Winning the Battle of Body Image
transforming your self image and propel your weight loss

All of us sometimes wake up on the wrong side of the bed . It’s these times when we look in the mirror and loath what we see in the reflection. This type of destructive behavior can have a detrimental effect on your weight loss efforts.

A negative body image is a distorted image of yourself, and is reflective of your self-esteem. Research shows that many dieters struggle to lose weight when they have a negative body image, and that improving how they perceive their body can make their weight loss efforts more successful.

When you feel proud of your body and have realistic views and expectations for it, your self image improves. People with positive body images may occasionally feel self-conscious, but they always appreciate their bodies.

Here are a few tips that may help you to appreciate your body more:

-- Seek a Healthier Body: Make it your goal to become healthier through activity and proper nutrition.

-- Spotlight the Positive: Admire and accentuate the things about you that you feel good about.

-- Keep Media Images in Perspective: When we look at people whose job it is to look gorgeous, we tend to under appreciate ourselves.

-- Value Your Body: Cherish the miracle of your body and what is does - breathes, moves, smiles, hugs and laughs. It truly is amazing.

-- Surround Yourself with Confidence: Build a network of people who contribute to your healthy lifestyle and eating habits.

Print this list, and see what you can add to it to help you feel better about your body. Post it on your refrigerator and review it often. Soon you'll be feeling better about your body. And soon you'll be looking better, too.

Have an excellent day.

1/2 cup - (100 g) soy flour
1/8 tsp - (0.5 ml) salt
2 oz - (60 g) ground roast hazelnuts or almonds
2 Tbsp - (30 ml) Steviva Blend or equivalent
2 oz - (50 g) butter
1 egg yolk
2 tsp - (10 ml) water

Ingredients Filling:
4 egg yolks
1/4 cup (50 g) Steviva Blend or equivalent
1 tsp - (5 ml) vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups - (450 ml) cream
3 tsp - (15 ml) gelatine
2 Tbsp - (30 ml) water

Ingredients Topping:
2 lb - (1 kg) no sugar added canned or fresh cherries (lowest glycemic effect) or berries of choice for variety
2 tsp - (10 ml) gelatine
2 tsp - (10 ml) rum

Directions Pastry:
1. Sift soy flour and add all dry ingredients together, with the Steviva Blend or equivalent in the center, on a pastry board.
2. Add the butter (softened), egg yolk, and water. Work the liquids into the Steviva Blend or equivalent, until it is creamy.
3. Now work in the soy flour mixture, as you would for any sweet pastry.
4. Press the dough into a greased cupcake or muffin tin. Prick the base of the pastry all over.
5. Refrigerate for 30 mins, then cook in a moderate oven (375F or (190C for 15 to 20 mins (until golden brown)

Directions Filling:
1. Put egg yolks, Steviva Blend or equivalent and vanilla into a bowl and beat until thick and creamy.
2. Heat cream carefully until almost boiling.
3. Combine the two mixtures, beating until smooth, then add the result to the top of a double boiler and simmer until it thickens (STIR CONSTANTLY).
4. Dissolve the gelatine in the water, and add to the cream mixture, stirring well until it is well mixed.
5. Allow this mixture to cool completely before adding to the pastry case. Refrigerate until it sets.

Directions Topping:
1. Soak the cherries in Steviva Blend or equivalent for 20 minutes. Drain and and reserve 1 cup (250 ml) of the syrup.
2. Arrange the pitted cherries artistically over the top of the tart.
3. Put the reserved syrup, gelatine and rum (we usually use cherry brandy or kirsch) into a saucepan and heat (stirring) until gelatine dissolves.
4. Cool the liquid and pour over the cherries. Refrigerate until set.

Don't be put off by the complexity of the recipe -- it is well worth the effort.
