As network marketers, we’re all too familiar with the word “no”.

However, Richard and Andrea believe that with the right mindset you can turn this obstacle into your greatest asset!

Come and discover:

  • How to reprogram the way you think about “no” creating a mindset that encourages persistence and tenacity
  • Specific ‘go for no’ strategies that can increase your sales and team-building efforts, reduce your fears, and improve your confidence
  • How to get off the yes/no emotional roller coaster and reduce negative feelings about rejection

Through unique anecdotes, enlightening stories, and their popular ‘Go for No!’ game, Richard and Andrea will have you more inspired than ever to breakthrough self-imposed limitations!

Richard and Andrea are also producers of a 98-minute personal development DVD and their “go for no” philosophies have been featured in numerous publications including Inc. Magazine, Networking Times, Success Magazine, and many more.

Eat more fiber

Has your doctor ever told you to eat more fiber? Maybe you wanted to stay “regular”. Dietary fiber not only help to relieve constipation, it also helps the body maintain a healthy weight and lowers the risk for diabetes and heart disease.1  Children and adults need at least 20 to 30 grams of fiber (e.g. 2 ½ cup of blueberries) per day for good health, but most Americans get only about 15 grams a day. 2

There are actually two kinds of dietary fiber — soluble and insoluble. The body needs both of these to support health, and there are many delicious fiber-rich foods that make it easy to get your daily servings. So what is the difference between these two kinds?

Soluble fiber

Soluble fiber is soft and sticky. Soluble fiber forms a gel-like substance inside the digestive system when combined with water. It helps soften stool so it can easily slide through the gastrointestinal tract. It also binds to cholesterol and sugar, preventing or slowing their absorption into the blood.

Soluble fiber creates a feeling of fullness, which helps with weight management. A study in Annals of Internal Medicine suggested that aiming to eat 30 grams of fiber each day can help with weight management. 3 Soluble fiber is also known to help regulate blood sugar levels, and protect against heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol. 3

Soluble fiber comes from oats, peas, white beans, avocado, black beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, raspberries, blueberries, barley and psyllium.

Insoluble fiber

This is the type people think of as “bulk” or “roughage.” It’s the tough matter found in whole grains, nuts, and fruits and veggies that doesn’t dissolve in water. Insoluble fiber is not digestible or readily absorbed into the bloodstream. It adds bulk to waste in the digestive system, which helps prevent constipation.

Insoluble fiber comes from corn, green beans, pears, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta and bread, brown rice, nuts, celery, sprouts, onions, cucumbers, leafy greens, cauliflower, broccoli, and potatoes.

Our bodies need both soluble and insoluble fiber

On product labels, you’ll often see “Total Dietary Fiber” listed, for good reason. Both kinds are important for your health. A study in The Journals of Gerontology reported that eating the right amount of fiber…can help us avoid disease and disability into old age. The study found that those who had the highest intake of fiber or total fiber actually had an almost 80% greater likelihood of living a long and healthy life over a 10-year follow-up.4

Did you know that Genesis PURE 360 Complete Shake meal replacement has 11 grams of fiber per serving? It’s actually one of the best sources of fiber that you can take on a regular basis. And, Genesis PURE Mila contains both soluble and insoluble fiber.

Be sure to drink plenty of water

Fiber depends on water to do its job. Soluble fiber absorbs it, while insoluble fiber traps water adding bulk and moisture to waste to prevent constipation. Be sure to balance your fiber intake with plenty of water. The Institute of Medicine suggests about 9 cups daily for women and 13 cups every day for men.5

Ask the Expert: frequently asked questions

ATEoftheWeek_0216At Genesis PURE, we have an expert team that is dedicated to answering your product and nutrition questions.

Here are the most popular questions from the last week. You might find a topic related to a question you have.

Q: Are  you diluting the effectiveness of Acai when you ultra pasteurize it? Can I say it’s all natural if we are altering it after it’s picked and before it’s bottled? A: Although the levels of certain nutrients in Acai may decrease with pasteurization, the final product retains most of the original nutritional value. After you open pasteurized juice, it may lose nutritional value due to exposure to light and the air. To optimize nutritional value, store pasteurized juice in the container in which it came. Acai is still all natural as we are not altering or adding any ingredients. 

