What The Magazines Don’t Tell You About Fat Loss

fat-loss-tipsSo you want dramatic and lasting fat loss, huh? Lean legs, perhaps? Or perhaps it’s the belly that’s bothering you? Heck, it could even be something as supposedly innocuous as that little flap of skin/fat between your chest and your armpits, but whatever it is you’re going to have to face facts.

Fat loss?

It ain’t as simple as calories and exercise. If only.

what the magazines won’t tell you about fat loss …

In the past few weeks I’ve blogged about pretty much every detail of and ‘blocking factor’ to fat loss that the mainstream health-world talks about. But I think we both know that there’s always more to the story, isn’t there?

So. Today, I want to talk specifically about 2 of the areas I perceive as being HUGE when it comes to annoying ‘just won’t budge no matter what you do’ folds of fat.

The first is pretty ‘facts and figures’ based, and the second is kinda, well, could be seen as hokey. It’s not though. Let me explain …

toxicity and fat loss

Dr Mark Shauss, who is an an internationally acclaimed lecturer on the effects of environmental toxicity on human health and author of the book Achieving Victory Over A Toxic World, teaches that toxicity is a key reason for an inability to lose body fat. In addition, the accumulation of toxins may present a host of ever-increasing modern day health complaints.

According to Dr Mark, who has spent the past 27 years of his life researching toxins and their effect on the body, toxicity

“occurs when something from the outside gets into our system that our bodies view as being foreign and causes negative effects. A toxin can take many different forms. Stress can be a toxin because we know it can change body chemistry. But for each person it’s different; for instance, caffeine can be extremely toxic for some people because their bodies don’t know how to metabolize it.”

If you consider that fat loss is directly related to detoxification, it makes sense that increased levels of toxicity will make it tough for you to lose body fat.
Some of the key things you can look at to lower your toxic load are:

  • Household and office cleaning products (go organic)
  • Haircare products (nasty chemicals)
  • Skincare products (organic products are often cheaper anyway, and so beautiful!)
  • Makeup (switch to mineral)
  • Plastics (use Pyrex or glass for leftover food, and use BPA free water bottles)
  • Pesticides, herbicides and fungicides on your food (go organic)

The absorption of external toxins such as these ones can not only have an accumulative effect on your health and your ‘general’ ability to lose body fat, but – as taught in Biosignature – these toxins can directly impact lower body fat through the increase of synthetic estrogen.

So if you want lean legs or flat abs then you need to lower your toxic load!

the mindset of fat loss

This is the kinda hokey one … or at least I used to think so. Hopefully I can convince you too that you actually can control how your body looks, functions and feels through your thoughts. At least to an extent.

Hey – you gotta at least consider the idea, right?

When you have a mindset of lean you’ll find that following the rules of health and fat loss is pretty much automated. Emotional upsets and stress don’t often derail you; you don’t really relate stress management to how you eat or whether you workout.

You enjoy food and when you have a ‘treat’ it’s done happily in the knowledge that your body will be able to handle it. Your treats are based around special social occasions, or perhaps even based on honing the ability to just ‘know’ when your body is ready for a carb or sugar boost after days of eating clean. As such, your metabolism sucks up the excess calories and they have little impact.

More importantly, you don’t beat yourself up over every food choice (even the ones you haven’t yet made), and when you do ‘indulge’ there is no analysis, no frantic attempt to make up for it the next day, and you honestly don’t think for a second that it’s going to make you bloat or put on weight.

In fact, you’re the type of person who even goes on holidays and eats whatever they want all week without stressing your head off that it’s going to undo all of your hard work. The word guilt as related to food really doesn’t mean anything to you.

If you’re used to worrying about everything you do or do not do for fat loss, I’m guessing that this scenario sounds quite appealing to you, doesn’t it?

creating your mindset of lean

So. Let’s get down to business. How do you create this mindset of lean?

Is it possible to just become positive-minded and confident if you’re used to expecting things to be tough or wondering if you just don’t have what it takes?

I believe that it is, but I think this depends on you putting some effort in. Your mind sometimes needs as much if not more training as your body!

I believe that letting go of guilt, fear and self-criticism is something that every woman can do if they really want to.

I also believe that doing so, and perhaps even going to far as to release resentment you may be holding and to decide to forgive people who have wronged you, is paramount if you truly want to be healthy.

And yes, perhaps even if you truly want to be lean.

Louise Hay, for example, author of You Can Heal Your Life and perhaps one of the greatest health, weight loss and self-help specialists of our time, talks about the body putting on extra weight as a protective mechanism against criticism from ourselves. The negative emotions and things that you carry around tend to reflect back to experiences that shaped you as a child, but that doesn’t mean they are still true today.

There is nothing you ‘have to’ or ‘should’ be doing, there is only what you could be doing.

Let me ask you this – when you think about losing weight, getting in shape, being healthy – are your thoughts positive? Do you feel proud of the good things you’re doing, excited about the journey as well as the outcome, confident that your body has what it takes to be healthy and fit?

Or do you feel guilty about food choices you do or do not make?

Resentful that you can’t just relax or ‘be like everyone else’?

Scared that no matter what you do you’re never going to get anywhere?

Critical of every move you make, constantly telling yourself you’re not good enough?

You’ve probably heard the idea that ‘you wouldn’t speak to a child or somebody else the way you speak to yourself’, so why don’t you stop for a moment and think about what that means?

When was the last time you congratulated yourself? Said ‘I love you’ to yourself? Told yourself ‘well done’, or ‘you’ll get there’ – and meant it?

It’s something to think about, isn’t it? Let me know what you DO think about it, if you have time for a comment 🙂

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.
