Reset Your Digestion With The 14-Day Metabolic Reset

Reset Your Digestion With The 14-Day Metabolic Reset

Are you ready to start the new decade fresh and energized?

I am here to help you decide whether or not it’s time to do a metabolic reset.

But first, why am I talking about a metabolic reset in the first place? It has nothing to do with fad diets or detox pills.

Let me explain!

The body is designed to be self-cleaning and to excrete toxins, but here’s the problem….

  • It can’t always handle the toxic overload present in today’s environment. 
  • Chemicals not excreted accumulate in our fat cells and cell membranes become internal toxins. 
  • These toxins corrode the body from the inside out, making it harder to lose weight, have more energy or feel good in your body. 

Ouch.

 So what is a metabolic reset exactly?

A metabolic reset is a gentle way of clearing excess toxins from the body so it can operate at it’s highest potential. 

Think of this reset as something that delivers an all access pass to boundless reserves of energy that you didn’t know you had! 

A metabolic reset is like restarting your computer in order to reboot the system and clear the bugs and viruses that slow it down from operating at its optimal capacity.

You’ll find that every part of your body works better simply by “switching on” your metabolism through cleansing.

My clients find that cleansing helps them:

  • Shed excess weight (especially belly fat) 
  • Boost energy
  • Feel lighter and cleaner
  • Decrease cravings
  • Experience deeper sleep and clearer skin
  • Improve your digestion (less gas and bloating) 
  • Feel more present in your relationships
  • Feel more confident in your body
  • Decrease congestion and allergy symptoms
  • Discover food sensitivities
  • Reconnect to your sensuality
  • Create new healthy habits that energize you 

 How will I know if it’s time for me to cleanse?

Glad you asked!

It’s time for you to cleanse if you answer “YES” to any of these questions:

  • You get bloated after eating
  • You tend to gain weight easily, especially in your belly
  • You have extra pounds that won’t come off with diet and exercise  
  • You have headaches more than occasionally 
  • You frequently belch or feel gassy or gurgling in your belly 
  • You tend to feel lethargic during the day
  • You have cravings for sugary or starchy foods  
  • You experience mood swings or anxiety 
  • You have difficulty focusing or experience foggy brain 
  • You feel alienated from your physical wisdom
  • You find it challenging to eat intuitively
  • You experience pain, muscle achiness, or stiffness in your joints
  • You feel addicted to activities that you know aren’t good for you… and yet you can’t stop
  • You feel anxious, upset, nervous, or downright cranky

 What do I do now?

In my health coaching practice, I lead my clients through a detailed, step-by-step 14-Day Cleanse, complete with cleansing menus, recipes, customized meditations, Q&A sessions, and daily guidelines.

If you answered “YES” to any of the symptoms above, then click here now to schedule a time to talk with me about cleansing. 

I’ll help you decide whether or not to do this reset, and if cleansing is right for you I’ll show you how to get started. 

To your best health in 2020!

A 5-Step Formula To Beat Procrastination And Get Things Done

A 5-Step Formula To Beat  Procrastination And Get Things Done

This is a Straightforward Guide How To Start & Finish Anything:

In 5 Effective Steps

S. Shoot for accountability

This is the most fundamental step of starting anything: a project, a career change, a personal transformation, even a new relationship.

We have to stay accountable that we are moving from wishful thinking to practical execution. Knowing what needs to get done is far different from doing it. Depending on your personality, staying accountable might mean different things. Some folks are innately more disciplined than others and can get away with merely adding a note on their calendar. If you feel hesitant to depend on other people to keep you accountable, do it yourself but be very strategic about it. 

For example: if you have been meaning to fix your car “forever”, adding a reminder on your phone that says “fix my car” is not helpful. Our brain does not follow ambiguous massages; it only follows clear instructions within a specific context.

A much more useful reminder would be “reminding myself to fix my car by Friday,” followed by a reminder “did I do it yet?” It is likely that you will feel quite uncomfortable if you don’t follow your own instructions. I mean, who else would take us seriously if we don`t keep our own word?!

