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 🙂

And remember –

Life is Now. Press Play.

MONETIZE THAT SHIT NO MATTER WHAT

{AND DO WHAT YOU WANT ALL DAY}

A One-Time Live Online Workshop with Katrina Ruth, on How to Make Money Anywhere, Anytime, With ZERO Dependance on Any One Platform, Program or Tool … Aka JUST BECAUSE THAT’S WHO YOU ARE … AND – With the Greatest of Ease

Okay. Imma gonna get straight up on your ass about what needs to be said here, because obviously SOMEBODY needs to hit the damn truth button on this shit!!

Straight up from the gate up, you do NOT make money because of Facebook.

Because of Instagram.

Because of email.

Because of ANY of this shit.

You make money because of who you are and what you decide and make NON-NEGOTIABLE, period, The End!

As you may be aware, in the last day or so Facebook and Instagram went down down down OH so far down.

After a few obligatory ‘stop the world!’ messages to my team and friends (which resulted in a serious convo with one of my soul sisters as to whether we’d now have to become porn stars instead), I got back to business.

The business of posting and selling shit on Facebook, which is admittedly a big part of what I do each day???

Nah … the business of being ME, because THAT is what I actually do each day, and also?

It’s what gets me paid.

Funnily enough, as is often the way with these things, just yesterday somebody was making smart-ass comments to me about how all the coaches would survive if there was no Facebook or Instagram.

“How would they survive?”, I asked myself.

“Well, I have no idea how THEY would survive but I sure as shit know how I would survive:

Very fucking well indeed, thank you very much, because that is who I AM”

Word to the wise:

A) I was making serious money long before I used Facebook for it.

Allow me to say it again for those in the back: YOU MAKE MONEY BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE AND THE LEVEL YOU VIBRATE AT.

Vibrate?

It’s an energy thang baby, a frequency shiz niz, it’s just who you ARE and how life works for you.

Handy hint —> the level of wealth you enjoy or moan over now is already just a direct reflection of your frequency, and expectations. It ain’t got jack shit to do with what you do, and it certainly is not a product of which tools are available to you.

It is a product of YOU.

When the socials went down today it was FASCINATING to me to observe the response that came through in the in-between-y bits when people managed to post something.

People worrying about how it would impact their business, or feeling in some way handcuffed.

This is crazy! It’s fear-mongering at its worst and it’s an absolute SHITTY mentality as far as belief systems around where results come from.

Do you know what I felt, when I realised we couldn’t use Facebook as normal for our biz stuff?

EXCITEMENT.

It took a minute to click in, but I found myself getting all wriggly and lit up with excitement.

I love a damn challenge 🙂

And since I also choose to believe that everything is happening FOR me, I also took personal responsibility for this occurrence.

Obviously FB and Insta had gone down in order to force me to finally pull my finger out and learn how to go live on YouTube.

But mainly – hell YEAH to the opportunity to get creative!

Probably taking the whole thing a little bit too far, as I worked my way through some sprints on the rower post HIIT weights session, I started to imagine what would happen if Facebook was TRULY GONE AND NO LONGER OF THIS WORLD.

I got MORE excited with each second that passed (which makes me remember how damn BORED I get as soon as I know how to easily do something aka make money all day err day on Facebook), and I also found myself AUTOMATICALLY GOING INTO ZAG MODE.

Zag?

You know, like ‘When They Zig you Zag’. A classic, if ever there was one!! Thank you Dad, for always having all the BEST books on your bookshelf for me to start reading from 10 or 11 years of age!

See, I have a belief system which works rather well for me and I guess is just part of who I am –

I believe that things ALWAYS work out perfectly for me, and are always done FOR me …

I believe I am always on path …

I believe I always make the right decision, so therefore I never have to beat myself up, I just wait for the lesson –

AND

(drumroll)

I believe that my outcomes are predicated only by my choices, and that there is nothing I EVER need in order to get or maintain or ONLY improve on an existing outcome.

It’s this mindset that causes me to wonder what TF it has to do with anything when people say things like they can’t be in shape ’cause they have kids or just had a kids … or ’cause they can’t get to the gym (for example)

And it’s also this mindset that causes me to KNOW that the money I make and the impact my soul work has in the world has NOTHING to do with what tools or platforms are available to me or working.

I programmed myself a long time ago to IMMEDIATELY swerve if something was no longer serving me or working for me. It’s this part of my mind which therefore right away started coming up with creative and imaginative solutions for how business would OF COURSE carry on (and improve!) with or without social media.

And it’s also this part of my mind which of course right away finds a way to monetize the damn thing and turn it into epic and highly helpful content for you, aka this workshop!

It’s just how I think, and who I am. I am simply unavailable for NOT moving forward, and nothing will ever ever EVER make me believe that I have to depend on anything outside of me for my results.

So why a whole damn workshop on the concept?

Well, it’s more than that, isn’t it?

It’s a mindset of believing that you always get what you want.

It’s a mindset of believing that everything always works out for you.

It’s a mindset of believing that NOTHING can stop you.

That everything is working in your favour.

And?

That you can monetize ANYTHING, any time you choose, and with no ‘requirements’ in order to do so!

I don’t have to tell you that obvs the outcomes you get directly follow and reflect your mindset and your beliefs!!

Here is what else, as well:

This is not just about making money any time, from any thing, and knowing that even with challenge or things going wrong you only THRIVE and EXPAND!!

