These 4 Easy Tips To Get Off Sugar Are So Simple You Might Be Overlooking Them! (Part 1 of 3)

Pay special attention if you are a woman over 40 who is trying to lose weight…

(Spoiler alert – you don’t need more willpower and it is not your fault if you can’t stop eating sugar. You are missing some critical information!)

Follow these tips and you will be on your way to:

  • Easily disappear your sugar cravings
  • Lose stubborn belly fat
  • Kick start your weight loss

“I’m mid 50’s, post menopausal, feeling stressed and carrying 15 extra pounds – on my 5’2″ frame, that’s a lot! (My cute clothes don’t fit anymore!) What use to work doesn’t anymore.  Sometimes I think I might as well just give up after menopause.  The weight does concern me but it’s more the lack of energy, insomnia and I just feel yucky. The last time I had ANY success with a lifestyle plan was with your plan Ti – soooooo, here I am!!!”

Among my female clients over 40, the biggest complaints are:

  • Having trouble losing weight (especially around the middle)
  • Feeling thick and puffy
  • Feeling tired
  • Having trouble sleeping
  • Experiencing “brain fog”
  • Feeling stressed

And with those kind of symptoms, it’s no wonder that so many people find themselves hooked on sugar (and wine)!

Simple but powerful Fixes.

You may be overlooking these four SIMPLE TIPS because they are so obvious but slipping on any one of these could be causing ALL of your symptoms!

Simple Tip #1: Get Support

There is an overwhelming amount of research on how much support can relieve stress and improve moods. If you’ve developed some habits you want to kick, start by creating a support team. Call a friend, tell your family or co-workers, post it on Facebook, make it a game or contest – get people on board with what you’re doing and give yourself someone to check in with. Start a food journal and write notes to yourself.

Make it Easy!

In coaching, we have a method called  “book ending” that works miracles. You tell someone about a specific and time sensitive goal. For example, that you are going to go bed early and have a healthy dinner. Then, once you’ve done it, you confirm with them that you followed through. Just that little bit of reaching out will make a BIG DIFFERENCE.

If you’re not sure who to join forces with, at Vitaliti Wellness, our specialty is being your instant support team! We provide nutrition programs together with support groups that  have been successfully used by thousands of people and can be an instant way for you to be on the fast track.

Simple Tip #2: Clear the Visual Field 

I can’t believe how often people overlook this tip and the research is clear. What you see and can reach easily, you are more likely to eat.  It’s so obvious once you think about it but are you making what you see work for or against you? Take a look at your desk and kitchen counters – what do you see? Are the foods you are trying to avoid staring back at you or easily within reach? The research is clear – whatever foods and drinks are in your visual field get consumed more so start using this to your advantage instead of letting it overwhelm your good intentions.

Make it Easy!

Make your visual field work for you. At dinner tonight, pick the foods in your meal that you want you and your family to eat more of  and put them on the table so it’s easy for people to get another serving. For example, you might put the salad, vegetable sides, and a water pitcher on the table. Leave all the other food for your meal off the table in another room and have no other drinks but water on the table. You will be AMAZED at how much more water everyone drinks and how much more veggies they  eat. And, you’ll all eat much less of what you don’t want to be eating. Make sure everyone pitches in with the dishes so that you are not alone with the leftovers when you’re feeling tired at the end of your day.

As for the sugary foods and drinks that you are trying to avoid? You have to get them out of your environment and stop buying them for awhile. Give yourself time to detox.

On our 30-Day RESET Cleanse program, one of the best parts is that we remove the foods and beverages that are potentially inflammatory or toxic. And at the same time, we substitute nutritionally dense foods that leave you feeling better. It’s always so counter intuitive but the foods that you crave are generally causing the cravings! When you remove them from your diet and visual field, the cravings go away very quickly.

“By Day 3 of the 30-Day RESET, I start to feel like myself again! My food cravings are gone, my stomach feels flatter, I have more energy, and I can think again. It’s like a little miracle! Once I get into the zone, it becomes so easy to follow the program. (Doesn’t hurt that I lost 5 lbs my first week!)” – Michelle 52

Simple Tip #3: Drink More Water

Another tip that is so simple you may have overlooked it is drinking plenty of water. This is VITAL.

Did you know? Even slight dehydration (1%) creates stress on your whole body – muscles, brain, organs…cells – the works! Not being hydrated  lowers the brain’s serotonin and causes cravings. 

