A New You in 52! Christine's tips for week #2

Every week, Celebrity Nutritionist Christine Avanti has tips to help us get healthy and become a "New You in 52!"

Here are Christine's tips for this week:

 1) How to boost metabolism and burn fat with food.  Simply put-you must eat a “PC combo” (a lean protein with a healthful carb) for every meal.  This is how Christine personally lost 30 pounds of fat—and if she can do it you can do it!!

 

2) Why eat a PC combo?  What does this do? 

Answer: It stabilizes blood sugar and hormone levels so your body can start burning fat naturally. 

Says who?  Harvard Medical School researchers proved this in 1999!!  So start eating and stop starving!!

 

3) What is an example of a “PC Combo” meal?  Go to www.christineavanti.com for Christine’s infamous steak with and herb mashed potato recipe.  

 

Tune in next week, when Christine food swaps your favorite breakfast recipes.

I just heard on the radio that you are giving away p90x videos...  I have seen the infomercial this week twice on tv and thought "I could surely use that now!!!   There is just no way financially I can buy it..."   Maybe this is an answer to prayer!  Pick me!  Pick me!  God bless.  I love klove you ROCK!

I would love the P90X.  I saw the informercial one day and told my husband about it.  He also saw the informercial at a earlier time and said that it looks good but hard.  Of course, we are not able to purchase it at this time. We have buying whole wheat noodles for a couple of years now but it is time to get fit and be serious.  I was actually coming to my church tonight to work when I heard about giving the P90X away.  I tried to call but the phone line was busy.  I listen to KLOVE driving to and from work.  Thank you for providing Christian music.  My son was singing along the other day when I picked him up from daycare to our house which is less than a mile away.  He is 7.

I just wrote a blog today about the changes I need to make in my lifestyle to become a "NEW ME"! I was so excited when the Lord lead me to turn on the radio while I was making dinner to hear about this great P90X giveaway!  Is this where we sign-up for that giveaway?  I have gained over 100 lbs in the past 3 years due to a lot of changes in my life and lack of self-control - but the Lord has prompted me with the help and counseling of many family & friends to MAKE A CHANGE a LIFESTYLE change, once and for all!  I need to do this if I want to add to our family - we have one 2 year old daughter who is my joy, but we'd love to add more.  Please choose me as I am in desperate need of a great DVD to jumpstart my lifestyle change. Thanks for this great new series! Smile

I THINK I HEARD RIGHT THAT YOU GUYS AND TONY HORTON WAS GIVING AWAY P90X VIDIOS.  IF THAT IS CORRECT I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A SET.  I JUST RECENTLY GOT DIVORCED AND HAVE WANTED TO DO THIS FOR MYSELF AND MY WIFE BUT SHE WANTED SOMETHING OR SOMEONE DIFFERENT...I ASKED GOD FOR HELP TO SAVE MY MARRIAGE BUT IT HAS NOT HAPPENED. HE KNOWS BEST AND I TRUST IN HIM BUT I WANT A NEW ME WITH GOD INSIDE ME AND OUT. THE TRUTH IS I CANNOT AFFORD IT BUT WILL BE ABLE TO SOON...TOO MANY DEBTS FROM MY PAST THAT I HAVE TO TAKE OF FIRST.  SINCE THE SEPERATION IN JULY I HAVE LOST 72 POUNDS AND 9 INCHES IN MY WAIST AND I AM PROUD OF THAT.  I HAVE ALSO GAVE MY MIND AND HEART BACK TO GOD FIRST AND MY KIDS AND FAMILY SECOND.  THAT IS SPECIAL TO ME TO TRUST AND SEEK HIM FIRST BUT MY SELF ESTEEM IS STILL CRUSHED NOT TO MENTION MY HEART.  I WANT A NEW KIRK INSIDE AND OUT SO IF YOU CAN BE SO KIND TO PRAY FOR ME AND MAYBE SLIDE A SET OF VIDEOS MY WAY I WON'T LET GOD OR MYSELF OR YOU FOLKS DOWN!  I AM 6'2"  AND NOW 225.  I WILL ALWAYS BE GRATFUL FOR JUST THE PRAYERS!

Are you still giving away the P90X?  I would love to have one.  My husband and I have a 4 and 1 year old, plus he travels a lot so it is just too hard to get to the gym, plus expensive.  I thought this program would be a great thing for us to do together after the kids go to bed we are both wanting to get back in shape.  I think your "New You in 52" is a great idea and I was excited to hear about it on Klove!  It is awesome to be encouraged spiritually and physically.  Thanks!

