Simon Edwards explains the concept below.

“What are the Benefits of the Low-carb Diet?

Are you one of those who hate dieting? Well, you are not alone, almost all of us hate the deprivation from food that dieting brings to us. Aside from the fact that our parents raise us to believe that food intake is necessary to keep us energetic, especially carbohydrates.

Potatoes and breads are the essential members of our diet from morning, noon and night. Therefore, we resent the idea that carbohydrates are not good for us.

However, your thinking might change upon reading the low-carb diet overview. In the lower-carb diet overview, you will learn that energy does not come from carbohydrates alone.

Low-carbohydrate diet overview will also tell you that good fats convert to energy

much like carbohydrates, as we know it to be. Lower-carb diet overview will likewise tell you about the recommended carbohydrates like whole grain, fruits and vegetables.

However, you should minimize intake of carbohydrates to as low as 10% of your total calorie intake. If you can maintain your consumption of carbohydrates to as low as 10% of your calorie intake, you should eat more fats and moderate protein.

Then, the low-carbohydrate diet overview will be the best tool to compliment your weight loss regimen and avoid jumping on the obese bandwagon.”

The Sustainable Weight Loss Diet

Simon continues to explain:

“The lower-carb diet overview will explain how you can best manage your weight. In contrast with the belief that carbohydrates are necessary to build your energy profile, fat may replace carbohydrates in this arena.

You will also learn from the low-carb diet overview that it is the best diet for obese individuals.

Diabetics may also use the low-carbohydrate diet overview to combat the cause of obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, hypoglycemia and type II diabetes because studies show that lower-carb diet attacks the condition called hyperinsulinemia.

Hyperinsulinemia is a condition where insulin levels in the blood are elevated.

It may also be helpful knowledge you will get from low-carb diet overview is the advantages one will get from low-carbohydrate diet. Sustained weight loss is one advantage of lower-carb diet.

Another advantage you will learn from low-carb diet overview and low-card dieting is stable blood sugar, this is specifically important for diabetics and those people prone to diabetes.

If you have a relative who is a diabetic, then you are one of those people prone to diabetes. Low cholesterol level is also an advantage of low-carb dieting.

Some low-card dieters also report being more energetic than their counterparts who are not dieting.”

Recommended Carbohydrate Intake Per Day

“Finally, here are some basic guidelines you will get from the low-carb diet

overview. You should limit your carbohydrates intake to 10% or less of your total calorie intake.

You will also find the list of allowed foods, you will also find the list of foods to avoid and foods with hidden sugar in the low-carbohydrate diet overview.

Avoiding food containing sugar and white flour is also part of the lower carb diet. Avoiding caffeine and drinking lots of clean and clear water also help in the dieting process.

Taking fiber supplements and vitamin will help during the initial stage of low-carb dieting, you will understand this need better upon reading the low-carb diet overview.

Low-carbohydrate dieting is good for everyone who wants to loose weight, so try it to experience a trim lifestyle. However, when you finally decide to try it, after reading the lower-carb diet overview, visit your health care professional just to be sure that low-carb dieting is really, what you need.

Saturated Fats Facts

 Saturated Fats Facts

I noticed this Los Angeles Times article – about saturated fats facts. Here is a key part of it, showing how there has been a long term deception of consumers regarding saturated fat nutrition facts.

I’m also sharing an article here about High Fructose Corn Syrup and liver damage.

These are important topics if you’re looking for something like the No Nonsense Ted diet system. CLICK HERE to learn about it now.


Cutting out sugars and carbs, and getting meal plans and recipes full of nourishing foods and healthy fats is the way to escape obesity and restore damaged metabolism.

Emphases are mine, in both articles.

Saturated Fat Nutrition Facts

Saturated Fat Won’t Kill You

Somewhere between 10,000 and 53,000 people were tested on diets where saturated fats were replaced by unsaturated vegetable oils. The results did not turn out as expected — saturated fats weren’t killing people.

