Plus more from our Till the Fat Lady Slimmers…

This week – Back from US and sugar cravings are up. Videos to Watch on Youtube. And Michele Hope fashionista plus Flora Mare’s adorable guy Axel Mara on B2U webchat! And the Monday Essay – time-lapse pics of the effects of addiction.

Oh dear. Going to the US is great, except for the food. So much more than in the UK, it has added sugar in the vast majority of foodstuffs. Even the bread tasted sweeter than it should. The rubbishy ‘vegetarian’ breakfast on the plane (thanks BA) was fruit juice, a cake (??@*&&!!) and a small thing of sweetened fruit cubes. Eurgh!! (no I didn’t eat it all up.) And lo and behold my tastes have already changed from just a week away. So I’m back on the wagon of getting myself off it again – all in the process of Freedom Eating of course. Will keep you informed. See the Monday Essay below for a whole array of videos which will help make it clear why high insulin levels from too much sugar just mean you get fatter. And more unhealthy. Watch them if you need a boost or a head start in your aim to Freedom Eat your way to being slim, if you’re like me they will help no end.

Bodyblading on the beach

BUT the other thing I did in LA was very beneficial to my health! I came back and as usual climbed the stairs – three flights – instead of using the lift at QVC. And realised it was easier than before I went! Now I’d done quite a lot of writing, and sat on my bum a lot during my week’s hol. BUT I’d done some good Bodyblading. So clearly it’s been helping make me able to cope better with physical exertion. Permahabits again right?!

The video on Marina Del Ray beach, of  Bruce and me Bodyblading has proved a bit of a hit too – and if you watch it, and it makes you want to do it more, cos it’s on a lovely beach, all well and good! The Super6 workout – the 6 one minute exercises on his ingenious invention - really do strengthen and tone your whole body not just your arms. This one has movement in between too. Here it is again if you missed it – it’s helping create those Permahabits – permanent habits that mean a little every day takes us in the right direction, continuously. Click here to watch it  And if you’d like to see pics of our get together in LA, go read my QVC blog from Friday.

 

TTFLS update

Several people I’ve talked to lately have said ‘you’ve written a weight loss book?!’ Well for those who haven’t got my semi-autobiographical title, updated for 2014, the link to the book *Till the Fat Lady Slims 2.0 – the ‘When’ Diet, is here – paperback or eBook!

Posted this week on Facebook, the reasons why some people LOVE following Freedom Eating as explained in Till the Fat Lady Slims – if you’ve not tried it yet, maybe this will inspire:

Emily: For me it was more about abandoning the word diet and learning to eat when my body told me it was hungry. It started with having a glass of water first, and waiting 10 minutes and if I still felt hungry eating then eating, but chewing slowly 30 times before swallowing. Also when I felt comfortably full stop eating and discard or box up for another time the leftovers - where beforehand I would have just made a big pasta bake and finished the whole plate and probably go back for seconds… people don't recognise me I say hello to them and they sort of look at you strange then I say its Emily and then it clicks and there amazed but the most important people to notice are family members and they do and when you receive lovely complements it gives you a big boost too … TTFLS is a book about common sense it helped me to re educate myself about why I over ate and helped me get emotionally and physically over my issues with food and I cant thank Debbie Flint enough for writing the original and the new versions.

Valerie: For me recognizing low fat meant high sugar. Also how sugar intake stimulates more sugar. 
Recognizing that weight watchers so-called ‘treats’ were just stimulating my appetite to want more !!!!! And the fructose - mmmm don t get me started on that one !!!! Yes lots of light bulb moments but the best was the realization that counting pro points doesn't give me the wellness my body needs. But Freedom Eating does… the support guides you how to recognise hunger at 6 and what our bodies need as nourishment . Whilst also recognising dehydration and importance of water. For me no more eating by the clock .

Sharon: Isn't it amazing that we were kind of programmed by the "industry" to believe that low fat meant "better for us?" And now with programmes on Youtube about the dangers of sugar and the proof of how detrimental it really is to our health, we can completely change our way of thinking? Till the Fat lady Slims has been amazing in giving us the reassurance to listen to what we want and actually hear what we really need! 

Heidi: the lightbulb moment for me was about eating when I'm 6 on the hunger scale and not when I 'should' i.e. set meal times. I now only eat 1 or 2 meals a day if that’s all I feel like I need. Quite liberating… Freedom eating is not a diet but is about listening to your body and giving it what it needs.

Jean T: Freedom Eating is knowing that you can have anything you want to eat, when you want to eat --- not following any diet regimes or diet advice (which is often conflicting ) --- learning to trust your OWN judgement and not cues from outer sources like books , tv, ads , fitness experts etc.. our own bodies tell us what they need. 

Marcella: That nothing is considered a 'sin' or 'forbidden' (unless you have an allergy/intolerance to it, of course  )...all things in moderation - just because it's on the plate, doesn't mean you 'have to' eat it if you feel you've had enough.

