New ABC Show “My Diet Is Better Than Yours” Hosted by Shaun T & Starring Jovanka Ciares!

AH-MAZING NEWS! I’ll be starting along with 4 other celebrity trainers and Shaun T of Insanity Workouts on a new show that will air on ABC prime time.  The show, called “My Diet Is Better Than Yours” and will premiere on January 7th at 9/8pm C.

This is an amazing opportunity to showcase alternative treatments and healthy living practices to mass audiences.

You’ll get the full scoop on the show’s premiere but what I can tell you right now is that my health coaching system, the Wellness Smackdown™ will be showcased as one of the 5 expert plans for people to follow to lose a significant amount of weight, improve their health and feel great again.

I’m honored, humbled and ECSTATIC to be chosen for this opportunity. And especially excited to show the world, and my communities (the Hispanic and Black communities) that it is possible to heal and thrive using the wisdom of the ages. And of course, a great chance to make the worldwide wellness and compassionate lifestyle communities proud!

This is a dream 10 years in the making. Please join me on January 7th to check out the series premiere!

Here’s one of the TV promos:

I’ll be sharing my own personal insights about the show and the process of coaching someone in front of national TV here on my video blog so make sure that you sign up for my newsletter so you don’t miss a beat!

In the meantime, please be well!

International Left-Handers Day

It’s International Left-Handers Day 2015. I’m kinda proud of being left handed but life wasn’t as easy for lefties in the past as it may be now.

This video was a lot of fun to create, check it out to find out why!

Think about it:

  •  In the dark ages, left handed people were considered evil and burned or imprisoned
  • The bible has 25 mentions of left or being left-handed, all negative
  • Old paintings depicted the devil as a lefty
  • Children as late as the 50’s were hit with wooden sticks or their left hands were tied to prevent them from writing with their left hand (this from my father’s own stories)

Still in today’s society, the word “left” implies weak or no good, while the word right or righteous, means often positive things.

  • Left in Italian is Sinistra, the root word for “sinister”
  • The word left comes from the Anglo Saxon Lyft, which means weak or broken

Some trivia about the history of lefties is a little bit more positive

  • The Incas believed left handed people possessed healing powers
  • Some Natives of North America believed that being left-handed was a sign of luck

Some facts are silly and funny:

  • More likely to pursue creative careers
  • Left handed college graduates go on to become 26% richer than right handed graduates
  • Better at multi-tasking – well, of course

Then, there’s the crazy, bizarre trivia surrounding lefties, like:

  • More likely to have allergies, headaches or migraines
  • Three times more likely to become alcoholics
  • Tend to reach puberty 4 to 5 months later than right handers
  • More likely to suffer from stuttering
  • Twice as likely to be men
  • 39% more likely to be homosexual
  • Adjust to seeing underwater quicker
  • Less able to roll their tongue than a righty

The trivia and “facts” are endless but hopefully these will entertain you for now!

 

Natural Products Expo 2015 Highlights

Last weekend I traveled to the Anaheim convention center to check out one of the largest natural foods expos in the word, Natural Products Expo West (sometimes referred to simply as expo west).

I wanted to check out the new trends in healthy options, plant-based foods, supplements and clean, conscious living. There were tens of thousands of products featured there so creating a highlight video of my experience was a bit of a challenge. So I tried to feature here the brands I loved the most based on their vision, mission and commitment to a healthier world.

Check out the video below!

Which brand or product are you most curious about? Is there any one in particular you’d like me to do a review on? What about a giveaway? Let me know by leaving a comment below!

The Food For Thought Summit Coming Soon!

For the last 4 months, I’ve been working on a little project that I’m really excited about and now I’m ready to share with you!

It’s called Food For Thought: The Mind, Body, Spirit Summit!

From April 14th-18th, I’ll be interviewing top wellness experts (doctors, nutritionists, therapists, coaches, best-selling authors) on how they manage to sustain a healthy lifestyle. All interviews will be available online at the Food For Thought website.

Since I know you’ve been searching for practical ways to live a healthier, more active lifestyle, the Food for Thought Summit is here to help you!

The #1 reason why people struggle to keep a healthy lifestyle is overwhelm. There’s just too much information out there! This summit will help you cut through the clutter, learn ways to stay motivated and create your own personal wellness revolution!
