Weight Loss Block #1

'Low Digestive Fire'

Weight loss is not as simple as 'eat less & move more'.

There are 8 physiological blocks to weight loss that have nothing at all to do with calories or exercise.

Here are the 4 ways that having 'low digestive fire' blocks weight loss...
1) poor digestion and absorption leads to nutritional deficiencies that trigger powerful cravings
2) incompletely digested food particles break down into opiate like chemicals that trigger food addiction.
3)...

If you could lose weight w/o dieting, would you?

If you could would you.jpg
Do you secretly want to lose weight but haven't yet put your energy there because you sense that diets are not the answer and it seems they don't work anyway?

If you think that, you would be right.

97% of dieters who lose weight, fail to keep it off, so what is even the point?

There is no point. It is pointless.

Diets are not the answer to weight loss.

Want to liberate yourself from the diet mentality?

There is a mental paradigm that keeps people on the diet rollercoaster, despite not getting permanent results.

If you have been dieting for years, or worse for decades - the problem is in your mind.

I am not saying that the extra fat on your body is in your mind.

What I am saying is that you have a certain mindset that stops you from clearly seeing the truth.

You've been buying into half truths, outright lies and quick fixes.

You haven't been willing to face the truth about what it takes to...

My story of starvation & then salvation from 'diets'

Reverse Before and After.png

This is part of my story of how I discovered that dieting doesn't work and what actually does.

The attached photo is a reverse before and after photo.

It's more like an after, and after that photo.

I starved myself to fit into my grad dress.

This first photo of me is after having starved myself down for grad.

The second photo is at some kind of community event soon after having gained back about 15lbs.

I still remember feeling especially not good about myself that day - ashamed to be seen...

When your toddler says she's fat.

I was chatting with a lady yesterday about young girls and body image and how she had heard that my daughters dance school was well known for being a place with zero tolerance of body shaming or pressuring dancers to be a certain size.

As the mother of a thirteen year old, I was really glad to hear that my daughter's dance school had this reputation. And yet that hasn't stopped her from feeling the internal and peer pressure of wanting to be thinner.

It made me think back to a few years ago...

Want to specialize in weight loss?

Have you noticed that a lot of your clients state weight loss as a health goal?

Even before I specialized in weight loss (my back-round is in prenatal and gut health), the majority of my clients stated that weight loss was one of their goals in working together. 

That was easy for me to help them with because gut healing diets heal the liver and the gut leading to the release of weight.

Even my clients who hadn't mentioned that they wanted to lose weight were always pleasantly...

How I lost the after baby weight.

Actually I almost didn't.

Not until 15 years later!!!

This is another story of futility really. 

Before I had children I weighted 125lbs, after both babies, my weight settled at 155lbs despite no change in my diet.

I ate a whole foods vegetarian diet before I had babies, while I was pregnant and after that too. 

Despite eating healthy, I gained an astronomical amount of weight. 

Two months before I gave birth to my daughter, I was already 185lbs (I am barely 5'4).  I have...

I didn't purge, but boy did I binge.

My journey to understanding and overcoming issues with my weight started way back in high school

I struggled with my weight since I was a teenager. I am no stranger to binging, starving myself, and dieting. In fact, my friends and I used to have binging  sleepovers. We called it ‘porking out’. Honestly, I am not sure what I was more excited about - hanging out with my friends or pigging out! I remember lamenting “wouldn’t it be amazing if junk food made you...

The highest truth you've been ashamed to share.

This is part 4 of a series of articles on telling ourselves the truth. Another long one. This article is the perfect read for you if you can't figure out why you don't let yourself do the things you want to. 

In part one, I shared how to break down the bars of your own personal prison by identifying the little and not so little lies we tell ourselves - ones that keep us caged inside our problems.

In part two I shared how you can avoid the chaos of having to bomb the prison...
