How Stress Affects Your Weight

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Over 95% of all weight problems are emotionally driven. Your failed attempts through diets, exercise regimes are not your fault… you have not been tackling the real issue that has being causing your weight gain. Your inability to control your weight has nothing to do with eating too much food, eating the wrong foods or not wanting to do any type exercise. All of these are the EFFECT, not the CAUSE of your weight problem.

We’ve all been there… trapped in the struggle of attempting to release that excess body fat in any way possible. You’ve tried diets, fasts and cross-fit, aerobics and other workout routines, but, nothing ever seems to work! Why is it so difficult to get rid of extra weight, especially those little niggly bits?

 

Even when you get release some, you tend to gain it right back, and sometimes more than you started with. Perhaps you lack the willpower and gave in and ate something you shouldn’t have… then you beat yourself up and decide it’s not going to work for you… and you just give up.

 

This in turn can be disheartening and can seriously affect your self-esteem leaving you feeling ashamed and unworthy especially after working so hard to get the body you want.

 

And when you don’t feel good in your own body, it’s going to impact your mood and overall well-being… it creates more stress and releases more toxins into your body and, because your body cannot process the toxins fast enough, you end up gaining more weight.

 

All you really want is to love the skin you’re in, to feel beautiful, confident, and have more energy to do the things that make you happy.

 

So what is it that’s holding you back?

 

Well maybe it has NOTHING to do with diet or exercise!

 

People are NOT overweight because they overeat. They overeat because of something else… an emotional trigger in their unconscious mind… and that is the key to bringing you back to your ideal body shape and weight.

 

You may not be aware of it consciously, but at some emotional level you have made the association that being overweight makes you feel safe, secure, protected, loved, accepted, rewarded and comfortable or will reduce stress and boredom. In some way your current weight is emotionally driven… and it’s an unconscious trigger, not a conscious one.

 

THE GOOD NEWS is if you remove the emotional cause or trigger, it will reflect on physical level, and your weight release will be effortless and permanent.

 

It now being recognised that stress plays a major role in up to 90% of all aliments and disease in the body including weight gain and unhealthy weight loss (anorexia and bulimia). Sometimes, when the stresses of life get too much, your mind and body react in a variety of different ways to try to handle the stress… and these can become unconscious emotional stress blockages.

 

Many times these emotional blockages will show up initially as excess weight (or unhealthy weight loss) or pain in the body and, sometimes both. Eventually, if not resolved, these emotional blockages can lead to anxiety, panic attacks, depression, and illness in the body…

 

And those niggly bits of excess weigh you just cannot move, regardless of diet or exercise, may well be due to those emotional stress blockages in the body.

 

When you are constantly under stress your cortisol levels rise and toxins are released into your body. If the body cannot process and remove those toxins fast enough, it can lead us into thinking that we are losing control of our bodies… or of the way we think about our bodies… and this can lead to making rash decisions on what to do about it.

 

Your mental and emotional status is going to have a significant influence on how you approach your weight management program.

 

People often diet to please someone else… other people. This is particularly prevalent in relationships… where the fear that their excess weight may prevent them from ever having a loving partner or that it may cause their current partner to stray or maybe why they are not paying as much attention as they used to.

 

But the most important thing about weight release is… YOU MUST DO IT FOR YOU! It’s got to be personal… to make YOU feel healthier… to get more energy for YOUR day… to make YOU feel more attractive… and, while it’s nice to get external notice from others… if you want your weight release to be sustainable and permanent… you have to realise that it’s not about other people and their opinions… it’s about YOU… and how you feel about YOU… it’s an internal conversation… and that’s your motivation… MAKE IT ABOUT YOU!

 

Make no mistake, your level of stress (family, relationships, workplace and environmental) have a big influence over your health and weight release goals… and one you may not have been paying enough attention to. Leading a high stress lifestyle is easily one of the biggest issues that will take a toll on your overall mental and physical well-being.

 

Are you sick and tired of…?

  • Waking up tired all the time?
  • Feeling stressed out all the time?
  • Have feelings of anxiety and depression?
  • Having no energy or petering out early afternoon?
  • Afraid of putting on that bikini or one piece?
  • Concerned about how you will look in tight jeans?
  • Constantly searching for clothes that will hide those bulging body parts?
  • Self-conscious about having your picture taken?
  • Avoiding intimate relationships?
  • Looking in the mirror and not seeing your ideal body shape?
  • Feeling like your weight is out of control?
  • Tried all the weight loss programs and diets with no success?

 

Well I’m here to tell you your Search is over. You CAN get the Body You Deserve!

 

Even if you’ve tried everything under the sun to get rid of the excess weight and keep it off… to attain the body shape you truly desire… and the positive mindset to go with it… you’re about to discover a permanent solution that will end dieting FOREVER.