In our 30-Day RESET Program, we suggest you drink at least 1/2 your  body weight in ounces of water (or other Cleanse-worthy liquids).

Start drinking all the liquids you need and you will be amazed at how your sugar cravings will disappear! And, your brain will work better, your energy will be higher, your bowels will function normally. Lots of good stuff here!

Make it Easy!

Use your visual field  and proximity to your advantage. Invest in a water bottle you love and carry it everywhere. Make sure you have water in your car, at your desk, and in your purse at all times. You’ll be AMAZED how much more water you drink when you have it in your visual field and in your reach.

Simple Tip #4: Get 7-9 Hours of Sleep

I can hear the groaning now. More sleep? Maybe you wish you had the time for more sleep. Or night time is your “me time” and you don’t want to go to bed earlier.

But did you know that in one study including women aged 40-60, women who slept less than six hours a night were more likely to gain 11 pounds over the course of the 7 year study compared to women who slept 7 hours a night? The study concluded that “sleep duration was associated with major weight gain among middle-aged women.”

Another study including UC Berkeley professor Matthew Walker looked at the factors in the brain that explain why  sleep loss is a serious risk factor for obesity in children and adults worldwide.

Using functional MRI technology, the study published in the journal Nature Communications found that when sleep deprived, the areas of the brain that help us make better food choices do not function as well. Adding insult to injury, when we have not slept enough, the area of the more primal brain that controls desire is intensified!

The result of not getting enough sleep? We want junkier, higher sugar foods and we are less able to access the part of our brain that would help us make a better choice.


Make it Easy!

Michael Breus, a world famous sleep expert and the author of “The Power of When: Discover Your Chronotype–and the Best Time to Eat Lunch, Ask for a Raise, Have Sex, Write a Novel, Take Your Meds, and More” suggests that you institute “The Power Down Hour” one hour before bed.

During this time, you turn off your electronics, set out your clothes and pack your bags, take a bath and brush your teeth (with low lights) and the kicker – set an alarm at your bed time so that you remember to go to sleep!

One of the keys to getting to sleep earlier that we use in the RESET is the rule of not eating after 7pm. You will be surprised that when you don’t eat after 7pm, you naturally want to go to sleep and the sleep you get is much more restorative!

KETO OS Chocolate Swirl tastes like a tootsie roll and I love topping it with whipped coconut milk for a delicious start to my day!

My simplest way to enjoy Keto OS Chocolate swirl is to shake it up with 8 ounces of  unsweetened Califia Farms Toasted Coconut Almond Milk, ice and 8 ounces of water. Keto OS Chocolate Swirl has a mild chocolate taste – not super sweet. It  tastes like a tootsie roll or a chocolate malt – DELICIOUS!

My favorite splurge (which is all good on the Keto Cleanse) is to top off this delightful treat with some whipped coconut milk. So good! If you need to add little more fat, shake together 1 serving of the Chocolate Keto with 1/3 packet of the Keto Kreme, ice, water and the Toasted Coconut Almond Milk  and then top with whipped coconut milk. Yummy!

What’s New About this Version of Keto:

  • Vegan, gluten-free, and dairy free
  • Zero grams of fat (no MCTs)
  • Easy to digest! Say goodbye to any tummy troubles. Added prebiotic (a food source for the good bacteria in the gut) helps your good bacteria get stronger and helps to prevent gastro intestinal upset.
  • Added Ketogenic Amino Acids make this a GREAT pre-workout drink to increase energy and strength during your workout and speed recovery after.
  • aid in muscle recovery.
  • Added  Short Chain Fatty Acids (butyric acid) which provide digestive support (1) and helps reduce inflammation (2). Also have been shown to help with insulin resistance and weight loss (3)!
  • Optimized ratio of ketone salts for faster peak  and more sustained ketone levels throughout the day

A Happy and Healthy Gut? It may be tougher than you think!

Stomach Upset?

Needing to Pass the Tums?

group of friends with guitar having fun on beachEvery year my family goes to the beautiful beaches of the Outer Banks, NC and we spend the week together in a VERY big house. There are 17 of us including my parents, brother, his kids, my grandmother, aunts and uncles, cousins…a real crowd.

Interesting enough, each year, someone brings a giant Costco-sized bottle of Tums. They sit up on the counter in the kitchen. And, many of my family members partake of them complaining of stomach upset and heart burn.

What is it about our beach trip that causes stomach upset for so many people?

Well, maybe it’s the 1-lb bags of Peanut M&Ms that rotate through the freezer, or the cocktail hour on the beach at 5:00 pm, or the late hours.

