Find What Lights Your Fire! Get Moving!

I am very lucky that I found the sport that lights my fire and feeds my passion. It is soccer. I longed to play when I was raised overseas– it was just for boys then. When I was given the opportunity to play women’s soccer, I ran with it. I played in high school and went on to start the women’s soccer program at Wake Forest University. I have played ever since. I am currently a registered NC Amateur Soccer player, playing on two teams competitively.

What is great about finding my passion in a sport is that it gives me motivation to stay fit. I have a sprint partner to keep me fast, and a personal trainer who does the same. I have recently taken up tennis to keep me fast off season. What do you love? If you find what you love, then getting motivated to workout will not be an issue for you.

Many of my students are truly committed to their health, but struggle to get motivated to workout. So, in one case, I created a class for them to work out on the beach. That helped. One of my students loves to dance; she found a tap dance class to enjoy. One of my other students was a dancer for years, but injured her knee beyond repair. Now she enjoys explosive workouts that we designed which suit her busy lifestyle and the limited number of minutes in her day.

Do you need help with staying motivated to exercise? Have you discovered an activity that you could become very passionate about? Checkout our classes as a possible resource for a better life for you. We co-create with you.

Many people think that being active is optional. For anyone dealing with Type 2 Diabetes, Cancer, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, etc., it is not optional. It is mandatory to deal with, and in many cases, reverse the disease.

Sugar Feeds Cancer

IMG 6749 - Sugar Feeds Cancer

One of my husband’s favorite fall activities is to go to the fair. He loves that funnel cake, made with gluten, sugar and terrible oils. So, found a great healthy pancake recipe, experimented, and came up with a fabulous version of the funnel cake. A super healthy, delicious one without gluten, without sugar, without chemicals and without carcinogenic oils!  www.beatricehair.org

I love hanging out with my fellow wellness revolution friends. We talk about how we continuously create excellent replacement recipes, products and cleansers. We share stories about people who do not even know what we are talking about—and are dying of brain cancer while eating sugar.  And we hurt for them, and wish we could work harder to educate more people sooner.

One of our conversations did center around cancer, since cancer has affected both of us, either personally or within our immediate family. When the doctors want to check if you have a tumor, they give you radioactive die mixed with sugar and put it directing into your veins. Then they take an X-ray to see where the sugar went. This is because cancer eats sugar. So, if you have cancer, does it not make sense to drop the sugar? And the other sugars, such as lactose? I know someone who had three small children and a brain tumor. He told me himself a few months before he died from that brain tumor that he would not give up dairy.  Really? We help our students create all their favorite desserts and dairy foods—without the toxins and the sugar! There is no deprivation with our program.

Are you still doing a mammogram? I stopped doing that after over radiating myself for 20 years. These days, the dangers and risks of the squishing and radiation are much more publicized and women are not recommended to do mammograms at a young age anymore. I wanted to prevent breast cancer, so I over radiated myself for years. There is a better way. I do regular thermoscans. They are painless, involve no dangerous radiation and cost $200.00 out of pocket. Well worth it for me, as I will never do a mammogram again.

Halloween Planning for no Deprivation and no Sugar

IMG 8547 - Halloween Planning for no Deprivation and no Sugar

One of my cancer students, whose cancer markers have dropped twice since our work began, posted a note on her fridge about “eating in, feeling good.”  I used to say that I was a career woman; therefore I did not cook.  Later, I ate those words and I cooked my way out of fatigue and into health, and you can too. What are your favorite foods? Can you fix them yourself? What do you enjoy most about fall foods? I always tell my students that if they fail to plan, they plan to fail.

One of my husband’s favorite fall activities is to go to the fair. He loves that funnel cake, made with gluten, sugar and terrible oils. So, found a great healthy pancake recipe, experimented, and came up with a fabulous version of the funnel cake. A super healthy, delicious one without gluten, without sugar, without chemicals and without carcinogenic oils!

