Healthy Inspirations:The Solution for Healthy, Lasting Weight Loss!

Healthy Inspirations empowers women to change their lifestyle habits so they lose weight and feel good for good.

The women's only exercise and weight loss centres located around Australia help women get out of the rut of yo-yo dieting and dependency on special diet foods.

Members typically lose two to four kilograms a month when they follow the Healthy Inspirations program with four components: an individualised eating plan using regular supermarket foods; one-on-one coaching three times a week; simple exercise; and relaxation therapy in a massage chair once a week.

Unlike other 'miracle' weight loss solutions that are impossible to maintain, Healthy Inspirations helps women learn new healthy eating, exercise and relaxation habits for life.

The notion that all diets work but people don't stick to them is overcome with close monitoring, support, accountability and follow up three times a week and that's what makes all the difference.

Unlike women's gyms, Healthy Inspirations centres are personalised, with no overcrowding and are non-intimidating for women of all ages, shapes and sizes.

Four essential components to healthy, long term and successful weight loss include:-

Nutritional Program
Did you know that 80% of successful weight loss is learning how to eat in a healthy way that sustains an energy deficit? At Healthy Inspirations, members learn how to select and eat regular supermarket foods as part of dietician-supported eating plans that are sensible, filling and tasty. The bonus is the whole family benefits and everyone can incorporate this eating plan into their lifestyle and maintain it forever.

One-on-One Coaching
The National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) says people who want to lose weight need regular contact and support from health professionals. At Healthy Inspirations, members meet with our trained Lifestyle Consultants up to three times a week during the Healthy Weight Loss stage. These quick but crucial visits help members stay focused and ensure they are accountable for their eating and exercise habits.

Easy-to-follow Resistance-Based Exercise Circuit
A 30-minute fitness circuit is part of Healthy Inspirations' healthy weight loss and exercise program. This Australian-made equipment is fully adjustable and lets members exercise in an easy, non-intimidating circuit that is monitored and adjusted to suit each woman's needs. Outcomes include improved weight management, improved muscle tone, improved confidence and new friends. All of this is done in a friendly, relaxed and fun environment.

Relaxation Therapy
Although less recognized, weight gain and successful weight loss is influenced by life stresses and pressures. Hunger can be triggered by stress-induced hormonal imbalances. So, at Healthy Inspirations members can enjoy a weekly relaxation session in a luxurious Shiatsu massage chair. Located in a private room, you can lie back and relax in complete privacy.

Healthy Inspirations has been in Australia for almost 5 years and now has 22 centres around the country. If you want effective, long term, healthy weight loss that lasts for life, give Healthy Inspirations a call.

Awakening to Self:A Full Day Satsang & Deeksha Retreat! Health, Wellness and Lifestyle!

Freedom (from fat-phobia) Fries.By Jessica Prentice

Jessica Prentice offers us her wonderful recipe for chips or fries using tallow, lard or poultry fat. If you still think all that animal fat can’t be good for you, check out Lori Lipinski’s wax on fat. Personally, since using more animal fat in our diet, my skin is more soft, my hair more lustrous, my musculature more toned and my sexual desire stronger. I’ve never felt so good and my husband agrees - he thinks I feel good too. It hasn’t made me fat to eat fat, grains do that to me, so much for the low fat paradigm. I’m grateful I have found fat freedom and these freedom fries top it off. (more…)

For a Good Cause: Support the 40th Anniversary of Walk Against Want!

In March 2006 people around Australia will take steps against poverty as Oxfam Australia celebrates the 40th anniversary of Walk Against Want. Registrations for the Walk are open as of 24 January, and Brisbane's Walk takes place on 12 March.

Brisbane's walk starts in the Botanical Gardens and follows a scenic route along the Brisbane River. Some participants will walk to the cliffs at Kangaroo Point and back for a five kilometre trek, while others will press on to the Story Bridge and back to the Gardens-walking a full ten kilometres.

This year's walk will feature Bollywood music and dance from the Brisbane Babas Band, as well as a performance by the Nunukul Yuggera Wantamaa dance troupe. Pets are welcome to participate with their owners and the route is wheelchair friendly.

This money is put to use supporting Oxfam Australia's work with poor communities in developing countries around the world, helping to provide these communities with access to needs like fresh water, health services and education.

Be a part of history and join the 40th Walk Against Want in Brisbane on 12 March 2006. To register, or for more information, visit or call 1800 034 034.
