Flat Belly Foods for a Better Life

The majority of my clients have always wanted to look great but feel extraordinary.  The struggle for achieving a flat belly has been common among my clients over the last 10 years. What I’ve discovered is that the underlying issues of belly bloat include: gut related issues manifested in symptoms that are autoimmune related.  According to the American Autoimmune Disease Related Association (AARDA) there are 80-100 known diseases and possibly 40 more related. 75% affected are women and autoimmune diseases are the in the top 10 leading causes of death among female children and women in all age groups up to 64 years of age, according to the National Institute of Health (NIH). Autoimmune diseases is when the body turns on otherwise healthy cells and tissues.

Most Common Autoimmune Diseases, and Related Symptoms

The following are most common autoimmune diseases (AD) and AD related symptoms:

> rheumatoid arthritis

> skin diseases: psoriasis, eczema, vitiligo

> celiac

> inflammatory bowel diseases: Chrone’s, Colitis

> Hashimoto’s Disease – thyroid inflammation


> diarrhea and/or constipation

> migraines

> belly bloat

> foggy brain and fatigue

While not having a full-blown AD, I have suffered from some of the above symptoms and so have family and clients. There is a genetic component. Since 2006, when my son was born and had GI problems, I began my research to help heal his gut because the pediatrician told me, “He’ll sort it out.”

My family is now onboard with knowing which foods to avoid and which to consume for better health. My son’s reflux, constant loose bowels and ear infections are gone.

Flat Belly Foods Training FIRST 7 Days:

Fast forward 10 years, I’ve created a system of Flat Belly Foods + dense nutrient supplementation + restorative exercise + education and accountability. It’s my Flat Belly Foods Training Course, which is delivered over 21 days in my Online Learning Lounge.

The above graphic was something I mashed up to share with the course participants.  But, the scale isn’t the end of the story, at all.

Great Health is True Wealth

The inches and weight loss are impressive but what is even more exciting to me is the greater health of all my students.

Some common reports in week one: belly bloat, healthy gut, skin and increased energy are all high on the list from the most recent graduates of my Flat Belly Foods Training Course.

If smart people have the education to upgrade their health and habits to the next level we’re all greater for it.

Mainstream Health Experts Hinder Greater Health

For too long, mainstream health and fitness experts: doctors, nutritionists, fitness professionals etc., have pushed food plans, magazine articles and news pieces about foods that are actually keeping people inflamed, bloated, sick with autoimmune diseases and related symptoms.  I know that’s a bold statement and I’m ok if you have another opinion. I used to cringe since I was one of those folks.  Now, I know better. My family, friends and clients are enjoying better health, mental clarity, more energy, reduced cellulite, and digestion relief.

Results Get Personal

Flat Belly Foods Training has increased my energy and productivity and made me more confident in my own skin. After 2 kids and now in my late 40s, I can happily say that I feel I’m living my best years with mental clarity, clear skin and a flat belly.

I have my list of foods and I know WHY they work.  After three years of my prodding, my husband got on board over 6 months ago.  He is at his healthiest weight and his skin is super clear. Occasionally, he used to have acne on his back and now his skin hasn’t had any outbreaks. My clients who used to be chronic snackers – always looking for the next carb fix – are now in control with their sugars and food choices. Yay!

Meal Plan vs Food Education and Control

In June of 2015, I launched Flat Belly Foods Training to educate and share ‘the why’ behind the foods that aid in better health and yield a flat belly, clearer skin and help alleviate autoimmune related symptoms listed above. . In Flat Belly Foods Training Course I share the mistakes that most people make when trying to ‘clean up’ their diet. A big mistake is caloric restriction, while still including of inflammatory foods.  I’m both a teacher and a coach. So I educate you with the information that will help you make excellent future choice and feel great!

I often have people reaching out to me for a meal plan. And, for years I would write them up.  However, that is a band-aid. So, if you want another meal plan ‘Google’ it. But, if you want to have more peace, be empowered to know which foods to select when dining out or walking the grocery aisles that will keep your belly flat, hips lean, improve health then you need to invest in your education for 21 days and take care of you so that you can take care of others you love.