T. Tune in to your “why”

Let’s move on to step two: finding your “why.” 

Whether you want to fix your car to prevent future damage, or you want to shed stubborn weight/change your job/travel more/learn a new language/etc, you can’t start without being clear on your “why.” 

I am sure you’ve encountered people who keep talking and talking about the vacation they wish to take or the healthier diet they are eager to adopt, without doing anything about it. Why? Because they are not clear on their why.  

To achieve clarity and solidify your motivation to s.t.a.r.t, take your journal, and answer these questions with your complete honesty and undivided attention. 

  •  1) My decision to start… (fill in the blank)
  •  2) By starting this…, I am looking to achieve…
  •  3) Starting this… is important to me because….
  •  4) Once I start…I am going to feel more

    (
    accomplished/disciplined/in shape/ choose the emotion that describes you best) in my life
  •  5) Starting this… is important to me because….
  •  6) If I don’t start right now, I will feel….

    (
    defeated/fearful/unfulfilled/far away from my goals/...choose the emotion that describes you best)

A. Aim for consistency

I know that you know that knowledge alone doesn’t equal behavior change.

Even after you have established accountability and are clear on your why, you still need to do it. Some projects get done in a day while others require our full commitment for an extended period of time. Before you start, decide what you want, then break it down to an attainable goal.  Instead of planning to remodel your entire home in one day, which sounds intimidating from the very beginning, make sure your goal is specific, measurable and achievable, realistic and time-bound. (read more here ).



Consistency equals discipline. 

R. Regain responsibility

Regaining responsibility stands for regaining control of your life. We are all human; we all experience days when procrastination seductively creeps in tempting us to give in. However, if you are committed to yourself, you regain your motivation much faster than if you were not responsible for your actions.

The power is in you; you just have to seize it.

T. Take action RIGHT NOW!

Whatever you would like to s.t.a.r.t, do it now. Write down your goal, call a friend, do a google search, order a book, talk to your spouse, go for a walk to clear your head, move your body, eat your veggies… Whatever it takes to get you started, do it. And do it now.

~ There is never a more in/convenient time than now. 

Just s.t.a.r.t.

How To Burn Fat By Resting

How To Burn Fat By Resting

Let’s talk about how to relax.

Why is this important? Among other fantastic benefits — when you are relaxed, you burn more fat.

When you’re stressed, you might do the opposite and hold the stubborn weight that doesn’t want to go away. According to case studies, when there is too much cortisol in our bodies (due to physiological or environmental stress), it often triggers fat accumulation.
While eating foods that are high in fiber, protein, and slow-releasing carbs can naturally increase our bodies’ ability to burn more fat, we can help the process significantly by merely slowing down.
When moving through life too fast, without taking enough breaks, we inevitably eat fast, which triggers a cortisol response, and diminishes our calorie-burning power.

Slowing down moves us from the fight-or-flight stress-state to the peaceful state of relaxation and inner calm.

Just by allowing yourself to relax more, you are likely to increase your metabolism and reach your fitness goals in a much more enjoyable way! 🙏🏼

Now it`s the perfect time to download my guide on chewing slowly: click here.

Not only that: the slower we eat, the faster we metabolize our food and the more sustained energy we have throughout the day.

The shortcut to turn off stress and activate a physiological relaxation response is conscious breathing. Conscious breathing simply means taking full deep breaths and holding them in for four counts before your exhale. Your nervous system will begin to calm down immediately.

You literally just have to breathe more deeply to switch on the parasympathetic nervous system. We have oxygen available to us 24/7, and it’s always available to use (thankfully!)

👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
Here is an easy exercise you can try:

✔️ Write your top 3 stressors.
✔️Now create your top 3 relaxers.
✔️Ensure eating slowly and are chewing your food.
✔️One busier days, take some time to stretch, do gentle yoga, go for a walk, meditate, or take an Epsom salt bath/long shower.
✔️Initiate regular intimacy with someone you connect to on a deeper level.

Quality intimacy is, by far, one of the best stress relievers!

Regardless of what you choose to do – when in doubt, just take a break to breathe and relax.

