How to Lose Weight: You’re Here for a Bigger Purpose

You’re Here for a Bigger Purpose – It Starts with Your Health – Diamonds and Pearls Networking Group on Facebook!

3 Things that give you the POWER to Change for Good!!

by Kamille Dawn Tirzah MS CPT, NSC.

1. Make a list of WHY YOU WANT TO CHANGE

Examples: Live Longer, better health, disease free, reduce medications or off of medications, have children, be more employable, lower health care costs, lower insurance rates, more energy, more attractive, more desirable for to the opposite sex, more confidence, etc.

When you have reasons that are meaningful to you, you will be motivated to change. It’s not will power that is the driving force for changing your body and changing your health it’s what is your inner motivation. Your motivating factors will be the foundation for commitment. Without commitment you will not reach your goal.

2. Decide what you want in every area of life:

Finance
Health and fitness
Relationships
Career
Spiritual
Education
Hobbies
Material Things
Dreams

When you realize that your desires in life will require you to be in the best health possible, this will motivate you more than any quick short-term goal. Losing weight or getting more fit for an event is great, but what happens after the event? Then what? You always have to have goals to work toward. We are either progressing or degreasing.

3. Surround yourself with a supportive team

Friend/Buddy
Health Coach
Trainer
Health Professional

Research has shown that people who take a team/group approach to changing their health have an 80% better change of reaching their goals as compared to those who do it alone. Why? It’s because of accountability but most importantly, it the collective energy or ‘like’ energy that is very empowering. It gives you strength when you feel discouraged or when change isn’t happening fast enough. You will have resources from professionals and other people like you who are going through the same struggle.

The Biggest Loser…a Scam?

Biggestloser

Biggest Loser contestant once a size 4.

Drugs, forced starving, 8-hour trainings!!?? Is this the REAL Biggest Loser Show? Well it seems some of the contestants are spilling the beans and telling the real behind-the-scene horrors that really happened on one of America’s most viewed TV programs.

The Biggest Loser was never a show I felt compelled to watch more than once. Obese at one time myself, and losing over 100 pounds naturally through a mind, body, spirit approach, I knew the show didn’t promote healthy weight loss and was ridged for sensationalism only.

I mean, why else would you train people until they vomit on national TV, have them doing impossible and dangerous workouts causing embarrassment and humiliation just to get high TV ratings?

In addition, they never focused on real fat loss, just weight loss like many nutritionist, physicians, weight loss gurus, and others toting a book or program for losing weight within the multibillion dollar industry.

That’s when I realized that what I had learned in my career as a medical weight loss specialist and coach for physicians and corporations in North America is what real weight loss is about. It consists of these three things:

  1. Losing fat weight only and sparing your valuable lean body mass, which includes your bone, muscle, and valuable organ tissue.
  2. Following an individually designed nutrition plan that is based on your body composition that also takes in consideration your body type, shape, and metabolism instead of a scripted ‘cookie-cutter’ diet plan.
  3. Being coached from a professional that knows the scientific mind, body, spirit modalities and strategies that will transform your mind and change your habits for good.

When the mind is changed along with the correct nutrition and exercise designed for you as an individual, transformation is possible and lasting.

It is said that all the Biggest Loser contestants have gained the weight back. When weight loss isn’t tied to a bigger purpose, why should anyone keep it off? In addition, the contestants are saying that the process used by the trainers and producers of the show, destroyed their metabolism. It’s not hard to do when a person is not getting proper nutrition and only focusing on fast weight loss.

I’ve been able to get people to lose fat fairly quickly, however, if a person doesn’t do the mental work, they will only gain it back. And their health is my first priority. Here are my average fat loss results:

 

Coach Kam’s Weight Loss (Fat Loss) Results

C.C. lost 4.5 pounds in 3 days, P.T. lost 30.1 pounds in 30 days, W.C lost 50 pounds in 60 days, S.O. lost 12.5 pounds in 10 days, P.C. lost 27 pounds in 30 days, S.S. lost 10 pounds in 18 days, G.G. lost 20 pounds in 90 days, C. G. lost 17 pounds in 29 days, G. P. lost 24 pounds in 45 days, T.M. lost 8 pounds in 30 days, W.S. lost 45 pounds in 9 months, Y. J. lost 53 pounds in 8 months, B.V. lost 15 pounds in 4 months, H. H. lost 35 pounds in 30 days, M. P. lost 10 pounds in 30 days, T. B. lost 44 pounds in 4 months, P.G. lost 53 pounds in 7 months, L. S. lost 20 pounds in 3 months. *

 

So how did I get these results? I used a methodology that I compiled in a program I call the Lean Body Principles: Lose Fat Weight Fast! Secrets Your Doctor Didn’t Have Time to Learn and these great recipes. In this program you will discover:

 

  • How to customize and design your own nutrition plan based on what I call, “Your Body’s Blueprint”.
  • Learn how to know if you are losing fat or muscle or both! No more guessing ever again.
  • Learn what foods to eat to get maximum fat loss without giving up some of the foods you love.
  • Identify the type of exercise that works best for your body type and shape and which ones will help you reach your goal faster.
  • You will learn how to calculate the exact time frame it will take you to lose excess ugly body fat for good!
  • You’ll learn how to stay motivated throughout your journey using mental and emotional strategies so you can embrace and create the NEW YOU faster than ever!
  • You will learn how to change your mind so that you are not a slave to food cravings, but food is actually working for you!
  • And much, much, more!