Five Helpful Weight Loss Tips for Men

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

 

There is a public perception that weight loss is so much easier for men than it is for women – and at times, that can be true – but it is certainly not true across the board. In fact, if you are a man who is struggling to lose weight, that assertion can actually feel discouraging. If you are struggling with your weight loss efforts, here are five weight loss tips for men which can help you along the way.

 

1 – Muscle burns more than fat, so it is important to do exercises that build muscle, along with a strong cardio regimen. While cardio does burn more calories at the outset, muscle building allows you to continue to burn calories while you are not even working out – a good workout regimen will include a decent balance of both types of exercise so you can reap both sets of benefits.

 

2 – Drink plenty of water so that it does not feel as difficult to lower the amount of calories you are taking in. Also, remaining well-hydrated makes every system in your body work more efficiently, including burning calories and dropping pounds. In fact, many people say that water is the “magic ingredient” when it comes to losing weight – do not pass up the opportunity to incorporate this extremely valuable part of your weight loss and health regimen.

 

3 – As a man, your hormonal system is different than a woman’s, and this affects your weight loss progress tremendously. When looking at eating plans and supplements, make sure that you work out a system and choose supplements that are specifically designed to work with your male hormone balance. This is one of the most effective weight loss tips for men you will find.

 

4 – Especially if you are focusing on building muscle as a way to lose weight and look great, you will want to incorporate plenty of protein into your diet. Make sure that the protein you consume is lean protein, so that you are not clogging your arteries and slowing your weight loss progress by including a lot of unnecessary fat and calories. Lean protein is much healthier for you, and will result in much faster weight loss, as well.

 

5 – Choose a personal trainer who has a lot of experience with helping other men who have needed to lose significant amounts of weight. Experience is the best teacher, so if you choose a personal trainer who has been down this road successfully many times before, you will have a much greater chance of them leading you down the path to health and fitness with the least amount of bumps in the road possible.

 

Hopefully, these weight loss tips for men have given you some ideas of techniques you can incorporate into your fitness journey to not only make it go faster, but to improve your health overall and make your nutritional plan workouts more effective.

Welcome to Generation XL

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

The New Generation “XL”

 

First we had the Baby Boomers, then we had Generation “X” and then Generation “Y”.

Now we have Generation “XL” – as in Extra Large.

It is sad, but true – this generation is now referred to as the “Extra Large” generation because close to 30% of children and teens in the US and other developed countries around the world are obese. Not overweight, but obese. Almost 42% are overweight. That’s double the percentage of 1980.

 

We are being socialized and hypnotized that being overweight is “okay” or “normal” and that it is “abnormal” not to be carrying around some extra weight.

 

 

The media and marketing companies are doing their best to “normalize” this condition. Clothing companies make larger and larger size cloths.  Fast food restaurants are offering “supersized” meals. Now they even have “plus size” models. I am sure we all agree that that “super skinny” models are not normal, but trying to convince us that “plus size” (read overweight) models are normal is another dangerous trend.

 

If we keep normalizing overweight and accepting it as a way of life, soon 90% of the population will be fat and the hospitals will be filled with fat, sick people with heart attacks and diabetes.  No matter how we try to normalize it, it is not NATURAL to be overweight…  Period!

 

Like It or Not – You Are Judged By Your Weight

Here is another reality check. There is a world of research that clearly indicates you will be judged personally and professionally by how much you weigh. Your first impression is recorded and used as a yardstick for all future communication by those whom you meet.

It isn’t fair, but it’s true, people who are overweight communicate that they don’t care about themselves, they are lazy and not in control of their life. On the other hand, regardless of how overweight the rest of the population becomes, people who are not overweight are given preferential treatment whether it comes to business or personal relationships.

 

While we both know it’s not fair……

  • People who are not overweight have all the advantages.
  • They get the attention.
  • They get the looks.
  • They have more opportunities.
  • They receive preferential treatment.
  • They are more desirable to the opposite sex.
  • And they are happier and healthier.
  • You Can Be One of These People

 

Right now you’re probably getting that “Ah Ha!” feeling.

 

That’s because you understand something at a different level.  You now know the real reason why every attempt you have made at releasing all that excess weight has failed.

 

Your Unconscious mind has been RESISTING your Conscious mind’s desire to get rid of the weight PERMANENTLY.  Said another way……

 

You Have Been Using the WRONG MIND to Resolve Your Weight Problem

You have tried to eliminate the excess weight using your Conscious Mind but your Unconscious Mind has been running the show.

 

So what’s the solution? I thought you’d never ask…

 

I have found the fastest and most effective way to resolve any weight or body shape problem is through hypnosis.

