Do you need a Mentor?

When people want to learn something they go to school to be taught by a teacher who is trained extensively on that which they wish to learn. When it is time to learn to drive you are instructed by your parents (people who have often been driving for decades.) When you want to learn a sport you are guided and trained by your couch. But, when a person wants to lose weight, suddenly it’s time to ‘pull up your boot straps’ and do it on your own. Why is that?

Weight loss, potentially one of the most difficult struggles that a person will ever encounter, is a job that people believe one should be able to accomplish on their own. It is unrealistic to think that this is something you can handle. If you are overweight it is because you never learned the proper skills to healthy eating, and/ or you do not have control over what you are eating. There are very specific foods and activities that will allow you to control your food intake more effectively. To learn what foods you can eat without binging, and to acquire the skills you’ll need to practice to get skinny and stay skinny you need to be TAUGHT! We aren’t born with this knowledge or these skills, and you do not have to feel bad or guilty for needing help. You need someone to rewire your brain, you currently have the brain of a fat person, you need a Skinny brain to be skinny.

Hiring Dr. Wright, the Skinny Coach, to help you with your weight loss will give you the support and education you need to succeed at your weight loss goals. In your skinny journey, you will have questions, you will make goals and commitments, and you will feel discouraged; it is during all of these times that having the Skinny Coach there anytime day or night, to help guide you through, that will ensure your success. You need help to rewire your brain and train you to think like a skinny person, you need to be trained to have correct eating habits, and you need to be taught the right foods for your body. Find out if you’re a sugar addict by taking this quiz or talk to Tiffany Wright, Skinny Coach, and see how she can coach you to success.

Do you watch TV and Eat?

You’re sitting on the couch and you’ve got your show all queued up. You immediately think “what am I going to eat?” Watching TV for most food addicts is what is known as a ‘trigger’ for their addictive activity (eating.) Alcoholics have triggers to drink, such as bars or certain people. Food addicts have triggers that are equally powerful and equally difficult to overcome. Often people think that the ability to only eat when you’re hungry and make healthy choices is simply an issue of willpower, but those people would be wrong. Sugar, one of the most highly addictive foods that a person can consume, actually stimulates the same part of your brain as cocaine; and not surprisingly leaves us with an insatiable need to feed that addiction.

This ‘power’ that food has can seem overwhelmingly and would leave anyone feeling helpless. In some ways you are powerless against sugar; of course, all of the foods that breakdown into sugar, such as, white flour. The major problem is that if you consume these foods, you will feel the need to consume more of them, and more, until you’re sick, tired and fat. The secondary problem is identifying where all of these sugars are! You would be shocked at all of the hidden places that you’ll find sugar, and the hidden names that sugar goes incognito under. The most surprising of all of these is the sugar, hidden under the name dextrose, in TABLE SALT!

I’ve now told you that sugar is as addictive as cocaine, and that once triggered you cannot control your food addiction, and finally that you likely won’t be able to find all of the hidden sugars in your food given they’re hiding under different names. That’s where the Skinny Coach Solution comes in; there is a way to free yourself from your addiction. Tiffany Wright, PhD, also known as the LA Skinny Coach, has spent her career helping people identify the foods that are making them fat and unhappy and then eliminate those foods. She uses a combination of intensive coaching, food planning and food elimination to help you succeed in rejecting your triggers and losing the weight that you’ve never been able to lose before. To find out if you are addicted to sugar take the Sugar Addiction Quiz or you can schedule a time to speak with the Skinny Coach directly.
