How to Make a Simple-Healthy-Inexpensive Smoothie at home using 4 Ingredients. Here is an example: 1) Choose a frozen berry or a fruit. I recommend either a handful of frozen Blueberries or cutting up a Whole Apple. 2) Choose a Dark Leafy Green. I recommend either a handful of frozen pre-washed Kale or Spinach. 3) Choose a spoonful of your favorite natural nut butter. My choice is Natural Peanut Butter. 4) Choose 1-2 scoops of a tasty Protein Powder. Taste is VERY important here. There are many choices, both animal and non-animal proteins. I personally prefer a chocolate Whey Protein Powder or a Vanilla Pea Protein Powder. Lastly, add some cold water to your blender full of ingredients. I usually fill it up to the half-way mark of whatever I put in my blender that day. Experiment with everything to get things how you like. Smoothies are a great way to add fruits and vegetables to your diet. Smoothies are best after exercise or when you’re in a hurry. I highly recommend them. You can add other ingredients. I put about a dozen different goodies in mine. To me, my smoothies are like daily medicine. Keep it simple. Enjoy. #bssbbooks #blueskystrongbox

New Health & Fitness Tips! This week I want to talk about a common occurrence, the obsession of counting calories. Things such as how many calories we eat and drink, how many calories we burn while exercising or meeting our daily step quotas. I’ve been there. Many of us have. Some of us, for medical reasons, may always need to count such numbers. And that’s ok. Health is most important. I’m talking more about vanity, which is also important to many people. It’s not that I think counting calories is completely pointless for making improvements in body composition, it’s more to do with the disregard for everything else that often accompanies. Common sense things like quality of sleep, reduction in stress, quality of food, quality of exercise and how each of these can make or break the hormone balance that controls everything you’re probably wanting to do. For those that may be in the middle of your own battle with calories, remember this important detail. Counting calories is not a long term solution. Do the right things most of the time and eventually you shouldn’t have to worry so much about all the numbers.

New Monthly Tipz! I’m back but instead of weekly, it’s proably gonna be more like monthly.This time i talk about a simple strategy for the holiday season. Why you ask? Because like it or not, too many people are gonna be fatter by the end of this year. Let’s not do that. You know, to be honest, there’s no secret or magic trick to any of it. It just comes down to a mindset, a simple plan and some stick-to-it-ness. Exercise can help but not more than focusing on nutrition during the next couple of months. Watch the video. Figure out your plan. Follow through. See you soon. Sorry it’s been a while… – Carlton

So here we go, New Weekly Tipz for 2013! Today i talk briefly on why exercise is NOT more important than diet for anyone wanting to lose body fat. Focus your precious energy on the food & drink you put in your mouth. Exercise won’t save you until all that is on a much better path. And keep this in mind, don’t just make small changes and expect the world from them. It don’t work like that. However, do start slow and aim to finish strong. Changing habits with food means you get to “practice” that habit multiple times a day. Besides exercise only burns off what fat you already have on you. It’s smarter not to put any more body fat you on in the first place. So by eating smarter you can actually start to burn off fat by creating a “deficit” without having to exercise all day, every day.
