How To Lose Weight Fast Without Doing Any Exercise

How To Lose Weight Fast Without Doing Any Exercise

Losing weight is one of those topics that someone you know is always mentioning. Losing weight can be an uphill battle, or one plagued by yo-yo diets that cause you to lose weight fast, only to later put it back on even faster.

You can lose weight fast without doing any exercise.

It is commonly thought that calories control everything in terms of weight loss. Here is the shocker: calories do not matter; it is all based upon your environment and how well energy flows in your body.

Our bodies are made up of predominately water, and water conducts energy. However, the environment that we live in today has changed from 100 years ago. Today, we have all sorts of electronic devices and electromagnetic forces that affect how the energy is conducted through our bodies.

So what does this mean for you if you want to lose weight?

It means that we have to eat more whole foods with real ingredients, drink high quality non-fluoridated water, and make sure that we are minding light cycles and circadian biology.

1.  Start Your Morning Off Right

You have always heard that breakfast is your most important meal, which is true. Breakfast starts to get your leptin back in check in your brain. Leptin is the key hormone for appetite, energy expenditure, and all hormonal functions in your body. If you are leptin resistant (i.e. overweight), then you more than likely have a series of hormonal problems at play, which can all be fixed by getting leptin in check.

Eat a high protein breakfast (50 grams) of fish and/or meat within 30 minutes of waking alongside plenty of fat (coconut oil, bacon, duck fat, butter, avocado, olive oil).

2.  Continue to Eat Seasonal “Real” Food

Real food is exactly what is sounds like. It has ingredients that you understand, and it is currently growing in your area right now. These foods include vegetables (eat low carbohydrate vegetables and you will stay full longer) and fruits. Looking for recipes? Check out Civilized Caveman Cooking.

Make sure that you are eating plenty of high quality seafood and grass-fed meats.

3. Stay Away from Grains, Dairy, and Added Sugars

This includes all gluten products, breads, pastries, rice, cereals, whole grains. Added sugars equal carbohydrates, too. Food that is higher in carbohydrates elicits an inflammation response in your body causing your body to not lose any weight. Dairy can also cause inflammation.

4.  Eat Your Last Meal At Least 4 Hours Before Bed

Remember your late night snacking? It’s gone. Giving yourself plenty of time to eat before bed will allow your body to digest food and your hormones to get in balance in your brain. It may be hard, but isn’t living life something that you want to do?

5.  Turn Off the Lights at Night

Artificial light allows us to do so much, but also hurts us because it makes it more difficult for our brains to tell time (the difference between night and day), which causes insulin resistance and all sorts of other health problems. When it is dark outside, it should be dark inside. At night, transition from using blue and white lights to using amber-colored lighting and candles. It makes all the difference and will also help you be able to sleep through the night. It’s known in the medical and science community as “circadian biology.”

6.  Do NOT Snack

Eat three meals a day. You may get to the point where you are not hungry for lunch, which is fine, but do not skip breakfast. If you seem to get hungry, make sure that you eat more fat at your next meal. These fats include avocados, bacon, duck fat, butter, coconut oil.

Fat is your friend and does not make you get fat.

7.  Drink TONS of Spring Water or Reverse Osmosis Water

Water is key to making sure your body continues to conduct energy. The type of water that you drink matters. Fluoridated water (most tap water in the United States contains fluoride) actually destroys the blood barrier in the brain, causing more havoc on our bodies and allowing toxins to get into the brain. Spring water and reverse osmosis water from a non-fluoridated source are what you should be drinking. Drink at least 2.5 liters a day. The more your are around electronics, the more water you should drink.

8. Go Outside and See the Sun

The sun is actually good for us. It provides us with more energy in our bodies. The sun’s light is transferred into photons, which our bodies read as electrons (i.e. energy). The more energy you have, the less inflammation you have, the more weight you lose, and the better you feel.

*Bonus*: If you want to speed up your weight loss, start doing cold thermogenesis. This involves cooling down your body in order to save its energy and not lose it to your environment, and can be accomplished by taking ice baths. Be careful, and watch out for your skin temperature. If your skin starts to get white, it’s time to get out of the cold water.

