Do you want to…

  • Live longer?
  • Live healthier?
  • Lower cholesterol?
  • Avoid heart disease?
  • Improve cardiovascular health?
  • Boost brain power?
  • Eat healthier snacks?

It’s time to start eating more nuts, my friend.

New research has come out showing that within only 4 hours of eating nuts or nut oil, study participants experienced noticeable improvement in cholesterol levels and better blood vessel flexibility.

With heart disease being the LEADING cause of death in the United States, this is very significant news.

Nuts provide an excellent energy-boosting snack and are a great replacement for processed, fatty and sugary foods.

Walnuts

Walnuts are fun to eat, full of health benefits and easy to use in a variety of ways.

According to Dr. Penny Kris Etherton, Ph. D, a distinguished Professor of Nutrition, eating walnuts only 4 times a week can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease.

Who needs more reason than that?

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
