diet/bingeCycle break free of tHe

With her revolutionary approach to weight loss, local Hungry Heart counselor Lauren Grant is helping her clients shed pounds and inches permanently— just by changing the way they think about food.

Here is Her remarkable approaCH to emotional over-eating... If you are one of the millions of Americans who try to lose weight each year— and fail— the Hungry Heart owner Lauren Grant wants you to know the solution could be locked in your brain.

says. The Hungry Heart helps its clients handle their emotions independently of the food.

Hypnosis helps us to get out of our own way so that we can efficiently achieve our goals.”

It’s not a diet, she notes, instead, it’s about changing one’s mindset. Hypnotherapy, behavior modification, and nutritional counseling work together to help you lose the weight—and keep it off.

“All hypnosis is self-hypnosis,” Lauren mentions. “You cannot be made to do anything that is not a part of your personal value system. The only things I can suggest during hypnotherapy are the things that you truly want to do.”

“I struggled for years gaining and losing the same weight over and over again,” Lauren shares. “I had tried every diet in the book, and struggled with stress eating and yoyo dieting for years. I didn’t have a program like Hungry Heart to help me. If I would have, I know I could have achieved my goals a lot easier. It has now been over sixteen years that I’ve kept the weight off.”

“We do an initial one-on-one consultation with questions and answers, then decide how to put a plan in place,” she says. “Everyone is different and determining what type of changes need to be made are unique to the individual.”

“I consult with emotional over-eaters, yo-yo dieters, binge eaters and people who are constantly making poor food choices,” she says. “What I share with my clients is that we have to change our thinking before we can be permanently successful at losing weight.” Most people try a diet, do well, and then gain the weight back, Lauren

What i share with my clients is that we have to change our thinking before we can be successful at losing weight. The hypnotherapy portion of the program, she points out, “is very effective in helping us to work with ourselves rather than against ourselves. Most of us know what we want to do but for some reason we are not doing it.

She likens the feeling of being hypnotized to driving a route you’ve traveled hundreds of times. “After awhile, your subconscious takes over. You might even miss your exit on the freeway, but you know that you are driving and could stop if the car in front of you stops.” “Sessions are conducted on an individual basis, so we can personalize them to your own core issues,” Lauren says. “The privacy of personal sessions allows clients to get comfortable and get their mind in the state it needs to be in.” “We focus on two things,” she describes. “First we find out how to help them discover what their motivations are for eating when they aren’t hungry. Then we replace eating behavior with something that serves them better.”

LeARn MORe:

find out more about the Hungry Heart, and schedule a consultation with Lauren Grant in South orange County, call 877-486-4797 ext. 301.

The nutritional counseling buffers the hypnotherapy by helping clients learn how to shop for the right foods. Part of The Hungry Heart program also includes suggestions for exercise. Incremental changes are best,” she says. “We don’t just refer everyone to a big gym. This is about having our clients come out of the program with a better quality of life, having made healthy decisions because they want to, not because they’re supposed to.” Lauren shares that with her program, 85% of clients will stop overeating in the first two or three sessions.

Free Consultation Mention this story when you call Lauren Grant of The Hungry Heart and receive a complimentary one-hour consultation. You can reach her at 877-486-4797 ext. 301. { Expires 1/31/10 }

Ross LOCAL COVER STORY

Medical Associates Modern Medicine. Personal Care. The Ross Way. BY Sarah Womack

Illness doesn’t always strike during traditional doctor’s hours. That’s why Ross Medical Associates has created a unique approach to caring for you and your family. On evenings, weekends and even holidays, you’ll find warm and friendly doctors and an attentive staff dedicated to providing personal, expert care at a location near you. to “The Ross Way,” Ross Medical Associates has recently expanded with a new location in San Juan Capistrano. The successful combination of family practice and urgent care from the same physicians you already know and trust is the perfect solution for today’s busy lifestyles.

State-of-The-Art technology

Ross Medical Associates understands that patients’ needs extend beyond 9 to 5 and Monday through Friday. They’ve responded to the community by offering both urgent care and family medical services in a single office... 365 days a year. Ross Medical’s extended hours, for example, help alleviate the stresses on working and single parents with convenient early morning and evening office hours. They take dedication to your health and wellness a step further with modern technologies such as digital x-rays, electronic medical records and prescriptions sent directly to your pharmacy or filled right in the office. Because patients have responded so positively

“We strongly believe that if we make it pleasant and convenient for patients to come in, they’re going to take better care of themselves,” says Dr. Pedro Carrillo, a veteran physician of more than 20 years who practices at the new location. “We offer an expert level of care, in addition to better efficiency and affordability than emergency room care. Plus, any member of the family can receive care from the same group of physicians any day of the week.” This remarkable medical group serves as a tribute to a groundbreaking icon in Orange County medicine, Dr. T.A. Ross. Instrumental in establishing Mission Hospital, Dr. Ross was also its chief of staff for many years. He realized his vision of combining family practice and urgent care in Mission Viejo with Oso Family Medical Group

over thirty years ago. His next two ventures, in Rancho Santa Margarita and Ladera Ranch, established the Ross Medical Associates moniker. The third location of Ross Medical Associates in San Juan Capistrano is the first to open since Dr. Ross passed away in 2008. His values and traditions, however, live on in each of the physicians and staff members. In particular, Dr. Ross’ knack for providing genuine care on a highly personalized level still resonates today. “Healthcare should always be a personal matter,” says Dr. Gebhard, a Partner at Ross Medical Associates. “That’s the way Dr. Ross practiced medicine, and we think it’s still the most effective method. We all make an honest effort to get to know our patients and become an ongoing part of their lives. The connections we share enhance the care we provide in so many ways.” We all know that a touch of genuine care can go a long way, but nobody knew it better than Dr. T.A. Ross. Thankfully, his personalized style of healthcare is still available today. Now, it’s available in San Juan Capistrano, too.

