Cortisol not welcomed here!

When we are under stress, our bodies product cortisol, which tends to deposit fat in the gut.  By reducing the physical effects of stress, we can release weight, or not put it on to begin with.  Two very effective products from Young Living are:

Stress Away:  This unique blend of vanilla, lime, copaiba, and other pure essential oils relieves daily stress, encourages relaxation, and reduces nervous tension.   Apply generously to wrists, temples, neck, or any desired area as needed.


 

Life 5: contains 5 of the most health-promoting and viable probiotic strains ever combined in a single capsule.  Three are considered “super strains” for their ability to not only adhere and out colonize harmful bacteria in the intestines, but to also promote and improve the adherence of other friendly bacteria as well.  These “super strains” boost immunity, improve nutrient absorption and relieve bowel distress.  It is even safe for children and proven that giving probiotic bacteria to children may actually help “prevent allergic disease.”

Discounted price paid for emotional eating

Not on Phase One, but under stress, more than usual, right now, so Tom has been drinking NuvoGene Tea AND has been able to hold his weight and slightly even lose while not being able to resist the temptations to overeat, especially late at night.  He loves the flavor, enjoys drinking it, not just chugging it down.  Being human, coping as best he can, the NuvoGene Tea has allowed him to burn the fat he needs and not pay too high a price for succumbing to emotional eating.

This product is able to target the gene linked to obesity, a factor that Dr. Simeons mentioned in his research.  We still need Phase One as the hypothalamus needs to be reprogrammed to properly regulate fat.  Testimonies about the NuvoGene Tea offer varieties of fat burning successes and reinforce that it is abnormal fat that is burned and inches being lost.

Respite for the Phase One slip ups

Not that I am saying you do.  But IF you have cheated on Phase One, you probably put back on the fat you worked so hard to burn, and probably put it on way quicker than it came back off.

We KNOW that Phase One is challenging.  Some people cheat, some people don’t.  Some people can resist temptation, some people can’t.  Some people have an accommodating schedule and some people have business luncheons and family parties and inflexible date books.  Up until now, we have likened this program to God:  forgiving and merciful but also just.  If you cheat, you may not release weight and may even gain, but if you get right back on the proven protocol, you immediately begin to release again.  Well, we still liken it to God, as we have been blessed with some tools that make mercy even more evident than before.

Enter Boresha.  Tom and I were introduced to these products a month ago and have been researching and experimenting on your behalf, as your beloved guinea pigs. These are the results we have found so far and are so excited, we have to share them!  In a nut shell, drinking a NuvoGene Tea by Boresha for each meal that I cheat, slows down weight gain, sometimes negates it and can even allow a little fat burning, even with a slip up, or conscious cheat.

I (Vicki) have been on the drops for the last month, my 7th or 8th cycle.  I did not cheat at all on my first cycle. Just once in my second cycle and I cannot tell you after that.  I can tell you that I have struggled this cycle.  Over and over, however, I started drinking a NuvoGene Tea when I cheated and some days, I ONLY gained a little, like .5 or 1lb, which I normally would have gained 4 lbs overnight. WOW.  I even had days that I still released weight even when I cheated a tiny bit. I also tried the Bskinny Latte and dropped 3 lbs overnight on day 32!  Which we know that after about 29 days, weight release slows down. I also discovered that I am drinking less diet pop as the NuvoGene Tea is tropical fruit flavored and very delicious.  And it is extending the weight release from my usual 28 days to 40!

So here is the TeamDau Wellness Phase One/Boresha protocol:  Take your drops every morning, but IF you cheat, not that I am advocating it or anything… drink a NuvoGene Tea, Bskinny Latte or Bskinny Coffee once or twice day.  Continue drinking your appropriate amount of water for Phase One. Do not take your drops after you have cheated. So you may only be taking drops once a day on days that you cheated.

Here’s the other thing that is wonderful.  The NuvoGene Tea targets the gene that is linked to obesity.  Remember that Dr. Simeon’s talked about obesity being an inherited disorder?  The NuvoGene Tea addresses and targets the root problem.  And we are burning the abnormal fat.

