We all love a good outfit. But fashion is cruel to animals, cruel to people and cruel to the planet. Especially luxury fashion, which is synonymous with fur, cashmere, leather, angora and silk. Can fashion ever be compassionate? It can now.

 

Meg and Komie were raised vegetarian. From a very young age they understood that animals are not here for food. Also from a young age, they loved nothing more than customizing their outfits. As they started shopping, they found it nearly impossible to find clothes they liked that were also cruelty-free. That’s why they created Delikate Rayne, a 100% vegan, sustainable, luxury clothing line made in LA. Their mission: to make a positive impact and give back through something people love - great fashion! And they’re spreading the message, having recently been featured in the prominent fashion publication PAPER.

 

What’s so wrong with fast fashion? Firstly, the impact on animals: it’s a myth that fur and leather are by-products of the meat industry. Animals are raised specifically for that purpose, they are confined in tiny cages, tortured and slaughtered for their skin. Secondly, the impact on the environment. Constantly changing trends mean there is an incredible amount of waste. The process of dying fabrics pollutes water. And finally, the social impact. If you’re paying $10 for a t-shirt, how much is the person who made it getting paid?

 

The solution? To go for a brand that is vegan, affordable, sustainable AND gorgeous… we love Delikate Rayne’s fashion range that ticks all these boxes.

 

Meg and Komie’s tips for green shopping and living:

  • Keep a reusable bottle (have a few so you always have one to hand)
  • Shop in thrift stores - have a clear idea of what you want and then go search for it
  • Buy high-quality timeless pieces rather than an abundance of cheap clothes
  • Host a fashion pot-luck evening and swap clothes with your friends

 

Check out Delikate Rayne’s game changer movement in partnership with PETA.

Diets don’t work. Neither do New Year’s resolutions. Just 3% of people who go on a diet successfully lose weight. Why? They’re based on the idea that if you lose weight, you’ll transform your life. In fact, you need to transform your life first, then the weight loss will happen.

 

Alli was a healthy plant-based holistic salad eater by day…. sugar junkie by night. Sugar addiction ruled her life. Nothing she tried ever worked. Until she met David Zappazodi. Now, her cravings for sugar have disappeared.

 

David Zappazodi has been a healthcare professional specializing in weight loss for over 20 years. He uses radical methods. Instead of coaching people to find their why, and motivating them to change their habits, he tells his clients to stop exercising and eat the junk foods they crave several times a day. It sounds nuts. But…. It works.

 

How do you transform your life first? You have to focus on the struggles that are preventing the weight loss, and then focus on the weight loss itself. To do this, David uses three brain flips that tackle cravings, overeating, and exercising.

 

Brain Flip Your Cravings

Cravings are like bullies. You have to stand up to them in a way that lets them know you’re not going to be pushed around. Trying to avoid bullies, or fight them, doesn't work long-term. It's the same with your cravings. You might try avoiding your cravings, but that doesn’t work. Eventually the cravings win. Then you indulge and feel guilty. The only way to free yourself is to eat the food you crave… but eat it in a different pattern.

 

Think about it. You’ve resisted for so long, then finally you give in. In that moment when you indulge, there is pleasure. This is the core point where things need to change. If you create pain in the moment of indulgence, then you begin to flip your brain to eradicate your desire for that particular food. How? By creating a pain tool. This is a recording of what could go wrong in your life if you don’t solve this issue, which you listen to while you eat the food. By inserting pain in that indulgence, you begin to make friends with your cravings. You stop associating indulging with pleasure, and the cravings subside.

 

Brain Flip Overeating:

The way David tackles overeating is to get his clients to split their usual portion into two plates. You eat the first one normally, but you eat the second portion while listening to another pain tool, so you learn to associate being overfull with being in pain. This creates another brain flip.

 

Brain Flip Exercise:

David calls this the body brain flip. Now that the cravings and overeating are dealt with, it’s time to reprogram your brain to look at exercise in a completely new way. David gets his clients to create a vision tool - the opposite to a pain tool. Imagine the best that could happen to you as you transform your health and lose the weight, and listen to that audio several times a day to really connect with the feeling of joy. This turns around your usual thinking about exercise being a chore, into something you’re excited about doing. And when you’re excited about doing something, it becomes effortless.

 

Want more? Check out Episode 233, where David delves deep into how the brain flip works to free you of chaotic or compulsive eating.

 

 

David’s tips to reduce your cravings:

  • If you’re really struggling - schedule a free call with David at www.brainflipweightloss.com/talk
  • Increase the enjoyment of healthy foods - for example listen to great music when you eat them - this will create a positive association
  • Don’t eat healthy foods while you’re stressed - it will create a negative association
  • Don’t allow indulging in the cravings to de-stress you. Relax first, and then indulge.
  • Disconnect indulging in your cravings with usual activity (like eating ice cream while watching tv) - indulge in a different environment
  • Don’t use junk food as a reward - ask yourself “how can I reward myself without eating junk food, in ways that would be even more enjoyable?”
  • Join David’s Facebook support group

You can save animals from factory farms. You can shift culture. You can stop rainforests from being chopped down. You can help communities. You can create the kind of world you want to live in. This is the power of your fork. The food revolution is a revolution you can fight peacefully, and everyone wins: the animals, the people, and our environment.

 

Food really matters. It’s the foundation of good health. But unfortunately, for many people it can also be the foundation of disease. A standard American diet means standard American diseases.

 

This is something Ocean Robbins witnessed in his own family history. His grandfather was one of the founders of Baskin-Robbins. His dad refused to go into the business, and walked away from a path paved with gold and ice-cream. He moved to an island off Canada with his wife, built a log cabin, grew vegetables, practiced yoga several hours a day, and had a child: Ocean.

 

From this island, Ocean’s dad wrote the book Diet for a New America, which helped thousands of people rethink their food choices. One of his readers ended up being his own father, who, after years of eating a standard American diet, was at death’s door. But making the changes suggested in the book, he reversed his heart disease and diabetes, lost 30 pounds, and lived 19 more healthy years.

 

When Ocean was 16, inspired by his dad and grandfather, he founded a nonprofit called Yes, and travelled to 65 countries giving talks and helping young activists build a healthier world for future generations. It was during these travels that Ocean realized how much of an impact food has on our health. He saw that as the American way of eating and producing food was expanding, so too were the diseases related to this diet. He realized food was at the source of a lot of the suffering on the planet: the torture of animals, the use of chemical poisons to grow crops and hijack our taste buds, the subsidies given to support the unhealthiest foods.

 

In 2012, Ocean joined forces with his dad and launched the Food Revolution Network, to promote healthy, sustainable food for everyone. They push for policy changes that could change our world. One of their goals is to make sure medical doctors get proper nutrition education. They also lobby to stop policies that support junk foods, and get the food industry to take health seriously.

 

But perhaps the most important goal is to share this life-boosting information with as many people as possible and help them put healthy change into action - not just for themselves, but for their community and the whole world.

 

We’re so excited to announce that Ocean’s new book 31-Day Food Revolution is out today. It’s packed with information and a step by step plan to put new habits into action.