In a stunning example of science ignored, researchers, either unable or

cubed roast beef with herbs

unwilling to believe the study outcomes, did not talk about this data for decades. The results of one of the forgotten trials, a large NIH-funded study, were not published for 16 years. Another analysis that failed to link saturated fats with heart disease, part of the famous “Framingham Study,” languished, also unpublished, in an NIH basement.”

Source of article.

Recently I heard from Al Sears, M.D. a leading edge medical doctor in research and development of natural products. He makes a good case for reversing obesity here:

July 21, 2017


Most people think liver disease only happens to alcoholics.

But the truth is that being overweight or obese actually puts you at a much higher risk for liver damage than alcohol.

In fact, alcohol contributes to only 6% of liver damage. But obesity contributes to 52% of liver disease.

And if you’re obese, you’re 400% more likely to develop liver damage than a normal-weight individual.

That’s why about 30% of people in America have some form of chronic fatty liver disease. It’s called nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD causes painful swelling and scarring of the liver.

And I blame modern food companies. Our food supply is now drenched in Big Agra’s high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

Just like alcohol, HFCS is toxic to the liver. Unlike other sugars it goes straight to your liver. It doesn’t go into your muscles and tissues for energy. It promotes the formation of new fat molecules. It triggers your liver cells to store this fat where it doesn’t belong.

Our food is also loaded with bad fats, chemicals, preservatives and additives that are very hard for your liver to metabolize.

All these toxins inflame your liver and give you NAFLD. But it gets worse…

NAFLD can progress an even more deadly form known as non-alcoholic

paper cup with soda effects info written on it

steatohepatitis (NASH). About 10% to 30% of NAFLD patients develop NASH. And they are more likely to die from their liver disease. NASH can progress to hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver cancer or liver failure.

And here’s the tragedy… Mainstream medicine has no effective drug or other treatment for this condition.

I’ve been recommending a simple nutrient to my patients for years. One that protects the heart, brain, liver and more.”

You can read about his natural supplement here. And now more about how:

High Fructose Corn Syrup Effects Obesity

The rise of HFCS

High fructose corn syrup production begins with making syrup from cornstarch. This initial stage corn syrup is mostly glucose, and you can find it in the supermarket (pro tip: mix with red food coloring to make cheap and very convincing fake blood). This syrup is then isomerized (i.e., atoms shuffled around) to convert some of the glucose into fructose…”

(This article continues to describe the actual chemistry of it.)

…This fine tuning of HFCS manufacturing occurred during a period in

sign stating list of products with no high fructose corn syrup

U.S. history when sugar was becoming more expensive (in part due to trade restrictions) and corn cheaper. Farm subsidies encouraging farmers to produce as much corn as possible resulted in excess supply and thus falling prices. Manufacturers stood to save money by switching to corn-based ingredients.  In 1980, Coca-Cola began using HFCS in its beverages, and by the mid 80s most other soft drink companies had followed suit.”

This excellent report continues to discuss the sucrose/glucose/fructose subjects, the US soda consumption issue, and the obesity factor as related to HFCS, or high fructose corn syrup.

Here is a video by Dr. Joseph Mercola explaining the historical misunderstanding about saturated fats, and how the right fats are good for you.

The No Nonsense Ted material reveals a plethora of medical studies from which Ted has collected his up-to-date nutritional information and collated it with traditional tried and true low carb/high protein/healthy fat lifestyle diet.

Yet I thought it would be easier for you to peruse this material. I hope you enjoyed those articles and feel encouraged to –

The Belly Fat Melt Diet

The Belly Fat Melt Diet

Quite the eye catching phrase isn’t it? First of all, anyone who is even a few pounds overweight has belly fat and would love a belly fat melt diet.

Don’t you wish you could start losing belly weight without going through the deprivation of not having filling and satisfying meals?

There is a way you can do that. That’s why I’m writing about the no nonsense fat melting system review for you. 

Women who are recently pregnant might look skinny – except for that obvious belly stretch with some fat on it.

Anyone over 40 has started to notice the pounds creeping on their abdomen. But it’s not enough to blindly start cutting back on a few snacks, or start calorie counting.

