The company that provides you Skinny Fiber is determined to make this an extra special holiday season for your loved ones and you by introducing 3 new products to help with your weight loss, health and wellness needs:

I am super excited to share with you all of the information on the very first of these INCREDIBLE new products called SKINNY BODY MAX ... "The next generation of Healthy Weight Loss!" CHECK OUT THE DETAILS BELOW!

Skinny Body Max - New Weight Loss Product

What could be better than the award winning Skinny Fiber? How about the new revolutionary 2.0 formula called SKINNY BODY MAX? This sister product includes some of the very same effective ingredients as in Skinny Fiber (such as digestive enzymes and healthy fiber), but Skinny Body max also features the powerful additions of prebiotics, probiotics, raspberry ketones, garcinia cambogia and more (full ingredients list below).

* Currently accepting orders now for delivery starting December 1, 2015.


Some of the ingredients in Skinny Body Max are the same as in Skinny Fiber (Glucomannan, Caralluma and Digestive Enzymes) include:

Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber also called "Natures Skinny Sponge", It has recently gained considerable attention as an effective weight-loss supplement. Glucomannan expands in your stomach to help you feel full faster and therefore eat less. This explains the effects of glucomannan on obesity http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6096282

- a widely growing plant in India is associated with appetite suppression

- a prebiotic fiber that has been proven to support weight management and help the body absorb more calcium for stronger bones. Benefits of Fiber & Prebiotics explained here:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3705355/

- are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy. The probiotic in Skinny Body Max is Lactobacillus Plantarum (L. Plantarum) prevents harmful bacteria from attaching to the mucosal lining. It aids in digestion, retaining vitamins and minerals, so the bad bacteria are pushed out the body.

- Clinically proven to increase the burning of fat cells in the body
- Research Raspberry Ketones: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15862604

- One of the most powerful herbs in the world, to help burn fat and curb cravings

- Helps block your body's ability to make new fat

- Beyond supporting digestion, Digestive Enzymes can play a major role in weight management. Enzymes are responsible for every single chemical reaction in every single cell of your body.

Want More Appetite Control, Fat Blocking & Fast Weight Loss?

If you love Skinny Fiber but feel as though you need more fat loss, energy and help to lose weight faster, then maybe Skinny Body Max is worth a try for the additional weight loss support. If you are interested in trying this new weight loss product by the makers of Skinny Fiber, the company is accepting pre orders today for delivery at the beginning of December.

Collard Green Wrap Recipe | Meal Ideas & Healthy Food

Here's a quick recipe I posted in our Weight Loss Support Online group last week. I am posting it in case you missed it and want to Bookmark or Favorite this page to save the idea. Before we get into the details, I want to share some of the health benefits of collard greens, as well as why you should consider using the leaves for wraps in addition to whichever other types of greens you like to use (lettuce wraps, kale wraps, cabbage wraps, etc).

Health Benefits of Collard Greens & How To Eat

Collard Greens are good sources of vitamin C, vitamin K and soluble fiber. They contain nutrients with potent anticancer properties, such as diindolylmethane and sulforaphane. Collard greens are low in calories; they have about 46 calories per 1/2 pound cooked collards and about 11 to 30 calories per raw leaf. Researchers at the University of California at Berkeley confirm that vegetables like collard greens help regulate immune system with potent antiviral, antibacterial and anticancer activity.

NOTE: Eat in moderation if you take blood thinner medicine. *

They are also an awesome source of Vitamin A and are very filling / satisfying food.

Different ways to eat collard greens ...

It used to be that we thought it was best to eat collard greens boiled for a couple of hours with smoked meat bone (ham hocks, smoked turkey, etc) with onions, garlic, a little vinegar (to soften) and spices. They are absolutely delicious this way and especially when mixed with other greens like kale, mustard greens dandelion greens and / or even swiss chard or beet greens. We now know that it is just as delicious and can be even healthier to saute collard greens in a little bit of healthy oil w/ or without onions and garlic. You can also eat the green vegetable as part of salads or wraps if you like the taste of raw collard greens. * The key is in making cure to clean the leaves well (for any leaf veggie) regardless of eating them cooked or raw.

Collard Green Wrap Sandwich Recipe

The collard green wrap in this picture is around 224 calories (I may have calculated more calories than needed for the one collard leaf).


