Choosing The Best Detox For You

Hello there!

I am quite excited and you should too because this week, we are going to talk all about you. We would take a ride through which detoxification program or technique is right for you.

So which is best for you? Before you start any detox program, you should consult your doctor. So assuming you got a thumbs from them, which plan should you go with.

 

 

1.) Gotta Know Your WHY

First, we have to deal with our mindset. We have to identify why we want to do this. Why do you want to detox? People have different reasons.

  • Improved digestion

  • Reduced aches and pains

  • Clearer skin

  • More energy

  • Improved sex drive

  • Better sleep

  • Clearer thinking

  • Weight loss

  • Reduce cravings

  • Decrease inflammation

  • Change/improve your dietary & lifestyle change

 

2.) How Long Will It Be

To pick a suitable program, you need to have a time duration in mind. You need to know how long you want to do this. I don’t encourage cutting out food through the detox duration (maximum of three days), because when you do, you might feel great initially, but when food is reincorporated, you tend to gain the weight you lost or more!

For a seven day cleanse, eat foods that are pre-digestive and easy on the stomach. They include cooked, boiled, meat (do not fry), vegetables, and fruits (ripe). For fats, nuts and seeds are pretty would be too hard on the digestion. For healthy fats, take MCT oil which is a pre-digestion food. The fourteen day cleanse should be done just as the seven day cleanse. In this type of detox, I usually encourage incorporation of milled flax seed and this is also applicable with the twenty one day cleanse.

When using the MCT oil, you have to start slow. Make it the first smoothie of the day, one tablespoon daily. I learned this the hard way! I didn’t go slowly and I began to have cystic acne by the third day. So don’t forget, go slow with the oil.

3.)Disattach from the outcome….JUST BE

When you have your why and the end result you desire in view, you then have to forget it totally, completely detaching yourself from it. I know it might sound crazy, but it’s important.

You could start by writing on a piece of paper, and then be throwing it away. If you do this, it helps release much of the pressure you might feel because this isn’t a quick fix!

Make Your Detox “Super”

How do I get healthy? How do I keep my skin free from diseases? How do I get back in shape? These are some of the questions that detoxification can address. Cleansing your body at least every year can help you obtain more energy as well as improve your overall health. We are all surrounded by various toxic substances. We use products that could seem harmful to our health, and we are exposed to various elements such as pollution, cigarette smoke, and UV rays.

Superfoods that detox

Spirulina 

65% protein and amino acids including the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which has gotten a lot of attention for its anti-inflammatory properties. Spirulina provides a vast array of minerals, trace elements, phytonutrients, and enzymes. Spirulina is also high in Chlorophyll which helps remove toxins from the blood and boost the immune system.

 

Camu Berry

 The highest source of Vitamin C on the planet. It is great for rebuilding tissue, purifying blood, and enhancing immunity and energy. Camu berry is an immune building, and eye-nourishing superfood.

Mix camu camu powder into smoothies, juices, and protein drinks, or sprinkle a small amount over desserts and fruit.

 

Sea Vegetables (kelp, dulse, nori, hijiki, bladderwrack, chlorella)

Power packed with nutrients, sea vegetables help remove heavy metals, detoxify the body of radioactive iodine, provide numerous trace minerals, regulate immunity, and decrease the risk of cancer.

Seaweeds benefit the entire body and are especially excellent for the thyroid, immune system, adrenals, and hormone function.

 


 

4 Holistic Techniques to Detox the Body

HOLISTIC WAYS TO DETOX THE BODY

(BONUS WAY TO DETOX THE MIND)

How do I get healthy? How do I keep my skin free from diseases? How do I get back in shape? These are some of the questions that detoxification can address. Cleansing your body at least every year can help you obtain more energy as well as improve your overall health. We are all surrounded by various toxic substances. We use products that could seem harmful to our health, and we are exposed to various elements such as pollution, cigarette smoke, and UV rays.

HOW DO YOU START A DETOX?

First, lighten up your toxin load. Eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars, and saturated fats, all of which act as toxins in the body and are obstacles to your healing process. Also, minimize the use of chemical-based household cleaners and personal health care products (cleansers, shampoos, deodorants, and toothpaste), and substitute natural alternatives.

Now to help get rid of these toxins from your body, there are some detox cleansing methods that you can employ. These can help strengthen your immune system for healthier living.

Can’t watch. Instead, listen:

 

IONIC FOOT BATH

The Ionic Foot Bath is a detox water bath that cleanses, balances and enhances the bio-energy present in the body. It is basically used to increase energy (both physical and mental), vitality and stamina, at the same time, it purges (detoxifies) the body of toxins, chemicals, radiation, pollution, synthetics, and other foreign materials trapped in the tissues of the body that hinders the body’s self-cleansing mechanism. This internal cleansing includes parasite cleansing and liver detoxification, which results in less body fluid retention, reduced inflammation, improved memory, greater bladder control, a more balanced pH, a stronger immune and significant pain relief, including headaches, gout, and arthritis pain. This body cleansing process results in the correct frequency required for the body cells to return to a healthy state, and to release wastes that have been bonded to them over the years. In general, our body will feel lighter after the first session. We will think more clearly, have more energy and enjoy a greater sense of well-being.

BODY MASSAGE

Everyone enjoys having a massage, with the relaxation and tension relief it brings. Body Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, including the skin, tendons, muscles and connective tissue by a professional, for relaxation or to enhance the body’s healing capability. Body massage causes chemicals to be released into the body, which brings toxins out of your muscles. Furthermore, body massage has also been found to help the substance lymph move around, which assists in getting rid of toxins from tissues in your body.

HIMALAYAN SALT BATH

Himalayan salt is one of the purest, uncontaminated salts that are as old as the earth. Himalayan salts provide benefits when taken in a salt bath. Think of the Himalayan salt bath as a bath for the inside of your body, where it draws toxins out from the entire digestive tract. When you imagine all of the waste products trapped in your digestive system — not unlike the slime and build-up that accumulates inside a garden hose or household pipes — it makes good sense that your insides benefit from a proper washing. This mechanism is a highly effective way to expel detoxifies your body naturally of toxins and waste. From this bath, you will have better digestion, increased energy, feel like a fresher you, and even weight loss.

INFRARED SAUNA

Sauna benefit remains a positive influence on your health that has been proven by sound medical research worldwide. With an infrared sauna, the benefit goes far, far beyond relaxation. Infrared sauna benefits are much-needed in our hectic, rapid-fire society. As the body warms throughout, the heat relaxes your muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and oxygen and nutrients are delivered to tissues that are not that well supplied at other times.

 

IN CONCLUSION

It’s much easier to prevent toxification and maintain a healthy body than attempt to clean up damage that’s already been done. As in life, being proactive beats being reactive by a long shot. A holistic way of detoxing your body also involves your thought, which is your mind. Your mind is very powerful. It can help you heal every disease in your body. But it can also contribute to the contrary if you give it the power to do so. It depends on the quality of your thoughts. The more positive they are, the better you will feel.

 

 

Why and When We Should Detox the Body & Mind

 Have you ever felt tired at the end of the day? Or have had a hard time getting out of bed in the morning? Perhaps you should consider a body and mind cleansing detoxification. There is an excellent chance that excessive toxins are clogging up your system and incubating disease conditions over the long run. Many people report feeling a massive increase in their energy levels after going through a body cleansing detox program explicitly designed to remove built-up toxins from their body.

Listen:

 

One of the benefits of a body and mind detox is a significant fact that you feel a whole lot lighter when the routine is finished. You’ll be amazed when you see yourself without all those years of toxic build-up. Losing a few pounds or more is a common occurrence. Imagine the increase in your energy levels after all of these toxins and waste is often removed.

SIGNS IT’S TIME FOR A DETOX

With our world increasingly becoming toxic, the question is not if detoxing is necessary but when. It’s essential you pay proper attention and start listening to your body, and if you’re experiencing any one of these, it’s a sign that it’s time to start your detox method of choice:

  • You Experience digestive distress

This is a clear signal you need a complete diet overhaul, and detox is exactly what you need. Bloating, Constipation, diarrhea, and gas shouldn’t be happening if everything works correctly.

  • Your skin isn’t clear.

Toxin and chemical buildup doesn’t do us any favors when it comes to the health and appearance of our skin. An overload of toxins can hinder the function of your liver and lead to buildup which can creep up to the surface inform of rashes, acne, and inflammation.

  • You’re struggling with your weight.

It’s important to be healthy to lose weight, not lose weight to get healthy. The microbiome in your body is a vast pool of all various strains of bacteria, and without the proper balance of good bacteria, harmful bacteria start to take over, leading to inflammation and a slowed metabolism. Take a time-out and start healing your gut.

  • You’re constantly stressed.

Stress is a major causative factor to all sorts of health issues and can even trigger autoimmune conditions and bigger mental health problems like depression. While a food-related cleanse can also be fantastic to help relieve the physical contributors to stress, sometimes you need to put outside stimuli on mute and recharge your mental state.

