Around this time every year, Everyone wants to detox!
If you Spring Clean your house, you should
Spring Clean your body!
I for one, feel like I could use a fresh start to “air” out all that’s been bound and settled in my body over the winter. Personally, I think it’s a fantastic idea.
Spring time is the next fresh start after the New Year’s weight loss vows.
If you know me and my weight loss philosophy at all, I am a huge proponent of eating real food for weight loss. Commercial Detox Programs that require you to buy powders and capsules to “detox” are not what I recommend.
It just seems unnatural…doesn’t it?
Detox time is not the time to bring synthetic or processed anything into your diet NOR is it a time to exclude important nutrients such as protein as many juice cleanses do.
I think the best way to cleanse your body from the inside is with a REAL and WHOLE food program that leaves out all processed food and ingredients…mainly
If you are psyched about Spring Cleaning your body from the inside with real food and if you’re interested in taking your
Program to the next level,
my recommended Go-To-Detox program is the
The 21-Day Sugar Detox
Be sure to let me know when you’re going to start so I can support you
Strength & Love,
I can’t take credit for this post but, I sent it to my newsletter list & received tons of ecstatic responses. One woman even said she’s printing it out to paste on her refrigerator!
Eggs do not cause heart disease and are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. Eggs for breakfast can help you lose weight.
Newer studies have proven that saturated fat does not cause heart disease. Natural foods that are high in saturated fat are good for you.
3. Everybody Should Be Eating Grains
Grains are relatively low in nutrients compared to other real foods like vegetables. The gluten grains in particular may lead to a variety of health problems.
4. Eating Alot of Protein is Bad for Your Bones & Kidneys
Eating a high protein diet is associated with improved bone health and a lower risk of fracture. High protein also lowers blood pressure and improves diabetes symptoms,
which should lower the risk of kidney failure.
5. Low Fat Foods Are Good for You
Low-fat foods are usually highly processed products loaded with sugar, corn syrup or artificial sweeteners. They are extremely unhealthy.
6. You should eat Small Meals throughout Your Day
There is no evidence that eating many small meals throughout the day is better than fewer, bigger meals. Not eating from time to time is good for you. Increased meal frequency is associated with colon cancer.
7. Carbs Should Be Your Biggest Source of Calories
The low-fat, high-carb diet is a miserable failure and has been proven repeatedly to be vastly inferior to lower-carb, higher-fat diets.
8. High Omega-6 Seed & Vegetable Oils Are Good For You
Humans need to get Omega-6 and Omega-3 fats in a certain ratio. Eating excess Omega-6 from seed oils raises your risk of disease.
9. Low Carb Diets are Dangerous
Low-carb diets are the healthiest, easiest and most effective way to lose weight and reverse metabolic disease. It is a scientific fact.
10. Sugar is Unhealthy Because it Contains Empty Calories
The harmful effects of sugar go way beyond empty calories. Sugar wreaks havoc on our metabolism and sets us up for weight gain and many serious diseases.
11. High Fat Foods Will Make You Fat
Diets that are high in fat (and low in carbs) cause much greater fat loss than diets that are low in fat.
Here are a few. Try out some of your own…it’s fun!
“I was Sexy ALL Damn Weekend!”
“Im WAY too Sexy to workout today!”
“My BUTT is really, really, really Sexy!”
“OMG, I am So Sexy!”
“I was so Sexy, I couldn’t move for 5 DAYS!”
“I had to be helped out of bed, I was SO Sexy!”
“I was so Sexy, I couldn’t even SIT DOWN!”
“Lunges? Do you KNOW how Sexy I am!?!”
“But I’m Still Sexy from LAST week!”
“That workout made me way TOO Sexy!”
“I’m so Sexy it hurts!”
“It’s been a LONG time since I’ve been THIS Sexy!”
Kittens, If you’re not feeling REALLY REALLY Sexy, it’s time to change your workout so that you do!

