, it's best to get our nutrients from whole foods.Here are some of the most common vitamins we don't get enough of, along with the foods that can replenish your natural stores. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these 19 Ways You're Ruining Your Body, Say Health Experts. 1 Vitamin D There's been a lot of talk about vitamin D deficiency recently, and it's worth repeating. Up to 70% of us aren't getting enough. The sunshine vitamin—so named because the sun produces D upon skin contact—is essential for healthy bones and teeth, and emerging evidence links it to a lower risk of some cancers. "The most common deficiency that I see in my practice is vitamin D," says Gina Consalvo, a registered dietitian who practices in Pennsylvania. "Our body does make some D when exposed to sunlight, but usually not enough to meet our body's needs," she adds.How to get it: Consalvo recommends whole eggs, fish oil and fish such as herring, halibut, salmon, mackerel, or tuna. Fortified foods like milk, breakfast cereal and yogurt are also rich in D.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 2 Vitamin B12 Essential for the production of red blood cells, nerves and DNA, B12 also plays a crucial role in the production of energy. It's found in whole food sources like meat, eggs and fortified milk. But plants don't make B12 if you're following a vegetarian or vegan diet, unless you're a lacto-ovo vegetarian, you might not be getting enough.How to get it: Beef (always go for grass-fed), chicken, seafood, dairy products and eggs. According to the USDA, the foods with the highest levels of B12 are beef, clams and lamb. 3 Vitamin A Poor vitamin A—despite its place at the top of the alphabetical heap, it's underappreciated. But you definitely want to ensure you're stocked up: It's essential for proper immune system function, tissue growth and repair and bone strength.How to get it: According to the USDA, foods in the top-10 highest sources of A are beef, veal, sweet potatoes and carrots. The CDC's Diet and Nutrition Report adds that fish-liver oils, liver, egg yolks, butter and cream are known for their higher content of vitamin A.RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Vitamin C Up to 15% of us aren't getting adequate C, and that number's on the rise compared to previous decades, according to the CDC's National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. It may not prevent colds, but C is a powerful antioxidant and is essential for healthy skin tendons and blood vessels. In a University of Arizona study published in the journal Nutrition&Metabolism, researchers found that vitamin C levels impacted fat oxidation during exercise, and cited a survey that showed levels of C have a direct relationship to body fat and waist size. (But don't use that as an excuse to go C-crazy: megadoses aren't effective and may be toxic.)How to get it: Oranges are considered the gold standard, but many more foods are richer in the vitamin: Red peppers have almost four times the C of an orange! Also good sources: Chiles, broccoli, brussels sprouts and strawberries. Vitamin C also makes your skin tighter and look younger.RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers. 5 Potassium Only 4.7% of Americans consume adequate potassium, University of Illinois researchers found. You best get to it as the mineral is crucial in maintaining healthy heart and kidney function. The nutrient also helps flatten your belly in two ways: you recover after a workout, and it helps the body flush out water and sodium, reducing belly bloat.How to get it: Add bananas, avocados, nuts and leafy green vegetables to your grocery list. According to the USDA, the food highest in potassium is molasses, if that's your jam. And to get through life at your healthiest, Don't Take This Supplement, Which Can Raise Your Cancer Risk.

