Why am I so Heavy?

Welcome back!  If you are ready to start your FREE Full Wave Breathing program, your New Year is off to a great start.

Here are a few answer to the Question that is the #1 New Years Resolution for 2008:  Why am I SO heavy?

  • Maybe your body has to build fat cells to deal with the toxins to which the body is exposed. When your liver is overloaded it builds fat cells to hold toxic body wastes that cannot yet be processed.
  • Maybe your body is adapting to changes in the movement of the planet and responding to the sun’s altered activity. Maybe you are eating to compensate for changing electromagnetic conditions.
  • Maybe you just need simple quiet, breathing and sitting.
  • Maybe you aren’t getting enough nutrition from your food or are enzyme deficient so you eat more than you otherwise require.
  • Maybe you are increasing your adipose tissue to become more sensitive and attuned to what is going on around you.
  • Maybe you need more sleep.
  • Maybe you think added weight helps you to stay grounded.
  • Maybe you need more activity.
  • Maybe you have a yeast condition that is ten or more years old.
  • Maybe you are adding tissue to become more sensuous or more sensuously aware.
  • Maybe you had an injury that is over ten years old and you are still adapting.
  • Maybe you had an emotional trauma in childhood that you are still compensating for.
  • Maybe you are eating too many carbs that depress you and you want to eat more.
  • Maybe you are eating too many artificial sweeteners that cause you to overeat, crave carbs and stimulate weight gain.
  • Maybe you are eating too many carbs and processed foods that create insulin resistance
  • Maybe you can no longer “hold it in,” and have surrendered the tension of maintaining a specific posture or idealized version of your physical nature.
  • Maybe you have transgenerational stress influencing your genes, empowered by your beliefs.
  • Maybe your “lesson” is to love yourself unconditionally, accept “what is” and get over yourself.
  • Maybe you need to read The Holistic Guide to Weight Loss book.
  • Maybe you would benefit from a hypnosis course.

Why is any one person heavy? The reasons and possible combinations are virtually limitless. Most people, however, haven’t even thought about how to be heavy and healthy. Your body is naturally vital and performs self renewal activities. When under stress, the powerful renewable process of breathing fades into shallow breathing and breath holding. You can do yourself an amazing amount of good just by improving your breathing.

  1. Weight Loss in 5 Easy Steps

    Thank you
    Thank you for taking the time to read this article. We know that your time is valuable, and aim to give you the most value possible for the time you invest in reading our article. We have put together a 5 step success plan for losing weight.

    Step 1: Goals
    The first step to achieving the healthy body you deserve is setting goals. I’m not talking about vague goals like “I want to lose weight!” or “I want to look better in the mirror.” I am talking about specific goals, such as “I want to lose 5 kg in one month.” or “I want to lose 2 pants sizes in 2 months.” In setting goals, it is important to both make them a challenge and make them attainable. To lose 1 kg per month would not be much of a challenge & to lose 50 kg per month would not be attainable.

    Step 2: Breaking it Down
    The second step to achieving the healthy body you deserve is breaking your goal into smaller pieces. If your goal is to lose 40 kg in one year try breaking it down into losing 3 to 4 kg per month. If this still seems too high, break it into just 1 kg per week.

    Step 3: Choose a Program
    Now that you have clearly identified and broken down your goals, you are ready to choose a program. We have found Fat Loss 4 Idiots to be a real winner. It has been our # 1 seller, and we have received lot of positive feedback from our customers regarding the program. You can find it on our Weight Loss page.

    Step 4: Exercise
    One ingredient that is often missed in weight loss programs is exercise. Though you can lose weight without exercise, physical activity greatly improves your chances of success. This can be as simple as walking every day, or as complex as you would like to make it. Check out our Fitness page for some suggestions on exercise routines that may work for you.

    Step 5: Success
    With broken down goals, a winning program, and proper exercise, you are sure to succeed. Please post your success stories in our Guest Book at
