How To Lose Stubborn Belly Fat

Why You May Be Having Trouble Losing Fat In Your Mid-Section (and no, it’s not just a matter of eating less calories)… If you have fat that you’ve been trying to lose and it’s REALLY difficult for you to break through this weight loss plateau, especially in your midsection It seems like nothing’s working?… it is absolutely possible that you have heavy metals, toxic chemicals, and exposure to foods that you can’t fully digest, and that is CAUSING your body to hold on to more fat. Here’s what I mean…. Your body is freakin smart. When it’s exposed to something toxic, it produces white fat cells as a protective mechanism to keep toxins AWAY from your brain. So everytime that you’re taking in something toxic — whether it be pesticides on your food, heavy metals from toxic cookware, ingredients in implants (whether they be breast implants, IUDs, etc), mold exposure, or even consumption of foods that cause inflammation like dairy and gluten — your body will create white fat cells to surround that toxin, to protect your brain. And then once your body has created these toxic fat cells, its not too willing to release them. Your body can intentionally hold on to those fat cells with a death grip because it doesn’t want to allow them to get back into circulation and risk them harming your brain. So how do you get past this? How do you break this cycle when you already have higher fat stores.  You need to improve your detoxification capabilities by reducing your body’s inflammation through the RIGHT foods and the RIGHT supplements (...

Can You Be Addicted To Food?

Can You Actually Be Addicted To Food? In this video, I address how food addiction is indeed a real thing, and how you begin to recover. This is a really important topic to discuss, and I don’t think there’s enough attention being drawn to it. Over 7 million people in the U.S alone struggle with food addiction. Personally, I feel like society in general is happy to celebrate someone for their sobriety from alcohol or drugs, as they should! My own father has been sober for over 20 years and it’s absolutely something to celebrate! But when it comes to food addiction, we forget that it’s just as powerful. Recovery from food addiction It’s more than willpower. It’s more than drive and motivation. This addiction truly is a chemical reaction in your body that keeps you addicted to food. It’s a culmination of brain and body. We must stop shaming people for making the healthiest choices they need to make to get through this addiction. The Science (what’s happening in your body): Gluten and dairy can stimulate opiate receptors and trigger those “feel good” hormones called endorphins in the brain. And they produce that “feel good” response. And THEN, on top of the fact that you’re getting this immediate endorphin release, the cycle perpetuates. Because once you’ve eaten those foods, they start altering the chemical makeup of your gut. And it starts having a will of its own, because it wants to survive. So it will send chemical messengers to your brain that say “ I want more…” How do you break the cycle? Rewire the brain through training...

How To Break Your Scale Addiction!

“I used to live and die by the number on the scale!”   Many of us have heard that you shouldn’t rely solely on the scale to assess your weight loss progress. But if you’re anything like me or my clients, that can be REALLY hard to do. It’s a challenge to not value that number when it seems as though that’s ALL this world uses when evaluating successful weight loss. We hear that muscle ways more than fat. We hear that we’re supposed to use other forms of measurement such as measurements, progress pictures, body fat assessment tools, etc. But it’s not enough to just TELL you that these other forms of measurement are more accurate. But I want you to understand exactly why the number on the scale holds the least value of all so you can finally have some clarity! FollowFollowFollowFollowFollowFollow FREE Consultation!

Does Apple Cider Vinegar Aid In Weight Loss

Does Apple Cider Vinegar Aid In Weight Loss? It’s highly likely that you have heard of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and the endless list of benefits it supposedly has. It’s definitely been one of the most popular health buzz words over the last few years, coming up in conversations about skin care, heart health, weight loss, and more. It almost seems to be one of those “fix-all” ingredients (kind of like coconut oil being the said solution for everything). But today, we’re going to focus the primary ways it may benefit you in your weight loss journey… 1.) Apple Cider Vinegar can help maintain normal blood sugar levels.  How does this relate to you in your weight loss journey? Out-of-whack blood sugar levels lead to hormonal fluctuations, cravings (you know when you feel like a raveous creature), poor sleep, and more. One study found vinegar consumption to decrease blood sugar levels by an average of 31% after eating white bread (which normally will quickly spikes blood sugar). In another study, scientists gave ACV to diabetic rats for four weeks and found that it significantly reduced their blood sugar levels. Talk about a simple biohack! 2.) Apple Cider Vinegar can help increase satiety. Studies have shown that taking ACV can help increase your level of satiety, or feeling of being full, which can clearly work in your favor when trying to lose weight! Feeling full can consequently help you to consume less calories and more easily control your cravings. One study found that, on average, people who incorporated ACV into their daily regimen consumed almost 300 LESS calories per day compared...
