How To Stay True To Your Diet Or Weight Loss Plan During Your Spring Break Vacation

Spring Break vacation will be here shortly.  For some colleges, spring break is actually going on this week.  Many grade school, middle school and high school students will be enjoying a well deserved vacation.  It is a great time to enjoy the family and spend some quality time together.  In addition to travel tips, you may struggle with staying on a healthy diet.  If you are like me and dieting, what in the world do you do so you don’t blow your diet out of the water.

There are actually some simple things that you can do to limit the damage a Spring Break or Easter break vacation can cause.

 

1)  Drink water.  Replace water with other beverages.  Limit alcohol consumption and fancy coffee drinks.  Pay attention to the calories in what you drink.

2)  Bring healthy treats and snacks on your trip so you have low calorie healthy options for you and your family.  Not only is it smart, it can save you some cash as well if you have snacks in the car or the hotel.

3)  Get your exercise in.  Okay, so you are enjoying life and eating a little more than normal.  Increasing your exercise, even walking can help burn those extra calories.

4)  Eat healthy dark chocolate 20-30 minutes to curb cravings. dis11-210x300 Healthy chocolate is not the candy you find in stores, but is a high antioxidant superfood filled with antioxidants and flavonoids which help reduce inflammation.  By enjoying a piece of this healthy chocolate with a glass of water, you will curb cravings naturally and not even realize it.  Power squares are just 33 calories each and perfect for snacks for the kiddos as well.  Order at GoColdPressed.com.

5) Limit unhealthy treats to a minimum and make smart choices. Instead of a triple scoop ice cream cone with a waffle cone, opt for a single scoop in a bowl.  You still enjoy, you just enjoy in moderation.

6)  Focus on making memories instead of on food and enjoy your time with the people that matter and mean the world to you!

lynette877Enjoy your vacation.  You work hard all year and if you gain a few pounds, you can quickly lose the extra weight when you return to reality.  I for one have been on the healthy chocolate diet and I have lost 16 pounds in just 4 weeks.  I will be employing these tips especially the healthy chocolate before a meal.  I am also doing a protein shake every morning for breakfast.  My go to shake:  The Xocai wellness protein shake.  Not only does it keep me focused on my diet goals, it also gives me energy and less pain.  Definitely a plus for traveling.

Periodontal Gum Disease Recovery And Dark Chocolate? Dentist Dr. Stephen J. Smith Of Salt Lake City Shares Dental Study Results.

Periodontal disease can be serious.  According to Web MD, “Periodontitis, also generally called gum disease or periodontal disease, begins with bacterial growth in your mouth and may end — if not properly treated — with tooth loss due to destruction of the tissue that surrounds your teeth.”  

People used to think that bacteria in the mouth could not affect the rest of the body.  Recent studies show that is not the case.  In fact, other systemic problems including an increase in heart disease or stroke can be affected.  Women with advanced gum disease can even have pre-term labor.  Keeping your mouth and gums healthy!

I Lost 16 Pounds in 4 Weeks Eating Chocolate And So Can You! Easiest Weight Loss Plan On The Planet!

jeanettelynettebrandedWhen someone told me I could lose weight eating chocolate, I honestly thought they were crazy.  I mean honestly chocolate?  Chocolate has to be my absolute favorite food on the planet.  And don’t even get me started about women craving chocolate during that time of the month.  For over 20 years I avoided chocolate even though I loved it.  I was told it was high in calories and bad for me.  What they failed to tell me is that cold pressed chocolate, chocolate not cooked like candy is actually REALLY good for you.  So good that raw cacao is the highest antioxidant product on the planet.  So trust me when I found out that there was a healthy chocolate company making a cold pressed chocolate that keeps in all the antioxidants of flavonoids from the raw cacao, you know I was all over that bandwagon.

I just completed week 4 of my healthy chocolate xocaislimchallenge and I am now down 16 pounds!  This past week I lost 4.1 pounds eating chocolate.  Can it get any better than this?

