How Did Josh Lose 120 lbs in 12 months?

IMG_8473 (1)

  Many of my followers have been watching Josh as he began his journey with me 12 months ago.  The number one question I have been asked is, "How did he lose 120 pounds in 12 months?"  Well, he didn't do it by exercising it off. He only weight trained with me twice a week, and those were mostly time efficient, metabolic boosting, full body circuit workouts. I also gave him 'homework' and asked him to walk 3 times a week for 30-60 minutes. He did that MAYBE once or twice a week. Apparently, he didn't lose his weight through the 'do more eat less' program because he didn't really invest a lot of time 'doing more', and as I always say, exercising too much will only make you … [Read more...]

Do You Experience Dinner Amnesia ?

P1212

So many of my clients have the best of intentions when it comes to eating healthy and following through on their wellness goals, but then 'amnesia' sets in, especially when they are hungry, tired, and limited on time.  When it comes time for dinner they 'forget' how important it is to them to eat healthy and stay with their plan to lose weight. If you are finding that you are one of the many health seekers that does great during the day, but then has amnesia at dinner time then pre-made healthy meals is just what the Health Coach orders!

Does Organic Really Matter?

Just the other day I had a conversation with my 81 year old father who said he hasn't been to a doctor in 30 years, and he has eaten regular 'non-organic' food all his life. He said, "All of this talk about eating organic and spending the extra money to get pesticide free food, is it something to worry about or is it just a bunch of paranoid new age hippies making a big deal about nothing? Surely the government wouldn't allow something in our food system that is toxic. Plus, I wash my fruits and vegetables anyway. What's the big deal?  I've lived a long and healthy life without it."  Let's just say the produce we eat now ain't the same produce that our parents ate. In the 21st century … [Read more...]
