Achieve Your Goal Weight

Posted by admin - Under: Blog

Recently I went to St. Louis, MO for our “Family First Union”.  After 67 years, my mom along with my sister, found Mom’s birth family! (This is an amazing Dream to Destiny story that I’ll write about in detail soon.)

When I first saw my sister and mom I instantly noticed they lost quite a bit of weight. Of course I asked, “How did you do it”?  They both followed a simple and practical eating plan for a few weeks. When they told me about it, I was amazed because this is almost exactly how I ate from 1990 to 2005 maintaining my ideal weight and dress size the entire time. After having two babies, my body went right back down to its ideal weight including a flat stomach. It wasn’t until my kids were in elementary school that I gained 7-10 unwanted pounds. What happened is that I began eating some of the “kid food” they would eat – pizza, cheese burgers, french fries, cheese fries, hot dogs, etc.  Not only that, I would over eat which stretched out my stomach making me desire larger portions to feel satisfied.  The plan below helps us shrink our stomachs down to our natural sizes so that we can only eat small portions of food several times per day. In the fitness world the experts say that our physique is largely (70%) due to our diet. Since 1986 I’ve consistently worked out three to four times per week. I’ve had this extra layer of fat on me because of poor food choices and eating too much. Not anymore!

Now I’m following this practical plan (below) designed by a certified nutritionist for four weeks to lose 10 pounds of fat. Additionally, I’ll be re-training my subconscious mind for success by following our “Dream Program Method” in Appendix B of “Dream to Destiny”.  If you want to lose several pounds of unwanted fat as well, please join me in following this two-prong approach!

The Weight Loss Plan:

– Eat the same or slightly modified items listed below for two weeks to jumpstart (“shock”) your system.

– Have one “re-fuel” meal per week where you can eat anything you want, except fried foods.

-After two weeks eat the same thing for breakfast and lunch. At dinner, you may have any lean meat (fish, chicken, turkey, beef tenderloin, etc.) with a steamed green veggie or green leafy salad with light dressing.

-To lose one pound per week you have to burn approximately 3,000 calories over a seven day period. If you exercise three to four times per week in addition to eating this way, you’ll lose approximately two pounds (or more) of fat per week.

-Eat slowly when you’re physically hungry. Stop eating when you feel satisfied. Never over eat!

-Do cardio exercises (walking, jogging, biking, swimming, etc.) for 30-45 minutes on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Then do three sets of abdominal exercises – 35 repetitions in each set.  You burn more fat with this combination.

Breakfast:  Whey Protein Shake (1 cup water, 1 scoop Whey protein, 6 frozen strawberries, 1 tablespoon Liquid Flax Seed Oil, 1 Equal)

Lunch:  Turkey Sandwich & Baked Chips (Up to 6 oz. lean turkey meat, whole wheat bread, light mayo, mustard, onion, lettuce, tomato & 12 baked chips. Condiments and veggies are optional.)

Snack:  12 Raw Nuts (almonds, cashews, etc.)

Dinner:  Chicken & Brocoli or Salad (6 oz. chicken breast, 2 tablespoons any sauce to top – optional)

Snack:  Non-fat yogurt (1 cup of any flavor)

No calories after 7:00 to 8:00 pm (3 – 4 hours before bedtime)

A Patent Pending Method of Manifesting Dreams

Fit 4 Life (Part 2 of 3)

Posted by admin - Under: Blog

Continued from Part 1 of Fit 4 Life

The mental and spiritual exercises outlined in Part 1 of this blog will give you extraordinary power and strength to carry out all that is contained here in this blog, part 2. You learned how to mentally achieve fitness for life. Here you’ll learn how to physically train your body to be forever fit.

Log your Food, Drink & Exercise Daily

Each day, make a complete log of all the food and drink you consume. Write down why you’re eating and the time. Do this until your goal is achieved. (The only good reason to eat is if you’re stomach is empty and you’re physically hungry.) I chose to count fat and protein grams because it’s easier and faster than counting 1000-1200 calories per day. My daily fat and protein maximums are 30 and 80 grams respectively. (The protein grams are based on lean body mass, or muscle.) It’s good for women to shoot for 20 protein grams four times per day. (Do not have much more than this per sitting because the overage turns to fat.) If you have excess fat to lose, you can eat fewer calories than normal because your body will feed on the extra fat. Also, choose the amount of calories based on your goal weight.

Drink 64 ounces of purified/filtered water per day. All this liquid curbs your appetite and cleanses your body. If you habitually drink soda or other sweetened drinks, make every effort to replace these with water. If you must have caffiene, unsweetened tea (black or green) is good – especially green tea because of its anti-oxidant qualities. If you must use sweetener, small amounts of stevia, organic agave or honey will do. Desire for sweetness is an acquired taste, and denying it will reduce, then eventually eliminate your cravings for it.

