Finding The Best Weight Loss Program For You

best weight loss program

Dieting is a pain.  Don’t eat this.  Don’t eat that.  This is healthy.  This isn’t healthy. With all the conflicting information, so what is the best weight loss program for you?

Well, without a true understanding of what you need to do specifically for you as an individual to succeed, most non-customized plans simply advise to cut out everything that you love.  Like chocolate for an example.

I’ve been a health and lifestyle professional and coach for more than 10 years.  I’ve witnessed thousands of people who struggle with their weight so I know exactly how you feel.

You may have a lowered self esteem, little to no energy and might even be scared that you’re on the path to diabetes or heart disease. The worst part is that if you’re like most people I’ve met, then you’re probably extremely frustrated and tired of conflicting information about what to eat or how exercise. You have a busy life; so trying to research the best weight loss program or keep up with these programs is nearly impossible. So I don’t blame you if you’re frustrated.  Nothing is worse than being ready to make a change mentally, yet having no clue how or where to start physically.  You end up throwing your hands in the air and continue down the same path.

You Are Not Alone!

Sixty-two percent of people in the UK are considered to be overweight or obese which is a HUGE number.  So you’re not alone.  But it doesn’t stop there. This epidemic leads to many mental health issues like metabolism aggravating yo-yo dieting and heart disease which is a leading killer. So understanding the problem and taking action has to be your number one priority.

Finding The Best Weight Loss Program For You

Now with years of experience in the industry, I’ve learned so much about;

  • Understanding the problem
  • How to achieve amazing results
  • Finding an affordable solution

A solution that addresses the key factors like hormonal imbalances, lack of nutrient dense food, toxicity, and inaccessible healthy options.  A solution that is so easy to follow and doesn’t take away the foods that you love, like chocolate!

With the right guidance from a specialist like myself, coupled with the right solution, you’ll finally be able to meet your goals and stay there.

Imagine dropping 30 lbs of fat, living life with abundant energy complete with no pain or depressive diets in just 2 months.  It is not only possible but it’s also pretty easy.  Easy if you understand what I’m about to share with you.

Top 5 Questions You Need To Ask When Finding The Right Program

Each person is unique so the reason that you may not have seen the results you’ve hoped for is that you may have been trying diets or weight loss programs that are not designed for YOU specifically.  Here are the top things that you must pay attention to when choosing to start a new healthy lifestyle system.

How Well Is Your Brain Communicating Messages To And From Your Body?

Interference to the nervous system can be caused by many factors. If this is not checked properly by the appropriate health professional, like a chiropractor, then all your efforts could be for nothing. Before starting any healthy lifestyle system you’ve got to ensure that the master control system is functionally optimally.

Does This Program Consider Body Movement And Alignment, Mobility or Flexibility?

Your posture and mobility/flexibility has a direct effect on your health.  If your program is not functional in addition to nutritional changes then you may be wasting your time and money.

Is There Attention Given To A Healthy Mindset?

Changes to your lifestyle require a change in mindset as the first step.  Even if you manage to power through some diet for a couple months, the perceived pain will eventually take over and you’ll be right be to your old ways.  You must employ techniques to mold the “inside” version of the new you in addition to the “outside”.

Is The Direction For The Changes In Nutrition Customized For You?

You need to learn what is healthy for you specifically before starting your journey.

  • The quick fix diet
  • Liquid diet
  • Starvation diet
  • Low carb diet

among many others will not help you in the long run. The system should also be easy to implement.  Meal replacements make some programs simple but you will need to make sure that the ingredients are quality and that the macronutrient content is balanced. How do you know?  Ask a wellness expert for advice.

What Is The Measurement Of Success Of This Program?

Simply measuring your weight is not an accurate score of how “well” you are.  Furthermore, if you don’t take an accurate starting measurement, than how can you effectively measure your progress.  You can’t!

