Ditch the Diet and Break Free from 3 Common Weight Loss Misconceptions

Approaching your healthy lifestyle with an “all-or-nothing” mindset is a recipe for failure. The secret to successful weight management is creating healthy habits rather than restrictions. Here are three common misconceptions that many people struggle with when attempting to lose weight:

Restrict-Binge Cycle

If you consistently skip meals or go long periods between meals or snacks, your body’s natural reaction is to go into “starvation mode”. At this point your body will begin to store calories rather than burn calories. Eating several small meals throughout the day will actually help to promote weight loss and combat cravings. Eliminating food groups or following restrictive food rules can leave you feeling deprived and unmotivated. It’s important to learn to enjoy your favorite foods without resulting in a food binge or feelings of guilt or shame. Instead of cutting out your favorite foods you will be more successful enjoying them in moderation or creating healthy alternatives at home.

Food-Rewards

Exercise is one step forward but a poor diet is two steps back. Do you exercise so you can “eat whatever you want”? Unfortunately it’s not that simple. Even on a basic calorie-level, the amount of calories you’ll take in by eating a fast food burger, fries, and soda is likely far more than you will burn during a workout. If you are finding the time to exercise then you want to make sure that you aren’t working against yourself when you sit down to your next meal. It doesn’t matter how hard you work in the gym if you don’t control what you put on your plate. It’s extremely easy to distort portions or allow extra bites and nibbles after exercising. Don’t fall into the food reward trap. Instead compliment your exercise with healthy foods to fuel metabolism and support muscle recovery.

Weekend Sabotage

Don’t use the weekend as an excuse to give up on your goals. Many social events and family functions revolve around food. However, that doesn’t mean that you should avoid these events completely. Eventually you will be in situations where food is involved and you’re going to have to learn how to deal with temptations. Believe it or not, you can lose weight while maintaining a healthy social life. In fact, by practicing healthy choices while attending social functions you will transform your new habits into permanent lifestyle changes. Instead of feeling deprived by temporary sacrifices you will feel empowered by your healthy choices.

Whether you are working on those last stubborn pounds or just getting started on your weight loss journey, Herbal One can help. We will customize a dietary program to meet your individual needs and make sure that you stick with it.

4 Healthy Tips for Busy Moms.

As a mother of two, I understand how challenging it can be to prioritize healthy eating habits while balancing work and family commitments. However, I also understand the importance of role-modeling healthy living and nurturing positive body image. I truly believe that motherhood has made me a better Weight Management and Nutrition Coach as I can relate to the many challenges that clients face. As a result, I have plenty of tips and recipes for success:

Tip #1 – Portion Control

It is very easy to distort your portions if you do not utilize measuring tools (food scale, measuring cups, single-serving containers etc). Quite simply, it doesn’t matter how healthy you eat if you do not practice portion control. Eating too little or too much will impact your ability to lose weight so I do not suggest “eyeballing” portions. I prefer to measure my foods when I get home from the grocery store. I wash, chop and measure my portions for grab-and-go convenience. This way I don’t have to measure every time I sit down to a meal or snack. I also find that my family is more inclined to reach for healthy foods when they are organized and convenient choices.

Tip # 2 – Planning Meals in Advance

Balancing extracurricular activities and work/family commitments can pose a huge challenge when attempting to eat healthy. I find that planning my family meals in advance keeps me on track on busy days and I am much less likely to rely on take out or eating foods that do not fuel my body. I dedicate time over the weekend to planning my menu, grocery shopping, and prepping meals and snacks. I also stock my freezer with meals that can be prepared quickly so that I always have healthy options available. I experiment with recipes on a regular basis to prevent boredom and to create meals that the whole family can enjoy.

Tip #3 – Informed Dining out

I would be lying if I said that my family doesn’t eat at McDonalds or other fast food restaurants occasionally. Although I prefer to prepare meals at home and pack healthy snacks there are times when we decide to dine out. However, this doesn’t mean that I need to deviate from my healthy eating plan or erase my workout. Many restaurants have nutrition information readily available and this allows me to dine out with confidence. I review the menu in advance to select a menu option and plan my day around that meal. My Herbal One dietary plan is flexible enough to include pizza, ice cream, and even a glass of wine. This allows me to enjoy a meal out with my family without feeling guilty about my food/beverage choice.