Why do we need Phase One at all then?  Because the hypothalamus needs to be reprogrammed!  Only the HCG drops and phase one protocol have been proven to do that.

If you would like to sample the NuvoGene Tea, come to our Busting the Weight Barrier Workshop next Tuesday.  To order directly, visit the website or call us with any questions.  630-745-1120.

Eight is the optimum

Kids?  Glasses of water?  How about hours of rest EACH NIGHT- not per week!  Do you know how important sleep is?  Experts agree that we need a minimum of 6 hours a night, with 8-10 hours being optimum.  Just how important is sleep?  and what are the effects of losing it?  Check out the article  from the American Psychological Association of Why Sleep is Important.

We are so very grateful for the plethora, you like that word, plethora?  We are so very grateful for the plethora of resources at our fingertips to combat our lack of quality sleep.

  • My favorite Young Living Essential Oil is Peace & Calming.   I put a drop on the bottoms of my feet and even on my chest or ears every night.  LOVE the blend of orange, tangerine, patchouli and ylang ylang and blue tansy
  • If my brain won’t shut down, I rub Tranquil Roll-on right on my temples.  If I run it down my jaw as well, I get the added benefit of not clenching my teeth in the night- Double bonus!
  • We keep our cell phones and any electronic equipment, except our clock radio, out of our bedroom.  The electromagnetic energy that is emitted from those devices has a negative effect on our systems and to be exposed to that all night long is not a good idea.
  • Releasing 90 lbs for me and 49 for Tom

    Releasing 49 pounds

    accounts for less snoring and better night’s sleep that is for sure.

  • Can’t wait to get the Nikken sleep system.Plan to start out with the eye mask  but then we want to invest in the mattress topper, pillows and comforters. I got a 5 minute Japanese energy treatment which mimics the effects of a full night’s sleep on the sleep system and felt the positive effects on my body for 2 days following the brief treatment!!

Probiotic, big deal?

Why is a probiotic such a big deal in Phase One? Well, most members are releasing 1/2 lb. to 1 lb. of fat per day which translates into 2 to 4 sticks of butter per day, if you can visualize that. Toxins are stored in fat.  When we burn the abnormal, locked away fat, those toxins are released into our system.  Drinking plenty of water help flush out the toxins, but those that enter our digestive track need to be processed.  Toxins may be in the form of bad bacteria and we need good bacteria to fight the bad.  If the bad bacteria, or toxins are not combated in our gut, they can manifest into inflammation and disease like stomach ulcers, gastric cancer, candida, hormone disruption, chronic fatigue, and gastro-intestinal issues like constipation and diarrhea.  A certain virus in our gut has even been linked to obesity, turning normal cells into fat cells.   Like we need anymore of those to be multiplying.  Negative bacteria has long-term consequences and proper microbial balance is imperative.   Young Living’s Life 5 Probiotic contains 5 of the most health-promoting and viable probiotic strains ever combined in a single capsule.  Three are considered “super strains” for their ability to not only adhere and out colonize harmful bacteria in the intestines, but to also promote and improve the adherence of other friendly bacteria as well.  These “super strains” boost immunity, improve nutrient absorption and relieve bowel distress.  It is even safe for kids and proven that giving probiotic bacteria to children may actually help “prevent allergic disease.”  Give it a try for a month, and let us know how you feel.

Speed Eating

Busy, busy, busy.  On the go.  Squeeze one more thing in.  Oh, shoot, I need to eat first, or I haven’t all day and I am starving but don’t have the time to sit down and eat.  Grab and go.  Shove it in, shove it down.  Did I even taste a bite of it?  I read a part of a book once, “The Slow Down Diet.”  The concepts made sense, but I didn’t finish the book and implement the ideas ’cause I didn’t have the time…

