fat elimination

This post deals clarifies why we get fat and how to get rid of fat and bad cholesterol.

What is human fat?

Human fat is made up of 3 elements – Carbon (77%), Hydrogen (12%) and Oxygen (11%).

The chemical formula for Human Fat is actually C55 H104 O6 – it may vary a little with regard to the number of Carbon or Hydrogen atoms but the Oxygen atoms always remains the same.

Elemental composition of C55H104O6:

Symbol Element Atomic weight Atoms Mass percent
C Carbon 12.0107 55 76.6868 %
H Hydrogen 1.00794 104 12.1691 %
O Oxygen 15.9994 6 11.1441 %

How do we get fat?

When you have purpose in life then you want what you do to be as perfect as possible.

Lean, strong and healthy:

Purpose is underpinned by a feeling of safety and trust – either in yourself or those close to you. Purpose leads to creativity and often leads to a feeling of wellbeing. A feeling of wellbeing often leads to people having more energy. People with purpose and energy tend to rest and sleep well and they also become more interested in maintaining this feel good feeling. This then promotes more exercise and a more balanced eating lifestyle. It leads itself more naturally topeople being lean, strong and healthy.

All this leads to having positive thoughts about yourself, this will create the natural body that flows with who you are. Be Super deal with how to achieve all of this (activation and prolonging of the PNS – Parasympathetic Nervous System) with VFP#0-Coherence.

Fat and unhealthy:

People get fat because they have no purpose and do not know who they are or what they want.

People also get thin for these reasons (phew that’s a relief – and it means you can look almost perfect and be unhealthy). The most important consideration is not how you look, it is whether you have optimal health and balanced hormones – not whether you are fat or thin.

So, on a more scientific basis what unbalances our hormones to make us fat?

The following video provides a more graphic insight into how we get fat:

This video clarifies that too much sugar can make us fat and also mess up our hormones.

The following video provides more insight into how significant our hormones are:

VFP#1-LiCrON / Regeneration – The LiCrON eating lifestyle provides all the insights and solutions you need to get rid of fat, balance your hormones and become super fit.

How to get rid of fat:

Principle – eating, using the LiCrON protocol (Low Insulin Calorie Restricted Optimal Nutrition), impacts 80% on the benefits compared to any type of exercise which will only benefit you by 20% (if at all). Exercise is most beneficial for health and fitness but not for weight loss – only nutrition (what you eat, when you eat and how you eat) will significantly impact on weight loss.

Upper body fat – often caused by overeating and inactivity; Get rid of it by reducing sugar intake and carbs and by undertaking more aerobic exercise (especially HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training) – you will lose the fat through breathing harder (when you breathe hard you are removing fat through CO2); and through sweating (when you sweat you are removing fat through water). The LiCrON protocol and VFP is the lifestyle guide that supports all this.

Lower abdomen fat – often caused by stress, depression and anxiety; Get rid of it by relaxing, meditating and simply breathing out the carbon dioxide and smiling. Also take the beneficial elixirs such as those from Superfoods4u and tonics such as green tea. The LiCrON protocol and VFP is the lifestyle guide that supports all this.

Lower body fat – often caused by excess carbs and gluten in your diet; Get rid of it by exercising against a resistance – by going up hill or against weights – generally exercising using your big upper leg muscles. The LiCrON protocol and VFP is the lifestyle guide that supports all this.

Lower a bloated stomach – often caused by excess carbs and alcohol; Get rid of this by undertaking The LiCrON eating lifestyle combined with Intermittent Fasting as they are perfect for balancing your hormones, reducing your calories and giving you more energy to use on exercise.

Lower body fat including lower legs – often caused by vascular problems and hormonal inbalance; Get rid of this by reducing sodium  / salt intake and reducing the overall calories – Use The LiCrON eating lifestyle combined with Intermittent Fasting as they are perfect for balancing your hormones, reducing your calories and giving you more energy to use on moving rather than sitting down.

A large stomach and a fat upper back – often caused by general inactivity and lack of good sleep – Get rid of this by undertaking The LiCrON eating lifestyle combined with Intermittent Fasting as they are perfect for balancing your hormones, reducing your calories and giving you a longer and restful sleep.

With VFP we focus on being slim and strong rather than on losing fat because it will have better results. However, for those of you who wish to know more about fat, please read on.

Fat is made up of triglycerides and cholesterol. 

Triglycerides and cholesterol are separate types of lipids that circulate in your blood. Triglycerides store unused calories and provide your body with energy, and cholesterol is used to build cells and certain hormones. Because triglycerides and cholesterol can’t dissolve in blood, they circulate throughout your body with the help of proteins that transport the lipids (lipoproteins).

Good and Bad Cholesterol:

What is cholesterol and where does cholesterol comes from?

