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...

30 Podcasts in 30 Days Challenge

If you’re feeling overwhelmed when making your lifestyle change with the Power Foods Lifestyle and Body Buddies, I need you take my 30 Podcasts in 30 days Challenge. If you want to learn a new language, you must immerse yourself in the culture and people who speak it. “The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.” -Ludwig Wittgenstein I’ll never forget the feelings of complete shock when I first walked the streets of Seoul, Korea as a brand new church missionary  in 2008. It was monsoon season and  the air was heavy and thick. The hum of beetles in the trees pierced my ears and made my head spin, but not nearly as much as hearing the people of South Korea speak as they passed me on the crowded streets. I was overwhelmed. I couldn’t understand a lick of what they were saying. This was nothing like...

Recipe Book Macros and Portions | The Power Foods Lifestyle

If you have purchased the Power Foods Lifestyle Recipe Books and wondered about how to adapt the macros and portion sizes, this blog post is for you. In the beginning of each volume of recipes, there is a full page that describes how portion sizes work. Note the words “guidelines” in the first paragraph. These are not, nor can they be, absolutes. The complexities of such nuanced information such as caloric expenditure, Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), energy levels, insulin resistance, digestive capacity, and hormone fluctuation renders it a nearly impossible task to give everyone that ever reads my books exact numbers. With that said, I do my best to give you a starting point. If you are serious about accelerating to your goals, decreasing your overwhelm, and just being told what to do, I encourage you to utilize my discounted Introductory Coaching Call.  Let’s now look at the page that discusses portions: Let’s...

How to Improve Your Personal Accountability in a Lifestyle Change

If you have ever struggled with accountability to nutrition changes, a fitness challenge, or simple health improvements, it’s time to learn a more efficient system that will help you reach (and sustain!) your health goals. I’ll never forget the day it donned on me that my Body Buddies needed to learn the system I used to make my own lifestyle changes. I was at my parents’ home in Santa Clara, Utah for a holiday weekend. Most of our festivities had come to an end and, as usual, my mind was on all of the people I am so blessed to interact with online. The thought seemed to enlarge in my mind until I could not wait another moment. I excused myself from the family activities, went into the basement, and stayed up the remainder of the evening working on this new 8-week Accountability workbook. This book, simple in design, but...

Holiday Gift Giving Guide for Body Buddies and the Health Conscious

Tis the season for gifting, so here’s what I’ll do I’ll list all my favorites for my health-minded crew! I’ll show pics and link them to where you can buy– on Amazon (where else) since Prime is so fly! Christmas is most definitely a wonderful time of year, though I’ll be honest–I will take the summer and the beach any day! As I get older each year (don’t we all, haha), I think life and seasons are truly about enjoying all times of the year and living in the present. When we stop  looking to tomorrow for pleasure and we stop reliving the past to conjure up memories of days gone by, we get to experience true bliss and presence. So as of right now, I’m HAPPY to be in December, to have fresh snow on the lawn, to be walking over icy crystals on the front walk and the...

Body Buddies 2017 — What Can It Do For YOU?

  Hi, I’m Kristy Jo, Mind and Body Strategist, and I want to help you POWER YOUR BODY! At the age of 25 years old, I was sick of being miserable, having zero confidence, hating my body, and out of control with my eating and exercise. My world revolved around my misery and I hit the darkest hole I’d ever been in. On March 7 2012, I heard a voice come into my mind as I was driving on the freeway: “You are the Master of yourself.” I thought I was crazy. But I hear it a second time. “You are the Master of yourself.” That day was the impetus, but every day since then has been the formation of new learning, new habits, new mindsets, new strategies to do EVERYTHING.I now share those mindset, nutrition, and fitness strategies with my Body Buddies–those who are willing to not just learn,...
