The Tweak This Week - Spring/Summer 2024 - Week 6
Join Gina and Program Manager Kim as they answer your questions and break down the tweak that we see in The Program this week. This is the live recording from June 5, 2024.You can find the full video hosted at:https://www.facebook.com/groups/livymethodspringsummer2024Topics covered:Each week's tweaks flow into each other, helping you level up and move forward. What do you need this week to dig into downsizing one last time and level up? Levelling up - Taking what you are doing and doing better. Downsizing is not about eating less and less; it's about tuning into what satisfaction is for you. Flip it around: focus less on what you don't like and more on what you are getting out of it. Satisfaction is more than a feeling. Explore what the mental struggles, triggers, and old habits represent to you. Old diet dialogues about deprivation, starvation, and restriction. Find the glimmers: Working through negative associations constructively. Cravings, stress, and seasonality: How to support your body as its needs are changing. Tuning into what's on your plate: Getting into your belly, and out of your head. Downsizing too much? Portions are always about what they feel like, not look like on your plate. Next week's tweak: Feeding the metabolism - Getting even more in tune with portions. Always a rhyme and reason to why each tweak works on its own to get you into fat loss. To learn more about the Livy Method, visit www.ginalivy.com.
