1 Power Thought – Take Good Care Of Your Body!

How much are you worth? When you are at the lowest point in life, you might think you are worthless and start to use comfort food to relieve your stress. However, if a millionaire wants to pay you $1 million dollars for your heart, would you sell it to the millionaire? No! Take good care of your body so that it can take good care of you!

How often do you feel FANTASTIC after eating the so-called “Comfort Food?”

Not once – That I can recall! Comfort food often make me feel good only while I was eating it. Once I finished eating those extra fat, saturated fat, sugar, coloring, flavoring, preservatives,…I would start to blame myself saying, “I shouldn’t have eaten that big bar of chocolate, I shouldn’t have eaten that big bag of potato chips, or I shouldn’t have eaten that huge piece of cheesecake!” – Have you ever asked yourself the same question too?

If possible, the next time when you experience stress, use the following phase to give you a good start: When Stress Strike, Eat Light – Alex Ong – Think comfort food = weight gain and more pain!!!

3 Simple Tips – Beware of Junk Food – On Sale!

3 Simple Tips: Beware Of Junk Food – On Sale!

Imagine you are at the grocery store and see a sign for a super sale on junk food. Remember that it might look like a good deal, but buying these foods will have a negative effect on your health. For example:

1)      Now bigger: 30% more unhealthy food for the same price! True meaning: It is time to put on more weight.

2)      Buy 1 get 1 half off! True meaning: Start blocking your arteries!

3)      Buy 2 bags of chips for the price of 1! True meaning: Since your heart is still pumping, let’s weaken it!

Buying junk food on sale basically means adding fat to your body and adding emotional pain to your life. Let us face the facts! The more junk food you buy, the more you or your family will eat it. Avoid junk food sales and start taking control of your health. Minimize your junk food intake if possible or buy the smallest size available.

Wish You & Your Family The Very Best,

Buffet, Buffet, All the Way!

Is it worth it? How much can you gain out All You Can Eat Buffets? If you could eat twice or three times as much, do you actually come out ahead? On the surface, it is worth it – to eat more than you paid for. But realistically, you are gaining weight by eating two or three times as much as you need. Unfortunately, the gain is never a profit in your pocket. It is in pounds on the scale.

It will be more fun and pleasurable if your goal is to explore different kinds of food that buffet restaurants offer, or to give yourself a break from your routine meals without overeating. The good thing about buffets is that they normally offer a choice of fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat that first!

 A good strategy for buffet eating is to use at least the White Belt’s Eating Formula in Chapter 16 of Mind Your Own Wellness (which is to fill yourself up a little first, with a big glass of water, before you indulge).

 Imagine this: If the water were to fill your stomach up by 10 to 20% before you eat your heart out, you are less likely to gain as much weight as you did from your previous buffet trip, naturally!

Salad can make you fat!

There are at least two ways of eating salad that I know of:

Way #1:

a)      Get a bowl of salad

b)      Top it with 1 to 2 tablespoons (max.) of dressing

c)      Mix it

d)      Eat it

Way #2:

a)      Get a bowl of dressing

b)      Top it with a handful of salad

c)      Mix it

d)      Eat it

Do you practice Way #1 or Way #2?

 Way #1 is recommended. Way #2 can make you fat because of the amount of MSG, Saturated Fat, Oil, Sugar, Salt, Preservatives, etc…that are added into the dressing.

 Quick tips:

 1)      In full service restaurants: remember to ask the waiter/waitress to separate the dressing from your salad. In this way, you will have full control over the amount of dressing you will be using. If you choose to use up the last drop of the dressing provided – then you know it – it is your own damn fault! Behave better the next time.

 2)      In fast food restaurants: the portion of the salad is usually smaller than the full service restaurants; however, the packaged dressing that comes along with your salad order is often big. Yes, I understand. You have already paid for it; but you really do not have to use up the entire pack of dressing. Just a reminder: the more dressing (fat) that you eat, the more weight you will gain. Resist the temptation to use up every drop of the dressing, whenever possible.

8 Glass of Water?

My clients and audience often ask me the following question:
If I were to drink 8 glasses of water a day, where should my soda/ pop go?

Answer:

After the water! The following is the “White Belt Eating Formula” from the book “Mind Your Own Wellness“: (The easiest way to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day)

– 1 glass of water once you are awake

Breakfast:

– ½ to 1 glass of water

Your regular breakfast order

– ½ to 1 glass of water

– Between Meals: 1 glass of water

Lunch:

– 1 glass of water

Your regular lunch order

– 1 glass of water 

– Between Meals: 1 glass of water

Dinner:

– ½ to 1 glass of water

Your regular dinner order

– ½ to 1  glass of water

– 1 glass of water 2 hours before you sleep

Where should my soda/ pop fit in? Whenever your craving comes into play. Just make sure that you remember to give yourself the freedom to choose to drink a glass of water prior to loading yourself up with sugar water. Just a reminder: Water is for drinking, Soda/ Pop is for sipping!

By the way, if your were to drink a can of soda/ pop a day (let’s say it contains 35 grams of sugar per can), how many pounds of sugar would you have consumed in a year?

Is it 8 pounds, 18 pounds, or 28 pounds of sugar a year?

Answer:

7 bags of 4 pounds sugar – Yes, you got it – 28 pounds of sugar a year.

By the way, sugar is absolutely FAT-FREE!!! – Before you put it into your mouth. Once it is in your body, it will soon turn into fat, if you cannot burn it off fast enough.

Best of Luck,