Evidence That Hypnosis Can Help You Eliminate Your Excess Weight

Numerous clinical studies have proven that hypnosis is amazingly effective in helping people reduce or eliminate their weight issues.

 

The Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology stated: “…weight loss reported in the five studies indicates that hypnosis can more than double the effects” of traditional weight loss approaches.

 

 

The International Journal of Eating Disorders reported: “Hypnosis is effective even in small doses. After three months, test subjects who had used hypnosis techniques just once had lost nearly twice as much weight as a control group.”

 

 

In a 9-week study of two weight management groups (one using hypnosis and one not using hypnosis), the hypnosis group continued to get results in the two-year follow-up, while the non-hypnosis group showed no further results (Journal of Clinical Psychology, 1995). In a study of 60 women separated into hypnosis versus non-hypnosis groups, the groups using hypnosis lost an average of 17 pounds, while the non-hypnosis group lost an average of only .5 pounds (Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1986).

 

 

“Hypnosis can help. A growing body of research supports the ancient practice as an effective tool in the treatment if a variety of problems from anxiety, weight loss to chronic pain.”

 

 

“Hypnosis can help adults patients control other forms of pain, relieve gastrointestinal problems stimulate weight loss, clear up skin problems and accelerate healing of bone fractures and surgical wounds”

“Hypnosis has gained credibility in the past five years because research using the latest brain imaging technology Studies show hypnosis can help to treat a multitude of disorders”.

Inner Health Weight Release Program

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

Stop looking at the scales! Weight release is about muscle tone and inches… not weight!

We’ve all been there… trapped in the struggle of attempting to release that excess body fat in any way possible. You’ve tried diets, fasts and workout routines. But, nothing ever seems to work! Why is it so difficult to get rid of extra weight?

 

Even when you get rid of some, it always seems to come right back… and usually it comes back worse than before and you end up being heavier. Perhaps you gave in and ate something you shouldn’t have; you then beat yourself up and decided it’s not going to work for you… so just give up.

 

This can be disheartening and can seriously affect your self-esteem leaving you feeling ashamed and unworthy especially after working so hard to get the body you want. And when you don’t feel good in your own body, it’s going to impact your mood and overall well-being.

 

All you really want is to love the skin you’re in, to feel beautiful, confident, and have more energy to do the things that make you happy.

 

So what is it that’s holding you back?

 

Well maybe it has NOTHING to do with diet or exercise!

Your mental and emotional status is going to have a significant influence on how you approach your weight release program. Even the words we speak or think about could have a dramatic effect on our physical and emotional well being.

 

Think about the word “loss” in “weight loss”. What do we do when we lose something… we try to find it don’t we? What we really want to do is release the excess weight… get rid of it forever… not just lose it to find again later.

 

Now that might seem a little pedantic but understand this… words are powerful… and what we say to ourselves every day makes a huge difference whether you are aware of it or not.

 

So for starters let’s get rid of the word “loss” when we talk about weight, we do not want to lose anything, we want to get rid of it… we want to release it forever!

 

Now let’s look at the word “diet”. When we talk about dieting we think about depriving ourselves of something and what happens when you are told you can’t have something? That’s right, we crave it even more. So we don’t want to “diet” we just want to eat better. And notice that “eating better” doesn’t conjure up depravation; it just means putting more of the good stuff in.

 

Another reason people go on a “diet” it is often to please someone else, our partner, our friends or peers. This is particularly prevalent in relationships… where the fear that your excess weight may cause your partner to not be interested in you anymore, perhaps they are not paying as much attention to you as before or, perhaps you fear they might stray.

 

But the most important thing about weight release is that you do it for YOU… it’s got to be personal… to make YOU feel healthier… to get more energy for YOUR day… to make YOU feel more attractive… and while it’s nice to get external notice from others… if you want your weight release to be sustainable and permanent… you have to realise that it’s not about other people and their opinions… it’s about YOU… and how you feel about YOU… it’s an internal conversation… and that’s your motivation… make it about YOU!

 

Another big influence over your health and weight release goals… and one you may not have been paying enough attention to… is STRESS! Leading a high stress lifestyle is easily one of the biggest issues that will… make no mistake about it… take a huge toll on your overall well-being.

Are you sick and tired of……

 

  • Panicking at the thought of wearing a bathing suit or tight jeans?
  • Huffing and puffing when you walk?
  • Trying to find clothes to hide those bulging body parts?
  • Not wanting to have your picture taken?
  • Being tired all the time?
  • Avoiding intimate relationships?
  • Looking in the mirror and seeing yourself fat and out of shape?
  • Feeling like your weight is out of control?

 

My guess is that you have probably tried every imaginable diet, weight loss program, pill, shake, meal replacement, starvation method and exercise gadget on the market to lose weight…and failed. You’ve become discouraged and frustrated. At some point you may have even considered liposuction and gastric bypass surgery.

