Create Your Freedom Food Plan In Three Steps

Simple food for an abundant life.

Simple food for an abundant life.

The goal of Sugar Freedom is to give you the knowledge you need to create a lifetime eating system.

You must learn to answer this question, “What are the foods that keep me healthy and happy?”

One thing I have learned is that the answer to this question is as unique as you are.  Sugar Freedom is intended to release you from cravings so that you can rediscover your natural appetite, and learn to choose food rationally.  When we are hungry and stressed we rarely eat in a way that is consistent with our long term goals, unless we have a plan in place to make sure that we choose wisely.

If I could only give you one piece of advice on eating for fat release it would be this:

Always have some Freedom Foods available and ready to eat.

For me, that means salad greens are washed and chopped, and hard boiled eggs are available.  If I’m not willing to maintain that minimum level of preparation, something is off with my attitude, and I need to adjust it.

I separate my Freedom Foods into three categories, and I suggest that you do the same.

Category One: Fat Releasing Foods

These are the foods I choose when I want to get leaner.  Here are three foods from the three macronutrient groups:

Fats: Coconut Oil, Grass Fed Pastured Butter, Olive Oil

Proteins: Eggs, Organic Chicken, Tuna

Carbohydrates:  Romaine Lettuce, Broccoli, Cauliflower.

Category Two: Maintenance Foods

These are the foods I choose for more variety, and to prevent boredom.

Fats: Cheddar Cheese, yogurt, Swiss

Proteins: Uncured Hot Dogs, Pepperoni, Uncured Canadian Bacon

Carbohydrates: Apples, Grapefruit, Berries

Category Three:  Occasion Foods

These are for holidays, birthdays, and celebrations.

Fancy soft cheeses, nuts, dark chocolate sweetened with stevia, desserts made with Xylitol.

I believe that one problem with modern eating is that special occasion foods have replaced simple nutrition in our daily lives.  We shouldn’t expect to stay lean and healthy eating the equivalent of cake at every meal.

In order to get and maintain a leaner healthier body, we have to eat with wisdom and maturity at most meals.

What are your fat releasing, maintenance, and occasion foods?

If you can answer these questions, I can consider the Sugar Freedom program a success.

Getting the most out of Sugar Freedom

It’s day six of the six week sugar freedom challenge, and it’s time to establish our ongoing fat release eating and moving pattern.

The goal of this six week program is to learn how to get and stay healthy for life.  It’s a big goal, but we can do it.

Individuals who have a permanent solution for a healthy body learn a way of eating and moving that makes them healthy and happy, and then they keep practicing what they have learned.

You are here to find out if eliminating sugar and grains, lifting weights, and doing interval training gets you to your health goal.  If it works, you learn how to keep it up for life.

The longer I coach, the more evidence I see that this is the best method.  Here is today’s menu, which is an example of how I eat each day.

Wake up:  Freedom Tonic, water.

Morning: Coffee with organic heavy cream: 3T maximum for the day.

Breakfast: 1/2 cup organic Greek yogurt. 1 oz. walnuts.  1 cup blueberries

Lunch: 1-2 chicken thighs, mixed green salad with oil and vinegar dressing, 1 cup broccoli, 1t butter

Dinner: Repeat lunch.  Add ons: 1/2 avocado, 2T salsa.

I don’t snack because I simply have no appetite for it, and my clients and readers generally report the same thing.  If you find yourself hungry, have a hard boiled egg, celery with salsa, or an extra serving of  the protein you have made for the day.

The way to win on this program is to simply eat more of what is already on the menu if you get hungry.  Just don’t go off plan by eating sugary or starchy foods.  This keeps your appetite under control, and that is the key to your success.

Leave me any comments of questions you have so that you can get results.

Proof: You have been lied to about sugar and saturated fat.

I have suspected for years that the American public has been lied to about the effects of sugar and saturated fat on health, especially heart disease.  Finally, postdoctoral fellow and researcher  Cristin E. Kearns has uncovered documents that prove that the sugar industry paid scientists to shift the blame for rising rates of heart disease from sugar to saturated fat.

Here is a quote from the article that was published in the New York Times:

“The sugar industry paid scientists in the 1960s to play down the link between sugar and heart disease and promote saturated fat as the culprit instead, newly released historical documents show.