Even if you were one of those lucky peeps who could “eat anything”. Even kids and teens suffer from obesity at an alarming level.

You can’t turn back time but can you reverse metabolic syndrome?

Yes! With an organized system that doesn’t keep you hungry, tired and weak. That allows you to eat real food in yummy meals and teaches you how to make your weight loss life long.

Sound good?

How To Reverse Metabolic Syndrome

Ted of the “No nonsense” system lays it on without any tiptoeing. He asks you for six minutes of your time if you just click over to his video   AL  (and you can then elect to read his presentation if you prefer).

The premise of his diet recommendations is to teach you how to reverse metabolic syndrome. And personally experience that.

Here is a little intro by him:

Whenever I go to the grocery store, the mall, the movies, the beach…


Seriously, ANYWHERE…

So many people I see these days are disgustingly overweight…

Months or even days away from developing diabetes or other awful health-related issues.

If I’m offending you by saying this, I’m NOT sorry… And I can promise, I’m going to probably piss you off even more if you keep reading…

But if you’re overweight right now… by a little, or a lot… you need to pay close attention because I’m going to share with you one weird, fat melting secret that works practically instantly…

Starting tonight…

To melt away your extra pounds and ugly flab without you having to give up the foods you love, or bust your butt at the gym.

But first, I need to kick some people off this page who do NOT belong here.

What I’m about to share with you is not for dummies…

It’s not for politically-correct wimps and Social Justice Warriors who say “Big Is Beautiful,” and claim you can be healthy and fabulous even though you’re on the verge of dropping dead from obesity…

And this isn’t for people who are too addicted to Facebook and reality TV to

happy couple walking dog

even watch this short video, which may very well change your life in the next few minutes.

So if you’re one of THEM, you can close this page right now…

But I can guarantee, if you do give me just six minutes of your time…

And if you’re NOT some slug who honestly believes you’re being “healthy” by ordering a Diet Coke along with your triple cheeseburger, large fries and apple pie…

Then the one weird fat melting trick I’m about to share with you WILL change your life…

Starting TODAY.”

So exclaims Ted of the No Nonsense Ted educational/diet plan/meal plans/recipes/exercise package.

Our modern diet of processed and chemically and carbohydrate laden foods ruins our metabolism. That results in metabolic syndrome.

What that means is that our energy burning system gets used to converting sugars for energy instead of burning fat for fuel.

obese teen

Foods That Increase Brain Function

Foods that increase brain function are the basis of Ted’s diet. Foods that promote mental clarity and alleviate depression and anxiety.

Foods that reverse obesity and inflammation.

Obesity, and inflammatory conditions like diabetes and metabolic syndrome inevitably follow.

Inflammation leads to:

  • Joint pain and stiffness
  • Vascular (veins and arteries) problems
  • Gastrointestinal sensitivity and pain, or IBS
  • Loss of muscle mass and lung capacity (less exercise)
  • Depression and hopelessness

Oh my gosh, see how that spirals downwards?

And tragically children and teenagers are turning into a terribly overweight population. Some with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, from trans fats and artificial sweeteners.

That’s why Ted’s diet plan is good for the whole family. It’s good for growing kids as well as adults because there is no deprivation.

It’s all about fresh healthy foods. Low carbohydrate and high protein food lists. No food group left out.

Foods That Cause Mood Swings

Starches and sugars compromise healthy blood sugar levels and therefore are foods that cause mood swings. Sugars will then give a quick relief to a bad mood, and a cycle of addiction is perpetuated.

Because of this treadmill of craving sugars and starchy foods, the white foods


are eliminated from Ted’s meal plans. (You can read more about that HERE.)  This is the most successful weight loss approach which has proven itself over decades.

White foods are:

  • Sugar (white, brown, raw etc.)
  • Grains (breads, crackers, cookies, pastas etc.)
  • Potatoes
  • Corn, white or yellow

That’s why it is necessary to avoid processed foods. They are all full of white flours, modified starches, potato flour, tapioca and other starchy fillers.