Most of us have experienced a link between eating and drinking the wrong foods and feeling heart burn, bloat, gas, a stomach ache or some issue with our stools (constipation, loose stools, etc.).

But, did you know that your depression, anxiety, thyroid disorder, Hashimoto’s, rheumatoid arthritis, headaches, and so many other conditions could also be worsened or even caused by an imbalance or an infection in your gut?

Running our RESET and Zippi classes and the many other Cleanse programs I’ve developed and run over the years, I’ve seen participants report over and over again how various symptoms improve, symptoms that you might not realize are connected to what  and when you are eating, the quality of your sleep, the beverages you consume or don’t consume, and how you handle stress. Optimizing these factors are the pillars of our RESET and Zippi program.

Heart burn or reflux, gas, bloating, stomach aches, constipation or loose stools are the most common types of digestive complaints, but we have also learned that:

  • Fatigue
  • Adrenal fatigue or burnout
  • Brain fog
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Breakouts
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Obesity
  • Various autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s, thyroid disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, and Lyme’s Disease as well as many others

Can all be caused or exacerbated by an imbalance or an infection (or both) in the gut!


And what if your fatigue or thyroid condition was actually being caused by a problem with your gut?

We’ve been exploring the wild world of the “Gut Microbiome” as it is known in scientific communities as part of our RESET PLUS and Zippi PLUS series with the help of Dr. Jane McCormick.  (Register Now for the upcoming Lafayette RESET Plus > (Members can attend free and bring a guest)

Since the mapping of the human genome, researchers have become aware that the human body has a gut microbiome that consists of about 100 trillion microbial cells – outnumbering the total number of human cells by a factor of 10 to 1.

Double Wow!!!

The Gut Microbiota encompasses the entire community of microorganisms that live within us. These microorganisms include not only bacteria but also fungi and archaea.

What is fascinating is that research shows us that “the gut microbiota has co-evolved with humans and can be considered an organ of similar size as the liver…”

This relationship between the microbiota and the human being as the “host” is providing rich information that is completely changing the way we think about how the body works and the influence of the gut on various diseases and conditions.

Here is some of the Gut Microbiota research we have been reviewing:

Hashimoto’s improved by eradicating H. Pylori

A 2004 study shows a link between Hashimoto’s and H. Pylori infection (an infection in the gut). In this study, there was a decrease in thyroid autoantibodies after the H. Pylori infection was eradicated. This research is exciting because it suggests that some of the disease states that we have been suffering with may actually be symptoms of a gut condition that can be treated sometimes through diet but also through looking for underlying infections.

Twin Study Links Obesity and the Gut Microbiome

A 2009 study on twins showed that the gut microbiome of the obese and lean twins were similar but different with less biodiversity in the microbiome of the obese twin. What this suggests is that interventions targeted at changing the microbiome of obese individuals will be on the cutting edge of obesity research.

The Link Between the Gut Microbiome and the Development of Autoimmunity

Three lines of evidence are presented that support the notion that, as healthy infants approach the toddler stage, their microbiomes become healthier and more stable, whereas, children who are destined for autoimmunity develop a microbiome that is less diverse and stable.

Anxiety and Depression Presenting with Irritable Bowel Disorder (IBD)

Lyme’s Disease

There is lots of research linking the presence of various psychological conditions like depression and anxiety to Irritable Bowel Disorder (IBD) and to Lyme’s disease.  In addition, the microbiology of Borrelia burgdorferi (part of the Gut Microbiome) is striking in terms of why Lyme disease can be relapsing and remitting and why it can be resistant to normal immune protocols and standard antibiotic regimens.

All of this research points the way to inform us that infections or imbalances in the Gut Microbiome may need to be corrected to address various disease and suboptimal health conditions.

Luckily, the research is coming in by the second, and we now have a host of new laboratory tests and other ways to get to the bottom (pun intended) of the condition.

Our RESET PLUS and Zippi PLUS series are designed to provide an overview of some of the most cutting edge research and to bring it into context with what you are practicing through our programs.

In our new Mastery Membership Program, which is coming soon, we will be exploring in much greater depth the path to actually synthesizing the outcomes of the new research and practicing various extensions of the RESET and Zippi curriculum to support a truly “healthy gut”.

If you’ve been wondering about how to integrate leading edge research into your nutrition and lifestyle, then Mastery is for you!

Stay tuned for more information on this amazing topic.
