Who wants a young looking skin?

As women the importance we place on how our skin, glow, and overall appearance is often so important. We choose to cover up any default in our skin as a mean of self-acceptance and approval from others. 

What if I told you that your skin, though it breaks out, pimple, dryness and the more severe condition is actually speaking to us? Sending us messages to look within to re balance our body and mind. Yes! What you see from the outside on your skin is actually signals your body is sending you that there is a much deeper issue to be resolved.

Clear Skin From Within

The key to having a beautiful skin is from within yourself. Your gut plays a major role but also your emotions. Dr. Trevor Cates will teach us what we need to do from our plate to our mind. Also, learn why the “beauty products” that are supposed to be good for our skin can actually do more harm.

The last episode, I talked about how the secret fear of success many live with but unfortunately do not know we have. It’s an episode that will speak to you about what is fear of success but also how to recognize and move forward.You must believe that you can believe in yourself! You can listen to the episode here.

Next episode 83 will be a story telling ” I just gave up…”. A story about how we react to words that are said to us may lead us to better self-awareness.

081 – The Secret Fear of Success

081 – The Secret Fear of Success

fear of success

Listen to the episode:

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS | Stitcher

I came back from California and posted a quick video in my community to get some inspiration on what this podcast was going to be about. I wanted to know what you needed….

This is what came through from a member:

“I have a fear of succeeding in weight loss. Like people will treat me differently as I lose weight. They will expect even more perfection from me.”

First I have to say to you, putting that question forward, you have a high level of self-awareness, which is amazing and will bring you so close to the solution.

For most of us, when we embark the weight loss journey, we aren’t self aware because we have disconnected ourselves from our body. What I mean by disconnecting is that we no longer want to be in our body. We don’t feel the sensation in our body because we don’t like our body and reject it. And so we close off to listening to our body. We don’t care for our physical body. We’re not eating well, not moving, not managing our stress, etc… We disconnect.

It’s very hard to be self aware of our own SELVES when we are not in present with ourselves, mind and body.

Symptoms of “Fear of Success”

 
For most women, fear of success is not even something that they are aware of. It’s a subconscious thought or reaction. It’s not present in their realm of knowledge.

They make choices that will lead them to failure without even knowing that they are making these choices because they’re afraid of being successful. That’s true for most people. In fact, if you ask anyone around you in the process of making changes in their lives, if they are afraid of success, they will say NO, emphatically say NO, because being afraid of success goes against logic.

So what does fear of success in weight loss look like?

  • What if I change my habits and it doesn’t work? Or what if I don’t get the results that I want? What will my friends and family think of me?
  • I have been down this path before and I wasn’t able to do it all the way. Why would things be any different this time?
  • I lost weight before and wasn’t able to keep it off.
  • If I don’t have my weight to hide behind anymore, will I need to show up? I won’t have any excuse anymore. Just like our community members… they will expect even more from me.
  • I have been overweight all of my adult life…I don’t know how to be anyone else.
  • People won’t like me as much… they will feel I’m in competition with them.

Does this sound familiar?

Self Awareness: The First Step in Quitting the Fear of Success

The first step to overcome the fear of failure is being aware that we are in fact in a “fear of success mode”. Self-awareness 101. Be present with your thoughts.

When you make a choice that isn’t in alignment with your goals… stop for a moment. Then ask yourself: Why am I making this choice that isn’t in alignment with my goals? What is driving this choice? Take a moment to reflect and observe your thoughts. This is hard to do when you aren’t used to it. It’s difficult because reflecting on our choices will bring us to a space of self-responsibility and self-awareness, and that’s not comfortable at first.

Through your reflection and self-awareness, is it possible that you are fearing success? Are you showing any of the symptoms that I have outlined above? If you answer if maybe or yes … there you have it. Now you know. It’s only fear of success.

Fear of Success is OK!

Fear of success is OK. It’s normal. Success means jumping into the unknown — a new area, a new state of being, a new relationship, a new income… a new body image. Success means getting out of your comfort zone into a new zone…” the uncomfortable zone”. It’s normal to feel insecure about this process… especially if this is not something you are used to doing.

Fear is a primitive reaction from your subconscious mind when face with change. Your subconscious mind is simply trying to protect you. Your subconscious mind wants to keep you where it can best protect you, where it knows how everything works, and where it thinks you are safe.

When you’re aware of this primitive behavior, you can best manage fear, anxiety, and worry. Know that it is normal and that you can choose to move forward and up anyway.

Know that success will ONLY come to you if you move out of your comfort zone. You’ve got to move up to be successful, girl!