I know how it feels to be obese, depressed, not living life to the fullest and feeling the disappointment of dreams deferred. After trying numerous diets and exercise programs that didn’t work for me, I finally took a different approach. I got coaching and training from professional celebrity trainer, Victoria Johnson.

After losing over 100 pounds, I took the knowledge I learned from my celebrity trainer, the knowledge I had from my formal college degrees in behavior science, nutrition and fitness, along with the experience and knowledge I learned from some of the top physicians and surgeons in the medical industry and designed a program that highlights secrets no one is using.

When you think about it, the average 30-50 year old has illnesses and conditions of those who are in their senior years. And it starts from all the bad eating habits developed when people are in their 20s and from being overweight or obese.

When my clients follow my program they get results. The most important thing when losing fat (weight) is to focus not only on losing weight, but to focus on your health. I never want to compromise someone’s immune system therefore, it’s important for me to make sure the nutrition program improves the overall health of a person not just that they drop weight.

That’s why for a short period of time, I’m giving away a free e-book giving away great weight loss plan including some of the same recipes I designed for my clients and patients that got them the amazing results I shared with you earlier!

The Law of Attraction and How I Lost 100 Pounds…& People Mag Cover

It’s been several years since I lost 100 pounds and landed on the cover of People Magazine, interviewed by Robin Roberts of Good Morning America and highlighted on Entertainment Tonight for this accomplishment.

When looking back, I really can say that it was truly due to prayer and the Law of Attraction! But, I didn’t know what I was doing back then. I just remember being at a point where all of my ‘being’ and ‘wanting’ and ‘desiring’ was pin-pointed toward what I wanted and it seemed as if that ‘wanting’ was so powerful, like a big magnetizing ball of energy fueled with tremendous feeling, intensity, and love for want I felt was my only solution, is when the powers that be decided to answer my intention.

After I lost the weight, people who hadn’t seen me for a while would stop me at the most inconvenient times and ask me how I did it. They would ask me while standing in line at the grocery store, or while I was shopping in TJ Max, or in line at the bank.

I remember thinking that just saying I ate healthy and worked out was not really the case. What transpired over a 3 year period could not be summed up so simply. I mean think about it. The mind-set of a 240 pound person to the mind-set of a 132 pound person was totally different and it was the journey of the mind that was really the issue and where all the transformation happened.

I mean, if you think about it. If it was as easy as eating right and working out, then everyone could do it. If it was that easy, then there wouldn’t be thousands of weight loss books on the market and the weight loss industry would not a multi-billion dollar industry now would it?

For this reason, I wrote, Fat Chick to Cover Model. It is a book explaining the journey and what I did exactly. The difference in my story as compared to others is that I lost it with the help of a celebrity trainer and through a process of Mind, Body, Spirit approach.

I’ve always been a spiritual person and I believe that when people try to attempt losing weight without using mental strategies or through a system of spiritual transformation, then the results will not happen for them.

People think that if they simply focus on what they are to eat and how they are to workout then the magic will happen and a new body will appear. But, that’s not the case. The body is very complex and how the body sheds excess weight varies due to several scientific factors.

After losing the weight and I slowing transmuted my career into the medical industry, working with some of the top physicians and surgeons in America and in corporate wellness, I was one of the only medical weight loss specialist with experience working with people of all ages and with every medical condition you can think of.

And through this experience, I gained the knowledge and scientific background to discover a couple of ‘missing links’ in weight loss that I feel, once disclosed, will change the world of weight loss forever.

It’s disclosed in an audio digital coaching 7-component coaching program called the Lean Body Principles: Lose Fat Fast! Secrets Your Doctor Didn’t Have Time to Learn. It’s based on 7 scientific secrets told through the eyes of a medical weight loss specialist. I fuse what is known in the fitness industry, what is known in the medical industry, what is known in nutrition and Ayurvedic eastern medicine to give a ‘full’ complete detailed system of how to lose weight. Actually, how to lose fat with no guessing, no struggle, as I help people discover their own unique personal weight loss code and how to change their mind to accomplish the goal of attaining their ideal body.

It’s not a gimmick, or fad, just scientific theories compiled to give a complete picture and process of how to do it, quickly, safely, and in a fun, cool, exciting way.

I give a little taste of how life for me is different in the video above. What I’m asking in return is your faith, your following, your subscribing and engaging with me so that you too can learn and duplicate my efforts and the efforts of hundreds of people I have helped through my program.

Here’s what one person had to say yesterday after I asked her what she has learned so far about Lean Body Principles:

“I never would have known how my body loses weight if it weren’t for this program. It’s amazing! I now know what numbers to focus on, how to eat and workout based on my unique body, how to think so I can master this game and I finally have the entire picture. More people should know about this.”

