Super EASY – click this Prolon link which is my personal page – As you know I am obsessed  with with Prolon and hunted them down (re: stalked) until I was able to get a code for my listeners, readers and followers. This shows them I am not kidding when I say I want to and WILL share the fasting love. WOOT!

I had a few friends joining me on 2nd round (for first timers, it’s recommended to do 3 months in a row) and now I am getting us all mentally prepared for round 3. You totally need to join us on May for Mother’s Day! Yup. What better a gift than the gift of longevity?!

My first tip (and I’ll give a bunch as we get closer to May) is fast with a friend. We all know how the buddy system works. We text, we talk, we get into our feelings about not shoving food in our pie holes JUST BECAUSE. We talk to our hunger! And each other.

Here’s a sneak peak of the sched:

Next, my biggest tip: shift your perception from glass half empty attitude to half full. It’s not about five days going ‘without’ but rather what you will gain. You will be so surprised to discover ALL THERE IS when food is not there (for the most part, or, food on your usual terms). A feeling of spaciousness, quiet, clarity, serenity. You’ll gain control over your hunger (yes, you’ll feel ‘hunger’ and then it passes and you’ll think wow, that’s it?? I am totally fine!) and your fear of hunger once you see what’s on the other side.

But this is just one of psychological and emotional boosts – the Prolon #fastingmimickingdiet is for longevity and health, first and foremost. However I do believe our psychological attachment to food is the hardest thing to get over and why some people will lose out on the health benefits – for some it seems too scary to get going. Not to mention the fear of failure.

Cool thing is there is a huge community on their Facebook page too – with Q and A’s with the doctors and lots of support.

Head to my podcast with Dr. James Kelly to learn about the science of fasting. I can’t believe we are not all fasting more. (yet!)

So many levels of self-awareness revealed themselves to me, in my first round. But that was just icing on the cake (no pun). The 5 day fasting with food is the only way to get the full effects of fasting only WITH food.

Think: Enhanced Performance: Feel greater focus, clarity and energy, through the benefits of a leaner body. Fat Focused Weight Loss: Fastest way to lose fat (especially belly fat) while protecting lean body mass.Enhance Cellular Function: Trigger stem cell-based regeneration and autophagy, (the clean up of aging & damaged cells) & promote stem cell-based renewal. Metabolic Health: Maintain healthy levels of blood glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as markers of inflammation for overall wellness.

I completely mastered my hunger (and total FEAR of it) to the point where I’m now on a 36 hour fast and it’s like NO BIG DEAL (Thank you @metabolicmike for your FB group!!).

I feel INCREDIBLE – as in two months later – LASTING effects, weight loss, hunger and mind control – insane energy. It’s so damn good.

My third month is in May – WHO IS JOINING ME??

Superfood Your Coffee with BARISTA BOOST

October 21, 2018

I was looking for a superfood for my coffee the other day. Sure, I have ten bottles of Sun Potion goodies that all cost a fortune ( seriously, I think I spent $300 in one check out last year) and honestly they don’t taste great. At all. I wanted something with healthy fats and collagen and all the good stuff.

Enter Barista Boost

It soooo good. First off, I send everything first to my trainer and ‘brain fixer’ keto – Intermittent fasting maniac friend Arthur, for approval. He asked me to text him a photo of the back – alas – APPROVED! He said “it’s excellent, I want to try it!” – Phew.

I have not missed one day adding it to my coffee. And here is why below…OH, and it’s available on Amazon!

  • MADE WITH ORGANIC, NON-GMO INGREDIENTS – Every jar of Coffee Booster coffee creamer is handmade in small batches with high-quality non-GMO ingredients. This high-calorie creamer is made with organic grass-fed ghee, all-natural coconut oil, and raw cacao powder.

 

  • EXCEPTIONAL TASTE – The key behind Coffee Booster’s smooth, delicious taste is all natural ingredients with no emulsifiers. Other products like soy lecithin, omega power creamer, and keto creamer use odd tasting emulsifiers to solidify their creamers. This GMO-free creamer tastes great with any style of coffee and is full of flavor. 

 

  • CONTAINS HEALTHY FATS & MINIMAL CARBS – This calorie supplementing creamer is high in fat and contains few carbs. Just one scoop of this coconut oil and ghee based coffee butter is enough to supplement a meal’s worth of calories as well as provide healthy fats. Coffee Booster helps you feel bulletproof by increasing your energy, helping your brain maintain focus through the day, and reducing your hunger cravings.

  • PERFECT FOR YOUR DIET & LIFESTYLE – This high-fat organic coffee creamer is diet friendly and works with anyone on the Paleo Diet or the Ketogenic Diet. This flavorful creamer is also very popular with fans of crossfit, gamers, and anyone who wants sustained energy from their coffee.

 

  • SIMPLE TO USE & EASY TO STORE – This fatty creamer can quickly be dissolved into coffee or tea and can easily be combined with a mixer to make a rich blend. Coffee Booster can be stored anywhere since no refrigeration is necessary. Avoid keeping the product in direct sunlight or in environments with temperatures exceeding 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Coffee Booster jars are available in singles and in three-pack bundles.

Paleo Beet Hummus

Not all of us can eat beans… so I created this bean-free (paleo!) hummus. It’s super easy and delicious. Just give yourself enough time to soak your walnuts and roast your beets. In the picture, it’s layered with avocado and some seeds in an endive boat,  but you can eat it any way you would eat hummus.

  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • juice from ½ lemon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Directions

The night before…

  1. Soak your walnuts overnight in water in the refrigerator.
  2. Roast or boil your beets until a fork will pierce through the middle. Let them cool and then peel them.

The day of…

 

  1. Blend all ingredients together in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Serve in endive boats topped with avocado, sunflower seeds and a drizzle of olive oil.
