Conquer Your Chocolate Cravings

Chocolate cravings can surely destroy your willpower to lose weight.

One minute you’re working out, eating healthy and doing everything right.

Then the next minute, you’re overpowered by this intense appetite to have these sweet “treats”.

You eat one… and you just can’t stop.

It is so easy to get hooked on chocolates like so many other women.

It doesn’t help that you see chocolates everywhere. They are at the supermarket counters, at the convenience stores, and even at the gas stations.

It used to be so hard to find chocolates, but today they put it on almost everything!

From candy bars, to chocolate drinks and even on savory dishes, most women encounter opportunities to eat chocolate over 100 times per day!

Your cravings can be satisfied anytime and anywhere.

This overwhelming focus on chocolate makes you have chocolate cravings all the time.

 

Why Are Chocolates So Addictive?

Have you ever wondered why you crave chocolate so much?

The components of chocolates have something to do with it.

Chocolate’s original and natural form is actually a health food.

Chocolates come from Cacao beans that are usually found in Central America.

These beans belong in the coffee family.

So it’s already a stimulant.

When you eat it, you get the immediate rush of energy.

It releases Dopamine that makes you sharp, fast and you feel amazing just like what coffee does to your brain.

At its natural state, the Cacao beans is a nutritious food because it is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins.

However, the food industry started adding in other ingredients to make it an even more powerful stimulant.

They added sugar that also provides your brain with a rush of energy.

Cacao plus Sugar equals a DOUBLE HIT of ENERGY.

But as you know from every sugar rush you’ve ever had… the euphoria does not last.

Soon enough, your body will crash, you will feel lethargic and your mood will be affected.

This is because sugar is toxic and is so destructive to the brain and body.

It can only give you fake energy.

The food industry did not stop there.

They added another ingredient to the cacao to make it even more enticing … milk.  

This is now what is mass produced all around the world called “Milk Chocolate”.

When you break down what is in milk, there’s very little protein in it and a whole lot of sugar.

Milk has Lactose.

Just remember that everything that ends in OSE (lactose, fructose, glucose etc.) is a form of sugar.

Literally, the chocolates we have in the market give you a TRIPLE hit of energy.

So it’s no wonder why it’s so addictive.

It also releases Dopamine which is what we call the novelty hormone.

Dopamine makes anything you’re experiencing at the moment magnified.

You feel bonded and closer to every experience when you have chocolates.

That’s why lovers give each other chocolates at Valentine’s Day because they bond on this high.

You love the feeling when you eat chocolates… so you crave them all the time.

Your body is not designed to handle this many toxins at once.

You can become insulin resistant that can lead to Diabetes and fat storage.

 

How To Control Your Chocolate Cravings

1. Eat Natural Foods Rich In Magnesium

When you crave something, it is usually because you are depleted of a certain nutrient.

In this case, you may be low in Magnesium because Cacao is rich in it.

Instead of chocolate, you can have green leafy vegetables, Almonds, Broccoli, Avocados and  Flax seeds to name a few.

 

2.  Be Aware Of Your Chocolate Cravings Level

Catch the cravings before it even gets to the point where you’re powerless and all  you can do is give in.

Make a deal with yourself.

When you feel the urge to eat chocolates, have a mini-Meal™ instead.

It’s a meal composed of natural foods rich in protein, carbohydrates (that you can get from greens) and healthy fats.

Flood your body with nutrition.

If you still feel the chocolate cravings after having the meal, then allow yourself to eat some.

So many of my clients said that this tip freed them from their chocolate cravings.

This is because usually when you crave something, your body is actually craving nutrition.

 

3. Find The Deeper Reason

Sometimes chocolate cravings go deeper than just having the taste of it in your mouth.

It may be a desire to have an emotional attachment and you are craving something to satisfy the lack of sweetness in your life.

You may feel disconnected with your own feelings or with other people.

