Why You Should Avoid Fructose for Weight Loss…

Tea Photo

The U.S. celebrates the official kick-off of summer with a special Memorial Day Weekend.

In case you didn’t know, this ‘holiday’, which commemorates those who’ve fallen in the armed forces, is also synonymous with barbeques and outdoor get-togethers.

And if you’re trying to remain healthy this weekend and fight disease, you may be tempted to skip the yummy grilled feasts and stick to salads.

But this is NOT always the best way to lose weight and stay healthy during your celebrations.  Here’s why…

1.  Avoid This Food To Lose Weight This Weekend…

Some people load up on salads and fruit to ‘diet’ during the barbeques.

Well in a minute – you’ll see why this is absolutely NOT the way to go.  In fact, it may be just the OPPOSITE of what you should to to lose more weight this weekend.

You see, sugar is uniquely fattening to your body.

But sugar is called by many names.

Glucose is produced by our bodies, and we need it to live.

Fructose, however, is not a natural part of your metabolism, and the only part of your body that can make use of it is liver cells.  When you eat fructose, it gets metabolized by your liver, turned into fat, and then secreted into the blood.

2.  Why You Must AVOID Fructose…

Fructose causes insulin resistance.

What does that mean?  Well, insulin is a hormone used to regulate your metabolism and energy use.  It sends a signal to your cells to dictate how we use glucose for energy.

Insulin levels spike when we eat a high-carbohydrate meal because the excess glucose is actually toxic.  When you’re insulin response is healthy, your blood glucose remains steady.

However, when your cells become resistant to insulin, your blood glucose spikes to toxic levels without the ability to drive out the excess glucose.  This causes insulin resistance; which is likely to lead to fat storage… and even diabetes!

Fructose is known to spike insulin levels.  What’s more, fructose can cause your brain to think your still hungry when you’re already exceeded the calories you need; which causes even more weight gain.

How To Avoid Fructose This Weekend…

You find fructose in a myriad of different foods; from ketchup to salad dressings to ‘diet’ yogurts or ‘fat-free’ products.

Fructose isn’t just empty calories, but it causes major fat storage, and even toxicity to your diet.

Remember when I said that loading up on the salad, fruit, or accoutrements this weekend may be the WORST way to go?

Well I created this awesome chart this morning to explain why:

The Best Way To Boost Your Metabolism This Weekend…

As you can see, most of the list consists of BEVERAGES that you may be tempted to consume this weekend.

DON’T!

Instead, keep Slimming Tea in your home at all times.

You can add Stevia and lemons to make Slimming Tea lemonade, or add cucumbers for a hydrating, refreshing Slimming Iced Cucumber Tea.

Slimming Tea is the BEST way to keep on your healthy eating and weight loss plan this weekend.

It helps you to:

Slimming Tea is low in caffeine, so the whole family can enjoy it’s detoxifying and antioxidant benefits.

Add lemon or turmeric for extra cancer fighting power; as the catechins (a special antioxidant found in Slimming Tea) are cancer-crushing powerhouses.

Don’t blow your diet with ‘health foods’ this weekend, or beverages that blow up your waistline… and spike your insulin levels!

Drink Slimming Tea to promote your health… and your beach body today!

Gourmet Leftover Recipes That Torch Fat!

There are few things I love more than opening my fridge, putting a fork into something yummy – and not having to start a new meal every time I’m hungry!

“Meal prep”, or making meals in advance, is a killer way to keep yourself on the fat-loss bandwagon.

One of my FAVORITE tricks for fat-loss meal preparation is to cook extra food with every meal that will be great for leftovers!

That way, every time you open your fridge – you already have healthy, fat-burning foods ready to go!

Here are just a few I made this week!

The Best Leftover Chicken Recipe [Breakfast]

I LOVE roasted chicken.  It’s tender, protein-packed, and works great in almost anything for leftovers.

The other night I ate at an Italian restaurant.  I skipped the breaded Veal Saltimbocca and creamy Penne Scallopini and wait straight for the BEST food on the menu for weight loss.

Salad?  No way!  It was the roasted chicken with lightly steamed vegetables.

Did you know that vegetables are often MORE bioavailable (more nutritious in your body because of how it breaks them down) when lightly steamed as opposed to raw?  Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE raw food!

The restaurant, true to Italian form (Mangia, Mangia Familia Mia!) served me an ENTIRE chicken on a plate.

Before my first bite, I already salivated over the breakfast tacos I’d make in the morning.

Here’s what I proceeded to do in the a.m…

1.  Slimming Breakfast Burrito (Gluten-Free, Dairy Free, Primal and Protein PACKED)

Breakfast Taco with Protein Salad

Ingredients:  Rudi's yummy tortillas

  • 1/2 Roasted Chicken, shredded off the bone
  • Leftover shredded gourds & carrots
  • 6 Cage-Free Organic Eggs
  • 4  Rudi’s Gluten-Free Tortillas
  • 1 Jalepeno, seeded
  • Green Onion
  • Fresh, organic salsa (*preferably NOT from a jar or can… where chemicals can seep into the food due to tomatoes’ acidity and BPA!)
  • Leftover salad from previous day’s lunch 😉  [recipe below]

 

Directions:

  1. Saute vegetables until desired texture and just heat the chicken up enough so it doesn’t dry out
  2. Lightly Scramble Eggs with Salsa and Green Onion and put on tortilla while still warm
  3. Top with chicken and any additional green onion or jalepeno that you want to spice up the taco with.
  4. This plate has my special ‘Leftover Salad’ that I make in enormous batches, which I’ll detail below!

2.  Leftover Super-Salad [Lunch]

Prosciutto Salad Recipe

Periodically I serve a protein-packed appetizer of fresh dates rolled in Prosciutto for a snack when I have guests over.

For dinner, I used some leftover Prosciutto-wrapped dates for my Protein-Packed Super-Salad!

 

Ingredients:

  • Mixed Organic Greens
  • Red Cabbage
  • Baby Spinach
  • Red Cabbage
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Raw Walnuts (a better crunch than croutons!)
  • Dill, tarragon, or favorite delicious herb

Dressing:

  • Homemade dressing is two parts EVOO, one part organic (no sulfites, no added sugars) balsamic, one part garlic Dijon mustard.
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Mix all the ingredients but *do not dress*.

If you dress the salad, it will get soggy in the morning.

