losing weight fast
Newport Skinny Tea is designed to help you with your food cravings, but sometimes cravings persist... generally when I dig deeper, its because someone is trying to drink NST and keep eating a really poor diet that does not support their body at all, which creates what I call an awful CRAVINGS CYCLE...
If you think that your food cravings are only a result of your emotions, urging you to eat foods that are not good for your health then you need to think again. Nutritionists suggest that there is a lot more to food cravings than just emotional urges. According to nutritionists your cravings can also be the result of fatigue and stress that tend to lower the blood sugar and nutrient levels in your body. Your body is crying out for NUTRIENTS to balance itself.
This, in turn, causes your hormones to go haywire and you end up eating foods that contain high amounts of sugar to try to feel better. While, these foods can satisfy your cravings at the time, your body won’t be getting the essential nutrients that boost energy levels and repair itself. And when your energy is zero, you just end up eating more junk food. However, there are ways you can tackle your junk food cravings and get out of the negative craving cycle you may be stuck in:
Nutritionists suggest that food cravings usually last for only fifteen minutes and if you can convince yourself to wait for these fifteen minutes, the craving is likely to pass away. You can distract yourself by going out for a walk, reading a book or doing some light exercises that might compel you to eat something healthy after. Worst distraction: TV, which may have commercials designed to entice you to eat more. Best distraction: journaling about what is bugging you!
Knowing the Trigger
Before you start eating unhealthy foods it is important understand factors that trigger your appetite in the first place. For example, if you feel like eating 2 bags of chips, gulping it down with 3 cans of coke after work then you might be under a lot of job stress. Poor consumption of water can also trigger your thirst for carbonated drinks. You may also be skipping meals, to tackle your triggers it is important to have your meals on time along with eating natural fruit sugar to calm your cravings. It is also important that you deal with your stress rather than suppressing it, deep breathing, meditation, exercise and our Sunset Beach Relaxing Tea can help get your stress levels under control.
Keep a track of when your food cravings hit you if you notice that these have become a regular occurrence with you. If you notice that these occur after dinner around 8 pm at night then probably you owe these to an emotional factor. Figure out why you have been under stress lately, it takes some honesty but in the end you will become free of your emotional stress eating. Ultimately, you need to put yourself first, making sure that you are getting what you need from the people around you to feel supported.
However, if these occur somewhere around 3 pm then it may be a sign that your body’s nutritional needs are not being fulfilled. Look into your diet and try to figure out what is lacking, are you consuming the right amount of protein? Are eating fruits and vegetables? It is important to find the right balance in your diet, remember the hormonal influence of each meal lasts a maximum of 5 hours, then you have another chance to get it right. Don’t waste one minute feeling bad about what you have eaten, this will only lead to more stress, just plan to get it right the next time.
Allow Yourself to Indulge Occasionally
Telling yourself that you will never eat another Dorito or Krispy Kreme as long as you live will probably backfire on you, if you truly love eating a particular junk food, the best way to keep it under control is to plan to eat it occasionally, which means once a week or less. If you know that you are completely helpless when certain foods are in the house, only buy it when you go out, and do not bring it into the house. At holiday celebrations, make sure you fill up on the healthiest options first, then let yourself have whatever treat you want. One meal is not going to ruin you so enjoy your family’s celebration, just don’t let the indulging become consistent for you.
Sincerest wishes that this helps you during the holiday season!
Drink your tea Daily!If you are using the 21 day Newport Skinny Tea, you should be drinking your daytime tea 30-60 minutes before your breakfast and lunch! Try to limit coffee to one in the morning before your tea, as it can affect your blood sugar levels and cravings.If you are using additional teas, use them when you want to, make sure that you are not having too much caffeine during the day. If you feel shaky or wired, its too much. Remember, you can adjust the strength to suit your individual needs.I find it easiest to set the alarm on my phone for my daytime tea. Make sure you drink enough water as well.Mindset :Changing limiting beliefsThis is one of the MOST difficult psychological exercises to do honestly, very few people will take the time to honestly look at what state they are living in daily, if you do it you take the time you will have a key to changing your life.
