Be Inspired: Meet Paul Leiby

ARE YOU OR DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE LIVING WITH CROHN’S DISEASE OR ULCERATIVE COLITIS (Inflammatory Bowel Disease – IBD) THAT STRIVES TO LIVE WELL DESPITE THEIR DIAGNOSIS? This can mean a whole lot of things to different people. We at Tri Nutrition want to create a space where we can meet, connect with, follow and support those Living Well with IBD and learn from each other 🙂 .  Seeing how others can Live Well with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis inspires us to also build courage, strength and faith in ourselves to Live Well, too. To us, Living Well with IBD means living as best that we possibly can with where we currently are in our journey right now.

Tri-Nutrition’s “Be Inspired” campaign has been designed to:

  1. Raise awareness of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
  2. Spotlight international Leaders Living Well with Crohn’s and colitis: share their story, their top tips for others with IBD, and offer a way to connect and follow them (as a virtual ‘mentor’ and inspirator).
  3. Provide a dose of positivity, “light” and inspiration to the often very negative, difficult, emotional and life-changing events that someone with IBD experiences.

Still out of the gym for the next few days, but I figured I would post some motivation for myself and for others. The picture on the left is from January 2010 after about 4 months of lifting, believe it or not. I thought I actually had muscle at this point in time 😂😂😂, I weighed about 150lbs. The picture on the right is from just a few days ago at around 200lbs even. You definitely can reach your goals naturally – it will just take a lot of time, sleep, good food, supplementation, and hard, consistent training. However once you have built this muscle, nothing can take it away from you…not even disease or sickness. Get after it! #Motivation #Transformation #NaturalProgression #NaturalBodybuilding

How our Environment Contributes to Disease and How To Fix It

pollution

The #1 cause of disease is stress – but there’s more to this picture than meets the eye and I’ll tell you why. Stress is more than just the stress that we experience at work or when we’re running late for an appointment. There are actually many forms of stress that we may have never thought about before.

One major stress to our body is the quality of food that we are consuming. Click Here to read why.

A second major stress to our body is environmental stress. Sorry to be a ‘Debbie-Downer’ but there is a lot more pollution floating around in the air today than there was 100 years ago – a fact we all know. There is also a lot of newly created chemicals in our standard household cleaners and daily beauty and hygiene regimes. Add to that, 24/7 vibrational, electrical pollution that our bodies and cells feel too, especially now that we all hold transmitting devices in our pockets (cell phones). Our bodies are amazing but they feel STRESSED having to figure out what to do with all of this!

This article is going to take a look at:

  • why our environment could be causing us stress,
  • tell you everything you need to know about it,
  • how to reduce this stress in your life,
  • nutritional support from your nutritionists (us!) that you can do NOW!
  • a recipe (because we love recipes!)

How the Food we Eat Contributes to Disease and How to Fix It ASAP

The #1 cause of disease is stress – but there’s more to this picture than meets the eye and I’ll tell you why. Stress is more than just the stress that we experience at work or when we’re running late for an appointment. There are actually many forms of stress that we may have never thought about before.

One major stress to our body is the quality of food that we are consuming. Have you thought about the way our food is grown, prepared and cultivated or even the types of foods we put into our bodies? A lot has changed since our grandparents’ time, and maybe that’s why my grandmothers just don’t understand the concept of ‘organic’. It actually causes a lot of stress on our bodies because our bodies have to work so hard to figure out how to use what goes in and how to get rid of it. Sometime’s this can cause an enormous amount of stress that we can definitely feel but may have become to immune to.

This article is going to take a look at:

  • why our food could be causing us stress,
  • tell you everything you need to know about it,
  • how to reduce this stress in your life,
  • nutritional support from your nutritionists (us!) that you can do NOW!
  • and a recipe (because we love recipes!).