I used the prosciutto-wrapped dates on top of the salad that were leftover from ‘appetizers’.

This salad is packed with some of the world’s healthiest foods.

Prosciutto Wrapped Dates

Health Benefits of Protein Super-Salad…

  • Hemp seeds are a SUPER food packed with Omega-3’s and 10g of protein per serving.
  • Mixed greens are *29% Protein* and only 9 calories per cup.
  • Red Cabbage  I add red cabbage because it’s incredibly powerful for lowering cholesterol and it’s loaded with Vitamin K.  In order to get the full nutrient benefit of red cabbage, eat raw or lightly steamed.  Red cabbage is also linked to prevention of colon, prostate, and bladder cancer; plus it’s rich in Vitamin K.  Vitamin K is also found in kale.  In fact, you can receive up to 1108% of your daily recommended value of Vitamin K from Kale.  Vitamin K comes from the German word for blood clotting – koagulation.  K works to make promote blood and bone health, as well.  Plus, Vitamin K is ONLY found in Vegetables – so if you aren’t eating your veggies – you may become Vitamin K deficient!
  • Walnuts are another great source of Omega-3’s and they are also powerful in weight loss and prevention of cardiovascular disease.

This salad stores great in the fridge until morning, when it’s paired great with breakfast.

What?!  No salad for breakfast?

Dr. Davis, author of one of my all-time favorite books “Wheat Belly”, says that one should, “…consider having “dinner for breakfast,” meaning transferring salads, cheese, chicken, and other “dinner” foods to breakfast” … in order to lose weight.

3.  Dandelion Greens with Bacon & Mushrooms [Dinner]

Dandelion Greens From Breakfast Leftovers

I LOVE dandelion greens, and they’re insanely healthy.

They’re higher in calcium than even any dairy product; one cup of dandelion greens has 103 milligrams of calcium – which is 10% of your daily value.

The trick to this delicious leftover masterpiece is to cook a little extra bacon and mushrooms – ANY time you make bacon or mushrooms!

Both bacon and mushrooms can be added to just about anything – and a little goes a long way in flavor.

Ingredients:

  • “Leftover” crispy bacon from breakfast
  • “Leftover” sauteed mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 bunch dandelion greens
  • Coconut oil

Benefits of Dandelion Greens

Directions:

  1. Soak greens in water for 10 minutes
  2. Boil greens for 10 minutes in pot with a touch of salt
  3. Saute garlic in coconut oil and heat up leftover bacon and mushrooms once the garlic is desired texture.  In picture I minced the garlic – but sometimes I slice it into slivers and let them brown a bit so that they appear like toasted slivered almonds.
  4. Mix in the dandelion greens and saute for approximately 5 minutes.
  5. Serve while warm!

4.  Slimming Tea Sweet Potato Soup [Dinner]

Carrot Ginger Sweet Potato Soup

I love soup in a crazy way.

You can eat a variety of soups for weight loss, especially raw soups, chicken broth soups, bone broth soups, and vegetable purees.

I *always* add Slimming Tea to my soup broths.  The flavor is delicate and it can be added without taking your traditional soup recipe off balance.

One of my all-time favorite soups is a sweet potato, carrot ginger soup.

This makes for amazing leftovers – and it last several days in the fridge.

PLUS – I almost *always* have a half a bag of baby carrots and a couple sweet potatoes lying around.

I virtually always have Slimming Tea and Ginger – which I use for juices and smoothies in the morning.

That’s why this soup makes my leftover Fat-Loss Feast Favorites.

Health Benefits of Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Baby Carrots
  • 2 Large Sweet Potatoes
  • 2 Cups Slimming Tea Broth (Slimming Tea steeped in Chicken Stock)
  • 1 Large White Onion
  • Garlic to taste (I often use an entire BULB!)
  • Cumin
  • 2 Jalapenos, seeded
  • Aged Parmesean to garnish

Directions:

  1. Saute garlic and onions until onions are translucent.  Added seeded jalapenos.
  2. Bloom cumin by heating for 1 minute with a teaspoon of olive oil in a pan.
  3. Boil Sweet potatoes, onions, jalapenos, garlic and carrots with Slimming Tea and 1 quart Chicken Stock (I make Slimming Tea stock by boiling chicken thighs and legs in Slimming Tea and filtered water.)
  4. Once potatoes are soft, blend in blender.  This gives the soup a yummy, frothy consistency.
  5. Now simmer for one hour in pot with cumin.
  6. Salt and pepper to taste and garnish with aged Parmesan.Do This Every Day

I love to add dandelion greens to my Slimming Tea Carrot-Ginger-Sweet Potato Soup!

Sometimes I add raw vegetables to my soup leftovers and heat them for 5 minutes in a pan to make a sort of soup primavera.

The delicate, floral flavor of Slimming Tea really gives this soup a special kick!

My Fat-Burning Super-Secret Ingredient…

Using Slimming Tea to drink – or added to foods – is VERY powerful for weight loss.

Slimming Tea helps oxidize fat in your body, which aids in weight loss.

It also suppresses your appetite… AND regulates insulin levels so that you will feel satiated all day long.

This helps many Slimming Tea Drinkers with portion control, and many report cutting up to 300 calories per meal with the addition of Slimming Tea in their diet.

What’s more – did you know that often when you find yourself having a carb-craving for pretzels, chips, popcorn, or delicious pasta fazole leftovers in your fridge, you may actually be just THIRSTY?

Next time you feel like you’re going to have a snack attack… or eat more than you should, try Slimming Tea!

Powerful antioxidants called “catechins” and “polyphenols” are uniquely high in Slimming Tea.

Plus, Slimming Tea has NO artificial chemicals or pesticides!

In China, people call Slimming Tea a “Crane Among Chickens”, and even pay up to $300 per kilogram for it!

No Chemicals No Artificial Colors

The Doctor Is In…

Over 37 Scientific Studies provide ample evidence as to Slimming Tea’s weight loss effects.

  • Dr. Nicholas Perricone, MD, FACN, states that, “…you’d lose up to 10 pounds in 4-6 weeks doing nothing but taking green tea. Green tea increases your daily fat burning rate by 4343%.”
  • CBS reported that polyphenols in Slimming Tea are believed to increase Energy Expenditure for up to a 43% INCREASE in fat-burning!
  • Burn More Calories – The University of Tokushima School of Medicine discovered that people who regularly consume Slimming Tea experienced more than double the calorie-burning results of green tea
  • Crave Less Carbs – The Suntory Research Center in Osaka found that drinking Slimming Tea 15 minutes before eating helps eliminate carb cravings by reducing the insulin spike you get after eating carbs; which translates to LESS stored fat!

