Sugar Scripts for Any Occasion

Sugar has been a part of my life since I was an infant.  And believe me, I was not born with this superwoman “sugar-is-not-appealing” strength.

I had to go through many times of breaking my addiction, getting addicted again, then cutting the habit, and getting addicted before I finally figured out some tips to stop the habit for good.

Now that I know how devastating sugar is to your weight loss goals and how it wreaks havoc in the body, I want to share some tips on how to handle yourself in social events where you are offered sugar left and right.

All of us have been in this situation.

You’re at a party, and suddenly someone comes to you and gives you a piece of cake.

I believe we deserve to have other options than just saying “Yes” out of guilt and eating that piece of cake.

If this is not the day that you planned to have your cheat meal, then there are several things you can do and say.

If you’re offered a piece of cake, you can say, “No, thank you. I’m good, thanks very much.  Have you seen the rainbow today?  Wasn’t it lovely?”

This is called deflection.

You say “No,” thank the person, and then follow it with small talk about a general but exciting topic.

This will take the person’s mind away from the sugar and from recognizing that you don’t want sugar (which makes them question your sanity or wonder what’s wrong with them not to have the willpower to say no to sugar… none of which has anything to do with you).

If deflection does not work, use an excuse.

You can say, “No thank you. I notice that when I eat sugar, my skin breaks out.  It must be an allergy.”

Usually, they stop at the word allergy.

Here you give an actual reason, and the person won’t take offense because you are taking full responsibility for your experience.

The Life-Changing-Event Excuse

Use this last tip when you’re confronted by a super aggressive sugar-pusher (aka your Grandmother) who may use guilt to shove sugar in your face.

This is when you need to pull out your big guns and go strong by saying that you are preparing for a contest, a photo shoot, an important event, or you’re getting ready for a vacation at the beach.  Tell them that you’re feeling great about the progress that you have been making.

You can then follow it up with another conversation about something that interests the person. What is their absolute favorite thing to talk about? Use that in this context now. You will need all the secret weapons you can handle to block this level of attack.

In our society today where social events center around food and sugar for that matter, we will be faced with these challenges.

It’s best to tackle them head-on with preparation and consciousness.

These scripts have been working for me for years.

So next time, when you’re in a party, you can try to use these lines and see how they work for you. I want to hear about how they worked for you.

Success Story: Shed Off 8.5 Inches In 28 Days

When I struggled with my weight years ago, I kept jumping from one fitness program to another.

Nothing seemed to work.

I realized that the one big factor missing in these programs was the COMMUNITY FACTOR.

It was having a community of women who were going through the same weight loss journey as I was.

Women that I can relate to and can accept me with no judgements.

This is still what’s missing with most health and fitness programs today.

This is the reason I created TrimTribe.

 

Lose Weight With Other Women

Meet Betz.

She is one of the founding members of TrimTribe.

When she joined the group, she realized that to be in a community of women who support and cheer her on is crucial for her success.

This is what she said:

“It feels great knowing that you have friends in the community that are rooting for you and helping you along the way. It’s priceless…  I fit into a bikini that had been sitting in my drawers for a long time and it felt amazing.”

-Betz
TrimTribe Member

* Of course, these results not typical of everyone who buys our products, individual results will vary based on dedication, body type & more.

 

She lost a total of 8.5 inches in only 28 days.

Equally important is how she felt after completing the challenge.

Her smile says it all.

She’s more radiant and her confidence is beaming.

She has more energy to do amazing things with her family and friends.

She is definitely shining!

Cleanse from the Inside Out

Being cleansed from within feels absolutely amazing!

When you are clean on the inside, the outside will surely feel the same way.

Suddenly your skin is clearer and more supple.

Your face seems to glow and it’s more radiant.

Your hair becomes shinier and softer.

You smell like you just got out of the shower.

Now I want that feeling!

One way to cleanse the inside of your body is through hydration.

And what is the best beverage to hydrate your body?

Nothing else but WATER. 

It’s 100% natural, healthy and it’s easy to get too.

Water is the number 2 nutrient that our bodies need and we owe it to ourselves to drink lots of it.

