Think Before You Eat


We all do it every now and then – run to the vending machine after a disagreement with a boss or co-worker, stuff ourselves with ice cream when we’re depressed, have an extra helping of cake to celebrate a job promotion, or sneak a bite in the middle of the night when something’s bothering us. Yes, food is celebratory and comforting, and it’s perfectly okay to indulge every once in a while. But if you frequently use food to manage your emotions, you won’t be as successful in losing weight and keeping it off. Food is only a short-term fix and can actually intensify the emotion. For example, if you had a bad day at work and responded by eating a bag of chips, you might feel depressed and guilty once you realized that you ate the whole bag. On top of that, you might be fearful of adding more inches to your waistline.

Evaluating Your Emotions

If emotional eating is a challenge for you, the first step is to identify what emotion your feeling. Once you’ve identified the emotion, ask yourself if food will really help, what you really need, and what you could do differently at the moment.

The next time you find yourself reaching for that bag of chips (without feeling hungry), consider the following:

  • Relax and take a couple of deep breaths. Allow yourself to feel the emotion.
  • Write down your thoughts in your journal. Be sure to identify the specific emotion you’re feeling, what you need, and what you can do differently if your need involves food.
  • Take a power walk or engage in your favorite physical activity. This will help clear your head and get things into perspective. Studies also show that physical activity helps decrease feelings of anxiety, depression, and irritability.
  • Call a friend. Sometimes all you need is a good venting session.
  • Grab you iPod, your smart phone, or other device and listen to your favorite songs.
  • Sometimes emotional eating is a deep-rooted problem and may require the help from a professional. If needed, seek counseling.

Other Eating Triggers

In addition to emotional triggers, many of us are susceptible to situational triggers. For example, maybe you have a tendency to buy popcorn when you go to the movie theater just because its smells so good! To be successful at losing weight, it’s important to recognize these situational triggers and to address them accordingly. Try using these strategies:

  • Identify your triggers. Keep track of the times you overeat. Look for patterns of when, where, and what promoted you to eat.
  • Evaluate the damage. Estimate how many calories you consumed. By keeping count of your calorie intake, you might be more careful the next time you feel tempted to eat out of habit.
  • Determine the reason for the trigger. Then find a better way to reason with yourself the next time that trigger presents itself. For example, if you skip the popcorn, you’ll be saving yourself some money.
  • Focus on dealing with one trigger at a time and start with the easier one first.

Muscle up your metabolism


Want to burn more calories at rest and even when you’re sleeping? Want to improve your muscle strength and power? How about strengthening your bones, improving your posture and even making those fun activities like playing golf or tennis more enjoyable? That’s what you get when you engage in resistance training also known as weight training or strength training. It’s a great addition to your fitness program because it helps build muscle, and the more muscle you have the more calories you burn. So, along with aerobic workouts that strengthen your cardiovascular system, burn fat and work some of the large muscles in your lower body, resistance training increases your metabolic rate and challenges all the major muscle groups including those in the chest, arms, back and abdomen. And it doesn’t require a fancy gym membership. You can do this at home and here’s how.

Warming Up

Before starting anything, it’s a good idea to spend 10-15 minutes warming up. Do some light aerobic and deep breathing exercises. Take a quick walk or jog around the block. If you have stairs, use them. The point is to increase your heart rate and blood flow to your muscles, which in turn will make your muscle tissues more pliable and less prone to injury while exercising.

Push Ups
What you need: Floor, wall, or a chair

Push ups are great for strengthening various muscles in your upper body, including the pectoralis (chest muscles), triceps (backside of upper arm), and deltoids (shoulder). They also help tone the core muscles. The proper way to do a push up is to elevate yourself horizontally with your arms completely extended, back straight, and toes on the floor. Keep your hands slightly more than shoulder-width apart and tighten your abdominal muscles. Inhale as you go down and stop when your elbows are at a 90 degree angle. Exhale as you go back up. If you’re a beginner, try doing this against the wall or with your knees bent. To kick it up a notch, put your feet up on a stable chair. This will add more weight for your body to lift and will help strengthen your arms and core even more.

Seated Rows
What you need: Piece of rubber tubing or an elastic band

Who says you need fancy T-bars and row machines that swivel and glide? Rubber tubing and elastic bands work just as effectively in strengthening your lateral muscles. Sitting on the floor with your legs extended, wrap a piece of rubber tubing or an elastic band behind the soles of your feet. Squeeze your shoulder blades together and pull the tube or band toward you while keeping your back straight. When you finish, your elbows should be behind your back. Return to your starting position.

