Tips & Ideas

Want to lose weight and change your eating habits to improve your image and your self-esteem?

We can feel overwhelmed by the failure of our willpower in keeping us on track with a weight loss goal. Starvation is not required to achieve weight loss, in fact, it triggers the body to believe it is starving and causes it to hold onto calories and fats.
Here are some simple steps
to help you on your way:
Cut way way back on sugars (including sugary beverages) and simple starches. Read labels and you may find your food choice has more sugar in it that you thought.
Eat a lean protein serving with every meal. Eat a high protein breakfast. Protein takes longer to metabolize therefore providing feelings of satiety for longer periods.
Eat more low-carb, low Glycemic Index fresh veggies. We need the minerals, nutrients and fibre.
Eat slowly, taking smaller morsels into your mouth and chewing each morsel thoroughly. You’ll clearly get the “full” or “satisfied” feeling.
Eat at least 3 well balanced meals a day. (protein, healthy low-carbs, small portion of healthy fat.
About Anxiety

Tips about Anxiety

“Fight or flight” response can be constantly triggered by lesser, chronic stresses. Worrying, any nagging concerns can cause it to kick in. The fight or flight response produced too much adrenaline and cortisol, which make you more susceptible to health issues like high blood pressure, a weakened immune system, anxiety and depression.

The 4-7-8 breathing activates the vagus nerve, which is responsible for the relaxation response. When the vagus nerve is activated through breathing, it can help reduce cortisol and anxiety. This breathing can also help you get to sleep!

How to do it:

Sit or lie down, get comfortable:

  • Inhale through your nose for a count of 4
  • Hold your breath for a count of 7
  • Exhale through your mouth for a count of 8

Repeat 3– 4 times.
