Why wait until January 1?
It happens to the best of us, especially at the end of summer. All of that hard work that you did to get in "Summer Swimsuit Shape" has faded into the past after countless vacations, cook outs, and weddings. Those celebratory indulgences have added up over an entire summer, and you're left wondering where your summer body has decided to vacation.
But then your self dialogue to get back on track may start to sound a lot like: “I’m just so busy, but when things start to wind down, I’ll get started.” Or, “the holidays are almost here, and the end of the year is only a few months away, so I’ll really get going on my weight loss in the New Year.” However, you don't need to wait for the New Year to start on your fitness goals; In fact, it would be better if you didn't!
It happens to the best of us. A moment in your life when you realize that you’ve let yourself go, and you need to get back on track.

It’s time to leave this viscous cycle behind. The best way to do this is to change your thinking, and never diet again! That’s right. The best way to create a lasting change in your health is to promise yourself, right now, that you will never go on another diet…EVER!

Added sugar is hiding in 74% of packaged foods
We tend to think that added sugar is mainly found in desserts like cookies and cakes, but it's also found in many savory and foods, such as bread and pasta sauce. And some foods promoted as "natural" or "healthy", claiming "Whole Grains", "Real Fruit" and "No High-Frusctose Corn Syrup"are laden with added sugars, compounding the confusion.
Added sugar is the single worst ingredient in the modern diet.
It can have harmful effects on metabolism and contribute to all sorts of diseases.

Trying to lose weight by going on a crash diet is like walking into a gunfight with a sharp stick. You might make a little dent, but in the end, you'll do yourself more harm than good.
When it comes to our health, we now have a bigger problem to deal with...

And today, which marks the 75th Anniversary, Ray Chavez was able to be in Hawaii in person, because he set health goals...and then achieved them.
