Plus,  Four “Common Yet Dangerous” Oils You Should Never
Eat… If You Want to Heal, Beautify and Restore Your Body!

Nature has a way of providing for us in a perfect way all the things we need. Nothing that can be created and or simulated in a lab can even come close to the healing properties of nature.

Did you know that coconut is so high in healing qualities that it is referred to as “The Tree of Life”? Before World War II, people living in island countries, like the Philippines, consumed a diet that consisted mainly of rice, root crops, vegetables and an abundance of the ultra-healing superfood, the coconut.

The coconut is a “functional food” rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber – the essential nutritional building blocks for perfect health.

For generations, island people considered it “The Cure for All Illness” and consumed the meat, milk and coconut oil daily. Although this diet was high in saturated fat, Western conditions like diabetes, cancer and heart disease were virtually unheard of.

Filipinos and islanders were instead rewarded with a lovely youthful complexion, soft wrinkle-free skin, almost no skin cancer – even with excessive exposure to year round sun – and abundant good health.

The Four Unhealthy
“Healthy Oils” You Should Never Consume!

Decades ago when food processing first began, it became regular practice to alter that which nature provided. Thus began the era of “frankenfoods.”

Whole, nutritious natural foods that mostly came straight from the farm to the table were replaced by over-processed, refined and chemical laden, mass-produced convenience foods.

And fats were no different. Over four decades healthy sources of fats were replaced with vegetable oils that were thought to be “better-for-you.” We now know they’ve done more harm than good.

The following four are the worst offenders you should avoid at all costs:

  1. Canola Oil
  2. Cottonseed Oil
  3. Sawflower Oil
  4. Soybean Oil

I came across this “Special Report” that will explain why these are so bad for you and how they came to be used so freely.  I was so shocked to see this list of such widely used oils that are actually making us sick!

What a relief to also discover that one of my favorite “healthy fats” Coconut Oil, is GOOD FOR YOU! You probably had no idea that there are so many healthy uses for Coconut oil like I discovered in the same report I learned about the bad for you fats.

Coconut Oil will restore your health and reset your body!

When I discovered “The Coconut Oil Secret” and that it was nature’s #1 best healing superfood I had to learn more! I have used coconut oil for many things when it came to cooking but could it be possible there were other benefits to this fat? Other ways I could be using it to take full advantage of it’s healing properties?  Was I using the right kind of coconut oil or did it matter ? I discovered the answers in “The Coconut Oil Secret”  and boy was I surprised!

I found several reasons to use coconut oil on a daily basis that I did not know about and I will bet you didn’t either!

Did you know that coconut oil can offer the following benefits depending on how you use it and how much you use? :

  1. Metabolism Booster
  2. Thyroid Booster
  3. Protects and Beautifies Skin
  4. Healthy Brain Function and Restoration
  5. Fights Cancer
  6. Detoxifies
  7. Heart Health
  8. Controls Yeast in the Body and Mouth
  9. Is an Antifungal

These are just a few of the incredible uses for coconut oil. Remember not all coconut oil offers these benefits depending on how it is processed etc… You can learn everything you need to know about The Coconut Oil Secret here. I found it VERY useful . I can’t wait to add these tips to my regimen. :)

Beachbody Ultimate Reset Review Week 1 | Loving Yourself From the Inside Out

Week 1 Beachbody Ultimate Reset Review:

When I decided to FINALLY make the commitment to myself and my health to take 21 days to reset, cleanse, alkalize, and detox my body I knew it would not be the easiest thing for me. I believe that is why I have hesitated doing The Ultimate Reset for so long.  I mean 21 days is a long time when you LOVE food!

I guess I was under the impression that I would be starving!!! NOT TRUE…  I have felt full and satisfied for the most part. There have been moments where mentally I wanted to fulfill a craving or desire and I even caved once but I didn’t let that get me off track.

I told you I would keep it real with you so I will, good, bad , indifferent….

Pre Reset:

My Ultimate Reset program came in. Time to educate myself and plan for my first week.  I read the materials which I found to be very helpful. I looked over the contents of the program and found my promise bracelet that comes with EVERY Ultimate Reset program to help you remember the promise and commitment you have made to yourself and your health and loving yourself from the inside out.

