Bye Bye Belly Fat 28 Day Challenge


Starting Sept 17th thru Oct 14th

What Is The Bye Bye Belly Fat Challenge Overview


What To Eat During The Challenge



How To Order Your AdvoCare Products




Aerobic exercise, along with proper nutrition consisting of the right amount of vitamins and
supplements, and well balanced meals is more essential when trying to say bye bye to your belly fat more-so than weight training. 


The right amount of aerobic exercise is your best bet when it comes to saying bye bye to that belly fat. Aerobic training greatly reduces belly fat and liver fat and improves some other risk markers for diabetes and heart disease. 

Aerobic training burns 67% more calories when compared to resistance training. Even moderation works. What really counts is how much exercise you do, how many miles you walk, and how many calories you burn, If you choose to work at a lower aerobic intensity, it will simply take longer to burn the same amount of fat.

Belly Fat Loss: The Tips

You can't pick where on your body you lose fat from, but you can burn fat from all over, including your belly. The first step to take in designing a fat-busting diet is to cut your calories. You need a calorie deficit of 500 per day to lose 1 pound per week. 

To work out how many calories you need to maintain your weight, active men should multiply their body weight in pounds by 15 and active women should multiply their body weight in pounds by 12. Sedentary men should multiply by 13 and sedentary women by 10. Take 500 from your result to find how many calories you need to eat daily to lose 1 pound per week, or take away 1,000 per day for a loss of 2 pounds per week.

Belly Fat Breakfast

Make protein your best friend at breakfast. Eating more protein first thing means you're less likely to snack on fatty foods later in the day. Starting your day with fat-free or low-fat Greek yogurt mixed with berries and almonds, a ham and vegetable omelet, a protein shake and a serving or two of fruit, or a couple of pieces of lean grilled bacon on a tortilla.

Light Lunch

Keeping protein up is key at lunch too. Base your lunch around a protein-filled food, such as turkey, canned tuna or salmon, meal replacement drink or cottage cheese. What you have with your protein depends on your calorie intake. 

If you're active and have higher calorie needs, you may wish to go for a sandwich, bagel or wrap, some fruit and mixed nuts. If your calories are on the lower end, however, making a salad with your protein, or having a soup on the side will allow you to get a bigger, more filling lunch for fewer calories.

End The Day Right

You needn't go down the route of plain, boring grilled chicken breast and steamed broccoli every night to lose belly fat. Make your dinners more interesting to increase dietary adherence. I suggests lean steak and pepper tacos, a shrimp and avocado rice bowl, a vegetarian pizza made with a thin whole-wheat crust, salmon with a yogurt and cucumber sauce for your evening meal. 

Again, aim for a high-protein meal, with moderate amounts of healthy fats and whole-grain carbohydrates.

Snacks

If you like to snack between your meals, you can't go wrong with low-sugar yogurts or cottage cheese, fresh fruit, pre-cooked meat, reduced fat cheese, raw nuts, low-carb protein bars or whole-grain crackers. 

The main thing to consider when picking any food or meal is your total daily calorie intake -- you must consume fewer calories than you burn to shift your belly fat. If you don't feel like you're making progress, you're probably eating too much and not exercising enough, so drop your calories a little and start training more, while saying bye bye belly fat!

Four Simple Weight Loss Tips

Dwight after completing AdvoCare Slim Down Part 1 - Jumpstart

Let's face it, we all need to be healthy and fit. We each have our own reasons for wanting to look, and feel good. For some it's wanting to be around for the kids, or maybe the doctor ordered us too.

Obesity is the leading overarching cause of death in the U.S. and I dare say most of the Westernized world. All too often we fail to think about what we are doing to ourselves and our families. So do it for them as well as yourself.

If you need help, find a workout partner or get a fitness trainer. If you look online they aren't all that expensive and can help motivate and guide you to your health and fitness goals. Some even offer FREE online challenges.

The US has seen an enormous increase in the number of people considered obese by the medical community. In fact many call it an obesity epidemic. To combat this we find all sorts of pharmaceutical companies selling the "quick fix" pills, powders, and lotions that do nothing to actually help people take the fat off and keep it off.

Of course the same could be said of the diet industry as well. There are so many different diets going around now you could pick one a month and in a years time still have more to choose from. If you are looking for a reputable company which provides GREAT nutritional products, Watch the video below.



