How to Stress Less & Love Yourself More

How to Stress Less & Love Yourself More

Stress & Release We are such creatures of taking everything personally and feeling the weight of hurt and pain, rejection or worth. I love Anthony Hopkins philosophy that it’s none of my business what other’s think of me. The problem is I didn’t know that as a teenager and took EVERYTHING personally. Until a few years ago, well into my thirties, my mind and body was filled with the anguish of thinking I wasn’t good enough, pretty enough, and especially not thin enough… I ended up spending the majority of my life creating my own internal stress and contributing to my

Lose the Stress and Lose the Weight

Lose the Stress and Lose the Weight

Mind-Body Weight Loss If you’re stressed out, worried, fearful or lonely, the impact on your health is immediate and the hormonal imbalances created are the same imbalances that cause food cravings, which also lead to weight gain. This stress, tension and fear might be a demanding job, a hectic family life, an abusive spouse or any of the millions of emotional challenges we all face in life—but the biochemical result is the same. Your hormones become imbalanced, your food cravings increase, and you’ll very likely gain weight. As time goes on, your cortisol levels rise, your blood sugar sky-rockets, your

How Mind-Body Stress is Causing Your Weight Gain

How Mind-Body Stress is Causing Your Weight Gain

Stress and YOUR Belly Many of you know how passionately I feel about educating everyone on STRESS – understanding what it is, your personal stress triggers, how your body responds to YOUR stress, and ways to induce the relaxation response regularly in COUNTERACTING your stress response. Stress affects our whole body – functions and hormones – especially our weight. And weight is something that we all have issues with at some stage in our lives. Cortisol, also known as THE stress hormone and the FAT storing hormone, is a major contributor to our excess belly fat when we’re chronically excreting stress hormones that

Natural, Functional and Fun Movement for Energy, Strength and Weight Loss

Natural Movement, Real Food, Healthy Mindset Last week on my way home from a 4 day practitioner retreat on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, I stopped into Buderim Forest Park to meet with Clint and Aimee from Primal Influence. They view health and fitness from a similar holistic approach as I do, which is why I wanted to talk with them about what they do, how they do it and why. Clint came from a background of not being able to enjoy a lot of physical activity because of his size. This resonated with where I started many years ago at holding

Sugar Facts For Your Health & Waistline

Sugar Facts For Your Health & Waistline

The Facts About Sugar By Dr Libby (Check out My Top 5 Natural Sweeteners) Sugar is the hot topic in the nutrition world at the moment. It is no secret to many that we are eating too much of what has been coined by some as “white poison.” The World Health Organizations (WHO) recommends that the intake of sugars be less than 10 percent of total energy intake. Yet those living in Australia and New Zealand are having an amount that far exceeds this. What is most surprising is just how far this substance has invaded the modern diet. Salad dressings,

Do you suffer from belly fat, sugar cravings and tiredness?

Do you suffer from belly fat, sugar cravings and tiredness?

Mood swings, sugar cravings, belly fat! When I entered into a purposeful recovery from my Bulimia Nervosa, I really didn’t know much at all about just how much I’d confused my hormones. I had no understanding whatsoever about how our food literally creates our hormones and chemical messengers to transport information and feedback between the body and brain. I didn’t understand biochemistry, or blood chemistry, and I certainly didn’t realise how food chemistry affected brain chemistry – I hated science and maths at school! Now I do know these things. I’ve researched, I’ve suffered, I’ve lost and I’ve gained. And now I can share

Nuts for Coconut! There’s certainly a huge turnaround in recognising the health benefits of Coconut Oil from the days when it was simply labelled a saturated fat and bad for you.

HOW You Eat is Just As Important As WHAT You Eat and WHEN!

HOW You Eat is Just As Important As WHAT You Eat and WHEN! Many of you have heard me talk about food designers before. They have the task of creating the perfect ratio of fat, sugar and salt in a food product that will create opiates in the brain to have you craving more! People already restricting themselves find these cravings overwhelming and will often berate themselves and feel like failures, believing they have no willpower or motivation. This often leads to comfort or emotional eating, which of course is only feeding the cravings. People try so hard to eat healthy,

Number One Cause of Fat and Diabetes

Number One Cause of Fat and Diabetes

I’ve just finished reading a remarkable article published in the New York Times last Wednesday February 27th that reviewed the details of an astounding study. This study – for the first time ever – conclusively pinpointed the #1 cause of type 2 diabetes and by extension, excess, stubborn weight. They did, however, miss one incredibly important detail, which I’ll explain in a moment but here’s what they did get right. The study showed that the link between this #1 cause of type 2 diabetes and by extension, extra, stubborn flab, was just as strong as the link between cigarettes and lung cancer.
