How to RELAX your way to weight loss

Relaxing to lose weight must be too good to be true, right?




And it’s so cheap and easy you can get started straight away!


There are two key ways we can use the fast and simple ‘QuickCalm’ relaxation techniques to help us lose weight.


1)      Relax through a craving.


Staying strong when your thoughts turn to unhealthy foods can make all the difference in reaching your goal weight and maintain a healthy diet. Most of us experience cravings at least once a day so learning to deal with them effectively is an important skill to have.  4.12pm is thought to be the peak time for a craving so be extra prepared around this time.


Cravings often arise for emotional reasons such as when we feel tired or stressed, not because we are hungry. They can be surprisingly strong, sometimes all absorbing, and can incorporate all the senses so you find yourself salivating and actually smelling the food you are desiring.


REMEMBER, this is just a creation of your mind and it does not have to sabotage your goals. On average a craving lasts just 3-5 minutes.


Using any of the QuickCalm five minute stress busters when you have a craving will help you to

  • Let your body relax
  • Take your mind away from the thought of the food
  • Reduce the intensity of the craving
  • Keep your healthy eating and weight loss on track

TIP – Try this technique when you are craving something unhealthy. It will help you to release the thoughts and carry on with your day, craving free.

2)      Let the body relax to let go of extra weight


When we are experiencing stress, our bodies release hormones like adrenaline and cortisol, often known as the fight or flight response. It is designed to keep us safe from the source of stress.

We often feel more hungry to fuel this response in our body and eat more even though we don’t need the extra calories. Usually we crave the wrong types of foods when we are stressed and eat for comfort or reward.


High levels of Cortisol (stress hormone) are linked to the accumulation of fat around the abdominal area – reducing stress and relaxing more can literally melt away your muffin top.


TIP – Try this FREE technique to help your mind and body relax and support your weight loss. Use this technique once a day.


REMEMBER, ultimately you are in control of your mind and body and can use this QuickCalm to support your weight loss. It’s so simple and barely takes any time out of your day.
