Marge’s Testimony

“Tiffany, this morning when I pulled on my jeans, I heard myself say, “This is pretty amazing.” And it is amazing that I am wearing jeans, without an elastic waist, without thunder thighs. I have never shed pounds this easily, and have never before KNOWN they would stay off. Forever. Thank you for The Skinny Coach Solution.”

Why Moderation is Not Good

The harder you work for something, the greater you’ll feel when you achieve it. – Unknown

We have heard a million times, moderation is key. Baloney! If we could moderate, 66% of the nation wouldn’t be fat. The food industry has designed the foods we eat to make it impossible to moderate. Processed foods react with opiate receptors in the brain, mimicking the effects of opiate drugs like heroin and morphine. You can’t moderate sugar and flour any more than you can moderate a heroin addiction.

Not to mention, moderation ignores the serious damage those foods do to your body. High blood pressure, obesity, high blood sugar, damage to the lining of your gut, build-up of toxins in your body – this happens with just a little bit a day.

In addition, it’s easier to make 100% commitment versus 98% commitment because until you decide with 100%, it’s actually not… (continue reading)

Nicole’s Testimony

“I just had my two-month weigh-in and I am down ANOTHER 8 pounds and 17 inches! That makes 17 pounds lost in all, and over 31 inches off of my body! I feel incredible! This past week I had several people comment on how “trim” I am looking. This gives me such motivation and strength! I told Tiffany the other day I have finally been able to stop thinking so much about myself (how big I feel, how I have no self-control, how my clothes don’t fit, how I can’t seem to keep a promise to myself etc…) and have begun using that wasted time to serve others and to enjoy my life! I am now three pounds away from the lowest weight I can remember being since I was 10 years old! Wow!!! Thank you, Tiffany for encouraging me to not wait and get started right away! This is… (continue reading)

Bloating and Weight Gain

Don’t make excuses; make improvements. – Tyra Banks

Bloating and weight gain are very common in midlife, but they do not have to be. There are solutions to help you.

It can be challenging to beat the bloat and lose weight during this time of our lives. What we did in our 20s and 30s is not going to work in our 40s, 50s, and beyond. Our bodies are changing, so we need to change our approach to weight loss.

Diet or Lifestyle Change?

If you’re tired of starting over, stop giving up. – Unknown

Below are things you may have experienced while on a ‘traditional’ diet:

Weight is typically lost quickly in a set period of time Foods are categorized as “good” or “bad” Entire food groups are left out (i.e., dairy, carbs, etc.) Calorie consumption is greatly restricted Progress is dependent on a number on the scale “Calories in; Calories out” Once the diet ends, the weight comes back on…and then some

Here are some things you will experience with a lifestyle change:

Eating healthy, nutritious and whole foods, knowing they will nourish and sustain you Slower, more permanent weight loss because it’s done at a healthy pace Second nature (actions of restriction vs. feelings of restriction) Less likely to experience extreme hunger, food deprivation, and mental stress Measuring your progress beyond what the scale says Something that you can stick with… (continue reading)