1 serving whipped Cream Cheese = 60 calories
3 oz Rotisserie Turkey Breast = 110 calories (23g protein like emoticon )
1 raw collard green leaf (medium) = 30 calories
1/2 cup romaine lettuce (shredded) = 4 calories
1/2 tomato chopped = 20 calories
Salt / Pepper (optional - I did not use)


Clean your collard wrap and let it dry.

Break off the tail ofthe stem (where no leaf is on it).

Lay it flat (dark green side upwards) with the middle stem facing you vertically.

Spread one serving of cream cheese evenly in the middle of the collard wrap.

Break up the rotisserie turkey breast on top of the cream cheese.

Add the romaine lettuce next and the tomato on top.

Turn your plate so the middle collard green stem and food on it is now horizontal.

Start at the very end (towards you) and roll it up like you see in the picture above.

Cut it in half and serve.

As you can see,I took a bite before taking the picture. It was so good that I had to share :)

A little after my wrap, I had 4 large Brazil Nuts (112 calories) as a "dessert" (such a treat - YUM).
Other Collard Green Wrap Meal Ideas
Of course this is just a wrap idea, but you can use whatever is part of your meal plan and you like to eat. Some examples include:

1) Tuna Salad
2) Egg Salad
3) Raw or Grilled Veggies
4) Chicken Breast
5) Steak'Ems

Collard Green Wraps work well for fajitas or burritos, too, because their so sturdy (load it up and the filling won't fall out).

(© Lea Hunt 2015)
Give Collard Greens A Try ...
I hope this Collard Green Recipe / Meal Idea sounds delicious to you or at least interesting enough to give collard greens a try if you don't already eat them. If you do not care for them raw, please try the saute method or the boiling methods explained above. The taste is softened with prolonged cooking, so you can get some of the health benefits of this beneficial green veggie. Of course, keep in mind that nutrition is decreased a bit the longer it is cooked. Eating them raw will give you full vitamins and benefits; especially for your digestion as a healthy food.

Blessings to your family and you!

2 Ways To Stop Overeating At Restaurants | Eat Out & Lose Weight

How to stop overeating at restaurants. Eat Out and still lose weight with Skinny Fiber.

Eating at restaurants can sabotage your weight loss goals. This is because most restaurants serve larger portions of GMO addictive foods that are heavy in calories, carbs, sugar and fats. It is their job to cook delicious foods that keep us wanting to come back for more! Which makes it hard to not overeat at restaurants. Yet, way too easy to get completely off track with weight loss goals and this yo yo pattern can last for weeks, months or years.

So, why am I sending you tips on how to eat out at restaurants?

I am NOT encouraging you to eat out! It is just that sometimes we have to eat at restaurants for special occasions, convenience, travel or business. Yes, I could go through a bunch of suggestions like "don't eat out at all", "only eat at the health food restaurant", "just order a salad", "only drink water", etc., but the reality is that learning how to make healthy choices is better in the long run. This is why I am sharing these 2 tips with you. Hopefully, they will ease the stress of making better food choices and help you to stop overeating at restaurants while trying to lose weight!

So, please read on:

The 6 Ps of Life (and Weight Loss) - Tip #1

My Grandfather was a career serviceman, mentor and business professional. People from all over the United States respected the person that he was as well as his accomplishments. If you asked him what was his "secret to success", he would attribute everything to God, his parents, the 6 Ps of Life and my Grandmother :) My Grandfather was notorious for preaching these 6 Ps to all of us:

6 Ps = Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance

PRIOR PLANNING being point here. It's so much better to be prepared when trying to lose weight, then to accidentally go to a restaurant and eat too much food or the wrong kinds of foods for your diet plan. The same is true when meal planning at home and work, too.

Eating at restaurants is a major cause for weight gain and obesity throughout the world. 

This is because the calories add up to be far more than we could ever anticipate they would be when "blindly" making food choices. Most restaurants don't hold back on the amount of sugar, salt, fats and chemicals. So, planning ahead will help make dining out less damaging to your weight loss goals and health.

Try doing the following instead of just "winging it" all of the time:
  • Discuss ahead of time where you're going to eat!
  • Check the restaurant's website to look up nutrition facts before you dine out.
  • Determine what you will eat and drink while you are out, and STICK TO IT!!!
It's as simple as that!!! 

