By Admin | on May. 4, 2017

I get asked this sometimes and it’s a tricky answer.  Someone just asked me this one the other day and I wanted to do a good job of explaining this so I decided to answer it publicly so more people can benefit from the answer I give.  When we are trying to lose weight most people have a target.

Although dieting can feel that way at times. I’m talking about 4 words that I think need to be a part of

By Admin | on April. 12, 2017

I gave a seminar last month and I sometimes ask people what they want to get out of this talk. One of the comments was: How to get motivated?

So the question is how do we actually get started? I am going to give you a couple ideas and

Are you stuck planning to plan?

By Admin | on April. 6, 2017

I was talking to different clients at the beginning of this month. I was asking them, “What are you working on this month?” and “How can I help you?” Many people were saying they were wanting to eat better or lose weight. If I asked them how they intended to do this they usually didn’t have much to say. They were figuring they would just try more. It reminded me that: We are not held back as much by our effort

By Admin | on February. 7, 2017

Wait... What?... Nothing is better for you than sugar?  You mean sugar is a health food? whoops...I mean... Nothing, is better for you than sugar! Or said a different way...It's better for your health to eat nothing than to eat sugar. That's quite a claim!  Can I back it up?  Not personally but science can!  This is a pretty new idea that is still just starting to get attention.  After all it was only 1793 that they discovered this concept!  (hee hee, well maybe it's not

9 Reasons it’s Better to be Overweight

By Admin | on February. 4, 2017

You list all the positives for making the decision on one side and list all the negative results on the other. At first some people may think there are no benefits to being overweight, but I’ve been training people long enough to know that isn’t true. Sometimes we are even unaware