Triceps Dips
What you need: A sturdy chair

To start, stabilize a chair against a wall so that it doesn’t slide. Place the palms of your hands on the chair and scoot yourself off of the edge. Make sure your feet are planted firmly on the ground at about hip-width apart. Lower your body until your elbows are at a 90 degree angle. Slowly push yourself back up. You could also do this outside at a park bench. Or, if you wish, at your kid’s soccer practice.

Shoulder Raises
What you need: A can of soup

If you don’t have dumbbells, head to the pantry and grab a can of soup or something with weight. With your feet shoulder-width apart and posture straight, raise your arms so that they are parallel to the floor. Hold it there for a couple of seconds and slowly bring them back down. Repeat. This will help get your deltoids nice and firm.

Biceps Curls
What you need: A filled grocery bag

You’ve probably done some version of this while hauling as many grocery bags from your car to the house as you can. Fill a recyclable shopping bag with some cans and fruits to your desired weight. Tuck your arm and elbow in by your side. Lift the shopping bag toward your shoulder with your palm facing you. Slowly return your hand down to your side and repeat. After a couple repetitions, switch to the other arm. Or, fill two shopping bags and alternate.

Abdominal Crunches
What you need: A yoga mat

If done correctly, crunches can be highly effective in toning up your rectus abdominus (the six-pack area), your obliques, and your traverse abdominus. Lie down with your back flat on the floor and your knees bent.  (Avoid anchoring your feet under a couch as this will activate the hip flexors and take the focus away from your abs.) Hold your hands wherever you feel comfortable-be it the back of your head or across your chest. Raise your head and chest toward the ceiling and hold it there for a couple of seconds. Go back down slowly and repeat. Tip: Keep your head and neck in line with the spine and take couple breaths in and out while you’re squeezing your abs at the top. This will help the deeper muscle fibers relax and contract.

  • It’s always a good idea to check in with your doctor before starting any new exercise regimen, especially if you have a health conditions, like heart disease or diabetes.
  • Remember to work each muscle group at least once. This will help develop balance and tone among all muscle groups.
  • Try not to exercise the same muscles several days in a row. Give yourself a day or two of rest in between so your muscles have time to recover.
  • Log how many repetitions you do and approximately how much weight you use each time you work out to help you determine when it’s time to increase the weight or do more or less repetitions.

Why Supplement


March is National Nutrition Month!

Americans are some of the most overfed and yet undernourished people on the planet, and it shows.

The United States ranks 40th in the developed world for life expectancy even though we spend far more per person on health care than any other country. A new study from the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine says that the life-expectancy gap between the US and other developed countries is only getting larger.

Shocked? We should be!

Proper nutrition and healthy lifestyle plays an important role in helping prevent many major diseases (like heart disease, diabetes and even cancer), but getting proper nutrition in our modern world can be a challenge.

Let’s take a look:

  • Our bodies cannot produce many of the nutrients we need, so they must be found in the food we eat and the supplements we take every day. Additionally, if the food we are eating is lacking nutrients, then supplementing can really be beneficial in staying healthy.
  • Most people say that they eat well, but research shows that 80 percent of Americans are not eating enough servings of fruits and vegetables.i We are also not getting enough Omega- 3 oils (EPA/DHA), antioxidants, B vitamins or a host of other nutrients our bodies need.
  • The nutritional content of our food has changed. A 2004 study of common crops showed a decline in the nutrient content between 6 and 38 percent over the past 50 years.
  • The amount of processed food that we eat has been on a steady climb ever since the invention of the refrigerator. Today, most of us eat more processed food than non-processed food. Convenience has become more prized than quality.
  • Our high stress and fast paced lives increases our needs for nutrients, especially the B vitamins.
  • The world is a much more toxic place than it used to be. Our bodies are exposed to more pollutants and under more oxidative stress than ever before. We need optimum nutrition in order to help our bodies battle these stresses.

None of us are perfect, there are days when you might eat well, but then days when you don’t. A multivitamin, along with other key nutritional supplements can be the insurance policy you are looking for to fill in those nutritional gaps that may leave us vulnerable.

Portion Size 101

naturalnutritionIn a world where 21-ounce cans of soda containing 210 calories and 58 grams of sugar is considered medium size, figuring out what a “normal” portion looks like can be tricky. Even healthy foods can be taken out of proportion. How many servings of salad did you really put on your plate? And what do health experts mean when they recommend eating two servings of fish a week? Understanding what constitutes a “normal” portion size will help you cut back and take control.