Giving away the p90x DVDs?  Are you kidding me?  I have been on a real "health" kick since my mother-in-law, my best friend's mother and countless others in my circle of friends and family have been diagnosed with and/or lost their battle with cancer!  I know that there are many factors that contribute to this horrible disease, but I made a commitment to try to eliminate as many as I can for me and my family.  Getting my husband on the bandwagon is a little challenging right now, but I think if he had a program like this that we could do at home and maybe even together, he would do it.  I don't blame him for not wanting to do pilatesSmile!  It's not about being cut or looking like a supermodel...it's about being a good steward of the bodies God has given us.  Certainly health struggles may still be in our future, but having such a proven method of exercise and overall wellness would be such a beginning toward an intentional lifestyle of fitness!! Thank you for highlighting wellness in a Christian perspective...it's not always about looking hot in a bikini!!!

P90X would be such a blessing to my husband and myself.  My husband recently returned from a 13 month long deployment, and I was at home taking care of our newborn baby boy.  Due to the downward trend in the economy, both of us are having a hard time making ends meet, and it would be great to have P90X to give us someting to do togehter to work-out and get healthy and relieve stress!  I have seen the results of this program from several family members and freinds...it is amazing!!  We would love the chance to use this program together and get stronger in 2010!

I would love nothing else but to lead a healthy lifestyle, but my excuses always come in abundant amounts.
Having been raised in a family whose main focus was not on health I have never been able to maintain a healthy weight. What is worse is that this problem does not only affect me but is a family issue affecting my sisters, parents and I am afraid that it will someday affect my 16 month nephew. My grandmother passes away several years ago from diabetes, my dad has recently been diagnosed with end stage renal failure due to poor health habits and ever since then our focus has been to end this generational curse and live a healthy lifestyle.  
Being chosen to receive the p-90X videos would mean a great deal not only to me but my entire family. This program would help motivate us toward making better choices and focus on maintain the bodies that God has given us healthy.

God Bless,

Lydia

I am 46 and 13 years ago my doctor gave me 6 months to live he thought I had full blown AIDS but I didn't have it or the virus.  For some reason my immune system shut down.  Then God helped me figure out what the problem was.  with all the antibiotics they had me taking I had eliminated the beneficial bacteria.  The beneficial bacteria's job is to keep our funguses in check so without them our bodies get way out of balance.  I took beneficial bacteria and powder nyastatin and got my immune system working then it helped my autistic son to talk.  anyways my son and his best friend are 19 his friend has a muscular problem anyways he has been wanting p90x to help strenghthen his body but it is really expensive so I told him to just hold on and God will figure a way for us to get one I know me and my kids to get in really good shape but working this system and the kids would see first hand how great God is and how he really moves in peoples lives thank you k-love

My reasons for wanting the P90X are slightly different from the normal reason for wanting to exercise.  Both my husband and I would need to lose about 15 pounds each.  Although that number isn't very large, our reason for needing to get an exercise routine which can be done at home is for health reasons.  I have lots of back problems.  All of which are relieved when I can regularly exercise and remain strong.  Before having kids, I would go to the gym and my back would be just fine.  But now with two kids, homeschooling, and both having disabilities, Down Syndrome and Autism, its harder to leave the house and go to the gym.  With the P90X I could do it before they even wake up in the morning.  My husband has extrememly high blood pressure and recently diagnosed with diabetes.  Exercise is very important with lowering both his blood pressure and blood sugar.  We are very committed and it wouldn't just collect dust on the shelves. We would purchase it but as so many people, finances have been very tight.  We would feel very blessed if you pick us.  Thanks!!!

I would love to win the P90X for my husband.  He needs to lose about 75 pounds.  He is 45 years old and overweight.  His father died at 52 from a masssive heart attack without any warnings.  The closer my husband gets to 50 years old, the more I worry about him having a heart attack.I want him to be around to continue to help raise our boys.  They are 7 and 17.  I want him to be there for their games, graduation, college,wedding etc.  They would be devastated if something happened to him. They love him dearly.  He needs to take better care of himself.  He tells me he needs to do something, but the P90X is too expensive for us.  He would love the feel better.  He works hard outside in the heat and cold, and the extra weight makes him feel really bad.  I need to lose weight too.  We could definitely benefit from the program.
Thank You!!!

