Presence of bacteria and yeast in the fermented tea might produce some adverse side effects.
If you have any questions, just send me an email I am here for you and available to help you get started! After gaining 55 lbs with my second pregnancy last year, I had some work to do to get my body back after delivering October 2011. The FYM system really works!All you have to do is make the commitment and follow the steps that are outlined for you to follow. I consider myself a very skeptical person, but I am SO THANKFUL I took the leap and gave FYM a chance. It has proven to be more than worth the investment I have made and is now a lifestyle for me.
I was 8 weeks postpartum with my 4th and final child and had been given clearance to resume normal activity. My pregnancies all had pre-term issues causing me weeks of bed rest, lots of hormone injections and meds that made me gain weight and bloat. I was not ready for such work outs and I stupidly believed I was still at the fitness level I was 8 years ago.
This time I progressed slowly and I read the materials…however, I only followed the exercise guidelines, not the nutrition. With the next Transformation Challenge I was more motivated than ever and this time I did it RIGHT.
Avitality has taught me a€?attitude is altitudea€? and truly everything I need to transform my body, my mind and my life is within me.
My goals now are different than when I started with the ebook or moved on to the Transformation Kit. FYM continues to offer me more and more at the level I am at.A  I am never at a stand still.
I don’t run marathons or do Spartan races, but I train hard BECAUSE I WANT TO and because I CAN! FYM is not just a work out program but a mindset complete with empowerment, self exploration and reward. I getting healthier mentally as well a€“ as I stated in my transformation challenge goals, I had more physical goals in mind, but this transformation really worked on MEa€¦not just my body a€“ but my soul.
After three pregnancies and almost 11 years of marriage, I am in better shape today than I was when I was in the Army 11 years ago!!!A  That says something!A  I cannot wait to see what this next year will bring for FYM and for ME! My family is getting healthier, too and together, we will live longer, more active lives!A  What a gift for my children! When Holly asked me to share what FYM means to me, I jumped at the chance to share my story and to sing the praises of the FYM lifestyle!
Once I went back to work I continued to do the E-book workouts but dabbled in different a€?dietsa€? here and there. I remember my turning point was sitting at the kitchen table over Christmas holidays hating how I was feeling. In January 2011 I signed up for the New Years Transformation Challenge here at ClubFYM and took the plunge!
Not only was I experiencing physical changes I was going through an even deeper internal transformation.
The accountability of the Club, the ability to reach out and ask for help, and Holly urging us to ask ourselves the tough questions that make us uncomfortable a€“ this was all truly life changing!!!
Throughout 2011 I stayed strong and committed to my transformation challenges, Club FYM, my workouts and my supportive eating! I completed the run and did great and I know it’s because of the foundation that had been set from my FYM lifestyle.
I’m a person that likes to be in control and as scary as it was to give up the scale and the tape measure, I felt free!!!
And the best part is I’m back to feeling how I did last fall and I’m feeling stronger than ever!!! The internal changes that I’ve been able to make, and continue to make, have been priceless. To me, Avitality means health, strength, support, accountability, no excuses, friendship, transformation and fun!
I was CONVINCED the only way my stomach would ever see the light of day again was if I had a tummy tuck…I used to spend HOURS doing cardio, getting nowhere and away from my family. The first defining moment for me was early on, with the exercise of creating a Vision Board. I feel honored to have had the opportunity to watch them on their journeys, which was a constant reminder that I was not alone. I especially had to stop blaming my husband for when things didn’t work according to my plan.
When I boil my original goals down to their essence, it was to get back to my pre-pregnancy body. I did stick with it and complete the NYTC and was very consistent with my meal plans and workouts following the 30 minutes three times a week.
When I stated, I could barely button up my size 16 blue jeans, and once I got them up my belly just hung over my jeans.
It took me a few challenges to get the momentum goinga€¦.and now I am amazed that just this past year alone I’ve lost 60 over pounds, made the decision to go back to school, was attending my first semester of college in 5 years and am now working towards getting my degree as a Physical Therapy Assistanta€¦all on top of being a busy mom and military wife!