To learn about the many ways you can purchase AdvoCare Products, CLICK HERE

What is truely needed are some sensible proven weight loss tips that people can implement no matter what their present physical condition is. That said let's dive right in.

#1  Drink more water. All too often Americans are borderline dehydrated and so their bodies are working on the water starvation reflex and not flushing the toxins and junk out.

#2  Eat more often. I bet you thought I was going to say eat less. While it is true that to lose weight you need to eat less calories than you expend...you need to eat more often to get the metabolic furnace stoked up and burning right. Get it out of starvation mode. So start the day off with breakfast. Even an instant breakfast drink and a piece of fruit as we head out the door in the morning.

#3  Move more. Depending on your physical condition you need to be moving more. Use the stairs rather than the elevator, park farther out from the office or the store, go for a walk around the block, go dancing, play with your kids. Make it fun. Running is not the only way to burn more calories.

#4  Finally, determine  your "Why". Decide why you want to discard fat. Make your reason big enough to motivate you through the slumps that invariably happen.

Personally my reason was to be able to live to see my grandkids graduate college. My youngest kids are 3 and 12 now. Besides I wanted to get out and play with them without being out of breath all the time.

Are You A Starter Or A Finisher?


The problem for the non-finisher.
People who don't finish never learn to fight. They never learn to stick it out. They never learn to overcome challenges. Most of all, they never learn what they are capable of.
They never give themselves a chance to prove to themselves that they can overcome odds and that they can rise above it all. So they never develop the grit, the perseverance, and the self-confidence to know they can take tough situations and make them better.
They don’t do everything that can be done to fix the problems they are facing.Instead they decide not finishing is their best option.
They give up on their dream. They give up on their teams.
It’s one thing to leave, or quit something when you’ve done everything in your power to change it and it still doesn’t work out, or to leave someone when they aren’t willing to work with you to create a better future.
But it’s completely different to just give up on something because it is hard. Today is your day, to become a finisher. If you really want to overcome your weight loss obstacle, pledge to become a finisher today, and take your first step toward achieving your weight loss goals.
Are you lacking in energy, or need vitamins, and supplements to assist you during your journey? if so, click www.todayiztheday.com NOW!

The Amazing Health Qualities Of Green Tea


The Chinese have known about Green tea as a powerful medication for at least 4000 years. According to legend, tea was discovered by a Chinese emperor called Shen Nung. Some tea leaves accidentally fell into boiling water, and he tried it and found it invigorating.

Green tea became part of the Chinese diet and many important health benefits were attributed to it. Now recent medical studies in both Asia and the west are providing a scientific basis for the claim that drinking green tea has very significant health benefits.

Green tea, like black tea is made from the leaves of the plant Camellia sinensis. The difference between the three main types of tea is the way that they are produced. Green tea is unfermented tea meaning that the leaves used for green tea are steamed soon after been plucked in order to prevent the oxidation of the leaves. In this way the leaves remain green and the active substances within the leaves retain their qualities.

Black teas on the other hand are made from fermented leaves and as a result have less nutritional and enzyme content as the green tea. Thus green and black teas have different chemical properties.

Modern science has in recent times been able to demonstrate that green tea is beneficial to one's health and this is mainly due to the fact that tea contains high levels of antioxidants called polyphenols or flavonoids. The antioxidant activity of tea has been compared to that of fruit and vegetables in a number of studies.

One study concluded that consuming three cups of tea a day produced a similar amount of antioxidants as eating six apples. Antioxidants help your body fight against free radicals which cause damage to cells and tissues in your body.

While all tea is healthy to drink, it is green tea that contains the highest level of flavonoids. Recent medical studies suggest green tea to be beneficial in many areas including the following:

-Digestive and respiratory health.

-Lowers cholesterol levels

-Boosts your immune system

-Reduces high blood pressure

-Arthritis - anti-inflammatory effect.

-Oral hygiene - due to antibacterial properties.

-Skin conditions such as acne

-Lowers blood sugar

Weight loss is another area that is attracting huge attention. Recently published research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that an extract from green tea may speed up fat oxidation.

