Body Kindness

Imagine a graph with two lines. One indicates happiness, the other tracks how you feel about your body. If you’re like millions of people, the lines do not intersect. But what if they did? 

It’s normal to feel and experience an array of emotions which sometimes trigger a downward spiral. What if instead of reaching for food we practice Body Kindness. From downward spiral to upward spiral, Rebecca Scritchfield, RD teaches us to use radical selfacceptance and Body Kindness to never diet again! 

In this episode I discuss 

  • Why you should focus on well-being, not weight
  • The real reason why we keep searching for the solution that will fix our “body”
  • What’s wrong with some of the popular diets
  • What is Body Kindness?
  • The concept of Spiral down versus Spiral up

Last episode of Ask Me, I answered a question from a Facebook follower, “The more I focus on losing the last X pounds the harder it becomes. Why?” In this powerful episode,  I discussed the #1 reason why the more we work hard on getting rid of something or change what we think of as negative about us just becomes bigger and hard. You wouldn’t wanna miss! Check it out now!

what you resist persists

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS | Sticher 

What you resist persists – Carl Jung. This quote inspired a Community member to bring this question forward: The more I focus on losing the last X pounds the harder it becomes. Why? “ Sometimes it appears that the more we work hard on getting rid of something or change what we think of as negative about us just becomes bigger and hard. Here’s the fact…. What we focus on becomes bigger including the more undesirable things we want to change about us. Let me explain…

In this episode I discuss 

  • Why is it that the harder you focus the worse it gets – what you resist persists
  • The role of quantum physics in the human life
  • What we really are as human beings
  • The solution to that one thing you want to change the most about you
  • The major emotion that directly impacts your behaviors and situation
  • Where and how to find your happiness

Last episode of Ask Me, I answered another listener question, “I’ve tried everything, but nothing works!” In this insightful episode, you will discover why you should stop blaming yourself and the importance of understanding the concept of mindset and the matrix of knowledge and awareness. You don’t wanna miss this!

Why do I keep overeating when I know better? We did a survey last 2 weeks and this is the #1 question you asked. I get it… this used to be mine, too. There is a reason and it’s pretty easy… thought much secret because it’s never talked about. It doesn’t fit in the traditional weight & fitness model. In one way you can say, “It’s not your fault… yet!”

In this episode I discuss 

  • The one thing that the fitness, diet and medical industries do not want you to know about overeating and self-sabotage
  • My personal story how I overcome overeating and the feelings that go with it – terrible, frustrated, shame… You name it!
  • The whole science behind why do I keep overeating
  • What causes you to self-sabotage
  • The #1 reason why willpower, discipline and restriction do not work to achieve long-term success

112 – Eat the Energy You Want to Become with Dr. Deanna Minich: Food, Color & Chakra

Chakra

 

Listen to the episode 

Subscribe:iTunes | RSS | Sticher

 

In this episode I discuss  

Food, color, and Chakra. All intermingle with the word energy. The food we eat brighten us than just calories, but also an energy level that contributes to our mood, mindset, and thoughts. Ancient medicine refers to these energy center as chakra and modern medicine as our endocrine system. Dr. Deanna Minich teaches us how to use color in our food choice to balance our mind and emotions. What if the solution is to eat the energy we want to become?

Chakra

Chakra is derived from Sanskrit and essentially means “wheel.” It relates back to Ayurvedic medicine and many mystical East Indian traditions in which they noticed that there were a lot of activities in the body in certain places. If you look in Western medicine, you would see that the Chakra system is very much aligned with the neuroendocrine system.

We’ve got the Root Chakra or the Adrenal gland, the place of fleeing or being frightened. Then, the Sacral Chakra which is all about reproduction that is the ovaries and testes. The Solar Plexus Chakra is the pancreas which is an endocrine organ that fuses out a lot of enzymes that help us digest and transform. Another one, the Heart Chakra which is connected to the thymus. The Throat Chaka is connected to the thyroid gland. Then, we have the Third Eye Chakra which is the pituitary gland which hangs in the middle of the head. We also have a small gland called the pineal gland which I associate with the Crown Chakra. It’s the center of light and how our body regulates light in the finer energies of the day, of the seasons, of the planet. Dr. Deanna Minich calls them the 7 systems of health.

