3 Reasons Why We Need to Limit Our Sugar Intake

You’ve definitely heard it before – too much sugar isn’t good for you. Yet for some reason cutting down and monitoring your sugar intake can require a lot of self-discipline.   While most of us know that too much sugar isn’t good for us, the reasons why are nebulous at best to most.  That is we I invited certified nutritionist, Kelli Wike, to tell us more about why we need to limit our sugar intake.

Kelli Wike has a degree inNutritional Science from Bastyr University, and has been working with clients for 20 years with her company Transformation Mission.

Dr  Tina:   Welcome Kelli Wike, and thank you for joining me!

Kelli:  I’m delighted to be here!

They all interact with the body in different ways.  Some are better for you than others.   So Kelli, could you tell us more about the types of sugars?

From Unsanitary to Motivation to Clean!

From Unsanitary to Motivation to Clean!

I had a client that came to me for a variety of issues. After listing a number of things she wanted to work on, we asked her subconscious where to start. I got that we needed to work on something that she had not listed. I discovered that we needed to increase her motivation to clean, and then she let me know why that came up.

She had a pet that wasn’t toilet trained and she did not clean up after her.  She had not cleaned her place since her husband left her a year ago!   There was mold, feces and urine everywhere and she didn’t seem to care even if she stepped in it!  Her habits were disturbing and unsanitary enough that her family even tried to get her institutionalized!

How did she get the motivation to clean?

Healthy Choices Made Easy

Terry came to me concerned about her weight. She had lost 40Ibs through weight watchers, but she was constantly worried about gaining it back, and she wanted to lose 30Ibs more.   She would get intense and regular cravings for salty foods and sweets, and was always thinking about food.   Then when she would eat, she found herself eating far more than she should have, whether it was at restaurants with friends, or at home alone.   At the worst of her eating habits, she could gain weight very fast. Just before we addressed this issue she had gained 11Ibs in 2 weeks!

From Feeling Unloved to Hugged

From Feeling Unloved to Hugged

I have a client whose mother died when she was still a baby, and her dad remarried a woman who constantly berated her and made her feel unlovable. Her father was distant and never filled the void and abandonment that she felt after losing her mother. Consequently, she has struggled all her life with feeling unlovable, and desperately craved affection. Whenever I talked with her, her pattern was to criticize herself.

From Feeling Unloved to Hugged

We were working together to release subconscious barriers that made her feel unloved when she suddenly felt

Goodbye Sabotage, Hello Self-compassion

Goodbye Sabotage, Hello Self-compassion

Have you ever wondered why we self-sabotage?

We often call it addictions. And yes, we develop addictions by repeating the same action over and over.   But why?

Addictions, whether they are to food, alcohol or an obsessive-compulsive habit such as hand washing, are how we self-soothe to deal with our unpleasant, anxiety-prone reality.

I have a client who I’ve worked with to release a lot of self-sabotaging behaviors. She wasn’t exercising enough, drinking enough water, or eating well.   We released the negative beliefs, emotions, addictive thought patterns and feelings of sabotage, and now she has developed healthy food, water and exercise habits.

But now that she is on a healthy streak, losing weight and looking great, she had a fear that she could self-sabotage again. So we asked her subconscious, “what triggers her to self-sabotage?”  The answers were enlightening, and likely relevant to most or all of us!

Her subconscious revealed that she could be triggered to self-sabotage when:
