Are You Making THIS Common Workout Mistake?

January 15th, 2016 | Healthcare, Moving

 

We are super excited to introduce to you our dear friend, Mateo Daniel. He is truly the epitome of “The Playful Warrior”. He brings so much love and energy to everyone he meets and has reminded us of the importance of PLAY in our lives and for our health! I used to think playing was for kiddos and those lucky people that had the luxury of extra time on their hands…now I realize how important it is for us all to PLAY! Life is so much more fun this way!

We love Mateo’s perspective on life, play and movement. Check out the article below!

Obesogens… Obese-o-what?

October 19th, 2015 | Eating, Living

 

Obesogens …Obese-o-what?

Endocrine disruptors, also known as “OBESOGENS”, are lurking all around us and may be a key factor in making America FAT and SICK.  As you may realize, obesity is an epidemic and chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes continue to escalate.

So…what role do obesogens play?

Obesogens are environmental toxins found in food, water, insecticides, plastics, cleaning products, cosmetics, etc. that negatively affect metabolism and may predispose some to weight gain. They mimic our own hormones and confuse or disrupt natural hormone production.

5 Hidden Causes That Could Be Making You Fat: Part 1

September 28th, 2015 | Healthcare, Living, Practical Living

 

If you are having trouble shedding those extra pounds and the scale just won’t budge….I recommend turning your focus towards these 5 often overlooked factors that could be secretly sabotaging your weight loss goals.

Yes…diet and exercise are key components in losing weight, having a rockin’ body and feeling awesome. But…there is much more to the equation that people don’t realize.  Many people dial in their nutrition using a Paleo, whole-food approach and lose tons of weight, and others lose some weight…but not as much as they hoped for. And for those people…there are likely other factors holding you back.

This may be just the information you need to squeeze into that stunning, black dress you’ve been avoiding because it’s a little too snug and exposes your lumps, bumps and rolls OR give you the confidence to strut your stuff in that sexy bikini you bought as an incentive to lose weight (and is currently buried in the bottom of your underwear drawer).

Wouldn’t that be awesome!

What’s even more awesome is that all these factors…if addressed and improved upon…not only help with weight loss, but also help with improved overall health, well-being and disease prevention!!

5 Hidden Causes That Could Be Making You Fat:

1) Low Vitamin D Levels

2) Poor Gut Health

3) Obesogens…Obese-o-what?

4) GMO…OMG!

5) Stress: The Muffin Top Monster

We are going to start this week looking at how Low Vitamin D Levels may be associated with weight gain and will cover the rest of the 4 in upcoming posts.

“My name is Janice D. I am 62 years young. I live in Texas City, Texas.

One day I was given the opportunity to change my lifestyle choices. Paleo, along with Drs. Chad & Brenda came into my life.

I am a diabetic with a little neuropathy and high sugars. I weighed 253 pounds. I used to eat anything and everything anytime that I wanted. I would always tell myself “tomorrow will be different”. At one point I truly thought there would be no tomorrow so, “so what”.

Too embarrassed to take pictures but tired enough to try Paleo, somehow I acquired a different mindset about food, eating and exercising. Now, I didn’t get this way overnight and I was certainly not going to get better overnight. It has been 30 glorious days for me.

I weighed in, no topped out, at 253. I now weigh 235. My clothes look and feel different. People i know are noticing, my husband is whistling at me. And the support, WOW. This is amazing to me.

It is not only a 30 day challenge for me, it is going to be 365 day challenge, one day at a time. I am at my 30th day. I am not where I would like to be but I am not where I used to be.

I am loving where I am for now. I haven’t felt this good about myself in years.

I want to thank all the members for their support as well. Dr. Chad and Dr. Brenda, please keep helping people. It is truly your callings. God bless you and thank you much.”
