Are you doing everything ‘right’ but not seeing the results you want?
Many people—particularly women—come to the BePure clinic because they want to lose weight.
In the tunnel-vision pursuit of weight-loss, the part where we actually look after our body, often gets neglected. Caloric restriction, dieting and exercising to ‘burn calories’ are stressors to our precious bodies.
When our body is in a state of stress or imbalance it holds on to fat to keep us alive. Anything from gut issues, excess exercise, busy lifestyles, sleep deprivation, too much caffeine, or a lack of wholesome food and nutrition are all perceived by our body as stress.
At the BePure Clinic, we like to shift the focus from ‘losing weight to get healthy’ to ‘gaining health to lose weight’. We focus on establishing energy levels, mood stability, better digestion, deep sleep and general wellbeing (just to name a few!) for an easier life. The natural side effect of creating a healthier you, is a physical body that reflects how you feel inside.
“Calories in vs calories out,” is a saying you will have heard before. While calories matter, they’re not all that matter. Everyday common stressors are a large part of the weight loss equation, contributing to our body holding onto that extra cushioning .
Tips for Creating a Healthier You:
Nourish Your Body
We have so many opportunities to nourish our body and let it know it is safe. We like to encourage people to practise picking 'nourishment' over 'punishment'—through the food we eat, the way we eat, the people we spend time with, the exercise we do, and the way we speak to ourselves.
Practical Acts of Self-Love
Self-care is cultivated through many tiny actions in our day. Life is busy, and naturally we are drawn to shortcuts. If you can, make and take the time to prepare a nourishing meal, ask for help when you need it and swap the HIIT workout for a walk or stretch if you’re tired. Most importantly, speak kindly to your body; it hears everything you say (and think!).
Conscious Coffee Consumption
Many people drink coffee in a rush as a quick energy boost. Instead of relying on caffeine, we recommend eating, sleeping and living in a nourishing way to support better energy levels overall. Coffee can then become a lovely treat; an opportunity to slow down and be present.
Everything in the body is connected. Solely focusing on reducing calories and increasing exercise to try and force weight loss isn’t helpful to creating lasting change. Instead, we help our clients cultivate a mindset that supports nourishing the wellbeing of your whole being to enjoy a happier, healthier you; the weight part will take care of itself.
