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!

If you go right here, you can download my book for FREE! Can you imagine, after a week of following the suggestions and eating these delicious recipes you’ll not only lose weight but also feel like you’re NOT on a diet! Fun!! When you sign-up to get the free ebook, you’ll also get my newsletter with amazing articles giving away free tips you can really use and get results.

When people decide they want to lose weight, they want to have lost it YESTERDAY! But, we know that REAL weight loss takes time, dedication, determination and the right information.

My dedication led me to success and it can for you too! Yet, you don’t have to feel like you’re in weight loss jail. You can love the daily changes you will see in the mirror when you take the right action and eat foods that are yummy and make you feel great with tons of energy.

How to Change Your Life in 3 Simple Steps

photo 2

Changing your life really isn’t simple, but it begins with 3 simple yet very powerful steps. One of the most empowering action steps I took to achieve my dream body and what helped me achieve losing over 100 pounds was to make a vision board. I know it sounds silly, but I got the idea from a show I saw on Oprah and after creating one for myself and seeing my dream actualized, I became a firm believer in the power of vision boards. I also had a fabulous coach and mentor which I couldn’t have been able to do it without her…(you can read about how I did it in by first book titled, Fat Chick to Cover Model on Amazon).

However, some dreams need both the power of a vision board and a coach.

Here is an article from Jack Canfield illustrating how to make a vision board. Oh and by the way, I just want to share with you some successful weight loss results I’ve helped my clients get and if you would like to get the same or similar results, then get in touch with me.

How to Create an Empowering Vision Board

Your brain will work tirelessly to achieve the statements you give your subconscious mind. And when those statements are the affirmations and images of your goals, you are destined to achieve them!

Creating a vision board is probably one of the most valuable visualization tools available to you. This powerful tool serves as your image of the future – a tangible representation of where you are going. It represents your dreams, your goals, and your ideal life.

Because your mind responds strongly to visual stimulation-by representing your goals with pictures and images-you will actually strengthen and stimulate your emotions…  and your emotions are the vibrational energy that activates the Law of Attraction. The saying “A picture is worth a thousand words,” certainly holds true here.

If you have already defined your dreams, it’s time to illustrate them visually.

How to create a vision board that depicts the future you wish to create.

Step 1 – Find pictures that represent or symbolize the experiences, feelings, and possessions you want to attract into your life, and place them in your board. Have fun with the process! Use photographs, magazine cutouts, pictures from the Internet–whatever inspires you. Be creative. Include not only pictures, but anything that speaks to you. Consider including a picture of yourself in your board. If you do, choose one that was taken in a happy moment. You will also want to post your affirmations, inspirational words, quotations, and thoughts here.

Step 2: Choose words and images that inspire you and make you feel good.

You can use your vision board to depict goals and dreams in all areas of your life, or in just one specific area that you are focusing on.

Step 3 – Keep it neat, and be selective about what you place in your vision board. It’s a good idea to avoid creating a cluttered or chaotic board… you don’t want to attract chaos into your life. Use only the words and images that best represent your purpose, your ideal future, and words that inspire positive emotions in you. There is beauty in simplicity and clarity. Too many images and too much information will be distracting and harder to focus on.

dreamboard

If you are working on visualizing and creating changes in many areas of your life, then you may want to use more than one vision board. You might use one for your personal goals and another for career and financial goals. You might even want to keep your career vision board at the office or on your desk as a means of inspiration and affirmation.

 motivationboard

How to use your vision board.

 

  1. Try keeping your vision board on the nightstand next to your bed. Leave it standing in an open position as often as you are comfortable with, and spend time each morning and evening visualizing, affirming, believing, and internalizing your goals.

 

  1. The time you spend visualizing in the evening just before bed is especially powerful. The thoughts and images that are present in your mind during the last forty-five minutes before going to sleep are the ones that will replay themselves repeatedly in your subconscious mind through¬out the night, and the thoughts and images that you begin each day with will help you to create a vibrational match for the future you desire.

 

  1. As some time goes by, and your dreams begin to manifest, look at those images that represent your achievements, and feel gratitude for how well the Law of Attraction is working in your life. Acknowledge that it is working. Don’t remove the pictures or images that represent the goals you’ve already achieved.  Achievement of the goals in your vision board are powerful visual reminders of what you have already consciously and deliberately attracted into your life.

 

  1. I recommend you write down the date you created your vision board. The universe loves speed, and you will be amazed at just how quickly the Law of Attraction responds to your energy, commitment, and desires. Much like a time capsule, this board will document your personal journey, your dreams, and your achievements for that particular year. It will become a record of your growth, awareness, and expansion that you will want to keep and reflect back upon in years to come.

