BrainTap Helps Break the Yo-Yo Diet Cycle

By Brenda Briscoe, LMT

By some estimates, more than 80 percent of people who lose weight, regain all of it back in about two years, with many packing on even more pounds, known as the Yo-Yo Diet Cycle. Researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles, analyzed 31 long-term diet studies and found that about two-thirds of dieters regained more weight within four or five years than they initially lost.

While small fluctuations on the scale are normal, the unhealthy behavior that experts refer to as weight cycling, is not. Cycling is defined as a significant increase or decrease of body weight (generally 10 pounds or more) that occurs multiple times.  Researchers believe a yo-yo pattern is often the result of a diet that’s too restrictive, and a study reported in the journal Obesity backs that up. It found that, people who follow a very low-calorie diet, regained significantly more weight than those on a more forgiving plan.

Balance is the key, as well as getting enough calories to support your metabolism. . . .Read the rest of the article by clicking on the image below:

Navigating relationships takes more than that loving feeling; there’s actual behavioral science that can help you reach your heart’s desires in the adventure of lifelong love. It takes concerted, Deliberate Acts of Love© that your partner can hear and receive from you and vice versa but that takes the process of learning, exploring and discovering what makes each of you tick – together. Whether you’re dating, pre-engaged, engaged or married; there is something that you could gain from learning more about yourself and your partner that could be applied to deepen your couple hood; what I call Love and Marriage Mastery©. Love and Marriage Mastery© is unique to every couple as each couple is unlike any other couple in existence; which is makes me awe filled every time.

Many of us make business goals and mission statements but what about applying these incredible concepts to stay engaged, connected, having fun, increase harmony and intimacy in your relationship? Sounds juicy and exciting to you? I hope so.

Well, there are actual techniques, strategizing, logistical changes, time management, organization of household tasks, mission and core values that could be applied to your relationship designed by the two of you with a facilitator to help you get there and maybe even have FUN while doing it. There’s actually decreased rates of divorce in the couples that do this work by 31%. Jenny Bair, MHE, wants to be in this process with you and your love. There are several ways to accomplish these relationship goals:

In these formats:

-One person of the couple working on his/herself within the context of the relationship (when one person changes, the dynamics in the relationship will have to adjust and change at some point) by phone and in person

-The couple working together (Ideal scenario!) by phone and in person

-Working in small group format with a group of 6-8 people in the Metroplex or beyond

-Workshop format with couples in the Metroplex or beyond

-Couple Assessments and Individual Assessments (SYMBIS, SYMBIS Re-marriage, Deep Love, Love Talks, and others!)
