Testimonial

“In November of last year, I was at the end of my rope. I was not fat or overweight per se, just really unhealthy and I felt terrible and extremely tired all of the time. I smoked a pack a day, eating really trashy and I really slowed down on the exercise. I attempted to quit smoking a million times with nicotine gum, laser treatments, acupuncture, Zyban, you name it, I used it. In regards to food, I have always been an emotional and/or bored eater. My portions were getting out of control and I all the food made me feel gross and tired. I was ready and needed to make a choice to change……
I spent my smoking money on my first 14 day cleanse. I couldn’t believe how successful I was. I was not hungry, I discovered organic food and learned to listen to my body instead of my mind. I loved the 14 day so much, that I bought a 30 day and did it right after. I lost 14 pounds and felt like rock star! I quit smoking the first day and I was surprisingly fine. Later on I attributed this to all of the happy B vitamins in the cleanse. They made my body not go into withdrawal and shock from the lack of nicotine plus I was really desperate to quit.
I have continued on with the maintenance package and I still love the shakes. I look and feel fantastic, looking forward to the 30 day challenge.”

Day 7 - January 22

“Lost another pound and a half since Wednesday. I’m down 6 1/2 lbs now – that’s in one week. I woke up and had my morning glass of Ionix Supreme, then 30 minutes later I had a Vanilla shake with 1/2 a pack (10g) of Want More Energy. That was tasty.
I’m noticing a difference in my energy and strength at the gym – a big difference actually. I found myself adding an additional 10 to 20 lbs to most of my weight lifting activities. Also, for the past 2 years I’ve had problems with my hands giving out on me when doing lat pull downs and seated rows, by the time I get near the end of both my 2nd and 3rd set, my hands often get so sore that it was painful to keep gripping the handles of the equipment and I would have to to stop before completing the set. On Wednesday, I noticed a difference and said “Let’s see what it’s like next time” – sure enough, the problem is practically gone, and I was lifting heavier weights as well.
I’ve also had a sore shoulder for the last year. After my workout
today, I suddenly realised I had so little pain, if any, that I didn’t even think about it!”

FAQs

Q – Will I have to be near a bathroom? I hear that this happens when cleansing.
A – No, this cleanse will nourish your body and you will not have to be near the bathroom.
Q – Do I have to give up coffee?
A – For best results you should not drink coffee and I have a really easy way of easing you off coffee.
Q – Will I have a headache or lack of energy?
A – Our goal is to ease you into the program so you will feel as good as possible. If you are a heavy coffee drinker, you may experience some cleansing symptoms like a headache but that is just withdrawl and that will not last.
Q – I smoke, maybe I should wait to quit before I start?
A – Why wait to get healthy? I can tailor your program to suit you and you won’t have to give up cigarettes cold turkey. Your best results are always top of mind and are priority.
Q – I don’t have any weight to lose. Is a cleanse right for me?
A – Yes, everyone needs to cleanse. If you don’t have weight to lose you will not lose weight. You will be gaining lean muscle mass, just like those who have weight to lose.
Q – I hear that if I have weight to lose I will lose quite a bit but isn’t it only safe to lose 1-2lbs a week?
A – If you are doing a traditional diet, yes, 1-2 lbs of weight is healthy but this is not a diet. You will be addressing toxicity. Toxins are enrobbed in fat and water. When you cleanse properly you will lose fat and gain muscle.
Q – I work out a lot. Can I still work out while cleansing?
A – Yes you can. Depending on the program we choose for you, there might be up to two days in the week where you would be doing a modified gentle program of exercise.

If you just can’t wait to start, you may make a purchase right away by clicking here and placing your order. It will arrive within 3-5 business days. It is important that you choose the program that is right for you. I suggest the 30 day program with bars.

If you can wait, I do recommend that we chat so I can set you up so you get your absolute best results.

Kick start your Weight loss!

Posted by Tamara Kosaba

The dreaded weight-loss plateau

It  happens, don't be discouraged! Heres a step by step plan to get you back to losing fat and building sexy lean muscle!

Step 1: Have a look at your diet, are you eating as well as you think? Check it out at www.fitday.com.

Everyone thinks they eat healthy, if your jeans are too tight then you need to take an honest look at what your really are eating!

Step 2: Include a high quality protein and good fat to every meal and snack.

Most importantly control your portion sizes! Too much of anything will stall your fatloss!

Step 3: Change your workout, vary the intensity, the exercises, and the tempo.

Step 4: STAY CONSISTENT!!!!  Forget the perfect workout and just get it done. Anything done consistently will get more results than a perfect workout that gets done periodically!

Here are a few suggestions you can use to help you lose fat and make the process easier.

Exercise. Exercise can boost your results ten-fold, especially if it includes weight training. Not only will weight training help you build lean muscle, which helps burn fat, but it can also help strengthen bones. Be sure to consult a health-care professional before starting any exercise program.

Extra protein. A scoop of IsaPro with 1-1½ scoops of IsaLean Shake may be sufficient to provide an extra boost for supporting weight loss.
Snack right. We all snack. Just avoid snacking on high-calorie, nutrient-deficient foods. In other words, keep the cake, potato chips and ice cream out of the house.

Make “better bad” eating choices. If you’re out at a fast food restaurant and a greasy burger is calling your name, just choose a single-patty with lettuce and tomato and hold the cheese and mayo.

