is a scam – Don’t waste your time.

Well, Folks? I stumbled upon this site about a month ago. It seemed too good to be true, but thought “Eh, who knows?” So with minimal effort, I tried it.

Here are the results –

I am now eligible for the $797 payout. BUT – ONLY after completing surveys can you request the payment.

If you click on that it takes you to and seemingly endless loop of crap surveys and attempts to get your credit card with likely bogus offers.

The disclosure (posted below) clearly states that you have to jump through hoops and shell out money on ridiculous offers you do not need in order to request the money you earned completing, for this level of payment, 10 offers.

The verdict? – TOTAL Waste of time.

5 Freedoms Gained From Planning Your Meals

Every July 4th like clockwork we here in the United States gather together to celebrate our independence as a country. It is liberating and exhilarating to think how far we have come as a nation.

July 4th can also be used to mark a personal milestone celebration of choosing your own independence by taking the time to recognize the freedoms that you grant to yourself by finally putting your health first.

Preparing a nutritious, well-balanced, macro positive diet for yourself day in and day out takes time, thought, calculation and preparation. Make no mistake, it is an accomplishment, one you should be proud of.

We have become overwhelmingly a grab and go society. Cooking has fallen aside to drive through convenience, and our bodies pay the price.

When you make the choice to meal prep, whether you do it from scratch at home yourself or you choose the convenience of you are claiming your freedom and celebrating your life.

Take a look at the (5) Freedoms You Gain from meal prepping:

#1 Financial Freedom – We all have to eat. That’s just the way we are designed. Our human bodies run on food, it is our fuel. That said, fuel is expensive – especially when prepared and served. The average American who eats out for 3 meals a day will spend anywhere from $16.00 ($480 a month) to $37.00 a day ($1110 a month) and up. Lattes, snacks, breakfast, lunch, dinner, midnight snack, that quick trip to the 7-11, it all adds up.

By simply planning ahead and either placing your weekly food order through or making a detailed list and heading to your local Sam’s Club or BJ’s you can cut that bill to a mere fraction of what you would spend eating out all of the time.

#2 Freedom to Do More – ENERGY! One of the biggest benefits of food prep is how much better you feel physically when your body is being properly fueled. We are taught to eat 3 meals a day when in fact you really do far better to eat 5-7 small meals throughout the day every 2-3hours. Think of your metabolism like a fire. Which is easier… toss a few coals on an already burning fire to stoke it? – or – wait till it goes out and try and start it again? Most of us have been doing it all wrong and wondering why we don’t get the results we want.

#3 Freedom to Sleep – We all love to sleep and it eludes some of us. Interrupted sleep patterns as well as insomnia can stem from poor nutrition and deficiencies. When eating properly, they should, over time, correct themselves. This allows a more restful slumber.

#4 Freedom from Disease – Three of the biggest killers in the USA today are Heart Disease, Diabetes, and Obesity. All three have been shown to be controllable if not correctable with a well sculpted and well-managed eating plan. Eating well is the very best insurance you can have.

#5 Freedom of Time – Life is so hectic. Work, school, kids, families, friends, social events, taking the time to shop, cook and meal prep may seem daunting. The thing is, it takes only 1 day out of your week to get everything ready or even easier, just place your order online and swing by and pick everything up from Superfit Foods.

This allows you freedom of time during the rest of the week. Just grab and go, minus the drive through leaving you with more free time to socialize with family and friends and frankly – take some much needed and well-deserved relaxation time.

So this July 4th – Celebrate! If you have found this article it isn’t by accident. You are ready to embark on the journey to health and freedom. Cheers!

An Ancient Technique Used to Relieve Pain is Making a Comeback

If you are like most people, you are most likely not familiar with The Graston Technique. This is the modern adaptation of a much older Chinese method known as Gua sha.