Here’s what another had to say recently…

“This is amazing! I never looked at weight loss like this before. More people should know this. I’m discovering my body’s weight loss pattern, what I need to eat based on my individual body, what I like to eat, and I’m not hungry or dieting. It does take focus, yet it’s like discovering a new me!”

“One of my issues is emotional eating and I never really understood it. In fact, I never ever sat back and understood or analyzed why I eat. Without judgement, I finally learned how to step out of myself and see what drives my eating decisions without judgement, but with new eyes and what I can do to change my actions. I’ve learned not to beat myself up every time I’m not perfect and that it isn’t perfection that will get me to my goal, but it’s about consistency. Loving myself and my body. Appreciation and gratitude. ”

It’s an amazing feeling to know my purpose and to have the honor of working with some amazing people. I attract people who are wanting more out of life, they desire a life change because their purpose is great just like mine and they either want to discover it or they know it and understand that in order to fulfill their calling, they must be at their peak in health both body and soul. It’s the Law of Attraction in action. It’s about deliberate creation.

Now, how I got on the cover of People Magazine is interesting. My goal was to be on the cover of Entrepreneur magazine. I wanted to be highlighted as a success in the weight loss industry because my life goals include being a success in health, wealth, love, happiness, and world contribution. I put a picture of my face on the cover and placed the cover of the magazine near my computer so that every time I worked at my computer (which is everyday) I would see it and it and hopefully attract the outcome I was seeking.

Instead of Entrepreneur Magazine, it was People Magazine that approached me, not me approaching them like the rest of the women who were highlighted in the magazine. And I believe it was sheer divine intervention that helped me land on the cover!

I still don’t have the Law of Attraction mastered yet. I’m thinking it’s because it’s not just the Law of Attraction that directs everything, but perhaps a combination of destiny and fate, not quite sure, but I’m still learning.

My next challenge: Rebuilding my body after 2 years of dealing with a spinal condition resulting in major surgery. Everyone can have set-backs, but if I wasn’t healthy, I would not have been able to recover as quickly as I have so far. I’m learning that my health is gift and something that is constant and every changing and to have ultimate health is something I have to earn or make sure I am ‘aligned’ with. It’s something I must respect, cultivate, honor, appreciate and be grateful for continuously. I get to decide. And I choose the best I can be.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Fat is Gone and She is HOT! Woman Isolated for Being Fat & Bullied Now an Internet Sensation!

tanya1

 

Like Tanya Rybakova, 25 years old who was 238 pounds (17 stone) who was bullied for years, I isolated myself from the world and buried my life in my work. I had no social life. I had no dating life. I was barely living. I wasn’t bullied, but I was living on the exhaust of other people oxygen. That’s pretty darn low.

Tanya

But, something happened to change my life forever and like me, Tanya lost over one hundred pounds, 112 pounds to be exact and looks simply amazing! All the people who bullied her have gotten in touch with her to call her beautiful.

 

What was Tanya’s secret? She got the help of a nutritionist and coach and a personal trainer. She’s had to have surgery to get rid of the excess weight. Her turning point was on prom night when her friends wouldn’t even talk to her.

 

She had tried diets in the past but wasn’t successful. Then, she realized she needed professional help. With the help of a nutritionist and trainer, she was able to lose the weight. It took her 3 years.

 

Her story is so similar to mine. My lose skin was my breasts and stomach. Like Tanya, I tried to live with it but, I almost felt more isolated with the lose skin then when I was heavy, so I decided to have breast augmentation. I still need a tummy tuck and will get one as soon as I can take the time from work to heal.

 

What I admire about Tanya is that she didn’t keep struggling. She realized she needed help and reached out to get it.

 

There are so many people who think they can do this journey by themselves. Some do. Yet, I know for a fact that they have more body fat than they realize because most people don’t know how to measure their body fat, they don’t know how much protein they need for their body and body type, nor do they know where they are in regards to their lean body mass.

 

Why is this important? Because if you lose too much muscle, your metabolism slows down, you are still ‘over-fat’ which is unhealthy, and if you do go back to eating poorly, you will gain back what you’ve lost plus more!

 

In addition, it more than about what you eat and how you move. It’s about changing your mindset. The next difficult hurdle after losing the weight is keeping it off. You have to learn how to go through every life difficulty and not use food as a stress reliever.

That’s the real test! In the meantime, Tanya is enjoying her thousands of followers and sharing her journey with the world! So What’s your excuse? What’s keeping you from doing the same thing?

Plus Size Model Scores a Home Run on Sports Illustrated!

SI

Thank God, the 1960 Twiggy days where stick-thin models dominate the model and fashion world have come to an end. The brain washing is finally over as the curvy voluptuous woman is celebrated!

 

Can you imagine? Finally being acknowledged by one of the top magazines in the world, Sports Illustrated, that different body types are not only fashion worthy, but also ‘showing-skin, sexy bikini, in your face’ worthy!

 

Rhonda Rousey, UFC MMA star, Ashley Graham, and Hailey Clauson have been unveiled as the cover stars for 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. It’s the first time that three very different body types have been represented by the publication in its annual bikini specials.

