Why Crash Diets Do Not Work (Not Keto- Not Juice Cleanse – Not Starvation)

Crash – and burn. All crash diets have the same result, eventually you crash and burn. Once you go back to the sugar, the flour and the overeating you will gain the weight back, and statistically, you are more likely to gain more than you lost and adding some.

Obviously people do these diets because they have quick results, and also because restrictive diets tend to be easier to follow. You know the rules and it is very clear what you can eat and what you cannot. The restrictiveness makes following the plan very easy in the short term and with the reward of fast weight loss- it is not wonder people keep falling for these get thin quick fixes.

Why do you gain the weight back and why do these diets only work in the short run? After some time, usually 10 days or so, sometimes longer, the lack of nutrients, vitamins and minerals that you need for the body to function causes your body to resist these types of diets. Your body adjusts to the changes and because it is missing so many key ingredients for a healthy functioning mind and body, your system goes on lock down and will store anything and everything it can in order to preserve itself. This of course slows down your metabolism and causes weight gain.

THE WORST PART and what most people don’t know or think about is when you lose weight you are losing both fat and muscle. The faster you lose- the more muscle you lose BUT, and this is so important, when you gain it back – which you will, you will gain back only fat. Therefore, even if you were the exact same weight as before you started, your body will have a much higher body fat index. You will be squishier, less strong and your clothes will not fit as well as they did before.

Think about this – would you rather lose weight fast even if it means losing wonderful, strong, beautiful muscle? Even if it means you lose pounds but not many inches, because fat takes up so much more space than muscle? I can’t imagine if anyone could see what diets like Keto do to the composition of your body, the strength of your body and the texture of your body that they would ever embark on these diets – it is ugly, unhealthy and unfortunately the muscle is lost forever.

If you are over 30 years old, you have to know that crash diets, like anything fast and easy, don’t work. I know the desperation involved in wanting and desperately longing to lose weight, but these crash diets are not the answer.

The Skinny Coach Program is healthy and simple and includes a change in the neural structures in your brain that make it EASY. You can fix this with so little effort, simply take the sugar and addiction quiz and schedule a call with me. I do these calls at no cost because I believe everyone should know what true healthy options are out there that will help you out of this vicious weight cycle.

I lost 20 pounds! on the Skinny Coach Program

1. My recent 20lb weight loss over the last month has been great especially when I can see a very real change in how my clothes fit, markedly decreased swelling in my feet and ankles, and much lower blood pressure.

2. My food bill is much less now while cooking at home compared to eating in restaurants and drive-thrus all the time.

3. By avoiding flour and sugar completely, and pre planning my meals I have had no serious cravings, no suffering/deprivation/ white-knuckling.

My success from Dr. Shane

205.4 lbs was my beginning weight on day 1. My chest/back, waist, & tummy is where I carried most of this extra fat. On the 36th day, my weight was 193.5 (11.9 lb loss). The loss in inches was more dramatic with a total loss of 16 inches. I knew carrying lots of extra fat in this torso area was unhealthy and that needed to change.

Being self-conscious about my appearance was a regular thing for me, especially going around without a shirt in public & even at home. I have noticed in the past week that it has been much easier to walk around without a shirt. It doesn’t seem to bother me. I definitely notice changes in my appearance as I look in the mirror as I walk to the showers at my gym. That feels great!

At first, it was a bit frightening thinking about eating out, vacations, traveling, & parties in regards to eating well on this plan. By asking my Skinny Coach lots of questions & having suitable food backups, the tension around them is minimal. I will admit that it is a lot more work to maintain the plan in midst of restaurants, parties, & theme parks, but I know the payoff is huge and I feel more confident being able to stick to the plan now. This payoff will not only affect me, but my wife, my kids, my friends, & my patients. That is a big part of what keeps me going.

I am excited to see how the next month unfolds & what it will be like for me when I reach my goal. Hopeful & confident that I will reach my goal sooner than I think.

Thanks,
Shane (Chiropractor)

12 Ways to Actually Lose Weight

By Kelly Lynch of WorldLifestyle in Health+Fitness

Dr. Tiffany Wright, Ph.D studies the link between behavior and weight loss, focusing on compulsive overeating. She created the Skinny Coach solution, based on scientific facts about the body and the chemistry of food.

Having lost 100 pounds herself, Dr. Wright’s method involves coaching her clients through personality motivation and behavioral modification. Here, she shares some tips that cut through the excuses we often give after failing to lose weight.

