The list I’m about to share with you can change your life and your health for good. And even if you already know about these TOXIC ingredients, you can share this list with a friend of family member who may need it more then you.

Chemicals In FoodBefore I share this list with you, I want to share with you why this is so important…

Recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about the fallacies that are present in the fitness industry. The numerous LIES you are being told from the mainstream that are NOT rooted in science and even more important are NOT sustainable or realistic for the average person.

I’m sure you’ll agree that the fitness industry is bad but there’s an industry that is even worse…

Yep… What I’m talking about is The food industry, and it’s at least twice as bad as the fitness industry!

In fact, the food industry has done more to DAMAGE your health then any other industry and all in the name of creating more food “products” which ultimately means more profits for these unethical companies.

The TRUTH is, the FDA which was founded in 1906 has approved hundreds of HARMFUL substances to be added into the foods you eat. But it get’s worse…

Since many of these substances have now been in your food supply for over a decade, scientists are beginning to relate them to SPECIFIC diseases that have rapidly been on the rise.

FDA Is Evil

I took the time to create a list of 26 common food ingredients that you really should AVOID. Read through each of them and remember to read your labels, ok. Here they are…

  1. Aspartame – an artificial sweetener found in sodas and processed foods that can cause last hormone and thyroid dysfunction.
  2. Neotame – an artificial sweetener found in processed foods which is more toxic than aspartame and causes weight gain.
  3. Red Dye #2 – an artificial coloring found in soft drinks and ice cream that causes pruritus (a severe form of itching).
  4. Blue #1 – an artificial coloring found in beverages, desserts and household items like deodorants/toothpaste that can cause nerve damage.
  5. Caramel Coloring – an artificial coloring found in dark sodas that can cause high blood pressure.
  6. High Fructose Corn Syrup – an artificial sweetener found in baked goods/dairy products that causes diabetes and fatigue.
  7. Sucralose – an artificial sweetener found in many sugar free foods that causes weight gain, skin rashes and gastrointestinal issues.
  8. Saccharin – an artificial sweetener found in Sweet n’ Low and baked foods that causes headaches, diarrhea and in extreme cases cancer.
  9. Gluten – a food additive found in pastas, cereal and bread that causes osteoporosis, neuropathy, depression and even cancer.
  10. Corn Starch – a food additive found in condiments and sauces that can cause diabetes and fatigue.
  11. Homogenized Milk – a food additive found in milk that causes diarrhea, bloating and atherosclerosis.
  12. Yeast Extract – a hidden form of MSG found in frozen dinners and can products that damages your endocrine system and damages your nerves.
  13. Olestra – a preservative found in crackers and tortilla chips that causes weight gain.
  14. Brominated Vegetable Oil – a preservative found in citrus-flavored soft drinks that can cause memory loss, nerve disorders and skin lesions.
  15. Potassium Brominate – preservative found in white flour and baked products that is a known carcinogen.
  16. Azodicarbonamide – a preservative found in packaged foods and frozen dinners that causes respiratory problems such as asthma.
  17. BHA – a chemical food additive found in snack foods that can cause cancer.
  18. BHT – preservative found in butter, cereal and meats that causes severe abdominal pains.
  19. TBHQ – preservative found in snack foods, cereals and vegetable oils that causes nausea, vomiting and dermatitis (skin irritation).
  20. Propyl Gallate – this toxic preservative is found in soups, frozen meals and condiments that causes stomach irritation and inflammation of the prostate.
  21. Propylene Glycol – this chemical preservative is found soaps/hand creams and is known to cause respiratory problems.
  22. Acrylamide – a preservative found in popcorn, pretzels and potato chips that can cause nerve damage.
  23. Phosphoric Acid – a compound found in baking powder that increases the risk of getting osteoporosis.
  24. Hydrogenated Oils – an oil found in many common foods that leads to weight gain, chronic heart disease and digestive issues.
  25. BPA-bisphenol-A – a synthetic estrogen found in plastics and water bottles that damages your metabolic development and lowers testosterone.
  26. Carrageenan – a preservative found in dairy products that damages your immune system, causes inflammation and many other conditions.

