ARE NUMBERS IMPORTANT?

The most well known way of identifying weight loss is the bathroom scale.  Most of us are narrowly focused on the numbers on the scale to determine our progress.  However, scale measurements don’t tell us absolutely anything about how much fat has been lost.  Muscle is heavier than fat so you can trim up your body, lose the bulges and be better proportioned and the scale wouldn’t even show that you lost a pound.  Weight distribution is a much better indicator for results than the dreaded scale.  Paying attention to the way your clothes fit will be your best and safest way to track your progress.  Using the scale as a strategic way to dropping pounds will keep you constantly stuck in the roller coaster diet mode.  But if you work with the right nutrition plan assessed for your metabolic type, one that restores biochemical balance and overall health, you can solve your health and weight problems together...READ FULL

This leaves consumers uncertain about the safety of their egg dishes... READ FULL BLOG.

CANCER....Friend or Foe?

So I'm sure the topic of today's blog is sure to get some of you all revved up either to embrace or chastise me for what I believe when it comes to cancer.   

We all know someone who has succumb to cancer.  I lost my father to cancer at the age of 52 which struck a chord in my heart because of his age and the way he aged in the 4 years of being diagnosed. 

I believe the reason cancer has gotten so out of control is because we have deviated away from nature and the respect for her laws.  Nature’s command must be obeyed.  The sad thing is that most of us do not know what that means.  We have disconnected ourselves from nature and life, the way it was intended to be fulfilled...READ FULL

Less is MORE

I love the gym. It has been a consistent part of my life now for 24 years and I see no end in sight. Getting your endorphin rush is a pleasurable thing, however, being in the gym for hours isn’t.
