better-sexFOR MEN ONLY 

(And those who care about him)

A satisfying sex life requires a healthy body, which depends on sound nutrition, exercise, and sufficient rest.   For the most part, sexual function is controlled by the endocrine glands, which secrete specific hormones.   In order to function properly and produce sufficient hormones, these glands have certain nutritional needs.

The pituitary gland has both direct and indirect effects on sexual and reproductive functions.   Its hormones need the B-complex vitamins, pantothenic acid, niacin, vitamin E, and zinc.   Any deficiency of the pituitary causes underdeveloped sex organs, and impotence in men.© Copyright 2010 CorbisCorporation

The adrenal glands produce a small but significant amount of sex hormones.   These glands need vitamin A, the B vitamins, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-1, niacin, vitamins C and E, and the unsaturated fatty acids.   Adrenal exhaustion can result in little strength or desire for sex.   An inadequately supplied thyroid can also cause a lack  of desire or strength for sex.   Iodine, the B vitamins, vitamin B-1, and vitamin E are essential for the production of its hormone, thyroxine.

good sexThe male sex gland, the testes, is composed of two glands;  one secretes testosterone and the other produces sperm.  (Testosterone increases sexual desire in both sexes.)   Vitamins A, C, E, and folic acid work with testosterone to produce sperm and other male characteristics such as a deep voice and facial hair.   The nutrient content of sperm includes calcium, magnesium, zinc, sulfur, and vitamins B-12, C, and inositol.   A deficiency of vitamin E causes a degeneration of the testicles;  too-low levels of zinc result in immovable, useless, and infertile sperm.   In male laboratory animals, a manganese deficiency causes loss of sex drive, lack of semen, and degeneration of the seminal tubules.   Testosterone levels proportionately decrease with the amount of marijuana smoked.

The sex hormones are made from cholesterol.   Cholesterol-containing foods need not be limited as long as the body has sufficient amounts of the other nutrients needed to properly metabolize the cholesterol.   These include the vitamins B-complex, C, and E, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and lecithin.   Refined and processed foods are greatly lacking in these nutrients;  in their absence cholesterol is unable to enter the cells and remains in the blood, eventually forming plaques.

apple sexImpotence, the male’s inability to achieve erection of the penis, has been related to a magnesium or a combined zinc and vitamin B-6 deficiency.   Other factors associated with impotence are emotional problems, physical illness such as diabetes, and the intake of drugs and alcohol.   Although levels of testosterone decrease with age, this does not cause erectile impotence because the penis requires only minimal amounts of the hormone for successful operation.

Sterility can occur in the male and is often the result of a zinc deficiency.   Studies have shown that the higher the blood histamine level is in men, the quicker the ejaculation.   Men too low in histamine cannot achieve ejaculation.  The B vitamins niacin and folic acid raise blood histamine;  therefore they are helpful for men who ejaculate prematurely.

Sexual desire and performance can be adversely affected by numerous things including drugs, alcohol, cigarette smoking, caffeine, some common medicines such as certain tranquilizers, anti-hypertensives, and anticholinergics.

Perhaps you can see more clearly now that no general diet can ever hope to give you what you need and that no expert can generalize about nutrition and give you the specifics you must have to effect a major change in health, and we have only discussed one issue here.   It is important to understand that your individual differences are required to design a specific nutritional program that will take into consideration your age, genetic individuality, any existing health problems, and the nutritional needs unique to you, as a man.

20 Foods to Boost Your Mood – Boost Your Energy – Improve Your Sex Life!

eat fruitIt’s no secret

that food is intricately intertwined with your emotions.  Eat a bowl of ice cream and it may make you happy; eat the whole carton and you’ll soon feel sad.  Likewise, even a whiff of a home-cooked meal may make you yearn for the days of your childhood while the scent of coffee brewing may make you more mentally alert.

So often we place the blame on ourselves or misplace it wrongly on other things.  I have done it and I know most of you reading this have too – most often unknowingly.

Example: Have you ever (or often) thought you were getting sick from some flu bug or virus an hour after eating?  While in fact it was simply “a clue” . . . your body and stomach telling you that something you ate an hour earlier wasn’t good for you!  Yes a “clue.”

Our minds often don’t correlate what we ate one hour or more earlier with how we feel now (but if we “listen” to our bodies these are valuable clues).  Unfortunately being busy and focused on so many other things, we don’t think about what we ate an hour before so these become lost opportunities and lost “clues” as to why we feel ill.