Best Supplements You May Need Now, According to Experts

When it comes to eating right, it's easy to get distracted by complex eating plans. But you also need to ensure the bases are covered. You need—to quote mom—to get your vitamins.Researchers found that many adults aren't getting adequate levels of Vitamins A, C and D, in a recent study at the University of Illinois. This doesn't mean you should start popping multivitamins and supplements as insurance (especially because recent studies indicate that they're largely ineffective)—in fact, it's best to get our nutrients from whole foods.Here are some of the most common vitamins we don't get enough of, along with the foods that can replenish your natural stores. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these 19 Ways You're Ruining Your Body, Say Health Experts. 1 Vitamin D There's been a lot of talk about vitamin D deficiency recently, and it's worth repeating. Up to 70% of us aren't getting enough. The sunshine vitamin—so named because the sun produces D upon skin contact—is essential for healthy bones and teeth, and emerging evidence links it to a lower risk of some cancers. "The most common deficiency that I see in my practice is vitamin D," says Gina Consalvo, a registered dietitian who practices in Pennsylvania. "Our body does make some D when exposed to sunlight, but usually not enough to meet our body's needs," she adds.How to get it: Consalvo recommends whole eggs, fish oil and fish such as herring, halibut, salmon, mackerel, or tuna. Fortified foods like milk, breakfast cereal and yogurt are also rich in D.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 2 Vitamin B12 Essential for the production of red blood cells, nerves and DNA, B12 also plays a crucial role in the production of energy. It's found in whole food sources like meat, eggs and fortified milk. But plants don't make B12 if you're following a vegetarian or vegan diet, unless you're a lacto-ovo vegetarian, you might not be getting enough.How to get it: Beef (always go for grass-fed), chicken, seafood, dairy products and eggs. According to the USDA, the foods with the highest levels of B12 are beef, clams and lamb. 3 Vitamin A Poor vitamin A—despite its place at the top of the alphabetical heap, it's underappreciated. But you definitely want to ensure you're stocked up: It's essential for proper immune system function, tissue growth and repair and bone strength.How to get it: According to the USDA, foods in the top-10 highest sources of A are beef, veal, sweet potatoes and carrots. The CDC's Diet and Nutrition Report adds that fish-liver oils, liver, egg yolks, butter and cream are known for their higher content of vitamin A.RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Vitamin C Up to 15% of us aren't getting adequate C, and that number's on the rise compared to previous decades, according to the CDC's National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. It may not prevent colds, but C is a powerful antioxidant and is essential for healthy skin tendons and blood vessels. In a University of Arizona study published in the journal Nutrition&Metabolism, researchers found that vitamin C levels impacted fat oxidation during exercise, and cited a survey that showed levels of C have a direct relationship to body fat and waist size. (But don't use that as an excuse to go C-crazy: megadoses aren't effective and may be toxic.)How to get it: Oranges are considered the gold standard, but many more foods are richer in the vitamin: Red peppers have almost four times the C of an orange! Also good sources: Chiles, broccoli, brussels sprouts and strawberries. Vitamin C also makes your skin tighter and look younger.RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers. 5 Potassium Only 4.7% of Americans consume adequate potassium, University of Illinois researchers found. You best get to it as the mineral is crucial in maintaining healthy heart and kidney function. The nutrient also helps flatten your belly in two ways: you recover after a workout, and it helps the body flush out water and sodium, reducing belly bloat.How to get it: Add bananas, avocados, nuts and leafy green vegetables to your grocery list. According to the USDA, the food highest in potassium is molasses, if that's your jam. And to get through life at your healthiest, Don't Take This Supplement, Which Can Raise Your Cancer Risk.

This Plant-Based Fast Food Chain Is About To Double Its Locations

If you're trying to be conscious of the ways your patterns of consumption affect the planet (and your health), and you dig a good drive-thru, good news: A dynamic, plant-based fast-food franchise is expanding, as its key new investor says the world should watch for more like this to come.PRNewswire published this in recent days: California's Plant Power Fast Food hast just completed its $7.5 million Series A capital. With a name that suggests revolution, Plant Power Fast Food calls itself the home of "100% plant-based burgers, fries and shakes." They currently have seven locations in operation throughout California with an eighth in the works at the University of California San Diego.RELATED: Costco Foods You Should Always Avoid, According to NutritionistsNow, the chain says, they'll use this newly secured capital to "to continue to execute its expansion plans with a focus on new corporate unit development," according to their announcement. That's set to include eight new store openings in such cities as Sacramento and Hollywood, and what appears to be its first inter-state opening in Las Vegas. Said Lee Piccoli, CEO of the investment company Fusion Ventures: "Plant Power Fast Food has built something unique and scalable, and the brand has captured the hearts of aspirational consumers whose needs are evolving."This is an exciting development in the plant-based movement, as Plant Power Fast Food boasts a truly indulgent menu. Apart from their salads that feature superfood ingredients (which seem tantalizing in their own rite), the chain offers an extensive menu of burgers inspired by fast-food classics (the double-decker, sesame seed-topped "Big Zac," named after co-founder Zach Vouga, is a clear plant play on the Big Mac at McDonald's). They also offer vegan chicken selections, all-natural fries ("Just potatoes, oil, and salt," says their site), dairy-free "shakes," and novelty items such as a kombucha float.As our eating evolves, it's fun to see brands that are pushing the bounds of what's possible with plant-based options (like Plant Power's "Rambler Burger" topped with American "cheese" and onion rings).

