Are you struggling to get on a healthy path and lose those unwanted pounds?
One of the most common situations I encounter is how people find it so challenging to make healthy lifestyle changes that will, without a doubt, improve the quality of their health and the quality of their life.
Stop for a moment and really think about what it is that is standing between you today not feeling great and where you want to be?
What does the “new” you want to achieve and look like?
Whatever it is, please know that you can get there. So much can be achieved through holistic lifestyle changes which don’t feel like you have just sold your soul.
Change wasn’t easy for me at first, so I’m not suggesting that it is going to be easy for you either. What does “easy” really mean after-all? It’s just a word. If we live every day fully and present we can let go of what a perceived meaning of a word really means to us. Just like we label things as “good” or “bad”.
When it comes to food, I tell my clients to think of what they eat in terms of “nutritious” and “non-nutritious” instead of saying to themselves that they have been good or bad. It really removes the harshness and judgment around our choices.
I know first-hand about all the excuses and objections because I used to say them myself!
– It’s too expensive
– I don’t have time
– I would rather go out to dinner because it’s easier
– The information is too confusing
Do any of these resonate with you? If so, you don’t have to shout it from the roof top but at the very least be honest with yourself! Don’t you agree that you owe yourself that?
If you are really serious about investing in your health, getting off the merry-go-round of diets and quick fixes, then I would love to hear from you. I have transformed my own life in such an impactful way by knowing what foods work best for my body. I have created a new lifestyle without deprivation, rules and restrictions.
Plus an added bonus is that I have found a true love and respect for my body. When we love ourselves, we naturally want to take care of ourselves.
Ellie Savoy is a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach and the author of the #1 international best selling book “Stop Dieting Start Living: 5 Foundations for Your Health to Permanently Lose Weight Without Dieting Starvation or Suffering in Silence”. She is also the founder of the Stop Dieting Start Living Weight Loss System. Her commonsense and step by step approach has literally transformed the way people look at their body, health and life. She spent over two decades under a great deal of stress. She lost sight of the importance of her health time and time again; gaining weight and yo-yo dieting to take care of it, skipping meals during the day, eating too late at night, and letting work dictate how all of her time was spent. Many people need a trigger for change in life and the first trigger for her was her mother’s passing in 2008. Then just 21 months later her father passed away. Not only was this a ton of grief to process, but it started her on a deeper exploration of what is really important in this life. The saying “you can’t take it with you when you die” really hit home. She had been living with so much stress striving for more and more losing sight of herself and her health. The final trigger was in 2011 when she was diagnosed with two uterine fibroids. The four options she was given were actually not options for her! Three involved surgery and the other one was to do nothing. This scared her into understanding what she needed to do to naturally heal her body and permanently end the yo-yo dieting dilemma. This was when she really embraced making healthy permanent lifestyle changes. Since then she has been enjoying living a diet free and healthy life, without aches and pains, medications and a bunch of rules! She hasn’t looked back since. Ellie’s approach is not just for yo-yo dieters or those wanting to lose weight – it’s for everyone who is concerned about what their future looks like and wants to take control of their health. She has helped women with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, thyroid imbalance, irritable bowel syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and a host of other symptoms. Ellie helps you to show up in your own life, stop making excuses, shift your mindset, have a plan and connect with the passion in your belly to live your best life. It’s a lot of fun!