Instead, we often focus on our immediate fears and concerns related to what might have caused us to feel so bad or sick, such as stress or getting sick after having been around someone who was coughing or who was potentially sick.

Now, with all the CDC and media hype on the swine flu, our minds are running rapidly to false conclusions.  We’re already primed to think at any moment we could be coming down with the flu . . . believing we might be getting sick from some external virus, etc.

Take the “One Hour Food Clues” self-assessment test:

The “CLUE” is to assess whether “Feel Good” (or Feel Bad) one hour after eating a specific food (or drink)?  This what is called the “One Hour Food Clue.”

Listen to your body – it’s really smart!


Just like is done in many allergy tests, isolate and consume one food item.  The “clue” is revealed after you determine if, one hour after eating, you feel:

 GOOD with more energy or WORSE with less energy

It worse there is a good possibility that this food doesn’t agree with your digestive system.  In fact, you might be allergic to it or it might just be a food that isn’t healthy for you because it drags down your energy level.

“If” we learn to listen to our bodies we can learn a raw

Become your body’s “Health Whisperer!”

Combine foods and beverages that make you feel good (following multiple one hour clue tests).

Eat these in small amounts, no larger than your fist for a full meal, and eat all the foods that made you feel good and energized.  Then see if you again feel good and energized.

Odds are that your personal “clues” can guide you to what your body it truly needs and also clue you in on the foods you’re negatively reacting to the most.

You’re body is your best advocate!

Food is such a powerful player in your mental health that, according to Food and Behavior Research, a charitable organization trying to advance scientific research into the links between nutrition and human behavior, diet can play a role in preventing and managing the following conditions:

*       Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

*       Dyslexia

*       Dyspraxia

*       Autistic spectrum disorders

*       Anxiety

*       Depression

*       Bipolar (manic-depressive) disorder

*       Schizophrenia

So as you prepare for the busy daily lives or holiday planning, using foods strategically to help keep you happy, upbeat and energetic is a wise choice.

Generally speaking, eating foods that are absorbed by your body quickly, such as sugar, white bread and other refined products, will give you a quick blood sugar high followed by a crash.

On the contrary, eating foods that are absorbed slowly, such as peanut butter on whole-grain bread or brown rice with chicken, will keep your mood on a more steady level.  But there’s more.  By including the following foods in your regular diet, you’ll boost your mood and give your body plenty of healthy nutrients at the same time.

 Foods That Will Likely Make YOU Feel Happy:

1.      Citrus Fruits:

Oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruits are rich in vitamin C, which helps lower your stress hormones and keeps you feeling calm.

2.      Leafy Green Vegetables:

Kale, spinach and other leafy greens are rich in folic acid, which can reduce depression and improve blood flow to your brain.

3.      Nuts:

The vitamin E, arginine (an amino acid) and magnesium in nuts will help keep your blood sugar steady so you avoid mood swings.

4.      Salmon:

This healthy fish contains DHA, an omega-3 fat that has been linked to improved mood and lowered risk of depression and age-related memory loss.

5.     Dried Cherries:

Cherries are rich in antioxidants like vitamin C that curb your body’s stress response.

6.      Broccoli:

Broccoli is rich in stress-relieving B vitamins like folic acid.

Foods That Give YOU An Energy Boost:

7.      Lean Beef or Chicken (ideally free-range):

Lean protein contains tyrosine, an amino acid that helps your brain produce the chemicals norepinephrine and dopamine, which improve your mental function.

8.      Black Beans:

Complex carbohydrates like those in black beans and other legumes help keep your blood sugar levels balanced source of energy to make you feel awake.  Plus, black beans are a rich source of iron, an integral part of hemoglobin, which transports oxygen in the body, and key enzyme systems for energy production and metabolism.

9.      Seaweed:

Seaweeds like kelp, wakame, arame and dulse can be found in Asian grocery stores and health food stores.  It can be eaten dried, straight out of the bag, or added to soups, salads and vegetables.  Seaweed contains the broadest range of minerals of any food – the same minerals found in the ocean and in human blood.  It also contains pantothenic acid and riboflavin – two B-vitamins needed for your body to produce energy.

10.     Almonds:

These tasty nuts are rich in manganese and copper, both of which are essential cofactors of an enzyme called superoxide dismutase.  This enzyme helps keep energy flowing by inhibiting free radicals inside cells’ mitochondria (the energy-producing area of cells).  Plus, they also contain riboflavin, another important component of energy production.

