Why would you consider taking the time to “reset” your health?

Why would you consider taking the time to “reset” your health?

Nutrition is a key building block to a healthy life.

Maybe you feel fine. Feel good. Maybe even great! Good to hear. Everyone deserves that.

Join our upcoming next Cleanse Class with Coaching!

How important is our health? It might be the single most valuable thing we have. And the one thing that we have control over. Family, friends, security – they are also extremely important, but you cannot enjoy them unless you are in good health, right?

But for many of us we know we could:

  • Feel healthier
  • More energized
  • More focused
  • And be ready for anything!

What is a “reset” anyhow?

A reset is just what it sounds like – taking the time to change up your system to start living healthier. A good way is to start is with a “cleanse”.

What is a “cleanse” anyway?

Funny true story: I was asking my doctor about her advice on cleanses. She immediately thought of a colon cleanse. Yikes! So I had to explain in a bit more detail.

Basically, it is taking some time away from your current diet and giving your system a chance to “reset”. The typical format is to limit your diet to fruits and vegetables for a few days. Is it easy? Probably not. Is it worth it? Probably so.

With our busy schedules this can be a difficult thing to do. But giving yourself a chance to improve your health is probably worth the effort, right?

But a “cleanse” is only the first step. It can be the change you need to start eating a healthier diet.

Maybe you want to lose some weight. Have more energy. Improve your focus. You will want to use this opportunity to get on the right track with your health!

And let’s face it, if you just go back to fast food after the “cleanse”, you are going to be missing out on the chance to make a real difference in your life.

Your best chance for real success in “resetting” your health is to continue your change with a proven program that has helped others do just the same.

Join Our Next Cleanse Coaching Class

Starting each week we will be begin our next 7-day Cleanse Class with free coaching. Don’t fear going it alone. Join us to get daily reminders and a place to talk to others. And get your friends to come along too!

Sign up here and I will be emailing you all of the details.

It is a complete program with a 7-day “cleanse” and then a follow up program of healthy nutrition.

I work with a company that has just launched a 30-day challenge program. I know their products work because I have used their program to lose over 40 lbs. myself!

More Information

If you would like to know more – send me a message and we can talk. I always like connecting. After all this is “social” media, right?

Sound like something you are up for?

It is never too early or late in life to make a difference
in your health. One of my favorite sayings is: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is right now.” 

P.S. And the best part is that the 30-day challenge program is guaranteed – if you don’t feel a difference in 30 days you can get all your money back. Even after completing the program.

Instant Pot Chickpeas

If you’re trying to cook chickpeas at home instead of using canned, this is the guide for you! We’re sharing our favorite way to cook chickpeas in the Instant Pot.

The result is tender, buttery chickpeas perfect for salads, sandwiches, dips, and more! We love using this technique because it’s faster, more consistent, and less hands-on than stovetop methods. Plus, home-cooked chickpeas taste SO much better than store-bought and are far less expensive!

Dubious health claim of the week: cranberries and UTIs

Source https://www.foodpolitics.com/2020/08/dubious-health-claim-of-the-week-cranberries-and-utis/

The FDA has just announced a Qualified Health Claim for Certain Cranberry Products and Urinary Tract Infections.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced today in a letter of enforcement discretion that it does not intend to object to the use of certain qualified health claims regarding consuming certain cranberry products and a reduced risk of recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI) in healthy women.

Huh?

The FDA does not exactly approve health claims that are not backed up by scientific evidence.  It just doesn’t object to them.

This one, no surprise, comes in response to a request by Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc, which would love to be able to market its products as helping to prevent UTIs (which lot…

What is one to make of a headline like this?

CABBAGE DIET HOPE: Eating sauerkraut, coleslaw and raw cabbage ‘could protect against coronavirus.’”

I raced right to the study, fast-tracked in a not-yet-peer-reviewed paper:

Carbohydrates vs. Fat: How Should You Fuel Your Training?

Source https://www.nomeatathlete.com/carbs-vs-fat-for-fuel/

The longstanding debate over whether you should burn fat or carbohydrates for workout and race day fuel is still raging in endurance circles, but here’s what I believe: 

There’s a time a place for both methods, you just need to know when and how to use them. 

I’m a competitive vegan triathlete, who, after years of terrible GI issues during training, switched to fueling almost entirely with whole foods. And through a lot of trial and error (and science… I have a M.S. in Nutrition), I’ve come to understand what fuel types work best for different workouts, races, and training regimens.
