Keep Weight Off after a Successful Weight Loss Diet

How to Keep Weight Off after a Successful Weight Loss Diet

One of the most common questions I get asked by people during their weight loss journey is ‘How to keep weight off after a successful weight loss diet’. Let’s face it … you don’t want to lose weight only to put it all back on within weeks or months. That’s demoralizing.

As part of our weight loss program we show people how to lose weight as well as how to keep it off afterwards. Throughout your diet your relationship with food will also change allowing you not to crave sugars or eat so emotionally.

During our weight loss program most people typically lose around 1kg per week on the HcG Diet and about 1/2 kg per week on the Shake It Diet. Each diet has its pro’s and con’s and the diet you chose will largely depend on the amount of fat you need to lose and your personality type.

DNA rebalancing with the Physiospect

By | Blogs | No Comments

Have you been told you have a hereditary health condition or disease?

DNA TreeIf so, Then a DNA Rebalancing with the Physiospect may be able to help you.

Have you been told your family genes increase your risk of developing diabetes, heart conditions, thyroid disorders, Alzheimer’s, dementia, cancer or some other health condition?

Did you know … your state of health is not limited by a diagnosis that identifies a family history or a particular gene expression?

Why not have your DNA rebalanced and harmonized so you can perform at YOUR very best.

Your DNA holds all the instructions on how to create new cells, where to go in the body and how to function as a particular tissue, organ or gland.

Scientific studies have confirmed that we are exposed on a daily basis to many environmental and technological toxins which damage our DNA. Our ultimate ‘’set of instructions’’ are corrupted by these exposures which creates dysfunction within our body that increases from generation to generation.

You may be doing lots of things to help yourself with regards to your health, but if each new cell you create is equally corrupted with damaged DNA, then you will only reproduce more of the same thing.

I have Insomnia and I can’t sleep!!!

I have Insomnia and I can’t Sleep !!!

If you suffer from some form of Insomnia then you are not alone. Around 30% of Australians have some form of Insomnia ranging from a disturbed restless sleep to full blown Insomnia or the inability to sleep. People with insomnia often have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep as long as desired.Insomnia ... Counting Sheep

Why is Sleep Important?

It is during sleep that most of the body’s repair happens. The body is in an anabolic (Building) state and it is during this time that we build muscles, repair injuries, strengthen our immune, cardiovascular and nervous systems. A large proportion of the body’s detoxification also happens during sleep as does a large amount of our emotional processing. Following a good sleep not only do we feel more energized and refreshed but we often have less aches and pains and have an increased ability to tackle the daily stressors of life.

 

Studies have shown that if you get on average less than 6 hours of sleep per night you function the same as if you have a blood alcohol reading of 0.10. Studies also indicate that an adult should sleep on average 7.9 hours per night, a teen 8.5 – 9 hours and school age children between 10 – 11 hours per night. But what happens if we don’t get enough sleep?

Arthritis, Pain and Inflammation ruins Lives

Simple things that many of us take for granted such as brushing our hair, opening jars or even getting out of bed are painful activities for some people. Painful conditions such as Arthritis, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis can affect your job, relationships, moods and your ability to live a full and happy life. The good news is that these painful symptoms can be a thing of the past using a comprehensive natural therapies treatment strategy to help resolve pain, swelling, reduce inflammation and help restore your quality of life.

I recently went to a seminar on treating Pain, Inflammation and Immune driven conditions and how using natural remedies can have a significant role in reducing or eliminating pain and inflammation. By supporting the body’s own natural anti-inflammatory systems, removing pro-inflammatory drivers, restoring proper digestive function and providing nutrients to reduce inflammation … quite literally miracles can happen. I have seen people in my clinic recently become pain free by using these strategies.

What is Physiospect

No need to worry. The strange noises that you can hear in the clinic lately are not emanating from Bec or from a naughty weight loss client that we have locked in the room … They are actually coming from ‘Quincy’ Mike’s Physiospect machine.Quincy the Physiospect

The strange beeping noises that you can often hear is Quincy hard at work helping people with a wide range of conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression, pain, digestive issue and autoimmune conditions to name but a few.

 

What is Physiospect

Physiospect fDoctor Picor you: Sometimes it may take a routine doctor’s visit to uncover an otherwise silent deterioration within our body. Other times it can be more dramatic and we don’t need a doctor to tell us something is wrong. We often don’t notice the small and subtle changes that go on all the time, because our body is designed to adapt and cope with all sorts of stressors. As we adapt and change to one stress, the next changes and adaptation to another stress is already happening.

But as the stressors accumulate within our body, our ability to continually adapt and cope is stretched to its limits until our adaptive processes no longer keep pace with the relentless stressors that our current environment and lifestyle throws at us. Read More

The HcG Diet – Your weight loss questions answered.

I have helped thousands of people over the years lose weight and keep it off. In my opinion weight loss is the quickest and easiest way to dramatically improve your health and to also help woman with preconception and fertility issues. I use many diets in the clinic but my favorite diet is the HcG diet. It’s fast, simple to follow, cost effective and it delivers great results. What I also loveis that it seems to work really well on people who have unsuccessfully tried every other weight loss diet going or those who have been going to the gym 3-4 times per week and still nothing seems to be shifting.

Below are some of the main questions that I get asked about the HcG Diet.

The HcG Diet is the Best Way to Lose Weight Fast

How to Lose Weight Fast using the HcG Diet.

We have successfully helped many clients lose unwanted kgs over the years and one program that we use for moving those unwanted kgs is the Hcg program.

What is the Hcg Diet?

HcG (Human chorionic gonadotropin hormone) is found in both men and women, but it is a hormone that is secreted in pregnancy and has the ability to protect the foetus from starvation in times of famine by liberating the long term brown fat stores of the woman’s body as a source of food. Because it is found in both men and woman it’s best to think of it as protection rather than its association with pregnancy.HcG Diet

Using Natural Weight Loss homeopathic HcG drops during a 500 calorie diet, triggers the body to liberate fat stores and reset the hypothalamus (body’s master gland that also controls weight) to assist in preventing rebound weight gain. Read More

How to quickly get rid of Menopause Symptoms such as Hot Flushes and Night Sweats using information most people don’t even know about. It’s almost like magic.Woman in the Freezer from Menopause Hot Flushes

 

It is all too often that I get woman coming into the clinic experiencing Menopause or Perimenopause symptoms such as Hot Flushes, Night Sweats, Fatigue, Weight Gain and Mood changes. It is not uncommon to hear that they can get upwards of 20 flushes per night and that they are so tired and irritable from a lack of sleep.

I feel so sorry for these ladies, especially when I hear that they have had these symptoms for many years. Recently I had one lady who had had over 20 flushes per night for the last 5 years.

Can you imagine the smile on her face when I said that I was confident that I could cease most of her flushes within 1-2 months and that I could also increase her energy levels simultaneously?
