Learn the Habits of Health!

Are you feeling overweight, tired, or simply unhealthy? Have you tried to lose weight and failed?

You are not alone. Millions of Americans are caught in an obesigenic world that is plagued with fast food options around every corner, poor eating habits, a general lack of activity, high stress environments, insufficient sleep, and a"sick-care" health system. In this unsupported environment, it is no wonder that two-thirds of adult Americans are overweight, and the predicted health of future generations is even more uncertain.

My passion in life has always been to help people, in any way I can. I became a Health Coach for that exact reason. I find myself surrounded by numerous people who look to me for advice, recommendations, referrals, etc, all concerned with their health.

Now I can help my clients be in complete control of their health. I can offer a simple solution: high-quality, medically formulated meal replacements combined with free coaching support to help you lose weight and keep it off. It is not a diet, but a two-phased approach for weight loss and maintenance. Small actions, such as building exercise into your day and eating breakfast, add up to make a significant impact on your overall health. Throughout this process, I will serve as your mentor, educator, coach, and friend.

Before you know it, friends, family, colleagues, and even your doctor will want to know your secret to looking and feeling good. There is no greater feeling than when I am able to introduce optimal health to a Client, a life-long friend!

Eat for Less Stress!

Situations, environment, deadlines, peers... all add stress to our lives... and yes, even FOOD can add stress in the body!!
The impact of stress takes a negative toll on the body if we don't do something to change it...

Try reducing or eliminating these five foods to positively affect your body and reduce stress:

1. Sugar - By eliminating foods with added sugars—like pastries, flavored yogurt, and soda—and eating more whole foods, you’ll keep your blood sugar stable, which means fewer mood swings, reduced stress, and a happier body.
2. Artificial Sweeteners - These artificial sweeteners can lead to health problems like headaches, metabolic disease, and cardiovascular disease. But they can also result in an addiction to sugary foods by retraining your taste buds, causing you to seek out even more sweet (and largely unhealthy) foods.
3. Processed Carbohydrates - aside from making you extra thirsty, the extra sodium in the found in these foods causes your body to retain more fluid, which then forces your heart to work harder to keep the blood pumping. It can also increase blood pressure, making you feel bloated and generally unwell, which can certainly increase your stress levels.
4. Alcohol - drinking alcohol can increase the production of hormones that will leave you feeling anxious and more stressed than before you began imbibing. It can also increase blood pressure and heart rate and trigger those same stress-like symptoms within the body.
5. Excess Caffeine - Too much caffeine can spell trouble for your adrenal glands by overstimulating the body. And because it stimulates the nervous system, caffeine can cause a rise in blood pressure and heart rate that will ultimately increase feelings of anxiety.

Test it out for yourself!  All you've got to lose is some added stress :0)
