Knowing your worth with Nadia Kashouh

Journaling
Meal Planning and Journaling go hand in hand. How you may wander? Losing or maintaining your weight is not just about food and exercise. It is also about your well being. Journaling not only helps with well being but gives you the opportunity to keep track of your weight loss journey. It makes you accountable, by recording your thoughts, habits, what you have eaten, exercise, your moods. You are able to take control of your health, wellbeing and mental health. You are also able to record and see your progress, in other words, goals  you have achieved and where you need to make improvements. To help achieve your goals I have written (under a pen name) a number of journals, you can purchase this on Amazon - available only on paperback. I will really appreciate if you you could please leave a review if you make a purchase.

Belly Fat
A topic that a lot of women find very difficult or are shamed to talk about. Belly fat is not something to be ashamed of, it is to do with body change due to child birth or age. However, if you want to reduce the belly fat you can do so without surgery or other means on the market. You can do so in a healthy and sensible way. But you shouldn't never be ashamed of having belly fat. I am not talking about a flat belly or 6 pack, merely tips.

The Healthy Lifestyle
There has been a misconception around the healthy lifestyle. Some think you have to starve yourself, or that it is boring. Why change, etc. There is no concerete definition of a healthy lifestyle, why? Because we are all different - age, health issues, schedule, etc.  In this short episode, I talk briefly about the healthy lifestyle and why it is beneficial. Being healthy should not be torture or a punishment, if you don't like it then don't start it. There is no point doing something that you dread. Word of caution, the Healthy lifestyle is hard work, it is also about commitment.  This is not just for a few months, we are talking the rest of your life so think very carefully before you start this 'journey' of a lifetime.  For detailed information on the healthy lifestyle, download a free copy of my ebook; Eat Well, Live Well at www.deehealthcoach.com For  Weight Loss Coaching and meal plans for Women with Type 2 Diabetes. Book a free consultation so we can tailor your needs and goals. You can join my Facebook support page to interact with members, post and share tips.

Why Diets Don't Work
With the countless numbers of diet products/services on today's market. Why is it that women who lose the weight eventually put it back on. It is clear that dieting does not work, why? It is a short term solution, in other words, the weight goes back after just a few months. This has led to lots of women giving up on losing weight/been healthy completely. In this first episode I look at why diets don't work, the effect it has on those who go from one diet to another. Having been on diets myself I know how it feels but over the years I have adopted a healthy lifestyle that does not require dieting. I share my personal tips and hints on how I have been able to maintain my weight by being sensible, practical and realistic without dieting. This approach has worked for me for more than 2 decades.  So why not tune to listen to how I achieved it. You can get in touch with me by sending me a message on the platform you are listening from or go directly to my website at www.deehealthcoach.com I have a free ebook you can download on my site  - How to Eat Healthy on a Budget Eat Well, Live Well - A Guide to a long term Healthy Lifestyle.   I hope you will find you it useful.