Weight Measures: BMI and Waist Circumference

A health scoring system should be used to determine your actual state of health when you start and the same system should used when checking your progress.  I use something called the Wellness Score with our patients which takes into account all of the following:

  • BODY FAT %

If you’ve read this all the way through then you must be serious about starting a journey to improve your health which is awesome.  Success is not far away. However, my advice is follow the guidelines I’ve detailed above to maximize your results and then maintain them once you’ve reached your goals.

The #1 Thing Blocking You from Optimal Health

Think about all the trillions of cells in your body for a minute. Just image the intelligence that is required within those cells to, for example, multiply and create a new life; a whole new human with all of its’ complexities. Our body knows how to do that…without ANY of our conscious help – isn’t that mind blowing? The point here being, our cells know what they are doing, they have enough divine intelligence within to know what healthy is, and in fact the natural state of our cells and our body is well being. That well being, is what we call homeostasis or being in balance.

The trillions of cells in your body know how to be healthy.

Okay so why are so many people in the world sick or struggling with physical ailments? There are a number of external conditions that throw us out of whack or off balance, the food we eat, the environment we are exposed to, our close relationships, but the one that is actually the most powerful and the one you have the most control over is what goes on between your two ears everyday.

What you think about your health makes a difference.

If you are here reading this article, I am sure you have heard before, there is a direct connection between body and mind, and if you are reaching for some element of greater physical health without attending to what goes on in the mind, you are missing half of the answer. Your reality is a reflection of what you believe to be true. You actually create your own reality based on your individual set of beliefs.

Have you ever taken a step back and asked yourself what you believe to be true about your physical body health or does it just feel like an automatic response based on what you have experienced and observed? Everybody gets sick in the winter; healthy food is expensive, it’s normal to get sick when you’re older, losing weight is hard.

These are all ideas that have been conditioned and accepted within us as facts. But I guarantee you these ideas are not true for every person in the world. There are people who go through winters without being sick, people living happily and healthy well over a century, and there are people at a healthy weight without sacrificing what they want, so what’s the difference?

What you say to yourself on a consistent basis about anything becomes a belief.

Beliefs are formed within us by years of repeating the same thought over until it becomes engrained, becomes a physical pathway in our brain, as well as our default. What most people don’t realize is their power in choosing a belief. Every individual has the power to choose to believe something or not – you are the one in control. And when you being to understand the connection between what you believe and what you experience in life, you suddenly start paying more attention to what you belief about health.

A belief is simply a thought you keep thinking.

New beliefs take time to take hold and it happens through conscious awareness and practice, but you can make a powerful decision right now and decide to be the one that chooses your beliefs about health. Start by asking yourself the question: What do I want to be true about my health? Actually make a list. You will be surprised at the invisible power that pulls you forward when you gain clarity on what it is you want to experience. How do you want to feel about your health? Do you want it to feel easy or stressful? You get to choose.

Our physical bodies are one of the most wondrous creations on this whole planet and you have the power to fully nourish or impede the healthy balance through your thoughts. What will you choose?

What is the Best Type of Exercise for My Body?

Best Type of Exercise for My Body

There is so much conflicting information about the best way to exercise. How do you know what is best for you?

Our bodies were designed to withstand the need to make surges of speed, but not to withstand long distance running. Our ancestors would run short distances to get out of harm’s way, to chase down dinner or to help a friend in need. We were not designed to run for great distances over long periods of time.

There are many forms of exercise that bring this principle into effect, such as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), where you work out as hard as you can for a short duration of time, potentially even for only 45 or 60 seconds (which seems like a lifetime when you’re doing as many push ups as you can!!) and then resting for the same timeframe or a little less. This kicks your metabolism into high gear, adds a significant surge of adrenaline into your body to keep up with this form of exercise and pushes your body to grow and develop muscle and improves your fitness.