The internal sugar industry documents, recently discovered by a researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, and published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine, suggest that five decades of research into the role of nutrition and heart disease, including many of today’s dietary recommendations, may have been largely shaped by the sugar industry.

“They were able to derail the discussion about sugar for decades,” said Stanton Glantz, a professor of medicine at U.C.S.F. and an author of the JAMA Internal Medicine paper.”

I want to urge you to read the entire article, especially if you suspect that sugar has impacted your health.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/13/well/eat/how-the-sugar-industry-shifted-blame-to-fat.

This is about so much more than the theory that sugar consumption drives fat storage and accelerates aging.  This is about studies and government regulations that tell us to eat a certain way in order to prevent the number one cause of death in our nation: heart disease.

Yes, I cut sugar, and the grains that break down into sugar, out of my diet in order to lose weight and look younger.  I changed my diet because I want to sing and dance and look my best for as long as I possibly can.  I wrote Sugar Freedom in order to offer my solution to other people like me who couldn’t stop eating sugar and starch without eliminating it permanently.  I became a trainer and coach because I wanted to turn my cause into my livelihood.

Until I read that article, I admit that I felt some concern over studies that conflict with my experience.  There are large studies that show a correlation between eating red meat and saturated fat and shorter lifespan.  Here is my theory on that correlation:

I believe that eating saturated fat is healthy, but only in the absence of sugar, and the foods that break down into sugar.  So that means that a serving of grass fed organic beef with a side of spinach and garlic sautéed in pastured butter is incredibly healthy.  Take that beef and put it on a bun made with wheat and top it with ketchup made with sugar, and that dish isn’t healthy anymore, due to the insulin raising and inflammatory effects of the condiment and the bun.

I wish the formula for fat loss and appetite management was simpler.  It would be so easy to sell a diet that just cut sugar and not whole grains.  It would be so easy to sell a diet that told you to cheat with whatever food or drink that you wanted very week-end.  Sugar Freedom is not for the casual dieter who wants to drop a few pounds.  Pardon the drama, but for me and many of my clients, getting off of sugar and grain is a matter of life and death.

I used to be scared to share my story and my solution.

No more.

If any other diet works for you: Weight Watchers, Dukan, Ornish, that is wonderful.  Please, go ahead and try portion control and calorie restriction first.  If you absolutely have to get off of sugar and grains, then please, take the quiz on this page, try the free sample menu, and if you find that it works, join us.

Free Weight Loss Accountability Challenge

It’s been eight weeks since the floor literally blew up at Gordon Studio.

The doors are closed, much of the equipment sold, and everything I kept is put away in its place.

It has been wonderful to get back in the gym, and return to the training that changed my body and my life eight years ago.

So many times, I have pursued the latest thing in diet and exercise in order to get leaner faster.

Every time I have had to face the fact that I can’t get greedy and try to cut my calories too low, while making my training sessions too long.

In my case, that always leads to rebellious over eating, skipped workouts, and beating myself up for fooling  myself again.

Does any of that sound familiar to you?

I don’t stay down for long though.  My solution is to get back to what works:

No sugar, grains, or processed vegetable oils in my food plan, a limit of twenty grams of carbs per day until my appetite is obviously reduced, and three weight lifting sessions per week without fail.

I add bodyweight training, yoga, or dance class two times per week, and I make sure I do activities I enjoy on my two recovery days like gardening, walking with my husband and son, and training and romping with my dogs.

The one thing that guarantees that I will take all of these actions is accountability from a like minded group of individuals who are pursuing clear fitness goals.

If this style of health training sounds good to you, this is my invitation to join me starting September 6th for a four week accountability challenge in the closed Facebook group: Sugar Freedom/LBD Challenge.  The group is free to join.

Go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/972825209446395/  and click the join button in the cover image.

If you would like meal plans, tailored training sessions, or coaching by phone or Skype, please e-mail me: catherine@sugarfreedom.com by August 29th.   Tailored plans are $50.00 for a limited time, and weekly coaching is $250.00 for the 4 week session.

Let’s get leaner, stronger, and happier together.

