73 lbs lost to date! Register to hear more on Thursday…

I told you last week that the two most successful clients I’ve worked with using my “do less, get better results” approach lost 40+ lb in about 3 months, but…

After last week’s ezine went out, my client Karen responded with her own fabulous results: 73 lbs and counting.

Will you be joining me on my call How to Lose Weight Effortlessly Without the 3 Dreaded D’s this Thursday, April 11, 2013 at 12 noon Eastern? Don’t miss out! Register Here

Are you feeling heavy and sluggish? Do you have a desire to lose some of the excess weight you put on over the winter months?

Are you dreading, though, that you’ll have to do it by Dieting? Or by taking some experimental Drug? Or, that you’ll have to enter the dreaded zone of Deprivation?

This is an important time of year to acknowledge the hardships you’ve been through, by reflecting on the cold, harsh winter months or your challenging past experiences, or by celebrating Passover or Easter.

By releasing your burdens and crossing over to the other side, you create space to emerge into a fresh, inviting place of new beginnings.

When you let go of excess weight, think of it as Spring cleaning for your body or de-cluttering your internal environment. When you do this, you feel lighter and more energized. You feel better about your body and yourself. And that positive shift of energy and outlook support the planting & cultivating of new seeds in your life.

What will I talk about on Thursday’s free call?

  • The #1 Eastern-inspired secret for losing weight effortlessly
  • Foundational Principles I teach my private clients that are essential for letting go of what no longer serves you
  • How to Go with the Flow to lose weight naturally and without the 3 Dreaded D’s (Dieting, Drugs, and Deprivation)

But, first… The Bottom Line:  What do you have to gain? And what do you have to lose?

My least successful client who experimented with these ideas lost only 3 pounds in a month, and two of my most successful clients lost more than 40 pounds in three months and the one I mentioned above has lost 73 pounds to date.

How you lose weight without dieting or exercising more

It’s simple

Though not necessarily easy

It doesn’t require any special pills or
supplements
Nor the purchase of a special book or DVD

Nor is it sexy

So for all these reasons
It’s not a raging fad

But it is the longest known
Approach to dieting and weight loss
That I know of

 

It’s called mindful eating

 

And it requires two things:
One – you
Two – your attention

The first is pretty easy to come by
Since you are usually with yourself

The second is not so easy these days
With your complex “to do” list
And so many devices beeping and distracting you

But once you get your attention on board
It’s pretty simple

 

Here’s how it works:
You, alone with you, and whatever you are eating
Focusing all your senses and your wandering mind
on eating

 

(you’ll soon discover why, in yoga, we call it a
monkey mind – swinging here and there, up to all
kinds of mischief!)

 

Pay attention to what you notice
The data that each of your senses is gathering in

And respect what you learn

 

Starving? Interesting. Take a bite, of course,
but ask yourself why did you wait so long to eat?

Don’t like the flavor? Don’t eat it then. Period.

Not hungry? Don’t eat. Enough said.

Full already? Great. Stop eating and move on.

Adding seasoning (or dressing or whatever) out of
habit? Really want it?

Swallowing bites whole without chewing? Why in
such a rush?

Eating for reasons other than hunger? First,
welcome to the club. Second, take note of why and
pause. Breathe into what you are observing and
write it down. Then, move on and do something else
– but don’t eat.

 

Mindful eating.
Yes, it is eating.
But, it’s different this way, being mindful of why and when and how.
And – most important – respecting what you learn
and heeding that wisdom.

 

In this way
I lost weight
Without dieting
Or exercising more.

And as a result I felt:
-Lighter
-Freer
-More in control
-Better about myself
-More energized
-Comfortable in my skin and in my clothes
-Clearer in my thinking
-More focused and inspired about work

 

The old way is dieting

 

The new way is mindful eating

 

If you decide to give it a go
And try an honest experiment
With mindful eating
I guarantee you will feel some or all of this way
too
And maybe lose weight as a by-product of getting
to know more about your relationship with food

 

But if implementing this approach is more
challenging than you expected
And you would like support
breaking through to the other side
Then sounds like it’s time for you to meet with me

your family or becoming a slave to overworking?

How Food Choices Affect Performance: Part 2

You mean a food’s energetic qualities can affect
my ability to lose weight and perform at my
optimum level?

Absolutely!

Let’s say you really want to lose weight because
dragging the extra pounds around is tiring you
out, making your joints ache, and ultimately
making life less fun.

Ask yourself: “Are the energetic qualities of the
foods I’m eating supporting my desire to lose
weight?

 

Want to listen to this blog instead? Click Blog_012712_FoodChoices2.

