I can’t express enough how glad I am I made that decision.
Prior to having Biz oversee my phases, I would go about 14 days into P2 and stall out, even though I was doing pristine protocol. It seemed like I would play around with the same pound or two, never making any progress.
Had I noticed the little nuances that Biz did while working with her, my rounds would have been much more productive. Just one example was how Biz noticed that eating shrimp was counterproductive to my losses.
When I decided to work with Biz, I wasn’t sure I wanted […]
For some of you that are new to the hCG Protocol, Phase 3 scares the LIFE out of you! No need to be scared. Just like with P2, preparation is the key – these tips will help you focus on your needs to your upcoming break. Make the most of it!
Tip #1 – Remember Your Body is Different Now
Every Phase 3 is different. Just because you did very well on one break does not mean that you will do very well on a subsequent one. Just a 5 – 10% loss of total body weight will […]

In the world of weight control, self-image has come up a lot. For many, the ONLY reason to reach their goal weight is self-image.
Not us though, right? We are on a quest for health!
Low self-image or self-esteem, can negatively affect almost every part of our lives, from our most precious relationships to our jobs, and ultimately, our health. But the good news is that we can raise the level of our self-image, even if we’ve had a low self-image since we were kids.
It’s as simple […]
I wrote an article not to long ago on the value of looking at your potassium numbers in relation to your sodium numbers.
The article leaned toward using the formula contained within during the maintenance phase of your weight control journey. But some people don’t realize that it is advantageous to follow that rule of thumb during your P2 as well.
I have what I call a “Potassium Day” that you can use on P2 that is almost a miracle for helping you get yourself out of a stall, or to use after a night of indulgence […]
I wrestled with just writing that and be done with it. But no, that isn’t my style. ::giggle::

Just because you got the monkey off your back doesn’t mean the circus has left town. ~ George Carlin
“Mom, I don’t need Ruffles. If they hurt you, don’t buy them,” said my [at the time] 11-year-old daughter, who is so much wiser than her years.
Simplicity at its finest. No excuses. No regrets. No blame. Just the truth from someone who has my back.
That short, sweet sentence launched the beginning of the end of my addiction.
There, I said it. I’m a recovering addict.
And I’m being completely serious.
Addiction therapy gurus tell us that to overcome an addiction, we first have to admit […]