 

The 4 principles to starting your own Food Revolution:

  • Less sugar and processed junk
  • Less animal products
  • More whole plant foods (veg, greens, legumes, whole grains, fruits - lots of fiber)
  • Conscious sourcing - buy food that is organically, ethically, and fairly produced

 

How to be plant-based affordably:

  • Stop buying calories that are toxic (from junk foods)
  • Avoid food waste - plan ahead, cook up extra meals and freeze them
  • Eat out less
  • Buy the real superfoods - cabbage, carrots, onions, beans, quinoa, spices…

 

All these things put together can get you to ultimate vitality and help create a better world.

 

But it’s about more than just health. Food can also connect us. Ocean’s book gives tips to help you be a positive influencer, teach people about nutrition in a loving way, and how you can build a community. Because we are not lone wolves, we need community to thrive.

 

And for every copy of the book that’s ordered, Ocean will donate to Trees for the Future, a nonprofit that plants trees all over the world. Every time a new copy is ordered, they will plant an organic fruit or nut tree in a disadvantaged community. This means when you order Ocean’s new book, you participate in the food revolution right away.

World renowned keynote speaker, best-selling author, world traveler… and she recently got engaged in Bali after one of the most epic proposal stories we’ve ever heard! But Sahara Rose wasn’t always a glowing picture of health and success.

 

In fact, she went through a really tough time - she didn’t have periods, lost her hair, suffered from bloating and constipation. No one could find the cause or cure the problem. Until one day she read about the Vata dosha - it was like reading her autobiography. Following ayurvedic practices to bring this dosha back into balance, Sahara regained her health.

 

But it was hard - Ayurveda processes are old school, and many don’t work for today’s busy lifestyles. So Sahara decided to redesign these ancient practices to fit the modern world.

 

Her two books - The Idiot’s guide to Ayurveda, and Eat Feel Fresh (with a foreword by Deepak Chopra!) offer simple and easy to follow strategies to get your doshas, and your health, back into balance.

 

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is over 5000 years old; it’s the world’s oldest heath system. It means “the knowledge of life.” Ayurveda involves your entire life in order to heal you: nutrition, digestion, self-care, movement, morning rituals, your environment, your relationships, and your purpose. 

 

What Dosha Are You?

Dosha means energy. In Ayurveda, we’re all made up of three energies from the elements space, air, fire, water and earth. The three doshas are Vata (air and space), Pita (fire and water) and Katha (earth and water).

 

  • Vata

Mind: creative, artistic, go with the flow, visionary… but if unbalanced: difficulty coming down to earth, anxiety, everything up in the air, head in the clouds, not liking a set schedule

Body: lean, flexible… but if unbalanced: cold skin, slow digestion, bloating, cracking joints, unbalanced appetite, dry skin.

 

  • Pita

Mind: feisty, high energy, driven, business-minded, regimented, likes routine, motivated…. But if unbalanced: angry, aggressive.

Body: strong and athletic… but if unbalanced: high risk of inflammation, heart burn, acne, rashes.

 

  • Katha

Mind: calm, peaceful, very giving… but if unbalanced: gives too much, unable to set boundaries, people pleaser.

Body: solid, endurance… but if unbalanced: lethargic and prone to increased mucous. 

 

We are all a combination of all three of these doshas, in varying amounts. What’s more, these doshas may change depending on where you are in your life. Ayurveda heals the doshas within us so that we can rebalance our health.

 

To find out your dosha, take the quiz on Sahara’s website.

 

How to Rebalance Your Dosha:

  • Vata:

Warm, grounding foods - think roots! Stay away from excessively cold foods.

 

  • Pita:

Cooling, alkalizing foods - more leafy greens, bitter veg, coconut. Avoid spicy foods.

 

  • Kapha:

Stimulating foods - warming spices to rev up metabolism.

 

In her latest book, Eat Feel Fresh, Sahara makes it easy to incorporate this ancient healing practice into your life with over 100 ayurvedic plant-based recipes. Her other book, An Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda contains all the self-care and lifestyle strategies to take your health to the next level. Check out Sahara’s podcast, Highest Self.

 

Ayurvedic self-care 101:

  • Tongue scraping - helps your digestion, keeps your mouth fresh
  • Oil pulling followed by warm water and salt - swill oil (coconut, sesame) for 3 to 20 minutes.
  • Dry brush - brush your skin upwards towards your heart - this removes dead skin cells.
  • Oil your body - give yourself a massage, hone in on the dry bits, show your body some love.

You’re only 10% human. Yes, really.

 

Just over a decade ago, doctors believed there were around 200 species of bacteria living on and in the human body. We now know there are over 30,000 species. We have a community of 100 trillion microorganisms in our gut. That is 10 times the number of human cells in the body. This basically means we’re 10% human, 90% bacteria!

 

The microbiome was an unknown entity, but now science has shown it to be a game changer. It’s an integral part of our health, and if we can support it, we can thrive.

 

We are in a synergistic relationship with the microorganisms in our body - we need them to survive, and they need us. They’ve been a part of us since the beginning of human evolution. But we’re bailing on them right now. In the last century, we’ve stopped taking care of them. Our diets (the chemicals we use to process our food), environment (the chemicals we use to clean our homes), lifestyles (lack of sleep, lack of movement, stress), medications (antibiotics) - destroy the delicate microbiome we rely on for health.

 

Doctor Will Bulsiewicz, also known as Dr. B, is an internal medicine doctor and expert gastroenterologist. While his conventional medicine training did not include any nutrition study, science was emerging about the power of diet to treat gastrointestinal disease. So he began studying it in his own time and discovered the untapped potential of a healthy gut. Having witnessed amazing results with his patients, he decided to spread the word beyond his clinic. The Gut Health MD was born.

 

Why your gut is your first step to thriving health:

  • All health starts here.
  • It controls your metabolism and how you process your food. It dictates whether you gain weight, or lose weight, and how easy it is to maintain your weight.
  • It’s in constant communication with your immune system.
  • It regulates your mood and impulses - 95% of serotonin (your happy hormone) is produced in the gut.

 

What can you do to heal your gut?

  • The most important thing is to eat a wide variety of plants - the more different plants you eat, the healthier your microbiome.
  • Unless you have an allergy, don’t blanket-eliminate foods from your diet - taking out foods reduces your diet’s variety and therefore your gut’s microbiome.
  • Get proper sleep, exercise every day, drink plenty of water.
  • Avoid dairy, meat and processed foods - these damage your microbiome.
  • Fasting gives your gut a break and strengthens your microbiome.
  • Check out the American Gut Project. Go to their website, they will send you a kit - give them a stool sample and fill out a survey about your lifestyle, and for just $99 they will tell you what your microbiome looks like.

Could mold be affecting your health? Mold is a tricky thing. It’s affected people since the dawn of time - but conventional medicine rarely addresses it. But it is a serious issue. Mold produces mycotoxins that can drive up estrogen levels, overburden the body with toxicity and elevate inflammation - so if you’re sensitive to mold (25% of people have the gene that make them sensitive) other symptoms will appear, like frequent illness, more allergies, exhaustion and hormonal issues.