u o y california krav maga

a new decade

by Stephanie Graney

Each and every January, we vow to fulfill our New Year’s resolutions to get fit and healthy, but according to the obesity rate in America, most of us are still driving thru when we should be speed walking. If you feel like your backside is the size of Santa’s or you ate more than your share of sugar cookies and ham this holiday season; you’re not alone. Whether you hit the gym, the beach, or the pavement, make 2010 the year you start and stick to it. So put on some spandex, lay down your yoga mat, and blend up those leftover cranberries in a healthy smoothie.

Dance

The New Sport for Healthy Kids by Sandra Ishida

As a parent and Director of a local dance studio with over 450 preschool through college aged students, it’s my job to provide a safe and nurturing environment for every child enrolled. When looking for a new activity this year, why not consider a dance class? It’s fantastic exercise and a fun option for children and parents seeking a healthy lifestyle. In 2002, we opened Pacific Coast Academy of Dance (PCAD) in San Clemente. Since then, I’ve been delighted to witness how dance is more than exercise, camaraderie and yearly recitals. Experts agree; dance improves both the physical health and emotional welfare of children. We all know that excess weight can lead to life-long health problems including diabetes and heart disease. As children consume increased amounts of fast food and junk food and spend too much time indoors watching television or in front of computers, an unfortunate rise in childhood obesity has occurred. At the studio, kids learn about optimum nutrition from their teachers and dedicated dancers. For boys and girls alike, dance can become a passion for a lifetime that promotes healthy lifestyles and combats poor eating habits.

benefits:

Dance Provides Socialization. The interaction between dancers improves social and communication skills. Kids learn to cooperate and respect each other’s personal space. Dancers often move in unison, making connection and cooperation with others integral to the experience. Dance Empowers Students. Dance is an effective tool in improving body image, attentiveness, and self esteem. It can reduce stress, anxiety and stage fright. Dancers are known for excellent posture and standing a little straighter always adds confidence.

Dancers Can Qualify for College Scholarships. Applying for college is more competitive than ever, even with astronomical GPAs and SATs. There are simply too many wellqualified candidates. An ability to demonstrate a history of commitment to a sport, fine or performing art or a community organization shows maturity and emotional intelligence. Dance Builds Flexibility, Strength, Endurance and Stamina. Treva Bedinghaus at About.com attributes four positive health benefits to dance. Flexibility is important for kids and adults, because we tend to stiffen up with age. Dance classes begin with stretching exercises to achieve full range of motion for all the major muscle groups. Dancing builds strength by forcing muscles to resist against a dancer’s own body weight. Many styles of dance require jumping and leaping creating strength in the major leg muscles. Dancing elevates the heart rate and builds endurance and stamina. Television hit shows So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars are pop culture phenomenons. Some experts now claim that dance offers more health benefits than gym workouts. Specifically, dance movements are multi-directional versus straight forward motion, like on Stairmasters, treadmills, and elliptical equipment. Dance also requires agility, balance and various speeds of movement; skills that are typically not a focus in health clubs. Dance Assists Kids With Special Needs. In preparation for a recent event, I discovered that dance is therapy for children with autism. Autism is a spectrum disorder and research shows that autistic children need multiple and different types of stimulation to process information. Children hear music, process a sequenced pattern, dance the sequenced pattern and then repeat the process. It is hearing, processing, doing and repetition that builds new learning pathways in the brain.

HOT and HEALTHY

It is no secret that some of the best comfort food around is Mexican cuisine. This feeling not only derives from the food itself, but also through the neighborhood vibe that these special places possess. Indeed, this unique ambience is joyfully celebrated at Dana Point’s new Caliente Coastal Cantina. Housed in the former location of the Wicked Garden restaurant at PCH and Blue Lantern, Caliente offers an inviting, affordable, full-service dining experience that is ideal for lunch with friends or dinner with the family. Features like their all day Taco Tuesday special, a covered outdoor patio, 24 flat screen TVs and a bounty of reasonably priced entrees ranging from $7 to $10 all help to make Caliente feel like an extension of home. This great sense of community is perfectly balanced with the excitement of Caliente’s cuisine. Appetizers are called “Temptations,” and with good reason; items like their enormous Caliente Flautas, bursting with chicken and steak and served with a chipotle dipping sauce, are too mouthwatering to resist. Caliente is heavily focused on a healthy approach to some of their culinary offerings, such as their sumptuous pepitas, apple and bleu cheese infused Blue Moon Chicken salad and their chicken or carnitas version of their delectable pineapple tortilla wraps. Traditional fare is beautifully done at Caliente, as witnessed by their generously filled panko crusted grilled mahi mahi taco. Caliente rounds out this ambience through the creation of specialty drinks like their exotic jalapeno and mango Caliente Margarita and tasty Cerveza Margarita, where the flavors of Patron and Corona beer merge to create a most refreshing libation. Like any good neighborhood venue should, Caliente boasts an amazing happy hour, stretching from 3 to 7, Monday through Friday, featuring 2 for 1 drink specials to top off the day. All of these elements wondrously combine to make Caliente an ideal spot to drop by and unwind with your brood or your buds.
