AG Brnovich Kicks Off AZ Consumer Protection Week: March 4th - 10th 

Arizona Consumer Protection Week is held in conjunction with National Consumer Protection Week, a nationwide campaign aimed at consumer protection and fighting fraud.

2017 Top AZ Consumer Fraud Complaints: 
1.    Telemarketing Scams 
2.    Motor Vehicle Sales, Repairs, & Rentals 
3.    Timeshares 
4.    Telecommunications (i.e. Internet service providers, cell phones, pay TV, bundling) 
5.    Mortgage and Real Estate
5 Warning Signs of a Scam:

1. The Offer Seems Too Good to be True
If it seems too good to be true, it is. Examples include money left to you from an unknown relative or being awarded a grant you did not apply for. Be very suspicious of winning a large sweepstakes prize unless you can confirm its authenticity.

2. They Want Private Information
Anytime someone tries to get your bank account number, Social Security Number, or other sensitive information, you should automatically be on alert. Don't give out personal information.

3. They Ask You to Wire Money
STOP! It's a scam. Con-artists prefer untraceable payment methods like wire transfers.

4. Requests for Fees
Never pay fees or taxes in advance unless you are 100% certain it is not a scam. It is illegal for someone to require up-front payment before funding a loan or paying out a sweepstakes prize.

5. Pressure
Scammers will often put pressure on their victims and urge them to pay immediately or lose the opportunity.

Ketogenic Diet 

The ketogenic diet is becoming a trend among people looking for quick, dramatic weight loss.

The diet is a high-fat, moderate protein, low-carbohydrate food plan that shifts the body to burn fats as opposed to carbohydrates.  Ketosis occurs when the body is burning fat for fuel and producing ketones (in the liver).  The ketogenic diet is not for everyone, and you should check with your physician before starting it.

DO eat real food. Veggies that grow above ground, beef (organic, grass fed), chicken (organic, pastured), salmon (wild-caught), butter, heavy cream (organic is a must, raw dairy is even better!).
DO replace your electrolytes, but not with diet Gatorade or sugary energy type drinks. Drink bone broth or chicken broth. Think sea salt. Make sure you get at least 2 tsp per day.
DO eat plenty of healthy fats! Coconut oil, avocado oil, avocados, butter, heavy cream, extra virgin olive oil, animal fats (preferably from grass fed animals) butter and MCT oil. Fat is a source of energy and provides mental clarity it’s brain food!
DO use natural alternative sweeteners vs. artificial ones -  i.e.: don't use sucralose/Splenda, DO use stevia or erythritol.  
DO avoid fast food. Even though you can get burgers without a bun at McDonald's or wherever, fast food just isn't healthy. It is full of chemicals and preservatives and they usually don't even use real cheese and the meat often has fillers. Even the salads could have hidden sugars.
DON'T eat low carb tortillas, "sugar-free" candies or jello, low-carb packaged bread, diet soda, low carb bars, shakes or frozen microwaveable meals or zero calorie artificially sweetened drinks or water flavoring.
DON'T eat low-fat food. Avoid buying fat-free or low-fat cheese or yogurt.  You need to eat full-fat cheese, and plenty of healthy fats.  If your Keto diet includes yogurt, make sure it is full fat yogurt (no sugar added).
DON'T eat bad fats! Corn oil, vegetable oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated oil and canola oil are the worst!
DON'T look up nutrition information after you've eaten something always look it up before! 
Foods to Eat:

  •     Low starch veggies:  asparagus, broccoli, celery, kale and other green, leafy veggies
  •     Small amounts of certain fruits:  A handful of berries or a few sections of grapefruit
  •     Proteins: Grass fed beef, lamb, eggs (preferably pastured and organic), hard cheeses (cheddar or parmesan)
  •     Nuts and Seeds:  Macadamia nuts, pecans, coconut (unsweetened), pumpkin seeds, raw cacao nibs, etc.
  •     Fats and Oils:  Coconut oil and butter, grass-fed butter or ghee, extra virgin olive oil, cocoa butter, tallow, etc.
  •     Sweeteners:  Stevia (organic drops preferred), lo han or monk fruit, erythritol

Foods to Avoid

  •     Grains (pasta, breads, cereals, cookies, cakes, etc.)
  •     Beans
  •     Most fruits
  •     Starchy Vegetables (potatoes, carrots, corn, most squashes, etc.)

Teen sensation CAROLINE ROMAN tops "High School Nation" Spring '18 tour 

At the age of 17, breakout teenage singer Caroline Roman, is the newest pop artist to take the nation by storm as one of the top performers on the 9th annual critically lauded High School Nation tour along with headlining artist Plain White T's ("Hey There Delilah") which will be launching in Phoenix on March 5rh.  Caroline just wrapped an amazing Grammy week 2018 in New York with SRO performances leading up to the historic telecast on January 28th. 

Roman broke out last fall as the focal point of the eighth installment of High School Nation at continuously sold out dates in 32 US cities, headlining at the largest music festival designed exclusively for teens. Her beautiful melodic voice flaunts maturity and confidence on stage yet radiates the innocence of an ingenue. Caroline juggles between her excellence of an 'A' student, pop singer, songwriter, and an all-around predominant performer. The Georgia native is ranked #1 by "Reverbnation" for her hit song "Gold", written as a weapon against teenage suicide espouses that we're all perfect the way we are. Her debut single, "Heat of the Summer," received over 100K plays upon release.
