  1. Winter Citrus

    You may have noticed that your local grocery store produce department is packed full of beautiful, winter citrus fruits. Winter brings a wide variety of juicy, tangy oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, lemons, limes, and even kumquats, making it the perfect time to feast on citrus. Citrus fruits are some of the best sources of Vitamin C and can play a powerful role in providing seasonal immune support. They’re also a powerful antioxidant that can help prevent inflammation and neutralize the free radicals that damage healthy cells. Vitamin C is essential for building collagen, an important body...

  2. Staying on Track in the New Year

    *By Julee Morrison from Mommy’s Memorandum It's a new year and for many of us there's a resolution or goal that is focused on weight. According to Statistic Brain , “Losing Weight” was the top New Years Resolution for 2014 and "Staying Fit and Healthy" number 5. Weight-related resolutions are the second most popular type of resolution, second only to "self-improvement". For many, we lose our commitment before the first month of the year has passed. Much of this may be contributed to the fact that we tend to try and make it all happen immediately and...

  4. Balanced Cereal Solutions

    I often hear clients complain that they love the way they feel following the 40-30-30 Formula diet, but they miss eating an occasional bowl of breakfast cereal. The good news is, you don’t have to give up cereal if you simply learn how to make it part of a balanced meal. Cereal is primarily a high-glycemic carbohydrate food. When you eat a bowl of cereal with added quality protein and a little healthy fat, you can lower the high glycemic response of the cereal, slowing its conversion into glucose, thereby helping to maintain normal blood sugar and insulin levels. Begin by choosing a low sugar...

  5. What About the Paleo Diet?

    I’m often asked about the Paleo diet in comparison to the 40-30-30 Formula. The Paleo diet, also known as the “Caveman Diet”, recommends eating the way our stone age ancestors ate, primarily wild plants and animals. The diet recommendations include organic meats, poultry, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds to work with your genetics to help you stay lean and energetic. In fact, with that description, it sounds very similar to the Fat Flush Formula in our book, The Formula. However, one of the main differences between the diets is the recommended macro-nutrient ratios of...

  6. Proactive Steps To Stay Healthy This Winter

    With cold, winter months upon us, start thinking about proactive steps you can take to boost your immunity to help stay healthy all winter. A good place to start is to remind yourself and family members to wash their hands more often with soap and water and try to keep from touching their nose and eyes to help minimize the spread of illnesses like colds and flu. Flu viruses can live up to 8 hours on surfaces, so wash hands often with soap for 15 to 30 seconds to effectively kill germs. Of course, also try to avoid being around people with cold or flu symptoms and stay mindful of your surroundings...

  7. Shish Kabobs

    Even though winter is here, don’t stop grilling delicious, healthy meals. One of my favorite meals is Shish Kabobs, marinated protein with lots of fruit and vegetables grilled on a stick. Let’s face it, you can’t get much healthier than that. Fruits and vegetables are loaded with healthy nutrients and contain only a small amount of low-to-medium glycemic carbohydrates and fiber to effectively keep your diet on track. You can enjoy a wide variety of Shish Kabobs by choosing one or several protein choices. Beef, lamb, pork, turkey, chicken breast, white fish, lobster, scallops or...

  8. Holiday Power Shake

    This year when you find yourself racing through the holidays, try to make sure to start each day with a 40-30-30 balanced breakfast that can have you feeling great all morning. A balanced breakfast with approximately 40% of the calories from carbohydrate, 30% from protein, and 30% from fat will help keep blood sugar balanced and support energy levels. Some of my favorite breakfast choices are 40-30-30 balanced protein smoothies. They combine the carbohydrates, protein and fat in a delicious, nutrient-dense, ready-to-drink meal. I’m always challenging myself to make new flavors with seasonal...

  9. A Heads Up On Those Holiday Coffee Drinks

    When the holidays roll around, so do those special holiday flavored coffee drinks at your local coffee shop. They seem to be especially tempting half way through those busy, long shopping days. Unfortunately, they can be high in fat and very high in sugar and just one 16-ounce minty, mocha drink can contain up to 520 calories and a whopping 78 grams or more of carbohydrates. When you’re trying to keep your blood sugar balanced and increase your body’s ability to utilize its energy stores, this is definitely a drink to avoid. But, every year I get asked the best way to make adjustments...

  10. Last Minute Holiday Gift

    If you’re still looking for a unique and thoughtful gift for the health and fitness enthusiasts on your holiday shopping list, consider a high-powered, portable blender to make sticking with their 2014 New Year’s diet resolutions easier. A blender is the number one kitchen gadget I recommend my clients use when following a healthy, balanced diet. My favorite blenders are the portable-stick or bullet styles that are easy to store and travel with. When you start each day with a healthy, balanced smoothie, you can help build muscle, stabilize blood sugar levels already within a normal...
