Having trouble losing those extra pounds?

It seems that no matter how many new approaches, procedures or gimmicks are created, there is a common thread to the complaints I hear from people over 40 concerning those extra pounds that seem to magically come out of no where yet remain stubborn to leave.  It is a big subject and one that deserves attention because of the grief it causes the masses, either in the moment or down the road when illness ensues.

The reality is that there is no quick solution to a long term problem; only a systematic, structured lifestyle plan that is suitable for your body, your lifestyle and one that you can truly get behind.

I like to approach diet with my patients like a house clearing project.  If we can de-clutter, and get rid of what we don’t need in the house, the house will feel cleaner and be easier to live in.  With the health metaphor, once the body is free of debris, bacteria, virus’s, parasites and yeast, you will feel a great sense of freedom – freedom with breathing, freedom in movement, more wakeful and energetic and so much less heavy and weighed down.

In fact, I suggest that one not check the scale, rather base progress on how you feel while going through the de-clutter, or detoxification process.  It is wonderfully motivating, as the joy of feeling good is worth its weight in gold.  Isn’t it easier to bypass those deserts when there are no longer cravings for them?

Through the process of systematic body cleaning and metabolic enhancement we lose the cravings for what we were addicted to and begin to love our new home.  Free and clear of chaos and excess baggage – literally and figuratively.

No need to keep discussing the never-ending need to lose weight – only to begin the process of getting your new home livable and ready to move into, where you will  feel safe, risk- free and beautiful!

There is no better time to GET WELL AND STAY WELL!

Breathe! – Essential for Life

Breathe! Its more essential to life than water, food (yes, even chocolate!) or sunshine; it’s oxygen. Life-sustaining oxygen is transported throughout your body every second of every day of your life, and it reaches all your nooks and crannies. Breathing and the oxygen it delivers, brings your body into balance and works to regulate your metabolism and many other bodily functions. According to the Yogic perspective, breathing properly – which I discuss below – controls the vital life energy known as Prana. But are you getting the most from every breath you take?

Chances are, you are not. You are not alone, however, because shortly after you outgrew the infant stage, you forgot how to breathe in a healthful, balanced way. That’s right: as adults, you and billions of other people have adopted a way of breathing that is more shallow and therefor a less nourishing way of exchanging oxygen and vital nutrients with your cells, tissues, and organs.

Here’s a simple experiment. The next time you see an infant, watch the child breathe. What’s happening? You will see the child’s stomach rise and fall with each inhalation and release of breathe. Does your stomach do that when you breathe? If yes, then congratulations! You are breathing in an efficient and healthful manner. If not, then I am suggesting a change.

Why?….Its so easy to take breathing for granted because you don’t have to think about it most of the time.

These quick-hit strategies can boost your efforts to drop fat and hone a leaner physique.

Find a new snack

Remove anything super processed and/or loaded with fat and sugar. “Instead of ice cream or leftovers, try a whole-grain, higher-fiber cereal with low-fat milk or baked chips with super spicy salsa,” says Kristin McGee, a New York City-based trainer and Pilates instructor.

Drink more water

Your body can misread thirst for hunger; so if you’re dehydrated, that can fool your body into feeling hungry. Drinking water (especially before a meal) fills up your stomach, so you’re likely to eat less. Need some flavor in that H2O? Switch to unsweetened green tea, which contains EGCC, an antioxidant that helps the body burn fat faster.

follow meals with mint

Chew on some sugar-free mint gum or brush your teeth with mint-flavored toothpaste. The mint flavors send signals to your brain that it’s time to stop eating. It also tweaks your taste buds, so second helpings and dessert aren’t quite so tasty.

Do push up every morning


Bang out some pushups fresh out of bed. “It’ll help you start the day with a feeling of success, and it gets in some additional upper-body training,” says McGee. Try to increase the number you do every day. When you hit a plateau, switch to a harder style of pushup.

Rediscover hot sause


Use hot sauce: You’ll eat slower and probably less food because the heat slows you down. Some studies say you might even speed up your metabolism thanks to compounds in the chilies.

Take up Yoga


Yoga and any activity that lowers stress is a good idea. “The lower your stress, the lower your cortisol levels,” says DeVito. That means your body will store fewer calories as fat. Acupuncture and massages also lower levels of inflammation in the body—another known contributor to weight gain.

create a designated eating area

Don’t eat in front of the television or computer where you’re most prone to snacking. Eat at the dining room table or in the kitchen only, says McGee, and you’re much less likely to overeat or grab seconds.