 

sportsillustratedwomen

Rousey said: ‘It’s a real honor being part of such a historic issue that really pays homage to different body types of women and not promoting just one cookie cutter image for every woman, but showing that the healthiest version of every body type is the sexiest version out there. ‘And I couldn’t be happier…I think I was just as honored to get it as to be there in person to watch Ashley’s reaction and Graham, at a size 14, is the first fuller-figured model to take one of the prized spots on the cover.

The magazine has taken a gigantic leap toward accepting and honoring different female body types: athletic, slender, and curvy.

One thing Sports Illustrated is holding strong to is the importance of health and fitness. All three women are strong, sexy, and healthy! How do you know? BMI and Fat% numbers, healthy glowing skin and hair and attention to ultimate beauty and self-care cannot be covered up, even with the most advanced photo-shop.

When I weighted over 250 pounds at 5’2’’ there was no way I was healthy, sexy, or showing that I loved myself or valued self-care.

1910452_1102106521705_5078124_n

Later, after losing the weight and getting on the cover of another world-renowned magazine, People, I showed the world that obesity could be conquered no matter how difficult the odds are

 

sportspersonalyear

As a sports fan of MMA (I believe I’m Rhonda Rousey’s number one fan. I even defended her in the last fight losing her UFC bantamweight champion title to Holly Holm.) I’m very pleased to see an athletic body on the cover and elated when Serena Williams was named Sportsperson of the Year and was iconed on SI as well.

I believe all sizes are beautiful but I prefer ‘health’ as the gage for all beauty.

Not all super skinny are healthy nor is every plus-size model. Yet, there are many body types that are should be honored. I believe it’s been the power of femininity and women who have demanded the ‘twiggy’ era to end and men who have publically acknowledged their love for a variety of body types. It’s a collective effort coming together.

 

When I created Lean Body Principles: Lose Fat Weight Fast! Secrets Your Doctor Didn’t Have Time to Learn, I wanted people to have a program that would help them design a nutrition and workout plan based on their body type. http://www.leanbodyprinciples.com.

LEAN BODY PRINCIPLES Facebook page

There are diet programs out there that do this, but not in one program like mine. I cover everything; nutrition plan based on losing body fat (not weight), demonstrating how to customize your nutrition and workout plan, how to change your mind-set so that you will be at your ideal weight forever.

Even though my program has just been launched, the principles presented in the program have proven to be 100% effective and I’ve used them on hundreds and hundreds of private clients and patients in my role working as medical weight loss specialist to physicians and in my own business.

Finally, younger women and girls have model types that reflect the majority and not the minority.

I’m so proud of these ladies and I appreciate Sports Illustrated for their acknowledgement.

I can’t wait to get my copy! Way to go SI!

 

Lots of love,

Kamille

 

 

 

Belly Fat and Ground Hog Day– What do they have in Common?

Ground Hog 1

 

Have you seen the 1993-fantasy comedy movie Groundhog Day starring Bill Murry and Andie MacDowell? Without spoiling it for you by giving all the details (it really is a must see if you haven’t seen it, I suggest you do), Bill Murray plays Phil Connors, an arrogant Pittsburgh TV weatherman who, during an assignment covering the annual Groundhog Day event on February 2nd in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, he finds himself in a time loop, repeating the same day again and again.

 

So, what does this movie have to do with Belly fat?

One of the things I think people do all the time when they want to change their body is to resort to things they’ve tried before even though it didn’t work. And they find themselves like Bill Murray, doing the same things over and over and never getting anywhere. It’s like the saying, trying to get different results using the same actions. It’s a recipe for insanity.

 

Is this you? Are you having trouble with too much love handle to handle? Well, you’re reading the righr article to get you on the road to doing something different and finally seeing the light.

 

It can be really discouraging when you find diets that say they help reduce belly fat and they don’t. To be honest, some programs are just way too difficult to stick to for long periods of time and when you can’t adhere to the stringent diet program, you may feel like a failure when in reality, it’s the program that just didn’t deliver.

Or…

Some people are just know it alls. They’re the ones that say…“ I know what to do…I just have to eat better, exercise more, and not drink so much…blah, blah, blah” But, it’s really more complex.

 

Why should you want to get rid of our belly fat?

 

The main reason why you want to lose your belly fat is because it’s dangerous!!! It’s the cause of almost every major disease including cancer. We all know this, but why is it so hard to lose fat especially around the mid-section?

 

The reason why losing belly fat is difficult.

 

The reason you have belly fat in the first place and the reason why it’s so difficult to lose is because the problem is hormonal. It’s caused by an imbalance of 4 important hormones: high insulin, high cortisol, high estrogen, and low testosterone.

 

High Insulin: Insulin is an essential hormone excreted by the pancreas. Its main function is to process sugar in the bloodstream and carry it into cells to be used as fuel or stored as fat. How do you know if your insulin levels maybe higher than normal? You are eating too many nutrient-poor carbs from processed foods like packaged low-fat foods, sugary drinks including alcohol, desserts, chips, and other packaged snack foods. In addition, you are not eating enough foods with loads of fiber. Over time, a high level of insulin causes metabolic syndrome (or insulin resistance) and type 2 diabetes.