So how did I do this?  Here is what I did.  I have been replacing two meals a day with the Xocai protein meal shake.  My favorite recipe always includes some form of frozen banana because that makes my shake taste like ice cream and I love that.  I also have a 600 calorie meal, up to two healthy snacks and Xocai chocolate nuggets or Xobiotic chocolates for cravings.  I am drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day and walking at least 20 minutes–not all at once.

I have health problems like many of you and I found out that this shake is actually helping me have more energy, less pain and I am sleeping better.  Not bad considering I am losing weight too.  In fact I am enjoying a piece of yummy dark chocolate right now.  Hardly feels like a diet at all.

Natural Ways To Reduce And Relieve Arthritis Pain In Hand and Arm

That’s partly why antioxidants are so important.”

One great way to increase the antioxidants you

Lady Gaga Kills It At The Oscars With Her Hills Are Alive Sound Of Music Performance And Hug With Julie Andrews

Wow, if you did not watch the 2015 Oscar Award Show this evening, you really missed it.  Even more exciting tonight was the Lady Gaga singing  a stunning trilogy from the Sound Of Music.  It is hard to believe that it has been 50 years since Julie Andrews sang the famous songs and was in the Sound Of Music Musical.

My hope is that you were able to experience the June Vacay 068stunning performance of Lady Gaga.  This truly showcases Lady Gaga’s talent regardless what you feel for her more mainstream music.  She is a stand out and I am thankful I was able to see this wonderful performance.

Why You Should Avoid Dark Chocolate Made With Any Kind Of Chocolate Liquor

 

A question I am often asked is what makes Xocai Healthy Chocolate Company chocolate different than other chocolate? That is a very good question and I hope to answer it for you.  When you shop for high cocoa percentage dark chocolate, be sure to look on the wrapper and search for the word “chocolate liquor”.  Even the organic dark chocolate bars that say they are healthy seem to be made with chocolate liquor, liquor, cocoa liquor or cacao liquor.  This liquor is made by heating and dutching the dark chocolate at very high temperatures, melting it down and then turning it into your favorite confections.  Unfortunately by heating cocoa at high temperatures, you do lose much of the antioxidant content which is so vital for our health and by which the majority of the chocolate studies you find are based.

dietThat is why it is important to eat chocolate that is cold pressed, not heated or cooked at high temperatures.  Xocai chocolates use a patented cold press technology which does keep in the antioxidants and flavonoids of the raw cacao.  Even better, every piece of the Xocai brand individually wrapped chocolates and the boxes, have the amount of antioxidants and flavonoids listed so you know exactly what you are getting.bariatricmed

Thankfully Xocai Healthy Chocolate Company chocolates have their products verified by an independent lab to determine the antioxidant and flavonoid values.

Not all chocolate is the same.

Simply saying there are flavonoids and antioxidants in a specific chocolate brand is not enough, you deserve proof.   It is your health at stake after all.  the chocolate and turning it into a liquor.

No wonder people notice a difference when they start eating the Xocai healthy chocolate Company chocolate.  They may noticed improved energy, sleep and less pain.  Eating lots of antioxidants is good for your health.  I get my antioxidants in Xocai healthy dark chocolate.  How do you get yours?

There are no waxes, fillers or processed sugars in Xocai chocolate.  In addition, they are GMO free, gluten free and diabetic friendly,  I also love the Xocai wellness protein shake made with the raw cacao, acai and blueberry.  Each serving has over 56,000 ORACfn and 21 grams of protein.  It even made the cover of the American Journal of Bariatric Medicine, The Bariatrician as a healthy cacao polyphenols based diet.  In the study, the average person lost 31 pounds in just 12 weeks and over 5 inches in the waist!

So as you check out the dark chocolate at your local store, now you know what to look for.

Don’t go dutch.

Don’t go processed.  Don’t go heated.