Additionally, this process will eventually work EVEN if you do not know which restaurant you're going to because you will start recognizing the nutritional information for standard types of foods, salad dressings, drinks, side dishes and foods cooked at restaurants.

Choose low carb and healthy food when eating out at restaurants. Make sure to take your Skinny Fiber 30 minutes before meals!

How To Find Nutritional Information On The Websites

1) Type in the restaurant's website address or Google for it.

2) Go to the menu page and click on the picture for the food you are interested in.
Usually, when you click on the picture of the food, there is a NUTRITION link for that food item, but sometimes it's in their menu list on the side of the page. 
Click on it and look at how many calories as well as how much sugar, fat, carbohydrates are in the food you want to eat. Base your choices on the parameters of your diet plan. 
Of course, keep in mind that taking Skinny Fiber at least 30 minutes before your meal will help with overeating (time it to take in the car before arriving if need be!), but you still want to check out the nutritional guides to make sure you're making healthy choices.
3) If you don't see a Nutrition link on the menu pages, look at the bottom of the Home page.
Restaurants often have one Nutritional Information guide with everything they service on one massive list. It is usually at the bottom of the home page of their website. If not, look around and you might find it.
4) If you cannot find a Nutritional Information guide then you can Google THE RESTAURANT'S NAME + NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION and find it in the Google search results.

FOR EXAMPLE (Restaurants Picked At Random):

Applebee's has a link at the bottom of their webpage:

Bob Evans does not have a nutritional information link, but when you click on the food on their menu, each listing has a NUTRITION link:

Romano's Macaroni Grill has theirs on their menu:

Some restaurants don't have this info at all

Some Restaurants Do Not List Nutritional Information

If you can not find any nutritional information for where you want to eat, you can choose to go to another restaurant . If you cannot change plans, then you can Google basic nutritional information about popular menu items and try to determine which would be best to eat.

For example,

It is not easy to find any nutritional information on the Cody's Original Roadhouse website - http://codysoriginalroadhouse.com, so when I Google the phrase:


Check restaurant websites for nutritional information before going out to eat! This can help stop overeating.

I can see other 3rd party websites where people have shared the nutritional information for that restaurant and refer to these for some guidance. The more popular the restaurant, the more 3rd party reviews and websites to refer to, so keep this in mind when choosing a restaurant.

Another solution is to simply look at the menu on their website, call ahead and ask - OR - deal with asking certain questions about what ingredients are in their food (i.e. sugar, oils, gluten, etc.) while you are at the restaurant or take the safe route by choosing basics that you know are ok for your body.

For example, salad without croutons (or cheese if you're non dairy) w/ olive oil & vinegar,  veggies and meat. That is one of my basic meal choices if I can't find nutritional information before going or we happen to choose a restaurant out of the blue (which is not often for our family).

Skinny Fiber Helps Stop Overeating, Cravings & More
Skinny Fiber is an all natural supplement that helps you not overeat and has all of the benefits of the fibers and enzymes in the product. Both are very important in aiding proper digestion which contributes to healthy weight and weight loss. Skinny Fiber also helps with metabolism, fat blocking if taken at least 30 minutes before meals and energy without the jitters.

You can learn more about how Skinny Fiber can help stop overeating on this Ingredients page.
Hope these tips have been helpful to some of you.
Even if you don't eat out much, when someone has a birthday party or if you are traveling, visiting family over the holidays or have a business meeting planned, these tips can help you be more prepared to stop overeating at restaurants. If you are going to family functions, just call ahead to see what their serving or bring a "safe dish" so that you can stay on track with your weight loss goals.

Here's to YOUR health and happiness!!!!

The Role Of Fats In Your Diet & How Fat Helps Weight Loss & Health

Learn the role of dietary fat in your diet and which are the best for weight loss health!

Dietary fats have gotten a bad reputation from many diet-conscious circles, but the truth is that fats play an important role in your health. Fats in your diet directly affect your energy level, hormones, brain function, nervous system and more. It is important to our metabolism, but the types of fats and the amounts of fats that determine whether this dietary component has a positive or negative effect on your body. This is why it's important to learn how the role of fats in your diet can help with weight loss and health goals.

Different Types of Fats & The Roles

You have probably heard of "good fats" and "bad fats" over the years; maybe reintroduced to them while researching different diet plans for weight loss. For example, the Atkins Diet encourages more protein and fats while limiting carbohydrates. On the other hand, the Slimming World Diet encourages less fats and calories in comparison to other diet plans that count points or portions.

