Leaky Gut and the Microbiome

What is Leaky Gut and the Microbiome?  Latest research reveals we are doing ourselves a disservice by not looking at the root cause of illness and disease. How could that be? Due to the connection between the ecosystem in the gut and all the bacteria housed there, researchers are finding the direct correlation between how we eat, autoimmune conditions, mental health conditions, and nearly every one of these “mystery illnesses” that continue to pop up. Talking about the chemicals in our food and how they are changing our biology is a topic that many don’t want to hear; in fact, they believe I am quite controversial when I talk about this. However, that mental construct, carefully crafted through cultural paradigms and media programming, is doing no one any good. Instead, it’s making us sicker and sicker and raising our mortality rates, insurance premiums, and dissatisfaction with life with each passing...

Why Grass-Fed Beef Is Superior to Conventional Beef (STOP Buying It)

“Beef. It’s what’s for dinner . . . ” (here’s what they didn’t tell us). . . Without a doubt, grass-fed beef is growing in popularity due to not only taste, but proper education. In 2013, retail sales of grass-fed beef clocked in at over $400 million, which was staggering compared to only $5 million in sales in 1998.   Eating beef once per day in at the main meal (dinner) is what we were told for years during the American advertising campaign, paid for by the Beef Checkoff Program. While I agree this was a successful campaign when it comes to profits of the cattle industry, I do not agree with the slogan. Here at Body Buddies and the Power Foods Lifestyle, my job as a Mind and Body Strategist is to help you learn not only some important science, but to navigate your thoughts and application of behavior appropriately for your...

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...

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...

Where Does Spirituality Fit In Your Health Improvement?

Have you ever wondered how to deepen your purpose, and the meaning behind caring for your body with proper nutrition and fitness? Have you ever felt there was a part of you that was missing? Have you wondered how you can find more enjoyment in everything you do? If so, you’re not alone. Feelings of emptiness, lack of motivation, and overall ‘blah’ seem to be a constant companion to so many who I am blessed to interact with at Body Buddies. In this blog post, I would like to consider together the benefits of bringing more spirituality into everything we do–from nutrition and fitness to our every day work and hobbies. I believe that a careful analysis of your life and the effort to incorporate my challenge at the end of this post will be the first domino in a chain reaction of positive events in your life. I can...
