When you say “I am too busy for breakfast?” OR  “I am not hungry early in the morning?”  are you then reaching for the convenience of a bar, shake or stop n go / frozen sandwich to make ends meet with your time and your money?

Breakfast is one of the most essential meals of the day but one of the easiest to overlook in a busy schedule.  A  great breakfast allows your body to use your food as fuel rather than store it for the next time you “might” make it available.  We have several answers for the challenges of time, convenience and most importantly – FLAVOR!

Proof is in the Pudding (a little food humor) …. Meet Janice, 2015 Participant Hi everyone:  I wanted to say a little bit about R.E.A.L. and my experience with the program.  First I want to express how great Selina and Billy are, and how sincerely concerned they are about the people in their program.  Their personal interest in my success was motivating.  They stuck with me even while I processed some tough stuff, they never let me down, right there for me everyday.  I felt better about myself and became hopeful, something I have struggled with for 10 years.  I never got that hands on interest from a food program, a diet or a doctor, nor a trainer at a gym.  I’ve been through all of those programs.  My problem was I was “stuck”.  I lost control of my life over time, being depressed and discouraged over lost jobs,bad jobs and bosses.  Then my parents became ill and I left my self behind to take care of their needs.  I had acquired knowledge about food and health and had always exercised and been active in the past, but nothing I was trying was working, I was thankful that I had at least stopped gaining, even if I could not lose weight.  I was so excited to learn about the program, that it offered the same ideas that I already believed in but couldn’t get to work for me.  REAL helped me identify my blocks, really recognize and admit to the problems.  I realized where and why I had gotten off track and with help and suggestions found a path back to more healthy living.   I had a chance to look  and find where I could change and make healthier choices.  Making my “goals” a priority and making conscious choices to make the changes was big for me, not letting habits control me.  Changing my focus, changing my thoughts, I began to experience positive expectation.  With the new view can a new outlook.  I took a good look at my negative self judgement and realized it was keeping me from enjoying life.  With this shift to taking responsibility for my self and taking control of my life again, some stress started melting away, and so have the unwanted pounds, the acid reflux, and the high blood pressure.  It is a journey, but I know I am well on my way and excited about what’s coming for me next health wise, weight wise and in all of...

5 Smart Ways to Shop for a Weight Loss Program

Posted by on Jan 10, 2017 in Wellness | Comments Off on 5 Smart Ways to Shop for a Weight Loss Program

5 Smart Ways to Shop for a Weight Loss Program

As the medical community becomes a big player in the reported   $50 Billion Dollar Weight Loss industry,  individuals are more confused than ever where to turn to when seeking out a weight loss solution.  Regardless of the almost  $30 Billion Dollar increase since 2012, the success rates don’t seem to be getting any better. Take into account the consistent reporting through the years that only 5% of individuals actually maintain success and even more astonishing recent research showing that the same may hold true for those that put their health at risk with  surgical interventions, one might begin to wonder if it isn’t a losing battle. Without before and after images that distort the truth, without a miracle cure to your problems and most importantly without asking you to endure months of rigorous exercise, I would like to share 5 Smart Ways to Shop for a Weight Loss Program. First let’s be clear. For almost a decade and a half I struggled with weight, at one point in my life weighing a whopping 248# For approximately the last decade, I have become one of the 5% that has been able to maintain success I am not exactly where I want to be; but it is by choice, I am healthy, and I continue to work at healthy living every day I haven’t found the secret, but I have found the solution and share it with others as a Wellness Coach There is no shortcut, no secret and definitely no magic pill, it begins with YOU and what YOU ARE WILLING TO DO  If you want success, finding what is right for you is a bit of a process.  So let’s begin. Investigate the results Remember, weight loss is a big dollar business so everyone is competing to entice you with the most amazing results you have ever seen.  Don’t be blinded by eagerness for great loss, in reality order to work it most likely will require work from you.  SEO and Internet companies are paid to push the information to the top of the search so be certain to look beyond the initial results in Google for your answers.  At times the best places to go are consumer reports, lawsuit searches and bloggers who want to share the truth about their misconceptions. Make sure you are ready for the Investment Do you really know what you have gotten yourself into and more importantly what will be needed to maintain the end result?  Are you ready for the commitment?  It isn’t just about finances.  It is a time investment.  The last thing you want to do when embarking on a weight loss journey is to set yourself up to feed the negative emotions that brought you to the decision for change.  Be fully informed, financially, physically and mentally for the undertaking.  Instead of asking, “How much weight can I lose?”, ask “What will it take to keep it off?”  There is nothing worse than remembering a success you once had and then returning to the “fat clothes” you kept just in case.  (by the way, if they are too big, throw them out.  If done right, you shouldn’t need them again anyway 😉 Understand the commitment in comparison to the reality of your life schedule The latest programs are offering results in as little as 21 days.  Seems simple enough right?  Before you sign on, take the time to really examine your calendar, your work schedule, your family calendar and identify any obstacles to being able to commit 100% to the program.  After all the assumption is that you want the amazing results in the photo, correct?  Most programs that delineate activity and restrictions require just that and more to get those results. Create realistic expectations Once you have done the first three steps, it is a good time to “get real” with yourself.  What are you willing to commit to, what is going to be an obstacle for you and what are you actually expecting to get out of the program?  If you are only looking for weight loss numbers,...
