Master Cleanse Project
“reset your metabolism - reset your life ”

A couple of weeks ago I talked about the Master Cleanse and pH Alkalizing Dieting I want to share with you some of the results I have personally seen. I have lost over 20 lbs. There was no pain, no struggle, no cravings nothing and the weight keep coming off and my definition is continuing to improve. And speaking of improvements; my energy level is so much better, my sense of balance is better and I feel great. I haven't felt this good for years.

I could go into all of the scientific details about this but, I am sure you would rather spent the day doing something else. But, I will give you the cliff notes.

The Master Cleanse
First and foremost the Master Cleanse is not a diet. Do not do the Master Cleanse if all you are looking to simply lose a few pounds. The Master Cleanse is the precursor to changing the way you eat. It resets your metabolism and wipes your metabolic slate clean so you can start over.

In a nut shell for 7 days you consume anything but a solution made of lemon or lime juice, Organic Grade B maple syrup, cayenne pepper and purified water. It sounds way harder than it really is. But, if you make it through.. and I know you will, you will feel like a new person.

pH Alkalizing Dieting
I have also discussed eating an Alkalizing Diet. I credit much of my success of greatly improving my health with staying on a pH Alkalizing Diet. Essentially, the alkaline diet is opposite the high protein, high fat, low carb diets that are currently in vogue. Most people have never heard of alkaline-acid balance, but many holistic doctors and nutritionists consider a properly balanced diet to be important to optimal health and preventing diseases such as cancer.

The theory behind an alkaline diet is that because our body's pH level is slightly alkaline, with a normal range of 7.36 to 7.44, our diet should reflect this and also be slightly alkaline. An imbalanced diet high in acidic foods such as animal protein, sugar, caffeine, and processed foods tends to disrupt this balance. It can deplete the body of alkaline minerals such as sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, making people prone to chronic and degenerative disease. I need to emphasize the importance of talking to your doctor prior to jumping into the pH Alkalizing Diet and do you research read books on pH Alkalizing Diets.

Hand Holding 101
I want to see all of you be successful with both the Master Cleanse an Alkalizing Diet. Both can be a bit of a challenge at first. But, if you stick with it you will be amazed how your well being will be transformed.

I have set up a web site at http://www.master-cleanse-results.com/ this is your web site. It is there for your success. The next cleanse starts May 6th and runs through May 13th. If you would like to join me and dozens of other register at http://www.master-cleanse-results.com/index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=registers

Once you have created your account you will be able to network with me as well at countless others that will be joining you on the Master Cleanse. Here you will find great suggestions, a personal blog where you can jot down your experience and all the motivation and support you need to make it through.

Have an excellent week.

You Can Only Win The Race If Your Run!

Max Steingart

You must take the first step to win any race. The first step will take some effort and maybe some pain. But after that, everything you have to do is real-life movement.
Once you're moving you must keep moving.

Create a definite plan for carrying out your desires and begin at once, whether you're ready or not, to put your plan into action.

If you can get up the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed. You can only fail if you fail to start.

Winning starts with beginning.

Walking It Off

Walking is the oldest mode of transportation — after all, humans have been doing it for more than 1.5 million years. It's also the cheapest, easiest form of aerobic exercise: All you have to do is open your front door, step outside and get moving. Other pluses: Walking is a great way to relieve tension. And because it's relatively gentle on the joints, people who have had to give up running or other intense sports can turn to walking for their fitness fix.

Starting Out
Forget what you learned as a toddler: You need to relearn how to walk. Being able to hit a 12-minute-mile pace is what separates Sunday strollers from serious walkers. Here's what's involved in good race walking technique:

Walk tall, bend your arms at roughly a 90-degree angle and pump them quickly back and forth, not across your body. Curl your hands into loose fists. Take short, quick steps rather than long strides. Land on your heels and roll forward smoothly, pushing off with your toes. "Think of having rocking feet," suggests Bonnie Stein, a Tampa Bay-area instructor who has taught more than 7,000 people how to race walk.

Target areas:

Walking strengthens the hips, gluteus muscles, quadriceps and hamstrings. At speedier paces, when your heart rate is elevated, you can burn more calories than you might realize as well as improve your endurance. Research suggests that walking can reduce your risk for heart disease and may lower high blood pressure. In fact, a recent study indicates that walking two or more miles a day helped elderly men live longer. Since walking is a weight-bearing activity, it also reduces your risk for osteoporosis.

The Warm-Up and Cool-Down
Since walking is a relatively gentle activity, all you have to do is start. It takes five to 10 minutes to warm up your muscles, get the heart rate elevated and break a sweat (a sign that you're ready to speed up).

Before you end your walk, slow down your pace to allow your heart rate to descend gradually. Be sure to stretch the following major muscle groups after you warm up to prevent injury and again after exercising to promote flexibility and prevent soreness.

When you are walking don't forget to drink plenty of water! What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon or 4 tablespoons of unsweetened cranberry juice to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder.


Don't Put It Off

"Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday."
-- Don Marquis

Most of us struggle with procrastination -- the 'I'll do it later' syndrome. If this is one of your key time wasters, take time to become more aware of your behaviour.

  • Identify what you are procrastinating.
  • Identify why you have not done these things. Seek out your deepest reason.
  • Is there a fear underlying your reason? There is for most people.

We typically procrastinate because of unclear goals, lack of information and/or skills, fear of moving into new territory, fear of failure or success, feeling overwhelmed, lack of time due to over-commitments, poor timing, and general disorganization.

"Much of the stress that people feel doesn't come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they started."
-- David Allen
