Eat like a 'Superbod'

Explaining that 80 percent of weight loss is based on diet, she says that it is time to pay more attention to what's on your plate if you are preparing your body. Herself sporting an enviable figure, Nadine was tapped by Century Tuna to design the Superbods Diet as part of Century Tuna Superbods SuperChallenge 2014.
Nadine is a US-certified fitness nutritionist who designed the Detox-in-a-Bottle. Initially developed in 2009 for her celebrity clients, the program became hugely popular. The soups and juices had since been standardized and are now being prepared by her partners and distributors.
She also dished out a few tips on how to eat like a 'Superbod': Beware of the fattening culprits; Eat more vegetables; Look for the 'slimming elements'; and Eat right, at the right time.

The real Cohen
They say imitation is the highest form of flattery, and that is probably the case for the Cohen's Lifestyle Program, whose great success has spawned many versions and "knockoffs." But the only real Cohen is exclusively offered by the Cohen's Lifestyle Centre (CLC), based in The Fort, and founded in 2009 by three women: executive director Dr. Angela Rodriguez-Bandola, chief executive officer Barbara Young and director Regina Chuavon.
Based on every client's unique blood profile, the CLC develops a personalized eating plan and teaches clients the right eating and sleeping habits to optimize the performance of the organs vital for metabolic processes. Without requiring exercise, injection, or intake of pills, the program delivers fast results, with clients averaging a loss of up to eight to 10 lbs a month.

Nurture the Natural Way
While we take great care in the food we prepare for our little ones, parents often forget that our bodies also get nourishment by absorbing products that we put on the skin. Babies and kids have 20 to 30 percent thinner skin than adults, which make them more vulnerable to absorbing the unwanted toxins from the products they are exposed to. Make it a habit to check the ingredient list for these no-no chemicals you should steer clear of when buying your children's personal care products: Parabens; Phtalates; Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or SLS; Fluoride; Talc and Detergents.
The good news is that many parents are now discovering natural products are the smartest choice in protecting the health and wellness of their families. A crowd favorite for these careful parents is Tiny Buds Natural Baby Products, which promises a commitment to making baby and mommy essentials from only the finest natural ingredients and extracts to safely nourish babies' health.
