JOCELYNS 5 LESSONS FOR WEIGHT LOSS I lost 15.8 kg in 2 months and have kept it off for a year and a half I learned quite a few valuable lessons while losing the extension on my physical being. Here it is summed up for you: Well first, I’ll tell you why crash diets don’t work… 1. Sustainability So you want to lose 10 pounds in 5 days? Drink this liquid diet or take this pill. You will lose the weight but here’s the thing you will gain it all back the next two – four weeks. Why? Because there is no sustainability…You can’t stay eating an adrenal stressing metabolism booster or liquid diet your whole life! Not if you want to live a healthy lifestyle anyway that is a recipe for an eating disorder. Plus if you are eating the right foods you can have as many as you want! Who would EVER want to calorie restrict? Therefore rule number one when approaching weight-less is this: Could I eat this food for the rest of my life and it make me healthy? Yup, it is that simple and that much of a commitment. Well if you want the change to last anyway… Another great thing to look at is removing yourself from any stigmas to getting involved with diet/nutrition religion. That’s right these days it seems if you want to be a healthy eater you automatically have to convert to some sort of eating religion! Are you vegan, raw food, paleo, green juicer, whole food, vegetarian…and the list goes on…. I am part of a liberating new “sect” of nutrition I have deemed the name >>> No Name Nutrition. I eat what is best for my body and what my body accelerates to. I am not strictly a part of any diet religion. I am eating what my body calls me to, what is provided by nature. Right now it is all mostly raw or steamed vegetables, no wheat-dairy or meat and lots of fresh fruits. BUT if your body calls you to have small portions of any animal products then do so to the call of your spirit (making sure that all of the practices with the animals are ethical of course which I’m sure I will get some sort of backlash for even calling eating animal products ethical). My point is nutrition is different for everyone, as long as it is Non-GMO and clean of pesticides, herbicides and artificial hormones to help ease the burden of toxins on your body-Then I say to each his own! Which brings me to my next point… 2. Self Motivation When you decide to change your outward physical appearance it has to be self-motivated. You have to do it because you want to FEEL your best. You have to do it because the person you want to undress for and look good naked for, is you and you alone. You will want to get up and sweat, you will choose consciously the apple over the cookie. No diet or person told you to lose weight, you aren’t doing it because some sign, magazine model or advertisement told you to…you are choosing it for yourself. AND for when motivation isn’t enough there is always education… 3. Know What Your Cravings are Actually Telling You You may not be getting enough nutrients. Many cravings you experience your body is simply nutrient deficient and is craving for foods that the tongue was trained to help you attain those exact key nutrients from. For example: A craving for salty food could be a nutritional need for more minerals. Add things like Himalayans ea salt, which is richer in every way comparatively to the nutrition devoid white, refined table salt, can boost your mineral reserves. Sea vegetables, kelp chips and nori are packed with minerals. Hemp and chia seeds are also tiny power house mineral-rich foods to put in smoothies. If you don’t have time for a smoothie drop a teaspoon on chia seeds in your water bottle with a squeeze of lemon or lime! Instant salty palate pleaser! A craving for sugar is often your brain looking for energy, the brain uses sugar or glucose for energy. So do the most basic and fundamental parts of you such as your mitochondria which produces energy on a cellular level. When we starve the brain from carbohydrates and healthy fats we are starving our nervous system and body from running optimally! These carbohydrates I have mentioned are the healthy ones of course such as fresh fruits and vegetables like potatoes. As well the healthy fats in like in nuts seeds, coconuts and avocados. As a side note I have also noticed that lack of sleep amplifies food cravings probably because your body has not had time to assimilate enough nutrients for the day. Another thing to check in on is craving food because of processing deep emotions…. 4. How’s Your Emotional Health I never realized how significant this one is. So much of my past was released and realized through changing my vibration through food. Food specially clean food from the earth offers it’s vibration to you. Keep this in mind, you may remember the saying “You are what you eat” (A little redundant but) let me put a crunchy hippie spiritual and scientific twist on it. Not only are you assimilating the nutrients but you are absorbing the energetic vibration. Which I will have to get into the scientific proponents to this one in another writing. If you are bombarded by stress, anger, shame guilt, your body creates fat to protect you! Unresolved emotional stress is a significant cause of extra body fat. Your body fat is a slave to your emotional response system or stress hormones. By healing your emotional wounds you then give way to allowing the extra weight to finally be released. I will tell you why physiologically: There are two hormone ques in your body: Cortisol and Human Growth Hormone Cortisol is released when you are stressed. Cortisol tells your body to store fat and decrease muscle; whereas, Human Growth Hormone which is released when you are emotionally balanced, tells the body to let go off fat and increase muscle. How are your stress coping skills? Have you learned to recognize certain destructive thought patterns that may be stemming from a belief that now longer serves you? Are you able to love yourself unconditionally? 