 

Jenn Malecha’s healing journey had bumps along the way. She’d had a pretty healthy up-bringing - garden, vegetables, an active lifestyle. But when she got to college, the long hours and stress caused by studying and working crazy hours caused her health to decline. Then, at just 25, and having never been a sun-worshipper, Jenn was diagnosed with skin cancer. She knew it had to be caused by her environment and lifestyle. Functional tests revealed that she had high oxidative stress, a clogged-up liver, and adrenal dysfunction. So she tackled all those things, and felt like herself again…

 

Until five years later. She began gaining weight, her periods were all over the place, she had candida overgrowth and inflamed breasts. She went to experts, who were unable to tell her what was going on. Until one day she opened the cupboard near her work desk and there was black mold everywhere. Toxic mold had devastated her health. Having understood what was causing these issues, she began rebalancing her health. She became the boss of her health instead of relying on doctors. She now empowers others to have that same connection with their body.

 

Here are some of the strategies she used to free her home and her body from mold:

 

Screen for Mold at Home:

  • Visual contrast screening - You can take the test for just $15
  • Even if you pass this test, take an at home microscopy mold test by Citrisafe. This is a small Petri dish that collects mold spores. Once sent to the lab, researchers will analyze the type of mold present in your home.
  • The other test is called an ERMI test and is available from Mycometrics . This is a cloth with which you dust surfaces around your house. The cloth is then analyzed for mold - this test can be good to do because, unlike the microscopy test, it doesn’t depend on the mold spores being alive.

 

Screen for Mold Toxicity:

  • Are you electrically charged all the time?
  • Are you urinating more frequently?
  • Nasal swab - order through a naturopathic doctor or functional practitioner.

 

Getting Rid of Mold:

  • Hire professionals to remove the mold.
  • Clean air ducts.
  • Buy anti-mold solution Bio-Balance anti-mold solution. This is a natural toxin-free solution to remove mold from your home.
  • Get rid of mold on your carpet and your pets - products available at www.citrisafe.com.
  • After 30 days, retest your home for mold.
  • Get some functional tests done - if you’re sensitive to mold, it will trigger a chronic inflammatory response. This will come up on a functional test.

 

Detox Your Body and Feed Yourself Right:

  • Biotoxins can make the body hyperreactive to wheat. So avoiding gluten is essential.
  • Eat more natural detoxifying foods like beets, dandelion tea, grapefruit, lemon.
  • Eat an anti-inflammatory diet - remove grains, dairy, soy, sugar, and processed foods from your diet.
  • Run a food sensitivity test to find out which foods to stay away from.
  • Look at your personal care products - do they contain allergens like oats or almonds?
  • Keep a food journal - this will help you identify what triggers your symptoms.
  • Listen to your body - tune in and see what the body is telling you rather than just trying to follow protocols.
  • Think yourself healthy - mindset and health are completely linked.
  • Meditate, feed your mind positive thoughts, give yourself enough sleep (leave your cell phone out of the bedroom).
  • Make time to switch off and relax.

 

Jenn now helps busy professional to take back control of their health by offering lab tests and resources to find the missing piece of their health puzzle. With over a decade of personal training experience, Jenn creates personalized health-rebuilding programs for her clients that are realistic and achievable.

New year, new you! We always feel like a makeover is needed in January. So what better way to begin 2019 than with style coach Kimberly Seltzer?

 

You might not realize it, but your outfits are more than just clothes. They say a lot about you. They can keep you feeling down, block love, and give away your power. Yes, really. Wearing muted colors, going for the bigger size, wrapping up in layers all send a strong message, both to the outside world and to yourself: that you are not confident and are not comfortable in your own skin. From that space, implementing positive change is an uphill struggle.

 

Often, we’re told that if we work on what’s on the inside - our mindset - we can transform what’s on the outside. But this can work the other way too: a great outfit can make you feel empowered, and over time this boosts your confidence and improves your mindset, so you can attract what you want - whether it’s in love or in business. If you work on both your mindset and your wardrobe, transformation gets much faster. Kim knows about this first-hand.

 

Twenty years ago, she was a traditional therapist - in other words, she was totally focused on the inner work side of things. But life happened, she got a divorce. Life as she knew it was over. Her mood was so low she couldn’t even get out of bed, let alone be a helpful therapist. Despite her knowledge of talking therapy, she couldn’t get out of her own way or change how she felt. One day, she looked in the mirror. And she was horrified. Frumpy, wearing oversized clothes, a nursing bra and Birkenstocks. She looked like her mindset: sad, and hiding in a cocoon of black. So she went shopping. Luckily, a personal shopper saw her picking out her usual uniform and intervened with a sexy little red dress. This chance encounter changed Kim’s life forever. She suddenly felt like herself again. Her confidence started growing. And the rest is history. Now, Kim is determined to help others reconnect with themselves and find their perfect partner.

Imagine being just 26 years old and being told you have stage 3 colon cancer. Just before Christmas. That’s what happened to Chris Wark. What began as intermittent abdominal pain was actually a tumor the size of a golf ball. He was rushed into surgery, but woke up to the news that the cancer had spread to his lymph nodes. His options? He only had one: chemotherapy for 9 to 12 months.

 

But poisoning himself back to health didn’t make sense to Chris. He wanted to build his body back up, not tear it down. He began researching alternatives. The books he read opened his eyes to the healing power of nutrition and how our diet impacts our health. Suddenly he realized that he’d created his cancer, so he could fix it. He immediately bought a juicer and went from a standard American diet to 100% vegan and 100% raw.

 

It wasn’t easy to make that decision. His oncologist told him he was insane not to have chemo. He warned Chris that fruits and vegetables would “fight” the treatment, and that chemo was his only hope - without it, there was a 50% chance he would be dead within 5 years. Chris was crushed, and frightened.

 

Unfortunately, this is something that happens to almost all cancer patients. They are manipulated into believing that chemotherapy and cancer drugs are the only solutions. They’re told that diet makes no difference. When Chris woke up from the surgery to remove his tumor, his first hospital meal was a sloppy joe - despite the fact red meat is classed as a “probable carcinogen” by the World Health Organization.

 

Patients are told their cancer is either bad luck or bad genes. This turns patients into victims of circumstance, whose only hope is to show up for “standard” treatment. But we know that cancer is multifactorial. Only 5% of cancers are genetic - 95% are caused by diet, lifestyle and environment. What this means is that cancer is not something that just happens, and it isn’t something we are powerless against. We have cancer cells in our bodies all the time, but our immune system is designed to fight and kill these cells. The difference between someone with cancer and someone without is their internal environment. We can make our bodies somewhere cancer can thrive (through a poor diet, high stress, environmental toxins), or somewhere cancer cannot survive. But how?

