Eat Fat and Other Divine Weight Loss Tips
Ok, first I need to take a step backwards from weight loss tip #1. I am so quick to let the words flow from my fingertips onto the keyboard. Then, I have more thoughts... it's a wonderful cycle (no viscousness here!).
Weight loss is the process of re-balancing body weight, returning the percentage of adipose tissue (fat) to lean body tissue (muscles, bones, organs) back to a healthy ratio.
Weight loss is truly a mind, body, spirit exercise. When one approaches it just from the space of physical, "Oh, I need to lose weight from my physical body" and neglects to address the needs of the psyche and soul... weight loss is rarely successful over the long haul.
My intention, in offering up these tidbits of wisdom from my life, is to support you in your quest to balance body weight.
So... here comes tip # 2!
Stop deprivation. Invite pleasure into your life!
Reminder: Fat IS pleasure.
Fat is pleasure to your taste buds, to your body's satiation* signals, to your cellular health...
Learn more about healthy fat and learn to eat it.
Me... I love butter, obscene amounts of butter from grass fed animals!
*When your body feels satiated by being nourished with adequate fat and protein (from healthy, whole food choices, of course!) you avoid the "snacking on carbs between meals syndrome." Fat helps you give up your refined carb and sugar habits.
Eat well: nourish mind, body, and spirit with wholeness*. Love, Paula