As you can see, the symptoms that come from eating foods that contain the ingredients on this list cover almost all of the most common diseases people are suffering from today. This is obviously a HUGE issue! However there is hope…

Danger Toxic ChemicalsThe best thing you can do for yourself, your friends and your family is get educated and be aware of the things you are putting in your body. Do your best to avoid the 26 TOXIC chemical food additives above and share this post with your family and friends so they can too!

If we unite together and spread this info around, you and I will have a HUGE impact on the health of future generations. After all, if we don’t consume foods that contain these ingredients, they won’t make money and if they don’t make money they will STOP including these TOXIC ingredients!!!

Here’s to you avoiding the TOXIC ingredients above so you can look, feel and perform your best!

I wanted to help you get your week started off on the right foot which is why I made a very short and simple list of the 7 challenges I have for you this week in order to feel great, increase the speed you are getting results and skyrocket your energy. Let’s dive right in…

CHALLENGE #1 – Walk 20 Minutes Every Day

Sunset WalkI talk about walking all the time. It’s the #1 fat burning exercise EVER, it helps to circulate metabolic waste products through you body faster which means you’ll recover faster, it increases your energy levels, combats anxiety and depression and gives you a chance to get some fresh air and sunshine!

Water Girl

I CHALLENGE YOU to walk 20 minutes every day this week!

CHALLENGE #2 – Drink 64oz Water Every Day

We all know that water is essential for our body to function optimally. Staying hydrates dramatically improves energy levels, focus, decision making skills and can even increase metabolism and reduce food cravings.

I CHALLENGE YOU to drink 64oz of water every day this week!

CHALLENGE #3 – Eat 5 Servings Of Veggies Every Day

I don’t even have to tell you that (because your mama and papa already did) veggies are the staple of a diet that will help you look, feel and perform your best. Eating more veggies can improve digestion, increase energy and reduce cravings for processed carbs and sweets.

I CHALLENGE YOU to eat 5 servings of veggies every day this week!

CHALLENGE #4 – Wake Up And Be Grateful Every Day

Gratitude is the key to transforming your dull, boring life into a life you love to live. The reprogramming of your mind to have an “attitude of gratitude” could be the most powerful thing you could ever do for yourself. Furthermore, research has shown that gratefulness is one of the key factors that determines your longevity. If you wanna live a long happy life, make a habit out of being grateful.

I CHALLENGE YOU to wake up and think about 3 things you are grateful every morning this week!

CHALLENGE #5 – Workout 3 Days This Week

Exercise is essential if you want to look, feel and perform your best. However, sometimes when life gets the best of us, the first thing to go is our workouts. I’m no stranger to this which is why I’m challenging you to commit to working out 3 days this week. No excuses, ok.

I CHALLENGE YOU to workout 3 days this week!

CHALLENGE #6 – Take 2 Cold Showers This Week

Girl in the outdoor showerI’m a huge fan of cold water therapy and the only way to find out why is to rip off the band-aid and find out by cranking the shower to cold :) Seriously though, cold water therapy has changed my life and the lives of many others in The Garage Warrior Community which is why you need to give it a try. Just crank the water to cold for a minimum of 60 seconds at the end of your shower and enjoy the extra energy, lazer like focus and increased metabolism all day.

I CHALLENGE YOU to take 2 cold showers this week!

CHALLENGE #7 – Read Instead Of Watch TV 1 Day This Week

I understand that TV is a huge part of most peoples lives. I get it, I love me some House Of Cards too! The only problem is when it becomes such a big habit that you cannot disconnect from it and watching TV becomes the only thing you do. Instead of watching TV every day this week, I challenge you to NOT watch any TV one day this week and read a book during the evening hours instead. If you do this you’ll see the benefits of “unplugging” immediately.

I CHALLENGE YOU to read instead of watch TV 1 day this week!

Ok, just to recap the 7 challenges I have for you… (PRINT THIS OUT)

1 – I CHALLENGE YOU to walk 20 minutes every day this week!
2 – I CHALLENGE YOU to drink 64oz of water every day this week!
3 – I CHALLENGE YOU to eat 5 servings of veggies every day this week!
4 – CHALLENGE YOU to wake up and think about 3 things you are grateful every morning this week!
5 – I CHALLENGE YOU to workout 3 days this week!
6 – I CHALLENGE YOU to take 2 cold showers this week!
7 – I CHALLENGE YOU to read instead of watch TV 1 day this week!