Shoveling the food down not only denies us the sensual pleasure of the tastes and textures of the food we are eating, but prevents us from digesting our food properly, if we have chewed it into halfway digestible pieces to begin with.  Poorly digested food manifests into bad bacteria in our gut and can lead to inflammation and disease.  It is kept at bay by good bacteria.  If it is not, it can cause stomach ulcers, gastric cancer, candida, hormone disruption, chronic fatigue, gastro-intestinal issues like constipation and diarrhea.  A certain virus in our gut has even been linked to obesity, turning normal cells into fat cells.   Like we need anymore of those to be multiplying.  Negative bacteria has long-term consequences and proper microbial balance is imperative.  Enter Young Living’s Life 5 Probiotic. It contains 5 of the most health-promoting and viable probiotic strains ever combined in a single capsule.  Three are considered “super strains” for their ability to not only adhere and out colonize harmful bacteria in the intestines, but to also promote and improve the stickiness of other friendly bacteria as well.  These “super strains” boost immunity, improve nutrient absorption and relieve bowel distress.  It is even safe for kids and proven that giving probiotic bacteria to children may actually help “prevent allergic disease.”    So, slow it down, chew it up and take a Life 5 before you go to bed.

Transitioning from Phase One to Phase Two

After you’ve released fat in Phase One, it can be a relief or even scary to move into Phase Two. While the food choices may be greater, many of our members “freak out” a bit with their new freedom. “I don’t want to go back to my old habits, but I am afraid with all the food choices.” “I don’t want to put any of the weight back on! How do I eat now?”

Take a deep breath, smile and believe that this is another step on your journey to your ideal created weight.
Keep similar portions in Phase Two as you did in Phase One. Your plate should be filled similarly, but with a greater variety of food.
-Make the recipes in our Fresh, Full & Free Cookbook but use the Phase Two modifications. Enjoy cheese, nuts, other meats and all the fruit and vegetable varieties.
-Pay attention to your hunger and fullness. If you undereat at a meal, you will be hungry sooner than if you overate. By consuming the drops in Phase One, your hypothalamus is being reprogrammed to function normally allowing proper fat regulation. You eat fuel, you burn fuel.

-Use the Steak and Apple Tool if you gain more than 2 lbs of weight gain during Phase Two or Phase Three.  Refer to your Phase Two overview sheet that you got in your Packet.

You are on your way to making great choices for a lifetime of enjoying your ideal created weight.

Strategies for drinking all that water your body needs

Though there are many theories, in the effort to be simple, we advise the members on our TeamDau Wellness Weight Release Program to drink half of their body weight, in ounces, of water each day. Most experts agree that to up to 70 percent of our body is water. Muscle is made up of about 75 percent water. Fat is made up of about 50 percent water and bones, too, are about 50 percent water.The water we drink helps hydrate our bodies and flush toxins out of our systems that have been previously locked away in the abnormal fat. Here are some tried and proven strategies that other members have reported to work for them.

-Water at room temperature is easier to drink
-Space your portions out throughout the day
-Set little goals to drink a certain amount of water by a certain time. For example, drink one portion (8 oz or 16 oz) before you leave the house. Drink another portion on the way to work or school. Drink another portion before lunch. Drink another portion before you leave for home, etc.
-Fill a jug/container with the amount of water you need to drink each day and work at it all day long. When the jug is empty, you drank your water for the day.
-Keep a tally of how much water you are drinking, one hash mark per 8 or 16 oz portion, knowing how many hash marks you need to get your water allowance each day.
-Try to finish drinking your water before 7 or 8pm so you are not up all night “peeing out the fat.”

A thought that our members find somewhat comforting is the more weight you release on our program, the less water you’ll need to drink!

How much water should I be drinking?

Many, many studies have been done about how much water to drink each day. How much do you weigh? How much do you urinate? How much do you sweat? Where do you live? In an effort to be thorough, maybe the experts have made it too confusing. Not to over simplify, but we tell the members of our TeamDau Wellness Weight Release Program to drink half of their body weight in ounces, of water, per day. As they release weight, they drink less water. You cannot count coffee or pop as water and a few of our members add Young Living Essential Oils of Lemon or Tangerine for a delicious healthy alternative or some add a touch of Crystal light to their water bottle. Water is a great vehicle to move the toxins through the system as our members are releasing 1/2 lb to 1 lb of fat each day in Phase One. With each frequent trip to the bathroom, we encourage them to smile and say: I’m peeing out the fat :-)