11.     Cantaloupe:

This melon is an exceptional energy food because of its combination of vitamin B-6, dietary fiber, folate, and niacin (vitamin B-3).  The vitamins (necessary for the body to process sugars and carbs) combined with fiber (which helps the sugar be distributed gradually) support energy production by keeping blood sugar levels stable.

12.     Kiwi:

With more vitamin C than an equal amount of orange, kiwi is a potent energy-boosting food.  When vitamin C levels are depleted, people often feel tired.

13.     Oatmeal:

The morning favorite is loaded with soluble fiber, a key to slowing down carbohydrate absorption and keeping blood sugar levels steady.

14.     Water:

Though not a “food” per se, water is necessary for your body to produce energy, including the energy needed for digesting, absorbing and transporting nutrients.  If you don’t drink enough of it, your cells will be less able to receive the nutrients they need for energy, leaving you feeling sluggish.  If plain water doesn’t appeal to you, try spicing it up with a squeeze of lemon, lime or other citrus.

 Foods To Boost YOUR Libido:

 15.     Pomegranate Juice:

New research on animals shows it may reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction.

16.     Oatmeal:

Along with giving you energy, eating oats helps to produce a chemical that releases testosterone in your body, which may help increase your sex drive and orgasm strength.

 17.     Honey:

The B vitamins in honey also boost testosterone production while boron in honey helps your body use estrogen, which is important for arousal.

18.     Eggs:

Aside from being a symbol of fertility, eggs are high in vitamins B6 and B5, which may help your libido by balancing hormone levels and fighting stress.

19.     Bananas:

They contain an enzyme called bromelain, which may help increase libido and even reverse impotence in men.

20.     Celery:

Celery contains androsterone, a hormone released in men’s sweat that’s said to be a turn-on for women.  Really!

Most of all, you should strive to eat a diet full of fresh foods, as these will give you more energy and  a brighter outlook than a diet of mostly processed foods.  Make sure to include plenty of protein as well – your body needs it to keep organs functioning and energy levels up.  If your diet is insufficient in high quality protein, a supplement may be useful.  High quality protein shakes can also help you meet your protein needs and boost moods.

 Remember, you are what you EAT – DIGEST – ASSIMILATE!

So, if you want to Boost YOUR Moods, Increase YOUR Energy and Improve YOUR Sex Life let me suggest you start making some lifestyle changes – TODAY!  You can’t keep doing what you’ve always done and expect any changes in your health.  It’s a process, but so worth while, I tell you from experience.   Assessing and focusing on eating what your body’s “clues” are telling you may be an eye-opening experience!

Doctors are only recently discovering the causes and effects of leaky gut syndrome.Leaky

 “Physicians don’t know enough about the gut, which is our biggest immune system organ,” says Donald kirby, gastroenterologist and director of the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Human Nutrition.

What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Your small intestine is responsible for screening toxins from your body.  It’s the largest organ in your body, representing two-thirds of the immune system and it’s the first line of defense in keeping you well.

Think of it as you would a coffee filter.  If you pour dirty water through a fresh, undamaged filter, the fine weave would capture most of the tiny particles and all of the larger ones.

leaky3If you were to then take an ice pick and poke holes in the filter, then pour that same dirty water through again – the result would be much different.  This time, most of the tiny pieces and even a portion of the larger pieces would pass through.

Your small intestine is the “filter” of the body.  Inflammation caused by drug interactions, poor diet and chronic stress (dis-stress) acts like an ice pick – poking holes in the intestinal lining.

Once these holes exist in your intestine, your gut literally leaksundigested food particles, bacteria, toxins and parasites into your blood, harmful substances that were once captured and flushed out of your body as waste.

Understandably, your body doesn’t respond well to these items floating around in your bloodstream.  Your body creates an immune response to attack – which results in more inflammation.

Scientists believe this process causes a chain reaction that leads to many other problems throughout the body.  They’re often unable to diagnose leaky gut syndrome specifically and are usually forced to work backward to diagnosis.

Author Leo Gallard, M.D. says leaky gut is often undiagnosed but is vitally important to overall health because many – seemingly unrelated – conditions are either caused by or worsened by this mystery illness.

