Are Cheat Meals a Good Idea?

Who wouldn’t want permission to deviate for a day and eat whatever they wanted? Imagine that nothing is off limits; the sky is the limit. Seem too good to be true? It may be time to assess a few areas of your life before taking the plunge.

Cheating anything in life is tricky. While it may leave you with a rush of adrenaline at times, the overarching leftover feelings are typically guilt and disappointment. Thoughts like “Was it worth it?” “What could I have done instead?” and “Short-term gratification wasn’t worth the cheating,” may ensue.

Chocolate Coconut Protein Truffles

Who has chocolate cravings? I know I do. Ever wonder why this happens? Chocolate is one of the best sources of magnesium that we can get from food. And when we are under stress, our bodies literally push it out of our systems to cope with daily life. So if you have a career, family, social life, drink caffeine or are a chronic over-thinker/worrier, you are likely deficient in this mineral. I take magnesium every night to help stabilize my blood sugars, regulate my stress hormones and keep my cravings at bay. But having a little extra in the form of these satisfying little bites surely won’t hurt you. In fact, your body will THANK YOU for the additional nutrition you will be getting from this stellar lineup of ingredients.

Say goodbye to stress and hello to chocolate. Plus, they are D.TOX program friendly!

Fix Your Gut For Clear Skin and Weight Loss Acceleration

Are you doing everything right, but not making the progress you want?

Are you watching what you eat, going to the club, but feeling like you are losing the struggle? Perhaps the scale is stuck, or maybe you’re missing out on the high energy and vitality that you would expect from the effort you’re putting forth.

If this describes you, you will want to learn as much about gut health as possible: it dictates how your body responds – or doesn’t - to your nutrition and exercise program.

Gut health can often be the missing link in your path to optimal health, and a fat loss plateau is a red flag that yours needs some attention. When you heal your gut, it can change your life. Your skin can start to look better, sinus congestion and allergies may improve, and weight might be easier to lose. Since digestive health is tied to brain function, you might even experience some welcomed improvements in your mood. In essence, gut health is the foundation of your health.

Life Time’s GUT.FIXSM program teaches you a specific protocol to address and reboot your digestive health. This is cutting edge information that could transform your journey. It’s custom-built for those who are ready to make some targeted changes and fully commit to a 30-day approach.

Our next FREE program begins March 15th, but you can start the prep work TODAY. Just sign up below, and you will be on your way.

5 Ways to Fit in Fitness When You Have No Time

People fall in and out of fitness all of the time.

I fell in love with fitness at a pretty young age. I have vivid memories of joining my mom as she’d do her at-home exercise videos or rollerblading alongside of her while she ran outdoors in a park close to home.

That frequency of exercise carried with me throughout high school and college as I prioritized time, almost every day, to lift weights or do some cardio.

It's called Strength Stack, and the purpose of the program is to get your muscles and metabolism working in a way that leads to quick fat loss. We call this Athletic Fat Loss, and it is for people who want to drop fat but also get stronger at the same time.

The tone of the class is very direct. You go 100% in and follow our lead. If you do, you'll get the results you are looking for. Which is increased muscle or muscle tone. And a sharp increase in the fat you burn.

This program is for both men and women. And is led by the top trainer in our company. The same guy who trains our CEO each week will be training you, virtually.

After you take this course, you will learn how to workout in a way that minimizes injury, and helps you become stronger. Which makes you feel great, and look great.

What past participants are saying:

Coach Cliff,

 I have been following the routine and can honestly say it’s Fantastic!  It’s very challenging but allows my body to recover nicely.  I am going to stick with it for 6 weeks, take a week off and get back after it.  I have never consumed BCAAs but notice a positive impact. Thanks again for sharing your expertise.  Well done.

3 Magnificent Make-Ahead Salads

Many of my clients have a hard time planning meals for the week. Particularly lunches. Fortunately, I’ve had a lot of practice with this and I’m happy to share some of my time-tested experiences.

Now, I certainly didn’t invent the Mason jar salad. But there is an art to building the perfect jarred salad. Let me break it down for you, as the way in which you layer your salad ingredients is nearly as important as the ingredients themselves.