Going Beyond the Food Formula

Understand: Be aware of the choices that aren’t aligned with your goals. Ask yourself why you are making these choices.

Accept: That you fear success and that it is a normal reaction to moving out of your comfort zone, which is necessary for your to achieve a different state (aka goals)

Take responsibility: When you feel the fear and the anxiety, acknowledge these feelings and move forward and up knowing that this is not a true fear.

The last episode, I had an insightful interview with Ella from the On Air with Ella podcast. We talked about overcoming the impostor syndrome and building self-confidence. I highly recommend this episode! You can listen to it here.

077 – How to Put Yourself First Without Guilt

077 – How to Put Yourself First Without Guilt

How to put yourself first without guilt

Listen to the episode:

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS | Stitcher


The word Self Care is central to many of my teaching. You need to learn how to put yourself first without guilt because I strongly believe and know that if you don’t take care of yourself…no one will.

There will no be a magical angel that will come down from the sky to sprinkle you with fairy dust, making you more in control of your eating, leaner, or more fit.

You’re are going to have to do the work. The only way for you to do the work is for you to actually make time in your schedule to do it.

I’m sure I’m not teaching anything new here… you know it intellectually. However, when you try to do it, you might find yourself struggling with the feeling of guilt. Taking the time to go for a walk is not nearly as important as your son’s competitive sports or your boss’ need of the new report tomorrow. Or even your mom’s need to go shopping… maybe your sister needing to vent about her husband.

Because if you say yes to yourself, you say no to others, which means they may not like you as much or not think of you as highly. Worse, they may think you are selfish and being selfish is sooo bad. Right?

If You Don’t Fill Your Health Bank Account, Who Will?

 
Your health is your like your bank account. No one will come in and fill up your savings account with loads of money so your won’t have to worry about your financial future. Miracles do happen, but let’s be realistic. We can stand still and wait for miracles to happen or we take action to create the change. And for you to be able to do this, you must learn how to put yourself first without guilt.

If you don’t take care of yourself, who will? Like seriously, no one will. No one can step into your body for you, clear up your mind, de-stress or move your beautiful body for you. The only person capable of that is you.

See the investment of time in yourself as filling your bank account so your can give more to others. You can be a better version of yourself and give more profoundly and in a more meaningful way.

If you take time to cook the food that are best for your body, your mood will be better. Consequently, you will be more loving to your partner or kids. If you take the time to go for a mid-day walk at work, you will be more productive in the afternoon for your boss. If you say no to your girl friend’s request to go the movies you really have zero interest in seeing, you will be less resentful next time you see her and be able to go the mindfulness course you’ve needed to take for the last few months and will become a more present friend..

Get it? Invest in your bank account to be a better person for others.

How to Put Yourself First Without Guilt: Know Your Worth

 
By simply choosing to make other’s needs, time, and desires more important than yours, you are making a statement to others that they are more important than you. You are telling others that you’re not worth as much as they are. You are fueling the vicious cycle of expectation on yourself.

It’s not their fault… you have created that belief, that perception of yourself by not making yourself a priority. By never making choice for you and by not taking the time to care for yourself, you are telling them that you do not think your are worth it. So they will keep asking and expecting.

The key to stopping this vicious cycle is this: accepting that you are worth as much as the other people in your life. When you do this, you will start making different choices. It will be uncomfortable at first, but you will send the message. In time, the people around you will start seeing you differently and will treat you with more respect.

Why? Because you are respecting yourself! You are respecting yourself by knowing your worth and putting yourself first. By putting yourself first, you will make choices that show people around you how much you’re worth.

Why are We Feeling Guilty?

 
Guilt is a way we have of recognizing that we have not lived up to our own values and standards. The question for you is, are the values and standards you are feeling guilty about good for you?

Are the values and standards you are feeling guilty about promote the best version of yourself or OTHERS?

Know that as you change your own perception of yourself, as you start believing in yourself and knowing your worth, the guilt will no longer be present. You will know deep down inside that you are making the best choices for yourself and others. Because when you’re the best version of yourself, you can give more of yourself to others. Keeping that in mind is how to put yourself first without guilt!

075 – #1 Strategy to Break Emotional Eating

075 – #1 Strategy to Break Emotional Eating

#1 strategy to break emotional eating

Listen to the episode:

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS | Stitcher


I received a phenomenal question from one of our community members, and I knew so many of your would benefit from it. Here is the exact question I have received from Emily from our community: “What is your #1 strategy to break emotional eating ( or addiction) and is it even possible to do without outside (and regular) support/ help?”

