How to STOP Eating!

Our Lady of Weight Loss peppermint.jpg
I know that nighttime eating is a prob … (oops, almost said problem) … it’s a challenge for many of us, so I thought I would share my number one secret as to how to stop eating at the end of the day.
Before I share this vital information, I want you to know that it has worked for me for close to 8 years now. I used it during my weight loss journey (50 pounds gone 4ever!), and I now use this strategy as part of my maintenance plan.
Here it is …
… I end my ‘food’ day with a nice, hot cup of flavorful tea. That’s right – once the tea is poured, the kitchen is closed and all thoughts of food are channeled in creative, artistic and family matters.
For a long time, I was into cinnamon tea, but recently, for variety’s sake, I switched to peppermint. I noticed that I was not only enjoying its delectably sweet taste, but I was also getting off on its aroma. A mighty duo; smell & taste!
Peppermint (mentha piperita) is a naturally occurring sterile hybrid mint – a cross between spearmint and water mint. It has a high menthol content, and is often used to flavor tea, ice cream, candy (ahhh … love those Peppermint Patties – see calories content below*) chewing gum, and toothpaste.
In addition to its unique flavor, it is also valued for its medicinal properties. Peppermint oil (which comes from steam-distilling the plant’s leaves and stems) is used as a muscle relaxant, particularly in the digestive tract, and it helps reduce inflammation in the nasal passages.
Peppermint may …
Treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome – Its antispasmodic effect provides relief of abdominal pain, bloating, constipation and diarrhea.
Relieve Nausea and Vomiting – Both peppermint tea and peppermint oil capsules anesthetize the stomach’s mucous lining.
Control Flatulence and Relieve Diverticulitis – Peppermint relaxes the digestive system.
Reduce Heartburn – The menthol strengthens the flow of digestive juices.
Fight Bad Breath – Apply a few drops of peppermint oil to the tongue.
Lessen Muscle Aches and Pains – Peppermint first stimulates the nerves by producing a cool sensation and then desensitizes the nerves that pick up the pain message, thus the brain is fooled.
Relieve Congestion and Cough Due to the Common Cold and Allergies – Peppermint reduces inflammation in the nasal passages. Inhaling the menthol, while drinking peppermint tea, may also help to lessen symptoms.
Fight Stress – When added to the bath, the aroma of the peppermint oil may help to relieve tension.
Caution: Never ingest pure menthol (the main ingredient in peppermint oil). Even one teaspoon can be fatal.
If you have a hiatal hernia, stay away from peppermint oil. Symptoms will intensify!
Do not apply peppermint oil to the chest or nostrils of a child under five years of age. It can cause a choking feeling.
Stay away from peppermint if you have gallstones.
If you are pregnant, do not ingest large doses of peppermint oil. It’s natural ability to relax can relax your uterus right into labor!
* One (39 g) Peppermint Pattie contains 160 calories; 25 form fat; Carbohydrates, 32 grams, Protein, less than 1 gram.
I guess that’s it. So, drink peppermint tea, be healthy, end nighttime eating! Close that kitchen down!!!

Governor Paterson Declares War … on Obesity

Oh Goody! Just what we needed; another War! There’s the War on Terror, War on Poverty, War on Drugs … and now the War on Obesity!
Governor Paterson announced in a recent press release that he is declaring “War on Obesity.”
Governor Paterson, in case you haven’t noticed, “WAR” does NOT work! Anything that has the word “WAR” stenciled across its forehead is a sure sign of the PAST MASQUERADING AS THE FUTURE!
The Past Masquerading As the Future?
Yes! Exactly. An interesting concept; worthy of exploration.
Governor Paterson is planning to ‘combat’ obesity by declaring war on it. This is a failed strategy, which has been attempted again and again. Although we can, of course, learn from past events, we can also get trapped into relying on outmoded, failed strategies. How many times do you have to ‘hit’ the escape button on your computer before you realize that the darn thing just doesn’t work?
The future, my friends, is filled and overflowing with new possibilities. The future hasn’t happened yet. The future can be a place where paradigm shifts occur!
Governor Paterson, the past is already filled with one war after another on obesity. Enough already with war!
We must learn a new language.
When asked if she would join an anti-war march, Mother Theresa declined. She said that instead she would join in a peace rally. She understood that if we use the word ‘war’ we are, through our words, creating war. Get the difference?
Sit back for just for a moment and let the words “war” and “peace” resonate. What feelings float to the surface when you hear the word war? What feelings when you hear the word peace?
Let us not war on our fat, because inevitably we are warring against ourselves. We can love our excess pounds away! We need to be kind to ourselves and our bodies. Yes, obesity is problematic, but losing weight must be framed from a perspective of compassionate caring about our health and our bodies.
Let us be peaceful warriors as we undertake the task of creating health in our society.
Most importantly, we create the world we live in by our thoughts and beliefs, as the words we use are powerful living entities.

Genesis 1:3 (Hebrew) “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

All things considered, we have the power to create a new, compelling and healthy future … starting with our thoughts and words.
Governor Paterson, your first step in promoting health is to change the conversation. Let us operate out of positivity and hope. By clinging to antiquated concepts and words, YOU ARE the past masquerading as the future.
