Maintain Healthy Weight

Mind & Spirit

A healthy weight is a natural state your body wants to be in.  As you honor your body by calming and balancing the mind and spirit, the cells in your body will release fat and toxins naturally.

Work on self-love. When you accept yourself your cells relax and your body produces healing happy chemicals.

Develop a belief that a healthy weight is your natural balanced state

Reduce stress & play daily

Cleanse & Restore (30-day Cleanse & Restore)

Smart & Sassy TrimShakes

The dōTERRA TrimShake can be a great meal replacement for one or two of those small in-between meals or snacks.  Remember not to skip meals!!  Skipping meals slows down metabolism!! The TrimShakes are great for the busy people.  These shakes tastes great with almond milk.  The TrimShake is another powerful tool in the Smart & Sassy Program. It comes in chocolate, vanilla and vegan.  As a meal replacement shake or snack it will help you to reduce the number of calories you consume without a feeling of deprivation. 

It is a clean whey-based protein which is so difficult to find because most protein powders are loaded with artificial sugars or sweeteners in order to make them edible.  This shake contains stevia as a sweetener.  You can add berries and other things to suit your tastes.  There is also a vegan version of the TrimShake made from proteins from peas.

Energy & Stamina

Here is another tool to help balance your metabolism.

Sometimes when we have a big day, we may need extra energy.  Introducing Mito2max. 

It is easy to use and is all natural supplement.

Promotes efficient production of ATP in the mitochondria of cells
Enhances stamina and efficient use of oxygen
Supports metabolic adaptation for diverse activities
Improves mental energy

This product is designed to help your body get the most energy out of the fuel you already put into your body.  It basically works on a cellular level to help your cells produce more energy.

Activity: pass around a Mito2Max and share any experiences or stories

ATP means Adenosine Triphosphate, which is a nucleoside triphosphate used in cells as a coenzyme often called the “molecular unit of currency” of intracellular energy transfer.  ATP transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism.

Muscle & Joint Support

A part of your weight management efforts must include moving more and exercising.  Aches and pains sometimes prevent people from making progress and being active.  The last tools we will talk about today are the Ice Blue products (called Deep Blue in the US).  This essential oil blend is soothing to the muscles & joints. 

  • Deep Blue comes in the form of an oil, a rub, and a supplement.
  • The Deep Blue essential oil is applied topically wherever you have aches or pains associated with exercising.  The Ice Blue essential oil works great with the AromaTouch essential oil massage blend in soothing and warming sore joints and muscles.
  • The Deep Blue rub is made from all natural products.  The rub form of Ice Blue aids in application and sustains the release of the essential oil over a longer time.  To get the full effect, put the essential oil directly on the sore muscle for immediate effect and add the rub for a sustained effect over a longer period. 
  • The Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex is marketed as part of this range of products.  It contains polyphenols to help address internal aches and pains.

These products are ideal to help your efforts to be more active and take control of your weight and your body.
