DANGERS OF PERFORMANCE-ENHANCING DRUGS
By: Lisa Moretti
April 18, 2013
!-->The lure of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) is seductive; everyone wants to find that special “something” that gives them the competitive edge. But that minute of glory can come at a huge price. We’ve seen athletes like Lance Armstrong, Marion Jones and Roger Clemens publicly shamed and stripped of their glory for their use of PEDs. But the darker side of drugs and doping is that those secret “sauces” are devastating to the body and some are even life threatening.
Catching Bodies Downstream
We are astounded when athletes (both professional and amateur) die young from diseases like kidney or heart failure or liver atrophy. Few people connect the dots to realize that PEDs overtax the body to the point where it gives out early. For those who don’t die, they can be left lingering in a lifetime of dialysis, cancers, pain and bodily breakdown. Along with the physical deva...
This method of colon cleansing is amazing because it allows the client to be in control and have total privacy. You can bring someone/assitance if need help getting on the system, or if you choose to have someone holding your hand. It's painless and the ambiance is very inviting meant to relax you. Once you allow yourself to concour your fears and do it for the 1st time you will be blown away. It's nothing like the demonstration you will get from the person that has never experienced it. Ask someone that has had a colon cleanse and it's always posititve! Ask the opposite and you will be laughing and joking about it forever.
Colon Cleansing and the understanding of it comes with education/ the importance of it. The benefits of cleansing the body/colon specifically results in a never ending list of benefits. People all over the world suffer with digestive issues and live everyday lives like it's healthy. The subject of defecating is not shared at any given time unless it's a joke but yet s...
Tips to help prevent holiday overeating
1. Never go to the table hungry - you won't "save" calories by skipping breakfast because you are bond to eat more at the holiday meal
2. If it is served buffet style, check out whole selection before putting anything on your ate - give yourself time to "decide" what you want to eat. Stand away from the table,
3. If served "family style" start with salad and veggies than protein, leaving high fat, calorie dense food selections 2nd round of choices. Less likely to over indulge if you have already taken the edge off hunger.
4 . After you have eaten put a mint or gum in your mouth
5. Drink lots of water, always have a glass nearby
6. Avoid alcohol it adds empty calories and will disinhibit your sense of control
7. Remind yourself that the taste is momentary give yourself 5 minutes and a few deep breaths before going for 2nds or sugary desserts.
8. Remind yourself of your goal and that you are stronger than an urge.

What Size is "Normal"?
Cheers to the Swedish Department Store for using mannequins that reflect a size 12 rather than the emaciated, androgynous ones in many of the popular places young people shop in this country http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2299498/Swedish-department-store-hl-ns-reignites-body-image-debate-photo-normal-sized-mannequins-goes-global.html. What is normal? According to Pamela Peek, MD MPH, FACP a worldwide respected speaker on the topics says:
To answer this question, let’s look at some facts. The average starlet is wearing a size 2 or 4 which is the sample size designers are making presently. Today, the average American woman is 5’4?, has a waist size of 34-35 inches and weighs between 140-150 lbs, with a dress size of 12-14. Fifty years ago, the average woman was 5’3-4? with a waist size of approximately 24-25?, she weighed about 120 lbs and wore a size 8. Curiously, over the past twenty years, fashion model sizes have dropped from a size ...
We're talking about fat here. (Although I know what you're thinking, and I totally agree with you - brown chocolate is better than white chocolate too.)
Did you know you have two kinds of fat: white fat and brown fat? The brown fat is the good kind. It's like baby fat, and it burns serious calories. Just 3 ounces can burn several hundred calories a day.
I read an article that said that for awhile scientists thought only babies and small mammals had brown fat. Then they discovered adults had it - females had more than males. An example of where to find brown fat left me a little miffed, though! The article said that it was in "an area extending from the front of the neck to the chest."
So I placed my palm on the front of my neck. Immediately I noticed that half my palm was also on my chest. Hmm. Not much fat there.
From what I've read you can't turn white fat to brown fat, but baby fat cells get a chance to "choose" to be white or brown. We have more brown cells here and there (we'r...

Unfortunately, I just made all this up, please forgive me if it seemed like the answer you’ve been searching for in the holy grail of dieting and weight loss.
I went on my first diet at around the age of 23, which is 21 years ago. I had been a slim child and teenager and never thought about food until I began to ‘comfort eat’ during my late teens when I was unhappy at wo...
One day last week I was thinking about sugar. I think about sugar often as I am addicted to the effect that sugar has on my emotional well-being. As regular readers of my blog will know, I occasionally write articles about the stuff and find articles I can link you to as well. One of the reasons that I decided to specialise as a personal coach in the area of weight loss and management is because I wanted to help those people, like myself, that have had struggles with losing weight and keeping it off in the long-term. We all seem to have an Achilles heel when it comes to our ‘go-to’ comfort food. My own personal favourite has, for about 26 years, been chocolate; the cheaper kinds preferably, like Cadbury’s Dairy Milk. When I have feelings that I don’t want to deal with, when I’m happy or sad, chocolate is my food of choice. Of course, the sane and rational part of me and especially the coach in me, knows that this is not the best choice for me and I know, y...
Is this your year to get the extra pounds off and keep them off? Have you been viewing food as a best friend? What would your life be like if you were to actually follow through and get the weight off and keep it off. Yes to change is work...and yet to not change is work too. As human beings we have to eat. So you can transform your thinking and embrace the Nine Key Variables that are "Must-Do's" to forevermore Weight Loss.
When you have attempted to get to and maintain a desired weight year after year, something in your thinking, whether it be at the conscious or unconscious level, is in the way. Your mind and how you think will either support permanent weight loss or not. For those persons who have difficulty either getting to or keeping the weight off, a more thorough, no-nonsense approach is essential.
While Weight Watchers and Medifast are valuable and proven approaches for some people, if you have tried them and are still have...
Let’s talk Basic Human Needs and how “Overweight” and “Food Struggles” start and continue…
As soon as we are born, an infant comes into the world with Basic Human Needs. The need for love, protection, safety are common to all human beings. As a child grows up, add to the list of Basic Human Needs, the need for belonging, understanding, acceptance and acknowledgment. The role of a parent or caregiver is to meet a child’s needs so they feel secure, cared for, valuable and worthwhile. When these needs are invalidated and denied, a child experiences fear, pain and stress.
Fear and stress are like storm clouds signaling a person to run for cover. Unfortunately the refuge some children retreat to takes the form of food. Its drug-like effects give a person pleasure and relieve pain. Through no fault of her own, a child, having a limited repertoire of skills, does a behavior she has already mastered….eating. Were a c...
Balance the Scales: Emotions or Weight?
Rachel is a woman who takes in more food than her body needs. She eats dessert when she is already stuffed from her meal. She eats far too much, too frequently, and unlike the Ironman athlete whose body burns fuel while running, swimming and biking, Rachel keeps herself stuck in ‘hesitation’ and ‘indecision.’ She is unsure what type of exercise she’d like to do and hence has yet to get started. Hers is a push-push relationship with cheese, bread and other comfort foods. She feels tempted every time she sees them and after arguing with herself , “should I have some, shouldn’t I,” finally gives in plopping down on the couch, gobbling down the tasty bites that instantly change her brain chemistry. With the push-pull of tension released, she feels satisfied for awhile, then a critical voice inside her mind shouts out “You have no self-discipline. You are going to stay fat forever if you don&rsquo...
