This Week’s Article/Video – Hypnotherapy & Weight Loss

I have joined a local BNI Networking group which consists of local people who have their own businesses. We all meet once per week and by networking and understanding each other’s businesses we can help refer people to each other.

I meet Tanya Caffrey a Hypnotherapist on one of these meetings. Now I am really interested in Alternative Therapies in trying to sort out my client’s mindset so that they can achieve the health and the body that they have always wanted.

Often we have barriers that prevent us from getting to our goals and we need help to accept things or change things so that we can move on and get to where we want to be.

I myself have tried Reiki, massage, mediatation and counselling. And now I am going to be working with Tanya to sort out some issues from my childhood that are affecting how I feel at the moment :O).

I will be blogging about this over the weeks to come but in the meantime I have interviewed Tanya to find out what Hypnotherapy is all about and how it can help you with your weight/body image.

Please let me now what you think :O)

CT’s Important Information – by Sam Feltham & Chris Tuck

5 steps to a ‘Post Summer Holiday’ body
Well Summer Holidays are over…..I have a lovely tan, I feel rested and even though I did not go mad on bad things….I still had ice cream, cake and some soft drinks from time to time! I now feel like my belly is sitting on my knees and my inside thighs are slapping together as I walk!!

It’s time for me and probably many of you to re-focus and get back the body you want. It is time to cut the C.R.A.P & get back on track :o)

You will be pleased to hear that it’s never too late to start changing your eating and exercising habits and that just a few changes for a couple of weeks will make all the difference to getting back into your clothes, to deflate the tummy and tone up those thighs.

Below are the steps that I will be taking to get my pre-holiday body back :O)
1.Have Lean Protein at least twice per day

Sources of protein include meat, fish, eggs, pulses and nuts.

I usually have prawns, salmon, chicken, egg or avocado.


The Science about protein
Protein is probably the most important macro nutrient in a healthy diet and it is essential for growth, tissue repair, immune function and preserving lean muscle mass.

Protein will help your muscle tissues repair after a workout and will therefore help increase your lean muscle mass which will in turn increase your metabolism and the speed at which you burn calories.

When you eat a higher protein diet you generally stay fuller for longer and are less likely to binge on unhealthy snacks! You will therefore lose weight as a result! I will eat the above for breakfast :O)

 

2. Decrease Carbohydrate

Carbohydrates are found in starchy foods like bread, pasta and rice. They are also found in fruit and vegetables and in sugary foods like cake and chocolate. I will cut out the chocolate, bread, pasta and rice from by eating plan, reduce my fruit to two portions per day and stick to eating berries and massively increase my vegetable intake.

It was really weird for me to not have bread with my soup, and eat a meal without potatoes or rice in the beginning but now I am happy with a plate as depicted above because i know that I am putting  nutritious food into my body.

The Science about Carbohydrates

All carbohydrates are converted to glucose, a type of sugar, before they are absorbed into the bloodstream. Then they are either burned for energy or stored as fat.

Although we do need a certain amount of carbohydrate in our diet to use as energy many people consume too much carbohydrate and this excess is stored as fat.

Carbohydrates can be split into High GI and Low GI foods.

High GI foods such as white bread and pasta are digested quickly and give you a spike in energy levels. These energy levels quickly drop leaving you feeling hungry and craving sugary foods.

Low GI foods such as non starchy vegetables, fresh fruit, pulses and whole grains are digested slowly and leave you feeling fuller for longer. They keep your blood sugar levels low and steady and reduce the urge to snack in between meals.

I would recommend decreasing the amount of Carbohydrates you eat and making sure that the Carbohydrates that you do eat come from Low GI foods such as non-starchy veg, fresh fruit, beans and pulses.

 

3.Eat fat to lose fat

Your body needs fat to protect your organs and it’s also used in brain function, nerve transmission and hormonal productions. If you cut out fat from your diet completely your body will hold onto the fat it already has and you will therefore struggle to lose body fat!

I will be eating and cooking with coconut oil to make sure I am giving my body what it needs :O)

The Science about Fat
By holding onto fat you will initially lose weight by losing lean muscle mass which in turn will slow down your metabolism (the rate at which you burn calories)

This is one of the many reasons that FAT FREE DIETS DO NOT WORK! Many people will end up gaining more weight once they come off the diet having lost lean muscle mass rather than body fat and in turn having slowed their metabolism.

I would recommend eating unsaturated fats found in fish, nuts and avocados; they are delicious and are essential for a healthy, balanced diet!

Stay away from too many saturated fats found in red meats, and stay away from Trans fats found in ready meals, biscuits, crisps and other processed foods altogether!

 

4.Increase the number of veg and fruit you eat as well as the amount of water that you take on

Fresh fruit and vegetables are full of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The more vegetables you can include in your diet the better. There is a big campaign for your five a day.

I would recommend having fruit for breakfast, either in a home made smoothie or having fruit with some full fat natural yoghurt. Berries are excellent antioxidants and are abundant at this time of year!

Make sure that your plate for lunch and dinner is half full with different types/colours of vegetables.  Be inventive you can steam, boil and stir fry to keep it exciting and make sure to add as many herbs and spices to your veg to ensure that you don’t lose interest!

Water is so important for health in general and in particular when trying to lose weight.

Drink water (preferably filtered) throughout the day, especially when working out.

Try to limit the amount of caffeine you drink to one cup or less a day. Caffeine is dehydrating and dehydration will impair your ability to workout effectively.

If you like tea then try drinking green tea instead as this is full of antioxidants!

Take fizzy drinks out of your diet, they are full of chemicals, sugar, sweeteners and ingredients that we can’t even pronounce!

 

5.Exercise

The best way to lose weight and live a happier and healthier lifestyle is to combine both good nutrition and exercise. Although you will see some small results with just one of the above the key to maintaining a happy and healthy lifestyle is to combine the two.

So, what sort of exercise should you be doing?

The answer here depends on how active you already are. I would recommend trying to exercise for at least 30 mins, 3 times a week or more if possible.

If you can try and walk or cycle to work instead of driving and take the stairs every time where possible.

If you are a member of a gym then try doing strength training or if you run try substituting a long run for interval training (sprint for 20 sec, run for 20 sec – repeat 8 times) as both these types of training will increase your lean muscle mass and in return increase your metabolism (the rate at which you burn calories).
