I don’t usually give weekly scan reports because it has to be taken into context of a big picture with enough clients.
However, the results last week (gained 11.86lbs of fat over 23-clients) is worth mentioning.
I get that it’s only 1/2lbs of fat gain per person and certainly no need to panic but It does give us a chance to reflect and improve.
Some people are having difficulty ‘Righting the Ship’ after the holidays.
I get it.
Many clients have heard me profess about the 48-hour rule, some multiple times.
It was intended around losing weight and dropping fat by getting over carb/sugar cravings.
And it’s true.
But during this time of COVID-19 I realized now more than ever, it’s also the kingpin to remaining healthy (it damages your immune system).
If this time has taught us anything, it’s that we can’t afford to have Underlying Conditions.
- High Blood pressure
- High Blood Sugar
- Heart Disease
- Kidney Disease
- Thyroid disorder
- And more
While I will ALWAYS encourage the right kind of exercise for metabolism enhancement, joint health and bone density, a consistently good diet is even more important.
Let’s focus on Diet and the 48-hour Rule:
This will help to overcome the diet ‘struggle’ that many are facing….especially regarding carbs (simple and complex sugars).
- Ice cream
- Snack foods
- Sugary snacks
Many of you have a sweet tooth, but you’ve had enough over the last four to six weeks.
We all know we should eat better, by cutting out sugar or eliminating sugar from your diet.
Many of us even know how to eat better.
But it can be tough and touch to stop sugar intake cold turkey, even with good intentions:
If you are off track – IT’s HARD to get back on track!
Keep in mind, sugar is a drug. Refined sugar can have side effects that can cause withdrawal symptoms.
It changes you:
- Physiologically – Body
- Psychologically- Mind
- Addictive – Pain/Pleasure Systems
And like any drug, it has a 1/2 life.
Some drugs have a long 1/2 life (6-12mo)
Others, are short.
Sugar = 5-days (pretty short)
The 48-hour rule.
So what about 48-hours?
The majority (85%) of the 1/2 life of sugar is exhausted within the first 48-hours.
I mention this because if you are eating poorly or in a bad place, it’s just 2-days from turning it around.
Now, I don’t mean that you’ll get to your goal weight, body fat and eliminate Underlying Conditions within 2-days.
However, it does mean that your sugar CRAVING will be diminished within 2-days. You most likely will experience some sugar detox symptoms.
It will be easier for you to maintain a good diet, without carb cravings and with better control.
All of this will lead to lower Insulin Levels.
And to review, low insulin levels mean:
- Less body fat
- Lower fat weight
- Smaller physical size of your body
- Less vessel wall damage
- Healthier organs
- Better energy
- Less risk of cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and stroke
- Improved mental outlook
- Better and Deeper Sleep
- Less risk of COVID or other infectious diseases
And that’s the short list!
Get through the challenging 48-hours and you’ll be well on your way.