 

You are possibly reading this because you have tried everything possible to PERMANENTLY lose weight and nothing has worked! If you have been programmed to believe that diets, pills, shakes, meal replacement, rigorous exercise and willpower are the only ways to lose weight, it’s no wonder you feel frustrated.

 

The good news is your search is over and you can finally get the body you deserve…

My name is Paul Holcroft. I am an Australian and internationally certified hypnotherapist, uncommon psychotherapist, and avid health researcher and have helped and guided men and women of all ages through difficult times. Life doesn’t have to be an uphill battle… you CAN get back into the flow of life… and you CAN win the weight release battle.

 

So where do we begin?

 

Step One: Eliminate the Stress

This is the one that most people do not even think of but is the one that you need to deal with first.

 

Constant stress releases dangerous toxins into your body and is now being recognised as a major contributor inflammation and disease in the body.

 

Seriously, emotional blockages are real and are normally caused by constant ongoing stress, or by being involved in or witnessing a traumatic event, which raise Cortisol levels and release toxins into your system.

 

When you body becomes over-loaded with toxins and cannot process them fast enough, it then tries to protect your vital organs from these deadly toxins by encompassing them with fat cells and storing them somewhere on your body to deal with them later. Unfortunately if we are constantly under stress… relationship stress, family stress, workplace stress and environmental stresses… our bodies never get the time to process the toxins these stresses are creating within us.

 

And the most common ways these emotional blockages show up in the body is in weight gain or pain… or both! This could be the main contributing factor that is preventing you from attaining your weight release goals.

 

These emotional blockages can also be born out of ideas you’ve adopted through the media, your friends, and your own personal experience. We are bombarded with negative information on a daily basis through news reports and social media, and this takes a toll on our stress levels.

 

Stress is something that can and will creep up on you without you even noticing it and, if we don’t do something about it, it begins to dominate and control your life, and eventually you’ll find yourself in a place where you are just too overwhelmed to do anything about it. Your body just begins to shut down and burnout (think chronic fatigue) or worse… disease strikes. Stress is something you need to be consistently monitoring and making sure that you are not letting slip out of control.

 

So how do we reduce the stress in our lives?

 

When starting their weight release program, most people just start rigorous workout regimes like boot camp, or go on some new fancy diet program. But unless you get rid of the stress first, you are going to find it an uphill battle.

 

The first step is to figure out what is causing the stress and then take steps to stop it or reduce it from dramatically influencing you.

Look at the way that you think about yourself and the world. Really look deeply. You have an internal road map telling you where you are going and what you are attracting in your life. It’s possible your particular map is currently NOT going in the direction you want… and this creates low self-esteem. It’s been scientifically proven that your thoughts literally create your reality. We learned this fact through quantum physics and this applies to everything, including weight release.

 

The possible reason that you cannot release the weight is because you’ve got an idea deep in your unconscious mind telling you over and over again that you can’t have what you want! Your internal belief coupled with strong emotion is what creates what shows up in your life, and it’s all happening under the surface of your conscious mind.

 

The current reality you have been creating for yourself may actually be holding you back from weight release success. Not because you can’t have what you want, simply because you’re not aware of your underlying beliefs about weight release in your unconscious mind. And whether you believe it or not, your unconscious mind runs the show. It is what keeps you breathing, your heart pumping, and your blood flowing all without you being necessarily consciously aware.

 

And your unconscious mind ultimately dictates exactly your body shape and what you weigh…down to the kilo!

 

The reason for this is your unconscious mind is controlled by emotion, not logic. It is where your emotions are stored… and emotions are the fuel that motivates us.

 

Logically or consciously you may want to get rid of the excess weight, but on an emotional level your unconscious is programmed to keep the weight on. And even if you “lose” the weight, you will gain it back… and sometimes more than you had originally!

 

Over 95% of all weight problems are emotionally driven. What this means is your inability to control your weight may have nothing to do with eating too much food, eating the wrong foods or not wanting to do any type exercise. All of these are the effect, not the cause of your weight problem.

 

People are not overweight because they overeat. They overeat because of something else… an emotional trigger or blockages in their unconscious mind… and that is the key to bringing you back to your ideal body shape and weight.

 

You may not be aware of it consciously, but at some emotional level you have made the association that being overweight makes you feel safe, secure, protected, loved, accepted, rewarded and comfortable or will reduce stress and boredom. In some way your current weight is emotionally driven.

 

 

THE GOOD NEWS is releasing the excess weight is effortless when you get your unconscious emotional mind to agree with your conscious desires. And you do this by eliminating the dysfunctional beliefs, habits and learned patterns that are getting in your way. Once you remove the emotional cause, weight release will be effortless and permanent.