Three Great Reasons To Get Off Of Sugar

Here are three great reasons so get off of sugar, plus a free meal plan.

There are so many reasons to leave sugar behind, and today, I’m going to share my top three.

#1.  Eliminating sugar makes you look younger.  When I finally committed to changing my health lifestyle, it wasn’t just because I was sick of being overweight.  What really drove me nuts was being asked if I was my son’s grandmother, and being offered the senior discount, regularly, at age 43.  Within six month of going sugar free, I looked so much younger, and my skin looked so much better, that I threw out all of my foundation makeup, and many of my readers report that they have been able to do the same thing, including my sister Patty, who is 5 years older than me.  How does giving up sugar make you look younger?  When the body doesn’t have to metabolize as much glucose, it doesn’t produce as many age promoting free radicals.  Also, burning sugar causes a process called glycation, which increases the visible aging of the skin.  Here is a brief description of glycation from PubMed:

Nutrition and aging skin: sugar and glycation.
Danby FW1.
Abstract
The effect of sugars on aging skin is governed by the simple act of covalently cross-linking two collagen fibers, which renders both of them incapable of easy repair. Glucose and fructose link the amino acids present in the collagen and elastin that support the dermis, producing advanced glycation end products or “AGEs.” This process is accelerated in all body tissues when sugar is elevated and is further stimulated by ultraviolet light in the skin. The effect on vascular, renal, retinal, coronary, and cutaneous tissues is being defined, as are methods of reducing the glycation load through careful diet and use of supplements.
Copyright 2010. Published by Elsevier Inc.

So when you lower your sugar consumption, you can lower your visible age too.

#2.  Eliminating sugar aids weight and fat loss by reducing appetite.  I knew that getting off of sugar, and the foods that break down to glucose like grains, had a powerful effect on my appetite.  In the four years that I have spent as a Certified Personal Trainer and Transformation Coach, I have had the rewarding experience of seeing many of my clients and readers lose their cravings for sugary starchy foods.  The result?  They lost weight without experiencing the hunger and constant “food thoughts,” that are a normal feature of typical diets.  Although most formal studies on sugar have addressed the dangers of consuming too much, one major study published in the journal “Obesity,” demonstrated that  cutting sugar from children’s diets improved their health in just ten days. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/oby.21371/abstract

#3. Reducing sugar consumption improves mood.  When my readers reduce sugar in their meals, they automatically reduce processed foods.  Why?  The vast majority of foods that come in a bag or a box contain sugar.   Eliminate sugar and get rid of foods that have been shown to increase the risk of depression.  A study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry found that, “In middle-aged participants, a processed food dietary pattern is a risk factor for CES–D depression 5 years later, whereas a whole food pattern is protective.”

The truth is that a sugar free lifestyle can make you look and feel so good that you will be too busy enjoying life to miss the junk food.  So how do you get started?  Here is a sample of the kind of menus I follow every day.  (Be sure to check with your doctor or a registered dietitian before changing your diet, especially if you have a health condition.)

March Forth!

UnknownThis is one of my favorite days of the year.

Here in the Sierra Foothills, the daffodils are blooming, and we’re so grateful for the rain, and the snow that has finally come to the mountains this year.

Yes, it can be windy, wet, and cold this time of year, but green buds hint at spring, and the time to shed our winter coats.  This year, March 4th is also Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, the day before the start of 40 days of lent.  These coming 40 days are very important for me too, as my 50th birthday comes just 9 days after Easter this year.

50 is an important milestone for all of us.  Who doesn’t assess health, family, work, and relationships at age 50?  For me, the message is of 50 is that The Time Is Now.

It’s time to be more than an apprentice or a journeyman in my life.  It’s time to become a master at what I’ve chosen to do.  Is it time for you to do the same?

For those of us who are physically addicted to sugar, and the starches that break right down to sugar when we eat them, the cheating game has to stop so that we can reach our goals and achieve peace and balance with food.  I used to dream that reaching my goal weight would cause me to be spontaneously healed from my addiction.  It simply isn’t so.  I can eat well, feel satisfied, and get on with the life I love only when I abstain from sugar and grains.  In addition, I’m sad to have to admit that my last binge was triggered by…

A Banana.Unknown-1

This is how powerful my dopamine response to fructose is.  I eat one banana, and I must have sugar, sugar, sugar, until I’m so full that I can’t eat another bite.  Back in 2010, I was completely abstinent from sugar and grains for 9 months.  I dropped all of the fat I wanted, even to that point where people started asking me when I was going to stop losing weight.

