Episode 101: Five Key Tips For Weight Loss

Episode 101: Five Key Weight Loss Tips

Today’s podcast is about Five tips that can catapult your onset to weight loss and assist you with  shredding 10 to 20 pounds of stubborn fat reserves.

Tip number one; reduce the morning calories to 100 or less. You could do this by skipping breakfast and or your latte. Or you can reduce whatever you are doing to 100 calories. Remember coffee and tea are free from calories until you add sweeter, cream and or milk.  Black coffee with a dash of organic sugar or high grade real maple syrup, will help you gradually reduce your standard routine. Then you can slowly eliminate the sweeter and then the coffee. Coffee and tea are appetite suppressants, so depending on your health goals, you may need this crutch for awhile.

Tip number two; eat the bulk of your calories at lunch. And if you can,  push lunch until 3 or 4pm

Tip number three; never snack on processed foods.  And eliminate snacking. If you have to snack because you are feeling weak then eat an apple or a banana or celery or carrots.

Tip number four; drink 16 to 32 ounces of water three times per day. A good time to do this is once when you get up from a night’s sleep, then about 3 hours after the first one and the third around 1 hour prior to your last meal.

Tip number five; walk 30 minutes per day everyday. This is in addition to everything else you do activity wise.

Bonus tip one…your last meal of the day under 500 calories or this meal should be less than your total lunch calories. If you are going to break this rule eat it 3 hours before you go to bed. This is very important!

Bonus tip two...5 days per week are very regimented and your days off from work or pick two days a week where you have some freedom. This is not a license to cheat but there is a sense of freedom, for example you could have a latte or go out to breakfast.  But you would still drink your water,  walk,  workout etc.  And remember the majority of your calories would still be midday. 

So that’s what I have for you this week. My name is Robyne Hemingway and you are listening to Hemingway’s Heart.

Episode 96: How to Know if You are Healthy

Ep 96: How to know if you are healthy

In today’s episode we explore many of the particles that determine how healthy you are.  We also discuss the various types of dietary plans such as the fruitarians, vegetarians, vegans and variations like 80 10 10, Paleo, Mediterranean, keto and so on.

So, how to we know which is best? We hear calorie restriction is key, then we hear it’s not key it’s the production of insulin that is making us fat.

Also, we hear, you need lots of protein and then we hear no that’s bad too. So, how do we muddle through all of this confusion?

And to make it more interesting and often complicated, we have other factors that have direct correlation with how food assimilates such as stress, happiness, good quality sleep, exercise, water, air, work-life, family-life, social-life, environmental-life, and people. And each one of those previously mentioned has an impact on what our bodies do with the food we consume.

bottom-line, we need to always look at all of these evaluating them daily, weekly and monthly to ensure that we do not just hope we are healthy but instead we are actively making decisions that have greatest impact on our lives.

My name is Robyne Hemingway, thank you for listening to Hemingway’s Heart

PS I encourage you to always research these diets on your own and when making choices on how you want to eat, whole plants  will always serve you well. Eat plenty of Fruits and Vegetables everyday.

Episode 95: How Your Daily Rituals, Habits & Routines Define You

Ep 95: How Your Daily Rituals, Habits & Routines Define You. Today we visit the importance of these three actions. Do you know what your rituals are? Do you know what your habits are? Do you know what your routines do?

It is important to look at what you want to change and what you might need to change. Do you have any rituals that are motivated by intense levels of passion? If not, then perhaps you might want to change that aspect of your life. Also, it can take as long as 20 years for the negative particles from the negative habits to show up in ways that you can see them. But, maybe those daily habits are showing already. Take a moment or two and think about what you want to change or who you want to become and think about how you can change.

Episode 92: How to Combat Worry

Ep 92: How to combat Worry

Today, I give you and update on my 21 day challenge with intermittent fasting and the importance of measuring your body fat percentage. Then I go over different types of worry and how to combat them. First it is important to write down what you worry about, then decide if your worries are rational or irrational. Then see what you can do about each topic. Can you break them down into smaller chunks? If so, once you break each one down, see about possible solutions. Like getting a second job if you need more money and reducing your spending habits and or eliminating financial expenses that you do not need.

After we explore worry and what to do, I re-visit the Vision Board. I give you a brief explanation on how to create one and what you put on it. I think that vision boards are essential whenever we are wanting more joy, more love, more security, more safety, more compassion and so forth.
