So a lot of times I get asked, “What if I don’t like coffee?” A big part of my lifestyle plan, Cruise Control, is the 16 hour fast and 8 hour eating window, aka intermittent fasting.
This has been scientifically proven to be one of the best ways to lose weight, fight disease and increase energy.
For my plan, if I get hungry in the morning, I’ll make myself a Cruise Control coffee. It’s simply black coffee with 1 tsp of MCT oil, grass-fed butter, or coconut oil, a natural sweetener like Swerve or monk fruit if I want it to be sweet, a pinch of pink himalayan sea salt, and then I put it in a blender, and mix it up like a cappuccino. I love it! But lots of my clients don’t like coffee and their bodies don’t do well with all the caffeine.
Last year I came across a product I had no idea was available and it changed my life and my clients lives. It’s called Crio Bru.
Crio Bru is 100% pure ground cacao and it brews just like coffee! Can you imagine that there is a product out there that literally tastes like chocolate, is healthy, and you can enjoy during your fasting window.. It almost seems too good to be true!
Crio Bru contains theobromine, a naturally occurring stimulant found in cacao that can be more pleasant than caffeine for all you people out there that are worried about that in coffee. It gives you a longer lasting, milder energy, without the jitters and the crash that come from caffeine. Crio Bru is 99.9% caffeine free and it’s boost of natural energy feels like you’ve had a good night’s sleep.. What more could you ask for?!
So, if you’re someone who doesn’t like coffee, or tea, or just LOVES chocolate, you need to get your hands on this! You can treat it like Cruise Control coffee and add in the 1 tsp of MCT oil, coconut oil, or grass-fed butter to satiate your hunger, and have up to three of these in the morning before your first meal!

Some days, in the life of a celebrity fitness trainer, I’m required to travel a lot to work with clients, meet with partners, appear on television shows, soon I’ll be going on a book tour for my new book, “The Cruise Control Diet”, coming out in April, and I’ll be on the go all day.
I tell all my celebrity clients when they have no time to eat always to carry some healthy fat. For some that’s easy, but for many it’s hard. Fat is the perfect snack because small amounts will satiate you so you’re not hungry and can wait until your next meal to eat.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen me most multiple times about my all-time favorite on the go snack. It’s called FBOMB. Don’t you love how provocative it is?! It’s a classic play on words, because to most people the word “fat” means something we should stay away from. I’m here to tell you, that you can eat FAT to get FIT. I swear!
FBOMB makes top notch oils and delicious nut butters so you can have options when you’re feeling something sweet or something salty.
My favorite when I’m on the go is to carry around the olive oil packets and sprinkle it on a salad when I’m running around. Often times the ones offered at restaurants or cafes are full of sugar and end up defeating the purpose of having a salad all together.
My kids, however, love the Macademia nut butter. You literally just massage the contents, rip off the top, move the butter to the top, and enjoy! It’s as easy as that. A delicious buttery snack that wards off hunger. Now you can see why I’m posting about it all the time, it’s like magic!

One of the things I am most looking forward to in 2019 is getting my Vasper system all set up so that I can get my body in top shape and help my clients as well. My good friend and colleague, Tony Robbins, raves about this product, so I just had to check in out.
The Vasper System combines compression, liquid cooling, and interval training to drive your body’s production of growth and recovery hormones, delivering the most significant benefits of high-intensity exercise in an efficient and low-impact 21-minute workout.
Can you believe in just 20 minutes you can get all of the following benefits:
Improved Sleep Quality
Increased Strength and Endurance
Accelerated Metabolism and Weight Loss
Bolstered Cardiovascular Health
Optimized Hormone Production
Augmented Glucose Metabolism
Improved Cognitive Function
This one system, in 21-minutes, really targets all the things I want to focus on in my body as I’m getting closer to 50.
Most of my clients, celebrity and as a part of my Facebook or membership ask me, “how can I sleep better?”, “how do I lose weight faster?”, “how do I decrease the intense stress levels in my body and mind?”, these can all be answered by one simple solution… Vasper.
I always say that exercise is the most underutilized form of antidepressant, and it’s true! When you workout, your body releases endorphins which in turn, make you happy!
So if you are reading this and wondering the same things my clients are, then check out the links below to find a Vasper near you.
So many of my celebrity clients are unaware that in trying to lose weight, higher levels of oxygen can support your weight loss goals. One of the things I love about the NanoVi is that it supports the oxygen and weight loss process by helping cell metabolism, mostly importantly oxygen metabolism.
When working with a lot of celebrity clients they are unaware of their cell metabolism and understand how it occurs is maximizing your oxygen levels. There are so many ways to do it but the easiest way to use the nano. In 15 minutes it can support oxygen metabolism.
I start off my day on the right food, to prepare my body for whatever the day has in store for me. So in the morning, as I review the galley for my new book, “The Cruise Control Diet”, I use the NanoVi for 15 minutes to stimulate my cell metabolism so when I work out later in the day, I am ready to go!
