Intro to Nutritional Balancing + Zuzana’s New Workout Website

Zuzka/Zuzana Light announced new website is coming soon! I am surprised how many people still are not aware that Zuzana from BodyRock.tv now has her own youtube channel – zuzka light and is making home workout videos again.  Zuzana has been back for a few months now and seems to be adjusting to her new life of living in Los Angeles and working with a camera crew/production company.  I personally cannot imagine the amount of stress and adjustment she has had to face this past year and still she seems very positive.  I just watched the beginning and end of ZWOW #26...

Adrenal EXHAUSTION and Nutritional Balancing!

Adrenal Exhaustion – the cause of FATIGUE and FRUSTRATIONS? For the last 2 years I have been on a mission to save my adrenal glands and help them recover from exhaustion.  I have continuously been amending my diet and lifestyle with the greater purpose of saving my adrenal glands which are SHOT!  This is a very common physical condition that many people are dealing with in our fast paced world.  As a woman inching her way towards the pause – - – having functioning adrenal glands is VERY important. Adrenal Glands:  The tiny little guys on top of the...

Bodyrock.tv 2012 | Tits & Ass – a Real Life Web Drama

Bodyrock.tv 2012 is all Tits & Ass & More like a Real Life Web Drama than a Fitness Website! There, I said it!   It has been quite some time since I visited the fitness website bodyrock.tv.  The Bodyrock.tv of 2012 just does not inspire me and I no longer use it as a recommendation to my clients.  When Zuzana was the face of  bodyrock.tv I told every man, woman and teen to go to bodyrock.tv to learn how they could workout at home more efficiently and could no longer use the excuse:  I don’t have time to workout!  I don’t have time to go to...

Dick Clark Died? WHAT???

Dick Clark Died? Did anyone else do a complete double take when they read the words “Dick Clark Died, today” ???????? – ugh!!!  The more I thought about – - I kind of welled up a little.  Dick Clark, of American Bandstand – - – my youth, my youth.  I feel it slipping away BUT THIS  -  you Mr. Dick Clark, just made death very real to me.  It doesn’t matter if I don’t age. . . I’m STILL going to – - – expire!!!!! Mike Wallace, Dick Clark. . . is someone coming or did I miss #3…. Dick Clark...

Is Sugar Toxic? The Evils of Sugar Message goes Mainstream!

Is Sugar Toxic? I believe it is.  I am so happy to see in the news lately that sugar is finally getting the attention it deserves.  The evils of sugar have been ignored as THE contributor to the decline in American citizen’s health for far too long.  It is so nice to see people like Alec Baldwin admitting sugar was ruining his life and he stopped eating it because he was terrified of becoming diabetic.  I sincerely wish Alec Baldwin’s doctor could convince the masses that they too are allergic to sugar. Sugar is EVIL! There are so many people sadly...

Weight Loss: Alec Baldwin diagnosed Pre-diabetic eats a Low-carb/sugar ...

Weight loss success – Alec Baldwin’s new sugar free diet. Weight loss is not the only thing people are talking about when it comes to Alec Baldwin this week.  The “30 Rock” star confirmed to The Huffington Post Monday that he is engaged to 28-year-old yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas, sparking headlines across the Internet announcing the news. I am happy to hear he happily in love and equally importantly, in my opinion,  Alec Baldwin deserves to be congratulated on is his recent weight loss success due to cutting out all sugar from his diet.  I...

New job stress ::: anxiety. . .

It’s silly really but it happens.  A few weeks ago I was perusing online for local work in nutrition.  I came across a specific ad looking for a nutritionist at a new concept fitness facility – I was intrigued. Sometimes when you are looking for work, it is a little difficult to Imagine Your New Job.  I inquired about the position and I actually got an email back!  I got screened and then went through a really great interview process and learned more about the vision of the company.  I like it!!! And then it kicked in – Fear Starting New Job or...

Nutrition-grg-underwear-fat-loss

I have been slack on posting due to my intense focus and concentration on upping my nutrition practice toolbox.  I’m involved in a fascinating mentorship under a medical doctor who has been specializing in nutritional balancing protocols based on DNA mineral analysis for over 30 years.  I am excited to be learning more from this veteran and the personal teaching mentor I have been assigned.  So here in my life it has been a big old science nerdfest with me soaking up as much new information on nutrition and healing diets that I can find. I know how to evaluate...

Breaking down Nutritional Mistakes: #5

I’m back to continue breaking down the substance behind the top ten nutritional mistakes people tend to make. #5) Using vitamins to “make up for” unhealthy eating habits. There really just is no making up for – - unhealthy eating habits – PERIOD. I personally have been back and forth several times with myself – regarding vitamins and supplements and whatnot.  For the most part I have never been good at taking a vitamin or supplement regularly.  I rarely finish a bottle of anything.  However, in the last month or so I have added a few...

