Make Your Calories Count!
If you find dieting, losing weight and making healthy food choices difficult, look at it this way: try to get the most out of the calories you eat. Avoid foods that have a lot of calories but little nutritional value—or “empty” calories. Foods with a lot of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates, lean protein, and healthy fats) and relatively few calories are considered healthy.
Now ask yourself—is there something you are eating or drinking that you can cut out? A great (and easy) first step is to quit sugary drinks, such as soda, bottled lemonade or sweetened tea, or juices with sugar added. Try unsweetened teas and flavored or plain water instead. Cookies, cakes and candies are also filled with empty calories, so think about cutting those out of your diet too.
If you can cut out 500 calories from sugary beverages or snacks every week, you may see an improvement in your weight of as much as 1 to 2 pounds a week. You might miss the sweet taste but it may help you to know that your taste buds take time to change, so give yourself about 2 months to get used to it.
Let’s take a look at what happens to your entire body when you loose fat.
Vitamins and minerals in adequate amounts are necessary for good health, and help in the prevention of diseases. Deficiencies can develop when following a restrictive diet which is lacking in a certain vitamin or mineral. Most deficiencies of vitamins and minerals are not likely to develop if consuming a wide variety of foods. Eating irregularly or eating a poor variety of food can cause deficiencies.
The vitamin deficiency symptoms chart provides a condensed reference guide to the functions of vitamins and minerals, deficiency symptoms, and dietary sources.
Vitamins are listed first in alphabetical order, and then minerals.

My new life began about 10 years ago when I was trapped in an emotionally abusive life where each day was a chore to go to work and then to get through the day at home. I then decided it was time for a change that led me to loosing 50 lbs and keeping it off to this day. I felt heckled at work and even more at home for being heavier. I chose a lifestyle change and went on my own journey taking nutrition, fitness, and life coaching classes to become a better self and happier with life in general.
Once I knew that I felt better healthier and emotionally, I knew I was stronger than sticking in a situation that was demeaning and wanted to share my story with others. Few years later, I started my own business educating others to make their health a lifestyle change and not a diet, which has an expiration date. I also encourage them to be stronger with self defense and wisdom to be unique and conquer anything the day throws at them.
I not only decided on the weight loss goals, but due to having so many stomach issues, I pursued the route of determining what was behind it when no doctor could figure out why I had IBS and constipation issues. I tried every pill made to mankind and was at my wits end so, I went to a naturopathic doctor to pursue an allergy test. This determined many factors to my illness. I was gluten, dairy, and egg yolk free plus many other food items that were causing the inflammation and issues leading to my stomach discomforts.
So I guess my emotional abuse led to my drive to becoming a successful journey that has helped me sustain a healthy lifestyle and to help educate others to becoming energetic and productive in their daily lives.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
