Event Date: February 01, 2015 to April 21, 2015 A Global Online "21-DAY CHALLENGE" Weight-Loss and Weight-Management Program for MEN and WOMEN For busy moms, dads, students, children, executives, business owners, teachers and the like Photograph by Peter Yang. Sometimes you need to give your body a rest from what you have been eating regularly, such as meats, especially those that take quite a bit of time to digest and to rid the body of toxins that came in through certain foods eaten. Over the last eight years I have faced obesity twice and have journaled my progress to freedom. Further, in writing several books to help others overcome obesity as well, I have now created online weight loss / nutrition and weight management "events" for those whom are "on-the-go", have limited finances to join gyms and weight loss groups and programs and for those whom simply cannot afford to nor have the time to exercise 1-2 hours per day as well as endure the pounding that "daily" jogging puts on your knees. My solutions to weight loss, weight management, nurition and getting your health back on track is for any one of any age. Within my books I discuss how I lost 170lbs, beat obesity twice and sculpted an eating, workout and overall nutrition plan that can be done ANYWHERE. HOW THIS WILL WORK: A) Complete the Registration for your FREE Eventbrite Ticket so we know you're participating in this ONLINE (which you can do from anywhere in the World and on any device) WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE/PROGRAM B) Purchase the following books from GOOGLE PLAY (https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=GuQDBAAAQBAJ) from any device, to download and get started: 1) The 7 Day Detox (21 days), 2) The 21 Day Salad Fast (21 Days), 3) The Smoothie Fast (21 Days) and 4) The Workout Workbook (it can also be printed as a PDF to journal your progress) Book 1 Link (Detox Fast): https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=GuQDBAAAQBAJ Book 2 Link (Salad Fast): https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=4twLBAAAQBAJ Book 3 Link (Smoothie Fast): https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=UlZRBAAAQBAJ Book 4 Link (Workout Workbook): https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=pajwAwAAQBAJ C) After completing each book (start on the 1st day of each month and resting for one week in between books and to give your body a break from working on it) promptly begin the next week and book. I listed three books to get you started on your first "Three Month Fitness Program". YOU NEED TO GET READY: On average, past participants weight loss (no guarantee; and you need to do the work, which is "light" in order to succeed) between 10-15 pounds per month. My weight loss was 12 pounds per month.

Though James Murphy has been in the music industry for the better part of his life, he didn't receive widespread recognition from the independent music scene until he started releasing music with his LCD Soundsystem project in the early 2000s. By the time LCD released its first album, though, Murphy was somewhat of an elder statesman of the hip New York music scene. His lyrics of growing old and seeing youths redefine what's perceived as cool managed to resonate well with a listener base and LCD Soundsystem's three albums were all well received and lauded with critical praise. While Murphy decided to disband LCD Soundsystem in 2011, to concentrate on other musical endeavors, he can still be found playing DJ sets where his love of disco, funk and early electronic music are on full display.
