Unscheduled Nutrition Detours

15 Sep

detour

People often think that in order to reach their nutrition or fitness goals they have to be perfect all the time.  Depending on your goal timeline this may not be necessarily true.

The trick is to get away from any downward spiral ASAP. You’ve got to get right back on the wagon right where you fell off and for most of us that’s only one to two healthy meals away. 

The biggest mistake anyone can make is throwing in the towel. One bad meal, or a few bad foods, are no reason to give up on a lifestyle of healthy eating.

Every once in a while, after long durations, it can actually serve as a much needed break from your regular routine and may even help to keep your metabolism elevated.

Here are some tips that will get you back on track and feeling back to your normal or to begin a healthier nutritional outlook faster than you can say “Burrito Friday.”

1. Eliminate wheat and dairy for 2-3 days after the incident.  Wheat and dairy are the two most inflammatory foods that cause bloating in most people. Not to mention, when people overeat, it is usually on wheat and dairy foods such as cookies, cakes, ice cream, pasta, bread, etc.

2. Drink tons of water! Of course, this rule is applies all the time, but after a “binge,” water is even more important. You may also want to add a few squeezes of fresh lemon in for the “detoxifying” effects. Fresh lemon helps to cleanse the liver, and a clean liver will assist in your weight loss efforts.

3. Add in some extra walking.  Just adding in an extra 20 minutes of walking for the next few days can get you feeling back on track. Take a trip to the mall, do some laps around the place, people watch, see what’s on sale, and burn calories all at the same time. Just run past the ice cream, chocolate, pretzel and Cinnamon roll shops!

My name is Jacki, and I am a foodaholic!

14 Aug

Jackie Priester 8.14.15Here is Jacki’s & her husband’s story:

“SO MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN ASKING ME TO SHARE MY STORY…

Here it goes: (please be nice)

My name is Jacki, and I am a foodaholic!

This is very hard for me. I really never wanted to share my PICTURE and story because I was ashamed at how I looked and what I have been doing to my body over the years.

I suffer from quite a few health problems, including Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Migraines, IBS, Seizures, Menopause, Depression, Herniated disks in my neck and back from a bad car accident 24 years ago and Arthritis, to name a few. I have been steadily gaining weight for the last 12 years because I LOVE to eat and can no longer exercise or be as active as I once was before the health problems seemed to take over my life.

About 2 years ago, I saw some posts on Facebook about Skinny Fiber. It is a weight loss supplement that does so much more for me then just helping me lose weight. I checked it out and found it was all natural and gluten free (which is important with my health issues). I saved for it so I could buy the buy 3 get 3 free deal and do the 90 day challenge with my hubby. My hubby lost 20 pounds in the first 90 day challenge and I lost 13. We both felt so much better taking Skinny Fiber, that I ordered more and became a distributor so I can help others like myself get healthier!”

“Skinny Fiber has helped my husband go from migraine headaches EVERYDAY, to 3 in the last year! His cholesterol is normal now, in fact his doctor told him his blood tests came back better then he has seen in years!! He has more energy and feels better. He tells me he will NEVER stop taking it because he feels so much better!

Skinny Fiber has eliminated my migraines and IBS!! It has helped me with my Fibromyalgia and arthritis pain, hot flashes and with my depression (which is really BIG for me, since I am allergic to all anti-depressants). I have more energy and I feel so much better. I used to have terrible cravings a lot, mostly at night after 8 pm. Skinny Fiber has helped me eliminate those cravings! I rarely eat chocolate and junk anymore. I just don’t crave them. It took me a while, while on Skinny Fiber, to get to that point.

Skinny Fiber is all natural and gluten free with NO STIMULANTS! I love it! I can take it and not worry about it giving me seizures!

If you have been thinking about ordering, please DO! It has helped me and so many people! It has a 30 day money back guarantee on 1 bottle and a 90 day money back guarantee on our multi pak specials. We have a buy 2 bottles get one free and a buy 3 get 3 free special right now! Thank you for listening!  Have a wonderful day everyone! smile Jacki”

5 Things Apple Cider Vinegar Could Help With

Apple Cider Vinegar

5 Things Apple Cider Vinegar Could Help With

If it’s not there already, apple cider vinegar deserves a home in your kitchen cupboard. It’s rich in vitamins E, A, and P and magnesium, iron, calcium — the list goes on and on. If the vitamins and minerals alone are not enough reason to have you hooked, here are five reasons you should always have apple cider vinegar on hand.

1. Support weight loss: If you’re looking to shed a few pounds, it’s time to start using apple cider vinegar. Studies have shown that vinegar may help keep you from feeling hungry by slowing stomach emptying; it also lowers the glycemic index of high-carb foods like pasta, meaning it can help you feel fuller longer by slowing the release of glucose into your bloodstream.

2. Improve digestion: The pectin in apple cider vinegar has been known to move things along when bellies get backed up. Up your fiber intake with a green salad with plenty of roughage topped off with this honey apple cider vinaigrette to improve your digestion situation.

3. Zap warts: This may come as a surprise, but soaking a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and securing it on a pesky wart with medical tape can get rid of it quickly and naturally. Keep this in mind before you immediately call your dermatologist next time!

4. Add a pep to your step: Apple cider vinegar is also credited with improving energy levels. If you’re cutting out caffeine at work, just a few tablespoons of ACV mixed with a full glass of water can keep you from feeling cloudy and get you back to work.

5. Boost immunity: When you’re adding that many healthy vitamins and minerals to your system, it’s going to help your immune system ward off illness. If you’re already sick and in need of a little help, drink hot apple cider vinegar brew that combines cayenne, lemon, and honey, which will help open up your sinuses and replenish your body with the minerals it needs to recoup.
