Freedom from the Overindulge-Bulge

Part of it comes from managing mind andemotions, and the rest can actually be addressed with physical habits.Mentally we must begin with a choice to be clear and uncluttered; adesire to become our best and highest expression; a commitment totake control into our own hands, and be at peace in our body, ratherthan a repressed pawn of the industrial culture.The emotional component requires us to let go of addictive emotionsand old patterns that create stress hormones. Whether we do thiswork alone, through dialoguing with friends or a men’s or women’sgroup, or find a counselor or body/breath worker who specializes inemotional clearing – most of us have some emotional issues withwhich to get into right relationship.Physically we can put certain habits into motion that over time willshift hormones and body function towards leanness:
