Have you tried every diet under the sun? If you weigh over 200 pounds and you feel like you are at your wits end with trying to lose weight, and having it backfire on you over and over again, then this article is for you.

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • Even though you set goals you never see any progress?
  • You watch desperately as the scale creeps up farther and father and you feel helpless.
  • Your greatest wish is to break free from the chains of discomforting fat, achieve your greatest dream, fit into clothes you love, and be able to move with ease and grace.

All of this is possible for you. It doesn’t feel that way, but I promise it is.

Have you heard? The game of weight loss has changed! Did anyone tell you?

 

1st things 1st. I want you to take everything you think you know about weight loss and throw it out the window!!!

Okay, now let’s start with that fresh slate.

I’m going to take you through a new and wonderful blueprint that you can follow and see great results. This blueprint has been proven, scientifically and by many people who have had hundreds of pounds fall off.

Gone are the days of starving and endless workouts at a humid sticky gym. Gone are the days of deprivation from everything you love and never seeing more than 5 pounds drop off the scale.

Are you ready? It is all EMOTIONAL

Your body wants to be what it is. It doesn’t care what the latest trend is. Your body keeps you safe no matter what that happens to be for you.

Here is a list of actionable steps to encourage your body to want to be thin.

  1. Stop Cardio!

That feels as good to type as it does to read! Exercise isn’t for weight loss it’s for toning and muscle building. With over 50 lbs or more to lose all the cardio in the world won’t help you lose weight. All its going to do is stress your joints and discourage your journey.

 

Recent studies done by Current Biology have shown that exercise plays absolutely no major role in weight loss what-so-ever.

 

This is not to say that exercise isn’t healthy or beneficial. On the contrary everyone should move their bodies and get some form of exercise each and every day. However, working out for endless hours putting strain on your joints and bones is doing nothing in the way of weight loss. So put it off for now.

 

  1. Leptin Resistance

Hormones play an enormous factor in weight loss and weight gain for that matter.

Leptin is a hormone that regulates hunger and energy. It sends 2 messages to the brain.

  1. I’m hungry we need to eat soon
  2. We have eaten enough and have energy to burn let’s move!

Where has this hormone been hiding you ask? Unfortunately, leptin is silenced when there is insulin resistance in the body.

There is a huge link to leptin resistance and obesity

This is why we focus on diet first, exercise comes after.

By eating lots of lean proteins, adding live foods to every meal, and good probiotics you will cure leptin resistance and heal your body deficiencies.

  1. Insulin Resistance

We know what you’re thinking; of course, here we go with hating on carbs!

But here’s the deal. 90% of all people who weight over 200 lbs are insulin resistant. So, it’s pretty likely you are too.

This makes every carbohydrate you eat work in the opposite effect and instead of giving you energy, it creates glue in your system.

According to Dr. Berg this can lead to a lot of other pretty nasty problems like diabetes and metabolic resistance.

YOU NEED A CARBOHYDRATE DETOX

It’s time to cut carbs.

A good month or 2 without carbohydrates will help your body in repairing itself.

You can start to add them back in slowly as you see progress and your hormones have leveled out. By detoxing the body and resetting it you can greatly improve your health in drastic ways.

  1. Leaky Gut

Another thing you are more than likely experiencing if you weight over 200 lbs is leaky gut syndrome.

This sounds disgusting and scary. But don’t worry.

All it means is that your body isn’t processing and absorbing the nutrients from the food that you need.

                It’s super simple to cure.

All you need is to cut all processed sugars and grains, and add a strong quality probiotic.

That’s it! Super simple!

  1. Walk, Walk, Walk

The power of walking has been pushed to the wayside as other trends have taken flight. But walking has always been the back bone of any thin, fit, and healthy society. It has also been the main form of transportation since the beginning of time.

It is surprisingly powerful for weight loss

There are many benefits to walking such as helping with high cholesterol, mood, creativity, posture. However, if you are over 200 lbs. walking is a light and comforting way to move your blood, and muscles without hurting yourself.

 

  1. Diets Don’t Work

You are an emotional being. You have past programs, you have a personal blueprint that is unique to you and only you. There is an underlying reason you can’t lose weight and it’s mainly emotional.

Our entire lives are made up of how we feel about things. What we like, don’t like. How we were treated as children, or recently.

Your weight loss journey isn’t scientific, it’s emotional just as you are.

 

Your body will not let you lose weight if it doesn’t want to be thin.

 

This is becoming more and more widely accepted as truth among doctors and scientist as thousands of people are seeing success with this concept.

Jon Gabriel is a pioneer in this thought process and has helped countless people lose hundreds of pounds.

After a lifetime of searching for the weight loss key, Jon discovered that diet is not the answer. He proceeded on his own personal search for what was the answer and succeeded at melting 220 lbs without diet or surgery. He just recently celebrated 10 years of successfully keeping it off and continues to teach people the same concept.

You can read more about him here.

The bigger you are the more emotional blockages you have, preventing you from letting go of the weight.

Consider seriously looking into this. You have nothing to lose accept massive amounts of cumbersome weight.

I truly wish you a successful journey on your path to weight loss.

It is difficult to find quality information for people who have more weight to lose than the average 20 pounds. If you have any questions or concerns I would be more than happy to help direct you to finding proper answers.