Well, let me get this out of the way first: Is it possible to stop emotional eating without outside help/ support? Yes and yes, BUT you need to first be aware and accept the following concept that I’m about to explain to you. If you know this concept and accept it at your core, then yes it can be done without outside help.

So what is that concept? Well it’s going to sound very simplistic and for some unbelievable. So stay open and stay with me…

You Can’t BREAK Emotional Eating

 
If you’re looking for the #1 strategy to break emotional eating, then here’s some news: You can’t break emotional eating because there is NOTHING to break. I know this may sound completely crazy and unbelievable to many of you… but trust me it’s true.

Emotional eating is not a habit to be broken, not a disease to be treated, not a lack of discipline or weakness to be strengthened or a way that your body is letting your down. It is process in which your mind/ body is trying to communicate with you.

Emotional eating is a way in which your body is trying to tell you that something is out of balance. Trying to break a natural communication process between you and your body / mind/ spirit is a sure way to fail or even more cause more problems!

That you are asking “what is the #1 strategy to break emotional eating “ means that you know that the cause of your eating is rooted in your emotions, which is, in my world, an advanced thought. Most people aren’t aware that a part or all of their cravings is in fact caused by their emotions. So good for you to know that!

If You Can’t Break Emotional Eating, Then What?

 
If you can’t break emotional eating, then what can you do to stop emotional eating? Well, I want you to replace “break” with “understanding”.

Given that emotional eating is a communication process between you and your body/ mind/ spirit, the only way to prevent this is to keep this communication channel open. It’s about listening — listening to what your body /mind /spirit is trying to tell you and take action.

The moment you stop fighting with your emotional eating and start listening, a major breakthrough will happen. I promise that it works!

To listen to your cravings, you must get quiet and connect with yourself. I call this process “The Crave Cure Formula”. You can do this easily via a simple breathing exercise and time. To know more about the “Crave Cure Formula,” go right here.

My #1 Strategy for Emotional Eating

 
My #1 strategy for emotional eating is simple yet challenging — listening. Listening can be overwhelming, or for some, scary. You see, today’s world is not conducive to listening to ourselves. It’s actually the opposite. It seems that solutions to almost every ache and pain that people sell to us require something “outside” of ourselves.

That’s why my answer to “Is it possible to stop emotional eating without outside (and regular) support/ help?” I say a strong YES! Because the real solution comes from within, from listening in. No one else can do that for us but ourselves. We can be taught how to listen, which is what Crave Cure Program does. But the actual process of healing emotional eating can only be done by us, internally.

074 – From Restriction to Food Freedom with Meg Doll – She Shares Her Story

074 – From Restriction to Food Freedom with Meg Doll – She Shares Her Story

food restriction

Food restriction is a topic that I’ve never discussed in the Crave Cure series. I mainly help women who have issues with emotional eating. Also, I never had any experience with food restriction. However, whether we struggle with emotional eating or food restriction, the path to healing is the same. So in this episode, I’m touching on food restriction for the very first time. I’ve brought in a guest who is intimately familiar with this issue.

Meg Doll’s Story

 
Meg Doll is a registered nutritionist, author, and eating disorder survivor. Her struggle with food restriction began when she was 10 years old, when she lost a close family member. She began restricting food as a means to cope with the pain of losing someone dear to her. With the help of her parents, she quickly recovered. However, at the age of 15, she relapsed and the struggle dragged on for years. After recovering to anorexia, she also struggled with disordered eating.

Fortunately, she recovered from her eating disorder and disordered eating, studied to become a nutritionist, and is now spreading a message of hope to women who struggle with eating disorders. 

Highlights of the Interview

 
Eating Disorder Versus Disordered Eating – Eating disorder is a mental illness. It is not a choice. On the other hand, disordered eating comes from having a disordered relationship with food. It’s using food to numb the emotions you don’t want to feel (aka emotional eating) or having an obsession with food. 

On Thoughts that Trigger Restrictive Food Behavior – In order to overcome food restriction, you must bring awareness to the talk that’s going on inside your head and disassociate yourself from them. You must realize that these thoughts aren’t yours. They’re from the voices inside your head. However, you do have a choice on how to respond to these voices. 

On Letting Go and Tuning In – Meg Doll shares that, after she overcame food restriction, she became obsessed with meal plans. However, she eventually learned to eat intuitively. She says that we must learn to let go of the things, such as rules, that are no longer serving us and to tune into ourselves. Too many rules leave no room for intuition.

The Road to Recovery – There is no straight road to recovery. There will be highs and lows. But as you progress, these highs and lows will be less dramatic.

