  • Why am I so passionate about changing your life by changing your diet? Because I have lived it… This transformation is ME and I did it four years ago at the age of 52. I have been active all my life, competing in various sports, martial arts and running since I was a teen. But motherhood and an aging metabolism had added those extra pounds even though I was still exercising regularly. What I did on Day One was give up added sugars, highly processed carbs and commit to eating REAL food. To be honest, I hated it at first because I didn’t realize how addicted I was to junk until I couldn’t have it. But if there’s one thing that is stronger than my sweet tooth, it’s my competitiveness and I had signed up for a 6-wk challenge and I wasn’t about to cave. About half way through, the cravings started to subside and my tastebuds and metabolism started to adjust. By the end of the six weeks I had lost 17 lbs. and about 30% of my body fat - and won the challenge! At that point I stepped up my strength ...

To be honest, I hated it at first because I didn’t realize how addicted I was to junk until I couldn’t have it. But if there’s one thing that is stronger than my sweet tooth, it’s my competitiveness and I had signed up for a 6-wk challenge and I wasn’t about to cave.

About half way through, the cravings started to subside and my tastebuds and metabolism started to adjust. By the end of the six weeks I had lost 17 lbs. and about 30% of my body fat - and won the challenge! At that point I stepped up my strength training and conditioning and added some lean muscle, so at the end of 90 days I was down a total of 30 lbs. and you can see the results. Since then, I have kept all the weight off (although looking at that pic now reminds to get back on that ab work…haha) because there’s really no way to gain it back based on how I eat and the amount of activity I do. I don’t count calories, track my food or even obsess about enjoying an amazing desert every once in awhile. All things in moderation is a great way to live your life and it’s what we preach here at The Noble Path Foundation. 
Eating REAL food (i.e., grown from the ground and not in a lab), reducing or eliminating as many processed foods as possible and getting plenty of sleep and exercise will yield amazing results. If it sounds too simple and too good to be true, it isn’t. Take it from someone who has experienced it firsthand. Change your diet and you WILL change your life. And the best part is that you can start with your very next bite. Please, JUST DO IT. I want nothing more than for you to live your best life ever!  #changeyourdiet #changeyourlife #forkdisease #eatREALfood"

  • If you or someone you know suffers from acne, you might want to consider a little BARBERRY in your life. Never heard of barberries? Check out this double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial of fifty 12- to 17-year-olds with moderate to severe acne. Half got a sugar pill; the other half got the equivalent of about a teaspoon of dried barberries three times a day for a month. The results were quite remarkable. After four weeks on the placebo, there was no change in the amount or severity of their acne. But in the barberry group, the teens experienced a 43% drop in the number of acne lesions, and about a 45% drop in inflamed lesions, which is extraordinary! In addition, there were no reported side effects and the researchers concluded that the extract of dried barberry is a safe, well-tolerated, and effective choice in teenagers with moderate to severe acne vulgaris. There are other fabulous anti-inflammatory and antibacterial health benefits associated with barberries- elevating it to an e...

There are other fabulous anti-inflammatory and antibacterial health benefits associated with barberries- elevating it to an even higher super-food status than the goji berry- so even if your skin is clear and silky smooth, you might still want to consider adding these gems to your diet. I like mine sprinkled on oatmeal with banana, walnuts and some freshly ground cinnamon!  #eatrealfood #forkdisease #plantpoweredprevention
