I’ve said it before: the small advantages (the small habits) can lead to the greatest triumphs.
Those omega 3 fatty acids will improve your immune system, lower your cortisol (stress hormone), decrease your inflammation, and help you burn more calories, leading to a gradual (but permanent) weight loss.
Meditation, when combined with visualization (imagining yourself thinner with greater vitality), creates certain brain waves, which inhibit that part of your brain that produces stress hormones. For a middle aged, senior couple, they can expect to spend $295,000 – $300,000 on their remaining lifetime medical bills.
However, the approach of shifting your eating style from nutrient poor, calorie rich foods to nutrient rich, calorie poor “real” foods is an approach that should work for everyone.
Poor sleep increases your cortisol (stress) level, causes insulin resistance, triggers urges to eat, and leads to weight gain. More importantly, the impact of those brain waves lasts much longer than the brief 5-10 minutes of medication.
Because if you eat real food, you are not going to have those cravings for a chocolate chip cookie or a hot fudge sunday.
For these people, the solution is more than just a switch to real foods; the solution also rests with obtaining a regular, good night sleep. Just think about it. If you can reset (and lower) your stress hormones, fewer calories will be directed into fat. So, if you might have sleep apnea, or if your spouse hears heavy snoring, you should have those two sleep conditions evaluated and treated. Since fat cells are toxic to the immune system, dropping a few pounds (to hit a reasonable weight target for your height and body structure) is just one of the steps – but it is a valuable step.
For you, the result might be more than improved sleep; it might be a significant drop in weight – without any dietary change.
If there is one indisputable fact about our human body, it is that everything is connected. Don’t neglect visualization (the image of losing weight) and how that impacts the wiring of your brain (and body). Daily exercise, like daily visualization, sends an important message to the brain, rewiring it toward a lower weight target.
You change your sleep, you change your weight. You change your brain waves, you change your weight.
