Start your day with new HealthTrim® PURE Café

coffeemug_blog_v2Not only does PURE Cafe wake you up, it slims you down with a balanced blend of botanicals, antioxidants, vitamins, and natural caffeine. It’s an ideal and convenient way to jump-start your weight-loss journey. PURE Cafe, as part of Genesis PURE’s HealthTrim® line of products, helps suppress appetite to limit the amount of calories you are eating. It helps speed up your body’s ability to burn fat while helping to increase the absorption of nutrient-rich foods.

Start every day with PURE Café, along with proper diet, quality sleep and regular exercise. It’s a simple way to jump-start your goals as you segue into Genesis PURE’s Rally28 weight-management system. Introducing PURE Café to your morning routine can help reduce cravings by suppressing the appetite without the addition of calories. Plus, you’ll love the distinctive mocha flavor.

Take a closer look at what makes up this rich formulation:

  • Garcinia cambogia is an herb found naturally in India, parts of Asia, and on the Pacific coast of South and Central America, all the way from Peru up to Mexico. Also known as Brindall berries, garcinia is believed to act as an appetite suppressant. Increased calorie burning and a suppressed appetite help prohibit the body from converting excess carbohydrates into stored body fat. In fact, garcinia cambogia can help increase your energy.
  • Piperine, also known by its trademarked name, BioPerine, is an extract derived from black pepper. It gives peppers their spicy taste. This extract has been found to increase the absorption of a variety of nutrients. According to an article published in the Journal of Ayruveda and Integrative Medicine in 2010, piperine was shown to increase the absorption of vitamin C, selenium, beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin B-6, and coenzyme Q.
  • B-vitamin complex is a combination of B6, B12, Riboflavin, Niacin and Thiamin, all responsible for protein metabolism and the healthy functioning of nerves and blood vessels. B vitamins also support energy and the breakdown of foods and carbohydrates.

In addition, PURE Café also:

  • Contains clinically supported amount of hydroxyl citric acid for maximum fat burning
  • Contains polyphenol-rich oolong tea for antioxidants and metabolic boosting
  • Is naturally sweetened with a hint of stevia
  • Contains 150 mg of naturally sourced caffeine
  • Contains clinically tested Piper nigrum for optimal absorption of key active ingredients
  • Contains other ingredients to support blood sugar level maintenance

We’ve created a special mug just for enjoying PURE Café, and you can order it here. It makes a great conversation starter or a gift for all the coffee lovers you know. livepreview-aspx

My goal for doing Rally28 was to start eating healthy on a regular basis and it helped me do just that! Rally28 gave me the motivation to start planning my meals and snacks every day so I always had something good but healthy to eat and I was no longer tempted to hit the drive-thru. Rallying helped me learn how to make healthy eating my new lifestyle! –  Whitney H.

“I can’t say enough good things about Rally28.  I found the system to be educational and easy to follow. I lost five pounds and four inches, and I found that I had more energy. It’s now 90 days since I started and I am keeping the weight off. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone interested in weight management or just interested in applying Whole Health to their life. – Dave B.

“With help from Rally28, I lost 18 pounds and three inches from my stomach. What I love about Rally28 is that I am never hungry and I’m always energized.” – Darin B.

“I’ve been overweight all my life and fitness/nutrition was never a priority for me. Having tried many different weight-loss programs without much success, I accepted that I was “meant” to be overweight and out of shape. Like I’ve done every year, I made a promise to myself that 2016 was the year for real change and I knew Rally28 was what I needed to see long-term success…

The system is simple and gave me the structure I needed to implement a lifestyle change. While participating in Rally28, I joined a boot camp program. This combined with the Rally28 program has changed my life.  Over the past few months, I’ve experienced normal readings on lab work, I’ve run a ¼ mile without stopping, and I’m wearing clothes I’ve been saving for years. The scale says that I weigh less than I have in 10 years, but more importantly I am stronger and more motivated than ever!  I have a long Whole Health journey ahead of me but I know I will be successful with the help of Rally28 and support systems built into the program.”  – Trish T.