Cholesterol is a waxy substance which is made in the body by the liver but is also found in some foods. It plays a vital role in how every cell works and is also needed to make Vitamin D, some hormones and bile for digestion. However, too much cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of getting heart and circulatory diseases.

Understanding HDL-cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol

Cholesterol is carried in the blood attached to proteins called lipoproteins. There are two main forms, LDL (low density lipoprotein) and HDL (high density lipoprotein).

LDL cholesterol is often referred to as “bad cholesterol” because too much is unhealthy. HDL is often referred to as “good cholesterol” because it is protective.

Removing LDL from the blood as with The LiCrON eating lifestyle would be a highly effective and balanced approach to reducing bad cholesterol whilst maintaining good choleseterol, or alternatively, eating foods that contain no saturated fat or cholesterol would also reduce bad cholesterol – such as a vegan diet.

HDL cholesterol absorbs cholesterol and carries it back to the liver, which flushes it from the body. HDL is known as “good” cholesterol because having high levels can reduce the risk for heart disease and stroke. The LiCrON eating lifestyle also provides HDL.

What are triglycerides?

Triglycerides are a type of fat (lipid) found in your blood.

When you eat, your body converts any calories it doesn’t need to use right away into triglycerides. The triglycerides are stored in your fat cells. Later, hormones release triglycerides for energy between meals. If you regularly eat more calories than you burn, particularly “easy” calories like carbohydrates and fats, you may have high triglycerides (hypertriglyceridemia). The LiCrON eating lifestyle helps with balancing your hormones and removing tryglcerides.

What’s considered normal?

A simple blood test can reveal whether your triglycerides fall into a healthy range.

Normal — Less than 150 milligrams per decilitre (mg/dL), or less than 1.7 millimoles per litre (mmol/L)

Borderline high — 150 to 199 mg/dL (1.8 to 2.2 mmol/L)

High — 200 to 499 mg/dL (2.3 to 5.6 mmol/L)

Very high — 500 mg/dL or above (5.7 mmol/L or above)

Your body should only contain approx 1 teaspoon of sugar for 8 pints of blood (thats all the blood in your body) and this is normally stored in the liver, furthermore, it can be produced from protein and even fat – so you do not have to consume any sugar at all to provide the glucose your body needs.

The LiCrON eating lifestyle that utilises pathways such as Intermittent Fasting and Intermittent Ketosis are excellent ways to reduce bad cholesterol and triglycerides because they encourage your body to use fat for energy and this burns them up. This is different to eating sugar and Carbs for energy because when you burn carbs / sugar / glycogen for energy, then your fat is stored and your cholesterol and triglycerides remain and build up.

The LiCrON eating lifestyle provides solutions for high cholesterol levels and these may be shown to your Doctor or Nutritionist to avoid having to take statins etc.

Where does your fat go when you lose it?

So – the more you exercise ‘correctly’ the more carbon dioxide you will remove – this insight should also give you an idea of how much exercise you would need to undertake to ‘breathe out so much fat’. However, YOU WILL NOT BURN ANY FAT IF YOU ARE USING GLUCOSE FOR ENERGY – you will only burn fat if you are using fat for energy – simple!!

Maximum fat loss however, may be gained by consuming less and allowing your body to burn up the fat all by itself – this is a much faster and easier approach – and it is the basis of The LiCrON eating lifestyle.

Some of the negative effects of Covid-19 include:

  • Struggling to deal with loss and / or feeling isolated or lonely..
  • Joint pain, loss of energy and weakness.
  • Feeling unsafe and not knowing why.
  • Confusion and frustration with not understanding what is going on.
  • A lack of trust with people, situations and places.
  • The lack of stucture and order and not knowing what to do with your time.
  • Brain fog - not being able to concentrate or think clearly.
  • Struggling to have longer conversations and discussions about positive and creative opportunities - and too much negative talk.
  • Couples and families stuggle interacting together due to a lack of personal and joint purpose in life.

The severe isolation measures imposed by governments have been traumatic to the psyche of people; to the extent, many have the fear of getting tests done and or divulging the results to authorities for fear of loss of income or further isolation. Others live every moment on the edge of media releases and feel totally reliant on vaccinations and guidance and rules on how to live.

THE BIGGER PERSPECTIVE - FURTHER CAUSES OF NEGATIVITY . . .

Society has created a situation where many people have an overdependence on other people for guidance and regulations on how they live. This can be clearly seen with those people who have retired or are suddenly not working and do not know what to do with their time. For many people walking the dog, watching some form of day time TV and cooking, represent the limits of their activity. Their social interaction and discussions are based around such activity or in discussing the limitaions imposed on them and everyone else -

"very few people do something that is both creative and of benefit for themsleves and others; furthermore, they do not discuss the creative process for making this happen - they have lost (or never developed) this self-relience and love of life - they are lost within an 'auto-pilot' existence" -

THIS IS THE BIGGER PERSPETIVE THAT COVID-19 HIGHLIGHTS!

