NEW YEAR, NEW BEGINNING, NEW YOU

Team Up to RESET Your Life

RESET for a Better You

Each new year brings endless possibilities.

It’s a chance to start over, make positive changes, and become a better you. And if you’re looking for some inspiration to lose weight and look your best in 2019, here are some helpful tips to get you moving.

Most new year’s weight-loss resolutions are forgotten before January ends. Too often we bite off more than we can chew. We make crazy diet and workout goals that are far too aggressive, get frustrated, and quit. The key to your resolution success is to be consistent. Make small changes you can maintain. Things like portion control, drinking more water, tracking your exercise, and working out with friends can have big results providing you stick with it.

Action-Oriented Goals, Not Open-Ended Ones

Sure, you want to look better in 2019, but open-ended goals usually fall short. Instead of saying to yourself, “I want to lose weight,” try to think in terms of action-oriented, definable goals. For example, plan to walk 30 minutes three times a week. Instead of going strict vegan or jumping into a Paleo diet, try adding a green vegetable to every meal. Realistic goals equal real results.

Go Take a Walk

Speaking of walking 30 minutes a day, did you know a half-hour walk can burn up to 300 calories? That might not sound like much, but over the course of a year, it can make a big difference. Walking is a low-impact exercise, meaning it’s easier on your joints. The benefits of physical activity depend on three elements: intensity, duration, and frequency. Because walking is less intensive than running, you’ll have to walk for longer periods to get the same results.

Anytime you get your heart rate up, you’re doing your body a favor. Exercise makes the heart beat faster, and over time, strengthens the heart. Cardiovascular exercise improves blood circulation and can help with your mood. Find a good podcast or audiobook or invite a friend to take a walk around the block after work.

You Can’t Outrun Your Fork

There are approximately 3,500 calories in a pound. That means to lose or gain a pound, you have to burn or consume an additional 3,500 calories. Over the holidays, most of us probably overindulged a bit. Don’t worry. Slips don’t become falls in your overall health journey when you choose to get back on track.

Something I did last year that had a big impact, but felt very manageable, was to eliminate one bad eating habit each month throughout the year. For January, I gave up all soda. In February, I stopped eating donuts and bagels. In March, I made sure to eat at least two servings of vegetables for lunch and dinner. Pretty soon, I started to see results, and because it was a gradual replacement of bad foods with good ones, I found I had more energy and felt better.

Keep a food journal as you make your new year changes. Write down all of your meals and snacks. Be honest. When you examine your diet, you’ll see areas where you can improve and be able to celebrate the smart decisions you’ve made.

Love Your Workout

There’s nothing worse than signing up for a gym membership at the beginning of the year only to quit going after a couple of weeks. Not only is it a waste of money, it can be pretty disheartening. Also, sometimes those big box gyms can be pretty intimidating when you’re starting a new workout program. Instead of committing to a long-term gym membership, think about the activities you are interested in and find out if they have introductory classes. Lots of times, the first class is free.

Sign up for a boxing lesson or try out a yoga class. Maybe you’ve always wanted to try Zumba or join a cycling group. It doesn’t matter what you do to get moving, just make sure it’s an exercise program that’s interesting and something you like. It’s already hard to get motivated to work out; don’t make it worse by doing something you hate.

Drink Water

It seems simple enough, but getting enough water is important to a successful workout program. Not only do you need water to stay hydrated, but drinking water can also help lubricate your joints, help with digestion, regulate body temperature, and aid in other essential body functions.  Best of all, water has zero calories.

Make sure to drink enough water before and after your workouts. Your body needs water to help energize muscles and support your kidneys. Fluids also help your body flush and remove waste.

Drink water during each meal. Keep a bottle of water with you in your car, at your desk, or in your bag. And add to your hydration by eating more water-filled fruits and vegetables. About 20 percent of our fluid intake comes from food.

NAUGHTY OR NICE? BE BOTH WITH NUTRIMEAL

It’s said, “It’s not what you do between Thanksgiving and New Year’s that matters most for your diet, it’s what you do in between New Years and Thanksgiving that counts.”

Makes sense. Throughout the year, we try to make healthy choices, maintain a good diet, and get plenty of exercise. But during the holiday season, we celebrate together, and more often than not, indulge in food and drinks outside of our normal habits.

