6 Mindful Ways To Lose Weight

The new year symbolizes a new beginning, and a chance to celebrate life more fully. So as we enter into 2015, committing to our resolutions, let’s set ourselves up for success.

My friend and yoga expert, Wayne Lehrer, is a celebrated author of The Prodigy Within, a program geared to discovering your life’s purpose. Wayne has studied the science and the spirituality behind living an enlightened life and developing a set of guiding principles that will help you become your best self.

Here are 6 of Wayne’s tips that will help elevate your mind and body in 2015:

Walk In Gratitude, Live In Grace

[If you’re looking for an uplifting way to embrace life on a daily basis, treat yourself by going on a gratitude walk!

To do this, simply step outside and enjoy nature while you quietly reflect on the gifts you’ve been given. Then after 10 minutes, pump up the pace and turn your gratitude walk into a calorie-burner with the FREE 30-minute Lean Walk download here]

Change Your Story, Change Your Life

Be conscious that everything that comes out of your mouth shapes your reality. When you speak in a positive and uplifting way about yourself and others then that is the world you live in.

Put On A Happy Face

Though this may seem terribly trivial, when you change your face you change your state of mind and how the world sees you. Try an experiment; see how you are feeling, find a positive thought and lift the corners of your mouth (smile): a simple change, an enormous difference.

Practice Loving Kindness

When you treat your body, mind and spirit with loving kindness you receive a great gift and have so much more to give to others. If you are to live 80-100 years and fulfill your dreams, you must pay attention to what makes you flourish, eliminate things that don’t serve you and gain the wisdom to know the difference.

Learn To Let Go — To Live In The Flow

Be Of Service

From sharing supportive words, to volunteering, to fulfilling your life’s purpose, being of service improves the quality of your life as much as those you serve by affording you abundant opportunities to share your talents, gifts and passions. Ask yourself the question, “If I had 6 months left to live what do I most want to be remembered for?”

When you walk by a magazine stand or bookstore, the numbers on the covers alone can cause confusion: “99 ways to drop 10,” “86 ways to eat better,” “25 secret fat-burning foods.” The ReShape program cuts through all the hype and focuses on the science behind food and our bodies.

The ReShape program uses what scientists know about nutrition and exercise to make our bodies as efficient as possible 24/7. Small changes can mean the difference between burning fat during a workout (which is great) and breaking down muscle (which is not so great). My program focuses on:

  • What you eat
  • When you eat
  • How and how frequently you exercise
  • How you combine exercise with the proper food fuel


Although the science behind my diet is complex, you have to remember only one simple equation:

Protein + Vitamin C + Fiber = Weight Loss 

These are the ingredients your body craves for optimum health, and they are the backbone of every meal you eat on my program. I will teach you how to choose super foods that fit this equation and that fuel muscles, shrink fat, and boost your overall health. Once you can identify the foods that contain these essential ingredients, knowing what to eat becomes second nature.

When you combine my structured workout plans with the ReShape diet’s science based approach to nutrition, you create a powerful weight loss program that will make feel better and stronger while achieving your weight loss goals.  So jump into my six week ReShape Turnaround Program and start changing your life today.
