Zumba Fitness is Fun! Listen to Founder “Beto” Perez on My Radio Show

If you’re a sugar addict, you may be looking for sugar to get you “high” and to soothe you.

Beto A much more fun, healthier way to calm down and cheer up is Zumba Fitness.

Zumba® is an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, calorie-burning, Latin-inspired, downright-addictive dance-fitness party™, that blends red-hot international music, created by Grammy Award-winning producers, with contagious moves.

Since its inception in 2001, Zumba Fitness — created by “happy accident” by Alberto “Beto” Perez — has grown to become the world’s largest and most successful dance-fitness program, with more than 10 million people of all shapes, sizes and ages taking Zumba classes in 90,000-plus in 110-plus countries.

In today’s special Gab with the Gurus Radio Show, the famous Zumba founder, Beto, will tell you how Zumba can help you, why it’s become so popular, and how you can benefit the American Heart Association or other groups with a “Party Hearty” event in your area.

Learn about this exhilarating workout today on my Gab with the Gurus Radio Show with founder Alberto “Beto” Perez.

Listen live at 2 pm EST, or later, at your convenience.

FYI, I’m a HUGE fan of Zumba myself and am excited about tonight when he will be teaching a class in New York City.

At tonight’s event (at 7 p.m. at the Grand Ballroom in NYC), “Today” show co-anchor and NBC Dateline correspondent Hoda Kotb, along with Zumba Fitness creator and celebrity trainer Beto, will lead Manhattan’s movers and shakers in a flagship Zumbathon charity class as part of Zumba’s Party Hearty™ program.

Party Hearty is a partnership between the dance-party fitness brand Zumba Fitness and the American Heart Associations’ Go Red Por Tu Corazón- the bilingual arm of the Go Red movement- to build awareness on the dangers of heart disease.

Listen to today’s Gab with the Gurus Radio Show anytime.

Let me know when you try Zumba and how you feel afterward!

Institute for Integrative Nutrition: Discover the Joy

IIN n25111276360_7904 Often, I'm asked where I went to school to study health and wellness.

As a grad of the student of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN), it's my pleasure to spread the word about this amazing school, which has a fabulous mission.

The school seeks to play a crucial role in improving health and happiness, and through that process, create a ripple effect that transforms the world.

Because of getting so many questions about IIN from would-be students, I even created a post here on the Sugar Shock Blog to answer them.

But yesterday, I was honored to be joined by IIN staffer Sharon Stevens, who was kind Sharon Stevens210 enough to answer your questions about this school.

She appeared in one of the final programs of Sweeter Holiday Summit, which featured 35+ experts  in health, wellness, personal empowerment, the Law of Attraction, abundance and more. (It was an awesome program — I urge you to check it out and take advantage of the Super Sale.)

  • Anyhow, Sharon kindly answered a bunch of questions about the school to help those of you who may be interested in attending. For instance, she told you:
  • What is a health coach?
  • Who are some the leading instructors at the school? (Hint: Big names in health and wellness.)
  • Where Health Coaches work.
  • How attending the school can be a life-changing experience.
  • What you can expect to learn at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
  • About some graduates of the school, who've gone on to make major contributions.
  • How the program is delivered.
  • How you can take advantage of a special offer if you enroll this week. (You'll receive a special Self Care gift bag.)

Hurrah! Computer Fixed!

Computer_6_tnb After a fabulous weekend getting inspired and exhilarated by the Hay House I Can Do It! Conference in Tampa and listening to such fabulous people as Dr. Wayne Dyer, Cheryl Richardson, Marianne Williamson, Robert Holden and Dr. Brian Weiss, I came back home to a tempermental computer.

Suffice it to say that a virus blasted my computer to smithereens.

For two days, it was downright tough to work, because everythng was SLOW, SLOW, SLOW.

Every little step I took would stall my computer.

Firefox wouldn't stay open — it was shutting down often.

Sending emails was pretty much impossible.

In short, my computer was so sluggish, sputtering and malfunctioning that I was fearful it would just die in the middle of my Sweeter Holiday webinars/teleseminars.

So I had to make a tough decision. I had to cancel last night's programs with Gift Guru Robyn Spizman and acclaimed hypnotherapist Steve G. Jones. Don't worry: we're rescheduling them.

How awful it would have been if my computer had shut down in the middle of a program!

Heart-smiley-face-download For hours — I think it was five, maybe six or seven — my computer guy worked hard at fixing my computer. (He's still catching up.)

Ultimately, he had to take out my hard drive, put in a new one, install a new Windows 7, move over all my data, including the book I'm writing (Beyond Sugar Shock for Hay House), set up my email account again, etc., etc.

Now, I'm hunting for documents and I'm way behind!

But, yeah! I'm now a very happy woman with a super fast computer that's making it possible to get my work done so much quicker!

My computer guy says it's now even better than new. And thankfully, I have lots more space, too, because I was running out of space, too! (Lots of space is NICE and NEEDED since I'm now writing my next book, Beyond Sugar Shock, for Hay House.)

So we're back today for the Sweeter Holiday Summit. Join us tonight's exciting programs at 6 pm Eastern with Steve G. Jones.

Not Enough Sleep Can Trigger Weight Gain

Sleep Yet another study was released, which reveals that if you skip  on sleep, you may gain weight.

This new research, which was discussed in the Annals of Internal Medicine, looked at two groups of people — those with 5 1/2 hours of sleep and those with 8 hours of sleep.

The researchers concluded that “The amount of human sleep contributes to the maintenance of fat-free body mass at times of decreased energy intake. Lack of sufficient sleep may compromise the efficacy of typical dietary interventions for weight loss and related metabolic risk reduction.”

Clearly, the message here is to get enough sleep, and if you do, it’ll be much easier to peel off those pounds.

What an easy way to shed excess weight.

Share your tales of sleep leading to weight loss.
