Victoria's Wilderness Trips!

Oprah Winfrey put out a video recently entitled "Make The Connection." The "connection" she urges you to make is between what is important to you and living in a healthy, normal weight body while you engage in this important activity. Her idea is that if you can connect yourself with what excites you, you will be highly motivated to be healthier. Some stores will have this Winfrey video for rent in the "Recent Releases" section, others in the 99¢ section. It is worth your viewing. Oprah has proven that her program works when she is on it and fails when she is off it. Oh! How I would love to do a video showing my BURN-OFF Adventure in The Wilderness and done with living Natural Hygiene! Since I have no such video funding at this time, I would like to share with you in print how my "Wilderness BURN-OFF Adventure" compares to Oprah's "Make The Connection" video.

Oprah's Lessons in...

"Make The Connection"

#1 Exercise 5 - 7 days a week.

#2 Exercise in "The Zone."

#3 Exercise 20 - 60 minutes each session.

#4 Eat a low-fat, balanced diet each day. (VICTORIA'S NOTE: "Balanced" here, of course, refers to "The Basic 4 Food Groups" of The Standard American Diet: grains, dairy, meat, fruit and vegetables which may be cooked.)

#5 Eat 3 meals a day & eat 2 snacks of 150 calories.

#6 Eat at least 2 fruit & 3 vegetables a day.

#7 Limit or eliminate alcohol.

#8 Drink 6 - 8 glasses of water a day.

#9 Stop eating 2 - 3 hours before bedtime.

#10 Renew your committment to healthy living each day.


Victoria's Lessons in...

"Run to The Wilderness!"

#1 Keep Moving 5 - 7 days a week. To BURN-OFF your fat, you may need more than 1 session a day. Every person's metabolism and situation are different! Some Health Seekers, while in the BURN-OFF period and not yet at maintenance, may even need not just 1 or 2 sessions a day, but 3 - 4! I did. To do 100 pounds during my 1 year in The Wilderness and not take 2, I kept moving, on the average, 8-14 hours a day, 4 weeks out of 6. I was in a hurry to get the job done and not take 2 years.

#2 Do some aerobics in "The Zone." ("The Zone" refers to getting the heart rate up so that you are sweating, so that your capillary beds in your cheeks are opened up and rosy with blood close to the surface!)

#2 Do some weight-work every other day (or 3 times a week). The muscles need a rest every other day to recover and mend and rebuild up stronger fiber.

#2 Do some stretching everyday. I cannot emphasize the value of stretching enough! Stiff, painful, weak, feeble muscles in time, with consistent stretching sessions will bring you suppleness, pleasurable movements, strength, grace, and youth!

#3 Keep Moving at least 20 minutes each session! "Sessions" may need to go much longer than an hour!

#4 Eat Hygienically each day. This will be "a low-fat diet": the fats eaten will not be heated and, therefore, will not be carcinogenic. This will be "The True Balanced Diet" of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.

#5 Eat only according to GENUINE HUNGER! For most Health Seekers, this is 2 - 3 meals a day.

#6 Ideally, eat raw fruit & vegetables, nuts & seeds. Minimize True Transition foods listed in The YearBook.

#7 Eliminate alcohol: it is a protoplasmic poison.

#8 Drink 6 - 8 glasses of water a day. If you are exceedingly active with your KEEP MOVING FAT BURN-OFF, you may drink much more than this! Also, read Your Body's Many Cries for Water.

#9 Stop eating 2 - 3 hours before bedtime: good idea.

#10 Renew your committment to healthy living each day. This is absolutely essential! At times, you may need to renew your committment minute-to-minute!