Color 

When people eat a certain way, it separates them from other people. Diets seem to be dividing. They are not unifying. What is unifying no matter what our eating preference is? Color is a unifying force. Color is creativity. It’s around us and serves as an environmental stimulus. It impacts our physiology and psychology. Color is physical and psychological. It’s powerful and has the ability to change people’s patterns. 

Hence, if we eat food of different colors, our different bodily systems will catch on with the vibration of that color and feel better as well. 

Last week’s episode, Jamie Lerner taught us how to reinvent ourselves by changing our storyline to change our lives. I suggest you check it out! You can listen to the episode here.

111 – How to Reinvent Yourself: Change Your Storyline, Change Your Life with Jamie Lerner

Reinvent-Yourself

 

Listen to the episode 

Subscribe:iTunes | RSS | Sticher

 

In this episode I discuss  

Statistics reports that only 10% of new year resolutions stick all year. We chase goals outside of ourselves: weight on a scale, cars, promotions, etc. and that’s where we surely guarantee to fail plus we chase the goals with the same attitude as we did the year before… Another sure guarantee to fail. We must reinvent ourselves in the process of desiring new goals, otherwise, we will only repeat the same results as before. Jamie Lerner has a completely different perspective on how we can do just that… Reinvent ourselves by changing our storyline, so that we can change our life… Changes that can be done from the inside that will impact the outside!

Reinvent Yourself

How do you reinvent yourself? That is the question that would normally pop up after hearing and knowing that reinventing is the key to changing our lives the way we want it to be… It all starts in the mind.

It’s our thoughts that can fix our problem. When you quiet the mind, you’ll hear those messages. You’ll feel those messages. Hopefully, you’ll allow yourself to trust them. People generally get an inkling and a signal, and they don’t listen to themselves.

We create everything with our thoughts. We are the most amazing manifesters. Hence, wanted or unwanted thoughts create our reality. If we could be conscious of creating what we want with our thoughts – only what we want, we would be having the most glorious lives. How can we choose our thoughts and direct them to create and manifest today? That’s part of the whole reframing to eventually reinvent yourself.

Law of Attraction

We attract everything into our experience vibrationally through our thoughts and our feelings. It’s a really interesting concept when you wrap your mind around this because you can begin to understand how you can use the contrast. Contrast is everything that you are not wanting so that you’re launching all these rockets of desire. You know want you don’t want and you know what you do want. It’s how you focus all of that attention to create just that.

Last week’s episode, I shared with you the Mastering Your Food Craving talk that I did at the Low Carb Universe conference held in Mallorca, Spain. It was voted #1 and most appreciated talk in the conference, so I suggest you check it out! You can listen to the episode here.

In this episode I discuss  

The Low Carb Universe is a unique international event. As much focus is brought forward to nutrition as it is to mind and body approach to health. It’s more than a conference. It’s a retreat… luxurious hotel, small group workshop, one-on-one interaction with speakers. This event is perfect for me to teach at as it models my beliefs… Mind, body and soul experience. Mastering Your Food Cravings was the main talk I performed at the event… and was voted #1 and most appreciated talk! You get to listen in for free…

Mastering Your Food Cravings – The Low Carb Universe Conference 2017

It was truly an honor for me to be invited to deliver my signature talk – Mastering Your Food Cravings at the Low Carb Universe conference. The talk that touches people’s hearts when I’m on the road, when I’m at conferences or when I meet people for the first time. Normally, I am not allowed to share those talks because they are proprietary to the conferences that I speak to, but the organizers of the Low Carb Universe, Hanna and Bitte did me a huge favor and allowed me to share this with you on this podcast. This a live recording of the talk that I did. It had a phenomenal reception during the event that so many people came to me a day or two after secretly pulling me aside and told me how the event and how my talk had changed their lives.

Mastering Your Food Cravings is about teaching people what it means to go beyond the food, how we go about healing and crushing our craving by addressing our thoughts, mindset and emotions and the whole science behind it.

Have a look at the photos I took during my recent speaking engagement there.

