Kill Sugar Cravings with Essential Oils

Imagine if you can kill a craving in 3 mins flat!

In fact yesterday after this interview I had a sugar craving; I walked to my cupboard and opened it up looking to see what I have in there to feed it…and then out of the side of my eye I see my lemon essential oil.

Believe me when I say this that I sooo wanted the chocolate that is hidden at the top of my cupboard BUT  I thought well let’s see if Dr Mariza is right and lemon essential oil can cure my sugar craving.

So I placed a drop on my tongue, closed the cupboard door and walked off.

Only now writing this did I realise Holly sh*t it worked…even better I totally forgot I wanted the chocolate. No mental battle…NOTHING! 

Even though I have used essential oils for many years but not to cure a sugar cravings.

I noticed that there has been a big BUZZ around essential oils lately; so I decided to bring Dr Marzia Synders on the show today to give us the lowdown on essential oils (she shares some crazy mind blowing stuff!!!!)

Today we lift the lid on the  whole essential oils world; how they work, why they work.

I stumbled across essential oils 17 years ago; I had the weakest lungs, I continually suffered from asthma with continual bouts of bronchitis a couple of times a year. I was introduced to the powers of peppermint oil and since that day I never used an asthma spray or had bronchitis ever again….NEVER!

Dr Mariza Synders  shares how our stress hormones are linked to our sugar cravings and how we can vanish them in under 3 mins flat simply by sniffing a peppermint or lemon oil.

Essential oils are powerful organic constitutes that speak directly to our molecules, hence the positive immediate impact & effects.

Ep#13 – Losing Stubborn Over 40yr Fat!

Sick of feeling tired, stressed and fat?

Or perhaps just can’t seem to shift your weight, no matter what you’ve tried?

Losing fat isn’t as easy as it was in your 20’s, right?

Hence why I made this specific episode…

Losing stress and stubborn over 40 fat.

I know it seems as you’re get older, it’s getting harder to lose weight.

I’ve been there, it feels like you’re getting fatter and fatter… and fatter!

No matter what you seem to do, you just can’t shake off the excess body fat.

Plus being stressed with work also doesn’t help as you’ll hear exactly why in this episode.

But there is promise for you, right here, right now!

Today I share my 4 Biggest Fat-Shedding Tips for when you’re over 40.

How I fixed my thyroid and returned the clock back to my health better than my 30’s.

In this episode I cover:

  • Why snacking is disastrous for fat loss.
  • What accelerators your muscles growth and fat loss.
  • 3 foods that SHRINK fat cells…No B/S! Scientifically-proven numerous times.
  • What hormones are playing havoc and stopping you losing fat.
  • How the stress of your business is keeping your sex drive low and fat held at bay.
  • Why you’re not getting a full good night’s sleep, nor can move stubborn fat.

My Fat-Shrinking Breakfast Smoothie Recipe:

250-300 mls Almond Milk (or coconut milk)
2 tsbps Grass fed Beef Gelatine – Hydrolyzed
1 tsbps organic hemp protein powder
2 scoops- Metagenics Energy X (magnesium chocolate powder)
1 tsbp of LSA
1 tsbp of black chia seeds
1-2 tsbps coconut liquid oil ( or a quality MTC oil)
Add dark leafy greens (eg spinach, silverbeet etc)
Knob of fresh tumeric
Knob of fresh ginger
Handful of berries
1/4 Avocado
*Do you best to get all fresh ingredients organic and GMO-free

 

QUICK RECIPE TIPS:

  1. To get all your dry ingredients it will cost you approximately $70-$130 and will last you for approx 2 months minimum having it daily.
  2. I have placed links on where you can grab dry goods online above if you don’t have an awesome health food store locally.
  3. Energy X is practitioner-prescribed so you’ll need to get your hands on it through a naturopath or registered nutritionist.
  4. The Energy X is packed with magnesium which is crucial for supporting stress management, you can also have it in tablet form. I take both… as it makes the breakfast smoothy taste a whole lots nicer with Energy X in it 🙂
  5. The smoothie is in replacement of your normal breakfast and should hold you over for approx 4hrs.