The opposite form of exercise would be traditional cardio. You jump on a treadmill or hit the road for 30-60 minutes of fast walking or jogging until the time is up. Sustained movement for a long period of time, generally at the same pace and difficulty level to make your body move and cooperate. Cardio can help to lower your resting heart rate, increase your good HDL cholesterol and lower blood pressure, as well as improving circulation, blood flow and lymphatic drainage.

But cardio can also cause your body to produce higher levels of cortisol which can stimulate your appetite, increase fat storage and inhibit recovery.

How is this possible when exercising is supposed to be helping you lose weight and/or get fit? It has to do with the hormones that are released with each type of exercise. Cardio can decrease testosterone production and HIIT can improve your growth hormone levels while lowering your insulin resistance to help regulate blood sugar and reduce fat storage.

What is the best form of exercise for me? How do I know?

The best form of exercise for you is the one that you will actually do!! The risks of a sedentary lifestyle are much worse than the risks involved with either HIIT or cardio. Additionally, there are many other forms of exercise that offer corresponding benefits and risks, such as yoga, pilates, rebounding, kickboxing, hiking, crossfit and many others!

So talk with your natural health practitioner about what he/she would recommend as the best form of exercise for your personal situation and do that! Fall in love with joyful movement – find something you love to do and do it often. Or mix it up and take on different forms of exercise to keep your body guessing and working toward your optimal fitness levels. Have fun!

The Mindset Game – Set yourself up to Win


We’re almost 4 months into the year. How is it going so far? Are you accomplishing some of the tasks you had thought of around the new year that you would love to complete by now?

Do you even remember what your resolutions were? Or if you think resolutions are ridiculous because they only last 2 days, did you make goals instead? Or did you forget about your goals 2 weeks later?

Where is your mindset? What do you want? What are you doing every single day to move toward what it is that you want?

In the blink of an eye, it will be 6 months into the year and unless you start now to really decide what you want and begin implementing a plan to reach your goals, it will soon be December and you won’t have anything to show for it.

So what do you want?

Do you want to quit your corporate job that is sucking the life out of you to start your dream business? If so, have you taken a course in business? Or taken some online marketing classes? Or laid out your business plan? Started saving like it’s your full time job so that you can fund your project and your life while it gets going?

Every single day you need to take the next right step toward what you want to achieve. It is the accumulation of these small steps that will lead you toward brilliant success.

So think about it… what do YOU want?

Do you want to lose weight? Get your health back? Start buying more fruit and vegetables. And actually eat them before they go bad! Simply let fruit and vegetables crowd out everything else. And move that body! You are meant to enjoy movement, so find something you love to do and do it often. You don’t have to go to the gym and spend hours like a hamster on a treadmill. You can do high intensity interval training for just a few minutes per day – which allows your body to kick itself into a high-fat-burning-machine and burn fat for hours after you are finished exercising.

Are you still thinking about it…..what do you WANT???

Do you want a better relationship with your spouse? Carve out specific times during the week that are yours – that have no distractions, no phones, no tv, no computers. And just be together and enjoy each other’s company.

Marianne Williamson has an amazing book that will completely transform the way you stay in love – called Enchanted Love. Basically she says that as we’re falling in love, we see our new partner as perfection, through rose coloured glasses. Everything they do is absolutely perfect, and we are so smitten that it creates joyful expression throughout the other facets of our life. But over time, we begin to take the rose-coloured glasses off and begin to see your significant other as they are – imperfect, messy and usually late for dinner.

But Marianne says that the true state of someone is actually perfection – and it’s during the first moments of a relationship when you are wearing the rose-coloured glasses – that this is actually reality!! That is the truth of each person, and for a moment in time you are able to see their true soul perfection. But then society and our generational conditioning causes our true sight to become blurred – and the glasses fall off.

So let’s start to put those rose coloured glasses on more often and see our significant others for what they are – perfection! And make sure they have theirs on when they’re looking at you!!

Soooo… what do you want?

Make a list of the things you want to accomplish and create an action plan to start making them happen!! Create a vision board and this will also help to keep you on track, with the universe conspiring to help you make it happen!