Eat Mindfully, Not Mindlessly

With all these temptations, you’ll want a plan in place so you won’t pack on the pounds while you enjoy the festivities. Add Nutrimeal™ as a meal replacement, and you’ll savor the holidays while maintaining a healthy diet.

 

Try This, Not That

Nutrimeal is a low-glycemic shake, rich in dietary fiber and protein. Available in chocolate and vanilla flavors, Nutrimeal is the perfect, satisfying meal when you’re on the go. Best of all, it’s a great base to build your personalized shake. Blend it with fruits or vegetables to give it an extra flavorful boost. Or get into the season with these holiday-themed recipes. No matter how you enjoy Nutrimeal, you’ll get the following benefits:

  • 15 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber
  • Gluten free
  • Complete non-GMO protein
  • Low-glycemic index to help reduce carbohydrate cravings and provide sustained energy, to help keep you feeling fuller, longer

Thrive, Not Survive

As you get ready for your next family gathering, try these simple tricks to sample all your yummy favorites without the overeating misery:

  • Portion control. Don’t deprive yourself, just eat smaller portions and less often.
  • Eat when you’re hungry. Don’t eat just because food is available.
  • Slow down. Enjoy each bite and put your fork down as you chew.
  • Pay attention. Mindlessly snacking can lead to overeating. Make each meal count.
  • Sneak in a workout. It won’t offset all the calories you might eat, but it’ll help.
  • Know when and where you’ll be eating. You’re less likely to overdo it if you know you’ll be joining family for a larger dinner.

And when you’re making your holiday plans, add Nutrimeal into your routine. With these convenient, travel-sized pouches, you’ll be able to shake up some goodness as you rush from the office party to your next family function.

USANA Scam? 15 Reasons Why USANA is a Legitimate Opportunity

 

You’re skeptical. Good! With all the schemes in today’s world, you shouldn’t be anything less. Maybe you’ve heard of sites entitling themselves “USANA scam”, and you’re looking to validate the organization.

We can clear up the confusion pretty quickly, but we invite you to be curious and skeptical. Be sure to do your research and come to an educated conclusion. We hope that this article will serve as one additional resource to your research. We intend to show you as transparently as we can why USANA is not a scam, but in fact a legitimate opportunity.

Before we get going, we would like to echo the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and preface that you need to be aware and vigilant to avoid scams, and to do your research. The best way to really know is to watch for updates on scam alerts by the FTC or your local news and to look into the company closely. We couldn’t agree more. That’s why we can’t be clear enough on defining who we are at USANA, what we do, and why.

So, let’s walk through 15 reasons why USANA is a legitimate opportunity, and why the term USANA scam has no value.

1. Fantastic Products

USANA’s business model defines us as a direct sales company, because of one really important reason—we have products to sell and people are buying them because they want our products and not as a requirement to participate. (See the section entitled “What Is a Pyramid Scheme and What is Legitimate Marketing?” in previous link.) And what great products they are!

Our products are so great, that we have been recognized and named for being the Top Rated Direct Selling Brand by ConsumerLab.com for multiple years. And quite frankly, we’re pretty proud of the accomplishment. It just so happens that last year (2016) we broke the glass ceiling and reached over $1 billion (US) in sales, and we don’t plan on slowing down.

And yet, we take our business plan another step further. While scams clearly offer no actual benefit to you, many of our legally operating competitors meet the bare minimum requirement on truth in marketing and sales. USANA offers 100 percent returns on products to Associates for a whole year, which is far more than what the law requires of us. The truth? Our consumers don’t need to return our products because they get what they bought and love the results.

There’s a reason we’re so confident and so clear in our resolve: our fantastic products started with an ambitious vision.

Dr. Myron Wentz wanted to make the world a healthier and happier place. He discovered the value of antioxidants to counter the negative effects of free radicals in the human body, and has worked ever since to create a reality where people can live their happiest lives being their healthiest selves. As a result, in 1992, USANA was born.