 

 

 

Hypnotherapy is a powerful way to identify and remove stress and emotional blockages from the body. A regular hypnotherapy session, say once a month, will do wonders for your wellbeing and positive mindset.

 

Step Two: Fill the Nutritional Gaps

To succeed in any weight release program you will need to make sure your body’s nutritional needs are met. Your body needs vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, pre and probiotics, and antioxidants to prevent cravings and the onset of mood swings and fatigue.

Unfortunately, due to lack of nutrients in our overused soils, we are often not getting adequate vitamins, minerals and other nutrients from our whole foods, especially those purchased from supermarkets, so we need to supplement. But we need to supplement with quality supplements and unfortunately many of the cheap supplements readily available do not provide us with the quality or quantity our bodies require… most cheap supplements will have no more than about an 8% absorption rate hence the term expensive pee!

 

The other issue here is none of us want to be running around buying and consuming 10-20 different tablets a day. What is needed is a simple broad spectrum supplement source that will give our bodies what it requires in an easy format. Using high-quality pharmaceutical grade supplements (over 90% absorption rate) will ensure your body and cell microbiota get the nutritional top-ups they need. Your body will safely absorb what it needs and eliminates what is not needed.

 

Step Three: Healthy Diet

Many times it’s more about what you stop putting in your mouth than can make a huge difference. You can take huge steps toward your ideal weight and body shape by eliminating the following foods;

 

  • All dairy products except for pure organic butter (a good fat) from grass feed pasture raised animals only.
  • All products containing gluten (read the labels on all packaged foods).
  • All wheat products (most of it is genetically modified now anyway) especially breakfast cereals which most contain your number one enemy… sugar!
  • Remove all refined sugars from your diet. This is a biggie because we are all addicted to it… and its poisoning us inside. Tip: Try eliminating sugar one step at a time to lower the detox withdrawal symptoms.
  • All soda (soft drinks) and energy drinks as they all contain sugar and other deadly chemicals and ingredients.

Add the following to your diet:

  • Fresh organic fruit and vegetables on a daily basis.
  • Eat fish at least twice a week (think omega 3’s) but avoid larger fish like tuna, swordfish, and flake because of possible high mercury content.
  • If you eat red meat make sure it is grass-feed (not grain-fed) and pasture-raised. Serving size should be no bigger than the palm of your hand, and no more than 3 times a week.
  • Make sure your white meats like chicken and turkeys are organic free-range birds (once again not grain fed). Eggs too should be from free-range birds (not caged or grain-fed).
  • Add good saturated fats like pure organic butter from grass-fed animals, coconut flesh and organic cold-pressed coconut oil and avocados.
  • Supplement your diet with high-quality nutritional supplements, preferably pharmaceutical grade supplements because of purity and higher uptake (absorption rate).
  • Drink at least 2-3 litres of fresh clean filtered water per day to help flush toxins from your body.

 

Step Four: Exercise Regularly

Participate in physical activities you enjoy like going for a beach or forest walk with a friend or group or going window shopping with your friend rather than sitting and having coffee. How about doing an outdoor activity like kayaking, paddle-boarding or going for a bike ride with your kids or a group of friends, or what about enjoying the sunlight working in the garden rather than staying indoors watching TV. 15 minutes of direct sunlight a day will also keep your vitamin D levels up.

 

If you’re active all day long, the total calorie burning benefits from all this activity are going to total up to far more than a gym workout… and probably more fun. But if you are stuck at work indoors or in an office then an effective exercise program outside work hours is for you but don’t overdo it. Over-exercising will increase stress levels in your body and can lead to an exercise disorder (think gym junkies).

Taking a regular walk on the beach, through a forest or somewhere else in nature, barefooted if possible to ground you to the earth, is another way excellent way to de-stress your body. If you walk on early in the morning just before the sun rises, the earth will energise your body, if you do it early evening around sunset, the earth will drain the stress out of your body. Try it, it works!

 

Having sex is another exercise which will do wonders for your stress levels. Did you know when you orgasm, you’ll release a flood of dopamine into your system, which makes sex one of the most powerful stress-relievers out there.

 

But remember as you age and your testosterone levels drop you may also notice this has a serious impact on your libido levels and decrease your desire in sexual activity and in turn you lose the feel-good benefits that sexual activity presents. As previously mentioned, maintaining your vitamin, mineral, and amino acid levels is essential to keep the libido alive!

 

Other Steps You Can Take on Your Journey to Your Perfect Weight and Body Shape

 

Say goodbye to crazy diets!  

