I can’t wait to share all this with you!

another sneak peek!

I just had to show you my new twitter skin – my designed just sent it through to me. Don’t you love it?!

i thought you said female fat loss?!

Ok, I’ll get to the point. One of the things I’ve been doing to prepare for blog post ideas for my our new blog is a little off-the-cuff Facebook surveying on what you guys especially want to know when it comes to female fat loss.

Here’s a quick rundown of the key points that have come up so far, along with my initial thoughts or action points on each point. At the end of this list I’m going to ask for your feedback on what you’d like to know more of, and then turn it into a free audio and blog post series!

Q: Lately, I have been consuming coconut oil and I do feel a difference in my energy levels and I have read that it boosts immune system and fat loss! What do you think?

A: I have been using coconut oil in my diet for about 5 years now, and I LOVE it. Not just because it adds a yummy and authentic taste to Asian-inspired cooking, but because of the tremendous health and fat loss benefits. The most recent thing I’ve learned about coconut oil is that it raises good cholesterol. This is especially important for vegans and vegetarians, who may lack important cholesterol from animal proteins and fats. Coconut oil works for fat loss due to its medium-chain fatty acids.

Q: Losing fat in thighs seems to be always an issue. What can I do? (This question appeared in several forms: ‘definitely thighs… particularly the top of inner thigh?!’, and ‘Im on the thigh tangent, how to move it quicker?!’. It seems you guys want to know not just about losing fat on the thighs, but also about how to tone them up.

A: Excessive and unwanted fat on the lower body can be scientifically related back to an excess of estrogen. You may not realise it, but everything from the skincare you use to the pesticides on your food to the air you breathe can elevate synthetic estrogen in your body. This is reflected in an increase of skinfolds on the quads and hamstrings. Of course genetics, diet, and exercise also play a part. My top three tips for detoxifying estrogen and leaning out your legs are:

1) eat all organic vegetables, focusing especially on the cruciferous veg.

2) Consume some form of protein 3-4 times per day minimum. Adequate protein will help you detoxify estrogen and other toxins. Plus – if you’re eating protein you will eat less starch and sugars automatically!

3) Cut back on your cardio in order to avoid Chunky Fat Aerobics Instructor Syndrome, and consider doing some German Body Comp weight training by yourself or with a Poliquin trainer. It’s a system of manipulating hormones by alternating upper and lower body exercises with specific tempos and rest time.

Q: Cellulite reduction (that was the whole questions! But I also got ‘reducing the lumpy orange peel of the thigh – not that i have any of course :)’)

A: Cellulite is a progesterone issue. It is absolutely NOT something you have to be resigned to, although it is true that some women are more genetically prone to it than others. The long and the short of it, though, is that it’s just another form of fat. And fat can be shed. Cellulite differs from regular fat in that it has connective tissue in it; hence the lumpiness. A key cause of progesterone imbalance and cellulite is the synthetic chemicals you put on your body in the form of skincare, makeup, haircare, and bodycare. Don’t underestimate this – it is a MAJOR cause of increased fat storage. Choose organic or pure mineral based products, and increase your organic green vegetables to speed up detoxification. Coconut oil is also said to help with cellulite reduction (you can use it as a body oil, but I mean internally :)), which could be due to its ability to increase liver detoxification.

Q: If you are low on time to exercise, what sort of diet plan, and positive cardio regime, should a girl adopt?

A: Firstly, ‘positive cardio regime’ is, for the most part, an oxymoron in my opinion! If you are low on time and fat loss is a goal, focus on high-volume weight training sessions. German Body Comp is my preferred approach of training for female fat loss, and can achieve massive results in as little as 30-45 minutes 2 times a week if necessary. More is better though 🙂 4 times would be ideal. You don’t need ANY cardio if you’re training properly, but if you love it you could do a little HIIT or some kickboxing.

