  1. Consume a  diet based on the consumption of whole foods. The foundation of almost any healthy goal begins with proper nutrition. The more a food is externally processed, the less it needs to be internally processed to be utilized by the body. Whole foods are more nutrient dense, less energy dense, contain higher amounts of fiber, and take longer to be processed. Skip the bag and box aisles and stick to the perimeter of the grocery store.
  2. Don’t forget your protein and fats. Protein and fat require more time to breakdown into their usable parts than do carbohydrates. A recent study in Cell Press mapped out the signals between your gut and your brain, finding that protein increases satiety through modulating mu-opioid receptors. These receptors regulate brain-gut communication. When combined with primarily carbohydrate meals, dietary fat has been shown to slow digestion in the small intestine.
  1. Drink more water. Your gastric mechanoreceptors can’t differentiate between food and water, they only respond to the volume of the substance passing through. Water quickly passes through without need of processing, but still can temporarily trick your body into thinking it is full. If you have hunger pangs but have already met your energy needs for the day, try a glass of water first.
  2. Utilize sensory cues. Smell your food before putting it in your mouth, use a smaller plate, chew your food for a while before swallowing to maximize the oral sensation —all of these small things prolong the cephalic stage and subconsciously increase food satisfaction.
  3. Experiment with meal timing and frequency. Contrary to conventional belief, studies have demonstrated that skipping breakfast has no negative effects on satiety, and may result in a reduction in caloric intake. Intermittent fasting—cycling between extended periods of fasting and shorter periods of feeding—has been gaining popularity and there is plenty of scientific research to back up its efficacy. Experimenting with meal timing and frequency can help you find the meal regimen that works best for you.

Relieve Stress and Anxiety

Stress and anxiety are common experiences for most people. In fact, 70% of adults in the US say they feel stress or anxiety on a daily basis.

Here are 8 simple ways to relieve stress and anxiety.

 1. Reduce caffeine intake. Caffeine is a stimulant found in coffee, tea, chocolate and energy drinks. High doses can increase anxiety. People have different thresholds for how much caffeine they can tolerate. If you notice that caffeine makes you jittery or anxious, consider cutting back. Need an all-natural energy boost? Try inhaling peppermint or diffusing citrus oils.


2. Write it down. One way to handle stress is writing it down. Another way is recording what you are grateful for. Gratitude may help relieve stress and anxiety by focusing your thoughts on what’s positive in your life. (I like the  Gratitude Journal)

3. Spend time with friends and family. Friends and family can act as a sounding board and lend support.

4. Laugh. Did you know laughter can also help improve your immune system and mood? Try watching a funny TV show or hanging out with friends who make you laugh.

5. Learn to say no. Not all stressors are within your control, but some are. Take control over the parts of your life that you can change and are causing you stress.

6. Avoid procrastination. Procrastination can lead you scrambling to catch up. This can cause stress, which negatively affects your health and sleeps quality.

7. Practice Mindfulness. Mindfulness describes practices that anchor you to the present moment. it can help combat the anxiety-inducing effects of negative thinking. A recent study in college students suggested that mindfulness may help increase self-esteem, which in turn lessens symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Diffuse! Using essential oils may help reduce your feelings of stress and anxiety. Here are some of the most calming scents: LavenderRoseVetiverRoman chamomileFrankincenseYlang ylang & Geranium.

If you’re trying to lose weight, the amount of sleep you get may be just as important as your diet and exercise.

Bed Sleep

Check out these 6 reasons why getting good quality sleep is essential for overall health as well as weight loss.

1. Studies have found that poor sleep is associated with weight gain and a higher likelihood of obesity in both adults and children. People’s sleep requirements vary, but, generally speaking, research has observed changes in weight when people get fewer than seven hours of sleep a night.

2. Many studies have found that people who are sleep deprived report having an increased appetite, likely due to its effect on hormones that signal hunger and fullness.

3. Poor sleep can decrease your self-control and decision-making abilities and can increase the brain’s reaction to food. Poor sleep has also been linked to increased intake of foods high in calories, fats and carbs.

4. Poor sleep can increase your calorie intake by increasing late-night snacking, portion sizes and the time available to eat

5. Your resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the number of calories your body burns when you’re completely at rest. It’s affected by age, weight, height, sex and muscle mass. Poor sleep may decrease your RMR, although findings are mixed. One contributing factor seems to be that poor sleep may cause muscle loss.

6. Just a few days of poor sleep can cause insulin resistance, which is a precursor to both weight gain and type 2 diabetes. Insulin is a hormone that moves sugar from the bloodstream into your body’s cells to be used as energy. When cells become resistant, more sugar remains in the bloodstream and the body produces more insulin to compensate. The excess insulin makes you hungrier and tells the body to store more calories as fat, ultimately causing weight gain.


If you struggle to fall or stay asleep, consider the following doTERRA essential oils/ products:

Take 1-2 Serenity Softgels prior to bed to encourage restful sleep and calm the nervous system.

Diffuse Vetiver before bed for a calming and grounding effect on emotions.

Diffuse Balance before bed to promote relaxation, ease anxious feelings, and evoke feelings of tranquility and balance.

1. Make a meal plan.

2. Eat the rainbow. Your cells can’t survive without a variety of vitamins. Eat an assortment of plants in varying colors. Next time you cook a dish, challenge yourself to include as many colors as possible. doTERRA TerraGreens is a great supplement that blends whole food fruits and vegetables for a quick, on-the-go nutritional drink.

3. Eat anti-inflammatory foods. Eating more foods that have omega-3 fatty acids will help boost your immune system. Some great examples of these foods are salmon, tuna, tofu, walnuts, and flaxseeds.

5. Swap sugar for dates. Dates won’t spike your blood sugar and they’re a rich source of potassium.

6. Eat until you are 80% full, and then evaluate. Are you still hungry?

7. Plan your treats. Some people have a big cheat meal each week (meaning they give themselves permission to eat what they want). Others favor one small cheat a day. Whichever you prefer, plan it out!

8. Use a supplement to aid in digestion. Having your digestive tract clear can help with absorption of food. doTERRA’s TerraZyme is a great aid for digestion.