1. Remove the sugar and flour! Eating too much sugar and flour over time causes our cells to become insulin resistant. When your brain cells become insulin resistant you can lose your memory, become disoriented and can cause protein plaque that is linked to Alzheimers. You have had enough sugar and flour for the rest of your life. It is time to get our mind and bodies fit and healthy and there is no place for refined foods in a healthy body.

2. Switch from flavored yogurt to plain, whole fat yogurt.  Most fat-free yogurts contain extra sugar to make up for the lack of taste in the nonfat versions. Cook some frozen berries until they are warm and gooey then mix that into your yogurt and add some cinnamon for a tasty treat.

3. Don’t feed your addiction. Sugar is highly addictive and for some one bite is never enough, so if you cannot moderate then you have to go cold turkey. Look on the ingredients list for any type of added sugar and if it is there, leave that food on the shelf. Make sure you eat enough protein, fruits, veggies and whole grains like rice, potatoes, and beans so that your blood sugars stabilize.

4. In order to lose weight permanently, you have to learn dieting skills and practice them every day, and with time dieting will become easier and easier. For instance, if you normally say, “I’ve worked really hard today, I deserve to eat,” which drives you to eat, instead practice saying “I’ve worked hard today, I deserve to relax with a walk or manicure.” You have to replace long established patterns and associations with productive patterns and associations and then practice them every day until they are set.

5. When you are feeling like “one bite does not matter,” remember that every healthy dieting choice you have ever made was sabotaged by one bite. One bite does matter. Think: “If I eat this, I will strengthen the habit of failure and unhealthy eating, which will make it more likely that I given in next time.” Think: “One bite does matter, I am not going to eat this because it is not good for me and I don’t eat what is bad for me.”

6. Regular weighing is critical. People that monitor their weight regularly lose more weight and keep at a steady weight. Weigh yourself once a week and if you gain more than 3 pounds, buckle down and get back to your normal weight before it is out of hand.

7. I know you heard this a million times – eat breakfast! But more importantly, eat protein at breakfast. Eating protein increases muscle mass, which increases your resting metabolic rate. Protein at every meal also stabilizes your blood sugar which keeps cravings and energy dips at bay. Try a Skinny Girl Smoothie: 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt, 1 cup of frozen fruit, and 1/2 cup of liquid egg whites blended in a magic bullet.

8. Boring is okay. People often worry if they are eating the same thing all the time that they will be bored and that will make them cheat. In reality, research has discovered that people who eat the same things regularly consume significantly less calories. If you want to vary your menu, by all means you should. However, do not worry if you like the same Skinny Taco Salad every day for lunch. Skinny Taco Salad: 4 ounces ground beef cooked with chili power, garlic, and cumin served with 1/2 cup of garlic black beans, 1/2 cup of brown rice, 1 cup of fresh salsa, and 1/2 avocado on a bed of shredded lettuce.

9. Flour is worse than sugar. 2 slices of WHOLE WHEAT bread increases your blood sugar levels more than table sugar. If you have ever tried to give up sugar and still had cravings, withdrawal, and lack of weight loss, it is because you are still eating flour. ANY flour is processed and as such is immediately converted into glucose, which causes a cascade of negative health and weight consequences, including premature aging, obesity, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes. If the ingredients have any type of sugar or flour listed – leave it out.

10. Plan your menu for tomorrow, commit what you are going to eat, and then stick to it. Menu planning and accountability dramatically increase your chances of eating what you want rather than giving in to temptation at the moment. When you wake up, if you already know what you are eating for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you are less likely to get into a dialog in your head about what to eat or not eat. Plan, commit and just eat it – no matter what, and you will be Skinny Forever.

11. Remember being a little hungry is okay. Being hungry is uncomfortable, but remember that when you overeat, that is uncomfortable, too. Both feelings are uncomfortable, but one gets you skinny and the other has made you overweight.

12. You cannot have everything you want and you know that in all areas of your life. But for some reason with food, people think that you should be able to eat anything you want or you will feel deprived and binge later. That is nonsense. If you were allergic to strawberries, you would not eat them. I am here to tell you if you are overweight then you are unable to eat whatever you want and be healthy, so you should not eat those foods that make you fat, sick, and tired. You can have a cupcake or you can have health, but you can’t have both. Which do you want today?

How Rachael Handled the Bake Sale

I am feeling exceptionally good this morning and feel like writing, a month into maintenance after dropping a cool 51 lbs this year. It is the day after the big AYSO Picnic in the Park event with which I was very involved this year – soccer tournament and kids carnival – long hours in the sun, lots of physical activity, kids running wild, you get the picture.

