Road Map for Successful Health and Wellness Outcomes

Hi, been a while hope all is well with you?  I have just arrived home this week afer a fantastic 10 day holiday.  Drove from Toronto to Fort Myers Beach and back.  It was really nice to be away, sun, sand and ocean along with great company.  But I digress!

While I was driving I had a thought about road maps.  You see we had a very detailed map in the car with us.  We knew exactly what highways to take, how long in time we would be on that road and how many kilometers each highway we would be driving on was.  When we started we actually knew exactly how many miles we were going to travel.  We knew the outcome before it happened.  Awesome, right?

Well it got me to thinking that this is a great necessity to have in life.  How many times do we start anything and don’t really know what the outcome will be.  Actually most of us don’t even know what we want the outcome to be?  So how do we get there?  Throw as much stuff on the wall as possible and see what sticks? That is how I was raised.  No one taught me about goals.  No one taught me about outcomes however I did play sports and in sports there is always an outcome.  You win or you lose.  Same in business.  Same in Weight Reduction.  Same in Fitness.

When I was working on reducing my weight many years ago I actually began with the outcome in sight.  I would decide how many sizes I would reduce by in what time frame.  Then I would work toward that.  It was easy, I could see my results over the weeks getting closer to my outcome and it was exciting!  I was moving in a direction that I wanted to go.

So where are you now?  Do you know what you want as your outcome in your Health, Wellness, Fitness, and/or Weight Reduction plan?

This is where you must start.  The New Year is almost here now is a great time to consider what you want and begin to exactly plan the outcome, then take massive action to get there.

Digestive Problems can be helped with In-Liven

A number of years ago I was having big problems with digestion.  At that time I was was introduced to a Certified Organic Personal/Wellness Product line to use.  In fact I have been using this product line for almost 4 years now.  There are a couple of products that are my favourites.  I purchase a Certified Organic Mint Toothpaste and Certified Organic Deodorant each and every month.

Now over the last couple of years my hair has turned really white!  Not grey, not salt and pepper, white.  So I thought it might be from digestion problems. And with that I began to take the In-Liven Superfood Probiotic and to my surprise and delight my hair is getting darker.

Health really does begin in the gut and so here is some info on my new favourite product from One Group.

Exercise and Aging, is there a connection?

Ok I really do like to exercise.  I do something everyday for myself.  I life weights, move kettlebells, ride a bike, go for a walk or run outside, in the summer I cut grass for many hours, and for the most part I enjoy it all.  Exercise or movement makes me feel alive!  It is challenging physically and mentally.  And keeping active helps control weight which is definitely important to slow the aging process.

I am always looking for  information that will help me and my clients age better!  And what I mean by that is to be healthier as we get older.  To me there would be nothing worse than getting older and being unable to enjoy life.  So I keep moving to be able to keep moving.

Here is a quick video on the 7 Deadly Causes of Aging and it is quite interesting.  Dr Aubrey de Grey, Chairman Chief Science Officer, Methusalah Foundation discusses the 7 deadly causes of aging

[cincopa AUPAawKLJ88D]

Dr de Grey discusses Resveratrol and the possibilities.  Resveratrol comes from Red Wine and in fact is called the French Paradox.  The French drink Red Wine and tend not to suffer from the Diseases of Aging like North Americans.  Thus the French Paradox.   I have been taking Resveratrol for the past many years in a product  called Genesis with X’Tranol 24  I like it very much and because he included it in the video it is my feeling to include it here.

Anti Aging!

As a part of my business I provide leading edge nutritional products and have used these products for years.  The products are from Symmetry Direct and I have used them and marketed them for over 16 years.  The products have been tremendous for me and my family.  Helping us to be healthier, get fewer colds, flu, have more energy and keep us prescription free from the common diseases of aging.

So I was very interested when I picked up the new Tonic magazine and there is an full page article on Super-Oxide-Dismutase.  According to nutraceutical researcher Ryan Foley “Super-Oxide-Dismutase (SOD) is the most important Primary Antioxidant” he goes to say ” as it is the only one capable of neutralizing the most damaging free radical: super-oxide radical”    Foley says: ” As we age, our bodies ability to manufacture SOD at the cellular level diminishes.  We also get SOD from the food we eat, but typically at very low concentrations.  The super-oxide radicals overtake our ability to neutralize them, so if you’re interested in fighting off the symptoms of aging and disease it is important to supplement your intake of SOD.”