Breaking down Nutritional Mistakes: #6

Today I am continuing my piece on individually breaking down the top ten nutritional mistakes people tend to make. 6) Thinking that “being slim” means you are healthy—using weight as your litmus of “good health”. GUILTY! I would say up until this past summer I was still most concerned about my ‘weight’ and my appearance as my gauge rather than actual considerations of physical health and fitness. I grew up in the mid-west in a home with two dieters – my mother and my grandmother.  My grandmother was diabetic, overweight and kind of on a diet...

Breaking down Nutritional Mistakes: #7

7) Following “government guidelines” or “The Food Pyramid” for healthy eating.  {now the food plate is in town}! Where’s the fat? When I decided to pursue a certification for nutrition I spent a good two years debating on which program I would tackle after I completed my pre-med requirements.  I had my heart set on Bastyr University outside Seattle for many years.  No one wants to hear all the reasons why, in the end I chose a different program, but I will say, reason #1 was that it really is the best program, IMO, for a person on track to become a...

Breaking down Nutritional Mistakes: #8

I picked a perfect time to highlight the worst nutritional mistakes. I am in a tear em’ up kind of mood. So here, I will tackle #8 of the top ten worst nutritional mistakes! #8) Believing that junk food “in moderation” is OK. I was guilty of this one too – - – until I read Nora T. Gedgaudas’ Primal Body – Primal Mind – - – she made some poignant statements regarding this nutritional misnomer.  How often do you say or hear something like:  Oh, now I’m definitely going to have to work out later!  I honestly do not believe...

Breaking down Nutritional Mistakes: #9

A few months back I posted Nora T. Gedgaudas’s Top Ten Nutritional Mistakes and then I promised to get back to the WHY… these are mistakes – - – I am here to follow through and rant some more – AGAIN – - – this stuff gets me fired up! #9) Relying on the media, your doctor or even conventional nutritionists/dietitians to provide accurate nutritional information This one gets to me personally, on several levels.  Licensed health professionals seem to be completely ignorant and holding on to old diet dogmas that clearly are not...

Breaking down Nutritional Mistakes: #10

A few months back I posted Nora T. Gedgaudas’s Top Ten Nutritional Mistakes and then I promised to get back to the WHY… these are mistakes – - – I am here to follow through and rant some more before the day ends!  I am going to count back from ten and address each one in an individual post. #10) Relying on superficial descriptions such as “natural” or even “organic” on labels to determine whether a food is truly healthy. This is where my concept of false healthy eating comes in.  People have convinced their self that because they eat...

Bikini or Underwear: What’s the diff?

And WHO cares????? Apparently, I do! I spent some time this weekend looking into how other people are responding to the new February bodyrock.tv workouts.  In each video so far the host Lisa-Marie is wearing GRG underwear and trainers…ummm, only!  There have been loads and loads of comments and of course many are being deleted – - rude comments should not be allowed anyway – & I don’t consider that censorship! I discovered many female readers like myself who started going to bodyrock.tv when Zuzana was the only host and their recent response...

Grow Food in your Windows!

I am working on a personal venture at the moment and have decided to put together a Kickstarter campaign to raise start-up funding.  If you are not familiar with Kickstarter – I do suggest you check it out.  Not only is ‘it’ a cool idea, there are some incredible and inspiring ideas on the site. The basics of Kickstarter is – you have an idea and a plan – you design a proposal to raise funding for your project and you create a page.  They’re calling it “crowdfunding” – - – I think utilizing social media is...

Xbox Kinect = Fun & Fitness

This past weekend after waiting hours while watching my friend finish a photoshop design project – for his JOB – - – for a famous Director (whose email I now know!) – - – we enjoyed a fantastic dinner and then went back to his apartment so he could show me his xbox kinect!  We’ve known each other for a long time – I knew he would not build me up for something that would not provide…. and provide it did! After getting recognized by the weird purple light – - – doing what the TV screen told me to do – -...

Simply BRILLIANT!!!  Nom Nom Paleo kicks ass once again.  Yesterday she announced her ‘top secret’ side project.  Her comment section is blowing up with – - – EXCITEMENT and AWESOMESAUCE….. the awesomesauce comment made me crack up today.  I don’t have an ipad – but – I’m probably going to win on when nom-nom holds contests for them!  Nom-nom-paleo has made all the difference for me in the last 6 month since I radically changed my diet to a more ancestral influence.  This woman is continuously inspiring people...

Zuzana agrees with ME! Sneaky Fitness Tips!

Hello!  I would genuinely like to thank every person who has visited my blog and to all the wonderful people who have been returning, commenting and interacting with me.  The month of January made me feel like I’m not the crazy lady standing in corner talking to myself ~ THANK YOU!