The Dr.’s Eades and Eades and Dr. Robert Atkins have published much material about this healthy eating lifestyle, which will restore damaged metabolism.

More validation that the right fats will help you maintain optimum health.

Among the many positives to this plan you will learn:

  • How to fix hypoglycemia
  • Reverse low blood sugar and depression

Years ago I started a blog to help young ballet dancers cope with the technical elements of learning ballet. Inevitably, with the interaction with readers and other ballet experts, the issue of diet came up.

Hypoglycemia was a big issue with my peers when I was younger. Diets recommended at that time counted calories. There was no knowledge of body or brain chemistry, or how simply eliminating the white foods could help a person stay thin and regain their chemical balance.

Disordered eating used to be associated with dancers, other female athletes,

social media affecting body image

and perfectionists in general.

Social Media Affecting Body Image

Now, the situation has been exacerbated by social media bullying stories and all the off line pressures of a pretty crazy world.

Anorexia and bulimia is currently seen in males as well. Anybody.

The article below may be of interest to you.

Ballet Dancer Health, Blood Sugar Balance, Depression And Hypoglycemia

Young ballet dancers often drop comments in a casual way, referring to their self esteem problems. Whether it is a body image issue, a perfection issue, a weight control problem, or a slightly depressed lack of energy issue, they either don’t come out and say it, or they really cannot articulate what the problem is.

Recently when I started reading about hypoglycemia, and blood sugar balance,

pink cookies
These will drop your blood sugar!

I began to relate its symptoms to many of the statements I have heard.

I became more interested in hypoglycemia and its sometimes subtle symptoms, due to a conversation I had with a non-dancer, a talented performer, in another field.

This person has performed in many countries, is pushed forward by all her teachers, and yet cannot accept the accolades from teachers or peers, or the enthusiasm of fans, because – she just can’t.

The lack of self-esteem in this person confuses me. A person who won the number one state award for acting while still in high school? That’s like winning the ballet competition performing the Blue Bird or Swan Lake pas de deux.

Disorder eating is most broadly defined as, the behavior that results in an emotional outcome by controlling what you eat. This does not necessarily mean anorexia or bulimia, but may refer to a practice of self control or self approval in regards to the food you eat, the caloric content, and this does not only apply to dancers.

It may involve an extreme situation like a teenager who insists on being a

how to fix hypoglycemia

vegan, in which I have personally witnessed the result causing stress fractures in this dancer who still thought that she was going to be able to get stronger on pointe and have a professional career in ballet, while she looked at her x-rays.

Recently I took a look at hypoglycemia and its symptoms. Now this is tricky. Symptoms are almost unique to the individual. But the dominating symptoms, according to what I have read, are:

  • Sadness
  • Self criticism
  • Hopelessness
  • Feelings of absolutely no self worth
  • Periodic complete failure of energy, dizziness, mental confusion
  • Thoughts of suicide, though not enough energy to think further than that

Hypoglycemia is…drum roll…too low blood sugar!

It is caused by a nutritional deficiency of protein, or just lack of food.

Hypoglycemia does not mean you are diabetic, or almost diabetic. More concisely called Reactive Hypoglycemia, this is a condition that results from a poor diet, or not eating often enough for whatever reason.

Or eating too many carbohydrates with not enough protein.

The most common recommendation for hypoglycemics, is to eat some protein every two hours.

Also, I would like to mention the rule of nutritionists, that breakfast is the

low carb high protein breakfast bites

most important meal of the day. Why? Proteins set your brain chemicals for the day. Skip those, and your brain chemicals will not be properly functioning until the next day IF you happen to eat protein for breakfast.

Dance parents reading this – how often does your dancing daughter or dancing son run out of the house and skip breakfast because they slept late?

And what will they eat when they get to the food dispensers at school? Or will they go hungry until they get to the school cafeteria for lunch?

This is a miserable situation for a non-athlete student, not to mention a ballet dancer or any other athlete.

