I was reading about the ‘Body For Life’ and I was wondering what would be good examples of the carbs, fats and proteins your were mentioing that should be in the diet?


Janetha November 14, 2013 at 12:57 pm

carbs include fruits, whole grains, sweet potatoes, brown rice, oatmeal, etc.. protein is lean beef/chicken/turkey/fish, eggs, protein powder, greek yogurt.. fats include nuts, avocado, coconut oil, peanut butter, etc… this is a limited list, obviously!

Could you do a simple post on how your mom makes her salad you always talk about? Does she make it ahead of time or right before eating time? Looks like there are chunks of avocado, some radishes, romaine……I don’t know what else. thanks.


Janetha November 24, 2013 at 7:14 pm

You mean the salads I sometimes post from Sunday dinner at her place? It typically has romaine, radishes, avocado, red onion, red bell pepper, cucumbers, and sometimes cherry tomatoes. We make it right before dinner and serve it with an array of dressings!

Hi Janeetha,

I have been frequenting your blog lately and like reading your posts because they are super fun to read. Your BFL transformation is amazing ! Love it.

I want to start a new fitness regimen starting from Jan 1st. I was thinking of either Body for Life or Cross-fit. I know a little bit of both of them and will continue to read and research about them but would like to hear it from someone who has done both. Which one do you recommend ?
My background- I am 5.2 and 109 pounds..with a petite frame..I don’t need to lose weight but would like to tone overall body. I have done a lot of fitness DVD’s and am a runner too..


Janetha December 3, 2013 at 11:49 am

Hey! BFL is more for weight loss.. if you are looking for muscle gain, I would say give CrossFit a shot! xoxo


Ramya December 5, 2013 at 9:28 am

Janetha, Thanks for the suggestion and for the quick response :) I am planning on trying your go-to-lower body workout this evening..with some 10’s and 15’s though..
You look super strong in those videos.

Hi Janetha!

Thank you for sharing your recipe with us for our healthy game-day snacks article! You can view the article here:

We also have a content sharing partnership with CNN and they have posted the article on their website, and wanted to see if you would grant us permission to send them the photo of your Garlic Crab Stuffed Mushrooms.

Appreciate the fast response!

Hi janetha!

Great blog! wish I would have found it long time ago!

I read your blog from 2011 about “gut update” , the pictures you posted are exactly how I have been looking for 14 years! I do work out, and eat balanced and healthy but, unless I dont eat absolutely anything for 2 days, my belly is always bloated. I was wondering if you can tell me what the doctors finally found, just to get some clues because nobody seems to find what is wrong with me.




Janetha February 20, 2014 at 10:43 am

I ended up finding a solution on my own.. I take MNS Max3 every day and am totally regular!


Joolz May 12, 2014 at 9:03 am

Thanks so much for posting your BFL recipes! I love BFL, too and it got me into great shape! Post pregnancy I really wanted to dive back into it full force, but found that the website didn’t have the community recipes as it once did. I am so glad you have some and I look forward to adding them to my collection!


Janetha May 16, 2014 at 7:08 pm

thanks for commenting!

For you latest post you closed comments so I didn’t know where to post this. What worked very well for my son who just turned 9 months old and is now on all formula is to start with say 1/5 formula and 4/5 breast milk in one bottle. Then try 1/4 formula, then 1/3, 1/2, etc. Your son will get used to it.


Janetha March 23, 2015 at 3:18 pm

Unfortunately we have tried mixing and he still refuses! Wasted quite a bit of breast milk that way. :(