I heard Tony Horton speak on K love about how to keep the kids busy in the summer.  I have 5 kids (young adults now 15-21), all still around home. I am always trying to keep them busy with wholesome and constructive activities. I strive to maintain a balance for all of us spiritually, mentally, physically... with faith, family and fun. I have looked into P90X several times, just have not bit the bullet. All seven of us could truly benefit from this program as we do from K love.  Thanks for your consideration!!!  Keep up the good work of positive encouraging K love.  Blessing to you all    .....Pam

Hi,
I am 14 years old and I have been told that my BMI is with-in the average percentage for my heith. I have some extra fat though that I have been made fun of for throughout my childhood and I am still made fun of for it. I have beome very self conscious over this. I have seen the P90X commercials so many times, but everytime I see them I wonder if a male at my age could do P90X and still get great results. I am not sure if this is the right place to place this question, but, I would greatly appreciate it if it was answered.
Thanks and God bless!

I listen to KLOVE all the time so I can't believe I didn't hear about your P90X giveaway sooner! I would love to be considered for a chance to win. I have heard so many rave reviews about the success of this program from friends and now my sister. But as a SAHM with 4 kids, we just can't seem to find the room in our budget for the program. My goal is to be stronger and healthier, not just skinnier, and from what I have heard, P90X is the best there is. My husband is currently deployed and I would love to show him a whole new "me" when he returns!

i would love to have the p90x. my husband and i are both over weight and have talked about the fact that we are just seting ourselves up to die early. we try to eat right and work out but nothing has helped. we would never be able to afford the p90x. we have a one year old and want to be here for her for a LONG time. both of our families have so many health problems and we dont want to follow them. we have lost 3 grandparents in the past year and have one sick now. i am a sunday school teacher and tell the children all the time to take care of their bodies but how can i say that when i dont take care of mine?? i pray every night to live to see my little girl grow up but i know i have to work at it also.

Hello. My name is Jodi and I am 31 years old. I have a wonderful husband and two amazing boys. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. I was also the big girl, the chubby girl. I have also tried to exercise but it seemed I maintained my weight or lose 5 pounds here or there. Right before I found out I was pregnant with my 5 year old, I had lost 15 pounds. I had been working a job where I would walk miles a day. I was so excited. Then next thing I know I am pregnant. I was already technically obese so I worked hard on not gaining more weight than needed. I gain 20 pounds. Right after I had him I lost it all and then some more. I gradually put all that weight back on ad then some. My husband and I decided to try to have another baby. I was watching what I was eating, trying to get some exercise in throughout the day but was not losing weight. We continued to try on our own for a year with no success having a baby. I went to my midwife to see what can be done. After about 6 months still nothing so she referred me to a fertility specialist. After the first visit and blood work he diagnosis me with Polycystic Ovarian syndrome, or PCOS. Now after doing research about PCOS everything started making more sense. With PCOS you can have difficult losing weight due to being insulin resistance IR. My body does not use the insulin correctly. After 8 or 9 months with that doctor we did finally get pregnant again and had another boy. He just turned one. Now here I am bigger then I have ever been. With this pregnancy I only gained 10 pounds. But shortly after having him I gained even more weight. I am only 5 feet and a half inch tall and over 200 pounds. I am borderline diabetic now, due to the IR and PCOS and I know if I could lose the weight I would feel better. I pray every day and ask God please help me get healthy so that I can be here for my family. I want to be able to go out and run and play with them and not have to stop so often. Our oldest son is also over weight, as well as my husband. I want to show our son and teach him how to eat and live healthy. I don't want him to be picked on like I was in school. In order to do that I have to be living that way, be an example. I have seen the p90x and thought wow wish I could afford that, that might just be the push that can help me lose the weight and get healthy and be the example for my sons and just be able to be here for my family. Thank you K-Love for the inspiration you give and great thanks to God for having you be that inspiration needed.

My husband was laid off last January (going on 1 1/2 yrs!). In his many attempts to find work he has been unsuccessful. Times have been hard and I know circumstances are weighing heavy on my hubby. Over the past months I have seen him fall into a heavy depression and he has become very lazy and unmotivated. I have heard that exercise releasing endorphins and gives you energy. But with limited funds it is impossible for him to have a gym membership or even purchase workout dvds. I know if my husband was given p90x it would be the best thing for him and our family. I would love for him to get back into shape, release some endorphins, and feel better about himself. I just love my husband so much. He works and tries so hard and it would be a true blessing if he was able to do p90x or something of the sort from home. Thank you so much for your consideration. K Love has been a true inspiration for our family is this very difficult time in our lives.