Understanding the different types of fats and how they work in your body can play a huge part in which eating plan is best for you, as well as how to lose weight and your body metabolism.

The role of bad fats in your diet. It is best to avoid / limit bad fats especially trans fats.


Saturated fats are considered "bad" fats, that is, fats that are linked to clogged arteries, high cholesterol and increased heart disease. These fats are generally solid at room temperature. Examples of saturated fats include lard, butter, meats, poultry skin and coconut products. Eating these foods in moderation can help protect you against their unhealthy effects even though they may have benefits, too. For example, coconut oil has numerous uses and benefits for weight loss, infections, lauric acid for the heart and blood pressure, skin, helping with blood sugar and so on. It is best to choose cold pressed organic virgin coconut oil and still a saturated fat.


Many health professionals have been spreading the word on the negative health effects of trans fats. These are fats found in meat and dairy products. Trans fats are also formed when hydrogen is added to liquid oils, creating "hydrogenated oils." Consuming trans fats are associated with higher rates of LDL cholesterol, the "bad fat" type that is linked to heart disease and other problems. You should eliminate trans fat from your diet as much as possible. You can do this by eating more lean meats and non-fat dairy products.
The unsaturated fats especially Omega 3 and Omega 6 Fatty Acids play an important role in your weight loss and over all body functions. Eat these good fats in moderation!


Unsaturated fats are healthier than saturated fats and provide the components needed for body functions. These fats are usually liquid at room temperature. Unsaturated fats are further divided into monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. Examples of monounsaturated fats include olive oil, sesame oil, sunflower oil, peanut butter, avocado oil, avocados, canola oil, oils found in nuts like pecans, almonds,  macadamia nuts, peanuts, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans and olives. Polyunsaturated fats include corn oil, flaxseed, sunflower seeds, soybean oil, walnuts and certain types of fatty fish as listed below under the Omega Fatty Acids.


Dietary experts recommend eating omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which provide all the important components for body function without the negative effects of some types of fat. Humans cannot produce omega-3 and omega-6 in our own bodies, so we must consume it in our foods. Corn oil, sunflower oil, nuts, seeds, salmon, mackerel and tuna are good sources. Green, leafy vegetables are also good sources of these compounds.

Exactly how fats help with weight loss and general health benefits

The Role of Fats & Human Metabolism

Fats are necessary to the function of the human body.

1) Fats are concentrated sources of energy that can be utilized quickly when needed.

2) Fats provide the cellular materials for healthy brain function.

3) Fats also aid the absorption of vitamins A, D, E and K.

4) Fats help to transport nutrients into cells throughout the body.

5) Fats help to keep nervous systems healthy.

6) Fats also aid in hormone production.
How Much Fat Is Good For Me
Nutritional experts recommend that fat should be no more that 30 percent of the total caloric intake each day, but this amount should be primarily healthy fats. There are two basic types of dietary fat, saturated and unsaturated.

Consuming Fats Wisely

Although being conscious of the amount and types of fat you consume can help to safeguard your health, you don't have to become "fat-phobic" ... You just need to lean towards eating the good fats in moderations (according to serving sizes and recommended daily amount) AND understand where the bad fats "hide out" in the grocery story under labels that make you think the food is health for you, as well as what you choose for cooking meals.

For example:

Vegetable Oil is not an unsaturated fat, so it is not a wise choice for frying and baked goods. Frying is not a better choice than baking, though using an unsaturated fat while sauteeing is a better option. The boxed crackers, cookies or cake mixes (baked goods), doughnuts, nuggets and taco shells (fried), margarine or boxed popcorn (not counting just the plain organic popcorn kernels) --- these are all unhealthy for you and why there is such encouragement on TV shows, articles and directly from health experts to cook foods from scratch instead of eating out and / or buying pre-packaged processed foods (like macaroni and cheese, frozen pizza, microwave meals, as well as the pre-made baked goods,

The better choices include the good fats above as well as fruits, vegetables and sprouted grains.