A study was conducted of ten healthy men over a period of 6 weeks. It was discovered that those men who were given green tea extract burned more calories per day than those who were not given the extract. Much more research needs to be conducted in this area but the signs are certainly very encouraging.

Have you had your cup today?

Today You Ate Something That Might Be Killing You


The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) dietary guidelines has identified sugar as a part of our diet we should limit, prompted by an overwhelmingly amount of evidence that proves high-sugar foods, such as sports drinks, cookies and soft drinks, not only lead to weight gain, but they often replace the foods that really need to be eaten each day to survive and thrive.

                                                          Order REHYDRATE Here

If you eat a healthy diet and meet your nutritional needs on most days, you can still enjoy guilty pleasures like a sweet dessert or an occasional sugary soda. But, keep in mind, that no matter what form of sugar you eat - from Gummi Bears to Wheaties - carbohydrates (sugars) contain 4 calories per gram, they break down to simple sugars during digestion (except for fiber which is indigestible) and are either used for immediate energy, or stored as fat!

While you need sugars in your body to keep it running, you should pick sugars that come in the form of nutrient-rich starches like whole grains. You should also eat plenty of vegetables - which do contain sugars, but do contain an abundance of valuable vitamins, minerals, and disease-fighting chemicals.

The kind of sugar that you should stay away from is added sugar (the sweeteners that are dumped into foods by manufacturers). Added sugar is causing increasing concern because consumption of this diet-buster has risen more than 30 percent in the last two decades, with Americans now gobbling up a whopping 64 pounds of this fattening substance each year!

According to the USDA, 20 percent or more of the daily calories for nearly one-quarter of adult women come from sugar, making it the culprit of weight- gain and diet disasters nationwide, not to mention that fact that it's part of the cause of diseases like breast cancer.

With this in mind, let's look at some ways we can shave calories from sneaky sugar sources. These include:

Eliminate all soft drinks and fruit-flavored beverages, which are considered one of the biggest sources of added sugar in the diet. Instead, regularly opt for water, seltzer flavored with lemon or lime, flavored waters, or AdvoCare Spark etc.

                                                          Order SPARK Here

Check food labels of packaged food with claims of low fat or fat free, as they have as much, and oftentimes even more sugar, than the full-fat version. Additional sugar is often used to replace the taste of fat, so when fat is decreased or eliminated, sugar is often substituted. Learn to spot this on food packages, and to avoid the contents!

Avoid all white flours, substituting whole grains that pack nutritional value. This means staying away from white pastas, breads, biscuits, cakes, cookies, etc.

Learn to spot sugar aliases. If dextrose, fructose, maltose, or malt syrup. If sucrose or corn syrup appears first or second in the ingredient list, the food is very high in sugar.

When eating out, order fresh fruit for dessert rather than that cake your friends are eating.
Pass up sweetened yogurts (they can contain as much as 7 teaspoons of added sugar). Instead, choose a no-sugar variety.

Buy breakfast cereals with no more than 8 grams of sugar per serving. Pair these practices with drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day, eating 3 small meals and 2 snacks each day, eating a diet high in vegetables, medium in protein and with the right fats added, then you're on your way to a new you!

And, don't forget to be active every day.

These are all key to enhancing your metabolism, changing your lifestyle, and improving your body, and, perhaps more importantly, a healthy, balanced diet with daily exercise will help keep you feeling good, will help you live longer, and will turn back your body's aging clock!

It Is Important To Be Fit


Everybody knows the importance to being fit. Your level of fitness is a major factor in your lifespan, and getting in shape should be a priority. There are plenty of celebrities, whether qualified or not, offering to sell you their latest fitness video or book, and more and more articles in newspapers and magazines about the cost of not having a daily workout; the impact on your health, the social effects of being unfit, and of course the fact that most fashionable clothes don't come in plus sizes.

Getting fit should be on your to-do list all year round, and not just a New Year resolution that does not make it past the first few days of January.

It is easy to start a fitness regime, and then run out of enthusiasm. With a busy work schedule, and an equally busy social life, it's a common enough occurrence that people drop out of exercising on the basis that they don't have enough time.

The most obvious answer to this, and something that most fitness instructors will suggest, is just to get out of bed a bit earlier, and use that time to exercise. Of course, to some this may seem like a nightmare, and not something to inspire them; night owls should look for something to do in the evening, perhaps a late workout session at the gym, or installing some home exercise equipment so that you can watch TV at the same time as working out.

