Tracy Anderson Weight Loss DVDs to lose weight like Kourtney Kardashian

on January 4th, 2013

You have probably heard about the Tracy Anderson Method from celebrities who endorse her like Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna who have personally trained with her, or you have seen her on infomercials talking about her metamorphosis set of DVDs that will transform your body through small repetitive targeted movements when done at a minimum of 5 days a week.

Recently we have been hearing  a lot about Tracy Anderson’s studio in Studio City California thanks to the Kardashians who have been frequenting the studio for private classes. Kourtney Kardashian credits Tracy Anderson for her 44 pound weight lost after her daughter was born. Kim Kardashian has been stopping in for classes to stay in shape while pregnant with Kanye West’s baby.

I have personally gone to the classes in Studio City and find them to be a great way to whip your body into shape. The only thing is if you do not live near one of the studios or do not have the time to get to a class everyday the next best thing is to get her set of DVDs and do the workout at home.

Hey if it worked for Gwyneth and Kourtney and they endorse it, why not try it at home?

Get the Tracy Anderson DVD Metamorphosis set was $120 now just marked down for the New Year for $89.

Dukan Diet Weight Loss Plan – Healthy Eating That is Delicious

on October 28th, 2012

A healthy eating plan for fast weight loss and permanent stabilization. Dukan Diet Weight Loss Coaching will get you there. Find your True Weight now! 

I started the Dukan Diet after many failed attempts that included counting points on the Weight Watchers points diet that Jessica Simpson is on, different crash diets and the Atkis Diet. I found that the Weight Watchers points did not work for me because somehow by lunch time I had eaten all of my points because I love eating lots of food and often.

While on the Atkins Diet or the Paleo Diet as it is called today, I found I was getting sick and tired of protein and just wanted a slice of real pizza that was not made of eggs. The Paleo Diet also made eating out very difficult unless I planned on just eating meat and salad for the rest of my life.

Because I love food and believe that healthy eating that contributes to weight loss needs to be combined with Physical activity as well as portion control without food group restrictions, I turned to the Dukan Diet. Many friends had tried Paleo and Weight Watchers Points and told me that I needed to look into the Dukan Diet because it was just that easy.

Once I bought the book and read it, I started on the recipes and I can see now why someone who loves food as much as I do could stay on this diet and why French women stay thin. It is because they do not indulge in crash diets and instead rely on healthy eating habits and daily physical activity and moderation.  There are so many great recipes including my favorite Dukan muffins that you can make and keep in the freezer for an early morning breakfast before starting your day. On the Dukan Diet you do not feel deprived and are learning healthy eating habits while enjoying fast weight loss.

There are great recipes that include Tea Sorbet, Curried Turnip Soup, and Poached Beef to name a few. This fast weight loss plan will not feel like a diet.

Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter Snacks

When you think about summer it is always about cool fun snack alternatives for the kids to eat after a hot day in the pool, park, beach, or camp. I always like to think of fun ways to keep it healthy. One of my favorite recipes is the frozen banana peanut butter pinwheels which is so easy to do you can put your 5 year old to work assembling them while you are busy making dinner.


2 medium bananas cut in wheels

1 cup of  peanut butter

1/2 cup of melted dark chocolate

Place bananas on a cookie sheet. Place bananas on the cookie sheet. Add a small 1/2 tsp of peanut butter on top of each banana wheel. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the bananas and peanut butter. Put in the freezer overnight.

Whenever your kids want dessert this summer hand them a few of these pinwheels. They will think they are eating ice cream when they are actually eating frozen bananas.

Another favorite in our family are frozen grapes. All you have to do is wash and put in the freezer. A great snack that will help for weight loss cravings as well.

Let me know what you think and if you have recipes you want to share – leave a comment.

