The Top 3 Amazing Ways to Create Your Ideal Body
by Christy Whitman
Congratulations on choosing to move down the path to a healthier, sexier body!
You may be thinking, “But I haven’t even started yet!”
And yet you have…
Because guess what?
You already have the first (and most important) of the top 3 resources you need to create your ideal body.
For that matter, you already have your ideal body! You really do.
And once you align all the parts of your life, then the reality of your beautiful, healthy body can be revealed. When you get your body, soul and spirit into healthy alignment, the obstacles fall cleanly away.
I. The Power of Your Mind
Your mind – the way you think about things – creates the foundation for all of the life change you have ever been through or will ever face.
You may not have control over circumstances (for example, you were born to particular parents, live in a particular place, and so on) but you can always have control over your mind and your thoughts.
Don’t ever give that up! Don’t ever relinquish your most powerful life tool!
Instead, make a conscious decision to use it – and use it well – to create the body and life you were born to have.
Take a moment to consider the silent messages you’ve been sending yourself about your body.
o What changes do you believe your body is truly capable of achieving?
o What are the thoughts that you have when thinking about losing weight?
o Where is your energy focused on the negatives or the positives?
When your thinking becomes positively aligned with what you desire, your actions will come from a place of high inspiration, and your results will naturally flow into being.
By working with your feelings, thoughts, and intentions, you can become a master creator, regardless of your past, regardless of your age, regardless of any special challenges you may face.
Once you begin to link your thoughts intentionally to the unlimited well-being of your ideal body, you are going to begin to create it.
II. Create a Plan to Fuel Your Body
It doesn’t matter whether you’ve just had a baby, or whether you’ve carried extra weight your entire life. The only thing that matters is what you plan to do from this moment forward.
Set your thoughts on your ideal body, and sit down with a pencil and paper to plan out your new, healthier diet. It doesn’t have to be complicated!
In fact, you can get a long way down the road with these 3 simple starting points…
- 1. No more white stuff!
This is probably the easiest, most comprehensive way to get started fueling your body in a healthy way.
Remove from your daily diet white bread, white pasta, white sugar, pastries, white flour. All the good nutritive value is gone from these foods and by eating them you only offer your ideal body fast-acting sugars.
- 2. Eat more meals
That sounds pretty exciting, doesn’t it? You really can and should eat 5 to 6 small meals throughout the day to regulate the chemicals that run your body.
Don’t skip breakfast, and don’t load yourself up with a massive evening meal.
The key to creating your ideal body is to add fuel in the smartest, most useful way possible.
- 3. One third protein, one third veggie, one third carbs
Planning your meals and snacks in this simple ratio will completely shift your body fuel for the better.
Stop counting calories, stop worrying about finding fat-free foods, just start here and you’ll see results even before you add the third tool (see below!) to the mix.
You don’t have to become a gym rat in order to add movement and exercise to the plan to create your ideal body. But you will find that this part of getting healthy is much easier than you anticipated!
Want to know the reason for that?
It’s because our bodies were just made to move.
When’s the last time you saw a little child sit perfectly still? Children are forever dancing, kung fu-ing, and generally moving quickly and continuously until they sink into bed (over protests!) at night.
This is our body’s natural state of well-being.
Movement begins simply, and doesn’t require any expensive equipment. How many children do you see who need a giant piece of complex weightlifting equipment in their garage?
Part of moving toward your healthier, sexier you is getting your mindset right, as you saw in the first point above.
When you have negative beliefs and fears about moving around – even taking a walk around the block – weigh us down, they literally weigh us down.
You want to mentally release that weight, so that the pounds will melt away!
When you try to lose weight or heal your body from the outside-in (taking medicine, getting surgery, etc.), it just doesn’t stick. Creating your ideal body is about shifting to an inside-out approach.
This is about getting into alignment with the truth – the way you were born and the way you were intended to be, and it’s an integral part of every segment of your life.
