Why diets Don't work

Can you guess the #1 issue with all weight loss programs? 

Long term sustainability. Livable. Bearable.

Neither 30-day diets, cleanses, boot camps nor 10-day juice fasts are the real answers for weight loss. 

The perfect diet doesn’t exist, but Green Light Spagyric Tincture makes it easy to ensure your body gets the micronutrients it needs for ultimate productivity, discipline and focus.

Why Lose Weight?

You're about to sit down to another salad with chicken like you eat every day for lunch when it hits you: You just can't do this healthy eating thing anymore. And the thought of tonight's Zumba class makes you want to scream. You just want to inhale a bag of potato chips and not feel guilty about it and worry about the numbers on the scale. Whether you're in the middle of trying to lose 100 pounds or you're three months into a new fitness routine, your motivation to lose weight is gone. So what do you do?

Buttercup Squash Soup with Ginger and Turmeric

This easy-to-prepare soup is one of my favorite. Butternut squash delivers an ample dose of dietary fiber, making it an exceptionally heart-friendly choice. It provides significant amounts of Vitamin A, potassium, important for bone health, and vitamin B6, essential for the proper functioning of both the nervous and immune systems. Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory and is a very strong antioxidant. Ginger is among the healthiest (and most delicious) spices on the planet. It is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain.

 

And start listening to the still, small voice of success—which lives inside all of us.

Why are we so frequently prone to do the things that are least important but so unwilling to do the important things that success and happiness require? What is the voice that whispers to us: Just let it all go. Why worry about all that self-awareness baloney?  It is the voice of negativity, a voice that has grown gradually controlling and stronger over the years as a result of being around the wrong people, thinking the wrong thoughts, adopting the wrong philosophy and making the wrong decisions.

Every cell in the body needs magnesium. It helps keep muscles strong and nerves alert. And studies suggests that daily magnesium supplements can even help an ailing heart.

With nearly half of our population consuming less than the recommended amount of magnesium in their diets, this prevalent magnesium deficiency is a commonly overlooked risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Studies demonstrate that the lower your intake of magnesium, the greater your risk of succumbing to cardiovascular disease.

Stuffed Sweet Potato

While watching your starchy carbs, when it comes to eating a healthy diet, sweet potatoes can be an asset to your health. Ranking lower in glycemic load then regular potatoes and containing a high density of nutrients, sweet potatoes have an impressive nutritional profile. The delicious dressing utilizes Tahini, an ingredient made from toasted ground hulled sesame seeds that are rich in minerals such as phosphorus, lecithin, magnesium, potassium and iron. It’s a good source of methionine, which aids in liver detoxification and helps to promote healthy cell growth.
