I've always struggled with weight. I've weighed 210 pounds. That's size 16. I'm around a lot of skinny people.
Detoxification is the process of removing toxic substances from a person’s body. It's an everyday process. Minute by minute, hour by hour. When our body is working well, this process goes on without a hitch. These toxins we need to get rid of aren't just the bad crap from our processed food, etc. It's also from the natural side product of metabolism. Detox shouldn't be a mysterious word. Toxins shouldn't be either. It's just what it is. Now you can put in LESS toxins. You can help your body do better with daily detox. THE LIVER. I like to call it the aquarium filter. It does a big job. More on that later. Here's the deal. You're body can deal with a lot of abuse. You treat it well, you can push it more. You eat more fruits and veggies, you can deal more with the less than optimal food, or lifestyle habits, extensive exercise, etc. But if you don't make some educated choices, that filter gets REAL SMELLY and the fish start floating. Or you get sick. Or you don't sleep well. Or you are always tired. Or your performance is lower. Or you get a disease of some sort. I'll be putting together a class on detox. How to make some changes so this becomes a way of life for you, without you really even thinking about it much. (it's all about the poohs!) I can't wait to show this to you. But lets start HERE! WATER WATER WATER. Clean water. Just plain water. You can add lemon, lime, raspberries, etc. First step in this lifestyle change is to ensure that you are drinking 8 glasses of water a day. If you have that down ... more fiber. Next week I'll send out fiber help. Check out the smoothie recipes if you wanting to go a step further now. The super green one is GREAT.

A balanced approachI've been thinking a bit on why there are so many different kinds of diets. And why so many of them don't work. One reason is because we look at weight loss as a separate event. Like painting the house. Instead of a part of our lives that is influenced by many aspects of our lives. There are MANY factors that contribute to weight gain. Not all of them are immediately under our control. Granted our habits might have gotten us to a point where weight loss is hard but after cleaning things up, you just might have residue affects that you aren't obviously aware of that are slowing you down. Example. Clogged up liver. Eating a food you have no idea you are sensitive to. Missing a couple of nutrients. Another thought to throw your weigh. Maybe there are so many weight loss programs because we just aren't getting to the heart of the matter and these programs are a brute force way of losing weight. Which in the end, doesn't stick. Doesn't translate into lifestyle changes. WHY? Because they are sustainable. So ... should you lose weight in a manner that isn't a healthy lifestyle change? Short term gain for .... what? Closet full of clothes of many sizes. So what to do. Well, we are all individuals. Gloriously unique. So our approach to weight loss will be unique. Now, that's not to say that their won't have a similar foundation, but everyone will have different needs. That sounds complicated, but actually, it's not that hard. Takes some patience. Some investigation. Some experimentation. My Wellness Coaching Playbook, which can be tailored for your goal, is an awesome way to find your individualize plan. You'll learn the skills to find your own solution --> lifestyle changes.

Confused by fiber? Well, you're not alone. Most people are. But you don't have to know all the ins and outs of fiber to get benefit from it. When you eat a healthy diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits, you usually get most of the fiber you'll need, which means you'll also be lowering your risk of diabetes, heart disease, diverticulitis, and constipation. Not a bad package deal. Officially, fiber is a type of carbohydrate that the body can't digest. Most adult women should shoot for over 20 grams of fiber a day; men should shoot for over 30 grams. Great sources are whole fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads and breakfast cereals, and all manner of beans. The benefits of fiber are PROFOUND. Listen to this audio, it's worth the beginning transitions. Dr Watson - What is fiber Happy chewing.Read More »