Gua sha when translated means “scraping bruises”.  Before you cringe and click away from this page hear us out…

Gua sha is a traditional Chinese medical treatment where the skin is scraped by a smooth edged instrument often made of stone, ceramic or bone in order to regenerate blood flow to the damaged areas of the body. Oil may or may not be applied to the skin, but it does make the instrument slide more easily.

Gua sha can be done on any area of the body where the patient is experiencing pain. Though mostly you will see no visible results on the skin, only a slight redness which is typical if you rub any area repeatedly. When you do reach an area where there are underlying adhesions and attachments of muscle fibers you can feel a difference. While still not exactly pain, the sensation can become intense as the trapped blood and fibers work themselves free under the pressure of the practitioner’s touch and the instrument itself. This will leave a distinctive tell-tale Gua sha treatment bruise. Bruising from this treatment tend to fade within 24-72 hours.

How is the more modern Graston Technique different from traditional Gua sha?

gaston techniqueOriginally developed for athletes due to the tremendous stress and strain they place their bodies under it was soon realized that it could greatly benefit the general public just as well. It has been steadily making its way more and more mainstream for the past 20 years.

The Graston Technique is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) and can improve patient outcomes from a huge array of injuries by increasing range of motion as well as healing time. Tools are now stainless steel rather than older less durable materials. They are used to both assess and treat the patient by a knowledgeable practitioner who is versed in what to look and feel for. Abnormal tissue texture is detected and an area is identified that needs attention such as areas of fibrosis, lesions or damaged tissue.

What are Gua sha and The Graston Technique used for?

They are commonly used for relief from:

  • Back pain

  • Neck pain

  • Shoulder pain

  • Common colds that will not go away

  • Congestion resulting from colds or allergies

  • Fever

  • Cough

  • Muscular pain

  • IT Band injury

  • Tennis Elbow

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • Golfers Elbow

  • Achilles Tendonitis

  • Arthritic joints (secondary soft tissue lesions)

  • Breaking up old scar tissue to allow healing of soft tissue injuries

How Long Does It Take to Feel Results?

There is no blanket answer. The longer ago an injury was sustained and more damage the body has taken on, the longer it will take to recover. Treatment results can be seen in as little as one session but can take many more depending on the severity of the condition.

Everyone’s favorite question: Does it hurt?

Everyone’s tolerance for sensation is different. A single treatment itself usually will take 10 to 15 minutes. The majority of people have no trouble at all tolerating the treatment. Others say they enjoy the feeling as they can feel the pained area literally breaking up. If you have an incredibly low pain tolerance, do mention it before you begin your first treatment and make sure to speak up if it becomes too much.

Daily life takes its toll on our bodies. Making sure to do proper maintenance on yourself, including regular chiropractic treatments, can do wonders for your overall health and quality of life. Working The Graston Technique into your health plan can boost your mobility and reduce your pain levels in ways you may have never expected.

Being a competitor in the world of men’s physique this treatment has greatly helped my ability to perform in the gym by expanding my range of motion and getting much-needed blood to muscles that had gotten fatigued and formed adhesions. I am very thankful to have found it!

Is SEO Flooding the Internet with Pointless Crap?

Well, unfortunately, the simple straight forward answer is “YES”. Thanks to SEO (Search Engine Optimization) there is a lot of content that is added simply in order to get the attention of search engine crawlers rather than the express attention of their targeted readers.

Quality content is getting fewer and further between online.

  • Click bait sites
  • On Page pop-ups
  • “Articles” (and I use that distinction loosely) where there are a single picture and a single line of text and a big ‘ole NEXT arrow next to it requiring you to poke through a dozen or more pages in order to get the gist of the author.  This is done because each page counts as a click on the site and can boost their analytics artificially, yet technically without cheating (using any blackhat SEO).
  • Articles that read incredibly redundantly and unnaturally because they are overstuffed with keywords

Many articles that would not be written at all are written simply for the sake of SEO. It works as part of a funnel to guide potential clients or fans to your website. Make no mistake… as silly as it seems? It does work. The bots find the keywords and your site, thanks to blogging, will slowly increase in rank on Google, Bing, Yahoo and others.

