Dr. Joey's weight loss tip of the month:

For optimal weight loss results, what you eat after 3pm and on matters most! Remember, eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper to help obtain that skinny waistline you are looking for. For one week, try dropping your grain in the evening and watch the numbers on the scale go down!

Products we cannot stop loving!

The Body Shop's sweet lemon whip body lotion – When it comes to natural creams, I am a bit of a junkie. The Body Shop's sweet lemon whip cream is one of my new favorites! If you like the smell of fresh, natural lemon – then this cream is for you!

This light, lemon lotion will leave your skin feeling supple, soft and smooth.

The lemon seed oil is high in anti-oxidants and the Vitamin C helps to moisturize and soften your skin!

Bounce bars – I am always looking for grab and go snacks after a work out or at 3pm, when most people experience a 'lull'.

So... when one of my fellow nutritionists gave me a bounce bar to try – I was hooked! Wheat free, gluten free, GMO free and high in protein, these energy balls are the perfect option to keep hunger away.

My new favorite – the Almond Hit ball, which offers 12 grams of whey protein. 

Honibe Lemon Honey Drops – If you are like me and enjoy a cup of hot tea with natural honey, then you will love Honibe Lemon Honey drops.

Made with 100% natural honey and mixed with lemon, these "pop in your cup" drops are non sticky and are perfect for travelling. Honey has long been touted for its taste, nutritional benefits (loaded with anti-oxidants, enzymes and minerals) and health properties so... enjoy!


Dr. Joey's books and clips of the month

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Although I thoroughly enjoy public speaking and being in the media, I thrive on quiet moments and time alone at home and in my personal life. This is likely why the book Quiet- The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking was so appealing to me.

According to author Susan Cain, at least one-third of the people we know are introverts. Although they are often labeled as "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh's sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer. Passionately argued, impressively researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet shows how we can all benefit and from some calm and quiet in our world and how it can actually help us to achieve more of what our heart's desire.

I am a big believer in turning to an expert when you are trying to achieve a goal. Randy Taylor, president of Taylormadeleadership, can help you quickly reach your goal and find the success you deserve.

Whether your ambition is to increase your income potential or to finally land the job of your dreams – Randy's proven leadership techniques can help anybody rise to the top. For more information, visit or click here to view more.
