A Thank You To Truck Drivers
It would be safe to say 2020 was the year of home delivery. Though it may seem like packages magically show up on our doorstep, we know there is a long line of hard workers that make the convenience possible. Truck drivers are behind-the-scenes heroes whose work helps so many. They haul everything from essential goods to Christmas presents, allowing us to end the year on a high note. They are a necessary part of our economy. This year they worked harder than ever to rise to the challenge, but did you know truck drivers have alarmingly high rates of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease? When you think about their daily lives, two factors stand out; not only are they extremely busy, but they are also on the road for much of their time. Many of us can relate to taking a road trip and making poor dietary choices due to convenience. These essential workers deal with this choice almost daily. We are pleased to have Kevin Rutherford as our January Featured Chef. Kevin works to help truck drivers put health first with tips and tricks to have a whole diet, even on the road. He has assisted many drivers in losing weight and reversing metabolic diseases. We all can make the conscious decision this year to make the best choices for our health even when life seems too busy. Our body and mind will thank us.
We want to take a moment to thank our FedEx truck drivers for working hard and continuing to deliver delicious packages to our patrons. Their help made this unprecedented year possible.
Total Transformation | USWM Staff Joins Kat James For A Total Transformation
Here at USWM, we’ve been ahead of the curve on keto and paleo lifestyles, but Kat James’ personal health journey and observational research on leptin over 30 years, pre-dates most high-fat experts by decades and digs as deep as we’ve seen from a practical perspective. You may have read, here, about some of our customers’ truly inspiring cancer, dementia, Parkinson’s, Cushings, eating disorder, and other turnarounds after following James’ doctor-supervised, highly-individualized protocol (she makes no claims of course). We’ve been honored to be featured in her online and on-site Total Transformation® Programs for nearly two decades.
I have dabbled in her teachings with amazing results, but never dove deep into mastering them, without compromise, until September of this year. The result was another level of unprecedented physical changes. My already good sleep, stamina, and sharpness have reached a whole new level. Business colleagues I’ve known for years were struck by my changed appearance in a Zoom meeting a few weeks ago. My December 5th biofeedback test results showed my first perfect score in 10 years (biological age is 44!). My skin doc even commented on my weight and said my skin was the best he’s ever seen it. But the story doesn’t end there…
After noticing my metamorphosis, two of my staff jumped into James’ course in late October. In spite of their initial skepticisms due to past failures, their results surpassed all expectations. Between them, about fifty pounds melted off almost effortlessly, by their accounts, after years of struggle… in record time. More important were the digestive, hormonal, and mental changes. They look like different people. Their stories will be featured in a magazine article in the New Year and we’ll share more (including photos) in this newsletter next month. In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about this incredible “biohack” that has transformed our lives check out James’ January course offerings, or hear Abby’s, Lisa’s, and my detailed live accounts on The Kat James Show on SiriusXM 131.