109 – The OTHER Reason Why We Overeat and Binge with Isabel Foxen Duke

109 – The OTHER Reason Why We Overeat and Binge with Isabel Foxen Duke

reason why we overeat

Listen to the episode 

Subscribe:iTunes | RSS | Sticher

In this episode I discuss  

We shouldn’t avoid emotional eating because when we turn emotional eating into something to avoid as much as dieting, we fall in the trap of diet mentality and all its negative side effects such as overeating and binging. Isabel Foxen Duke is a brilliant leader in the Health At Every Size movement and this interview will rock your world! Must listen!

The Reason Why We Overeat and Binge

Perfectionistic expectation will absolutely lead to rebellion. When applied to food, it will lead to binging and overeating in the same way that perfectionistic expectation to work will lead to burnout. We cannot uphold those expectations. It’s impossible to keep it up all the time, so we end up crashing. We crash in proportion to how rigid we were trying to hold on. And it’s important to understand this concept if we really want to understand the reason why we overeat and binge. 

The more you attempt dieting, the less you are likely to stick to one.  Historically, we’ve always been emotional eaters. When we look at the evolution of the human being, we’ve eaten emotionally, socially, so we cannot cut it off. So, when we try to cease emotional eating from existing, we end up being on the wagon, off the wagon, on the wagon a.k.a. yo-yo dieting. The problem with most people is that they haven’t addressed the diet mentality that’s why they fail to understand the reason why we overeat and binge. 

This is the reason why I developed a program to help women like you and me to put an end to emotional eating called Conquer Emotional Eating. This online program is designed to provide you the education to understand and transform why you emotionally eat and to put a stop to being the victim of your food urges.

Looking from the Inside

Diet mentality goes more than just a relationship with food. It’s the way we approach life in general. We often look at our happiness through a solution that is external to us instead of looking at finding happiness, joy, and fulfillment from inside. In the same way we relate to diet, we think that controlling our external environment a.k.a. our food will lead us to happiness instead of looking from the inside. If you think that you are going to find happiness by eating a certain way, not only you aren’t going to find it there, but you are probably going to fail at it, to begin with. What’s interesting is that, when we put perfection to our food, chances are we also apply perfection in many other aspects of our lives because we lack trust in ourselves.

What does your body want you to eat? That only solves half the problem. The other half of the problem is how we think. It’s how we talk to ourselves. Are we living in diet mentality? Are we approaching food like is a thing that we should be careful around?

Body Image Issues

I’m overweight, but I’m healthier than 90% of the people out there. The reason is because it has nothing to do with weight. Weight is not a causal effect of health, just a by-product. This desire for weight loss beyond health is what we call the body image issue.

Ninety-nine percent of food issue boils down to body image issues. Majority of disordered eating behaviors start
with “I don’t think my body is enough and I feel like I should try and change it by restricting my food.” If you never had the thought, “I wish I was thinner,” you would never have gone on a diet, you would never deal with this binge eating, emotional eating problems. Emotional eating is heavily correlated with dieting. The more you diet, the more you restrict, the more you’re going to turn to food for comfort and that clearly gives us a better perspective on the reason why we overeat and binge. 

Health at Every Size

“It’s a lot easier to stop obsessing about food when we feel good about ourselves.”

There is a whole movement that is trying to demonstrate that beautiful people come in different shapes and sizes.

In this episode I discuss  

Still not practicing gratitude? Maybe you think this is just another woo woo trend and you rather spend more time researching real stuff why you can’t achieve your goals. If this is you, you’ve got to listen to this episode… gratitude has been researched with more than 40 studies (as of 2012) with nothing but positive benefits on us, human beings, even more specially when it comes to changing our mindset and relationship to food... The incredible element of gratitude practice is that: It’s free and no negative risk associated with it

Why Practice Gratitude?

Is it possible that if you carry that day-to-day throughout the year, you would have the same feeling and the same mood. Research and studies have looked at the benefits of gratitude and gratefulness practice and how it can help us. I’m going to look at those studies from the perspective of changing our relationship to food, craving, emotional eating and binging and how it can help us.

I know it does, but many people think that this is just woo woo. They think that this is not real stuff, that what can help me or give me results is a new set of calorie-counting, macro or diet. Well, let me tell you, this is not the reason why you are overeating, obsessing about food, why you are eating on the couch at night. It has to do with your emotions! The crazy thing about gratitude is that it can regulate our emotions. For those of us who overeat, crave and emotional eat, we use food to regulate our emotions. What about if we were to use gratitude to prevent our emotions getting all out of whack, can it really help us?

