Being “naturally thin” or “thinking thin” sounds like something out of another outrageous diet book or passing fad. But expert Marna Thall is tells us that you can lose weight without dieting. For more than 14 years, Marna has been studying and applying the laws and behaviors of the naturally thin to help people transform their lives and achieve the bodies they want and a life of balance and abundance.
Marna is an expert in the area developing a naturally thin life. Her story of rising from an overweight teenager in middle school to a naturally thin adult inspires thousands of people around the globe. Marna has authored several products, including “Naturally Thin Secrets” and the best selling challenge called “The 30-Day Blaster Challenge.”
Many overweight people would consider themselves “Naturally Fat,” so why can’t it be the other way around? And what sorts of behaviors and mindsets do the “Naturally Thin” use to stay that way? In the teleseminart I did with Marna she explains tons of counterintuitive tips and strategies to become naturally thin.
Here are 6 of the ‘Nuggets’ Marna has developed and techniques she uses to stay Naturally Thin (be sure to listen to the entire audio below for tons more information):
Honor your body and really check your eating habits. Eat because your body wants to eat and not eating based on emotions. Listen to your body and how your feeling. Be aware of the impact that food is having on your body.
Eating is like going to the bathroom. Going to the bathroom is purely physical, you don’t go to the bathroom when you do not need to. Same with eating, eat when you are hungry and not when you crave eating. You don’t crave going to the bathroom, you either do it naturally or you don’t.
When you are hungry, grab a piece of paper and write down what you need. Begin free writing and you will begin to address your emotions. Why are you feeling this need and what can you do to remedy this need without eating just because.
Deal with emotional things on an emotional level and deal with physical things on a physical level.
If you love going out to eat…Great! But add more to the food than just the eating. Think about what you will wear at dinner that night and how you will feel socializing with others. Bring other pieces into the picture and take the food out of focus.
Use a clock or a timer. When you are drawn to food and feeling hungry set a timer for 30 minutes. Do something you love to do for that half an hour (take a bath, read, socialize, shop). If after that 30 minute activity you still want to eat then you have now given yourself permission to do so….Don’t Say No, but take time to feel and connect with your hunger.
This interview was just tons of fun and I know you’ll get a lot out of what Marna has to say. Check it out here:

In this talk I interview Bud Bilanich who is known as The Common Sense Guy. He is a career success coach, motivational speaker, author and blogger. He specifically works with people in the corporate world, although his advise will literally work for anyone.
Bud’s information is powerful and straightforward. We cover “The 4 C’s of Career Success” which are Bud’s insights on achievement and being your best day in and day out.
Clarity, Commitment, Confidence and Competency have guided Bud throughout his successful journey. He is sharing them with you so they can guide you on your personal journey to the career and life success you want and deserve.
Clarity – Clarity of purpose and direction is fundamental to your career and life success. Success begins with a clear picture of how you define it, create a powerful mental image of your success.
Commitment – It’s simple. Success is all up to you, and me, and anyone else who wants it. We all have to commit to taking personal responsibility for our own success. I am the only one who can make me a success. You are the only one who can make you a success. Stuff happens, so choose to respond positively.
Confidence – If you believe in yourself and your success, you are likely find ways to make that belief come true. Surround yourself with positive people.
Competence – There are four key competencies that will help you become a career and life success: You have to be able to create positive personal impact. You have to be become an outstanding performer. You have to be a dynamic communicator – in conversation, writing and presentations. You have to build and maintain strong relationships with the people in your life.

If you haven’t checked it out, you need to know about Dharma Mix. These guys put inspiring messages to really cool beats so that we can soak ourselves in higher kinds of messaging.
I got a chance to do the voice over on one of their mixes, and I chose to do it on “Changing Your Story”. So many of us have bad stories going on in our thinking. Things like limiting beliefs, horrible opinions about ourselves, etc. I call all those things stories, because I think it helps us realize that we can change these things. When we realize we can change our beliefs by telling ourself a new story, massive change becomes possible.
So, one of the biggest things we can do as developing humans is learn to manage the story we’re telling ourself. I hope you download this “Fundamental Shift mix” that my buddy Jaya at DharmaMix.com mixed for me. Use it to help change your story, and click here to sign up for your free media vitamins from Dharma Mix right now.
And Be well!

We all have strategies or stories as to how the world works. Many psychologists agree that we don’t really see the world directly, we see it through our filters of reality. A child with an abusive alcoholic father will have very different strategies of trust than someone who grew up in a safe and loving family, as an example.
So our growing up gives us our filters, our opinions, our beliefs. The more we are sure that our opinions and beliefs are the right ones, the more “attached” to our world view we are. This attachment is fine if it works for you. But being full of these opinions and beliefs is what I mean by being “full”. There’s no room for new ideas, new strategies.
As a coach, a lot of what I do is help people take their limiting beliefs, and expose them. Bring the light of consciousness to them so the person can make a choice as to whether they should keep that belief “in their cup” or discard it.
You have no idea how many of us are running around with these kinds of thoughts: “I’m too fat.” “I’m not smart enough.” I’m not pretty enough.” etc. I help people learn to empty their cup and fill it with more appropriate world models. Then they have the skill to empty and refill on their own.
