Could this be you? (special invitation)
Posted by Andrea Nakayama
“Do you have groups for people who have lots of weight to lose?”
This is a question that came up in the fall.
It was asked on our private Message Board by one of the participants in our fall detox.
In fact, let me share parts of that conversation with you, in case this is you too. . .
“I was wondering if you ever have support groups for people who have lots of weight to lose. Being here has been so comforting to me. It helps to know that there are others ‘out there’ who are eating the same thing, asking questions (and reading their answers), making healthier choices, etc.. I know I likely need some one-on-one nutrition support too but I was just curious as this would be a great option for me!”
“Hey, this is a great idea! I’m in the same boat!”
Andrea Nakayama: Thanks for speaking up. We’re in the process of creating some small group opportunitiess for the new year and this would be a fantastic place for us to focus & create community (and transformation) with you. Stay tuned. We’ll reach out.
“On the weight loss topic, I need to lose between 50 and 80 pounds (depending on what my healthy body weight is now that I am in my 40s). During this detox, I have still be struggling with pain (and my crazy busy life) so I haven’t exercised much at all beyond walks around my office, which are adding up to close to 10K steps. Despite my general lack of “concentrated” exercise and the fact that I eat whatever I want (detox approved foods only, of course) whenever I’m hungry, my excess weight is simply melting off. Between the two Replenish programs I’ve done, I’ve lost 16 pounds!! Yay! So, my question is, as I continue to eat in this manner, will my weight loss naturally taper off as I near my body’s healthy weight?”
Andrea Nakayama: Some big YAYs in there for the progress you’re making! The answer to your questions is really “it depends”.
The depend factor is based on what may be happening to keep the weight on or allow it to come off. I spoke to my Nutrition Team today about a group that could address this particular need and do the necessary investigative and counseling work. We’re all really keen on it, so stay tuned and, keep up the amazing work, getting what you can do (exercise-wise), into the picture, as you are. The movement will come and we can help motivate that as well. Cheering you on.
“Thanks Andrea! This response has me laughing. ‘It depends’ is my favorite answer! I used it 10 times in one conversation just yesterday! I look forward to the possibility of a group on this topic!”
Andrea Nakayama: We think alike!
Those great minds, thinking alike, have lead to the formation of the group these women were asking for.

Functional Nutrition in Practice
In a recent discussion with some Full Body Systems graduates, I asked them to describe what nutrition means to them.

The Chemistry of Coffee
Although caffeine is found in over 100 plants worldwide, its effects are most potent in coffee. This potency stems from coffee’s high concentration of two other stimulants–theophylline and theobromine.