Leaky Gut Syndrome Has Been Linked To:

   *       Arthritis

   *       Chronic fatigue

   *       Depression, anxiety or other mental disorders

   *       Allergies, hives, acne, eczema or psoriasis

   *       Inflammatory bowel disease

   *       Irritable bowel syndrome

   *       Fibromyalgia

Healing Leaky Gut:

   *       Stop all consumption of alcohol

   *       Avoid using pain relievers such as naproxen, aspirin or ibuprofen

   *       Talk to your doctor about testing for leaky gut syndrome

   *       Avoid inflammatory foods that are high in acid, fat or sugar

   *       Increase your fiber consumption

If you simply don’t feel “right” but your doctor is unable to find the root cause of your discomfort, you may want to talk to him/her about the possibility of leaky gut syndrome.  Unexplained chronic pain, fatigue, feelings of depression, bowel distress or a skin condition that isn’t responding to treatment could point to this often overlooked condition.

You may want to check out my online radio show on the “Gut” – worth your time to listen to this and many others.  My shows are educational, often controversial, but always the truth – as I see it!

Never take your health for granted, it’s the only body you have so may I suggest that YOU – Plan for Tomorrow’s Good Health – TODAY!

6 Food to Help With Cravings

6-Foods For Your Cravings

While experts agree that eating healthy meals and avoiding snacks during the day helps keep your weight in check, there’s exceptions to the rule.

Choosing snacks that are rich in healthy fat and fiber helps keep craving at bay so you’ll actually eat less at meals. About 5-minutes after fat enters the stomach, a hormone called enterogastrone is released, causing it to empty at a much slower rate.  Thus you feel fuller, longer.

The effect of fiber as a hunger suppressant actually starts the moment you take a bite.  Foods full of fiber: think apples or whole grain bread – require more work to chew.  Increased chewing slows down your eating so your body has more time to realize it’s full, so you eat less.6tips

If you’re trying to lose weight, but find yourself plagued by hunger pangs, there are certain foods that can help you curb your appetite.

Foods to help to fight hunger:

    1.     Almonds and avocados:

A handful of almonds or half an avocado on whole grain toast calms the appetite quickly.

   2.      Green tea: 

Green tea contains EGCG, a chemical that has been proven in studies to curb the appetite.  Stay away from sugary bottled brands and brew your own green tea from bags or loose-leaf tea.

   3.      Spicy foods:

Just one spicy buffalo wing or a piece of Kung Pao chicken can actually suppress your appetite.  Even though these are high-calorie foods you will eat less in the long-term.

   4.      Coffee:

Just like drinking a glass of water before a meal temporarily signals fullness to your stomach, research shows that coffee works the same way.  But coffee also contains caffeine, which boosts metabolism and suppresses appetite.

   5.      Fatty fish:

Not only are fish like salmon, sardines, and herring rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, they also suppress hunger by altering the body’s level of the hormone leptin.  Leptin is the hormone that tells your body that it’s full so you’ll stay sated longer. I often snack on shrimp, squeeze some fresh lemon and dip (easy) in seafood sauce.

   6.      Lean protein:

For my person snacks I like high-protein foods.  Eggs, turkey or chicken slices, tofu and others can provide a prolonged sense of fullness without the swings in blood sugar that carbs create.

These 6 things can help flush fats out of your body.  If your interested in losing weight I want to offer you a couple of suggestions.

   1.      If you order my individualized HealthTest© – along with finding out where you’re nutrient deficient and being able to help your body become nutrient sufficient.

B Vitamins Prevent Macular Degeneration:CVD2

More good news in the B Vitamin department:  Data from the Women’s Antioxidant and Folic Acid Cardiovascular Study (WAFAC), involving more than 5,400 women with cardiovascular disease or risk factors, showed that supplementation with a combination of folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 reduced the 7-year incidence of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by one-third.

CVD3The women were randomized to placebo or a combination of folic acid (2.5 mg/day), vitamin B6 (50 mg/day) and vitamin B12 (1 mg/day), as part of a cardiovascular risk reduction intervention.  All of the patients were over age 40, and two-thirds of them had histories of cardiovascular disease.  The remainder had three or more CVD risk factors.

In a sub-analysis to determine whether B vitamins lowered the incidence, the researchers found that with an average follow-up of 7 years, the incidence of AMD was 3% in the placebo group versus 2% in the B vitamin group.  Forty-four of the placebo-treated women developed “visually significant” AMD versus only 26 of those taking B vitamins.

