Q: I just finished your ebook, the Body Fuel System, and it looks like it’s getting great reviews! How did you happen to write it, and what has been the response so far?
I began my food journey about three years ago. It started with a blurb about clean eating in a work-out video. That lead me to the video Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead followed by Food Matters. I have continued to educate myself since. I don’t claim to be an expert but I can say my health is good, I feel great and I have had lab work done to back up what I already knew, changing what I put into by body would change my health.
Food Matters started as a movie and has grown by leaps in bounds! The movie is inspirational and takes a real look at why what you put into your body matters. March 20-31 is the launch party for the new site where you will have access to recipes, documentations, and discounts on some of the leading supplements and cool kitchen tools that making living a healthy life easier.

First let me say I am not a doctor and my sharing this video and story are not meant as medical advise. I am sharing it because I know from experience that traditional cardiologist often only treat the symptoms and view surgery and pills as the only way to go.
I have a left bundle branch block. LBB is not curable but it is treatable, usually with medication and then as it progresses/ you age a pacemaker. I have no underlining heart disease but heart simply does not function the way it should. I reluctantly tried medication only to have the side-effects be more dangerous than the LBBB. I was weaned off the medication and began to take my heart health into my own hands even further.
I made a lot of changes to my lifestyle that included leaving a stressful job, increasing my water intake, wearing a heart monitor when I work-out and becoming even more watchful of what I eat. I have been back to my cardiologist twice since conditioning the medication and both times have been given the thumbs up to keep doing what I am doing. My main goal is to avoid or at least drastically distance myself from a pacemaker. I guess you never want to think about heart surgery but at 41, I am not ready.
Again, I am not saying “ditch your doctor”, I still see mine what I am saying is make sure you do your own research. Your body has a built in healing mechanism, get to know it!
The real you is sexy, the real you is beautiful and the real you is worthy of being seen and loved! Do you know that? Do you believe that? I know it can be hard to accept in today’s society when you never know if the media you are looking at is real or photo shopped. In a society that sets unattainable standards for us to reach but none the less it is true, you are beautiful. Your beauty goes far beyond what people see, It Starts On The Inside!
When I started this blog it was to encourage people to see their true beauty, to realize that we are far more than our outward appearance and that by taking care of our mind, body and soul we will see real change and growth. With that in mind you can understand why I was so excited when I saw Aerie’s new campaign. Aerie a lingerie company, where I love to shop, recently released a new ad campaign featuring all completely real, totally unairbrushed models in an effort to challenge unrealistic supermodel standards for young women.
You’ve got to hand it to the brand for bucking the trend and honoring real beauty instead of taking a giant eraser to any itty bitty imperfection. They are proving what we have known all along, imperfections are part of life and what help make us the beautiful women we are.