Start with one cup of Slimming Tea, steeped for 4-7 minutes, before breakfast to get your metabolism revved up for the day.  Then drink another cup before lunch to eliminate carb cravings and help you maintain awesome energy all day long – while burning 240 MORE calories per day than green tea!

It also helps:

  • Lower your blood sugar
  • Improve Energy Levels
  • Decrease fat storage
  • Boost your mood
  • Burn 240 more calories per day than green tea…

What’s more – did you know that often when you find yourself having a carb-craving for pretzels, chips, popcorn, or delicious pasta fazole leftovers in your fridge, you may actually be just THIRSTY?

Next time you feel like you’re going to have a snack attack… or eat more than you should, try Slimming Tea.

Stay Fit While Traveling… In Just 7 Minutes Per Day!

http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photography-jump-health-youth-image16806007

Jumping Rope – It’s Not Just Super-Fun When You’re a Kid… It Keeps You Lean and Mean as an Adult, too!

Stay Slim While Traveling… in Just 7 Minutes!

Here’s a riddle for you:

What are THREE items you can travel with that fit in an average ladies’ purse…

That burn fat better than running an 8-minute mile…

And provide you with a FULL-BODY workout and detoxification in just 7 minutes per day?

People ask me almost daily how I can stay in such good shape and still travel up to 3 weeks per month.  Let me tell you – it’s easy!  But it hasn’t always been!

For a long time, the traveling destroyed me.

I’d come home from vacation or a convention feeling about 10 pounds heavier.  I was bloated, overweight, having digestive troubles, and I never found time to workout.

Gyms and diet membership programs have made you think that a healthy lifestyle is contingent on hours of workouts, tedious diet plans, or even calorie-counting… yuck!

If you’re like me, you have spent thousands of hours on elipticals, yoga mats, cardio machines, and bicycles.

… Only to blow away all your hard work – and money- once you travel.

Not anymore.

Here are my 3 BEST Tricks for staying fit while jetsetting…

1.  Jumping Rope…

I got my jumprope for less than $20.  It’s light, portable, and can be used virtually anywhere you have a flat surface and a sky above your head.  (Or high ceilings)

Try to jump rope for 7 minutes in sets of 30-second intervals.  Trust me – it’s a lot harder than you think if it’s been a few years since you jumped rope!

Here’s what it looks like:

30 Seconds Jumping Rope

30 Seconds Rest

Repeat 7 Times!

Jumping rope torches calories.  In fact, you’d have to run an 8-minute mile to work off more calories than you burn jumping rope!

Peter Schulman, MD, associate professor of Cardiology at the University of CT Health Center, says of jumping rope, “It strengthens the upper and lower body and burns a lot of calories in a short time…”  But he warms that it’s important to ask your doctor to make sure your heart is up to the challenge!

To lighten stress on joints, jump rope on an exercise mat.  

2.  Push Ups…

I have always been a HUGE fan of cut, shapely arms.   For men and women alike – this can be a HUGE problem area!

_______

(Did you know that some Japanese studies have shown that
Slimming Tea reduces arm fat?!)  <<<—- Take up to 47% OFF TODAY!!!  
_______

So to cut out YOUR shapely arms, try to do 3 sets of 20 pushups.

When you get *really* good, try 3 sets of 30, or even 3 sets of 40!   Rest approximately 2 minutes in between sets.

And when you’re *really* good, you can do sets of handstand pushups, side-to-side pushups, and even narrow or wide-spaced pushups.

Here’s what your pushups look like:

20 Pushups

2 Minutes Rest

Repeat 3 Times

3.  Burn Fat Without The Workout?…

If you’re in a hotel or a guest in somebody’s home, it’s not easy to travel with your favorite juicer or blender.

But you can ALWAYS find a way to get hot water for your Slimming Tea, even in restaurants!

Here are just a few ways that Slimming Tea will help you burn fat – without hours of boring cardio at the gym!

  • Increase Energy Expenditure – CBS reported that polyphenols in Slimming Tea are believed to increase Energy Expenditure for up to a 43% INCREASE in fat-burning!
  • Burn More Calories – The University of Tokushima School of Medicine discovered that people who regularly consume Slimming Tea experienced more than double the calorie-burning results of green tea
  • Crave Less Carbs – The Suntory Research Center in Osaka found that drinking Slimming Tea 15 minutes before eating helps eliminate carb cravings by reducing the insulin spike you get after eating carbs; which translates to LESS stored fat!

Start with one cup of Slimming Tea, steeped for 4-7 minutes, before breakfast to get your metabolism revved up for the day.  Then drink another cup before lunch to eliminate carb cravings and help you maintain awesome energy all day long – while burning 240 MORE calories per day than green tea!

How To Eat Carbs And STILL Lose Weight…

Carbs are a scary word when you’re trying to lose weight.

Either you’re afraid of them – which gives them undue power over your mind and body.  Or you are scared to live without them – which means you may have an addiction to carbs or sugar.

Well it’s funny.  In recent years I’ve become obsessed with finding easy food ‘tricks’ to allow me to enjoy the foods I love without suffering the effect on my thighs later.

I’ve overcome my fear of carbs, and especially my fear of fats.

Here are 3 of the tricks I swear by to keep my body tight, lean, and fit all year round…

1.  Don’t Eat Carbs By Themselves…

I don’t down a bag of pretzels when I’m too busy to grab lunch.

Nor do I opt for a ‘low-fat’ poppyseed muffin at Starbucks to avoid the fatty plate of cheeses and meats in the case.

I’d go for the meat and cheese plate because it won’t spike my insulin levels… and I stay fuller, longer!

Plus, low-fat foods are often full of sugar, carbs, and nasty chemicals.

So the cheese and meat plate may be a better option than the poppyseed muffin.  It will have similar calorie count, but less carbs, less sugar, and less insulin-spike!

Plain bagel?  Just because you cut the cream cheese doesn’t make it okay!  Try having half the bagel and some high-protein or vegetable alongside your meal.

Many fruits and vegetables are high in fiber which makes you feel more full after eating them.  Instead of toast and bagels, try just having eggs and greens or eggs with lentils or quinoa.