Clean Eating – Is This Your Diet Plan For Weight Loss & Better Health

Clean Eating Diet Plan and Weight Loss w/ Skinny Fiber

Clean Eating is a subject that comes up all of the time these days. Mix it with all of the information about how successful you could be on a low carb diet, low fat diet and counting calories, and it can be challenging to even think about another way of eating for weight loss … Yet, this is one to pay attention to if you want less chemicals, pesticides and hormones in your foods!

Are you are confused about what Clean Eating is in general and whether this type of diet plan can help with your weight loss goals? It’s actually a life change that can have HUGE rewards on how you look, feel and live. Clean eating focuses on the way foods are produced and processed, in order to achieve the most natural effects on your body. This article provides a closer look at how clean eating can help you become healthier, more energetic and lose the weight for good.

What Is Clean Eating?

Clean eating involves a few key concepts that make it the most desirable way of eating for individuals trying to lose weight, detoxify their systems or avoid food sensitivities. Most importantly, it is a way of life, opposed to just a diet plan, for people that want to eat and live as clean as possible without going vegetarian or vegan.

These concepts include:

1) Eliminating processed foods from your diet.

2) Eating organically grown fruits and vegetables; natural foods free of pesticides and chemicals.

3) Eating unrefined grains such as sprouted breads, quinoa, steel-cut oatmeal, brown rice and beans / legumes.

4) Buying organic, pastured or wild meats instead of grain-fed meat

5) Using hormone-free dairy products

6) Cooking foods in ways that introduce a minimal amount of other ingredients such as stir-frying, steaming or baking.

7) Using healthy oils, such as olive oil, grapeseed oil, walnut oil, coconut oil or sesame oil.

What Are The Benefits Of Clean Eating?

Clean eating can help you to:

· Reduce blood pressure

· Regulate blood sugar in Type-2 diabetes

· Reduce the risk for heart disease

· Reduce the risk of stroke

- Reduce body fat

· Improve digestive function

· Lose weight
Can I Eat Clean While Doing A Special Diet Plan?
YES, you can eat clean while doing Atkins or other low carb diets.

YES, you can eat clean while doing the Paleo Diet.

YES, you can eat clean on a diabetic or low cholesterol diet.

YES, you can eat clean as a vegetarian or vegan.

YOU CAN EAT CLEAN while doing most any diet that does not require you to buy and use their pre-packaged foods, shakes, etc. If you are vegan, do not include the dairy and meat, etc.

Just follow the guidelines and / or recipes for your diet plan by replacing the ingredients with organic, natural, unprocessed foods. Clean eating is kind of easy that way.

It is likely that you will feel so much better (less sluggish, reduce blood pressure, lower insulin levels) while making the changes because you are choosing REAL, CLEAN, HEALTHY foods and drinks. Not processed carbs and other foods that increase health risks!
How To Integrate Clean Eating Into Your Daily Life?
Because our culture relies a great deal of convenience foods (i.e. fast foods, quick boxed foods, frozen foods and eating away from home), clean eating requires a little more planning than what you might be used to.

It’s not too hard though does require you to decide in advance which foods for shopping, daily meals and snack attacks. Simple changes like carrying a lunch, instead of eating out on your lunch hour at work, will allow to maintain a clean diet, as well as save money. It is the same when you are home with the family or planning to spend time with friends. Cook a clean meal instead of going out to eat; they will appreciate a new style of eating while learning more about this new theory of nutrition. If you do eat out of the home, patronize a health food restaurant that uses organic ingredients that are cooked fresh. When in a restaurant, try to choose the simplest items on the menu, ones that are likely to have less or no processed ingredients, such as a stir fry dishes or grilled fish and steamed vegetables.


Whether you choose clean eating for weight loss or management for a certain health condition, you may find that your health improves significantly with this type of diet plan, helping you to have better digestion, improved mood, increased energy and so much more. You will probably even feel healthier than you’ve ever felt before and never go back to unnatural eating.

Also, the theory is that one of the major advantages to clean eating is longevity! That eating healthy increases your potential for a longer life! I am not here to make claims to you, but I sure know that I get less gas when I eat organic eggs and feel so much better when OFF of processed foods. Maybe it will be this way for you, too, especially if you think that you are starting to experience allergic reactions to certain foods and / or gluten intolerance.

Lastly, if you find yourself OVEREATING while trying to make your healthy lifestyle changes and losing weight, you can take Skinny Fiber with this clean eating diet plan. The ingredients in Skinny Fiber are all natural; it helps with cleansing, appetite control and has digestive enzymes that help you better absorb the nutrients in the foods you eat, as well as block fats, increase metabolism and natural energy. Take it short or long term which working on your health and wellness.