How to Eyeball It

A good way to measure out normal portions is to size your food against commonly used objects. Here what one serving of the following looks like:

Breads, Cereals, and Grains

  • 1 slice of bread = size of an index card
  • 1 small roll = size of a yo-yo
  • 1 bagel = a [5 oz.] can of tuna
  • 1/2 cup of rice or pasta = enough to fill a cupcake liner

Fruits and Vegetables

  • 1 medium orange or apple = size of a tennis ball
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit = size of a large egg
  • 1 cup of green salad = size of an adult fist
  • 1 small potato = size of a computer mouse

Proteins (Meats and Nuts)

  • 1 oz. of nuts = size of a ping pong ball
  • 3 oz. of meat (beef, chicken, fish, pork) = size of a deck of cards
  • 2 tbs. of peanut butter = size of two tea bags


  • 1 cup of milk = [8 oz carton]
  • 1 scoop of fat free frozen yogurt = [1/2 a baseball]
  • 1 oz. of cheese = size of a pair of dice


  • 1 tsp. of butter or margarine = distance between the tip of your thumb to the first joint on your thumb

Tips On Becoming a Smarter Eater

Losing weight is not only about eating healthier, it’s about knowing how much to eat and learning when to resist getting seconds. Think about the following the next time you sit down to a meal or a snack:

  • Visualize what one serving of each of the foods you are about to eat looks like.
  • Make it a habit to read food labels.
  • When dining out, before you start eating, ask for a doggie bag and set half aside for later. This way, you won’t be tempted or feel obligated to eat the whole meal.
  • Avoid the all-you-can-eat buffets. Temptation is everywhere there.

Ways To Prevent Flu

sickinbedTalk about the flu – and ways to prevent flu – is in the news Big Time. It looks like a nasty case this year and the verdict is out as to whether the vaccine is doing its job. People are getting sick. Very sick. Some areas of the country are much worse than most.

New York’s governor declared a state public health emergency due to the flu outbreak:

breakingnewsfluIn hard-hit Boston, the emergency rooms are packed with flu patients and people are rushing to get vaccines.

Here’s a state-by-state snapshot of the flu this year:

What’s it like in your area? Between the flu, runny nose, a stomach virus that spreads quickly, and some intense upper respiratory viruses, our hometown has its fair share. Personally, I didn’t get the vaccine. But I am actively trying to prevent it.

Ways to Prevent Flu

We know the standard prevention measures you will find if you search how to prevent any contagious illness.  Wash your hands frequently, cough into your arm, drink liquids, get lots of rest, and stay away from other people. These are all good things to do.

The other thing you can do is to build your immune system so that it is strong enough to fight off invaders like the flu, colds, coughs, sore throats and other infections or viruses. One important way to build your immune system is also on the list above:  rest. When you get good sleep at night it has many health benefits, including a healthier immune system.

What I do all year long to keep my immune system strong is to take all-natural supplements. Just like you take a daily medication EVERY DAY so that it helps with the medical problem you have, it’s important to take your supplements every day to get the results you want.

Your cells are replicating every day. What you feed your cells determines your health. There are immune boosting supplements that can help make your immune system strong, and most have other health benefits as well. You will find more than what we talk about here. A few are zinc and garlic and various antibiotics. Let’s look at a few that I use all the time specifically for my immune system, and can give testimony that they help.

sick fluVitamin C

Your body can’t make or store Vitamin C. It has been called the “do-everything” nutrient and has health benefits in almost every part of your body. Vitamin C is a water soluble Vitamin – that’s the part that means your body won’t store it. So it is most beneficial to take a sustained release supplement that gets released into your body over time.

There is lots of scientific research about the immune building benefits of Vitamin C, and how it helps to increase production of infection-fighting white blood cells in your body, and also antibodies like interferon that coat the cell surfaces to help prevent viruses from entering your cells.

Vitamin D

In the last couple of years chances are you have heard lots about Vitamin D. That’s because doctors, through routine patient blood tests, are finding many people very low or deficient in this nutrient. It’s very hard to get enough through your diet, especially if your levels are already low.

Dr. Oz states that if there was one vitamin that he could push to every American, it would be Vitamin D. The more we use sunscreen, the more your body inhibits making Vitamin D, and also as we age we get less efficient converting Vitamin D. Your immune systems benefit when you use this vitamin because it activates genes that help you fight viruses like the flu. Vitamin D works in your respiratory cells to boost respiratory immunity, and also can help with the pain and misery associated with the flu by having an effect on inflammation.


