4 Tips Getting Back To The Healthy You

Oh sure we say it, think it, do we accomplish it? 

It’s possible to getting back to the healthy you!

On a personal note, I have struggled with weight loss since I was 12. The ups and downs, the tons of pills, diets, the shakes and gym memberships all promising me to have that skinny, model look. 

This simply showed me that fad diets and eating plans never worked. Over the years I’ve learned more about the balance of eating, exercising and living a more healthy lifestyle.


Let me share these 4 tips to getting back to the healthy you. And how you can apply them to your routine :
(in no way am I a diet or health professional, I’m just sharing from my own personal experiences.)

#1 – Eat Healthy

The first step to becoming healthy revolves around food. I use to be a ‘fast food’ junkie!  I’ll admit I still grab something quick without thinking, but certainly have curbed that for a while now.  In today’s world it’s all about instant gratification.  Well that food, those high calories and all the junk that is in fast food, had to be the first off my list!

To lose weight and maintain a healthy, shapely body, you really need to learn why and how eating healthier is key.  Recently, I discovered a 14 year old company and their health and wealth programs.  (I introduced Orenda International in my previous post)  has these amazing vegan shakes that work well with their unique weight loss plan. The more of these shakes you make and drink, following first their 10 day detox plan, which incorporates healthy eating education, videos and exercise, and then the 30 day plan, you soon see how well it can help you get on the path to start eating right and making healthy choices from the start!  You will be able to discover the real life answer to living and looking healthy.

#2 – Take Action

Can you relate to thissit down, take a moment, and think. Have you ever had this revealing experience where one day you look at yourself in the mirror and you simply cannot recognize the person looking back at you? Chances are high that you have done this before, am I right? 

Maybe it was in the evening just before you went out with the girls or on a date with your significant other.  Or it was in the morning right before you stepped into the shower. Additionally, even though you had looked at yourself thousands of times before, that one moment in time was frozen and you just stopped and stared at the reflection.

You were so surprised by how you had let yourself go that you just squinted your eyes in disbelief. You thought, “is this really how I look? Oh my God! How did I get here? I used to be so slim, so lean, and so fit. Goodness!”

All of a sudden, you realized that you no longer wanted to look like that. The extra pounds added unnecessary strain on your frame. (lol!) You also looked years older than your actual age. 

Perhaps you have been packing on that extra weight for so long that you have started forgetting what it feels like to be slim and fit. At that very moment, you decided there and then that you would have to do something to change your looks. The only solution – and you know what it is – is to take action. Start eating right, exercise, and keep away from anything that will get you looking that bad ever again.Overweight Man Admiring Himself In A Mirror


#3 – Getting Back

Almost every overweight person has had this kind of experience, and this is from my own personal experience as well, or something similar at the very least. You looked at your reflection and could no longer identify yourself. You asked yourself how you got there and decided that enough was enough. 

With this resolution, the natural next step is to try and get back to the healthy you – who would jump, and skip, and hop, and run, and never feel like they had just carried two sofas up the steps. 

So, how will you get back to the healthy you? Deep down you know that the best version of your body exists. At least you have realized that you must take action if you are ever going to get back in shape, eating right and being fit like you were before, or at least close to it!


#4 – Compare and Contrast

Look for a photo of yourself… where you looked absolutely stunning or for guys, when you were buff! Maybe it is a photo of your wedding day looking all fabulous, hopeful, healthy and slim. On the other hand, it might be in your old college football uniform holding your helmet and smiling with your peers. It might also be one of you standing right outside your first home, or the shots you took a couple of weeks into your new career where the world was literally at your feet and you know that there was no limit to how far you could rise.

Whatever the case, just dig around for that photo and decide that you are going back to that old, healthy you. The great thing about finding such a photo and setting such a goal is that it is not based on some unrealistic, photoshopped and airbrushed ideal that you just saw on Instagram. It is you. Simply you. 

You have been there before and you can go back there again. If you feel like you are no longer the body you used to be, the first step to correcting the situation is using your old photo to motivate yourself.


