    10. How Intermittent Fasting Works For Weight Loss | Dr. Ian Smith

    10. How Intermittent Fasting Works For Weight Loss | Dr. Ian Smith

    Dr. Ian Smith is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Clean and Lean, Clean 20, Super Shred, and Blast The Sugar Out. He is a graduate of Harvard, Columbia, and the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine.He has personally helped me with my weight loss struggle many years ago. After doing a lot of research, he has been one of those that was instrumental to my weight loss of 30lbs. for six years now.In this episode we’ll help you understand how your body reacts and how your decisions to these triggers can affect your health and weight loss. Dr. Ian will also discuss and provide great analogies to understand hunger and cravings, and how to get going with Intermittent Fasting.   [5:11] Your body floods your brain with dopamine… It tells your body that you like this and it increases the memory of what it was that caused the pleasure.    [5:40] When you see a chocolate cake, smell it or you think about it, then your body starts releasing that dopamine again. Your body needs to respond to this trigger, to go get the reward.   [6:20] Hunger is like your oil light. When you’re low on oil, your oil light comes on. No matter how many times you turn your car on or off, the oil light is gonna come back on until you give it oil.     [6:35] Cravings are like your Bluetooth. When you get into your car and the dashboard says, do you want to connect your Bluetooth?  If you don’t do anything at all, eventually that prompt is gonna go away.   [7:55] How we carry ourselves externally may have nothing to do with what’s going on internally.     [8:19] Weight loss is a journey. For many, it’s a battle.   [8:46] Sometimes when we think it’s not gonna happen, it comes to vision that it doesn’t happen.   [15:45] The reason why intermittent fasting works, one of the reasons is because it’s simple energy management.   [16:13] Your body prefers to have the energy for food. But if you don’t have any food energy available, then your body will go into your fat source and release that fat. Release it in an energy form that can be used by your body.   [16:30] Intermittent fasting is all about fat burning.   [16:41] The critical thing about intermittent fasting is that you have to be consistent.   [17:30] You got to stick to your windows.    [18:22] You can see results in the first couple of weeks. Some people make it a way of eating.   [19:26] People have defined ways to release their stress in a positive way.   [19:33] Stress is a normal part of living. The question is how do you handle the stress?   [19:44] That may temporary relieve the emotional stress that you’re under currently but it’s not a good long term solution.   [20:16] There are all kinds of ways that we can deal with the stress without turning into that high-calorie food that have no nutritional value.   [20:35] Take some time to think of more productive ways. Not only can you release the stress in a productive way, but you also have something accomplished.   [21:03] I think the most common mistake is that some people have unrealistic goals.   [24:43] I don’t want to wake up one day and be seventy years old and thinking what if I had done this, what if I had done that. Links   Dr. Ian Smith Instagram   Dr. Ian Smith Website For more healthy living content daily, connect with me on social media Instagram: www.instagram.com/trudyestone/Facebook: www.facebook.com/trudyestoneWhat type of dieter are you?

