Top 10 tips to be Sexy Forever!

Struggling with Fatty Liver

(updated December 2023) In 2010, I faced a diagnosis of fatty liver, prompting a desperate search for weight loss solutions and dietary changes. Despite numerous attempts, shedding 20 pounds seemed impossible until a transformative encounter with Suzanne Somers's "Sexy Forever."

The Breakthrough: Unveiling the Power of 'Sexy Forever'

Discovering the 'Sexy Forever' book led to a successful weight loss of 20 pounds. However, deviations from the diet led to weight regain, prompting a shift to exercise, which proved ineffective. Returning to the 'Sexy Forever' regimen reignited the weight loss journey.

Age, Toxins, and Weight: Understanding the Impact on Health

Reflecting on the challenges faced by women over 40, understanding how toxins affect the liver and contribute to weight gain is crucial for maintaining a healthy body.

Fatty Liver Epidemic: Unseen Health Crisis in America

With 15 million Americans affected by fatty liver disease, the correlation between this condition and obesity underscores the urgent need for healthier eating habits and reduced toxin intake.

Lifestyle Strategies for a Healthier Liver

1. Eat Organic as much as you can - especially raw fruits, veggies, nuts & seeds. This will lower the amount of toxins in your body.

2. Bath Organic putting all these chemicals on your skin also adds more toxins for your liver to process.  Your skin absorbs these chemicals into your body.

3. Add Beans to your diet -- they contain an amino acid that neutralizes toxins that cause stress on your liver. 

4. Anise Seeds in foods may stimulate the regeneration of healthy liver cells which flush out the fats.

5. Turmeric contains a chemical that may help protect the liver against damage caused by accumulated fats.

6. Eat Lean Proteins

7. Exercise - not your typical exercises like the stationary bike or treadmill or crunches or sit-ups.  Experts say these do you no good. There are specific exercises out there just for women over 40 -- lunges - squats - mountain climbers and more.

8. Water - drink with a lemon and at least 8 glasses - 64 ounces a day.

9. Watch what you put in your body - Limit alcohol, processed foods  & carbs -- especially refined quick-burning carbs like white flour & sugar.

10. Read the book Sexy Forever -- It worked and is working for me.  There are lots of tips like when to eat what foods. A certain combination of foods works better.

Top 10 Midday Energy Boosting Tricks

Tips and Tricks 

It seems every afternoon around 2 or 3 o'clock I feel I need to take a nap.  This is called a siesta 
(Spanish pronunciation: [╦łsjesta]) -- a short nap taken in the early afternoon, often after the midday meal. Such a period of sleep is a common tradition in some countries, particularly those where the weather is warm.  

Oh how nice it would be to curl up in my bed and doze for an hour or so.  Or even on a nice day lay under the warm sun on my hammock. But there is just too much to get done, I have to find other ways to re-energize that don't take up a lot of time. 

My Top 10 ways to get that extra boost of energy midday

Answer the following questions...

  • Am I sneaking sugar, grains and loads of carbs? 
  • Am I getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep at night? 
  • Have I slacked of on my exercise? 
  • Am I eating enough healthy fats for energy? 

Here's a list of tips or energy tricks if your still lacking the much needed energy.

Change Task -- Whatever I'm doing at the moment I find a different task to do. A change of scenery always seems to help.

Walk Outside -- a short fast paced walk can rejuvenate.

Exercise -- A quick 4 minute workout, 4 minutes of non-stop cardio pumping exercises: one minute each jumping jacks, push ups, lunges and squats. This really gets the heart pumping and blood flowing.

Stretch -- Stretch with some soothing music seems to replenish my energy.


 Cat Nap -- You have to be careful with this one. I make sure I only close my eyes for 5 minutes and take cat naps sitting up, otherwise I will be napping for hours. 

Lemons are Good for so Many Reasons

-- Drink plenty of water with a slice of lemon.

Light Lunch -- Be mindful to eat carbs in the morning. Eating big carb filled lunch can drag you down. 

Apples -- a nice juicy Red Delicious apple can hit the spot.

Music --  Turn on your favorite songs  and dance. 

Topless in my Jeep!

Blast of Fresh Air -- My favorite way to get my biggest boost of energy is to get a blast of fresh air and sun. The best way to do that is to hop in my Jeep with the op down, turn up the radio, and I'm off to get myself energized!
