Bringing you more.... Master's in Nutrition from UB!

I have been accepted into the Master's in Human Nutrition program at the University of Bridgeport. This program differs from other programs in that its focus is on functional medicine and its growing value in the prevention of disease. Graduates are enabled to provide customized diet and nutrition recommendations that are effective.... this is not your typical calorie counting! Doctors, Chiropractors, Nurses, Pharmacists and other Health Care Professionals have graduated from this program. I met many of them at the IAACN in Baltimore last weekend who strongly encouraged me to take on this program.

Community Garden with United Way

On Tuesday, June 21st I joined a group of volunteers from the United Way and various business to clear a plot of land for a Community Garden in Bridgeport. Three hours of weeding wasn't so bad when I turned around and saw the progress that we had made. Before I had to leave, we had already completed our first planting box. Later that day I brought my son to see the garden and to see the progress that had been made. To my surprise there were still people there at 9:30pm! It warms my heart to see the improvements others can make with hard work and a love for community.

Water, water, water

An estimated 75% of the population are chronically dehydrated. So how much water is enough water? Recent studies suggest you drink half your body weight in ounces. For a 150lb person that is 75 ounces of water.
 
Water helps our bodies in many ways:
  • Detoxification
  • Nutrient absorption and digestion
  • Increased blood circulation
  • Lubrication of the joints
  • Better immunity
 
Water for fat loss.. yes... it helps in losing weight. When the kidneys don't get enough water, they push their work onto the liver.

Spring is here... time for a cleaning!

Spring cleaning and I'm not just talking about the house or the yard! I'm talking about you and your body, time for a detox, a change, something! I am now offering online nutritional guidance and workout programs. My time is limited with my new job a University of Bridgeport and my current clients, but I don't want to leave anyone in the dust. E-mail or call me for more information.

Goals for 2011

In the year 2011, I have reviewed my previous goals and realized I havve made great progress. I am anticipating participating in my first Warrior Dash in August of this year, beginning my Master's in Nutrition at The University of Bridgeport and trying out some 5k's throughout the summer. I am excited to begin this year in a new light, as many personal goals of mine have finally been achieved and I look forward to creating more and challenging ventures.... as we only have one life to live, may as well live it!