15 Weight Loss Tips That Are Evidence Based, Say Experts

Fad diets come and go, but there are a few tried and true methods to losing weight that actually work—and don't involve unhealthy habits like not eating enough or working out too much. Adrienne Youdim, MD, FACP, an internist who specializes in medical weight loss and nutrition and author of the #1 Amazon bestseller Hungry for More: Stories and Science to Inspire Weight Loss from the Inside Out, offers 15 evidence-based weight loss tips to Eat This, Not That! that can help you achieve your weight loss goals the right way. 1 Get Enough Sleep Sleep is crucial for weight loss, Dr. Youdim explains. "Sleep deprivation has been shown to increase hunger hormones as well as cravings for highly palatable (i.e. high fat, high sugar) foods," she says. She suggests shooting for 7-8 hours of sleep per night. 2 Reduce Alcohol Intake Alcohol is a "double whammy" in terms of weight gain. "Alcohol is not only empty calories but also affects leptin —a hormone that signals fullness to the brain, and also has negative effects on sleep quantity and quality," she says. 3 Eat Real Food Studies show that processed versions of whole foods don't suppress hunger hormones as well as the real deal, Dr. Youdim reveals. "For example, processed chicken (like the kind you get in frozen meals or fast food patties), will suppress hunger hormones less than a real piece of chicken breast."RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts Say 4 Eat More Protein Amp up protein intake if you want to lose weight. "Higher protein intake helps preserve muscle mass (and therefore your metabolism) while losing weight so that you lose fat mass not muscle," says Dr. Youdim. She recommends 1-1.2 grams per kg body weight. 5 Start Your Day with Protein Dr. Youdim suggests eating a protein packed breakfast. "There is a lot of controversy around 'to breakfast or not,' but studies show that a high-protein breakfast (ie 20 grams) will suppress hunger hormones all day," she reveals. 6 Practice Self-Compassion Having a good attitude and practicing self love is key to reaching your goals. "Often we bully ourselves into losing weight. This leads to sabotage, while self-compassion has been shown to be more effective in habit change," Dr. Youdim says. 7 Manage Your Stress Finding ways to de-stress can be key to losing weight. "Stress literally hijacks our hunger hormones, tricking us to feeling hungry when we are not," Dr. Youdim explains. She suggests managing stress with exercise, journaling, and mindfulness—not food.RELATED: I'm A Doctor And Warn You Never Take This Supplement 8 Practice Mindful Meditation Getting your zen on can be helpful on your weight loss journey. Practicing mindful meditation "has been shown to facilitate habit change." 9 Reframe Your Mindset A positive mindset around and your habits is associated with greater weight loss and has metabolic benefits as well, according to Dr. Youdin. "In one study of hotel staff, those who were told that their labor was a form of exercise lost visceral fat and reduced blood pressure as compared to those who did not receive this guidance," she says. 10 Start Strength Training Building muscle will help mitigate the natural loss of muscle that occurs with aging, says Dr. Youdin. "More muscle means better metabolism and equals more calories burned." 11 Think Abundance, Not Restriction Dr. Youdin maintains that restrictive mindsets around food backfire and can lead to binging. "Reframe restriction to a mindset of abundance," she suggests. "Eat so much of what serves you so you have less room for what does not. No one gained weight from too much chicken." 12 Track Your Mood Pay attention to your mental state before you reach for food. "We eat for so many reasons other than hunger, like sadness, frustration, anxiety, and boredom. Often, we are unaware of the trigger," Dr. Youdin points out. "Notice your patterns/triggers and find alternatives to food such as sunshine, nature, and heartfelt connection."RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science 13 Get a Pet If you live alone, Dr. Youdin suggests getting a pet. "Loneliness, whether due to social distancing or relationship disputes caused by the endless political drama and current events, has affected everyone this year," she says. "Connection with animals is a dopamine booster and an antidote to the dopamine we chase after with chocolate." 14 Caffeinate Consuming caffeine can help you lose weight. "This has appetite suppressant effects and can rev up metabolism," she reveals. "Just be careful but not to over-do it!" 15 Manage Dietary Setbacks with Kindness "Those who manage dietary set-backs or weight regain with kindness were more likely to get back to their routines as compared to people who catastrophize weight gain," Dr. Youdin reveals. "The latter group were less likely to resume healthy eating patterns and physical activity." And now that you've got a great foundation, don't miss these additional 19 Weight Loss Foods That Really Work, Say Experts.

'Jeopardy!' guest host Mayim Bialik on the ɽream job,' biggest challenge, Alex Trebek's legacy

Walmart and Brandon Maxwell Ink Fashion Deal

The New York designer and “Project Runway” judge, who hails from Longview, Texas, has been named the first creative director for Walmart Inc.’s exclusive fashion brands Free Assembly and Scoop, where he will be responsible for designing seasonal collections for men, women and children, as well as accessories. He will also be involved in brand marketing initiatives and campaigns.