Log your daily exercise, be specific and hold yourself accountable (“45 minutes of cardio, lower body, abs” for example). Record when, what type and how much exercise you achieved. You’ll be amazed at how regular exercise improves your attitude and outlook.

Log your portion sizes as well. Most of us eat too much food in one sitting. Resolve to enjoy small portions, the size of your hand or fist. Interestingly, if you eat more frequent, smaller meals, you will naturally speed up your metabolism. (You can often find a recommended portion size on the backs of most food packages.) If you’re eating out, set aside half or more of your meal and decide to take the rest home to enjoy another time. JFDI – Just Focus & Do It – for 30 days and see what happens to your figure.

(In our next blog I will share my actual daily log as an examply for your convenience.)

Food & Drink

A little bit of Nature’s sugar (fructose) each day is good, such as raw fruit, sorbet, a tablespoon of honey*, maple syrup and the like.

The natural size of your stomach is the size of your fist or hand. If you over eat, your stomach is stretched out. It only takes a few weeks to shrink it back down to its natural size. Wait 20 minutes (set a timer if you want) after each small meal because it takes this long for your stomach to tell your brain that it’s satisfied. When your brain registers this you will not desire any more food.

Enjoy lean proteins (white fish, salmon, turkey, skinless chicken breasts, legumes, eggs, egg whites, etc.)  and complex carbohydrates (brown rice, rice pasta, whole grains, quinoa, red potatoes, Ezekiel bread, rice bread, etc.) whenever possible.

The human body is made mostly of water. This is one reason it’s best that your diet consists of 75% fresh raw fruits and vegetables. These natural foods from the earth are also made mostly of water. Have fruit in the morning on an empty stomach because it will go right through you helping your digestive system in its elimination process. Additionally, this is why it’s best to drink 64 ounces of good water per day. All these habits help you eliminate daily, a key factor to getting and staying thin.

If you need fuel at the gym or before working out, eat a piece of fruit. It digests quickly giving you energy for your exercises.

If you’re going to drink wine, it’s best to drink one glass of red wine with your dinner to help with digestion. Too much of it lowers your inhibitions, making you likely to make poor food choices. White wine and other alcohol are high in sugar and empty calories. It is actually best not to consume alcohol at all.

Eat slowly, savoring each and every bite. Put your utensils down between bites so that you can focus on and enjoy those you’re dining with. When you’re eating alone, do your best to eat the same way you would if you were eating with highly respected guests.

Wait 20 minutes after each serving before allowing yourself to believe you’re still hungry.

Have your complex carbohydrates and fat grams early in the day so that you’ll burn them off throughout the day and into the evening. If you do this, you’ll be less hungry later and be satisfied with a lean protein, salad and vegatable for dinner.

If you get hungry between meals, have a handful of raw vegetables as a snack – such as carrots, celery or cucumber. This will satisfy your hunger and your desire to munch.

Don’t eat after 7pm. (Or don’t eat anything four hours before you go to bed.) This simple habit alone will help you lose weight quickly.

It’s good to shock your body once per week eating whatever your heart desires. Make sure this is only one time per week, though, and do not over-eat.

NEVER OVER EAT! Make it your goal to be able to say, “I never over eat.” This is a reality for most young children before they develop bad habits. Watch them. Ask them. They stop when they’re full and won’t even think about eating more.

Exercise:

Use workout videos and/or cardio classes at the gym 5 to 6 days per week. Do 45 to 60 minutes of fat-burning cardio on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning, 4 to 6 days per week. (Make sure your heart-rate is in its fat-burning zone based on your age and fitness level. This range is posted on most cardio machines at health clubs. Additionally on this equipment you’ll find heart-rate monitors to ensure that you’re staying within this range.  (If you don’t have this monitoring technology, fat-burn is reached when you can speak energetically and comfortably without panting for air.) Get your heart-rate up faster by warming up (with cardio first) for 12 minutes, stretch, go straight to your calisthenics for 30 to 40 minutes then back to your cardio for 10 minutes with a 2 minute cool down. While you’re doing your calisthenics your heart-rate should be up the whole time if you keep moving. (This is my new workout – very efficient.)

It is very important to shock your body by changing your exercise routine every 6 weeks. Log this on your calendar to ensure that you do it. Otherwise your body will get immune to your workouts and stop responding. Have you ever seen people who are faithful going to the gym but they don’t even look like they workout? This is one of the reasons why. (Another reason is that they may be over eating and/or making poor food choices.)

Abdominal exercises – four sets of 25 repetitions, four days per week. Focus on strengthening & tightening up your core as you do every calisthenic or cardio exercise.

