Mindfulness and Nutrition
Let me ask you about the best meal you’ve ever eaten. What made it so memorable? Was it the smell that hit you first? The taste of the components of the meal? The texture and the way the food felt in your mouth? Or was it the environment, the company you were in, or the

How to Lose Unwanted Body Weight Forever? Ask a (LiftOff) Coach
“So, Coach Mike, is this workout going to help me burn fat and lose weight?” Or, “This type of workout isn’t helping me burn fat and lose weight, so why should I do it Coach Mike?” I’ve been faced with these questions far more times than I can count, and every time, I give roughly