You may want encouragement and you’re not getting it, and that’s why you turn to chocolates to fill the void.

It may also be a need to for spiritual connection.

You may be at a loss when it comes to fulfilling your ultimate purpose in life.

You may need to look into something higher that can make you feel  contentment.

Here are examples of activities that you can do to satisfy these missing pieces in your life:

  • Connect with other women who are on the same health journey as you are.  Join TrimTribe.
  • Write your thoughts and feelings in a journal.
  • Meditate
  • Exercise

 

When you have chocolate cravings, have some time to examine these areas of your life.

Go through these steps first before actually giving in to your cravings.

Find out what is really happening in your mind and body and you can free yourself from chocolate cravings in no time.

Let me know how these work for you.

Secrets To Toned Underarms

Having underarm flab is very frustrating to a lot of women.

You worry about wearing your favorite sleeveless tops and dresses.

You are embarrassed to show your underarms jiggle.

Believe me, I know how it feels because I have struggled with this for years.

It wasn’t until I studied the science behind it that I was able to tone my bloated underarms.

Yes, there is real science behind it, and I will reveal to you the secrets that I have discovered.

 

HOW TO GET SEXY AND TONED UNDERARMS

 

Secret #1:   Focus On How Strong Your Arms Are

The arms are so important for our whole physical presence.

We need them in order to do so many things.

When you focus on what’s positive about your arms, they are going to respond to your actions in a positive way.

Re-framing your relationship with this part of the body can do wonders.

Every time you do anything that requires you to use your arms, give them the appreciation they deserve.

Say “Thank you, arms. I am able to carry my child.”  or “Thank you, arms, I am able to work today.”

How you think about your body and how you talk to it is EVERYTHING!

Witness your arms respond positively to your exercises and all the other health choices you make as you appreciate them more every day.

 

Secret #2:  Build Muscles For Toned Underarms

When you increase your muscle mass, you decrease fat.

We want to build muscles and to use our muscles — muscles that work for you!

You need to build muscles in your ENTIRE BODY, not just in the underarms section.

The statement that we cannot spot-reduce fat is true.

The underarm flab is there because there is a certain percentage of body fat covering your entire body.

As you increase the muscle mass percentage of the body, the body fat percentage decreases all over.

When you achieve this, you will not only get those toned and sexy underarms that you’ve always wanted, your entire body will be lean as well.

 

Secret #3:  Keep Your Arms Moving

Building muscles makes your arms stronger.

But it’s not all about strengthening this part of the body.

You also have to keep the mobility of the arms.

You need to keep them moving.

The flexibility of the arms is equally important.

You want to tune in to your shoulders, elbows and wrists.

Try these Yoga poses for arm flexibility:

Child’s Pose

Downward Dog

Upward Dog

Secret #4:  Healthy Balance In Your Hormones Is Key

For years, I couldn’t understand why I would still have bloating in my underarms even if I was doing everything right.

I was exercising and eating clean and still, the underarm flab was there.

That’s when I started studying Hormones.

What I discovered was that the underarm flab is a sign of having too much Estrogen in the body.

This was a big AHA moment for me!

Estrogen is a female hormone.  When our estrogen levels are too high it causes irritability, mood swings, depression and yes, underarm fat.

Unfortunately, it’s not just our bodies that are producing estrogen.

Toxins in the food we eat and in the products that we use everyday such as shampoos, face creams, soap, etc. can also mimic the hormone, estrogen.

They are called “Xeno Estrogens” and they can contribute to causing underarm flab.

So what you want is to lower the amount of estrogen in your environment by avoiding the chemicals in these products as much as you can.

Go for natural and organic products that don’t add to the amount of estrogen produced by your body.

There are so many of them out there and it’s just a matter of finding what works for you.

These are the secrets to toning your underarm flab.

I discovered them through years of studying the science of the body and through my own experience.

So, are you ready to get your sleeveless outfits out?