More from WWD

Free Assembly is comprised of elevated everyday essentials and is stocked in 500 Walmart doors. Scoop is more trend-driven, building on the legacy of the late New York boutique of the same name, and stocked in 250 doors. Maxwell’s guidance on the collections will begin to be seen for holiday his first fully designed collections will make their debuts for spring 2022.

“When I started my brand, I wanted to make things that help people feel their best and do that for everyone,” said Maxwell, who came to design through styling, most notably for Lady Gaga, and launched his namesake collection in 2015. “This partnership allows me to make beautiful designs accessible for all and I feel really proud and excited to do that.”

Like most Southerners, Maxwell has a long history with the Bentonville, Ark.-born retailer.

“Growing up, my friends and I would go to Walmart a lot. And I still go to Walmart several times a week,” he said via Zoom from his hometown, where he was visiting family. “So I feel like I know the customer quite well, the customer is my friends and family, the customer is me.”

The news comes just weeks after the retail giant promoted Denise Incandela from executive vice president of the women’s group to its new head of apparel, and tapping Maxwell is a hint at where she plans to take Walmart as it drives deeper into fashion.

“Everything is on the table,” said Incadela, who came to Walmart in 2017 with executive experience at Aldo Shoes, Ralph Lauren and Saks Fifth Avenue.

“I’m thinking about what the position of Walmart apparel should be going forward and how we continue to evolve and build on what has traditionally been a basics business. Brandon is emblematic of that,” she said, explaining that when they met in November 2019, she was not initially looking to hire a creative director. “I loved his vision and how passionate he was about giving the Walmart customer a more luxury shopping experience.…I love what he’s done with both lines. I love his perspective on color and print and he styles with a feminine touch.”

Over the past few years, the retailer has been polishing its fashion image by adding 1,000 brands to its offerings, including Levi’s, Champion, Free People, Jordache, Lee, Reebok, Bonobos and Eloqui, as well as private lines Sofia Jeans by Sofia Vergara and Free Assembly. Walmart has said that three of its apparel lines are $2 billion brands.

“Brandon is not someone you might have thought we’d partner with because of his luxury background, but our goal is to establish ourselves as a fashion destination, get a bigger percentage of a woman’s closet, and attract new customers. There are many ways we will do that and designer collaborations could be part of it,” she continued, acknowledging a strategy that’s been successful for competitor Target, as well as countless other brands at the high and low end of the market.

In her new role as EVP of apparel and private brands, Incandela oversees all apparel offerings online and in stores.

“We are also investing in the in-store experience for Free Assembly, new mannequins, fixtures and hangers, so it’s a full 360,” she said.

How will content fit in, something that competitor Amazon has been working on integrating into its retail experience with streaming Amazon Prime fashion-based shows such as “Making the Cut” and “Savage x Fenty?”

“It’s increasingly important and not just our own content, but user-generated content and influencer content,” Incandela said of Walmart’s content strategy, which has included two recent live shopping events with influencers on TikTok. She added that Maxwell “will have a strong voice in content, marketing and creative — that’s part of his role for those two brands. Not just designing clothes, but communications.”

Maxwell, who presented his spring 2021 main line collection in December and has yet to reveal plans for fall, has been working with the Walmart design teams based in New York. “From the first time I was cutting rolls of fabric in my grandmother’s dress shop, it’s always been a chance to learn. I don’t believe clothes are just clothes, they allow you to see the world in a different way and express yourself in a different way. To bring that to more people is the journey I’ve been on, and bringing my life in New York and my life in Texas together feels great,” he said.

Store appearances are definitely in the cards, he said.

“I hope to do as many things face-to-face as I can, when it’s safe to do so, because my job as a designer is to be of service, to bring high-quality, beautiful design to everyone. And you can’t get there without understanding their lives, and what purpose they need a fashion piece to fulfill.”

Naturally, some of what he does will find its way to Walmart. His spring collection, in particular, featured several more casual pieces, like twist-waistband sweatpants and a sweatshirt with a train, that one could see translating easily to lower price points.

To mark the announcement of the partnership, Walmart is rolling out a line of face masks designed by Maxwell available online, and donating $100,000 to DonorsChoose.org, a charity he chose because of its dedication to helping public school teachers get materials they need for students to learn. “My sister is an educator, so it’s one thing I’m passionate about,” the designer said.

On plans for a future season of “Project Runway,” he was mum. “I love doing it, and my connection with the show has only strengthened my ability to talk to people who want to go out and start their own collections,” said Maxwell. “That will be the most inspiring thing for me if someone comes into Walmart and sees design there that inspires them to want to go out and do this, too.”
