Warning this BLOG contains potty talk, and a new way to drastically improve your HEALTH! Are you prone to constipation, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel, or bloating? Did you know that people in cultures that squat instead of using toilets rarely have these symptoms? Rather than putting a hole in your floor, try elevating your feet in the bathroom. I figured this out when I was a young child and have used various devices including stacked phone books, a small box and a step stool. There are also devices like the ‘squatty potty.’ I LOVE mine- what difference it does make, and the children use it also. Try out this easy trick and great product to make your bathroom trips faster and easier. http://www.squattypotty.com/

This one is for all the calorie counters out there: Did you know that your body is probably already doing the math and tally for you? Researchers at the University of Sydney found that appetite may be closely linked to the balance of nutrients in the diets, rather than the calories consumed. The key here being PROTEIN. For example when we do not get enough protein we will eat until our protein stores are met. And here is the rule of thumb in regards to how much protein each person needs. For optimal function multiply 0.7 X your body weight (0.7 X 120 pounds = 84 grams of protein). And if you are active or an athlete you need to bump that up to 0.9 x body weight (0.9 x 120 = 108 grams). This is personalized medicine for YOU- what YOUR body needs in protein daily. So are you getting your adequate protein stores? Could this be the reason you might be struggling to lose weight or feel more energy in your daily life?
