Another fitness myth that must die.

NO, you will not magically gain weight if you eat after 7pm. I don’t care if you’re eating fat, protein, carbohydrates,etc. This simply isn’t true.

Weight loss will always come down to being in an energy (calorie) deficit, period. Nothing crazy complicated about it folks.

Don’t be afraid to eat after 7pm. You won’t get fat provided you stay within your macros (carbs,protein,fat) but I can’t guarantee you won’t turn into a Gremlin.

Your past only has as much power as you give it

I don’t care what your past looks like, where you came from, what you did, or what someone said about you. If you want to change your life for the better you CAN.

You don’t have to become what was spoken over you. You’re not a loser, no good, worthless, shameful, etc. You are a child of the Most High God! All that matters is what He says about you.

It’s not easy to release all of that baggage you’ve been carrying around. It’s a process that takes TIME but if you are willing to do the work you can find freedom.

God is good

Matthew 17:20-21
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain, Remove from here to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Math was my MOUNTAIN. As you know I’ve been asking for prayer in regard to this and for a positive outcome. I believe that the enemy will place people in our path to try to block us from becoming who we are truly meant to be.

The Facts:

Insulin resistance is the main reason why it’s more challenging for you to lose weight with PCOS and generally.

About 80% of the women with PCOS have insulin resistance but then again if you’re overweight…

Chances are you already have an insulin resistance but without me going into a long complicated explanation of what insulin resistance is…

Are you getting enough FAT in your diet?

Despite being vilified for many years, dietary fats are one of the 3 main nutrients that your body needs to function properly. Their numerous health benefits include controlling blood levels of cholesterol and glucose, preventing the development of cancer, reducing your heart disease risk and supporting your vital organs (including your brain, your heart, your liver and your lungs). However, due to the popularity of low fat diets and the untrue assertion that dietary fat is automatically stored as body fat, many people choose to eliminate this macronutrient from their diet. Doing this can be extremely damaging to your health and in this article I will be discussing why with 14 of the negative symptoms of dietary fat deficiency.

Are you PASSIONATE about your life or are you merely EXISTING?

The older I get the more I truly realize what matters in life. It isn’t about acquiring more “things” or making more money. You can have all the “toys” and money in the world and still feel very empty, lonely, and unfulfilled.

The one thing that truly motivated me to change my life was my last “typical” job I had 9+ years ago. I worked in construction and would get up at 6am so I could be to work by 7am and get off at 6pm or 7pm that night. I would do this Monday through Friday and every other Saturday. The job paid well, offered insurance and provided security.

You are only as sick as the secrets that you keep.

I know many of you suffer in silence, bound by the secrets that you keep. The reality is we all have both a public and private life. We put on our best “face” to the outside and create our secret life to hide those aspects of ourselves that we are ashamed of. You may be feeling shame or think that you will no longer be accepted if you show this side of yourself. If you think about it we have been forced to hide certain parts of ourselves since childhood. It is either because of what was done to us, or we were told it was “bad” or we knew by how others responded to us that we had to disown this part of ourselves or face rejection.

Decrease body-fat and improve overall conditioning

For decreasing body-fat and truly maximizing your time spent in the gym I recommend high intensity circuit training. This is a fast and efficient way to lose body-fat and elicit aerobic and metabolic effects. Research shows that the benefits of circuit training can last as long as 72 hours…far longer than doing traditional cardio for fat loss.

My clients like metabolic workouts because of the shorter rest periods which means the workout is shorter and may actually be more beneficial then someone simply going through the motions for 60 minutes. You are able to get in and out of the gym in a relatively short amount of time.

Can I go a little deeper this morning? I hope you don’t mind.

Who are you behind your mask? Lets go a little deeper…

I have learned over the years that when we are truly authentic with those around us we in turn give them permission to be who they truly are.

Have you ever been around someone who you could tell was putting on a show? Maybe that person is you.

It is an uncomfortable feeling to always have to be “on” and try to be what you think the world wants you to be. In order to keep up this charade you can expect to miss out on your true purpose in life, be drained of your mental and physical energy, and be full of anger and resentment.

Renew your mind and change your life

I know that it is easy for those who have struggled with their weight for a long period of time to remain stuck in denial. We KNOW that we need to do something about our health but we tell ourselves, “It isn’t really THAT bad” but it really is. We know that God cares about our inner well-being but he also cares about our physical condition.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
