He Doesn’t REALLY Want the Perfect Woman

He Wants These 3 Things from You Instead…

How much time do you spend trying to be the kind of woman you think men want?
If you’re like most women, it’s a LOT. You spend all this time making yourself look sexy and attractive.
All this time presenting yourself as fun, interesting, worldly, and not needy in the slightest. You spend all this time showing him just how good you’d be for him… How amazing his future would be if he chose you as the woman by his side…
And it doesn’t work. It never works. WHY? Why do you work so hard… And the guy in your life just takes you for granted, if he even notices you at all? It’s probably because he’s immature, right? He can’t recognize a good thing until it’s gone. Or maybe… It’s because you’ve been doing all the work for him.

If He Doesn’t Work for Your Relationship, He Won’t Value It


What men value most are those things they have to work hard to get.
Hand a man a college diploma, and he won’t value it as much as if he’d had to put in years of study and effort to earn it.
Hand a man the perfect girlfriend, and he won’t value her as much as if he’d had to woo her for weeks just to get her to go out with him. This is why playing hard to get works.
But, as you’ve probably already noticed…
There’s a BIG problem with playing hard to get. That strategy stops working once he’s actually got you.
Something happens when guys decide they’ve won you. It’s almost like they think, “Game over.” Their minds are already on their next challenge. What is going on?!
And how can you stop it from wrecking your relationship?

It’s Not Just You—ALL Women Experience This(That’s Why They Ask for Help)

Many women give up on love. They never let themselves get too close to a man, for fear of scaring him off. But other women try a different approach. They get help. Relationship coach James Bauer is one of the people they turn to.
He noticed that many clients were coming to him, complaining about guys who were blowing hot and cold. Everything would be going great, and then it was like…
Something would change overnight.
A guy who’d been warm, affectionate and interested would suddenly become distant. He’d no longer have any time for her. He wouldn’t smile in greeting. He’d stop making eye contact. His kisses were brusque. Wanting to help his clients, James investigated.
And what he discovered made sense of everything. He knew why these men were backing away. He knew what they needed … and what they weren’t getting.
It didn’t come down to anything wrong with these women.
Rather, it all came down to something he called “The Hero Instinct.”

Most Women Do Something that Drives Men Away…Without Ever Realizing It

One of the most wonderful things about women is how naturally caring they are.
Look at you. You’re always there for your guy. You look after him. You always make time for him. You’d do anything for him.
You never realize that, in the process…
You’re actually taking something away from him. You’re taking away his purpose.
You see, he wants to be your hero. He doesn’t want you to be his hero.
Men love heroes. Look at how many grown men are still fascinated by Marvel comics and superhero movies.
Every man on Earth, from the time he was a boy, dreamed of growing up to be the kind of hero who would save the world—and get the girl at the same time.
Most men don’t get to indulge their world-saving side in their 9-5 jobs.
Circumstances don’t call for them to rip off their corporate ties and spring into action, revealing their superman side. Maybe they can’t save the world. But they can still get the girl.
Getting the girl is a worthy challenge for an ordinary guy with the heart of a superhero. It takes superhuman confidence. Superhuman charm. Superhuman immunity to pain. Now, all he needs to find is…
A girl who needs a hero. Do You Need a Hero? Let me guess… That’s not you.
You’re strong. You’re independent. You can fix a leaky faucet. You can drive a stick shift. You can take care of yourself. You’re never going to make that Jerry Maguire mistake of looking for a man to complete you.
Instead, you have a lot to offer a man. You’re generous. Kind. Loving. Giving to a fault. All you want is to find a man who’s willing to receive all you have to give.
And that’s why heroes aren’t showing up in your life. That’s why you’ve ended up with so many takers instead. Guys who take everything you have and leave you high and dry. If you want a hero, then you need to advertise for one. Here’s how.

