Welcome

My name is Lisa Tsakos, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, corporate speaker and author. This blog provides professional advice from a nutrition and weight loss expert (me!) about corporate and family health. Here you'll find recipes and articles that address work-related challenges like eating on-the-go and maximizing your productivity with the right foods. You'll also find out about how you can help your children develop strong immune systems and healthy bodies. As a nutrition instructor, I often found myself thinking, "When I have kids, this is how I will feed them." With two toddlers, I have the opportunity to practice what I have been preaching and to try out my theories. So far, they seem to be working! Follow me on my journey and also on Twitter @NuVitalityHW.

GUT INSTINCT: IMPROVING DIGESTION NATURALLY
It is said that you are what you eat, but more accurately, you are what you digest. When digestion is impaired, the human body becomes less capable of absorbing essential nutrients. Moreover, for those who suffer from digestive disorders, such as acid reflux or IBS, each meal is a cause for concern. This session takes you on a tour of the digestive system, teaching you how to optimize each step of the process and discussing natural remedies for common digestive disorders along the way.
 
NUTRITION ON THE ROAD
Long haul truck drivers, police officers, construction workers and couriers know first hand that being on the job for long stretches of time is an obstacle to good health. With a little knowledge and creativity, nutritious meals that will keep employees healthy and alert at work can be prepared with minimal effort.
  
GOOD MOOD FOOD
Research shows that probiotics can have a tremendous impact on your disposition since the ‘good bacteria’ in the gut are just as responsible for producing brain chemicals (like serotonin, the ‘good mood’ neurotransmitter) as your brain is! Learn more about this and the role of many more foods and nutrients scientifically proven to improve mood and attitude in this fascinating 1-hour session.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR BIOMETRIC RESULTS
So, you know your numbers… now what? This workshop is intended as a follow-up to biometric screening. Once participants have received their data, many organizations end their support there. Employees don't know where to turn for advice or help. This seminar provides practical advice on how to mitigate the risk factors associated with metabolic syndrome, a high BMI, high blood sugar levels, hypertension, heart disease biomarkers and discusses the role of exercise in all of the above.

THE ULTIMATE WEIGHT LOSS PLAN

Weight management is daunting for many, but it doesn’t have to be. Many who are striving to achieve their perfect weight are following advice or weight loss fads that don’t work for their body type. Based on techniques used by the top weight loss experts around the world, this presentation teaches the most effective strategies for reducing weight safely, quickly and permanently in just one hour! A menu plan and eating schedule are provided to participants. (This seminar may also be promoted as “The Ultimate Weight Wellness Plan”)