“You’re so tiny, Your face is so thin, You’re going to disappear on us!”

Those are a small sample of the comments I heard.  Then, I threw my abstinence away when I read a diet book that told me I could eat whatever I wanted one day a week, and get leaner than ever.  One problem: the book was written by a young man who had never been overweight: let alone obese and addicted to sugar and flour!  Ever since that first Saturday binge, I have had to struggle again with the call of the sweets and starches that so many of my family members, friends, and colleagues can eat.  Now I have to accept that just because they can enjoy cheat meals and cheat days, I simply can’t if I want to stay healthy, happy, and sane.

As a personal trainer and fitness studio owner, I travel to conferences and maintain contacts with amazing fitness pros who have been training clients for so much longer than my two years.  They write and develop powerful programs that get great results for their clients, and the truth is that my research indicates that only 15% of the overweight population is genuinely addicted to food in the same way that I am.  How many of you who are reading this blog are addicted?  Please take the test that you will find at this website: http://www.yaleruddcenter.org/resources/upload/docs/what/addiction/FoodAddictionScale09.pdf.  It will give you powerful insights in to the behavior that indicates food addiction.

If you don’t recognize yourself and your habits in this questionnaire, you may be free to enjoy a much broader menu of fat releasing foods than you find on Sugar Freedom.  That’s wonderful, and the truth is that those of us who are addicted have certainly had our share of sweets and starches, and it’s time to leave those goodies to somebody else who can handle them.

As for me, I have accepted that it’s time to go back to the peace and happiness I had before I let sugar back into my life.  So Sugar Freedom is no longer just for dieting, or getting ready for summer, or even for Lent.  It is a way of eating for life, one day at a time.

Now, the brief pleasure I might have found in snacks will be replaced by enjoying my family, friends, students, and the beauty of the coming Spring.

Everyone Told Me To Eat Less and Move More.

Everyone told me to eat less and move more, but nobody showed me how.

Yes, I was a chubbette.  By the time I turned 8, it was apparent that my good appetite wasn’t an asset anymore.  No, what used to be a great way to please my Mom and get approval had turned into a problem.  Thank heaven I didn’t know at that age that it would take me 35 years to figure out how to stop overeating, and five more years to work up the courage to tell my personal training clients how I did it.

Now, I’m getting ready to tell the world, or as many people as I can reach, how I got off of sugar, grains, and processed oils, and finally lost all the weight I wanted.  For keeps.

In the photo, you can see a tiny fraction of the books I read on my search for a solution to my fat problem.  These are just the books I kept, and these two stacks don’t even include all of the Kindle and E-Books I’ve bought over the past 5 years.  I kept buying diet books, and I keep buying diet books because I’m a curious cat.  I don’t just want to know that a diet works.  I want to know why it works.

Even more than wanting to know why fat gets used up and sent packing, I wanted to tell my students, and anyone else I could get to listen, how to use up excess fat too.

Now, I suspect  you know full well that a great body only comes with great training.  You also know, that only a tiny fraction of women can eat without any thought for food quality or quantity  and stay lean and vital.  How many trainers have you heard say that fat loss is 80% diet?

I say it too, because I believe it’s true.  Although a great exercise program can actually reduce appetite, and it will certainly build muscle, an eating strategy that satisfies and nourishes you while allowing you to shed fat is something to cheer about.

The students at my fitness studio tell me that what they value most is my honesty.  They want to know what it really takes to eat for fat loss and figure goals.  I’m so excited that the time is almost here to reveal Sugar Freedom.

What is Sugar Freedom?  It’s exactly what I ate to get to my ideal goal weight, and stay there for 5 years and counting.  I’m going to go ahead and call it a diet because it is intended to cause fat loss.  I think that any eating plan that is meant to change your body should be called a diet.  An eating strategy that keeps you at your desired weight should be called maintenance, and the “Lifestyle Change” that so many of us seek is found in maintenance.