I was a little overwhelmed by the whole thing and then I discovered a way that it all can be simplified while I was reading the manual and I must say this was VERY helpful and just what I needed.

I did have a hard time finding a shopping list but eventually did on the Beachbody Ultimate Reset Client Portal.  When looking for ingredients I was not able to find miso paste at any of my local stores so you may want to check ahead of time or order it from somewhere online because it is called for alot in this program. I opted to not use it since I couldn’t find it before I began my program.

The program recommend beginning on a Wednesday so that is what I did. March 2, 2016 is when I began. I recently had gotten my weight down to 236 lbs (my lowest in years) THEN I took some medication that skyrocketed my weight to 247 lbs in just a matter of days which was very discouraging BUT I did not let that detour me from my ultimate health and weightloss goal. Time to do this!

Day 1 The Ultimate Reset:

This day is all about getting into the Ultimate Reset Phase 1 week 1 routine. The hardest thing for me was just trying to remember to eat and take the assigned supplement at the right time BUT by day 2 I had it down! :)  You take your body weight and divide 2 and that is what you drink in ounces of water daily. You also add the Beachbody Ultimate Reset Mineralize to the water you drink. You will also be taking the Ultimate Reset Optimize 30 minutes before your meals. In the afternoon (before your snack) you will drink the Ultimate Reset Alkalinize which wasn’t the worst thing I have ever had but it does take some getting used to. Before dinner you add the Ultimate Reset Soothe to the regimen.  I was not hungry and I really enjoyed the food I got to eat. I had 2 eggs and spinach, and whole grain toast for breakfast and even for lunch since it was so easy and yummy. For dinner I had Genghis Grill with NO SAUCES just some of the basic seasonings and it was yummy! I felt fine on this day.

Day 2 Ultimate Reset:

Woke up feeling pretty good. Ready to start my routine. I ate the eggs and spinach again because I really loved it and it just was easier… You get to have eggs up till day 4 so I figured I would make my life easier and just go with that for breakfast and lunch each day till then.  Getting the swing of this now and drinking all of my water and adding the mineralize to my distilled water like it suggests.  I didn’t feel hungry this day.

Day 3 Ultimate Reset:

I woke up on this day feeling GREAT! I had dropped weight already (I know it was water but I’ll take it) I ate the same things as day 1 and 2 with dinner being just a bit different. I felt ok this day BUT this was the day I was really tempted and gave in to a craving I was having… That made me feel bad BUT I tried to not let it keep me off course the rest of my day.


On my way

Day 4 Ultimate Reset: 

This day I had oatmeal and fruit for breakfast. It tasted  so good. Later in the day I noticed I was feeling VERY moody and kinda cranky and just wanted to sleep. I began to wonder if I could REALLY do this program… BUT after battling with myself mentally and reminding myself why I choose to do the Ultimate Reset program I decided to keep going…

Day 5 Ultimate Reset:

This day I guess I felt a renewed sense of being able to accomplish this goal of mine BUT thinking to myself 21 days is SOOOOOOO LONG! LOL


Day 6 Ultimate Reset:

Went through my routine without a hitch! I prepped my lunch from leftover dinner from the day before . At this point I am having fruit fro breakfast the past couple of days since I can’t have eggs now.  Feeling good BUT I am having CRAZY cravings! I know that is part of this process and will go away. I had a headache later in the evening but I drank some water and it went away.

Day 7 Ultimate Reset:

This is the last day I get to have chicken or oatmeal…. UGH… LOL  Ready to move into the next phase of the program Phase 2 Week 2 of the Ultimate Reset. I went shopping today and again I plan to eat alot of the same things to make it easier for me to stick with. Phase 2 calls for beans, brown rice, sweet potatoes, fruit and veggies…. K.I.S.S.  Not alot of variety but I dont care at this point I am just literally counting down the days that I am done with this!!!  :)

All in all, I would say that this is NOT going to be an easy so program at the same time it is only as difficult and hard as you make it… You have to make sure you have the mindset to do this and that is why till now I hadn’t done it. I was not mentally and emotionally ready to do this for 21 days. Believe me you are going to battle your feelings,and your head during this process BUT I know without a doubt the results will be worth it in the end .




