The Diet Paradox

Click here to listen to Free Audio – The Diet Paradox (eating this way helped me shed 50+ pounds in 2009-and I was never hungry) – Did you know that in 2010, 7 out of 10 Americans are expected to be overweight? When I read this I couldn’t believe it.

This means that whatever we’re all doing to help us get thin isn’t working… at all!

The positive news about this is that 3 out of 10 have the answer. They know some things that we all could learn.

What the thin have to say may surprise you. Losing weight isn’t about starvation diets, pills, supplements or counting calories.

It’s actually much easier.

Bestselling author and nutritionist David Wolfe says the answer to lasting weight loss has been right under our noses the whole time. Click here to listen to Free Audio You have nothing to lose but those extra pounds!

2010 Boom or Bust?

Do you know how to turn your resolutions into reality? I must admit that I don’t! I have failed so many times in the past at making my resolutions work that I honestly wasn’t ever going to make any again!

Seriously…I know that’s not very positive but it’s the truth, I was so discouraged by my repeated failures that I was ready to quit! And remember “I am Mr. POSITIVE!” so this quite frankly was very disturbing to me. After a while I calmed down and spent some time thinking, reading and researching resources to help me with this problem. I found the solution this past October.

I met “The Goals Guy” Gary Ryan Blair just 92 days ago when I entered his 100 Day Challenge program to finish 2009 strong and set up 2010 as my best year ever. Now I know that I can really make my resolutions stick this year! (Sadly, most people give up on their resolutions by the end of January)

I am committed and determined…this is my year!  I am writing this because I would like the same for you, your best year ever, whatever that means to you, I want you to be healthy, happy, prosperous so I thought I would share what I truly believe to be my best shot at making this all happen, if you’d like to learn more watch this short video, it makes sense to me. Let’s make 2010 our best year ever! Happy New Year!

Got Resolutions? Are you ready for success… I AM!

Here’s proof…

“Gary, your help in putting together my own personal strategic plan in the midst of all of the general chaos of my business has been invaluable. Your insight, which I’ve now outlined in my personal strategy to push for a promotion, and raise, which should exceed $3,500, more than justifies the small investment I’ve made out of pocket for your services. Quite honestly, I could not have done it without your help. Thank You!

Happy ‘HOLY’ Days!

Finally, for all who are writing about me “selling out” or being “politically correct” because I chose to say “Happy ‘HOLY’ Days” instead of their preferred term. I say please understand that I run an “International Newsletter” with people who are also celebrating special Holy days at this time of year.

In December people celebrate special days like, Bodhi Day, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, The Winter Solstice, etc. all of which are ‘Holy Days’ and I while you or I may not celebrate them Billions of others do! Hence my inclusive message to all (can you tell this is a pet peeve of mine…sorry I’m working on it but seriously people…can’t we all just get along and bless each other? Isn’t that the real message of the season any way?). 

What are your thoughts…do you Agree or Disagree? You can share your thoughts by commenting on this article.  Again, Happy HOLY Days and a Very Happy New Year! 


PS I am working for a world where we all respect each others faith, culture and traditions. Let’s celebrate what we have in common that’s my HOLY day wish for all.

One family’s journey during this economic downturn.

Below is a true story that really moved me. It’s about one family’s journey during this economic downturn and I just think it’s wonderful how the have responded to their personal crisis with hope, faith and love. Be sure to read what their 10 year old son wrote from his perspective…it’ll touch your heart.

“Hi David ! My wife shares all your emails with me. I’m looking forward to one day meeting you.

This is our story in a nutshell. It’s amazing what a difference a day makes. America is the richest country in the world.And as Americans we totally take a lot of things for granted. With my family ,I have always been able to provide and live very comfortably. My wife was a stay home mom for 13 years.And I work as a skycap for the # 1 airlines,at one of the busiest airports in the country. Working solely on tips,we were never short on cash.

The crisis of the economic down fall finally hit our house,like a big fist.  The company I worked for over 10 years lost the contract. I now had to re- apply with the new company, and pray I have a job.Not only did they cut my hours ,I’m now only working 3 days a week solely on tips,talk about FAITH!

I sent out mass loads of resumes with no response.We had a padding of about 40k in our personal account.But as days and weeks went by,and the the non stop of bills and not to mention mortgage. We watched that deplete rapidly to almost zero.

It was causing a major strain on our marriage,bodies,and most of all  our FAITH. We were faced with some major and drastic decision’s. We lived in a beautiful neighborhood . One we had always dreamed about.We had a brand new 5/3, 3,500 sq ft  home,with pool,whirlpool, and all the bells and whistles.But due to financial constraints.We were forced to move to
a 1100 sq ft 3/2 very old house.It already came with lots of roommates, the kind with 4 to 8 legs and wings.Some of them were so excited we were moving in,that a few were laying on their backs dead from all the excitement of the new tenants.

As a man ,and the head of my household. I was at an all time low.I felt as if I was letting my family down.Battling all kinds of  emotions,depression,anger,sadness you name it I felt it.

The only thing I could cling to was my FAITH.One day my wife was really complaining to GOD. She asked him why did this happen to us? She heard a still soft voice in her soul speak to her.

The LORD said” Look at what you  have instead of what you no longer had” She looked into the refrigerator and saw we have 2 stocked with food.She began to cry from conviction, because there are people in Orlando without food or a roof over their head.

She shared this with me and the kids,and ask how we would feel about serving and feeding the homeless.We thought it was a great idea and a way to really appreciate what we have. As we bagged up all the meals, our son wrote on all the bags ” God loves u” The response we got was overwhelming.The hardest part was turning away hungry faces when we ran out of food.

The ride home was very quiet,we cried and fought back tears all the way home. When we finally got home and had our meal for the night,everything looked and tasted different. And our humble home didn’t look so bad after all.

Our family now looks forward to serving not the homeless ,but our new friends. Thanks for letting us share our story! God Bless!” Ellis and Silvana Moore, Orlando, FL, USA


A night with the homeless by: Ellis Moore (Age 10)

Every Saturday or Sunday night my family and I go out and feed the homeless people in the city of Orlando. There are thousands of people across The United States with out food or shelter. My family and I have been doing this for several months.

We wanted to see what it was like in the life of a homeless person. One special thing I like to mention is, my family and I do not eat before we begin are journey. So we know how it feels to be hungry.

All of the areas we go to are very dangerous. We go on streets such as, Orange blossom trail, Parramore, Gore street, Colonial dr , and Down town Orlando.

We all get together in the kitchen and prepare the food. Some of the meals are sandwiches and cookies and a bottled of water. Sometimes my mom prepares a steaming hot delicious meal. We then bag them all up to feed 30 or more people.

I like to write a special notes on the bags like, “God loves you”. Before my family And I get into the car we ask God for protection in a family prayer.

A lot of people misunderstand homeless people. Not all homeless people are drug addicts or bad people some are really nice. Some of them just had bad things happened to them.

At first when my family and I went out on the street we had to earn there trust. Because a lot of people are mean to them for no good reason. But now that they see us every week they trust us. We even know some of their names. We all have to remember that these are people that have feelings.

Some of them shake our hands for giving them food, and thank us. Some of them do really funny dances because they are happy.

We have become really close with this man named Tony and his wife. They have all of their personal belongings in shopping carts. After meeting with them several times he has told us a lot about his life. He graduated from collage and has a PHD. He used to teach French and, Spanish. He graduated from Howard University.

After we get done feeding the homeless ,it makes me appreciate what I have at home. Sometimes it makes me sad, and makes mom cry. I love feeding the homeless, and making a difference in someone’s life.

–Ellis Moore (Age 10)