Not everyone is suited to a traditional fitness regime of steps and dance. You might find it rewarding to try other methods to keep fit, such as martial arts. It is not important how you get fit: only the results matter. If you find that you enjoy fencing, for example, then that will extend your enthusiasm for your fitness regime. Doing something that you hate, or which you feel stupid doing, won't last very long.

Keep your enthusiasm up in other ways, by working out to your favorite tracks, or by keeping a log of how well you've done. You can work out with a friend and have a competition; or you can set yourself goals in your fitness regime, and reward yourself when you achieve them.

Fitness should be something that you work towards for all of your life, and a daily exercise routine will certainly help you achieve that goal. Even if your exercising consists of a short run everyday, and you never end up with a full six-pack, that does not matter. Fitness is not about getting the perfect body, it is about a general physical state where you feel more energetic, and you feel good about the way your body looks and works.

How Clean Are You On The Inside?


In today's age and world, being slim, shapely, possessing ripped abdominal muscles and toned arms seems to be the aim of a vast majority of the people you see spending tons of hours working out at gyms.

These same people spend loads of money on the new weight-loss pill or supplement guaranteed to make you eat less and increase your metabolism...' and in spite of whatever side effects the product may contain, the average Joe, still thinks this quick fix will be worth the risk.

In truth, some of these people have luck with these efforts, and yes they possess the ever so ripped and toned muscles we as a society admire so much. However, the fact that needs to be accepted and pondered upon thoroughly is: Whatever is not built on a proper foundation will eventually crumble!

Most fitness experts will tell you that bodybuilders atrophy will wear down prematurely sooner or later, because these muscles that were blown up with unnatural substances have a tendency to pretty much deflate. Moreover, ripped muscles and demonstrated feats of strength DO NOT depict proper and optimal health.

There is a saying that is known to every culture which goes like this: you are what you eat...What you eat plays arguably the most important role on your overall health and fitness, thus PROPER DIET should be the most important factor for any and every person seeking better health.

What then should one eat? In a nut-shell: yes as boring as it may sound- Fruits and Vegetables.
These substances possess the abilities to not only provide the necessary fuel needed for day to day activities, but play important and vital roles in the following:

1. Providing the alkaline reserves in the body for balancing chemical metabolism within.

2. Cleansing the digestive and excretory tract as they act as the much needed intestinal broom to sweep these 'pipes' (as you may call them) clean to function properly in their duties of nourishing and cleansing the body.

3. Keeping the body fit, trim and in shape WITHOUT the unwanted side effects of toxic and artificial substances such as pills and supplements. Sure, it is a great feeling to be able to see the awesome cuts in your abs and arms when you look in the mirror, but feeling good on the inside as well and knowing that you are thoroughly cleansed internally should be of just as much importance as getting ripped.

As I stated in one of my previous articles, a quick and sure-fire method of attaining internal cleanliness and the added bonus of healthy weight-loss will be to undergo a fast.

There are several methods of this tried and true method of healing and although it is covered to a degree in the free resources section of my website, you can always do some research on this radical; yet extremely effective method of internal purification and weight loss.

In conclusion, the cleaner you are on the inside and the freer you are of toxicity the quicker you can and will attain your goal of being in shape.

My recommendation for a reputable company which can help during your Weight Loss journey is AdvoCare. Not only am I an Independent Distributor, Im a user of the products as well.

Parents Beat The Back To School Anxiety!

Obey Kids
It's almost that time of the year, and like most parents my wife Joy, and I, along with the Obey kids experience our share of stress, and anxiety leading up to the first day of school.

This year, we are adding to our normal 1st of August routine of getting the kiddos adjusted to going to bed earlier, a parents and kiddos walk around the neighborhood family challenge.

During this challenge, we will allow ourselves to decompress from the stress of  shopping for the new school year, and the many changes that will accompany the 2019 school year. This will also allow, our kids to adjust as well as give us time to talk about what concerns them, with the upcoming year.

Parents, we must understand, not all kids adjust to going to a new school, being promoted to high school, or that dreaded first day of being dropped off on campus, and not knowing anyone.
Remember some kids may enjoy this type of change, while for others, it may only increase their anxiety levels.