Let me share with you 6 powerful benefits of gratitude and how it can help you regulate your mood, prevent binging, overeating and emotional eating, but will make you healthier and help you achieve your goals.

6 Powerful Benefits of Gratitude

1. Gratitude makes us happier. A five-minute a day gratitude journal can increase your long-term well-being by more than 10 percent. That’s the same impact as doubling your income! When you write down things that you’re grateful for, it brings the positive aspect of your life top of mind and you carry that throughout the day.

2. Gratitude makes us more likable. Gratitude generates social capital – in two studies with 243 total participants, those who were 10% more grateful than average had 17.5% more social capital. It means that people like them better. Gratitude makes us nicer, more trusting, more social, and more appreciative. We know that we don’t like to be associated with people who are negative, pessimists and those who are always complaining.When we have good social relationship, we eat less.

3. Gratitude makes us healthier. This is where you hit the jack pot when it comes to data…There are several studies that show how gratitude has a physical impact on your body. 16% fewer physical symptoms, you can have better sleep and the list goes on…

4. Gratitude increases self-esteem. A 2014 study published in the Journal of Applied Sport Psychology found that gratitude increased athletes’ self-esteem, an essential component to optimal performance. It makes us worth it and able to receive better because we know we are worth it. Everyday, as we practice gratitude, we see how good our life is.

5. Gratitude improves psychological health. Gratitude reduces a multitude of toxic emotions, from envy and resentment to frustration and regret. It was found to increase happiness and decrease depression.

6. Gratitude increases mental strength. For years, research has shown gratitude not only reduces stress, but it may also play a major role in overcoming trauma. Recognizing all that you have to be thankful for, even during the worst times, fosters resilience.

Take the Challenge

Are you convinced yet to practice gratitude in your life, so you can regulate your emotions at the root and not use food to control emotion? I am speaking based on my personal experience. The idea of gratitude came to me at the point in my life where I wanted to stop overeating and craving. I have tried everything for my physical body. I was left with this other thing and since I have nothing to lose, I just dove in and tried. It was a 30-day challenge to write 3 things that I am grateful about and why. I did this every morning when I woke up. But remember that it is critical to know why we are grateful. Now, my mindset has changed and I am reaping the benefits of gratitude in my life.

If you are not yet practicing gratitude in your life, I challenge you to take a pen and a notebook. Put it beside your bed and write 3 things that you are grateful for and why. Take 5 minutes every morning when you wake up and do this exercise for the next 30 days. 

Be amazed at how gratitude can change your life!

In this episode I discuss  

For many years, I struggled with my own faith. I controlled my life to get the outcome that I desired… no faith or trust. Clearly, it didn’t work well for me. Today, I have faith in myself and the universe… for some, it’s God and other higher power. The name is irrelevant. It’s the act of believing and trusting that all will be good that impacts your health. The studies are clear about the power of meditation and or contemplation.

What is faith?

Faith is the complete trust or confidence in someone or something… Faith, according to the bible, is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. It’s trusting in something that you can’t explicitly prove. Going even beyond that, it takes intellect and trust – believing in something and trusting that it’s actually true. In the same way that we trust that the sun will rise in the morning and it’s gonna go down at night. It’s knowing and trusting that it’s going to happen. Is there really a connection between faith and health?

Faith and health

While researching on this topic, I found a study that talked about the surprising link between faith and health, where faith being either religious or spiritual, and the numbers really blew me away! According to the study, faith can help us cope with adversity, reduce stress, increase hope for a better outcome – optimism. It was also found that 61% of the respondents had greater sense of personal control in challenging life circumstances. 73% of them reported better diet management when they practiced more faith – religious or non-religious. 61%  found greater self-esteem when they practiced more faith in their lives. And we know, ladies, that self-esteem is at the root of our craving, overeating and binging. Could the solution to that be in increasing faith in our lives?  

Last week’s episode,  I talked about the 5 common behaviors that lead straight to self-sabotage which we all have at some point in our lives, but we aren’t aware of their direct effect on us when trying to achieve our goals. I suggest you check it out! You can listen to the episode here. 

Next episode, we’ll have powerful discussion on gratefulness and its benefit on your  health. Stay tuned for this insightful episode!