5. Unconditional Love Here is THE BIGGEST LESSON I learned about losing weight in a healthy way. You have to love and accept the way you are right now. Here’s the thing. If you keep saying to yourself that happiness is in that other physically fit/thin version of you, it is not. I have seen so many people lose all of the weight thinking that they would be happy with their new physical self but when they reach their goal weight still have some areas they are not happy about or self-conscious about. The mind and soul are not altered in the weight losing process. You have to start loving yourself now. Another reason to start loving yourself now is, if you’re eating right and exercising moderately or even a lot and not seeing the results. I remember when I started this process I would take an expo dry erase pen and write on my mirror: You are beautiful! I love you right now, just the way you are! Picture yourself happy and healthy now. This was the alchemy that was the catalyst to true lasting change. You are not this body. You are not your skin. You are the beautiful healthy shining soul that lay within. Namaste, we are one Jocelyn
Here are 11 Tips to Overcome Negative Energy & Be More Positive: 1. Bypass the Negative “Turn your face to the sun and all of the shadows fall behind you.” – Marori Proverb If you truly want to turn a negative into a positive, skip the negative altogether and just be positive. You can override the negative with practice. Look forward and focus on where you are going, not where you have been. Your soul yearns for growth and expansion for our highest good. 2. Realize you are stronger than you think. Fear is a nasty negative emotion. It holds us in bondage and can rob us of our true potential and happiness. It tells us we are not good enough and that we are weak. It whispers lies in our ear and sometimes we believe them. The more we believe them, the farther away we travel from the life of our dreams. To overcome the negative we MUST realize we are stronger than we believe. We can do more than we think. We are capable of so much more. Believing in ourselves is the first step. When we let go of limiting beliefs, we open doors of opportunity that we never once thought possible, and gain the courage and strength to enter those doors and do our best. 3. Practice changing your perspective. There is always a positive perspective you can take from every situation. Yes, it’s not always easy but even the most negative and traumatic situations hold life lessons to move forward. When you choose to habitually move forward from pain with a positive perspective your life will transform. You will release anger, blame and many other negative emotions, while opening your heart, mind and doors to new opportunities. “See the positive side, the potential, and make an effort.” ~Dalai Lama Click here to learn more about how to enter into a positive perspective 4. Smile more and walk with an uplifted disposition. Have you ever looked at random pictures that someone has taken of you at an event or gathering? What does your normal demeanor and disposition look like? Do you look joyful or unhappy? Are you smiling or do you appear stressed? If you aren’t sure, consciously check in with yourself throughout the day. Be sure your face and body are relaxed and walk with a comfortable, upright posture. Smile as often as you like, even if for no apparent reason except for the fact that you are alive! 5. Focus on building the new. “The secret to change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” – Socrates Switch to forward thinking and release the held visions of the past. Learning from your past is helpful in building the new, but don’t keep your focus there or you will continue to repeat the same mistakes. Growth happens when we step out of our comfort zone in faith, explore new horizons, and begin to create a life of your dreams. 6. Make the best of what the day brings – dress up and show up. A positive attitude won’t protect you from all of the negative, but it will help you better manage how long it stays around. When a challenge arises, make the best of it. React to negative situations with peace, patience, an open heart, and open mind. If you wake up feeling down, dress your best anyway. Actually, it’s when you need it the most. Show up for yourself and you’ll instantly feel happier and more confident. Life loves when you step into your power and transcend the negative. 