Sara: Just been and had lunch at a Toby carvery. Last time I went was about three months ago with same friend who I hadn't seen in that time. Didn't feel like breakfast in morning so didn't have anything so was starving. I've found that when I'm starving I don't eat as much and enjoy it more. Half way through my friends suddenly asked me how many pounds if lost as I'd lost a lot since she'd seen me. Was astounded. Told her I hadn't a clue and that I wasn't dieting but freedom eating and eating like a slim person. Ps. Mash, peas and Yorkshire were left on plate but that meant I had room for a small meringue low carb dessert”

 

It is indeed all about getting used to completely different habits around food, not a temporary ‘on a diet’ only to come ‘off a diet’ mentality. Permahabits, permahabits, permahabits!

BTW Ever wondered about the inspiration for TTFLS? That original book we sold on QVC in the late ‘90’s? Go here, to see it, by Vicky and Shawn - if you’re lucky you may get a used one for £0.01p!

THE MONDAY ESSAY

The Power of Addiction

 We bang on about getting off the stranglehold of sugar addiction often, here on Back to You. I certainly do in my book Till the Fat Lady Slims 2.0 – the ‘When’ Diet. In the updated version of my weight loss book I lay out clearly how important it is to shake free of fructose, a substance which does to the brain what cocaine does and according to some research, is seven times more addictive.

The way it interrupts your ability to accurately choose what your body really needs is that it makes you think your body is needing sugary foods, instead of ‘wanting’ them – there’s a difference. And because what your body wants is key to Freedom Eating, it’s vital to escape its clutches initially.

My chapters in TTFLS 2.0 give links to videos to watch on youtube since knowledge is king, and will help you make the right decisions to free yourself from being controlled by something outside yourself, by Big Food companies who are quite happy that you keep buying their products, creating problems in your body, and staying addicted, like a mouse or a rat in a treadmill. If you prefer to be the one in control of you, breaking free from addiction is crucial.

Several studies have proven fructose is addictive – big time. Fructose is concentrated fruit sugar – but it has no benefits in the body as it can only be metabolised in the liver, like with alcohol. All sorts of chain reactions happen to make you keep craving it once you have a little. And all sorts of chain reactions happen within the metabolic functions of the liver, for instance, a third of all the calories you eat from fructose are converted back into fat in your body – IRRESPECTIVE of how much you eat or how much exercise you do. Therefore all calories are NOT the same. BTW table sugar is sucrose, and is half fructose and half glucose. The body needs certain sugars, it doesn’t need fructose. If you eat it in fruit, the whole fruit is necessary as the fibre is the ‘antidote’ to help the body ‘deal with’ the effects of the fructose. Nature’s own antidote. BUT even some high sugar low fibre fruits eaten in excess are going to be fat-creating, addiction-creating and will foil your attempts at dieting. You may rethink a diet which ‘allows’ any amount of fruit. And your five a day? It shouldn’t be all fruit. Choose your fruit carefully – juice should not count – just the whole fruit – but google it so you are well-informed. And think carefully about what your body is telling you it ‘needs.’ I rarely ever ‘want’ fruit – as I have a lot of vegetables. For some reason pears are what I want if at all. But that’s just me. We’re all different. As I say – just research it.

ADDICTIONS

I just wanted you to look at a video of the effects of some drug addictions, just in case your own problems are not sugar-based. This may not be relevant to you, but it’s an eye-opening internet article on the time-lapse effects of certain addictions to the addicts looks.

Click here to see them all.

If you’ve ever felt a compulsion to eat sweets, cakes, ice creams, biscuits, sugar in coffee or tea, certain fruits to excess, puddings, chocolates, and just… cant… stop. You’re addicted. Get off it, and then Freedom Eating – and freedom in your own life – can truly begin in earnest. Give it a go, and begin by reading the chapter in my book, and watching those all important videos. Here are some of the links to get you started –

Watch these videos to find out the truth:

Sugar the Bitter Truth – Professor Robert Lustig’s famous Youtube sensation – an hour and a half of solid science, all the proof you’ll ever need for the cynics out there, that fructose is a chronic poison. If you ever hear anyone say ‘there aren’t enough studies,’ they just haven’t seen this. Go here

 Sugar – the elephant in the kitchen – his new 22 minute video kicking off appropriately with the topic of FREEDOM – the behaviour is caused by the biochemistry in the body – fix the biochemistry and you change the behaviour. Watch it now! More here

Fat burning simplified. And if you do fix the insulin problem, as he advises, then you can get in the fat burning zone – as Marlene Watson Tara explains in her excellent ‘fat burning simplified.’ If you eat sugary stuff, that makes your insulin kick in, you CANNOT be in the fat burning zone. Read it here.

 Is Sugar Toxic? – the Sixty minutes report – just 14 minutes long – Prof Lustig as well as two other experts with some scary facts about cancer and sugar. More here.

Toxic Sugar – an ABC Oz report – puts it in a nutshell – only 18 mins. Watch here

That Sugar Film – coming early 2015 from ‘down under’ – looks fascinating – info here.