I've struggled with weight all of my life. Whether it be battling bulemia in my youth, or trying to lose excess weight a healthy way in my adult years. I pray all of the time for God to help me with this issue. God is always faithful and I know this. It is hard for me to understand why I can't find a way to take this weight off for good and not have it be an issue. I feel I have so much to offer and can do so much more for His kingdom without this health issue nipping at my heals. My husband has lost 2 jobs in the past 18 months and I'm a stay-at-home mom of 2 young children. He just got a job, praise God, but we are very far behind. We've had to cancel our gym membership and have not been able to spend money on books or programs to help with losing weight. I don't know that I can do this all on my own. I don't feel I know how to lose weight in a healthy way. Perhaps God had me hear about this offer on K-Love to help? I've seen the P90X advertised and heard about the "Skinny Girls Don't Eat Salad" book. I would love to try both. I would love to be considered for this prize. Thank you!

My family has struggled for the past few years with moving to a new location to find a job and struggling to make ends meet. In that time we can afford whatever is on sale at the store, so a lot of times its stuff that's not as health. We try to stay fit and exercise but just walking and running does not seem to do the trick. Gym memberships are out of the question.Diabetes also runs rabid in the family and I am looking for a health way to change my future. I have heard from many people that have tried P90x and they all guarantee that it will get our family back into the healthy life style. I am willing to try anything to get us back in shape. Please consider us. Thank you for taking the time.

My name is Randi and I am a sophomore in college. All throughout high school I battled an eating disorder and my family watched my weight and my health bounce up and down. All thanks to God I was able to get help and overcome this eating disorder. However now, after my freshman year of college, I have gained a considerable amount of weight. I have been struggling to find healthy ways to diet and exercise. I have been trying everything however I don't have the money for a gym membership, or to buy some of the pricy diet foods. When I turned on my radio the other day and heard you were giving away p90x it was like a God send. I have been looking at this but I just can't afford it. This would be something that I could do in my dorm room with my friends and I wouldn't have to be alone in this battle anymore. Thank you for your consideration and for the great messages K Love sends! They have helped me through this transitional time in my life.

I'm a 35 year old firefighter/paramedic.  I also do Search and Rescue for FEMA.  I've responded to national disasters like the WTC collapse, Hurricane Katrina, and many other hurricanes and other disasters.  I'm not in bad shape, but I am going to basic training for the Army in a couple months.  I plan to be an Infantry Officer and attend Airborne and Ranger schools.  I also plan to attempt entry into the Special Forces.  These schools include some of the most rigorous physical and mental exertion one can undergo.  I am starting to get back into shape now, but have a long way to go to out-run and out-fight the young guys.  I plan to fight for my country in combat and would like to utilize P90X to help me with a total body workout that will assist me.  Thanks for your work to bring inspiration and encouragement to all of us that listen.  God Bless

I am 35 years old.  My mom, my four sisters, and I have always struggled with our weight. I have also struggled with my faith.  A few years ago I turned back to God.  And part of my changing life involved getting healthier.  Within the past few years my mom and two of my sisters have had the lap band surgery for weight loss.  I wanted to show them that weight loss can be achieved with diet and exercise.  I have a treadmill and have been doing yoga and pilates.  But I don't have anything for strength training.  I have a friend that bought the P90X but she won't share!  I have heard a lot of great things about this program and my wife has been telling me about it.  I even watched the infomercial about it. I think this would be a great program to do.  When my familiy sees how great the results are with this maybe they will be motivated to add exercise into their lives also.  Thank you K-Love for doing a great service for God! p.s. Tell Lisa I don't mind her singing along with the songs!

After struggling with my walk with the Lord and an eating disorder that almost took my life, I have regained control of my life, only by the grace of God. The last 20 years I have gained 200 lbs. and I have finally had enough! My real wake up call was this last year when I had broken my ankle and did not have enough strength to be able to use crutches.
All I could do was think about when I would be able function on two feet again. Now almost 9 months later I am getting around much better and have a desire to loose the weight that is holding me back. My husband is disabled and I work but a gym membership is still out of reach for me. It seems like another roadblock in my way. I know that if I was able to use P90X in my home, I would be able to become a more healthy, able-bodied vessel for the Lord.