If you’re one who is not a fan of the “bland” taste of water, I hear you.

I used to hate it too.

I used to choose either sugary sodas or fruit juices in cans and boxes over water.

This was the case until I discovered the amazing benefits you get from hydrating with water.

It will help you get rid of toxins from the food that you eat and from other sources in our environment.

These are the harmful chemicals that cause so many damaging effects in our bodies.

You wouldn’t want that staying inside you, would you?

I’ve heard so many people say that water can cause bloating.

I want to throw that myth out the window.

It’s the chemicals that cause the fat storage and the hormonal imbalance that in the end, cause the bloating.

And hydrating the body with water is one of the best ways to take out these toxic wastes.

Cleanse from within jpg

For those of you who want to start a new healthy habit of drinking more water, I honor you.

It’s one of the best decisions that you can ever make for your body.

Want a refreshing twist on a drink that may have been so boring for you?

Try adding slices of lime, lemon or cucumber in your ice cold water.

This will add more flavor and vitamins to your drink. It’s a win-win!

You will see a huge difference in the way you feel and look once you start this new habit.

This could also be a great health habit, don’t you think?

Let me know how it works for you.

Less Cardio for Weight Loss

Did you know that I do less cardio than before… and l am still fitter and leaner than ever?

This may sound unbelievable, I know.

We have been led to believe that it’s healthy to do hours on the treadmill.

That we should run for miles to get a toned physique…

That we should spend most of our exercise time doing cardio.

But this just isn’t true!

Most women spend way too long doing cardio, and they are burning off their muscles instead of burning fat.

Another problem with cardio is that women tend to be compulsive with cardio.

We become addicted to it.

The truth is, it’s not healthy for your body’s metabolism.

When you’re doing high-intensity cardio over long periods of time, you burn off glucose, which is sugar.

However, when you’re burning off sugar, you actually start craving even more sugar.

You’re training your body to use sugar as fuel and this can lead to more and more intense sugar cravings.

Cardio can also burn muscles when you do it for too long.

It doesn’t burn off fat.

What our bodies need are intense bouts of cardio followed by slow walking or resting.

These are called Intervals.

Here are some examples of Intervals:

  • Do a 1-minute sprint followed by a 2-minute walk.
  • You can also do a 2-minute run followed by a 4-minute walk.

It’s always a 1:2 ratio, meaning every spike you do, you do twice as long in the lower intensity.

When you do intervals, you spike your heart rate during the bursts of cardio and lower it when you do the lower intensity.

This tells your body to hold on to the muscle and get rid of the fat.

You can spend less time on cardio.

You actually become leaner because you get to keep the muscles and not burn them off.

What you’re doing is training your body to burn fat, which means you’re going to be craving fat.

That’s when you know that you’re on the right path.

Your body should be craving fat and not sugar.

This means that you’ve trained your metabolism to go from being a “sugar burner” to a “fat burner”.

Try it and let me know how it works for you.

Love and Light,

Put the Fun Back in Fitness

If you’re not having fun, you’re not going to stick with it.

This is why diets and other weight loss programs don’t work.

Who would want to be around anyone who’s starving themselves, going through extreme diets and exercising until they couldn’t stand anymore?

They are  so moody, so irritable and they are not fun to be around.

Putting back the fun in fitness and health is the key to making it a lifestyle.

Do you remember the time when you were a kid and could not get enough of playing games and winning prizes?

Losing weight could be exactly like that if you want to.

Make a game out of it and give yourself prizes in the process.

First, set your target – your short term and long term goals.

When you hit your target, give yourself something that you enjoy.

You can buy yourself a new dress or hit the town for a nice meal.

Give yourself anything that makes you feel rewarded.

Playing games with friends is always fun.

Put the Fun Back in Fitness MainSo grab your girl friends and exercise together.

Look for a relative or someone who you can share healthy recipes with.

Going through a weight loss journey will be a lot easier if you’re having fun.

Find ways to enjoy the process.  Put back fun in fitness.

You’ll find yourself sticking with it and achieving your weight loss goals in no time.

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.
