Is Everybody excited for the New Year and to start it off right?
I know I am!!
My commitment for the new year is to help everyone have a happier, healthier, and less stressful year. I will help with that through education, and with doTerra essential oils by my side!
Why essential oils? What does that have to do with it?
Well...................... in the US, 4.5 Trillion dollars is spent on health care yearly?
Are we any healthier because of it?
a resounding NO!
Do you want less expensive, safer, quicker and more effective Health Care?
and better yet, to learn self care, to just keep yourself healthier?
I know most people agree that healthier habits, and a healthier, less stressful lifestyle lead to better all around health and well being. So, that is why I will also be educating on oils, as well as other things.
And also, some people already use oils....I mean, they are everywhere. But what makes them different? Why are some actually healthy, where some are just smell good, but are toxic.
I believe that that is actually part of the overall problem, I mean, not just with oils, but with everything we use and consume. There is organic, so, we think everything organic is healthy, but believe it or not, I have actually seen organic margarine. Now margarine is not healthy no matter what label you put on it. Just because its an oil, and it smells good, does not mean it's not toxic. So I would like to clear up the differences for you this year between the Healthy, and how we are deceived into thinking something is healthy.
Also, from January 21-25, doTerra is hosting
MASTER YOUR METABOLISM
Now I am sure most people will be excited to learn more about that, so for more info, and also for tips and education on that, please like my FACEBOOK page here.
But for now, as promised, a few tips for starting the year off right!
BUILD HEALTHY HABITS
1. Consume a diet based on consumption of whole foods. The foundation of almost any healthy goal begins with proper nutrition. The more a food is externally processed, the less it needs to be internally processed to be utilized by the body. Whole foods are more nutrient dense, less energy dense, contain higher amounts of fiber, and take longer to be processed. Skip the bag and box aisles and stick to the perimeter of the grocery store.
2. Don’t forget your protein and fats. Protein and fat require more time to breakdown into their usable parts than do carbohydrates. A recent study in Cell Press mapped out the signals between your gut and your brain, finding that protein increases satiety through modulating mu-opioid receptors. These receptors regulate brain-gut communication. When combined with primarily carbohydrate meals, dietary fat has been shown to slow digestion in the small intestine.
3. Drink more water. Your gastric mechanoreceptors can’t differentiate between food and water, they only respond to the volume of the substance passing through. Water quickly passes through without need of processing, but still can temporarily trick your body into thinking it is full. If you have hunger pangs but have already met your energy needs for the day, try a glass ofwater first.
4. Utilize sensory cues. Smell your food before putting it in your mouth, use a smaller plate, chew your food for a while before swallowing to maximize the oral sensation —all of these small things prolong the cephalic stage and subconsciously increase food satisfaction.
5. Experiment with meal timing and frequency. Contrary to conventional belief, studies have demonstrated that skipping breakfast has no negative effects on satiety, and may result in a reduction in caloric intake. Intermittent fasting—cycling between extended periods of fasting and shorter periods of feeding—has been gaining popularity and there is plenty of scientific research to back up its efficacy. Experimenting with meal timing and frequency can help you find the meal regimen that works best for you
