Top Two Natural Products to Stop Binge Eating

Top Two Natural Products to Stop Binge Eating

Do you crave sweets after your meals and end up binge eating? Do you keep eating sweets even after you feel full? Are you on a strict diet but have a particular kryptonite that you just can’t seem to resist? Well then, you should keep reading.

In this day and age when just about every product claims to be either “natural” or “non-GMO”, we are left with too many good choices. There’s even a term for it called “overchoice”, also referred to as “choice overload”. Psychologically, making a decision becomes impossibly overwhelming due to the many potential outcomes and risks that may result from making the wrong choice. We’re not going to do that today. Instead, we will look into only two different natural products to help you avoid binge eating.

Seynani to the rescue to avoid binge eating sweets!

One way to lose weight is to limit your food intake, especially limiting high-calorie sweet foods. Seynani safely and temporarily blocks the ability to taste sweetness. Sugar without sweetness is like sand and chocolate without sugar is bitter.

If you are having a bad day, there is nothing chocolate can’t fix- or so we have been conditioned to believe. If chocolate were really the cure for a bad day then baker’s chocolate should work just as well. The fact that baker’s chocolate is not sold in every checkout lane should tell you that no one enjoys it plain. The reason is because chocolate without the sweetness from sugar is bitter and no one wants to eat bitter chocolate. Seynani’s ability to block sweetness turns addicting sweets into undesirable food.

Seynani consists of clinically-studied ingredients with two of the main ones being the most powerful Ayurvedic herbs Gymnema and Holy Basil. These herbs are originally from India and have been used as herbal medicine for hundreds of years.

How does it prevent binging on sweets? After your meal, but before dessert, spray Seynani on your tongue and sweets become something you won’t crave. You will have concluded your meal and pushed the plate away. You will be telling yourself, “I’ve had enough”. This YouTube vlogger shares her experiences with Seynani so that you can see how it can be used in your daily life.

Glucomannan to the rescue to avoid binge eating food!

Glucomannan is a natural, water-soluble dietary fiber extracted from the Southeast Asian roots of the elephant yam, also known as konjac. Glucomannan/konjac flour or powder is highly absorbent and can absorb tremendous amounts of liquid.

How does it help with binge eating? Glucomannan helps you feel fuller for longer periods of time. Because it can hold so much water and form a gel, glucomannan helps us to feel more satisfied from eating only regular meals. This means that we can eat less yet remain more satisfied for longer periods of time. A study of people with Type 2 diabetes (Grill 2010) showed that key hunger signals sent by such appetite-stimulating enzymes as ghrelin decreased after taking a meal with glucomannan added to it. Because it expands in your stomach by absorbing liquid, the body gets tricked into thinking that you’re full and feels satisfied. Glucomannan has zero calories and yet is able to make you feel full. Best of all, Dr. Oz recommends it, too!

It is interesting to see how these natural supplements can help us eat less without any artificial ingredients. Imagine going to lunch with your friends and you decide to have a hamburger (approximately 354 calories), french fries (440 calories), and a soda (210 calories). That’s a total of 1,004 calories. With Seynani, you can substitute the soda with water since you have no desire to drink an unsweet soda. With Glucomannan, you’ll be so full that you might not finish the hamburger and you definitely won’t have the fries. If you’re like most Americans, this is your typical lunch five days a week. You will be consuming 3,250 fewer calories in a week. If you use these supplements for three months, that’s a whopping 39,000 calories saved! Just think about it. That’s eleven pounds in three months. This is a great way to lose weight and kickstart a healthy lifestyle. The best part about it is that it’s very easy to do.

7 Morning Rituals to Empower Your Day And Change Your Life

7 Morning Rituals to Empower Your Day And Change Your Life

Most of your reality is not a given. It is shaped by your expectations, beliefs and thoughts you have formed about it. A big chunk of these beliefs and expectations are encoded into habits you integrate in your daily life.

Yes, some of these habits are formed unconsciously and can be counter-productive or limiting but conversely, you can consciously form positive habits that will transform and empower your life significantly.

This is a powerful point of departure that more and more people are becoming aware of. The most common trait of highly successful people is the recognition of the power they have in co-creating their reality through changing the way they think, believe or expect their reality to be.

One of the most effective ways of changing our belief patterns is through practising and maintaining daily rituals. Ancient traditions had clearly understood the power of rituals in reinforcing habits and changing the way we see and create our reality a long, long time ago.

Once again, if you look into the life history of any highly successful individual, you will find some form of ritual in their daily routine. Some of these rituals may seem banal or eccentric but don’t be deceived by appearances. Rituals are one of the most effective self-empowering tools freely available at the practitioner’s disposal – that is, you!

Below are some the easiest yet life-changing morning rituals you can do every day. Of course, you can have your own afternoon or bed-time rituals but morning rituals are extremely effective in empowering your day since they help you charge yourself before it all starts.

1. Gratitude

Feeling gratitude and appreciation for those little signs and moments of joy happening in your life is probably one of the most overlooked or underestimated rituals. It is a perfect morning ritual to start your day on a very positive key.