Recognize Your Hunger Cues (Step-By-Step Guide)

Recognize Your Hunger Cues (Step-By-Step Guide)

Use these guidelines to learn how to honor your hunger and understand your fullness cues

If you want to build healthy habits around food, what you eat is only a tiny part of the big picture.

We also have to look at:

How do we “Honor Hunger”?

  • Tune into your internal signal that the body needs nourishment.
  • Recognize hunger – learn the signs.
  • Create an intuitive inner scale from 1-10.
    • 1 is just noticing hunger, 10 is starving
  • Start to plan for food when you are at a 2.

How do we “Honor Fullness”?

  • Create a fullness scale from 1-10.
    • 10 is stuffed, 1 is still starving
  • Aim for an 8 on the fullness scale – nourished and energized, satiated but not stuffed.

I suggest that your follow these guideline for at least 3 subsequent days and observe what happens!

How To Achieve Glowing Skin

How To Achieve Glowing Skin

Have you ever busted your head searching for supplements, “miracle” facials, or super expensive skin products that will give you the glowing skin you deserve? I know I have. And it didn`t wor.

Of course, what we put On our skin matters tremendously. I am a devoted proponent of regular exfoliating and high-quality serums. However: if our hormones are imbalanced, if we are chronically stressed, dehydrated and consuming too many processed foods that cause inflammation — you guessed it, even the most expensive products will stop working.

What made the biggest difference for my skin is stress management, combined with getting enough sleep and eating a variety of smart fats, antioxidant rich fruits, and greens.

Here is my formula. Easy to remember and very effective.

It spells S.K.I.N:

S. — schedule regular facials that promote cell renewal in your skin

K. — taKe vitamin A, D and K (essential for healthy skin and bones)

I. — intake happy thoughts and lower your stress with meditation and exercise

N. — nourish yourself daily with omega 3 rich foods, vegetables and antioxidants

Sounds pretty simple? It is. Yet, personally, It took me a couple of years to nail it down. Why? Simple doesn’t mean easy. I am here for you to help you brainstorm what in your lifestyle makes attaining glowing skin difficult.

Remember that every change first starts in our subconscious mind. 1) acceptance, 2) letting go and 3) trusting the process. These are the steps of every sustainable transformation. How we look externally is a direct manifestation of how we feel.


The motto of my work is that everyone deserves to look and feel great. 🌺👇🏻♥️

My Story

I am so passionate about empowering women to transform their self-talk and build more confidence because I know how it feels to continually sabotage yourself, to feel disconnected from your body, and to avoid your reflection in the mirror – affirming that you are not “enough” and will never be loved for who you are. What a disempowering way to view yourself! But it was the Universe`s way to teach me what I know so that I could rebuild my confidence from zero to a hundreed. And you can do it, too!

Once I hit a low bottom of anxiety and low self-esteem in my early twenties, I finally realized that it is time for me to commit to moving forward from my past. During this process of trying different techniques and becoming a licensed coach (accredited by the Health Coach Institute), I learned how to love and accept my body, the way it is, by practicing mindful eating and self-love, walking with more confidence (with straight back, my shoulders back and my heart open to the world…), and feeling connected to my feminine power and inner beauty.

My clients and I are the living proof of the unlimited potential we all carry to uncover our unstoppable confidence and empowerment. It is never too early or too late to prioritize yourself!

Recent Testimonies

I have been more than thrilled about my experience with Ana-Maria! I am really impressed with her customized and agile approach to wellness and life-coaching. The progress that I accomplished in the first two months of collaborating with her is phenomenal, both physically and emotionally. The results came so fast and are so tangible that my motivation to get to the best version of myself is growing by the hour. I didn`t realize how much I already knew about wellness until I started working with Ana-Maria. However, she has been the driving force behind guiding me, keeping me organized and showing me ways of applying the knowledge I already have and the new knowledge that I am acquiring through her. I can`t wait to see how far she will help me to get in my journey of discovering my true self and being the best version of myself that I could ever be!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Ana-Maria!
