This post will explain exactly how Briana, a mother of three and reader of this blog, lost 100 pounds. If you’re meeting me for the first time today, you’d never guess that a little over 1 year ago, I was 100 pounds heavier and the furthest thing from being proud in a bikini. I had a husband, two kids, a house in the suburbs with a white picket fence, and a great dane. Fat, depressed, and frustrated, I ended up surfing the internet one day for some new nutrition and training inspiration, when I stumbled across Tim’s blog and the post he wrote on How to Lose 20 lbs of Fat in 30 Days… Without Doing Any Exercise. Along the way, Tim wrote and released The 4-Hour Body, and my story was featured on national television and throughout numerous editorials, spreads, and fitness publications — the biggest of which was an appearance with Tim on the Dr. Needless to say, I exploded over nine months, and by the time I actually gave birth to my 8 lb. So many of us are miserable over the current condition of our bodies, we get motivated and inspired by reading stories such as mine, but that’s not enough.
Before I began, I committed to document the entire process via a weekly pictorial where I would stand raw, real, and exposed in front of a camera wearing nothing but the same tiny black bikini.
Beginning the day after I gave birth, I followed every slow-carb principle that is outlined — except for the cheat day. Just with the slow-carb diet ALONE and ZERO exercise (due to some postpartum recovery issues between week 1 and week 8), I lost 36 POUNDS. And 12 months after giving birth, I hit my goal and lost 100 pounds (23 pounds of which were pre-pregnancy), and completely transformed my body. Standing in front of the bright lights of a professional photographer week-after-week (often times without seeing much change), especially when you’re a personal trainer who is 100 pounds over weight, is humiliating, humbling, and painful.
I always wanted to guarantee that people could achieve rapid fat loss, and now I have the data to prove it. Last Fall, 3,500 people joined a four-week 4-Hour Body challenge and measured their progress on Lift (a goal tracking and support community that I invested in). Talk to other group members! When you set goals alongside other people, it keeps you accountable and leads to better results. Watch The Tim Ferriss Experiment, the new #1-rated TV show with "the world's best human guinea pig" (Newsweek), Tim Ferriss. Also, and not a criticism, but as a personal trainer do you feel it is perhaps not the best message, long term, to send to the public that they do not need to exercise in order to lose weight and be healthy? From all the diet information out there, from SCD to Paleo, (mostly) everyone agrees that processed foods are the culprit for weight gain and illness. Thermogenics, as well as other stuff, but I’m being lazy so will open my copy of 4HB and get back to you later.
They say fruit is processed in your body like a carb, so if weight loss is your goal, it’s best to cut it out or stick to one piece a day. It’s basically a big ball of sugar that is produced in order to entice animals to eat it and therefore spread the seeds of the plant far and wide. Also, there is historical evidence that hunter-gatherers who survived on wild game and meat primarily were healthier and fitter than their successors who ate more carbs, but that doesn’t mean that carbs are bad. Remember that if you follow SCD to the letter, you can eat an entire fruit orchard on your designated cheat day every week. While the percentages work the same with a daily cheat meal or snack, in terms of moderation, the point of Tim’s diet is ketosis for fat loss.
As a physician that deals with a lot of weight problems with patients and myself, i think I can help answer this question. When you’re obese however you have to understand that fruit is essentially a large ball of carbohydrates.
Years ago I did a protein and fruit diet (melon group one day, citrus group one day, and berries on one day) … one type of fruit group per day, no mixing. Easiest diet ever since I didn’t have to think about what to eat or cook or mix together. Inspiring and empowering women to look better, feel better & lead lives they absolutely love. Hi Nicole,I weight train and do circuits primarily for cardio, leaving one day of just straight cardio. Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan, bringA to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until butter is melted. Instructions: Combine olive oil, cider vinegar and sugar in a saucepan, bring to a boil, remove from heat, and cool to room temperature.
Stir pinto beans, black-eyed peas, corn, onion, red bell pepper, and green chilies together in a large bowl.
Unroll second crust, and place on top, seal the edges, trim off excess with a knife and flute edge of pie with either a fork.
