Taking Command of Your Weight is about eating less and exercising more, right? Well, yes AND no! This has been the mainstream education by healthcare providers, population health advisers, and government organizations for decades. But we are one of the most obese and sick populations in the world, so there must be something more to it!
Taking Command of Your Weight is about eating well and moving your body, yes, AND there is more to it. This module is really modules within a module. We invite you to complete the 5 steps to Taking Command of Your Weight:
Understanding habits, how they develop, and identifying your own habits will allow you to take command of your weight. Habits, for the most part, are blindspots for us. By SEEing your Habits, you can then Create & Live the Alternatives! This module works for ANY habit you want to change – that is why we are start here!!!!
As you will learn in the stress module, Cortisol, is released in high levels during times of consistent, unmanaged stress. Frankly, cortisol makes us fat AND it makes us crave sugar and carbohydrates! You could be eating all the right foods and still be gaining weight (especially around the abdomen)!
So let’s deal with your stress and its impact on your weight! This is a 28 day module that provides 1 10-15 minute activity each day to support you in SEEing your Stress, then Creating and Living the alternatives to stress and stress management! We have also designed it this way, so you can begin to manage your stress DAILY and make stress management a health HABIT!
Multiple studies have shown that not getting adequate or restful sleep affects weight. Sleep is when we restore multiple bodily functions, including hormones, which affect our metabolism. Without adequate rest, you will gain weight.
Yes, we are going to work on what you eat and why! We will offer recommendations for what to remove, what to add, and what new habits will support you in creating SUSTAINABLE eating pattern modifications!
Physical activity will not cause maintainable weight loss, without the other steps being in place, so we are doing this last. By now, making lifestyle modifications should be old hat to you!