One of my students last year was being very diligent with the program. It was fall, and she went on her favorite vacation with her hubby. We made many plans for her health success, but failed to prepare for that caramel apple she just could not resist. She did not lose weight that week, felt bloated, felt fatigued and regretted it. Our next class involved her learning how to make a healthy caramel, with a candy thermometer. We created the most breathtaking organic, pure, sugar free and delicious caramel apples. Yes, it takes time and planning, but so does having a leg amputated due to diabetes. Being fatigued takes time too. Cancer is exhausting.

What are your plans for Halloween? What can you do to prepare so that you do not feel deprived if you decide not to eat sugar? If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. We offer one-on-one classes to help create magnificent plans with no deprivation. We have helped many, many people reverse type 2 diabetes and many other health issues.

Winter Weight- Winter Blues

DSC 0851 2 - Winter Weight- Winter Blues

So, summer is over and now starts the vicious cycle of gaining weight over the winter, right? How about making a plan to prevent this? There are many reasons why this happened to me for years. I did not sweat as much in the fall and winter as I did in the summer. I used to be a carb addict (and sugar addict too), and starting with Halloween, I went into a full swing addiction that was fed again through Thanksgiving– and then Christmas was just perfect for more carbs and sugar. Because, of course, all those traditional foods really did bring my grandmother back! Not really. I broke this cycle for myself 6 years ago when I went clean and started eating real food only. For the last six years I still go to the gym in January, but am always amazed at how many people come in so overweight that I do not even recognize them for a moment. And then many disappear by February. Are you this person?

If this is your predictable future, why not make a plan to change it. If you need help, sign up for our one-on-one customized, individualized classes where we will help you design a plan to look exactly like you look now in January-or, of course, like many of my student, maybe look and feel even better. And, you will still get to eat your grandmother’s favorite Christmas goodie. We promise.

The first step is to give up sugar and Franken foods. Once your taste buds adjusted and you will have to be massively creative; then you will still eat all your favorite foods. I love helping people with holiday recipes. Our program does not call for life-long deprivation. There is a better way.

Do You Have Freedom from Food Cravings?

DSC 0744 - Do You Have Freedom from Food Cravings?

I passed the ultimate test! I survived Hurricane Florence without suffering from food cravings? And I did not gain weight. Is this because my property was not damaged from the hurricane? No. Is this because I have superior self-control? No. Is this because I enjoyed being cooped up indoors for a long period of time? No. So why did I feel completely satisfied with my food plan, and why did I not suffer from food cravings?
Six years ago I started on a journey to get my health back! I have finally succeeded. I did this by discovering the right way to eat for me and learning how to eat in a way that leaves me satisfied. I have stopped my addiction to sugar and carbs. I have learned how to clean out the chemicals from my food, water and products. I know how much protein I need, how many carbs to eat and how to get healthy plant fats into my daily routine. Every person is different and the way every person needs to eat is different.
I have been a pioneer and advocate for one-on-one customized education for over 30 years. It is a fact that you could take a nutrition class and everything that is being said might be wrong for you. This is why I offer one-on-one customized, individualized food & lifestyle classes. A former student of mine said “A year after I graduated from Beatrice Hair’s program, I don’t crave sweets at all, even chocolate. But if I do, right now in my freezer I have made: homemade fudgesicles, watermelon slushies, Beatrice’s Choconutballs, homemade peanut butter cups & peach ice cream. Really, they tend to not get eaten quickly, because I dropped the story I was telling myself about food. Food doesn’t make you happy. My husband is making my birthday cake next week and it will not contain milk, sugar, eggs, wheat– and it will be delicious.”

Lemon Mousse-Sugar Free/Dairy Free

lemon mousse - Lemon Mousse-Sugar Free/Dairy Free

Tonight I met two people– a couple that was not well. One will need heart surgery if weight is not lost and one is diabetic. They expressed interest in my program, but are very concerned because they have a sweet tooth and giving up sugar feels like such a hardship. And who needs hardship, right? My one-on-one work has helped so many people get breakthroughs without any deprivation for the long haul.  This is not about a diet-it is a lifestyle of deliciousness!