Adam Schaeuble is a PHD. Not the kind of PHD you’re thinking. It stands for Previous Heavy Dude. At his rock bottom, Adam weighed 327 pounds, and was over $40,000 in debt. But he had good friends who kept giving him the DVD of The Secret to watch. When he eventually did, Adam realized he needed to take his future into his own hands. Five years on, he’s achieved everything he set out to - lost 100 pounds, started a family, and started a successful business.

 

How? He stopped focusing on what the world was bringing to his door and instead started looking at what he wanted to achieve, and how he was going to attract what he wanted into his life. Positive mental attitude, a strong lifestyle rehabilitation statement, and consistency are key. Through this journey, Adam found his calling: to help as many people as possible dial up their health and get the results they deserve. Now a transformational coach, fitness expert and gym owner, he’s helped his home town lose over 35,000 pounds, and is on a mission to help people lose 1 million pounds of excess body weight.

 

His new podcast, the Million Pound Mission, goes into next-level thinking to take you deeper into nutrition and fitness, and motivate you to take action and get results. It’s packed with inspiration and knowledge bombs - if you’re trying to lose weight, this is the show for you! You can donate your weight loss to the Million Pound Mission here

 

Adam’s Tips for Manifestation:

  • Write your goals down as though you’ve already achieved them
  • Declare your goals out loud every day, morning and evening
  • Break down your goals into manageable chunks and take action
  • Don’t go to bed before doing at least ONE thing towards your goals
  • Don’t be afraid to focus on several goals at once
  • Believe it, plug into that vision, how is it going to feel to reach your goals?
  • Find your why - ask yourself why you want to reach your goal - that’s what will get you fired up and motivated.

 

Black Hole of Fitness Doom

Do you fall into the black hole of fitness doom? When we embark on a new program, whether it’s a fitness program or a new diet, we all go through the same cycle. We start out feeling pumped, then we begin seeing results and feel fired up. And then we have a “life happens” moment, we’re not ready, so we crash and burn. We give up, believe that we’ve failed or that the program doesn’t work, and we start another one. And on we go, losing weight, gaining it back, and each time feeling less motivated and more burned out. To break out of that cycle, it’s vital to figure out your transformational danger zones and find strategies to deal with them. Once you do that, you will get dramatically better results from your fitness and nutrition program.

 

Adam’s Amazing Results Formula:

If you apply these four principles to any health goals, you’re going to succeed.

  1. Get committed to ONE nutrition plan. Be consistent for 28 days.
  2. Get committed to a 28-day fitness plan - plan your workouts in advance and stick to them.
  3. Strategic thinking - understand your danger zones and the things that usually derail you, and devise a plan to avoid falling into the Black Hole of Fitness Doom.
  4. Do the first three consistently over time. Consistency is key.

 

Adam’s tips for surviving the holiday season without gaining loads of weight:

  • This isn’t the time to focus on losing weight - it’s more about maintaining, while being accountable to a plan.
  • Start filling in your transformational notebook (you can download it free on Adam’s website) and create a 28-day cycle.
  • Allow some cheat meals, and track them so you can adapt your next 28 days - don’t beat yourself up!
  • Be present and conscious. You can build momentum every new cycle.
  • Just don’t check out - be easy on yourself but have a game plan to keep your goals in mind.
  • Check out Adam’s Reset Bootcamp!

Can you reverse diabetes? Conventional science says no. Our favorite plant-based doctor says YES. And this is backed up by science.

 

Dr. Neal Barnard grew up on a ranch in North Dakota, cattle county. He wanted to be a psychiatrist. But while working as an autopsy assistant, he made the connection between meat and a dead animal. The seed was planted. As time went on, he began thinking about veganism from the standpoint of both health and animal welfare. Dr. Barnard believes compassion should be the foundation of medicine - this means medical research has to be ethical. So if a disease is related to food, like diabetes, we need to do more than simply throw pharmaceuticals at it and hope for the best. That’s why he set up the Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine, a group that promotes preventative medicine through a plant-based diet.

 

What is diabetes?

Diabetes happens when your body’s cells are no longer able to absorb sugar and use it for energy. This happens if you eat too many fatty foods. Fat gets into the cells and stops them working property. The solution? Well, it isn’t the standard diabetes diet - low-calorie, low-carb. The best diet for reversing diabetes is a vegan diet, with minimum oils and an abundance of low-glycemic foods.

 

Why not just avoid carbs?

Many people think that to control your blood sugar you simply need to avoid carbs. But the problem with that theory is that around half of what we eat contains carbs - including a lot of good stuff, like sweet potatoes, beans, wholegrains. Sure, your blood sugar levels will drop and you will lose weight on a low-carb diet… because you’re semi-starving. It is not sustainable long-term. Then add extra eggs and meat, and the result is more cholesterol and a higher risk of early death. Keto may be on trend, but it won’t do your health much good.

 

Dr. Barnard isn’t just a plant-based nutrition expert. He’s also a TV host and best-selling author, with over 70 scientific papers and 18 books published. His latest one, The Vegan Starter-Kit is a super-short book packed with tips for transitioning to a vegan diet and reversing diabetes. It makes the perfect gift for anyone looking to go plant-based - give your loved ones the gift of health! It’s out on December 24th, and you can pre-order it on Amazon now.

 

 

Dr. Barnard’s best plant-based tips for the holidays:

  • Choose a restaurant with great plant-based options, like Italian, Thai and Japanese. 
  • Make a healthy dish and bring it to the party (or just make a vegan cheeseboard if you don’t fancy cooking)
  • Don’t arrive at the party hungry - have a little something to eat beforehand

When Allison hired weight-loss expert David Zappasodi, he told her to stop exercising and go buy a bunch of junk food. This is a weight-loss strategy like no other. But, it WORKS.

 

Did you know that out of all the people who try losing weight every year, only 3% succeed? From the moment David stepped into the health and wellness industry, over 20 years ago, he knew he had to find a new method that challenges common weight-loss approaches. So he developed a revolutionary strategy to reprogram your brain to give up junk food and stop over-eating for good. His ultimate goal? To eradicate world-wide obesity. We love his mission!!

 

But how can you do this? By creating brain-flips around your cravings.

 

How Do Brain Flips Work?

It’s vital to understand that we have two aspects to our brain. First, there’s the thinking brain - we use it to fix problems and make our lives better. The thinking brain knows that certain foods are an issue and it wants to get rid of the craving. This is the part of the brain most of us will try to use to lose weight, and it never works. The sensory brain, on the other hand, is different - it’s the opposite of your thinking brain in so far as it has no capacity to think. It just functions through your senses - hearing, sight, smell, touch, taste - but it doesn’t have a concept of what it’s seeing, tasting, touching, smelling etc. It doesn’t identify - that’s the thinking brain’s job. Your sensory brain’s role is to keep you safe - it does that by creating familiar associations.

 

For example, let’s say as a child you fell and scraped your knee. Your mum bandaged it up, and gave you an ice-cream. Your thinking brain is aware the bandaging is what’s helping, but your sensory brain just links the taste of ice-cream to the physical sensation of feeling better - it creates a program that says ice-cream equals feeling good. The result? A craving for ice-cream that lasts into adulthood. The story changes, the food changes, but it’s pretty much the same for everyone and all cravings. Your thinking brain might know that this is happening, but that won’t solve the problem. Unless you can reprogram your brain, you will keep having those cravings. You need a brain-flip. To create this brain-flip, you need a pain tool.

