This science-based program is different because it focuses on lifestyle changes, not theories that don’t apply to real life.

Your commitment to this program, and your health and appearance, has to be driven by an internal desire to be the best you possible –especially if you have children or are planning to have children.

Obesity doesn’t just come with an unfortunate social stereotype. It is also a life-threatening disease. Being overweight means you’re at a higher risk for a heart attack, diabetes, stroke, fractures… the list goes on and go.

Not only are these types of health events scary- they’re costly! They also make you lose your independence. You’re left at the mercy of caregivers, healthcare professionals, and family members who (even with the best intentions) will become frustrated.

You can do this!

You have the power to follow the program’s simple and yummy meals plans. The done-for-you recipe book and food swap list are empowering and easy to follow. Your food journal helps you identify and correct unhealthy eating habits.

You also will receive real-world grocery lists that can be applied to any neighborhood grocery.

THE BEST PART: You won’t have to spend extra money and drive to the end of the Earth to find the foods recommended by this program. We provide an easy-to-buy guide for whole foods that promote weight loss and are offered at your regular grocery store.

The trailblazing program also delivers educational handouts. You will not have to question “why” we are suggesting certain foods or techniques. We provide the complimentary information so you not only follow this program, but you understand it!

You are not alone with this program.  You will have the support in our Private Holistic Weight Management System Facebook Page

While you are your only advocate in life, we are going to provide you with unlimited support. This program comes with a cheerleading team that will encourage you during the good times and support you when times become stressful or temptation rears its ugly head!

Often times my client say, “if I exercise more I can eat more right.”

Depends …what’cha eating???

If you’re thinking breads, pastas, muffins, fries, chips, cookies etc. (you get the idea–the processed stuff – which they usually are) the answer is, “Depends on what your goals are.”

If you want to feel like the Pillsbury Dough Boy or you don’t mind extra padding on your body or low energy, then by all means, gobble them up.

If you want the fat to melt away, the pounds to drop and your energy to soar, then the best thing is to focus on upping your greens, vegetables with some nuts, seeds and fruit.

It’s not the simple case of just eating less or eating more but rather what you’re eating that determines the quantity. Continue reading »

mre-TheKetoBeginning-300x250_01Friday Fat Loss Tip #1

You can’t achieve your outcome (goal) if you don’t consistently change a behaviour.

One area we focus on during any of the healthy programs that are offered (Busy Mama Reboot, 10 Day Detox, Holistic Weight Loss/Management) is adding healthy fats to our diets. One change could be adding a fish oil supplement, an avocado to your salad, some hemp/chia seeds to your breakfast or making fat lattes – which my clients LOVE!

The important point is to make one change only and make it a habit before you start adding more habits because then you are more likely to stop doing everything!

We’ve been told for years that eating fat will make us fat…but that is not true. Today there are more low fat/no fat products than ever before and our population is getting more obese by the mouthful.

I bet that you might even be afraid to eat more fat during your day…I know I was. To start my morning with oil added to my morning routine does not sound inviting or productive, but let me tell you, in days I could see the fat melting from my waist and thighs. (Also, my energy went up, my cravings went down and the spikes in my mood leveled out). I have also consciously starting adding more healthy fats to each meal and snack.

 

How did I start this new adventure?

For years I have been consuming MCT oil or coconut oil during the day but never in the morning (such as added to my smoothies, cooking with it or a tablespoon before a meal—because I know the brain is 60% fat and good fats are required for healthy living). After reading the Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey, I started to add his brand of Brain Octane to my morning tea (plus his collagen)…this translated into a inches lost from my butt and waistline, a softening of my afternoon slump and my sugar cravings decreasing.

Then I stumbled upon healthfulpursuit.com and loved what holistic nutritionist Leanne Vogel was saying and bought her e-book, The Keto Beginning: Complete Guide +30-day Meal Plan…which has 17 chapters, 147 pages + over 70 high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein, dairy-, gluten-, sugar-, grain-, legume-free recipes. It’s the rocket fuel for achieving flawless health and effortless weight loss through sound nutrition practices and vibrant food preparation in ways you’ve never seen before.

It has further expanded my knowledge about nutrition and it is definitely worth the read. You can pick up a copy here…..

 

Which brings me to today…Your Fat Loss Friday Tip….What behaviour change can you make to add more healthy fat into your diet?? If one is making a fat latte, then check out these super recipes.

If you can’t seem to sort out what to do, then email me at tanya@moveyourbody.ca for Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching and I will be more than happy to chat with you.

 

In the meantime…enjoy this Turbo Fat Charge Latte from Leanne…

This Turbo Fat Charge Latte formula has…

  • The MCT oil: boosts metabolism, kicks up our fat burning.
  • The cacao butter: boosts serotonin levels so you start the day off happily.
  • The collagen: resets leptin, so that your body understands what fuel is what.
  • The hemp hearts: send the message to your body; specifically your hormone system, that everything is safe. 3 tablespoons of hemp hearts are 0 net carbs, so shouldn’t stop your “fast” if you’re practicing intermittent fasting.

