Who We Are

Welcome to the LanCo Whole Health Group Blog! We started as a few employees at CNH interested in learning more about nutrition and general well-being. Since our first meeting in January of 2011 our membership has increasingly grown within our local company offices as well as to a number of friends and family outside of our area. We invite you to become a member as well!

For everyone else, check in often! A weekly email blast is created and sent to our members with Nutrition News, Tips, Workouts, Inspiration, Ideas, and more.

Nutrition - 22 Feb 2011 - Inspiration, Tips, and a Workout!

Good Morning, Crew!

Another beautiful winter's morning beckoned with the sun's early rays – "Come, come! And get in a great workout - shoveling, shoveling!" J Hopefully you all made it to where you needed to go this morning without issue.

Without further ado, let us welcome our newest member to the email club – Jeremiah!

It came to my attention that yesterday I neglected to link the story of Unconquerable Dave. So there you go. I think it's the pictures more than anything that are the most inspiring.

Just last night, I got in an inspiring email. My mother – who we've been working on for months to weed out some of the SAD (standard American diet) staples in her eating – has taken a huge leap forward. The best part was the picture! I love you, Mom; and Bonnie and I are extremely proud of you. Email copied here for the good of our group. (I know I didn't ask first but…forgive me?):

AND they are eating almond butter regularly and they bought almond meal (although I don't know if they used it yet...)

We rock :)

You would be so proud! Just threw out 3 bags of stuff that was outdated or too processed.....cake mixes, crackers, noodle mixes, snacks, pasta.....plus some that had those little worms in it - oough! Not much left besides nuts, raisins, dates, oatmeal, vinegar and oil. :-)

Okay, I took the liberty of highlighting that little number. Extra protein? ;-) Thanks, but I'm happy with my lean meat, fresh veggies, some fruit, nuts, seeds, and oils.

Does anyone else have an inspiring story to share? Hit reply - we'd love to hear it!

Nutrition Tip of the Day: Take it one step at a time if you have to. Today's attachment is from Dr. Kurt Harris of PaleoNu.com. He's put together a very simple list of how you can transition into a more healthy lifestyle one step at a time. Start at the top and work your way down. It's that simple! The only caveat is that he advocates no measuring, weighing, or counting of food. I have prescribed that for you to do for a reason. Keep at it. Eventually you too will be able to no longer do so. See the preview below.

Workout of the Day: A new feature – for those who need some ideas! Warm-up: 2 rounds of 15 reps each – keep moving until finished, Jumping Jacks, Pushups, Samson Stretch (15 secs each leg), Squat (hold at the bottom of last rep for 10 seconds) Workout: 3 Rounds for Time: 50 Steps of Walking Lunge, 50 Bicycle Crunches, 20 Leg Lifts. Good form trumps speed. Kiss the ground with your trailing knee and drive back up through the heel. Keep your core tight throughout. Lift from 6 inches to 24 inches – do not rest on the ground or in straight up if you can help it.

We have a meeting today! I look forward to seeing everyone who can attend at noon in the Building 43 conference room.

To laughing when everyone else is steaming…


P.S. Did anyone pick up on the fact that I like pictures? J

PaNu's 12 Steps

Here is a 12- step list of what to do. Go as far down the list as you can in whatever time frame you can manage. The further along the list you stop, the healthier you are likely to be. There is no counting, measuring, or weighing. You are not required to purchase anything specific from me or anyone else. There are no special supplements, drugs or testing required.*

1. Eliminate sugar (including fruit juices and sports drinks that contain HFCS) and all foods that contain flour.

2. Start eating proper fats - Use healthy animal fats or coconut fat to substitute fat calories for calories that formerly came from sugar and flour. Drink whole cream or coconut milk.

3. Eliminate gluten grains. Limit grains like corn and rice, which are nutritionally poor.
