Can Self-Care be the Secret Strategy to Gaining & Retaining your Ideal Body?
If you’re anything like me, you will have noticed some people have no troubles attaining & retaining their best body (and you want to know how you can live in your ideal body with that ease too). Luckily for you, I’ve researched long and hard to find out why ideal health is effortless for some (and a struggle for everyone else). I’ve found real, applicable solutions (for anyone) to reverse engineer body health (to get into the best health of their lives) making your dream body and easy one to have. One of the crucial elements of getting into your best body effortlessly is to fully embrace self-love in the consistent practice of self-care.
Self-Care: Strategy to Gaining and Retaining Ideal Body Composition Easily?
It’s no fun forcing yourself to do activities you don’t like or abstaining from pleasures you really enjoy. It’s a good thing that, contrary to modern myth, the science says you DO NOT need to restrict your diet or force yourself to exercise to lose weight. In fact, they’ve found restrictive dieting (cutting calories or food groups) ends in the worst kind of failure for most people: diets are proving to damage our metabolisms so badly that weight we lost on the diet not only returns — oftentimes more weight is gained as a result of the restrictions!
Not only can dieting potentially harm your metabolism, in many cases this damage is permanent. Science is finding that most people would have been better off not going on a diet at all (source).
Diets are hurting our efforts to lose weight.
The same principles affect people doing exercises they dislike: they end up gaining more weight back or having to consistently work out more, to achieve the same results or worse… they gain the weight back regardless of the extra activity (source).
Long-term weight loss (according to the research) can only be attributed to certain kinds of lifestyle change.
Making Perfect Health Easy for Anyone — the Ideal Body Composition: Comprehensive
I’ve done painstaking research to create an easy to follow, step-by-step program that is a joy to take part in. I wanted everyone to be able to get dramatic results and enjoy excellent health in the easiest — most natural — way possible. Plus, I wanted it to work for anyone. To do so, I designed the program using cutting edge research, which heals, strengthens & develops individualized growth in each facet of ideal health: I call them your “Personal Powers”.
This comprehensive program is a cutting-edge method that changes your lifestyle into a uniquely optimal one, for your health — which is precisely what the research reports is the crucial factor in long-term health & body transformation — our programs are weight loss, on your terms.
I’m now experimenting on the of my program efficacy by testing it against the hardest odds (to make sure anyone can do it, easily). This week’s experiment is dedicated to: self-care and its effects on weight loss.
The 4 Personal Powers:
District #1: Mental Awareness (Mindfulness) — complete
District #2: Emotions Systems (Self-Care) — current
District #3: Energetic Frequency — next week
District #4: Physical Presence
The 4 Healing & Growth Practices used in the Program:
1 MIDIs: acute morning self-awareness practices (subconscious mind/emotional body reprogramming).
“28 DAYS of MAY” Challenge:
I am taking on all 4 districts of the program one week at a time to share my results of each Personal Power. Each district normally takes 3 weeks in the Ideal Body Composition: Comprehensive.
MINDFULNESS: Week 1 — Results
Last week, the focus of the IBCC program was on mindful clarity & self-talk. This would normally take 3 weeks to complete, but I am testing the entire program against all odds I can muster (I want to make sure it can work for anyone)!
Outcome: I seriously cannot believe how much of an impact the first district has had on my life! I really did not consider that the challenge to test this program would dramatically affect me, as I thought I was practicing these methods effectively already (!), I mean… I designed the programs with my methods! I wasn’t expecting to be affected potently by practicing the course. Yet, I experienced dramatic results:
a. I was more alert, focussed & ready for the day every morning.
b. My appetite & food choices were positively impacted; I simply wanted the healthiest food in good proportions (even while travelling, celebrating, and eating delicious new foods everyday).
c. The self reflection tasks actually saved my mood and cortisol levels (the stress hormone responsible for all kinds of malaise from weight gain, to hair loss, to cancer) on several occasions — an extremely stressful day turned into a major self development day.
d. I felt more graceful & in control of my body all day (even in the sickly heat of the tropics).
e. I felt lighter around my mid section immediately.
f. I now feel comfortable in bikini bottoms that were too small for me last week.
g. I was able to get into my size 2s (see last week’s try here).
h. I got my stiff size 0s up to almost cover my bum crack (see last week’s try here).
Size 2, WEEK 2
Size 0, WEEK 2
The Emotions System District (the second District in the 4 District course) is based on the Personal Power of self-care & self-love. The chapter is a potent means to meeting emotional issues preventing weight loss head on and to uncover, uproot, & heal issues like emotional eating, wearing weight as armour and storing emotional wounds & trauma as fat.
Excerpt from the course:
“It is from this emotional place that we decide whether it is ok to be a thin version of ourselves, or to puff up like a blowfish (out of fear we’ll look/seem weak). Not only do emotions get stored in fat, but unhealed emotional trauma oftentimes creates ‘hunger’ which, if not adequately ‘fed’, can be mistaken for physical need.“
Using the 4 practices outlined above (MIDIs, MODIs & RUMIS) creates the necessary space to grow self-love throughout the body. These methods strengthen the Personal Power of perfect body self-care making your ideal body and health a breeze.
Is self-care key to gaining and retaining ideal body composition? Rather, can focussing on the Personal Power of self-love result in measurable fat loss — regardless of the odds the fitness industry (and their doctrine of over-exercise & restrictive dieting) stacks against you?
Yes it absolutely does and can. Actually, this is the only way to make lasting healthy lifestyle changes and lose excess weight for good.
