How To Prevent Overeating & Feeling Miserable

How to prevent overeating & feeling miserable 

It’s that time of year again….for over eating! The holidays coming up means food and lots of it.

I bet you are telling yourself how you are going to be good and not overdo it again this year or maybe you have just given up on trying to eat healthy and feel defeated.

While I don’t suggest stuffing yourself like the turkey on the table, I do believe food was meant to be enjoyed and you should be allowed to indulge a little.

So how do you enjoy all this delicious food without overdoing it?

We have some tips for you to help you enjoy your favorite foods and some recommendations for when you go too far.

1. Have a plan.
When you know you are going to be at an event where there will be a lot of really rich and calorie laden food, make a plan ahead of time on what you want to eat.
Don’t tell yourself what you “can’t” have, tell yourself what you “can” have.

Eat slowly, enjoying the different flavors.
Laugh and talk with others while you are eating.
This slows you down giving your stomach time to register it’s getting full and can tell your brain.
Wait some time before you eat dessert after dinner. You will eat a lot less.

Like pie? Then have a slice of pie and eat it mindfully.
Eating mindfully means being in the moment of eating it, not just shoving it in.
When you eat mindfully it takes less food to satisfy you, so you eat less.

2. Drink lots of water.
When you drink a lot of water it helps to fill your stomach making you feel fuller.
It also helps to flush your symptom out of inflammatory type foods.
Squeeze some fresh lemon juice in there for a perk up and great cleansing action.
Sip on ice water before, during and after your meal.
Try to avoid soda pop. This is empty calories.
If you are going to consume sugar and calories, let it be your favorite dessert.
And please stay away from diet drinks. Artificial sweeteners actually cause more weight gain than sugar.
If you have read my other posts, I explained how this works.

3. Eat light a day or two before and after your big meal.
If you eat mostly just fruits, veggies, lean protein and drink protein drinks at these times, your body will be able to handle the one day of indulgence without expanding your waistline.
It still comes down to calories in, calories out, so if you eat lightly the other days of the week, you leave more room to freely indulge on that day without feeling guilty.
Plus, if you are eating lightly a few days before, your stomach will shrink so you will actually eat less on that one day you do decide to eat more calories.

4. Exercise.
I don’t recommend training for a marathon the week of your big eating day, but I do recommend exercising every day.
Walking is perfect.
If the weather allows it go for a walk after dinner with family or friends. This helps with digestion and burns some calories.
Weather not too inviting? Then walk on a treadmill or at a mall.
Just having to park in the back lot on those frenzied shopping days can really help you reach your steps walked goal!

5. Don’t fret about it.
So you ate half the turkey, a pound of stuffing, a pie or two and the only thing that started out healthy, but ended up not - was the green bean casserole.
So what. You will survive.
Just stand back up, brush the roll crumbs off of your shirt and tell yourself you are more than what you eat.
You value your health and you will get a jump start on the weight loss by adding more fruits and veggies in your diet the next few weeks, drinking more water, getting more active and maybe even do a healthy cleanse.
You vow to take care of yourself and that includes not beating yourself up over food!

What supplement will help with bloating and that over full feeling?

Let me share with you one of my favorite products I keep handy when I know I plan on indulging in a meal that may be a bit much for my system – EZ Gest

EZ Gest is truly awesome.
It helps ease that, “Oh, I ate too much!” feeling.
It helps relieve bloating and gas.
So stock up on some today and be sure to share it with your guests. You don’t want a house full of miserable people acting like slugs, so share with them some EZ Gest and help them feel better fast.

Another one I recommend to take is the probiotic Optiflora. Your gut will love these little guys and they are very helpful at getting your gut realigned and happy.

A Special Offer To Veterans & Their Families

Often times the pay of our military is less than desired. Add in the pressures of relocating often and possibly raising a family can make it difficult to make enough. Many military personnel and/or their spouses have a side gig to earn extra money.

This can often mean starting a home based business, but that can be hard to do with the lifestyle they live.

Because of their unique circumstances the business would need to be mobile, easy to do and be acceptable by the base commander. 

They also need a product that is consumable, meaning that the product once used up would be repeatedly bought.

You can only use so many purses & jewelry. Not that there is anything wrong with selling them! It’s just you constantly have to find new customers.

With Shaklee your customers are repeat buyers – buying what they already use every day, making Shaklee very marketable to the military family.

Add in all the great ways to earn money and you have the perfect, portable business.

And now you can get started at no cost!

Shaklee welcomes our veterans to join us and create their own Shaklee Effect™.

To honor our veterans, Shaklee offers a special Veterans Promotion of a free distributorship (Distributor Welcome Kit, $49.95 value) to veterans, including those in active military service, to thank and honor them for their service to our country.

This means you can start your own business with no start up cost!

There is no expiration date for this offer at this time. Proof of military service is required.

We are so thrilled to hear about how our Shaklee Family is using this special offer to build their business and help those in our military to do the same. 
Check it out...

