I Want To Give You a Shortcut

By | Nutrition, Transformations, Uncategorized

The “self help” industry gets a bad rap by many people. One misconception that some have is that you have to be “messed up” or “broken” to attend a self-help type seminar or program. As someone who has attended dozens of these events, been on countless teleseminars and webinars, and listens to 8 podcasts on a regular basis, I have concluded that you don’t need to be messed up at all…

Most of the people who are signing up for these types of things are just looking for that extra edge in their life, they already have so much going for them. Another way of saying it, they are looking for a shortcut. I am not talking about taking a diet pill type shortcut. I mean learning from others mistakes so that you don’t have to go through them. I would like to provide you with the opportunity to take advantage of two shortcuts that will drastically help you become leaner and healthier. The first two are just for those local in Madison.

#1 I have asked Tracie my nutrition expert to give another free presentation at the Fit Moms Transformation Center at 6:30 pm on Monday January 6th. Click here to get your free ticket.

Title of Presentation… Is Gluten causing YOU weight loss resistance? I know…I know – You may be wondering what is up with all the gluten free diet information out there? You may be thinking…is this another fad? Join us on Monday, January 6th at 6:30 PM at the Transformation Center to learn from Tracie Fountain, MS why this specific food may be causing health issues in your body and even weight loss resistance. You will learn what gluten is, what foods contain it, how it affects the body and why it becoming a problem for many people.

This is a free event, but please consider bring a cash donation for the RIVER food pantry, so they can purchase fresh produce for their clients. Last time Tracie came we had 178 register for the event. Click here to RSVP before it sells out like last time

#2 Our very own “chef” will be putting on our first 4 part cooking bootcamp at the Fit Moms Transformation.

Hi everyone! This post is from Carrie, one of Dustin’s contributors.

If you read my first blog you know I had felt deprived during my other weight loss attempts. Because of this it became easy for me to justify not beginning another program. I just didn’t want to feel that way for months. Well, I’m here to say you do not have to feel deprived while you are losing weight. I AM losing weight and I’m NOT hungry. I eat butter, 2% greek yogurt, 2% milk, chocolate, pizza, and restaurant food (all in moderation mind you, but that is another blog post!). As I’m learning more about nutrition, I am beginning to understand why those other programs were so hard for me to stick with. So what happened on those previous programs that didn’t work for me and why?