For weight loss, you will often find that high-FAT foods are much better for you than low-fat, high carb foods!  When you eat high-carb foods by themselves, they spike your insulin levels and turn into sugar in your body.

Foods with MORE fat help you feel fuller longer.  In fact, many people who have a high-fat diet experience hours – even up to 36 hours at a stretch, feeling satiated with no hunger pains!  You should ask your doctor before doing any fasting, of course.

Some of my favorite high-fat foods for weight loss include:

  • Hemp Seeds
  • Chia Seeds
  • Fresh (not farm-raised) Salmon
  • Raw Walnuts or Almonds

But above all, the #1 reason high-fat foods are good for your weight loss goal is that they don’t spike your blood sugar!

2.  Mix Protein In With Carbs…

To lose weight, it’s important that you pair your carbs with protein.  Ditch half your plate of pasta and focus on seeds, nuts, fish, chicken or beef with your meal.

When you have variety in your meals, you actually slow down the rate at which sugar is released into your blood.  Plus, protein causes you to release the hormone glucagon.  Glucagon fights fat AND the insulin rush you’d normally get eating carbs by themselves.

Replacing carbohydrates with meat, eggs, nuts, seeds, and greens is the way to go.  And don’t worry if you aren’t a meat-eater.  Did you know that vegetables have more protein per gram than animal meat!  To pack in the most vegetables, try blending them in your blender or juicing them.

You can add chia seeds to your coffee, replace toast with Canadian Bacon, or even replace croutons with raw nuts on a salad!

3.  Drink Slimming Tea BEFORE You Eat Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner

Unless you’re on a temporary crash diet, carbs WILL be a part of your daily life.

Perhaps it’s a bit of pasta or a sandwich with bread.  Or maybe it’s an apple or other piece of fruit.  Carbs in moderation can still be used to lose weight.

But you must avoid consuming more calories than you need to; the mindless munching mode; or carb cravings.  Your body isn’t satiated so you keep consuming more and more calories without ever feeling full.

Carbs are so dangerous to your healthy diet plan!  (Pretzels are my weakness.  Also popcorn, cous-cous, chicken noodle soup… aiy-yai-yai!)  You get the point.

However, drinking Slimming Tea BEFORE a meal can help blast away carb cravings so that you will feel satiated and not consume the extra 1, 2, or even 300 calories in mindless carb munching per meal.

Plus, Slimming Tea helps to:

  • Lower your blood sugar
  • *Decrease fat storage
  • *Increase insulin sensitivity
  • *Oxidize MORE fat…

What’s more – did you know that often when you find yourself having a carb-craving for pretzels, chips, popcorn, or delicious pasta fazole leftovers in your fridge, you may actually be just THIRSTY?

Next time you feel like you’re going to have a snack attack… or eat more than you should, try Slimming Tea.

It’ll kill the carb cravings, hydrate your body, and even help you oxidize fat from your thighs, arms, and belly!

How "Cheat Meals" Can Help You LOSE Weight…

It’s Not Cheating If You Play By THESE Rules…

We all do it.  And if you’re anything like me, it usually happens on the weekends…

I’m talking about “cheating”. Not cheating on your partner – cheating on your weight loss plan.

Perhaps it’s ice cream, pasta alfredo from your favorite Italian restaurant, or – as my husband and I discovered last night- the warm comfort and joy of a buttery homemade chicken pot pie.

Well I’m here to put the myth of cheating to bed.  That’s right – you can still eat delicious, rich, fatty and salty foods and lose weight.  I did it, and so can you.

Here are my top 4 tips to beat the ‘cheat’ food guilt and weight gain…

1.  Reframe Your Brain…

Cheating is the act of dishonesty in order to get ahead in a game.  Cheating on your weight loss plan implies that you are cheating your body in the game of health.

Instead of looking at cheating as a negative thing, look at your overindulgence as a well-deserved treat. Or even a reward!

That’s right, take the word “cheating” out of your vocabulary.  Right now.

You are more powerful than the foods you eat.  They do not control you.  So don’t give them names like ‘mistress’ or ‘cheat foods’.  Rather call them treats, or even indulgences.  Calling them cheat foods elevates them too much in your mind.

Once you take the power away from your bagel and cream cheese or ice cream sundae, you can set new rules for the game.

Here are a few of the ‘rules’ I set in my own personal “health game”.

  1. Enjoy ice cream periodically, but never eat the low-fat kind.  It’s usually full of sugar – which is much worse for your body than fat from cream.  I try to stick to organic, full-fat, low sugar ice cream when I choose to reward myself with a dessert treat.
  2. Go ahead and have a pasta meal, but stick to gluten-free quinoa pasta, or replace noodles with zucchini noodles, sweet potato noodles, or another delicious noodle alternative that doesn’t have carbs, nor gluten.  Now I can enjoy rich, meaty, hearty tomato sauce without the extra empty calories and carbs from pasta!
  3. Keep salty snack hacks on-hand.  I am a sucker for popcorn, beef jerky, and mixed nuts.  But instead of microwave popcorn (eew!  read about how terrible microwave popcorn is here.), roasted nuts, or processed nitrate-ridden beef jerky, I get jerky from US Wellness Meats that’s free from chemicals and stick to raw nuts.  Periodically I’ll spray a bit of oil on them and some salt if I’m really having a salty snack attack.  But by eliminating the processed foods from my plan, my snack attack is much healthier!

2.  Don’t Panic!

This is one of the most important things you can learn: when you cheat, don’t panic!    First of all, you aren’t likely going to gain weight from a single fattening meal or one night of too much wine.

…But the stress you put on your body will cause you to store fat and spike cortisol levels!  Healthy eating is a marathon, not a sprint.

And a healthy lifestyle is NOT a diet – your goal is to live healthy for the rest of your life.   The problem with a diet is that you restrict things that you love and live a life of denial.   Instead of living in constant denial, allow yourself little rewards along the way.  This way you will NEVER diet, but you will ALWAYS live a balanced life with a few indulgences along the way!

Perhaps you know you’re going to indulge tonight.  Work out a little harder this afternoon and tomorrow morning switch the bacon and eggs and toast for a detoxifying green juice and cup of Slimming Tea.   Slimming Tea’s powerful antioxidants will help you get back on your track to health in no time!  <<<SAVE $10 on Slimming Tea Capsules TODAY!<<<<<<

Now that you have a plan, and you’re in control, you can enjoy your night and eliminate stress.  Moreover, the panic that accompanies the myth of cheating causes people to toy around with unhealthy behaviors – such as starving themselves as a punishment, purging food, or even unhealthy exercise habits to ‘counteract’ the food.

