Drinking Diet Coke Does Not Mean You’re On A Diet

Friday, February 11th, 2011 by admin

Remember- the taller you are, the easier it is to be slender. But trust me, you still have to work at it.

James Duigan has been Elle Macpherson’s personal trainer for the last 15 years and he’s recently revealed the secrets behind her enviable figure. He believes that the first step to weight loss is a strong commitment to a healthy lifestyle.

Duigan offers these tips to lose weight and stick to your diet:

*Make the commitment! Find the determination to make changes to your eating habits and, most importantly, to stick to your diet.

*Eat clean and lean – eliminate processed foods from your diet.

*You need to eat lean and clean. Once you get that right, everything else will fall into place.

*Cut out wheat and sugar. Eating processed, low-fat food and drinking diet coke does not mean you’re on a diet.

“It’s not fat that makes you fat, it’s sugar.”

Duigan doesn’t believe in diets that make you count calories, measure portions or ban certain foods. He thinks these types of diets are a waste of time and a solution to lose weight, but only for a short period of time.

*Find the exercise that works best for you. Not everybody can do certain exercises so it’s better to experiment and find those exercises that fit you.

His last tip is to stretch before bed, it’ll help you get a flat tummy.

Duigan is a real believer in these tips, saying that if these are followed properly, anyone can get to have a fit body in about a month.

And trust me- they believe that EVERY OUNCE COUNTS.

Do you find Duigan’s advice do-able? Believable?
Can you find a way to incorporate these ideas into your lifestyle?

What Makes You Happy?

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010 by Fable

There is no food on earth to fill your empty spirit or any hole in your life. Since there will always be missing pieces in our puzzle at any given moment, day, or year, you will need to find something other than food to bridge these gaps.

Again, I will ask you to go on a treasure hunt with me and learn about you. Is there something you do that completely makes you happy? Next time you’re doing it, watch and see if you think about food at all.

Failure vs Process: You Don’t Have To Be Perfect To Lose Weight

Sunday, November 28th, 2010 by Fable

When we let go of the fear to fail and know that we’re going to have a bad meal, a bad food day, a day without working out, and add a pint of ice cream to the equation, we get a completely LOST WEEK!

If you keep in mind at all times that it’s the year that matters and lunch counts even though you blew breakfast, let go of the pressure to be perfect (the worst word ever created). Move on and stop thinking about what you didn’t accomplish and focus on all the things you DID RIGHT today.

Just look to the next opportunity to win, a gift of strength for you and your body. That release of negativity can send you sailing into days on end of healthy behavior.

What do you find to be your most common falling-down point? What are your strengths?