 

High Cortisol: Are you continually stressed? Then even slightly over normal levels of stress can cause the body to increase its level of cortisol. Cortisol is an important hormone that helps the body with self-preservation. It’s the hormone that detects danger by helping the body cope. In modern times, bears don’t chase us or lions or we are not in life threatening situations every minute. However, in our modern age, we can ‘feel’ as if our lives are threatened if we are stressed at work or experiencing difficult relationships or if life seems overwhelming. Persistently elevated levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, are very detrimental to your health as well as to your body composition. If you suffer from a mood disorder such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder or exhaustion, or if you have a digestive issue such as irritable bowel syndrome, you can bet your body is cranking up your cortisol. Not only does it increase your appetite and cravings, it causes a loss of muscle mass, libido and bone density, and also contributes to depression and memory loss.

 

 

High Estrogen: What are the signs? A big belly in men. What causes it? The imbalance of the other hormones; insulin and cortisol caused by an imbalance of food choices. Even if you’re trying to eat healthy, it’s just not helping. That’s because the imbalance is causing a high level of estrogen to resulting in a conversion of testosterone to estrogen. High levels of estrogen increase a man’s risk of prostate cancer. Women who suffer from PMS may have high levels of estrogen causing fat to accumulate not only in your belly but also around your hips and thighs. A sign you have too much estrogen; it’s hard to lose weight. Other signs are low libido, memory loss, poor motivation, depression, and loss of muscle mass.

 

Low Testosterone: Testosterone levels decrease as abdominal fat converts it to estrogen, and also with increasing stress. While you are under stress, your body will tend to make more stress hormone (cortisol) than testosterone. Testosterone levels tend to taper off with aging, obesity and stress, but today men are experiencing testosterone decline much earlier in life, around the age of 25 and 30!! What are the signs? A loss of muscle tissue, depression, and decreased strength, stamina, drive and motivation. If you have your testosterone levels measured with a blood test, be sure to ask that both free and total testosterone be measured.

 

Here’s How You can Lose Your Belly Fat!

 

To lower insulin levels, bump up your protein. Increasing your protein intake keeps your blood sugar balanced and your insulin levels low – a metabolic must for appetite control and fat loss. Protein also packs a hormonal punch because it stimulates the activity of many of our fat-burning and appetite-controlling hormones when we consume it in the right amounts.

 

To lower cortisol levels: Get enough sleep .You must sleep at least 7.5 to 9 hours per night. Sleep deprivation makes us wake up with higher amounts of the stress hormone cortisol, which fuels appetite and increases our cravings, particularly for sugary and carb-laden treats, even when we have eaten enough. Not only does poor sleep pack on pounds, good sleep actually helps you to lose weight by influencing the hormones that control your appetite and increase your metabolism.

 

To lower estrogen levels: Green tea and turmeric have a negative effect on estrogen and helps the body to rid belly fat. It does it by correcting the balance of estrogen to testosterone. Also, adding more fiber to your diet such as ground flax and chia seeds to help assist your body to eliminate harmful estrogen. Too much estrogen in women has been the cause of several types of cancer.

 

To increase testosterone; add the herb tribulus terrestris and supplement with zinc. Women can have low testosterone too. Weight training helps increase testosterone levels as well as getting enough protein.

 

Now you know how to combat belly fat and get rid of it for good! No more doing the same thing over and over again like Phil in Ground Hog’s Day.

 

So back to protein. How do you know how much protein you need for YOUR body? How do you know what nutrition plan you should follow? How can you change your habits because we all know that change is 90% mental? That’s where my new program comes in. The Lean Body Principles. Check out www.leanbodyprinciples.com for all the details.

 

Happy Ground Hog’s Day!

 

February Self-Love Challenge! How I Turned Around My Valentine’s Day Disaster!

Love Yourself

Do you mind if I share my heart for a few minutes and get a little transparent and authentic? No matter how much I think I love myself, something always happens to show me that I definitely need to keep working on it.

 

Like the year I bought a guy I had been dating for a short time (about 2 1/2 months- the dates had been amazing! He was fun and I always had a great time with him and I thought he felt the same way about me) Valentine’s Day gifts assuming he liked me enough to do the same. In fact, he asked me out on the day before Valentines Day. Sure sign that I wasn’t on his Valentine’s Day priority list. He accepted my gifts without any explanation of why he didn’t have anything for me and I was too embarrassed to say anything.

 

Just the simple fact that I was too afraid to bring up the subject and that he didn’t care enough about me to give an explanation of why he didn’t give me anything (he accepted the gifts and said ‘thanks’…nothing else) let me know I had a long way to go in the area of self love. It wasn’t so much the exchange of gifts that was the real issue.

 

The real issue was me. I keep attracting emotionally unavailable men! Maybe I’M not as emotionally available as I think I am. I’m not sure, but to be honest, dating has really been very complex for me. And when February comes around, its just another reminder of how much I still have to learn in the area of romantic love. So, I decided after that incident, that I would begin treating Valentine’s Day differently.

 

Now, when Valentine’s Day Comes around, I make it a point to take the entire month and make it a special month of self-care, self-adoration, and self-fulfillment no matter if I am dating someone or not.

