The longer you can go without eating when you are fasting the better you will burn the fat.

I’m in several different health groups, several different fasting groups. Because learning about health and what to do for my body to feel better is so important to me as I age. As I age I see other people around my age younger, older suffering from having sugar addictions. How I want to reach out to each of them and help them but yet fear they don’t want help? But do they enjoy not feeling well?

Anyhow I’ve been doing IF (Intermittent Fasting) as often as I can the longer you go the easier it becomes. Amazing how I wake up not hungry, don’t get hungry until around lunch time is usually my first meal. Not everyday is it that easy there are days where I’m like I got to eat something right now. That happens that is life.

So I’m in a fasting group where time to time they give you a challenge: Today’s Challenge: Do some physical activity this morning or tomorrow morning before you break-fast.

Wait an hour post workout before consuming a meal. (or longer if you are up to it). It can take a few workouts to adjust but give it a try!

Combing fasting with endurance exercise can produce superior changes in body weight, body composition and lipid indicators of hear disease risk, compared to either exercise or fasting alone.


Chocolate makes you feel good (it’s science) and now you can indulge without any guilt. This sugar-free, dairy-free chocolate is sweetened with Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener. That means only 2 net carbs per serving. Plus its vegan and keto friendly. This combination of chocolate almonds is the perfect, convenient snack to take anywhere.


In the remote mountain highlands of Asia, a group of Buddhist monks called the Luohan achieved enlightenment and ascension through meditation and pure living.

The monks discovered a rare superfood prized for its Sweetness and its ability to raise chi, or life energy. This sacred fruit was named monk fruit and was used for centuries to increase chi and well-being, earning it the nickname “The Immortals Fruit.”

We still harvest monk fruit for Lakanto in the same pristine area and according to traditional and environment methods.

I love the pink salt taste on the dark chocolate so yummy! As always for a discount go to this link: and put in “healthylifestylede” for discount.

How Young Do You feel?

This is my own testimony on the gel. So many people ask me what does it do for you? I say me? Yes you! Well I’ve been on it for awhile and I keep seeing better things everyday. So I’ve said it before guys everyone is different you might feel more things than I feel. You might not feel the same benefits I’ve got from it. The great thing is about our products is if you don’t feel anything after 30 days or so we have a 60 day money back guarantee.

But here are a few of the benefits I have felt from the gel & using Keto4 I started out using the gel having great results some are sleeping better, skin, hair & nails feeling healthier, increased joint mobility, more energy, loss of weight. So many more things. There are some amazing testimonies out there. Everyone’s bodies are different in how you take care of yourself, in how do you eat and so on. Having less inflamation makes me feel better and I’m sure it would you too. But I also still live a healthy lifestyle I eat good. Not perfect but try to stay away from processed foods, sugars, and other things that I know are going to hurt my body. I recently started running on the treadmill again and then working out. Start slow and work your way up is what I have learned. I know everybody wants the results right now. But everything takes time and then you get those results.

Today I ran for a while on Treadmill and then workout it felt great! Feeling great at age 56 makes me have a big smile on. I know a lot of people younger than me that have had more problems. I seriously do not feel my age. I feel amazing and love to talk to people about their health and what

I will admit I have been working out for over 10 years. I feel staying fit keeps the energy up helps your joints stay moving. One day I might not workout as hard as I do now. But I still want to at least go for walks and stay active. I’ve taking many classes on health & nutrition and plan on taking more. I love learning all about the body and what it can do. I done a lot of research on the gel before I got involved now my husband is on it and he loves how it has help him too. Being on it together is great!


” The GEL has definitely changed our lives. We feel better seeing how my husbands hair has changed, how his beard is getting fuller and our energy level is amazing. As we get older having our hormones balance out is so important to feel our best. Thought when we first started this it would be a one time deal. It was not it has changed our lives. Finally a product that you don’t need a prescription for and it’s not so high priced you can’t afford it.

Many People have a common, pre-conceived understanding that only genetics play a key role in how long we live. While to some degree this is true, there are other positive epigenetic factors that play an even bigger role. Epigenetic factors are essentially the overall lifestyle changes made that can disrupt your own genetic make-up. Perhaps, this is how we can extend not just our lives, but the quality of life as well.

Naturally, cells divide only a certain amount of times in the body. The cell division process begins at the time of conception and is necessary for the development and growth of a life. As we grow, cells divide and multiply; however, as we continue to get older cell division slows down.