7. Enhance your self talk. Speak about your worthiness. “Like food is to the body, self-talk is to the mind. Don’t let any junk thoughts repeat in your head.” -Maddy Malhotra How you live your life is largely determined by that “eency-weency” voice inside your head. If that voice speaks down to you, it’s important to hush it and start speaking words of worthiness. Love yourself the way you want others to love you. Have you read our 24 Affirmations to Help you Build Positive Self Talk? 8. Keep in touch with positive people. We can’t do everything by ourselves and thinking that way will keep us from our highest good. We all need each other and daily inspiration from others. Neurons that fire together wire together, so it is vastly important that you allow yourself to fuel on positive energy from those around you. Take a moment to consider the people you keep in touch wight he most– are they helping you along on your journey or are they stressing you out? Allow yourself to connect with more positive people every day! 9. Spend time alone, but not too much. Spending time alone can be rejuvenating. During this time you can meditate, read, do yoga, take a bubble bath, or just be. It’s very important to take this time for yourself every day (or at least a few times a week). The key is not to spend too much time alone. Often times too much time alone gives you too much time to over think things. We all need human interaction, especially with those that we truly love. 10. Live in Gratitude. “Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.” - Brian Tracy If something isn’t going your way, one of the first things you can do is think of all the things going right. Turning on the gratitude switch will help begin to turn it all around. After some diligent practice, gratitude will be so engrained in your life there will be no need for practice. You will wake up every day living with a thankful heart. Your beautiful, radiant positive energy will be picked up by others and inspire them. Gratitude is surely the quickest way to overcome negative thinking and transform your life. 11. Be active daily and eat raw, whole foods. Movement is good for the mind, body and soul. It allows everything to move whether it’s our blood, oxygen or tension and negative emotions. Exercise of any form allows your mind to stop and focus to be placed in the now and on your breath. In addition, fuel your body with raw, plant based foods that contain energy not found in processed or cooked food. There is a much higher level of positive, light energy in these foods and your body will thank you. You won’t feel sluggish, tired, or full – you’ll feel energetic, revitalized, and satisfied! *BONUS POSITIVE TIP* 12. Read positive quotes and articles daily. What are you watching and reading daily? Be sure that it’s positive. For instance, listening to the nightly news could be switched to watching an inspirational documentary, reading a self help book or watching GaiamTV. One great way to receive daily inspiration is to stay subscribe to Power of Positivity on Facebook. By becoming a fan and being part of this fast growing, positive community you will receive daily quotes of inspiration and connect with like-minded people any time.
4 Ways to Lose Stomach Fat For some, stomach fat is a stubborn area and often the last place that you lose centimetres. Muffin tops are not only unattractive but storing fats around your stomach areas is also unhealthy. The key is to know which foods to avoid and learn how to lose stomach fat to improve your health and get that flat looking tummy you desire. Refined sugars Refined sugars are energy dense and often lack any nutritional benefits. Eating a diet high in these simple carbohydrates such as fruit juices, carbonated drinks, sugary cereals and lollies causes you to store fats around the abdomen. These types of refined sugars should be avoided or keep to a minimum in your diet to help you lose stomach fat. Saturated fats A diet that is high in saturated fats is linked to cardiovascular disease as it causes you to store fats in and around your abdominal region. Foods that are high in saturated fats include processed meats, full fat dairy and animal by products such as sausages and bacon. Our number one recommendation on how to lose stomach fat is to reduce the amount of saturated fats in your diet and you will not only lower your risk of cardiovascular disease but you will also reduce any unsightly belly bulge. Tran fats Trans fats are the worst kind of fats in your diet. Typically, foods that are highly processed are high in Trans fats although food authorities have worked to reduce the amount of trans fats that a product can contain. Margarines in particular have greatly improved over the years and now have a much healthier profile of fatty acids. Foods which are high in Trans fats include baked goods, pastries, pies, frozen foods and sauces. These are typically very energy dense foods as well so reducing the consumption of these foods will be beneficial for your overall weight loss as well. Alcohol Even though alcohol is not a food as such, it is a macronutrient that when consumed often, will contribute to belly fat. Alcohol causes a fatty liver because it always takes priority over fat burning and is metabolised in the body first before any other macronutrient. So, if you want a 6 pack and want to reduce belly fat? It’s time to throw away the 6 pack! By following these basic guidelines you will not only learn how to lose stomach fat but you’ll also help to improve your overall health at the same time. To recap, if you make a few changes to your diet by eating foods that are lower in saturated and Trans fats, low in refined sugars and high fibre and swap your alcoholic beverages for water, before you know it, you’ll be needing to punch more holes in your belt buckle.