106 – 5 Common Behaviors That Lead Straight to Self-Sabotage

106 – 5 Common Behaviors That Lead Straight to Self-Sabotage

self-sabotage

In this episode I discuss  

You are on a roll with your goals and all of a sudden out of nowhere, you make a decision that will lead you straight to feeling disappointed and block you from achieving your goal. There are distinctive behaviors that we have in our everyday lives that lead us to self-sabotage… Do you do have these behaviors in your own life?

What is Self-Sabotage?

According to my friend Google, self-sabotage is a behavior that interferes with long-standing goals. It’s having the behaviors that are completely against what you are trying to achieve, but you still do it. Now, that you know what self-sabotage is, the number 1 step you need to do is take responsibility. Take action and avoid those behaviors that will lead you to self-sabotage. What are those?

5 Common Behaviors That Lead Straight to Self-Sabotage

  1. Perfection – The all-or-nothing attitude that prevents you from taking action, waiting for the right time or waiting for the perfect environment or situation.
  2. Procrastination is self-sabotaging. It is a serious sign of it. When you procrastinate and wait to do something because it’s not the right timing or it’s not the right season. Well here’s the good news! There’s not gonna be a perfect time. You’ll only find the perfect time when you start to take action. Yes, you got it right!
  3. Not Feeling Good Enough is the background to why we decide to do something. “We’re not worth it.” “We don’t feel good enough,” so we need to punish ourselves through self-sabotage.
  4. Expecting the worst. Because you feel that you are not good enough, you automatically go to the place where you are not going to be successful. You actually are preparing yourself for failure. You are preventing having the pain of failure, so you are expecting the worst… so you feel not good enough… so you procrastinate because you wanted to be just perfect. See how they are correlated?
  5. Blaming responsibility. “I just don’t have the time to… everyday because I got kids, I need to cook healthy food, I gotta clean the house, I got work… so I just don’t have 15 minutes every day to…” I know exactly because the whole time I was working in the corporate world, that was my number 1 excuse – “I just don’t have time because I got a lot of important things to do.”

And to add one more… Toxic people are a constant in your life. I had this story just last week from someone who’s interested to be in the Going Beyond the Food Academy. She was putting the responsibility on her husband. Clearly, her husband does not trust her and does not have confidence in her that she will achieve her goals. He was not supportive of her enrolling in the program. He is a toxic individual in her life, not believing in her, making her not take action and not jump in to make her life better. If you are surrounded by toxic individuals in your life, that could be a reason why you are self-sabotaging because you are constantly being sent off the message that you are not good enough, that you just don’t do anything right, so might as well do nothing.

What should we do to get out of self-sabotage behaviors?

Stop working on the symptoms, ladies. Stop putting a band-aid by applying more control to your food. Instead, work on those behaviors… Work on accepting that perfection is not something we need to achieve. We don’t need to be perfect. We need to have compassion to ourselves in the same way we need to have compassion for other people. The same thing for procrastination – just be done with it and start!

How do we learn to do those things?

The number 1 step you can take to stop all those self-sabotaging behaviors is to work on yourself. Personal development is the solution. It’s not in the development of another diet or another set of rules on your food. It’s getting to know yourself better by doing exercises such as journaling. You know that I am a big advocate of that because it did change my life. It is an exercise of self-discovery. You can also try meditation, visualization, movement that is associated with breath and self-awareness – walk in nature. You can start developing a relationship with yourself.

Right now, it seems complicated than it really is. You might be thinking, “I don’t even know where to start.” That’s totally okay. Personal development skills and tools are not being taught in most places. This is something we brush over because we believe it’s not important. You can pick up books such the Anatomy of the Spirit. Listen to my prior podcasts that can teach you skills to learn to know yourself better. You can also try the program that I am currently testing – The Going Beyond the Food Academy. It’s a personal development program. In there is a course on Self-Sabotage. I encourage you to check it out and learn more about it to see if it’s something that can help you achieve your personal goals.

Last week’s episode,  we had Debra Atkinson in the show and she talked about the 6 biggest menopause myths that keep you from thriving. I suggest you check it out! You can listen to the episode here. 

Next episode, we’ll have Christina Grenga to talk about the surprising link between faith and health. Stay tuned for this powerful discussion!