 

  1. It’s a good idea to create a new vision board each year.  As you continue to grow, evolve and expand, your dreams will too. Your Vision Board is meant to be kept and cherished. They chronicle your not only your dreams, but your growth and achievements.

 

Final thoughts on using your completed vision board:

  • Look at your vision board often and feel the inspiration it provides.
  • Hold it in your hands and really internalize the future it represents.
  • Read your affirmations and inspirational words aloud.
  • See yourself living in that manner.
  • Feel yourself in the future you have designed.
  • Believe it is already yours.
  • Be grateful for the good that is already present in your life.
  • Acknowledge any goals you have already achieved.
  • Acknowledge the changes you have seen and felt.
  • Acknowledge the presence of God in your life.
  • Acknowledge the Law of Attraction at work in your life.
  • Look at it just before going to bed and first thing upon rising.

I hope I’ve inspired you to create your own vision board. Your ability to visualize your dreams will serve as a catalyst in their creation.

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

 

 

 

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.

 LoveJournal

Want to make it really fun? Get a special Valentines Day Journal and write all your actions steps in it and keep tract of what you learn during the process. It will teach you a lot about who you are and how to love yourself 100%.

 

When I look back on that disastrous Valentine’s Day, I don’t blame him or even myself. There are no bad situations only learning experiences and I look at every situation as an opportunity for self-growth and discovery.

 

Also, regardless if I want to attract a love relationship or any relationship for that matter and if I want to be treated with love and respect, I have to love myself first, so much so, that everyone I come in contact with feels the love energy around me and loves and respects me easily and naturally. Most importantly, the creator, the divine source of all that is love ME and YOU and has a silver cord linking it’s heart to ours and we learn must tap into that love, guidance, and support in order to experience the free flow of love and joy.

 

If you feel the same and if you feel this article is a help to you, please let me know your comments below.  

 

In the meantime JOIN THE CHALLENGE and enjoy this month of loving yourself. You deserve it!

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.

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.

Shape Your Belly! 3 Hormones That Cause Belly Fat and What Your Can Do About It Part 2

This next secret to get rid of belly fat as mention in part 1 going beyond following the nutrition and exercise guidelines such as making sure to follow the complete system of eating right, getting enough water to flush out the toxins that make belly fat want to hang around in the first place, and doing the right exercises especially cardio 4-5 times per week.

 

It’s about getting those 3 hormones in control; cortisol, insulin, and estrogen to a healthy balance and by following the system provided in part I, you should begin to see amazing results. There are other mindful holistic things you can add to the basic system, and need to be honored more by discussing them in another article so you can get the most from the information.

 

For now, however, I’m so excited to tell you about this next secret that will get you amazing flat abs if you’re a woman in no time at all!

 

It’s been one of the most powerful secrets and techniques that have been used for centuries by woman all over the world. It’s called waist training,

 

Women all around the world have used some form of waist training to give them that hourglass flat, smooth, lean, elegant and skinny waist look for hundreds of years. Now, this technique has become more popular due to stars like Niki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aba, and more.

 

The most common waist trainers seen all over the Internet is the revision of the classic corset. They have been re-designed using special construction making the corsets more comfortable and with a system and technique to use them in conjunction with healthy eating and never to be worn when exercising.

 

In addition, classic corset styles can be very expensive. I’m not saying they are not good. It’s just that they may not fit well under your clothes and are often very, very uncomfortable. I’ve tried a few styles and I’ve found that all have some quirk about them that would make me stop using them.

 

However, my celebrity trainer has one I’m trying now and it’s amazing! It’s a 2 Phase system that helps look, especially after having children. In fact, waist -binding training is considered safe and healthy because if your abdominal wall is not strong and flat then your spinal column will become weak. Years of having a weak spinal column can cause various conditions that often can’t be reversed.

Waist Trainer

Waist training is not a substitute for doing abdominal exercises at all, in fact wearing the correct waist trainer will help you be able to safely do the exercises while strengthening your core abdominal muscles and lower spine at the same time.

 

Here’s how the system works:

 

The system of training your waist is done in two phases. The first phase can be used as a way to get your abs trained in how if ‘feels’ to be flat. This helps with celluar memory and helps your body correct posture instantly. Phase 1 will also take up to 4 sizes off your waist instantly. Phase two is lighter and can be worn on top of the stealth slimmer and is what helps reshape your waist.

 

 

 

In addition, using a cream underneath helps your skin reduce fatty cellular pockets that make your abs dumpy and bumpy and uses nutrients to help heal your skin as well especially after childbirth or after losing a significant amount of weight. Also, it’s good for tightening the skin as you shape your belly.
