WELCOME TO WEIGHT LOSS 101

WEEK 1 - START HERE! 

 
 
 
 

WEEK 1: WATCH THIS VIDEO FIRST!

Welcome to Weight Loss 101!

The next four weeks are going to change the way you look at your body, your health, and your future. I promise.

Sound good?

I thought so.

This program is truly different than anything you’ve tried before because we’re going to combine the foundational support of your digestion, blood sugar, nutrient intake, internal detoxification AND the mental tricks and shifts you need to make so that these changes come easily and become your “new normal.” (No more diet rollercoaster!)

Is this starting to sink in, yet?

Excess weight is a SYMPTOM of other things going on in your body. When we support those other things along with a few dietary tweaks, your body will be able to let go of the extra weight.

Trust the process and get ready to see your health in a totally new way, my friend.

SO BE EXCITED!

Think of this week as a “prep week” of sorts where you’re going to start thinking about your body (and weight loss) differently than you have before. (And that’s a good thing because you’re not looking for a “quick fix” where you gain all the weight back again. Nope. Not this time!)

But first, before we get to ANYTHING else this week, you need to know where you’re starting from.

DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!


Before you go any further, you need to fill out the
Symptom Survey Questionnaire and figure out your baseline score.

👉 Download the 1-page Symptom Survey PDF RIGHT HERE and print it yourself

OR

👉 MAKE A COPY of this GoogleSheets spreadsheet version and save some paper. (You MUST MAKE A COPY before editing, though! Follow the instructions on the first page for saving your own copy before editing.)


WEEK 1 - PART 2

 

 
 
 

WEEK 1: PART 2 (EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED)

Welcome back…

You did your Symptom Survey Questionnaire and got your baseline score, right?

Ok, just checking. 😉

Did some of those questions surprise you?

YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T REALIZE ALL THOSE SYMPTOMS CORRELATED WITH WEIGHT LOSS.

This is the magic, though!

If you recall from the Resolution Rescue Challenge, it’s crucial to look at the digestive tract first and foremost, because that’s where things tend to go wrong, which can lead to weight gain and most of the other symptoms you rated on your Symptom Survey Questionnaire.

(Need a refresher on that or didn’t do the challenge? Click the link below to watch the video and do the Spit Test before you move on. Do not miss this info! It will connect sooooooo many dots.)

Your Spit Test results, along with your total score from the Symptom Survey Questionnaire, are what you’ll be using to figure out if you’re a Walker, Jogger, or Runner when you decide on a nutrition plan next. (Metaphorically speaking…not actual exercise!)

Before you go any further, watch the Gut Health Challenge Video HERE and do the Spit Test.

WEEK 1 - PART 3

 

 
 
 

WEEK 1: PART 3 (discipline + walk/jog/run)

Welcome back…

Now we’re going to get into the fun stuff….discipline and the compound effect versus willpower.

Stick with me….this is a game changer in the area of weight loss.

WILLPOWER IS FINITE

I can pretty much guarantee that just like me, you have tried a bunch of “weight loss plans” that were radically different than your current style of eating and physical activity level. And they were hard to stick to because each meal and workout was a battle of willpower to get through.

Well, that’s because willpower is a finite resource. You only have a certain amount of it to use each day, and when every decision and choice relies on sheer willpower in the moment, there will come a time when the willpower runs out and you don’t do what you told yourself you were going to do.

That sucks.

Would you ever bail on a commitment you made to someone else as quickly as you’ll quit on a commitment you made to yourself? Probably not.

But if you’re just relying on willpower alone to make different choices, you will probably end up quitting on yourself again when your willpower reserves get used up.

Let’s not do it that way this time, ok?

Instead, we’re going to train your brain to know that you do the things you told yourself you’re going to do.

Seems simple, but let me repeat:

YOUR BRAIN NEEDS TO KNOW THAT YOU WON’T BAIL ON WHAT YOU TOLD IT YOU WERE GOING TO DO.

So how do you train your brain this way?

Well, first and foremost, you use discipline instead of willpower.

This is pure magic because unlike willpower, which gets used up, discipline actually increases the more you practice it. (Like exercise! You start off not very fit in the discipline department, but the more you work it, the stronger your discipline muscles grow.)

The coolest thing about this is that discipline trains your brain that you will do what you said you were going to do, so you create trust with yourself and the option not to do something you said you were going to do isn’t even there anymore. (ie: using willpower to make your choices)

LET ME GIVE YOU A GREAT EXAMPLE:

Do you brush your teeth every morning? (I’m going to assume that you do.)

Do you have an internal dialogue/battle every morning on whether or not you’re going to make that choice?

Um, no. You don’t. You aren’t using sheer willpower to get you through your morning routine with a victory that you brushed your teeth instead of going back to bed with a weak promise to yourself that you’d do better tomorrow and brush them for sure.