11 Steps to a more organized year

11 STEPS TO A MORE SIMPLIFIED AND ORGANIZED YEAR

I’ve been doing a lot of goal setting/researching lately on how to make this year the best one yet! Life gets in the way of our happiness a lot, at least in my world. Things seem to go a million miles an hour and at the end of the day it was all just a busy blur…I decided to try to change that this year by “smelling the roses” a little bit more. Making life easier and more simplified in a practical way. Here are 11 awesome ideas that I am trying to incorporate into my life and maybe they will help you out in your struggle for more daily peace:

GET RID OF CLUTTER

Make it a habit and personal rule to keep your house clean all the time. This can be a challenge specially if you have children in the house. But by getting rid of the clutter on the counter tops, bathroom vanities and end tables you will see a dramatic increase in the visual clutter and stress the room has. Make it a point to get rid of anything not regularly used or find a home out of sight for it.  Think outside the box when it comes to finding homes in small spaces. Tops of linin closet shelves, you know the ones that you can’t reach without a stool, are a great use for vases, pans that you only use once a year, bulk dry goods, or toiletries.

Don’t under estimate the power of under bed storage. Thin flat bins are great for sliding under the bed with extra clothes, wrapping paper, even extra towels and wash clothes.

BECOME DEBT FREE

Becoming debt free is a mental decluttering. By eliminating the extra stress of on time payments, or even finding the money for the monthly payment you eliminate the extra paperwork. You also get to keep your hard-earned money allowing you the opportunity for financial growth and freedom.

LEARN TO SAY NO AND CLEAR TIME IN YOUR SCHEDULE FOR YOU

This one is hard for many people. There is always an underlining sense of guilt when it comes to saying “no” to someone. The fine art of using the word “no” could not be a more powerful tool in your vocabulary. By learning what is a healthy amount of time and activities spent out of the house, or entertaining others in your home, you can live a healthier dynamic family life. You and your personal time is extremely important to your health and mental well-being. Make time for yourself. Learn the fine art of the powerful word “no.”

LESSEN YOUR TIME AROUND TOXIC PEOPLE

We all know someone in our circle of acquaintances that is plain toxic.

For some it may be a co-worker or boss. For others a parent or sibling, and for others they be in a romantic relationship with someone who’s personality and selfishness is purely toxic.

Whomever it is that makes you suffer in some way or another it is time to be strong and start putting some distance between you.

Sometimes you absolutely can’t get away from them. If it’s your parent or boss, you may be stuck for a long time with the unhealthy dynamic of toxic person. However, if you have friends that you are starting to see are unhealthy to be around, negative, bad influences, selfish, and soul sucking it is time to cut the cord.

If it is the former, and you are in a relationship with someone either professionally or maternally than you may need to get some help. Standing up for yourself, setting distance and boundaries can be nearly impossible when it comes to narcissistic people, but if you stay strong and above all positive you will see changes I promise.

SIMPLIFY YOUR WARDROBE

This one seems superficial, yet there is a great relief in knowing what you are wearing when you get out of bed. Having so many items that you don’t know what you have let alone what to wear is an overwhelming stress added task in our daily lives. It requires more time in getting ready for the day. It requires for time shopping because we don’t even know what we have. It requires for work in washing things we’ve worn.

By slimming down your clothes, choosing only what you love, and what is functional with other things, you free up space, time, and energy each day. Simplify your morning and over all your daily life.

MAKE A TO DO LIST

Setting goals each day that you need to get done help you to always know what you are doing and where you are going next. It’s like planning out a vacation, you have an itinerary and a location to which you are traveling. Each day is a similar concept. By planning out your day you set up an itinerary for yourself, mapping out your accomplishments one by one.

MINIMIZE YOUR BELONGINGS

This one feels daunting especially after the holidays and into a new year. It can be a real undertaking, but it is one of the most freeing feelings to bring bags and bags of donations to the thrift store! Things you don’t need, haven’t used in forever, or ever, and things you can replace with new things that have multiple functions! Get creative and research for gadgets that can replace several things. Get intentional about your belongings, if you don’t need it, use it and love it, it’s got to go!

SPEND LESS TIME ON SOCIAL MEDIA

We spend so many hours on social media as a society. But many studies have shown that people can get anxiety from too many hours of social media. This is because of the lack of sustaining fulfillment that social media brings.

Why not make a conscience choice to power down every day at some point and be present. Engage with friends and family and take care of yourself physically. Other people’s moment to moment play by play is an unnecessary stress on your life.

GET OUTSIDE

Getting outside each day is extremely beneficial to your health and well-being. There is nothing more simple and relaxing than stepping into nature. The air is clean and fresh, the sounds are natural and calming, the sun is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Simplify your life by touching nature each day.

AUTOMATE YOUR PAYMENTS

A great way to organize you bills and payments is to put them on auto-pay. Most people get stressed out thinking about payments and late fees. By putting your bills on auto pay and getting direct deposit, you can remove all the worry and stress that organizing bills and payments can bring.

PRACTICE THE 2 WEEK RULE AND FRUGALITY

Becoming disciplined is the key rule to simplifying and organization. By practicing self-discipline, you can avoid so many pit-falls. One of the best ways to practice this is to practice the 2-week rule.

If there is something that you want to purchase but it isn’t a necessity, wait 2 weeks. By the end of the 2 weeks you will probably have forgotten all about it or discovered that you didn’t want it in the first place.  Living above our means is one of the biggest stresses of life. Live below your means at all cost, no matter how temping and you will have a simpler and less stressful life.

5 Tricks to Instantly Reach Your New Year’s Resolution

The New Year is around the corner. Its funny how slowly the year seems to creep by for the first half, and by June it’s flying so fast you might as well start Christmas shopping because it’s just around the corner!

As a kid, it was; of course, a tradition to set New Year’s resolutions. Then as an adult the tradition slipped. I noticed how lax I got in my early 20’s with certain things. And how if I wasn’t intentional with my year, my goals, and my wishes they would either fade into past thoughts, or cease to exist in my mind at all.