And later when they run off to their ballet academy? Are you one of those ballet parents who have to suffer hearing “I’m not that good”…”I’m not good enough”… and worse?

While the ballet teacher is telling you your child should be aiming higher – auditioning for professional summer intensives?

Confused yet? Let me give you some relief. Hypoglycemia-without-Diabetes at http://benjimester.hubpages.com is an eye-opening discussion. It is worth reading the entire thread.

Personally, I believe that hypoglycemia is caused by:

  • Lack of education about nutrition
  • Processed, fast-food, frozen food products
  • Not enough time to serve fresh food indicating what nutritious food is
  • Addiction to sugar (nutritional ignorance)
  • Ignorance about grains, GMO grains, glutin and GMO sugars

And, sadly much more I cannot cover here. BUT please, if your dancing child

sad teen

or anyone in your family has any energy or depression issues – but not severe enough to consult your physician (who probably will not have any nutritional education) or therapist, please investigate hypoglycemia.

It is an insidious condition – but can be reversed with a good diet!

It is not that difficult. I would love to never hear from again, a ballet dancer, or any other kind of performing artist, who feels morose, depressed, sad, or hopeless about their talent or potential, when they have no idea where all this negativity comes from. And they skip meals, eat nutrition-free snacks, and have low blood sugar…

I would love to never hear from again, a sad, depressed ballet parent, whose amazing talented child is failing, sinking, not even treading water, suffering from body image problems, or self esteem problems, and contemplating quitting ballet, or even suicide. For the want of nutritional balance.

This may take a lot of extra food preparation for ballet parents! If you’re still reading this post, I bet you’re O.K. with that.

I do not believe that nutrition is superior to the human spirit. But I do believe that the aspirations of the human spirit are so much more easily achieved if we know about and support our bodies’ needs, every day. This may take a little extra study.

I consider the


No Nonsense Ted


instant download package to be that.

If your child is open to hearing about it, the reason for nutrition is a great education you can share with them. Let them browse through your No Nonsense Ted package.

Foods That Cause Mood Swings

It’s well known that teenagers can be moody while they are growing up. Hormones trying to balance the brain and body, combined with growth spurts can make life frustrating.

Too many carbs, processed foods, and “empty”, or no-nutrition foods can irritate the nervous system and weaken the immune system.

Lack of healthy fats (grass fed meats, wild caught fish, unrefined coconut oil, and pasture fed dairy sources) can starve the brain, the hormones, and damage metabolism for life.

Adults experience this too as they age (except for growth spurts)!

But if you adults, or your teens, experience wild mood swings, periodic

wild mood swings T shirt

depression, fatigue, or anger, you may be able to help yourself, or him or her.

Nutritional deficiencies may be responsible for many symptoms of a lack of wellness.


Mood disorders in children, adolescents, and adults can often be corrected with healthy fresh food.

There is a chain of events that lead to poor nutrition for everyone at this point:

  • Depleted soil caused by no rest period as well as chemical fertilizers
  • Hormone disruptors in the food we buy from pesticides
  • Foods are mineral deficient because the soil is mineral deficient
  • Nutritious food is fresh food
  • Processed foods are full of chemicals that change your brain
  • Your brain, body chemistry and hormones are dazed and confused

How could anyone not have a mood disorder?

Mineral intake is crucial. The mineral magnesium is responsible for thousands

low carb high protein foods
source. High magnesium foods.

of chemical interactions in your biochemistry. A magnesium deficiency needs to be corrected and in most cases a healthy high quality diet will do it.Some magnesium deficiency symptoms that could be related to a mood disorder are:

  • Headaches, including migraine
  • Neck and back aches
  • Panic and anxiety attacks
  • Constipation
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Irritability including PMS
  • Irregular heartbeat

An adolescent (or child, or adult) mood disorder may begin and end with nutrition. Whatever other treatment is available, a diet of healthy and delicious meal plans is bound to help.

The recommended No Nonsense Ted package gives fabulous meal plans and recipes!