Why is that important? – the higher up on the search engines you are, the more likely clients are to find you, and you cannot buy your way to the top!

The Key is to write quality blogs written so that another human will want to read them, not just the crawlers. It’s a tricky balance and takes some time to master.

Blogs should be fun, informative, researched and easy to read. If writing isn’t your forte, and you would like some help – Ghostwriting is a fantastic option. I blog for a multitude of clients all in their own name. The articles are approved and then posted. They add value to the main mission of the site and company itself as well as boost the traffic and overall SEO performance.

Interested in having blogs written?
Chat with me. While it is just me here at Sarah Barendse Creative Designs, and yes, I can only write so much, I also have a whole team of writers backing me up over at Damonaz Design. 




Has your baby seen a chiropractor yet?

The earlier you start chiropractic adjustments the better off you will be for the rest of your life. When babies are born, passing through the birth canal can be a traumatic event for the body. Doctors and nurses can add to it by pulling and pushing in order to get the baby fully into the new world. It is very easy for the spine or other adjoining bones to slip slightly out of alignment.

This brand new little spine – aligned or not – is what that child will have to grow from. Our Spine and the nerves housed in and around it is our lifeline to our brain. It is responsible for every system and organ, every conscious and automatic action. When in alignment it all works perfectly. But putting a kink in the line slows or stops electrical impulse, leading to problems. Sometimes a baby who constantly cries or fusses is not just a fussy baby, they are legitimately uncomfortable due to a misalignment.

Babies can be adjusted as early as the first day of life. Though it is a good idea for all newly arrived children, here are some symptoms you may notice which are signs that they could benefit from an adjustment:

Future dental work can be avoided by your new baby visiting a chiropractor. They can adjust the roof and palate of the mouth allowing teeth their very best shot at coming in straight.

Arching of the back – Babies natural shape is an adaptable flexible body position which allows them to hug tight to their mother. If your baby seems stiff or keeps arching, it may be a sign of pain or tension.

Trouble breastfeeding – If your baby is having trouble latching on comfortably or can only tilt their head to one side an adjustment can help increase the range of motion.

Colic – Though there is no known accepted medical cause, often times an adjustment will help them feel better overall and ease the body’s tension and sooth them to stop crying.

Tilted head – A tilt to their head or rotation indicates restricted neck movement. This can also contribute to flat spots on the head. Seeing a Chiropractor should help unlock a full range of motion.

Constipation / Diarrhea / Sick to the Stomach –  Possible ileocecal valve that needs to be adjusted. If it is stuck open, these are exactly the symptoms it will cause.

If you have a little one in your family, we would love to meet you and get your child on the best path to health throughout their life. Call us today (239) 947-1177 or visit to connect with Dr. Gary Gendron, Nutrition Specialist Bonita Springs | Chiropractor Bonita Springs.

Why Protein?

Why Protein?

If you have been doing any research at all on the topic of dieting and what to eat to get fit, you have likely heard the word protein over and over ad nauseam. Though health information can sometimes be confusing and advice all over the board, one thing every expert and authority in the industry does seem to agree on is the value of having ample protein in your diet.

You need protein in your diet in order to build muscle and solid cellular structure – along with the other two key component macronutrients of carbohydrates and fats, these three key items in the proper amounts and combinations allow your body to function properly and reach top metabolism performance.

Top 5 Protein Facts Most People Do Not Know

  1. Protein is utilized as a major source of energy.
  2. Protein is used for the creation and regulation of hormones and regular bodily functions (like digestion.)
  3. Protein is used for transportation of certain molecules throughout the body.
  4. Protein forms antibodies that help prevent infection, illness, and disease.
  5. Protein is vital for the repair and maintenance of body tissues like muscles, skin, bones, hair, and nails.