“Weight management is very personal but I believe everyone needs a ‘why’ and a ‘how’.  I’ve had my ‘why’ for a while and I found my ‘how’ with Rally28. I’ve been able to gain muscle mass and I’ve lost 18 pounds and 11.25 inches overall.  My confidence and energy levels are higher than they’ve ever been.  I continue to rally and have set several goals to reach before my 50th birthday in 2017.  I believe I will reach those goals before then, and will be able to maintain the results. Thanks, Genesis PURE!” – Nena S.

“Within the last year, before Rally 28, I had gained 40 pounds. I made great effort in following the program using the Rally28 Program Guide. It paid off in more ways than one. I lost 19 pounds during the 28 days and I kept with it after the four weeks. I am now 45 pounds lighter and have much more energy!” – Aaron O.

“Rally28 is amazing! I followed the instructions as outlined in the program. By eating six small meals a day, I was not hungry like I always had been on previous diets. I had the 360 Complete Cacao Shake for two of my daily meals, which made food prep for the three other meals so easy.   I started walking 30 minutes a day, building up to an hour every day.  In the first 28 days I lost 12 pounds. To date I have lost a total of 23 pounds.  This is a lifestyle, not a diet. I truly believe that is why I am having so much success.” – Lisa P.

Slow down, you’re eating too fast

mindful_eating_1016 We’ve got to make our delicious food last! You’re probably familiar with the phrase, “Stop and smell the roses.” Have you ever stopped to really savor your food? Eating slower and thinking about your food can help with weight problems and may even help some people make healthier choices.

Do you come home from work and head straight for the cupboard for a snack? Do you keep snacks at your desk and munch while surfing the Internet? We live hectic lifestyles making it hard to keep our bodies functioning and achieving a lifestyle of Whole Health. When you are eating mindlessly, it’s to lose attention to what we’re eating and why.

When we are mindful about our food, we engage all of our senses. We notice the smells, flavors, colors, sounds and textures. We chew slowly and eat without distractions, like reading or watching TV.  We are aware of what is on the table, what is going into your mouth, and how much you are eating. Being mindful of our emotions helps us recognize when we are eating because of anxiety or sadness. But what we probably need to do is talk to a friend, take a walk, play some music, take a warm bubble bath, or diffuse Genesis PURE’s Lavender Essential Oil to create a relaxing environment.

 There are other things we can do to increase mindfulness:

  • Set your kitchen timer to 20 minutes, and use that time to eat a normal-sized meal.
  • Try eating with your non-dominant hand; if you’re right handed, hold your fork in your left hand.
  • Take three deep breaths between bites.
  • Think about the production of your meal, from nature to farmer to grocery store.
  • Take small bites and chew slowly.
  • Before opening the fridge or cupboard, ask yourself if you are really hungry? Could you go for a walk instead, or read a book?
  • Reserve time for meals and stick to them.
  • Don’t skip meals.
  • Participate in Rally28, Genesis PURE’s premier weight-loss system offering a simple, yet effective way to help you change your body and your life. This winning combination of Genesis PURE’s proprietary Craving-Control Technology and sustainable fat-burning ingredients support weight loss while you develop healthier habits for real, lasting results.

How does mindful eating help solve weight issues?

The simple act of slowing down allows you to think first before you act, which gives you a chance to make a healthier choice. Many people who struggle with food react mindlessly to their thoughts and feelings. They are not fully aware that they’re eating because they are sad or anxious. They don’t pause to ask the question, “Am I really hungry?” They usually aren’t, but they are eating to appease the emotion. Being mindful empowers you to look for options that are healthier and work better for you.

Give your body what it needs to live a lifestyle of Whole Health. Genesis PURE is here to help.

You asked, we answered

ATEoftheWeek_0216Q: How do we know the body needs sulfur? How much sulfur does a person need to function properly?   How much sulfur does a person go through or lose in a day?