To do this challenge, just commit to 30 minutes a day, with your kids walking the neighborhood, park, or other selected location beginning on the 1st of August, until school starts. The only requirement is to put away all electronics, except that which is needed to track the time.

This challenge is not about distance, its about getting your life centered, and reducing the anxiety which comes with the kids going back to school.

Here are a few topics we discuss with our kiddos, which we utilize during our challenge, and it has seem to work well for us.


  • Discuss the topic of new teachers - Will the kiddos like them
  • Lunch time - Will they sit alone, or will they have friends to eat with
  • New Friends - When their old friends have moved on to another school
  • School subject - Will the classes be harder


As parents, we have to always keep our emotions in check, our kids feed off our emotions. If you are nervous about the upcoming school year, your kiddos will pick up on your anxiety as well. We have to be there for them, both physically, and emotionally. Be sure to show confidence, and affection while keeping your energy level up.

So there you have it, and nothing to it but to do it starting August 1st 2018, thru the start of school.

To keep our energy level up, we utilize AdvoCare Spark, and yes although we are independent distributors, you are in no way obligated to buy from us. AdvoCare En Espanol

                                                                      en español

Why I Take AdvoCare MNS 3


Let me start by saying this first....most people do not eat a healthy balanced diet to provide them with all of the vitamins their bodies require and this has led to more and more people taking a  Multi vitamin supplement to supplement what they are deficient in. Multi Vitamins are available in a number of different forms, including tablets, gel capsules and even liquids.

One of the most obvious benefits to taking a multi vitamin supplement is the convenience. It is much easier for a person to take one dose of a multi vitamin supplement which contains all of the body's needed vitamins compared to taking each one individually. This is especially true in the case of small  children as it can be difficult for them to take a large number of vitamin supplements , whereas one dose of a multi vitamin supplement is far easier on the child, as well as the parent.

However, for most, a liquid multi vitamin supplement is the most suitable form for children, but this form can also benefit anyone who has difficulty swallowing, or taking supplements in traditional tablet form.

The increase in the availability of multi vitamin supplements has led to a great variety in the brands and also the actual content of the multi vitamin supplements. The names of some of the nutrients in these multi vitamin supplements can be a little bewildering and many people simply do not know which ones they require.

To make the decision simpler there are now a number of multi vitamin supplements created for specific people. For example, there are multi vitamin supplements that are designed for children. These multi vitamin supplements contain the specific nutrients that children need for them to grow and develop properly.

Pregnant women have unique nutrient requirements to ensure that their baby receives the necessary nutrients and there are multi vitamin supplements prepared just for pregnant women. As we get older we also have different nutrient requirements and multi vitamin supplements for the elderly are a popular product as well.

It is important to consider the contents of any multi vitamin supplement before consuming too many. There are some vitamins that can be toxic if too much is absorbed and this can occur more easily with multi vitamin supplements as some of the content may be overlooked.

The labelling of the actual percentage of the recommended daily allowance for each vitamin in a multi vitamin supplement should be clearly labelled and must be assessed before a person takes them.

Why I take AdvoCare MNS 3

I personally utilize a Multinutrient Dietary Supplement called MNS 3, which is made by AdvoCare.

MNS 3 is one of their most comprehensive multinutrient dietary supplement systems, and focuses on energy, wellness and appetite control.*  Not only will you benefit from appetite control and enhanced energy but it also may provide you with one, or more of the following below:


  • Provides a comprehensive system for general health and weight management*
  • Supports advanced core nutrition, energy and wellness*
  • Offers excellent nutritional support for bones and connective tissue*
* These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. This information is being provided by an Independent AdvoCare Distributor, and is for information purposes only. Their opinions do not reflect those of AdvoCare, or any employee, thereof. 

Always seek professional medical advice before taking any multi vitamin supplement if there is any doubt as to the benefits of the contents.

What Is AdvoCare Rehydrate


Rehydrate helps you replace all of your minerals and electrolytes lost through sweat, while supporting recovery after a workout, by utilizing vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, sustamine and a blend of important electrolytes.

Rehydrate provides your body with the nutrients to help maintain proper metabolism, while delaying the onset of fatigue. Rehydrate also, hydrates your body by re-establishing your electrolyte balance. 