On Loving Yourself – If you want to recover from an eating disorder, you must love yourself first. There are four building blocks of self-love: self talk, self-compassion, self-acceptance, and self-care. Megan discusses this in her upcoming book.

Last episode, I talked about how to start believing in yourself. It’s an episode that will speak to you especially if you struggle with self-doubt. You must believe that you can believe in yourself! You can listen to the episode here

Next episode will be exciting because I’m about to share my #1 strategy for overcoming emotional eating! So stay tuned!

073 – How to Start Believing in Yourself

How to start believing in yourself

Listen to the episode:

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS | Stitcher 


How do you start believing in yourself that you can actually change your life and your relationship with food?

That’s one of the questions I got from a member of my online community “Going Beyond The Food.”

That’s word for word from Vicky. Does it sound familiar to you?

The reason why I decided to share this question with all of you is because I know that Vicky’s question is one that many of us have asked ourselves, but only a few will ever voice out loud.

I know I certainly didn’t voice this question and I struggled with it for years.

From the outside, anyone looking at me and my life would have never thought I didn’t believe in myself. I actually worked very hard so no one could figure it out…like worked so hard that my health collapsed.

So I want to applaud Vicky for asking this question and thankful that she gave me the inspiration for writing this blog and recording this podcast.

I’m grateful for all the women in my online community!

How to Start Believing in Yourself

 
If you want to learn how to start believing in yourself that you can improve your life, start a new routine or dive deep into your emotional eating. start with one thing… and one thing only.

The first step to ANY change…and I mean ANY, is : Awareness and Acceptance.

Awareness That You Had “Belief in Yourself”

 
You must be aware that you were born with the capacity to believe in yourself… you were given this magic skill at birth. Believing in yourself is what caused you to evolve and grow up to be a terrible two-year-old toddler, a three-year-old toddler thirsty for knowledge and asking questions…etc. It’s a God-given trait.

If you are asking the question : How do you start believing in yourself that you can actually change your life and relationship with food? It means that somewhere along the way, something happened, someone said something, or perhaps an event caused you to lose or lessen that innate “belief in yourself”.

Belief in ourselves is also fostered by our environment, parents, siblings, elders, and caregivers as we grow up …. It’s reinforced by their words, actions, and reactions to our behaviors, words and/or what some may call achievements.

You may or may not have received this “fuel” from your environment as you lived your life. You may or may not have been supported in growing and nurturing this belief in yourself.

You may have been encouraged to believe in yourself only if you were “good enough” or perfect enough.

Your belief in yourself may have been conditional on something …

There are too many possibilities for me to mention, but I hope you understand the idea that you were born with the ultimate belief in yourself. However, as you journeyed through life, something happened that may have caused you to lose that belief in yourself.

Accept That It is in You to Be Able to Believe in Yourself

 
The hardest part of learning how to start believing in yourself is actually accepting that you already have that innate belief in yourself.

That’s right…now you know it’s there inside of you. It was just buried under the criticisms and disappointments that have accumulated through the years. Deep down inside, you believe in yourself. Yet somehow, your subconscious mind (aka your ego) is running a loop tape in your mind that leads you to “not believe in yourself” or to doubt yourself.

If this is new to you, I encourage you to read this blog post and listen to Bruce Lipton’s interview  so you can understand the concept of the subconscious mind and ego.

Accepting that you have it in you to believe in yourself is difficult because it may cause you to get out of your own comfort zone.

Accepting that you believe in yourself and acknowledging the fact that some environmental factors may have buried your “self belief” may cause you to actually make the changes that you have been wanting to make.

Accepting that it is as simple as that… you have IT. You simply need to believe that you believe in yourself.

Next Steps to Fostering Your Belief in Yourself

 
The next step in learning how to start believing in yourself is taking responsibility of the new awareness that you have this innate belief in yourself.how-to-start-believing-in-yourself-3

Take responsibility to work on the “loop tape” running in the background of your mind that says, “I do not believe in myself.” For this topic, I would refer you to a very powerful interview I had with Sean Croxton and his free manual on how to change your mindset.

It’s is possible to change but work needs to be done… Now go out and do it! Do the work, get out of your comfort zone, face you fear, and grow!

Last episode, I had a great interview with Karen Thomson on sugar addiction. If you’ve been battling with eating disorders and sugar addiction, you must listen to this episode! You can access it here

Next episode, we’ll have another powerful story from a guest who has been through a journey from food restriction to food freedom. You’ll want to listen to this episode, so stay tuned!