A: Sulfur is an essential nutrient obtained from soil that is required for plants to grow, but what about for humans? It can be obtained in the diet from sulfur-containing amino acids (SAAs) like methionine, cysteine, and taurine. These can be found in protein rich foods such as poultry, meat, fish, eggs, nuts, milk, legumes and cheese. The body does acquire some sulfur by consuming these foods. Some have suggested it is essential to human health; however, there is limited research in this area. The NIH’s US National Library of Medicine lists sulfur as a macromineral the body needs along with calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potassium, but there is currently no established RDA for sulfur. It is one of the most abundant minerals in the body, since it contains approximately 175g of sulfur behind calcium and phosphorus (~1400g and 850g respectively).

Q: What are the eight essential oils in Genesis PURE’s Boost8?

A: The eight essential oils in Boost are: Clove, Cinnamon, Frankincense, Rosemary, Basil, Bay Laurel Leaf, Bergamot, and Thyme.

Q: How many servings per day of Mila qualifies as “high intake of ALA”?

A: There isn’t an official RDA requirement for omega-3 fatty acids or ALA. The body can convert alpha linolenic acid (ALA) to omega-3 fatty acids, which have various benefits to the body. One serving of Mila provides 3g (3,000mg) of ALA. The FDA recently established an amount of ALA that constitutes the allowed use of a “high source” claim.  This amount is > 320mg per serving.  One daily serving or even half a serving of Mila would provide more than sufficient ALA to meet the FDA’s standard. It actually offers more than 9 times this amount; however, Genesis Pure recommends one serving daily in order to derive the most benefits from this incredible product.

Healthy eating during the holidays

holiday-nutrition-survival-guide-1215 It’s that time of year for holiday festivities, and that comes with a lot of extra food, sugar and alcohol, and a lot less time for exercise.  It can be challenging to maintain your weight and your health. But just because you’ve always eaten sugar-laden and fatty foods doesn’t mean you have to veer off that path to Whole Health. You can find alternative ways to make your old favorites.

While avoiding weight gain during the holidays may seem as believable as Santa’s ability to visit every home on Christmas Eve, I am confident you can avoid packing on the pounds this December with the help of these tips.

Tip #1 – Eat a healthy snack BEFORE going to a party.  You will help provide your body with nutrition and you’ll fill yourself up a little, so that you don’t eat as much of the unhealthy foods. Genesis PURE™ Greens, combined with Mila, GPS Hydration and water is a great-tasting beverage that provides nutrition and fiber to help fill you up.

Tip #2 – Drink a full glass of water before each alcoholic beverage you have.  Alcoholic beverages are high in sugar, calories and, of course, alcohol.  They are also very dehydrating.  By drinking a glass of water before each alcoholic beverage, you’re hydrating your body, helping your kidneys flush toxins, and filling yourself up, so you don’t desire as much alcohol.

Tip #3 – Eat small portions.  For example, instead of a big, heaping spoon-full of mashed potatoes AND yams AND stuffing AND a roll, take just a tablespoon full of each and a half of a roll.  If you’re still hungry later, you can always go back for more.

Tip #4 – Use the same principle as Tip #3 for your sweets.  Take just a small portion of several things you’d like to sample.  Don’t be afraid to cut that pie piece into thirds or that fudge in half.  While your brain might think “that’s not enough!” it’ll thank you later when you don’t feel like you’re going to explode.

Tip #5 – Be sure to do a calorie-burning exercise EVERY DAY!  Run up and down the stairs in your house a few times before work.  Do some crunches or push-ups. Jump up and down on the trampoline for five minutes.  You don’t have to spend an hour at the gym; you just want to get your heart pumping, your blood moving and oxygen flowing. This helps boost your metabolism and can help you burn off the extra calories you consume.

