Your drive to lose weight is, most likely, a product of the result of your relationship with food and the outcome it has produced in your body and in your life. I, personally, analyze my familial relationships, my romantic relationships, my finances and my traumas with regards to almost every other aspect of my life. I am, not only cognizant, but hyper-aware of the cause/effect equation that continuously plays out in my life. I’ve been to therapy and read hundreds of books in an attempt tease out all of the correlations between my childhood, my past experiences and the resulting bad (and also good) decisions I have made as a result of the sum of all those parts. I did recognize recently, though, that I had never truly placed my relationship with food under a microscope. In an effort to better understand why I make the food choices I make and what I’m feeling when I make those choices (good or bad) I have recently started to look at my relationship with food in a more honest way.
The catalyst for this was my foray into the world of HCG coaching. As I spoke with my clients, I began to see a very clear pattern. They did not need a healthy fish recipe from me (although I do have a stellar one that I’ll share with you lol). They needed someone to encourage them to discover the root of their dysfunctional relationship with food and help them heal that relationship. For example, if you are capable of seeing food as a beautiful way to nourish your body and fuel you for the day as opposed to a “drug” that is used to mask hidden trauma that is too painful to face if it bubbles to the surface, you are finally free! Freedom always gives way to happiness.
My greatest joy in this journey has been the moment when one of my questions hits the spot and uncovers the key to that particular person’s attachment to unhealthy habits. We have such complex and storied lives so it is, not only difficult, but incredibly daunting to embark on this endeavor alone. The structure of the HCG Diet, combined with the one-on-one coaching, allows me the framework to help you heal your relationship with food while you simultaneously lose weight. As the weeks pass by with each of my clients, I can see the light building up in their eyes and there is no bigger reward than that! As you begin to shed the pain from your past that is no longer serving any purpose, you will also shed the weight that is holding you down. That extra weight is a physical representation of all of your pain living in your body. You deserve to be happy and the only way to do that is to release all that pain!
Wishing You A Week Of Enjoying Your Food!
Jenny As promised...Here is a link to a flavorful cod recipe that will make you feel like you are having a cheat day when you eat it!
I, myself, asked this question so I completely understand the confusion surrounding this seemingly mysterious acronym. I definitely had a hearty chuckle at my own expense when I received my answer. Human Chorionic Gonadtropin...that’s a mouthful and, also, what is that? You’re probably well ahead of me at this point and you know exactly where I’m going with this. Although I was in my 40’s, thought I knew a lot about my body and I’d given birth twice, I somehow managed to avoid learning a single thing about HCG. Ok, I know the suspense is killing you! HCG is a hormone produced by the placenta after implantation. What is interesting is that it has been discovered is that this hormone can be very successful in helping your body retain muscle mass while losing weight quickly with the diet portion of the HCG program. We absolutely love seeing these astonishing transformations at Dream Spa Medical. Personally, I love getting to know people and getting to root if why you are where you are. My goal is to help you lose weight but, more importantly, to focus on your happiness. If you’re happy, all the people you love will benefit! We are just scratching the surface here! I wanted to introduce you all to each piece of this diet program slowly so that as you move through this HCG blog you do not feel overwhelmed. You will learn without even trying. Your homework this week is to pay attention to all of the different emotions you have when you see, eat or think about different foods and beverages. This is important because exploring your relationship with food is the first step!
Wishing you a week of stellar self-awareness! - Jenny
P.S. If you have any questions you’d like me to address shoot us an email on our website with the subject line “HCG Blog”
It’s a valid question for sure! At this point in our journey together you have released your guilt and also learned about this fascinating hormone called HCG that can help you toward your weight loss goals. Of course, though, you are already bored by the idea that you are going to read about yet another diet full of rules and regulations. I hear you loud and clear! The endless diet fads drive me crazy as well. Although this program is extraordinarily structured, it is done so with your goals and happiness in mind.
As opposed to having a piece of paper, a book, a website or an app to guide you and leave you scratching your head every time you hit a roadblock, you have a real live person! The way that the program is designed and has been researched and proven over the years gives you the confidence you need in the information that is guiding you but, by far, the absolute best part of this program is having a Coach/BFF that you see every week to celebrate your wins, guide you through hard times and keep you focused on your weight loss goals and why you made them in the first place. Your HCG coach will answer your questions in a way that relates to you and your life specifically because she knows YOU. You aren’t just another customer, you are a very special and unique individual who will have your own set of vices, circumstances and overall goals for your body and your life.
So...Why Should You?? Because we listen to you, we care about you and we want you to be happy. Your weight loss will just be a sweet bonus!
Wishing you a week of appreciation for anyone who shows you love and support!
