If you’re not watching out for you, who is?

You should be vibrant and exuberant every day. Is your job really more important than your health?

Meditating creates calm and focus in most people. If we take the time to do it every morning, calm and focused is how we will lead our entire day.

Lose 8 lbs in 10 days

To take control of our waistlines

We need to stabilize our sugar. There are a host of neurological problems that we are seeing today due to high insulin levels.

Easiest way to stabilize sugar and stay in shape:

  1. Quit eating CRAP:
    1. Corn
    2. Rice
    3. All grains
    4. Potatoes
  2. Balance the protein, fiber and carbohydrate intake with a 3 to 1 to 3 ratio= PFC 3-1-3
  3. Eat every 3 hours for only 8 to 9 hours during the day.


For meditating it’s super easy to download an app on your phone and have it guide you for 15-20 minutes everyday. Super easy.

To keep track of your food, download FitnessPal and keep track. Super easy.

We carry around our phones everywhere so we can all certainly do this.
