Acai Nutrition

acai nutrition
The acai berry is an anomaly among fruits. It is perhaps the most nutritious and powerful fruit ever discovered.

What does it contain?

  • A protein profile similar to an egg
  • A fatty acid profile similar to olive oil
  • The leading source of anthocyanins
  • High fiber with a low glycemic index
  • More than 16 phytonutrients and antioxidants
  • Copious amounts of trace minerals and macrominerals
  • Plant sterols*, particularly one that helps to lower cholesterol

    * Sterols are parts of plant cell membranes delivering many benefits to the human body, mainly the decrease of blood plasma cholesterol.

    The acai berry is loaded with vitamins, minerals, it contains every amino acid known to man - essential and non-essential, it has omega 3 fatty acids and little known omega 9 fatty acids. The acai berry boosts the body’s immune system and provides it with protection from free radical damage.

    It is because of all these nutrients and properties that Acai berry is considered to be one of the most concentrated forms of fruit nutrients.

    People can live on the acai berry as the only source of nutrition for more than six months and show no signs of malnutrition.

    In Brazil, acai juice is fed to babies if their mothers have a problem with their breast milk.

Never Felt Better

I can't tell you how amazing I am feeling. I'm still extremely energized and at less then 10 weeks out from comp i'm loving my prep.

I trained chest yesterday morning, did 40 minutes cardio, worked, went to the other gym (the one I don't work from) did another 30min cardio session, was about to walk out when I ran into a friend who was about to do shoulders and I said "what the heck i'll join you"! So two training and cardio sessions in one day.

After waking up 5am this morning for work I thought I would be trashed from yesterday's craziness but I wasn't, in fact I had an awesome 40 minutes cardio session this morning - somebody stop me!!!

I have been feeling this way for a few weeks now, since starting my daily doses of Mona-Vie. I have a feeling my body was lacking in some nutrients that I just couldn't get from food, multi vitamins or any of my other supplements that I was taking to try and pull me out of that drained mess I was in before. My last prep was one of the hardest and judging by the way I am training now (and hindsight) I know that I had not had enough nutrition to prevent me from being over trained or whatever it was that made me feel weak.

I now train the way I used too and have so much enthusiasm and spirit. I love cardio again. My mind is so positive and I want to take on the world!

The Mona-vie is so potent with high nutrition and micro nutrients and enzymes that really get absorbed well due to it being in liquid form. Whatever my body was being starved of is in that 60ml shot I have twice a day.

This Saturday I am getting my first cycling coaching lesson (weather permitting). I'm excited, can't wait.

I see JD on Thursday and i'm looking forward to that, never thought I would be excited about skin folds lol. I can feel the changes, see the changes so I know the results will be good.

I hope everyone is well.

I can't keep up with myself

Things are flying at me from all directions so bare with me.
I saw JD last Thursday and it all went better then I expected. He was very happy with my results but more so because he can see that I have adopted a good eating plan post comp that has helped me to keep my skin folds at a great place. All I can say about that is I haven't even put much effort into it because it wasn't difficult, he really knows his stuff! Eating on JD's post comp plan pretty much effortless, preparation is the key, not self-discipline.

So it's prep time and i'm in a good place to kick it off and get going for the big day. We did discuss the fact that I will be coming in leaner in 11 weeks time, i'm excited about it. I really believe I can do this as I feel fantastic since I've been drinking Mona-vie, it has giving me endless amounts of energy and nutrition which is keeping my mind positive and my emotions high even though i'm lacking sleep again.

Mona vie is going well, I have had alot of people joining me in this awesome business and I find myself meeting with people most days of the week now. I'm buzzing from it really I am!

I don't know if you remember I mentioned that I was working on getting into Alzheimer's Australia where i would have the opportunity to work with th carer of dementia suffers etc? Well I got a call today and things are looking very positive there. I'm excited and scared at the same time. Excited due to my passion for health and nutrition and wanting to help others, nervous about public speaking. I will need to overcome this as my dreams are way my important and I don't want to lose site of them over a fear that can be overcome.
I will let you know more about what my role will be once it's confirmed.

So between personal training, prepping, Mona-vie, Alzheimer's Australia and family i'm pretty busy lol. And that's still not all, i'm about to take on another sport lol. Cycling, the real deal. I have to get a date together for my first coaching lesson in a week or so. It will be on a track on a bike that I will be cleatered into. I can't wait to give this a try.

Hey Hey

I'm off to see JD tomorrow yippee! I haven't seen him since my comp and now I am less then 12 weeks out, sooo over due!

Training is going great guns to say the least. My weights are on the increase and i'm so stoked to me training hard and heavy again. I'm even enjoying cardio again, in fact I am chaffing at the bit to get on and start moving, i'm just enjoying it and the added energy is fabulous.

Looks like I picked up another sponsorship, it will be confirmed once I meet up with the sponsor in person next week, so very exciting, will tell you more once it's confirmed.

More updates tomorrow after I see JD.

Bursting with energy

I have got so much energy since starting on a new product this week it has me jumping out of my skin LOL.
My cardio has gone through the roof just because I need to release some energy.

It's a natural product extremely high in antioxidents and has me on some kind of a natural high as well :-)

I haven't time to go into it as I need to get going but will go into detail very soon.

I'm so excited!

Competition Decision

I am competing in a little over 12 weeks time. I have decided that doing two comps a day apart is not a good idea as I lose condition the following day and it's bloody exhausting! So I had to make a choice, ANB or WNBF? It was a very difficult decision (typical of me not being able to make a decision, to busy analyzing everything to bits), I have decided to try the WNBF again, that was the direction I was aiming at since last year so best to follow through.

I know it will be a tough event as Vicky Thomas (World Champ) is competing that day, but at the same time it will be great standing up there next to her as she is an awesome athlete and a supportive friend.

It was a difficult decision as I truly had the best comp experience at the ANB Asia-Pacific International, the vibe and atmosphere was incredible. If only they were at least a week apart then I would do both. I will be competing with the ANB again for sure.

So I am now trainer-less! I'm going to give it a shot on my own. I believe I am ready for this, but who knows I may change my mind later lol.
JD is awesome but not always easy to get a hold of! I figured I wanted to implement a few new things that I believe would benefit me in my prep also. So i'm excited about leaning down again.

Good luck to everyone competing at the All Females this weekend, wish I was there to cheer you guys on.