Human ​Growth ​Hormone ​(HGH) ​is ​a ​single-chain ​peptide ​hormone ​produced ​from ​the ​pituitary gland, ​the ​master ​gland ​in ​the ​body.​

This ​is ​the ​hormone ​that ​helps ​you ​grow ​throughout ​childhood, hence ​the word ​“growth”. ​Around ​the ​age ​of ​20 ​HGH ​is ​at ​its ​peak, ​and ​then ​plummets ​around ​the age ​of ​25. This ​is ​when ​the ​dreadful ​aging ​process ​begins, ​as ​this ​hormone ​slowly ​declines ​for ​the rest ​of ​your ​life. ​But ​don’t worry, ​growing ​isn’t ​the ​only ​thing ​HGH ​is ​good ​for.​

Many ​experts ​say ​that elevating ​growth ​hormone ​when ​you ​are ​older ​can ​bring ​back ​your ​levels.

Feel Your Best

What’s The Best Diet?

There are so many different diets out there its no wonder people are confused. But if you do your research what works for you might be vegan, vegetarian, mediterranean, atkins, paleo, or keto.

I think I’ve done them all.. lol Just because I hear oh she had really good luck with this one or oh he had really good luck with this one.

I’m at the age where I don’t want to be hungry, I don’t want to be miserable, I don’t want to weigh my food. I had a really hard time with Keto when I first started. I come from the last 10 years of eating a lot of fruits, salads and stuff like that. Not saying I still don’t eat those just different. Keto is right now one of the most popular ways of eating. Which I’ll admit I was so curious how these people were eating cream cheese, & heavy cream? But yet they were losing weight. But it does work. I’m not all for eating a lot of cream cheese but a little for cauliflower mash, or for some deserts it works. I always do a lot of research on how many calories? how many carbs? whats the ingredients in this? One of the many things I love about keto is you don’t eat sugar which is really easy when you have sugar substitute.

Such as Lakanto, My husband even gets fooled because it taste so sweet. Lakanto’s mission is to bring chi to all life by creating innovative, delicious, sugar-free products. We inspire people to reach their highest potential in health and wellness by helping them discover their chi.

Lakanto is always coming out with new products. Go here to find the new products. As always when you go to website be sure and put in healthylifestylede for discount. 🙂

Another reason I’m sticking with keto gives me better energy and less inflamation. Plus I really enjoy most of the food. At age 56 it works for me..:) I really enjoyed vegetarian but I always felt empty and its harder to walk in somewhere and order the right things. Keto is pretty easy and if you are thinking about doing this my advice to you is take it slow and ease into it. Don’t get discouraged I did at first I’ve been working on this for a year now. I have finally got where I have no sugar cravings, not as hungry between meals. I have been liking this life style. Do what is best for you I always say. One thing is I burn fat now and not glucose which I love.


When I got up today I said I was not going to run just workout. Well I ended up running better than I have for awhile..:) I decided to take the gel before working out. I truly believe that gives you strength through the day. I also like walking/running on the Nordictrack to get my body warmed up for workouts. When nothing hurts and you can keep going why not go longer right?

I was pretty warm but decide I wanted to have my Extreme Shake first. It has some good protein in it. I knew my workout would be a little harder since I’m on month 2 already.. Today the workout was Total Body Badass and yes you feel like one too. I love doing jumps, kicks whatever I can to make the workout more exciting. Do you ever try to take an action shot? Sometimes its hard to get it just right where you are doing a jump or

Total Body Badass & 2.11 mile run/walk

I’ve also enjoyed being in the fasting group some of them fast for days which I’ve read from Dr. Fung is alright depending on how much weight you want to lose or what you are doing. I usually do a 16-18 hour not much more that that. One day I’d like to go a little longer for like a week do maybe a 48 hour, then 72 hour. Easier to talk about than doing His book is so interesting to me I’m into all the different ways of foods, calories, carbs do to the body kind of stuff. Why? I don’t know it is just so interesting to me. Dr. Fungs book is The Obesity Code. I love trying different things see what it does to the body, energy, health & so on. Eating meat & minimal vegetables has probably been about my favorite one so far after figuring things out. I still like my salads, a few veggies, & I did like deserts. Even though I was eating desserts that hardly had any carbs, no sugar I felt that this is not working right. So I will stop eating any kind of desert for 2 weeks to see if any difference happens. Trying things is my thing I like testing things myself before I suggest anything to anyone else. Cutting out sugar, pastas, breads is the first thing to do. Eating less don’t work because you end up eating more in the end. So if you can fuel your body at the right times you won’t always be hungry. It’s a mind game. You train your body & mind it is strong. I don’t like to say I’m on any diet because that can be a huge disaster thinking I’m on a diet oh my it’s not a diet it’s a lifestyle that I want to be in. If you like what you’re eating then don’t change if you feel good and you have no problems. But I have noticed as I age I need more, I’ve done the Vegan thing,& I’ve done the Vegetarian thing. It didn’t fulfill me or my husband. I like having little inflammation, I like having a lot of energy. But thats me…Do what feels best to you!