At the end of the day, with the right help, mindset, and industry, you should be able to uncover your old self. Sure, you might look a bit older. However, there is no denying the fact that you will go back to a slimmer, healthier, fitter, and better looking version. You can do it. Just get started today and get back to the healthy you!

Since I started on the Orenda weight loss tastes so good program, I have lost 4 pounds. The amazing thing about this is that I was able to accomplish this remarkable feat in just 5 days while following the Clean, Burn and Shape 10 day cleanse program.  I haven’t been able to lose weight or inches for almost 5 years now.  I chalked it up to getting older, not exercising enough and not choosing the right foods to eat.  But soon I learned there was something more to this weight loss thing.

This program comes with a number of recipes that I have come to absolutely adore. So I created my own Chocolate Shape Shake!  It’s vegan, tastes delicious and you can whip it up in no time:

The Big Fast Food Myth No One Talks About

If you have been struggling with your weight, like I have, there are a number of fast food myths you need to know and use to lose weight.

Not many people talk about this or worse, not many people know how fast food is affecting our bodies and lifestyle.

You see it everywhere.  In your grocery stores, online, magazines every form of advertising that boasts about ‘low fat’, ‘no sugar’, ‘low carb’…’healthy’ food.  Most companies today market and promote so called low-calorie fast foods to trick you into eating their products. Did you know that most of these foods are actually riddled with junk and gunk? This is one reason why so many Americans are more unhealthy and heavier than ever before.

The Fast Food Myth 

If you are worried that you packed on more pounds from your holiday or weekend feasts and treats, there is a new type of evil restaurant that seems to be beckoning people over to the light side. Most of these food chains are making a splash dishing out plant based meals quickly, empathizing healthy eating and holding prices down.


Whereas they are dubbed ‘healthy fast food’ restaurants, we all need to take a step back to see whether they are really trying to solve the crises of global warming, factory farming and obesity. 


Sounds too good to be true? Well, that’s because it is. Healthy food store chains these days cannot match fast food restaurants in terms of convenience, pricing or speed. Even worse, they are casting health halos over consumers, causing them to consume foods that are as unhealthy as their fast food partners in crime. 


The Problem

The main problem with these so called low calorie fast foods is that whole fresh foods are not suited for fast food. Most fruit and fresh vegetables are delivery mechanisms for water, fiber and nutrients. They are low in protein, fat and calories, so you need to eat a lot of them to fill up.


Seeing as how fresh foods tend to be more wasteful, expensive and laborious to ship, store and prepare than simply slapping frozen burgers and fries on the grill, it follows that we are all being led down the route to obesity.

What Can You Do? 

Start consuming the healthy choice of produce to get satisfied. Make it part of your daily diet to consume 4-5 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables.


While fast food – including the ‘low calorie’ types is fast to make, buy, and eat, change the mindset to start choosing healthier options.  Take the time to make fresh bowls of salad and sit down, taking the time to eat and enjoy them.


Once you start making healthier eating choices, you will notice fresh food choices like your local Farmer’s Market, natural food stores and other options that provide organically grown vegetables and fruits to start using in your daily diet.  We are in a hurry up world in which is causing many of us to eat on the run.  Convenience is what we want but also a healthy way of living is necessary to keep us from falling into ongoing health issues or problems. 


The thing you need to know, therefore, is that there is nothing like healthy foods even though they are never cheap and require tons of time to prepare.  It will keep you away from the fast good myth of thinking that even those fast food chains ‘healthy options’ are best.  When in the long run the food is riddled with sugar, fat and salt, which is the plan to keep you coming back!

Eat Healthy Graphic

So don’t be fooled by the big fast food myth.  Instead start reading labels, packages and other nutrition information that all fast food chains are now supposed to produce and make available for consumers.   

Know what food you are preparing for you and your family.  Healthier food choices will keep you away from the fast food cycle and into a much healthier lifestyle.  Couple that with daily exercise and plenty of water will keep you healthy, wealthy and happy!
