Addiction Uncovered

 

In February of 2007, I read the “12 Steps Program” for Alcoholics and a shiver ran through me. I am addicted to sugar. Sugar is a drug. I needed to surrender. I needed to feel what I had to feel.

 

Easier said than done. But all this information that I was opening myself up to led me to healing myself day after day – albeit it’s been a long journey.

 

In August of 2007 I read an article by Dr. Mercola titled Is Sugar More Addictive than Cocaine?[1] Its findings reported that an astonishing 94% of rats who were allowed to choose between sugar water and cocaine, chose sugar. Continue reading »

Three Ways to Avoid Overeating at Meals

We all do it.  Sometimes the amazing aroma and delicious flavour gets the best of us.  Especially if we’re a bit on the hungry (or hangry) side.

 

I’m talking about overeating at meals.

 

This can have a big impact on our weight, energy levels, and overall health and well being.  Of course our body needs food to fuel it and we often (usually) eat amazingly healthy foods.

 

But we may still overeat.  In this post I’m going to give you three solid tips for preventing that from happening.  Seriously!  If you can make these three things a regular habit and part of your daily routine you’ve got one up on the overeating cravings. Continue reading »

Habits Are Hard To Change

 

During my early years as a full time Personal Trainer and Aerobics Instructor, I still hadn’t made the complete connection between a healthy body and mind vs. being skinny. Perhaps I shouldn’t be so hard on myself. Change doesn’t happen overnight. You can’t learn everything all at once, but you can listen. But I still thought I could do it all on my own and didn’t need anyone’s “eating advice”. Continue reading »

The Exercise Seed Is Planted

 

After graduating from Western, I didn’t know what to do. So I went to George Brown College for Fitness and Lifestyle Management. Perhaps the powerful effects of exercise were planted while at university and I wanted to explore why exercise was so powerful. This started the ball rolling. It was a very intense course. It provided me with more nutrition training than a doctor, and an intricate look at how the body works physiologically. I learned about every muscle, bone, and organ. I was hooked. We learned how to lift weights, how to burn fat, and how to eat properly. Continue reading »

Picture for a moment, if you will, a pile of garbage that has been left out in the sun and it’s rotting. It stinks! There are flies and maggots crawling all over it. Do you blame the flies and the maggots for being there? Do you try to poison them with chemicals to get rid of them? No, you get rid of the garbage and when the garbage is gone the flies and maggots disappear naturally. Today, modern medicine treats the flies and maggots. We have a pill for everything, but it is not addressing the root cause of the problem. It is my heartfelt hope that you begin to realize that you need to heal the internal pollution within you. The effects of toxins that you eat, drink, breath, put on your skin etc., create the internal landscape of your being. It affects your blood, tissues and cellular fluid and when toxic, as we all are, it becomes the breeding ground for disease and degeneration. The cause of illness is not because of germs, genes or congenital defects (the flies), it’s what is attracting them. Now busy mama, grab your “superwoman detox cape” and let’s get into ACTION.
