I'm always asked how to lose belly fat... We all want a slim midsection, yet for some it often more difficult to achieve. Genetics obviously have a big role to play in it; however, we are responsible for what we put in our mouth, an most often than not we're actually not feeding our body healthy wholesome foods.

If you have a large belly odds are that you are insulin resistant. That means your body cannot process carbohydrates in your diet so it is stored as fat. The best diet to shrink your midsection is a high protein & veggies with selected low glycemic index fruits. Aim for having at least 20 to 30 grams of protein with each meal & snack.  Eat nuts and have Omega’s to aid in your weight loss and health.  Be sure to drink lots of purified water to keep you well hydrated and to remove toxins from the body.


Society as a whole is overweight, obesity in children is also at an all time high, quite frankly that's scary.  Being fit and healthy all comes down to moving more and eating less. We all long for more energy, when you move more you will get more energy naturally.  You’ll be more inclined to workout too.  

Make exercise a high priority in your life. Even if you don't have the energy to truly hit the gym you can burn more calories by walking more, when you walk do so with energy, walk fast, it will burn more calories and you'll get more things done during the day too. Here are a few ways to incorporate more steps into your day.


·    Aim for walking 10,000 steps a day.
·    Park far away in a parking lot, walk to the mailbox.
·    Take a walk each evening with your family.
·    Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
·    Walk your dog each morning.
·    Take a walk in the park.
·    Go walking for your lunch break, keep tennis shoes at work & take a quick meal such as a protein drink, an apple and a 12 raw almonds to eat after your walk.
·    Walk with a friend on the weekends.
·    Do yard work.
·    Clean your house.
·    Clean your garage
·    Walk the Malls, window shopping can be a lot of fun.


If you watch what you eat and avoid carbs you will shrink your midsection. You can get your carbs by eating an apple a day which is healthy and filled with fiber. Think about your success as attainable. See your midsection as getting slimmer each new day.

You can achieve your goals and dreams but only if you honor and believe in you. So make you number one in your life and care for your body, if you do you will find that your body will become healthier, stronger and more vibrant, which attracts more to be thankful for in your life. Believe in your ability to accomplish your fitness goals by loving all that you are now! You can do it!

"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
