The Great Food Experiment

Here is a cool experiment. Go to your local grocery market in the ice cream isle. Find an ice cream that does not have soy, corn starch, corn syrup, glucose, canola oil or modified palm oil. Here’s a hint: Ice cream does not require any of those ingredients to be made, to taste good, or to stay fresh! They are however the cheaper, less nutritious versions (cheaper because of the farming handouts, less nutritious because of the farming methods) of real food items that can and should be used to make ice cream. Your Health Is Your Wealth!

Dining To Stop Making Cancer

DINING TO STOP MAKING CANCER One of the best aspects of our Coaching Program is to prove to you that food choices designed to prevent and control cancer can be delicious! The type of diet that appears to minimize cancer risk is low in “high-quality” animal protein and saturated animal fats, and rich in lower-glycemic-index carbohydrates from NON-GMO whole grains, pasta, beans, fruit and fruit juices. It also features phytonutrient-rich vegetables – particularly cruciferous and allium vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, garlic and onions that boost the body’s production of protective enzymes that detoxify carcinogens. Keeping the diet low to moderate in added fats or oils can work with regular exercise to promote leanness and good muscle insulin sensitivity, which aid the prevention and control of many types of cancer with side benefits of healthy fat loss. So that is what we do teach you how to prepare – ...(Read More)

Don’t make this big mistake with your health

Magnesium Deficiency and it’s consequences to you.  Your body is made up of trillions of cells.  Each one of these cells is responsible for charging complex systems that maintain homeostasis and keep you alive.  Your cells depend on the fuel they need to function so that you can enjoy optimal health and longevity. Unfortunately, our food sources have become contaminated by industrialized farming methods and over-processing, leaving our cells with inadequate fuel to function properly. Topsoil depletion of one essential mineral in particular has instigated a sweeping deficiency—and consequent health crisis—across the globe.  With soil depletion growing worse every year, and global health declining, it’s imperative to supplement with bioavailable vitamins and minerals to make up for nutrient-deficient foods. It’s not only soil depletion that exacerbates magnesium deficiency.  The Standard American Diet—notoriously high in sugar, salt, fat, and animal protein—accelerates magnesium loss.  It takes 287 molecules of magnesium to break down ...(Read More)

Taking Ownership of your Health and Wellness

Taking ownership of your health and wellness is a completely new paradigm because for decades in conventional medicine most of us growing up felt that if we had cancer or a life threatening disease befell us for some unknown reason, we would just go to the doctor and get it fixed by attacking it. If the cancer or  life threatening disease went away no one ever looked to see if there was a connection between their lifestyle and their disease. So this is really a whole new paradigm change.  We didn’t think about genetic modified foods because it wasn’t around. Genetic modified foods and pounds of sugar being put into our food supply  is a relatively new thing that took place after the industrial revolution. In the past we didn’t eat the huge amounts of sugar that are being added to our food supply today. We couldn’t eat that many ...(Read More)

Tips from My 18 year Fitness Journey

  Tips from My 18 Year Fitness Journey!! Tips & Lessons from my personal Fitness Journey. I share with you the latest health and fitness information that really works in the real world before anyone else. No amount of exercise will correct hormone imbalances for fat loss: You must control your Leptin hormone in your battle to lose body fat and put one more hormone on your side. People are unknowingly fighting a losing battle with leptin every time they attempt to lose weight. Your body depends on high levels of leptin and sensitive leptin receptors to burn fat. Anytime you go on a diet and reduce your calorie intake, leptin levels plummet and fat burning is dramatically reduced. Because leptin’s main function is to protect your body against starvation, and in the midst of decreased food intake (i.e. dieting), your body unfortunately views your stored body fat as a ...(Read More)

Fat loss hormone to rebalance weight loss

  You must control your Leptin hormone in your battle to lose body fat and put one more hormone on your side. People are unknowingly fighting a losing battle with leptin every time they attempt to lose weight. Your body depends on high levels of leptin and sensitive leptin receptors to burn fat. Anytime you go on a diet and reduce your calorie intake, leptin levels plummet and fat burning is dramatically reduced. Because leptin’s main function is to protect your body against starvation, and in the midst of decreased food intake (i.e. dieting), your body unfortunately views your stored body fat as a huge asset to survival. After all, body fat provides a vast supply of stored energy and warmth, both highly-valued resources when food is in short supply. You see, when you go on a diet, your body isn’t aware of your hopes for a slim, tight waistline ...(Read More)

Fitness Journey

Things that I have noticed in my fitness journey: 3 Reasons why the Preacher Curl creates imbalances. Reason #1: over-shortening or lengthening muscles that support your shoulder while lifting-weight. Reason #2: Only working one muscle and one joint, so the metabolic effect is very low. Reason #3: You’re training your muscles to be strong with a very forward shoulder and shortened pec position, creating a body imbalance. The posture you lift in is the posture you stay in. Creating muscle imbalances sets the stage for injuries. 

Fitness Journey

Things that I have noticed in my fitness journey: 3 Reasons why the Leg Extension Machine creates imbalances. Reason #1: sitting while exercising your quads, rather than using them to get up and down is hard on joints, and the wrong way to train your quadriceps. I prefer open chain exercises vs. closed chain exercises. Example: A series of lunges would be a better way to train your quadriceps. Reason #2: Only working one muscle group at a time instead of all sides of your leg. The less muscle involved equals less metabolic effect. Reason #3: Since you’re only working the front of your thigh, you’re creating the most common leg muscle imbalance that exists i.e. weak hamstrings.

Fitness Journey:

Somethings that I have noticed on my health and fitness journey: 3 reasons why the Leg Curl Machine can be absolutely horrible: Reason #1 Almost impossible not to arch your back and train the wrong area of your hamstring, with a lot of pressure on your spinal discs. (your laying on your abs, this is not an ideal position for training) Reason #2 You’re working the wrong part of your hamstrings (your lower hamstring not the upper, which isn’t very functional and misses the majority of the metabolic effect.) Reason #3 Your hamstrings and abs counteract each other, to stabilize your spine, because you’re laying on your abs, you’re guaranteed an imbalance. These imbalances can lead to back and hip injuries.
