Why Eating Like a “Celebrity” Will Ruin Your Metabolism

Why eating like a “celebrity” will ruin your metabolism There was a time in my life, many, many years ago, that I used to buy into “celebrity” diets.  I’d pick up the current People or Us magazine and read how Oprah or some other celebrity had lost extreme amounts of weight–quickly.   The celebrity would claim that all they had to do was eat pre-packaged food, or consume a liquid-only diet, or eat a low calorie diet and/or take a magic supplement to drop pounds rapidly.  I would see the before and after pictures and think, “Wow, that diet really worked, look how fast they lost weight, and see how good they looked.”. Both the celebrity and I would assume the diet really worked! What you didn’t see or hear about was how the celebrity, three months later, was struggling to keep off the weight.  Then within the next 6 months to 2 years, the same celebrity would show up in People or Us magazine with all the weight back on confessing they had no will power and they had failed, once again, at keeping their weight down.  Oprah, it’s not you fault!!! How many of you have seen these headlines in a magazine, TV show, on the Internet or one of the other million of places you are marketed to? *Learn how insert celebrity name here lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. *Or learn how insert celebrity name here lost her baby weight in 60 days. *Or learn how insert celebrity name here got red-carpet ready. The story above and all of these statements NOW irritate the crap out... read more

Getting healthy is not just about exercising or eating a particular type of diet, it's about creating habits that support a heathy lifestyle. If your current lifestyle has created metabolic symptoms, illness or disease, then getting out of disease and creating health will be not only about food and movement, but it will be about creating a life that supports your body to heal.

Here is an example of what I'm talking about...

A (hypothetical) person comes to me, who has a LONG list of metabolic symptoms. This client works 60 hours/week, travels weekly, eats out almost every day--sometimes 2-3x a day, stays up late watching TV or surfing the internet--thus, their sleep suffers, enjoys a glass or two of wine EVERY night, doesn't like to shop or cook and loves being social.

All the above behaviors have contributed to the poor health of this individual. Thus, for this person to regain back their health, besides diet and exercise, significant behavior/lifestyle changes will have to occur. You have to create TIME and SPACE to get better. Which means changing the way you live your life.

If your current choices/behaviors in life have made you sick, tired, overweight, and/or unhappy then you need to take an honest look, at your entire life and decide what you can/will change to help get you back on track. Eating metabolically supportive diet is a step in right direction, but if you are unwilling to change your unhealthy lifestyle behaviors, then you are only going to get so far...

Basically, if your life is a shit storm of stress, be prepared to make some significant life changes to regain your health, happiness, and sanity back.

These may include:
1. Working less/changing jobs
2. Getting out of an unhealthy relationship
3. Asking for help
4. Turning your TV/internet off at 8PM and reading prior to bed.
5. Removing or reducing alcohol
6. Food shopping, food prepping and cooking
7. Making time for exercise
8. Making time for YOU. Meditation, deep breathing, etc.
9. Getting some sun
10. Going out less
11. Slowing down
12. Eating metabolic foods

As you can see, there is FAR more to getting healthy than just the foods. Eating a supportive diet is VERY important.
But, equally, if not more, important are the BIG life change AND the daily practices/disciplines that contribute to shifting your health.