90% of the time, dieting gets you nowhere. I’m sure you’ve tried it yourself not once, not twice, but multiple times… and probably multiple different diets. The problem is most people don’t know that dieting has almost nothing to do with the reason that they cannot release weight. Diets are a great for a healthier lifestyle but when it comes to weight release, the best they tend to do is offer a quick fix.

 

I’m sure you’ve noticed that diets do not have lasting results. Why? It’s not the diet that doesn’t work. It will work for some time, but soon enough you’ll be back in the headspace of feeling like it is not working enough. Diets are a temporary fix.

Be patient

When we don’t see results fast enough or do not achieve the results we had hoped for, we tend to feel disillusioned and unconsciously give up before we have given time for our bodies to adjust. We are all different and some of us will take longer to reach our desired body shape than others.

 

Don’t judge your results by the results others are getting, especially those we are exercising with. A slow metabolic rate is one of the primary reasons why many women struggle so immensely to lose the fat they desire and this is often brought about from years and years of yo-yo dieting beforehand. We all have different metabolisms and some may take longer than others to achieve their desired body shape but if you stick to it… the results will come.

 

Stop the Blame Game…

Blaming your problems on others, your current circumstances, or anything at all is a huge factor in your weight and body shape struggle. When you don’t accept any kind of responsibility for where you are and who you are, you’ve labelled yourself as the victim… as powerless. How are you ever supposed to get out of a tough situation, or find a solution if you have no power?

 

Taking responsibility for yourself, your life, your choices, and your outcomes, puts you in the driver’s seat. And here’s the harsh truth! When you are able to accept YOUR part in every situation however bad it may have been, or may still be… when you take that responsibility for YOUR part in it, you put yourself back in the driver’s seat… in a position to change any situation. This may sound unfair, but in reality it’s a positive, good fact. If you have that power, you will find the solution. This is the secret solution to absolutely EVERYTHING!

 

Once you take responsibility for your weight release mishaps, you can take steps to turn things around. Now this doesn’t mean it’s time to get mad at yourself, that’s not at all what I’m talking about here and I don’t want you to let the pendulum swing too hard in your own direction.  I’m talking about taking an open, fair look at the part YOU play in your life with no judgments. We ALL have played the blame game, I included, and it is a familiar trap. The point here is to give yourself the gift of responsibility, because with that gift you are finally free!

 

With your new found power you have opened the floodgates to endless possibilities, you are no longer at the whim of others and know the truth, you and ONLY YOU can make this happen and YOU CAN. Plus it doesn’t have to be hard and struggle filled, with fad diets and killer workouts. It’s as easy as taking control of your unconscious emotional mind.

Two Powerful Body Fat Shredding Supplements

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

The main ingredients in many of the new body fat-shredding supplements currently being sold in the marketplace are L-Citrulline and L-Arginine.

 

L-Citrulline is a substance called a non-essential amino acid. Your kidneys change L-Citrulline into another amino acid called L-Arginine and a chemical called nitric oxide. These compounds are important to your heart and blood vessel health. They may also boost your immune system. The reason this is added to the supplement formula is that it takes longer to process so you have delayed release.

 

L-Citrulline Natural Food Sources: watermelon (richest source), other melons, cucumbers, onions, garlic and chick peas.

 

L-Arginine is an amino acid obtained from the diet and is necessary for the body to make proteins. It is converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow. L-Arginine also stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body.

 

L-Arginine Natural Food Sources: turkey (richest source), chicken, pork, pumpkin Seeds, walnuts, spirulina (seaweed), wheat germ, quinoa, oats and wheat cereals.

 

Other known nutrients and supplements regularly used for weight management…

Thermogenesis and Weight Loss

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Thermogenesis is a metabolic process during which your body burns calories to produce heat natural inducing weight release.  Several factors induce thermogenesis in your body including exercise, diet and environmental temperature… but did you know thermogenesis can also be kick-started by nutritional supplements?

 

Thermogenesis can promote natural weight loss because it increases your body’s calorie burn so excess fat is used as energy rather than stored.

 

Exercise

During exercise, your muscle cells burn calories in order to provide energy for muscle contraction. Although most of the energy goes to propel the contraction, considerable amount of the energy is “lost” as heat. This thermogenic process is the reason your body temperature rises during exercise and why you begin to sweat. The harder you exercise, the more energy is wasted as heat. Although the major energy-burning effect of exercise is still the actual muscle contraction, you do burn considerable amount of calories as heat and the more calories you burn, the more weight you can lose.

 

Diet

Thermogenic substances are naturally present in several food items. Caffeine in coffee (particularly green coffee), tea and chocolate, catechins in green, white and oolong tea, and capsaicin in red chilli peppers can promote weight release by temporarily increasing thermogenesis in your body. A study published in the International Journal of Obesity in 2005 reports that eating these thermogenic ingredients can boost your metabolism by 4 percent to 5 percent and fat burning by 10 percent to 16 percent.