Although protein can be found in meat, dairy, poultry, seafood, eggs, and many plant-based foods, here is a list of some of the best sources:

  • Eggs
  • Chicken
  • Fish
  • Steak
  • Ground beef
  • Ground turkey
  • Beans
  • Pork
  • Green Vegetables

Many people will supplement their protein intake by drinking shakes. There are a lot of good solid nutritional protein shakes on the market, but they should be used as supplementation only. The majority of your protein should be coming from real whole foods.

How much protein do you need daily?

The rule of thumb is that for every 1 lb. of body weight you should take in 1 gram of protein. So if you are, for example, 150 lbs. you would require 150 grams of protein per day total.

When athletes diet they weigh all of their food. Accuracy is key. As close as we think eyeballing an amount can be it is often surprising just how off we all can be. It may seem small, but over time a little here and a little there can add up to a lot and throw off your hard worked for results.

At Superfit Foods, we prepare each meal with a protein, carb and veggie source. Everything is measured and weighed to get you just the right blend of macronutrients your body needs to kick start the results you are looking for. They are then packaged fresh and made ready for you to pick up at your earliest convenience.

If you are ready to get your protein intake on track – give Superfit Foods a try!

How to Get the Beach Body Everyone Wants

How to Get the Beach Body Everyone Wants

Summer sneaks up on us every single year and most of us, simply are not ready for it.

With its hot sun and warm breezes, we declare summer the new stepsister of New Year’s Eve. That’ right – It is time for Summer Resolutions! Decide what you want and go for it.

If you are like most people, feeling confident in a bathing suit is a challenge. We are here to make that challenge less daunting and show you how to reach your goals the right way.

Any time you decide you would like to make a change in your life it is incredibly helpful to have a clear idea of not only what you don’t want, but also exactly what you are aiming for. Visualize the perfect healthy version of you that you could be. Once you have that image clearly defined, it’s time to set the goals to get you there.

If you are looking to get the beach body that everyone wants – Look no further.

How to get beach ready:

Goal Step 1: Get Up and Move

Exercise is vital to health overall as well as for leaning down, sustaining, or building up. Body transformation requires motivation and stick-to-itiveness. Muscle doesn’t build overnight nor does fat shed. It takes time, but if you put in the work and just keep at it, it will happen. Working with a personal trainer who can set a workout plan for you and your body type and goals can help get you to your goals.

Goal Step 2: Hydrate

Water is vital for every cell in your body and when you are dieting and working out, even more so. It is recommended to drink a gallon of water per day over the course of the day

Goal Step 3: Get Your Diet Right

Summer is a great time to boost your nutrition. Hotter weather is a natural match for lighter meals. Fresh vegetables, lean meats, and wonderful side dishes along with refreshing beverages can satisfy your body while building and sustaining it; getting you lean and beach ready.

It may seem counter-intuitive thanks to our yo-yo diet culture here in America, but one of the biggest obstacles to obtaining and maintaining a proper weight is that we simply do not eat often enough. The standard 3 meals a day can actually cause your metabolism to slow down, especially if you are eating the wrong things. Eating the proper mix of protein and carbohydrates along with fruits and vegetables in the right portions 4-5 times a day will boost your metabolism and never leave you feeling hungry.

You do not have to starve yourself to lose or maintain weight.

No matter what your objective is, Superfit Foods is happy to help. We take the work out of eating healthy – trying to calculate your macros and decide what to eat and when, shopping, lugging groceries home, cooking, weighing out food – all of it takes up a great deal of time!

Why do it when you don’t have to?

Check it out: No matter what your goal, we have you covered.

If your goal is to LEAN DOWN

Lose weight and shed fat.

If your goal is to SUSTAIN

Happy where you are and just looking to keep the momentum going!

If your goal is to BUILD UP

Grow and make gains, the healthy way.