 

Most women I know are Big Hearted Women. We love easily and are giving. In fact too giving. It’s hard for me to be the BITCH in order to get and hold a man’s attention. I don’t like having to memorize and live by all the games suggested by some of the popular self-help books. It’s like the suggestions are against my nature. Perhaps they really do work, but one thing for sure…before anything will work, I know in my heart, I have to love self myself more and feel I am worthy of a love I desire and deserve because the world reflects back to us what our beliefs are.

 

Self-love is also important when it comes to health. I had to love myself enough to take the action to change my body. I loved myself enough and took a leap of faith by getting a coach to help me. The coaching, education, and training I received that helped me lose over 100 pounds was the catalyst to my transformation, but if it wasn’t my dedication to loving myself enough to change my body, no coach or trainer could have helped me.

 

Back to Valentine’s Day. I am well aware that Valentine’s Day was created as a huge marketing tool to stimulate the economy, yet every year I fall prey to all the beautiful hearts and roses that fill every store during the month of February. It’s hard not to get swallowed up in the hype. And, no matter how hard I try to say to myself it doesn’t matter that I don’t have anyone serious in my life, I still feel a little empty instead of filled with love and compassion just for the sake of it.

 

That’s why I created the February Self-Love Challenge

Here’s how it works. For every day during the entire month of February (this year is a leap year, so we get 29 days instead of 28 days to love ourselves even more) everyday you celebrate yourself by doing a self-love action. You can make up your own or use a few of the following 45 ideas:

 

1.Take a bubble bath or a shower wearing a tiara.

2.Read about a new interesting topic.

3.Sing.

4.Go on a self-love spending spree and stock up on super foods, organic skin care and coconut water, Juice Plus+ capsules or Complete Shakes (you can ask me about these J)

5.Go to your favorite hairdresser and get a new hairstyle or color.

  1. Make your personal health your priority. Make an appointment with a health coach, or research information on how to get healthier. It’s a simple act of love to yourself which will permeate all areas of your life.
  2. Take a Yoga, Pilates, Kickboxing class, or whatever turns you on….do it!
  3. Grow or buy a new plant.
  4. Do a detox.
  5. STOP doing something that no longer serves you. Smoking. Drinking. Hating. Resenting.
  6. Kiss yourself…on the shoulder. Hand. Foot. Tell yourself you love yourself
  7. Be still. Listen. Feel. Allow yourself to fill with the love and wisdom of the infinite
  8. Stay in your pajamas for a full 24 hours.
  9. Love. See your life through the eyes of love
  10. Appreciate the abundance that you are experiencing right now.
  11. Buy yourself that special something that you’ve been dreaming of. You deserve it.
  12. Take yourself out on a date.
  13. Kiss and cuddle a sweet, furry animal
  14. Fall in love with yourself.
  15. Drink a large glass of purified water. And then another one.
  16. Learn something new. A new skill. A new philosophy. A new habit. Expand your current life experience by adding to it.
  17. Thank yourself for all that you do.
  18. Choose to change your perspective to one that makes you feel good. You have the power.
  19. Start a healthy nutrition plan to: lose weight, gain weight, or simply to improve your health.
  20. Get a health/weight loss coach – Like me, Kamille Dawn Tirzah…I loves helping others because I’ve been there. Go to www.coachingwithkamille.com or leave your contact info in the comments.
  21. Apply for a new job
  22. Try something new. A new place. A new road. A new taste. A new person.
  23. Start a new business
  24. Chill with friends
  25. Do something you’ve been afraid to do.
  26. Eat dark chocolate.
  27. Dress up for yourself. Wear things that make you happy! Don’t dress to “attract a mate” or to impress your peer group, wear things that you like. Make yourself happy!
  28. Don’t patronize places that treat you poorly.

Forgive yourself.

  1. Start dressing in a way, which makes you, feel sexy & confident… As opposed to just following what’s in style. Not all silhouettes suit all people. There are definitely styles that are best for individual body types. Once you know what works for you, make the most of it! Few things make you feel better than knowing that you look great.
  2. Meditate
  3. Dance in public.
  4. Go on a nature adventure
  5. Snuggle up early one evening with your favorite drink and just listen to the world pass by. Preferably on a rainy night.
  6. Keep your Radical Self Love totem on you at all times & start telling people about it.
  7. Explore your sexuality.
  8. Find a mantra & hold it close. Like; Om Namah Shivaya, roughly translated, means “Greetings to She Who I am Becoming” &/or “With great respect, I honor my heart”.
  9. Stretch in the mornings.
  10. Think of a way you could make your life easier — then do it.
  11. Make lists of reasons why you love yourself…
  12. Take a 2-minute self-appreciation break.
  13. Try something new.
  14. Make a green smoothie.

Are You Addicted to Sugar???

sugarlips2

 

About 5 years ago, I had a client who admitted to me that she had a REAL sugar addiction. I asked her, “How do you kn

ow?” she said because:

I’m constantly thinking of sweets all the time.

I can’t go a day without a drinking at least 1 soda pop.

After a couple of days on a healthy diet plan, I find myself in the super market with a pie in my grocery cart and I say,” Tomorrow I’ll do better.”

