30 lbs down & kept it off for 2 plus years now!

Lisa Shorter before and after!.png

What I love about Lisa's story is her focus on her health and lifestyle, rather than on what the scale says.

Lisa so beautifully demonstrates the mindset that is required for permanent weight loss. It's not about quick results, it is about results that last. 

If you've been overweight your whole life or you are over 50, you'll want to learn from Lisa's story and take on her mindset.

It's about sustainable results with the initial focus being on health.

You must cultivate patience and...

The one thing 97% of dieters won't do to lose weight

revamping the kitchen.jpg

There is a reason 97% of dieters fail.

The reason is obvious.

They fail to stick to the diet.

Hold on, hold on.

It's not because they are lazy and undisciplined, it's because weight loss diets are designed to be done for a temporary time period.

They are not by design for permanent results.

Think about it:

- If you don't already go to the gym and love it, how long do you think you can force yourself to do it?
- How long can you really live on 1000 calories or less a day, before you freak out...

Weight loss is not as simple as 'eat less & move more'.

There are 8 physiological blocks to weight loss that have nothing at all to do with calories or exercise.

Here is how having issues with leaky gut blocks weight loss:

Carbs - good, bad, ugly?

pink top eating cake.jpg
Vegans say a high carb diet is good, the Keto people say low carb is best and the Carnivores say carbs are completely unnecessary (yes there is such thing as a carnivore diet!).

Who's right, who's wrong and how is the lay person who hasn't extensively studied nutrition supposed to know who's telling the truth and who isn't.

Well, it isn't really a matter of who's telling the truth or of anybody telling lies.

It is a matter of context.

The fact is that carbs exist in...

Weight loss is not as simple as 'eat less & move more'.

There are 8 physiological blocks to weight loss that have nothing at all to do with calories or exercise.

Here is how having issues with hormones block weight loss:

1 - At puberty, estrogen makes our breasts take shape, broadens our hips and gives us curves. It causes fat to be laid down on our hips, bottom and thighs. With estrogen dominance, we lay down more fat than we need ( additionally, after menopause...

Weight Loss Block #2: Elimination Issues

Weight loss is not as simple as 'eat less & move more'.

There are 8 physiological blocks to weight loss that have nothing at all to do with calories or exercise.

Here is how having issues with elimination block weight loss:

1) Constipation causes toxins to be reabsorbed by the liver. Since they can't be eliminated through the colon as nature intended, they get stored in fat cells to protect the rest of the body (your extra fat has a good purpose in this case).

2) Issues with chronic...

sacsle in the garbage.jpg
The reason why is that focusing on what the scale says is focusing your time, energy & attention on the wrong thing.
You think your weight is your problem, but it isn’t.

Your weight is an effect of your problem, not the cause.

Your problem is fivefold ...

1 - You have a low level of health education or consciousness (or both). You don’t actually know what you are doing. You could be doing it wrong or 'half assing' things - in any case you are making...
