FOOD IS FUEL
This is a daily caloric chart for women, that you should live by. It makes sense. You have to fuel your body for it to burn fat. Eating 5-6 small meals per day or every 2-3 hours is a MUST.
Download the chart below, put it on the fridge or at your work desk.
Use your weight and activity level to guide you to the amount of calories you should be eating everyday.
I hope you are at least in the low activity range.
Low Activity (low impact walking, cycling 2-3 times a week)
Medium Activity (low impact walking or cycling 3-4 times a week)
High Activity (low impact walking or cycling 6-7 times a week)

THE NATURAL WAY TO PERMANANTLY ELIMINATE CANDIDA AND YEAST INFECTIONS
Candida has become a VERY popular topic within the natural health community and for good reason. As much as 80% of the population has or will have Candida in their lifetime. Of this amount as much as 90% aren't even aware of it!
Don't be one of them, make sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page after you read this to take the last Candida Questionnaire you'll ever need to take. Determine once and for all if YOU actually have Candida or not!
Candida Symptoms are many and widespread this being due to the full body impact a pathogenic organism can have on the body when left to do damage.
Some of the most popular Candida Symptoms are:
•Painful Urination or Other Urinary Disorders
•Depression or Mood Swings
•Joint Pain or Swelling
•Digestive disorders such as IBS
•Short Attention Span
•Headaches or Constant Migraines
•Chronic Respiratory Infections
•Shortness of Breath
•Learning and Memory Problems
Sinus Congestion and pain, ADHD, Constipation and the list goes on and on
Candida symptoms don't need to be a part of your life, there are MANY natural therapies you can use to eliminate Candida. However there are few that actually provide long term relief, even fewer that Eliminate Candida Symptoms for good.
Most Natural therapies use a combination of Anti-Fungals, Probiotics and a strict diet to ensure success. This will work to eliminate Candida symptoms for a little while, however as much as 95% of people never experience total relief from all their symptoms by doing this alone. Mostly due to the fact that no one can eliminate their sugar intake for life and eventually when you go back on eating sugar again sooner or later Candida will develop and it's back to square one.
You may wonder if it's even possible at all to have relief for life. The answer is absolutely, but the root cause that is allowing Candida to thrive in your body must be addressed. This requires different cleanses that may not directly kill Candida, but after performed will allow your body to eliminate Candida all on it's own. It is truly the most natural way to eliminate Candida and all its symptoms for life.

TIPS TO REDUCE BELLY FAT
It has been stated that losing weight in a specific area is not possible, until now. Many people look to reduce belly fat with no success in finding the right solution. The goal is too look at the body as a whole as you will still want to lose weight everywhere.
Can You Lose Weight Where You Want?
You can reduce belly fat with a bowel cleanse. The bowel cleanse is designed to help you get rid of compiled waist that has been sitting in your intestinal track for many years and maybe even most of your life.
The reason why our belly looks fat has a lot to do with what's inside them. Studies show that 10-15 pounds of fecal matter are still contained in our stomach. This is an extra 10-15 pounds of weight surrounding our belly.
The goal is to get rid of this belly fat by getting rid of what is inside. You will be amazed at how much weight you can lose and especially all of it coming from you belly. The 10-15 pounds of waste makes you look fatter because it pushes your belly out.
Get rid of what it doing that and you will have a much flatter stomach. I'm not promising a 6 pack, but I am promising some specific weight loss in that area.

DO YOU WANT STRONGER SHOULDERS, BACK AND CORE?
The Overhead Dumbbell Squat is a great exercise to add to your training routine to strengthen your shoulders, back and core.
It’s a crazy exercise that reminds your body that plateaus are not an option.
HOW YOU DO IT
· Grasp a dumbbell and stand erect, holding it at shoulder height. Place your opposite hand on your hip.
· Place your feet wider than shoulder-width apart. Keep your abs pulled in tight, chest up and eyes focused forward.
· Inhale deeply and press the dumbbell overhead to full arm extension.
· Holding the weight overhead, perform a squat by bending your knees and hips as if you were sitting in a chair. Keep your torso upright and tight on the descent, with the dumbbell above you at arm’s length.
· When your legs form angles of just less than 90 degrees, extend your knees and hips until you return to the standing position: repeat.
· After performing the designated number of reps, lower the dumbbell to your shoulder and then to the floor. Rest and repeat with the other arm.
1. Include the overhead dumbbell squat as part of a back or shoulder workout, either regularly or anytime you want to push the envelope
2. Try the overhead barbell squat for a different feel
3. Don’t have access to a dumbbell; you can use a kettlebell, large can of soup or anything that you can pick up with some weight.
FUNK'S SHOULDER WORKOUT
1. Overhead Dumbbell Squat - 4 sets of 10 reps (each arm)
2. Seated Military Press – 4 sets of 10 reps
3. Funk Crazy 28’s – 3 sets of 28 reps

BURN 2 LBS PER WEEK OR 8-10 LBS IN A MONTH
For a fat loss you want to see a deficit but within reason. If you do not get in enough calories you then alter the effect and will gain weight due to the result of your metabolism slowing in response to the lack of calories needed.
Eating every 2-3 hours is the basis of this diet which helps keep that metabolism burning your fat stores and not having to concentrate on the food you're taking in.
The fibrous carbs are a must. Dark leafy greens and items such as green beans, asparagus, and broccoli and mustard greens should be eating 2-3 times per day. Breakfast is always easy with choices like egg whites, protein shakes, and oatmeal. Pre and post workout depends on your goals and factor on protein or 50/50 type shakes. I say if you want to burn fat, eat a good meal after your workout, items such as listed above.
A few hours before bed is a great time for a protein powder and water drink to help with muscle recovery. This is not going to cause you any fat gain at all. Lastly you want to ensure you include some Omega fats into the diet in the forms of olives, avocado and the best choice being almonds.
Use this guide to set up a meal plan; here is a sample fat burning meal plan. This will help you with some serious fat loss!!!
Keep it strict and you can expect an average of 2 lbs per week or 8-10lbs in a month.
Breakfast - oatmeal and 3 egg whites with a small banana
Snack 1 - no fat plain yogurt with ¼ cup mixed nuts and berries
Lunch - chicken breast or fish fillet with 2 cups greens and no fat dressing along with ¾ cup brown rice.
Snack 2 - 2 plain rice cakes with a tsp almond butter per pc and ½ cup to a cup chopped broccoli
Dinner - large fish fillet of cod or snapper steamed with 1 cup (measured cooked) mustard greens and spinach plus a small potato or yam
Snack 3 - protein drink
FUNK FITNESS TIP
If your cardio workout overshadows your resistance training, you run the risk of losing muscle tissue. Also, your body may eventually experience exhaustion and develop nutrient deficiencies.
Cardiovascular exercises require a lot of fuel and wears out your body – specifically your joints. You need to ensure that you add resistance training to strengthen muscles, bones and burn fat efficiently.
The average individual needs about 30 minutes a day, three to five days a week.