 

I’m the type of coach that never judges ANYONE because I know what it’s like to have food addictions. And because I’ve experienced them myself and I’ve worked with so many people who deal with the same issue, I feel it’s time to share the truth about sugar, why people can get addicted to it and what they can do about it.

 

Since the beginning of our existence as we developed in our mother’s womb, we were pumped-up to the sugar hose. Not accusing your mom of being a sugar addict, but most all natural foods and processed foods contain a form sugar so it’s natural to like sweet foods from before birth.

 

Sugars are classified as being glucose, fructose, maltose, sucralose, maltos, galactose, and others from the combinations of these sugars. They are part of the structures in natural fruits, vegetables, whole grains and diary as well as processed foods such as refined carbohydrates like

bagels, breads, pastas, etc. Refined sugar sources are the root of all evil and the cause of most sugar cravings and addiction.

 

Let’s take a step back for a minute…The fact is, we need sugars from an adequate intake of carbohydrates and these sugars are necessary for the complete metabolism of fats to carbon dioxide and water in our bodies and for energy. It was meant to come from natural foods not from all the processed foods Americans have become accustomed too.

article-2418552-060725B3000005DC-587_310x467

Why is Sugar so Addictive?

Sugar has a powerful impact on the reward centers of the brain. When we eat foods that contain a lot of sugar, a massive amount of dopamine is released in an area of the brain called the Nucleus Accumbens. When we eat these foods often and in large amounts, the dopamine receptors start to down-regulate. This means that the next time we eat these foods, their effect is blunted. We will need more junk food next time we eat in order to get the same level of reward. Sugar and other junk foods, due to their powerful effect on the reward centers of the brain, function similarly to drugs of abuse like cocaine and nicotine.

In my opinion, I think all Americans are addicted to sugar at some level. You may think I’m generalizing, but unless you eat ZERO processed foods then you are not a sugar addict. AND people who eat this way do so because they know what its like to be chained and imprisoned in the sugar dungeon. But the line is drawn when we can’t stop eating sugar.

How Much Sugar Should You Have Daily?

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that we limit our daily sugar consumption to 7% or less of our daily calorie intake—that’s about 6 teaspoons (100 calories) for women and 9 teaspoons (150 calories) for men. But that adds up fast. Just one 12-ounce can of regular soda contains 8-10 teaspoons of sugar and 130-150 calories. One glazed donut contains 6 teaspoons, and a half-cup ice cream (the standard serving size, although most portions are much, much larger) contains 4 grams of added sugar!

Despite the claims from health agencies, there still seems to be so much controversy around what is considered a right amount of sugar intake. I think it’s about comes down to how YOU decide to relate to sugar. Here is a simple test to see if you are addicted to sugar.

Below are a series of statements. For each one you must give yourself a score of 0 (you never do it) to 4 (you do it four or more times a week.) At the end add your scores up, to see where you sit on the sugar scale. Please score yourself honestly!

 Here is your score criteria:

0 – Never
1 – Once per month
2 – Two to three times per month
3 – Two to three times per week
4 – Four or more times per week

 Answer each question truthfully:

  1. I find myself consuming certain sugary food or drink even though I am no longer hungry.
  2. I worry about cutting down on certain foods, even healthy organic foods.
  3. I often feel sluggish or fatigued because I overeat carbohydrates.
  4. I find myself searching for something sweet after meals.
  5. I have had physical withdrawal symptoms such as agitation and anxiety when I cut down on food containing sugar (Do NOT include caffeinated drinks: coffee, tea, cola, energy drinks, etc.)
  6. Eating certain food containing sugar, such as cakes, biscuits or fizzy drinks cheers me up.
  7. My behavior with respect to food and eating causes me significant distress.
  8. Issues related to food and eating decrease my ability to function effectively (daily routine, job/school, social or family activities, health difficulties).

 Score Yourself:

Score 0-8 – You are not a sugar addict: You do not have a problem with sugar, and do not need to worry about sugar.

Score 9-16 – You are on the borderline: our sugar cravings are under control, but keep an eye on them, so they don’t stray into higher figures.

Score 17-24 – You are climbing over the fence: Your sugar is getting out of control…you need to seriously cutback.

Score 25 and overYou are a sugar addict: Your reliance from sugar is out of control and you must cut back now, the amount of sugar you consume could be damaging your health.

So how did you do? If your score led you to discovering that you are in the sugar danger zone, what can you do in moving forward?

How to Stop Sugar Addiction

I believe it’s a personal thing, and I don’t think people should suffer. It’s a challenge to lose weight and to have to deal with a sugar addiction at the same time.  I believe in taking baby steps. That’s why it took me 3 years to lose a little over 100 pounds where some people have taken a shorter amount of time. It’s because I had to deal with a lot of food addictions. Some people feel giving up sugar cold turkey is best. Perhaps its all up to personal preference and personality type.

When I was addicted to carbs and sweets, everyday I made sure I had naturally sweet foods in my diet from fresh or frozen fruits. When I first stated out, I ate all the calorie-reduced desserts, but over time, my taste changed after eating more naturally sweet fruits and I no longer wanted the artificial sweetness from low calorie desserts and sugar substitutes.