The Sugar Freedom Plan starts with the Three Day Sugar Strike, which is a simple and specific, short-term diet that gets you off of sugar, grains, and processed oils by showing you how to get satisfied on nourishing, fat burning, appetite lowering foods.  The Three Day Sugar Strike is going to have you feeling full, and empowered to “walk on by” when sugary, starchy foods try to get in the way of your fat loss and figure goals.

After 3 days, you will transition to the Sugar Freedom Diet, which adds back some of the foods like fruit that are eliminated on the Sugar Strike.  Part of the Sugar Strike strategy is to give your taste buds a break so that naturally sweet foods like berries and carrots taste great again.

You will follow the Sugar Freedom Diet with “Occasion” or “Bonus” meals every 10 days until you reach your fat loss goal, and maintain it for 3 weeks, or longer if you wish.  Occasion meals give you chance to add back foods like dark chocolate, and baked goods like muffins and pancakes made with almond and coconut flour.  The idea is to give you the chance to eat super yummy foods, and see how your appetite reacts.  After 10 days on Sugar Freedom, you will know what natural hunger and a normal appetite feel like, and you will be able to make an honest decision about what “bonus” foods fit in with your fat loss goals.

Finally, you will embark on the Sugar Freedom Lifestyle.  The Sugar Freedom Lifestyle is personalized, as it contains all of the foods that make you healthy, vital, and dare I say beautiful, while  it leaves out the foods that interfere with your satisfaction, and your life goals.

My wish for you is that Sugar Freedom will help you find the ideal way of eating that gets you your ideal body, and the energy and confidence to create your ideal lifestyle.

I guess that makes me an idealist.

So be it.  If the 13 year old girl whose nickname was “Weeble” could finally reach and maintain her ideal weight after 35 years of trying, I sincerely believe that you can too.  Then we can be idealists together.

I’ve been recommending this breakfast for more than 3 years now because it keeps me full all the way to lunch time, even if I eat as early as 6:30AM.

The secret to letting go of sugar and grains is making sure to get nourished on satisfying food.  Plus, dark leafy greens and colorful vegetables literally make your skin glow with healthy color, and who couldn’t use that this time of year?

Find Your Fat Loss Goal

Last week I wrote about how you can begin to find your ideal weight with one simple measurement.

 That measurement is “Waist Circumference,” and if you’re a woman it should be below 31.5 inches for optimal health.  Guys: your goal is to get it below 37 inches.

 Yesterday, I found a fitness calculator that shocked me.

 It determines your fitness age with a formula that takes into account the time and intensity of your exercise habits, your resting heart rate, and, yes you guessed it, your waist circumference!

http://www.ntnu.edu/cerg/vo2max 

Click the link above to take the test.

I was completely shocked when my result came back at under 20 years old, but the combination of Turbulence Training and The Sugar Freedom Diet has made my waist six inches smaller than when I started my fat loss journey in 2008, and they have made my resting heart rate surprisingly low.

I want the same results for you, and this is why:

A smaller waist means improved insulin sensitivity, and a slower resting heart rate indicates improved blood flow and less stress.  These two benefits are like two streams from the fountain of youth, and they give us the energy and well-being to go out and do what we love to do.

What would you do if you had boundless energy, and you felt like you looked fantastic?

Would you travel more?  Go dancing?  Open your own business?  Volunteer at your child’s school?

Remember last week’s blog where I wrote about “Media Weight?”  Well guess what, Media Weight has absolutely nothing to do with your health.  The astonishing thinness of the images that sell products are intended to raise the bar on your desires and expectations of yourself.

The “Mad Men” in advertising know that if they can put the standard of beauty out of reach, they can keep selling  you the products and services that they claim will finally help you measure up to their ridiculous standards.

I am writing to encourage you to take happiness back from the media and the “Madvertisers” by determining your fat loss goals in terms of action instead of appearance.

Let me explain.  If contemporary standards of appearance are absurd, and they have nothing to do with heath or natural beauty, why not blow them off and concentrate on how you feel and what you do instead?

 

So the next step in permanent fat loss isn’t picking a number on the scale, no not at all.

The next step is to determine what your ideal body will allow you to do.