As for diet – keep things simple. Eating well for health and fat loss is not about being Masterchef in the kitchen. Have your fancy meals when you have the time to enjoy the preparation side of things, but on a day-to-day basis? Keep it simple and focus on food for fuel. Boil eggs, grill or bake loads of meat at once so you have leftovers, eat veggies raw or quick-steamed, carry a nut and seed mix with you for back-ups. Use organic protein shakes from time to time. Simple.

Q: How best to reshape after having a baby. I’m doing quite well, but #4 has left me with a little more body fat than any of my previous pregnancies.

A: This is a topic very close to my heart! After I gave birth I was quite literally blown away by how much tougher it was to get back in shape than what I had thought it might be. Here are my top tips for that.

1) Prevention is better than a cure. The more muscle mass you have before falling pregnant, the easier it will be to lose fat afterwards. Start lifting weights now!!

2) Okay, so if the horse has already left the stable, so to speak, strength training is still key. After giving birth (when you’re ready) aim for 3 x 30 minute full-body strength sessions per week. This can be done at home if necessary. Building lean muscle will add fuel to your metabolic fire and make things so much easier for you.

3) I used a high dosage of selenium post-birth in order to reboot my thyroid. The thyroid typically drops when pregnant.

4) Gut health is key. A lot of women never quite lose the weight because pregnancy has destroyed their gut health. Use probiotics and consider a gut protocol by speaking with a Biosignature practitioner. Glutamine would be key in a gut protocol, and repairs the lining of the intestines.

Q: How to get rid of the last 5kg’s 🙂 I also got this question in another form; ‘how to get rid of the last pesky 3% bf to drop it below 10%’

A: I get this sort of question a lot. Many of the women who come to see me are already in very good shape, and want to know how to go to great. Usually they’ve been struggling with that last little bit for years, despite doing ‘all the right things’. There is SO much I could say on this topic, and probably will if you guys want to know more, but here’s the main thing: never assume anything. There are certain rules about nutrition, exercise, and fat loss; rules that apply to most people most of the time.

For example, eating protein every 3-4 hours, lifting heavy weights, getting enough sleep, making sure your digestion is functioning. What I’ve found, however, is that the rules change a little when it comes to the last few kilos. Things become more individualised, and the key is to be open to trying something different. Sometimes all it takes is shocking your body out of its normal routine.

Always lift weights for 3 sets of 10? Try doing 6 sets of 4 (high intensity training). Always do interval sprints? Try using the rower or taking up a martial art. Always get up super early to train? Try taking 2 weeks off and getting enough sleep. Always eat exactly 2.5 hours after the last time you ate? Try letting yourself get hungry from time to time. Always avoid starchy carbs? Experiment with healthy starches post-workout.

You get the idea.

gimme more, more MORE!

MONETIZE THAT SHIT NO MATTER WHAT

{AND DO WHAT YOU WANT ALL DAY}

A One-Time Live Online Workshop with Katrina Ruth, on How to Make Money Anywhere, Anytime, With ZERO Dependance on Any One Platform, Program or Tool … Aka JUST BECAUSE THAT’S WHO YOU ARE … AND – With the Greatest of Ease

Okay. Imma gonna get straight up on your ass about what needs to be said here, because obviously SOMEBODY needs to hit the damn truth button on this shit!!

Straight up from the gate up, you do NOT make money because of Facebook.

Because of Instagram.

Because of email.

Because of ANY of this shit.

You make money because of who you are and what you decide and make NON-NEGOTIABLE, period, The End!

As you may be aware, in the last day or so Facebook and Instagram went down down down OH so far down.

After a few obligatory ‘stop the world!’ messages to my team and friends (which resulted in a serious convo with one of my soul sisters as to whether we’d now have to become porn stars instead), I got back to business.

The business of posting and selling shit on Facebook, which is admittedly a big part of what I do each day???

Nah … the business of being ME, because THAT is what I actually do each day, and also?

It’s what gets me paid.

