How to Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

 

Holiday weight gain is a thing.  For many of us, it can be THE THING that starts stressing us out as summer is coming to a close. 

Simply because the holidays pop up in our daily lives now in September with Halloween on full display. 

In this video, I share with you my simple tips to help you avoid the dreaded Holiday Weight Gain.

If this is the season that you have decided you are not going to gain weight, then simply don't gain weight.

  • put the things in place to make sure that does not happen. Fast long. Feast well. Train smart. 

Or

  • Decide that the holiday season is JUST the season that you allow yourself to gain a little weight. 
  • stop kidding yourself and allow yourself the opportunity to enjoy what the holidays mean to you. And if that means loosening things up with your fasting and feasting, then give yourself that time. 

How to put things in place to help you reach your own personal holiday goals with weight.

  • Make sure your brain is clear...

Why Am I Craving Sweets

 

Intermittent fasting is a lifestyle approach we can use to help to balance out hunger hormones and reduce or eliminate sugar cravings.

Intermittent fasting is a lifestyle approach we can use to help to balance out hunger hormones and reduce or eliminate sugar cravings.

Leptin, the body’s satiety hormone, primarily controls your appetite and how much of your food’s energy is stored as fat.

Leptin works by a negative feedback loop. When there is MORE LEPTIN you will have a DECREASED APPETITE.

Leptin has also been shown to be a suppressor of sweet taste perception or craving. When you have higher leptin levels, you are less likely to crave sweets.

This negative feedback loop is enhanced when you practice an intermittent fasting lifestyle.

When you are consistently fasting, your LEPTIN levels rise and GHRELIN (your hunger hormone) is lowered.

As more and more of the leptin hormone is secreted in the body, leptin will signal your taste receptors to crave less sweet...

Are You ON and OFF with your Fasting?

 

Consistency over Time with our Intermittent Fasting is how we create a lifestyle that will stand the test of time and help use Age Successfully.

How we speak to ourselves about our decisions matters. On and Off again is just another way of saying Starting over and Quitting. This can be very confusing for our brains. Let's break it down in today's Community Conversation. I will also offer you a better phrase to use to help you stay in the game.

The science is there to prove to us that Intermittent Fasting just makes sense as a means to balance out our hormones and reverse the signs of aging. We have a track record of success with the women who are ebbing and flowing their way through this intermittent fasting lifestyle.  So why are there still women who are ON and OFF with intermittent fasting?

I believe it is a MindSet issue.  There is no emotional buy-in when we are treating Intermittent Fasting as a diet and not approaching it like a lifestyle. 

When you are OFF:

Books I read this year! 2020

2020 was (still is) a year.  The good news is, we made it through. 2021 is right around the corner and I   am ready   for it.

One thing I was totally committed to this year was making sure my head was always in a good book.  It's a goal I had set for myself back in December 2019.  I committed to reading 1 book a month during 2020. Man, am I grateful I set that goal.  It is a goal I set for myself every year. But 2020 was the year I needed it the most.  

Below are the books I chose to read.  Some of the books were total life changers and others, well, just didn't hit with me this year. I will share my thoughts on each below. 

1. Super Attractor ~ Love Gabby Bernstein, just didn't connect with this book.  Finished this one quickly...I think just because I wanted to get through it.  

2. Why We Can't Sleep ~ this one hits the LIFE CHANGER category for me.  It is perfect for any woman entering the middle stages of...
