Next, know what you’re eating.  

Carbohydrates are essential. But you want to focus on complex carbs, like brown rice,  millet flours and green leafy vegetables. Consume less simple carbs which come from bread, white rice and added sugars.

Proteins are essential for building muscle, tissue, cartilage and skin. Foods like fish, milk products, and white meat are healthy choices of protein. Protein helps burn off fats in the body, too!

Fats, some, are essential. Things like omega-3 fatty acids, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are beneficial. We get these from fish and olive oil. Minimize saturated fats which come from packaged foods, junk food, milk, cheese, cocoa, kernel oil, fatty cuts of animal fat, pork, lamb and beef (lean cuts of these are available), chocolates, fried foods, etc.

Vitamins and Minerals – women need different amounts of these than men. For instance, women need more vitamin D and vitamin C as well as iron and calcium.

I think we all know how important it is to drink water and stay hydrated throughout the day. It helps with losing excess weight and it keeps the body running properly. I’m guilty of not drinking enough. Try laying out three packets of ENERGY drink mix every morning and commit to drinking them by late afternoon. That will take care of about 40% of the eight, 8-oz. glass-a-day recommendation.

Don’t overlook fiber. Fiber serves as an appetite suppressant. It also enhances bowel function. Mila® chia is a superior plant-based source of fiber and can be used in a lot of recipes.

Third, get on the PURE Detox bandwagon!

People are seeing incredible results with PURE’s Detox programs!

Carefully selected products by PURE can help you achieve your weight-loss goals by nutritionally supporting the body’s natural health-maintaining processes. Follow the program for seven days, or if you desire a deeper detox, continue with the 28-day program for additional results. You’ll create sustainable habits and experience life-changing results.

Of course, exercise! It’s harder in the winter to exercise outdoors, unless you belong to a gym. Gym alternatives can be climbing stairs, using a stationary bike or a home treadmill and following exercise videos. Call on a friend to take a brisk walk together. Take time out of your work day to walk around the block.

Cheers to a Whole Health day!

Don’t just make resolutions, achieve them

Welcome to 2019! Are you one of the many Americans who make New Year’s resolutions? Are you successful at achieving them? Research says that more than 50% of people who make New Year’s resolutions generally keep them for the first two weeks, but by the end of the first month that number declines and at six months many people have completely abandoned those resolutions.

Any guesses as to what the number-one New Year’s resolution was in 2018? Losing weight topped the list. How many of you agree and even have it on the top of your resolution list for 2019? I know it has frequently topped my list. Do you wonder how and if you can succeed with your resolution? You can, and I’ll explain.

Dieting versus healthy eating

Losing weight can feel like a never-ending cycle. Sometimes it seems like you try every “diet” plan and workout on the market, but they turn out to be failures. There is a difference between healthy eating and dieting. Dieting makes you hungry. Diets are temporary and often unrealistic.

A philosophy of ours at PURE, called Cleanse, Balance, Build, Focus, teaches that when you give the body what it needs, it will be able to do what it was created to do. In other words, if you feed your body health and wellness, it will provide health and wellness in return. If you feed the body garbage, well, that’s what will come out.

Cleanse, Balance, Build and Focus with CORE4

Begin with a strong foundation. The products in CORE4 help set the stage for optimal wellness. Start by cleansing your body of internal and environmental toxins. Next balance your mood and stress levels. Then, build key nutrients and provide focus and mental well-being.

  • Cleanse your body with HealthTrim® Cleanse. Our world is swarming with toxins. They are in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. And, they’re not just physical. We have mental toxins, too. Check out PURE’s Detox Program below.
  • Balance your body with GoYin. Every system in the body strives to maintain status quo. When something is out of balance, our bodies will do what’s necessary to get that balance back. This isn’t just about physical balance, but emotional, mental and spiritual balance, too.
  • Build your body with Daily Build. We must provide our body with the basic nutrients needed to be strong and healthy. Also, one size NEVER fits all. You must find and give your body what it needs to be healthy.
  • Focus with ENERGY. You are doing this for you; not for someone else. You must get healthy for you, and you can do this when you focus.

PURE Detox Program

A way to jump-start the cleanse/detoxification process is to start with the Detox program and then you go into CORE4. Or, if you started with the CORE4 and you are ready to take your detoxing a step further then we recommend participating in PURE’s Detox program. Successful weight loss consists of healthy eating and regular physical activity. Jump-start your journey with a combination of herbs and botanicals that help facilitate the removal of toxins from the body.

Begin with a 7-day detox, or if you desire a deeper detox, continue with the 28-day program for a full body reset. Once you see the difference it makes, you’ll be hooked. This program works because you’re feeding your body plant-based, whole food nutrition. You are eating and creating sustainable habits. You will experience life-changing results

This is your year. It’s your time not just to lose the weight, but to become the healthy person you were created to be. Use PURE’s philosophy combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise to lose weight and keep it off. Make that your resolution for 2019.

