What constitutes a
successful weight loss program?
successful approach to weight loss resolves health issues,
improves energy, digestion and elimination, provides restful,
uninterrupted sleep, and harmonizes negative emotions. A
healthy weight loss program uses real food and not chemical,
preservative, hormone and drug laden, highly processed foods.
These are not really food and your body doesn’t want them. Your
discomfort is one way you body is trying to communicate this to
food and eating is imperative to your success. Food is not the
enemy. A Program that emphasizes the joy of eating will bring
you to your goals more quickly.
plan for you
leaves you extremely satisfied and without cravings.
Most importantly, a successful weight loss program teaches you
to listen to and interpret the messages behind the excess
weight, the stressors, negative emotions, and other important
signs you’ve been receiving for many years that are telling you
something needs to change.
There is no one way
of eating that is appropriate for everyone. This Holistic
approach helps make sense of contradictory diet theories and
myths and addresses the main causes of weight issues.
You’ll learn how dieting causes weight gain, how to
determine the best path for your personal condition and
uniqueness, and discover the most important and overlooked
tools for losing weight.
many resources that are easily accessible to you that can help
you resolve not only the weight problem, but also the issues
that are behind the excess weight. Wouldn’t you like to learn
to use them?
are four of the many approaches that
don’t work – yet people always try:
Which of these are you
trying right now?
1. Following the popular
diet trend of the day
- If you haven’t gotten the result you want, it may be because
you’re trying to follow a plan designed by someone who does not
understand your overall condition, other health factors,
personality, age, activity level, stress level, emotional state,
environment and lifestyle. There is no one way of eating that
works to bring everyone good health and balanced weight. My
Holistic Weight Loss Program designs a flexible eating
plan for your constitution, condition, lifestyle, emotional
state, and other factors unique to you. Forcing
yourself to adhere to a rigid eating plan does not resolve the
deeper causes. Nor does it bring long term weight loss, good
health or happiness.
2. Weighing, measuring food,
counting calories and fat grams. There
are hundreds of thousands of people out there who have been
doing this for many years, and their weight keeps climbing.
I’ve had quite a few of them as clients. Food is
far more than the sum of its nutrients, and has specific
therapeutic properties. Some foods dry up dampness, a condition
that manifests as bloating and puffiness causing weight gain.
Other foods are warming and can gently stimulate metabolism back
to normal. Other foods are cooling and can balance overheated
conditions in the body that cause excess weight to stagnate in
the body. Reversing weight and health issues with nutritional
therapy is not haphazard. Understanding your personal
imbalances and how to use food to reverse them will result in
easy weight loss.
3. Rejecting yourself
until you lose weight to accept, appreciate and love who you
are. It’s not possible to have a slender, healthy body from the
place of feeling badly about it. Your body responds to your
thoughts about it and is molding and shaping itself in response
to what’s in your mind and your emotions.
talk to yourself, what do you say? Pay attention to what you
think and say about your body or any other aspect of yourself.
How often do you hear yourself criticizing or putting yourself
down? Negative judgment of self (and others) is a huge obstacle
to success. Critical, negative, and self-doubting thoughts have
power over your efforts to lose weight.
thinking thoughts such as, I can't do it, I'm not capable, I'm
unattractive, fat, ugly, I'm a failure, I don't have what it
takes....... These and other negative judgments are a way of
rejecting yourself. You're telling your subconscious that you
will only be loving and accepting of yourself under certain
Do you treat yourself in cruel and brutal ways mentally? Do you
berate yourself for not living up to your own expectations? How
does all of this make you feel emotionally? I'd guess it all
makes you feel even worse about yourself. And when you're
feeling badly you'll make more poor choices that keep the weight
Struggle ends when self-love, self-acceptance and self-respect
are present. These are qualities of the heart and soul and are
kind and gentle.
you make the worst of something it will never improve. When you
criticize and complain about your body you’re improving your
weight gain. When you find
ways to be happy with where you are, things begin to change
for the better. This couldn’t be truer for your weight
4. Waging War -
noticed the language used when referring to weight
imbalances—“fight the fat”, “win the war on obesity”, “battle of
the bulge”, “I’m watching my weight”. Weight problems begin in
our minds. That’s right. Whatever shape your body is in is a
result of the thoughts, attitudes, and feelings you have about
yourself and the food you consume. Fighting and battling wars,
whether internally or externally, always creates stagnation,
discomfort, and more difficulties to fight against. And those
difficulties end up on your body. Many believe the way to
lose weight is to declare war on their bodies and fight the fat.
This creates a resistance to what you really want—a slender,
healthy and attractive body. Giving negative focus to any
unwanted bodily condition (including excess fat) intensifies its
hold on us.
are thinking mechanisms that communicate with each other and
respond to your thoughts. Your attitudes penetrate your cells, and
your body responds to your mind at a cellular level. You become
what is most like your thoughts. So, if you're calling yourself
fat and waging a war on your body, your body will respond by
being fat and giving you more to fight against.
Three Things You Can Start Doing

Achieve the Kind of Body You Desire
AWARENESS. Learn to recognize what your body really
wants and when it’s satisfied (not stuffed). When you’re 75%
finished with the food on the plate, ask yourself if you’re
satisfied. If the answer is yes, save the leftovers for another
meal. This may take some practice. Many people have reported
that they do not know when they are satisfied. It’s better to
eat 4 or 5 small meals than to overeat at 2 or 3 meals. You
will have more energy and mental clarity by eating to the
satisfaction point rather to the point of fullness. Make a list
of non-food things that SATISFY you. Make some of them
simple things that you can do regularly. Far too often we’re
trying to fulfill unmet needs with food and it just doesn’t work
to bring happiness or good health.

factory. This means fruits, vegetables, whole grains and
proteins that are easy to digest. Get rid of preservatives and
chemicals; hormones, steroid and antibiotic laden foods;

many health conditions will disappear. Increasing vegetables to

lost ten pounds and have more energy...." L.J.
"I have randomly purchased many
weight loss products with no results. You were so kind to
speak with me by phone when I emailed a question to you about
some of the products on your website. And I am so glad you
did. You asked the rights questions and the products you
recommended are working after only a few days. Thanks so
much." J.E. Los Angeles