Stress Relievers We All Need Them

What do you do to help with your stress? Well they’re several different things a person can do. I like to workout lately I’ve been walk/running to warm up before a workout. I’ve really enjoyed that. WHAT? Who enjoys running and working out? I do I know some don’t or most don’t but I do it’s my addiction. I don’t think its a bad one but sometimes I annoy my husband with it because my question always is how long do I have? I can get a quick run or workout in. It relieves so much stress for me. P.S do you write yourself notes?

Another thing that helps with stress is when I get don’t with running & working out I sometimes have a delicious shake. Not just any shake this shake is ExtremeShake A probiotic protein shake something I need when I don’t want to overeat but put something into my body that I know is good for me. This shake is one that I like because it don’t store fat it burns it..WIN! Extreme Shake is a delicious natural flavored advanced keto-friendly probiotic, protein shake with added benefit of patented Sensoril Ashwagandha.

Its vanilla flavor I put a 1/4 of frozen banana in it sometimes just to help with anything I need for the body. 🙂

Some of the features on this delicious shake are reduces sugar cravings, advanced probiotics & prebiotics for digestive support, supports stress-reduction & restful sleep. I’ve been enjoying it its gluten free, soy free, gmo free.. It’s very filling…

Delicious Vanilla shake

Do you like to cook? I love to cook knowing what’s going into our bodies is so important to me..:) As we age I know I need good foods, to stay strong and keep the energy level up. Yes of course we have those days you go out to eat but I struggle with it because I always wonder what is in their ingredients that people love? So usually I order something very simple meat & veggies so I feel satisfied. When I make recipes brings joy to me. If I can help anyone out by being a nutritional leader I will. I continue to study & listen to many doctors that have studied different diets of people and what’s good and what is bad. Right now I’m listening to the book from Dr. Jason Fung, MD THE OBESITY CODE. Check it out if you have a chance really interesting.

Winning the Mental Battle

When you prepare for a run or just to even get in better shape do you run for as long as you can to start? Or do you run a little each day?

Well I’m just seeing how far and how long I can run without over tiring myself to go workout for 30 minutes after. I love staying in shape. When I run instead of anything hurting first thing comes to mind is that’s all the farther you got? lol I feel stronger everyday probably because I take the best products I can. As we age things don’t work as great as they use to. But who’s to say I don’t want to still feel as great as I can. I been taking this gel that seems to make me feel stronger all the time. Not only stronger but one of the things I really noticed how deep my sleep is how great that is. Thats a big plus right there. I also noticed how much faster I recover from running & working out! Has helped with muscle growth and staying strong.

Running for the last couple of weeks starting a slower pace, and going a little further each time. Started out at 2.1 and gradually have got back up to 3. 1 miles. Which I want to keep going longer distance but we’ll see. Working out is just more my style. I’ve been enjoying running then work out to Jericho in morning meltdown 100. Her cardio is pretty intense..:)

Workout today after running 3.1 miles was Downbeat strength it wasn’t that bad. Working all the parts of the body. I went with 8’s & 10’s today. Doing squats I don’t like real heavy.

After running & workout decided to put some good fats in my body to recover. So it was bacon & waffles..YUM! So easy to make too. 2 eggs, 2-4 tbsp almond flour, 2 oz cream cheese, 1 tbsp. of coconut oil, 1/2 tsp of baking powder.

So I’m not the normal 56 year old when I get up I prepare what I’m going to do right away put on workout clothes and have a plan. Almost always will workout and now I’ve started to run, walk on treadmill again. Not sure how long I will run I go through spells of loving it but not liking it. But it’s all good as long as you get up and move you’re doing good right?

Core & Total Body Badass

I’ve been patiently waiting to be able to do this workout with Jericho McMathews & her team. I’ve been doing 21 Day Extreme and 80 Day Obsession and I love Shaun T in Max Out 30. But I also like new moves and work different parts of the body. I have decided to do doubles for 60 Days. So today 2nd day Core Inferno & Total Body Badass.. Wow! My arms do burn a little not bad. I’m also almost to my 18 hour fast which seems to give me more umph. I love doing fast as long as I don’t go in starvation mode.

Some of the moves today with core just working the core feel the burn.

After that I continued to doing Total Body Badass and oh my gosh it was total body. lol…But at 56 I feel great and I love to still workout for 30-60 minutes. I know since I’ve been taking the gel my muscle tone has improved, my joints haven’t hurt, & my weight management has been much easier. My husband is on the gel as well he has lost the fat and gained his muscle back. He says he sleeps a lot better too. That’s a plus right there.
