WELCOME TO WEIGHT LOSS 101

WEEK 2 - Sugar, Sleep + Detox

 

 
 
 

WEEK 2: WATCH THIS VIDEO FIRST!

This week is ALL about sugar, sleep + detox….and how they will help (or hinder) your weight loss.

Last week we started out with a ‘prep week' of sorts where you got familiar with the Walk/Jog/Run concept and choosing your own timeline.

It feels good to make some of those easy habits second nature, right?!

This week we’ll be layering a few more easy habits to the mix, but make sure you’re building trust with yourself first and foremost that you do the things you say you’re going to do.

Stick with a plan (either metaphorically walking, jogging, or running) that you can stick with around 80% of the time.

This week we’re ditching sugar because it makes you fat and sick. Period.

But there are some interesting effects that come from cutting out sugar, so we’re also going to talk about the ninja detoxification techniques you can start implementing this week to help your body clear out the junk.

See you in Part 2!


WEEK 2 - PART 2

 

 
 
 

WEEK 2: PART 2 (energy, Sleep + blood sugar)

Welcome back…it’s all about SUGAR this week!

Before we dig in, let’s get a little context about why this is such a HUGE issue right now:

In 1821, the average American consumed 10 pounds of sugar per year. (Which was higher than ever before in history, but we were doing just fine.)

Today, the average American consumes 180 POUNDS of sugar per year. That’s a full grown man!

(Clearly, our bodies cannot handle it and we’re seeing the scary effects right before our eyes.)

So now are you feeling a little nervous about this whole sugar topic this week?

Don’t worry…

WE’RE ABOUT TO CONNECT THE DOTS ON A WHOLE LOT OF STUFF RELATED TO WEIGHT LOSS AND ENERGY.

You’re going to feel FANTASTIC.

First and foremost, we have to remember that everything is connected. Insomnia, achy joints, lack of energy, cravings…they are all connected, and by addressing the root cause you will see improvement in all different areas.

Cortisol rhythms, which are responsible for our sleep cycles, are HUGELY impacted by blood sugar balance. (Not sure what blood sugar balance means or how to measure that? Make sure you watch the video above!)

Common signs that your blood sugar levels are spiking and crashing:

  • Feeling physically full, but still hungry after a meal

  • Don’t feel satisfied, feel like something was missing from the meal

  • Feeling hungry again soon after a meal

  • Need to snack between meals

  • Desire for sweets

  • Too much or too little energy

  • Becoming hyper, jittery, shaky, nervous or speedy

  • Feel hyper but exhausted underneath (wired but tired)

  • Energy drop, fatigue, or exhaustion between meals

  • Mentally slow, sluggish, or spacey

  • Inability to think clearly or quickly (brain fog)

  • Overly rapid thoughts

  • Inability to focus

  • Irritability between meals


Do any of those ring true for you?

If so, this is your week!

It’s time to decide if you’ll be Walking, Jogging or Running this week.

Remember, like I said in the video: (you watched it, right?!)

DON’T THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATHWATER.

If you’re not ready to layer these in quite yet, just try to make a reduction this week and wean yourself off instead of quitting on yourself. (Keep notes in your Food + Mood log to track your progress…it adds up quickly!)

Ok, without further ado:

WEEK 2 - PART 3

 

 
 
 

WEEK 2: PART 3 (all about the detox)

Welcome back…

Now we’re going to get into the fun stuff….detoxifying all the nasty CRUD out of our bodies.

Because let’s be clear: we live in a TOXIC world and the effects of those toxins on our health are massive.

👉 If you missed the “Are Your Air Fresheners Making You Fat?” topic in the Resolution Rescue challenge, I highly recommend you check that out as well. CLICK HERE to watch now.

Ok, here we go!

WHAT A DETOX REACTION FEELS LIKE

When your body is flooded with toxins that it’s struggling to eliminate, it can be an uncomfortable feeling. (Which is what we’re going to be avoiding by ramping up the Detoxification efforts this week.)

Flu-like symptoms, grogginess, irritability, digestive ‘issues’ accompanied by frequent trips to the bathroom, nausea, chills, breakouts on the skin (and did I mention irritability?!?!) are all an indication that you could use some extra detoxification support.

Remember, when you’re starving the yeasties and beasties in your digestive tract of all the sugar and starches they are used to eating, they will die. And then your body will need to get them OUT.

For this reason, the importance of water and enough veggies cannot be emphasized enough!

Along with plenty of water and veggies, consider some of the strategies I discussed at length in the video above:

DIGESTIVE SUPPORT

  • Dandelion Root Tea

  • Lemon Essential Oil in water (I would only ingest doTERRA brand) for limonene + liver support

  • Slim + Sassy Essential Oil blend for metabolic support + sugar cravings

ORAL SUPPORT

  • Oil pulling with coconut oil + doTERRA peppermint essential oil

  • Tongue Scraping each morning (before drinking or brushing teeth) with a copper tongue scraper

SKIN SUPPORT

  • Dry skin brushing with natural bristle dry brush (always brush towards your heart to stimulate lymphatic flow)

  • Armpit detox with bentonite clay + melaleuca/tea tree essential oil

  • Breast detox with coconut oil + frankincense + grapefruit essential oils

  • Switch to SAFE deodorant if you haven’t already done so! (doTERRA Balance natural deodorant is my favorite)

SWEAT IT OUT

  • Dry sauna if available (my fave!)

  • HOT detox bath with baking soda + epsom salt + essential oils for 30-45min to work up a good sweat

REST

  • When your body is detoxifying, consider gentle movement over high intensity exercise

  • Sleep is KEY for both weight loss and detoxification, so turn out the lights EARLY!

 

recap:

Detox time!

👉 Continue Walking / Jogging / Running this week and layering on those new habits. Your body is THANKING YOU!

AND

👉 Consider adding in some of the detoxification support techniques discussed above to mitigate any ill effects. Every little bit helps!

WEEK 2 - PART 4

 

 
 
 

WEEK 2: 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 2 (Days 11-20):

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.

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.

GX ASSIST: 1-3 softgels with meals for 10 days. (Gauge dosage by how you feel afterwards.) This blend will support the re-balancing of your gut health.

 

recap:

You’ll be following the Phase 2 plan for days 11-20, which start this week. The only difference from Phase 1 is the removal of the Zendocrine softgels and addition of 1-3 GX Assist softgels to be taken with 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.