Additional Tips:

  1. Eat breakfast. Don’t try to “save” your calories for your big meal. Not only are you likely to overindulge when you do eat, but your body may be more apt to store your food as fat.  Try Genesis PURE’s 360 Complete Shake, an effective meal replacement offering a combination of vitamins and minerals, protein, carbohydrates, fat, and fiber. It’s ideal for those looking to avoid overeating between meals.
  2. Use a smaller plate. The less food you can put on your plate, the less you will eat.
  3. Eat a salad with your meal. Salad is roughage and helps move the other food through your digestive system.  Be sure to nix the extra toppings, and go with a simple oil-and-vinegar dressing.
  4. Bring your own dish. Rather than trying to decipher what’s in each dish, or being fearful of missing out, bring some healthier options. This is an especially helpful tip for those with food allergies and/or sensitivities. Find some delicious recipes using Genesis PURE products: http://www.genesispure.com/recipes.
  5. Slow down. Time and time again, studies have shown that it takes about 20 minutes for our brains to register it’s full. So slow down, chew your food well, and take time to chat with family or friends before deciding whether you want another slice of pie.
  6. Choose sweets than contain protein. Protein helps offset the sugar in sweets and slows the glucose conversion. For example, grab a handful of nuts with your pie. Make some Almond Butter Mila Cookies or Chocolate Coconut Mila Balls. Find the recipes here: http://www.genesispure.com/recipes.
  7. Eat the dark meat of the turkey instead of the white. Dark meat contains more nutrients and healthier fats, helping you feel full.
  8. Have more yams and less mashed potatoes. Yams or sweet potatoes are considered complex carbohydrates and have a lower glycemic index than mashed.  Enjoy the natural sweetness of baked yams and sweet potatoes instead of candied yams topped with marshmallows, which are full of added sugar.
  9. Save the fruit salad for later. Fruit may be more beneficial and less taxing on the digestive system, if it is eaten alone.  Have this as part of your dessert versus with your meal.
  10. Choose clear, distilled liquor over beer, wine or sugary cocktails. Not only does sugar speed up the absorption of alcohol into the blood stream; but it also contains more calories.  For example, a vodka and tonic would be lower in calories than a rum and coke.
  11. Substitute healthier ingredients for less-healthful ones. For instance, instead of oil use applesauce. Mila (chia seed) can replace eggs in recipes.

If you do choose to indulge at events, choose wisely and make sure you stick with a healthy diet and workout regimen throughout the season to keep those unwanted pounds at bay.  Genesis PURE’s Rally28 weight-loss system can help you stay on track while you develop healthier habits for real, lasting results. Discover how this revolutionary system is making a difference in the lives of so many.

Most importantly, don’t lose sight of what the holiday truly represents. Enjoy the time with your family and friends. Don’t just linger around the appetizers, bar, or dinner table. Reminisce with old friends and make some new ones. Pause and remember why you are celebrating. This is a time to celebrate and spread holiday cheer!

Cheers to a Whole Health holiday season!

6 reasons to embrace a healthier lifestyle in 2017

new-year
“This year I’m going to exercise and lose weight.” Sound familiar? We say it every December, only to fall short a couple of months later. How is 2017 going to be any different? Well, listen closely. Hear that sound? Feet against the pavement during a peaceful jog. The steamy sizzle of a stir fry cooking on the stove. Someone calling your name. It’s the sound of change…healthy change.    

1. It improves confidence.
When self-esteem is high it’s easier to ask for that raise, you feel comfortable wearing that little black dress, and you know you’ll catch the attention of that important date.

confidence

2. Your body will be stronger. You’ll be able to carry that load of laundry up the stairs with breath leftover at the top, and feel like a champion when you can double up on the grocery bags.

strong

3. You’ll be happier. You’ll want to pay it forward at the coffee shop and you just might be caught singing in the shower.

happy

4. You’ll save money. Imagine the cash leftover when you stop buying those sodas, when you walk instead of drive, and when you leave the processed food where it belongs, on Isle 4.

5. You’ll set a good example for others. People will notice that zip in your step, and they’ll likely want to join you in that 5K.

6. You’ll increase your energy. You’ll wake up in the morning wanting to go to work. You’ll want to take that evening walk with the dog. And, you’ll be more apt to eat a healthy breakfast.

You can have it all when you commit.

So let’s do it, together. Rally28 is the weight-loss system with ingredients that are proven to work. You will understand where Rally28 got its name when you look in the mirror and see a new you, when you learn how to eat healthy again, when you discover how easy it is to keep exercise and sleep in your daily life.

Do you hear the rallying cry now?