3 Ways You Can Invite a Hero into Your Life, Starting Today

1. Ask a guy for help.
Ask him for advice on buying a new computer. Ask him to listen to that weird rattling sound that’s started up in your car. Ask him to reach something on the top shelf. Then thank him warmly, with a great big smile of appreciation. No, that doesn’t make you needy. It makes you a woman with space for a man in her life.
2. Take pleasure in male company.
Guys love women who appreciate men for just being men. So what if his apartment is a shrine to sports? So what if he spends hours on his fantasy football team? So what if his idea of a clean shirt is the one with the fewest wrinkles? He’s a guy. It’s okay. You don’t need him to be more like you, because you’ve got the feminine side of the gender equation covered.
3. Let him earn your respect.
Superheroes love challenges. They don’t want to be given a gold medal just for showing up. They don’t want your love handed to them on a plate. They want to earn it. There’s one thing they crave even more than a woman’s eternal enduring love: A challenge. So give him opportunities to prove himself. You don’t have to do the work of winning him over. Sit back, relax, and allow him the pleasure of winning your admiration.

The Organic 7-Day Total Body Guide Review 2017

The Organic 7-Day Total Body Reset Guide Review

For those who find the original book, The Primal Blueprint daunting, author Mark Sisson has provided this guidebook for a 21-Day Total Body Transformation. Like many books on this topic the Christian must glean the useful and ignore the evolutionary rationale. Key concepts of the plan include: the ability to reprogram genes, finding clues in the habits of the original "hunter-gathers," our bodies prefer to burn fat over carbohydrates, 80% of body composition is determined by what one eats, grains are not necessary, saturated fat and cholesterol are not unhealthy, exercise is ineffective for weight management and maximum fitness requires high intensity workouts, but minimal time.

While understanding the key concepts is helpful, Action Items are more practical.

1. Eliminate SAD (Standard American Diet) foods.

2. Shop, cook and dine "primally"

3. Make the healthiest choices for all types of food.

4. Exercise "primally - move, lift and sprint.

5. Slow your life down.

There are many similarities between this book and the one I previously reviewed on "Naked Foods". However, this book covers a broader spectrum - not just food and drink - but exercise and lifestyle changes. I have read from different sources that new research indicates that shorter, more intense exercise is more effective than longer, less intensive times. Therefore, the message from this book is to avoid the extremes of chronic exercise (too long, too hard, too frequent) and the sedentary lifestyle. Sisson also addresses poor sleeping habits affecting health.

Purging SAD (Standard American Diet) Foods from your house makes it easier to eat "primally", but that only works if everyone in the family eats "primally" as well. Eating "primally" means eliminating processed, sweetened beverages, grains, prepared condiments, processed dairy products, fast foods, farmed fish, legumes, prepackaged meats, processed foods, and sweets. Sisson has prepared his own food spectrum pyramid - on the base you will find Meat, Fish, Fowl, Eggs, next level up is vegetables, then the next level is healthy fats, then moderation foods (fruits, high fat dairy, starchy tubers, wild rice, nuts, seeds, nut butters) and finally herbs, extracts, spices, dark chocolate and supplements.

Important parts of the books include: descriptions and photos of exercises as well as recipes. However, for someone who is transforming her whole family to live in this way, the day-by day 21-day guide, telling you when to buy these things, and when to purge your kitchen and when to begin these exercises, this book is invaluable.

Now for some ideas that I thought interesting: Regarding achieving better sleep, one should establish an evening routine to wind down - using yellow lights or glasses with yellow lenses, eliminate digital stimulation during this time and taking a leisurely stroll. Sisson makes the case that by purchasing more expensive organic foods, you can save much more in health care costs. He recommends that you strive for 100%, but given the stresses and distractions of life you should accept 80% compliance. For those of us who lead sedentary lifestyles, Sisson also encourages us to take breaks to walk around between sessions of work that requires us to sit down for long periods. He even recommends setting up a workstation that allows for times of standing up.

One thing I found odd or out-of-place was Sisson's recommendation to purchase pre-cooked bacon from Costco and microwave it before adding to a breakfast omelet. That provides yet another topic of importance to health. All in all, I found this a good read and helpful for anyone wanting to improve their diet and lifestyle. For most of us who still have more to do, we need to start where we are and move toward a healthier lifestyle.