You know you’ve got Sugar & Carb addiction when you absolutely MUST HAVE something sweet or you have low energy, cloudy thinking, or intense hunger regularly. And these are just the few problems caused by sugar because long term sugar consumption can cause disease in the body.
My colleague, Diane Sanfilippo has created the 21 Day Sugar Detox Program to help kick sugar addiction and bust through carb cravings so you can free yourself from these ailments, focus on work, family, free time, and lose a little weight. She does this by offering an eating plan with key foods to avoid and others that are “must eat” foods to detox your body.
The detox offers a choice of THREE LEVELS to customize it for your needs. Whether you want to ease into the detox or kick sugar “cold turkey,” there is an option for you. Basically what you get is a Full Color, 90 Page, instantly downloadable, interactive eBook filled with information, guides, recipes, tips & tricks to help you through 3 WEEKS.
If you click on over to the 21 Day Sugar Detox, you’ll see for yourself all the testimonials of benefits from people who have done the detox themselves. Click here, take a look and if you decide to give it a go, send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know when you started so that I may offer support. Go on, check it out!
Don’t forget my Slim Down To Zip Up program comes with a week of free coaching on exactly what to eat and how to exercise to immediately reduce bloat and see a noticeable difference on the scale! As many of my clients have!
“I used the Paleo, Slim Down To Zip Up program, and I lost five lbs. Instantly! I felt more energy, less bloat and more control over myself again! Since I started eating better in November, I have also started working out with a trainer. I have now lost 12 lbs, and almost 4% body fat! I only wish I lived in the city to take this journey with you! Thank you! I have needed a push for years! Your words everyday pushed me off the couch to a much higher, healthy quality of life! I would recommend the Slim Down To Zip Up Program, and have already!” ~ Wendy P.
“Jill, my friend and I are sitting here talking about a “Puh Layo” diet. I think I saw something on your website about it but now we see it everywhere. What gives? Can you tell me more about it? Is there a book I should get or not get?”
Just last month, I released an eBook called Slim Down To Zip Up that has a strong focus on “Paleo” (pronounced Pay Leo) foods and an exercise program for fast fat loss. ALL my clients that did the program lost 10 lbs and more. YES, in one week. My friend Ro even told me that she lost 12 lbs on the plan even without doing as much exercise as she would have liked.
That’s damn good testimony!
Do you want to lose 10 lbs or more? The success of my eBook program is attributed to eating a Paleo diet that includes the following foods:
Meat, Veggies, Nuts & Seeds, Little Starch, & No Sugar
Did I make this up? Am I the inventor of the Paleo concept? Heck no, the amazing world of Paleo nutrition is backed by nutritionists, nutritions therapists, scientists, and a whole host of other pros dedicating their lives to our health. I have experienced the health benefits first hand and my clients who adopt eating Paleo foods, have lost tons of body fat.
As you can see in the graphic below, Burning Off Stored Body Fat is just one of many benefits of eating a Paleo Diet. I love the way Rob Wolf of The Paleo Solution suggests you try it…
“don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself.”
As far as books go, some of my

What happens during the holiday’s when your trainer is faced with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes & pumpkin pie?
The story goes, that my mom is an amazing cook and I am sure you can relate to this senario in your own family over the holidays. Every family has their specialty dish. Ours happens to be the infamous dumplings & pumpkin pie.

Before you decide to start an exercise program & clean up your diet, there is a moment, a vital moment of either frustration about where your body is OR excitement to begin a new program to FINALLY change your body once and for all.
This is turning your switch ON. This is vital place #1.
Then there is the moment when you are plugging away but getting bored with what your eating, or exercising too much and feeling sore & tired, or you’ve made so many changes at once that you notice you’re losing motivation and are tempted to stop all together. Read the rest of this entry »
Halloween candy will be everywhere. Even if you don’t have children, adults & kids alike will find bite sized, fun sized treats in overwhelming quantities. Just because you are here reading my post today, I know that you are far more interested in quality of foods (even if they are treats!) rather than the quantity.
I’m not giving you a set of rules telling you to avoid the Halloween tricks or treats but I will give you a few recipes for delicious, real, gluten free, “Paleo,” (if you will) candies and booty. Read the rest of this entry »
Hey Jill: I was just watching PBS about the Ice Man. He ate grains and meat and was lactose intolerant. However he had heart disease. Go figure. How do you have heart disease eating the paleo diet and climbing up and down mountains. When I worked in Glacier NP I ate pancakes and chocolaty covered granola bars and I was in great shape
Thanks for sharing! First and foremost, we are all different genetically. What may benefit me may be different for you or the Ice Man.
I hesitate to promote any way of eating that may be considered a “diet” as the word implies many impressions least of which are eating real, single ingredient foods. That said, the Paleo diet is the closest description of eating anti-inflammatory foods (ie: real, unprocessed) promoting health & weight loss and the research plus marketing has been done already. I am taking advantage of the latter because I have seen so many benefits personally, with my clients, and in the fat loss arena. Read the rest of this entry »