Foley continues to say ” Within the past few years, nutraceutical researchers have found a way to adequately provide a safe oral form of SOD that is vegatable based.”

Symmetry has SOD & Glutathione plus Resveratrol check out this:

This is so very cool!  It is great when I represent a company that is providing leading edge products.  When local articles are written on leading edge ingredients that we have had in our products for a few years that is even more cool.  Staying on the leading edge of nutritional products in this industry is what we are providing to the world!  Genesis with X’Tranol 24 is exactly that product.  Try it now!

Stay healthy,


There is a thought in certain circles that money is simply energy!  And depending how one feels about this energy shows up in all different ways in life!   I find this most fascinating and a few years ago was fortunate to go to a T.Harv Eker workshop, Millionaire Mind Intensive.  This seminar was a full 3 days and lived up to its name Intensive.  The hours for the seminar were in fact very long, very intense yet the learning was powerful and long lasting.  I use a lot of the info I learned to this day.

There is a belief that if your money is in a mess so is your health. I get the idea of it if money is energy and it is a mess life will be a mess and that is the purpose of posting a money topic in my wellness and fitness blog.

There are a number of dates for the Millionaire Mind Intensive Seminars in North America from now until the end of December.  The tickets for general admission are FREE.

You can order your tickets through this link:

It is an awesome weekend of learning.  My first MMI I was able to take care of my debt and put money down for a condo within a very short period of time.

To your health through creating a clearer vision for wealth,

What is quality?

OK so I have posted some solid info on Metabolic Typing.  I personally decide each day to eat for my Metabolic Type, Protein Type.  However when I was first introduced to Metabolic Typing I was well let’s say “freaked out”  by what I was reading.  Can you imagine reading that fat, meat would be OK and even healthy!  It was so opposite to what we hear in the media, or how I was trained up to that point.  So at that time I put the info aside and continued on the way Society suggests we eat.

Fast forward a few years, Digestive problems began, I took HLC 1. revisited the Metabolic Typing, started eating for my Protein Type and within 2 days my digestion began to improve!  Really quite remarkable.  And to this day 4 years later when I stick to the Metabolic Typing program I feel great.

One of the other things I do for myself is take supplements!  I eat organic or local with both my meat and vegetable/fruits.  For me it is simply a matter of being sure I am getting all my nutrition daily.  My choice for supplements is Symmetry Direct .  I have been using Symmetry’s products for over 16 years.  They are very high quality, I get them delivered to my home each and every month.  I actually like them so much that I sell them to clients, family, friends and develop a global business with them.

Here is a quick video explaining the quality of Symmetry’s products:

Metabolic Typing, Part 2

Metabolic Typing is a powerful diet that helps clients customize their diets to be free of food cravings, reach ideal weight, have high energy and prevent disease.

I say customize their diets because we as humans are all different.  We may have similar characteristics as a type within the Metabolic Typing Diet however we will work to customize what is the best for you.

Metabolic Typing and Eating Right For Your Type

In my Personal Training and Wellness business I provide a number of services for my clients.  One of those services is Metabolic Typing.  What is Metabolic Typing?  “Metabolic Typing is a groundbreaking technology that takes the guesswork out of nutritional science.  It is a system you or anyone can use to cut rapidly through the information glut of confusing fact and opinion in order to identify your own unique nutritional requirements.”

I am a Protein Type and within 2 days of eating for my type I began to feel like a different person.  The digestive challenges I had been having at that time disappeared.

Metabolic Typing is a science that with Dr. Weston Price in the ’30’s.  He was a dentist who began to see so many Americans with extensive tooth decay, and gum disease.  He also found structural problems like small dental palates crowded with poorly developed and crooked teeth.

Here is Part 1 of Bill Wolcott discussing Metabolic Typing: [grandflv id=205 w=520 h=304 autoplay=false]
