When it comes to food, your brain is likely stuck on autopilot.
Your brain is always monitoring your body 24/7. Looking for what it (thinks it) needs.
That’s how humans are wired.
HOWEVER, as you’ve probably noticed, your brain often DEMANDS things you don’t really need.
No, I’m not talking about playing tricks on your mind, or hypnotizing you.
It’s a life-changing, ‘lean body’ method I’ve taught men and women around the world.
Right now, I’m going to share a secret:
It’s easier to sculpt your brain to sculpt your body... than it is to sculpt your body directly
That’s right. And at some level, you already know this.
Unless you’re a Navy SEAL, willpower and self-discipline... in other words, FORCING yourself to lose weight... rarely carries the day.
And it’s never effective long term.
I’ve discovered the secret to creating lasting weight loss, without all the dieting and exercising gimmicks is straightforward.
And that is to finally take charge of the body and sensory sensations you normally have on a moment-to-moment basis.
Yes I agree, it sounds weird. But it works. It really works.
Based upon the latest neuroscience, people who are overweight are ultra-sensitive to their body’s feelings. Especially when it comes to hunger, cravings and appetite...
What’s worse? At the same time, you’re being wired for instant gratification.
With willpower and self-discipline being so difficult to master, it seems like the ONLY OPTION is to cave in to the pangs, the urges and the cravings. BUT:
There IS a better way. A way to make eating food an enjoyable choice—no matter how we’re feeling about it at the time.
Again, I’m NOT talking about self-discipline and resisting the urge.
That rarely works. Most people are powerless against these urges.
Instead, I’m talking about being able to respond differently to urges and experiencing them less and less until… they disappear for good.
Hi, my name is Leah Santa Cruz and when people ask me what I do, I say:
Several years ago, I discovered a powerful and all-natural weight loss method.
One based upon an ancient ritual.
It all started back when I was a kid. Growing up, I was blessed to live next door to wild woods and unspoilt rivers.
There’s something magical about nature. Alone in the wild, I found it easy to slip into a deep, relaxing state of mindfulness.
But soon, the lure of the big city became too strong and I left behind my farm girl life.
After studying in neuroscience, I found myself landing jobs in the stressful world of start-ups and corporate tech.
I was surrounded by talented people. But many of the goals in this world were flash cars, trophy wives and fat 401ks. It didn’t make any sense to me.
Feeling disenchanted, I began to sink into depression…
That was the turning point. Something had to change.
I began to think back to my childhood. My ability to connect to nature.
Persuaded by a close friend, I schlepped myself into a local mindfulness class.
And immediately, I was hooked.
Right there and then, I set off on a ‘soul journey’. One that led me to study under some of the world’s most respected meditation teachers.
My discoveries inspired me to set-up my very own mind body practice. Teaching people the ancient, lost art of inner calm, TRUE peace and happiness.
I began to develop customized mindfulness methods to aid with anxiety, breaking bad habits and conquering health challenges.
Word of my methods quickly spread. And more and more people asked whether my training could help them get into shape.
Could mindfulness practice actually make somebody fitter, healthier… thinner? I asked myself:
Hunger. Appetite. Cravings...
These feelings... these body sensations... if we could learn to WATCH them without judgment... to remove “the pain” and suffering... for instance, if we only ate food when we were truly hungry... or if we only ate food that was good for us... weight loss WOULD BE A SNAP.
And THAT’S EXACTLY what I figured out.
Take my student, Mark. A mathematician, analyst and total skeptic.
In his own words Mark was:
Mark was dealing with huge amounts of stress every day. He had serious work and marriage challenges.
And maybe like you, he didn’t believe mindfulness could help. At all.
However, one night, he pushed ‘play’ on one of my videos. And drifted off to sleep.
When he woke up the next day? The difference was clear.
Mark felt unusually calm, relaxed and optimistic.
My videos showed Mark how, in just a few minutes each day, he could dissolve away stress, regain youthful positivity AND melt away stubborn, middle-aged weight gain.
In Mark’s own words…
“In the last few weeks I have been out in nature every day. Today I passed the 5 mile mark in jogging. My normal 14 soda a day intake has been eliminated altogether. Junk food is no longer in my diet. I no longer drink for need.
I went from having to unbutton my pants while sitting to the shrinkage of my waistline and now needing a belt again.
I can now sleep well again thanks to Leah. I cannot say if her program will have such a profound effect on anyone else - but for myself - Leah's program was the catalyst I needed to transform my life.”
Isn’t that wonderful?
All it takes is just minutes a day following a few, simple instructions.
As you can imagine our relationship with food is complex one, dating back to our very origins as a species.
