SOUND REMOTELY FAMILIAR?
Those who have never struggled to control their weight are the lucky ones!
I wonder what we would all do if we could eat with impunity---just think??
We'd probably get into a food shortage problem.
Now, coming from a basically fat family, I have had to be weight conscious.
My lifetime personal, & experience with hundreds of such patients, has
brought me to the three critical points for successful, once & for all
1. Clear powerful motivation.
2. An initial diet to get started & rewarded.
3. The right food FOR YOU.
MOTIVATION, YOU SAY?
As a long time hypnotherapist, I have great respect for the ability
of the right reprogramming tapes to effect positive & lasting change,
worth years of psychotherapy. This particular item is titled "Inside/Outside:
The Motivational Weight Loss Program". It is sold by Nightingale-Conant.
Call 1-800-5259000 for their brochure, or to order.
They also address other self help/growth issues with this most
effective technique. What a wonderful easy way to take control
of your life in whatever category you wish. Just pick the area
you want to improve, then do it. We don't have to be or to feel
helpless victims of our circumstances. When we dare to be responsible
in creating positive change, it always pays off. Some kind of change
takes place all the time, so why not direct the course of your
internal reactions, thoughts & expectations, in order to effect
your outer as well as inner reality?
WHAT DIET CAN GET ME
My favorite initial weight loss diet is the Sacred Heart Memorial Basic Fat Burning Soup.
This is my favorite
because it is easy & provides quick results. It is also healthy
for intermittent or short term use, & is also cleansing. The protein
content is too low for long term use. Almost everyone I have put
on this diet has been highly successful. I suggest an intermittent
program of 1-2 weeks on & 2 weeks off until you achieve your goal.
You can vary the vegetables in the soup to keep it interesting.
I like to add broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, & mung bean sprouts
to the basic recipe. Remember the more of the soup you eat, the
more weight you lose, so this involves no hunger & no calorie counting,
just a change in what you eat. Though the diet allows for a small
amount of fruit juice, those who delete this lose weight faster.
Since no diet is completely balanced (including the one you are
eating when you are not dieting), I suggest you take basic supplementation
to feel even better. Take a good Multivitamin Mineral, at least
1000 mg Vitamin C, Essential Fatty Acids, such as MAX-EPA, or Flax
Seed Oil & a good multi-amino-acid product such as Aminoplex--5
with breakfast, 1-2 with dinner. You should feel quite good on
the diet & using proper supplentation.
HOW DO YOU KNOW THE RIGHT
FOOD FOR YOU?
Let's try to simplify a possibly complicated subject. Some blessed
people can eat any variety of foods & have no health symptoms &
no weight problems. But if you have weight problems, &/or physical,
cognitive, or emotional symptoms of any kind, then likely you need
to avoid certain foods.
The food program you end up with at this stage would need to become
more a way of life & not the transient above listed i diet you
would follow to achieve your initial goals.
Aside from the obvious thyroid & other glandular problems which
contribute to excess weight, the next most common contributors
are food intolerances, &/or a candida (yeast) overgrowth in mucous
membranes of the body. Since the symptoms associated with these
conditions can be various, insidious, & referrable to any part
of the body, sometimes the only way to know if this is contributing
is to have adequate testing. Since the short term weight loss diet
I am suggesting eliminates most of the common food allergens &
all the foods aggravating to Candida, if you feel much better on
this diet, that can be a message to you that you are reacting adversely
to certain foods.
If you want testing, the labs I like best for candida tests are
either Immunodiagnostics Lab,1-800-888-1113 or Immunosciences Lab
in Beverly Hills at 310-657-1077. Other good Labs are listed in
our Links section.If your Dr is what I call a Candida skeptic they
can talk to the directors of the Labs or get literature from them.
You can also do some of your own reading. Try the books, "Candida
Related Complex" by Christine Winderlin, & take the written test
in the book "The Yeast Connection", by William Crook M.D. to see
if your condition is likely candida related. I am repeatedly surprised
at the number of people I see who have this condition, BOTH men
& women, not just women as is commonly thought. You can also follow
the candida control diet to see how much it benefits you.
A number of labs do useful food sensitivity testing. I use Great
Smokies lab (see in the lab links at http://www.thewayup.com) One
reason I like them is they provide a Rotation Diet the individual
can follow which almost always provides weight loss &/or stabilization.
I refer you also to the books on allergy in the allergy section
of the Book Store at our web site. Remember, most people who suffer
from Candida or Food Sensitivities have no idea this is the source
of some or all of their health sypmtoms & sadly most remain undiagnosed
& therefore not properly treated. By the way, these 2 conditions
often exist together. Will talk more about these, in detail, in
the future, but right now we are staying with weight control.
When you are not following the diet listed on the web site & if
you have significant weight to lose, or if you have high cholesterol,
or triglycerides, I suggest you add 3 supplements which aid in
loss of fat. Link to each one to read how it will contribute to
your weight loss program. See:
No doubt that's the hardest part. So here is what I have found
to be the best help. You may have heard of Neurolinguistic Programming.
It is a powerful, simple new technique which trains your mind to process
thoughts differently. This has been combined with methods of hypnotherapy
to produce a powerful reprogramming set of Hypno-Peripheral Processing
Tapes. You listen with head- phones & a different message goes in to each
SUPER CLA BLEND
These are very effective & analogous to the benefits of the most
newly released prescriptive diet drug, Xenical (Orlistat). The
nutrients & the drug will both decrease fat, but the drug does
it by a different mechanism, blocking the action of your fat splitting
pancreatic enzyme, lipase. It remains to be seen whether there
will be long term adverse effects from changing the enzyme function.
I prefer a natural item, with no potential risks to accomplish
the same end effect.