 

Pain Tool:

You’ve concluded that ice-cream equals safe. So you need to create a pain tool that reprograms your sensory brain to believe that ice-cream equals not safe. How? David gets his clients to make an audio that goes deep into what their life will look like if they don’t solve this problem, which they listen to whilst eating the ice-cream or whatever food they crave. This pain tool plants a seed in the sensory brain that says ice-cream is not enjoyable after all. It’s a small seed, but it begins to decrease the cravings. Within a few days, this new programming takes over. Your brain no longer associates the ice-cream with comfort, it associates it with pain. The result? You don’t crave that food any more. You are free.

 

And that’s just Phase 1. In Phase 2, David tackles over-eating. Where cravings tend to be an association of taste with comfort, overeating is an association between the feeling of fullness and feeling safe. This might happen because as a child you were told to finish what was on your plate, so your sensory brain created a link between overeating and feeling safe. In Phase 3, you go even deeper, by brain-flipping your beliefs about working out - making exercise so exciting you’ll be begging to get to the gym. Tune in to discover David’s tools for brain-flipping around overeating and exercise.

 

Alli has just completed Phase 1, and has gone from eating dessert every single day to not even wanting anything sweet. She feels like a completely new person - and you can too!

 

If you’ve tried program after program and are seriously struggling with weight-loss, you can schedule a free coaching call with David at www.empoweredhealthnow.com/talk.

Health is the cornerstone of prosperity. If our body isn’t functioning properly, we can’t do anything, we can’t lead joyful lives. We normalize aches and pains, bloating, exhaustion, headaches, ill-health - all the things caused by our lifestyle. We come to believe that to be human means to get progressively sicker every year. That simply isn’t true. There’s no reason we can’t be vibrant and active well into our 90’s. Today’s guest is a perfect example.

 

Eric L. Adams is a former Democratic State Senator and police officer, and current Borough President of Brooklyn and social justice warrior. He knows first-hand how powerful a simple lifestyle change can be. Two years ago, he was diagnosed with advanced Type 2 Diabetes. He had stomach ulcers, high blood pressure, permanent nerve damage to his hands and feet, and had lost sight in his right eye. Specialists told him that because diabetes ran in his family, he was inevitably heading towards kidney failure, blindness and possible foot amputation.

 

So he made a change. After reading Dr Greger’s How Not To Die (check out Episode 214), and watching Forks over Knives, he cleaned out his kitchen cupboards and swapped his Standard American Diet for a whole foods plant-based diet. Just 3 weeks later, his vision cleared up, his stomach ulcers disappeared, and the nerve damage was reversed. A complete turn-around.

 

Now, Eric is determined to empower people to heal themselves. Because after all, there’s no such thing as prosperity without a healthy community. He’s teamed up with schools to teach children to grow food, and runs initiatives like Meatless Mondays and 10-day challenges for people suffering with disease, as well as hosting events to demystify veganism.

 

But perhaps the most exciting initiative is what’s happening at Bellevue hospital. The first ever plant-based unit will be set up, run by functional medicine doctors, dietitians and nutritionists to show patients how to heal themselves, reverse disease and come off their prescription meds with a whole-food plant-based diet. Could this model be rolled out on a global scale? This could change the conversation around medicine for good. The future’s looking bright! Check out Eric’s Instagram to learn more!

We can’t achieve our goals without being productive. But sometimes it feels like there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Kris McPeak is a certified life coach, author, blogger, podcast host, founder of the Silver Peak Performance swim team… and she also holds a full-time job. We couldn’t think of anyone better to give us holiday productivity hacks!

 

How does she do it all? Prioritization, routine and self-care. It all goes hand in hand. Kris spends 8 hours at the office, makes sure she gets 8 hours sleep, and that leaves 8 hours to elevate. And Kris really has made the most of those 8 hours. She’s written the books Shake it Off: Ten 10 Minute Resets For Your Day (Making Work Work For You), and Elevate Your 8: 21 Days to Prosperous Time Management, AND launched her new podcast Elevate Your 8. All this in just a few months, after attending our Rise & Bloom Mastermind in April.

 

Whatever your goals, or no matter how long you’ve been an entrepreneur, you can always learn new ways to be more productive.

 

Kris’s Productivity Hacks:

  • Get a sense of how long it takes you to do the little things - showering, commuting, cooking - then figure out how much time you have left for the most important tasks.
  • Value your time - could you create more time for yourself by delegating or hiring someone?
  • Treat your time like your money - get the urgent things done first.
  • Set your timer for social media time so you don’t get sucked into the rabbit hole.
  • Prioritize - figure out what needs to be done and when. Do you have to do it today or can it wait till the weekend?
  • Go with the flow - recognize your schedule can get messed up, and learn to be flexible.
  • Don’t judge yourself on what you didn’t get done.
  • Develop a morning routine.

 

But what about this time of year? The holidays are the perfect time to connect with loved ones and new people… but it’s also easy to get overwhelmed by it all.

 

Here are Kris and Leslie’s tips for getting through the holidays while staying healthy and productive:

  • Don’t feel like you have to go to every party you’re invited to - it’s ok to turn down invitations to honor your self-care.
  • Plan ahead - fuel with good food and choose the healthiest dishes at parties.
  • Discover JOMO - the Joy Of Missing Out
  • Always bring food!
  • If you’re hosting, don’t worry about a signature cocktail, you can also offer non-alcoholic drinks.
  • Bring a plant-based wine - our favorite is Le Grand Courtage sparkling wine
  • Try Brown Brother’s dessert wine - straight from Oz, but available in the US.

 

 

A Delicious Holiday Detox?

And of course, we all want to look and feel fabulous during the holidays. This is a time when it’s even more important to detox, because we’re eating a little more and drinking a few extra glasses of wine. No one wants to feel sluggish and bloated at this time. What if you could add something to your regular routine that helps your body to detox naturally? Well, you can, with Teami blends.

 

Detoxing helps get rid of these extra holiday toxins, improve your energy levels, clear up your skin, boost your metabolism and clear out the digestive tract. We love detoxing, but this usually means fasting, which is not easy to do at this time of year!

 

That’s why we’re excited for you to try Teami Blends, a fun way to detox that fits into your normal day-to-day. In other words, you can eat and cleanse at the same time. What’s more, you can turn them into a delicious Mocha Choca latte - you’ll have to tune into the podcast for the recipe! Right now, you can get 20% off Teami Blends with discount code FoodHeals.

Is it possible to eat meat AND be cruelty free? Can we continue eating burgers and still tackle the global climate crisis? A few years ago, the answer to that would have been no, absolutely not. But today, clean meat is forging the way towards exactly that: meat that requires no killing, and that has no environmental impact. One of the people involved in this shift is Bruce Friedrich.

