How to Plan Your Healthy Lifestyle With Ease [2 Easy Steps]

Lifestyle is the path you carve from the choices you make.  Planning your lifestyle is the first step towards success. Everyone is guilty of making excuses for their behavior like, ‘It’s the weekend so I can take it easy,’ or ‘I just don’t have it in me during the colder seasons to exercise like I do in the summer.’  But you will become your truest self (the version of yourself that works the hardest and smartest) when you plan and follow through even when it’s the weekend, the holidays, or when people around you are pressuring you to give in.  You will get to know yourself and discover that you like the person you are becoming. It’s difficult to know where to start in making changes to an already worn path, so here are the simple steps for a successfully planned change in lifestyle. Step 1: Hold A Weekly Planning...

“Transformation” with Brittney Becker (Episode 189)

Transformation is a word often looked at by society as one of completely magical changing. However, here at Body Buddies, we know that transformation is created one meal, one workout, and one day at a time. It requires a shift in internal dialogue, emotional processing, and intentional external behavior. This process of remapping the brain is extraordinary when one sees it happen in another’s life (or their own!). Far too many think it’s “impossible” and too hard for them. That’s why I asked Brittney Becker, mother, wife, and rockstar Body Buddy to come on the podcast to talk about her transformation. She will share with you insights into balance, shifting beliefs about herself, and how to make it all happen while being a mom of many children! You will love learning in this podcast with Kristy Jo and Brittney. Tune in now and share with another mother who is on...

Trishia Fights Symptoms of MS with the Power Foods Lifestyle

“I was so tired, to the point it took everything I had to get out of bed, my feet hurt at first, and my hands were swollen it hurt to bend my fingers. It started to progress. My legs began to have severe shooting, sharp and burning pain, my fatigue was worsening.” Receiving letters like the following are the sole reason that I continue to do what I do here at Body Buddies. My eyes are filled with tears and gratitude to Trishia for sharing her story, and I hope this will inspire even one person to stand up for their health (and their life). *This letter is shared with permission. Dear Kristy Jo, I started reading your book, The Power Foods Lifestyle, back in August 2017. A friend recommended you to me. I was not well at all in health, and I was emotionally sick. It started back in...

Hypothyroidism and Weight Loss: A Case Study

Do you have Hypothyroidism, and are experiencing weight gain, brain fog, fatigue, and  wishing you could feel like YOU again? Many people find it  increasingly difficult to lose weight while experiencing Hypothyroidism. This condition extends to include those with partial thyroid removal, full thyroid removal, and Hashimoto’s. However, with the right nutrition strategy using REAL food and proper portions, combinations, and timing, I’m seeing women  everywhere losing weight and feeling GREAT!! It’s so exciting!!! I’d like to share with you the story of Cheryl, 48, from California. The Power Foods Lifestyle helped her lose 25 pounds in 8 weeks.  My jaw literally dropped when I got her transformation photos after she had been living the Power Foods Lifestyle. Before the Power Foods Lifestyle, she didn’t feel healthy, had endometriosis, had no energy, and felt so overwhelmed that something needed to change. She used to do 3 meals a day with...

Shannon Beats Smoking, Drinking. . . AND Her Food Coping Triggers

Dear Body Buds, I remember having my first real conversation with Shannon after she won one of my 8-week Challenges–it was one that really struck me with the beauty of CHANGE. She told me her story of food addiction after needing a new coping mechanism after quitting smoking and drinking. I was amazed to hear of her resilience as she continued learning, working, trying, and achieving! Here is a small part of her story that I am sure you will find as inspiring as I have: “3 years ago I was a cigarette smoker and an alcoholic. My family and I started going to church and I quit those things along with coffee, all at once cold turkey. To help with all of the different cravings I was experiencing, I turned to food. I allowed myself to indulge in anything and everything. I ended up getting heavier than when I...

Tonya Learns to Love Herself For Lasting Changes

Dear Body Buds, It’s always a privilege when I get an email from somebody who tells me of their success with the Power Foods Lifestyle. Tonya was one of those that kept her story to herself . . . until I pulled it out of her! Tonya had won my book in a contest after liking the Body Buddies Facebook page on the recommendation from a friend. She got lucky and won the paperback book I was giving away, from which she said, “I immediately connected to you.” After reading the book, Tonya made changes in her nutritional intake and ended up losing 30 pounds! “I didn’t have a good ‘before’ picture because I refused to have pictures taken of me. I’m making LIFETIME changes and will not be ashamed of who I am in the process. I’m learning to love me because the only way to make a true...

Abe Ward Picks up his Metabolism!

Start Weight: 177 lb. Final Weight: 175 lb. 8-week Challenge 2014 Butte, Montana “My girlfriend, Shaye Murphy, led me to Body Buddies. Her cousin had worked with you in the past and suggested we try it. I always wanted to see what the difference would be if I ate clean. I had very limited experience. I had some idea from coaches when I played college football, but nothing really solid–nothing tailored to me. I pretty much ate what I knew how to make and tried to eat as many meals as I could to gain some mass. During this 8-week challenge I have experienced what true clean eating can do for me. I lost fat where I didn’t even know I had fat! I was able to prove to myself that I can eat healthy if I set my mind to it! I think my favorite part of this whole challenge is the breakfasts. I...

“Why in the World Would I Run a Kajillion Miles to Never Lose a Pound?”

Dear Body Buds, There are times I come across an individual who so wholly grasps the message of Body Buddies and what it means to live a strategically healthy lifestyle that I ask them to share their story. Lindsey is one these individuals. As a beautiful mom of two and a friend from my middle and high school years, I was keenly interested in seeing if she would latch onto the message and capture all that strategy can do in one’s life. She exceeded any expectation I had and I truly am delighted for her! Enjoy her story. I’m sure you’ll be as inspired as I was. (Way to go, Linds!) Love your bud, Kristy Jo “If there is one thing in the world that is so frustrating is working towards a weight loss goal and never seeing the scale change…especially after having a baby! I am a mom of 2. I gained...
