    This Is Taking 6 Years Off Your Life And It’s 100% Reservable ~ Dr. Morgan Nolte



    On today’s show, Dr. Nolte and I discuss the serious ramifications of uncontrolled blood insulin levels and insulin resistance. 

    Dr. Morgan Nolte is a board-certified clinical specialist in geriatric physical therapy. Dr. Nolte’s expertise in tackling insulin resistance through scientifically backed health and wellness education has informed millions worldwide.

    Insulin resistance is frequently a silent contributor to a number of widespread chronic health conditions, including Alzheimer’s, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. In fact, a startling 88% of adults experience some degree of insulin resistance. The condition is both pervasive yet easy to miss, making it that much more critical a topic to address. Dr. Morgan can discuss why changes to your listeners’ diet, lifestyle, and mindset are key to reversing the condition, and why the end goal isn’t simply weight loss, but rather body recomposition and long-term behavior change.

    If you love the show, it would mean the world to me if you'd like it, share it, and review it. That's the only way I can help more people and continue to fulfill my mission of helping others overcome pain and start living a life of peaceful passion.

    Why We Overeat and How To Correct It: 

    Overeating, or consuming more food than the body needs for energy, can occur for various negative reasons. Here are five common ones:

    #1 Emotional Eating: Many people turn to food to cope with emotions such as stress, anxiety, sadness, or boredom. They use food as a source of comfort or distraction, even when they're not physically hungry.

    #2 Mindless Eating: Eating without paying attention to hunger cues or the amount of food consumed can lead to overeating. Mindless eating often occurs when people eat in front of the TV, while working, or while engaging in other activities, which can result in consuming more calories than necessary.

    #3 External Cues: Environmental factors such as the sight or smell of food, social gatherings, advertising, and food availability can trigger overeating even when individuals are not hungry. These external cues can stimulate appetite and lead to eating beyond the body's actual needs.

    #4 Restrictive Dieting: Following overly restrictive diets or strict food rules can sometimes backfire, leading to episodes of overeating or binge eating. When certain foods are labeled as "off-limits" or forbidden, individuals may develop a preoccupation with those foods and ultimately overeat when they're available.

    #5 Habitual Patterns: Overeating can become a habitual behavior, especially if individuals are accustomed to large portion sizes or frequent snacking. Eating out of habit rather than genuine hunger can lead to consuming excess calories over time.

    These negative reasons for overeating often contribute to weight gain and can have adverse effects on physical and emotional well-being. Developing mindfulness around eating habits, addressing emotional triggers, and fostering a balanced approach to food can help mitigate overeating tendencies.

    Three effective strategies to help overcome overeating:

    #1 Mindful Eating: Practicing mindful eating involves paying full attention to the eating experience, including the sensations of hunger and fullness, the taste and texture of food, and the emotions and thoughts associated with eating. By slowing down and being present during meals, individuals can become more aware of their body's hunger and satiety signals, which can help prevent overeating. Some tips for mindful eating include:

    *Eating slowly and savoring each bite.

    *Paying attention to physical hunger cues before and during meals.

    *Recognizing the difference between physical hunger and emotional or environmental triggers for eating.

    *Minimizing distractions while eating, such as television or electronic devices.

    *Listening to the body's signals of fullness and stopping eating when satisfied, even if there's food left on the plate.

    #2 Portion Control: Monitoring portion sizes can be an effective strategy for preventing overeating. Portion control involves being mindful of serving sizes and choosing appropriate portions ba

    Do You Really Need Motivation? 



    In this episode of The Overweight Mind, I discuss all things motivation. What is motivation (the two types) ~ Is it really? Is it necessary for success? How can you create it when it’s gone? 



    What is Motivation and Do We Really Need It

    Motivation refers to the driving force behind our actions, desires, and behaviors. It is the internal or external factor that stimulates us to pursue a particular goal, task, or outcome. Motivation is what energizes us, directs our behavior, and sustains our efforts over time.