Q: The previous Shake formula/ingredients showed a Greens blend, a Superfruit blend, and some others. Were those ingredients taken out of the 360 Complete Shake?   A: We did reformulate our meal replacement shake last year to better align with our HealthTrim line of products. We still have a superfruit blend with a vegetable that is listed with the other ingredients. The 360 Complete Shake contains papaya fruit powder, carrot powder, goji berry extract, noni extract, noni extract, mangosteen extract, acai extract, pomegranate extract, tart cherry powder, and raspberry powder.
As a meal replacement shake, it incorporates whey and pea proteins, as well as a unique potato extract and fiber blend that helps the body control feelings of hunger. 360 Complete Shake offers a combination of vitamins and minerals, protein, carbohydrates, fat and fiber. Each 160-calorie serving is ideal for those looking to replace a meal or avoid overeating between meals. The secret is in a protein extract and fiber blend. Learn more at http://www.genesispure.com/products/display/2163/117/360-complete-shake-br-vanilla-bean.

We recommend adding a scoop of Greens to your shake to benefit from those phytonutrients. Or combine it with your favorite fruit juice, smoothie or other Genesis PURE product. Greens is made up of four Proprietary PURE Blends that utilize some of the most beneficial superfoods, botanicals, superfruits, and mushrooms available, giving your life the edge it craves and deserves. In this way, your body is benefiting from the whole fruit and vegetable.

ATEoftheWeek_0216At Genesis PURE, we have an expert team that is dedicated to answering your product and nutrition questions.

Here are the most popular questions from the last week. You might find a topic related to a question you have.

Q: Can you help explain why we have goji juice and wheat grass in our product line? A: Simple sugars as well as the vitamins and minerals in wheat grass can be absorbed by the body and is a natural source of vitamins A, E, C, K and B6 as well as calcium, magnesium, selenium and iron. The fiber is not fully digestible, but this is true of most fruits and vegetables. Goji, known as the “happy berry,” may promote feelings of well-being. It has high nutrient content, carotenoids, essential fatty acids and powerful antioxidant properties. It also is a source of vitamin C and polysaccharides to support healthy functions of the immune system.

Q: My mother in law is doing Rally28. She has high blood pressure. Is there anything she should stray from? She is also constipated. A: We recommend your mother-in-law consult her physician before starting any weight-loss program. Additionally, the recommended use for Metabolic ONE states: Do not take this product if you have heart disease, high blood pressure, or are taking any prescription medication, especially monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). The constipation could be caused by her body adapting to the added amount of fiber she is getting from the program. One serving of 360 Complete Shake provides 11g of fiber. If she is using two shakes a day, she is getting 22g of fiber, which is 88% the DV for fiber. Most people do not consume enough fiber in their diet, so when they add more, constipation can occur. It is important to drink sufficient water to help move fiber through the digestive tract. She may want to reduce the amount of shake she is using and give her body time to adapt to the added amount of daily fiber. Another issue may be what we call transitory adaptation. As an individual makes significant changes to their diet, some people need time to adapt to these changes. Some people may experience some GI disturbances as a result of the changes until the body learns to adapt.  Generally, like increased fiber intake, we recommend cutting back amounts used and then increasing them back to normal dosages as tolerated. However, in the case of your mother-in-law, we highly recommend she consults with her physician before using the Genesis PURE supplement products.

Q: What metals does C’ENCIA pull out of the skin? A: C’ENCIA is intended to intensely moisturize the skin and nourish the skin with beneficial ingredients to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Products intended to pull impurities out of the skin are usually face masks and unfortunately C’ENCIA does not have this effect.  If Genesis PURE had a face mask product, it would not be capable of pulling out “metals” from the skin.  This is a common misconception sometimes touted by other companies.  A face mask can draw out of the skin dirt, sebum, dead skins cells and other accumulated particulates like cigarette smoke, pollution fumes, and pollen.  Unfortunately, C’ENCIA does not have the capability to pull impurities or metals out of the skin.

 

Chew on this, and cut calories at the same time

chew_on_this_0217Wouldn’t it be great if you could lose weight while you ate? We are not talking about eating a granola bar while walking on the treadmill. Certain foods actually have thermogenic properties meaning they raise your core body temperature and thus boost your metabolism.

The following foods have actually been shown to boost your body’s calorie-burning potential, so you can burn calories while you chew and digest.

Fat-burning foods:  

Whole Grains: Did you know your body is burning calories when you digest food?  In one study, it was shown that a meal containing whole grains required twice as many calories to digest as a meal containing refined grains (137 vs. 73 calories).1 Whole grains have other health benefits as well, including a higher protein and fiber content than refined grains.

Lean or Plant-Based Protein: Moderately increasing protein intake may modestly increase metabolic rate. A healthy protein intake may provide additional weight management benefits by increasing fullness following a meal and promoting retention of lean muscle mass.2

Hot Peppers (capsicum): Peppers may modestly increase both metabolism and fat burning. The benefits of red peppers have been seen in studies using pills as well as whole foods. Regardless of how you ingest it, capsicum may aid your weight management efforts.3   Genesis PURE products such as Daily Build, Metabolic ONE and HealthTrim® Cleanse contain ingredients from peppers. Greens contains organic cayenne fruit and PURE Café has black pepper extract.