We know that elevated levels are associated with increased risk for AMD and B vitamins lower homocysteine.  The current study suggests that supplementation with these 3 B vitamins can lower the risk for AMD, although it’s not clear if this benefit is directly related to homocysteine-lowing or is attributable to some other mechanism(s).

In this writer’s opinion it is always best to start with a complete B vitamin complex, you are still low or very-low in any vitamin after a couple of months then, and only then should you increase.

kid_fast_foodMalnutrition is the foundation of ALL Diseases!

Starvation is NOT a third world problem.  It’s an American tragedy.  The people in Africa don’t have enough volume of food.  We Americans have plenty of “food,” but it’s empty food.

The food we eat produces plenty of calories and energy, but it’s almost completely devoid of nutrition which is vital to our survival.

Nutrition deficiencies has long-term effects and it’s well hidden.  If food tastes good, conceals hunger and produces calories and energy, we feel ok for a time.  But if nutrition is missing and even with full bellies, we begin to starve.

There’s no greater illusion and deception than empty foods; that is, foods without nutrition.  No standing army is as dangerous to the American people as the giant commercial food industry that makes and sells billions of dollars worth of foodless foods.  This is a conspiracy that no one suspects.  And when the food processors “add back vitamins,” they are synthetics, not whole food complexes as found in nature.

Where is the proof?  Well, the proof is that nutrition is used for therapy throughout the world.

Nearly Every Human Health Problem Has a Nutritional Remedy:

For example, it’s universally known that vitamin A, and do note that there is a different between beta-carotene which can’t be converted to vitamin A by those of us who have  an autoimmune disease, such as Hypothyroidism, which by the way is epidemic today and seldom diagnosed which is eye food and without it there you would develop night blindness.

If I caught your interest when I mentioned Hypothyroidism – check out a couple of shows on the subject on my online radio show which will give you a great deal of information.,

Anemia is due to an iron deficiency along with B vitamin deficiency.

Heart problems are prevented and relieved by adequate vitamin E and vitamin B and others.

So, if Nutrition Heals, Then Malnutrition Kills:

Maternal-malnutritionYou probably know that doctors recommend folic acid for pregnant mothers to avert spinal bifida.  Folic acid is essential nutrition to unborn babies, as well as you and me.  Folic acid along with B-12 prevents or cures pernicious anemia, a serious malady that can kill you.

And it goes on and on and still medical orthodoxy plays down the connection of nutrition and health.  Then there are others selling supplements without any credential or formal training on the subject.   Most  don’t know what they should be buying for their own nutritional deficiencies.

Do you go to the shoemaker if you have a heart condition?  I think not!

Do you fix your car – or do you take it to a reliable mechanic?  It’s only a car – do you need it if you’re dead?  No!   It’s time to stop buying until you actually know what you’re body is nutrient deficient in and then and only then can a properly balanced a supplement program that will actually do you good.

You can’t depend on orthodox medicine if you want to live a long and healthy life.  You must take matters into your own hands.  It’s your right!  Do your homework!  Take responsibility for your own health!  You can start today by ordering Dr. Henry’s HealthTest©).

Are YOU Starving To Death? You May Be Without Even Knowing It!

A good diet promotes good health and prevents the onset of disease.  Unfortunately, most Americans don’t have a good diet and therefore are very likely to be deficient in nutrition that is essential for their health.childhoodobesity1

One of the greatest crises of the 20th century was the flu epidemic of 1918. This epidemic killed more people than all the wars of this century together.  75 million people died.  The truth is that they didn’t die of the flu.   They got the flu because of mass malnutrition and disease.  The first World War had monopolized the food supplies, leaving scant supplies of nutritional food for the population in the United States and Europe.

Four years of war exhausted and starved (because of malnutrition) millions and millions of people.  They were now so highly susceptible to diseases as many are today.

There are 2 kinds of starvation:

  1.      The starvation that comes about because of no food at all.

  2.      The second and more insidious starvation is progressive malnutrition over a period of time.

Many seniors today die of pneumonia and the medical establishment can do nothing about it because they refuse to recommend nutrition in the way of proper food choices and supplementing with nutrients to deal with their nutrient deficiencies – most only know about writing another toxic prescription for the current symptom(s).  And they won’t hire a qualified clinical nutritionist (not a dietician).

There is a second problem with malnutrition.  It has to do with the great illusion and myth that synthetic vitamins and/or natural isolated vitamins will supplement one’s diet and support the immune system, as well as promote general good health.  This is only partially true.