The body of your dreams is simply the body that has the health and energy to let you pursue what makes you happy, and guess what?

This very state of happiness with what you do will go a long way toward eliminating your desire to overeat.

So right here and now I’m asking you to write down three things you love to do, or would love to do, that would be enhanced by fat loss and fitness.

By combining a simple waist measurement with three things you love to do, you will have established a brilliant fat loss goal that will be like a powerful magnet that draws positive people, actions, and opportunities right to you.

I have seen it time and again in my students that when their goals become about health, happiness, and action the fat loss frustration falls away, and their lives take off.

Here are some specific examples from my students at Gordon Studio:

Traveling to Thailand, water skiing again, kayaking, hiking, ballroom dancing, becoming a licensed Zumba instructor, getting promoted, getting pregnant :), becoming a 4H leader, protecting and informing the community during the Rim Fire, getting that first paying job as a photographer, getting the lead in another play, and on an on!

Please note that none of these achievements are the direct result of weight loss.  They are the direct result of more confidence, and more energy.

I want you to have the confidence and energy that is yours when you eliminate the aches, pains, and frustrations of poor training, and when you leave behind the obsessions and cravings of poor food.

Let’s beat the media at their own game by being happy in spite of what they show us and try to sell us.

P.S. Did you write down the three things you would love to do? 

 

By the time you try to eat less and move more, it’s already too late.

By the time you try to eat less and move more, it’s already too late.

 You’ve missed the boat, you’re closing the barn door after the horses have left.

 What you have to do to lose all of the excess fat you want, and keep it gone forever is simply this.

 You must find a way to want less food, and crave more action.

 

It Is So Worth It.

 

Understand this above everything else.  Your behavior is motivated by your desires.  By the time you try to control your behavior Mother Nature has taken over, and she is stronger than your personal ego, and good intentions.

 You have to learn to manage what you want,and I can show you how!

 When you eliminate sugars, grains, and processed oils from your diet your appetite will tank, and you will be in charge of your behavior once more.

 Once you are well nourished, and your appetite is well satisfied instead of over-stimulated, you will re-discover the desire to move more.

 The fit, slender people who have been trying to motivate you to eat less and move more aren’t being deliberately cruel. (No matter how they behaved in Eighth Grade.)  They simply have no idea what it means to feel starved and exhausted at the same time just from eating two slices of pizza.

 What I am suggesting is that you stop trying to control how much you eat, and start influencing how much you want to eat.

 What’s the difference?  I can tell you first hand that it is the difference between fulfilling your dreams in a body you respect and cherish, and fighting your body every day for the rest of your life, until you finally just give in to the food addiction and eat yourself to death from diabetes, stroke or a heat attack.

 Yes, this is a rant from the bottom of my soul that says enough half truths, enough worn out sayings, and enough diet dogma.  There is a way to eat every day, and at every meal, that will nourish and satisfy you without causing you to eat to excess and to store that excess as fat.

 I am going to tell you what that way is.  You are going to think, “What’s the catch?”  Is there a catch?  Let me describe my solution and you tell me.  

 You are going to discover the foods that satisfy you without triggering your appetite.  And then you are going to develop a lifelong personal eating strategy that is going to allow you to keep doing  just that.

 With the Three Day Sugar Strike, The Sugar Freedom Diet, and the Sugar Freedom Lifestyle, you are going to break away from your trigger and binge foods.  You are going to get enough distance and freedom from them that you will finally be able to create your own personal eating strategy for a life of slenderness and satisfaction on your terms.

 By now, if you have read this far, I’m going to guess that you have had enough, tasted enough, and consumed enough of every kind of food to last a lifetime.  Now you know that  it’s time to put the foolishness and self destructiveness of overeating behind you.  It’s time to step away from a life that revolves around what you can eat and when you can eat it, and move toward a life that revolves around what you can create and how you can give it.

 It’s been more than five years since I gave in, surrendered, and admitted that I couldn’t have my cake and live my best life too.

 One meal at a time, I leave the cake behind, and the life I get to live instead is so much better than anything I ever dreamed.  Sugar Freedom will be ready soon, and I hope that it helps everyone who tries it to feel fantastic, look wonderful, and have the abundant energy to make their dreams come true.