For me this goes hand in hand with duh – I get to do all of that on my terms.

By having FUN, and being in FLOW, and with ease.

In fact, the more money the more ease!! #justhowitis

That I can literally click my fingers and money shows up for me, meanwhile I’m just over here doing ma thang.

Speaking of which –

I think it’s about time I shared exactly what I currently DO all day, yeah? And how I do it / fit it all in / honour ALL the areas, PLUS manage to spend so much time sitting on my ass doing sweet FA!

In other words … !

Let’s hang out together this weekend!!

Introducing:

What We Will Be Covering!

1) How to Monetize ANY Situation, Including But Not Limited To:

* When social media or any typically depended upon platform goes down (including examples of how I have down this several times, to the tune of tens of thousands)

* Hater situations (including examples, again multiple times, again tens of thousands of dollars)

* When you make a fool of yourself / something embarrassing happens or you screw up (also examples! also lots and lots of lovely moolah)

* When people ‘screw you over’ (ahem, we will talk about this) or desert you (also examples! more money!)

* Basically how to turn any and all life situations, moods, changes of the moon, emotional ups and downs, real life SHIT, to money!

2) Why the ‘When Shit Happens’ times are often the BEST times to make money, aka this is where I teach you what it really means to understand human psychology in terms of SALES, and the mindset of being an actual IN THE FLOW entrepreneur, who ALWAYS sees opportunity and jumps straight on it

3) When NOT to Monetize (okay that one you can have for free – never!!)

4) Understanding Where Money Really Comes From – and aligning yourself TO the frequency of wealth, such that you can literally NOT.BE.IMPACTED by anything that 99.99% of people think will cost them business

5) Money Vibration Principles Revealed (… my own personal philosophies and things that I live by / instil into my being around this, including my own daily practices)

6) Coding For Success

* How to ALWAYS have an endless stream of ideas

* AUTOMATIC continual unleashment of creativity and imagination, especially in so-called times of struggle

* Seeing past problems and accessing higher self in order to always know the answer, and how to move forward

7) Programming to Upgrade – the beliefs, energetic states and emotional patterns you require in order to be this person, have all this work for you, ALWAYS see and have the ability to act on the shit that will most pay off

The ‘Do What You Want All Day’ Bit:

* Exactly how my typical day flows and how I operate for maximum efficiency of time, energy, mental acuity, soul connectedness, etc

* Getting it all done as a busy entrepreneur (and single Mum, in my case) who also refuses to operate at anything less than EXCELLENT in terms of self-care, fitness, fun, playtime, etc

* Exactly what I do all day, broken down to the detail, to helm this becoming-8-figure-empire

* Exactly what I do NOT do all day, either it just gets ignored (hint: a LOT that most online marketers think matters!), or I let other people do it for me

* Calling in soulmate support, even long before you are ready to afford it

* Optimizing energy, focus, personal power, happiness, general flow. Aka mindset and also brain / nutrition hacks and so on

* TIME MANIFESTATION. OH YES IT IS A THING.

AND, while we’re at it, we will also be talking INSTANT MANIFESTATION. The exact process I use to bring the future into the NOW, by clearing all blocks existing between its reality in the quantum and its physical manifestation in the now!!

I’ll be doing this ‘Rapid-Fire’ Session at the end!!

1) What it really means to be magnetic online – hint: it’s not about having a pretty and polished website or online presence!

2) Bringing the ‘in private / behind the scenes’ version of you to the public

3) Unapologetic messaging and soul baring to call in your true #soultribe

4) Audience quality vs quality, and active elimination of those who don’t ‘HELL yes’ on your content

5) People don’t buy your products, they buy you. No – people don’t buy you, they buy your energy!! What that means and how to let it out

6) Being real about where you need to take care of YOU in order to be able to show up and shine fully

7) Keeping a laser-focus and tunnel-vision on your own path, and having the courage to pave the way that feels right for you even if it’s not been done before

8) Discernment to walk the line between being polarising and positively outrageous as opposed to just a hot mess 🙂 Scaling and magnetizing FROM the chaos of creativity and following the true artists way!

9) Knowing which ideas to work, what will sell, and how best to sell it so that the entire launch and selling experience is fun AND rewarding for both your audience and you

10) Creating hell yes offers that make them scream yes!

  2. Jennifer Sheridan via Facebook says:

    read it this morning, loved it!! made heaps of sense, my prob is i am a picker, not a binger. So even my total lack of appetite is making me hold fat : ( Doesn’t seem fair at all.

  3. Elaine says:

    Thank you! This is a great post.

    One of the turning points for me in my journey to greater wellness and fitness was the realization that you can’t hate the fat off! I agree that we MUST love ourselves and embrace everything about our journeys. My life didn’t get better because I finally lost those layers of oosh, my life got better because of what I learned about myself and how to think along the way.

    Cheers!
    Elaine

      Thanks Tanya 🙂

  5. That often relates to cortisol …

  6. Jennifer Sheridan via Facebook says:

    what’s that?

    1. Kat says:

      It’s your stress hormone. It’s supposed to be elevated only for brief periods, but modern day living (i.e. being busy/stressed/not enough sleep) causes it to often be up in an ongoing way and one side effect is surpressed appetite … coupled with increased fat storage. Do you get enough sleep?

  7. HI Jennifer I answered your question on the blog post; for some reason it’s not showing here …

  8. Jennifer Sheridan via Facebook says:

    okay thanks Kat : )
