BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:

Grain-Free Way

Snellville Ga

ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
DISCLAIMER: I am not a doctor, nurse or any other medical practitioner or professional. If you are sick you should consult your doctor!

I consider myself a wellness coach or health advocate for a grain-free lifestyle. As such I like to host various workshops that focus on health and wellness.

Becoming healthy what does that look like for you?

I believe that if we want to address weight loss, or lack of, we must first address a new Way of Eating (W.O.E) My motto is: "Change your food, you change your life!"

Personally it took me 15 years, and over 100 lost pounds to make sure that, at age 60, ill-health would not plague me. The best part is that I did it 100% naturally without the use of “lotions or potions”.

The Grain-free way of eating (W.O.E.) is not a magic pill, but if you want good health and to slim down without eating like a bird or working out like a beast, just include a little moderate exercise, (a 20 minute brisk walk 3 to 5 times a week is all you need), if you want learn to adopt a whole new way of enjoying pizza and fried chicken!

I am your Coach for Health/Wellness. An Advocate for those who want to get to that place of Health, Healing and Hotness again!

THE STORY:
At the ripe young age of 45, I found myself getting bigger by the day gaining weight while working 10 hour days in Auto Sales. Being top and staying on top in a “guys” field is not always easy.. But I endured 2 years in the business. I found myself shoving pizza and Chinese food in my mouth on the go. Then home to bed and back again. They even had a gym at the dealership I, used sometimes haha’ Fast Forward left them to obtain A License in Real Estate. As a Realtor, I needed a professional head-shot for my business card. . Once I saw the picture My heart almost stopped! I thought to myself, I, look like my Mother, not bad, if I were 74. Lol, But truly this was no laughing matter, Mother and I, both vowed to start Curves in a couple of weeks.! I did , she did not. Sadly I lost my 74 year old Mother , 4 months later to Heart disease, She'd had a quadruple bypass 10 years earlier...

Crushed but vowing to continue, even though I'd lost my biggest Cheerleader. Press On! she would say if she were still here! So I Press On, and over the course of the next few years I workout, lose, gain it back, Take a Pill lose it, and all the while gaining a little more, lose a little more, you know the Rabbit hole. To name just a few . Weight Watchers Points, Slim Fast, Amino, Scarsdale, Liquid diet, Low Fat everything diet, Jazzercise , Eat 4 your Blood Type, Atkins Diet. Zumba, Crossfit . As you See DIETS don't work! Without the proper nutrition to go with a work out, it is nearly impossible to achieve weight loss and good health! It is paramount to your success! I Never lost it and kept it off, until now! Once I discovered "Wheat Belly" written by Dr William Davis,, and discovering the whole Gut flora thing, I was In!
I was amazed at what a Grain-Free lifestyle will do! In as little as 10 days!

You see as a black woman who has struggled most of my life with my weight, I'd never had any issue with my BP readings in 58 years, Well 2 years ago, you see I, was in a Pre Hb state. I've tried to be on top of my BP because it ran, Dr's say, in our family. Well determined not to be put on any Rx Now or Ever! I, would need to adopt something I could understand the physiology as well as psychology surrounding this new thing I needed. Something that just makes Sense. Sense for a lifetime!
So this health thing, My health thing! had to become my studies, what my Doctors were saying wasn’t getting it done, but, if I wanted a pill to help she. My Dr. would always gladly accommodate! I stopped that years ago! I just want to do it natural, I;m thinking? must be a way. Something Easy Peasy so I, read everything,! watched it! internet, book after book, Dr’s, studies, trials etc. That’s when I came across Dr William Davis, who also wrote “Undoctored! How to become smarter than your doctor! Along with my studies at Health Sciences and Technology Academy! Continuing Ed.

Getting my own health back on track bp 120/80. Creating My Vision Board allowed me to map my Health success. It set me on this course of sharing the good news! It Is Not Your Fault! Besides me, I've had the pleasure of helping a handful of a clients, that have lost and has kept off the weight, under my tutelage using the Grain-Free Way of Eating! for over a year now!
