How are you coming along with your “New Year Resolutions”? Especially the ones you made regarding eating healthier, taking better care of your body and adopting an exercise program?
How would you like to, not only lose weight, but build a healthier body? It’s easier to stay healthy when your environment is healthy. So… where do you start? How do you create a body that’s healthy from the inside-out?
Time for a change
Over the holiday season, my mother and I both gained between 8 to 10 pounds! We gave ourselves the month of January to get back on track. Mom has had better results than I have over the past weeks, as I had several after-holiday gatherings. I still have 5 more pounds to go!
I’ve been told, “The hardest part about doing anything… is getting started”. Once you get started, a game plan will help you stick to your goals and will help you to achieve them. Everyone’s goals are different; some may want to shed those last stubborn 10 pounds. Others may want to reduce the amount of animal protein and dairy consumed, and for some it may be a complete lifestyle change.
Whatever your goal, stick to it and you will achieve it!
Allow yourself time, as it could take weeks, months or even years to see the results of the goals you have laid out for yourself. Regardless of how long it takes, remind yourself, “All things are possible.” I did not say easy – I said, “Possible”.

Real Food (vs Dead Food) Makes you Thin and Healthy!
What is “real” food? Real food gives life and has the right balance of vitamins and nutrients. There’s a misconception that if you eat less you will lose more weight. The fact is, if you eat more real food, you will lose more weight.
Real foods are:
- whole grains
- wild caught fish
Dead foods lack nutrients and enzymes and have no real flavor, so chemicals are used to enhance flavor and as preservatives. These are examples of dead foods:
- processed foods
- refined sugar
- red meat
- extra salt