Did You Know?

Rehydrate has a 1:1 ratio of sodium and potassium, two of the most vital electrolytes lost when we sweat. Overall, Rehydrate includes antioxidants (vitamins A and C), carbohydrates, electrolytes, sustamine and other nutrients that effectively promote optimal hydration and recovery. 

So whether you are working out, or climbing the Mayan ruins in Central America, Rehydrate should be the drink of choice, when looking to replace those lost electrolytes!

The Dirty Truth On How To Get Ripped!

Summer is HERE, and the time has come to kick back and relax under the sun. It's time for the beach days, barbecues, pool parties, and for any serious gym goer these activities also mean one thing: it's time for the shirts to come off and to showcase that rock-solid physique they've been working on all year. No one wants to be walking around with a soft, smooth and flabby body, and for the next month or two, all of those serious lifters will be shifting into get ripped mode baby!

For many of us we want to know how do they usually go about this?

ANSWER: They lighten up the weights and perform higher reps. 

This has always been a widely accepted method of cutting down and if you ask most trainers in the gym they will tell you that heavy weights bulk up the muscle and lighter weights define the muscles.

Do you want to know the reality behind the light weight and high reps method of obtaining a ripped and defined physique?

It is completely, totally and utterly DEAD WRONG.

It couldn't be farther from the truth. In fact, there is no logical basis for this way of training whatsoever, and whoever dreamt up this downright ridiculous way of thinking has caused the vast majority of lifters to waste their time and impede their progress in the gym.

Let me clear this up once and for all: you CANNOT spot reduce. In other words, it is physically impossible to target fat loss from a specific area on your body. Performing bench presses with light resistance and high repetitions will not magically burn fat off of your chest or cause it to appear harder and more defined.

Every single time you wrap your hands around a barbell, dumbbell or cable, your goal is to stimulate as much muscle growth as you possibly can. There are no special, secret weightlifting exercises that will define your muscles or cause them to become more ripped.

Training with weights builds muscle mass, end of story!

So how exactly do you define a muscle?

The only way to define a muscle is by lowering your body fat level in order to make your muscles more visible. Body fat reduction can be achieved in two ways:

1) Modify your diet.

You should lower your overall caloric intake to around 15x your bodyweight and focus on consuming smaller meals more frequently throughout the day. This will keep your metabolism naturally raised at all times and will keep your body in a constant fat burning state. Limit your intake of saturated fats and simple sugars, and focus instead on consuming lean sources of protein and low glycemic carbohydrates. It is also very important to keep your water intake high at a level of around 0.6 ounces per pound of bodyweight.

2) Perform proper cardio workouts.

Let go of the traditional method of moderate intensity cardio in 30-45 minute durations. If you want to maximize your body fat burning capacity and also minimize the muscle loss that inevitably accompanies a fat burning cycle, focus on shorter cardio workouts performed at a high level of intensity. These types of workouts will shoot your resting metabolism through the roof and will allow you to burn maximum amounts of fat even when you are at rest. I recommend 3-5 high intensity cardio sessions per week, spaced at least 8 hours away from your weight workouts.

That's all there is to it, folks. Take the notion of light weight and higher reps and throw it right out the window, down the street and around the corner. Following this misguided method will only cause you to lose muscle mass and strength, and will not assist you in burning fat or defining your physique.

All you need to do to mold those rock-solid muscles for the summer time is this:

1) Train with heavy weights and low repetitions to build maximum muscle mass.

2) Modify your diet and implement cardio workouts to eliminate body fat and create visibly harder and more defined muscles.

End of story.

I'll see you at the beach!

Reduce Your Cortisol To Lose Weight


It is now known that stress can actually cause you to stop losing weight especially around your middle section.  Stress can cause your body to secrete high levels of a hormone known as cortisol into your bloodstream, because of your body's "flight or fight" response to stress.  Stress can be either psychological (mental and emotional) or physical.

Cortisol is secreted by the adrenal glands and is actually important for the regulation of blood pressure, the immune system and many other functions.  Cortisol can be good in small amounts but high levels can lead to an increase of abdominal fat, which can lead to heart attacks, strokes and can also increase your bad cholesterol levels and decrease your good cholesterol levels.