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DETOX?

Body detox is like a second chance to make a fresh start that can make life worth living! Imagine what it will feel like once the toxins are gone from your body. Think of how easier it will be and a whole lot healthier, when you can process and receive the vital nutrients and vitamins it needs to function properly every day. You’ll feel much healthier and have a lot more energy for your daily activities when your body experiences optimum nutrition. Best of all, your body will be in top working shape after a body cleansing detox

Let’s hear from you! If you ever have done a type of detox, leave a comment below. What was the detox and how did you know to do it?

Looking forward to reading and hearing from all of you!

5 Foods that Increase & Decrease Energy

Hey there, Beautiful!

Have you ever found yourself saying something like, “There just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done in my life”?

Or perhaps you’re sick and tired of working so hard and never seeing results in your health.

I hear you, gorgeous!

So today’s post is ultra-practical and packed with nutrition knowledge to help you gain more energy & start seeing results. Plus, I have a special discount JUST FOR YOU lasting till the last day of the month…sign up now!

Ready to find out how?

Want to listen instead?

 

Quick reminder!

 

Before we get started in listing the top 5 Foods that Increase & Decrease our natural energy; check out “What Is Energy & How Does It Impact Our Health” video.  We discuss that we have the exact amount of energy we did. The biggest myth when thinking about the “lack of” energy, and….

ENERGY CAN NOT BE CREATED & ENERGY CAN NOT BE DESTROYED!

For more details, check out that video here!

 

5 Foods That Increase Your Energy

 

#1 All Dark Green Vegetables

Choose organic dark green vegetable; because all dark green vegetables are high in chlorophyll. (It is a pigment found in plants, which is packed with a range of powerful nutrients. It is a good source of vitamins such as vitamin A, C, E, K, and beta-carotene. It is rich in antioxidants, vital minerals such as magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium, and essential fatty acids.)

Prevents Insomnia

Chlorophyll has a calming effect on the nerves and is helpful in reducing the symptoms of insomnia, nervous irritability, and general body fatigue.

#2 Healthy EFAs (“Healthy” Fats)

Most fats are broken down slowly in the gut via a series of enzymes and eventually make their way into the bloodstream as free fatty acids.  Like sugars, once in the bloodstream free fatty acids can be used for energy (via the process known as ketogenesis) or stored in adipose (fatty) tissue for later use.

Alot of endurance athletes are swapping the bananas for coconut oil because of the longer lasting energy. Why not give it a shot?

(Make sure you find someone to guide/coach you through this process of including more fats into your diet. Let me be your guide >> coach)

More information about fats, click here.

#3 High-Quality Sources of Protein (Animal or Plant)

Protein will only act as a source of energy when there is a shortage of carbohydrates and fats — your body’s preferred sources of energy.

Eating a diet higher in protein is essential for staving off fatigue, especially early in the day when your cortisol levels are higher.  If you eat only carbohydrates, you’ll crash early and hard.

#4 Superfoods

Superfoods are basically foods that are much richer in vitamins, minerals, nutrients, electrolytes and phytonutrients, but also much poorer in calories than any other usual foods. They nourish your body on a very deep level. They’ll provide your body with a steady stream of natural energy, eliminating that afternoon slump.

According to David Wolfe; here are 8 power-packed superfoods that can help you fight fatigue.

#5 Himalayan Salt

Himalayan Salt is a unique type of sea salt mined from a region of Pakistan.  It supplies an astonishing 83 unique trace minerals.  There are 21 trace minerals that are widely agreed upon to be necessary for the body’s metabolic processes.

Himalayan pink salt is shown to create an electrolyte balance within your body, strengthen bones, lower blood pressure, and improve circulation. And therefore easy flow of natural energy throughout the body.

 

5 Foods That Decrease Your Energy

(Avoid at all possible!)

 

#1 Simple Carbohydrates

White processed bread & pasta. High sugary foods; cookies, cakes, etc.

#2 Processed Meat

Bologna, hot dogs, spam, etc.

#3 Processed foods

Look at the nutritional label! Are more than 3 ingredients? If so, that will decrease your energy.

#4 Processed Dairy

Tradition pasteurized milk, yogurt, cheese.

(Exception to fermented dairy; kefir)

#5 Omega-6 Fats

Canola oil, vegetable oil,  “partially hydrogenated.” oils

 

Core takeaway: Go Slow.