Funnily enough, as is often the way with these things, just yesterday somebody was making smart-ass comments to me about how all the coaches would survive if there was no Facebook or Instagram.

“How would they survive?”, I asked myself.

“Well, I have no idea how THEY would survive but I sure as shit know how I would survive:

Very fucking well indeed, thank you very much, because that is who I AM”

Word to the wise:

A) I was making serious money long before I used Facebook for it.

Allow me to say it again for those in the back: YOU MAKE MONEY BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE AND THE LEVEL YOU VIBRATE AT.

Vibrate?

It’s an energy thang baby, a frequency shiz niz, it’s just who you ARE and how life works for you.

Handy hint —> the level of wealth you enjoy or moan over now is already just a direct reflection of your frequency, and expectations. It ain’t got jack shit to do with what you do, and it certainly is not a product of which tools are available to you.

It is a product of YOU.

When the socials went down today it was FASCINATING to me to observe the response that came through in the in-between-y bits when people managed to post something.

People worrying about how it would impact their business, or feeling in some way handcuffed.

This is crazy! It’s fear-mongering at its worst and it’s an absolute SHITTY mentality as far as belief systems around where results come from.

Do you know what I felt, when I realised we couldn’t use Facebook as normal for our biz stuff?

EXCITEMENT.

It took a minute to click in, but I found myself getting all wriggly and lit up with excitement.

I love a damn challenge 🙂

And since I also choose to believe that everything is happening FOR me, I also took personal responsibility for this occurrence.

Obviously FB and Insta had gone down in order to force me to finally pull my finger out and learn how to go live on YouTube.

But mainly – hell YEAH to the opportunity to get creative!

Probably taking the whole thing a little bit too far, as I worked my way through some sprints on the rower post HIIT weights session, I started to imagine what would happen if Facebook was TRULY GONE AND NO LONGER OF THIS WORLD.

I got MORE excited with each second that passed (which makes me remember how damn BORED I get as soon as I know how to easily do something aka make money all day err day on Facebook), and I also found myself AUTOMATICALLY GOING INTO ZAG MODE.

Zag?

You know, like ‘When They Zig you Zag’. A classic, if ever there was one!! Thank you Dad, for always having all the BEST books on your bookshelf for me to start reading from 10 or 11 years of age!

See, I have a belief system which works rather well for me and I guess is just part of who I am –

I believe that things ALWAYS work out perfectly for me, and are always done FOR me …

I believe I am always on path …

I believe I always make the right decision, so therefore I never have to beat myself up, I just wait for the lesson –

AND

(drumroll)

I believe that my outcomes are predicated only by my choices, and that there is nothing I EVER need in order to get or maintain or ONLY improve on an existing outcome.

It’s this mindset that causes me to wonder what TF it has to do with anything when people say things like they can’t be in shape ’cause they have kids or just had a kids … or ’cause they can’t get to the gym (for example)

And it’s also this mindset that causes me to KNOW that the money I make and the impact my soul work has in the world has NOTHING to do with what tools or platforms are available to me or working.

I programmed myself a long time ago to IMMEDIATELY swerve if something was no longer serving me or working for me. It’s this part of my mind which therefore right away started coming up with creative and imaginative solutions for how business would OF COURSE carry on (and improve!) with or without social media.

And it’s also this part of my mind which of course right away finds a way to monetize the damn thing and turn it into epic and highly helpful content for you, aka this workshop!

It’s just how I think, and who I am. I am simply unavailable for NOT moving forward, and nothing will ever ever EVER make me believe that I have to depend on anything outside of me for my results.

So why a whole damn workshop on the concept?

Well, it’s more than that, isn’t it?

It’s a mindset of believing that you always get what you want.

It’s a mindset of believing that everything always works out for you.

It’s a mindset of believing that NOTHING can stop you.

That everything is working in your favour.

And?

That you can monetize ANYTHING, any time you choose, and with no ‘requirements’ in order to do so!

I don’t have to tell you that obvs the outcomes you get directly follow and reflect your mindset and your beliefs!!