 

 

Turbo Fat Charge Latte

  • 8 oz. brewed decaf coffee or regular coffee or your favorite tea or hot water
  • 1 tablespoon MCT oil or coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon cacao butter
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts
  • 2-4 drops alcohol-free stevia, optional
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed collagen

 

Instructions

  1. Brew coffee or tea, add to the jug of your high-powered blender along with MCT oil, cacao butter, hemp hearts and stevia. Blend on high for 1 minute. During the last 10 seconds, add collagen. Transfer to a cup and enjoy.

If this is overwhelming…just start by adding a tsp to tbsp. of coconut or MCT to your tea or coffee in the morning. This action step is better than taking none at all.

 

Notes

MCT Oil vs. Coconut Oil: Totally a preference thing. Do what feels right.
How To Make Vegan: Replace the collagen with a touch-more hemp seeds, up to 3 tablespoons (3 tablespoons = 3g carbs, 9g protein)

 

What is MCTs and the Benefits

According to rebootedbody.com, MCT oil is a concentrated form of coconut oil. The extremely healthy saturated fat in coconut is comprised of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT). And MCT oil is a concentrated form of that fat. However, according to healthimpactnews.com, MCT oil has had the amazing fat – lauric acid removed and the author states that eating coconut oil is better…if you are confused, don’t be.  Balance it out. I cook with coconut oil and use it on my hair, skin and teeth. I drink MCT oil and use it for my teeth. Play around and find out what works for you.

Benefits…

It’s a boost for your metabolism. MCTs increase the body’s ability to burn more energy by increasing thermogenesis.

It’s a kick-start to awesome weight loss. MCTs may help reduce the size of fat cells, leading to weight loss.

It’s a constant, steady energy. MCTs provide rapid-fire energy, directly to the places that need it most, burns clean and constant without the energy lulls.

Its rocket fuel for your brain. MCTs quickly raise ketone levels to provide your brain with an alternative fuel that won’t die out.

Let me know how adding MCT or coconut oil to your morning changes affects your outcome…

 

Healthy Hugs,

Tanya

Lettuce Enjoy This Smoothie and the Amazing Benefits of Lettuce!

 

Looking for something other than chomping on a salad today??  Try this Smoothie for a change.

lettuce guinapea eating it

 

Lettuce has been called “the perfect weight loss food” but it is so much more. With amazing healing benefits and calories comprised of 20 percent protein, it could be called “gorilla food” instead!

Should you put Romaine or Iceberg lettuce in your Smoothie??? You decide:

Romaine vs. Iceberg Lettuce

Romaine has:
Less sugars and sodium                  Twice the protein
Twice the calcium                            Three times the vitamin K
Four times the iron                          Eight times the vitamin C
Seventeen times the vitamin A

The general rule is: Choose red, green and dark colored foods over whites. Red and green leaf lettuce is more nutritional than iceberg.

 

A few health benefits:

1. Low Calorie Content and Weight Loss Superstar

Lettuce has only 12 calories for one shredded cup. Making it a weight loss superstar!
2. Improves your Digestion

Lettuce contains fiber and cellulose. Besides filling you up, fiber improves your digestion. Improving your digestion may not sound like a good thing for losing weight, but it is actually essential for long term weight control.

3. Omega-3 Fatty acids.

Romaine lettuce has a two to one ratio of omega-3 to omega-6. That’s a great ratio.
The fat content in lettuce is not significant UNLESS you eat a lot–but we actually suggest you do!

4. Complete Protein

Romaine lettuce’s calories are 20 percent protein. Like all whole foods, much of this protein is complete, but the amount can be increased by combining with balancing proteins.

5. Helps with Insomnia

The white fluid that you see when you break or cut lettuce leaves is called lactucarium.

This has relaxing and sleep inducing properties similar to opium but without the strong side effects. Simply eat a few leaves or drink some lettuce juice.

6. Lettuce is Great for Detoxing

The minerals in lettuce help remove toxins and keep your acid/alkaline balance in order. Once you are balanced on this level there are a host of benefits including greater energy, clearer thinking, deep restful sleep, and youthful skin.

7. Low Glycemic Index

Lettuce has an average glycemic index of 15, but because it has so few calories, its glycemic load is considered zero. Foods with low glycemic indexes are great for anyone watching their blood sugars for medical reasons, or for weight management.

8. Whole Life Food

Lettuce is almost always eaten raw, providing us with many micronutrients not found in cooked or processed food. Eating raw food also adds vital energies not recognized by nutritional science.

Large food corporations have not found a way to package lettuce long term or stick it in cans or boxes. Let’s hope they never do!

In fact, lettuce is one of the few foods which can be found organic and prewashed already in bins for you to eat immediately.

Ready for your Smoothie!!!!  Use organic ingredients and enjoy!