 

Bruce went plant-based way before it was popular, back in 1987, after reading Diet for a Small Planet and realizing that meat production was taking us towards global starvation. When he found out what Pat Browne of Impossible Foods was doing, he realized clean meat is the future, and co-founded the Good Food Institute (GFI) - a non-profit organization that works with scientists and entrepreneurs to find sustainable, kind alternatives to industrially produced animal products.

 

Clean meat is not another veggie burger. It IS meat - but grown from cells in a lab, rather than by rearing livestock. The result is meat that is better for your health, and for the planet:

 

Better for Your Health and Global Health

Did you know about 70% of the antibiotics produced in the US go to farm animals? The risk is two-fold. Firstly, those meds end up in the meat and on your plate, and we are not designed to eat medication aimed at animals. The other risk has to do with how bacteria and viruses evolve. The indiscriminate use of antibiotics has resulted in the development of superbugs so strong they pose a greater threat to life than global climate change. In fact, by 2050, over 10 million people a year might die from antibiotic-resistant bugs. We absolutely need to end our reliance on these medications! With clean meat, there are no livestock animals, so no need for antibiotics - and no antibiotic residues in your burger!

 

Another reason clean meat is better for your health is that, since it’s grown in a lab, it doesn’t get contaminated by bacteria because it doesn’t come into contact with animal intestines or poop. That means no salmonella and no E.coli. Did you know that contaminated meat makes tens of millions of Americans sick every year? This doesn’t happen with clean meat.

 

Better For The Planet

Factory farming is not sustainable - we’ve known it for decades! It takes 9 calories of food (from grain or grass or soy) to “grow” 1 calorie of meat. So we’re throwing away 8 calories of crop to get just 1 consumable calorie. Basically, it’s 800% food waste. Think about what it takes to grow the crops to feed livestock: water, pesticides, herbicides, gas and energy to ship the crops to feed mills and to factory farms, to ship the animals to and from slaughter houses. It’s no wonder the UN’s report Livestock’s Long Shadow found that animal agriculture is one of the top 3 contributors to climate change.

 

End World Hunger

A transition to clean meat could end world poverty and hunger too. Plant-based meat could feed the world. Tens of millions of people die every year from starvation-related causes. Instead of growing crops to feed animals, these crops could be grown to feed the world’s poorest.

 

So clean meat means no waste, no cruelty, no environmental destruction. And it doesn’t require anyone to change their habits. It looks like meat, tastes like meat - it IS meat, but grown differently. That’s why it’s a game changer. And why Bruce and others predict that we’ll see a 100% plant-based meat world by 2050 (or sooner!).

 

Clean Protein - The Book

Bruce has just co-authored a new book with Kathy Freston. Clean Protein - The Revolution that Will Reshape Your Body, Boost Your Energy, And Save Our Planet is a presentation on which clean proteins are best for our health, as well as tips on working out how much protein you need, transitioning to veganism, plant-based shopping, and a ton of tasty recipes. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s the perfect read for anyone worried about how to stay healthy and vegan during the holidays.

Ah, Italy! The pizzas, the pastas, the wine, the gelato…. But what if you’re vegan? Well, let’s bust a myth right now: it’s a total misconception that travelling to Italy if you’re vegan, or gluten-free for that matter, is difficult. We’re used to the American versions of Italian foods, where it’s all about cream and cheese. Truth is, traditional Italian specialties, particularly in the South of Italy, are just about fresh produce done in a healthy way. Real Italian food is a whole other world - and it’s super vegan-friendly.

How do we know this? Because we’ve travelled throughout Italy and sampled the best vegan options! Like our Italian Getaway last year, where we went to the best restaurants Ravello has to offer. Check out Episode 211 to hear what previous guests thought of the experience.

But let’s go back to veganizing for a moment. Today is about how can you veganize Italian dishes at home, reduce the calories and make them healthier. Vince, our talented producer for the day (and mixing & mastering engineer) is Italian, but intolerant to dairy. Here are some of Leslie’s go-to Italian classics made plant-based.

Vegan Alfredo sauce:

  • Boil cauliflower in vegetable broth until it’s tender.
  • Place cauliflower, vegetable broth, roasted garlic, nutritional yeast, cashew nuts and caramelized onion in a blender.
  • Blend until smooth and pour over pasta. Best. Sauce. EVER.

Chicken Milano:

  • Substitute the cream with a vegan cashew cream: Boil and rinse cashew nuts, drain them, and blend with a little water, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper.
  • Substitute the chicken with seitan or breaded & fried zucchini steaks.

Eggplant parmigiana:

  • Thinly slice eggplant lengthwise, sprinkle on salt and leave for 10 mins.
  • Pat dry, then pop them into flour and oil to fry.
  • Make a parmigiana by blending cashew nuts, caramelized onion, roasted garlic, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper.
  • Layer the eggplant in an oven dish with tomato sauce, whole basil leaves, and the parmigiana sauce.
  • Bake until it bubbles. This dish will change your life.

Easy vegan gelato:

  • Place a couple of frozen bananas with your flavor of choice (cacao, berries, maca, etc.) in a blender.
  • Blend until it’s super smooth and super thick.
  • Place back in the freezer for an hour or two - this firms it up so you can scoop it.

Alli’s super-fast chocolate mousse:

  • Place avocado, cacao powder, plant mylk, and vegan sugar in your blender.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Leave in the fridge for chocolate mousse or place in the freezer for chocolate ice-cream. The perfect remedy for a sweet tooth.

How to make lemon olive oil:

  • Peel an organic lemon or orange (just the top layer, without the rind)
  • Put the peel in the olive oil
  • Leave it for a few days and voila! Zesty olive oil that’s delicious drizzled on salads and soups.

These are just some of the dishes you could learn at our next Italian Getaway. That’s right, we’re going back to the Amalfi Coast! And we’d love to take you with us! This is not a large tour-bus type holiday - it’s an intimate retreat for like-minded women. We will fully immerse ourselves in Italian culture. We’ll sample the most exquisite food and wine, go shopping, hiking, and sailing. Leslie will teach you how to make healthy vegan meals so you can bring a taste of Italy back home with you. But that’s not all you’ll take back - this is a life changing retreat, where you will make connections that will last a lifetime.

It’s Halloween, so what better time to talk about ghosts and why they visit us? Some are our guardian angels. Some are stuck here. Some are malevolent, locked in this dimension by negative patterns. But ghosts aren’t the only thing that affect our present.

 

Many of our core beliefs, emotional traumas and even illness are passed down from our ancestors in our DNA.

 

Three years ago Roxy had a chance meeting with a clairvoyant who told her there’s a curse on the women’s side of her family. A curse on love. This made Roxy think about her own relationships. Are curses at play?

 

Do curses really exist?

 

According to Lisa, they do. There are different types of beings on the other side of the veil. Some have never had a body or been to earth, and follow the dark side. Some are spirits who have lived on earth before, but who have stayed earthbound - sometimes because of drug addiction, anger, revenge, guilt. Some are assigned as our guardian angels. Others are here because they are trying to teach us something. Some simply don’t know how to get back.