Use the “crowd out” method. Start including one the first 5 foods into your everyday life one by one. You will start to unconsciously crowd out the bottom foods to avoid.

Also, remember that having someone to coach you through the transition & who has your best interest is will make your chance of succeeding increase.

4 at Home Holistic Techniques to Increase Energy

Hey there B.E.A.Utiful! (name that movie lol)

Today we’re revealing the 4 at home holistic techniques that massively boosted your natural energy.

If you missed last week’s video; you can watch it here. And if you’re considering joining 3 month private health coaching program I have an in-depth details here and I’ll be offering 50% off the original price of the program … just for the month of March 2018. Ready to take your health tot he next level? YES!

 

So what are the 4 at home holistic techniques to increase energy?

1. Listen to music – in the morning, childhood music

Even short pieces of happy or sad music can affect us. One study showed that after hearing a short piece of music, participants were more likely to interpret a neutral expression as happy or sad, to match the tone of the music they heard. This also happened with other facial expressions, but was most notable for those that were close to neutral.

Something else that’s really interesting about how our emotions are affected by music is that there are two kind of emotions related to music: perceived emotions and felt emotions.

 

2. Smile

Smiling elevates your mood.

Because neurochemicals and peptides are released, putting a smile on your face can trick your body into raising your mood. Dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin raise your spirits and calm your nervous system.”  – TheBestBrainPossible.com

3. Go Outside

“According to the University of Rochester, studies suggest that 90 percent of people experience increased energy just by participating in activities outside. ” – Mindfulmintues.com

4. EFT Tapping

So, if you have what I call an Energy Vampire (or narcissist) in your life, Tapping can work to help you rid yourself of the beliefs that keep you stuck in your relationship and that can haunt you even after you have released an Energy Vampire from your life.” – Dr. Northrup

 

Holistic energy resources for you

Trust me, there’s still a lot of other ways or techniques you can do to increase your natural energy. Such as contacting a Reiki practitioner, (Reiki is a Japanese body relaxation technique that has healing potential) Light therapy, Hymalyia salt baths, etc. The list goes on! I want to simplify and show you just a couple quick ways you can increase your energy NOW. A great resource to visit to learn the other ways is RisingSunHolistic.com.

I know some of these techniques can be overwhelming when trying to do them all at once. My suggestion is to pick one do that one for at least 21 days and see if you feel a shift. If not, that’s okay. Now you can try the next. Remember that all of these take consistency and practice.

Have compassion for yourself when trying to maintain and “tap” (pun intended hehe) to your natural energy.

 

With Gratitude,

ANNA

Our Thoughts Have Energy

Hey there, Beautiful!

Today, we’re looking at a mindset issue that’s so fundamental, many of us don’t even think about questioning it. It’s the idea that your thoughts have energy; which can have a positive or negative effect on your health.

In reality, you can be mentally healthy has you want. You just need to be aware that we have a choice which “radio station” our thoughts operate from.

(Want to know what leaks your energy? Check the link at the end of this post for an awesome free fun sheet that will help you identify those leaks.)

Ready to start changing your thoughts’ “radio station”? Let’s do this!

 

[RECAP] What Is Energy?

www.annahilty.com/energy1

Last week’s video we talked about; what is energy?

Energy is completely subjective; different per person. Every individual has a different definition of it but there is one thing everyone; scientists and
energy healers, all agree on.

Energy cannot be destroyed nor created!

Everything has energy. If it has cells, it has energy; everything we physically see & everything that we don’t see, including our thoughts!

 

 

Where Attention Goes Energy Flows

Our thoughts are kind of like a radio waves. We’re conditioned to stay on one station, a very negative station. Our brains are millions of years old and designed to keep us alive, not to be happy.

We have the opportunity to turn the station. 

We can identify these weak links of our natural energy.

Download FREE funsheet with four simple questions that cam help identify where & when you link your energy.

[insert funsheet opt in box]

 

Our THOUGHTS & WORDS are very powerful

The ancient Romans believed that if they said a spell out loud it was more likely for that spell would work.

Attention all parents out there! (being the youngest of four) What you say to yourself especially out loud around your children really makes an impact on them.

So if you are constantly being negative to yourself around your children, they’re gonna start very negative relationship with themselves.

I don’t want that to happen.

 

Have you hit a weight loss plateau?

Everyone has the opportunity to move past any weight loss plateau and finally reach your weight loss without burnout or stress. You just have to figure out the path of least resistance for you with a private individualized attention that may break through those “walls”.