Exercise is good for you; however, it is not the key factor when you are trying to lose weight. It is all based on the energy equation. The more energy that you have, the healthier you will be.

If you are tired of trying every other diet under the sun only to be left disappointed, this information should help. It’s not about the calories; it’s about the energy. I follow this protocol myself and have transformed my health over the past 8 months. It will make you feel the best that you have ever felt in your life.

12 Benefits of Meditation That Improve Your Body And Mind

12 Benefits of Meditation That Improve Your Body And Mind

As a mediation teacher, I am constantly confronted with these two questions regarding the benefits of meditation:

1. Why can’t I enjoy the benefits of meditation continuously?

I ask back: Is it maybe because you see mediation as a technique, performance, or some exclusive activity? The answer is: yes!

Or, because your mind is constantly evolving on the past negative attachments and traditional habits? After careful thinking they answer: yes, probably!

Although meditation is very simple and challenging at the same time, in the above mentioned case, it’s not easy to benefit from meditation, especially when approached with the idea that it has to be learned, studied, or applied. Meditation is to be seen as a natural, mental cleansing process that happens on a basis of awareness on a moment-to-moment experience. When that takes place, the benefits of meditation are continuous.

2. What is the purpose of meditation?

The purpose of meditation is to accomplish a level of consciousness for mastering the mind and uniting with the finest, deepest, and subtlest part of yourself as a being.

It is a conscious process of observation of the mind—helping the meditator to understand the structure of its mind and the quality of its content. During this process, countless benefits of a physical, mental, and spiritual/philosophical nature arise for the meditator.

Meditation as a Fixer and Benefactor

In this article we’ll have a look at the primary and the ultimate benefits of mediation, which improve your body and mind at the same time. For the sake of clarity, readability, and tangible experience, I have separated the benefits into three groups.

You can change just about anything you don’t like about yourself (psychologically, as well as physically) through meditation. However, this is only possible with a specific approach, when your brain allows the benefits of meditation to do their work.

This means not to interrupt the benefit with other thoughts, but to let their effect implement itself in your body and mind. This approach is crucial.

The following exercises will make you feel the benefits of meditation instantly, but the continuity of the benefits of meditation on your body and mind depend on the discipline of your brain, how you manage external stimuli and your thoughts.

Less Physical, More Psychological

Even though the practice of meditation is more psychological and less physical, the first benefit we’re going to experience is both physical as well as mental.

This benefit happens literally immediately, right at the moment of meditation. It is the essence of mediation basically.

The First Benefit of Meditation

The first benefit of meditation is twofold:

  1. Improving inward attention (sharpening the mind)
  2. Relaxation of the body

Let’s do it right now. This benefit consists of only one step, and it is very simple to perform. It goes like this:

Advertising

Sit still and pay attention to your exhalation.

That’s it! Technically, the whole journey into the world of mediation begins here and nowhere else. And right here, you benefit from this step in the following way:

When you pay attention to the flow of your exhalation (gentle, deep, effortless exhalation), your body begins with the process of relaxation instantly (your heart rate slows down, your nervous system calms, and tension in your muscles is relieved).

When the nervous system calms, your mind calms down, and, more specifically, less thoughts are produced by your mind. How, exactly? By applying one of the most valuable mental skills—attention—the mind follows the breathing and has no space and time to generate any other thoughts. Only when the attention goes off the breath, other thoughts are constructed, and the mind is accelerating with thought production again.

Keeping the First Benefit Effective and Ongoing

Here you apply the approach of not letting the relaxation and attention process get interrupted; rather let the effects of these benefits implant in your body and mind as deeply as possible.

This is to say, the instant relaxation and inward attention happen at the same time when you follow the flow of your breath. Repeating this process—creating a constant rhythm out of the breathing and the attention—you create a process of meditation.

