However Dr. Oz’s concept is correct (see SF Examiner Feb. 17 “Healthy Living”). The point is for waist training to start slow an dstead, skipping “boot camp workouts and dramatic calorie-slashing.” Dr. Oz confirms that severe practices puts the body into a panic mode, increasing strss hormones, hunger hormones and causing you to be tempted to binge on high-fat foods. We have to ‘outwit’ our body’s biological imperatives to eat all the food we can get our hands on or see in the ‘see food eat it’ diet!
One thing I require my coaching students to do is carry around in their car and purse or pocket, zip lock baggies or health snacks like high fiber easy-to-eat cereal (there are yummie kinds out there with not all that much sugar), or carrot or celery snacks, or health bars (check calories!). For dessert we love the new yogurts coming out on the market in small portions with high flavor impact. They satisfy my sweet tooth for the most part.
Dr. Oz recommends a few moments of deep, slow belly breathing as well, but he hasn’t yet addressed the benefits of a tight belt or corset to cut back on portion control.
My present student Ashlee, reports less hunger during training and a new habit of better snacking late at night–her former nemesis as seh played on the computer or social networked with friends. With a son to take care of for life, this young mom is motivated to go the distance and try to drop 5 waistline inches and 20 pounds in three months. She’s on the right track — for life! We’ll keep you posted on her results, and welcome to Carl, our newest student starting his training program on March 23!
Don’t forget if you order a corset we’ll discount your training program enrollment fee this year by 10% of the corset cost. And for March our St. Paddy’s Day special is a 15% discount off any green fabric corset ordered!