Salt is one of the main ingredients in almost every good rub, and it's great for creating flavor. Combine A? c sugar, 3 T hot chili powder, 1 T dried parsley, 1 T onion powder, 1 T garlic powder, 1 T lemonade powder, 2 t black pepper, and 1 t each: sage, marjoram, cumin, dill, mustard powder, basil and celery seed. Then apply the rub and let the ribs sit in the fridge for at least two hours and up to over night. As the rub I was using had lemonade powder in it, I decided to build on those flavors with some hard lemonade as my liquid for moisture. Although this picture didn't turn out the greatest, I can tell you that the ribs were fantastic! DISCLOSURE: Skia€™s Meat Market has paid to sponsor this blog post and provided me with a rack of ribs for the purpose of mentioning it in this article. I made pulled pork the other night and had quite a bit left over so I came up with these delicious pork turnovers. When I heard that KFC took their 11 secret ingredients and mad some tasty nail polish, A I had to find out more. Once the temperature reaches 205A°, take it out of the smoker and let it rest for 30 minutes or so. I have been making chili for many years, and I have entered my recipe in several chili cook-offs and have won a few trophies!!
In a large pot, brown ground beef, after it's browned, add onion and cook for a couple minutes, until onions are tender. I was a young mom in my early 20’s, trying to balance everything and be everything to everyone BUT neglecting myself. After it, I felt compelled to pursue a career as a certified personal trainer and nutrition specialist.
As a newly single-mom, I set out to “4-Hour Workweek” my life, started my own multi-faceted health and wellness company, and spent the last 5 years helping to transform the bodies and lives of hundreds of women around the world in ways they never thought were possible.
By “went for it” I mean – if my weight gain had been an accurate barometer of my son’s birth weight, I should have given birth to a kindergartner! I indulged my cravings, and I packed on the pounds by way of ice-cream, Mexican food, lasagna, and a total break from the adapted SCD nutrition principles I worked so hard to establish in my own life and subsequently teach others. When I felt discouraged, or was having a internal struggle over something I shouldn’t eat, I would look at the photos of where indulging got me — FAT. Turkey wrap “roll-ups” with a little hummus and a sliver of bell pepper or cucumber inside is my fave! I am a 31-year old mother of three, I’ve lost more than 100 pounds on the Slow-Carb Diet, and I work every day to be a success story.
I was feeling some baby blues since my daughters birth this past January but its time I shake it off. I understand why, based on how the diet works, but there are so many nutrients (macro, micro, phytochemicals) that are lost and need to be sourced through pills. As a Paleo guy myself, it’s great to see a Mom incorporate the SCD rules and get healthy.


Cold showering is one way to do this, but there are other ways, like putting an ice pack on your upper back and neck for 20 minutes while watching TV or reading. As long as you get them from natural sources (that is, fruit) and you primarily plan the meal around lean protein, you should be good to go.
In a weight appropriate low body fat individual , fruit is a healthy appropriate part of the diet.
You can minimize these negative effects by sticking to fruits with a low fructose content: Avocados, tomatoes and berries. The way I weight train is actually cardiovascular training (simply elevating the heart rate for an extended period of time – HIIT style). Dip shrimp in the corn flour, coat well, and place into hot oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. A After rinsing and patting the ribs dry, I use some sort of binder or adhesive to help the rub stick better. I thought to myself, "Where have you been all my life, cornbread salad?" It's kind of like potato salad made with cornbread instead of potatoes. It's hard to make it the same way every time, but I recommend adjusting seasonings to your personal taste. 8, 2012 I had a live blood microscopy with Rick Panson, a microbiologist, at the Live-Live store in NYC. I made my family the priority, which was great for them, but I lost myself somewhere along the way. I read it, I applied it day-in and day-out, and within 6 months I had not only lost the 73 POUNDS I had gained after having my first two kids, but I had completely transformed my body! I wanted to empower, educate, and inspire other women to transform their bodies and regain a renewed sense of self — just as I had. Something that will motivate us to walk away from the bread basket, or in my case — back away from the sour cream twice-baked potato!

Good nutrition is the best medicine, it’s very interesting, and not knowing is incredibly dangerous.
While it is natural sugar and arguably the best way to have sugar because of the fiber and nutrients that come along, its still sugar.
So incorporating a cheat day, among other reasons, falls perfectly in line with SCD and Pareto’s law.
There are many important vitamins and nutritional additives that fruit can supply as well as a lot of fiber. Robert Atkins was one of the first people to clearly understand this problem in overweight people. A While I have used honey, syrup and olive oil - most of the time my go-to is plain ol' yellow mustard.
In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown. It's chilled in a spicy tomato juice cocktail with shrimp, avocado, red onions and cilantro! A As I planned on using pineapple in the finished product, I added pineapple juice to the water pan for some added flavor. A My family (aside from me) likes it more on the mild side, so I only used 4-5 jalapenos (de-seeded), and about 14 oz of crushed pineapple. When this pie comes out of the oven, it releases the most wonderful, irresistible aromas of the Italian meats and cheeses!
Despite numerous failed attempts to lose weight and get in shape, the scale just kept creeping up.
