The Weighting is Over! Start on your New Body Today!
Welcome to Satori Holistic Health. Who am I, and what is this all about? I am Vicky Rowe, health and weight loss coach. I am, like you, an overweight person who came to the hCG protocol after trying *so* many things, and depairing of ever being at a normal weight again. It came along right about when I’d decided ‘to heck with it, I’ll just be fat’. In 2008, I spent 3 months researching, lurking on weight loss groups, and learning everything I could before making my decision.
Well, I am now down 60 lbs, and have maintained that loss since mid-2009. That is me above left, before starting. And me above right, after 60 lbs. And I am currently working on the last 30 lbs, to get to a normal weight. It works, as you already know from all the wonderful success stories all over the web. But for some, it doesn’t come easy…..and that is where I come in.
Not long after starting the protocol, I realized, with the help of a good friend who is a life coach, that I wasn’t in the right job. What I’d always wanted, and had been doing with friends, family and people online for years, was helping them reach their goals, and enjoying every minute. So, I enrolled in health coaching school, and got certified as a health and weight loss coach, so I could do what I love, and make a living at the same time. And I am happy to say, I *LOVE* this job. Watching the change in the people I help is *the* most satisfying thing I’ve ever done with my life. I am changing the world, one person at a time, and helping others to change their lives. That is the biggest rush in the world.
Want to lose up to 30 lbs in 40 days? Can an hour change your life?
- Are you sick of dieting, only to gain back the weight over and over?
- Do you wish you could *finally* learn how to lose it and *keep* it off?
- Sick of all those broken promises from all those diets that JUST DON’T WORK?
- Are you tired of diets that expect you to eat *their* food for the rest of your life?
- Would you like to not have to be hungry or restrict calories?
- Are you ready to discover your unique lifestyle and eating program to let you stay slim and eat tons of healthy, tasty food every day for the rest of your life?
- Does the idea that you might never again have your favorite comfort foods again make you want to cry? (You can have them again!)
Everyone is unique. No one way of eating is right for everybody. While the hCG protocol will help anyone lose weight, *maintaining* that weight loss is where it gets complicated. The foods that you can eat are not going to be the same as someone else. That is why diets don’t work. We are not all the same, and everyone has their own unique balance of protein, fats and carbs that works for them. That is where I come in. I am Vicky Rowe, a former fat person, certified health coach and member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. What is health coaching you ask? Health coaching is working with you to discover *your* personalized solution to:
- Explore your primary foods (relationships, work, play, spiritual practice) and your secondary foods (food and drink) and find the best balance for *you*
- Lose excess weight and keep it off forever by retraining your body’s responses with and after the hCG protocol
- Find the right amount of food for you to eat (way more than you ever imagined!)
- Discover the balance of protein, fat and carbs that works best for you
- Find out how to reduce stress, love yourself and balance your life and in turn balance your health.
Coaching is a team effort. We will work together to explore your life, health and lifestyle, and work to find a balance that allows you to accomplish your goals. You already have the answers to all your goals inside you right now. And I will help you find these answers, and learn to take action on them so you can reach those goals! No one way of eating works for everyone, and as many people have discovered, diets don’t work. You might lose the weight, but keeping it off is the hard part. That is where coaching comes in. I will help you discover:
- What is holding you back from achieving your goals
- How to stop that little voice inside that sabotages your efforts
- Why you find yourself cheating or eating foods you know are bad for you
- Ways to re-train your brain so you will automatically make better choices
We all want to lose that weight. And that takes time and effort, and often is slow and frustrating. There is no magic pill, despite all the claims out there. But there *is* a way to both lose weight and then be able to eat a normal, healthy diet for the rest of your life!
Enter the hCG Protocol. This is not a diet. It is a medical protocol using food as medicine to re-train your hypothalamus (your food and hunger traffic cop) so that it won’t tell you to eat sugar, simple carbs and other foods that will pack on the pounds. Years of poor eating, or just eating the Standard American Diet (SAD is the acronym, funny, isn’t it?) creates insulin resistance and candida overgrowth, which causes you to crave sugar and starches to excess, but be unable to process them, so they get stored as fat.
Recent studies have shown that contrary to 40 years of the medical industry telling us to cut the fat, it isn’t fat that makes you fat. Simple carbohydrates make you fat! What are these evil foods you ask
- It is things like high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which is in thousands of foods available in your local store.
- It is things like white flour, which has had all the nutrients stripped away with chemical processing, and then ‘enriched’ to add back the very nutrients that they took in the first place!
- It is MSG, a food additive that enhances the flavors of food, causing you to overeat them.
- It is soybean oil, also present in thousands of foods, causing your thyroid function to be depressed and causing your body to store the food you eat as fat.
- It is ever increasing portion sizes, making it difficult to make wise choices
- It is endless commercials pushing drugs you don't need, food you shouldn't eat (watch a pop tart commercial sometime, it will make you sick), and encouraging you to eat, drink and be merry, damn the consequences
- And it is artificial sweeteners like Splenda and Nutrasweet, which studies have shown to be poisonous, and to actually make you GAIN weight!
The hCG Protocol, created by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in the 1950’s, is a medical prescription using food and hCG (human chorionic gonadatrophin), a hormone that is produced by pregnant women. This hormone causes the body to use stored fat to feed the mother, supplementing the food she is eating, so that her baby will be born well nourished and healthy, even if the mother doesn't get sufficient food.
When the prescription or homeopathic version of this hormone is used in small amounts in conjunction with a controlled diet for just 43 days, you (women *and* men) can lose between 20 and 40 pounds. (Average losses in 40 days are 20-25 lbs for women, and 30-40 lbs for men). When followed with just another 21 days of eating *lots* of food while limiting sugars and starches to ‘set’ your weight, and then slowly re-balancing by adding back healthy carbohydrates like brown rice, sprouted grains and other healthy carbohydrates, you can, in a very short period, lose the weight, and then go on to a healthy future at a normal weight, eating healthy food! If you have more to lose, you can go through the cycle again, and in this way lose 50, 80, or even 100 lbs or more of weight! And the big thing is:
I've been researching and coaching the hCG protocol since 2008, and am myself an hCG diet loser (winner!) since January, 2009. I make no claims as a medical professional; I'm a professionally trained certified holistic health and weight loss coach. I'm also a research-oriented person who has figured out a lot of answers to my own questions on the hCG diet, and gathered that information and tested it. I have incorporated this protocol into my coaching practice, because I’ve seen not only how well it works to help people lose weight and keep it it off, but that it is a marvelous journey of self-discovery which will change your life *FOREVER*.
