Lose Weight: The Fat Gene Diet

fat gene artDo NOT Accept Delivery of Your Ancestors ‘Fat Genes’ by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader & 50-pound big-time-loser. (write Janice for free consult)
It is a w i d e l y held belief within my family of origin that all us women are ‘naturally fat.’
I get a giggle from that, don’t you? So much energy expended on wishing to be ‘naturally thin,’ when the ‘naturally fat’ gene was implanted, like a computer chip, before I was born.
The Taylor ‘Fat Gene’ Theory has been passed down from generation to generation. It was seemingly predetermined. And, as a member of this illustrious group, I complied. As you know (or may not know), I was born fat – the only baby in the hospital nursery to gain weight.
So why would someone like me, or you, who has this deeply rooted belief about themselves, whether passed down from mother to daughter, or father to son, or mother to son, or father to daughter … generation after generation, or a relatively new self-imposed belief that you are ‘naturally fat,’ even try to lose weight?

Our Lady of Weight Loss Invites You to
Refuse Delivery of the Family Fat Genes


Take in a deep breath and let it go … on the exhale, see this negative belief float out the sides of you with the fall of your chest or stomach (note where your exhale is coming from), hear it gurgle, buzz, or even clink or clank its way from the inside to the outside, feel the possibilities and know that you now have a clear path to dream. Do NOT accept delivery of your ancestors’ ‘fat genes.’
Take stock of the various ideas, dreams and visions that are buried within. Be willing to invest in your dreams and yourself.
Have faith in yourself. Trust your instincts.
Question your beliefs that stand in your way of your ability to fully commit to yourself.
Own your power; claim what’s yours!

BREATHE DEEP: Lose Weight

Your Breath, Your Metabolism, Your Weight by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, NLP Practitioner, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader & 50-pound Big-Time-Loser! (write Janice for free consult)
Our weight depends on a complicated blend of variables – from how much we move (exercise), to what we eat, how much we eat, how we feel about ourselves, to hereditary factors.
Our weight is even linked to how we breathe.
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.

All of this can aid our weight loss effort. Healthy breathing helps us maintain the right balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in our cells, which has a favorable impact on our metabolism.
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.”
Instead of stuffing down your feelings with food, breathe.
It’s natural. It’s free. And it’s easy.
Try some basic breathing!

Emotional Eating Bail Out

Leave Your Rage On the Page by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, NLP Practitioner, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader and 50-pound big-time-loser! (Write Janice for free consult)
In these particularly precarious and nerve-wracking times of Wall Street meltdowns, plummeting portfolios, free-falling 401Ks, decreased property value, companies crashing, and a $700 billion Bail Out – all happening within the span of a few days – some of us may find ourselves reaching for the tried and true, all time feel-better fix – food, food and more food!
While the financial Bail Out may be necessary (the Democratic pundits make sense; Wall Street is mega-screwed up, but we must protect Main Street), I’m definitely NOT in favor of the Emotional Bail-Out!
People, let’s get a grip on our emotions. Let’s face the anxiety, stress, anger and dismay together. Let’s seek non-food related ways to calm ourselves. Let’s not use these crazy times as an excuse to stuff copious amounts of sweets, carbs, cakes, 32 oz. porterhouse steaks in our mouths to quiet and placate.

There’s no point in trying to escape the upset, frustration, rage, or the disappointments. I, for one, will not let this fiscal crisis wreak havoc with the one thing I can control – my food! I will not let it intrude upon my healthy life. They may have stripped my retirement fund of cash and dignity, but not my resolve.
So, while it is begrudgingly okay to say yes to the Financial Bail Out, I say NO to the emotional eating bail out! No back room deals, rationalizing that you’re stressed out, so it’s okay to go off half-baked and eat a freshly baked anything!
Let’s remain vigilant. Do NOT stuff it down. Do NOT let the weight of the world’s financial woes weigh you down. Here is one sure way to hold on to your healthy way.
LET IT OUT! Join with me, and leave your rage, anger, upset, frustration, sadness, hopelessness, incredulity on the page (and not on your hips, thighs, and stomachs).
Comment … more than once if necessary!!!

Relationship Rescue: Sharing Stress with Your Loved One

Sharing Stress with Your Main Squeeze by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, NLP Practitioner, Author, Seminar Leader and 50-Pound Big-Time-Loser! (write Janice for a Free Consult!)
You are stressed to your last nerve. Things are piling up at the job. Things at home are out of control. And the weather is dark, grey and rainy.
You REALLY need to talk, let it out (lest you devour a jumbo one pound candy bar and at 170 calories per ounce that’s 2720 calories; two days’ calorie allotment) and in walks your main squeeze.
How much stress is appropriate to share with your spouse, partner, significant other … your main squeeze? What’s the difference between sharing and dumping?
True, you need to vent and an important part of a relationship revolves around sharing your life, letting the other person know what’s going on, as well as asking for support; giving support. Leaning on each other … all important parts of a relationship.
Nevertheless, before you dump‘talk at’ the other person, here follows a few truly helpful and useful guidelines:

  1. Ask Permission: “Is this a good time to listen? I need to share the gruesome details of my crazy day.” If the answer is “NO!” Respect that No! Ask, “Please let me know when it is a good time.
  2. Timing: Before you launch into your bucket list of upset, frazzled nerves and complaints (all justified, of course), do check in with your main squeeze to see if he or she is equally stressed.
  3. Be Clear: Are you sharing, looking for feedback, or just need a place to be heard. If all you want is to be heard. Start the conversation off with “Please, do not respond. Just listen -intently! I need you to be with me. That’s all.”
  4. Time Yourself: Vent, talk, share … dump … whatever you want to call it for a maximum of one minute and then check in and see if the person is still with you. Really 30 seconds would be better. Don’t take advantage of the ‘sharee.’
  5. Responsibility: Ultimately, it is your stress. Support is GREAT! But no one can singularly ‘fix it.


Special Note: For further insight into the machinations of relationships, I checked in with Peter Weinstein, LCSW, Psychotherapist, Relationship Expert.
Mr. Weinstein adds, “Being sensitive to your partner’s needs is one of the most important components of a successful relationship. Just as YOU want respect and appreciation, so does your partner/spouse. Putting yourself in the ‘others’ shoes and considering his/her needs (without sacrificing your own need) is true empathy and the cornerstone of relational/marital bliss.
“Janice gives great advice on how to orchestrate getting help and attention from your ‘main squeeze’ in a particularly stressful situation. Nicely done.”
