Health 100% starts in the kitchen! 10 years ago I began my journey to losing 130+ pounds and healing my body of Type 2 Diabetes. The #1 factor with weight loss and health is NUTRITION.

I thought I had NO TIME to cook or eat healthy– so I would starve all day and then finally out of starvation scarf down some horrible fast food. From all this my body went into CRISIS MODE and […]

It’s HOW you drink your coffee that makes it good or not so good for your health. I suggest first choosing an organic coffee that’s tripled filtered with clean, distilled water (90% of coffee is water). Then cut the sugar and fake sugars and use a healthy, […]

As we all know that usually is not the […]

Not having enough of B12 results in fatigue, poor appetite, depression, dementia-like qualities, sleeplessness, poor memory, and lower metabolism. Many weight loss programs have incorporated Vitamin B12 (you can never get too much of it), another way to ensure optimal performance from your body.

In the mid-1700s a Scottish naval surgeon named James Lind discovered that drinking Lime juice prevented the life threatening disease of scurvy in sailors on long voyages. Lind was a forward thinker for his time. Soon British ships began carrying ample supplies of limes for sailors to prevent scurvy and shortly after earned them the nickname of “Limey”. Today, we can also benefit from the powerful vitamin C that limes offer in our fast-paced, over-worked and often times under nourished modern-day lifestyle. Could limes be a miracle fruit? The health benefits of lime are astonishing and include weight loss, […]
