Food is good

Good Morning Sunshine!

Do you think maintaining your health and weight is all about calories in versus calories out – regardless of quality? In my opinion, it’s more about quality in versus quality out. You can eat a whole lot of ┬ácalorie free “food” and still be unhealthy and overweight. Check the ingredients of what you’re about to eat – if it looks like a chemical, it probably is! Eating too much chemical laden “food” can disrupt your entire endocrine system – leading to a whole mess of problems (including weight gain!). Remember – don’t beat yourself up – just take baby steps for improvements in health! Let me know if you have any questions! I would be happy to assist!

Have a beautiful day!!

Meaningful Success Story

Posted in Life, Nutrition, Primal Challenge, Success Stories with tags , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2010 by masteryahnutrition

Good morning everyone!

I wanted to piggy back off of PerformancEDU’s meaningful success story, posted a few weeks ago. PerformancEDU and YahNutrition have teamed up with this AMAZING young lady and we have both welcomed her into our family with open arms!

Jeannie Clarke is amazing – hands down. Successful business woman, beautiful mother, fabulous wife, amazing friend – but above all, Jeannie is an awesome person!! Jeannie came to us in January with the goal of losing 100 pounds. Now many of you may scoff at this and think it’s impossible – in fact, dietitians and doctors were telling Jeannie that this kind of weight loss is impossible without painful surgery or risky prescription meds.

7 months later, and 60 pounds down – Jeannie is proving all these negative nancy’s WRONG! I can only imagine the joy Jeannie felt, marching into that doctor’s office and seeing the look of shock on his face when she explained – “Yeah, I lost all this weight, the NATURAL way” GASP! And what is the “Natural” way – it’s eating foods that are nourishing to the body, and moving your body, the way that it is supposed to move.

Coupled with diet and fitness, the MOST important element of this journey, is Jeannie’s mindset. Success stories, like Jeannie’s, are rare NOT because they’re impossible – they are rare because people don’t have the proper mindset! If you don’t think you can do something, then guess what – you’re right!! But if you whole-heartedly believe that you CAN do it – then you WILL!!! It’s as simple as that. Simple, but not always easy ­čÖé That’s why it’s important to have SUPPORT! I am sure Jeannie can agree, that there have been many ups, but many downs as well. And that is all part of the journey – and she’s still going strong!! (See before and after photos here)

Jeannie is such an inspiration and I am proud to have her in our family!! So THANK YOU Jeannie, for all that you have brought us ­čÖé

Have a rockin’ day!!

Injections for Weight Loss??

Posted in Nutrition with tags , , , , , , on July 15, 2010 by masteryahnutrition

Hello Again!

I’ve been hearing a lot in the world today about injections for weight loss. Huh?? Yes….injections for weight loss. B12 injections, HCG injections (which is a pregnancy hormone!), and who knows what else. People are forking over hundreds of dollars on these risky injections to lose weight – and I have a feeling that their doctors aren’t really taking an honest look at what their patients are eating! It saddens me that we have gotten to this point in the medical community. Now, I must admit, that I don’t know everything about these injections – and maybe there are a few people out there who legitimately┬áneed these injections (although I doubt it) – but for the vast majority I think this is absurd! How about looking at what we are eating people???? These quick fix scams are dangerous, expensive, and don’t even work! The only person that gains anything, in my opinion, is the doctor selling this dang stuff.

What are your thoughts????? What do you know about this?? Anyone??

Please share! ­čÖé
