A Healthy You Makes Way for Great Music. Take Care of Yourself. 

The 30 day challenge. Sick and tired of being overweight, sick and tired? Want to feel better, become healthy, and reverse disease? ... Avoid the "GOADS" and get off the "SAD" (Standard American Diet). You can greatly improve your health and reverse many diseases, all while losing weight. AVOID: the G.O.A.D.S. (All GOADS cause inflammation. Inflammation contributes to almost all chronic diseases). GOADS are: G. - GRAINS - and GLUTEN. O. - OIL. - All vegetable oils. A. - ALL- man-made, processed, packaged, refined, fake foods. (IF it's packaged, in a box, etc; it's usually refined. There are some exceptions - cold caught Salmon, canned chicken breast fresh frozen vegetables, and a few others, read the label). If there are any man-made artificial ingredients or additives, DON'T EAT IT! Including breakfast cereals, breads, crackers, potato chips, packaged foods, all fast foods, etc.. D. - DAIRY milk. Cut out all dairy milk. Substitute almond milk and other nut milks. S. - SUGAR. Never intentionally eat anything with sugar in it. Do: Use only 100 percent Cold Pressed Virgin Olive Oil, Butter, or Coconut Oil - (butter and cheeses are optional). Eat only certified organic vegetables, free range, and grass fed meats whenever possible. Do the best you can if you don't have access to organic. As stated above, cheese and butter are optional. Some people choose to eliminate all dairy products. Eat vegetables at every meal. Eat a moderate amount of fruit. NEVER eat margarine. Margarine is toxic to your body! NEVER eat sugar. Sugar has been shown to be the number one inflammatory, and has been shown to have a direct link to cancer and inflammation. Inflammation is present in all chronic disease. If you want to lose weight rapidly, limit your carb intake to 20 grams or fewer per day. Try this lifestyle for 30 days, and you won't believe the difference in how you look and feel! I live this lifestyle. I lost 37 pounds, I feel great. I do not miss the SAD way of eating. Take the 30 day challenge. Try doing this for 30 days. You will be glad you did.

The Battle: Drug and Alcohol Addiction. 

Watching someone you love, that has fought so hard to beat addiction, throw everything away and sink back onto a life that will most likely lead to jail or death, is one of the hardest things you will ever do. You want to help them back to a clean and sober life but you realize by doing this, as you have so many times before, will now just be enabling them because it will show them that you will always be there to bail them out. You want to grab and shake them and say "What are you doing" but at some point you realize that it wouldn't make a difference. So you sit back and watch the tragedy unfold, as if you are watching a movie. Feeling helpless to stop it, feeling like you haven't done enough to help, even though you know only the addict can help themselves. Loving a drug addict or an active alcoholic is the hardest thing you will ever have to go through. I have friends and family who have gone through this battle. Battling a drug and/or an alcohol addiction is a beast for the person addicted and the ones who love them. So l am asking you to stand with me in prayer for every family member and friend who has lost their battle with drugs and alcohol and those who continue to conquer it! Put this on your page for one hour if you know someone who has or had an addiction. Many will be hesitant to copy and paste this. Some of you won't paste this but I think I know the ones who will. And thanks in advance!

Paleo vs Keto. 

Take care of yourself, take care of your music. I thought I would post this to also share with others. I do Paleo. Why do I do Paleo? Paleo is like Keto but better for you. I live by the following... Limit carb intake to 20 - 40 grams daily. 20g will cause rapid weight loss 40g for weight maintenance. Avoid the G.O.A.D.S. - Grains/gluten. Oils (all vegetable oils). ALL man-made, fake, refined, boxed, packaged, etc foods. Dairy milk (cheeses and butter are optional). SUGAR (Sugar IS addictive and the biggest source of inflammation). Inflammation is present in all chronic disease. I DO eat cheese and butter. I use Pure 100 percent Virgin Olive oil and/or coconut oil. Always choose organic everything when possible. I drink half my body weight in ounces of water daily. (Bottled, purified, stream - NEVER TAP)... I have lost 37lbs and kept it off. I have never felt better. I call this "Paleo Perfect". Eat great delicious home made meals and never gain weight again. Eat liberal amounts of fruit, and vegetables, organic when possible, limit your sugar intake from fruits. Rid your body of inflammation. Eating the way our ancestors ate. Prevention is the best medicine. โ˜บ I hope this helps someone.

Drugs and Alcohol Addiction. 

TRUTH, Drugs are a nasty habit, they not only destroy the person using but they also destroy all the ones around them that love them. Every pill taken, every meth/crack pipe smoked, every needle put in a vein, every line cut, slowly kills them and their families!!!! Battling a drug and alcohol addiction is a beast for the person addicted and the ones they love. So I am asking you to stand with me in support for every family member and friend who has lost their battle with drugs and alcohol and those who Continue to battle with it or Conquered it. ๐Ÿ™ Put this on your page for one hour if you or someone you know HAS or HAD an addiction. Many will be hesitant to copy and paste this, will you?.....๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ’™
