We're heading into the last long weekend of the summer! Where has the time gone? It has been an exciting and busy time!!
It will be great to relax with family and friends as we enjoy the last vacationing weekend before back to school or back to work.
After some moderate indulging with family and friends this weekend, we'll be doing a 24 hour fast.
For those who find the 24hr fast too much or too long, you can try the 16/8, no eating after 8pm on Sunday and not eating until 12 noon on Monday.
I'll be posting throughout the day, letting you know the progress. The 24hr fast will start 8pm Sunday Sept 3/17 until 8pm Monday Sept 4/17
Here is the link for the bullet proof coffee. If you don't drink coffee, tea can be used.

If you're considering bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT for short) you may have asked around and heard different opinions from friends, family, and even practitioners. There are many myths floating around about the treatment. The 3 most common myths are:
Myth #1 : Only women benefit from BHRT
This is untrue. As men age, they too experience declining hormone levels, namely testosterone. This is called andropause and unlike menopause this happens gradually after a peak period in a man's early 30s. It includes symptoms such as fatigue, loss of libido and weight fluctuations so a customized BHRT treatment can help balance and restore natural testosterone levels.
Myth #2 : All hormone replacement treatments are the same
Unlike synthetic hormone replacement therapy, BHRT takes the specific person's needs. Rather than this one-size-fits-all approach, your BHRT program will be tailored to meet your unique hormonal needs.
Myth #3 : BHRT treatments won't address weight
After menopause begins, lower hormone levels mean less energy to expend on physical activity. A customized bio-identical hormone replacement therapy program can help balance your hormones to give you the extra help reaching your weight loss and maintenance goals.

Exercise for 20 minutes a day and eat sensibly is the golden equation for weight loss. But this one size fits all mantra doesn't ring true for everyone and doesn't take other major factors into consideration.
As we age, our bodies change from our mid 30s to our late 50s, and that 20 year period sees a gradual reduction in hormone production. Hormones are like little chemical messengers that give orders to your body that can affect weight gain or weight loss. The eat less, exercise more equation is therefore only applies to someone with a perfect hormonal balance.
If you have:
- Weight gain in the belly, hips and thighs
- High BMI
- Increased appetite or cravings
- Difficulty losing weight with diet and exercise
A customized BHRT treatment plan may be the balancing factor to help you with age related hormonal symptoms and to better your chances of losing weight. Get in touch with us and find out how your customized BHRT can help you lose weight and feel better!