 

Environment

Your body temperature is strictly regulated by the hypothalamus in your brain. This internal “thermostat” gets signals from receptors around your body that detect body temperature. When your body temperature begins to drop, for example in response to cold temperatures, your hypothalamus sends a signal to your muscles to contract. These muscle contractions, or shivering, help produce heat and warm your body. Thus, going to a cold climate can boost your metabolism through thermogenesis.

Appetite

Interestingly enough, one of the consequences of thermogenesis is a loss of appetite. If I’m not as hungry, I’m not going to eat as much. The same thing for exercise; when the thermostat is turned up, the metabolism is up, and I’ll feel more energy. So, when people feel they have more energy, they will be able to do more, which will also help them to utilize fat.

 

The brown fat cell is unique in its mitochondria. The mitochondrion is the energy source, or power plant. In the brown fat cell, the unique mitochondrion helps it create energy. The brown fat cell is a real energy burner and really burns heat. Part of the problem of human obesity has very little to do with eating habits as much as it does with brown fat cell deterioration.

 

They have and are now conducting studies on human obesity. They are speculating that part of the problem with human obesity lies in the amount of adipose tissue activity. They’ve done studies with people as far as foods eaten and energy produced in lean and obese people and has found a difference in the amount of brown fat activity. Post-obese people still have a deficiency in the brown fat system. So it must either be rebuilt or they must always be careful about their diet.

Nutritional Supplementation

Nutritional supplements too can help with your weight release goals. Some of the most powerful weight loss supplements include: ForsLean®95, Chlorogenic Acid (Green Coffee Bean Extract), Satiereal™, Guarana, Green Tea, White Willow Bark, Beta Hydroxybutyrate, Co-Q10, Cosmoperine®, L-Arginine, and Limonene.

We recommend DUO BURN

Simple 30-Day Weight Loss Plan

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Simple 30-Day Weight Loss Plan

Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to go on a drastic diet plan, participate in a gruelling “boot camp” exercise program of spend hours in the gym to lose weight. Just by making some simple changes in what and how you eat can make a dramatic difference in your weight loss goal.

 

Here are some simple steps to weight loss, which if adhered to, will make a difference. The change will not be instantaneous but positive results will show up in only a matter of weeks. What you remove from your eating pattern is just as important as what you put in.

 

Things to Remove from Your Diet

Try removing these from your diet for just 30-days and you will be amazed with difference it will make not only to your weight loss plan, but also to your energy levels and general well-being. It will take some commitment on your part but it WILL be worth it… so just do it!

 

  1. Eliminate all dairy products. Yes this means milk too. Try coconut or nut milk like almond milk instead and, get the one without sugar!
  2. Eliminate sugar! Check the labels as a lot of manufacturers sneak refined sugar into their products under a multitude of different names… they are your weight loss enemy.
  3. Remove wheat products from your daily intake and that includes all wheat cereals and breads. Get non-wheat gluten-free breads from your local health food store.
  4. Eliminate Fast Foods and Processed Foods. This includes processed meats, burgers, pizzas and other take-away food (yes we know they are convenient but are usually loaded with hidden sugars or multitude of other additives detrimental to your weight loss goal).
  5. Cut down your meat intake and increase your vegetables and fruit consumption. If you are a meat eater, try eating smaller portions (no bigger than the palm of your hand) and cut it down to only three times a week.
  6. Supplement with Pharmaceutical-Grade Nutritional Supplements containing vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, pre and probiotics, and antioxidants.

 

Yes you still have to make some smart food choices and source and eat as much fresh organic wholefoods as you can but unfortunately for most people this is not always easy to do and, due to poor modern diet choices of fast foods, processed and packaged foods, refined GMO flours, and sugary foods and drinks, many people are living in persistent inflammation.

When you add the factor of modern farming practices of over-farming (sometimes 3 crops a year), fertilizers, the use of pesticides and herbicides, and planting fast-growing GMO crops, the soils of the world, particularly in the western world, are becoming more and more nutrient deficient. We are no longer getting the nutrient dense food that our forefathers and mothers enjoyed.

Remember! We only want you to try this for 30-days and see the difference… then you can decide whether you want to continue.

 

Things to Add to Your Diet

Here are some very powerful weight loss foods you can add to your diet to help accelerate your weight loss strategy.

 

Coconut Oil: You have been lied to… all fats are not bad for you. Some interesting studies recently on the relationship between coconut oil and how it can affect your body fat… These findings may surprise you!

 

The randomised, double-blind, clinical trial involved 40 women aged 20–40 years group who received daily dietary supplements comprising 30 ml (about 2 tablespoons) of either soy bean oil or coconut oil over a 12-week period.

