Welcome to Hungry Gopher.
My name is Sun Chung aka Hungry Gopher.
The New Year is almost upon us.
This is a great time of the year to reflectand make New Year's resolution to ensure that you have a great start to 2017.
Some of you might already know my story aboutbecoming medicine free after relying on steroidal medicine over 3decades to combat a chronic skin condition, called Seborrheic dermatitis.
I achieved this by changing my lifestyle.
The pillars of the change werealtering my diet and modifying small things in my life.
So I want to share 3 radical ways to improveyour health, lose weight, and stay on course.
Number 1, Reframe your mindset.
Work with your body and mind, not againstthem.
I worked against my body for many years bysuppressing my immune system by taking harsh medicine.
When I learned that I could support my immunesystem by supplying healthy quality nutrition andremoving highly inflammatory foods, everything changes.
I was not only able to get off the medicinefor first time in my life in 30 years, but I also lost a total of 14 lbs/ 7kg thatI had never been able to shed over the years.
Your body is not your enemy.
Rather it’s your best friend.
So treat it well and listen to your body.
Number 2, Do not over exercise.
In my opinion, this is the number one reasonthat people experience the ‘yoyo’ effect with their weight.
I used to bean avid swimmer for many years.
Last year I learned thatone of the factors that contributed to my chronic skin condition wasthe ongoing exposure to low levels of chemical toxicity.
The swimming pool I frequented had a highamount of chlorine in the pool, so much that Mr.
Lunch smelled chlorine onmy skin, even after I had showered.
So I quit swimming and started doing moregentle exercises, such as progressive stretching, mindful yoga,and walking outdoors since I enjoy the fresh air.
Even though I was doing less cardio exercisedue to the changes I had made, my belly really tightened up.
I never thought that would happen.
So be smart about what type of exercise youchoose to do.
Do something that you enjoy in a moderateamount, so the practice is sustainable and enjoyable for you.
If you go overboard with a new workout,you will most likely find yourself abandoning the over zealous routine.
Have a challenging, yet realistic goal.
My chronic inflammatory condition developedover the years.
It didn’t happen overnight.
If you are currently overweight or you aresick, the same applies to you.
These things don’t just happen overnight.
So give yourselfa goal that is a little challenging, but achievable.
Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Things will take time.
We tend to overdo it and then crash.
This is a sure bet,you’ll get disappointed and give up on your goal.
The chances are you’ll be making some progress,but it might be slower than you anticipate.
A great way to ensure that you stayon your goal is to focus on your ‘wins’.
It can be small things.
Write down your ‘wins’ everyday so youcan focus on the improvement you are making towardsyour goal rather beating yourself over how far left you still have to go.
Write a small win everyday.
Your body has an incredible healing powerinside it.
IF and only IF you provide it with the rightenvironment and the right nutrition.
As you get healthier, you’ll get in bettershape and be happier.
Work with your body and mind,not against it.