But why is that?

Because you’ve trained your brain to know that there isn’t an option not to brush your teeth. You are a disciplined adult who brushes. No willpower needed. The end.

And you can do the exact same thing in any area of your life.

THIS IS GREAT NEWS FOR OUR BRAIN….BECAUSE IT’S TRAINABLE!

Today you’re going to decide whether you’re metaphorically “Walking / Jogging / Running” this week, which is all about creating a foundation with a few habits that you can implement with at least 80% success everyday.

This week you aren’t trying to tackle every single change you would like to make over the next year. Nope, just a few that we’re going to master and then build on.

These changes add up to huge results over time (the compound effect) but they also train your brain to know that it can count on you to do the things you said you were going to do. This is discipline, my friend, and it’s even more important than the actual habits you’re creating!


NOW IT’S TIME TO CHOOSE YOUR ADVENTURE: WALKING, JOGGING OR RUNNING

To know what you’re going to focus on for the next week and beyond, you need to do a realistic assessment of your current “discipline fitness level” along with your daily habits and your goals. Choose the plan that you can commit to following with at least 80% success each day.

This will help train your brain to expect success and to be able to trust that you do the things you said you were going to do, which will compound over time into HUGE results as your daily habits change.

Don’t worry…you can change your plan at any time! Just start with a level that is going to be attainable so you learn to trust yourself.

  • Track your H20 + food on paper or electronic

  • Drink enough H20 EACH DAY (calculate your hydration needs here)

  • MEAL PLAN SUGGESTION: Anti-Candida (focus on limiting starches + lots of veggies)

 

recap:

For the rest of the week, you get to focus on creating the habit of discipline by following your chosen plan. Time to start walking/jogging/running!

👉 Download the (optional) Food+Mood log here OR just start writing down what you eat and how much water you drink in a notebook or the notes app on your phone. Don’t overcomplicate this…it’s just to get you in the habit of being honest with yourself and being alright with making mistakes. It’s all about the compound effect, so just START!

WEEK 1 - PART 4

 

 
 
 

WEEK 1: PART 4 (OPTIONAL CLEANSE + RESTORE PROTOCOL)

How to do the Cleanse + Restore Protocol

Eeeeekkkk….I am so excited for you to experience the after-cleanse BLISS when your body gets rid of a bunch of YUCK. (And I’m due for a little cleaning, myself, so I’m doing this protocol right along with you!)

If you need to order your Cleanse + Restore kit, follow the instructions and link ON THIS PAGE and you’ll be all set.

*This should be common sense, but please consult your own physician before starting any protocol to see if it’s a good fit for you. Pregnant and/or nursing moms should not cleanse.

WITH THAT BEING SAID, THIS ISN’T THE KIND OF CLEANSE THAT WILL KEEP YOU IN THE BATHROOM ALL DAY.

Don’t worry. I wouldn’t do that to you!

No weird teas or drinks. Nothing complicated.

You’re just going to take your supplement capsules with 2 of your main meals during the day and one bonus capsule before bed.

Easy peasy.

👉 Download the protocol cheatsheet PDF RIGHT HERE so you don’t have to take any notes or worry about forgetting anything


PHASE 1 (Days 1-10):

LEMON OIL + WATER: 1-2 drops per 8oz of water at least 5 times a day. This will help naturally cleanse the body internally and aids in digestion. **Do not put Lemon EO into a plastic glass or water bottle! Only glass or stainless steel.

LIFELONG VITALITY PACK: 2-4 capsules per day of each Lifelong Vitality supplement taken with meals **I recommend starting with 1 capsule of each at a time and then increasing to 2 capsules of each twice a day for a total of 4 capsules/day.

ZENDOCRINE COMPLEX: 1 capsule with AM + PM meals for a total of 2 capsules per day. This botanical blend supports the liver, kidneys, colon, lungs and skin…which are all responsible for eliminating toxins from your body.

ZENDOCRINE SOFTGELS: 1 softgel with AM + PM meals for a total of 2 per day. This blend also supports the body’s natural ability to rid itself of unwanted YUCK.

TERRAZYME: 1 capsule on an empty stomach AM + PM (optional) but for sure you want to take 1 capsule with each meal for a total of 3-5 capsules per day. These digestive enzymes will help aid the digestion of food and absorption of nutrients.

 

recap:

You’ll be following the Phase 1 “Activate” plan for the first 10 days which consists of taking supplements with your meals. Easy peasy but don’t underestimate the power of this support…your body will thank you!

👉 DOWNLOAD THE DAILY CHECKLIST HERE which will remind you exactly what to take each day. I like to put a sticker label with instructions on each bottle to make it really easy.
