Healthy Portion Sizes Part 2: The Sneaky Extras

foods-that-make-you-fat

If you haven’t read my earlier post, Healthy Portion Sizes: A Failproof Guide, then be sure to check it out. I’ve given you the full rundown on how much you need to eat at each meal when it comes to protein, fats and carbohydrates. But as I was wrapping up the article I realized something crucial –

That’s not enough. Is it?

After all – it’s more often the sneaky in-between meal snacks that cause your belly to slowly creep out well beyond its designated boundaries. In my experience someone can eat right at all their meals and still lose the battle of the bulge if they don’t pay close attention to the rest of the day.

I’ve found these sneaky extras fit into 3 main categories. And if you’re serious about eating the right amount for your body and your weight then you need to make sure you have this stuff under control.

1. Juices, soft drinks or cordials. We all know soft drinks and sugary cordials are bad for us, but did you know the same rule applies for diet soft-drinks, diet cordials, and ALL juices? Juices are one of the biggest baddies when it comes to over-eating. You tell me – is it natural to eat 9 oranges at once? ‘Cause that’s how many it takes to squeeze a tall glass of OJ. Talk about a sugar overload! As for diet beverages, it’s now old news that artificial sweeteners are so effective they actually trick your body into releasing insulin and storing fat, just the same as if you drank the sugary stuff. If you’re trying to lose weight even one glass of these types of drinks per day is too much.

2. Chocolates and sweets. Simple rule – they’re not good for you. They’re nothing but a high-sugar, low-nutrition highway to blubber. And to add insult to injury, indulging in these sort of snacks actually triggers more cravings later in the day, usually leading to a rollercoaster of bad eating. The only exception – organic, 70% plus dark chocolate. Yum! Check out these few other guilt-free sweet treats that are actually good for you.

3. Sneakily stolen snacks. These are the sneakiest of all foods that make you fat. They’re the little stolen moments of pleasure that you conveniently forget to count. That somehow don’t make it into your food diary even if you tell yourself you’re being completely honest. It’s the 5 mints throughout the afternoon, the few bites of your kids’ dinner. The sugar or two in your coffee. The shared bite of a colleagues’ brownie. The ‘mini’ chocolate bar from the office supply. The candy you bought for charity (yes, even good deed candy purchases can make you fat). The extra spoon of creamy mashed potatoes. The cheat meal that extends into a cheat evening day weekend. I mean, c’mon –

Take just a moment and think about how you’d feel if you were forced to face a table-load of the past years’ sneakily stolen snacks. Would the table still be standing?!

I know you hear me.

The good news is that you have the power to turn things around anytime you choose. Today, in fact right now, can be the moment you decide that it’s time to get real. To truly give yourself a shot and see just how far you can take this weight loss or health gig if you do things properly. It’s not about never indulging, don’t get me wrong. But I will say this – if it’s a barely conscious indulgence, then what’s the point? You eat it so fast you barely register it with most of these things.

Why not set yourself a goal of reaching the end of today with pride in the way you’ve treated your body? And then do it again tomorrow. And the next day. Trust me, it does get easier. And there’s no rule that says real nutrition doesn’t taste great. Plus – even if you’re being super strict you should still let your hair down for a cheat meal (yes, meal) once a week.

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

✨✨ Success Frequencies.

Let’s talk about them. Breathe them in. ALLOW them in. And then dial them TF in.

Are you ready?

There are certain ways of being, of operating, of thinking, and perhaps most in particular of expecting which are currently dictating your outcomes in every area of life.

You are, quite literally, coded. Programmed. Running on a frequency of … X.

With X being, well – whatever you see around you most days. Whatever you experience. Feel. Know to be true. Receive and hold onto. Receive and do not hold on to. Or do not receive at all.

There are certain things in your life which right now you can click your fingers and command to replicate, on repeat, and they do.

And there are other things which SHOULD be in your life, which you yearn to have in your life, which sometimes you get a glimpse or a taste of or even an entire mouthful, and then they’re gone, into the night, maybe never to return again, shrouded in mystery and frustration but yet at the same time that deeper part of you knows –

it’s not supposed to be like this.

It shouldn’t be.

I don’t accept it!

And I WILL move past.

You look into the future you see inside of you and you know that it is ALL real, ALL available, ALL true, ALL there for the taking. A virtual sushi train of wondrous life options, every one of ’em just a choice you can pluck off as it rolls on by! Don’t see what you want, not exactly? All you gotta do is ASK, and it’ll be freshly made for you!

Your belief around the impossible is OFF THE CHARTS.

And it always has been.

Your PROOF, of CREATING and ALLOWING the impossible is also pretty darn off the charts, if you do say so yourself. Which you don’t have to, because others do it for you!

It’s ALWAYS been this way for you, you’ve ALWAYS been able to dance between realities and choose the one you wanna keep.

But yet –

it feels, so much of the time, as though you’re teetering.

Teetering on the edge of will I / won’t I let myself FULLY go and receive, create, allow, BE –

or will I fall back into normal, into rules, into worries, into shoulds, into the dreaded dreaded fear that it’ll somehow all just stop working and I’ll find out there was never anything special about me at all, never anything wondrous about what I could do, and that I just somehow … fluked things for a bit.

Sometimes you’re CERTAIN which way you’re going to topple.

And other times you’re terrified you have no idea at all, and if you did you wouldn’t want to know.

But what you do know is this:

When things are working.

When things are flowing to and through and from you in the precise ways they should be.

When things are OH so yes.

When it’s all just coming together, the different areas of your business your money your life and YOU just rolling PERFECTLY, like a beautiful and impossible to replicate orchestra, pure MAGIC –

it’s not because of what you did.

It is not because of how you planned, followed the plan, did it right.

It’s not a list you ticked off that made it that you got to then GET.

It’s not because you followed RULES for success.

Or really anything at all.

It’s because you were playing life on a certain frequency. You were tapped in, dialled in, LEANING all the way in to something you can’t even fully describe but you KNOW when you’re in it.

You were, not to be too corny or cliche about it but we’ll say it anyway ’cause it’s true – one with life itself. Dancing the most beautiful dance of BEING FULLY YOU with the wind beneath your wings nothing other than God and truth and the very fabric of the universe, what else could it be?!

Put simply:

you had those Success Frequencies switched on to high AF, and you were using ’em.

Want to know how to do that more, in fact any time you choose, in fact with complete calm understanding of what it is you ARE doing and how to tap in and BE in that energy, that place, that receiving, at will?

It’s always been available.

It’s ALWAYS been right there for the taking.

EVERYTHING you’ve suspected this whole time is true.

And now?
We’re gonna get you understanding it (every last bit).

Living it (as naturally as breathing).

And UTILISING it to let life unwind to the places you’ve been waiting to be (the way it’s meant for you).