Keep your attention on the flow of your breath and see how the calmness of body and mind begin to rule your present moment. The longer you stay connected to your breathing, the stronger you’ll feel the benefit. Start with 3-5 minutes at a time without doing anything else, and increase to 10-20 minutes and onwards.

Can you think of a better, simpler and quicker exercise that can relax the body and improve attention in this way, at this speed?

This benefit takes you to the second one.

The Second Benefit of Meditation

While still working with the first benefit of mediation, you slowly start to see the second benefit of mediation, which is fourfold. I call it the major value of mediation:

  1. Energy (physical and mental strength)
  2. Observance
  3. Peacefulness (stillness, and space of mind for deeper observation)
  4. Patience

Peacefulness is the source of a blissful life. The energy is the fuel to express that blissfulness. Whatever we want to accomplish in life we need: 1) Physical and mental strength, 2) Observance of that energy, 3) Peacefulness—the calmness and stillness that creates space for freedom of being and creative thinking, and 4) Patience for the process of accomplishment.

You can only get creative in thinking and boosted with physical and mental energy when you get in touch with the deepest levels of yourself—when you harmonize your mental and physiological activities. How do you do that? Let’s try it right now:

This step involves the observation of the two separate movements of your breath. After paying attention on your exhalation, you have prepared your body and mind to really see and feel what true peacefulness and true energy means.

1. Energy

Keep your attention on your inhalation (inhaling gently, deeply and lightly) and feel the new energy (new oxygen) flowing in your body. The inhalation is the symbol for aliveness and vitality. It is the the primary act that connects the baby’s body with the outside world after coming out of the womb[1]. Each inhalation is a new opportunity for your body to revive, regenerate, and renew itself.

2. Observance

The observance comes during the process of meditation, enabling you to see the physiological benefits of introducing new energy to your body. Use that benefit by utilizing its effects, and create deeper observation into yourself. With every single inhalation, this observation will enable you to generate even more energy, mentally and physically.

3. Peacefulness

Keep your attention on your exhalation, and feel how, out of the relaxation, peacefulness is spreading throughout your whole body. The exhalation is the symbol for relaxation and peacefulness. Only through meditation can you realize what absolute peacefulness means.

4. Patience

The meditation delivers the previous benefits to you immediately and opens up the possibility for many other benefits and great virtues. A specific one to mention, which is essential for reaching the ultimate benefits of meditation, is patience. If you have experienced the aforementioned benefits, it means that you have invested a certain amount of patience into mastering yourself and your mind.

The Ultimate Benefits of Meditation

Patience is a key quality when it comes to the ultimate benefits of meditation.

Since the mind is the tool that reveals everything, mediation is the method for the proper utility of the tool.

The above mentioned benefits of mediation lead to the ultimate benefits of mediation—qualities that depict what makes a human being human. As you dwell in a meditative state of being, the following benefits begin to emanate:

  • Diligence: the persistence for righteous effort to reach an intrinsic value; inner strength.
  • Temperance: to express self-control and show excellence in managing the physio-biological and mental necessities
  • Courage: using righteous effort and braveness to look into the weaknesses of yourself and at the hardship of your life, endure it and patiently overcome the obstacles
  • Loving kindness and Compassion – a capacity to care, understand, and tolerate other people’s state of being, wishing them freedom from suffering.
  • Wisdom: the moment when you feel that mediation gives you the feeling and the knowledge that what you do relating to life and practical affairs is just.
  • Equanimity: that puts you in a state of composure, and you experience an ongoing blissful state of being.

These are the 6 ultimate benefits of meditation that put your body and mind in a state of health and balance.

Final Thoughts

Mediation exists to put order in your mind and awaken the best of you, to reconnect you to your goodness and your inborn intelligent capabilities.

Meditation is the window to your true Self. It gives you a panoramic view of your heart’s greatness. It shows you the true meaning of love, freeing you from the dungeons of ignorance and despair. The power of meditation dismantles the evil that’s trying to cloud the beauty of your heart.

Your heart, body, and soul are the bridge over which the challenges of life frequently carry their heavy load. Meditation is the support of that bridge. Make use of that support.
