The One Thing You are Missing in Life Part 1

 

 Hello. My name is Minna from the Foolish Couple. We’re now into mid-March and right around 10 weeks into the New Year. So let me ask you this,

Did you set a New Year’s resolution?

If you did, how’s that working out for you? Or,

If you didn’t, why not?

 

Now, some people never set any New Year’s resolution, and that’s fine. I personally set goals any time during the year so it doesn’t necessary have to be during the New Year.

 But, if your reason for not setting a resolution is because you always get disappointed at yourself, because you never meet your goals, then, maybe it’s time to ask yourself, why? Why do you always fail at getting your new year’s resolutions? Why do you keep disappointing yourself?

 

But, even if you keep failing at your goals, don’t beat yourself up yet.

Truth is, about 90% of all people suck at their new year’s resolutions.

And it doesn’t matter whether your goal is...

Hamburger Day

 

Hi. I am Andrew from the Foolish Couple. We believe that healthy relationships start with health and we help couples achieve total success in health and in relationships through nutrition, exercise, mindset and lifestyle. 

 

I grew up in a very traditional Chinese family, where pretty much every meal was Chinese food, so when I was a kid, like, 6 or 7 years old, having a hamburger was a treat.

 When I was in elementary school, about 2 or 3 times a year, this giant hamburger company called McDonald’s would deliver hamburgers and cheeseburgers to our school and sell them to the kids for about 15 to 20 cents a burger. Yeah, I know, you probably think that I am really really old. What can you buy for 15 to 20 cents nowadays?

 

My friends and I, we always looked forward to hamburger day. We savored every bite, especially because we knew that we won’t get to eat another hamburger until the next hamburger day.  I still remember how that hamburger...

Demystifying Fats Series - Day 6

 

Welcome back to ‘Demystifying fats and the Truth about Sugars’. So far, in our last 5 videos, we’ve talked about the history of how fats are demonized, and what are good fats and bad fats.

 

We’ve also talked about sugars, carbohydrates, and how they are sneaked into our foods without us knowing it. We’ve also talked about metabolic syndrome and how to check if you have metabolic syndrome or not, we have included the links below to our previous episodes so you can go back and watch it.

 

But before we wrap up this series on Demystifying Fats, let’s quickly introduce ourselves. We are the Foolish Couple. My name is Minna, and this is my husband Andy.

 

We made this video series because we are fed with so many lies. As children raised in Chinese households, our parents always taught us what we should and should not eat. What our parents thought were healthy for us, many of them were lies. Not...

Demystifying Fats Series - Day 5

 

We created this series called ‘Demystifying Fats’ because we grew up thinking that fats are fat. Fats makes us fat, and fat gives us high cholesterol, which leads to heart attacks.

 

But that’s not entirely true.

 

In this series, we’ll go deeper into the history of how this ‘belief’ about fats came from, and what is the real truth. We talk about how fats can heal our bodies and what we should eat that will not only improve our health, but eating the right kinds of fats can actually makes us leaner, gives us more energy and vitality, and keep us feeling younger and stronger.

Demystifying Fats and Truth About Sugars (Series) - 1 of 6

 

Hello. I am Andrew, This is my wife Minna, and we are the Foolish
Couple. Both of us have suffered through a variety of health issues, me
with my major accident that left me feeling like a 70 year old man, Minna
with her issues with eczema, allergies, and anemia.

Over the last two years, I lost my dad through Parkinson’s, my older brother had a few scares with diabetes and his kidney, and seeing my mother-in-law slowly
lose her memory through Alzheimer’s. I feel the pain when my family members are suffering from poor health. And many of you probably do too. Fact is, when you suffer from chronic pains and diseases, the people around you also suffers with you.


We want to help you alleviate some of this pain, so we came up with this
video series because we are fed with so many lies about what’s good for
our health. As children raised in Chinese households, our parents always
taught us what we should and should not eat. What our parents thought
were healthy for us,...

HI I’m Andrew from the Foolish Couple.

We all have a father. Some of you may have a very good, close relationship with your father, but not me. For one reason or another, due to family drama and a lot of other factors, I was never really close to my father. Sure, we lived together, we ate together every day, but emotionally we barely talked. And I didn’t realize what I was missing out on, until 12 years ago.

15 years ago, I had already moved away to the Bay Area, far away from my parents and my brother who lived in Vancouver, Canada. So when I found out that my father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s, I couldn’t believe it. And the fact that he had been hiding his condition from his entire family was just baffling to me. When we finally found out about his condition, his Parkinson’s was already very severe. If we had found out earlier, maybe, just maybe, we could’ve helped him make some lifestyle changes and possibly slowed down or even reversed his...

Minna's Experience with a 5-Day Water Fast

Uncategorized Dec 30, 2018

***This blog was originally featured in Wellness Universe back in November, 2018. I'm republishing here because typically, at this time of year, after the holidays are over, the guilt sets in, that you would start wondering about your New Year's Resolutions. And most people would start their new year by 'resolving' to lose the weight that they've gained over the holidays.

 

Because as you will see here, and also from Andy's own fasting experience here, Fasting is one of the best ways to detox, lose excess weight, and gain back the energy and vibrancy.

 

And you are just in time. Because the 'Fasting Transformation Summit' starts in January 14th and ends January 20th. It is free to join and is filled with experts discussing on the topic of fasting. Just click here and sign up for free.
