Dos and don’ts for New Year’s resolutions

- January 2nd, 2012
48

Wanna make your New Year's resolutions happen in 2012? Heed Valerie Orsoni's timely advice.

The statistics on New Year’s resolutions, as provided by celebrity weight-loss coach Valerie Orsoni, are downright depressing:

• About 45% of Americans make one or more New Year’s resolutions each year. And only 8% of people are always successful in achieving their resolutions.

• One in four people (24%) NEVER succeed and have failed on every resolution every year. That means that three out of four people almost never succeed. (The top New Year’s resolutions are about weight loss and exercise).

But the founder of the world’s largest online personalized health coaching site, www.Lebootcamp.com, says the numbers don’t have to be so dismal.

“You can reach your goals this year by avoiding the most common traps,” Orsoni says.

Here’s how …

TOP 5 REASONS NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS DON’T SUCCEED AND HOW YOU CAN AVOID FAILURE

By Valerie Orsoni

1. GOING IT ALONE

Unless you have the thick skin of a shark and the crazy stubborn attitude of a mule, it is extremely hard to stick to a weight loss resolution by yourself. This is the No. 1 failure reason. If people are not aware you want to change, chances are their attitude towards you won’t change either and they will keep on offering you cakes, cookies and other weight loss resolution saboteurs.

By going it alone, you will also not feel compelled to make any effort and you might collapse halfway to your goal.

SOLUTION: PUBLICLY DECLARE YOUR WAR ON POUNDS!

Create a support group on Facebook, put sticky notes on the fridge, in your car, everywhere, enroll a few friends (not too many, just 2 or 3) who share the same goal so that you feel the support at all times and you have their back like they have yours.

You don’t have to publish your weight but you can publish how many pounds you lost or the % of goal you have reached, etc.

2. DEPRIVING YOURSELF — FOOD AS AN ENEMY

You have gorged yourself for a few weeks, in fact you haven’t looked at the scale since Thanksgiving! The pounds have crept on your body and have added to your figure. So you starve yourself. You look at food as evil.

Not eating or eating only one category of food (think high protein diets or mono diets), can lead to very short term good results BUT if you have read the research, the pounds almost always come back.

SOLUTION: REMIND YOURSELF THAT YOU ARE A FOOD LOVER!

I know it is hard to know that you won’t lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks but think about the next few months. Would you rather lose it quick and see it come back quick? Or would you rather lose it forever? Then learn how to cook, learn how to love food and eat the food that’s good for you, learn one new recipe at least per week. Take a cooking class to learn about healthy recipes or watch online. Food is a positive part of your life, not the enemy.

3. TOO FAST AND FURIOUS

You did not gain those extra pounds overnight. You won’t lose them overnight either. I know it sounds like a terrible wake up call but it is the truth! Expecting to change your eating habits and exercise routine drastically and instantly will shock not only your system, but your mind too and your stress levels will jump.

SOLUTION — SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE

Change your habits slowly. Take one step at a time. Lose your extra pounds one day at a time. Make one major change per week and one baby change per day.

For instance:

Week 1: add a freshly squeezed lemon juice + room temperature water every morning on an empty stomach

Week 2: add a 30 min walk on an empty stomach (before breakfast, lunch or dinner, you decide)

Week 3: cut out that daily snack in between meals or stop eating the leftover mac n cheese or other foods on your kid’s plates!

Week 4: have one 100% raw meal per day ( a raw breakfast could be 10 sprouted almonds, 1 banana, 1 pink grapefruit and unlimited seasonal berries)

Week 5: Try going without sugar for a few days (believe me, it’s not easy. Sugar is in everything!).

Week 6: Add 2x1h cardio sessions per week

As for daily baby steps: try a 25th hour (or my version of integrative gymnastics) every day: squeeze your glutes while folding laundry or cooking, suck your stomach each time you go through a door, stand back up 5 times from your chair each time you sit, etc…

4. LACK OF CONFIDENCE

I cannot do it. I have tried over and over. Or others repeating “you tried last year and it did not work, the idea of losing weight or exercising seems like such an incredible feat, you don’t even know where to begin, or maybe you might be genetically programmed to be fat,” etc.

