Is emotional eating a challenge for you?

emotional eatingI just read an article on my Shaklee 180 site that rings so true for me. I was talking with a good friend last night, she is thin, in great shape but has the same issue, emotional eating.

Do you think before you eat? Are you emotions dictating what and how much you eat?

Below are some good tips to be a conscious, healthy eater.

         Successful weight loss story followed on TV

Jacqui McCoy’s success on ABC’s Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition is a history-making story of amazing transformation.  In just a year, guided by extreme transformation specialist Chris Powell, Jacqui lost 207 pounds – 58% of her total body weight – the highest percentage lost in television history.

Jacqui has been supported throughout her journey by her family, including her husband, firefighter Shawn McCoy and her mom and dad, Wanda and Jon Hart.

Jacqui’s diet and fitness regime were prescribed by her coaches on Extreme Makeover.  Jacqui is also a passionate advocate for Shaklee products and her nutritional needs were supported by her use of Shaklee nutrition, including Shaklee Vitalizer™ and OmegaGuard®.

Where is Jacqui now?

A year and a half after her amazing weight loss, Jacqui remains at 155 pounds and Vitalizer™ and Cinch® are part of her new daily routine.  Jacqui loves and uses Cinch Shakes, Cinch Meal-in-a-Bars, Cinch Snack Bars, and lots of other Shaklee products.

And these days, she’s sharing what she knows – including the importance of a solid nutrition foundation with Shaklee Vitalizer – with next season’s contestants. Extreme Makeover asked Jacqui to be a consultant on the show’s third season, and Shaklee was asked to ship enough Vitalizer for the contestants Jacqui is now coaching!

Wheat, weight gain & inflammation

Bloating, inflammation, aches, pains and an unpredictable gut, that was me years ago. I was truly indulging in foods that were slowly killing me and keeping unwanted pounds on.

This past weekend I visited dear friends and colleagues on their 70 acre horse farm in Virginia. Our host decided to cook all gluten-free so I could enjoy her cooking as well as the other guests. What a learning experience that was for her. She was shocked at how good the food was, all the recipes were delicious, easy and full of protein.  Everyone loved the meals she cooked.

Wheat is not the healthy grain our ancestors enjoyed.  In  William Davis, MD’s book Wheat Belly he states,that wheat has been genetically altered to provide processed-food manufacturers the greatest yield at the lowest cost. That means the wheat is nutritionally bankrupt and will cause blood sugar to spike more rapidly than eating pure table sugar and has addictive properties that cause us to ride a roller coaster of hunger, overeating and fatigue.

I love having protein, vegetables and or fruit with each meal. I am full for  4 hours (which is amazing since I have low blood sugar) My protein is either an organic source of meat or Shaklee CINCH protein meal replacement.

I am calling out to you. The person who craves breads and sugar products. Whose blood sugar rises and falls fast. Take one month and use our CINCH plan or organic meats, products to hold off the cravings in a healthy way, record your results and share them with us.  The two sites below have been helpful to others who have chosen to lose weight safely and get rid of the inflammation in their bodies.

CBS links sugar to cancer, heart disease and obesity

Dying for something sweet?

What if that delicious bite of a cup cake or that awesome taste of your favorite ice cream was slowly killing you?

Did you know that toxins whether environmental or internal, can be roadblocks to your wellbeing? Unwanted toxins can affect your energy, mental clarity, heart, breathing, mood, reaching your ideal weight and even your bottom line financially.

CBS did a news story on the affects sugar (in a variety of forms) has on cancer cells, heart disease, obesity and quality of life.  I have been blessed when I do eat sugar my body gives me a signal immediately – clear and present danger – I get tired, cranky, ache, my head feels stuffy and I have toruble concentrating.

In the article “Three hidden ways wheat makes you fat” Mark Hyman writes “Two slices of whole wheat bread now raises you blood sugar more than two tablespoons of table sugar.”

Chooose your foods wisely. This food pyramid is without the foods that turn to harmful sugars in our bodies.

Choose your food supplements, cleaners, skin care & personal care products wisely as well.