All I have to do is look back at my before photos of me from and I am quickly reassured that I have surpassed my goals and I am ready to set new ones! The theme of this particular challenge was to dare myselfa€¦and going back to school after becoming a mother was a daring challenge for me! For the first time since being an FYM I had to figure out how to deal with sticking to my supportive nutrition when being at school — away from homea€¦away from my controlled environment and not having everything set out the way I wanted.
At first I wasn’t sure what to do but I figured packing my meals and snacks best thing I could do for myself and I stuck with that until my last week of class! When my husband returned home from the military, I found myself dealing with yet another obstacle. Eventually I stepped on the scale, measured myself, and noticed I “gained” a few pounds! I knew that after all the hard work and dedication to get to where I was I could not allow out of control eating habits to take over!! With each challenge experience, I have come to realize and respect that in order to get to my big goal, great effort is necessary and I am ready and willing to reach that goal!
Plus I am back in school for I want to apply to the Physical Therapy Asst program in the fall of 2011. I just cannot believe how far I have come in so little time, my whole life has changed and I truly mean that.
My goals included really following portion sizes and for me, keeping a food journal that included calories and protein was immensely helpful!! After my coaching call with Holly I gained new insight into food and how keeping a food diary can help make a huge difference. I also read a very interesting article about celebrity trainer Gunner Peterson he basically said that to get results you need to avoid being a closet eater and if you were to put all the food that you eat in secret out in front of other people and eat it in front of them you would not do it. Learning the importance and the true value of food (for nutrition not for comfort) has been the biggest difference maker throughout this challenge.
I started off strong, eating clean and working out regularly and feeling pretty good about how things were going. I have done this…My all or nothing mode of operation that often hindered and paralyzed my life was being replaced by the slow and steady wins the race mentality. I realized that I cannot wait for an outside source to motivate me to reach my goals …I had to push and press past the obstacles and persevere.
On thing that has been vitally important to my success is the wonderful ladies that walked this journey with me. So, when I found FYM, I decided to jump right in and Dare myself to stick with the challenge for the entire 12 weeks and achieve my goals! Nutrition and Workouts: I was completely stepping out of my comfort zone with the nutrition and exercise but I was determined to make FYM work for me and I have stuck it out.
Prior to FYM, exercise for me included long duration cardio and participating in a resistance training group class. I followed the monthly FYM resistance training workouts and Intermediate Intervals with the soundtracks for this challenge. 6 Months after Mary Dikeman celebrated her one year anniversary of living the Avitality lifestyle, she celebrates once again at the end of the Summer Slim Down Challenge a€“ proving that not only can you lose 50+ pounds a€“ you can keep it off and continue to achieve true fat loss results!
Fast forward to the beginning of 2008 and I was 220 lbs and was almost to big for my size 18W jeans. Well that day came when my husband, Mike, forwarded an email from Craig Ballantyne, promoting FitYummyMummy for busy moms fat loss.
Instead of just pushing with all my might to just make this fat melt off, I just worked with it.
I never let that stop me from doing what I wanted to do, but I have had pain in my feet all my lifea€¦. In all of this, I plan to continue to tone and reshape my body the FYM way and reach my dream body, too! For now, I like who I am and the body I am in; and I am grateful for the love and support of I LOVE my buddies on ClubFYM!!
Avitality Justina, a mom of six, proves that with the right workouts, healthy eats and some determination to want something more…any mom can get an even better body back!

As a former Cardio Queen, I had to take a new approach to my workouts in order to get the results I was after. I love feeling good because I’ve made the best choices for my future not just the moment. I was surfing the net while nursing and came across what seemed like a a€?too good to be truea€? add for the Deluxe Pack Busy Mom Workouts. I did loose weight and thought I had it under control until I did my first Transformation Challenge and compared the pictures I took with the start of the Ebook to those at the start of the challenge and the Transformation Kit. Clean eating, intense, challenging FYM workouts in the Transformation Kit and a shift in mindset made all the difference.
