For Overeaters, Weight Loss and Yoga
Health Coaching for those who wish to lose weight!
As soon as you notice you are bloated, gassy, and you ate something that made your stomach feel heavy, weighs you down, and made your stomach stick out more than your normal diet of healthy foods, pay attention to that!!!!! Notice…..write that food down!!!! And don’t eat it again (for a LONG time), and perhaps, maybe, eat a grapefruit the next time you have the craving, drink some water, or just meditate and focus on the feeling in your body!!! What you could do, now this is just what I do, you have free will, but you could go into yoga poses that enhance the release of the gas!!! Literally, make yourself fart!!!! There are a bunch of yoga poses that help do that!!! And do them! And, even rest. Sometimes when we eat foods that make us feel gross inside, it affects everything else too, and we just need to relax, lay down, or sit. That could be a great time to meditate. Do your journaling of your food diet, or whatever else you want to journal about, read, etc. Don’t let other people push you around. Just do what’s going to heal you, and make YOU feel good!
Note: Any yoga poses that put pressure on the stomach, actually are the poses that help release that feeling in the belly, the gas, etc. Ie. child pose, knees to chest when laying on the back, etc. And there are alternatives to poses that make poses much easier than what you see in books, on tv, etc and they can support you to do the poses when you think you can’t.
Yoga is a very powerful form of weight loss! Not only will it help strengthen and stretch the body, it will also aid in detoxing and releasing toxins, energy and weight that has been stuck in the body for some time. The longer the weight has been held up in the body, most likely, the longer it will take to let it go. However, don’t give up on yourself. Give yourself the time, and pleasure of yoga, self awareness and healing to lose your weight and get the body back that you love!
