Tiers of the Power Foods Lifestyle | Ditch the All-Or-Nothing Thinking!

Do you have all-or-nothing thinking when it comes to Dieting and Nutrition? Are you guilty of jumping on the latest bandwagon for nutrition and dieting, done well for a time, then felt completely disappointed in yourself as life happened and you weren’t able to finish strong? If so, you’re not alone. A recent study found that only 20% of people who start a diet make it to the one week mark, and of those people, only 20% make it to the 3-month mark. Is there any wonder there is SUCH a big business for diets, nutritional dogmas, weight loss products, and supplements? I cringe and shake my head as I observe what’s happening in our society. Simultaneously, my heart fills with gratitude that I was able to exit the pool of frustration I personally was swimming in, and “dry off.” Now, I’m being the “lifeguard” trying to pull YOU out...

Bride Body 35-Day Challenge: Day 3

DAY 3: WEDNESDAY of the Bride Body 35-day Challenge Program             (click here to order your own copy of this program!) Workout: I was so happy to get in my 2nd day of the program workout at the gym!! Nate even joined me for this one and we added on a fourth set to really bring the heat to this upper body day! I found myself alternating between goals for myself on each set to do either 20 reps faster (trying to do it in 20 seconds), or 10 reps slower like the program says with a 10 second rest in between. This is a variation of Tabatas (why we did four sets instead of three) to make a 1/2 Tabata sequence. Many people who have been coached in Fitness plans by me are very familiar with this lifting strategy. It’s a strategic way to take the...

Eat Sugary, Processed Foods Like THIS To Lose Weight

Do you love sugary, processed, non-strategic foods? Did you know you can still eat and enjoy them? After all, if you are trying to follow a diet with someone else’s rules that just aren’t working for you, I can almost guarantee you will not stick with it. How do I know that? Because I failed at so many diets in my life. I did great for a week or two–you know, I have a distant memory of making it a month on one approach, but time and time again I broke. I gave in. I binged, and it turned into a repetitive downward spiral, ending in heavier  eating sessions. Thank goodness I finally realized that I needed a completely new way of looking, and thinking, about  food to succeed! Now that I have achieved that through some very awesome principles, I’d like to share them with you. Do you agree...

5 Shocking Ways to Combat Depression with Real Food

“If you struggle with feeling hopeless, sad, depressed, or mentally fragile, you’re not alone. More than 100 million American (1 in 3) struggle through life with depression.” -Mark Hyman, MD Pharmaceutical companies are preying on the epidemic of a highly depressed population. Anti-depressants are prescribed left and right as the default coping mechanism when we are feeling stressed, sad, blue, and our  “light” has gone out. While I do not fault physicians entirely as I feel many of them are doing their best to help people with acute conditions who present, and I recognize they just do not have the time nor training to get to deeper root causes, conventional medicine cannot cure the rising rates of depression through treating symptoms only.  There is a division of those who prescribe medications alone, then there are those who insist that therapy is the path to the heart of the issues. We can observe a huge disconnect...

5 Ways to Stop Gaining Weight When You Travel

‘I’m on vacation,‘ you think as you dive headfirst into a large entrée followed by a succulent dessert. ‘I’ll do better when I’m not traveling. I want to enjoy this now.’ While these thoughts are the norm for most people while traveling, camping, or even stay-cationing, studies show that the majority of people also experience physical discomfort due to the more lax mindset. Non-strategic eating (also known as eat-whatever-you-want-whenever-you-want-it) brings them more enjoyment of an expanded pallet, interesting tastes, and a satisfaction in the overall experience. However, choosing to be a strategic eater while traveling can alleviate many of the physical discomforts that come when traveling. Strategic eating can be defined as following a simple formula of pairing certain nutrient-containing foods together to stabilize blood sugar and provide proper nourishment to the brain and other chemical systems in the body. While strategic eating in the Power Foods Lifestyle has four...