When I discovered the power of our thoughts on our health and of course weight loss, I could make decisions based on my strengths and stop fighting my weaknesses!

To get started moving through that wall/plateau, go here: Annahilty.com/coaching

And I’ll send you a personal email to arrange a date & time to start identifying your sabotages and opportunities. It’s so much fun!

NAMASTE!

What Is Energy & How It Impacts Our Health

Have you ever said to yourself, I don’t have enough energy or time? Or maybe you wonder why you are always so tired, sluggish and can’t be as fast as that guy or lady you see every day. If you have ever felt this way or said such to yourself, this month’s topic is definitely for you.

For this month, which is the national nutrition month, I am going to talk about our body’s energy in relation to our health. You’ll be getting juicy information on topics like: Thoughts and their energy, How to address energy leaks in your body, Foods that increase or decrease your energy levels and also four home based holistic techniques which would boost your body’s energy instantly! I hope you are ready for this?

 

So, Energy is a big buzz word going around in different circles, but if I may ask what it is, I’ll be getting different definitions right? To the scientist it could mean one thing, while to the energy healer or a holistic coach like me, it would mean another, but one thing is constant across every sphere:

Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. This means, our body has the exact amount of energy it needs!

The common mistake

We make when dealing with our body is that, we continuously look for external sources of energy to keep our bodies running while we leave our internal sources untapped. One common example of such external source is caffeine. I am not against taking caffeine but against its extreme use. Like when you go to Dunkin’ doughnuts and get the extra tall coffee with cream and sugar and then you take multiple of that a day. This is where the real issue lies! I am up for 8 ounces of black coffee a day which is beneficial to your body but not its chronic intake. You might not know this, but according to the FDA, caffeine is a drug. Yes it is! Have you ever tried abstaining from coffee for about a week? You might begin to experience its withdrawal symptoms like the headaches, getting crankier and the sweats. These are the exact same symptoms a drug user goes through during rehab. So, when you find yourself reaching for that fourth cup of coffee or that energy drink.

Ask yourself, Am I managing my energy effectively? Am I using my internal energy stores?

Over the next few weeks, our aim is to know if we are managing the energy we already have, to build an awareness towards things which drain our energy and which of these stressors might be subconscious. We will together understand Energy is, that we are made up of energy just like everything around us and that issues arise with our bodies when we keep looking to external sources of energy. We see this in how many fall sick on vacations. Why? There is an imbalance of energy in their bodies. They are always on the go, go, go and when they get to relax and slip into the haling state, their bodies begin to try to detox itself!

My recommendation

for you throughout this week to help keep your body in a fatigued state is to breathe.  This might sound crazy to you but it has helped me through a lot. We many times forget to breathe! So when you find yourself in such a state, take three deep breathes in and relax. You should try this during this week while you try to ease yourself off these external sources of energy slowly. Build this awareness into yourself and you’ll experience that change you seek!

 

 

The PFC Method to Lose Weight

Hey there beautiful!

We are nearing the end of February, and I don’t know about you but this month has been just so inspiring and so enlightening and I hope you learned a lot this month. This week we’re gonna be talking about my method the west’s method that I’ve heard quite a few experts and athletes use and I  know it has worked for to lose the weight.

But before we can get started  I want to tell you that because I’m so passionate about this topic of nutrition and the power of food I created a  completely free download just for you!


Now that you downloaded your free guide, let get down and dirty about today’s topic!

*Watch the video or listen to the audio

So let’s get started so the method that I believe is a very basic method. It doesn’t require counting calories, counting points, counting macronutrients or anything else.  I believe when you do all those, you’re sending the body and the brain a stress response and in my last videos I had talked about what happens when our body and our mind is in the stress response, so let’s eliminate those strategies.  that make you want to make you do that so this method doesn’t make you do that, however, This method will brighten your awareness of what you’re putting in your mouth.

The PFC Method

 

While using this method in any meal that you eat you really need to concentrate on having a high-quality protein. Whether that’s plant-based or animal protein that should be probably the number one. Protein elevates the insulin level a little bit but it will fill you up the longer the day.

Number two to focus while using the PFC method is  fats. In last week’s video ( annahilty.com/toxic/ ) we talked a lot about toxic beliefs about fats. In the first video of this month ( annahilty.com/diets/ )we broke down what are some good fats and what are some bad fats. And also a great resource to get really nitty-gritty about the science around fat and essential fatty acids is if you look up Dr. Mark Hyman; functional medicine doctor from Cleveland Clinic and Cleveland Ohio.