Remember, it’s subtle habit changes like the 7 challenges above that will make all the difference to you in the long run. Work on making these 7 a habitual part of your daily life and you’ll be on the right track to developing a body that looks, feels and performs it’s best!

Here’s to you taking on these 7 challenges this week!

 

Happy couple on wedding day. Bride and Groom. Vintage wedding.Ahhh weddings…

The one I went to yesterday reminded me of how excited and sure you feel on your own wedding day. That sense of finding the person you want to spend the rest of your life, raise a family with and ultimately die with. My good friend had that look on his face yesterday and I couldn’t help but get all teary eyed because of how excited I was for him :)

Then… We did what you do at weddings…

Dance the night away!

What a fun experience it was but it rose a question in my mind. Now this may be a touch subject in some peoples minds but I like to share my thoughts with you as we both go through this journey of becoming better together :)

The thought I had that really saddened me was that more then 50% of marriages these days ends up in divorce :( Which means that out of all the weddings you go to this year maybe 2 out of 5 are gonna make it to the end. Pretty sad right?

I got to thinking to myself why this is and I can’t help but think that our society these days lacks something powerful that earlier generations understood much better then us…

What I’m talking about is…

COMMITMENT!The word Commitment

And not flimsy, I’ll commit to it for 30 days commitment but full on until death do us part commitment.

When this thought struck my mind I realized that commitment isn’t only an integral part of marriage, it’s an integral part of you achieving any goal whether it be building more muscle, losing bodyfat, boosting your performance or turning around your health.

To me, what this means is that our general lack of commitment is what’s holding us back, right?

So… What are you to do about it?

Recommit every single day to the things you hold valuable to you. If it’s your marriage, then recommit every day to making it last and making it great. If it’s your fat loss goals that seem to come and go, recommit every single day to yourself that you’ll go through with it!

Regardless of what your goals are, they key to achieving them is COMMITMENT!

Without it, you’ll never have the motivation to stick to it when times are good and you’ll certainly never have the motivation to stick to it when times are bad.

Take a moment right now to think about the goals you have in your life that are the most important to you.Goals 2014

Now… Pull out a pen and write down the 3 most important things to you on a scratch piece of paper or a 3×5 card.

Great! You now have in your possession a daily reminder that you can use to recommit yourself to your goals. Look at it every day, read it out loud and try to feel like my friend did yesterday, excited about the commitment and 100% sure that he is gonna make this work to the end!

Here’s to commitment, re-commitment and reminding yourself to recommit to the things you value most!

 

It’s fathers day today and I wanted to take this opportunity to write to you about what it means to be a man…

The reason why I wanted to share this with you is because in the last 14 months of being a father I’ve learned so much about myself and my values have changed dramatically.

My First Pic With EllieSince I’ve been a father for 14 months, I decided that I would write down 14 characteristics of what it means to be a man.

Before I dig in, I want you to know from the start that I’m by no means perfect, in fact many of the realizations I’m gonna share with you today are things that I’m still working on.

The best way to use this article is to pick the 1 thing you feel you need the most work on and FOCUS on that. After you’ve turned this lemon into lemonade move on and keep working on being a man.Ellie And Papa Downward Dog

Lets’ get started…

1) Being a man means not being afraid to self reflect on your character.

2) Being a man means you have the courage to tell the truth even when telling a lie would be much easier.

3) Being a man means knowing the right time to solve the problem and the right time to say nothing at all.Me And Ellie Reading

4) Being a man means not being afraid to roll up your sleeves and do what other boys aren’t willing to do.

5) Being a man means learning from your mistakes rather then being brought down by them.

6) Being a man means you have nothing to prove to anyone but yourself.

7) Being a man means having an ego around what you know you are good at. Not being conceited, but being proud of your unique talents and skills.

8) Being a man means having strength of body, mind and spirit.

tyler and ellie9) Being a man means doing the best you can to be an example for your friends and family.

10) Being a man means not being afraid to show your emotions. Especially to those closest to you.

11) Being a man means being willing to admit when you are wrong and if necessary, providing a sincere apology to the ones you hurt.

12) Being a man means accepting others for who they are NOW and not trying to change them to what you think would be better.

13) Being a man means protecting those who are weaker then you physically and mentally. Not through force or anger but through love and compassion.

14) Being a man means being willing to die for what you love and believe in.

Here’s to constantly working on being a better man!
