‘Feel the fear - but do it anyway’

Many people don't eat a proper breakfast, so they grab chocolate or biscuits to go with a cuppa then it's the start of the sugar high/low rollercoaster for the day and all the unhealthy choices that go with it.

Here's some tough love...

Not only is this a disaster for your energy, your feelings, managing your hunger, controlling your cravings, helping you lose weight... And so much more...
BUT also your health!

Doing this consistently for any length of time is going to have its effects.

Let us forget for a moment about us wanting to lose weight so that we feel nicer in our clothes etc.

Eating this way is a recipe for risking ill health. Think:

Diabetes.
High blood pressure.
Heart disease.

In fact increased risk of so much more.

There's been a big campaign by Cancer Research UK recently, highlighting the fact that
Obesity is the second biggest preventable cause of cancer after smoking.

Nobody wants to feel this way, but it can change.

It's not easy but it takes one step.
Accepting that change needs to happen, and to get help.
There's plenty of advice out there but too many people read inspiring messages (like this) and do
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WITH IT.

Does that sound crazy to you?

I'm sure there are people out there who have been following me for years yet still do nothing.

Making a change is easy to do when the first step is made.
It leads to another, then another.

Just a small change will slowly, over time, make a HUGE difference.

Let’s say on the 1st January you wanted to lose 2 stone.
Then you learned some great new habits. You kept on going by JUST losing 1lb a week.

Right now you would have lost 19lbs so far this year!
2018 has gone fast and those 19lbs would have made such a difference on health & happiness.

And I guarantee, this could have been done EASILY while having chocolate & other goodies as part of the eating plan.

Below are some tips on how to deal with sugar cravings.

Here's my six tips:

Eat protein at your meals

This helps to keep you fuller for longer. And when your meal is balanced with nutrition from veggies or fruit, you will feed your body with what it really wants. This helps reduce those feelings of wanting or needing something (thinking it's sugar) because your body will be happy that it's getting the fuel it needs.

Get good sleep

When you go to bed and have a better night’s sleep, you will wake up feeling more refreshed and able to make better decisions. Your body will have recharged and your hormones will be on your side. Rather than feeling tired, and grabbing coffee for a caffeine fix or chocolate for a sugar fix to perk you up...which are only temporary fixes.

Get disciplined

Yes we can put things in place to set you up better but when you've got a habit that needs kicking it's going to take some thought. You need to be aware of when you're having these cravings. What's triggering you? Is it certain times of the day, when you're doing certain things around certain people? Think about what you want more. It takes strength, but you'll feel so proud of yourself after you've done it the first time....then it will becomes easier as time goes on.

Change your shopping

Stop buying the junk! if it's not in your house, then it won’t end up in your body. And none of this “oh it's for the kids” BS. Should they be eating all that anyway? And if you do buy things for them, keep them in their cupboard as it's for them...not you!

Get support

This comes up every time. It's the #1 ingredient to success. On your own you'll always find it harder, but when you're around others who are just like you and have someone to guide you, there is a much better chance of getting what you want.

Say NO

This can be very powerful. You'll have temptations and people keeping on at you to have cake with them....Just say no. It only makes THEM feel uncomfortable. That's their problem - not yours. Do what you KNOW will make you happy.

Don't be the person who reads, and looks and thinks.
You've got to take the first step.

Stop thinking and complaining. Take action.