Getting to the Root

According to Louise Hay, the popular metaphysical healing practitioner, the root cause of craving sweets is that your life is missing sweetness. I mean think about it, there maybe some truth to this. If so, get to the root by changing your lifestyle and incorporating things people and activities that make you feel good about life and yourself.

Sugar by far is a hard habit to break. Thank goodness there’s so many natural ways to get ‘sweetness’ in your nutrition so that you have the good of both worlds.

3 Hormones that Cause Belly Fat and What You can Do About it!! Part 1.

 

flat-tummy_1

As you may already know from following my blogs, is that I lost over 100 pounds after years of dieting and fighting with my weight. But, even after losing the weight I still had a really big issue…belly FAT!

Part of the problem was my posture. Standing straight, pulling back and pushing down my shoulders helped a great deal. I was taught through professional dance lessons that my posture had to be correct in order to keep my core stable and this was not natural for me, so even to this day, I have to constantly remind myself to stand erect, not to slouch, etc., but it never dawned on me that 3 key hormones were preventing me from having a flat stomach; Cortisol, Insulin and Estrogen.

Cortisol, Insulin, and Estrogen, when too high, will completely wipe out all your fat burning hormones – (You have 6 naturally accruing fat burning hormones in your body), if you don’t get these three under control.

Cortisol is created when we are stressed. I worked in an industry that had me stressed out 24/7. I had just moved to Florida and the adjustment to living in a new state and new city and finding work that fit my talents and skills and salary expectations was extremely challenging and I had cortisol pumping in my system continuously. So much so, that my sleep was disturbed and I had trouble keeping my weight under control.

Cortisol is created in the adrenal glands right above the kidneys and this is an important hormone, but not when triggered to be released all the time.

This is the hormone that kicks in when we feel under attack and really do have to move quickly to save our lives. But in modern days, our stress comes from things like our kids misbehaving, a horrible boss, marital problems, or trying to live a life where you have to balance many responsibilities. In many of us this hormone is on 24/7. When this hormone is ‘on’ losing weight can be a long hard struggle.

The second hormone is insulin. Insulin is triggered by sugar and it’s main job is to regulate sugar or glucose in the blood. But, when we are not eating properly or at inappropriate times or in quantities that do mot match our body composition requirements, then this hormone becomes out of balance and causes weight gain or it makes losing weight difficult and if not controlled, over time can cause serious health problems like diabetes.

The third hormone is estrogen. Men and women have estrogen in their bodies but having too much can cause not only weight gain, and difficulty losing weight, but it can also cause diseases such as cancer if not regulated. Estregon is also in the food supply; prepackaged diet foods and some protein powdered supplements are tainted with estrogen. Excess estrogen in men shows up as an oversized belly and man boobs! And guys, you don’t want this at all!

So how do you regulate and control these hormones so you can get rid of belly fat? I’ve learned from my celebrity trainer that it takes a system to get amazing abs and a flat belly not just doing one or two things. Here’s the system:

  1. You’ve got to be eating right, – this includes making sure you are eating clean food from the major food groups; protein, vegetables and healthy fats. Limit fruit intake but, make sure you supplement your diet with antioxidants so your body will still be able to get the benefits of a variety of fruit enzymes. The anti-oxidant formulations I use are Juice Plus+ and Body Balance.
  2. In addition to eating right, you’ve got to detox your body. Detoxing meaning eliminating sugar from your diet, drinking more water (at least 8-8oz glasses per day or ½ your body weight in ounces), taking a phytonutrient supplement to help your cells pull in nutrients that will help destroy the toxins in your fat cells.
  3. You’ve got to do at least 30-60 minutes of cardio (the right cardio for your body type) 5-6 days per week. Many guys like to just do strength training, but they forget that doing cardio is equally important.
  4. Abdominal workouts that focus on strengthening the muscles and flattening the abs are a must. But, done incorrectly can make matters worse. So, get with a trainer who is an expert at abdominal training so you will be doing the exercises correctly.
  5. Practicing correct posture. Most people have horrible posture. I include myself in this statement and I have to work hard on standing and sitting straight. How you stand and sit will help redirect the position of your abdominal muscles keeping them strong and supportive, thus helping to create flat abs.
  6. Eliminate night time eating and/or eat at least 2 hours before bed or if you do eat before bed, keep the meal small and clean such as a small piece of protein and a veggie snack or even a small serving of a protein shake.
  7. Get plenty of sleep. Sleep helps the body produce your anti-aging hormone HGH. HGH keeps your body get and stay strong and helps to speed up your fat burning metabolism. If you get at least 8 hours of sleep per night, you will see your abs getting flatter faster.

I’ve simplified this system for the purpose of explaining the steps and in reality each step can be explained fully and customized based on you as in individual. That’s what nutrition and fitness coaching is all about.

So, back to eating right. How do you know how much protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats you should have? I have a program called the Lean Body Principles that will help you know exactly how to create a nutrition program based on your body composition or body ‘blueprint”. The program is launching in just a few more days so stay tuned! In the mean time, please email me or place a question or comment box below.