Summer can be a tempting time

We want you to enjoy the barbecues and occasional beer – we just want you to look good while you’re doing it! Make sure to keep these tips handy to help you out this summer:

Summer Dieting Tip 1: If you are headed out to a social event where you know you are going to be tempted, either eat first or bring food with you. You may feel odd about that at first but we guarantee no one has ever held it against someone for sticking to their plan and getting in shape… mostly what you will get in response is the envy at your resolve.

Summer Dieting Tip 2: Cheat Meal. Allow yourself one cheat meal a week. You are human and dieting isn’t a punishment. Reward yourself for sticking to it and believing in yourself enough to achieve your dreams. Just one cheat meal a week can also work in your favor, confusing your body and actually ramping up your metabolism.

Making the decision to get in shape is a healthy choice for both mind and body. When you look good, you feel good!


Thanks for reading our blog. Wishing you a warm, wonderful transformative summer – See you at the beach!

Have you fallen out of Gratitude Mode?

I found myself today feeling down in the dumps. Looking at my bills and my overall financial picture and started in on the “if onlys”. The fact is that you can’t change past happenings or decisions. You can only go from here.


I feel bad because I don’t feel like I am where I “should be”. The question is, according to what or who? I know darn well that there are no accidents in life. You are always exactly where you are meant to be at any given moment.


As kids, from that perspective, we all believed that adults had it together. The truth is, almost no one really has it all together. I am even suspicious that there really is such a thing as an adult at all. What I see is everyone muddling through life, making the best decisions that they can and hoping for the best possible outcome.


With all of that said, this blah attitude I found myself in today made me realize my problem. It’s not that anything is wrong. It’s the perspective has shifted. Somehow, I have fallen out of Gratitude Mode. Rather than looking around and appreciating everything that I have in my world, I have gotten focused on the little bit of lack that is there.


This is a very dangerous slope to be on. Like attracts like and if you are focused on lack, more will be coming.


So, if you also see yourself in what you just read… take my advice I am giving myself and snap the hell out of it.



Lean Down to Shed Excess Baby Weight

Let’s face it. As much as we love our newborn bundles of joy, what we don’t love is the excess baby weight that gets left behind. On average it is recommended for expectant mothers to be to gain between 15-40 lbs. depending on the size of their frame.

Now subtract from that the average baby’s weight at the time of birth which is 7.5lbs (though of course, that can vary). At minimum, you are left with 7.5lbs and top end 32.5lbs or more of extra unwanted weight that you are currently carrying around.

The human female body is designed to carry children, to grow in order to support a new life and to contract once that new life is brought forth. That post baby shrink down can be helped along by making sure that the weight loss is done in the healthiest form possible to support the bodily changes and allowing it to adjust back to normal.

Diet and exercise are key to getting back in shape – But so is rest!

Giving birth, though a natural process, is traumatic to the body. Rest and recuperation are needed postpartum. On top of that, you now have a new baby who isn’t regulated by your time clock. You may not get much sleep. Feeling sleep deprived, overwhelmed, and exhausted usually decreases your motivation to hit the gym and plan out a diet.

That is where SuperFit Foods comes in. We can take some of the weight off your shoulders by preparing all of your meals for you so you can focus on your new son or daughter while still getting all of the exact nutrition your body needs to make a full recovery.

How the Lean Down Plan can help

With all of your food fresh cooked and pre-made all you have to go is grab and go!

We make eating simple.
With the Lean Down Plan, you will get a selection of:
– Main meals
– Boost meals
– Breakfast meals
– Health Snacks

These selections are a macro mix of pure lean proteins, carbohydrates, and fresh nutritious vegetables. You don’t have to give up sweets either – Peanut Butter Protein Balls and Crunchy Granola Bars kill the sweet tooth while keeping you on track.

All you have to do is – place your order – everything is made fresh for you, ready to grab and go.

This is the new clean approach to eating right that will free up your time and release those extra pounds the right way. To take the first step towards shedding that excess baby weight, please visit to learn more or place your first order.
