QUESTION:
Hej Filippa! Tack för en bra blogg och grattis på 30-årsdagen! Jag följer din blogg sedan ca 1 år och hade tyckt det varit roligt att veta lite mer om dig, inte bara det som är raw-food-relaterat! 🙂 Typ hur kommer det sig att du växte upp i USA medan din familj verkar bo i Sverige? Din fästman är svensk, hur träffades ni? 🙂 Hur länge vill du bo i New York? Skulle du kunna tänkta dig att flytta till Sverige igen? Ja, lite sånt! 🙂
ANSWER:
Hey there!
Thank you for reading my blog, and for that long, wow. I am grateful. Hope it has brought health and balance to your life.
I moved to the U.S. when I was 7 years old and have grown up in Westport, CT & Miami, FL – the reason being my father’s work. The last 8 years have been spent in New York City, in the PR Industry. I run a firm called LFB Media Group, which focuses on events, restaurants, fashion, etc. So this month for example we’re doing the official lounge of Fashion Week, called The Daily Style Sessions and the backstage gift lounge at the Emmy Awards (sidenote, we’re always looking for interns… but you must have school credit). My fiancee Stefan is Swedish, we meet in New York in Battery Park on Midsummer, he was only supposed to come for a year, but ended up staying three. True love.
Funny that you ask the question how long I want to live in NYC… I have been thinking about that lately. Would love to bring a bunch of fun ideas on how to make our little Scandinavian country healthier.
Other facts…. favorite color: white (yes I know that’s not a ”real” color”)…. favorite #: 11…. Sign: Virgo… Loves: miracles, bikram yoga, true friendships and good hair products
xx,
Filippa

HAPPY BIRTHDAY… TO ME!

Today I turn the BIG 30! Wow. Feel very grateful to be this age and for all the experiences & gifts the Universe has brought me at this point.

My b-day present? A trip to Turks & Caicos… Leave on Thursday. Ahhh sun, white beaches, and fresh fruit.

NEVER DIET AGAIN…

happy-woman-eating

We’ve all said the phrase, ”I need to go on a diet” (most of us at least)… Some of you may have opted for the Aktins Diet, while others went straight to the Cookie Diet (yes it exists). There are so many out there right now, yet none of them really work. Why? Because you loose temporary weight, which you usually gain back.

We don’t change our bodies with force, deprivation, punishment, or guilt. And upcoming events, for ex. ”my sister’s wedding” or ”my birthday,” won’t create long lasting health either…

So what is the key to a strong, balanced and healthy body? Well the number one thing, is dealing with your emotions and pain. Feeling and releasing them, instead of pushing them deeper and deeper into the cells of your body. If you do so, they will only float up to the top and resurface again and again…. and again. And you will only comfort yourself with more and more food, followed by punishment, with less and less food. Evil cycle as you can see.

Geneen Roth had it all – from anorexia to bulimia to emotional eating, to binging – you name it, she had it. BUT today she is free from all of that. Instead she deals with her feelings, follows her intuition (eating by listening from the body, not mind), and lives by the guidelines below. If you try the guidelines, don’t make these guidelines rules, be kind and flexible with yourself. Discover what your body REALLY needs… discover that their is more to life than eating.

1.) Eat when you’re hungry

2.) Eat sitting down in a calm environment

3.) Eat without distractions (No TV, no books, no iPhone, nada)

4.) Eat with enjoyment and pleasure

When you constantly focus on food, you are not focusing on the issues that need you the most. Can you imagine what your life would be like if food was just healthy fuel and not a 30 minute convo in your head? ”Should I eat the bagel? How many calories is in that? How much exercise would I need to burn it all off? Is a whole wheat version better? How will it make me feel? I think I need the bagel regardless, etc.”

If your body size and food are always on your mind, try to figure out what the real problem is? What is food trying to express? Get a piece of paper and a pen and ask/answer these questions.

What part of your life do you not want to be living? How do you feel about yourself? What’s really going? What physical emotions do you have in your body right now? How can you change?