People today like to talk about “life hacks”, or “computer hacks”. Ways of quickly getting the results you want without necessarily having to struggle or work or wait.
It all starts when you understand a little-known part of our brain neuroscience calls...
The Uh Oh Center has two primary parts. The first is called the insula...
The insula is what monitors body sensations. It helps guide how strongly you respond to what you sense in your body, such as hunger and appetite.
If you’re craving a Krispy Kreme donut or an In and Out Burger, the insula senses it. It even knows how bad you want one.
Then the insula works hand in hand with the amygdala...
The amygdala is the “Fear Control Mechanism.” It's the part of the brain responsible for many of our emotional responses and reactions.
Including the infamous “fight-or-flight” response. As in...
Or “I need a Coke.” Or “I gotta have a Pepsi”.
(As you know, marketing has figured out how to leverage our “Uh Oh Centers” for their own benefit. We’ll fix that in a bit. :) )
Now, if you were to look at people’s brains BEFORE they began their mindfulness weight loss practice?
You would see extremely strong neural connections in the “Uh Oh center” related to food. Specifically concerning hunger or cravings in the body.
With these strong neural connections in place? You are far more likely to think there is a threat related to your survival. And that needs IMMEDIATE attention.
This is why your reaction to food is so strong, powerful and immediate. It becomes a life and death moment, doesn’t it?
Even worse, it’s all unconscious. You have zero control.
As you can imagine, like with any neural connections, they get stronger the more they are engaged.
In other words, the more you crave? The MORE you crave.
It’s a vicious cycle. Getting stronger and stronger all the time.
Your neural bonds of appetite sensations start out as wispy threads. And later, they turn into steel cables that can hold up the Golden Gate bridge.
Best part? You can do it in just a few minutes a day.Now, if you follow this method as I do, as my clients do, on a regular basis… several near-miraculous things happen:
#1: Those impossible-to-resist food cravings begin to fade away
Those strong, tightly held food-based connections between your “Uh Oh Center” and your body sensations start to break down and dissolve.
Why? Because they’re not being used.
The reason they’re not being used is because the brain has learned how to win back control of feeling sensations like hunger and the threat of survival.
Your brain has finally figured out all by itself you’re not going to die or be harmed if you don’t eat unhealthy food for a few hours.
If you think about it, this is one big reason general anxiety attacks decrease the more you meditate. Your neural paths that link those upsetting sensations to the “Uh Oh Center” break down due to lack of use.
Said another way, your control over anxiety is magnified as you begin to break that connection between the unhelpful parts of the Uh Oh Center and your body’s appetite sensations.
As a result, you can see those sensations FOR WHAT THEY REALLY ARE--and not feel the need to respond as strongly to them.
#2: Stronger, healthier bonds form between logical centers of the brain and body sensations
The second benefit of my method is that when you experience body sensations like intense cravings, you are able to examine them from a more rational perspective.
You no longer automatically react and think it has something to do with fear or survival.
For example, when you get hungry at certain times throughout the day, rather than becoming anxious and throwing your thoughts into a “gotta eat something now” tailspin... you’re able to notice the hunger objectively.
This is HUGE! And it gets even better...
#3: Your dieting and exercising efforts are amplified
Free from the mental turmoil that comes with eating, cravings and hunger, you can now easily stick to your dieting and exercising regime. And experience WAY better results.
No more need for cheat days.
No more yo-yo dieting...
More importantly, no more self-sabotage!
To me, this breakthrough brain science and the very real rewards gained from my unique metabolic makeover method offer compelling reasons for a daily practice.
The results motivate you on those days when you don’t “feel quite like sitting.”
Remind yourself of that while putting my method to work for you every day.
It’s only for a few minutes. And makes those newly formed neural connections stronger and weakens those unhelpful ones
Now, in the past, I’ve offered my private mentoring to students on an individual or group basis, teaching my unique method at exclusive retreats around the world.
However, with the encouragement of the PaleoHacks team and a desire to reach more people, I’ve published my complete method in a professionally-produced video-based program.
My new weight loss program is called...
Mindfulness Meditations for Weight Loss is a COMPLETE mind-body system re-haul.
That’s because your mind and body are intertwined. In fact, the mind resides in our nervous system in many ways.
The sensors and neurons in your brain heart, gut, spine and body communicate with each other and direct your thoughts, emotions and behaviors. The mind physically affects your body and vice-versa.
You can adopt a Paleo diet, exercise and challenge your body daily. But without putting attention towards training the mind? You may find yourself slipping back into unhealthy habits.
This “two steps forward, three steps back” road can make your health and weight-loss goals a challenging one.
