  • My Personal Natural Cold and Flu Prevention and Treatment Plan

    My Personal Natural Cold and Flu Prevention and Treatment Plan

    It's that time of the year. Many are getting colds or have already had one. It's very hard for me to comprehend that the people I talk to don't seem to be very interested in not only preventing getting sick but also once they get early symptoms treating those symptoms asap. When friends, family, and even clients tell me they are getting a cold. My response is "are you taking anything for it?" Their response usually is "no" "like what?" or something like "Nyquil or just a decongestant." ~Those things might temporary mask your symptoms but they won't help you prevent or fight the cold off. Obviously, fixing your gut health (digestive system) is crucial for immune system and ....

    3 Reasons Most Women Over 50 Unknowingly Kill Their Metabolisms, and How To Recover Like a Champ!

    3 Reasons Most Women Over 50 Unknowingly Kill Their Metabolisms, and How To Recover Like a Champ! Reason 1) Not Eating Enough My clients always think I am crazy after sitting down with them and then telling them they are not eating enough to lose weight. I cannot blame them for being doubtful after our society has been telling them daily that to lose weight you must eat less, not more. However, what most fail to realize is that eating less food can slow down your metabolism and put your body into starvation mode. Metabolism, in simple terms, is the speed in which your body burns through food. So, eating more can increase it, and eating less will almost always slow it down. ....

    Real Results Fitness in Rockford MI- The 6 Fitness and Nutrition Mistakes Most Make in January!

    Here are the fitness and nutrition mistakes most people will make in the first 2 weeks of January and beyond.

    1. Going On A Fad Diet
    Every New Year comes and people seem to start a diet. Whether it’s an extreme fad diet like detoxing your body, eating only soup or crackers or doing something that restricts calories like Keto, Weight Watchers, or South Beach. Following a “DIET” is a flawed approach. Most people fail to realize after all these years that any diet that restricts calories, or certain foods is doomed for failure! “BUT it worked for me before David! I lost 25 pounds on the Weight Watchers program.” My answer is well if it worked ....

  • Halloween is when the Holiday weight gain really starts!

    Halloween is when the Holiday weight gain really starts!

    Did You Know Halloween is when the Holiday weight gain really starts? Most people put the emphasis on Thanksgiving and Christmas along with New Year’s, but the weight gain challenge actually begins right when the eating festivities begin. Halloween is a time of many candies and treats, but it needn’t be a time of expanding waist lines. The overindulgence of sweets during Halloween often leads to poor food choices following the holiday. The holidays should not be used as an excuse to eat poorly and thusly gain weight. The candy and other treats are still lingering around the house after the holiday is over, encouraging bad eating beyond just the one day. This behavior can ....

    Another Big Reason Diet Pop Could Be Making You Fat!

    I recently wrote a blog post and asked the question “Is Your Diet Pop Making You Fat?” You can read that post here: Diet Pop Making You Fat? ~For as long as us humans have lived on Earth, we have been eating foods that taste sweet, like honey and sugar cane. So, your brain has developed a conditioned response in reaction to eating something sweet. It is called the Cephalic Phase Insulin Response (CPIR), and it’s responsible for the fat-storing effects of diet beverages, including diet sodas, diet tea, coffee, energy drinks, sports drinks, and flavored waters. This adaptation in us humans is a reaction to the eating of sweet-tasting foods. The body ....

    PERSONAL TRAINER IN ROCKFORD MI- Do You Just Want To Get Your Butt Kicked!?

    DO YOU JUST WANT TO GET YOUR BUTT KICKED? If you are looking for an effective and consistent CHANGE in your body and lifestyle then you need to stop looking for just the hardest workout in town. The difficulty of a workout alone is NEVER as important as the program as a whole. I can't tell you the number of people I have coached who thought if they weren't sore after every workout or they weren't nearly passing out or throwing up they weren't going to see results. Yet these same people usually came in over trained (too much exercise -usually cardio), and they were usually under eating or malnourished and because of this not seeing results. Or they hadn't done any form of ....