So, why direct selling in the first place? Why not sell the products in stores where people can easily find them? We use direct selling with the intention to help people get what they really want: freedom. Freedom to do what they want and when they want. The opportunity to build a USANA business isn’t for everyone on this planet, and that’s ok. It doesn’t need to be. We don’t profess to have a quick “get rich” plan, or to have the “only way” to earn a living. But we do claim the ability to give people another option to build wealth and establish financial stability, especially when they already love our products and are seeing great results. It’s an opportunity for those looking to build their own business, but may be wary of doing it all alone.

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME OF DAY TO TAKE SUPPLEMENTS AND VITAMINS?

best time of day to take supplements

Taking supplements is an important way to meet nutrient needs and fill nutrition gaps that may be present in your diet. USANA® Nutritional supplements provide directions for use on every label. Some product labels recommend that you take the tablets in divided doses (example: two tablets in the morning and two in the evening) or spread throughout the day.

Taking vitamins and minerals in divided daily doses (with a meal or at least some type of food) is preferred. It helps with proper dissolution and absorption (the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, K, and E need a little fat for absorption), and it helps you maintain a good blood profile of important nutrients to support your health.

A morning meal (breakfast) is a great time to take your first dose of CellSentials™Body Rox™Usanimals™, CellSentials Prenatal or the HealthPak™. Since many of us eat breakfast at home, taking your vitamins and minerals at that time is a convenient way to start your day off right. In addition, the B vitamins in your CellSentials will help to convert food to cellular energy for a strong way to start the day. Your evening meal is a good time to take your second dose of CellSentials, Body Rox, or Usanimals.

If lunch is a more convenient time for you to take your supplements, then consume your supplements with lunch. The most important point is that you consume your vitamins and minerals with food, to help with proper dissolution and absorption. Only you can decide the best time to take supplements.

Calcium and magnesium supplements can be taken throughout the day, in divided doses, and even right before bed. The form of calcium you use determines if you should take it with a meal, snack, or on an empty stomach. Calcium carbonate requires the presence of food for better absorption. Calcium citrate can be taken with or without food, as it does not require food for absorption. USANA MagneCal D™ is best taken with a meal or a light snack.

Supplemental calcium is best in smaller, more frequent doses to support absorption.

Digestion supplements like USANA Digestive Enzyme should be taken right before you eat to help you digest food more efficiently.

Celavive®: 5 Steps to Beautiful Skin

Let’s face it, not all skincare lines are created equal and neither is our skin. My skin has gone through plenty of harsh cleansers, swampy-smelling masks, and layer upon layer of concealing makeup. I even used to carry around tissues to blot the oil off my skin throughout the day.

But now, I have a skin secret I can’t keep quiet about. I’ve said goodbye to worrying about an oil-ridden complexion after just one month of personalizing my skincare routine with Celavive® product.

Celavive Product Line

I’m a sharer, so I want to let you in on my skin success story in hopes you can share in the limelight. I’ll walk you through how to use each product and what makes each product unique.

Pro Tip: If you’re worried about your skin’s reaction to a new skincare product, do a spot test first. Apply just a bit of the product to your neck or cheek and see if it causes any kind of irritation.

Celavive: Go Beyond What You See

Here’s what sets the Celavive skincare line apart from the rest: it’s formulated with USANA’s InCelligence Technology® and/or Olivol™, which target your individual beauty needs. These products are specifically designed for your skin type: dry/sensitive or combination/oily. The entire line of Celavive skincare products has been dermatologically tested and is paraben free, so you can feel confident about what you’re using on your face. Like with all of USANA’s products, there’s scientific research at the foundation of these creams, gels, and cleansers that focuses on nourishing our skin in unique ways.

Celavive Face Wash

Check out USANA’s dermatologist, Dr. Jennifer Lee taking a closer look at the science behind what makes Celavive skincare so unique and powerful.

Step by Step

 1. Bare-Faced Beauty

How To: On a cotton round, apply three or four drops of Conditioning Makeup Remover and gently wipe off your makeup. This product doesn’t leave an oily residue or irritate your eyes. Not only does the makeup remover dissolve long-wear and waterproof makeup, it also moisturizes and pre-cleanses your complexion.