Caroline Myss - STRESS!!!!! Stress and psychosomatic contributions to illness are given rather short attention in the traditional medical model. Many physicians don't want to admit that 85% or more of all illness is psychosomatic, as I was taught in medical school; they tend to consider such patients "crocks." In the last few years, however, psychoneuroimmunology is increasingly demonstrating, from a very scientific point of view, that mood is perhaps the most critical factor in maintaining the integrity of the body, especially of the immune system. Depression essentially clobbers the ability of the immune system to be healthy. On the other hand, positive thinking and a cheerful outlook can go a long way toward helping us become, and remain, healthy. THINK RIGHT to BE RIGHT.
Surprise, surprise… happy people live their lives differently. They don’t have different lives. They just do a better job at living them than those who are unhappy. 10 THINGS THAT PEOPLE WHO LOVE THERE LIVES ARE DOING DIFFERENTLY! 1. When you ask them what they do, they don’t give you a job title. They tell you about the things they are doing with their lives — the places they have visited and are planning on visiting. The projects they are starting or part of. The problems they are working towards solving and the communities they are working with to get those problems solved. 2. When you ask them what they do, they respond with what they do in their lives, not what work they do in order to pay for the lives they want to one day be living. The real trick is that these individuals know better than to wait to live the lives they want to live. You live life whether you accept or ignore the fact, how you live it in the moment determines how happy you are. 3. When you ask them where they live, they say, “At the moment…” Happy people tend to move around a bit. Maybe it’s because traveling does the soul good. Maybe it’s because the stagnancy of staying in one place their whole lives bores them. 4. Maybe it’s because they love meeting new people and having new experiences. Maybe it’s because they haven’t found the right place to settle down just yet. You see, these individuals see the world as their home — no single country or city. If you ask them where they live, then they’d answer “earth” if they wouldn’t come off sounding highfalutin. 5. They have their own philosophies, their own religion they created and live by. You don’t need a book to tell you how you ought to live your life. You can live your life by whatever philosophy you wish — as long as you found truths that satisfy you. They have a strong grasp of right and wrong and are their own judges. 6. They embrace their impermanence. They know they’re only mortal — having this knowledge and accepting it fuels their every step. You will too. Why? Because it is inevitable. There is no way of avoiding it, only dealing with the fact. 7. The happiest of people don’t fear death. They don’t do their best to avoid it. They see it as the inevitability that it is in and live their lives by their terms. They may not be able to control death, but they know they sure as hell can control their own personal lives. 8. They see the world as their playhouse and their mind as the conductor. They don’t believe there is a single way that the world is — a single reality that exists. Instead, they believe themselves to be the originators of their reality. 9. They believe they have full control over how they interpret what they perceive. They see the world the way they choose to see it because they understand the power such a skill has. We all live in a reality of our own construction. Some of us just construct our realities better than others. 10. They live in the moment, but dream in the future. Happy people have hopes, dreams and goals. They have wants and aspirations, but they don’t allow themselves to get caught up and lost in them. There isn’t so much a time and place for dreaming as there is a maximum allotted amount recommended. You can’t live life doing nothing more than looking towards the future because you’ll miss the only time that things actually matter or exist: the present. The present, the immediate moment is the only moment that you can actually live in. The rest is only an illusion. They don’t bother changing others, but instead learn how to deal with them appropriately. Devoting your energy to changing other people is a waste of it. People do change, but they only do so on their own accord. They have to decide to change themselves and that only happens in time — you can’t push and force because it doesn’t work. On the contrary, it often does the opposite of what is intended. Instead of wasting time and energy trying to do the impossible, why not do the next best thing? Learn to deal with people as they are in order to get the result you desire. If you can’t change them, then guide them to do as you wish. Otherwise, let them go.