Dietary fiber. Be sure you are receiving sufficient amounts of dietary fiber daily. Fiber helps keep you feeling satisfied longer while also keeping bowel movements regular. Isagenix recommends gradually increasing fiber to 25-30 grams daily, in line with current National Fiber Council recommendations. Isagenix products FiberPro and Slimcakes cWeighing Inan help fill fiber gaps. FiberPro is a flavorless fiber supplement that can be added to shakes or any beverage. SlimCakes are delicious oatmeal-berry flavored cookies containing 5 grams of fiber each.

Avoid sugary drinks. These can add “no nutrition” calories quickly. It’s best to drink plenty of purified water and/or nutrient-dense sugar drink alternatives such as IsaFruits or Want more Energy (Citrus is my favorite!)

Say no to “bad” fats. The “bad” includes saturated andtrans fats. “Good” fats include olive oil rich in oleic acid and fish oil rich in omega-3 fatty acids. To take ultimate advantage of omega-3 fatty acids, it’s best to take ahigh-potency, high-quality fish oil supplement daily.  New research also shows that dietary omega-3 fatty acids may be linked to lower bodyweight.

Mix it up. We all have individual differences. Something that may work for one person may not work for the next. Be sure to try a few different things and see what works best for you.

Whatever you do, it’s important that you don’t become discouraged. Shoot all scales. Pay attention to your body. As you continue to enjoy a reduced-calorie diet, providing your body with quality nutrition, and building muscle through exercise, then the weight will begin to come off safely.

What do you do when the scale stops moving? I would love to hear your story!

Cleansing to help Haiti

Today I was doing my workout and I had a thought.  There has been so much talk about the tragedy in Haiti and I had been sitting on the fence wondering how I could best make a contribution.  I could sit on the fence and not do anything forever but I decided that whatever I can do would make a difference whether it be big or small. I don’t want to get caught up in analysis paralysis, trying to figure out where  the best place to make my donation would be.  So, for the week of February 14th, the week of love, I am going to donate my entire Isagenix pay cheque to the Red Cross’s relief fund for the people of Haiti.  I was inspired by my friend Michelle Miguez who is donating funds from her Reiki and massage services for January and February to the people of Haiti.

Please consider making your cleanse purchase during the week of February 7-14 2010.  Even if you are not planning to cleanse right away, you can purchase and store it for your spring cleanse.  If you know of friends who are thinking of cleansing or just want to order nutritional shakes, supplements or beautiful all natural face and body care, this would be a great time to check out the products and do something good for others while doing something for yourself.  You can also send the products directly on to others as a gift, you don’t even need to worry about shipping.  There are delicious and healthy chocolates that have the equivalent antioxidant value of a cup of blueberries and the calories and sugar of an eighth of an apple and a luscious body lotion, body wash and scrub.  Great for a Valentine’s gift.

I have been so inspired by the people from all walks of life who are stepping up to the plate to do something and I hope that if you haven’t figured out a way to make a difference that perhaps you will be inspired by others as I have been.  We are so fortunate to have all we have and I reflect on it every day and in times like this, my sense is heightened. It is so wonderful to see the world respond in a loving and caring way.  All the best.

Get started today to order a cleanse, contact Tamara for a consultation.

I would love to hear how you are helping the people of Haiti.

As always post any questions or let me know what you would like to know more about!

Yours in Health & Fitness,

Tamara Kosaba

Cleansing and Nutrition

Posted by Tamara Kosaba

istock_000001251629xsmall-1Cleansing & Nutrition For Optimal Health with  Isagenix!

Instead of simply targeting weight loss, one should focus on achieving overall internal health, which is all about balancing and fueling the body.

Wellness involves a change in lifestyle. True, long-term weight management is feasible if you practice fueling your body with the right nutrients, stay hydrated, engage in daily physical activities and help the body cleanse the accumulated impurities.

Cleansing and refueling the body is what I call the "anti-fad diet" approach to health and weight management.

Cleansing the body at an internal level is a hot topic, and for good reason. It makes sense.

We live in a very toxic world and unless you live in a bubble, your body is continually suffering the detrimental effects of these dangerous, often deadly poisons.

Why cleanse? Just think about a few of these concerns

1. Our world is full of herbicides, petrochemicals, hydrocarbons, heavy metals, food additives and synthetic drugs and these overabundant toxins

can have adverse effect on our cells, internal organs and ultimately, our state of health.

2. Animals raised for consumption in factory farms are often injected with large amounts of steroids and antibiotics. Over 20 million

pounds of antibiotics were injected into farm animals last year alone.

3. There are so many insecticides and pesticides on our fruits and vegetables that these noxious chemicals have become apart of

our food chain. Adults and, sadly, even our children are chronically exposed to these substances.

Everything we eat and drink has a direct effect on our health. The typical western diet is destroying our digestive systems

and leading to other chronic problems in the body.

4. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published the National Human Adipose Tissue Survey

(NHATS) that started in 1976. This study demonstrated dozens of deadly impurities within our fat cells.

In 1982, they expanded beyond their original list to look at the presence 54 different environmental toxins.

Why not embrace a program that is designed to give your body the right nutrients, the right balance and the ability to

once and for all fight the battle of the bulge for good!

Do you want to lose fat?

Do you want to sleep better?

Do you want to increase your energy?

Do you want the tools and the support to take action and stick to it?