I listen to KLOVE daily and have been debating about telling you my story. I am a 36 year old single mother who has struggled with her weight most of her adult life. My mother was diagnosed with diabetes a year ago, and I was diagnosed as insulin resistant in January.  I have since lost an additional thirty pounds totalling 60 lbs over the year.  I still need to lose at least another seventy, and could really use the P90X to get to my goal.  I refuse to become a diabetic, and especially refuse to allow my daughter to learn the unhealthy habits I had created over the years.  I want her to know a happy healthy mom, so that she wont have to worry about me, and live a happy healthy life as well. Please consider me for the precious gift of health with the P90X.

Weight loss for me as become impossible!  No matter what I try, my body loves the weight it has on it. I don't know what to eat, I don't know what excerices to do.  I am at a COMPLETE LOSS!  I'm not a good mother, or a wife because I'm not happy with ME.  The other day I was doing a breath prayer where you breathe in the name of Jesus and then you breathe out a request.  My request was for help... HELP with becoming happy with me - loosing a few pounds, becoming healthy and fit - I'd love a good work out that kicks my, you know.  Well anyway... I prayed that prayer.  Got in the car to go home and turned on Klove (as always)  And then I heard about you guys talking about a new you in 52...
Then, I breathed in Jesus, and then breathed out... Thank you.

I am hoping that you guys might have a few P90x programs left. I am really hoping to suprise my husband by winning one. You see, my husband and I both work full time and are going to school full time as well. We are very busy and have a very active 3 year old as well. We are blessed to have our little boy in our life as he is a medical miracle. The doctors said he would be lucky to make it to 1 year old without a transplant or dialysis and he is 3 now with neither having to be done. We are blessed by this! The doctors say there is no medical reason he should be living. I tell them everytime it is because of God.  At first the doctors shrugged this off but now they are believing this! We still have a lot of stress from the medical possibilities for our son, from work, and from our schooling. I teach in the inner city and would not change this for the world! We only have time to excersise in the very early morning or very late at night so we could really use the P90X. We would really like to get back in shape and I know this would be a big help. Thanks for listening to our story! If there aren't any P90X programs left that is fine. I thought I would try. If you wouldn't mind shouting up a prayer for our little boy, Noah, that would be wonderful. He has an appointment in 2 months that may lead to some life changing decisions for him in the way of some medical procedures, so all prayers would be awesome! God is good! Thanks for all you do!

Hey, I've been looking for the link to enter into the contest for the P90X give away.  I haven't seen it, so I thought I'd do what others have done and post my story.

I've seen the P90X on TV and have really been interested in it.  However, my husband is the only one working right now because we have a son who has issues with behavior, socializing, vision, and medical.  This really makes school hard for him and he has spent a few years at home with me homeschooling.  He just started 6th this week and already he is being picked on and no one will eat lunch with him.  I've been praying that God will send him a true friend.

In addition my other son, has anixety issues with school.  And, to top it off I'm Type 1 diabetic with a BMI of about 44.  I honestly don't eat a lot, but fill up quickly on small meals.  The doctor said that this is probably a diabetes complication.  

Please pray for my son.  If the P90X is still available, please enter my name.

All for Christ!

What a blessing P90X would be for me. I just had our forth child 8 weeks ago and though I'm down to pre-baby weight, I still have 70 pounds to lose. I, like many others, have been on the heavy side all my life. Two years ago I decided to change that. I lost 65 pounds in 4 months! I never finished losing the rest of my weight becasue I got pregnant with our forth child.I went to the gym five days a week back then and was eating 1500 calories. As it stands now, my husband has been unemployed for 3 months. Money is SUPER tight right now.In fact it's so tight that we made the grueling decision to have my husband join the Army. He will be gone 9 weeks in bootcamp and then have special training for 12 weeks. On top of that they have told us that he will deploy for up to a year. We can't afford a gym membership or babysitting for our now four children. I would LOVE to use P90X while he's at bootcamp and deployed and have him come home to a new wife! I've always dreamed of some sort of a "reveal" for him once I lose the weight and since he'll be gone, this would be perfect. Will you help me with that?

I am in Girl's Athletics in my school, and it's required that we do a P90X workout. When I told my mom about it, she was jealous. Later while doing the dishes, I heard about the P90X giveaway. I thought it would be a great surprise for Mom. Please help me surprise her!
Good luck, Scott! Smile
