We will not only show you WHAT to do but also HOW to really achieve a healthier lifestyle.
This challenge will give you all the knowledge you need to live a healthier lifestyle.
After these 22 days you will find it easy to stick to healthy choices that will help you to:
- Have more energy
- Feel less bloated
- Have glowing skin
- Be more focused
- And to feel amazing and ready to kick ass!
During the first days we will provide you with all the theory to reach your goal because we really want you to succeed, to finally live a healthier and happier life. Afterwards, we will go through ALL the excuses you had up to now and turn them into achievable steps for a healthier life, because it’s simply fun to have energy and be in a good mood. Together we can do it.
Participating in a challenge is easy.
The difficult thing is to stay motivated and follow the advice or guidelines you’re given. To achieve any goal in your life the most important thing is to be very clear about WHY you want to do this.
Take 5 minutes focus on this point, and it will be much more likely that you will achieve it.
1- What are the reasons you want to live a healthier life?
Be as specific as possible because this will help you when you’re in doubt.
2- Have this list with you during the duration of the challenge.
It will set your mind to success. Read it every day first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening and, of course, whenever you are in doubt.
Time is precious and we are all lacking time to do the things we love to do. Instead of looking at time on a daily basis, what we can or cannot do, we can also look at the time we have on this planet. Thankfully we don't know when this runs out. But we can really do a lot for our health, not only to live longer but also to achieve a high-quality life for as long as possible.
- Superfood powders can help you with both:
- Daily time issues: It is difficult to have fresh, organic produce at home every single day. For those Sundays when you can’t hit the grocery store or those days when you come home late in the evening from a work trip and you just can't find anything healthy anywhere, Superfood powders will really help you to fuel your body with nutrients. Not only that, taken on a regular basis it can even boost your health. One single serving of our Super Antiox mix is so concentrated that it contains 4 times more vitamin C than traditional Vitamin C powerhouses like oranges or strawberries, 3 times more Vitamin E than nuts and 4 times more beta carotene (proVitamin A) than 1 carrot.
Eating healthy requires planning. Meal prepping is a popular, easy and effective method and it really helps with healthy nutrition. There are many plans out there that help you to prepare all of your meals in just one day. If you don't want to go that far, it simply helps to have some easy and fast recipes on standby that will always provide you with a nutritious meal.

Our Vegan Carrot Cake with Wake Up.
Delicious, mouth-watering and so healthy. No bad conscience, no belly fat, no tiredness, nothing but health and joy).
Keeping blood sugar levels stable helps to avoid cravings.
The blood sugar drops, when all of the fuel is digested and used and we get hungry. Eating high sugar foods causes blood sugar spikes and subsequent crashes which leads to tiredness, dizziness and cravings. Protein can help out with this. Try to have a bit of protein with every meal. It’s difficult if you’re eating out or traveling… BUT just 1 scoop of Pea Protein gives you 24g of protein. You can even add it to your coffee when you are on the go.
Especially in spring where we should actually explode with lots of energy, often just the opposite is the case. We feel tired and dizzy. Reishi mushroom has been used to help enhance the immune system, reduce stress, improve sleep, and lessen fatigue. People also take Reishi mushroom for health conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Top Health not only contains Reishi but 2 more of the super beneficial Medicinal Mushrooms.
Check it out the article about medicinal mushrooms and make Top Health your go to powder for addressing these issues and you’ll feel much more energized and less tired.
Highly motivated about working out but in the end you find yourself lacking the energy for it? We have everything you need for this situation or any other situation where energy is required:
Extreme Energy mix with maca, ginseng, cacao and guarana will boost your energy levels and get you ready to rock and roll. Give it a try and you’ll see that extreme energy provides you with energy more slowly but steadily, no nervousness no shivering, just pure natural energy.
Do you have projects on your to do list that seem impossible to complete? Can't get your neurons together. Brain fog or not being able to focus is very common, especially when you eat the wrong food. Feeding the brain is the key here. Our brain needs special nutrients to function. Alcohol, sugar and processed foods can worsen brain fog. Wake up is naturally rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Potassium, Magnesium and Zinc, all nutrients that will help to get your grey matter going. Besides that, the most important nutrient for a healthy brain is Omega 3 fatty acids. Try to eat fatty fish at least 2 times a week.
Many people would like to lose a few pounds… But they’ve been pushing it aside for the last 10 years perhaps?
This super simple trick may help you to finally get rid of them: add protein to all of your meals. Protein will make you full and satisfied, so, you automatically eat and snack less which will help you to lose weight. Protein helps you maintain muscle mass and on top of that, it speeds up your metabolism. Protein is your go to nutrient to get rid of the last few pounds.
Up to now this has been quite easy. But now you are telling me to break my evening habit of relaxing with a delicious glass of red wine? No way.
We are not going to tell you to stop drinking any alcohol. Just be aware of how much you drink and why you drink. Alcohol is a toxin. Every now and then a glass is totally fine, just try to save it for a good occasion like out with friends for example. Stay below the recommended limit of no more than one drink a day or 3 drinks at once for a healthy life.
If you need a relaxing drink in the evening try the following:
Take a nice cocktail glass and fill it with sparkling water, add a slice of lemon and a spoon of pomegranate powder. Sit down, put on some relaxing music and have your tasty and healthy cocktail without toxic side effects.