Foods That Help Brain Function

Another area of nutrition that affects the brain is the Vitamin B Compound. The B vitamins should be taken together in the compound mix, because a lot of one can create deficiencies, or imbalance in the others.

However, B12 is so inadequately consumed, that a separate supplement can be used. Sublingual, or under the tongue tablets are the easy to take, and they taste good too. B12 is also available in a spray bottle.

Teens live on fast food to a large degree. Is there such a thing as the healthiest

foods that help brain function
source. Doesn’t everyone love peanut butter?

fast food? Well, sort of. A good green (or peanut  butter) smoothie with some protein powder added can be made to taste delicious.

Healthy oils are another factor that influence brain function and therefore mood. Healthy oils that result in enough omega three fatty acids to balance the omega 6 fatty acids that are more prevalent in our diet, also create brain hormones.

These brain hormones manufacture the chemicals that allow us to feel enthusiastic and mentally sharp. In other words, they are mood elevators.

Teens (and adults) who diet too much and try to live on non-fat foods are denying their brains what they need to thrive and grow.

Sugar and caffeine are wonderful mood elevators, but as we all know, there is a quick spike of biochemical activity, and then a crash.

Furthermore, while sugar and caffeine create wild mood swings they

Exercise cannot be left out of anyone’s life, and many teens sit down too much. School hours, studying, a social life on the computer or other electronic device, all sitting down.

A problem for all of us perhaps! Yet a growing teen needs exercise to trigger bone growth, in fact all growth. And adults need to challenge major muscle groups in order to preserve their bone density.

If you have a teen who experiences wild mood swings or seems to be depressed, and you don’t feel ready to start the onslaught of tests, or cannot, start him/her on a fast healthy weight loss diet plan. Sneak nutrition into their diets as much as you can.

Here is a video by a doctor, discussing diet, healthy fats and depression.

And please note that if someone is thin, this diet system is full of healthy fats, is designed to restore damaged metabolism, and may help acquire a healthy weight.

There is more information about safe dieting here.

Of course consult your health care practitioner if you have or suspect a medical condition, before you change your diet and exercise routines.

A Food And Weight Loss Journal

If you’’ve been led to reading this article, the odds are that you’ve probably begun your journey of sorting out what triggers you to eat at times that may not be the most advantageous for your health. And you’re considering a food and weight loss journal.

It’s important to acknowledge the connection between emotional responses and the foods that calm them. Now you’re taking a productive step to exert control over the habits that have grown over the course of months, a few years, and perhaps for you, a lifetime.

The first step was recognizing that you had an issue, so the second will be to learn how to uncover your triggers to emotional eating.

The Benefits Of A Food Journal

The most powerful ally that you will have in your search for the source of your emotional eating will be your food journal. This is where you will record the details of your eating routines each day.

Be sure that you leave space to include the factors and circumstances of each meal and what you ate for each.

As you begin to detail each meal, it’s incredibly likely that a pattern will begin to emerge. This pattern will probably be a cross section of the moments and influences that trigger emotional eating.

Soon you’ll begin to experience the benefits of a food journal.

Your Emotional Triggers List

The food journal is the most honest and least biased source of information that you will have at your disposal. There is nothing as quite as convincing as your own personally recorded history.

Being able to see what your habits are throughout the week gives you a good idea of how you spend your time and when you eat.

Especially if you eat out of a compulsion to stuff down feelings or tranquilize yourself. What was your motive to eat:

  • Was it stress?
  • Who were you talking to before you ate food?
  • Where were you before you got the urge to eat?
  • Did something trigger a memory?

These pieces of information will give you an emotional triggers list. This list

could be the awareness you need to set you free from emotional eating.

And the more honest you can be with yourself, the more effective your food and weight loss journal will be.

How To Stop Anxiety Fast

Now you know something about who or what is the source of triggers for emotional eating. This will help you re-train yourself and learn how to stop anxiety fast. It’s time to become creative about your routines and make them work for you.

Make a few changes at first, say even just three or four. The purpose is to avoid the anxieties you have listed, to a large degree. Even if you start with just one, you’re heading in the right direction.