When individals within a relationship or within a family, educational, work or team environment, lack any purpose in life or don't have any creative ideas to stimulate their emotions or thoughts, then they are more dependent on external forces to influence their behaviour. The majority of outside forces are negative, therfore most of the time people will be negative. Covid-19 is not the cause of this negativity - it highlights the hidden problems faced by most people and society.

This post provides a short practical instruction on how to conduct a quick coherence / QUICK CALMING/POSITIVITY PRACTICE:

The optimal times for doing this practice are:

  • first thing in the morning whilst still in bed (before getting up)
  • First thing when you get to work or school etc.
  • every 90 mins once you are active and the day has begun
  • when you get back in bed to settle for a sleep.

It is perfect when combined with other people (especially smaller groups) just before a meeting/lesson/meal.  It may even be used by a family group or a group of friends or work/school/college friends - perhaps in conjunction with an agreed 'positive statement/affirmation'.

Whilst it helps to reduce stress; with the 'the more advanced breathing progression' it is most beneficial in promoting a feeling of wellbeing and positivity; and in activating your parasympathetic nervous system (your feel good system). Once activated this may lead to positive stimulation that facilitates exceptional mental and physical performance, or, if you are relaxing, it will lower your heart rate, lower your brain frequency and promote better rest and natural sleep patterns. When a calm and positive state is maintained for longer and longer periods (with monitoring and practice) then it leads to 'flow' and extends the 'optimal arousal zone'.

Quick Coherence only takes 1 - 2 minutes (it is best done with your eyes closed):

Welcome - By following this short process you will feel calm, positive and energised. The process will work even better when you smile during the process and continue smiling after it has finished - let us begin - you may keep your eyes open or close them - do whatever helps you focus . . .

  • Focus your attention on your heart just to the left of centre in your chest. If it helps, place the fingers of your right hand over the heart so you can physically feel your heart beat - then relax.
  • As you breathe in, visualise the air going into your heart. As you visualise breathing in, count to between 4 and 7 and with each count visualise your heart expanding your belly. Continue doing this until you find your own natural timing. Once you have established your natural breathing in cycle move to step 3.
  • As you breath out and feel your belly go down, visualise either:
    • a special place that makes you feel good; or
    • visualise what you are doing that makes you feel so good;
    • and /or visualise a person or group of people that makes your love come out.
    • as you become more familiar with this, and as it becomes easier to do - focus on giving appreciation or gratitude to someone and allow your love to come out.
  • More advanced breathing progression - once you have become familiar with all of the above - then as you continue with the heart felt focus - PROLONG the breathing out stage, so it is between 3 and 5 seconds longer than your breathing in stage. Then continue this staggered breathing cycle for between 1 and 3 mins. This will physiologically activate your parasympathetic nervous system and stimulate creative and happy hormones.

Adopt quick coherence as a pattern of positive performance:

The quick coherence practice, including the more advanced breathing progression, may also be used in the build up to a high performance related activity - especially as a precursor for being in the flow zone. This is perfect for activities such as climbing or skill related performance or even high intense muscular activities such as arm wrestling, powerlifting, strongman event and surprisingly combat sports - because the more you can perceive stress as a positive opportunity, the greater you will maximise your optimal flow zone perform to your maximum potential. When stress is perceived as being negative, it increases anxiety, increases muscle tension, reduces reaction times and speed and reduces power. Negative stress leads to a quicker loss of energy and reduces mental clarity and sharpness.

Smile and be positive.

Group / team coherence:

Imagine the benefits to a team if you all acknowledged gratitude for one another prior to starting a more physical warm up or at the end of a warm just before you went out to compete. This would minimise stress and allow you to perform at even higher levels of intensity for much longer.  

When Phil Jackson began coaching the Chicago Bulls - and later the Los Angeles Lakers - he says he used the Zen philosophy of mindfulness to help build both teams.

Coherence practice is used by the NHS in Derbyshire:

Quick coherence may be used to overcome feelings of anxiety, stress and help calm you or someone else down when they are feeling their behaviour is becoming more challenging to others.

Monitoring and measuring coherence can be done using new technology and with the correct insights.

Elimination is the lowest level of consciousness and calibrates <20:

The strategy for getting yourself or someone else out of this stage is provided below:

The VFP strategy for achieving higher/more positive 'natural patterns / cycles of being' is to re-tune your mental and emotional energy fields, so they do the 'right things' on an automatic basis (using your autonomic nervous system), rather than a cognitive basis (having to think and feel if what you are doing is working).

