Over the next 3 minutes I’m going to explain how to get your hunger signals working for you so you can feel more in control and aligned with your body and hunger
Which in turn
Can help with weight loss, blood sugar levels, overeating and health …
Ever eat a meal and think
“Why did I just eat all of that?”
You feel over full
And quite uncomfortable…
Maybe you’ve even looked down from your laptop and noticed your snack is gone and barely remembered eating it?
Well, science tells us why…
And how we override our natural hunger signals
Which can lead us to our hunger hormones..
Studies show say you’re given
Macaroni and cheese (delicious and often used in research)
You might start off really enjoying it
However, you’ll reach a stage where you’ll eventually get full of macaroni cheese …
But you’ll still have room for pudding.
Sounds familiar, right?
When people were given macaroni and cheese
But then offered some chips etc
Whilst eating the meal
People ate more macaroni and cheese
And it took them longer to feel full and satisfied.
There’s even more 🚀
❌ Listening to the radio, being on your phone and watching tv could also increase your food intake and impact how full you feel
you can flip all of this in your favour 😃😃
✅Variety can make you eat more.
Increasing the variety and quantity of veg in and around meals can increase the likelihood we eat more veg.
^^^ interesting study showed giving kids veg as a starter meant they are more veg as they weren’t competing with the pizza or pasta 😉 research in adults also shows that those who have a salad before a meal are less (they had vinegar on the salads too which can help blood sugar levels)
✅ add 10 chews to your mouthful today (super simple one)
Especially as it all happened so quickly that our other 19 month old daughter at the time was actually there in the corner of the room, drawing Peppa Pig (well trying to)
Completely oblivious to the whole situation…
Until she turns around, sees the new baby
It was literally that quick (huge contrast to the first)…
But safe to say, a few sleepless nights have happened since…
And NO one can prepare you for it…
When you come home with a little bundle of joy..
The moment you have been waiting for…
You never quite understood just how much it changes your life..
I mean, how can something so small have such an impact?
And -I’ll be honest – there was me before our first baby saying
“it’s just like having a dog, right? It will be fine”
^^ similar but not quite…dogs (especially Labradors don’t learn so quick haha)
No matter how hard it is sometimes though…
How tired you are…
How good it feels for your head to hit the pillow and your eyes to drift off…
(Even with my inability to wake up as fast as Mrs Fruci to the crying…)
That disrupted sleep is hard…
But we keep going..
Because we know this doesn’t last forever…
Fast forward a few years
And my sleep is BACK…
We have two amazing little miracles…
But isn’t it fascinating?
Just how much we are willing to do…
And push through…
As we know this is a special time..
That won’t last forever..
I can’t tell you how many times I have thought about quitting things…
Well it feels good to quit.
You get a buzz and a dopamine hit from it.
Simple because there are lots of positives to quitting.
You might get that 30 minutes back that you used to have to use to exercise.
You have no one chasing you up..
You feel pressure has gone.
It feels good initially.
You know, like when I would call in sick from a presentation (used to hate public speaking)…
But guess what?
As time goes on..
Things get worse.
We think that if we cover our eyes
Things will go away.
But the problem is just compounding in the background
And getting worse.
Which brings us to starting all over again…
Forgetting that even if you feel like you are behind..
Struggling to keep up?
IT IS EASIER TO KEEP UP THAN CATCH UP
^^^ read that again…
This emotional cycle of change might sound familiar to you:
Stage 1: Uninformed optimism → you know, when you start something new. You are motivated. Excited.
Stage 2: Informed pessimism –> you start to think ‘this is hard’…”I am not sure I can do this”…<<< bit like a few weeks in to parenthood…
Stage 3: Pit of despair –> you feel low….and look for the next shiny object to give you that UNINFORMED OPTIMISM again
And we are back to Stage 1 and we repeat AGAIN…
That is the yoyo dieting cycle..
We make it through to
Stage 4: Informed Optimism –> you accept where you are now. You have that self-awareness. Focus on progress not perfection and although it may seem slower, is actually FASTER because you don’t give up and end up back at Stage 1…
Stage 5: Success and fulfilment new habits are forming. You get a real reward and feeling of achievement …
I will be going over this in a bit more detail inside our September Reboot programme which is now open 🙂
Specifically for women 40+ who pretty much know what to do but need the accountability to do
So they can get fit, tone up and develop a better relationship with food…
If you’d like more info
Reply with ‘reboot’ and I’ll get you the details.
I’ll leave you with this…
Change is hard..
But at the same time it is the best thing in the world…
as Albert Einstein apparently said:
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Because when you think about things like this and remember that the chance of you being born and here today are something like 400 TRILLION TO ONE…
It makes you think:
Are we here just to ‘get through it’ or are we here to make a difference and enjoy it?
We’re taking on 15 women 40+ for our September Reboot challenge.
This can be done with us in-person in our private ladies only studios. Perfect for women in and around the Marlborough and Devizes areas.
Alternatively, you can do everything from home.
This Reboot programme is specific for September for those who have let things slip in the past months.
Whether it’s from going on holiday (or staycations) to bbqs, to going out for lots of dinners and drinks with friends…
This 8 week program is here to Reboot your fitness, increase your energy, and help you develop a better relationship with food…
We’ve been getting quite a few questions since my last email so I thought I’d answer some of the most common ones:
Q: “What if I haven’t exercised for ages?”
A: No problem, we’ve got you covered. If you’re a complete beginner, we’ll start you off slow, it is YOU vs YOU! If you have experience with exercise but it’s been a while, we’ll accommodate your current level of fitness.
Everyone is in the same boat. We don’t work with bodybuilders 🙂
Q “What’s included in the 8 weeks?”
A: In short, everything you need to transform your fitness and shape in the most easy and fun way. We cover your training, nutrition and coaching/accountability to ensure you get the results you want, using our 3F accountability system.
Q “What happens at the end of the Reboot”
A: At the end of the 8 weeks, you’ll have drastically improved your fitness and strength levels. Have a new found level of energy from the moment you wake up. Improved your overall mood and decreased stress levels, plus you’ll have toned and shaped up, and feel confident about your ability to stay on track and get back on track (no more beating yourself up)