One example is this Lemon Mousse. It is creamy, sweet and the epidemy of comfort food. However, the glycemic index (sugar value) is zero. And it is lemony and sweet and smooth. It is made with almond milk instead of cows milk because milk was intended by nature to help make baby cows into big cows. So unless you are living with the goal of becoming a big cow, do not drink milk. My mousse if actually healthy for a person who is losing weight or for a diabetic! Yes, my desserts are actually good for you!

For so many years we have worked  with the idea that we had to eat sparingly to lose weight. This is not true either. If you cut back your calories you will lose weight. But you will also mess up your metabolism to the point that if you eat a regular diet, you will gain weight. Our bodies will help us stay alive, so they go into “conserve” mode when you lower the calories; and they stay there. However, with a clever and well designed, customized and individualized plan, you can eat just right for you. And, no deprivation is a end goal of the program. That is, no deprivation for life.

Is Food a Cancer Fighter?

IMG 6744 - Is Food a Cancer Fighter?

Food as Medicine to Fight Cancer?

 

One out of every four Americans will get cancer. That is either you or one of the top three people in your life. Cancer is not some mysterious disease, but it is a beast. If you or a loved one has cancer, it will require a radical change in lifestyle to beat it. You may choose to beat cancer with the huge amounts of cancer fighting and anti-angiogenesis properties of food or you may choose chemicals to kill the cancer. Then what? Do you know what the statistics are for a reoccurrence of the same cancer or even a different cancer?  A deceased friend of mine beat prostate cancer, just to turn around and get leukemia a few years later. After that, there was a cancerous tumor the size of a grapefruit in his intestine. Chemo was used each time.

Was there a better way? Did he figure out what the carcinogens where?  What if my friend had eaten mountains of garlic, celery, ginger, green tea, mushrooms and cruciferous vegetables every day? Would the cancer preventing, immune system boosting and anti-angiogenesis fighting power of those foods have kept reoccurring cancers away? Massive lifestyle changes are also needed to fight cancer.

American’s have six times as much cancer as people in Asia. Why might that be? Studies have been done (2009 Dr. Zhang, Lin Fy, etc) that established a pattern that people who ate mushrooms and drank green tea had a 90% lower rate of cancer. Is food the answer to cancer? Less than 1/3 of Americans eat 2 fruit servings and 3 vegetable servings per day. How are you doing?

There are no delightful solutions to cancer once you get it. Why not start a prevention plan now? You have a one in four chance to get it. Lose the weight, build stress management into your life, eat right for you, eat cancer fighting foods daily and become a cancer fighting machine.

Yoga on the Beach

IMG 5534 - Yoga on the Beach

Why would you want to do yoga on the beach? There are many studies that show that better chemicals run through your body when your bare feet are actually making contact with the earth. So if earthing your feet is good for you, imagine the final relaxation (corpse pose) right there on the sand– a light summer breeze blowing the bugs away, the gentle sound of the lapping ocean waves and the distant sounds of seagulls and children laughing! All this happens when you are actually grounded on the earth, and after you have released the stress in your muscles.
In addition, the sand is slightly destabilizing. Why is this good? Because anytime you are destabilized, you are working those core muscles. Yes, the ones that will give you that flat tummy that our culture values so much. All that, without ever having to do one dreaded sit-up.
Another reason to share your quiet medication space with others is because it breaks down the barriers that keep us thinking that we are separate from nature, animals and each other. I enjoy really seeing people right after a yoga class. Seeing them—not seeing the stressed look of the never ending to-do list that everyone carries around like an excuse to not be present and in the moment. People will actually be so lost in their minds and what has to be done for tomorrow, that they miss out on life, which happens right now, this moment.
Stress will kill you. Stress releases too much cortisol, which in turn triggers a sugar release to “escape the tiger.” Too much sugar causes too much insulin to be released, and too much insulin leads to belly fat, which stores the excess cortisol. Too much belly fat causes higher insulin levels and on and on and on. What is a great stress buster? Yoga on the beach.
Bring your towel, $10.00 for hospice and a commitment to be present in each moment and in each breath while being one with it all!
Where: Sellers St. Beach Access,Oak Island
When: 6:30 on Thursday this Summer