Here is what else, as well:

This is not just about making money any time, from any thing, and knowing that even with challenge or things going wrong you only THRIVE and EXPAND!!

For me this goes hand in hand with duh – I get to do all of that on my terms.

By having FUN, and being in FLOW, and with ease.

In fact, the more money the more ease!! #justhowitis

That I can literally click my fingers and money shows up for me, meanwhile I’m just over here doing ma thang.

Speaking of which –

I think it’s about time I shared exactly what I currently DO all day, yeah? And how I do it / fit it all in / honour ALL the areas, PLUS manage to spend so much time sitting on my ass doing sweet FA!

In other words … !

Let’s hang out together this weekend!!

Introducing:

What We Will Be Covering!

1) How to Monetize ANY Situation, Including But Not Limited To:

* When social media or any typically depended upon platform goes down (including examples of how I have down this several times, to the tune of tens of thousands)

* Hater situations (including examples, again multiple times, again tens of thousands of dollars)

* When you make a fool of yourself / something embarrassing happens or you screw up (also examples! also lots and lots of lovely moolah)

* When people ‘screw you over’ (ahem, we will talk about this) or desert you (also examples! more money!)

* Basically how to turn any and all life situations, moods, changes of the moon, emotional ups and downs, real life SHIT, to money!

2) Why the ‘When Shit Happens’ times are often the BEST times to make money, aka this is where I teach you what it really means to understand human psychology in terms of SALES, and the mindset of being an actual IN THE FLOW entrepreneur, who ALWAYS sees opportunity and jumps straight on it

3) When NOT to Monetize (okay that one you can have for free – never!!)

4) Understanding Where Money Really Comes From – and aligning yourself TO the frequency of wealth, such that you can literally NOT.BE.IMPACTED by anything that 99.99% of people think will cost them business

5) Money Vibration Principles Revealed (… my own personal philosophies and things that I live by / instil into my being around this, including my own daily practices)

6) Coding For Success

* How to ALWAYS have an endless stream of ideas

* AUTOMATIC continual unleashment of creativity and imagination, especially in so-called times of struggle

* Seeing past problems and accessing higher self in order to always know the answer, and how to move forward

7) Programming to Upgrade – the beliefs, energetic states and emotional patterns you require in order to be this person, have all this work for you, ALWAYS see and have the ability to act on the shit that will most pay off

The ‘Do What You Want All Day’ Bit:

* Exactly how my typical day flows and how I operate for maximum efficiency of time, energy, mental acuity, soul connectedness, etc

* Getting it all done as a busy entrepreneur (and single Mum, in my case) who also refuses to operate at anything less than EXCELLENT in terms of self-care, fitness, fun, playtime, etc

* Exactly what I do all day, broken down to the detail, to helm this becoming-8-figure-empire

* Exactly what I do NOT do all day, either it just gets ignored (hint: a LOT that most online marketers think matters!), or I let other people do it for me

* Calling in soulmate support, even long before you are ready to afford it

* Optimizing energy, focus, personal power, happiness, general flow. Aka mindset and also brain / nutrition hacks and so on

* TIME MANIFESTATION. OH YES IT IS A THING.

AND, while we’re at it, we will also be talking INSTANT MANIFESTATION. The exact process I use to bring the future into the NOW, by clearing all blocks existing between its reality in the quantum and its physical manifestation in the now!!

PLUS!

I’ll be doing this ‘Rapid-Fire’ Session at the end!!

1) What it really means to be magnetic online – hint: it’s not about having a pretty and polished website or online presence!

2) Bringing the ‘in private / behind the scenes’ version of you to the public

3) Unapologetic messaging and soul baring to call in your true #soultribe

4) Audience quality vs quality, and active elimination of those who don’t ‘HELL yes’ on your content

5) People don’t buy your products, they buy you. No – people don’t buy you, they buy your energy!! What that means and how to let it out

6) Being real about where you need to take care of YOU in order to be able to show up and shine fully

7) Keeping a laser-focus and tunnel-vision on your own path, and having the courage to pave the way that feels right for you even if it’s not been done before

8) Discernment to walk the line between being polarising and positively outrageous as opposed to just a hot mess 🙂 Scaling and magnetizing FROM the chaos of creativity and following the true artists way!

