Health Moment - Weight loss and your sugar habit:
Are you one who believes your weight loss might take-off if you ate less sugar and refined foods?
I have to say, cutting sugar down may well be your entry point to kick-start your weight loss over the next 90 days.
Sugar is eaten in excess by so many people. It's easy to do!
While there's no one super-food for weight loss, there's something better, categories of food options that you can pick and choose from that work for weight loss.
If weight loss is your goal, or if it's better health and stamina, you will want to understand the relationship of your blood sugar and your weight loss.
If you want to help those you work with or love because they seem stuck and you are aware that they are having difficulty, you can try a few things.
Obviously if they need a lot of help, professional referrals are important.
But here's what you can look for:
There's a few things you can do...

There are times we feel overwhelmed with our to-do lists, our responsibilities or our stuff. This can lead to stress, ill health and it can grow the habit of ending our day feeling completely depleted and exhausted.
I've got a real quick, minute-and-a-half meditation you can use so you get focused and stop feeling so scattered.
What happens is we can get in a state of being hyper- alert. This happens so easily today with so much media coming our direction. It doesn't help that we also have beeping, vibrating and alerts that come from our technical devices so we always feel on tap.
We have so much information at our finger tips that our neurons in our brain have been firing on hyper-alert, probably for a long time. We train our neurons (nerve cells) to do this everyday.
Your brain and nervous system may be firing in all directions all the time making you feel hyper-alert and not able to sleep, concentrate, find joy, feel resourceful and simple, have fun or be at peace like you'd like.
You've probably gotten started on tasks or missions that sounded good at first only to quickly run into the frustration that "No" it is indeed not the action or habit you can or want to stick to.
So you stop. And you may try something new, but for most people it ends here.
It may be a big, life-altering new action that you turned away from like those that, with continuation could lead to weight loss, a health turn-around, or a good social life boost or it might be little actions you thought would be healthy only to find that they now feel tedious.
One might say that you fell out of discipline. Or as a pattern, you aren't disciplined. But I would never say that because I know there's a lot working against a person in trying to make any self-motivated habit change.
In fact, most of us never consciously choose our next directions but rather we fall into new patterns based on what others are doing around us and the circumstances that befall us.
In the Habit Change LAB, we work through that internal resistance you feel so you get out of your own way and start making big strides in new habits in 90 days or less.
The thing is, you always keep your dreams and desires, they never really go away. You may stuff them down or make excuses of why you can't get them - like you're too young, too old, too far beyond it, too this, too that - but those are just that, excuses. Your dreams and desires are still your compasses. They still means something for you.
There's a beautiful balance that is involved when a person both A) Has a desire or the big picture in mind of what they want and B) Takes the little actions necessary to achieve that big picture.
The big picture works when paired with the little actions...
Self love practices can improve your mental well-being and stop mental health problems that can creep in and take control. Often, there is confusion around self love and what it really involves but it’s basically all about being kind to yourself. Get this skill on track and you can set yourself up for personal growth and a series of healthy, happy life experiences you love.
Self love can take a lot of different forms, some of which aren’t always obvious. Here are a few self love key practices that you may not be doing right now.
I've got a question for you...are you where you want to be in health? Ready for the pool and the get-together's?
I have to say, if food rules your world too often, it's frustrating! It's too bad that the habit of giving into junk-food binges can command such influence in our lives.
Cravings may pull on you, yet if you notice, they never help you...that is, except for the fleeting moments of happiness or instant satisfaction.
This may or may not be an ongoing habit. If it is, you may feel trapped or stuck in it and you may end up going moment-to-moment looking for your next bit of food (or other craving) happiness.
Junk food cravings don't help you in any way when it comes to health, your energy or losing weight.

What food cravings get you most often?
When does indulging in your favorite snack cross the line from comfort to concern?
The difference between emotional eating and binge eating lies mainly in how much food you consume. However, other key features may help you distinguish between the two and put an end to unhealthy over-eating or snacking habit.
Stress manifests in different ways, but most of us can relate to the concept of emotional eating. Ever catch yourself wallowing in a container full of ice cream after a particularly stressful day?
Emotional eating or stress eating is when you consume food not out of hunger, but out of anxiety,
It's worse than you think. Not all the time and not as bad for some people than others, but junk food binges drive your moods and health down (into the gutter sometimes).
When do people suffer? Anytime, it's possible, but sugary junk food binges may be at the heart of your moodiness, depression, anxiety or overwhelm during the commonly occurring celebrations or holidays you entertain throughout the year - including your birthday.
It's not always you, sometimes it's your food.