Oolong, Green, or White Tea: Oolong, green, and white teas are rich in polyphenols (plant chemicals) and also contain caffeine. The metabolism- and energy-boosting effects of consuming polyphenols and caffeine have been shown in numerous studies.4

Coconut Oil: While coconut oil has not specifically been found to increase metabolic rate or promote fat burning, it may be a beneficial food to add to your weight management program. In recent studies, individuals consuming coconut oil as part of a weight management program experienced greater reductions in waist circumference than those who did not consume the coconut oil5, 6 in addition to helping support weight management, preliminary evidence suggests that coconut oil may also help promote blood cholesterol profiles at normal levels.7

Genesis PURE HealthTrim® line of products:

In addition to the foods above, Genesis PURE’s HealthTrim® line of products can help you reach your own unique weight-management goals with targeted nutrition. The following products are all part of Rally28, Genesis PURE’s Complete Nutrition Weight Loss System.

  • 360 Complete Shake contains a proprietary Craving-Control technology and fat-burning ingredients. A unique potato extract helps promote healthy weight loss while Protease Inhibitor, derived from potato, helps to reduce appetite.*
  • Green Coffee Bean contains chlorogenic acids which offer beneficial polyphenol antioxidants, an amount comparable to some products used in weight management research. Some studies show that the chlorogenic acid in green coffee beans affects how the body handles blood sugar and metabolism.*
  • PURE Café is a slimming coffee that suppresses appetite so you can limit the amount of calories you are eating throughout the day.*
  • Metabolic ONE contains green tea and cayenne pepper and caffeine, ingredients that help supercharge a sluggish metabolism.*

Devise your fat-burning meal today, and be sure to combine it with plenty of exercise and adequate sleep.

Please consult a healthcare professional before beginning any diet plan, supplement regime or workout plan.

Random Acts of Kindness Day

randomkindness_0217In honor of Random Acts of Kindness Day, Friday, February 17, our Genesis PURE™ family wanted to share how we show kindness around the office and in our communities.

We are all about caring for others, and we believe that little gestures of hope and kindness can combine to make a huge difference. It’s our corporate culture.

  • “My random act of kindness today is to give 8 HUGS! Did you know a simple hug releases oxytocin and serotonin levels elevating happiness and lowering loneliness, anger and anxiety? Hugs strengthen the immune system, boost self-esteem, and relax muscles increasing circulation while balancing the nervous system. Hugs are like meditation and laughter.  Everyone needs them and they are free to share!” – Michelle Karr, IBO Compliance
  • “I’m going to purchase something special for a co-worker who is always thinking of others anonymously.” – Lisa Puskarich, Human Resources
  • “My wife and I are planning on going to a grocery store and paying for groceries of a woman in line and also handing out a dozen roses to 12 women.” – Daren Hogge, CEO
  • “I will compliment a co-worker on what an awesome job they do every day and how much I enjoy working with them.” – Susan Betts, IBO Success
  • “I witnessed kindness over the weekend when a young man, probably no older than 21, offered to help an elderly couple put groceries in their car.  It brought true joy to my heart.” – Megan Maxwell, Marketing Manager
  • “I would take someone out to lunch (or dinner), or if I was fully unpacked from my move, I would cook and provide lunch for everyone.”  – Janeth Alvarez, Quality Control
  • “While driving, my daughter and I saw a father and young son panhandling. Though this generally has a negative connotation, there are people who are genuinely hurting. My daughter and I decided to make ‘gift bags’ for those we see in need. They each contain a bottle of water, various toiletries, and a few snacks that won’t spoil. We fill gallon-size food-storage bags that will prevent spills and can be reused!” – Lucette Campbell, Graphic Designer
  • “I was the recipient of an act of kindness while I was in line at a fast-food restaurant. When I got to the window to pay, the cashier said that the person who had been in front of me had paid for my order. I was so grateful that it prompted me to pay for the person behind me. The feeling was contagious and the act has stuck with me.” – Jennifer Evans, Marketing Copywriter
  • “Acknowledging jobs well done. Offering words of affirmation and hugs.  Providing lotions and soaps in the ladies room and special snacks in the break room. Providing catered lunches.” – Laurie Shaw, Human Resource Manager

Of course, we may not be able to help everyone, but we can be kind to everyone!

How are you showing random acts of kindness with the people around you? Share with us!
