Is Sitting Killing You?

Will You Move More and Sit Less With Me?

Do you, like millions, sit for hours and hours?

Up until yesterday, I was one of those, who sat far too much.

You see, I’m writing this blog post while swaying my hips, doing squats, balancing on one foot after another, and/or dancing to cool music in front of my new awesome Standing Desk in my new place.

Bye-bye, back pain!

Hello, happier, healthier, slimmer body.

No more sitting for hours on end while in the flow and writing books, talks and blog posts.

You see, for all my intentions to be a healthy, active example, I’ve been naughty for years.

All that sitting has injured my back twice — we’re talking major pain — while I’ve been on deadline for my books, Sugar Shock and Beyond Sugar Shock.

Are you like I was up until recently?

If you sit a lot for work, as most do, you need to learn about the deadly consequences.

Sitting can shorten your life — even if you exercise.

Yes, a recent study in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that there’s a direct relationship between time people spent sitting and their risk of early mortality, according to the researchers, who studied nearly 8,000 adults.

In short, the researchers found that as your total sitting time increases, so does your risk of an early death.

Or, to put it more bluntly, the longer you sit, the sooner you die.

The scientists concluded:  “Both the total volume of sedentary time and its accrual in prolonged, uninterrupted bouts are associated with all-cause mortality, suggesting that physical activity guidelines should target reducing and interrupting sedentary time to reduce risk for death.”

So will you join me? Let’s sit less and move more together.

Spread the word! Join the Sit Less, Move More Movement.

Why You Should Become a Cravings Ninja™, Too

How I Became The Cravings Ninja™ -- Cravings-Crushing Monday: Get Ready for Peaceful Battle Success Over Sugar & Processed Carbs

Whenever I meet people (such as at recent Bulletproof and Tony Robbins conferences), people are excited and intrigued when they discover that people refer to me as The Cravings Ninja™.

Almost always, they want to know more.

It’s time to explain the phrase I was given about three  years ago.

To begin, my goal now as  Your Cravings Ninja™, is to lead you to Sweet Victory  over those tempting sugary, fatty junk foods.

As The Cravings Ninja, I’m here to guide you to easily, effortlessly, stomp out your wild, irrational, overpowering urges for nutrient-deprived snacks and meals.

Why do people call  me The Cravings Ninja™?

By its definition, a ninja is someone, who excels in a particular skill of activity.

Those mythical 12th century warriors infiltrated and went to battle against particular enemies.

Although ninjas often had to be violent,  I’m here to lead you into peaceful battle against sugary, fatty, salty non-foods.

Think about it. You can try umpteen diets, but you’ll never shed pounds and then keep them off for good unless you Crush Your Cravings for Good™.

So here’s how I became The Cravings Ninja.

Although I’ve been sugar-free eating minimal carbs (always quality carbs) since 1998, it took my having  Crazy Cravings™ and a Carb Relapse in late 2012 after my Mom passed away for me to really “get” this concept more deeply and fully than ever before.