 

Whatever the reason, they can be cleared. Either through an energy clearing, or by accepting the gift they are trying to communicate. You can free yourself from inherited trauma, and help ghosts return to the other side. Lisa Thomas is a world-renown transformational energy healer who specializes in healing ancestral DNA and clearing old patterns. Check out Episode 215 for her story and tips to heal your inherited DNA.

 

If you want to book a DNA clearing, go to www.foodhealsnation.com/lisa to get on the list. Check out Lisa’s website and get your free meditation to Release Inherited Money Blocks, a great tool to unblock your limiting belief about money, clear your energy and prepare your body for healing.

Life is more than just about hustle. It’s about community. Finding your tribe. The people with keys that open up parts of yourself you never knew were there. Without community, life is empty.

 

Lori Harder grew up without community - in a small town, in an overweight family who believed they were victims of their genes, home schooled, with no friends outside her religion. She was lonely, repressed and depressed. It was fitness that sent her on the path to health and spiritual awakening. But it was a long journey, full of obstacles.

 

Despite changing her body, winning competitions, and being successful, Lori still felt miserable. This is something so many of us struggle with. We think we’ll be happy when we get that job, lose 10 pounds, get married, buy a house - but if we don’t confront and heal the inner stories that run in our mental background, happiness will always be elusive and short-lived.

 

Lori had to stop and figure out what was blocking her from feeling joy, and what made her feel really good. Suddenly she knew: she wanted something she had never had: community. She wanted to give women somewhere to go, a place to feel accepted and connected. And that’s exactly what she’s doing.

 

Host of the Earn Your Happy podcast, founder of the Bliss Project, and author of A Tribe Called Bliss, Lori now helps women to find their tribe, connect with their communities, and manifest their dream life.

 

Is it possible to manifest your dreams? Yes! By feeling that you’ve already got it, that your life is already where you want it to be. Create a space every day where you can feel what it would be like. Tap into that feeling as often as you can. The physical manifestation will follow naturally. If you want to delve deeper into this, then check out Earn Your Happy Episode 262.

 

Her book A Tribe Called Bliss made us laugh, cry, and get chills. It gives you a blueprint to connect with your tribe, and tells the story of how she overcame one of the most traumatic experiences a woman can go through - you’ll have to read the book to find out what happened!

 

If you want to connect with yourself and your tribe, then don’t miss Lori’s event The Bliss Project on March 1st to 3rd. It will be the best weekend of your life. Come and have fun, experience deep transformation, release old stories, connect with like-minded women, move your body, and celebrate every realm of yourself.

She’s one of the most inspiring businesswomen I know. Tracey Edmonds is an award-winning Hollywood producer, TV presenter and CEO of Edmonds Entertainment Group. And now she’s helping people live their dream life through her new website Alright Now.

 

Sometimes in life, situations happen that make you completely rethink your lifestyle. For Tracey, this moment came when her dad had a quadruple bypass. As he was fighting for his life, she made a vow to get healthy. At the time, she was eating a lot of junk food and was taking prescription meds for digestion issues. These issues disappeared when she changed her diet. From the age of 25, Tracey has been on a journey of discovery about nutrition, fitness and spirituality.

 

Two years ago, Tracey lost her mum to an aggressive form of cancer called mesothelioma - and at the same time learned a lot about cancer, how it’s treated, and how it could be treated. As an outpatient, her mom was having Vitamin C IVs and taking supplements. Her tumors had shrunk by 40%. The second she had to go into hospital full-time, all that had to stop - no Vitamin C transfusions, no supplements, just western-medicine-approved chemotherapy and radiation. Her tumors grew back. She lost the battle against cancer. Just one year later, Tracey’s dad died from a heart attack.

 

Nutrition and alternative healing are hardly talked about in traditional western medicine. Research shows that cancer cells feed on sugar, and yet you’ll find candy on display in chemotherapy centers. Evidence proves Vitamin C helps shrink tumors, and yet this is not part of cancer treatment. Most doctors get no more than a few hours nutrition training, how can they offer real advice? Some just see sickness as a business, a way to make money. This is why it’s so important that we do our own research.

 

The loss of both her parents to preventable diseases spurred Tracey on to launch a health & wellness website and make the world a better place. Alright Now was born.

 

Alright Now is an amazing resource for anyone wanting to learn about healing and how to live their best life. Health, fitness, parenting, career, relationships - it offers you tools to really thrive. Subscribe to the website and you’ll get amazing discounts on gym memberships, insurance and even restaurants!

 

Tracey’s big message: don’t procrastinate. Don’t wait. Do some soul searching: what life do you want for yourself, what steps you do you need to make it happen? Declare it, write it, decide it - the only limits are those you build up in your mind. Declare the life that you want and make it happen.

Fiona Oakes is one of the most humble, incredible, inspiring people we’ve ever met. At just 3 years old, she went vegetarian. When she was 6 she opted out of all animal products, at a time when being vegan was considered an eating disorder. Her love for animals motivated her to open up an animal sanctuary. But that wasn’t enough, she wanted to do more. In 2004, tired of vegan bashing, Fiona launched a running club to show you can be strong on a vegan diet, and to bring the word “vegan” to the masses.

 

Since then, she’s broken 3 world records and run countless marathons, including the Marathon des Sables - a 156-mile race through the Sahara Desert. This is all the more extraordinary when you find out that she doesn’t have a trainer, doesn’t really enjoy running, AND has no knee-cap! She’s driven by her love of animals, and her desire to create a more sustainable world.

 

But despite her achievements, mainstream media has kept its distance. In fact, Fiona was even told not to mention her vegan diet on live TV after she broke a world record!

 

Keegan Kuhn, co-creator of Cowspiracy and What the Health, wants to change that. We all need to use our own voice to elevate the vegan message, and elevate others who are promoting a positive agenda for the world, and the animals. Keegan was raised vegetarian with only two rules: don’t hurt anyone, and question authority. He turned vegan at just 12 - you can find out more about his story on Episode 93.

 

Fiona’s achievements and her humbleness are what made Keegan want to create the documentary Running for Good. We’re in a society who praises people who do things for their own ego, and here is this person who does it just for the animals. For over twenty years, she’s run over 20 miles a day while looking after 450 animals. She does this all on a vegan diet, to make the world a better place. We think she’s amazing.

 

Running for Good is available to pre-order now. Check it out!

Did you know sugar is the new smoking? Or that the molecular structure of sugar is nearly identical to cocaine’s? That’s what makes it so addictive - and it’s literally everywhere! Over 80% of items in the supermarket contain added sugar - even foods you wouldn’t expect, like crackers, salad dressing, and soup!

 

In the 80’s, we decided fat was the enemy. We removed the fat from our foods but replaced it with sugar. The result? We got fatter! And sicker. That’s because sugar causes inflammation in the body, and inflammation is the root cause of many diseases, from cardiovascular disease to cancer.

 

So how can we avoid the white stuff but still satisfy our sweet tooth? Swerve Sweeteners offer a natural solution!

