Stop Overeating: Take Control

ART Stop.jpgIf cake is your BFF (best friend forever), if the call of Cheeto sends you into an orange-stained spin, if you start to drool at the mere mention of Cinnabon, and/or if you are mad at yourself for giving in and diving into a vat of chocolate, then pull up a chair and start clicking for an interview that just may change your relationship to food and, in turn, your life.
A MUST READ!
Read as Janice Taylor, weight loss coach, hypnotherapist, and author of All Is Forgiven, Move On interviews Dr. David Kessler, author of, The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite. Dr. Kessler was Commissioner of the FDA from 1990-1997 (under two administrations–one red, and one blue), and during that time he was responsible for putting a squeeze on the tobacco industry and reinventing the food label. Janice found him to be an authentic, caring human being who has battled the bulge himself and is a model teacher for how you can take control of your overeating.
Cracking the Overeating Code
JT: Dr. Kessler, you invested seven years of your life meeting with top scientists, physicians and food industry insiders, exploring and investigating just how we (Americans) have lost control of our eating habits. This research must be very important to you.
DK: Yes, very important on a number of levels. While watching Oprah, I heard a woman speak about her inability to control her eating, and the pain and frustration that accompanied her lack of control. I wondered, “What is going on? What’s driving this?”
And I related to her story. There’s almost nothing in my life that I do on impulse. But foods and the cues that surround them have the power to make me act against my own will. I wanted to understand how this works. I wanted to crack the code.

Eat This: Lose 50 pounds.

transformation soup cover2.jpgOur Lady of Weight Loss and I were thumbing through old recipes, looking for inspiration, when she remembered that I used to whip up huge batches of Gazpacho during my early weight loss days. Without a doubt, these recipes helped me to permanently remove over 50 pounds.
Whether you are grilling this coming July 4th / Independence Day weekend or not, make Gazpacho apart of your weekend plans. You know, so that you have something on hand that you can fill up on – that makes you all happy – that helps you to stay aligned with your goals.
Gazpacho is a cold, healthy, absolutely delightful, delicious and guilt-free Spanish soup that is popular in the summer months. It’s loaded with antioxidant rich foods that help burn fat!
Where is all began …
Its origins are from ancient Andalusia. At that time, Gazpacho was basically a mixture of stale bread, olive oil, garlic, salt and vinegar – a kind of cold bread soup.
Happy accident …
Tomatoes and bell peppers weren’t added until Christopher Columbus serendipitously stumbled upon these veggies, when he discovered America in 1492. He brought these brightly colored foods back to Europe with him, whereupon they were summarily tossed into cold salads. As Emeril would say, “Bam!”
Join with me as I whip up big batches of these fat-burning cold and refreshing summer soups!

A Week of Loss: Saying goodbye to MJ, Farrah and GaGa

Art Avocado Angel2.jpgIt has been a week of loss. Michael Jackson died, as did Farrah Fawcett. And, on the Beliefnet.com home front, Holly Rossi, lost her fascinating grandmother, GaGa.
Holly’s heartfelt and eloquent piece, posted in her blog Fresh Living, touched me on multiple levels. I love that she called her grandmother GaGa, and while GaGa wasn’t the typical cookie baking grandma, she did turn out a mean Osso Bucco, and she was committed to wearing deep red lipstick. A woman after my own heart. Holly sweetly brought GaGa to life.
Holly encouraged us to remember our families, loved ones, those who have come and gone. And so I did. I stopped and sat and remembered … my brother who died two short years ago from Pancreatic cancer, my father who left us a few days after September 11. The word loss floated before me.
The dictionary meaning of loss is “to be deprived of something or someone.” It is a failure to keep or get something valued.
I now know that there is no loss in death, because we were left a treasure that has lasting power. Let us remember all that we have gained this week. All the magic, the song, the dance, the movies, the books, the smiles and the angels.
Visit Holly’s GaGa and leave a note of rememberance.
More Living!

Depressed, Stressed and Overweight?

dog breaths.jpgFeeling stressed? Depressed? Overweight? Help is on the way! Janice Taylor, Beliefnet blogger brings word to you from the far side … Australia!
A new Queensland University of Technology study suggests that breathing can be a highly effective alternative to drugs when treating anxiety and depression.
As we know, anxiety and depression often lead to emotional eating, which results in weight gain! Researchers explain: In response to stress and trauma, people tend to hold their breath which reduces Serotonin production in the brain! Serotonin is known as the ‘happy neurotransmitter’ as it helps to regulate or moods.
Breathing can:
1. Affect our metabolism.
2. Affect the quantity of food we ingest.
3. Make us feel better mentally, physically & emotionally.
4. Calm us.
5. Release endorphins, which help us to feel happy.
6. Enhance our appearance.
7. Make us feel instantly stronger and thinner.
8. Revitalize and energize every cell in our bodies.
9. Increase our energy level.
Breathing has the power to lift our spirits, and aid in our weight loss efforts. Healthy breathing helps us maintain the right balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in our cells, which has a favorable impact on our metabolism and our moods!
Jon Kabat-Zinn, University of Massachusetts Memorial Health Care Center, says “Every breath, actually, is a release not only of air, but all the pent-up energy in the body. Every in-breath can be restoration or revitalization, and every out-breath a letting-go of anxiety or anger or tension or irritability.”
Dr. Andrew Weill offers some simple breathing techniques.
