Simple Swaps for Healthy Eating and Weight-Loss!
You don't have to starve yourself or exercise for hours to see results. A few dietary changes can make a huge difference on your waist!
Swap #1: Use Greens such as Cabbage, Collard Greens or Lettuce in place of bread. This swap can save you anywhere from 70-150 calories per slice! Health perks: better cholesterol levels, increased fiber, and anticancer compounds.
Swap #2: Spaghetti Squash instead of Pasta! The noodle like flesh of spaghetti squash has a similar consistency to pasta. The added fiber fills you up and spaghetti squash is full of anti-oxidants! These will help you recover faster from workouts and speed up results! You 'll save about 30 grams of carbs per cup! No guilt either!
In the next few episodes we'll cover the main sections of the upcoming Motivation Course. This is a transformation and ”personal power” academy that I have been working on.
By the way, there are currently only 8 of the original Fitness Makeover Workshop Kits left! The kits will not be reprinted! If you want this material on DVD, and all the workbooks now's your last chance! Find it at the ProShop.

Let's focus on Module 1 Self-talk.
Remember the mantra podcast? Did you do it?
What is your mantra?
Here's some examples: I am strong and powerful, I am consistent, I eat healthy etc. These are the daily talks you have with yourself (usually inside your head) and this goes hand in hand with self-esteem. How would you rate your self-esteem on a level of 1 (lowest) to 10 (the best)?
Healthy self-esteem consists of:
Respect for your own abilities, potentials, and value.
Know your strengths and trust in them.
Appreciate and accept your limitations.
Understand that other peoples perceptions of us, do not determine who we are (on our inside).
Remember: a diamond doesn’t know its own value, but it is still a diamond nonetheless.
Everyone is a diamond! Some shine sooner than others but eventually they are all priceless, just like you!