9) Knowing which ideas to work, what will sell, and how best to sell it so that the entire launch and selling experience is fun AND rewarding for both your audience and you

10) Creating hell yes offers that make them scream yes!

I know!

This workshop is off the HOOK already, and we haven’t even accounted for all the random shiz which will be coming out of me!!

  1. Another good one would be how to reshape/increase mass muscle in the butt. At one point is was great, and then it got bigger and fatter. Then the lady works out and gets back in shape, and loses body fat, but her butt now is soft, hanging and has stretchmarks across it. It is no longer tight, firm, smooth and perky. She also wants lift so it looks good when wearing a bikini. That’s a request I hear from clients often.

    1. Kat says:

      Great idea – get that booty perked up!

  2. Joanna says:

    Hi Kat

    Great post looking so forward to the new blog. Funny that you should mention the GBC training as i was reading the latest fitness first magazine and it has an 8 week GBC workout in it. Chris the trainer says he was introduced to the method by Charles Poliquin (which is what sparked my interest). I was thinking of trying it out but wondered what your thoughts are on it if you have seen it yet. Is it how the master (Charles) would teach it or is it the trainers own interpretation. Either way do you think its good and worth doing. Love your opinion. Jo

    1. Kat says:

      Hi Jo – The workout that Chris has written is an advanced form of GBC. It’s a very good workout, but is only for conditioned trainees! The only odd thing is he wrote 6-12-24, it should be 6-12-25. If you’re used to weight training and know how to lift, then by all means give it a go!

  3. Clare says:

    Your new womens blog sounds like it will be fantastic Kat, Im really looking forward to it!

  4. Kat Eden says:

    Oh – I forgot to mention a few Twitter requests!

    “How to get from pear shape to great shape …”

    and “why does it always go from my chest first?”

    Don’t forget to add your request if it’s not listed in the survey above!

  5. biru says:

    Hey kat, i’ve been an avid reader of your blog for the past year and i’m really looking forward to your new women’s blog (:
    I’m trying to get rid of the last few kilos (about 2kg) of fat but cant seem to shed it, i try to do weight training at least 3 times a week. Lately i have added some 15mins cardio as well.
    Also, as a full time student, i find it really difficult to eat clean ( i read in many articles that eating clean is the only way to get lean?) but i still try my best to eat well. Do you have any advice for me?

    1. Kat says:

      Hi Biru. Unfortunately the last couple of kilos can be the toughest … as you obviously know! Actually I have a lot of things I want to say about this, and it’s funny that you just wrote this comment because yesterday I was planning a post on exactly this topic. I’m actually going to do an audio on it as well as probably a list post. To give you an idea though, I think that at this point it becomes about the small details. I don’t believe you have to be 100% clean but I do think you need structure, so planned treat meals 1-2 times a week rather than a little bit of something you shouldn’t have each day. There are also lots of cool things you can do to manipulate hormones and blood sugar, so I’ll talk about that. Stay tuned!

  6. Cara says:

    Hi Kat,

    I’m soooo excited about your new blog. I watched your most recent audio the other night and thought it was amazing. Also keen to hear about any “events” that you’re going to hold?
    Cara

    1. Kat says:

      Thanks Cara! There are a series of “Lean Living” seminars I’m running in Melbourne from mid-March. Stay tuned!

  7. I have been suffering with extra weight around my thighs for 3 years and now I want to make a new change. The comments that you have supplied here are really helpfull. Does anybody know of any good resources where I can get even more info on weight loss and good diets.

    1. Kat says:

      just keep reading! try marksdailyapple.com as well 🙂
