Motivation Series - Monthly Review!


     

                                                      Motivation Series
                                "A healthy dose of motivation with a twist"


1. Can you hear me now? Listen to your gut for good health and weight.

2. When you have a gut feeling, don't ignore it because it's always right. It's talking up a storm without ever saying a word.

3. Life is a balancing act and so is your gut. Balance the good and bad bacteria in your gut by feeding those probiotics lots of prebiotics.

4. Your gut is home to a good part of your immune system, make it a friendly place to live.

5. If you have a leaky gut, plug it up fast by loading up on healthy foods that promote a healthy gut lining like fermented foods.

Motivating Tip
Your gut is your friend, don't make it your enemy by feeding it a daily diet of junk food. Your gut can't thrive on junk food, it needs the real thing.

My name is Ms.Delicious Diary and my job is to see how my clients are really doing when it comes to their weight loss journey. My favorite clients are Super Size-It Sally and Low-Calorie Lucy, along with their close knit group of friends. They all have their own way of dealing with their issues, and the funniest nicknames to prove it as you will see as you read their diary entries each week. I hold the key to the diary in this special little green bag. My fingers are itching to unlock the diary and see their weight loss or gain, and check their delicious food entries.
                                         

Dear Diary: My Coaching Session!


Super Size-It Sally:  

Our coach was missing in action today so we all just got started without her. She was running late so we took advantage of that and had a little fun with all her weight loss tools including that big bad scale and the tape measure that always ends up in a tangled mess in the corner. We all hate to see them coming, they make us feel that we can't measure up no matter what we do.

Low-Calorie Lucy:

It's all in the way you look at it, you either love them or hate them. But, the scale is not the enemy, it just reports the facts. So we should look at these tools as something that is there to support our efforts in losing weight and getting healthy. I have learned the hard way if I wait too long to weigh myself, I might be shocked when I get on the scale. But, if I weigh myself once a week, then there is no surprise because it will just be a few pounds up or down and it's not a big deal, literally!

Lifestyle change of the week!
We encourage you to embrace anything that can help you get fit and healthy. Whether it's a scale, measuring tape or a food diary, use the tools as an aid to reach your goals!

Motivation Series - Gut Feeling!



                                                            Motivation Series
                                    "A healthy dose of motivation with a twist"




How is your gut feeling today? Is it cool, calm and collected or does it feel more like there is a lot of rough and tumble going on? What ever the case, you should pay close attention to how your tummy feels because it could be trying to tell you something. If you suffer from a lot of bloating and allergic reactions it could spell trouble that you won't want to ignore. You just might have a gut that has sprung a leak and is causing your system to over react. But, even though we sound like the bearer of bad news, it's all good because we have a tip that you can try that just might stop the leak and the madness. Load up on healthy super foods and at the same time remove processed food from your diet. You don't have to do this forever, just long enough to give your gut time to heal. We always suggest that you eat healthy whole foods most of the time anyway for good health and that still stands. A few foods you might want to add to your diet are - Jerusalem Artichokes, garlic, leeks, onions, asparagus, fermented foods and lots of fruits. And don't forget those super spices like - Turmeric, cumin, curry and the almighty cinnamon. Try this for a month or two and see if all these super foods are super yummy for your tummy!

Motivating Tip
The best tip for good gut health is to load up on whole foods and skip the processed foods that are loaded with preservatives that preserve foods until the cows come home. Eat fresh!

Motivation Series - Do This, Not That!



                                                       Motivation Series
                               "A healthy dose of motivation with a twist"

Do This:

1. You can't go wrong when you feed your gut right. It loves fermented foods.

2. Plug up a leaky gut if you don't want health problems.

3. To learn more about your gut, read The Microbiome Diet book by Raphael Kellman. You will be so glad you did!

4. When you eat you are either feeding the good or bad bacteria. Choose wisely for best results.

5. What's for dinner?

Not That:

1. Don't eat a diet of junk food and hope for the best.

2. Don't take your health for granted. It's hard to do anything when you are sick.

3. Don't let your gut leak without you knowing it.

4. Don't feel good? It could be your microbiome is unbalanced. Yikes!

5. Don't eat junk for dinner, eat real food without fake ingredients.

Motivating Tip
You are absolutely what you eat, how could you not be? So if that is the case, and it is, then you should try to eat the very best food you can find. Then you will find your best self!

Dear Diary: My Book Club Chat!

Super Size-It Sally:

Page 53 reads: I thought everything was going to be alright now, I was wrong. But it was a brand new year, and I was on a brand new diet that was not working. And, to make matters worse, I was gaining weight instead of losing. They promised me I would lose weight if I just stopped eating. But Mary found it hard to eat those tiny portions you could barely spot with a magnifying glass. She was hungry and wanted food, that was all she could think about. Finally, one cold winter day she gave in to all her cravings and she just ate, and ate and ate...

Low-Calorie Lucy:

Page 54 reads: It's no fun to walk around hungry all the time. I don't think you should give up eating your favorite foods just to lose weight. Mary's problem was she just ate too much of the wrong thing. I tried to warn her about that but she did not want to hear it at the time. She was in a bad mood from being so hungry all day and tired of fighting the urge to eat this and not that...

Lifestyle change of the week!
Most people who struggle with weight need to switch the way they eat. Instead of eating the wrong kind of food most of the time, and healthy food sometime. They need to eat healthy food most of the time and junk food sometimes. Problem solved!

Motivation Series - Gut Check!



                                                        Motivation Series
                                 "A healthy dose of motivation with a twist"



Do you need a gut check? There might be things going on in your gut that are causing problems from head to toe. It turns out the health of all that bacteria in your stomach can effect everything from allergies to a bad mood. Even effecting weight gain or loss. One thing that can really help your gut is eating plenty of fermented foods. The reason these foods help your gut is because the digestion process is already under way before you even take a bite, making it easier for your gut to finish the job. Which means there will be less of a chance for undigested food to hang around with no place to go. So load up on all those delicious fermented foods and let them go to work ASAP!

Motivating Tip
Some fermented foods to try are Kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles, pickled radishes, pickled carrots, Pickled cucumbers, even beer and wine make the list. These foods are considered prebiotics, they feed the good bacteria that is already in your gut making them even healthier.

Dear Diary: My Coaching Session!

Super Size-It Sally:  
Our coaching session was gut wrenching to say the least. Our coach informed us that our gut is loaded with bacteria and if it is out of balance, it could spell trouble for our weight. What? I have never heard this before, when did this happen and how do I fix it? She said our next few sessions will be all about our gut health and learning about things we can do to improve it. I can't wait!
Low-Calorie Lucy:  
I love learning new things about my health because it really can change everything for the better. Once you know better, you can do better. I have heard a lot about gut health and the need to eat probiotics and prebiotics to maintain a healthy gut. But I didn't realize it can also effect your weight. I am looking forward to learning more about that for sure.
