Weight Loss and Inflammation

 Get Help! Fasting Mindfulness Program begins MAY 10th 

Do you know people, or maybe yourself, who are on a perpetual diet trying to lose weight?  They have tried the Atkins diet, the South Beach diet, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Whole 30, and the list could go on and on.  They exercise, they eat right, they count their calories, and they yo-yo up and down in weight constantly.  Maybe they lose a few pounds at first but eventually gain it back.  What is going on?  Why is there a perpetual struggle to lose weight and to keep it off?

The weight loss industry is a billion-dollar market.  People spend a lot of money trying to find the golden ticket, the one magic bullet that is going to help them lose the weight and keep it off.  Unfortunately, they are searching in all the wrong places.  The best place to look is in their own kitchen!  But it may not be so obvious unless you know what you are looking for.  

Two-thirds of the US population is considered obese, not just overweight, but obese.  The science community is studying the weight loss conundrum as well, trying to figure out what has caused the increase in waistlines, and what is the best approach to sustained weight loss.  In recent years, science is catching up with what a lot of us have known for years – inflammation is one of the major root causes of weight gain and the inability to lose weight.  Unfortunately, inflammation is hard to see for most people because it is known as silent inflammation.  But what exactly does that mean?

When most people think of inflammation, they think of what they can see on the exterior – redness, swelling, pain, heat, and possibly loss of function.  Scientists now know that there is interior inflammation, something you can’t see or feel, that can cause all sorts of diseases such as cardiac disease, cancer, digestive disorders like Chron’s, ulcerative colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Alzheimer’s, dementia, arthritis, asthma, allergies, and basically anything else ending in -itis (which means inflammation).  This is what is known as silent inflammation.  By the time you realize that you have inflammation, it may be too late.  

There are many know causes for this silent inflammation and many of them are related to diet and nutrition.  According to a study found in the Journal of Obesity, “there has not been one dietary change alone in past 30 years that has increased the levels of silent inflammation. However, there has been a convergence of three distinct dietary changes that can be termed as “The Perfect Nutritional Storm”. These dietary factors include (i) increased consumption of refined carbohydrates, (ii) increased consumption of refined vegetable oils rich in omega-6 fatty acids, (iii) decreased consumption of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids.”

According to Harvard Health, doctors are learning that one of the best ways to reduce the levels of silent inflammation lies not in the medicine cabinet, but in the refrigerator. They are now suggesting that if you follow an anti-inflammatory diet, you can fight off inflammation for good.

An anti-inflammatory diet starts with the foods that you eat (the what), continues with when you eat, and finishes with why you eat.  Making dietary changes by yourself is not always easy.  That is why we have developed the Fasting Mindfulness Program (FMP).  This is a 6-week journey that will take you into a deep relationship with your body, your mind, and your kitchen! You will be guided and led along the path as you look within, clean out, and learn how inflammation affects you on all levels. You will begin to eliminate foods, thoughts, and behaviors that no longer feel good or serve you in living healthy and well. You will begin to understand how food and feelings go together, and you will become empowered to take your health into your own hands instead of constantly feeling as if you have no choice.

Now is the perfect time to take control of your health and your inflammation.  For more information on the FMP, please visit our websites, 2sistersfasting.com or wellspringholisticcenter.com.

Listen to what others are saying about the life changing Fasting Mindfulness Program

…still undecided about whether the Fasting Mindfulness Program (FMP) is for you?

Listen as Anita and Louise give the details of their groundbreaking, science inspired protocol.

Here are some reflections from our last fasting participants:

This program is unique in that it provides information, exercises for both body and mind, and food guidance.  It is an approach that benefits the whole person, body mind and spirit, and shows that all of these are inter related.  The benefits from this combined approach can be life changing on many levels.

I always thought fasting was starving yourself or drinking powdered mixes each day.  This comprehensive program not only came with a packet explaining every detail – including delicious recipes and mindfulness exercises –  but it also had two outstanding coaches to guide us and answer our questions every step of the way.  I learned a great deal.

Sue 63

This was my second time doing the FMP and I had many new noticings: my pleasure in preparing the foods ahead of time (as I find the preparing to be part of the mindfulness); the ease in fasting this second time whereas I was terrified the first; and how the new ways of eating post-fast feel totally (well…almost) natural to me now. And yes, I did lose weight and do feel sharp…I also loved the meditations and writing aspect of the Program—they are to be celebrated as well. Signed up for Round 3 already!

Eve 64

Learning how to balance my blood sugar and control my mood swings with diet and mindfulness has changed my life! This program is one to come back to again and again.

What is the Fasting Mindfulness Program?

Old ways will never open new doors. – Anita

There are many different kinds of fasts out there:  water fasts, the master cleanse, the cabbage soup dietary fast, bone broth fasts, and any number of detoxification fasts.  What they all have in common is you can begin them at any time no matter what you eat on a daily basis or how healthy or unhealthy you are. In other words, one day you are eating McDonald’s and the next day you are doing nothing but drinking spicy lemonade (the master cleanse).

We do not believe, based on our combined 54 years in the field of holistic health and integrative medicine, that this is a good idea or game plan.

What will that actually do for a person? Will there be any lasting effects?

That depends on what you want. If you want to reset after a vacation or the holidays, a fast may be ok. You will lose some water weight and reduce your toxic load.

If you want to make a lasting change, that will not work.

We are offering a lasting change, or at least a good shot at it, with our Fasting  Mindfulness Program (FMP).

Click here to hear Anita and Louise talk about the program.

So what exactly does this FMP entail?

The program begins with a 4 week preparation phase that includes:

  1. Dietary recommendations that eliminate inflammatory foods to help your body prepare for the 5-day fast
  2. Intention setting to help you to stop and think about why you are doing the program, what you hope to accomplish, and what changes you want to make in your life once it is completed
  3. Introduction to mindfulness to help you get started with a daily practice and audio recordings to do each day
  4. A zoom meeting to meet your fellow participants and ask any questions as we embark on the 3 week preparation phase
  5. The establishment of a online participant support group that will be monitored by Anita and Louise
  6. A copy of all of the recipes needed for the 5-day fast that you can prepare ahead of time and freeze, along with a shopping list for ease

 The next 2 weeks include:

  1. The 5-day fasting mimicking mindfulness program with what to eat daily plus meditation and mindfulness practices for AM and PM
  2. A zoom party to celebrate your accomplishments and talk about your experience
  3. A week of Challenge for the top inflammatory foods
  4. Post mindfulness practices
  5. One week for follow up questions and concerns related to implementing your goals and practices

The FMP is more than just abstaining from food and drink; it is an invitation to go inward and take some time with and for yourself.  It is a complete program that will offer you benefits beyond the actual 5-day fasting period. It is designed to engage you on all PEMS levels (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual) in order to take your health into your own hands.

” As a first time FMP participant, I expected this to be challenging. But the foods were DELICIOUS and filling. Anita’s and Louise’s daily guidance was invaluable, and I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again.” Karen

We look forward to having you join us on this exciting, life-changing journey!  Sign up here now. Or call for more info 570-421-3708.

Love,

Anita and Louise
