* Note: this contains some of the tips & tricks I used to lose 50 pounds. You'll need Young Living's Premium Starter Kit / Essential Oil Kit to do this. If you don't have yours yet, what are you waiting for?! Go here, now, and get started.
In the Premium Starter Kit you have the following 11 oils, plus a diffuser: Lemon, Lavender, Peppermint, Frankincense, Copaiba, Stress Away, Panaway, Thieves, RC, Purification, and Digize.
I’ll show you how to you use of the above- along with a few additional products- get look better & feel better. With the following step-by-step routine, you will:
Each day do the following...
Here's what to do first thing in the morning- before you check your cell phone, before you look at the Facebook feed, before you go eat...
Again, if you have Young Living's Premium Starter Kit, you have all of these oils.
Do not skip it- especially if you are trying to lose weight. If you skip, you’ll feel sluggish, your blood sugar will drop and make you hungry for snacks, and your metabolism will slow down. I lost 50 pounds by doing some of the things mentioned on this list AND the following:
These items are easy to find in your virtual office (if you're already a wholesale member of Young Living, you'll get 24% off retail on these items- if you're not, let's knock that out first, so you get the best deal!).
This is the best way to take control of your day before it takes control of you... and, to make sure you're working your plan for the day- and not someone else's. Get some quiet time, OK?
And, while you do, try this...
Diffuse Frankincense or place 2-3 drops on your neck. (Frankincense is also great for skincare and can be used as a cologne for men.)
These tips are so good here that I actually felt like a friend of mine was "cheating" when I went running with him on a business trip and he blew past me. We were pretty equally matched- until he pulled this rabbit out of the hat!
If you're walking or running, place the little bottle in a "running belt," a fanny pack, or something else that enables you to take them with you.
Also, RC is a great recovery support.
And, Panaway & Copaiba are great for muscle soreness- 2-3 drops of each on your muscles.
Digize is the best oil for digestive support- period. But don't wait until after you eat to use it. Take 2-3 drops in a small cup of water before you eat… and 2-3 drops after.
This aids in digestion, and will keep you from getting a bloated gut.
Lemon oil is great to place in water- or hot tea- and will actually help control your appetite and cravings.
Peppermint is an alternative for digestion if you do not have Digize handy- or want to simply carry Peppermint with you to work and leave DiGize at the house (because of the other uses of Peppermint)
Diffuse Stress Away (5 drops) in your office or room. If you are unable to do so, place 2-3 drops on your neck and wrists.
Note: Stress Away is great dropped in water (2-3 drops), also. It has a subtle vanilla taste to it.
If your'e trying to lose weight, oddly enough, you'll probably need to grab a snack. If you don't get proactive on the eating side, your blood sugar can drop and you'll start craving total junk.
So, go ahead and plan to grab a piece of fruit or a Young Living bar. Knowing you've got something great coming will help you stay focused on your goal, too, of not eating crud.
Note: a lot of people eat healthy and then “lose their gains” on snack time.
For instance, once I was trying to "be healthy" during my season of trying hard but not getting any restults. So, I passed on the ice cream and waffle fries at Chik-fil-A and ordered a lemonade instead. It was so good that I took advantage of the free refill policy and had two.
Later, I learned that a Chik-fil-A lemonade- as tasty as it is- has more calories than a Filet Mignon steak- and it doesn’t burn off as well. I would have been better off ordering two steaks.
For dinner, follow the same instructions for lunch. Use the Digize. In time, the smell of it will remind you have how lean, svelt, and fit you feel.
And, no snacks after dinner.
Let your body digest- and cleanse itself. This will help get rid of some of the bloat. And, you’ll actually crave a healthy breakfast in the morning by doing this.
Finally, one of the best things you can do to help is get a routine…
Here's a great one-
Note: if you feel “down” that day, diffuse Frankincense instead of the Lavender.
That final bit about diffusing Frankincense brings me to this: your emotions will likely go up and down through this process. You'll feel victorious when you lose a few pounds. Then, if you're like me, you'll be ready to quit when the needle on the scale doens't move for a few days (stick with your plan, and it will... I promise).
Here are some of my "go to" oils. If you feel…
Here are three tips for you:
First, cut out a few things from your diet and you’ll get amazing results fast.
Second, add a few things that actually build your body.
Third, make a few predetermined decisions.
Do 30 minutes of movement six days a week. Walking is a great exercise. You may choose something else. It just needs to be something.
I’m happy to give you more recommendations on ways to get started if you’d like.
Now, if you don't yet have your Essential Oil Kit to do this. If you don't have yours yet, what are you waiting for?! Go here, now, and get started.
And, while you're there, look for this...
You will not need to replace all of your essentials oils every month. You will find, though, that many of them do need replacing.
And, you’ll need the proper foods. Remember? The shakes, the bars... don't go get junk of the shelves at the supermarket- this is your body! Get some great fuel in it!
Again, I encourage you not to go grab something off the shelves of the supermarket- loading with sugars and other items that will hinder your progress.
The best way to order this is to go through Young Living’s website and sign up for Essential Rewards- a no-contract, quit-anytime, frequent-shopper program that gives you points towards FREE products. We receive protein shakes FREE each month due to this program.
You can register for this, too, in your virtual office, or I can provide you with more info. This is the absolute best way to go!
