The Rules Of Weight Loss Have Changed

The misguided rules of the low fat diet are gone and won’t be missed.  The new rules embrace healthy delicious fats.  Healthy fats are not only delicious they have amazing health benefits including reducing inflammation, balancing blood sugar and weight loss.  Inflammation is linked to a host of chronic disease you want to avoid like arthritis, diabetes, ADHD, depression, eczema and more.

So what are these “healthy” fats?  Think nuts and seeds like sesame, coconut, macadamia, chia, flax, pistachios, pecans, walnuts, full fat organic dairy and clean protein (grass-fed beef or bison, poultry).

Now don’t get overwhelmed you can fit these into your current eating plan with little effort with one cardinal rule – DON’T eat fat with sugar!   The body is designed to use the fastest source of energy which will be sugar and store excess calories as fat.  The exciting benefit is you can eat fat without the sugar and burn off the fat.  The more healthy fats you eat, the faster you will lose weight, repair your stress, hunger and sex hormones, and produce soft wrinkle-free skin!

  • So here are some ways to start eating healthy fats every day;
  • Use organic pastured butter on your vegetables
  • Add 2 teaspoons of coconut oil to your smoothies
  • Use avocado instead of mayonnaise on your sandwich
  • Toss pine nuts into your recipes or grind them for bread crumbs
  • Snack on nut butter like pumpkin, sesame, cashew, and almond
  • Experiment with hemp or flax oil on salads

Just remember all fats can turn rancid so handle them with TLC, refrigerate and store in a dark container.   Also banish all fake fats!  They inhibit metabolism, reduce thyroid function, and promote inflammation.  These types are fats are hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated, like margarine, shortening, soybean, cottonseed, canola, vegetable oils and cooking sprays.

So leave your fear of fat behind and enjoy a slimmer, healthier you!

Balance Your Hormones with nature

clary sageI have been very focused on helping women with hormone imbalances lately.  So I thought I would pass along a few tips for you ladies in the perimenopausal years late 30’s to 50’s.  Symptoms come from a variety of imbalances but here are just a few essential oils that really support balance, moods and sleep.

The first work horse is clary sage. Clary Sage is known for its calming properties and benefits to the skin. The main chemical component of Clary Sage is linalyl acetate, part of the esters group, making it one of the most relaxing, soothing, and balancing essential oils. In the Middle Ages, the Clary Sage plant was frequently used to soothe skin. Inhaling Clary Sage promotes feelings of relaxation, allowing for a restful night’s sleep.

Thyme oils is another favorite to improve the body due to it purifying and cleansing properties.  When the organs and systems are cleansed and functioning efficiently the hormones they produce are in better balance and improving hormone usage.

Another essential oil to grab is basil. You may only think its for pesto but look at all the benefits:• Soothes sore muscles and joints • Assists with clear breathing • Acts as a cooling agent for the skin • Promotes mental alertness • Lessens anxious feelings • Enhances memory function • Reduces stress and tension • Reduces tension when applied to temples and back of neck • Soothes minor irritations • Sharpens focus while studying or reading • Soothes minor skin irritations

The Hidden Causes of Sleepless Nights

Relieve Anxiety with Essential oils

Isn’t it funny how many memories are triggered by a smell.  That is no accident we are hard wired to do just that. There is literally a gland in the brain called the amygdala (for those that care) that can only be stimulated by our sense of smell.

That same gland plays a major role in storing emotions.  So as you can see stress can be highly influenced by the powerful complex smells  essential oils.

So let me break this down for you-

Mints and Florals are best for – worry, anxiety, hurt, apathetic or fearful feelings.  Like lavender, clary sage, spearmint, peppermint, ylang ylang, chamomile

Citrus and Spices are best for – gloomy, discouraged, bored, or discouraged feeling. Like wild orange, coriander, cassia, cinnamon, vanilla, cardamom

Grasses, herbs and trees are best for – sadness, grieving, angry or disconnected feelings. Like bergamot, juniper, myrrh, frankincense, thyme, cypress

You can buy these in individually or in blends but next time your emotions need some support reach for essential oils for fast relief.