"My daughter who is a business builder herself and also is in the Air Force got the special for her boyfriend who is also Air Force.  He is spreading the word about Shaklee to his family and friends in Puerto Rico.  Also my daughter just sent in proof of military employment for another Airman last week.  It's a great thank you to our current military and veterans!" - Julie Curtis, Senior Director, OH

"I've been using this offer as an opening to talk with people.  I say, ‘Were you or your spouse in the military by any chance? Shaklee is currently offering free Distributorships for military and Veterans.’ I also have suggested members who are Veterans upgrade to Distributors.  One of my longtime Members upgraded via the Veterans program and his group volume is already around 500 per month.  He is very excited about the business." - Reid Bryce Robbins, Associate, MN

Neuropathy Testimonies

Neuropathy –“Saw Results After 3 Days”

I don’t know anything about neuropathy personally, but what I do know is that when the Vivix testimonials came out I read one about neuropathy. 

My brother in law is a Type 1 Diabetic. He has been since he was 18 and has had neuropathy forever. When he read the testimonials about how Vivix helped that, he immediately became a member and ordered Vivix. He had taken Neurontin for a long time.

As soon as he started (taking Vivix) he said after 3 days his neuropathy was gone. He could not believe it. So now he takes no Neurontin, just Vivix and has talked to a lot of people about taking Vivix.

Hope this helps.

Sherry R.

Neuropathy – Paul “Now Virtually Pain Free”

First let me start by saying I have been a type 1 diabetic since I was 17, I am now 52 so that’s 35 years being insulin dependent. 

I have had some diabetic complications, but the worst would be neuropathy, where your nerve endings don’t seem to “talk” to each other in the correct way. 

First, it makes you feel like your foot or hand has fallen asleep, but the pain gets to feel like someone is sticking thousands of pins in your hand or foot. 

The easiest way to explain the pain is when your hands are real cold and you run them under hot water, but the pain lasts 24/7. Well I was put on a drug called Neurontin, which has some very negative side effects.

Dan talked to me about Vivix while I was in Cincinnati for Riverfest last labor day, and said our mother was taking it. 

I never gave it a second thought as I never believed “natural” medicines could outperform prescription medications.

While visiting my mother recently, I discussed Vivix with her and she gave me a bottle to try, Keep in mind that with Neurontin I still had Peripheral pain, but with Vivix within 6 DAYS the pain was almost gone. I slowly weaned myself off the Neurontin and have been virtually pain free.

I have other diabetic complications that my body is responding positively to Vivix and may have more testimony in the future.


Neuropathy – Mike “Pain & Swelling No Longer In Feet”

I have been diabetic since 1996. I have neuropathy in my legs and feet. On the days at work when I have to be on my feet for 5 hours or more, I would leave here limping because my feet were so swollen I could barely walk. I would have to go home and elevate my feet and legs for an hour or two just to be able to function in the evening.

I started taking VIVIX in 2008 and within about 3-4 months I noticed that when I left work I did not have to go straight home – I could go grocery shopping or run errands and the pain and swelling was no longer in my feet. 

I can’t say that the VIVIX gave me more energy per se but rather I describe it as more endurance. I won’t go a day without it!

That being said, a good diet, the right exercise for you and good supplements have shown to help people feel better while they are trying to improve their health issues.
It just makes sense that a healthy diet means a healthier body with the side effect of feeling better.

Always see your doctor when changing your diet and exercise so he/she can monitor your progress and adjust your medications accordingly.

The Trick After The Treat

Now, right after Halloween is when we see a surge in ear infections, colds, flu and other respiratory infections in children. 

The link is the increase intake of sugar.

Sugar lowers the immune system making us more susceptible to illness and infection because there just aren't enough "good guys" to fight off the bad guys.

Plus, the ammo they use - the good nutrients from good nutrition, is missing. 

The best way to keep your children and yourself healthy in addition to good handwashing is to eat healthy and exercise. 

Candy may be overflowing in our houses right now, but counter it with healthy choices. 

Teach kids it's OK to have a sweet treat now and then as long as they counter it with some of Nature's candy like fruits and fun veggies. 

Teach them that the good food strengthens the good guys so they can fight the bad guys and the good food helps the body to be strong enough to handle the bad guys candy onslaught that makes the good guys weak. 

In addition to eating more fruits and vegetables, Probiotics, Fiber, B Vitamins and drinking lots of filtered water helps to counteract the damaging effects of too much sugar.

You can also stash some of the candy loot to occasionally indulge at different times later. This way your kid won't overdose on the sugar. 

Help your kids stay healthy for life by teaching them the skills they need to make healthy choices on their own. 

It's not always easy, but it is always worth it.

Health Tip - Antibiotics & Probiotics

In today's health tip I discuss what to do when taking antibiotics and probiotics, and when to take them.

Here is the link to the probiotics I recommend to our clients - 


This is a system of both the Probiotic- Optiflora and the Prebiotics, which are essentially food for the probiotics. 

If you are not used to taking a good probiotic, I recommend starting with only the probiotic capsules for the first 30 days, then slowly adding in the prebiotic powder after that. 
If you take the prebiotics too quickly while your gut is trying to heal, it could cause some uncomfortable feelings in your gut. 
So you will want to take it slow and use only the probiotic capsules at first.


Please contact me for a consultation and I will be happy to help you decide which route is best to take for you.

Happy gut health!
