Wow, thank you to all of you who have signed up to join me for our next Weight Loss for Women online course. I have been absolutely blown away by the number of you who are so willing and open to learn more about how to improve your health as well as come to really understand, appreciate and look after your body during this time of uncertainty. My team and I are very much looking forward to sharing this online bubble with you that will be full of ongoing support. For those of you who are still considering this course, you might like to read more about it from the link in my bio - there are spaces left and we’d love to share this experience with you. Let’s come through these times physically energised and healthier and with an uplifting mental clarity 💜

Apr 2020

I considered postponing the next intake of my online Weight Loss for Women course. So many people have had their worlds tipped upside down recently and I recognise that priorities may have changed significantly in certain households. However, I see that people are craving community right now and how anything that brings us together, even though we’re physically separated, may be incredibly helpful at this time. . So, we're going ahead with the next intake and we're starting on 20 April. . Given the immense uncertainty out there, I'm also offering 50% OFF (a saving of $150 ) to everyone who joins this next intake—this will automatically be applied at the checkout. The investment is $149. Plus, all participants to the April intake access will be enrolled to the Real Food Chef video series for free (valued at $99 ). . In this nine-week course, not only do you get daily emails from me, educational videos, recipes and downloadable resources. You also get access to our incredibility supportive forum where you can interact with me, the Dr Libby team and the other women on the same journey as you. . Perhaps this is the one time where you feel you have space to slow down from everyday life and learn more about yourself and your body. . Or it’s an opportunity for you to heal those health challenges—things like thyroid imbalances, PMS, menopausal complaints or emotional eating—things that may have been bothering you for years. . Ultimately this course teaches you how to be the healthiest version of yourself, and the world needs more people in great health right now. . So, if it feels right for you, I look forward to welcoming you into our little online bubble from 20 April, and supporting you, alongside my team, through this unprecedented time. . Visit the website to find out more about the specifics of the course and enrol. Link in my bio ❤️

If you find yourself emptying the contents of your pantry into your mouth or baking up a pile of biscuits and devouring them before they’ve even cooled, please know that it’s not a lack of willpower that’s driving you to do this. So, what is it? One of the things it can be is our attempt to soothe an emotion we initially might not even know is there. The first step to overcoming emotional eating is to bring awareness to it, and then ask yourself “what emotion or feeling am I really trying to soothe? And how else could I care for that emotion?” You might be amazed at what the mind can come up with when you ask yourself different questions. #solveyourpuzzle #weightlossforwomenonlinecourse #wlfw #drlibbyinsights #drlibby Disclaimer: this information is for general education only and is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, or to form the basis of a diagnosis.

The human body runs on two main fuels—glucose is our fast-burning fuel (think kindling on a fire ) and fat is our slow-burning fuel (picture a log on a fire ). So what gets in the way of efficient fat burning? When the sympathetic nervous system (SNS ) is activated, this drives our ‘fight-or-flight’ response. This is designed to help us survive physical danger—it primes our body to either fight for our life or flee the scene. So, which fuel do you think the body is going to rely on more, in such a life-or-death, rapid response kind of situation? The fast-burning fuel, of course—glucose. Nowadays, the situations that activate our SNS usually aren’t life-threatening and thankfully don’t require us to take the same kind of physical action, but our body doesn’t know that. So, it still preps you with an ample supply of fast-burning fuel, thinking it’s saving your life. You will primarily utilise glucose rather than body fat as a fuel when this is going on when in fact it is very ‘safe’ for you to use your body fat. We just need to make sure your body knows this! #solveyourpuzzle #weightlossforwomenonlinecourse #wlfw #drlibbyinsights #drlibby Disclaimer: this information is for general education only and is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, or to form the basis of a diagnosis.

Did you know that chronic stress can influence where your body stores fat? Cortisol, our chronic stress hormone, promotes body fat storage in the tummy, for example. Historically, our long-term stresses were things like floods, famines and wars—all times of food scarcity. So, to give you the best chance of surviving the “food shortage” your body perceives, it promotes more fat storage, particularly in the belly where it can cushion and protect your vital organs. It is possible to reverse this, and it starts with teaching your body to ease up on its stress response. Remember, your body responds to the information you give it and excess cortisol today is still interpreted by the body to mean what it meant thousands of years ago. We need to teach our body the truth – that our overflowing emails and to-do lists does not mean there is a shortage of food! #solveyourpuzzle #weightlossforwomenonlinecourse #wlfw #drlibbyinsights #drlibby Disclaimer: this information is for general education only and is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, or to form the basis of a diagnosis.