On this day, day 198 on plan, it was there I found myself pushing my hand-truck of boxes past sponsor booths, games booths and the dreaded FOOD booth, breathing the savory aroma of fresh pizza, subway sandwiches, chips and chilled juice boxes. Not one other bite, I repeated to myself, you’ve eaten all this before and really, where did it get you?

Next up, the catering booths – tacos, bacon wrapped hot dogs, I don’t know what else but again, armed with my mantra, I turned aside, hell-bent on my mission to get to the end of the field with NOT ONE OTHER BITE.

And just as I rounded the last row, I peeked to my right and there I saw it, a booth so crowded it’s 6 foot tables were completely obscured by kids and parents jockeying for position, thrusting their tickets at the volunteers with requests I could barely make out over the noise. Slowly I glanced up at the banner hanging from the easy-up canopy and like a lighthouse beacon calling out to a lost ship I saw it …. BAKE SALE!…BAKE SALE!….BAKE SALE!

Slowly and with great caution I approached the far side of the booth, for I had to pass this way in order to deliver my crates of supplies. Eyes forward, I stole a glance at the plates and platters piled high with… with….well, I won’t torture you longer with my ranting and raving. Suffice it to say, if it went in an oven and had frosting – it was on that table!

BUT, relying on what I learned from my 10 months of training with Tiffany (and the fact that without tickets, you could not buy food and I purposely left all my money in my car so as to make it terribly inconvenience to buy tickets), head held high, teeth gritted against the onslaught of “treats for sale, help raise money to help your kids!” I soldiered onwards, sailing past the Bake Sale booth and down to the field of carnival games and team photos, safe in the knowledge that having passed this way the first time without incident, it would be that much easier for the remainder of the day to continue to do so.

And it was.

By the end of a 13 hour day, having eaten my own packed lunch of 4 oz turkey burger patty, half avocado, cup of carrots and tomatoes and 10 mary gone’s, I can say, with only slight hesitation (as we know, this journey is an ongoing one) I GET IT.

Thanks! Rachael

1 c. dried black beans
1 c. dried kidney beans
1-14 oz. can of chopped canned tomatoes w/ juices

I presoak and cook my beans with a bay leaf, 2 cloves of garlic and 1 onion for flavor. I found that a quick way to cook the beans is to put them in the rice cooker with lots of water. It takes about an hour from dry to cooked. However, canned beans are perfectly fine too. I prefer the texture of the dry beans.

I chop my vegetables and put them in a large measuring cup. You want 8 cups of vegetables. The following coupled with the tomatoes gets you close. Another option is to serve it with a small side salad.

1 large onion chopped
2 med. carrots chopped
2 med. celery sticks chopped

Sweat the vegetables in one TBSP of olive oil or use nonstick cooking spray. Then add the meat and brown, breaking up the meat into small chunks. Then add the spices to the meat.

2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground coriander
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 TSP. of chili powder (Adjust this to your tastes, also Chipolte chili powder is particularly good if you like a slightly smokey flavor). Briefly bloom the spices in the meat juices and fat, then add beans, 2 cups of water and tomatoes. Adjust salt and pepper as needed.

Simmer for 30 minutes. During the last 5-10 minutes add 1 diced red bell pepper. It will keep more of it’s color and texture if you add it at the end of the cooking time.

ENJOY!

My mom is in surgery

I am sitting in the hospital and am amazed at the number of severely obese and overweight people. The surgery board is full of weight-related surgeries. I wonder what percent of surgeries are the consequence of people not being able to control what they put in their mouth? 100%? 90%? 10%? What do you think?

If you are over 45 years old, like I am, I am sure thoughts of health are becoming more relevant than issues of looks and vanity. The CDC says all overweight people compared to normal weight people are at an increase for “All causes of death.” ALL! Lets see – high blood pressure (meds until death), high cholesterol (meds until death), type 2 diabetes (meds until death), stroke (physical and mental disabilities until death), gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, cancer, low quality of life, mental illness and body pain.

The Skinny Coach Solution is not only a good, healthy diet that has been recommended by many medical doctors, it offers the psychological support and emotional support to change your patterns by changing your brain. It really doesn’t matter how many diets you have tried, you have not tried one like this because it does not exist.