Holly Rigsby and FYM have guided me through mental challenges as well as physical ones, leading me to discover a passion about being the best version of ME.A  I am proud of what I have accomplished and I am satisfied with what is now a lifestyle and a body that rocks.
No longer do I look at myself as being unable to train like an athlete, or look like one even if I am not truly one. I am becoming the best me, the best mom, the best wife, I can be and it is because I chose to make this healthy switch for a better life!!!! To go from hating myself to loving myself, loving what I see in the mirror and to be full of confidence in myself and knowing that I can do anything I set my mind to.
Having never done this before, I was surprised by how much I got into it, quickly filling a poster with pictures and words that depicted the life I wanted to see for myself. Time to let go of the old story I had been stuck in and transform into the person I hoped I could become. I was so inspired by their dedication to their process and their positive attitude even amid personal challenges – it allowed me to stick with it and get over the rough patches on my road to success.
I feel proud that I was able to meet all of the weight and size goals I had originally set, and yet my goals also transformed with me. The process of posting regularly to my Progress Journal helped me to see how much things have truly changes in just 12 weeks. Doing that I was able to lose over 10 pounds, 8.3% body fat, and drop three pants sizes to fit into my goal pants. I trained myself to eat smaller portions that evenly distributed my calories over 5-6 meals a day. I could not spend an entire hour studying so I would carve out 15 minutes studying a chapter or doing problems and it proved effective!
No matter “how bad” or how far off track you may think you are, you can TURN RIGHT BACK AROUND WHERE YOU ARE! I TOTALLY think that was the key (and maybe the start of the Prograde Metabolism kicked me in the buns, too). And I truly believe it is because of my nutrition (being true to portion sizes, minding my caloric intake in regards to overeating even healthy foods and focusing on getting a lot of protein)! I found that to be a very good way of looking at things since my whole eating addiction started out in secret. I also listened to the interval coaching call to get the most out of my workouts and realised I had been doing them wrong! Even posting my before pictures was out of my comfort zone but my ABs dared me so I posted and kept them up.
Now that I have a child, I don’t have the freedom to spend hours working out like I used to. I am heading back to work in January feeling confident in my skin and looking forward to buying a few new back to work pieces as a reward for achieving my goals. One thing it certainly did was make me aware that for about a week I wrote that I would make the same change almost every day.
I am reaching a peaceful place about my transformation journey and that is what hit me when I thought about how fast the end of the Summer Slim Down Challenge came.
I was doing 3 sets of 8 regular pushups at the beginning of the challenge and just this last week, I did 4 sets of 10!! Ia€™d also like my current skinny jeans which are a size 12 in Australia to fall off me by the end of the twelve week Fall Challenge so, I can get a new pair. Here are some natural remedies for high blood pressure.Avoid table salt (sodium, sodium chloride, NaCl). Most of them stay away from coffee, believing that its high caffeine content will harm their bodies and keep them awake at night.
Whether brewed with tea leaves over a flame or made with a tea bag in hot water, whether black and unsweetened or with added milk and sugar, tea holds a special place in people’s hearts. For many people, the highlight of their working day is when they come back to their desks after lunch and drink a calming cup of tea. What is more, the more beneficial teas such as green or white tea contain more caffeine than a usual cup of milky tea! A mid-morning cup of coffee when the day’s chores are almost on track is a wonderful experience, too. A cup of instant coffee will contain about 173 mg of caffeine, while a cup of mocha will have 175 mg of caffeine. A 235 ml cup of black tea contains about 70 mg of caffeine, and green tea has 45 mg of caffeine. But when he comes back from school you find the food half eaten or not eaten at all because probably he found it boring. It is easy and fast to cook and it is a tasty and nutritious snack since vegetables and spices are added to it.
To this paste add red chillies, cumin, asafoetida, grated ginger, chopped coriander leaves, and salt. We all love eating pizzas and it is a good way of making children eat different vegetables. To make a pizza crust you need dry yeast, flour, white sugar, oil, salt and water to knead the dough. But it is not junk food, the original pizza from Italy, is made from dough which has no fat added to it, topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. Vegetables are rich in vitamins and minerals which are needed for good health and good growth of the body. Cloves and ginger have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which provide lots of health benefits like protection from heart disease, cancer, improve insulin function etc.
