Precious Information for Permanent Weight LossWritten by Isabelle Berard
Continued from page 1
Be as precise as possible. You have to be able to know if you've reached your goals. You have to know exactly what you will look like and what you will feel. You have to know that you've finally made it. Keep situation in hand. You must not wait until you are happy or until things change by themselves. Make sure that your goals only concern things you are able to take action on and in control. Eat more often The most difficult part of any weight loss program is dealing with food cravings. You can prevent cravings by eating enough throughout day. Break your meals down into 5 or 6 small ones. Eat nutrient-dense foods Fat burning compatible foods are high in fiber, high in water content, and low in sugar and fat. The idea is to consume foods that are as close to their natural state as possible. The right foods to include are: Lean proteins (chicken, turkey, fish, sea food, lean meats) Fresh fruits and vegetables Beans and legumes Unsalted, oil-free nuts and seeds Whole grains cereals (whole wheat bread, whole wheat pasta, brown rice, couscous) The wrong foods to avoid are: Foods and beverages with sugar White flour, white pasta, white bread, and white rice Chips, cookies, bakeries, chocolate and candies Processed foods containing saturated fat, trans fat or hydrogenated oils Foods that sugar or fat appears first or second on list of ingredients. No matter where calories come from, eating more than you burn will make you gain weight. Some foods are easier to overeat though. High-energy-density foods, that have little fiber or water content, take up very little stomach space. Bust cycle of overeating We often overeat because we are emotionally hungry. That emotional hunger draws us into a cycle, in which emotions trigger overeating, which in turn triggers more stress, depression, boredom, fear, loneliness and emotional emptiness. And so cycle continues. You have to understand why you overeat, then use appropriate strategy to get your brain and your body on same healthy path. Here are some solutions, when you're on an urge to eat: Move. Go for a walk or a run or jump rope for 60 seconds. Ride it out. Create a distraction. Call a friend, take a bath, read a book, listen to music. Eat something other than bad foods. Eat a small amount of healthful food. Talk to yourself. Ask "Am I really hungry?" When you discover a distraction or strategy that helps you cope with externally triggered eating, note it on a list, and refer to this list next time. Eat satisfying food. Instead of filling up on junk, eat healthful, nourishing foods that please your palate. Stop eating when you're full. After a binge, reflect on what contributed to it. Discover nonfood ways to cope. Before you start binging, ask yourself: "Is that what I really need?"

Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #8Written by Tami Close
Continued from page 1
Make decision today to gain your power back and lose weight. The answers are within you. Keep focused on your goal. Surround yourself with people who will support your decision and release those who won’t. Give up lifestyle that supported your weight gain. See weight as a gift to you so that you will be conscious in becoming all you can be. We all get off track and weight becomes a reminder that you want something different, something more meaningful. Again, it’s very simple. To quote Wayne Dyer, “Surround yourself with conditions you want to produce.”
Who are people you are going to surround yourself?
Who are people you are going to have limited contact?
Who are people you are going to let go?
Just to let you know what is coming up in January. I’ll be offering a teleconference call to help you outline your goals for 2005. The only cost to you is price of phone call. I’m so excited to be able to talk to you—I’m shakin’ my booty right now in anticipation.
Remember that you are already whole and complete just as God created you. You’re peeling back layers to discover beauty that already exists—you only need to see it. Quick, grab a mirror or go stand in front of mirror and repeat after me. Put energy into these words and smile while you’re saying them.
I am most beautiful person on this earth! I am a wonderful child of God! I am powerful! I am God’s gift to world! I am my ideal weight! I love myself!
Thank you for being you!
Love and hugs,
