Paleo increased fitness

I have been eating according to the Paleo Diet for about a year.  I have also veered off with gluten free breads and sugar at times. Amazing how tired, achy I feel when I cheat. Also pounds and inches come on really fast when I am not strictly Paleo.  I have seen a marked difference in my workouts at CrossFit Vero Beach in the past 2.5 weeks since only eating Paleo. My running times have improved without any of the usual knee aches and I am lifting more. Today Thrusters at 75#  that is a 35# increase.  Paleo has been the piece I have been missing.  I had lost 20lbs. years ago with the Shaklee CINCH products, still use them for maintenance and keeping my immune system up.  I also use all their other products like the non-toxic biodegradable cleaners, shampoos, deodorant, sunscreen all with no chemicals or artificial flavors, colors or sugar substitutes. 

So I have been on the right track for my weight, immune system, mind and energy for years. Paleo has brought me to the next level.

As Mark Sisson says in The Primal Blueprint, Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy.  That is exactly what it has done for me.

So my program, eat Paleo, use Shaklee full line of products – food supplements including their essential fatty acids, non – toxic cleaners, products for my skin and teeth that promote health due to  being chemical fee.  What a  great recipe for health and success!


New habits for healthy weight loss

Living gluten-free has been a first step for me.  Actually doing a ton of research, getting referrals as to what the top brand of products to use was my first step in starting new habits.  When I  switched to the Shaklee food supplements the inches and pounds that had been stuck to me began to disappear. Quickly!  My moods shifted from mostly depressed to being energetic and feeling happy.  My hormones began to balance. (my husband was very thankful for that)

All that made creating new habits so much easier. I was now running downhill instead of feeling like I was always hiking uphill towards happiness and my ideal weight.  I was motivated to continue taking my new set of vitamins because they were working.  I loved feeling happy and fitting into my old jeans that had been collecting dust in the closet. 

I need payoff to change my behavior. Whether it is how I eat or being in the habit of not feeling good.  16 years ago I got that payoff  all because Susan, the owner of Ridgefield Athletic Club introduced me to the full line of Shaklee products and guided me with a personalized program with the weight loss products, skin care and getting the non-toxic biodegradable products in-house as well.       I had no idea that toxins from household cleaners could block weight loss. According to Dr. Paula Baillie-Hamilton by reducing the amount of  “Chemical Calories”  in my home it would help prevent further damage to my slimming system. Go to The Body Restoration Plan if you want to learn more about the slimming system.

Once I was feeling better, had more energy and had some success under my belt with losing weight I was ready to change my behavior.  When I was tempted to watch TV in the kitchen I would catch myself and go for a walk or go outside and read.  TV in the kitchen was big eating spot for me.

Gluten-free vitamins and protein

I have been loyal to a brand of products for over 15 years.  The reason for this is:

  • First vitamins and protein shakes that balanced my blood sugar, which meant no more cravings, weight loss of over 20 pounds without feeling deprived, the end of my 3 weeks of PMS every month and more energy.
  • The manufacturer has been naturally safe, effective and green for over 52 years. Backed up by over 100 scientific papers published in peer-reviewed journals. Science and proof have always been important to me.
  • The company was first in the world to be Climate Neutral certified to totally offset greenhouse gas emissions. I like to know my money is going to a company that supports my values and vision. 

Here is my suggestion for a basic package of vitamins and complimentary products:   ALL GLUTEN/WHEAT/DAIRY-FREE

Vitalizer: Promotes brain, joint health, digestion, energy, immune system strength.

CINCH Shake: Halts cravings by balancing blood sugar and building lean muscle mass. Part of weight loss and maintenance program

CINCH Protein bars: Peanut butter or lemon cranberry are a delicious, convenient way to get 10 grams of protein at 120-130 calories, 3 grams of fiber and low glycemic index. part of weight loss and weight maintenance program

NutriFeron: Provides immune support at cellular level. Great for allergies.

Get Clean Kit: Non-toxic, biodegradable cleaners and laundry detergent.  I have 3 bottles under my kitchen sink that clean the entire house.  They each last about a year. The all-purpose cleaner is a 16 ounce bottle that makes 48 gallons of organic super cleaning concentrate. This kit would cost you $3400.00 in the store. Kit saves you thousands of dollars.   Did you know that women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer due to their household cleaners. -15 yr study by Toronto indoor air conference.   I do not want to be one of those statistics.

If you want to see if these products  work as good or better than what you are using (like they did for me)  go to and redirect your spending. The “About Me” page has the products outlined.  I am also available to personalize programs, my clients love that, keeps them from wasting their money and saves time.