Thus frequent eating and over eating habits enhances weight gain in a short period of time. Hence, in earlier days more fatty food products like meat, sweets and other fat rich food products were prepared by adding spice varieties that contained fat burning and highly digesting capacities. Similarly, turmeric powder also has the capacity to slow down bad cholesterol, prevents blood clot in blood vessels, and indirectly helps prevent heart problems. In Indian food preparations, Cardamom remains one of the prime ingredients and it is widely used in food items that contain fat, oil and excess starch. It has spectacular medicinal values and it helps in burning fat and controlling blood sugar levels to normal. It is added to obtain viscosity in gravy food preparations and it remains a soothing ingredient as it will not create inflammation which certain spices like green chilli which enhances inflammation.
Each spice variety bears unique taste, smell and texture and when they are applied mostly in food preparation. The process of steam distillation is generally applied to extract the specific aroma and oil from spice varieties.
Perfumes made from chemicals may be harmful when used for long term.  On the other hand, fragrance or body spray made of spice oil is safe to use as the ingredients are naturally available and no artificial fragrance is added to them. These spice varieties contain rich natural flavor and enhance the existing properties of supportive ingredients thus making the final product remain perfect in natural fragrance. The climatic condition and the different land forms make it favorable for Indian farmers to grow more spice varieties in India and export to other countries as well, meeting the ever increasing demand for Indian spices in the world market.
For example, turmeric is a popular spice variety that is applied for skin care, healing of wounds, pimple cure, etc.
Ltd is a pioneer in offering wide range of Indian spice varieties – turmeric, cloves, pepper, coriander, chilli, etc.
But the presence of spice oil which can be obtained only by extraction process makes it eligible for the cosmetic industry as well.
Tea contains good amount of polyphenols, and  anti-oxidants  which make it a healthy drink. Spiced tea improves digestion, decreases inflammation and reduces the dangers of many diseases, it improves your life and you live longer.
It provides you the benefits of tea as well as health benefits of all the spices added to it. As it improves circulation it arouses the mind, and improves appetite, makes lungs, kidneys and heart stronger. Spices improve the working of the stomach and intestines by improving the digestive system. Bad cholesterol or Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) is the major cause of blockage in arteries.
Fat around your belly is responsible for heart diseases and cinnamon helps to reduce that too. The two main compounds of coriander seeds, linaloon and decanoic acid, are known to lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels. The Curcumin found in turmeric has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-clotting and anti-proliferative properties. It has the property to reduce triglycerides, cholesterol, and raises the levels of good cholesterol.

It is helpful to people suffering from heart ailments due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-clotting properties.
If eaten everyday it is known to reduce the risk of heart disease by 75%, it reduces the level of cholesterol, makes blood thin, thus prevents the formation of blood clots.
But cardamom oil used in chocolates, toffees and other confectionary items has found a new market for these products. These days you can find many Chinese spices and herbs at your local supermarkets and some specialty food stores.
You need to use the whole spice while cooking, but it can’t be consumed, hence you need to discard the spice before serving the dish.
In the sixteenth century when Europeans came to Mexico they brought along with them range of spices and herbs, vegetables and fruits that did not grow in Mexico.
Many recipes include Mexican spices like garlic, garlic powder, chilli powder, cumin, oregano, coriander and epazote.
It is used in pozole (traditional pre-Columbian soup or stew from Mexico), in dishes with tomato as base, and in huachinango a la veracruzana (a classic fish dish).
Millions of people are suffering from the disease and billions of rupees are spent every year on drugs for its treatment.