Did you know that somewhere between 70 and 90% of your immune system is in your colon. Probiotics help colon health and immune system health. When you take probiotics it is essential that they are delivered LIVE to your colon, the only place they will be beneficial. Many probiotic brands can deliver at most 10% of what’s on the label.  The good news is that it’s so easy to take a tiny, triple encapsulated capsule that transports live beneficial bacteria safely through the acidic conditions of your stomach – all the way to your colon. And you get lots of digestive benefits as well.

From the Shaklee website:  Optiflora Probiotic uses a patented triple-layer encapsulation technology. Three layers of encapsulation protect live probiotics. Optiflora is a unique, two-product system (Optiflora Prebiotic Complex and Optiflora Probiotic Complex) that provides dietary support for the normal, healthy balance of intestinal microflora. It promotes colon health by supporting the growth of healthy microflora naturally found in the colon.* It also delivers guaranteed live probiotics Bifidobacterium longum and Lactobacillus acidophilus, along with the prebiotics FOS and inulin and provides gammatocopherol, a nutrient associated with colon health.*

Natural Interferon

Quite possibly the most potent immune building supplement is an herbal blend that will naturally increase interferon in your body. Scientists and medical communities have identified interferon as critical to healthy immune function.

NutriFeron from Shaklee is the only dietary supplement in the U.S. created by the discoverer of interferon that naturally increases the production of interferon in your body. What’s great is that there are no side effects like those associated with interferon medications. Nutriferon works at the cellular level – helping your cells be healthier so they can better resist all kinds of illnesses.

From the Shaklee website:  Contains MACH*, a patented blend of interferon-boosting plant extracts (500 mg) and a Shaklee exclusive. This proprietary blend of natural plant extracts is derived from pumpkin seeds, safflower flowers, plantago seeds, and Japanese honeysuckle flower buds, which have been clinically proven to support and stimulate the natural immune response process at the cellular level.*

Last.. but not least.

I can’t forget about Echinacea. This is an immune boosting herbal supplement that you don’t use every day. When you do feel something ‘coming on’, or you are directly exposed to an illness, or maybe you are unusually tired – which can signal that you are going to get sick or your body is trying to fight off something – this is when you take Echinacea.

It can help your body respond to seasonal challenges by giving your immune system what it needs to stay strong. To supercharge your immune system when you feel that first tickle, I take six tablets a day for five to seven days. I can’t speak for all brands because there is the issue of ingredient quality. You need the active part of the echinacea plant to get the best results. Another reason to choose your brand wisely!

Metabolism Makeover

in shape womenLosing weight doesn’t have to be an annual resolution. A new program with a key nutrient could be your secret to success – quite possibly the last weight loss program you’ll ever need. Knowing how to eat healthy to lose weight is half the battle.

Most weight-loss programs may help you lose weight, but it’s usually a combination of fat and muscle that you lose. When you lose muscle, along with the fat, your metabolism slows down and you don’t burn calories as efficiently.

The other thing about losing your muscle is that after your diet is over, it is very easy to gain the weight back again without muscle to help your metabolism burn those calories.

Scientists have discovered the benefits of a powerful nutrient that helps build muscle. Leucine, an essential amino acid that our bodies don’t produce naturally, helps maintain lean muscle mass.

Leucine helps you lose the right kind of weight:  nearly every pound you shed is fat so your metabolism can power on as the inches come off.

Leucine Metabolism BoosterTips To Boost Your Metabolism:

1-  Make it easy to lose weight and keep it off.

On conventional diets, up to 40% of weight loss may be muscle mass — and when you lose muscle your metabolism slows down. You burn fewer calories per day, so when you go off your diet, it is easier to regain the weight you’ve just lost. Leucine will signal your body to keep your muscle so you lose nearly all fat.

At the heart of Shaklee 180 is the amino acid leucine, which signals your body to keep muscle. Clinical study participants lost almost all of their weight from fat while retaining nearly all of their lean muscle — and they lost 4 inches around their waists and almost 3 inches from their hips, which is a reflection of fat loss.

2-  Throw away the scale and don’t worry about the numbers in terms of pounds.

We’ve all been there: You hit the gym and chow down on salad, yet the scale is barely moving. What’s the deal?  Don’t fret too much. The best kind of weight loss is when you’re losing fat — you’re getting leaner, which means your clothing size may shrink at a greater rate than your weight.

“When you keep muscle while losing body fat, the number on your scale may not decrease as fast as you would think. Losing fat will lead to a greater loss of inches — which is what you really want,” says Dr. Jamie McManus, M.D., FAAFP. “The other benefit to keeping muscle is that it keeps your metabolism strong which means you’re less likely to gain the weight back.”

Another reason to throw away the scale: Real changes happen over weeks and months (not hours and days), so let your favorite pair of jeans be your guide to gauging real progress.