The real power of gratitude is that it makes you pick out and focus on what is working in your life – what is in tune with your being as a whole. It is selectively positive. It reinforces happiness and positivity by shedding light on those awesome things, small or big, that grace your everyday living.

Quite often, we just pick out the pain points, the problems, the bottle necks, whatever it is that is not working in our life and causing friction, anxiety and unhappiness. This is like constantly rewriting the script of your life with a negative or tragic overtone. Your subconscious mind follows faithfully that script you write whether it is a negative or positive one.

So feeling gratitude is undoubtedly an immensely empowering ritual. Start your day by being thankful for those positive things that happened the previous day or throughout the week. It could be something really petty and small. It doesn’t matter. You might be grateful for an unexpected visit from an old friend, a beautiful encounter with a kind stranger, a new opportunity or whatever it is that shines your way. Do it every morning and see what happens during the day.

    2. Writing Down Your Most Important Tasks

    This is a very practical ritual. Start your day by identifying and writing down from one to three of the most important tasks you need to complete during that day. These tasks are ones which support important long term goals that are aligned to your purpose, passion or general direction in life.

    For example, if writing a book or building an online community are important long term goals which are aligned to your personal growth, then an important task for the day might be finishing off a particular page or two of the book or coming up with fresh content ideas for the online community.

    What is important with this ritual is that you identify these tasks and complete them as early in the day as possible. Of course, you will have other tasks apart from the ones you will write down but, these are tasks which can be tackled later or batched up and carried out in one go.

    Writing down your most important tasks in the morning helps you focus your day and life according to what is essential. It helps you prioritize and manage your time better. As a result, you simplify your life by applying your focus and energy on what really counts for your overall life progress.

    3. Affirm Your Goals in Writing or Drawing

    This is similar to the previous idea but different in its application and purpose. Writing down your most important tasks of the day is a way to have a concrete structure of action to follow. Affirming your goals, on the other hand, is a very powerful way of crystallizing your vision and goals in life into your everyday mental space.

    Writing down or doodling your goals on a piece of paper helps you externalize those goals by giving them form. In return, they are reflected back in your subconscious mind and thus, reinforcing them and integrating them more wholly.

    An example of this would be writing down “I am achieving greater success in my career” or “I am becoming healthier and stronger through my exercise.” Notice the present tense being used as a way to tell yourself you are in the process already. Remember the life script we subconsciously follow? You are basically modifying the script to be applied now in the present.

    Drawing or doodling can be equally, or even more, effective  (if you are more of a visual person) as it summarizes a graphical representation of your goals. For example, if your goal is to build a new house or live in another country, you can draw the house or draw things that symbolise the country you want to live in.

      4. Practice Qi Gong Exercises

      According to Chinese philosophy, Qi (pronounced ‘Chee’) means the life force or energy inherent in all things;[1] and Qi Gong is the practice to cultivate and circulate that energy in your body. This may sound esoteric or complicated but actually, Qi Gong is really a set of simple exercises aimed at increasing your health and vitality.

      Advertising

      There are numerous forms and practices available for free through the online media. As a morning ritual, I recommend following these simple exercises by Qi Gong master Lee Holden:

      5. Drink Hot Water with Lemon

      Simply add a slice of lemon in a glass of hot water and drink one every morning. This is a very simple ritual I follow faithfully every morning.

      Apart from being a good source of vitamin C and a great way of flushing out toxins in the morning, it balances and maintains the PH levels in the body, reduces pain and inflammation in joints and knees and helps nourishing brain and nerve cells. Here are some more benefits of drinking hot water with lemon.

      6. Rise Earlier

      The practical advantages of waking up early are obvious.

      For example, you gain more time for doing exercise such as walking, cycling or Qi Gong as suggested above. You gain more time to be with yourself to reflect, meditate or, more importantly, carry out the other morning rituals.

      So rising early can be seen as a foundation for all the other morning rituals. Many, like myself, find that they are more productive in the early hours of the day.

      Also, various studies have shown that there are many other benefits from waking up an hour or two earlier in the morning. Sleeping early and waking up early helps the body attune with the earth’s circadian rhythms thus, promoting more restorative sleep. Other curious results from such studies show, for instance, that early risers tend to be more optimistic and can anticipate and solve problems more efficiently than the norm.[2]

      7. Listen to Uplifting Music

      Uplifting music can have a direct impact on our mood, especially in the morning. It charges us emotionally and tunes us into a more positive outlook of the day ahead.

      Most people wake up to music or listen to music as they commute to work. Very often, however, they tune in to a radio or randomly pick a playlist from their device. Being more selective and conscious of the music you listen to in the morning can have a great impact on your day and life in general.

      It’s funny how we try to choose music according to our mood. For example if you are feeling down or disappointed by something, you are more prone to listen to music that reflects that mood – for instance blues, sad songs or downtempo music. This has the effect of reinforcing that mood. What you need to do is the exact opposite and retune your mood by listening to music that beats to a different tune than that mood.

      Try to listen to more uplifting music in the morning even if, or especially if, your mood does not dictate so.
