Weight Loss and Diets! Are They Working for You?

By now many of us know that in the long run diets typically do not work. Many diets are successful in helping produce temporary weight loss and the short-lived good feelings that go along with them. However, from a physiological and psychological perspective most diets are doomed to fail. As a result, we have embraced a diet mentality that is insidious and often results in and encourages dieters to be in a constant war with their bodies.

In order to achieve sustainable weight loss, you must begin nourishing your body with healthy, delicious foods and begin uncovering and healing the root causes that had you put weight on in the first place.

In this video I discuss how addressing the physiological and emotional body must go hand in hand in order to lose weight and keep it off.

The issue can simply be whittled down to this question, “Are you putting your life on hold until you lose weight?”

Are Food Cravings & Emotional Eating Sabotaging Your Weight?

May 01, 2020

Overcome Food Cravings and Emotional Eating

If you want to put an end to uncontrollable food cravings and emotional eating it is important to understand the role of stress and learn how eliminate it.

Stress is a biological response experienced on encountering a perceived threat. The body releases hormones, predominantly cortisol and adrenaline, which help prepare it to take action, for example by increasing the heart and speeding up breathing.  Many factors can trigger this Fight-or-Flight response, including dangerous situations and psychological pressures, such as work deadlines, exams, and sporting events.

This readiness to expend extra energy ideally passes quickly; however, some people find themselves in a nearly constant state of heightened alertness. This is chronic stress, which can be caused by high-pressure jobs, financial difficulties, challenging relationships — or by your thoughts and feelings, like consistently living in fear, anxiety and...

Essential Practice to Overcome Emotional Eating ~ Make Friends with Your Emotions!

Emotional eating is a reaction of dealing with unwanted emotions and feelings. Eating can be a way to temporarily silence or “stuff down” uncomfortable emotions, such as anger, fear and sadness.

Change Mental Patterns to Release Excess Weight Forever

Change Mental Patterns to Release Excess Weight Forever

Are you tired of diets that do not work? Have you tried all the weight loss pills and medications or even considered surgery?

The good news is that you can achieve your perfect weight, naturally and easily... and stay that way, forever!

Most weight loss diets fail, as you may have experienced yourself. Even with those that seem to work, the benefits are often short-term, the weight coming back on a few months later. Weight loss pills and medication carry health risks and do not resolve the real issues.  As a last resort, weight loss surgery often provides the answer, however this "weight loss fix" is just that, it imposes a solution onto the body, the symptom is fixed but the problem is still there.

We may know what we need to do, but we cannot find the momentum to act. The root of the problem is likely to be the beliefs and mental patterns that sabotage us and keep us from reaching and maintaining our health and wellness...