High levels of cortisol may also decrease your bone density, leading to osteoporosis and loss of muscle tissue, which will also slow down your metabolic rate, and increase your blood pressure along with giving you other problems.

Each of us reacts differently to stress; some of us will produce more cortisol, due to a particular stress while others will produce less.  It has been found that those of you that produce more cortisol will actually eat more food as well, in particular carbohydrates.

To combat producing too much cortisol, learn ways to relax and change your lifestyle. A good way to do this is through relaxation, which can be achieved in a number of ways either by exercising, mediation, yoga or breathing.

One of the easiest and simplest ways is breathing.  This is done by gently breathing in through the nose, while expanding your abdomen and then gently expelling the air through your nose, while pulling in your abdomen at the same time. After several breaths in and out you should start to feel yourself relax.  You need to practice doing this exercise a few minutes a day to start with, while building up to five minutes in the end.  You can also practice this when you are feeling stressed or when things are getting the best of you.  Just a few minutes can slow your body down and help it to feel relax.

Life style changes can be like changing your eating habits for a healthier diet, getting enough sleep, or even organizing your time more efficiently so that you do not feel so stressed.  Also looking after your body will help your body to cope with stresses that you come across during your day.

So if you are exercising frequently and eating properly but still not losing any weight especially from around the middle then maybe you are suffering from high levels of cortisol caused by stress.  If this is the case, try looking at ways to solve the problem and hopefully you will see a difference in your weight and around your middle.

How One Mom Got Her Beach Body Back With 1st N Weight Loss!

Joy Obey - Guest Blogger
I love reading everyone’s success stories of how they started with AdvoCare, whether as a customer or a distributor.
Dealing with the weight left behind from having four adorable kiddos, and the most recent being born in 2014, I knew deep inside I wanted my body back, but just did not have the time or motivation. 
My husband was an AdvoCare  distributor at the time, and invited me to one of his challenge groups, and to try the products. After several months,  I finally gave in to his persistence. 
My husband had bought AdvoCare some years ago, and signed up as a distributor for the 20% discount… and to learn more about maybe starting a business in the future.
Yes. getting back into a routine was TOUGH I mean real TOUGH. I felt like I was going to die every challenge. I was so out of shape. I started and stopped. Then I started again and…. again.
Bike Cardio
The next time around I had more than good intentions. I had a solid plan, a deadline, and consistency (even though I mixed in body pump  and the treadmill with no guilt) and this time taking my AdvoCare products as instructed (which is key to achieving good results with AdvoCare products)…I had good results!
This time my husband was right! AdvoCare was legit! I told everyone and their mama about AdvoCare and how it worked well for me during my weight loss journey to get back my beach body. 
I started to research a little bit on my own about the AdvoCare products, and its business opportunity to learn why my husband was head over heels about this company, and realized that AdvoCare was a really amazing company to be a part of. They’re big into family, helping others, and personal development which is right up my alley. 
Since the AdvoCare products helped me get such great results after baby #4, I constantly order AdvoCare Slim, and AdvoCare Fiber to help control my hunger,  and they don'’t disappoint. 
I have been able to fit in my 60 minute daily workouts around being a middle school counselor, a mom of four kids, with the youngest 3 years old, and helping my husband run his life coaching / blogging, and AdvoCare business.
I've recently made some major changes in life, including building a vacation home in Belize, Central America. Another big change is that I am now working beside my husband, with our Advocare business. 
New Vacation Home - Rancho Dolores, Belize -CA
My husband was big on me  finding my “why”….meaning your deep reason for doing what you’re doing. Being able to spend that extra quality time with my four kids, and create those special memories are important to me, being their primary caregiver on a day to day basis is OUR why. 
Being healthy for them so we can truly be there for them, intentionally and fully, each and every day is OUR why. 
Now, here I am, with a renewed sense of purpose and excitement about teaming with my husband in business and the personal physical transformation I’m embarking on, and more importantly about the opportunity to help others. 
This opportunity allows me to help people live healthier, happier lives, and gives me a sense of fulfillment.
Having built our business, on faith, with a Christian foundation of integrity, and caring I am excited to share with people not just about AdvoCare products, but the business opportunity that has proven to be so life changing for so many individuals.