Hormones are necessary in life but are messing up our days, especially the ladies out there know what we are talking about. Our hormones can affect our life in a lot of ways. Positively and negatively. Bad food and lifestyle choices can disrupt the metabolism of our hormones leading to PMS (Premenstrual symptoms) or, in case of the guys out there, sexual performance or the ability to gain muscle mass for instance. Maca is a root that can help out with this. It has the ability to balance out hormones and make us perform better - in many ways)
Adding a spoon of maca to your morning smoothie can sort this out for you. Besides increasing libido, reducing erectile dysfunction, boosting energy and endurance it can also help with improving mood and fighting free radicals.
Changing habits is not always easy. We’ve been feeding our body bad stuff and suddenly we don't. This may lead to protests in the form of bad mood, cravings, anxiety or anger. Be patient. Today’s tip is the most simple one of this amazing and life changing challenge: Drink more water. Try to add a spoon of Pomegranate Powder to your water. It gives it a delicious taste, beneficial nutrients but no added sugar or other chemical stuff.
Life happens, holidays happen and celebrations happen. Living a healthy life doesn't mean you have to be a monk. Sometimes we go to a party with very clear ideas on how much we want to drink or eat but then… you find yourself with a bloated belly and a massive hangover the morning after. Even if this shouldn't happen too often, there is an easy way to help your body defenses by boosting the immune system.With our Super Antiox.
Prepare yourself a nourishing smoothie with almond milk, blueberries, a banana and a spoon of Super antiox. This magic drink will help you to feel better soon and get back on track with your healthy lifestyle.
Anyone guessing what we are trying to say with that? Exactly.
Many people have problems going to the toilet when traveling. Some things CAN only be done at home. A shame because this often spoils part of the holidays.
What you need is fiber. Foods high in fiber can help to unclog your system.
Chia seeds are high in fiber, Iron, Magnesium, Omega 3, 6 & 9, Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium & Protein. From now on you won't travel without your pack of chia seeds. Just add 2-3 tsp to a glass of water and let set for 5 minutes until it starts to thicken, then enjoy.
You’ve almost made it through the challenge. Congratulations!!!.
Anyway, it is important to stay on track and if one day you get off the road then you get back on track. To achieve this, it is important that you know what your possible pitfalls could be and how to avoid them happening. Write everything down on a list and make a note beside each topic on how to act or react if it occurs. For example, if you really have a sweet tooth and difficulty controlling yourself, try not to buy family packs of ice cream or avoid having it at all. Create your own “rules”.
If you can't survive without ice cream, try our healthy extreme ice cream for extra energy paired with health.
There are infinite healthy recipes that you can try and infinite ways to use our products to do so. We’ve made pea protein pizza, cheesecake, cookies, etc. Don’t be afraid to experiment and change the way you cook! replace your favorite meals with a healthy and delicious alternative.
Your immune system is responsible for attacking viruses, bacteria or other harming substances that enter your body. A good functioning immune system depends a lot on what we eat and how we live. A healthy lifestyle helps to protect your body from diseases. The most important molecules for our immune system are antioxidants. Vitamin C is a very powerful antioxidant. 1 tsp. of Super Antiox is more than twice your daily Vitamin C needs. If you feel an upcoming cold, a bit of a runny nose or something similar add a spoon of Super Anti Ox to your morning oats or smoothie. In case you are surrounded by people with a cold or the flu, do this as well as a prophylaxis which may help to keep you safe and sound.
Now that we are all set for a healthy lifestyle, it is important to keep one thing in mind. What we put in our mouth day in day out is in our hands. But many health-related issues are not in our hands. Living in big cities comes with the downside of polluted air, which is more serious in some cities than others. As these things are out of our scope we should be even more aware of what we eat or drink. Want a quick fix for that? Start your day with this anti-pollution-smoothie:
- One large handful of mixed berries (can be frozen)
- One tablespoon OkamiBio Chia Seeds
- 1/2 avocado
- One scoop OkamiBio Vegan protein powder
- Unsweetened almond or coconut milk
- Blend and drink.
So you’ve made it, you have managed to eat healthier, to have a plan B for common issues that arise when trying to achieve a healthy lifestyle, you feel better in general, but you still struggle sometimes with this healthy life.
- We hear you. Living a healthy lifestyle can be challenging sometimes. But the resulting health issues due to an unhealthy lifestyle are much more challenging. There are days for everything. Days for eating cake or a burger as well as days that start with an early morning workout followed by nutritious and healthy foods all day long. The occasional indulgence isn’t going to make or break you! It’s all about balance. Living an 80/20 lifestyle is a good way to stay motivated and not feel deprived. We at Okami Bio love life, having fun, being social and we know that this sometimes comes with unhealthier choices. Life is not black or white, neither is health.
Doing it right 80% of the time, gives you the freedom to make less healthy choices 20% of the time.
Congratulations. You’ve completed the 22-day challenge and you’ve achieved living a healthier life, you are all set with a bunch of things that will help you to overcome past issues and make better choices related to health.
In the last decades our life span increased a lot, which is amazing and has to do with healthier choices but also with progress in medicine.
It is not always the most important thing how old we get to, but rather what is our quality of life, and this is 100% related to your health. Take care of it.