This approach is more significant when dealing with those at the lowest levels of consciousness. Such individuals 

  • You must have natural cycles of imbalance in your life. These should be positive in maximising you as a physical being. Look at every situation as an opportunity!
  • You should maximise the functioning and capabilities of your physical body/mind.
  • You should maximise your individual creativity and find purpose in all that you do.
  • You should be your best and give yourself for the benefit of all.

When you do this you will find love will allowed to flow from you and you will attract it!

You can’t tune into Love when you have negative forces influencing you - 'love is felt through tuning in to the truth'.

Love is not felt when someone is holding you back and not caring for you as best they can.

You cannot hold other people responsible for their imperfections in respect of your relationship. You need to break negative cycles with people - this does not mean you have to stop being with them, or loving or caring for them; but it does mean you must take responsibility yourself for following more positive natural cycles. If you are not capable of allowing love to come out of yourself for your TRUE SPIRITUAL BEING then your imperfect physical being will dominate your life. You must learn to let love come out by turning negative thoughts and emotions into opportunities to help yourself and others.

You must stop feeling sorry for yourself and you must stop using others as an excuse.

You are not an 'imprisoned physical being' - you may feel like one, and may be treated like one - but you have the opportunity to change this.

When your mind thinks with moving pictures rather than thinks with words (self-talk), then the results/benefits are significantly better.

Mental imagery is a more intuitive process than an intellectual one. It allows you to influence and take control of your unconscious and subconscious; whereas self-talk and worded affirmations focus your influence within your conscious mind.

For most people the language of imagery is commonly experienced during REM sleep at night or whilst daydreaming. However, becoming aware of images whilst waking simply requires us to give it more focus than we currently do. Most people self-talk rather than self image!

Scientific research confirms the benefits of imagery for improving health:

Doctors prescribe pharmaceuticals that control the mind through the body; eg. tranquilizers, antidepressants and anaesthetics. In much the same way, we can use the mind to control the body - and imagery is far more effective at doing this than self talk. There are at least two major scientific journals devoted to imagery research; one from Marquette University (The Journal of Mental Imagery) and one from Yale University (Imagination, Cognition and Personality).

Mental imagery may be used as a process for reacting to experiences (negative or positive), however, it is more powerful when used as a way of 'creating new experiences'. After successive repetitions/cycles (21 days being a natural cycle time that changes behaviour) then the physical body attunes with the mind to make the mental imagery reality - THIS IS A PROVEN BENEFIT!

Within the VFP Digital Tuning Chart we have created audio links that explains how to use imagery to help create your own good health (this is an ongoing development).

 

HRV (Heart Rate Variability):

In terms of 'measuring SPIRITUAL BEING REALISATION' or 'SPIRITUAL COHERENCE' - it may be measured on a physical basis by HRV (Heart Rate Variability). However, what you have to realise is that SPIRITUAL COHERENCE extends beyond your physical being and HRV is therefore limited in its potential to measure the higher levels of consciousness. It would be reasonable to estimate that below the level of 200 HRV is low and not smooth. Peak HRV will start and continue at a level of approx 250. Above this level HRV will peak but it will not indicate your level of consciousness - this can be better estimated using the VFP Digital Tuning Chart.

The similarity between SPIRITUAL COHERENCE and HRV, is that HRV maintains 'high activity, smooth sine wave cycles' regardless of the heart rate or brain wave frequency (excitatory or inhibitory) - and SPIRITUAL COHERENCE maintains 'natural/balanced cycles of smooth waves - that can be excitatory or inhibitory' - so they are very similar to measure!

When SPIRITUAL COHERENCE occurs, on a physical basis, the heart and brain waves become more synchronised / tuned in to one another on an autonomic basis. The important aspect to measure is not whether the heart or brain frequencies are high or low - but that the 'HRV is high and smooth', thus showing a willingness and readiness for either positive/excitatory or negative/inhibitory states. Good coherence indicates a wide range of optimal flow zone frequencies (an ability to perceive stress as a positive challenge, rather than something negative to overcome).

Coherence and a good HRV are indicators of:

  • Positive relationships.
  • Creative initiatives between positive people.
  • Problem solving and group decision making.
  • Bonding and mutual support.

Quick coherence practice is only part of the VFP Tuning Protocol; By following the VFP retuning protocol you will reduce and prevent the negative effects of stress, fatigue and exhaustion, sleep disruption, anxiety and burnout - you will feel calm, positive and energised.

VFP uses the Inner Balance App in conjunction with the Bluetooth sensor from Heart Math to measure HRV. By recording your HRV before any interventions/therapy sessions, during the sessions and after the sessions we can better evaluate the impact of our VFP Protocol.