Weight loss results may vary based on individual users. Products by PURE are designed to be used in conjunction with a sensible diet and regular exercise. Persons interested in using products by PURE or programs to maintain healthy weight should consult with their health care provider prior to beginning any new nutrition and exercise program.

In the fast lane with Gray Gaulding

Gray Gaulding, a professional race car driver and PURE Independent Business Owner (IBO) takes his nutrition seriously. You could say he puts it in the driver’s seat.

At the age of 20, Gray is one of the youngest NASCAR** drivers in the field. He combines his love of racing with entrepreneurship, as he started using products by PURE in August 2018 and hasn’t turned back. He represents the PURE brand both on and off the track each week through the Number 08 Chevrolet team. He will do so for the entire Xfinity season and select Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races throughout 2019, debuting at the Daytona 300 next February.

Gray knows the importance of nutrition and hydration to help him perform at his peak. Racing for hours inside his car, which can get very hot, requires a lot of liquids before race time. On top of that, he’s wearing gloves, a helmet and a leather jacket. Gray takes GPS Hydrate to keep those vital fluids, electrolytes and nutrients flowing, a product that also helps him focus and ultimately drive faster.*

Along with the mental aspect of driving a race car, it requires physical strength, too. When you wrestle a car around a track at high speeds, you need focus. There are other cars going just as fast right next to you and things can happen very quickly. To help him withstand these conditions, he puts himself through intense physical training. The mental strength to focus on everything in his car and on the track at the same time is vital to his performance.

“I start off each day with a shot of GoYin in the morning to give me the daily nutrients I need and to get my mind and body balanced before I get started,” he said. “I enjoy the 360 Complete Shake after a nice workout in the evenings. It’s a great product to provide me with protein after breaking down my muscles from intense workouts. But the best part is that the shakes taste amazing!”

In addition to GPS Hydrate, GoYin and 360 Complete Shake, Gray also consumes ENERGY and the entire GPS product line.

Daren Hogge, PURE CEO, shared, “We are thrilled to have Gray join the PURE family as an IBO. It is an amazing opportunity to support such a great young man developing his businesses both on and off the track. Our partnership with Gray will focus on our entire line of nutritional supplements, specifically Gray’s favorite GPS performance products, ENERGY and GoYin superfruit juice.”

Sun-sational watermelon

Today is National Watermelon Day. We believe this juicy, red vegetable certainly deserves its own day!

Yes, the watermelon is a vegetable, in close relation to the pumpkin, cucumber and squash. It’s actually native to Africa which makes sense as this vegetable craves hot, sunny environments in which to grow.

Watermelon really is the quintessential summer snack. The sweet, slurpy goodness you get from every bite of ripe watermelon is not only delicious, but it’s full of healthy nutrients. It’s almost 100 percent water and it boasts significant levels of vitamins and minerals. Watermelon ontains vitamins A, B6 and C, lycopene, antioxidants, potassium and amino acids. It’s fat-free, has very low sodium and contains only 40 calories per cup.1

Watermelon contains:

  • Amino acids — the basic building block for protein.
  • Potassium regulates blood pressure and reduces stress and anxiety. 2
  • Vitamin A helps fight inflammation. 2
  • Vitamin B6 is important for metabolism. 2
  • Vitamin C helps boost the immune system.2
  • Antioxidants, like lycopene, help prevent free radical damage.3
  • Lycopene may have anti-inflammatory properties, too.3

The entire watermelon is edible

You can eat the rind and seeds of a watermelon which are also very nutritious. The white rind of the watermelon contains the amino acid citrulline, which converts into the amino acid arginine.4 These amino acids promote blood flow, leading to cardiovascular health and improved circulation, much like the benefits one gets from PURE’s GPS Circulate product.*

Next time you enjoy a slice of watermelon, save the seeds. Watermelon seeds are low in calories and high in protein, magnesium, vitamin B and healthy fats. Chew them to get the most from their nutrients.

Roasting the seeds is a great way to enjoy them. Place the seeds on a baking sheet and cook at 325F. Bake for 15 minutes. Sprinkle them with olive oil and salt, or cinnamon and sugar. If you like them spicy, add lime juice and chili powder.

Love the taste of watermelon?

You’ll love our watermelon-flavored ENERGY drink mix! It’s packed with antioxidants, botanicals and natural sources of caffeine, and is the perfect alternative to sugar-laden, artificially sweetened energy drinks on the market.

ENERGY drink mix:

  • contains B-vitamins, such as thiamin, riboflavin, B6 and B12, which are useful for converting food into fuel
  • eases fatigue*
  • fuels your focus*

ENERGY is made with:

  • no artificial coloring or sweeteners
  • no preservatives

You can also use ENERGY drink mix to make ice cubes or popsicles. It is available in lemon, island splash, grape and mixed berry flavors, too. Learn more.