Holiday weight loss exercise secrets

Holiday gift idea for yourself or a loved one you want to help keep fit:

How pretty are these pink New Balance running sneakers? I love the pink color to keep me motivated through the gray winter. Don’t let the pink color fool you into thinking these are not great running tools to keep you fit throughout the winter and through the holidays. New Balance running sneakers have the best technology in exercise footwear and this pair of New Balance running sneakers will cushion and support you through the toughest workouts this winter season. Celebrities like Fergie love New Balance sneakers.

If you are like the rest of us and will be having a big holiday feast and enjoying New Year’s a little bit too much… start working out a little bit every single day now and don’t let those New Year’s pounds creep up on you. Everything in moderation should be the key for the holidays. Take a bite of that pumpkin pie instead of eating 1 whole slice and drink a single glass of wine at that holiday party instead of 2 or 3 glasses. Drink lots of water all day long. Use one of those Benefiber flavor packs if you have a hard time drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. Even if you only have time to walk up and down the stairs today, just do some type of activity today. A little goes a long way.

These great running shoes come in gray, white, and other colors that are great for both men and women. Click New Balance running sneakers here to start exercising now!

The feet are really the wheels to the mind. I have been walking daily in the am and I find my thoughts have been much clearer and more organized. Recently, I bought myself a pair of MBT Tunisha Black Leather Mary Jane shoes to facilitate my new walking regime and I am loving them. My posture has been better and my leg muscles are more toned.

Aside from just plain eating less and healthier, I think shoes like these MBT maryjanes do make a difference. Unlike the other brands which claim they do the same thing, these shoes do have a special Masai technology that works the different muscles in your body. Just walking around daily doing errands, I have found they are adding a new healthy dimension to my lifestyle.

Lots of celebrities have been wearing their MBT Footwear everywhere too. Debra Messing was quoted in Shape Magazine talking about these shoes aiding in her after birth weight loss. Click the photos below to check them out for yourself.

I have checked everywhere and by far the best prices are online. You save with free shipping and no tax. Click the photos below to see all the different styles.

Do you love pasta but want to lose weight? I have tried many diets from Atkins to fruit and veggies only diets and always lapsed back into my old ways. Recently I found a diet where I just ate normally, but substituted Japanese plant based high fibernoodles” in place of regular flour pasta and I have had a significant amount of weight loss without the normal sugar high and dip after eating flour noodles. These noodles are called Miracle Noodles and I am loving them. I have sent packages to my parents and friends to try and they also love the noodles. If you want to try them, try them now. Each packet is well priced and sent right to your home.

Tonight, I had a beef bolognese on top of the Miracle Noodles and I am full and happy. Check it out for yourself. Make comments and let me know what you think. I think this is a great Father’s Day gift or Graduation Gift. The amazing thing is that these noodles are ZERO CALORIES too! So you can eat a whole packet with your favorite sauce without feeling that carb guilt I always felt.

Oprah weight loss goal 2009

Today on the Oprah show, Oprah is going to talk about how she gained back 40 pounds in 4 years and the fact that she is upset at herself, and plans to start losing the weight again.

This is definitely going to be a good episode to watch considering it is a New Year and weight loss is on many people’s minds as a resolution. I just started my own weight loss goal of 5 pounds with so that I can lose the weight I gained from Thanksgiving to New Year’s eve so I am really interested in seeing what tips the Oprah show will give on losing weight.

Oprah had this to say in her magazine article,”It’s about using food – abusing food. Too much work. Not enough play. Not enough time to come down. Not enough time to really relax.” Don’t we all know that same feeling? When I am running on a 14 hour day with work, family, errands, bills, and everything else in between, when does anyone have time to take care of themselves?

Lately, I have been ordering my groceries online and that has been a tremendous time saver. I no longer have to drive to the grocery store, park the car, pick out all the foods, get in line, and drive home with them. Now, I go online, pick my groceries, wait for the delivery when I am at home in the evenings, and put them straight into the fridge and the cupboards. I really love this new convenient way of buying groceries. They have really good produce, all the brands of milk and cereals I like, and they are always on time. Try online grocery shopping at and save $4.95 on your first order! Get Free Delivery for your Home or Business at on your first order of $50 or more.
