Reader Food Diary Makeover

Today’s post is an insight into my email correspondence with a reader regarding her weight concerns and also a brief testimonial from a happy reader. Since the release of ‘Secrets of Lasting Weight Loss Revealed’ I’ve been inundated with thank-you’s and requests for feedback on reader’s food diaries and specific weight loss questions. So I’ve decided to make this week all about you guys – every post will be a response to an ‘ask me’ that I’ve received over the past 2 weeks.

Hi Kat. Just Purchased your book and have been reading the food section, I have found it sooo interesting. I just noticed that you didn’t really give a suggestion of what to eat throughout the day for breakfast lunch and dinner??

Thanks – Maddie

Hi Maddie. Great to hear you’re enjoying it so far! I deliberately didn’t give a meal plan because I do believe that ideal nutrition is based in large part on listening to how you respond to certain foods and tuning in to your unique metabolic needs. So I tried to focus my writing on teaching you how to do that. The food diary and accompanying instructions at the end helps with this.

The other thing is (and the reason I feel my book is so easily applicable!) – if you eat the foods I recommend and eliminate the ones I suggest then you’ll automatically be eating correctly. Having said that, I can understand if you’d like a little more guidance. Remember that eating well needs to be based on variety, not just eating the same breaky, lunch, dinner every day. But here are a few articles I’ve written that will help you –

From there, the most important thing I can tell you is to eat adequate protein. I’ve heard it said (and seen it to be true) that in 99% of cases a failure to lose weight is inadequate protein. Does that help? I’d be happy to do a diet makeover for you if you send me a sample day’s eating.

Maddie’s Sample Food Diary

Breakfast
2 poached eggs (I’m a huge fan of eggs)
1 piece of toast
half an avocado
half a tomato grilled

When I get to work

1 skinny latte
and Green tea throughout the day

Lunch
Chicken Salad: Chicken breast
, Cos Lettuce, Baby Bocconcini, Grilled Capsicum
Tomato, Lemon juice and pepper to flavour. ( I often find this a bit bland)
.

Afternoon Snack
Blueberries or Strawberries

Dinner
Brown rice with broccoli, tomato, capsicum, red onion and radish piece of whiting fillet covered in flour, spices and lemon juice

Thanks for your help Kat! x

My response

Hmmm. Your diet is pretty good actually, Maddie. But there are definitely some changes you can make that would have you dropping body fat quite rapidly.

  1. Firstly, I’d eliminate the toast at breaky and include more protein instead. Some good quality organic sausage or leftover beef would be ideal. The avocado is great, and eggs are good in theory, but are a high allergy food. If you’re unknowingly eating something you’re intolerant to then it can cause you to hold weight.
  2. From there, I’d basically just say you need more protein through the whole day. Three times a day (at main meals) is not adequate for lean muscle development and body fat reduction. Especially if you’re at all active. I’d suggest adding some protein to your snacks.
  3. Along the same lines, I wouldn’t advise you to eat berries (or any fruit) alone. This can cause a fairly rapid increase in insulin and blood sugar, which can not only put your body into fat storing mode, but also stops your body burning existing fat. It’s not great for sustained energy either.
  4. In general you’re choosing healthy foods, but it does seem as though you could include a little but more smart fat. More avocado throughout the day, or perhaps some coconut oil with your other main meals. Coconut oil is renowned for it’s metabolism-boosting properties, and is also strongly anti-inflammatory. Any sort of inflammation (even stress) can lead to weight gain.
  5. One final thing you can try is fully eliminating all starch for 2 weeks. As Charles Poliquin recently posted so eloquently on his Facebook page, grain consumption is one reason women in general are getting fatter despite good intent.

I hope that gives you some good starting points Maddie! And look forward to meeting you next week 🙂

Life is Now. Press Play.

Reader Testimonial: Secrets of Lasting Weight Loss Revealed

Hey Kat,

I just purchased your book on Friday and I wanted to tell you how FANTASTIC it was… everything made sense and the point you are trying to make is very clear.

As you know I have been losing weight and I resorted back to shakes (it has helped) but I know that it is not as good as true, clean nutrition so I will be making my way up to the supermarket tonight to get some organic meats and Veggies and I will make a soup of some sorts. I will also try some Quinoa.. When I was on your eating plan I felt good, the dark circles from my eyes were gone and I had loads
of energy. I am still feeling good but I feel I should probably be eating clean food instead of reaching for a sugary shakes just because it is convient and fast… (really isnt all that cheaper either)…

Thanks again for your wonderful book, it just makes sense 🙂

Anita

Expansion.

10 Days of Live Soul Transmissions, to Help You Find and Follow the Messages Within

Day 1) Trust

Day 2) Certainty

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
