Beth's Bio Ask Beth

The Foundation of Wellness

The foundation of any wellness program must revolve around people learning how to have food support health instead of destroy it, reducing excess amounts of fat on the body and supporting any bio-chemical deficiencies with effective nutrition. Everything else is just a band-aid.

There is no question that being at your ideal weight significantly lowers your risk for heart disease, diabetes, some cancers, and other chronic illnesses. Fat around the belly area, known as visceral or intra-abdominal fat, is particularly linked to elevated levels of cholesterol, insulin, triglycerides and blood pressure; all markers for the development of disease conditions.

Feel Your Feelings and Stop Self-Sabotaging

Having difficulty allowing and dealing with our feelings is a common problem that can contribute to our tendency to self-sabotage by making unhealthy choices in all areas of our life. The anxiety created by resisting feelings and allowing them to get stuck, rather than relaxing into them so that they may flow through us and naturally pass, can cause us to crave distraction and comfort in things that do not serve us. Ultimately, those poor choices only contribute to our unpleasant feelings, creating a vicious cycle of continuously feeling bad and endlessly seeking relief.  And of course, a tendency to get stuck in bad feeling has nothing but negative impact on our relationships, our ability to work most effectively, and our capacity to feel joyful and at peace.

Breakfast Smoothie

I know — we’re all busy in the morning! For most people, full breakfasts of omlettes, whole-grain pancakes, etc. are for days off or leisurely weekends. But that doesn’t mean you need to skip THE most important meal of the day. If you don’t have a well-balanced meal in the morning, you’re setting yourself up for sluggish metabolism, sugar imbalances, and cravings that will make it impossible for you to stick to your eating plan.
