Daca vad o femeie cu par la subrat? Zambesc, cu iubire. Daca vad un barbat cu unghiile facute? Zambesc, cu iubire. Daca vad o persoana si nu stiu ‘ce’ este? Zambesc, cu iubire (si intreb, cu bucurie!). INFLEXIBIL Rigiditatea si fixismele mentale se repara cu deschidere si detasare. […]
Mimi imi daruieste – cu fiecare intalnire – atat de multa bucurie, rasete, positivitate, iubire, idei si ‘suport’! Precum Louise, Emmet si alte surse de lumina, Mimi imi reaminteste sa am incredere in planul divin ce are ca scop binele nostru suprem. Dupa ultimele doua […]
Before we begin:
- this is not a piece of fat shaming – all bodies are great bodies, and we LOVE our way into new conditions, instead of being miserable about ourselves.
- my intention is to explain, in a radically simple manner, why you get fat, and how to reverse the process, should you wish to.
We are entitled to perfect health. It is our birthright. Most fat/skinny people suffer (personal experience), and we must stop that. We must reclaim our birthright. That is – perfect health!
Why Am I Fat?
In one word: ACIDOSIS.
A small amount of acids is necessary – it helps break down larger stuff. But overall, our body loves being alkaline, not acidic. So when our body is faced with acidosis (too many acids, coming from the food we eat and the lifestyle we live) it needs to neutralise it somehow. Here are the three ways acidosis is neutralised:
- Combat acidosis using hormones produced by the adrenals (also known as the stress glands.) These hormones are cholesterol-based. When the acidosis +++, cholesterol +++ (to produce more hormones needed to fight down acidosis). But because the adrenals soon fail (they need lots of sleep, peace and calm to recover…) the cholesterol +++ cannot be put to use –> GAIN WEIGHT.
- Use electrolytes (calcium, magnesium, etc.) to deal with acidosis. The body uses electrolytes from bones, muscles, other tissue, and if your thyroid/parathyroid aren’t in top-notch state, the electrolytes won’t be replaced –> osteoporosis, fractures, joint, hair, nails, teeth etc. issues.
- Fight down acidosis with the help of the water between cells. This will result in inflammation, water retention, swollen feet, palms, and so on.
If you’re fat, your body is dealing with a serious case of acidosis. Same goes for those of us who are skinny and don’t properly assimilate; faced with connective tissue issues, for instance.
Fat shaming, the stigma around body weight and absurd expectations are very real issues. They must be annihilated; replaced by a radically loving and all-embracing outlook. But so is the case with our personal acidosis.
How to Reverse the Process?
The good news is everything can be reversed. Our bodies are smart, strong entities and go through a great deal of work to offset and survive decades of abuse we put them through.
How you change your style in order to best honour your life is a personal decision, and a lifelong process.
Food Wise: you sustain life with life; ideally, you would only consume foods which are alive, such as fruit, and veggies, or green leaves. I know, it sounds radical, but so are the results yielded – miraculous 😉
Lifestyle Wise: do what you have to do in order to live your best life; grounded in serenity, doing what you love, living in beauty, interacting with positive people. Again, it is a very personal journey, because there is a Divine Design for each of us, and so it only makes sense the Perfect Plan to reach it would be personalised 🙂
Açaí madness – that’s what April has been about. This bowl of goodness is basically sustaining my existence for now, so be ready for a really consistent açaí presence in the feed below. Not too shabby in the smoothie category either, eh? We’ve got taro, we’ve […]
We’ve gotta take good care of that pretty face of yours, so here’s a bunch of inspo to keep you smiling and shining and glowing and stunning!!
Without a trace a doubt – the best natural (organic, essential oils, fair trade, etc, etc.) soap I’ve tried is this one from Dr. Bronner’s. The packaging is iconic, the formula gentle, and the foam so delicious! I first got the peppermint one (couldn’t find the eucalyptus one I wanted), but turns out this peppermint one is a tad too strong and refreshing for willy willy, so I decided to also get a second, more gentle (and sweet) almond bottle (smells just like Marzipan). It’s an experience.
Finally a fluoride-free toothpaste that actually cleans thoroughly, thanks to the coconut oil and essential oils (that give it a fresh, funky flavour, too!). I love the name, the look of the packaging, the way the cap opens up, and that you only need a super tiny amount with every use. Will stock up before leaving Mexico, cause I don’t know any great toothpaste in Europe, yet.
I also do oil-pulling after every meal (as long as it’s possible) – hence this cold-pressed virgin coconut oil. The deodorant (desodorante) you see in the picture; I got at a random market in Veracruz earlier this year, and it’s been truly revolutionary. Smells amazing, applies easily, holds great throughout the day 🙂
Okay, so probably cause of the stereotype (gay, fashionable, etc.) people always assume I spend a lot of time doing my hair. NOT TRUE. It honestly takes 10 seconds – because all I ever do is put a small amount of one of these two products below in my hand, rub it well, then pass my hands through my hair, in a backwards motion. Davines (liquid) or Kevin Murphy (solid pomade) + apply = listísimo 😉
What I use to scent up my room is this lemony scent, which is supposed to keep mosquitos away thanks to the essential oils in it (spoiler alert – it doesn’t!!). I light it up in the night, before going to bed, as I say my affirmations in front of the mirror 😉
They’re tiny and simple – a candid reminder that lasting joy can be found when you least expect it:
1) ME, POTATOES AND A GARDEN: well, one day last spring I was home alone, feeling lonely and forgotten. So I made some mashed potatoes, went outside into the back garden, sat on the grass and ate it. Sky was at dusk, an ant tried crawling up my bowl. Wind was chilly, but I really was at ease.
2) A BENCH, SOME WIND AND A VIEW OF VANCOUVER: this was on my last day of Spring break, which I spent in Vancouver. I’d just finished late lunch, by myself, at a place I really wanted to try before leaving (called cactus club cafe). Went outside, and there was these beautiful waterfront promenade. Found a bench, took a seat, put my feet up, and just existed. It was gusty, but I had my cousin’s warm long coat. My eyes teared (windy!), my heart filled with emotion, and I felt so little in the face on skyscraping beauty 🙂
3) AN ACAI BOWL, UNHAPPY WAITERS, AND A MATURE GUY: not too long ago, I had my first ever acai bowl, somewhere healthy and overpriced in Mexico City. There I was, just me and the acai bowl – all I could feel was bliss. I loved every slurp of it. Why didn’t I try it sooner? Around me, the room was busy with grumpy waiters. Why are they so unhappy, I remember thinking. Would I act the same way, if I were them? All of a sudden, an old guy was sat next to me, at the long communal table. He was by himself, too. And despite his age, he made sure to take a picture of the food before delving in. I thought that was funny. Will I ever do that?
After extensive research (a.k.a. daily visits and hefty bills into my local Verde Bendito) I can successfully report on the fascinating world of matchalicious drinks and healthy nibs in Mexico: 1) LOTS OF RICH MEXICANS – like, every time I’d go, be it at 9 […]
