Start Your Engines

There are so many messages.

The latest fad diets can send you down unhealthy rabbit trails.

If it sounds too good to be true, I will click on it.

Self-help gurus are everywhere.

Ted Talks. Too Much.

This is what I know, for sure (about dieting, anyway). Don’t do it. A “diet” takes away food … and therefore nutrition.

We need to add nutrition to lose weight and stay healthy. So, in keeping with my “Three Little Words” mantra:

  1. Protein is key.

  2. Carbs are fuel.

  3. Drink more water.

  4. Fruits and Vegetables.

  5. Oils are essential.

  6. Serving size matters.

  7. Walk it out.

  8. Pace your race.

  9. I can help.

I could go on and on, and I will, but for today give these TLW’s top priority. Start your engines.

Get started somewhere. I encourage you to up your protein. Did you know you should have 20-40 grams of protein every 3 to 4 hours … all day. I listened to this podcast yesterday and sketched out a protein pacing regime which is actually quite simple and doable. Start packing in the protein!

I’m such a fan of simple … it’s why I LOVE my Isagenix. I feel better…mind, body, and soul. I let Isagenix do the heavy lifting and the research. Ya gotta trust some things to the experts. What has sold me is the mental clarity, convenience, and weight loss! In that order! Knowing and sticking to the plan has freed my time to concentrate on my soul goals.

I’m not going to stalk you or turn every conversation to weight loss, but wanted to share this part of my story today. Take it and do with it what you will.

Ladies and gentlemen … start your engines.
