THIS IS NOT A DIET!!! This is truly a transformation. I have been heavy my whole life and have been on diets since I was a kid. I have tried most everything out there that I thought was safe and that would not harm my body. As John said 97% of diets fail. I’m living proof. Did I loose weight? Sure, did I gain it back? You betcha.
When I found John I was doing the Medifast diet. I was losing weight but felt bad. I was weak. I had no energy. I was constantly craving food. When I heard John on the radio it sounded to good to be true but I decided to check it out. My first meeting with John I was skeptical but it made sense. I took my wife with me. She too was wanting to diet and wanted to try NutriSystem. Well, long story short we decide to try. I had just received a shipment of Medifast food which I returned the next day.
We started seeing results pretty quick. We were losing weight and getting toned. My wife had an injury about a week into the program. I called...

One exciting thing that has happened since I’ve been on the program, When I got dressed last Sunday, I discovered there is now room between me and the waistband on my pants. Before I started I had to suck my gut in to get them fastened. Then the top of the waistband rolled out because of the dunlop disease.
One of my goals was for my belt buckle to face forward and not face the floor. I’ve just about reached that goal. Still got a lot of fat so the next goal if for my children to be able to take me shopping for new clothes. I may have to resort to suspenders before that happens though.
Another exciting thing is my blood sugar is down about 30 points on average. I’ve completely dropped one medicine and may be able to convince my doctor to drop another dangerous one when I visit him this month. My goal here is to completely get rid of all my meds. The one medicine I’ve dropped will more then cover the cost of the...

Salmon for Shine
Fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel are packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Your body can't make these healthy fats, so you have to get them from food or supplements. They help protect you from disease, but your body also needs them to grow hair and keep it shiny and full.
Grow With Greek Yogurt
It’s packed with protein, the building block of your locks. Greek yogurt also has an ingredient that helps with blood flow to your scalp and hair growth. It’s called vitamin B5 (known as pantothenic acid) and may even help against hair thinning and loss. You may recognize pantothenic acid as an ingredient on your hair and skincare product labels.

One of the things people often over look in fitness, especially as we age, is the importance of maintaining muscle mass. Everyone wants to lose fat. We have developed an entire industry around that concept, but the critical role muscle plays to that effect is often lost in the process. As we age, our body starts to lose muscle mass, a process called sarcopenia. This usually starts in our 40’s and tends to accelerate with age. It varies from person to person and depends a bit upon how much muscle one has to start with. Regardless, muscle mass is slowly lost with time.
So what’s the significance of this? Let’s start at the metabolic level. The number one determining factor of an individual’s basal metabolic rate is their lean muscle mass. We all know muscle burns a lot of calories during exercise, but when we are at rest, muscle still continues to burn calories as it works to maintain its size and integrity. This is the combustible engine of your...