Remember that you would need to eat an additional 3,500 calories to gain 1 pound of body fat.  It’s very unlikely that you will gain a single pound off of one cheat meal or a couple glasses of wine.

3.  Beware of the “Domino” Effect…

Stressing about your extra slice of pecan pie will more likely lead to weight gain than the actual calories in the pie.    But there is another sneaky problem with your guilt-trips, ‘cheating’ mentality, or panic attacks.

They’re not FAIR to you.  You are so incredible and your choice to watch what you eat and drink to live a longer, happier, healthier life is marvelous.  Congratulations to you!

But when your mind tells you that you’re fat, that you’re wrong, that you’re out of control; you manifest that negativity into your eating plan.  And you keep blowing your diet.

Nobody is perfect all the time.  So each time you indulge, look at the next time you’re hungry as a way to get back on track.  Keep your favorite healthy treat in the house – a cup of cherries (which are very low glycemic!) or endive slathered in organic hummus.  And by all means – don’t Domino with MORE sugary or carb-laden calories!

4.  Suppress Your Appetite Naturally…

If you overdid the carbs and sugar last night, today you can get back on track very easily. Simply take one Slimming Tea Capsule before breakfast, and another before lunch.

Slimming Tea capsules help regulate insulin levels and suppress your craving for additional sugary, carb-laden, or grain-based foods.

The average American eats approximately 570 MORE calories than they did in the 1970’s according to the US Dept. of Agriculture and the CDC.

But did you know that Slimming Tea capsules help your body burn up to 523 MORE calories every single day?

They’re twice as powerful as Slimming Tea, but they still have less than 65% the caffeine of a cup of coffee!

Read about how you can use Slimming Tea Capsules to lose weight fast and curb your cravings here. <<<<<<

And this weekend – don’t succumb to guilt and panic.  Know that YOU are in control of your life and your body.  And sometimes, you deserve a little treat, without feeling like you’re ‘cheating’ yourself.  Now go out there and ‘treat’ yourself smart!

Capsules are 100% Slimming Tea in concentrated form.  They’re more than 5 TIMES as powerful as green tea!  (And they’re really easy to keep in your bag at all times!)

Can Tea Enhance Your Sex Drive?

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photos-young-beautiful-couple-image27333663

Can Tea Increase Your Sex Drive?

I can be a bit shy when discussing love and sexuality with my newletter readers….

But I just ran across some research that really fascinates me.
If you’re like me, it seems like everywhere you turn people are making excuses for why they don’t have the romantic relationships or intimacy they want, or once had.

A day turns into a week, which turns in to a month… and couples grow further apart.

Reasons For Romance Lulls…

There a lot of reasons why people lose the romance in their relationships.

One major reason can be depression.

Another may be a lack of confidence.

Exhaustion is another huge reason people site for low sex drive and romantic lulls.

And children and work seem to always provide an excuse for people.

But there is an unbelievable way to promote a healthy romantic life, with none other than Slimming Tea!

An Unlikely Romance Savior…

It isn’t as sexy as chocolate covered strawberries or a glass of champagne, but Slimming Tea is actually really good for your love life!

Catechins, the same antioxidants that help you fight cancer, are in enormous proportion in Slimming Tea.

And catechins actually promote blood flow all over your body, which enhances your sex drive!

They also boost brain power, enhance memory, improve your mood, help you focus…

All of these things can help lift your depression or blues, which helps you acheive greater intimacy with your partner.

In addition, Slimming Tea has no sugar, chemicals, or high fructose corn syrup.

All of those added ingredients in sodas, sweetened teas, and bottled beverages actually lower your body’s ability to produce endorphins, which can hurt your mood, as well as your sex life.

Drink To Your Health… And Your Love Life!

This weekend, if you’re feeling blue, drink a cup of Slimming Tea to help boost your mood naturally.

And if you have the chance to share a romantic day or evening with your partner, put down the sugary drinks and make a cup of Slimming Tea.

You can enjoy it iced, or hot.  It even tastes great with mint, cinnamon, or your favorite floral herbs.

Read more about how Slimming Tea can boost your mood, and enhance your sex drive here. <<<<

Summer is upon us and there’s nothing more refreshing than Iced Slimming Tea!

Use low-glycemic fruits like cherries or cancer-fighting pomegranate to sweeten your Slimming Tea without the added chemicals.

Can Tea Actually Harm Your Body?

Danger And Hazard Sign

A doctor wrote our support team this morning with a very important question.

Simply put, he wants to know if our tea’s quality can be assured although it comes from China, where many other teas that have dangerous toxins come from.

I’m really grateful when people ask about this.

And I understand that there has been a lot of research involving popular teas and their disasterously high levels of chemicals, fake ingredients, flavoring, GMO’s, and even fertility-sabotaging toxins!

Why You Should Avoid Certain “Grocery Store” Teas…

You don’t want to drink chemicals for a variety of reasons.

They can cause:

    • Neurological damage
    • Infertility
    • Hormonal Damage
    • Damage to immune system
    • Poor sleep
    • Anxiety
    • Weight Gain

A few months ago when I had the opportunity to join the Okuma Nutritionals team, the first thing I did was to have tests done on our tea.

Here are the results:

Covnance_test

The Highest Quality Tea…

Thankfully, the tests came back exactly as I’d hoped.

Slimming Tea was tested by an independent third party in late December 2013; and came back with a clean bill of chemical health.

As you’ll see in the magnified findings below, when a laboratory conducted a multi-residue screen; our tea and tea capsules came back with an untraceable (or “Below Limits of Quantification”) report.

The best part?  

I made sure I understood the findings and went back to the representative at the

laboratory.  Here’s what he said:

“In regards to the “Below LOQ” result, each particular test has a specific limit of quantitation (LOQ) where results below a certain level are unable to be quantitated…  When this occurs, we report the “below LOQ” or a “< mg per 100g” (for example) result to signify this.  Essentially, this can be read and treated as a 0 for the result.”

tim below loq 2

It’s no secret that a TON of popular teas… and especially when coming from China… have been reported to have pesticides or toxins on the tea… or even on the bags!

While some grocery store teas are touted for their amazing health benefits… they often contain icky pesticides that seep into every cup you steep.