The only way to survive the next long winter was to gain a lot of weight in the spring and the summer sort of like a bear.
You can supplement these essential nutrients and vitamins and avoid the sugar all together, not nearly as delicious tho. A Interestingly, I didn't notice any real lemon highlights in the meat, but it was darn good! Simply zap it (short duration for small citrus, longer duration for larger), let it rest for a moment, squeeze as you normally would. A For me, once I'm done with the smoke, I like to wrap it in foil and put it back in for the rest of the time.
You can always combine all the ingredients and put in your slow cooker and slow cook it on low for 8 hours, it makes it ever BETTER! Dredge each chicken in flour and brown each side over medium heat until golden, about 3-4 minutes in butter. He spent an hour going over what he saw in my blood as well as giving me pointers that would move me into a greater state of health. Please do not put your URL in the comment text and please use your PERSONAL name or initials and not your business name, as the latter comes off like spam. Fruits are not candy bars or soda, which are almost a 100% sugar with little or no nutrient value.
Add beans, tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, chili seasoning, V-8, apple cider vinegar and spices. Nor all yogurt is healthy, and soft swirl is almost all full of aspertame…ie cancer food. I believe 80% pure healthy choices and 20% indulgence is a good way to stay healthy and still enjoy your favorite deserts.
Once they are all rolled up, pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the top, covering all the rolled up tortillas. Unroll pie crust dough and place in a lightly greased 9 inch pie pan, fit into pan with edges overlapping.
It is one thing to have lab work and testing, and quite another to witness firsthand what is transpiring in your blood. We’ve evolved to eat carbs which would cause insulin secretion much more than other food classes. After all once you are practicing a healthy lifestyle and diet your cravings and tolerance for junk food will decrease. At the bottom of the page are images that various people suffering with Morgellons graciously contributed to this site.A note on the photos.
Use any remaining dough to cut out dough leaves ( if desired.) Brush the top with the beaten egg.
Rick provided me with photos for this page and I've filled in some of the gaps with screen grabs taken from the video that was taping our session.Nov. There are several stages of microorganisms? here which include yeast, bacteria and fibrin, fungus and mold. In the background are 'shadow cells' which were healthy red blood cells that 'popped' due to the loss of their phospolipid membranes. This can occur from an acid producing diet, and poor assimilation of nutrients.Rick's comments "Healthy blood cells will be perfectly round, nice and dark with a glowing halo around them. Usually, if they have enough moisture inside them they are fully round because there is more pressure inside the cell then outside.""These 'shadow' or ghost cells were once perfectly healthy cells, you can see by their shape and color that they were—and they've now disappeared into the background. Every cell in the body has a double membrane of fat made up of phospholipids, a two layer membrane. The acids can disentegrate the cell membrane as well as when your body ferments sugar, alcohol is the byproduct, and alcohol can easily melt the cell membrane.""Whatever is happening in the blood cells is happening to the rest of the body. Clotted mass of blood cells due to changes in the cells polarity, loss of natural negative electrical charge. When there are this many cells and this little water, we are looking at the hydration level of the body.


These nets act as a defense mechanism for the bacteria so that the white blood cells can't get to them. There is no doubt that that is not part of normal healthy blood, and it's way bigger then what I think could survive in your cardiovascular system without being filtered out by your filter organs. That's why I don't think it's a fiber, per se, because it's so big compared to everything else. From a biology point of view, my best guess is that it would be a contaminent that has nothing to do with you. The red blood cells are fermenting as the yeast eats the cell itself.Above: Neutrophils You go guys! The other arrow is free-floating yeast, and you can see there is quite a bit of it in the blood.
Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is the most important and most effective alkalizer your body makes to try and keep alkaline balance. This is not the greatest water filter but what it does is alkaline the water, so instead of drinking water that is pH 5 or 6, one is drinking water with a pH of 8-10 giving the body a running start on staying alkaline. The benefits of this water are it's antioxidant properties which nullify free radical scavengers, plus the extra oxygen in the water is supposed to give energy and boost alertness and memory.Candida detox Next on the plate is to tackle the candida with capyrilic acid and olive leaf extract (for about 2 months). I'm just going to take the recommended dosages on the bottles adding in one teaspoon of l-glutamine powder per day. The glutamine assists in strengthening the gut wall and helps patch any holes left by the yeast (which could lead to leaky gut syndrome and the problems it leads to, such as food allergies and parasites) Respiration "The biggest acid you make everyday is carbonic acid. Every cell in your body is producing carbon dioxide from the bottom of your feet to the top of your head that is also surrounded by water and the carbon dioxide plus water makes carbonic acid, that's a very simple thing to keep in mind. By looking for acid based balance the amount of acid produced per day must be equal to the amount excreted or nutralized per day. The thing that is happening is, if your body can't neutralize or eliminate the acid you stay at that level, you can't go beyond that level of health. You are taking the chest cavity, ribs and the lungs and trying to get them to be fantastic. Do 10 deep breaths a day 3x's a day (with long exhalation), in one month you are going to have a respiratory function that is 10%-15% better then you have now. Which means 10%-15% more energy and 10-15% less fermentation because fermentation only takes place where there is no oxygen. It's the greatest tool you have and it's free."Alkalizing with baking soda "The methods of getting rid of acidity from the body are respiration, perspiration, defecation and urination. Rick gave me a great little tool (from the vet) that allows me to carry the soda in my back pocket making it more convienient to take. This is problematic for those of us taking supplements upon rising which are not supposed to be taken with clay.
