    If you are not using your diet record sheets and accountability forms already...what are you waiting for? We only have four weeks together so you need to start now.

    We will talk about the dry skin brushing next week. If you do not own a dry skin brush, let me know and I will bring you one next week as a gift from me.

    As you are reading this, take the time to take 3-5 deep belly breaths. This is an important habit to create in your life.

  6. Hi Glen...I don't own a dry skin brush (not sure what that even is???) You are right about the deep breaths! Need to set my alarm...only way I can remember :) Also not sure what the DRS is? Have a great weekend! Kit

  7. Hi Kit,

    I will bring a dry skin brush for you on Wednesday, so no worries. The DRS is to start logging what you eat and how you are responding to these choices. This will help us more accurately assess your Nutritional ID is a couple of weeks.

    Be sure to use the diet record sheets daily to keep record of what you eat and more importantly, how you react to these choices.

  9. Lionel and Felicity,

    Just checking in to be sure everyone has done their anaerobic exercises at least once since the program began. Remember the importance of building some muscle mass in regard to your overall health and wellness.

    On the off days you are walking 20 minutes per day beyond your usual daily walking.

    Let me know if you have any comments or questions.

  11. Yep...doing the exercises! For me that is the easy part :) I'm having trouble with the breathing every hour (just figured out how to set alarm on iPhone) and the "shut down" an hour before bedtime and getting to bed before 10:30pm. The water intake too...I always thought I was a good water drinker. Just not drinking as much as you recommend. Gotta figure out how to get it all in and stop 2 hours before bed time. I bought a glass water dispenser that holds the amount of H2O I should be drinking each day so I figure I'll fill that every morning. I'm now watching the gluten DVD!

  14. Hey Glen. i couldn't make it tonight. I have been ill all day. Could you please send me the link for tonights meeting when you get it. I am really bummed about not being there. Any info you can give me would be great. Did you leave a dry brush at the Dr. J's office for me or should I come and pick it up at your office. Let me know. Thanks. Kathy

  15. Hi Glen: I have a question regarding the gluten free. I have a recipe for a barley casserole side dish. It contains dried barley that is browned then cooked in the oven with chicken broth. Is that considered gluten free or not? I see that items that are derived from barley are not good, but I don't see raw barley. Thanks.

  16. Glen, I've had some folks on facebook interested in gluten info. Do you have any objections to me posting any of your stuff on facebook? Of course, I'll give you credit and post your website.

  17. Sure Bill, feel free to share as you see fit.

  18. Hello Kathy,

    I did leave the brush at Bill's office and you should have received all your information yesterday. Please let me know if you did not.

  19. Kathy,

    If there is barley in this, you want to eliminate this, especially during the initial 60 day period.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Greetings!

    Remember that this week is not only eliminated gluten but also creating a higher focus on your fundamentals of health. Don't start something new and leave the other behind.

    Let me know if you are having any challenges.

  21. Greetings!

    If you were not at the last workshop be sure to visit www.DepkeWellness.com and visit the gluten intolerance page. At the bottom of that page you will find the link to assess your likelihood of a gluten challenge. Please assess ASAP and follow the gluten free recommendations if you score a 5 or above.

    Let me know if you have any comments or questions.

  22. Glen,
    I really feel that in order to give my fatigued adrenals a fighting chance...not only do I need to go gluten free, I also need to eliminate caffeine and chocolate/sugar from my diet. I've been 'self medicating' my fatigue with caffeine and chocolate for a long time. I wanted to know if you have any advice or tips on how to survive the first few days? I know to follow the items on the accountability form for sure!! I also need to keep my mindset positive and focused on the ultimate goal of fitness and optimum health. The cupboards have been cleared. The fridge is restocked with healthy options cooked and ready to go. I had my last little 'splurge' of caffeine and chocolate. I'm ready to make this change!!! Any other suggestions would be so greatly appreciated. Kit

  23. Hi Kit,

    I would suggest to take it one step at a time. Start with the gluten and take it from there. Doing too much at once tends to set up failure. We can discuss this further on Wednesday.

  24. Greetings!

    I trust that you have all been gluten free so far and are already finding this easier than you may have originally thought. If you are having any challenges let me know so I can assist you.

    Also, if you have not addressed the Inner Game with Bob, I suggest you set up that appointment ASAP. The Inner Game is what makes commitments to yourself not only possible but easy.

  25. Greetings!

    Be sure to continue your focus on the fundamentals as well as gluten free. Everyone should be checking most, if not all, of the boxes on your accountability sheet.

    Looking forward to assessing your Nutritional ID on Wednesday.

    Don't forget to bring your accountability forms with this evening. Get ready to understand what foods are right for your individuality. Tonight is going to be quite a bit of fun.

  27. Greetings!

    I am very proud of what you are all doing so far. For those that know they can take it to another level, do this now. Don't wait, you have already been waiting the rest of your life.

    Your meal plans will be emailed today.

    Remember fundamentals of health, gluten free and introduce your meal plans. Most important, use your meal diary daily.

  28. Greetings!

    Recognize that you are getting out of the program so far is exactly what you are putting into it. If you're not happy with your results, it's time to step it up.

  29. Hi Glen: Have a question. I see that the mixed type can have bacon. Is there a specific kind or brand that you would recommend? and how much is the appropriate serving? Thanks. Kathy

  30. Hi Kathy,

    I would recommended an organic and nitrate free bacon and 3 to 4 slices should work for you.

  31. Thanks Glen. Have a great weekend!! Kathy

    Please remember to use your diet record sheets daily. This is what will allow us to fine tune your meal plan with our next workshop.

  33. Greetings!

    Remember, if you are needing snacks between your meals, we will need to make some adjustments to your meal choices. The meal diary is of utmost importance to achieve this.

  34. Greetings!

    Time to put this all together tomorrow night. Fundamentals of health, gluten free, Nutritional ID, health and happiness!

    If you are following the plan, I know you are well on your way to achieving your health goals.

    See you all tomorrow night at Yorba Linda Family Chiropractic.

  36. Hi Glen: I remembered the other question I had. I like to drink protein drinks for breakfast sometimes. I use rice milk, a protein powder, a raw grass fed egg, a banana and some berries. Now, looking at my nutritional plan should I be having any fruit for breakfast? I do feel good with it and it ties me over until lunch, but I want to make sure it is ok for me to eat. Thanks Glen.

  37. Hi Kathy,

    If you are looking to lose weight, you want to keep fruit to a minimum or not at all. It would also be an advantage to have a couple of bites of the last evenings left over protein prior to the shake. This will help will balancing the oxidation.