Eew!

Why Is Slimming Tea So Pure in Quality?

Slimming Tea comes from one of the world’s best tea plantations, high in the mountaintops of China’s Anxi Province.

The Chinese call Slimming Tea a “Black Dragon”, “A Crane Among Chickens”, and “High Mountain Tea”.

It is also grown in a protected UNESCO World Heritage preserve.

This limits the amount of ‘chemical’ imprint that it could be exposed to.

Not All Organic Food Is “Organic”…

Did you know that even “organic” foods often contain pesticides?

That’s often due to dirty water used on the crops…

…Or even wind blowing environmental toxins into organic crops from non-organic crops.

However, because Slimming Tea comes from a high altitude plantation, it’s not exposed to the same environmental toxins as most other teas!

It’s even been called “MEDICINAL GRADE” in China!

Results…

To answer your question Dr., and so many other delightful Slimming Tea drinkers…

Not all things from China are riddled with toxins.

And not many teas are like Slimming Tea!

Slimming Tea is pure, clean, and loaded with disease-fighting antioxidants.

And if it’s getting a bit hot for tea, we’ve consolidated all the Slimming Goodness into a capsule, as well!

You can find Slimming Tea Capsules here.

By the way…

Did you know that certain teas can cause your body to retain toxins in your blood and fat cells?

These toxin can make you overweight… and even damage your brain.

Slimming Tea is safe from these nasty chemicals.

Read why here. (And order capsules while they’re back in stock!)

Why Additives “Add Pounds”…

You may not think that that sip of Diet Soda or one measly energy drink is harming you.  I’m tired of hearing friends and family complain of working out and eating healthy, but constantly gaining weight.  Well if you think that you’re consuming chemicals that are sabotaging your efforts, then you had better read THIS… because the truth is less than savory than you think…

Why Additives “Add” Pounds… and Endanger Your Health!

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-dropper-medicine-chemistry-concept-image9607731

Did you know that more than 60% of US adults are considered obese??

For decades, food manufacturer’s have been putting “additives” in foods and beverages to help increase shelf life, make them taste better, and to help the foods have less calories from fat and sugar.

At the same time, an “Obesity Epidemic” began that has intensified to the point that more than 60% of US adults are considered overweight and nearly 1/3 of children are obese.

Coincidence?  Not even close…

The truth is that only are food/drink additives likely to add pounds to your waistline, they can also endanger your health and put you at risk for serious medical problems in the future!

Ok, so how is this even possible and why aren’t food companies doing something about this problem?

As to how additives are causing unwanted weight gain and potential medical problems, the answer is Biology.

Basically, your body breaks down the foods and beverages you ingest during digestion so that your body can extract the nutrients for energy, repair, etc.

Unfortunately, additives are created in laboratories using synthetic ingredients our organic bodies just don’t recognize.

And any substance that your body doesn’t recognize or used is considered a toxin that must be flushed from your system…and that is where the trouble begins…

You see, whenever your body flushes toxins from its system, it causes your body to produce tiny molecules known as “free radicals”.

The problem with free radicals is that they travel all over your body damaging cells down to the DNA-level.

By damaging cells down to the DNA level, free radicals have been linked to wide range of degenerative diseases and health problems, including:

  • Increased Risk for Coronary Artery Disease, Heart Attack, and Stroke
  • Increased Risk for Alzheimer’s
  • Increased Risk for Arthritis and Atherosclerosis
  • Increased Risk for Some Forms of Cancer
  • Slower Digestive Function and Increased Gastrointestinal Problems including IBS and Constipation
  • Poor Eyesight

When it comes to your waistline, free radicals cause your digestive function to slow down.

This makes it more difficult for your body to extract nutrients from the food you eat which forces your body to store more nutrients as fat.

But as bad as free radicals are for your waistline, they can be even more dangerous to your overall health!

Basically, free radicals are BAD NEWS but food companies continue to use additives in just about anything you can buy at the grocery store (but there are exceptions—more on this later!).

And yes, even many of the “diet” foods and beverages are made with synthesized sugars that ultimately can slow down your digestive function and ultimately cause you gain—NOT lose—more weight!

Ok, so what can you do?

First, STOP eating DIET foods and beverages made with synthetic sugars like saccharine.

Second, eat foods that are high in antioxidants because they help neutralize free radicals and some can even prevent them from forming in the first place. Some foods that are high in antioxidants include:

  • Beans
  • Blueberries
  • Cherries
  • Apples
  • Pecans
  • Artichoke
  • Prunes
  • Cranberries
  • Slimming Tea

Ok, replacing foods high in additives with those that are high in antioxidants will help control the free radicals—but what about your waistline?

Isn’t that the reason you started eating and drinking all those “diet” foods/drinks in the first place?

Well, my good friend Dr. Charles has dedicated most of his professional career to safely and permanently eliminating fat so that his patients can reach and maintain their weight loss goals.

Now I am NOT talking about “fad diets”, spending every waking moment down at the gym, or taking a bunch of diet pills.

In fact, Dr. Charles developed The Fat Loss Factor as a step-by-step system that slowly but surely transforms your entire body into one big “fat burning machine”.

  • Stress Reduction Techniques to Lower Cortisol Production
  • List of Fat-Burning Supplements
  • Over 100 Pages in All and Guaranteed Fluff-Free

You find yourself in a world where even the things that are supposed to help you lose weight—like diet foods and beverages—may actually be making you gain weight.

And at a time when obesity, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and even diabetes rates are spiking towards all-time highs, you simply cannot afford to ignore the true risks of the foods and beverages you consume.

The Fat Loss Factor was designed, tested, and proven by a doctor dedicated to helping people safely and permanently shed unwanted pounds.

The Real Reason Why You Can't Lose Weight…

http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photo-stress-im-bã-ro-multitasking-image21944315

Stress can cause you to pile more work on yourself because it impairs your decision-making ability.

Have you ever been here? You’ve been eating lean, healthy, non-processed foods for weeks.  Exercising like mad.

Maybe you’ve even been fasting intermittently. But you step on the scale and it hasn’t budged.

Your jeans still feel tight.  And your body is still riddled with pockets of belly fat or cellulite. What’s going ON?!

Researchers spend a LOT of time researching why people continue to gain weight no matter how hard they work at losing weight.

And one common link between weight gain, diabetes, and even obesity is this: Stress.

