  1. Want to get in shape for summer?

    If you’re over 50-years-old, we’ve got a no-fail fat loss plan to get you there. Follow these five steps to transforming your body over the next eight weeks.

    1. Go Gluten Free: Going gluten-free for a couple of months is such a simple way to accelerate fat loss. Just think of saving yourself from all the extra carbs and calories you’d otherwise be eating. And it’s not so bad, once you get used to it. Wrap sandwiches and burgers in lettuce or on top of a pile of greens.

    2. Exercise 5x’s Each Week: Take the next couple of months to focus your efforts in the gym. Train as if you were preparing yourself for an athletic event, with the mindset that every workout is essential in seeing you through your goal. Make a log of each time that you exercise, noting the duration, intensity, and activity.

    3. Go Sugar-Free: Sugar is the biggest thing holding you back when it comes to dropping fat and getting lean. And not just refined sugar. I’m talking about all sugars. Cut out all sweeteners and limit your intake of sweet fruits. Sugar-free will be hard at first, especially if you have a sweet tooth, but the rapid change in your body is a fantastic incentive to keep going.

    4. Enjoy Protein and Veggies: Enough about all the things you can’t eat, let’s talk about what you can eat. Your meals should be a variety of protein and veggies. For protein stick with organic, hormone-free meat that is roasted, baked or grilled. For vegetables, avoid starchy veggies like potatoes, and instead stick with an assortment of colorful, fiber-filled veggies.

    5. Join A Functional Fitness Program: The quickest way to get your body into tip-top shape is to join a functional fitness program. A Functional Aging Specialist can get you into the best shape of your life, with safe and effective 30-minute workouts explicitly designed for the aging body.

    So there you have it, five simple steps to your BEST body before summer vacation!

    Remember, the next eight weeks are going to pass whether you jump on board with a fitness plan or not. So, you’re going to spend the time getting older and more out-of-shape, OR you could buckle down and finally make 2019 a transformational year of moving better, feeling better and aging actively.

  2. Healthy Recipe, Blueberry Walnut Pancakes

    These grain-free, sugar-free, dairy-free pancakes from the Cleveland Clinic are a guilt-free treat. They’re easy to make, and the whole family will love them.

    • 3 large omega-3 eggs
    • ¾ cup almond milk
    • ½ tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • ½ cup coconut flour
    • ½ teaspoon baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon baking soda
    • Pinch of sea salt
    • ¼ cup roughly chopped walnuts
    • coconut oil, for greasing the skillet (about ¼ cup)
    • 1 pint fresh blueberries
    • ½ cup arrowroot
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


    1. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and then add the almond milk, lemon juice, and vanilla. Whisk until well-blended. In a separate bowl, mix the coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and arrowroot. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, ¼ cup at a time, while continuously whisking. Once combined, gently fold in the walnuts.
    2. Grease a large skillet and place over medium heat until hot. Use a ladle to pour 3-inch pancakes onto the skillet. Cook until bubbles appear, then flip. The pancake should cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes. Repeat with rest of the batter. Add a tablespoon or more of coconut oil to the hot griddle, as needed.
    3. Make a blueberry sauce by simmering the blueberries in a small saucepan with 2 tablespoons of water for 10 minutes before serving.
    4. To serve, place 3 pancakes on a plate and top each stack with the blueberry sauce.