Celavive Model

2. Cleanse

Wash away the day and defeat impurities at the same time. Whether I’m washing off day-old makeup or desperately willing myself to wake up after hitting the snooze button, I’ve come to love washing my face. Using this cleanser helps me focus on me for a few moments and gets me back in touch with taking care of myself.

The Creamy Foam Cleanser is perfect for my combination, oily skin, and my mom loves using the Gentle Milk Cleanser that rehydrates her dry, sensitive skin. Both these cleansers have been clinically shown to provide up to 24 hours of rich hydration to your skin after just one application.

Lather Up, Love

Celavive Love

How To: Dampen your face with warm water and apply just a pea-size amount of Creamy Foam Cleanser, or two pumps of Gentle Milk Cleanser, on your fingertips. Gently rub the cleanser in a circular motion over your face. Be kind to those cheekbones. No need to use any elbow grease, these products are cleaning powerhouses. Rinse your face clean and lightly pat dry with a soft washcloth.

3.  Tone

Before Celavive, I always associated toner with a harsh chemical smell and a slight burning sensation. None of that describes Perfecting Toner. This toner brings my skin to perfect peace by balancing the pH levels and gently purifying my complexion. It’s just pore-fect.

Ready, Sweep, Tone

Celavive product

How To: On a cotton round, apply three or four drops and sweep it over your face. This product is pretty concentrated, so no need to completely soak your cotton pad. Don’t rinse this off—your skin will absorb it quickly. Thanks to the Perfecting Toner, your skin is more receptive for the next Celavive products you’ll use.

Pro Tip: If you’re worried about how your skin will react to new products, try switching out one product at a time. If you’re looking for products to cleanse your skin, I’d say a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer are a must. If you’re looking to specifically target visible signs of skin aging, then make sure you try the Vitalizing Serum, Hydrating Eye Essence, and Protective Night Cream or Gel.

4. Enhance

Here’s the fun part of the Celavive Regimen that’s hyper-focused on enhancing your inner beauty. Treat your skin to some rejuvenation. Both the Vitalizing Serum and Hydrating Eye Essence feature the Celavive ingredient complex that strengthens the skin matrix and creates dramatically younger-looking skin.

Vitalize Your Good Side

How To: Apply two or three pumps of the Vitalizing Serum evenly across your face and neck in an upward and outward movement. I love the sweet, earthy smell of this serum. Also, I usually wait a few seconds for it to really soak into my skin before moving on.

Celavive Vitalizing Serum

Eye Spy

How to: This molded, metal applicator makes application a breeze. Massage a bit of the Hydrating Eye Essence around your eyes and pat your fingertips across the area to help it soak in. I split it up between my eyes, laugh lines, and that bit between my eyebrows that crinkles when I squint. Cover all the bases.

Celavive

5. Hydrate

If there’s one skin tip that’s been driven into my head since middle school, it’s the importance of moisturizer. I live in the dry, desert air of Utah, so I’m used to the harsh winters leaving my complexion flaky, dull, and uncomfortable. Olivol™ (the star of these moisturizers) channels botanicals like olive, apple, and watermelon fruit extracts to provide rich hydration— apple-y it liberally. It’s the final step in your regimen before you head out the door to conquer the day.

Seize the Day

How To: Apply one or two pumps of Protective Day Cream or a pearl-sized amount of Protective Day Lotion across your forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, and neck. Smooth it out across your face in an upward and outward motion. Now, your skin is hydrated and ready to take on the day.

Pro Tip: Hydration is great for your overall health. If you’re drinking enough water throughout the day, your body will feel beautified and your skin will glow. After all, our skin is our first line of defense. I’ve made it a habit to keep the water bottle at my desk full at all times.

Hey, Sleepy Head

Celavive Hey, Sleepy HeadHow To: Much like you did with your moisturizer this morning, apply a pearl-sized amount of Protective Night Cream or Gel across your entire face and smooth it in and upward and outward motion.  The natural botanicals and powerful peptides moisturize and revitalize your skin while you score some beauty rest.

Celavive Confidence

Celavive makes it easy for me to skip out on foundation every day now. Let’s make this the year of being confident in our own skin. Upgrade your makeup bag with some Celavive products and show off that gorgeous face.

We are happy to announce this Celavive will be available for sale February 2nd. Follow the link in our bios for connect with shopping.