It’s true.  Studies now show that not only does stress make you gain weight, but it also may be why you can’t LOSE weight, no matter how much you diet or exercise!

What Is Stress?

Stress is not laundry, bills, misbehaving children or puppies, or spouses.

Stress, rather, is your body’s response to demands.

Richard Lazarus, a prominent psychologist, defined stress as, “Any event in which environmental demands, internal demands, or both tax or exceed the adaptive resources of an individual…†”

For some people, stress can be simple not getting out of work on time and having to sit in traffic.

For others, it may take divorce, job loss, or even a death in the family.

Stress is subjective; it’s different for every unique person.

But stress isn’t only caused by thse psychological challenges.

In addition, stress can be brought on by:

  • Poor sleep habits
  • Sickness
  • Diet
  • Inflammation
  • Too much exercise
  • Toxins

How Stress May Be The Reason Why You Can’t Lose Weight…

When you’re stressed, your body releases a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is high in the mornings and lower at night – helping you get your ZZZ’s. When you’re stressed, however, your cortisol levels get out of whack. Your body, in response, suffers high blood sugar levels. This can cause you to experience:

  • High blood pressure
  • Insatiable hunger
  • Reduced ability to lose weight
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Insulin resistance
  • Retention of stored fat in your cells
  • Liver fat
  • Belly fat

Every single one of these inconsistent cortisol level side effects may be the reason why you can’t lose weight.

Side Effects of Stress…

As if weight gain weren’t enough, stress can also cause other painful manifestations in your life & body.

Maybe you grind your teeth at night due to stress you bottle up during the day time.

This can give you headaches, and cause you to be able to manage less throughout the day; thereby adding to your stress!

Stress will also give you less ability to concentrate, making simple decisions seem like insurmountable tasks.

Stress causes many people to become insomniacs, which increases fatigue throughout the day and causes you to become susceptible to diseases and weight gain. 

It also causes people to deal with nasty emotions of anger, hostility, and even depression.  

And when you try not to lash out, you actually internalize your emotions which may lead to neck pain, back pain, and even serious injury to your body!

Steve Ozanich, author of The Great Pain Deception, claims that pain in our psyche actually manifests with physical pain!

Can you think of the last time your next or back hurt?  

Was it during a time of great stress or psychological pain?

Ozanich says,

“The tension from self-imposed pressure… produces a physical symptom to distract the sufferer from the anger… Every day people are getting operated on needlessly for back pain, knee pain, hip pain, shoulder, arm, hand and foot pain—unnecessary medical procedures. In fact, the notion that our bodies are failing us is actually keeping us in pain. Routinely, we are inundated with the faulty concept that back discs can somehow slip out of place, that herniated discs cause back pain, that “partial tears” are the cause of shoulder knee and ankle pain. We know from Dr. Sarno’s work that these are antiquated concepts, and surgery is rarely, if ever, needed for healing.†”

How To Get Rid Of Stress…

1.  Turn Off The Screens…

I’m guilty of having people simultaneously calling me, ringing my doorbell, Skype pinging me, texting me, emailing me, and then wondering why I haven’t seen their Facebook message. AGH!

This makes people feel like they are constantly “on call” and adds to immense stress and pressure in your life.

Try to have set hours that you are available by email, other hours during which you are available by phone, etc.

I periodically put an away message on my phone or email, which causes people to think twice about whether or not what they have to get me involved in is really that urgent.

Moreover, screens cause you to lose sleep.

Scientists at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute discovered that it only takes two measly hours of exposure to a device with a backlit display for melatonin supression to occur; which will make it harder to fall asleep at night.

Professor Mariana Figueiro states, “Our study shows that a two-hour exposure to light from self-luminous electronic displays can suppress melatonin by about 22 percent.

2.  Learn This Two-Letter Word…

NO. 

Practice it with me out loud: NO.

If you feel like your life is too full of ‘good causes’ to devote time to yourself, you may have a “No” problem.

Psychologically, if you constantly try to fill your schedule in order to get away from your home life, or get away from self-reflection, you’re adding more stress to your body.

Judith Sills, PhD, says, “Wielded wisely, No is an instrument of integrity and a shield against exploitation. It often takes courage to say. It is hard to receive. But setting limits sets us free.†”

Maybe tonight you need a bath, not a ballet.

Or maybe you need a nice long walk with your dogs or spouse, not another obligation at school or church.

Whatever it is that you’re saying “Yes” to in place of your much needed “you” time may be hurting your body, your relationships, and even your lifespan!

3.  Cleanse Naturally…

Drink Slimming Tea to reduce stress!

The L-Theanine in Slimming Tea helps you concentrate better and boosts your mood.

Plus, it is very low caffeine, so you won’t feel crashes after drinking it.

Moreover, in order to satiate your hunger, take Slimming Tea capsules; once before breakfast, and once before lunch in order to help you feel satiated and make wise food choices.

Slimming Tea is also ripe with catechins; little disease-fighting antioxidants that will help you flush nasty toxins from your body that cause stress, fatigue, and weight gain.

Do you believe that the reason why you can’t lose weight may be due to the stress in your life?

Next time you feel your blood boiling or your tummy getting nauseous with the weight of stressors, take a deep breath and find a way to employ one of these stress-relieving tactics. It may save your life!

Real Celebrity Weight Loss Secrets…

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-celebrity-image3117411

They may have a lot of money, but their bodies are the same as ours! How do they keep so trim?

After big events like the Met Gala, I can’t help but to stare at all the amazing dresses, and fit figures – of all the celebrity attendees.

They’ve got all the money they could want… and it’s basically their JOB to look good.

Lucky them!

But lucky for YOU, I’ve snagged a list of some real celebrity weight loss secrets so that “the rest of us” can look red-carpet ready, too!

Remember – even though you may not have millions of dollars, your body is the same as every one of these slim, trim, sexy celebs.

The same tricks that work for celebrity weight loss will work for you, too!

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photography-portrait-healthy-woman-bottle-water-towel-lifestyle-concept-sporty-girl-beautiful-body-image34330332

Looking good in your workout clothes makes you want to workout more often!

1.  Lust After Your Gym Clothes…

It was a great day when I wore an Old Navy workout outfit to the gym and not one, but two people asked me if it was a high-end brand!

In this day and age, mega-retailers have caught on to the fact that gym clothes don’t need to look like gym ‘class’ clothes from the 80’s.

