Autumn Harvest Chili

This Autumn Harvest Chili is like a hug in a bowl. I’m not sure I know anyone that would deny a hug, and I surely don’t know of anyone that would turn down a bowl of this deliciousness. Not only are the flavors bold and warming, (think cinnamon with a little kick) but this chili is loaded with high quality nutrition. Packed with 29 grams of lean protein, along with 8 grams of fiber, (thanks to the black beans and added pumpkin) you have yourself a meal that will keep you satisfied and energized to carve all the pumpkins and explore all the orchards you can fit into a fall day.

Pumpkin is in, and I’m on board! You can keep your pumpkin spice latte. I’ve got this chili to keep me warm.

Why Greens Should Be A Part of Your Supplement Routine

Raise your hand if your childhood memories involve stubborn moments pushing peas, carrots and broccoli around your plate, despite your parents telling you that if you want to grow up to be tall and strong, you must eat your veggies. Yeah, me too.

How many of you are familiar with the myriad of public health campaigns aimed at getting everyone to eat more fruits and veggies (stubborn kids and stubborn grown-ups alike)?

Should You be Following an Elimination Diet?

I recently saw an Internet meme depicting a woman sharing a recipe with her friend, proudly proclaiming its compliance with her gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, fat-free, and soy-free diet. The punch line? She was sharing a glass of water.

It seems like every time we turn around, a new suspected food villain emerges. A quick trip to a natural grocer shows more and more “something”-free options, like gluten-free oatmeal and dairy-free yogurt. Since when did so many foods become enemies of our health? Or, the better question to ask is…are they? It’s not at all surprising that, outside of life-threatening food allergies, there’s a pervasive societal skepticism over the necessity of it all. It’s sometimes even snubbed as a completely made-up, pretentious, and unfounded diet trend of the affluent. What’s the real story here?

Join Life Time's DTOX Program For Free This Month!

A Detox Diet, done the RIGHT way, can set in motion a 5-7 pound weight loss over just a 2-week period. If you don't need to lose weight, a Detox Diet can make you feel more energized AND improve your appearance.

This type of weight loss program is based on both hard science and real world success. LIFE TIME Fitness has now developed a FREE, online and telephonic program that teaches you the safe and effective way to do a Detox, as well as what to NEVER do during a Detox process - ever.  

This weight loss program also represents a quantum leap over traditional portion control diets, which we are all familiar with. This is because all calories are not created equal, and a Detox done the right way literally programs your body to burn fat - starting at breakfast each day.

Our next FREE program begins October 17th, but you can start the prep work TODAY. Just sign up below and you will be on your way to becoming a master Detoxer. And don't worry - this isn't a weird L.A. thing. In fact, it's so easy and practical you'll wish you'd started a Detox routine years ago!

If the idea of a Detox sounds appealing but you're not ready to sign up yet, check out the podcast below. You'll be able to listen to Anika and Amber from the Life Time Weight Loss team share more about how the Life Time 14-day D.TOX℠ guides you on combining wholesome food with supportive detoxification supplements - whether you’re looking to lose weight, improve energy or reset nutritional habits.

What our past participants are saying:

Ernie T:

"We did have a point (during the 90 day challenge) where we felt like we might have hit a plateau and searched for something to help us overcome it. We found it in the Life Time D.Tox Program Kit. I again give credit to my wife for keeping us on the program but I’m glad she did because, IT WORKED! Initially it was hard to get through all the cravings but, after the program, I don’t hunger for junk food anymore and can take it or leave it. I would highly recommend anyone trying it in order to reset your body for nutrition and healthy eating habits. It was so simple to follow. The program included easy to prepare recipes like homemade hummus that were actually appetizing. My favorite was the chili. I think I could have eaten that every night and will be preparing it to entertain house guests in the future. I’m sure it will be a hit. "

Michael D:

"One resource I would be remiss in mentioning is the D.TOX program. It made a huge difference in helping me shed significant weight and body fat. I am a big fan and plan on repeating it every 6 months going forward. " 

Jennifer C:

"I figured I better cleanse my system of toxins, so I did the Life Time Fitness D.TOX. I heard stories of how hard it was but it honestly wasn’t. I felt that I was eating more than before and the smoothies are fantastic! The recipes were super easy and packed with flavor. The Morning Muesli is still my go to if I need a great breakfast, and Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Turkey Hash makes a recurring appearance in my dinner rotation."  

Nathan P:

"I was introduced to the D.Tox program by my trainer. I gave it a try……and it helped a lot. That program helped me learn what to eat, how much to eat and that healthy food can taste delicious. The D.Tox program helped jump start the weight loss by losing 7 pounds over 2 weeks time. 


Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Protein Bread

You know what I love about orange foods, specifically pumpkin? Well, pumpkin has 200% of your RDA for vitamin A. Besides being a potent antioxidant that fights free radical damage from toxin in our environment, vitamin A can help retain the youthful appearance of our skin by renewing skin cells and increasing collagen. Outside of that, pumpkin has loads of digestive friendly fiber to help keep you fuller, longer. Plus pumpkin contains zinc, an element that bolsters the immune function and is involved in maintaining proper hormone balance, along with B vitamins to support energy production. That’s a pretty stellar nutrition profile if you ask me! And just one more reason to bake with it! This pumpkin bread is dense, moist and full of healthy fats, protein and minimal carbohydrates…perfect for pre- and post-workout fueling, or as an afternoon snack to get you through the day!

7 Carbohydrates for Weight Loss

When it comes to weight loss, chances are you’ve been told that carbs (at least the starchy ones) are a no when it comes to what you can eat to net the result you are looking for.

And if you’ve worked with a Life Time Coach, you may have been recommended to prioritize non-starchy vegetables and some fruit as your main source of carbohydrates at meal time.

This recommendation is a good one, as we live in world that prioritizes highly-processed foods for their convenience and tasty flavor profile – so it’s often really easy to overeat carbohydrates in comparison of our fat and protein needs.