3.  Be patient:  the goal is to lose weight the healthy way.

You see diets advertised as quick fat loss or fast weight loss, but are these types of programs sustainable? If you’re going to do the work of a weight loss program, isn’t the real goal to keep the weight off and enjoy your new body?

A safe and realistic goal is to lose an average of 1-2 pounds per week, so a typical weight loss in 90 days is about 15-20 pounds. You should weigh yourself no more than once per week — and don’t rely solely on the scale because losing body fat can result in rather dramatic loss of inches and transformation of your shape!

Remember, when you lose ALL FAT, instead of fat and inches, you will begin to see positive changes in how you look even before significant pounds come off the scale. That’s a good feeling and it’s sustainable since you’re holding on to your lean muscle that burns calories.

Pound for pound, muscles burn more calories than fat — even in your sleep. That’s why losing precious muscle on most conventional diets makes it easier to regain weight once you stop dieting.

And here are 4 more weight loss tips to try that Extreme Makeover veteran, Jacqui McCoy, uses to keep the pounds off:

1. Max your metabolism:  Do a quick 15-minute workout in the morning, whether it’s a job around the block or lunges in your bedroom. Get your metabolism up and going to start the day off right.

2. Anticipate snack attacks:  Always keep a healthy snack, such as raw almonds and Shaklee 180 snack bars, in your purse. It is important to always be prepared.

3. Veg out:  Once a week, pick a vegetable that you’ve never eaten before and prepare it for dinner. Trying new foods makes meals more exciting.

4. Get inspired:  Create an online or physical inspiration board that serves as a daily reminder of your biggest motivation for losing weight.

To learn about healthy meals to eat to lose weight that are powered by leucine to help you hold on to your lean muscle and burn more fat, consider leucine-rich foods such as legumes, egg whites, or try weight loss nutrition from the #1 Natural Nutrition Company in America:  leucine Smoothies, Meal-in-a-Bars, and snack bars.

Sneaky Diet Traps To Avoid

healthysaladTransform your life, one meal at a time. 

Eating the wrong salad could derail your whole diet.  Here’s how to avoid these sneaky diet traps with smarter food choices that will also save you money.

When it comes to losing weight and eating healthy, it’s no secret that a nutritious smoothee is better than a bowl of ice cream.  But for everything in between, the road to good health can be paved with difficult choices.  The terrain gets even tougher because many foods that sound innocent — such as restaurant salads and morning lattes — often contain hidden fat.  Consumed with the best of intentions, these calorie bombs still sabotage all the celery sticks and fitness classes.

From learning how to build a fresh, delicious, and healthy salad to swapping soda water for soda pop, better eating habits are easier when you have the right tools to take to the table.  Healthy eating doesn’t have to mean spending more money, either.  A protein-packed Shaklee 180 Energizing Smoothee that costs less than three dollars?  Now that’s smart eating.

The typical restaurant salad is a caloric fiesta of greasy croutons, creamy dressings, and hidden fats.  A typical side salad can contain up to 500 calories.. or more!!  Here’s how to build a healthy and delicious salad.

Red onions: Contain quercetin, an antioxidant that is widely studied for a variety of health benefits.

Leafy greens: Packed with vitamins A, C, and K, lettuce is also a good source of folic acid and fiber.

Mushrooms: full of energizing B-vitamins, which are important for your metabolism.

Shaklee 180 fat-free salad dressing:

1/4 cup rice vinegar, 1 tbsp dijon-style prepared mustard, 1/2 tbsp honey, 1-2 cloves garlic (crushed), 1/4 tsp sea salt (optional), 1 tsp dried basil, 1/4 tsp paprika, and pepper to taste.

Serving Size= 1 tablespoon

Calorie per serving= 20

Guilt-free groceries: Stock up on these healthy foods.  At less than 25 calories per serving, they will fill you up without weighing you down:

cabbage, zucchini, radishes, mushrooms, celery, green onion, bell and hot peppers, cucumber, snap peas, raw broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, pickles, salad greens (endive, lettuce, spinach, kale), pickles, condiments (mustard, salsa, vinegar, horseradish), herbs and spices, soy sauce, bouillon, fat-free broth, carbonated water, club soda or seltzer, coffee, & tea.

Shaklee 180Real Results

Most fad diets don’t have any scientific proof.  In a preliminary clinical study, participants lost an average of 15.4 pounds in 12 weeks using Shaklee 180 weight-loss products.  They also lost an average of four inches around their waist — some people lost as much as 8.5 inches!  But even more remarkable was that participants retained nearly all of their lean muscle.