If you commit to being skinny, healthy and in control, then I as your Skinny Coach will be here for you to help you along the way. Every day we work together to keep you on the right path mental and physically. Sign up for a complimentary consultation and we can talk about what is going on with you and why you have struggled before. Most importantly, I can tell you what you can do now to change your health forever.

Treats, treats and treats

It’s October again! The leaves are falling and the winds are changing and the fields are ready to yield their abundance. Horror movies and spooky decorations pop up all over. Ghosts haunt suburban yards and zombies lurk at the mall.

But sufferers of food addiction, October is scary for a different reason. Huge bags of candy line the shelves of nearly every store and bowls of chocolates adorn the desks of receptionists everywhere. Sticky, marshmallow-y popcorn balls and gooey, chewy caramel apples suddenly appear, as if by magic. Super sugary pumpkin spice everything rises once again from the grave.

It always starts innocently enough. You buy a bag of candy for trick-or-treater. Maybe you have a piece or two when you bring it home from the store. Then a couple after work. Soon, the bag is empty and its not even October 26th. You buy more; this time you’re going to control yourself. But by Halloween, the candy is gone and you’re feeling ashamed. Or maybe, even more embarrassingly, you’ve stolen candy from your own children’s little plastic pumpkins. You thought, “Just one piece can’t hurt.” And before you know what’s happened, all the candy is gone. Then the guilt and shame take over.

You feel like a junkie; hiding your habit from your friends and loved ones. You know its bad for you. You know you need to quit, but you just keep going. You satisfy your carvings, but this only feeds the monster of addiction. That’s scarier than any horror movie.

Just like an alcoholic or a drug addict, you can’t control the way that sugar affects your brain. If you had a heroin habit, you wouldn’t be able to just have SOME heroin. Abuse over the course of your life has made moderation impossible. If you could have just one piece of candy, you would. But sugar has changed the way your brain works.

You feel powerless over food and can’t control what goes into your mouth. You read diet books and look for tips online but always end up binging again. Your behavior is making your life unmanageable. But just like with other addictions, you don’t have to go it alone! There is help. If you can’t stop eating junk, no matter how hard you try; if you can’t change your habits, even though you know it’s killing you, maybe it’s time to get professional help.

The Skinny Coach will help you break the cycle of food addiction. You will no longer be a slave to candy and sweets. You can change the way you interact with food. You can save your life!

As an incentive to start today, take the Sugar Quiz and set up your free consultation with Tiffany, the Skinny Coach. Be sure to ask about the special pre-Halloween offer.

4 Secret Costs of Being Fat

It’s no surprise that being overweight or obese has a negative effect on your health. From joint pain to diabetes, poor sleep to shorter life expectancy, being fat is just plain bad for you.

But did you know that being fat is costing you more than just your health? That extra weight is hurting your pocketbook and endangering your life in some unexpected ways, too.

1. Over-Priced for Over-Sized Clothes
If you’re an overweight woman, you probably struggle with self imagine issues. You don’t like the way you look and struggle to find clothes that fit. You might also notice that you’re paying more for clothes. Many stores charge as much as double for plus-sized versions of their normal sized clothes. Boutique stores catering to the huskier set can set their prices at astonishing levels, as the market for extra large clothing grows. In addition, these plus-sized options are often scaled incorrectly, leaving them too tight in the bust, too big in the hip and too short to be decent, meaning you’re paying extra for a worse product. And that’s if your favorite store even carries plus-sized clothing, at all! Recently, all the H&M locations in New York City removed their plus-sized sections to make room for home goods and told over-weight shoppers to take their business online. Target, too, offers only a minimal plus-sized department in store, directing their bigger customers to the website (with shipping costs included, of course). Wouldn’t you like to be able to purchase something off the rack and for a reasonable price?

2. Overweight and Underpaid
If you’re paying extra for plus-sized clothes, you should at least be getting paid more at work. But that is rarely the case. Overweight worker make less money, are less likely to get promotions or raises, and are less productive than their thin colleagues. This wage discrimination stems from fat people being seen as lazy and less disciplined. Overweight workers are less likely to be hired because they are seen as a drain on resources; their health care cost tend to be higher. In addition to the perception of plus-sized workers is the fact that obese people do miss more work than thin people, up to a week extra per year, due to illnesses and complications caused by their weight. So next time you’re passed over for that big promotion or you’re turned down for a job, ask yourself this: Is your fat holding you back?

