The Introduction of Macronutrients

https://youtu.be/d5fxhvtvm7s When it comes to macronutrients it always interests how most people are obsessed with one of the macronutrients. You’ll often hear someone say, “I need to get protein, I don’t have enough protein, where do you get your protein from?” Then you have the fats people won’t touch because they think fats, regardless of what kind will actually make them gain weight (which certainly isn’t the case as you’ll read in the fats section below). And then there’s the ca...

How to detox your body and bathroom

We often think about toxins we’re putting in our body but how often do we think about toxins we put on our body?  Most of us know our skin is our biggest organ but did you know we can absorb chemicals through our skin faster than by consuming them from food?   There are tons of chemical in conventional cosmetics, which include everything from toothpaste to deodorant.  Just as the food industry is based around mass production and sales, the cosmetic industry is no different.  Not only do we ...

How to Detox your Body – Processed Foods

How to detoxify yourself through processed foods is a topic I wanted to cover because prevention is something I often talk about.  Our society is so wrapped around the mind set of ‘treating’ that I think we lose out by not looking for ways to prevent.   As a fitness instructor, nutrition advocate and health enthusiast I’m often confronted after someone’s been diagnosed with something.  Diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, you name it; the first thing I think when someone says “I...

Getting on Global News

Getting on the global news is a new experience for me.  I’ve been on tv before, I’m been interviewed for newspapers and played in some pretty intense games.  So does that mean I’m not nervous about being on tv, of course not.  Any time you’re taken outside of your comfort zone nervousness arises.  I recently interviewed an Olympic Athlete on the radio and she was nervous which at first surprised me but then I remembered, anything new or outside of your comfort zone will bring up discomfort whic...

Benefits of a Nutrition Journal

The benefits of a nutrition journal is something I want to share because I’m so very excited to announce I finally have one to offer.  This one is slightly different which I’ll get into shortly however I named this a ‘success journal’. It didn’t take me long to realize working with my clients, those that record and keep track of their food have a much higher rate of reaching their goals than those that don’t.  Not only food but water or fluid intake along with recording your emotions is wher...

Success and Failure as an Author

Success and failure is always there, you'll always have ups and downs, no matter how you look at it at times things will be better than another time.  You can change your perspective, you can change your attitude but the truth of the matter is at times things won't run so smoothly.  And there's nothing wrong with that, if you read any of my other posts on other subjects you'd know I tell you to embrace those times, embrace failure, embrace when you're not so good, get better and move on.   As an...

Overnight Success

So recently I found out pretty much by accident (if I believed in accidents ☺) Detoxify Yourself was found on a best sellers list in Calgary. I was quite take back as you could imagine, Detoxify Yourself has taken me places I never thought I’d go, certainly never on any kind of best sellers. First thought was disbelief, then I thought they got the name or title wrong, but when I saw proof reality hit home, I was able to appreciate all the hard work I put in which I wanted to share because I feel...

Detox For Men

Detox for men is something you rarely hear about.  It’s seems for the most part its women that are looking to cleanse, or reset their system.  I have to admit, when I do book signings I don’t expect many men to come over but the last few signings have proven me wrong.  More men than women have purchased Detoxify Yourself as of recent, which I think is cool. Men get a bad rap for meat and potatoes, course this is true in many cases but there’s a lot of men trying to live healthier as well. ...

The End of Book Stores?

I run into many different types of people during my adventures with whatever project I'm up to, in this case in particular more directly those that start a detox or a cleanse. First of all it’s important to note that when perusing the contents of Detoxify Yourself it could look slightly daunting when you get to the meal section and you see 6 meals in a day.  Yes we’ve all heard this before; many people know what to do others have just heard you’re supposed to eat small meals throughout the day....

Global News Experience

A lot of people think this recent appearance on Global News was my first time on the news, it's actually the second. The truth is, I didn't have much of an audience 5 years ago when I first got on. The first question everyone wants to know is how I got on, and that's an easy answer. It's how I achieved just about anything not just in business but in life. Starting out my Collegiate Career I sent hundreds of snail mail letters to Colleges and Universities around the US, not one was interested....