Finally There Are Yummy Gluten Free Options Like Brownies And Dark Chocolate; My Personal Review

glutenfreebStruggling to find great tasting snacks and desserts can be difficult if you are gluten free.  I have tasted more than a few nasty desserts that literally remind me of cardboard.  My 18 year old son is gluten free at this point and it is difficult for him.  He wants to eat what his teenage friends are eating.  I get that.  So I continue to search for yummy desserts that he and I can eat.

One recent dessert was a big hit.  It was the Krusteaz Brownie Mix.  It was easy to make and honestly had a nice chewy texture as well.  For me there was not much difference from any other brownie mix you could buy in your local grocery store.  So this brownie mix is a winner!  From the picture, you can see we could not wait to try them out.  :-)  brownie

I have also found dark gluten free chocolate that is healthy as well.  This is off the charts in the amount of antioxidants and flavonoids in the product which is great if you are not eating 8-10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.  So far my son and I love the Xocai Nuggets and the Xocai Xobiotic that has a probiotic.  We also do the Xocai meal replacement shake which is gluten free, 21 grams of protein and a complete source of nutrition.  It makes a great breakfast shake.  Mine is made with 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup ice, 1 cup water and two scoops of the shake mix.  Yum!

Thankful that we are finally finding some yummy spinachgluten free options.  If you have not tried the gluten free brownie mix, Amazon has it on sale here and I highly recommend.  I think the chocolate chip bites make it taste great.  The Xocai gluten free healthy chocolate is available at GoColdPressed.com.  This chocolate is not just gluten free, it is diabetic friendly and made with no waxes, fillers, processed sugars or GMO’s.  It uses a cold pressed patented method to keep in the antioxidants and flavonoids in the raw cacao which is the highest antioxidant superfood on the planet.  So feel good about ordering this one found here.

Contact me if you have any questions.  I am Lynette Henk and can be reached at (877) 208-8172 or you can email me at lynette@liveforchocolate.com.  More information on the healthy chocolate treats is available at LiveForChocolate.com.

Don’t Give Up On Your Dream or Challenge ; You Can Lose The Weight

I was on a chocolate diet weight loss call this photo (1)evening and I heard this quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, “Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.”  This is an excellent motivational quote for success in business as well as success in life or meeting your goals.  I don’t know about you, but my goal is to lose 51 more pounds in the next 6 months.  I know I can do it but it is a struggle.  It is my dream.  It is not a small dream, that is a lot of weight but I know I can do whatever I put my mind to.

I am thankful to have found a science based diet that is healthy for me as well as proven to work.  It was featured in the Bariatrician Journal for Bariatric Doctors in the American Journal of Bariatric Medicine.  Not only was it featured on the cover, the entire study was included.  The average participant in the study lost 31 pounds in 12 weeks and over 5 inches around the waist. So not only do I have my dream of meeting my goal, but it is realistic as well as there is proven evidence that it can be done.

shakebrandedSo what am I doing?

I am replacing two meals a day with the Xocai meal replacement shake.  Right now I am making my shake with frozen banana, water, ice, peanut butter and two scoops of the shake.  I may change it up later in the week and switch to two scoops of the Chocolate Diet shake mix, almond milk and fresh strawberries as they are easy to find right now in Florida.  In fact, people will be attending the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City starting February 26th to March 8th.  They also have the Plant City Strawberries at the Punta Gorda Florida Farmers Market so I should not have any problem finding my strawberries!

After my shakes, I also have a 600 calorie meal and up to two healthy snacks plus my healthy chocolate nuggets or power squares for cravings. I love that I don’t have to feel guilty about eating dark chocolate.  One power square is just 33 calories and tastes amazing.   I am drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day and exercising a minimum of 20 minutes a day.  Even a walk is good plus my dog is loving being walked more often.  We are a large family and everyone seems to be taking our dog for a walk.  It is not a hard diet.  I love that every Monday we have a call that keeps you focused.
