Do You want a Veggie Burger

 
Hi I am Andy and together with Minna, we are the founders of the Foco Academy. We focus on mentoring and teaching the Success Principles and how to apply the principles to the 3 areas of life that money can’t buy: Health, Time, and Love Relationship.

 

Do you want some veggies in your burger?

           

Are you confused about all the latest fad diets out there? For as long as I could remember, there was always some type of diet that was in fashion during the time, and then a few years later, someone says that diet was no good and there’s a better one. Some of the more popular ones were probably the Atkins diet, or in recent years, the Paleo diet and the ketogenic diet. And then of course, there are people that says the Paleo is not good for your health and that the Keto diet doesn’t work.

 

With all the new diets out there, how do you know what is healthy or safe to eat? Are you just going to blindly...

Dangers of Natural Herbal Supplementation

 
[We are the Foolish Couple, Andy and Minna, founders of the Foco Academy. We focus on mentoring and teaching the Success Principles and how to apply the principles to the 3 areas of life that money can’t buy: Health, Time, and Love Relationship.] 

 

Dangers of “Natural” Supplementation

 

Nowadays, more and more people are looking for natural supplements such as Ayurvedic and herbal medicine from traditional Chinese medicine to lose weight, for adrenal support, performance enhancement, digestive health or just general health and well-being. But there is one common mistake that can pretty much overwrite any of the benefits of their supplementation.

 

And that mistake is people make the assumption that because the supplementation is supposedly ‘all natural’ and is not a prescription drug, that it is safe for them to use.

Just because something is ‘labeled’ as natural doesn’t necessarily mean that it is good for...

Happy Remembrance Day

 

Happy Remembrance Day.

 

Today, on Veterans Day, we honor the heroes who lost their lives during the first World War. In Canada, we actually call it Remembrance day.

 

HI I am Andrew from the Foolish Couple. In our blogs, we mostly guides you on the 3 things in life that you cannot buy, even if you have an unlimited supply of money. Those 3 things are health, love, and time.

 

Today, not only do we honor the fallen heroes of days past, but we should also honor our own fallen heroes. The hero who I’d like to honor today is my dad. Isn’t it funny that you don’t miss your heroes until they are gone?

 

It’s been over two years since he passed, and he is still teaching me things after he was gone.

 

I want to share with you something that my dad did religiously, every night, before going to bed, all the way until he wasn’t physically able to do it because of his advanced Parkinson’s.

Every night, just before going to bed, he...

Known Toxic Chemicals in our Food Supply

 

HI, I’m Andrew from the Foolish Couple.

In our blogs we typically talk about the things that money can’t buy, which are: Health, Time, and Love. Today, I want to talk about something that is affecting our health that you may not be aware of.

 

I am talking about the Known toxic chemicals in our food supply.

 

While many of you may be following the latest sports scores, Hollywood scandal or the political issues that are happening, did you catch the news that can affect your health and the health of your family? I bet you, most of you probably missed it. It was buried amongst all the glorious mumble jumble of politics, scandals and sports. But I read it, and I’m here to share my thoughts with you.

 

There were two very important reports that just came out last week. One was from EWG which stands for The Environmental Working Group. EWG released the latest results of their testing for potentially hazardous chemicals in our drinking water across the...

Cold Water Thermogenesis

 

Hi,

It's Andrew from the Foolish Couple.

As fall officially rowed in September 1st, most people close off their pools for next summer.

As you can see my pool is super clean and it’s this time of year that I actually do the most swimming when the water gets colder and colder.

 

A lot of you may not know, but I do have degenerative arthritis that is particularly bad in fall and winter as temperatures drop, and that is one of the reasons I refuse to travel back to Vancouver or any other place that is cold for that matter for the next few months.

 

And anyone with arthritis can tell you how their joints hurt more when it gets cold.

 

But there is a saying in Chinese, to use “poison to fight Poison” and that is what I do during fall and winter, and that is to swim in cold water to help with my arthritis.

 

Swimming in cold water or Cold Thermogenesis has the benefits to reduce inflammation and to  boost recovery. And oddly enough a long enough...

