Resolutions, Dieting and the Future of Nutrition!

WOW, just WOW!

What an amazing week of listening to the Hay House ‘Start the New You now’ webinar. And what a treat to have good enough internet to be able to do so!!! We are now in the US Virgin Islands and using a 4G modem, which enabled me to listen to the whole week’s webinar onboard the boat – isn’t technology amazing!!!

I learnt so much and with the focus being on resolutions many of the conversations were about dieting, as this is just about the most common resolution that people make on January 1st each year. Often within the month, the diet has gone by the wayside and the resolution is broken…..

Why is this?

It is a well known fact that when most people lose weight, not only do they put it all back on after their diet, but more besides. Many of the conversations addressed this including Jon Gabriel, who created The Gabriel Method and is well known for losing over 100kg naturally without dieting, and Jessica Ortner of The Tapping Solution who uses EFT Tapping to help her clients lose weight and keep it off.

Interestingly I wasn’t going to listen to either of these discussions because I have lost over 10 kgs myself this past year, the first 5 I actually lost without dieting! Then I came across The Fast Diet and decided to incorporate the principles into my lifestyle, as it didn’t involve too much of a change, simply ‘fasting’ on 2 days a week. By doing so I lost the extra kilos so I didn’t think I needed to listen to either Jon Gabriel or Jessica Ortner, however I am glad I did, because both conversations cemented my belief in the power of the mind and of course that brings us back to the founder of Hay House herself, Louise Hay.

Back in 1976 when Louise Hay introduced positive affirmations through her little pamphlet ‘Heal Your Body’ people thought she was kooky (in her own words!), however that book was the start of something enormous for Louise, incredible healing for thousands of people all around the world and has led to Hay House being the finest and biggest publisher of self-empowerment books in the world.

But even more exciting is the latest research by Dr Mona Lisa Schultz (MD. PhD), which scientifically validates that affirmations do actually work! Dr Mona Lisa has teemed up with Louise Hay to produce a book called ‘All is Well: Heal Your Body with Medicine, Affirmations and Intuition’.

I will be sharing more from this wonderful webinar over the next few weeks, including more about how EFT Tapping has been helping some of the people affected by the Sandy Hook school shooting in December 2012 and also how Roz Savage managed her mindset when she became the first woman to row across the Atlantic!

However I am also excited to let you know about another upcoming webinar next week ‘The Future of Nutrition Conference‘, hosted by The Institute for the Psychology of Eating.

P.S. Just a quick note – in my earlier blog post Making The Commitment I mentioned that blogging would be high on my agenda for January! Whilst I haven’t blogged as much as I intended, the reason is that the Hay House webinar took up a lot of my time, however this has only provided me with so much more exciting information to share with you in the coming weeks! Stay tuned