 

The results demonstrated that the group that ate the coconut oil had a decrease in abdominal fat, while the soybean oil group actually showed a slight increase in belly fat.

 

It appears that dietetic supplementation with coconut oil does not cause dyslipidemia (an abnormal amount of lipids (e.g. cholesterol and/or fat) in the blood) and seems to promote a reduction in abdominal obesity.

 

Other studies relative to medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in “The Journal of Nutrition” showed that diets rich in fats such as those found in coconut oil prompted a boost in metabolism, increase in energy, decrease in food consumption, reduced body weight and lower body fat mass.

 

These studies seem to support including 2 tablespoons of coconut oil into your diet on a daily basis. However, try to avoid highly processed commercial oils and instead opt for pure organic cold-pressed virgin coconut oil, which is readily available from health food stores.

 

Coconut oil can be added to your porridge or smoothies in the morning, used on salads in the warmer months, and even used as effective cooking oil. If the smell or taste puts you off, look for an odourless and tasteless variety. Coconuts grown in different regions have different tastes and odours.

 

Maca Root Powder: This powerful food supplement not only burns fat cells for energy, but also balances hormones, enhances your mood (and we all know our moods trigger eating binges), increases your energy levels (burns fat cells for energy), and is rich in vitamin B, vitamin C, and vitamin E as well as providing plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, and amino acids.

 

Maca truly is a superfood and we prefer Maca Explode, a concentrated form of dried Maca juice extracted from the root. Watch out though as it is very powerful and you only need about ½tsp of Maca Explode compared to 2 desert spoons of regular Maca. Maca is also widely used as a sexual stimulant for both men and women and can increase libido, endurance and fertility.

 

Be careful with this superfood and do not take in large doses as it can cause goitres (enlargement of the thyroid glands) when consumed in high volume in combination with a diet low in iodine. Over use may also cause a rise in blood pressure. If you suffer from high blood pressure, consult your physician before taking Maca. If you are pregnant or lactating, you should avoid taking Maca.

 

Regular Exercise: Keeping your body active is vital not only for weight loss but for general health and well being. It generates energy and keeps you regular. Now we are not talking about hours in the gym or jogging or running for kilometres, but some simple exercises that are easy to do and won’t eat into your budget. For example try these:

 

Walking

Go for a 30-60 minute walk every day preferably somewhere serene like along the beach, in a forest or rainforest, or a park where you can be in touch with nature’s healing powers (grounding). If you can, combine your walk with some grounding to the earth’s healing energy by walking barefoot on the sand, grass, dirt, or even concrete (not asphalt) as it is conductive of the earth’s energy. “Grounding” studies are showing some amazing results in pain relief and mood levels of subjects participating in “grounding” exercise.

 

Simple Abdominal Exercise

This is a VERY simple exercise that you can do anytime, anywhere to help get a flatter stomach over time. This specific exercise does NOT increase fat burning, but it CAN help to flatten your stomach by strengthening your deeper abdominal muscles and hence “pulling in” a lazy stomach (beer belly).

 

This simple exercise is called ab-vacuums and can be done anytime, anywhere, on the train, on the bus, driving to work, during your lunch break, even while watching television.

 

You can do them standing, seated (such as in a car), kneeling in a four-point position, or even lying flat on the floor. I prefer them seated or standing.

 

The movement is as simple as pulling your belly button in as far as you can by imagining you’re trying to touch your belly button to your spine and holding for 10-20 seconds at a time.

 

Start by inhaling deeply. Then, as you exhale, start pulling the belly button in towards the spine and hold it there for 10-20 seconds while just taking short breaths. Repeat for several of these 10-20 second holds, perhaps 5-10x if you have enough time while in the car. But even just repeating 3-4x every time you’re driving somewhere can really add up over time and give you the benefit of a flatter belly!

 

Get in the habit of doing this at least 4-5 days per week while driving somewhere and you may find that this helps to flatten your stomach more by strengthening the transversus abdominis muscle (the deep abdominal muscles beneath the rectus abdominis) and they even help to strengthen your core and support a healthy back!

 

Other Types of Exercise

Did you know that simple exercises like calf muscle lifts can also help you lose abdominal and thigh fat? Any type of exercise no matter help simple, with help you burn fat but resistance training is best of all. Resistance training involves maximum resistance in short routines. 10-15 repetitions with maximum weight resistance on different muscle groups will actually produce better and faster results than an hour long aerobics or “boot camp” circuit.

 

The key is recovery time for the muscles to repair and prepare for the next session. Each muscle group should have a 10-day recovery period to allow the muscle to repair and prepare. This doesn’t mean you only exercise every 10 days, you just work different muscle groups on different days and give the whole body two days rest in between each workout session.
