14 Tips for your Best Valentine’s Day this February 14th


  1. Be active. Whether you have a regular exercise routine or if you just keep yourself moving around the house doing normal chores like cleaning or gardening or washing your car, keep your body in movement.
  2.  Avoid processed foods. Packaged foods and processed meats contain far fewer vitamins and minerals and huge amounts of chemicals and empty calories.
  3. Avoid refined sugar whenever you can. Look at the ingredients in the food you are eating and check for all the forms of sugar: glucose, sucrose, dextrose, maltose, fructose, maltodextrin, high fructose corn syrup, cornstarch, etc.
  4. Beware of the grains, including the root vegetables also. Wheat, corn, rice, oatmeal, and most root vegetables, like potatoes, carrots, beets, turnips, etc. are biochemically designed to get stored as fat. They should be kept at a minimum in your diet.
  5. Avoid trans fats and saturated fats. These are found primarily in processed foods like chips, cookies, donuts and cakes, and a lot of the cheaper cooking oils.
  6. Follow Dr. Hoody’s Rule of 3’s. Day by day and week by week make certain that you have three times more vegetables than protein and three times more protein than grains (including the root vegetables).
  7. Stop smoking. Stop being around people who smoke and do not smoke yourself.
  8. Keep your body at its ideal weight or get your body to its ideal weight. At Healthier2gether, we specialize in exactly how to get those results.
  9. Know your body. Get a regular blood test, quarterly, where you can measure cholesterol, blood sugar, A1C, and all the vitamins including Omega 3’s.
  10. Regularly check your blood pressure and pulse. If you do not have such a monitor, get one, they are inexpensive on Amazon.
  11. Purchase a metabolic scale. A proper metabolic scale will show not only your weight, but your fat mass, visceral fat, lean body mass, free water (which is the best indicator of toxicity), available calcium, and metabolic age. Get in control of your body! The following is a link to our favorite metabolic scale that you can find on Amazon
  12. Get a DNA test with a full medical metabolic analysis. With that, you can customize exactly what nutrients, food, exercise, and lifestyle choices are absolutely best for your body.
  13. Be grateful. Start every day by thanking the creator for everything you have. Giving thanks releases endorphins and changes our biochemistry; it makes us healthy.
  14. Tell someone you know that you love them. Ask someone to be your Valentine. Because when you give love, you get love 10 times back.

And finally, enjoy our recipe for the month that follows Dr. Hoody’s Rule of 3’s with plenty of cruciferous vegetables that have pre and probiotic qualities to boost your immune system, crunchy cucumbers, and delicious watermelon that’s full of electrolytes, and grass-fed beef that is high in
Omega 3s for cardiovascular health and the best source of protein.


Happy Valentine’s Day

Vitamin D is Essential

Vitamin D: Essential for Health and Proper Weight.

We will explore the 3 reasons why most Americans are deficient in vitamin D and the 5 things you must do to raise your vitamin D to healthy levels.

Healthy levels of vitamin D help us fight disease by increasing calcium absorption, by protecting bone, and improving muscle function including your heart. Healthy vitamin D levels also help boost weight loss by being an essential part of a healthy metabolism that can burn fat as needed. Vitamin D also helps to prevent depression. Some of the best food sources a vitamin D would be fatty fish. It is estimated that over 1 billion people worldwide are deficient in vitamin D and the World Health Organization has claimed that if every person on the planet consumed just 1000 international units of vitamin D each day, the mortality age would increase by two years per person.

The Benefits of Healthy & Delicious Dark Cocoa or Chocolate

This is an update as there has been much research in the last couple years on the benefits of cocoa. Cocoa is chocolate before sugar or dairy products are added. As we have expressed multiple times, if chocolate is 60 to 80% cocoa and the first ingredient is not sugar, it qualifies as being high quality cocoa.  Much of this research has been done by the Taube Center for the Aging Brain at Columbia University. Research has shown a 14% increase in memory in just 12 weeks mainly due to the increased flavonoids in cocoa which can help you recall current and old memories.

Dr. Hoody's Rule of 3s

Doctor Hoody’s Secret Diet to Survive the Modern World – The Rule of Threes

Our planet, our environment and our lifestyles have changed. Today there are over 82,000 certified synthetic toxic chemicals legally released into our environment every day. We have access to food 24 hours a day, which humans have never had. The result has been detrimental to our health. For the first time in human history more of us die from obesity than starvation.

Our diets must be reimagined. A diet that enables the body to build, rebuild and adapt in a healthy way is not the diet that most of us eat. Yet there is a simple guideline to follow for a healthy diet that will help us meet the challenges of today. It is my The Rule of Threes.

If we do nothing else but adopt my Rule of Threes, we can change the trajectory of humanity towards a healthier, happier, and active lifestyle. My Rule of Three Diet simply consists of 3 times more vegetables than proteins, and 3 times more protein than grains (including root vegetables). This is a diet that doesn’t require counting calories or relying on supplements. It is easy and will reset your metabolism and help you lose weight.