Do calisthenics (using your own body weight) 4-5 days per week, 2-3 sets of 25 reps for each muscle group. (I focus on losing fat before building muscle because I don’t want to look bulky.) Google “Calisthenics” to find out all the wonderful exercises that you can do to help you get lean such as crunches, lunges, push-ups, etc.

Tap into power from Above with this prayer. “Lord, give me the strength to follow this plan with whole hearted devotion, trusting you in everything! Thank you in advance for the victory. All glory and praise to you.”

Be your Best You! Make the Best choices for your Best life.

Here’s “Fit 4 Life Part 3”, your “Forever Fit Log”.

*”It is not good to eat too much honey…” Prov. 25:27 (NIV). If you’re addicted to sweets, just wean yourself down to  approximately eight grams of natural sugar per day. Have tiny amounts of God’s candy – honey, fruit, maple syrup, etc. Did you know that sucrose (refined white sugar) is similar to cocaine? The more you have, the more you want. Form a new habit of eating small amounts of fructose (fruit sugar), slowly savoring each morsel. This should satisfy the cravings.

Fit 4 Life (Part 1 of 3)

Posted by admin - Under: Blog

Recently one of our readers asked me how I transformed my body from flabby to fit in one month then maintained it for over 20 years. (I mention this briefly in our best selling book, “Dream to Destiny.”)  Now, I’ve decided to share this part of me – my “Fit 4 Life” recipe – in this blog. (This is not to be confused with the “Fit For Life” book by the Diamonds.) You can change your body too. Currently I’m working on a new book, “Forever Fit” that teaches this plan in its entirety.

First of all, you need to know that I’m not one of those naturally thin people with a high metabolism. Starting at age eight I began to struggle with my weight because I was not athletic and I was an emotional eater who over-ate. Having an apple shaped body ran on both sides of my family. I refused this destiny. I was determined to have an hourglass shape and I did it through “The 3 Powers” (God, Mind & Passion).  In “Dream to Destiny” I teach about “The 3 Powers” and our patent pending method of manifesting dreams and/or goals.

Once my goal physique was achieved, I became a fitness model and certified personal trainer. My “Fit 4 Life Plan” is a spiritual fitness program that was created after many years of experience in the fitness industry. It is so much fun helping people achieve their fitness goals and dreams.

To change your body, you must first get determined. Make a decision and be resolved to see it through. After three weeks (21 days) of consistency, this program will become a new habit. Therefore, commit to follow this plan for one month and you will be transformed. Decide in advance to make this a way of life, never to fall back into old habits. Be obsessed with following this for 30 days. Once this becomes your new lifestyle, you’ll no longer need to do the affirmations, daily food log, visualizing, etc. You will just keep up with the great diet and exercise habits to maintain your new body. Remember to give thanks and praise to God for helping you. Then share your success stories with us at Service@DreamProgram.com.

Mental & Spiritual Exercises

Follow our patent pending manifesting method in Appendix B of “Dream to Destiny” which comes with our award winning “Dream Program Kit + Mentoring.” This book is available through most book stores, online (Amazon and other sites), at www.DreamProgram.com and it may even be at your local library. In addition to praying through your “KeyCards” and “Dream Sketch” aloud, write affirmations and draw your dream scenes over and over in your Dream Program Journal, which comes with your DP Kit + Mentoring. Do these mental and spiritual exercises right before falling asleep each night, before a nap or during your meditation times. This is the best time to re-program your subconscious mind, thereby re-directing your life.

The following are several affirmations that will not only feed your subconscious mind, but build your faith as well:

I am thin, lean and strong.
I maintain my perfect weight forever- ___ lbs. and/or a size ___.

I am Fit 4 Life.

A little bit of God’s sugar satisfies me.
I eat small amounts of food slowly.
I make the BEST choices.
I make healthy choices.
I exercise 4-6 days per week. (Three times per week is for maintenance.)
I love to work out! (Endorphins are great.)
I eat only when my body needs food (fuel).
I choose to eat mostly fresh, raw fruits and veggies each day.
I love fruits and veggies!

We manifest what we focus on. Therefore at the gym, read fitness magazines while on the treadmill, bike or other cardio machines. As you’re doing the weights and exercises (at home, at the park or in the gym) close your eyes visualizing your newly fit physique. Feel extremely grateful for your new body image. Without vision people perish (Proverbs 29:18 KJV).

Be your BEST YOU! Do what’s Best for your body and your health. Your spouse and children will respect you for it.

Sign up for group or personal mentoring to receive encouragement, motivation and accountability from me, Dina Beauvais, in person, via telephone, Skype or email.

Be sure to read part 2 of this blog as it contains specifics on diet and exercise. (Your “Diet” is your new way of eating.)