 

1 small head of romaine      ¾ cup blueberries    ½ cup mango                     ½ raspberries or cherries                1 cup water

OR

1 small head of romaine      ¾ cup blueberries    1 frozen banana                   1 tbsp vitamineral greens                1 cup water                5 ice cubes           1 tbsp flax seed

Healthy fat that is a highly efficient fuel that helps your body burn fat and create instant energy. Can raise your HDL (good cholesterol) and help to protect you against heart disease. Coconut oil will boost your immune system, plus it’s a natural antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory, making it very effective at combating yeast and parasites.4

Coconut Oil is ideal for dry, rough and wrinkled skin because it contains MCFA’s (medium chained fatty acids) and is easily absorbed by the skin. It prevents stretch marks and lightens existing ones.  Its antiseptic elements keep the skin young, healthy and free from infections.  It’s also an excellent lip balm5.

I keep it in my bathroom, kitchen and a little jar in my purse.

Consuming coconut oil regularly restores thyroid function, often relieves hypothyroidism and actually increase the metabolic rate, leading to weight loss

You’ve got to be pooping

better digestion photo

You can do sit-ups and crunches till the cows come home, but if you aren’t moving the waste out of your body, where is it hanging out?? According to Dr. Chang, losing weight is a simple matter of increasing the efficiency of the digestive system.

 Increasing efficiency of Digestive System for Weight Loss

Quality Probiotic

Do you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), bloating, gas or constipation, bad breath, acne?  Starting with a high quality probiotic may be just what is needed for you!

Buyer beware- there are lots of probiotics on the market, so go after quality. I use a powered probiotic formula ($33.00) & switch it up with Syntol AMD (advanced microflora delivery) from Upayanaturals. I also consume Xobiotic chocolates from Xocai as chocolate is an amazing carrier for probiotics. (look for reputable sources from your local health food store).

A few probiotic food suggestions include; raw goat milk or kefir on an empty stomach, cultured and fermented vegetables such as kimchi and pickles. Be wary of yogurts as the food colouring, aspartame and sugar content negate the probiotic effect.

Kimberly Synder’s, Probiotic & Enzyme Salad is a wonderful addition to your diet, or if you are short on time, add 2 tablespoons to a 1/4cup of raw sauerkraut to your lunch or dinner.  I purchase mine at the local health food store or Upayanaturals.

Studies have indicated that weight gain and obesity are a consequence of inadequate probiotic levels.1

The ideal healthy ratio of “good” to “bad” bacteria is 85% to 15%, or 9 to 1. Unfortunately, due to lifestyle and environmental factors, the vast majority of the population is severely lacking when it comes to good probiotic bacteria, throwing their gut flora ratio completely out of whack.

These lifestyle and environmental factors include, but are not limited to, exposure to:

  • Sugar
  • Artificial sweeteners of any kind—found in “diet” beverages and food items, chewing gum, yogurt, and even toothpaste
  • Processed foods
  • Chlorinated water
  • Pollution
  • Antacids
  • Laxatives
  • Alcoholic beverages (beer, liquor, wine)
  • Agricultural chemicals and pesticides
  • Antibiotics (from medications and/or antibiotics found in meat and dairy products that we ingest)

 2-minute Belly Rub

digestion rubbing

This exercise works like a gentle colonic irrigation that helps speed up a sluggish digestive system (which usually carries at least 5lbs of fecal matter within it). The exercise effectively metabolizes the fatty tissues around the stomach and intestines, and flushes them out of your body.

Belly Rub Method:

1)      Lie flat on your bed or floor

2)      Expose your abdominal area (tummy)

3)      Rub your hands vigorously to create heat (about 15 seconds)

4)      Place one hand on your belly button and begin to rub in an outward circular motion

5)      Use fairly firm but comfortable pressure at a slow pace (1 circle/second)

6)      Concentrate on the heat building up in, around and throughout your stomach

7)      Do about 40-50 circles (about 2 minutes)

Tips:

  • Important to keep abdominals warm and to warm up hands
  • Do in the morning before getting out of bed and just before you go to bed
  • Don’t do immediately after a heavy meal, pregnant or if you have moderate to severe abdominal conditions

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the stomach is the center of energy. Besides melting away adipose tissue (fat), it can also:

  • Stimulate the abdominal organs
  • Help to speed up slow digestion & remedies constipation
  • Increase blood circulation in the abdominal area
  • Help to heal indigestion, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and the adverse effects of overeating.

Start your day with….

A glass of warm lemon or lime water first thing in the morning! This Yogic or Ayurvedic ritual was primarily used for stimulating digestion and eliminating ama, the Ayurvedic term for toxic slime that builds up in the gastro-intestinal or GI tract. Check out the 10 reasons why this is an important addition to your daily routine.

So, what’s all the fuss about this GI Tract and how does it influence weight loss?

In reality, your G.I. tract is MUCH more than a digestion center; in fact, it is quite literally your second brain as well as being “home” to 80% of your immune system.2

So, with all these great tips, improve your digestion, lose some fat and enjoy the health benefits!

 

Don’t forget to include these nifty tricks into your daily living including dry brushing.