 

Here, the term “energetic qualities” simply
refers to the ways in which a food’s unique energy
affects the energy in your body. Does it warm you
up or cool you down? Does it build you up or clean
you out? Does it make you feel lighter or heavier?
Does it make you feel more grounded or more
energized? Does it make your insides more damp or
more dry? And so on…

I know, I know. You might be wondering: what
happened to simply counting calories? Or, looking
at the ratio of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats?

Looking at your food choices through the lens of
energetics might be totally new to you, and that’s
a good thing! If you want to see different results
in your life and boost your performance, you can’t
keep doing the same thing again and again. You
need to be inspired to try on a different way of
thinking and being – so, stay with me and see what
you learn.

If you want to lose weight, then your energy is
likely sluggish, making it easier to stay glued to
the couch and than head outside to enjoy your day.
To counter this, you want to pick foods that will
motivate your body to get moving and let go of the
excess.

Here are two foods to consider  — one you’ve
heard of and another that may be totally new to
you:

–Fresh ginger root, which is known to promote
healthy digestion and blood circulation, as well
as warm up the body, which is said to aid in the
fat burning process

–Burdock root (aka “gobo” in Japanese cuisine),
which is known to cleanse the blood, thereby
freeing up your energy and even leading to clearer
thinking. It’s energetic effects are also
recognized as helping to reduce sweet cravings and
reduce fat levels in the body.

Eating either or both of these foods is like
saying out loud to everyone you know: “Yes,
indeed, I do want to get things moving and release
this extra weight now! I want to feel lighter and
move more easily in my body so I can perform
better in my daily life!”

On the other hand, here are two foods that you
should definitely keep eating if you want to enjoy
the same old heavy, achy, stagnant feeling:

–French fries. Yes, they taste so good, but the
general category of fatty, greasy, deep-fried
foods have sluggish energetic qualities that
contribute to poor digestion and slower
metabolism. Plus, as you likely know already,
foods fried at high heat are laden with trans fats
and contribute to inflammation in the body, which
can cause or exacerbate joint pain.

— Ice cream. You likely already know that high
sugar intake relates to high insulin levels in the
body which leads to more fat being stored and more
difficulty releasing fat from its storage places
in the body. But you may not know that processed
foods that are filled with refined sugars actually
drain your energy, muddle your thinking, and can
make your bowels sluggish.

Eating either or both of these foods is like
saying: “Ooooh, yes, I really really really want
to hold on tight to this extra weight, feel tired,
and generally lack in enthusiasm for life? Please,
please, can I?” But, really now, do you? I don’t
think so.

So, try on this new idea of food energetics and
see what you learn about yourself, your weight,
your performance, and so much more.

How Food Choices Affect Performance: Part 1

You mean my food choices affect my energy level

and performance?

 

Yah, a lot.

 

Let’s say you want to feel more energized so you

can get more done.

Ask yourself: “Am I eating food with lots of life

force energy?

 

Prefer to listen to this blog? Click Blog_012412_FoodChoices1.

 

Life force energy is the qi (or “chi”) that gives

life to (and animates the life within) every plant

and animal in our world, including you!

 

Whole foods, straight from nature, have the

greatest amount of life force energy.

 

Foods that come from a box or bag, that have been

processed, have much less life force energy – and

in some cases have none worth speaking of.

 

Think of it like a really, really long game of

telephone.  Remember that game from childhood,

when kids whispered words into each other’s ears,

beginning at one end of a line and waiting to see

what silly words came out at the end of the chain?

 

 

The original full nutritional potential or

meaning of the food gets a bit more diluted for

every step it takes along the

growing-picking-distribution-processing chain —

or in the case of whole foods like carrots or kale

— for every single minute, hour, and day the food

is away from its roots or its roots are out of the

soil.

 

Using the analogy of the telephone game again, if

the food started out as carrots in the ground with

green tops sprouting above ground – by the time it

ends up as canned carrots, it might have some of

the original color and flavor of the carrots, but

not much life force energy and greatly reduced

nutritional value.

 

Your ability to perform on the job or at home or

in the community is directly affected by the

amount of life force energy in the food you eat.

Your food choices affect your performance. You

need that life force energy to fuel your own life.

 

Ask yourself: “do I want to perform like a carrot

with its greens on top or a partially cooked

carrot saturated with liquid in a can?” I know,

it’s silly to think of it that way. But, just

imagine how different your energy level and

performance might be if you made different food

choices!

 

You might normally choose so-called fast foods or

convenience foods and drinks because you really

want to quell your hunger and fuel your brain as

quickly as possible, thinking that these foods

will give you the energy to do what you need to

do. But, unintentionally, your food choices end up

working against you.

 

The next time you’re looking to boost your energy

so you can perform better, will you reach for

another coffee or caffeinated soda or energy drink

or candy bar? Or, instead…. how about next time

you reach for beautiful, fresh, whole foods that

are actually bursting with life! Life that you can

use to be your best and perform at your optimum

level!
