I’m JJ Smith, a #1 New York Times bestselling author, nutritionist, certified weight loss expert, passionate relationship/life coach, and inspirational speaker. I’ve dedicated my life to the field of healthy eating and living. My passion is educating others on natural ways to stay slim, restore health, and look and feel younger. While I’ve studied many philosophies of natural healing and learned under some of the greatest teachers of our time, it was through my own personal experience that I gained knowledge about healing the body and losing weight.
After being bedridden with mercury poisoning and on tons of medicine, I was at the point where I couldn’t even write a coherent sentence. One day, God spoke to me and told me that raw greens heal bodies. So, I began doing my research and my passion for writing, love for my community, and heart for helping others led to the creation of books on how to eat and live clean. I was able to reclaim my health, lose weight, discover a “second youth” in my forties and become a voice of inspiration to those who want to lose weight, be healthy, and get their sexy back! There are five things that I’ve taken from my health journey that I’ve put at the forefront of my teachings:
I always preach the importance of detoxing to my VIP members because our bodies are exposed to a multitude of toxins every day! Of course, the body is constantly detoxifying itself. But, the problem is that when your system get bogged down, the toxins aren’t filtered properly and your body can’t function optimally—I’m talking excess belly fat, gas, bloating, fatigue, hormonal imbalance, and so much more! Without detoxification, millions of people fail to lose weight permanently. I also teach folks how to activate their body’s own internal belly-flattening mechanisms with the help of my flat belly secret weapon: Mag-07! The 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse and Mag-07 go hand in hand seeing as Mag-07 greatly accelerated my weight loss results on the cleanse after clearing all of the waste from my entire digestive tract in a natural way.
Dress For Your Body Type
Having style and class doesn’t require spending a fortune. There are affordable alternatives to your favorite brands everywhere, you just have to look. The key is to pick pieces that do three things: balance your shape, highlight your best assets, and hide your flaws.
Balance Your Hormones
Sometimes those extra pounds have little to do with how many crunches you’re doing or how much less food you’re eating and everything to do with a shift in hormones, especially if you’re over the age of thirty-five. Excess fat is often due to a hormonal imbalance called estrogen dominance, which can occur primarily in women, but sometimes in men, also. If you don’t address estrogen dominance, your stubborn fat can be impossible to lose, no matter how much you cut down on calories or work out.
Back when I started taking my health seriously, I found myself confused on what healthy eating really meant and how I could quickly reach my health/weight loss goals. As long as you avoid empty calories, eat enough protein, and eat well balanced meals you’re following my clean eating guidelines.
Strive for Progress Not Perfection
People say “it’s the little things that count,” and they’re right. When we think of our weight loss goals, we tend to think of a grand, long-term objective we hope to achieve. Weight loss is all about a journey. You have a destination. But how do you know how far you’ve gone if you don’t stop to celebrate all of the smaller victories along the way? I hear so many people say “I need to lose fifty pounds.” Well, you might, but what happens when you lose ten? Are you celebrating? There’s always some progress to recognize in a day, even on the most challenging or discouraging days.
I just completed a new book that will come out in the Spring 2018. The book will equip dieters with the most overlooked factor in traditional dieting: the mental strategies required for permanent weight loss. Dieters know there is more to weight loss than “eat less and exercise” and this book will provide the missing piece they need to win at weight loss once and for all.
