If you didn’t see my first video on this subject, please watch it HERE
Basically, I, as well as many, many of you competitors, group-ex instructors, marathon runners and long term dieters, have caused our bodies to STOP doing what they are supposed to and even start reacting opposite of natural; meaning– calories in/calories out doesn’t mean shit!!
Its all about hormones people and any doctor who tells you other wise doesn’t know WTF he/she’s talking about. This is REAL, it sucks, it takes away your sex drive, your motivation, strength, energy, and you gain weight by hardly doing anything, so you diet more, exercise more, all the while becoming exhausted, frustrated, and depressed. (sound about right?)
Sighhhh… well, I’ve been dealing with it for 2 years now, doing a LOT of things wrong (basically trying to “diet” my way out of it) and NOW I’m finally listening to my body, working with people who know their shit… and its SLOW, I’m learning patience and learning that there is more to ME than just the outside…. and I’m ok with not being lean, small, and getting comments about being so fit. I’m enjoying more of LIFE, eating out more, being a little more relaxed about things, and guess what?? I’m OK!! AND I haven’t gained more weight or blown up like I feared! In FACT– as soon as I stopped working out and eating what I wanted (because I thought “Fuck it, I’m getting fat anyway”) I stopped gaining!!
After working with some professionals on a plan for a few months, I’m actually DOWN about 6 lbs too (which is awesome to lose weight when you are eating more and literally not working out at all)

The drugs that I WAS taking after going to half a dozen Doctors (and didn’t feel a damn bit better):
DHEA— thanks to this I had a hair grow from my chin. EFF that!
Prozac— yeah… and I was still depressed as shit.
Now— I am only taking 1 prescription– Armour Thyroid and a bunch of supplements, but feel so much better. The doses are not listed, please refer to a professional to see how much and why you might need
Krill Oil–helps repair cellular membranes and enhance communication between cells
Rhodiola— helps with hormone function
Candida Cleanses— I went thru many of these to help with digestion, gut issues and sugar cravings– I continue to take Kyolic 103 (a blend of herbs to help keep candida down)
Vitamin B Complex— to help with energy and metabolism
Vitamin D3— many health benefits
Probiotic— to help with gut flora
Cocoa Powder— to reduce cravings and increase dopamine

William Wood– www.northernutahhypnosis.com— I can’t say enough about how much this helped. I’m not taking prozac, paxil or any other anti-depression or anxiety medications anymore.