 

Andress is the CEO and founder of Swerve Sweetener, a New Orleans-based company focused on helping educate people about blood sugar stabilization. With their sweeteners, you can bake to your heart’s content WITHOUT compromising on health. For Andress, health starts with blood sugar balance, because when you control blood sugar, you have better energy, better weight management, and better mood. She wanted to share a tool we can use to give up the white stuff without giving up pleasure.

 

What about coconut sugar, or maple syrup? Yes, they’re certainly better than refined white sugar…. But they’re still sugar, and they still impact your blood sugar - which means they’re not suitable for diabetics. Plus, they still contain plenty of calories.

 

The answer? Sugar alcohols, but not just any sugar alcohol. Swerve uses a blend of the sugar alcohol erythritol and prebiotic oligosaccharides. The reason erythritol is amazing is that the body metabolizes it in a completely different way to other sugar alcohols like xylitol (which can cause some digestive issues). What’s more, it’s vegan, there’s nothing artificial, no GMO, and no MSG. AND it’s diabetes-friendly!

 

So basically, you can use Swerve in your baking and cooking, guilt-free.  Check out Swerve’s website for some absolutely gorgeous sweet recipes (there are over 300!). Watch out for their new products: brown sugar, and vegan keto grain-free gluten-free bake mixes for when you need a healthy treat in a hurry.

 

Available in your grocery store or online.

First of all, who made aging bad? We all get older, there’s no getting away from it. But we can do it with grace and ease. Between the ads, the movie stars, the instagrams, the magazines, the voices in our own head, the fact is we don’t feel good about ourselves. And as we get older, it gets worse. Instead of loving our wisdom and our journeys, instead of enjoying our life, we hate ourselves for every new wrinkle. So we run to the doctor and get fillers and injectables and lasers and Botox. But that isn’t the answer.

 

Lori Hart felt insecure about her body when she was young, and in her 20’s, she got talked into having liposuction. But the result was gastroparesis (paralysis of stomach muscles). She decided there and then she wanted to help women love themselves, and achieve gorgeous skin - naturally.

 

So what can we do for flawless, glowing skin?

 

Lori’s tips for youthful skin:

  • Use zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to block the sun
  • Do NOT sleep in your make up - it will age you 13 days each time you do!
  • Avoid harsh ingredients like sodium laureth sulfate at all cost!
  • It’s about health - if your inner health is good, your skin will be tight, hydrated, and youthful.
  • Avoid harsh exfoliation techniques like microdermabrasion - they literally buff your skin off.
  • Don’t use sugar scrubs - your skin absorbs the sugar in the same was as if you eat it.
  • Avoid face-peeling products like retinols, chemical peels and glycolic acid - these thin your skin and make it age faster.
  • Use vitamin C serums.
  • Take vitamin C internally.
  • Ground yourself, go barefoot in the grass!

 

Lori’s mineral make-up includes sunblock that blocks UV rays, which means you can be in the sun all day without having to worry. And the best bit? Lori can even customize it for your unique skin. No additives, no fillers, just natural ingredients, crushed rocks and gemstones. This means you get the energetic vibration of crystals like peridot and tourmaline, combined with ingredients that heal and support your skin.

 

Lori’s cleansing device not only cleanses your skin by pulling toxins out, it has 4 settings that help skincare products penetrate deep enough to make a difference. Her other skincare device is an ultrasound micro-dermabrasive blade that removes all the microscopic grime and gives you a natural facelift, leaving your skin looking and feeling beautifully smooth.

 

If you want more info about the best skincare routine for you, book a skype with Lori, email her at lori@lorihart.com, or give her a call on 310 610 3449.

 

 

Get Rid of Your Acne

And if you suffer from breakouts, then you’ll love the Banish skincare range. Remember Daisy, from Episode 220? She grew up with acne and scarring since 3rd grade. After trying product after product, she found out that some of the ingredients in anti-acne products actually made her skin worse. So she created a brand of skincare without harmful or irritating chemicals. Now, her skin is glowing, smooth, and completely gorgeous.

 

The Banish Kit contains everything you need to banish acne and scars, fade uneven texture and hyperpigmentation, and reduce wrinkles:

  • The Banisher, which works by creating micro wounds in the skin (don’t worry, this is totally painless) and causes the skin to renew itself.
  • Banish Oil, a vitamin C serum containing the most potent form of vitamin C: ascorbic acid.

 

Banish products are made fresh to order, using only natural ingredients. And if you’re not completely satisfied, there’s a 30-day money back guarantee. Head to Banish.com and get $10 off your first order with coupon code foodhealsnation.

Masa and Michael Osei - Founder of The Minimalist Vegan

Do you suffer from the More Virus? Most of us do, to some degree or other. The symptoms? Always wanting more - more stuff, more success, more money, more cars, more clothes, more friends. Anyone who’s seen Hoarders knows that you can literally get trapped by your stuff. Always wanting more leaves us less time to actually enjoy life and be content with what we have right now.

Pursuing LESS rather than more gives you the opportunity to discover what really matters to you, and create the space for that in your life. If you want to set up your new business, be an activist, start a blog, then minimalism can free you from unwanted and unnecessary clutter so you have more time to do what you love.

Michael and Masa stumbled on the principle of minimalist living through ZenHabits, a blog about Buddhism and minimalism, and instantly knew they had to make the shift towards living with less stuff - not just for themselves but because minimalist living is kinder to the planet.

Four years later, they extended this to their diet. Masa and Michael went vegan overnight after watching Earthlings. It wasn’t easy, but once they’d seen the cruelty they couldn’t go back to eating animals. Their free cookbook is packed with delicious recipes to help you get into vegan eating effortlessly.

Check out their blog The Minimalist Vegan for tips and tricks to transition to a minimalist and vegan lifestyle - so you have more time and space in your life to follow your dreams. You can also read Masa and Michael’s book The Minimalist Vegan: A Simple Manifesto On Why To Live With Less Stuff And More Compassion.

 

Debi Chew - Plant-Based Nurse and Founder of the Chew on Vegan YouTube Channel

She thought she was too old. She thought it would take too long. But Debi Chew followed her dreams. After 24 years working in the grocery business she went back to school to become a nurse - she’s been registered since 2009.

Who better to be a nurse than someone who’s been on their own healing journey? Debi went vegan after watching Forks over Knives. But a year later, she was diagnosed with auto-immune hepatitis. Her liver was totally shutting down, she was so bad that her gastroenterologist said if she didn’t take the steroids he would put her in hospital. So she took them. But she knew she didn’t want to be on medications for life, and researched alternatives. Though a combination of Chinese herbs and a plant-based diet, she got off the steroids within 6 weeks and took herself back to total health.

Debi set up Chew on Vegan after taking Jason Wrobel’s My Healthy Hustle class. Her YouTube channel spreads the plant-based message and helps people transition to a vegan diet with tons of easy, simple, vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free recipes. Check it out! Especially the outrageous brownies by Chef AJ (we love Chef AJ, all her recipes are salt, sugar and oil-free; she was a guest on Episode 78). You can email Debi at chewonvegan@gmail.com.