|How to Get a Free P90X Workout Program|

How to get a free P90x Workout program? I am sure you have scoured the internet for a FREE copy of Tony Horton’s P90X Extreme Training System. You might find some P90X bootleg copies somewhere, BUT they will never provide you with all the proper P90X tools you need to succeed and see results with P90X. Do you know what makes ordering an authentic copy of P90X worth every penny? It is the fact that when you order P90X (Click to order P90x)   from me or any other Team Beachbody Coach, you get our personal one on one health and fitness coaching and support for FREE! Yes, free…

You see, Beachbody hasn’t always offered a free personal coach with their workouts. Up until several years ago, there were not Team Beachbody coaches to offer you support. Carl Daikeler, CEO of Beachbody realized they were not helping people get healthy if people were just going to order the Beachbody workout programs and then never use them, or quit using them and get discouraged and give up! Carl considered adding more customer service reps and call centers to meet the need of the Beachbody customers but he didn’t feel like that was the level of support he wanted to offer. Carl noticed that in the Beachbody customer forums / online community that customers where actually helping and encouraging each other on their programs. This gave birth to the idea of creating what is now termed ” The Team Beachbody Coach”.

What is a Team Beachbody Coach? Well, it is someone who partners with Team Beachbody and an Independent Representative of the company. A home based business that rivals all other business opportunities. Why is this? Well, Beachbody was an established and highly successful Television Infomercial company bringing the best health and fitness products to your living room via TV for years before they ever saw a need to add the home based business opportunity into the mix. You see the products came first, not the biz op. Most companies come up with a home business idea or home business model and then they try to plug a product into that business model… Do you see anything wrong with that? Hmmm… (wheels in my head turning)

Beachbody spends millions of dollars a year marketing their highly sought after and extremely popular health and fitness products and programs (P90X, Insanity, 21 Day fix, Turbo Fire, T25, etc…) Then, when those people pick up a phone and order from those infomercials they are given a FREE Team Beachbody coach to help them reach their goals and stick with the program the chose. What does that mean for qualified Team Beachbody Coaches? FREE CUSTOMERS from the company. With thousands of people ordering from Beachbody infomercials a day, that is a pretty lucrative incentive to say the least.

So, I know you came here to get a free copy of P90x so let me tell you how you can do that. You see that banner below? Yes, that one… 😉 Click on that banner. You will be entered in our monthly drawing for a FREE P90X  workout program just for checking it out. Besides, you have nothing to lose by checking it out. It could be the click that changed your life forever. Click on the banner now and get in the drawing for P90X! You just might win! :)

tony fed TBB Challenge winner januaryI felt inspired to do a series of stories about people who have all lost weight 30 lbs or more to be exact and how they did it. What inspired this change in them and how they got there and how it has transformed their lives in general.

My first story is about a friend and fellow colleague of mine  Team Beachbody Coach Tony Federico. When I met Tony he was already on his journey and had lost a few lbs and had just become a Beachbody Coach. We met at one of Tony Horton’s P90X live workouts here in Dallas. That would become one of many workouts that Tony and I would do together as the years passed.

tony before1tony before 3Tony before2

Tony has been an inspiration and support to me all along my journey and I hope his story will motivate and inspire you as well. Tony also won $1000 dollars in the Team Beachbody Challenge by simply sharing his before and after pictures and story (I had been telling him to do this for years) I recently interviewed Tony and asked him a series of questions about his health and weight loss transformation and here is what he had to say…

Tony in jeans

1. Tell me a little about you as a person. “I’m 5’8” I’m 41 , married with 2 kids , I am an IT professional, and a Team Beachbody Coach. I currently live in Plano, TX”

2. How much did you weigh and how much did you lose? “I weighed 211 pounds at my heaviest. I lost 51 pounds and went from a size 36 inch waist to a 31 inch waist

3.When did you become overweight? “I have always been heavy even while in the Marines.  I was at the high end the of the weight range but just within regulation. After leaving the Marines and not being active any longer the weight started coming on.”

4. What kind of relationship with food have you had throughout your life? “If I was hungry I ate. I would get whatever was available. I would eat till I was full. And I drank a lot of beer”

5. Where you ever active before gaining the weight? “I would only do what I had to in the Marines. I never worked out just because I wanted to.”

6. What was the pivotal moment you knew you wanted and needed to lose weight? ” I was sitting in my air conditioned house in the middle of the summer watching TV and started to sweat, and I realized this wasn’t right.”

