How to Make Your Diet Work for You

Every year we talk about setting our goals to lose “x” amount of weight. We start off great and then we begin to struggle. Here are some tips on how to keep the momentum up!

How to make your diet work for you:

  • Set an appointment to exercise. Make it a priority in your day and write in exercise on your calendar, just like any other appointment.
  • Find strength in numbers. You’re more likely to stay on track with the support of an upbeat fitness friend with similar diet and exercise goals. It will keep you more consistent and accountable.
  • Keep an exercise log. Count your steps every day and write down your activities that count toward your exercise goals. You can make it fun by walking around the country — in miles not geography! Find out how far it is from your town to your favorite destination or somewhere you always wanted to go. Then track your miles each week to “get there.”
  • Set small goals. If you want to lose a lot of weight, start with the first 10 pounds so you don’t feel overwhelmed. Breaking weight loss into smaller bites makes it easier to tackle.
  • Reward yourself. Don’t miss the milestones as you work toward your goal weight. Those little victories of 5 or 10 pounds are worth celebrating to keep you on the right path.
  • Keep a food diary. It’s too easy to let a handful here and there pile up to a huge load of calories. By paying closer attention to what you eat each day, you’ll know your danger zones and where to cut back to lose weight. After a month, look back through your diary to see how far you’ve come.
  • Add variety. No one says you have to walk the same course every day. Check out a park or another neighborhood. Walk instead of drive to a friend’s house. Or don’t walk anywhere – ride a bike, try out a new fitness class, take a dance class, or go for a swim at the local aquatic center.

Hope this inspires you to keep up your fitness goals! If you are looking for a weight loss program, check out Slimplicity, a nutritional approach to weight loss.

Yours in Optimal Health!

Healthy Teeth and Omega 3

Sharing with you another outstanding article by

Protect Your Teeth and Health with Omega 3

Right now, you and your family are crossing the bridge between the recent Halloween sugarfest and the upcoming holiday sweets extravaganza. Waistlines may be paying the price most visibly. But all that sugar takes a toll on teeth and gums, too. Besides brushing and flossing, there’s another proven way to make your dentist and your mouth happy: Omega 3 essential fatty acids.

A recent study found taking the omega 3 forms DHA and EPA decreased periodontitis up to 20 percent.

Periodontitis starts with a bacterial infection along the gum line and at the base of teeth that can destroy the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. It can cause tooth loss but also increases your risk of heart attack, stroke and other health problems. That’s why it’s important to treat periodontitis aggressively — or better yet, prevent it entirely.

Sugar feeds harmful bacteria to help them multiply — which can lead to periodontitis. Additional studies show the omega 3s DHA, EPA and ALA inhibit growth of the oral bacteria that causes periodontitis. Even modest levels of these omega 3s made an impact.

To protect your smile and overall health, be sure to brush and floss daily, get a professional dental cleaning every six months, and incorporate more omega 3s into your diet. Salmon, flaxseed, enriched eggs, walnuts, and soybeans are rich sources of various forms of omega 3.

Another easy way to increase omega 3 intake is with Relìv nutritional products such as GlucAffect®, Reversage® and Relìv Now® for Kids. All three are great sources of omega 3 essential fatty acids that come in a simple shake chock-full of other beneficial nutrients too. And to help you cut back on your sugar intake, try a healthier alternative such as Relìvables® All-Natural Sweetener. Stir the calorie-free sweetener in your coffee, tea or use anywhere else you would normally use sugar.

I love these health articles that are put out by my company. They show passion and an understanding the people are looking for good health information.

If you liked this article please share with your friends. You can twitter, facebook, or your favorite social media site. Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to your comments! Share your passion of nutrition!

Yours in achieving optimal health!

Eat Right, Live Longer

We all know that we need to be eating right and here is a study that has been going on for 18 years. This is a great article brought to you from our family and friends at

Eat Right, Live Longer!

Eating the right foods may add years to your life. That’s what Harvard University researchers found in a study of more than 72,000 U.S women.

The findings, based on an 18-year Nurses Health Study, showed that women who ate the largest amounts of fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains were 17 percent less likely to die during the course of the study than those who ate the smallest amount. Specifically, these healthy eaters were 28 percent less likely to die of heart disease or stroke. Other key parts of the healthy diet include legumes, fish and poultry.

Women who had a “Western” eating pattern that includes red and processed meats, sweets, French fries and refined grains like white bread, were 21 percent more likely to die during the 18-year study period than those women who avoided those foods and followed a healthier eating style.

The study, reported in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association, underscores the importance of healthy overall eating patterns. It’s not about one specific food or vitamin. It’s about providing your body with a steady variety of nutrients essential to your health.

If your eating habits are less than perfect, consider adding a backup plan — like Relìv Classic® or Relìv Now®. These powerhouse nutritional supplements take the guesswork out of good nutrition. Every Relìv product is precisely formulated to deliver optimal levels of the essential vitamins, minerals, protein and phytonutrients necessary to support overall wellbeing. And that can mean a longer, healthier life.

I think what really jumped out at me with the article was the need to eat healthy overall. It is not just one vitamin or mineral that will change your health but it is your overall eating habits that decide your health.

For me going out was a treat when growing up. We always ate at home and both my parents worked. I was the one that did most of the cooking once I was able too and fell in love with it, but that is another story.

I just know that when I take my Reliv shake twice a day I am giving my body everything it need to take care of itself. So if I decide to have Taco Bell for lunch I am still getting the nutrition I need from my shake. But I have found that I do crave more fruits and vegetables now… strange but true.
