Here’s 7 Ways To Eat Less Sugar

If you want to quickly pack on a few pounds then eat lots of refined sugar. Oh, wait, why would you want to do that? Let’s eat less sugar, instead, and watch the pounds effortlessly slide off…

We’ve been eating more and more sugar over the past 200 years, which has led to rising obesity numbers. Back in 1822 the average person ate only 6.3 lbs of sugar per year, compared to 130 lbs of sugar in 2012. That’s more than 20 times as much sugar in our modern diet! No wonder we are bigger than ever…

6 Clearly Defined Concepts for Creating the New You 2015

Okay, here it comes. . . It is January 1st again. A time when most of us are making the commitment to get in shape, for real this time! Unfortunately it usually plays out to be the same silly song and dance we act out with ourselves as well as with others leading to a lack of sustainable success. And yet, here we are (again), trying to fulfill some deep desire to make improvements to this elusive and vague thing called fitness.

Kindly allow me to present you with a theory of why you may be continually falling short of sustainable success. To me, sustainable success is a progressive achievement lasting six months or more without any wobbling or yo-yo effect. Perhaps you do not truly understand how to set objectives, or maybe are confused by a “result” versus an “objective.” Try to think of an objective simply as a dream combined with a clearly defined timeline and a result as a desired effect you want from a specific event. Objectives must coincide with some type of larger significance to our life. They need to have a value based on an improvement that will create a truly emotional change from within our being. Too often I find that many of us focus on the result or effect, all while only seeing the path that is seemingly 12 inches in front of us.

Power House Super Greens Better Than Kale

I think we can all agree that kale’s popularity in the limelight has some of the other super green vegetables a little jealous, especially because not everyone knows just how beneficial they are. Some people’s digestive system cannot handle the coarseness of the hearty kale plant (even when it is cooked) because of of the sulfur the digestive process stirs up during digestion. Below are super greens that are overlooked that yield significant positive nutritional health benefits (other than our trusty kale) and the highest nutrient per calorie score.

The Garcinia Cambogia Promise

If you have a facebook account, you have probably clicked on an article that is really a hidden ad for Garcinia Cambogia, a weight loss miracle that is said to have no negative side effects but help you become shredded. Yes, this sounds too good to be true (so probably is). What is Garcinia Cambogia? It is a plant where the fruit rind is used to make medicine. Marketed as a very inexpensive and natural (even organic) pumpkin-shaped fruit native to Indonesia, this miracle supplement is all the rage. I think the words, “scientifically proven to tear away fat from your body” is its mission statement. Let’s look at the promises:

Acceleration Training: The Power Plate

My new favorite piece of equipment for fitness, flexibility, whole body circulation, muscle strengthening, conditioning and recovery is the Power Plate. Okay, maybe I am so attracted to this doctor’s scale looking vibrating machine because it started out so foreign to me, and it promised the world, and would reduce cellulite? The Power Plate company uses the ideology and science of accelerated training (vibration plate technology) to naturally stimulate the body’s reaction to vibration (in as little as 15 minutes, three times a week). It is not just a fad, however. In Europe, acceleration training has been scientifically proven to help people of all ages, genders, and professions recover, and has also been approved by the EEC in Europe (which holds the highest standards in rehabilitation medical devices).
