When talking to students at the gym and potential personal training clients, one of the first things I ask about is their goals. Both in fitness and overall health and wellness. I often hear things like:
- I want to lose weight
- I want to lose this stubborn belly fat
- I want to sleep better and wake up with energy
- I wish I could just stop munching at night
- I wish I wasn’t so stiff and achy
- I want to reduce swelling, bloating and looking tired and worn down
- I have no energy! Its hard to find motivation to come exercise by the end of the day
And I’m going to be honest here, my list of goals looks similar to the list above. I have had trouble sleeping the past few months my brain doesn’t want to shut down.
I’ve gained a little bit of unexpected weight. Not sleeping, working 2-3 jobs, studying for my personal training exam, and reading and blogging about food took an unexpected toll on my body.
My night time eating is sometimes beyond my control. Although I don’t let it get to binge eating status, I do find that some nights I just can’t get out of the kitchen. I find myself munching on dates with walnuts, or zucchini muffins or even just handfuls of chocolate chips. It’s a habit that leads to unwanted and unnecessary calorie intake.
Like so many others, I sit for 10-12 hours a day. Between my commute and my 8 hour work day at a desk, I find that I am very stiff, especially by the end of the week. Sometimes I notice that my face and my joints look and feel swollen. Not fun!
Here’s my problem. I didn’t know what changes to make that would help with all of these problems. I know I need to sleep more, but that’s easier said than done. I already eat clean 85% of the time, so my diet is in check for the most part (I may eat too much some days).
I was recently talking to a friend of mine that is a nutritionist. She recommended a new product that she was using. She noticed that the swelling in her joints after running was gone within 3 days of using this product. She also mentioned feeling more rested. The products were made from 100% whole foods, all raw, organic, non-GMO, no additives or chemicals. Right up my alley!
Although I’m usually super skeptical of taking products like this, after reviewing the ingredients, I agreed to try these out. The product is called SevenPoint2. If you don’t already know, 7.2 is the ideal pH balance of your saliva. She then explained to me that this product was actually developed to help people regain the pH balance in their bodies. The blood of most Americans is very acidic, which can cause all sorts of unhealthy ailments in the body including weight gain, headaches, acne, tight stiff muscles, swelling in the joints and so much more.
I started researching the alkaline diet, which is what is recommended to help move your body from acidic to a more alkaline state, hopefully to achieve pH balance of the blood once again. I wasn’t surprised to find my favorite veggies on the alkaline diet, but I realized that although I eat green food everyday, I might not have been getting all the micronutirents my body needed. Luckily, there is an amazing greens product that will provide an entire day’s worth of veggies in just one serving. SevenPoint2 greens is a raw greens powder, made with 20 fruits and veggies that doesn’t use radiation, pressure screening, heat drying, bleaching or other processes that would adulterate the quality of the greens. Unlike the greens Dave was taking, these are organic, vegan, no soy, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, kosher and non-GMO. The best part, these taste amazing. No joke I walked around the office with a quart sized mason jar of greens and water and just leisurely sipped my greens during meetings. I didn’t have to use a shaker cup or anything, these easily just stir into water and taste like a combination of apple and strawberries, no lawn mower taste I’m used to with traditional greens products. You guys know I’m a girl who loves her protein powder. The SevenPoint2 protein powder has an ingredient list like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It’s certified organic, non-GMO, gluten free, soy free, dairy free, sugar free, vegan, raw/sprouted, nightshade free, no carrageenan, no artificial flavors, no synthetic vitamins, no artificial ingredients or sweeteners. Not even stevia. And still with none of that, it tastes like cake. They recommend that you drink this with the greens, but I like to have an icy cold smoothie in the morning so I made this with frozen spinach and coconut butter every morning and was full till 2 pm! The protein powder is low in carbs, high in fiber, low glycemic and provides a complete profile of amino acids (the building blocks of your muscles). This program also has a recovery product that will help your body recover from intense workouts. This would be perfect for all my friends out there that are training for marathons, that lift heavy weights or exercise at high intensities. The recovery product has been used to help athletes quickly recover, and people are reaching new PR records using this product. This product helps remove lactic acid quickly from the body, allowing you to recover quicker and let you walk like a normal human being the next day. When I trained for my half, I would have to shuffle my feet the next day, because my body was so stiff and sore.

The key to feeling great the next day and sleeping like a baby is to take the Alkaline product every night before bed. I was super skeptical and almost didn’t take this product, assuming that my diet was already pretty alkaline. Then I found out that lack of sleep and stress are the two biggest reasons your body is acidic. Ooops! So I tried this. The first day, I didn’t notice much. The second day I popped out of bed with the first alarm and I didn’t have that afternoon slump. By the third day I didn’t’ even need my afternoon snack I had so much energy! Seriously, this combined with the other products changed the way I was feeling. And for once I was able to sleep without laying restless for 20-30 minutes trying to calm down.
