Isn’t It Time You Jumped Off The Carb Rollercoaster? Here’s How.

Read time: 2-3 minutes

I feel like I’m kind of starting to re-hash well trodden ground here, so let me preface this one by saying I’ll back off for a bit after this! In the past few weeks I’ve told you how to tell if you’re addicted to carbs (hint: if you are, then this one is for you), asked you if your cardio habit is fueling your carb addiction, spoken about why I think it’s a myth that your body ‘needs’ bread or other carbs, told you when to break the rules on a low-carb diet, and explained low-carb nutrition once and for all (although obviously not, given how I’m still writing about it!)

I’ve also harped on about sugar a fair bit, with this brilliant You Tube clip Sweet, my confession on sugar addiction, and finally, a how-to guide on breaking up with sugar (which was even featured on the front page of The Daily Brainstorm!).

Hmmm. Is it just me, or am I a little fixated on this topic? In my defense, breaking free of sugar and carb addiction is one of the SIMPLEST ways to improve your health and energy and burn stubborn body fat, so please bear with me one more time.

A Simple Guide To Escaping Carb Addiction

1. Start one meal at a time, and absolutely make it breakfast. The food you eat first thing in the morning dictates your energy for the day ahead, as well as food cravings, and you know that the more carbs you eat the more carbs you eat, so it makes sense to hold them off.

2. Choosing a protein and smart fat breaky such as lean meat with a handful of nuts will optimise neurotransmitter function for the day ahead (keep you happy and motivated!) and is also ideal for fat loss and health (unless you’re lucky enough to tolerate carbs, in which case you could have some fruit and protein for breaky, or a small serve of oats with protein).

3. There is NO WAY you will escape carbohydrate or sugar addiction if you fail to eat adequate good fat. Great choices include flaxseed oil, quality fish oil, and small serves of nuts, seeds, avocado, olive or coconut oil.

4. Once you’ve dealt with breaky, think about the rest of the day. My best advice for a mid-morning snack is to choose some protein (a boiled egg, a small piece of meat, half a protein shake), along with some raw green veg. You cannot overdose on green vegetables and they are a great source of nutrition and fiber, so the sooner you start eating them each day the better!

5. Lunch: don’t think that you have to cut out all carbs (unless you prefer to jump in headfirst with a low-carb bootcamp), but why not think about smart carbs? Rather than processed grains – yes, even wholegrains – choose low GI starch like brown rice, sweet potato, or a yummy stone fruit after your protein and green veg.

6. Be smart with snacks. By this I mean the obvious (choose snacks that are real food based, such as nuts or nut butter with a small piece low GI fruit, or – even better – more veg, full fat dairy if you tolerate it, some leftover protein), but I also mean be smart by being prepared. It’s all very well to know what you should or could eat, but how likely is it that you’ll nip out to the supermarket to buy a healthy snack when something more tempting is more convenient? Keep healthy snacks with you (out of sight) at all times and you’ll find it easy peasy to stick to your health goals.

7. If you really feel that you’re eating well and you still struggle with carb or sugar cravings, try this neat trick. It has worked in 100% of the cases I’ve tried! Combine 1-2 teaspoons of full-fat organic cream with a teaspoon of the immune-boosting amino acid glutamine. You can do this several times each day if necessary! Personally I’ve noticed that since using glutamine regularly each day I couldn’t care less about carbohydrate treats.

8. Sleep more! A sleep debt disrupts your circadian rhythms, which can in turn put you on an insulin-cortisol seesaw whereby you constantly crave carbohydrates. It’s a vicious circle, because a lack of sleep also inhibits growth hormone production, which is crucial to building lean muscle and burning body fat. If you feel you’re doing everything right and yet still crave sweets all the time or struggle to burn fat, this may be the missing link.

9. Take fish oil. Fish oil is one of the smartest fats around, and in my opinion it is a ‘must’ supplement for everyone. Google fish oil (actually, omega 3) and any possible illness or ailment you can think of, and there will be a benefit. Myself and my clients notice that taking fish oil really helps to knock cravings on the head and keeps us fuller for longer. I’d suggest using one of these ones.

10. Get your head in the right place. There’s no way you’re ever going to jump off the carb rollercoaster if you’re not strongly motivated to do so, and if you don’t believe you should or you can. Mindset is in some ways even more important than knowing what to do nutritionally. As Tony Robbins would say (I love Tony Robbins!) make it a must.

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.

    do you have any recomendations of brands in the UK for fish oil or omega 3?

      Hi Julie. I would just order Poliquin and get it shipped; a few of my colleagues and friends live in the UK and do this. Aside from that, I’m not familiar with UK brands. I don’t know if you have Metagenics, that’s definitely good. It is a practitioner line though. In general practitioner lines are best!