Where do you live emotionally on a daily basis? In depression, guilt or sadness? Disappointment? Anger?First step: You must identify the emotional climate you live in now, what you have come to believe is acceptable for you.Second step: Identify what is the antidote to this emotional climate?If you live in fear, courage is the antidote. Right now you are living in an emotional pattern or trying to get to that place that emotionally feels like "home." Whatever you believe is the "right" way to act based on your experience with environmental forces, generally you use that to guide you on a daily basis.If you are not finding the quality of life you want in the emotional state you live in, you can learn to live in a state that will produce the results you want. It requires figuring out your emotions and really being honest with yourself.You need to find the antidote to your unwanted state, and then you need to practice your new chosen emotion until you shift into feeling like that desired state is your new normal state. This is the way you create new patterns, this is the way to changing your life.Emotion is created through motion, remember you are in control of your emotions and motions, the easiest way to change your emotion is to start changing your motions.
In other words, Just Do It. Do the physical thing to change your state. Give your time to a charity, go for a run, clean out your closet or call up that old friend and ask them to lunch.Review your list of goals multiple times daily! Now link the emotional state those goals require you to live in. This isn't easy work, but you can do it! When you identify the state you want to live in, you will see how your current state is holding you hostage!Diet

My friend and I have a term we coined, "Ideal Self" for all those things we would do if we lived up to our Pinterest boards, never had to sleep and won the lottery tomorrow... you know, working out in barely there bra tops everyday on the beach at 6am with our hair and makeup looking on point... yeah... enter real life. Having an amazing assistant/housekeeper/personal shopper that organizes our entire life around each season. Or throwing gorgeous dinner parties every other week like we're in the cast of RHOC... including amazing cat fights, designer dresses and someone crying in the limo outside... (but not us!)Never mind that these events don't happen except on reality TV, this did not stop our constant referencing what ideal self was doing at all times of the day and how we were not living up to that potential.We thought we were so clever with this made-up term, but its seems someone had already thought of this, Sigmund Freud. So, it turns out its a pretty huge source of dissatisfaction for us humans, that we can't really live up to our version of an "ideal self."And advertisers know this, they bank on the knowledge that you long to do more, have more and be more at any given moment. AND there's absolutely nothing wrong with growing, but most people get stuck in the thought that they can't possibly have THAT ideal self life, so why bother... back to Pinterest.So this summer, I learned about a tactic that the elite business people of the world (and apparently Beyoncé) use, its making an ALTER EGO for yourself in order to bypass that "Ideal Self" world conundrum we get stuck in. Our alter ego is part of us, that we don't really accept as our own yet, we fear we cannot become something, yet we long to do it anyway.We long for it because...Its part of OUR story, its a KEY to our growth, It will CHANGE everythingand you know it, deep down.SO big girl pants up, here we go, its time to create an alter ego for yourself.Beyoncé called her alter ego SASHA FIERCE. And she did things shy Beyoncé couldn't yet do, she was fierce and sexy and she owned her stage. And now Beyoncé doesn't need her anymore, Beyoncé owned that part of herself.What three words does a FIT, SKINNY, SEXY YOU need to be?What's your NAME when you embody these words?What does this alter ego do that's different then you, where does she go and who does she go there with? What does she wear? Maybe you can give her a signature item so when you have this item you instantly transform- what is it?
This seems like a weird idea, until you try it, and then it becomes very liberating, because you don't have to be weighted down with the baggage of your own identity.Before you say "That's not me" try it, just try it and see what might happen! I'd love to hear about it!JenniferXOXOPS: Keep drinking your tea, move a bit more before you eat and include green vegetables at each meal. Don't make it a big deal, just do it.
I'm not a therapist, but in therapy there's a question often used to help clients know when they're on the right track, its "What will be happening when you know you are succeeding?"Here's a normal story I hear, Greta has a goal to "look good" again, she decides to really go at it for a month and tries all the things her friends tell her to do and somehow she finds that she looks basically the same when the month is over. She's disappointed that she doesn't look any better, she feels like she's wasted her time and her money on a new gym membership. Regret sets in and she feels worse now than before.She may indeed be living a healthier lifestyle and changes might be taking place that she hasn't even noticed, because she hasn't been LOOKING for them. She has less headaches and pain, she sleeps better and maybe she's eating more vegetables. But those weren't her goals, she wanted to "look better" and she thinks she failed, so she gives up.Here's some examples of things that may be happening when you are on the road to success:
What will be happening for you when you know you are succeeding?Many people make it about the number on the scale, and that can be helpful, but in just as many cases it can be harmful.
- Eating more vegetables and fruits every day.
- Getting some kind of regular physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day.
- Drinking alcohol only on the weekends.