7. What do you feel contributed to your being overweight? “Eating what ever I wanted whenever I wanted, and lack of physical activity I was very sedentary and I liked it!”

8. How did you lose your weight? “I lost my weight thru exercise and eating right … I started with weight watchers and lost some weight. Then I started eating again,  and couldn’t stick to it, and I still wasn’t moving.  After that I gained about 23 lbs.  I decided to try a workout program that I saw on TV that a friend was using as well called P90X by Tony Horton. P90X implemented exercise and a meal plan.  I also decided to drink Shakeology which was suggested in the P90x program. I used a lot of the P90x supplements, P90X protein bars, and P90X recovery drinks.  It was just easier for me to get all of my stuff from one place online than to hunt it down! I was also sold on it because the same company who made the program also made the supplements so I knew they would all work together!”

9. What lifestyle changes had to be made for you to succeed? ” I cut out all “POP”  I cut out all alcohol I don’t eat sweets. I made a conscious effort to eat clean. I also had the support of my wife who made sure we as a family made a choice to do this. I also had a Beachbody coach who was there when I needed him.  I also think that my decision to become a Beachbody coach was a great decision for many reasons because I initially became a coach for the discount on my P90X products and supplements. I have learned that It is so much more to me than that now.”

10. How long did it take you to lose your weight? “It took me maybe a year.”

11. What was the most important thing that kept you on track on your journey? “My before pics and my Facebook profile… I had accountability to the public there!”

12. During your journey have you ever fallen off the wagon? “No I  am T-Fed! But seriously of course I have . I would go out with my friends and drink a little and eat something I wasn’t supposed too and then felt guilty about it the next day.  I don’t slip up as often anymore cause I know how I will feel the next day and I will have wasted all the work fora few drinks and some fatty fat food!”

13. What one piece of advice would you give someone who wanted to lose weight? “Don’t give up, take it one day at a time. It is not a sprint it is a marathon.”

14. Do you have before and after pics? “Yes”

15. Which Beachbody Programs have you used? “I have used and still use P90X, P90X2 , Insanity, T25 P90x3″

Shakeology Ingredient Magazine Article

shakeologycomparisonHello Boys and Girls!

In May of 2011 a very well known talk show host and owner and creator of a world famous Magazine did an 11 page article on Shakeology and its ingredients and the co-creator of this incredible SUPER FOOD! I can not post the name of the VERY WEALTHY and FAMOUS African American woman who is a talk show host and Magazine creator BUT you can read the entire article here >>> Click Here

The article was being written with the journalist on location while this video was being filmed >>> Click Here

Together these two sources of information are a compelling reason to be drinking Shakeology daily. I know that when I am consistent and drinking Shakeology once a day I NEVER get sick and I have incredible energy and I lose weight as well. It also curbs my cravings and my appetite as well.

Then I saw this video with 100 doctors on record endorsing  Shakeology’s health benefits then I knew I had to be doing something right! These Shakeology Doctors Reviews say it all! Click here to see what 100 doctors said about Shakeology >>> Click Here

I was recently participating in a discussion in a linkedin group and we were discussing the cost to eat healthy… I was surprised how many people could not see the value and savings in a meal that cost about $4 a meal packed full of superfoods that are indeed life saving yet they are ok with continuing to pay a doctor for their ill health and prescription meds. I know of so many people that have been able to come off of their Meds and or reverse illness and or NEVER get sick anymore.

I was one of those people! I went for 2 years with no illness until I got lazy about drinking my shake after my husband and mother passed away in 2011. I have recently started using it daily on a regular basis. I have learned my lesson the hard way! Shakeology is not something I should be compromising on when it comes to my health!

After just a few days of using Shakeology you notice a change. After 30 days of using Shakeology you are like, yeah there is something awesome about this and how it makes me feel. After 90 days of using Shakeology you will know that it is something you must not be without as you look and feel better than you ever had and people start to notice it in you!

When I first started using Shakeology years ago I conducted a Shakeology experiment to see if it was all they said it was and then I posted here on my blog… If you would like to read those posts you can find them here  on my blog at the bottom of this page. :)

So, knowing what you know now, why haven’t you ordered yours yet?