Try these tips and I’m sure you will have those lean, toned and sexy underarms in no time.

Overcome Your Weight Loss Plateau

Let me ask you this: Where are you now in your weight loss journey?

After seeing your weight come off and your clothes fit better than ever, do you feel that your weight loss has stopped and that there is no progress anymore?

You continue dieting and working out but somehow when you measure yourself, you see the same results.

You haven’t lost an inch.

Do you feel like you’re stuck and the next step is to just give up?

Then you may be experiencing a Weight Loss Plateau.

 

 How To Breakthrough A Weight Loss Plateau

A weight loss plateau is when your body stops losing weight, your fat cells stop shrinking, your cravings come back and your emotions that you were suppressing are now coming back to the surface.

Scary, right?

Being on a plateau could be even more frustrating than if you were never able to lose the weight in the first place.

It’s because you’ve had a taste of what it’s like to accomplish something that you thought was impossible.

Unfortunately, so many women give up at this point.

I want to tell you now that this is all part of a healthy weight loss journey.

It is an opportunity to learn what’s really going on inside your mind and your body.

If you can ride this out, you can actually go to a greater point.

This weight loss plateau is an opportunity to ask yourself these questions.

‘Why do I have these cravings?’ 

‘Am I filling a void in my life?’

‘Why am I running to food to fill what’s inside my heart?’

‘Why do I care about losing weight in the first place?’

When you ask questions like these, this is when the real work comes in.

Your body is inviting you to go deeper within yourself.

 

Starvation diets can make you lose weight temporarily and it can give you such a high.

It’s like a drug, and you want more of it.

But you will hit a plateau.

At this point, maybe you’ve become so obsessed about how to get that high back.

So you go on your starvation diets again.

When you don’t get the same results, maybe you start to take pills.

Then you hit the plateau again so you start to take more pills or even turn to surgeries.

Well, guess what, you will still hit the plateau. I know because I have been through ALL of this.

Unless you are prepared to accept that you will go through plateaus in your weight loss journey, you will still be a yo-yo dieter.

Until you do the internal work of really finding out the answers to these questions, you will still end up giving up when you hit this stage of the journey.

Dealing with these issues and discovering the answers to these questions will help you ride through the plateaus quicker.

Remember, that the universe or your beliefs would not give this to you now unless you were ready.

So welcome it because the more you run, the harder it’s going to be.

Riding out the weight loss plateau is one of the most powerful steps that you can take in your weight loss journey.

This is the time that you get to know yourself even more so you can continue losing weight.

You will also be able to keep it off because you have already dealt with the issues inside of you.

So hang in there.

Change things up if you want.

Find what motivates you.

Remember to never give up because this too shall pass.

Wherever you are right now in your weight loss journey is exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Take the weight loss plateau as what they are meant to be…an opportunity for you to go from this point to something even greater.

Make time to ask yourself these questions and really go deep to discover the answers.

There’s no need to rush.

This is YOUR journey.

Do it at your own pace.

Try this and let me know how it works.

 

To Your Inner Peace,
Love and Light,

The Truth About Weight Loss

In the 15 years that I have been in this industry, I’ve discovered so much about the truth of weight loss.

After years of studying, analyzing, testing it out on myself and even helping others like you to achieve true success in their weight loss journey, today we take things back to the fundamentals and explore this truth.

The foundation of weight loss has factors that remain solid throughout every year, and now is the time for you to break free from yo-yo dieting!

Isn’t that exciting?

The back and forth roller coaster of weight loss can wear you out and some might even lose hope.

Well tribe, here is the truth about weight loss for you!

 

Weight Loss Is Supposed To Be Fun

This is the first truth of weight loss.

Losing weight should be fun, not discouraging or unbearable.

If you’re not enjoying the journey then you’re not doing it right.

The struggle of the diet industry is that it brainwashes many women into thinking they need to starve themselves or hurt their bodies into weight loss.