- Eating low-fat popcorn instead of chips,
- Ordering a side salad instead of fries
- Being able to walk up a flight of stairs without gasping for breath
- Looking forward to drinking tea instead of soda
- Feeling more energetic and hopeful
Your job today is to find out what are those things that will be happening in your life when you are on the right track. Try hard to make these goals things you can control and feel, its nice to get attention, but that is out of your control and if you don't get it maybe it will be something that deters you!Take time to really notice the things that you identify, its something that most people completely overlook and it can be a HUGE factor in your continued success!I'm proud of all of you who are stepping up and beginning this amazing journey of self transformation! It's going to be INCREDIBLE!XOXOJenniferPS: if you no longer want to receive emails, please unsubscribe by clicking the link at the bottom of this email, if you "complain" I cannot see it or do anything to change your subscription, you must do that!

5 TOP SECRET WEIGHT LOSS TRICKS
Below, you will find out the top secret weight loss weapons that are used by expert trainers and nutritionists to get their clients burning more calories in less time, now you can use them, too!
Blood Sugar Regulation
Berries are showing to be responsible for regulating blood sugar levels after meals. Studies have shown that a key antioxidant in berries turns off the activity of an enzyme which is responsible for disintegrating starch into sugar which means fewer simple sugars are released into the bloodstream. This plays a vital role in weight loss because insulin shuttles excess sugar into weight loss. Using berries to replace refined sugar and flour found in desserts and pastries can be especially effective at controlling blood sugar, plus they are high in fiber. Finish each meal with ½ cup of your favorite berry!
Fanning the Flame
According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, combining regular exercise with fish oil supplements can increase the activity of your weight burning enzymes. Look for brands with at least 300 grams of the fatty acid EPA and 200 milligrams of fatty acid DHA that are ultra refined and medical food grade. It’s best to eat these capsules before exercise and after 6pm as that’s when your body can best utilize them. As always, you must check with your doctor prior to using new supplements to see how they will affect your unique health.
Sneak In Fiber
As long as you are eating natural foods, you will reap the belly-filling benefits of both soluble and insoluble fibers. Fiber overfills your stomach by making you feel stuffed so you don’t snack. Fiber lets you enjoy a full stomach with minimal calorie intake. It keeps you fuller for longer and when combined with a teatox can significantly help you cut back on calories without feeling deprived. Best bets for fiber: fruits and veggies, plus whole grains if you tolerate them well. Remember 5-10 bites per meal of carbohydrate will keep you from overeating them!
Drink 8 to 10 Glasses of Water and Tea
This is the easiest way to shed those extra pounds. Try to drink 8 to 10 glasses of icy cold water and tea per day as they boost your metabolism to warm them up to body temperature. A glass of water or tea with lemon is a recipe for successful weight loss as pectin in lemons reduces food cravings and so does tea with flavor. Drinking one glass of water or tea daily will help you consume 27,000 fewer calories per year. Drinking liquid prevents muscle cramping and keeps the joints lubricated. If you really want the water and tea to help you lose weight, you should follow the 8 a day regime suggested by most nutritionists.
Antioxidants in food protect cells from damage which can lead to premature aging and disease. New studies from the University of Florida have shown that people who consume more antioxidants weigh less. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals that are naturally formed in the body as a byproduct of calories being converted into energy. Foods that are high in antioxidants are low in calories, thus making them ideal for weight loss. They seem to help diminish inflammation which is a root cause of obesity.
These ideas may sound simple, but when you use them together, especially when you are eating clean and moving smart each day, you will see an amazing transformation.

I just wanted to congratulate you for finishing the August Tea Challenge, I know you're feeling fantastic!! What an AMAZING step for you to take towards better health & feeling great!! I hope you're so proud of yourself! Amazing!
September is a month to wipe the slate clean, many people are going back to school or have kids who are, life gets back to normal and you have a bit more freedom to do things we want for ourselves.
So I want to continue on the last email I sent, about loving yourself enough and give you this little gem, when you love yourself you actually are giving others permission to love you, too.
When you take care of yourself you are showing that you are valuable and worth caring about, to yourself and to others.
People look to others in relationships to find out if they are valuable and worth caring for, no one can give a sense of internal worth to you, you must find it inside by sharing your purpose with the world.
This is a very deep, personal topic for many of you, I know I've received some letters and comments lately about how many of you are dealing with these issues. Thank you for being so brave to share your journey with me, and thank you for listening to me give my advice, I truly do feel like helping others is my purpose!
Please keep sharing your story!!
You help others when you do!