Tip # 4 – Me Time

I understand that moms regularly neglect their own needs while tending to children, managing a household, and/or juggling work and family demands. However, I cannot stress enough the importance of filling your cup! This can include attending an exercise class, spending time with friends, meditating or treating yourself to a spa treatment. Find a sport, hobby or creative outlet that you love and make time for it in your calendar. I attend fitness classes at Barre Kamloops regularly and I also meet my best friend for dinner every other week. However, sometimes my form of self-care is just saying “NO” and giving myself the freedom to enjoy a day to do nothing.

You can’t control how quickly the scale drops but you can control how consistently you follow your nutrition and exercise plan. Focus on what you CAN control and progress will follow. Whether you are working on those last stubborn pounds or just getting started on your weight loss journey I can help you achieve the healthy body weight that you have always dreamed of without feeling like you are dieting or depriving yourself. I will personalize a healthy dietary plan to meet your specific needs accommodating your busy work schedule and/or family lifestyle. Call me at 372-8400 to book your FREE consultation!

Redefine Date Night

Do you and your partner bond over food? Date nights are essential for couples and your healthy diet shouldn’t prevent you from spending quality time with your spouse. However, this doesn’t mean that you should throw your healthy intentions out of the window every time that you hire a babysitter.

Romance can be so much more creative than overindulging with unhealthy food and drinks. Instead we suggest that you redefine Date Night and bond with your partner without compromising your healthy lifestyle.

Here are some tips for healthy date ideas to help you rekindle that spark with your partner:

Sign up for a couples yoga class or try a new fitness class together. Increase your heart rate and enjoy the natural endorphin surge that exercise provides. If hitting the gym or attending group fitness doesn’t appeal to you than try signing up for a couples dance lesson instead.

Plan a “Date Day” rather than a night out with your spouse.  Enjoy quality time together without sacrificing your sleep. You will feel connected and refreshed instead of staying up late and feeling sluggish the next day.

Get outside – skiing, snowshoeing, skating.

Be creative – cooking class, art lesson.

Be playful – bowling, escape room, arcade.

Relax – couples massage, float session, spa treatment.

Enjoy dinner out together but plan your meal in advance so that you can review the nutritional information and make an informed choice. Better yet, take inspiration from your favorite restaurant meal and recreate a healthy version at home.

Going out on a healthy date is a great first step toward developing and maintaining a romantic relationship built on healthy practices. We hope that these ideas will help you celebrate Valentine’s Day without sabotaging your healthy lifestyle.

And I said to my body, softly, “I want to be your friend.” It took a long breath and replied, “I have been waiting my whole life for this.”

Body confidence is something that can be very difficult to achieve, especially if you are focusing solely on your fitness level, clothing size, or comparing yourself to others.

You don’t have to look the way society deems desirable to radiate confidence and self love. Confidence is more closely related to how you think rather than how you look. Therefore, body confidence is a matter of mindset rather than your physical size.

Here are a few tips to help you improve your inner dialogue, boost your body confidence, and embrace your shape:

Look beyond the cover! Instead of focusing on your physical appearance, take a minute to acknowledge the qualities and strengths that you possess. When you notice yourself entertaining negative self talk remind yourself of all of your admirable qualities instead of your perceived flaws. Do you have a calming presence? Do you make others laugh? Are you a leader? Are you a good listener? Celebrate your strengths rather than obsessing over body size and your confidence will soar.

Make friends with your reflection! Have you ever taken an honest look at your naked appearance? What do you love about your physique and which features make you feel proud? Instead of focusing on perceived flaws celebrate your unique beauty without judgement or hostility. It is perfectly okay to aspire to achieve a healthier body shape but don’t forget to assess whether your goals are realistic. Are you idolizing unrealistic beauty standards promoted in the media? Keep in mind that weight loss does not guarantee body acceptance or happiness. “Hating your body won’t make you thin, and being thin won’t make you stop hating your body.”

Embrace your shape! Not every fashion trend will flatter your body type. Study what looks good on your body size and shape and invest in quality clothing that makes you feel incredible. The wrong clothing can accentuate the parts of your body that you’re self-conscious about. Taking the time to identify the styles that flatter your shape will ensure that you feel fabulous at any event (and at any size!).