This destructive concept creates yo-yo dieting, makes you and your body miserable and is so far from the truth.

Counting calories and gauging success by the scale hinders your happiness along your journey, plus it doesn’t work!

Having fun while you lose weight is one of the major ways you’ll lose weight and keep it off forever.

The TrimTribe community is committed to having fun, but also they are there to reach out to you during your journey.

Here at TrimTribe, we are committed to a bond which is a lasting resource to help you whenever you need.

This community has perfect understanding of what you’re going through because they’re going through it too.

And I’m here for you too.

You’ll also be able to understand how you can keep the weight off for good and truly optimize your health.

As you follow, bond, and grow in the TrimTribe community, I want to encourage you to dig deeper into those relationships.

This tribe is a vessel to carry you through your journey.

Coconut Oil Miracles

I have great news for you.

You no longer have to harm your body with diet pills.

You no longer have to put destructive chemicals into your body in hopes that you lose weight.

You can combat those fat storing genes in order to fit into jeans you never imagined would fit your body.

No more low self esteem.

It’s time to heal your body from within.

Now, you’re probably asking in your head “But how, Andrea?” and I have the answer for you.

Well, one of the coolest things to come across the natural health awareness circuit lately is coconut oil.

I have personally been using it for a few years now but only recently has it hit the radar.

The more I learn about it, the more I want to share those amazing benefits with others, with you!

 

Coconut Oil Is A Healthy Fat

We need to learn how to tell between healthy, unhealthy fats and macronutrients.

Every day your brain, hair, metabolism and overall health needs healthy fats.

Coconut oil is a healthy fat.

It is great to add to your daily routine!

 

Coconut Oil Is A Beauty Remedy

If you want your skin to glow, you definitely should add coconut oil into your daily lifestyle.

While you can eat and digest coconut oil, you can also use it directly on your body.

You can use it as a natural lotion to moisturize your skin, tame your hair and SO much more!

Beauty Benefits from Coconut Oil:

Frizz-tamer
Conditioning hair mask
Anti- wrinkle eye cream
Eye makeup remover
Lip balm
Natural Deodorant or Sunscreen
Skin and Cuticle Moisturizer
Combats Stretch marks and cellulite
Toothpaste

These are just some of the numerous benefits to using coconut oil for your body.

 

Coconut Oil Can Be A Toothpaste

Coconut Oil Pulling is a thing.

Every morning when you wake up, before you eat or drink anything, put 1–2 tablespoons of coconut oil in your mouth and swish it around. Don’t swallow it!

This process works as a natural toothpaste, eliminating bacteria, promoting healthy gums and even giving your body a detox.

The oil will pull the bacteria and toxins from your body out through your mouth.

Once you’ve swooshed it around your mouth, spit it out in the trash!

You don’t want to clog any drains, so be sure it doesn’t go in your sink 😉

 

Coconut Oil will Boost Your Metabolism

Use coconut oil in your cooking.

Coconut oil is a great alternative to olive oil and butter, plus it’s a healthy fat!

Whenever you crave carbohydrates, take a spoonful of coconut oil and a spoonful of peanut butter.

Then pour almond milk on it and eat it like it’s ice cream.

I do this in my personal life, and I think it tastes amazing!

Not only does coconut oil taste great, but it’s a metabolism booster!

It can promote weight loss and help your body when you’re craving carbs.

 

Coconut Oil Is Medicine

Coconut oil has also been found to combat diseases such as type 1 and type 2 diabetes, skin conditions or diseases, Alzheimer’s, and more!

 

Where Can You Buy It?

Whole foods
Online
Grocery Stores

Coconut oil may come in many types but I always recommend you go with the virgin, unrefined form of coconut oil.

The amazing benefits to using coconut oil are endless.

You will never have trouble finding a use for coconut oil.

If you’ve been inspired, share how you use coconut oil in your daily life.