You will no longer allow these triggers to drive you into a compulsive unhealthy eating.

This can be done in most cases by simply avoiding the triggers. If you know that certain things, events, or people stress you out, it makes sense to limit your contact with some of these triggers until you have more control over your eating habits.

It’s okay, and can even be important, to place your well-being over some obligations.

Meditation may help you control stress and experience happier days. I have written some tips about meditation HERE.

The No Nonsense Ted information and meal plans is your backbone of

healthy high protein low carb food list

support while you take control of your emotional eating. I recommend it highly, for the reasons I outline in the articles on this site.

My comprehensive review of that life changing system is HERE.


Make A High Protein Low Carb Food List

Within your journal, make a high protein low carb food list for snacks and eating on the run. Keep a copy in your wallet or purse to refer to whenever you need it.

This will help you satisfy hunger with nutritional fat burning foods.

If you do this, you will see weight loss on a steady basis.

The prime focus of your food and weight loss journal is your eating habits and emotional responses that trigger eating.

However, it’s good to keep a weight lost page – not to obsess over, but to note your progress and feel good about it.

Meditating will also help you to accomplish a variety of daily tasks.

One of the greatest things that meditation is good for, is to focus your mind before consuming a meal. Why meditate before a meal?

Meditation before a meal can help you to practice mindful eating, and help you to be in control of your eating habits, so he’s a few tips for meditating.

Begin With Short Sessions

An easy way to get started with meditation is to just start off with a very small

meditating girl

amount of time like 1.5 – 2 minutes. After you have gotten used to meditating for that period, increase the amount of time you will meditate by 2 minutes each week. In 4 months, you

will be able to meditate for about 20 minutes with ease.

Make It a Part of A Daily Routine

The best way to get used to your new routine is to make a part of your morning, in fact you could even make it the very first thing you do. It’ll take almost no time at all until

you’’re getting into the longer periods around the third or fourth months, so you can get some practice focusing your mind on the details like your amount of fullness, and other indications.

And by the way, you do not need to sit in a lotus position, a half lotus, or any other pose. You need a chair where you can sit with your feet flat on the floor.

Set Yourself Up With No Distractions

Your main goal is to just sit comfortably enough for you to be able to focus on

the task at hand. A chair with a soft seat on which you can easily sit straight yet relaxed will be a help. It’s probably a good idea to be in loose fitting clothing so you meditate without your attention drifting to any discomfort.

Continue to focus on being mindful towards your physical well-being. A basic type of meditation involves paying attention to the inhale and exhale of each breath.

Be mindful of any emotions that you may be feeling. Simply be aware of them without engaging in any analysis.

Expect That Your Mind Will Wander

This is something that happens to everyone until they have a handle on meditation. You might find yourself thinking about your shopping list, and other things you have planned to do.

talk self love

When this happens, just begin again. Don’t get frustrated with yourself. There is no failure here, or comparison to an imaginary ideal. Simply stop and regroup with your breath count starting at one. Be kind and patient with yourself. A loving attitude towards yourself will manifest as time passes, and you gain more experience with meditation.

Why Am I Binge Eating?

This is a complex question and everyone’s answer will be different. Examining this topic is a separate journey altogether.

The No Nonsense Ted AL package that I recommend does not strive to get analytical about the inner psyche.

Except for the fact that sugar and carbohydrates irritate the nervous system by various means. Poor nutrition can lead to anxiety and junk food addiction, increasing the harmful effects of this “treadmill” type of habit.

Sugar and carbs act as tranquilizers for a short term relief. Then they tank your blood sugar levels and you crave more.

Sugar is a prime inflammatory food. In fact, heart disease is now related to sugar, not fats, as it used to be.

If you have a binge eating disorder, or simply eat when you’re emotionally upset, try meditation.

Meditation has shown to decrease the release of stress chemicals in our brain.

I really hope this article gets you started in a new and healthy habit of meditating and feeling more relaxed.

Here is a whole page of books about meditation on Amazon. Take a look!
