What Supplements should You take?

Whenever someone embarks on a fitness journey, its is human nature to want to go all in. Meaning you want to buy every fruit and vegetable in the grocery store, new gym clothes and accessories and most importantly supplements. My clients are always asking me what is the best supplement that they can get for the  best results. The fitness industry has led us all to believe that without these supplements we will never get the results that we want.

Tenergy Vitalis: Body Fat Scale

You are not alone. Many of my clients come to me with some sort of trauma they’ve had with the weight scale. There is a 50/50 chance that they NEVER use that dreaded object. Some of them hide it away in the bathroom closet collecting dust and occasionally let it catch some light when they want to weigh luggage to prevent that $50 “overweight” fee.

Pumpkin Matcha Latte

Coffee has been my addiction but I do know that it isn’t that great for you. So I have tried to like green tea because of the many health benefits it has. That was a fail.

I gave up on my attempts of trying to get into the “tea” world and came to terms with the fact that my love for coffee will just have to do.

So today, we’re going to look at a bunch of healthy and clean snacks you pick up straight from the shelves of your local grocery store or even gas station.

Alternative to Soda

Even though it is nice to enjoy a cold, refreshing soda from time to time, it is never very good for your health. It can cause weight gain, slow down your metabolism, dehydrates the body and even causes plaque in the teeth. Don't even get me started on all the chemicals. This is what I've been trying to incorporate as an alternative to soda when I get that craving for a it, and would like to share it here with you all today.
