Sunday is one the most wonderful holidays of the year

Hey! Guess what! Sunday is one the most wonderful holidays of the year! No, not Rosh Hashanah, though that is a pretty sweet one, too.

 No, September 16 is National Guacamole Day (which is not to be confused with National Spicy Guacamole Day on November 14). 

And, as often happens when made up food holidays roll around, Guacamole Day got us thinking about where to get the best guac in town (which, let us be clear, does not necessarily mean the most "authentic" guacamole in town).

Now, the truth about guacamole is that every batch is different and the best way to get the greatest green stuffjust right is to simply make it yourself (it is so easy—hence all the table side preparation around town!)
Now here are 10 Health Benefits of Avocados benefits of avocados
Avocados have been shown to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer.

Oral Cancer Defense
Research has shown that certain compounds in avocados are able to seek out pre-cancerous and cancerous oral cancer cells and destroy them without harming healthy cells.
Breast Cancer Protection
Avocado, like olive oil, is high in oleic acid, which has been shown to prevent breast cancer in numerous studies.
Eye Health
Avocados have more of the carotenoid lutein than any other commonly consumed fruit. Lutein protects against macular degeneration and cataracts, two disabling age-related eye diseases.

Lower Cholesterol
Avocados are high in beta-sitosterol, a compound that has been shown to lower cholesterol levels. In one study, 45 volunteers experienced an average drop in cholesterol of 17% after eating avocados for only one week.
Heart Health
One cup of avocado has 23% of the recommended daily value of folate. Studies show that people who eat diets rich in folate have a much lower incidence of heart disease than those who don't. The vitamin E, monounsaturated fats, and glutathione in avocado are also great for your heart.
Stroke Prevention
The high levels of folate in avocado are also protective against strokes. People who eat diets rich in folate have a much lower risk of stroke than those who don't.
Better Nutrient Absorption Research has found that certain nutrients are absorbed better when eaten with avocado. In one study, when participants ate a salad containing avocados, they absorbed five times the amount of carotenoids (a group of nutrients that includes lycopene and beta carotene) than those who didn't include avocados.
Glutathione Source
Avocados are an excellent source of glutathione, an important antioxidant that researchers say is important in preventing aging, cancer, and heart disease.
Vitamin E Powerhouse
Avocados are the best fruit source of vitamin E, an essential vitamin that protects against many diseases and helps maintains overall health.

Now the Chips...that is another story so While those 10 reasons are GREAT..remember that healthy fat still has calories and the chips...well they are chips

Beat Workout Boredom (print this out)

Hey Everyone, Rafael here with a guest post for you guys from Mike Whitfield...enjoy  

  Beating Workout Boredom
Mike Whitfield, CTT
Author, Metabolic Bootcamp Finishers 

 At the TT Summit, Craig Ballantyne and I put over 50 Trainers and coaches through a tough metabolic resistance training workout. Just  when they thought the chaos was over, it was time to put them through a workout grand finale, aka "Metabolic Bootcamp Finisher". Sweat was pouring down like waterfalls and they loved every minute of it. As Craig brought me in for a special finisher, I could see the curiosity in their faces. It was time. The infamous "3's Company" finisher was going to be shared with the trainers, and you can use it with your bootcamp workouts too, for an epic grand finale that will have your campers raving about you.                   Print this out and use this after your own workout or with your bootcamps... The 3's Company Finisher Finisher # 8 in the Bootcamp Finishers Manual <= Do the following circuit as many times as possible in 3 minutes, resting ONLY when needed. When the 3 minutes is up, you're done. Burpee/Spiderman Pushup Combo (3) Lunge Jumps (3/side) X-Body Mountain Climber (3/side) Great times, no... great metabolic times. You see, the finishers are where the real magic happens. This is when your campers seriously get ADDICTED to working out and coming back for more. But more importantly, when you combine the power of YOUR workouts and these metabolic bootcamp finishers, your campers will get better and faster results, while having a lot of fun.

 That's a win/win. How powerful is it?

Finishers helped me lose 105 pounds. You can read more about my story here <=

That's what finishers can do for you and your bootcamp workouts. They are fun and addicting, bringing in dozens of referrals week after week. Not only that, but you'll also get the 14-day Bootcamp Fat Torch program as well as Metabolic Switch, the power of intervals and metabolic resistance training to get the best results in minimum time, all while your campers rave about you.
 You'll also discover:
 The Metabolic Partner 200
The Spider Gauntlet
The Metabolic Chaos Countdown ... and more Smack workout boredom in the face <=
