If You’re Female, You’re Destined To Be Fat – Unless You Outsmart Your Genes

females-are-destined-to-be-fat

I just read a study that shows woman have less ability to turn away from tempting foods than what men do. Sorry girls, but according to latest research funded by the (what the?!) US National Drug Institute, we just don’t have much hope. Resistance is futile, so get eating.

The study involved brain scans on 13 women and 10 men who had fasted overnight. The idea was to determine how participants brains responded to the sight of their favorite foods. In the name of good research the men and women were cruelly presented with their favorite unhealthy foods after being taught cognitive inhibition techniques to suppress appetite and thoughts of hunger.

While men were able to just say no, the brain scans for female participants showed a strong message urging them to eat. But fear not ladies! We do have an excuse. Actually, several. Here’s what some experts had to say –

5 Reasons Females Are Destined To Be Fatter Than Males

(And How You Can Outsmart Those Nasty Girl Genes)

1. Because the traditional role of the female is to provide nutrition to children, the female brain may be hard-wired to eat when foods are available” (Nora Valkow, a co-author on the paper and director of the National Institute for Drug Abuse)

True true. Us woman have to be physically able to fuel both a fetus and ourselves should the occasion arise. But why should this or any other excuse – legitimate or otherwise – act as a reason to justify chowing down when we don’t need to? In my experience one of the major reasons women give in to temptation more readily than men is that us gals tend to naturally avoid protein and fat-rich foods more so than men do. And without (healthy) proteins and fats as an element of every meal we eat, we sure won’t be getting any satisfaction. If you think you may be guilty of a (healthy or not) carb-heavy diet, and find you can’t resist carb cravings, check out this article on escaping your cravings.

2. “Behavioral studies have shown that women have a higher tendency than men to overeat when presented with tasty food or under emotional distress” (Gene-Jack Wang of Brookhaven National Laboratory, co-author and researcher on the study)

Can’t argue. But maybe that could be because your hormonal system (which helps you manage stress and handle emotional upset) relies on you eating enough good proteins and fats at every meal to enable optimal hormone production and function. Not to mention muscle recovery and a healthy metabolism!

3. The findings may be the result of differences in sex hormones between men and woman. (Also Gene-Jack Wang)

Men have naturally higher levels of testosterone than woman. This means that their resting metabolic rate is higher, and – as a result – they will lose weight more rapidly, and put it on more slowly than what females will do. The good news is that you CAN outsmart your genes on this on (and without having to turn into iron-woman). Check out these 10 Sure-fire Ways To Blast Off Body Fat and you’ll learn a few tricks that I’ve been using for years.

4. “While food choices were seasonal and more limited for our ancestors, choices today are wider and the food is so tempting” (Mr Wang again)

The safest way to avoid temptation is to do, well, just that. Don’t go into the aisles of the supermarket, just stick around the edges. Better yet, avoid commercial grocery outlets altogether and shop at the market. At least any indulgences there tend to be of the whole-food kind. Want to know just how effective seasonal eating can be? Check out this piece on what your ‘real’ eating habits should look like.

5. “The differences in hunger suppression may contribute to gender differences in eating disorders” (Eric Stice, an expert on eating disorders at the Oregon Research Institute)

Uh, yeah. Again, it’s true. Women beat up on themselves more than men, particularly as regards their physical appearance. And, bizarre as it is, one of the ways we try to overcome that is by binging out on junk foods. Small wonder this can develop into a vicious cycle that leads some women into a full-blown eating disorder. I guess the key here is not to get so caught up in these sort of amazing new research pieces that we allow it to color our actions. To read about a study such as this one and use it as an excuse for continued bad behaviors is what many women will do. Telling themselves that it’s not their fault, it’s just in their genes, or it’s their destiny.

So why don’t you make a choice. Right now. Why not use reading about this hot new research as your motivation to make positive change. It might be as simple as avoiding the 7-11 on your lunch break, or it could be as serious as acknowledging you need the support of a friend or even a professional, but whatever it is you do, make it a true choice. A decision and an action that you decide to make reality. Because like it or not, by choosing to do nothing or to give in, you are in fact choosing to live your life a certain way; to allow your body to develop a certain way. (And that’s not just for the girls).

Life is Now. Press Play.

Day 3) Self-Belief

Day 4) Empire Creation

Day 5) Your Deepest Message

Day 6) Following Soul Guidance in All Areas

Day 7) Faith vs Fear

Day 8) Accessing Flow, and Superflow

Day 9) Expanding Time

Day 10) Expanding Money

Every day will be a LIVE soul led transmission.

This will take place on Facebook video, held at a variety of times in order to account for varying time zones, and scheduled only once we have begun. Our daily soul transmissions will be guided from MY higher self and directed from and for YOURS, to help you find and FOLLOW the messages within. The messages of your spirit, your consciousness, of the who you’ve always been and yet have managed quite well to cover up a lot of the time.

This is about stripping away –

And getting back to the CORE.

We’ll dive day by day into the above mentioned areas –

And you’ll receive all content and bonuses to keep for life.

There will be daily spirit prompts which you’ll receive after each training.

And plenty of time opportunity connect with me throughout, receive transmissions direct to YOUR questions, and absorb more even than what comes through on the trainings, via the energy we’ll create in this collective!

It’s very rare for me to know in advance exactly what is coming through day to day.

I certainly don’t have the details of each day’s content. But I know that these areas have been on my heart to talk about, in particular around belief, around certainty, around living from FAITH.

We know that exactly what is meant to come through for you WILL, and then some. And that if you intend and allow for it to, it will change, most likely before we even begin, due to your energetic commitment, the direction of your LIFE!

Meaning: direct it back to absolute soul alignment.

*** NEVER Seen Before Bonus! ***

As part of this, I’ve been guided to offer a NEVER before seen bonus … one I feel super vulnerable about sharing!

It’s the exact journaling I did to allow the download of THIS offer through. How I allowed the idea to bubble up. You’ll see my doubt, uncertainty, annoyance. You’ll see what I discarded. How I went through the layers. And how I KNEW, this was the one.

I’ll ALSO add in copies (screenshots) of my conversation with my COO Ash, where I was talking through the idea and allowing it to come to life.

I want to show you the exact Idea to Launch process!

This bonus alone is EASILY worth the cost of this program, particularly when you hear the mindset side of it, in terms of STAYING THE COURSE and refusing to back away from my self until the idea showed up!

I refuse not to create!!

AND, when you register for EXPANSION today (and how could you not?!) you’ll also receive early access to the Pre-Work. This is ALSO never seen before, and brand new just for you – and it’s a guided meditation on remembrance, to help you connect back to deepest self and the most certain truth of your destiny, before we even begin.

Perfect priming, for when we expand RAPIDLY into all that is coming through in this work!

Of course I could now go on and on here, about what I could or should have charged for this, and what it’s actually going to be …

Or about all my accomplishments on line and off, with money, with purpose, with passion, with flow …

I think you know all this anyway. Even if you just me! Your soul feels what matters. And that’s ALL that matters.

But I will say this:

You’ve always known it’s supposed to be about ALL that is inside of you. That it’s meant to COME from a place of purpose, passion, and SUPER super flow. And that if you just.freaking.trusted, and showed up FULLY from that place, you’d be living in a different reality already.

THE ONE INSIDE OF YOU.

If that’s true for you right now, then LET’S GO CREATE THAT REALITY.

Right now
