Stop Eating Sugar suggests Health Coach Kerry Bajaj
“The $1 trillion industrial food system is the biggest drug dealer around,” claims Dr. Mark Hyman in the article “Sweet poison: How sugar, not cocaine is one of the most addictive and dangerous substances.” If sugar is as addictive as its claims, how can one expect to quit cold turkey? Kicking any addiction comes with its share of withdrawals. Fortunately, sugar withdrawals are relatively minor and diminish quickly. If you
Productivity and efficiency begin with simplicity. Time management isn’t about knocking out an unreasonable to-do list in one day’s time. It’s about cutting fat. Slimming the list. Shifting the mindset from quantity to quality. Morning sets the tone for the day. Waking up with calm, collected attention sets you up for success. 5 Morning Rituals to Increase Productivity Make your bed It’s tempting not to. It’s tedious, and rather frivolous considering it’s bound to be destro
Struggling from perpetual impatience, I believe my dreams CAN’T wait. Pressuring myself to execute with efficiency, generally leads to unreasonably high expectations. My latest focus has been one of entrepreneural endeavours. I’ve been reading, breathing and dreaming in business. Regardless of my obsessive compulsive behavior, I often experience disappointment in my efforts, feeling discouraged that I’m not putting in enough time and energy into their actualization. In th
The simple act of writing your goals initiates the process of bringing them to life. PRIORITIZE your goals in order of importance. FOCUS on one lofty goal at a time. TAKE simple steps each day towards the fulfillment of your goal(s).

So what? What does it matter if we still must abide by the rules of a collective cognition? What I extrapolated from this was quite simple and certainly nothing new… Thoughts Become Things Too often we discredit the power of the mind. We are capable of willing into action. But first, you must believe! I know what you’re thinking, sounds like some hokey secret garbage. I get it, I was a skeptic as well, that is until I began manifesting… 8 months ago I was struck by an ov
Before graciously bidding farewell to the incredible island of Oahu, it is imperative that I take one last pass at Kauai’s magical Na Pali coast. This majestic trail is nothing shy of fantasy! Eleven miles of rugged terrain is well worth the sweat in the presence of brilliant red rock, rich cascades of green, and electric blue waters. Having previously hiked Na Pali’s treacherous coastline, I am well aware that all provisions must be carried in and out, on your back. Clear
Just as a painter is struck by color, a singer by melody, or a journalist by story, a chef is inspired by sensation. Art in all expressions, appeals to the senses. Creativity undeniably provokes a sensational mind-body experience. Cooking however, is the one form of artistic expression that promotes the arousal of all five senses harmoniously. The sound alerts and attracts. The smell arouses. The sight excites anticipatory satisfaction. The taste intices the sweet, satis
IT’S A COMPULSION. It can’t be denied. It’s more than an itch; it’s a severe case of ants in the pants. It brews and festers; incessantly reminding, it necessitates relief. THE CRAVING FOR EXPLORATION is ferocious. It rejects fear. It insists on leaving comfort behind. It promotes passion. It promises growth, regeneration and renewal; and it always delivers! THE PURGE, is undeniably liberating. Stuffing the bare essentials into a suitcase fit to fly is humbling. Bidding
As an avid carnivore, I must admit the mere thought of a 30 day abstinence was rather daunting. Here I am 14 days in, and I can honestly say I’ve never felt so freakishly robust. I’ve been shredding physical activities, feeling excessively energetic & sleeping like a champ! My ascribed constitution is that of athletic build. Genetics, paired with a physical lifestyle has lead me to be particularly conscientious of consuming appropriate levels of protein. Though governmen

Luscious, succulent, & saturated! From flesh to fiber; January marks the beginning of the 30 Day Vegan! Diet directly affects our body’s taste & smell. Certain foods invariably account for unpleasant odor, whereas others can promote attractive aromas. Here’s a basic list of foods to hit or quit in order to arouse & attract… Foods that make you smell & taste delightful:
Fruit: pineapple, apples, kiwi, cranberries, watermelon, grapes, & strawberries (in particular)
Americans generally consume an outrageous 156lb of sugar per person, annually! ARE WE A NATION OF ADDICTS?! According to compiled research derived from pubmed.gov, sugar stimulates the brain’s reward centers via the neurotransmitter dopamine. This just so happens to be the same stimulation pathway used by heroin. Certainly a sugar “addiction” renders a far less severe connotation than a heroin addiction, however, biologically speaking the two may have more in common than we’d
What are you determined to accomplish this month? Let’s talk INTENTIONS…
As with just about anything in life, verbalizing ones desires and aspirations serves as an initial step in the process of actualization and fulfillment. However, as speech can be fleeting, I find it obliging to translate my spoken word to written. In an effort of organizing the overflow of intentions, I prefer to break them down. Daily Intentions are set for specific tasks, appointments, and basic resp
10. Avoid foods with labels– if there is an ingredients list be sure there are 5 items or less, all of which you can pronounce.
9. Refrain from evil white powders– sugar, flour, white table salt, cocaine, heroin (all similar hormonal pathways generally resulting in overuse/consumption).
8. Nix high fructose corn syrup– studies have concluded that it punches holes in your gut causing inflammation or leaky gut syndrome.
7. Avoid inflammatory fats– meaning trans & saturated
This month’s theme was inspired indeed by the one and only CHUCK NORRIS.
(CHUCK NORRIS must be spelled with all capital letters in order to be correct, or you’ll be roundhouse kicked through the fifth dimension). Considering CHUCK NORRIS’s daily excercise routine includes wrestling bears, holding back airplanes with his bear hands, pushing trains, and lifting mountains with ease; what does NORRIS November entail for the rest of us?
NORRIS November involves examining your cu