    There are two main types of motivation:

    Intrinsic motivation: This type of motivation comes from within oneself. It involves engaging in an activity because it is inherently rewarding, enjoyable, or fulfilling. Examples of intrinsic motivation include pursuing a hobby because it brings personal satisfaction or studying a subject out of genuine interest.

    Extrinsic motivation: Extrinsic motivation, on the other hand, comes from external factors such as rewards, punishments, or social pressures. It involves engaging in an activity to earn a reward or avoid a negative consequence. Examples of extrinsic motivation include studying to earn good grades, working to receive a paycheck, or exercising to win a competition.

    Motivation can be influenced by various factors, including:

    *Personal goals and values

    *Expectations of success or failure

    *Past experiences and achievements

    *Social and cultural norms

    *Environmental factors

    *Emotional states, such as excitement, fear, or enthusiasm

    Why we lose motivation and how to get it back: 

    Understanding motivation is essential for achieving personal and professional goals, as it plays a crucial role in determining our persistence, effort, and overall performance in pursuing desired outcomes.

    Losing motivation can happen for various reasons, including burnout, lack of clear goals, feeling overwhelmed, or experiencing setbacks. 

    5 steps to help you regain motivation:

    #1 Reflect on your goals ~ Why did you start?: Take some time to reassess your short-term and long-term goals. Are they still meaningful to you? Are they achievable? Adjust your goals to align with your current circumstances and aspirations if necessary.

    #2 Break tasks into smaller steps ~ Rocks vs Boulder: Feeling overwhelmed can lead to a loss of motivation. Break down your tasks into smaller, manageable steps. This makes them feel less daunting and allows you to make progress incrementally, which can boost your motivation as you see yourself moving forward.

    #3 Find inspiration ~ manufacture urgency: Seek out sources of inspiration that resonate with you. This could be reading books, watching motivational videos, listening to podcasts, or talking to mentors or peers who inspire you. Surround yourself with positivity and motivation to reignite your own enthusiasm.

    #4 Create a supportive environment. Who’s influencing you? Evaluate your environment and identify any factors that may be contributing to yo

    What Kind Of Leader Are You? Coach Lewis Caralla



    In this episode of The Overweight Mind, Coach Lewis Caralla and I discuss leadership, overcoming adversity, and all things success. 



    My favorite Coach Caralla quote is: “Lazy people do a little work and think they should be winning, but winners work as hard as possible and still worry that they are lazy.”



    If you’re not already following him on Instagram, go do it now: @lewcaralla 



    Coach Caralla’s New Book is called: Fire Lighters 365: Daily Motivational Messages For Coaches, Athletes, and Leaders



    Buy the book at Amazon: Fire Lighter 365



    This book, which consists of 365 Daily Motivational messages for Coaches, Athletes, and Leaders, is available on Amazon now.



    Ever since I started coaching, my mission has been to make a difference in people’s lives.



    As a strength coach, I spend more time with the players year-round than the other coaches do. Therefore, I’ve always given the players a message of the day after every lift or run. I’ve collected the most powerful and impactful ones here.



    These messages cover many topics. They discuss perspective, toughness, resilience, setbacks, belief, frustration, inspiration, determination, gratitude, humility, work ethic, and leadership, to name a few.



    As a coach, I truly believe that you're wasting your platform if you’re not pouring your heart into your players. As a leader, if you don’t develop the people around you, they won’t be following you for long.



    I’ll tell you now what I tell my players: Not every message will hit you the same. But one might change your life.



    This book aims to provide a timeless guide for coaches, athletes, and leaders everywhere with a message of the day for an entire year.



    If you love the show, it would mean the world to me if you'd like it, share it, and review it. That's the only way I can help more people and continue to fulfill my mission of helping others overcome pain and start living a life of peaceful passion.

He is absolutely right it starts in the brain, the foods these days have made us addicts to chemicals. The fast food knows the salt, sugar. and fat are killing us and they don’t care. We need to take our health into our own hands, or we will get sick.