When Should You Start to Worry About Longevity?

 

Hi its Andrew from the Foolish Couple.

 I get asked all the time, what is the best age to start worrying about my longevity.

Longevity refers to your physical health, mental health, energy, vibrancy and freedom of mobility.

 This week we are sharing our 1-week liver cleanse for Clearer skin, leaner body and no cravings to friends and family. But the cleanse is so much more.

It’s the first step towards longevity and preventing Chronic illnesses.

 Chronic illnesses are no longer an old person disease. It used to be that you don’t get Chronic conditions such as depression, psychotic conditions, hyperactivity, hypertension, high cholesterol, Crohn’s disease/ulcerative colitis and type II diabetes until you are older like 60 years and older.

 

However, that is no longer the case, millennials born between early 80’s to mid 90’s are besieged by chronic illness, with 54% of the generation's respondents reporting that they've been diagnosed...

We're pleased to be the recipient of the Best of Newark Award in the Nutrition and Success Coach category 4 years in a row. 

To celebrate with our fans, we will be delivering more concise, mini-blogs every weekend that showcases our success blueprint.

The focus of our mini-blogs is on Time and Health, the 2 things that cannot be bought in life. 

 

 

Imagine this. You are sick, and you are broke. The only free exercise you can get is to walk along the beach. You go to the beach and start walking. With your luck, high tide comes in and your feet get wet. But, wait, what’s that? Something shiny  washes up the beach and lands right at your feet.

 

You bend down and pick it up. It looks like an antique. Maybe it’s worth something, but it's so filthy that you rub it with your hand to get a better look. And “POOF”. A genie comes out.

 

 

But not the genie that you see in...

Which type of people are you?

<Foco's 2-minute Blogs on Success>

We're pleased to be the recipient of the Best of Newark Award in the Nutrition and Success Coach category 4 years in a row. 

To celebrate with our fans, we will be delivering more concise, mini-blogs every weekend that showcases our success blueprint.

To start off, here's a couple of questions for all of you:

Are you the type of person who would trade your Time for Money (in addition to your job, do you scrub your own toilets, wash your own laundry, mow your own lawn, and do other chores that you don't enjoy doing, because you'd rather do it yourself than pay someone to do the chores)?

Or are you the type of person who would trade Money for Time (hire people to cut your grass, wash your car, clean your house, answer customer service calls, etc) because you realize that your time is worth more than what you are paying for their services?

Which type of people do you think are more successful, wealthy, and healthy?

Which type of people...

The One Thing You are Missing in Life Part 3

 

Hello. My name is Minna from the Foolish Couple. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve talked about why you suck at reaching your own goals. The fact that you get into your own way is the reason why you need a coach. Everyone needs a coach, if you want to succeed. Even coaches need coaches. And the best in the world, no matter what field they are in, they have the best coaches.

 

Having a coach that can work with you and that you are able to work with, will change your entire life. A good coach will sympathize with you, but will push you to your limit. They will change your perspective on how you perceive your problems and road blocks, and stimulate your creativity to get you out of your box and reach for your goal.

 

A good coach will support you and mentor you, but they will not baby you. That’s what your mom is for and that’s why never have your own mom as your coach. It won’t work. If you want to manifest your dreams, go get yourself a coach.

The One Thing You are Missing in Life Part 2

coach goals health success Mar 19, 2019
 

Hello. My name is Minna from the Foolish Couple. Last week, I talked about New Year’s resolution, and, more specifically, how we suck at meeting our goals. And that the reason behind us failing, is because we are our own worst enemy. And that’s why the one thing that most of us are missing is a coach.

 

We all have different goals, so we’d all need different coaches. There are coaches out there that is specific to a career, to a sport, to a skill, to your health, and then there are coaches that are more general in nature such as a life coach.

There are coaches that cost probably around $75 an hour and then there are coaches that cost $5 million a year!

 You say, what? 5 million? Who would pay $5 million for a coach? Well, here’s the thing. Let’s say that you own this company, and your sales for the past few years has plateaued to, let’s just say 5 million. And with the help of this coach, you could bring your company’s sales up to...