When the blood supply to joints is reduced due to different reasons, the bones of the joints are not repaired and cause pain in the joints, stiffness, inflamed bones, and tiredness. Some of the herbs and spices have anti inflammatory properties which help to reduce the inflammation in the joints. When a person adds foods containing alkaline foods of vegetable origin, or vegetable proteins, the actual cause of the inflammation is reversed. Curcumin taken in the natural form, by including turmeric in the diet, or as a supplement, is more effective than taking drugs for treatment. The anti-inflammatory properties of Curcumin restrain the synthesis of certain enzymes that cause inflammation.
In 2012, a study was published in a journal which stated that the extract of cinnamon had properties to lessen the substances that were responsible for causing inflammation and damage to the tissues. If you are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis you may also need to avoid certain foods like dairy products, meat, refined sugar and sweets, as these deteriorate the symptoms.
Even Hollywood celebrities including Halle Berry and Lindsay Lohan have included Kombucha tea in their regular diet.In China, Kombucha tea is referred as the tea of immortality. FYM has not only transformed my body, but my attitude about myself, food and exercise as well.A  I used to be a long distance runner, but now I LOVE my FYM WOs so much more! I actually cantered on my lesson horse for the first time last week and I was scared out of my mind but I loved it!!!!! I downloaded the workouts BUT I never did the workouts nor did I get myself involved in the Club. In June of this year, after my race was over, I jumped back into my FYM lifestyle and I haven’t looked back!!! I’m in the best place physically and emotionally I’ve ever been and I owe so much of it to Holly and Club FYM!!!! I have immense gratitude to Holly Rigsby and how she has beautifully laid out all of the pieces of this complex puzzle in a manner that was manageable and simple for me to follow.
Perhaps most important of all, I felt very seen and appreciated by them for what I had to offer to their experience.
If I want to eat supportive foods 5-6 times a day, and workout 3 times a week then I needed to take the actions necessary for that to happen. I became much more focused on having more energy, inner strength, endurance and mental clarity. And as I realized that the FYM workouts are a component that I want to keep in my new healthy lifestyle – I cleaned out the basement and we transformed our storage room in to a workout room where my husband and I can workout together. I have been laser focused on my workouts: not missing ONE SINGLE ST or Interval and completing all finishers! I was extremely excited to start this challenge because as a new mom, it had been sooo long (9 weeks) since I had been able to work out and I missed my FYM workouts! I have altered how I approach my life and have made tremendous changes that will stick with me for life. The mere fact that FYM is structured in such a way that you attain success in a gradual progression helped me to grow away from my All or Nothing mode of operation. Resistance training and cardio at the gym twice a week plus power walking with the stroller almost everyday did nothing for my weight loss goals and I was getting desperate. This aided in my nutrition because I would not give in to non-supportive food when I knew I had a workout ahead and then I would not give in after because I had just worked so hard at my workout. Well, seeing that made me realize that I had identified an obstacle but was just kind of marching in place behind it wondering why I couldn’t get over it. I received great benefit from reading my AB’s journals, and even those of ladies who I am not buddied up with.
Not only am well on my way to body that I am proud of, I got to go on a mini shopping spree with my honey and now have a new smaller? My weight had been slowly creeping up since the I got married 20 years ago, but it wasna€™t until I had my last daughter in 1999 that I just couldna€™t get control of my weight. I almost didna€™t take a peek, but my darling husband never forwards things he doesna€™t believe in! Tea is especially indigenous to Asian and Middle Eastern cultures, which like their tea strong and piping hot, while the French and the British prefer to have weak tea with a little milk and very little sugar. Tea is wonderful even when it’s raining outside, and we are snugly sitting indoors watching television or are curled up on the couch with a good book! Though the quantities of caffeine are lower than those found in coffee, it is worth finding out just how caffeine content a normal cup of tea contains. Whether taken with sugar and milk or simply poured black and unsweetened, coffee’s caffeine kick is worth waiting for! Meanwhile, instant tea contains about 47 mg of caffeine, and bottled iced tea has 40 mg of caffeine. We want to give our children ‘the best’ and healthy food but that does not mean only vegetables and chapattis day in and day out. While kneading the dough, chop or mash vegetables like spinach, cauliflower, carrot, potatoes, methi etc and mix in it.