Finally,  the third to focus on of the PFC Method is carbohydrates.  We need carbs! I don’t know how many times I have to say that.

These three the protein fat and carbs they make up our macronutrients. They call macronutrients because we need those we need those three to survive every day we need those to survive so why if we didn’t need carbs if we if everyone went on the Atkins diet and we never ate another carb. Why if we didn’t need it why would it be considered a macronutrient?

I don’t know about you that doesn’t make much sense so a good card so I don’t like to talk about bad food and good food or anything like that but I think you’re smart enough to realize what’s a healthy carbohydrate and what’s a non-healthy carbohydrate so a simple carbohydrate would be white rice white bread white pasta. Those really spike the insulin level really spike the core zone and makes us gain more weight.

Complex carbohydrates do elevate insulin level more so if you would have a protein or fat but not as fast as the simple carbohydrates; sweet potatoes carrots any root vegetable whole grains such as a quinoa and millet. 

Real quick overview of where our focus should go…

PROTEIN – FATS – CARBOHYDRATES


Is a method that athletes use well depending on the athlete but it has worked for several people so if you’re looking for a quick fix which I am NOT a quick fix coach. If that makes perfect sense, start incorporating it into your everyday life.

Don’t forget to download your free download it so click on the link below and it will be sent directly to you again. It lists the top four popular diets and the dos the don’ts.

4 Popular Diets: Their Do’s & Don’ts + What They All Have in Common


Let’s Get Down & Dirty 

 

I am so passionate about this topic and nutrition and food play a huge part in our health if you don’t already know his which you probably already do because you’re awesome!

Among several, today we are going to talk about the top  3 Nutritional Toxic Beliefs.

  1. Calories in calories out eat less – exercise more, eat less
  2. Fat makes me fat
  3. Protein will make me look like a bodybuilder

Okay so I’m gonna break down each and explain why they are toxic, why they not true (they’re a complete myth),  and why it’s so hard to break.


  1. Calories and calories out

This belief started many many many years ago they were researching exercise and they were prioritizing exercise over food and they were seeing some results. The problem is when you deprive ourselves with food and we exercise more, depriving ourselves with food it was putting our body in the starvation mode it holds on to the weight and the cravings started & puts us in the sympathetic nervous system the stress stage.

“In November 1944, 36 young men took up residence in the corridors and rooms of the University of Minnesota football stadium. They were not members of the football team. Rather, they were volunteers preparing for a nearly yearlong experiment on the psychological and physiological effects of starvation. Known as the Minnesota Starvation Experiment, the study was a project of the newly established Laboratory of Physiological Hygiene at the University of Minnesota, an interdisciplinary research institution with an emphasis on nutrition and human biology.”

The exercise part when you over exercise. Breaking down muscles and then resting (HIIT) actually builds more and stronger muscles *more muscle mass equal burning more weight. We must REST! Chronic exercising it your body and never resting again leads the body to the stress stage….hold on to stubborn belly fat.

Have you experienced this? leave a comment below.

2. Fat makes me fat

This belief is one of the biggest debated nutritional topics. The 80s there was a big movement of don’t eat any fat; everything was fat-free. They’re finding now that those who were chronically on a very low-fat diet are actually having neurological disorders such as MS or Alzheimer’s.

 

Okay, so how does that have to do with your weight loss? Weight loss has a lot to do with our hormones. Essential fatty acids, such as
good fats omega-3s & omega 9s. The entire endocrine system needs EFAs to fully function correctly.

Also, healthy fats are a long strain of energy; carbohydrates spikes that cortisol and crashes, protein lifts a little bit  but for the most part keeps a pretty level. If you’re having energy problems and weight problems then you definitely need healthy fats.

3. Protein is going to make me look like a bodybuilder

I heard this a lot when I was in bodybuilding I heard this alot. Male bodies and female bodies metabolize things completely differently. male bodies metabolize protein certain types of protein differently than female bodies. One source of animal protein metabolizes completely different than plant-based protein. Okay so it will help you build muscle absolutely but it will not turn bodybuilder.

Lets clear one thing up there is a difference between high-quality protein and low-quality protein. Those protein powders in a big container are awful for you, just awful.

 


Why Is It So Hard?!

 

So, why is it so damn hard to disengage because from these beliefs? Because they’re ingrained in our belief system is into our subconscious mind and our mind. And our subconscious mind is responsible for about 95% of what we do and think.

I know that doesn’t sound very encouraging um but the first step of breaking any belief is to…first to question that belief.