    9. Addicted to sugar and junk food? Hyperpalatable foods and how they wreck your weight loss

    9. Addicted to sugar and junk food? Hyperpalatable foods and how they wreck your weight loss

    Who doesn’t like sugar, right? Studies show that an average American consumes over 150lbs. in a year or 6 cups of sugar in one week.If you’ve ever wondered why this is happening, listen in as I share with you what the difference between palatable and hyper-palatable is, and what makes you crave certain foods like pizza, pastries, ice cream, and chocolate.Technology plays a big factor especially in today’s food choices but it’s not something you can’t do something about. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Once you understand how your food is processed, you’ll discover how little steps can help you closer to your weight loss goals. [2:49] Food scientists hi-jack your taste buds by actually calculating the bliss point of sugary foods and beverages so that you get hooked.[4:33] Science of food addiction is clearer now, than ever before. [5:15] When this pleasure sensor is activated, it makes us feel good. It actually drives out to seek out more of that feeling.[9:26] Research indicates that chocolate is the most frequently craved food among women.   [10:08] That’s a habit-forming drug called, Theobromine. It’s a mild stimulant on its own. But when added it’s added to something that’s already highly addictive like chocolate, it puts many of us over the edge.  [10:15] This is why I’m very particular as to where I purchase my chocolate from.[11:55] Our current food system is less than a century old and not nearly enough time for humans to genetically adapt to the radical changes that occurred. [12:10] Many researchers believe that this evolutionary mismatch is why we suffer from a high rate of lifestyle-related disorders such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.  [13:10] Rather than getting fat from meat and whole foods, dairy, and nuts, we now get them mechanically from oils that are cheap and convenient.[13:31] Which one is the enemy? Is it too much sugar or too much fat?[14:08] Technology has allowed us to create foods that are far more seductive than those that occur in nature.[14:25] It was just an unfortunate side effect of the race to make money.[14:36] About $8.8B was spent on ads for unhealthiest offerings.[16:18] How can we fight this instinctive force that makes us eat too much? [17:45] They feel like they don’t have enough will power. The key is to control your food cues in your personal environment.[18:55] Try to avoid foods that have this combination.[21:34} Put those healthy foods within reach. Links from today’s episode:Visit the show notes here for more: trudyestone.com/9For more healthy living content daily, connect with me on social media Instagram: www.instagram.com/trudyestone/Facebook: www.facebook.com/trudyestoneWhat type of dieter are you?

    8. Why You’ve Failed at Dieting and What to Do Instead

    8. Why You’ve Failed at Dieting and What to Do Instead

    I’m sure you’re just like me who’s been through numerous diet attempts but end up being a “failure” at it. Trust me, it took years to finally get myself into sustaining a healthy lifestyle.A number of us have failed in our diets and seem to be discouraged about our efforts. But it’s not exactly the food that’s weighing us down initially, it’s the negative self-talk. Negative self-talk is the inner voice in your mind that repeats a subtle yet demeaning running commentary. “Neurons that fire together, wire together.”  I’ll guide you through on how to become successful in losing weight and maintaining it. Turn your thoughts into a habit and get brain plasticity in action.   [3:40] Life is images of the mind expressed. Without images, there is no expression.   [4:41] I wanted to feel confident in my body and rocking a bikini. It wasn’t about being skinny or being a certain size. It was about being confident and feeling confident.   [5:15]  Understanding why all of your choices with food are built on your identity as an eater. What does your identity say about you? Could your identity be holding you back from your health goals?   [5:36] To change your behaviour, and your health for good, you need to start believing new things about yourself. Your current habits, especially the bad ones, are how you manifest your identity.    [5:57] The more that you repeat that behaviour, the more you reinforce the personality associated with that behaviour.   [6:20] You can change your identity in two steps.   [7:45] Start doing even one small thing that will move you into the direction of your goals in becoming that person that you want to be.   [10:11] You’re not paying attention to your negative self-talk.    [12:01] It will be hard to change your habits if you never change the underlying beliefs that led to your past behaviours.    [15:15] Why popular diet programs don’t work for lasting weight loss... Very few people experience sustained weight loss with that method.    [15:55] It’s also equally important to avoid eating too little or starving yourself because that can actually cause you to gain weight. When you cut calories, your body rebels by increasing your hunger and slowing down your metabolism.   [17:39] The kind of calories you consume have a big impact on the weight you gain. Different types of food are metabolized in different ways.   [18:14] What information are you giving your body by the foods that you’re eating?   [18:25] The foods that I ate, and the tactics that I used became a lifestyle. Along the way, I built healthier habits.   [19:14] The best part about the way I lost weight was that I never felt deprived or hungry. I actually enjoyed all the food I was eating.   [19:39] Guilt and stress will do more harm to your body than that chocolate cake ever will. [20:15] Take ownership about that decision you made and just move on. No self-loathing. Don’t think about it for the rest of the day and get paralyzed with guilt. [20:38] A healthy lifestyle isn’t about beating yourself up when you give in to your favourite food. It’s about finding balance.LinksVisit the show notes here for more: trudyestone.com/8For more healthy living content daily, connect with me on social media Instagram: www.instagram.com/trudyestone/Facebook: www.facebook.com/trudyestoneWhat type of dieter are you?
