Healthy For Life Nutrition Seminar

Did you know that 3 out of 4 people by the age of 65 WILL develop a degenerative disease? 50 % of them will develop 2 degenerative diseases! That is scary.

Degenerative diseases include Cardiovascular disease, Cancer, Diabetes, Alzheimers and Arthritis just to name a few!

The best thing is that we can control and prevent these types of diseases!

Attending last night's Healthy for Life Nutrtion Seminar really opened my eyes. I knew about what the world was dying of, but Carmen Marshall educated everyone very well on how we can take control of our lives! We need to be more aware of what we are putting into and on our bodies.

There are 3 easy steps one can take to turn their life around.

1. Take a high quality, pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplement!

You can't just take any supplement off the market.
You need to know what is in it, how it is made and where it is manufacutured.
Most supplements are regulated by the FDA (food and drug association) and they don't require high quality control and they don't require that every table has exactly what is stated on the bottle.
The ingredients on the bottle are just averages of what is inside!
One tablet could have 100 IU of vitamin E and another have 40 IU of vitamin E while the label says 400 IU of vitamin E.
Scary huh.

Taking several different supplements from different manufactures can also be VERY
harmful to you because they don't mix together!

2. Exercise i5-6 times a week!

This is for 30-60 mins and can be as simple as a walk. Don't do anything that you don't like to
do and make it fun!

3. You need to eat LOW Glycemic foods!

These are foods that don't spike your blood sugar levels. They maintain your blood sugar
level so that you don't spike it and you don't drop it at dramatic levels.

When your young you can pretty much eat whatever you want and the weight doesn't seem to
affect you.
But by spiking and droping your blood sugar levels 5 times a day for 20 -30 years your body can't handle it anymore and tells you it can't by putting more weight on especially around your belly.
Your body is not allowing your insulin to regulate your blood sugar like it did when you were younger.
It is tired of working so hard for so many years.
This is how we increase our chances for type 2 diabetes!

By making these changes in your life you will start to improve your living. It starts with us, our habits are being passed down to our children.

33% of children born in America today will develope type 2 diabetes. If your black or hispanic, that number is 50%!

Let's pass down wonderful lifestyle habits to our children so they, as well as us, can live longer, healthier lives!

Eat your antioxidants, Don't drink them!

Your cells are constantly being damaged by free radicals. Free radicals come from stress, environmental hazards and also from eating a fatty meal. You can begin to rebuild your cells by supplying them with optimal nutrition that they need.

Many people swear by juice products and how you can get all your antioxidants from them. Well USANA looked at them, had them tested and found that their claims weren't so true. So, they came up with a bar that gives you Ten times the antioxidant power then most juice products.

See what I mean ---- TenX Blasts Away the Competition such as Zrii, Xango, Mona Vie, g3, and Tahitian Noni.

The TexX Blast is the best product for your money!

Also check out how the TenX antioxidant bar equals in servings of apple juice, orange juice and coffee!

I have one everyday and so should you! Give your body the nutrition it needs.

To your Health!!!

Health and Freedom

Last night I attended a local Health and Freedom Presentation in Denver. It just reinforced the fact that USANA Health Sciences is the right company. The presentation was presented by two very professional, personable individuals: Tom Mullen and Carmen Marshall.

There was a training before the presentation that was amazing. USANA has been voted the #1 Home Based Business for 10 years in a row by top Network Marketing Publications. To make it more exciting, USANA has just added 2 incredible enhancements to the compensation plan to make it even easier for the average person to earn commissions by just working on ONE side of their business and also to give elite associates an added bonus for helping others succeed.

In fact, USANA has over 115 people in the Million Dollar Club. What does that mean? These individuals have made over $1 million dollars through USANA. With that huge number, it just reinforces the fact that ANYONE can do this business and make money!

In a regular job setting, people are competing for higher ranks to make extra money, right? There are only a certain number of positions, not every one can be a manager or CEO and make the big bucks. With USANA, you earn the amount you want through your own efforts! Even better, the more you help others achieve success, the more you get rewarded with USANA!! It is a team effort. Everyone helps everyone, even if your cross line.

I happened to be cross line to this team but they welcomed my business partner and I and allowed us to be part of their organization. They open their doors to anyone and everyone. If you give to others, it will come back to you!

Also in the training we heard from their top leaders and what they took away from Convention. It was just amazing to hear about the guest speakers that USANA had: Robert Kiyosaki, Paul Zane Pilzner, Tim Sales, Denis Waitley and Dr. Myron Wentz. The message I took from them was that these individuals have great respect for USANA.

USANA's vision "To manufacture the highest quality, science-based products that people can trust--what is on the label is in the bottle--providing maximum bioavailablity for better health around the world and giving everyone the opportunity for a better quality of life!"

I know that before I got started with USANA, I wanted a better way of life. Not only for myself, but for my family. I followed my gut and intuition which lead me to the path of USANA. You should do the same, follow your intuiton! Help others and help yourself.

Do you know what your getting?

About 70% of Americans are taking some type of nutritional supplement on a daily basis. We know that the food that we are eating these days is not providing us the nutrition that our bodies need to stay healthy.

When it comes to a supplement, are you getting what your paying for? Do you know what your getting? Is your supplement actually dissolving in your body or is just passing through?

Most supplements on the market are manufactured to the food standard by the FDA. What does this mean? Lets think about a box of chocolate chip cookies. On the box it might say, 10 chocolate chips. However when you pull out 2 cookies, 1 might have 5 chips and the other might have 12. what is on the box is an average.

That is how most supplements on the market are produced. The label gives a number but one tablet might have less nutrients and another one might have more. Its an average! To top it off, that table might not even dissolve in your body. So then you aren't even getting any nutrients.

I have found a book called "Nutrisearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements" by Lyle McWilliams to be very helpful. This scientist looked at over 1500 different supplements on the market and tested bioavailablity, nutrients, etc so that people could make informed decisions on the type of supplement they need to give their cells.

You truly get what you pay for!