However, I'm trying to fit it in somewhere along the line.Magnesium oxide also called Oxy-Mag (NOW makes it). The process of oxygenating the bowel breaks down and eliminates solidified waste lodged in the large and small intestines. Beware, if you take it (up to one teaspoon at night in water with the juice of 1-2 lemons), you must leave time the next morning to eliminate fully. Rick says that eventually this watery stool will cease when the body is cleaned of accumulated waste.
I try and do this once a week.Food During our session together I became increasingly confused about food. All those veggies will eventually turn to sugar so they have to be balanced out with oils and proteins.
I was told by Nancy that each meal should have a carb, oil and protein and have been following that for some time.
Rick has said the same thing and suggested I start the day with a chia smoothie."The perfect breakfast would be 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, ground to be chia meal with 2 tablespoons of chlorophyl, (spirulina, chlorella or grass powders (greener grasses, alkavision greens). Ground flax seeds can be added." "Chlorophyll is very cleansing and is a blood builder and it has a molecular structure that looks almost identical to red blood cells. When you take the chia seed and the flax seeds which are 28% protein 40-50% omega 3 fatty acids, that's very little carbohydrate there. The greens are 100% carbohydrate and when you mix them together, now you have carbs that burn like paper and you've got fats and oils, with proteins that don't really burn. The fats and oils are like the charcoal—now you have a sustained burn going on and then you don't ferment the sugars because the coal, the fatty acids, are there. So that breakfast with the chia seeds or flax seeds, or both, and any of those chlorophyls you are using can be a very beneficial superfood breakfast. They time release and give it back to you so you have have nice long sustained energy with oils, proteins and carbs all day.
You'd be surprised, you don't need a lot of food, what you need is the right food."Rick suggested the more chia seeds used, the less hungry one will be.
In fact, chia seeds have the highest known whole-food source levels of Omega-3 acids, as measured by percent of weight.• ?Rich In Antioxidants. Chia is a great natural source of antioxidants, including chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, myricetin, quercetin and flavonols.• Full of Important Nutrients.
Chia is an excellent source of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc and copper.
About five percent of this fiber is soluble, which can help reduce cholesterol.•  Builds Endurance. Chia builds stamina and endurance because it steadily releases slow-burning glucose into the bloodstream.• ?Gluten-Free. Since essential amino acids are not produced by the body, it's important to get amino acids from nutrient-rich sources like chia seeds. Research suggests leucine may help regulate blood sugar levels and aid in muscle recovery after exercise.• ?Stays Fresh. 16, 2012 • 2nd Live blood microscopyI saw Rick for a second live blood analysis on November 16, 2012. No ghost cells, no rouleax or sticky blood, the red blood cells are fuller, look stronger and are hydrated. Candida has been greatly reduced in just 2+ months.?The treatment of olive leaf extract, caprylic acid and l-glutamine powder as per his suggestion for candida is working.
I began addressing it by taking one capsule of both the olive leaf and caprylic acid plus one heaping tsp.
After I was sure I had no reactions to this, upped the dosage to 2 caps of each with one tsp. That is not to say that the Morgellons has been effected, we saw two fibers in the dried blood samples. There seemed to me to be more bacteria in the blood and the white blood cells although they are strong and were very active were not plentiful. I attribute the lower level of white blood cell activity to the fact that I was more sedentary these past two months then normally due to a foot problem that kept me off it. Rick suggested that I do lymphatic drainage work using a brush or mitt, followed by getting on a rebounder to jumpstart the lymph moving.
He feels that getting the lymphatics going will produce more white blood cells to remove the bacteria from the blood.The chia seeds in the morning are wonderful. Rick suggests way to activate more white blood cell activity by way of the lymphatic system.