What to Look for in a Pre-Workout Supplement

"I just can't train without taking... " - famous preceding words from athletes scattered throughout all sports and specialties who see and feel the benefits of taking pre-workout supplements before training and competing.

Some pre-workout supplements are the most novel and innovative products you'll find in the performance-enhancing landscape. Conversely, some aren't so novel. From simple caffeine-dense stimulants and amphetamine-like highs to the parasthesia or "tingles" felt when your supplement contains beta-alanine, one thing pre-workout supplements do have in common, is that they are all designed to ensure that you feel them "working".

But what exactly is working inside that mysterious powder? More importantly, what is it that you want from your pre-workout supplement?

If you're a strength athlete and tonight's training is focused on moving the heaviest weights in the gym, then you're probably on the search for a stimulant-based pre-workout. Products like Jack3d and Mesomorph have been popular choices of late, but consumers must be cautious when purchasing products containing 1-3 DMAA due to its nationwide ban from shelves (the details of this ban have been blurred by retailers but ultimately the benefits of this product were strongly outweighed by its associated risks).

If you're looking for size, be it temporary or long-lasting, you will want to invest in testing your response to a high-quality vasodilatory supplement. The jury is still (very) out on many of the new 'forms' of arginine and citrulline (the amino acid substrates which feed the nitric-oxide synthase-induced vasodilation in these products), and there is no legitimate reason to look for something 'bigger' than arginine-alpha ketoglutarate (AAKG). There likely isn't a better product currently in existence using the arginine compound as its backbone and you can trust that if you respond to AAKG, you'll want to stick with it. There is the unfortunate reality of the fact that not all athletes respond to arginine in the same fashion. This is an issue that has clouded many facets of research into the amino acid's use as an ergogenic aid and even as a cardiotherapeutic. Nonetheless, if you are a responder you will know once you've tried it and a more pronounced peripheral vascularity and a deeper 'flushed' feeling indicates its effective widening of blood vessels and (theoretically) an increased supply of the nutrients your muscles need during exercise.

If you're a fighter, crossfitter or training for mixed endurance then you'll likely be looking at solutions to enhance your work volume. This is more complicated than just aggressively generating a force once. Metabolic substrates that are used by your cells during anaerobic exercise can be supplemented and stored in greater amounts before you train. Look for ingredients like creatine esters, amino acids, simple sugars and beta-alanine. Beta-alanine is a relatively new compound used in pre-workouts for its ability to buffer (improve your acute tolerance to) acidic bi-products of anaerobic respiration ie. lactic acid. Some of the best supplements on the market combine creatine and whey protein supplements quite to effectively shorten the recovery time needed between training sessions.

Now, if you really have to concentrate during training... if you fight in a cage or ring or you have complicated movements to co-ordinate in crossfit , gymnastics, BMX, ball-sports, rowing, tennis etc. then the compound you've been looking for has only just recently hit the market. In Australia, this compound is marketed under the name Theaffeine and is available only in select ranges of products. This glutamate is essentially a synergist of caffeine (mimics caffeine's effects) with reduced side effects and added benefits. Theaffeine has been shown to improve focus, concentration and rapid problem-solving whilst reducing the tremor, nervousness and anxiety that accompanies all the harsh and potent caffeine-based stimulant pre-workouts we've known and tolerated for years. Some studies have even shown it's active ingredient to prevent neurocognitive damage during prolonged physical and mental stress (an extremely important benefit when you train at the professional level). Theaffeine's active ingredients have been used most notably in the USA as potent study-aids for students, musicians and high-stress executives.
Whatever choice you make, close your eyes and forget what Bobby Wants-to-be-a-bodybuilder told you last time you were in the gym together. You have the power to make an educated decision and understand the purpose of pre-workout ingredients (without pandering to the marketing hype amateurs and weekend-warriors fall for all day).