It involved a three month Global Weight Loss Challenge that ran from April 1, 2015 until the end of June 2015; the first of it's kind with this company with very exciting Grand Prizes. The winners were announces on Here are the contest details and the list of winners with their amazing weight loss results:

How Was Global Weight Loss Challenge Different Than The 90 Day Challenge?

The Global Weight Loss Challenge was very similar to the Skinny Fiber 90 Day Challenge. The participants used all natural Skinny Fiber as their supplement for appetite control, fiber and digestive enzymes. They we all issued a special account where they received health, exercise and weight loss tips, as well as a free tool for tracking their weight and measurements. The difference in the program was that it was just held for 90 days (no personal extensions as is common for customers to do more than one 90 day challenge throughout the year). The Global Weight Loss Challenge also included mini challenge videos from the CEO of the company and the grand prizes were different.

Prizes For The Weight Loss Challenge Winners

The top 3 Winners get an all expense paid trip to Miami, Florida. Their trip includes an exciting makeover and they will become our featured weight loss celebrities on television later this year.

When will they be on TV?

Winners Of The 10,000 Steps & Strength Training Fitness Challenge

Here's a list of the winners from the 10,000 Steps A Day Challenge w/ Strength Training. Several of the participants kept up for the whole challenge and it was fun! Of course the prizes and weight loss goals were awesome incentives to stay on track through the four weeks. I hope that everyone continued to step away throughout the month of June, too. I am planning for another fitness challenge soon, so make sure to subscribe to this blog using the form on the right hand side of the page. Scroll down to see the box and enter your info!

Winners For The 10K Steps A Day Challenge!

As previously mentioned, all of the 10,000 Steps A Day challenge winners were randomly selected as seen in the first blog post w/ our week 1 winner. The prizes were either a bottle of Skinny Fiber, a bottle of Ageless Anti-Aging Serum or a $30 Amazon Gift Card. The members checked in each week by posting their stats in our Weight Loss Group. My toddler helped select a winner each week except for the one where he did not feel cooperative :)

Here are the pictures with the challenge winner's names and prizes selected:

Week 1 winner for the 10,000 Steps A Day Fitness Challenge!
JOAN W was the winner for week 1. She had already ordered her Skinny Fiber, therefore chose to have a bottle of our other product - Ageless Anti-Aging Serum - as her prize! Joan excitedly reached her 10,000 steps a day goal!

Week 2 winner for the 10,000 Steps A Day Challenge
KARLA K won the fitness challenge on week 2 and chose an Amazon gift card as her prize, so that she could buy compression socks for running (great choice, right?) since she had already ordered and taking Skinny Fiber before we started the challenge.

3rd week winner for the strength training and 10k steps challenge.
KRISTY B was our week 3 winner. She has been working on her weight loss for quite a while now and is almost at her goal weight (Very proud of her! She such an inspiration.). Kristy chose the Amazon gift card as her prize to buy a mat or resistant bands to help increase her strength training! FYI: Kristy exceeded 10,000 steps a day consistently throughout the challenge.

Winner for week 4 was Kristy!
KARLA K won again on week 4 - Lucky Girl! She chose the Amazon gift card and mentioned that she was up to an impressive 20,000 steps a day by week 4.

I want to extend a HUGE CONGRATS to everyone who participated in the 10,000 Steps A Day Challenge and did their Strength Training at least 3 times a week. You are all winners to our weight loss support group family! Thank you so much for participating ...

Also, a shout out to my little guy for helping with the challenge! It was a learning experience for him and rewarding to us as a family for him to learn the importance of what I do to help people AND in his striving for at least 10,000 steps a day with me :) He did at least a mile each time and then rode in his stroller while I walked, so I am extremely proud of him.

Why Fitness Challenges Are Important To Us

Although many people take Skinny Fiber and lose weight without working out at all, I ALWAYS ENCOURAGE customers and weight loss support group to exercise at least 3 times a week. Exercise helps with weight loss, muscles, body toning, cardiovascular health, mood, energy, aging and so much more. It really is a necessity in our lives regardless of where we are at in our weight loss and / or health journey. It should become a consistent healthy lifestyle change during and after your weight loss challenge!