SOLUTIONS:

a) get rid of your diet saboteurs: don’t let them make you feel you cannot reach your goals because magazines and websites are covered with stories of former obese people who made it. Do respond to the saboteurs comments by saying, “I am sorry if you don’t believe I can make but believe me I WILL and nobody will prevent me from reaching the goal I HAVE DECIDED I WILL REACH.” Chances are those people suffer from lack of confidence themselves or else they would not need to make you feel so bad.

b) It is hard to stay highly motivated after years of trying BUT losing weight is like living in Hollywood. Only the highly motivated ones who never lose hope make it. You need to thicken your skin and not let others deprive you of your motivation and dreams. Write empowering messages everywhere and don’t you care about what others think: “I can do it,” “by February 14th I will have lost xxx pounds”

c) Buy an outfit one size smaller and leave it in sight. By seeing it constantly your motivation will stay high and so will your self confidence that you can reach your goal. Try on the outfit each week. You will see your progress. You can also write on a piece of paper a treat, like getting a massage, as a monthly goal. You will be much more motivated when you have rewards.

5. USING THE WRONG MOTIVATION/TECHNIQUES

Using the wrong tools will use a lot of your energy and yield no results. How frustrating can that be?

SOLUTIONS:

a) Change your atmosphere! Don’t start your morning at Starbucks with a calorie-loaded drink. Your friends want to do Happy Hour at a fattening restaurant? Meet them for book night or a movie instead and don’t have food and drink be the focus if this puts you in your danger zone. Going to the same places is not motivating and makes it harder to change habits.

b) Repeating the wrong mantra like “I don’t want to be fat” is not positive enough. Instead repeat “I want to be fit and healthy.”

c) Confiding in and counting on a naturally very thin person who constantly eats rich food in front of you will not help.

d) Also, hanging out with highly overweight people who don’t care and eat too much for their health is not a solution either because you will be tempted to eat as much as they do. Countless studies have shown how obesity is socially contagious. The solution? Enroll the ones who want to be healthy with you and once your results start showing go back to hanging with your hard core overweight friends. You will even serve as a motivation to these people and being so will empower you even more and motivate you to reach your goal faster.

Tips to end summer on healthy note

- August 15th, 2011

So how’s your summer going?

Whether you’ve been laying on the beach far too often, enjoying too many burgers on the backyard barbecue, or drinking too many beers at the cottage, there’s still time to wrap up the summer of ’11 on a healthy note.

Here are some tips from celeb weight-loss coach Valerie Orsoni:

GLOW + REDUCE APPETITE: Valerie recommends a Sobacha morning drink to fill up and make your skin look great! Instead of making your usual tea or coffee in the morning, just infuse a handful of roasted buckwheat and hot water, drink and after five minutes, voila — glowing skin + your appetite curbed by 25%.

IRON TRICEPS: After the shower, while your skin is soaking up your moisturizer, do 50 pushups on the wall (way easier than pushups on the floor, less pressure on the wrist joints and very efficient to get iron triceps).

REDUCE APPETITE FASHIONABLY: Wear a fine ribbon under your clothes when going to a party with a buffet. Tie it on your skin, not too tight, just resting on your skin at your waist level. When you start eating and your tummy starts swelling you will realize you might be doing mindless eating. This connection of stomach/brain will help reduce what you eat by at least 50%.

IN LINE AT STARBUCKS: While waiting in line (because there is always a line) alternate the following moves: contract your glutes (two cheeks together, then right/left), suck in your tummy as if you wanted to glue your abs to your spine. This will work your deep abs, the ones that make your tummy flat. A great way to work in isometry without sweating it off at the gym.

PERKY BUST: From the Moulin Rouge dancers: Put hands in prayer position, palms together, fingers pointing up and press/release palms (you will see your natural bra contract and lift) in an upward move towards ceiling, then come back down. Fifty reps that can be done anywhere you are alone (restrooms, bedroom, office, in your car, etc…)

SIZE DOES MATTER: Europeans are thinner because the American portion sizes are at least twice as large. When out, order appetizer size instead of entrée. Then you can have your dessert, which you share with your friend because the portion size of desserts is mind blowing.

EAT BEFORE YOU EAT: Reduce appetite — eat a hard-boiled egg before heading out to a party/dinner/buffet. The fat+protein will crush your fake, social hunger!

CHILD’S PLAY: You don’t have to sit and watch your kids learning judo, playing baseball or the piano non-stop. They actually do enjoy to not have their parents on the bench (allows them to fail without being watched). So wear your sneakers and walk around the block or on the sidelines with the other parents. Most lessons/games are one hour long — that’s an extra hour of exercise for you!!
