My goal is to provide you with the tools necessary to execute your healthy weight loss plan successfully.

For a healthy weight loss and lifestyle enhancement program to be successful, three very specific criteria must be met:
1. The program needs to be simple to use.
2. The program needs to be medically safe and scientifically sound in its principles.
3. The program needs to be sustainable. In other words, you must be able to adapt the program into your lifestyle.

Once a program is found to have met these key fundamental criteria, the combination of the following essential health principles must represent the core values of the program:
* Essential Nutrition
* Essential Exercise
* Essential Health Habits

Extracted from these essential elements of optimal health are the specific program components that include:
* Properly combined meals of protein, carbohydrate, and healthy fats.
* 30 – 45 minutes of an individualized aerobic exercise routine 3 days per week
* Adequate water consumption for your body weight every day.
* Supplements of Vitamins A, C, E along with calcium every day.
* Adequate amount of sleep daily
* Appropriate skin care regimen for your specific skin type

By making small, but consistent changes in your health choices, you can single handedly bring about major lifestyle changes and increase your life expectancy by as many as 10 – 15 years or more, decrease your body fat to a healthy level, and eliminate unnecessary body weight. In other words, you’re going to have more energy, look younger, feel stronger, look leaner, and generally feel better than you can ever remember feeling in your life.