Find yourself a super-cute shirt or the comfiest training shoes you can afford.

This will make you WANT to get into the gym more, if nothing else so that you can wear clothes and shoes you love!

If you’re like me, you don’t go to the gym very much, but rather opt for at-home exercise, running, and body weight training.

But the concept is the same.

When I wake up in the morning, I get SO excited to wear a pair of my favorite workout shoes and cute little workout top.

And once I put the outfit on – it just doesn’t feel right unless I get some training in, too!

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-girl-resting-cardio-workout-image19657611

If you look good – it can make weight training in front of the mirror that much more motivating!

2.  Look Like You Love To Be There…

How often do people walk around the gym with no makeup, shying away from people’s eye contact?

Kelly Osbourne admits that her super-secret celebrity weight loss tip is simple: the Makeup Trick.

That way she looks in the mirror while she’s training and loves what she sees.

It makes the third set of WoodChops or Upright Rows a bit more fun when you think you look cute doing it!

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-images-woman-chooses-dumbbells-image28494274

Set yourself small goals so you have MORE victories!

3.  Eat The Elephant One Bite At A Time…

It’s no fun to think, “I want to lose 20 pounds by summer” or “I need to lose 30 pounds before vacation.

The whole thing just sounds too intimidating.

In business I tell my staff that if we eat the elephant one bite at a time, we will finish small projects rapidly as opposed to focus on one huge project that never seems to get done.

Plus, if you space your 1 big weight loss goals into 6 small goals, you have more victories!

Get it?  6 goals met vs. 1 goal met = 6 times the celebration!

Who doesn’t want a good celebration?!  It’s good for your mind, and your body!

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-images-close-up-feet-step-equipment-image29091684

Switch up your routine to train different parts of your body.

4.  Play The Training Guessing Game…

Shay Mitchell uses what she terms the “Got To Look Hot In A Week” plan.

Taking your weight loss plan week-by-week is way easier than the thought of giving up ice cream and pizza for life.

She says that in 7 days, she varies her workouts between bicycling, treadmill intervals, and other exercises that keep her body guessing all week.

Plus, by switching things up, you train MORE muscles than if you just stuck to one or two exercises.

But be sure to rest muscles that become sore after your week of workouts in order to prevent injury!

http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-image-healthy-trail-run-outdoor-cross-country-running-early-sunrise-concept-exercising-fitness-lifestyle-image38475966

The best workouts are the ones that are so fun, you forget you’re training!

5.  Act Like A Kid…

The first time I took a martial arts class, it felt like I was a kid.

Jumping, kicking, wearing pajamas… loved.it!

Try to imagine some workouts that make you feel like a kid.

Maybe it’s getting on a bike.  Perhaps it’s box-jumping or Zumba dance class.

When you are having fun while training… you guessed it.  You forget it’s ‘training’ at all!

Plus, as Emmy Rossum puts it, if you take a new class that’s fun, you get to soak up the positive energy around you.

There’s invariably going to be somebody putting in 110%, which causes you to want to give your all, too.

http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-image-crossfit-training-fitness-man-plank-exercise-doing-core-working-out-his-midsection-core-muscles-fit-male-instructor-image30674496

Not in the mood to cross-country run? Try planking for one minute intervals instead!

6.  Shorter IS Smarter!

There is mounting evidence that your body actually gains MORE muscle when you do short, intense workouts as opposed to long, exhausting ones.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr uses a workout that only requires *twelve* minutes a day.

Four times a week, she does intervals with simple exercises, such as lunges, squats, and star jumps.

Because it’s only TWELVE measly minutes, she can fit it into her busy schedule.

And in case you didn’t know this, she’s basically one of the world’s most famous supermodels… so something is clearly working well about this workout!

Try 12 minutes of burpees, lunges, or sets of box jumps.

This high intensity training is great for short, powerful training!

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photography-healthy-woman-rejecting-junk-food-isolated-picture-over-white-background-image34601302

Don’t deprive yourself: cheat at the “right” times!

7.  Pick The Right Times To Cheat…

 

 

Oh, yeah.  You know you’ve done it.

You’ve been eating really good all day so you allow yourself to have a few chips at night.

Maybe you order the creamed corn instead of spinach as a side.

You may even have a drink or two… or three or four…

STOP!  This is probably the worst habit you can make in your diet because you sit on those calories all night long without having burned them off… and worse yet – it interrupts your sleep!

And if your sleep is shoddy – your whole body suffers.

Moreover, if you haven’t had a lot to eat in the earlier part of the day, your metabolism isn’t cranked up to handle a binge-fest at night!

Starlet Hayden Panettiere indulges, but makes sure to do it in the morning so that she can burn if off all day.

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-images-asian-women-image29462484

What’s your ‘real’ goal? To look good in a swimsuit? To live longer for your kids?

8.  Ask Yourself “The Question”…

What’s the point?

You may be asking yourself this very question as you run in place on the treadmill or kill your quads doing some squats.

But keeping the bigger question in mind is can help you make it through your weight loss slumps.

Celebrity weight loss trainer Jillian Michaels started with the question ‘why do I want to be in shape?” and wrote it down.

She sees her list constantly everywhere to remind herself why she trains and how it will improve her life.

Why do you want to be in shape?

Is it to live longer?  To feel better?  To prove to somebody that you ‘still got it’?

It’s nobody’s place to judge why you train but your own.

So grab yourself a pen and a pad of sticky-notes and write it down.  Now put it in drawers, on your fridge, in your closet, and on your mirror.

You’ll be so motivated all day that you won’t be able to ditch your workout!

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photo-beautiful-chinese-oriental-asian-woman-smiling-image21827010

Listen to your body – it’s your own personal magical power!

9.  Develop A Self-Love Spidey-Sense…

Going to the gym is NOT always the best thing for you.

Sometimes it’s sleeping in.

And sometimes the best thing for your weight loss goal is to have a cheat day!

You know what is going to motivate you and what will, by contrast, wipe you out!

So listen to your body.

If you aren’t in the mood for weight training, take a walk with the dogs.

Or if you don’t feel like a long workout – just try to do 10 minutes of something fun, like dancing or jumping rope.

Maybe what your body NEEDS to repair and recover is a nice, long bath!

Cameron Diaz says that taking care of herself is more important than having a ripped stomach.  “…Some days I go to the gym for literally 10 minutes.  But the fact that I got up and got there matters to me.”