3. More ass? More gas.
Overweight and obese drivers contend with another “fat tax” at the gas pump. Having 100 extra pounds in the car can decrease your car’s fuel efficiency by nearly 2%! That can add up to $30 extra dollars a year. Obviously, the more you weigh or the more you drive, those costs start to increase. In addition, bigger drivers want bigger car to comfortably get around. These cars get even worse gas mileage, costing you more in the long run. Can you afford to stay fat if gas prices go up?

4. Bigger driver, bigger danger
Paying more at the pump isn’t the only car issue your weight is cause: you are also more likely to die in an accident than a thin driver. Overweight drivers will sometimes skip the seat beat, as they are too uncomfortable. Even if you do buckle up, seat beats and airs bags are designed for average sized driver and are not as effective in protect overweight people. Crash test dummies used to test car safety haven’t change size since they were first used in testing, meaning auto-maker have no data when it comes to plus-sized drivers. Fat drivers are also at a higher risk for getting into accidents. Many overweight people suffer from sleep apnea, making it harder for them to get a restful night’s sleep which in turn makes them tired during the day. Studies have shown that drowsy drivers are just as dangerous as drunk driver. This deadly combination leaves just one question: Are you willing to take that kind of a risk with your life?

So knowing all this, what is your excuse for staying fat? It can’t be money; you’re losing more money by not losing the weight. The status quo is obviously more dangerous than the unknown. Why are you denying yourself the chance to be happy, healthy and wealth!

You owe it to yourself to take the first step toward being healthy. Become the Skinny Self you always knew you could be!

Is your child a dog?

Don’t reward yourself with food – you are not a dog!

Turns out that when you reward your children with food it can trigger emotional eating when they grow up – DUH!

While most parents try to keep their children from eating bad foods they also often reward good behavior or ease pain with these exact foods and it has been shown concretely from research at both Loughborough and Birmingham universities that children were much more likely to emotionally eat later in their lives if their parents used food as a reward or to ease pain.

If you are an emotional eater can you remember instances in your childhood where your parents rewarded a good grade with a special dessert, or perhaps went for ice cream after a win in sports, how about a lollipop after a penicillin shot at the doctors (remember those?), the dentist even gave us candy after filling a cavity! I can think of many ways in which I was given food to placate or deal with bad AND good events and emotions so according to this research I am not surprised I am addicted to food.

The good news is perhaps we can do better for our children now that we know. Think of other ways to celebrate and comfort your children now before the moment happens so that you are equipped.

Now what about you? Is it too late? No, of course not, you can establish new connections, new patterns and change your relationship with food. Unfortunately, because emotional eating is so rooted and cemented in the neural connections of the brain it is nearly impossible to change on your own because you only have the brain you have – the one that currently makes those connections. ReWiring the brain to make new associations and habits, those of a healthy, skinny person requires someone to teach you these new ways of thinking – just like they were taught when you were young – by your parents – the Skinny Coach can teach you how to be skinny. It takes time, it takes dedication but it is doable, you just need to know how. Start by taking the Sugar Addiction Quiz and schedule a talk with the Skinny Coach and surrender to a little help.

Do you have a brain disorder?

Finally, what a relief, it has finally been proven by 80 experts – 80 experts involving a four-year long process that addiction is not a social or moral problem but a brain problem. Food addiction is a neurological problem. Addiction has been treated as a result of emotional problems, a result of trauma, a result of low moral character – and that is why addiction treatment does not work.

After over 20 years of neuroscience research we know that addiction is rooted in the brain’s reward circuitry. Previous experiences with food trigger cravings and to repeat the process because this is the part of the brain that controls impulses and judgement and it damage is permanent. Controlling this “craving” is literally over riding your brain chemistry. Distortions of cognitive and emotional function lead to compulsive need to intake more sugar It is NOT A CHOICE.

What is a choice is getting help. What kind of help can fix the neurological circuitry of the brain that is damaged? One thing we know for sure is abstinence is necessary. The only way to rewire the neural circuitry of the brain is to stop triggering the reward system. I understand that is easier said than done, I did it 20 years ago and I work with people every day to teach them the skills necessary to achieve abstinence and RE WIRE the neural circuitry – to fix the underlying neurological issue. Through a system of cognitive behavioral therapy and behavioral modification techniques, along with daily talks with me, we can get you off of sugar, healthy and, of course, get the weight off. If you would like to know if you are addicted to sugar take the Sugar Addiction Quiz and you can have a complementary cognitive therapy session with me to get you started.

Why suffer another day – just take the quiz and we can talk.
