Course Description

It is time to learn how to choose a superfood blend in the overflowing market of protein powders, energy bars, and smoothie recipes. Why do I need a superfood drink, and which one should I choose?

Our focus in making a superfood blend isn't moderating disease symptoms. We focus on creating healthy functions. With abundant health, disease is simply crowded out and replaced with optimal performance.

You can gain good performance back. The momentum of the "normal" downward spiral of declining health and shorter lifespan can be slowed, and eventually reversed to add many precious moments and experiences in the coming years.

Delaying the onset of typical middle-age-related problems, especially the decline in sexual health, is hard to explain to people who did not experience it. 

Effects of feeding yourself right will include:

  • Reduced fat - increased muscle = solid body shape.
  • Enhanced immune function = resistance to infections.
  • Enhanced memory, ambition, attitude and brain power.
  • Reduction of joint and body muscle aches and pains.
  • Substantial increase in sexual health, interest, ability
  • Increased stamina for both women and for men
  • More youthful appearance and body functions
  • Extended life span quality and quantity.

You will learn about nutrients like Coenzyme Q10, Saffron, Ginkgo Biloba, Bilberry, Siberian Ginseng, Garlic, Vitamins A-&E, Niacin, Vitamin C, Pycnogenols and Bioflavonoids, plus key minerals like Chromium, as well as the Essential Fatty Acids GLA and Omega 3.

The result is understanding how nutrition affects your health, and how it affects your ability to function, which nutrients, and in which amounts are required for optimal performance.

Special Section: Vegetarian Bodybuilders

There is a belief that bodybuilders need meat in order to get the protein they require to build lean muscle mass. Nothing could be further from the truth. Many weight lifters thrive on meatless, even vegan diets. Plant protein can be superior to meat in many ways.

In this special section, we look at Superfoods for high end athletes.

What are the requirements?

  • Stop living on the typical North American fast food diet
  • Open Mind
  • Willingness to try new ideas and concepts

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand what nutrients need to be ingested every day
  • Understand difference between natural and industrial nutrients
  • Understand how to construct a healthy meal

Who is the target audience?

  • It is for people seeking better health, especially more muscle and less fat
  • It is for people seeking value in a confusing market
  • It is not for people struggling to buy food month to month

Instructor Biography

Martin Pytela, Life Enthusiast Life Coach

Martin Pytela, CMTA - that's Certified Metabolic Typing Advisor - offers his Health Coach services based on Metabolic Typing, a method that helps determine which foods and supplements will be most appropriate for you. You may already be aware that what heals one person may make another one worse ...

We make it our business to help people reverse chronic degenerative conditions, the source of aging and pain that plague so many of us. Especially of you have been frustrated by the medical system, and its symptom-oriented approach, you will find us to be refreshingly different. We believe that emergency room solutions so effective at saving a life are not appropriate for preventing conditions associated with aging or with system-wide break-downs.

Chances are that either you or someone very close to you is suffering from a chronic condition that conventional medical treatments are not able to resolve. You may have even been told to get used to it - it's part of aging or we can't do anything about it. Well, you can! And Martin will show you how.
