The Weight Loss market is a contested topic in the world, and many would question its efficacy in helping people lose weight forever. It’s a $72 billion industry in the US and currently, worldwide, there are over 1.5 billion overweight people. What is the difference between weight loss and weight maintenance, and is the weight loss industry merely just keeping clients in a Yo-Yo dieting loop to feed a system based on making money?
This is a topic explored in-depth by Kyah Andrea in her new book, titled Weight of Willpower. As a Naturopathic Nutritionist she specializes in weight maintenance techniques and aims to be as transparent and honest about weight loss. Her mission is to provide humanity preventative healthcare without adverse risks. Weight of Willpower for anyone who has tried and tested different diets on the market, but to no avail. It’s also for anyone who suffers from other weight or diet-related issues like PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Thyroid, or emotional eating habits.
The Weight of Willpower
Andrea’s book includes custom eating plans with food group guides to effectively choose meals, as well as understanding portion sizes without the need to weigh or measure food, which can contribute more stress to the weight loss process; a focus of the first few chapters is on relaxation. There are also various resources and activities that focus on having more fun while doing movement-based activities that are different from traditional activities like going to the gym.
A core tenet of Weight of Willpower is creating a new relationship with food by restoring positive connections, healing and releasing potentially destructive patterns. As a specialist in mindful emotional release work and meditation practices, Andrea offers and explains emotional release techniques in the book to overcome emotional blockages. Her work offers a holistic solution to weight loss by focusing on weight maintenance; it is not solely focused on the physical aspects, but also the mental and emotional sides. This approach is uniquely different to the more traditional programs we see in the market like the well-known Weight Watchers or Slim Fast.
The feedback from several previous clients of Andrea expound on her holistic approach, saying that she ‘deals with the physical, mental and emotional state and she gets results. Great results’, additionally, her approach is engaging, with the intention to truly inspire others to change, ‘the focus on finding and helping true cause of disease, is refreshing’.
What is the 21-Day Support Challenge?
Kyah Andrea’s 21-Day Stop Serial YoYo Diets Challenge offers an additional support and accountability system. It creates a space where everyone can feel safe, supported, secure, and reassured. Participants will receive daily personalized guidance and resources, which will include relaxation techniques, exercise and movement activities, nutrition guides, menus, and recipes.
Participants will be able to interact with Andrea by asking her questions. As a live event, the 21-Day Challenge will allow participants to venture deeper into their emotional patterns with food. Not only will it offer more information, but also the opportunity to connect with others who are going through the same experiences.
Weight Loss Retreats
Andrea’s retreats add more value to anyone who is ready to learn weight maintenance in sustainable ways. There are over 1000 recipe ideas, over 300 emotional release tips exploring NLP and EFT, over 100 exercise games where participants get to exercise without exercising, and almost 300 mindful meditations and breathing practices. The retreats will continue giving value even when they’re finished. However, in the current worldwide climate, all events and seminars will be held online.
With the vision to expand and inspire full human potential globally, the Weight of Willpower is a beacon for anyone who needs to delve deeper into why they are not losing weight. It offers a holistic and integrative approach, not only to weight loss, but overall well-being. Additionally, Andrea gives a new perspective on the differences between weight loss and weight maintenance, and the importance of first addressing emotional and mental weight, which ultimately affects physical weight.