The science of food  today is based on chemistry.  There are some in the commercial vitamin industry in America producing and selling counterfeit vitamins.  They’re capitalizing on public gullibility with the deception that isolated food factors or synthetic vitamins are nutritional and healthy.

Obese-manThe commercial food industry supplies a vast amount of colorfully packaged foods that produce calories and energy but contain no nutritionSo-called food without nutrition is no better than starvation.  We call it full belly starvation.

The simple answer to the lack of nutrition in the American diet is supplementation with whole food complexes.  I’m talking about live whole food complexes which contain live nutrition for live people.  What a concept!

Causes and Health Risks of Being Overweight

Factors Promoting Weight Gain:

Being overweight or obese is influenced by complex interactions.  These include genetics, the modern refined diet, neurotransmitter function and activity level.

Recent research has shown that the type and amount of carbohydrates and fats you eat can actually turn on or turn off gene expression that either promotes weight gain or weight loss.

Dr.Rhonda Before_After pdfIf your excess weight centers mainly around the mid-section, you have gained weight in the most troublesome area.  This fat is called abdominal (or central) obesity and often surrounds internal organs.  Excess fat here is associated the most with weight related health risks.  Abdominal obesity also elevates adrenal stress hormones, and visa versa.

These hormones have a complex interaction with brain neurotransmitters, which affect mood and appetite control.  A diet that is high in sugars, refined carbohydrates, starchy vegetables and refined vegetables oils promotes abdominal weight gain and visceral fat accumulation.

In order to lose weight and improve body com
position over the long-term, a dietary and metabolic return to balance is needed.  I would suggest you check out my copywriten, scientifically approved, educational and personally designed HealthTest© which will give you all the helpful information to STOP, The Food & Vitamin Guessing Game!™, once and for all.

Whether you want to lose weight, gain weight, or just want to find out where your system is and how you should be eating accordingly, your answers will be analyzed individually and your program will put you onto Health Street.

Weight Related Health Risks:

The following table demonstrates several risks associated with being overweight or obese.

Table 1.   Health Risks Associated with Being Overweight or Obese:


  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Some Cancers
  • Insulin Resistance
  • Gout
  • Type-2 Diabetes
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Respiratory Disease
  • Gallbladder Disease
  • Cholesterol / Lipid Imbalances
  • Reproductive Disorders
  • High Blood Pressure / Stroke
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Reflux Disease
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease


Determining Potential for Weight Related Health Risks:

ObesogensBody Mass Index
, or BMI, provides a good estimate of body fat content in most adults by correlating height and weight.  Higher BMI values are associated with increased health risks.  The lower the BMI, the lower the health risk.  Waist circumference can also predict health risks, since excess abdominal fat is an independent risk factor.

The Mood-Food Response Factor (MFR):

Brain neurotransmitters and stress hormones significantly contribute to weight gain and obesity through their effect on appetite and emotions.  One of the hardest obstacles for people attempting to lose weight is to control repetitious emotional and stress-related eating behavior.  This is referred to as Mood-Food Response (MFR) eating.  This is more an emotional response rather than a physiological one of actual hunger.

If you experience some or all of the following, MFR eating may be contributing to your weight gain.

  • Craving carbohydrate-rich foods, such as bread and sweets.
  • Unable to control hunger, and eating when not hungry
  • Eating to remain in control or in a comfort zone.
  • Eating when bored, moody, lonely, angry, worried, or upset.
  • Routinely eating until stuffed at meals.
  • Eating excessively at social situations.
  • Eating more when alone; often binging.
  • Repeatedly failing at dieting and regaining weight easily.
  • Often thinking about food and planning activities around eating.
  • Avoiding physical activity and exercise.

Break The MFR Eating Cycle:

My approach to weight-loss (Lose Weight PERMANENTLY By Eating) can help YOU:

  • Maintain healthy neurotransmitter production and modulate stress hormone levels.
  • Slow the rate of carbohydrate digestion, supporting glucose metabolism.
  • Control stress-related appetite and food cravings, and lessen hunger between meals.

One-Size-Fits-All Does Not Work:

This is not news for anyone who has had to lose 10 pounds or 100 pounds.  To be successful in anything where your
health is concerned you must first decide that I am really ready to lose weight.  Once you have decided this and are serious, then it’s time to fine the program that is Right for YOU!    If I can be of any help to you in your Health Journey, just contact me and we’ll talk!