Consider my Mindful Body video series a way to “lock in” a lean body mindset, behaviors and habits going forward…
1. The bad habits and behaviors that keep you stuck in a particular “fat zone” begin to dissolve and ultimately fade away.
You feel free. Able to finally enjoy food the way it was meant.
2. Old habits holding you back are replaced with new, empowering ways to think about eating.
Results start showing in as little as 7-21 days. But even better, they can last a lifetime. In other words, no more yo-yo dieting.
3. Your appetite, hunger and craving thermostats are RESET--recalibrated for a person who eats much less food yet still receives all the nutrition and energy they need.
You are on “healthy eating autopilot”. No need for willpower or self discipline any more.
You’re able to eat normally again. For health. For nutrition. For energy.
In a word, eating for you becomes...
Inside Mindful Body you’ll also discover...
I think the program is an amazing resource for anyone looking for a clear path towards a healthier relationship with their body.
That being said, there are so many tools in there that can apply to whatever a person might be struggling with, whether it be anxiety, depression, or even chronic pain. I love the really nice mix of food for thought, guided meditation, journal exercises, mindful eating exercises.
I particularly loved the forgiveness video. It's amazing how much energy it takes to hold on to resentment and blame, and that can often manifest in weight gain and anxiety. We're literally holding onto the stuff. Your video is a very gentle but powerful way to remind us that when we refuse to forgive others for past hurts, we're really just continuing to hurt ourselves.
I also loved the visualization video. I've had a couple injuries that make moving around the world a bit painful, and just imagining myself moving throughout the world fluidly and without pain made me feel a little bit better when I got up again
"I observed the first session with earpods and eyes 3/4 closed staring at a 27" screen. Leah's voice and radiant presence, combined with most beautifully done music and scenes of nature, opened a whole new portal to a serene future where I want to live.
Leah's program is beautiful and authentic. I was swept to a mood of greatness and all my troubles seemed melted away during the session.
Leah has poured all her love into making these gems to bring you joy, pleasure, and harmony. For that, I am grateful and very much looking forward to observing and learning together with her.”
I can tell you this program changes lives.
There’s a unique way of eating that immerses us in mindfulness, focus, awareness of thoughts and emotions as well as gratitude for the food we’ve been given.
When we eat using this unique method... we drop all other activities and just sit and collect ourselves... paying attention to body and breath... being present with ourselves without expectation or judgment as we eat.
Rapid consumption and sensory pleasure (although that increases the experience) are not the goals.
It’s about slowing down, paying attention to the food. Really savoring it. You’re grateful for where your food came from and who prepared it, noticing our emotions and sensations as we eat.
In Secrets of Savoring, I share the three-step method for achieving this blissful state.
Now when I normally teach these practical, easy fat loss methods, it’s part of a $3500.00 health retreat in places like Bali, Fiji and Thailand.
You should see the smiling faces of people. There’s a night and day difference between when people arrive and when they leave.
However, you won’t have to pay $3500.00 to learn my unique approach.
You won’t even have to pay $500 for my private mentoring sessions.
The great news is the regular price of “Mindful Body” is just $127.

In your efforts to lose weight, I don’t know what you’ve tried.
I don’t know how many grueling diets you’ve been on.
I don’t know how many exhausting exercise programs you’ve tried.
What I do know is Mindful Body is the missing link for anyone struggling to lose weight (and keep it off).
The reason is disarmingly simple.
When you’re dealing with the mind, your diet and exercise results are AMPLIFIED. And you definitely don’t need to deprive or starve yourself of the food you love.
All you have to do is set aside about 7 minutes a day for yourself to go through the process I’ll train and guide you in.
Then little by little, day by day, watch the fat melt away.
I think you’ll be amazed as I first was how it works.
If you’ve been frustrated by your lack of results from dieting or exercising, and nothing seems to work, I encourage you to try this method, as well.
It could make all the difference.
There’s something magical that happens when you combine this method with diet and exercise.
Mindful Body acts as a turbocharger, a powerful boost to any diet and exercise program.
This method, when done consistently every day, can increase the results of your current weight loss program exponentially... propelling you towards your goals sooner... and providing the proper conditions for you to maintain your desired weight and health for good.
Ultimately, this method will help you reach a state of more vibrant health and happiness, as you become aware of and releasing subconscious messages and persistent, self-sabotaging patterns that block you.
Of course, I’d like to get to my weight loss message out to everyone. Given the epidemic of obesity, I’m sure it would transform the world.
That’s stated, I’m a realist.
There are a couple of ‘gotta-haves’ when it comes to using this breakthrough method in your daily life:
#1: You’ve GOT to be willing to trust yourself and your body.
Given the proper mindset I’ll teach you, a slimmer, slender, sexier you is inevitable. That’s a given.
But what I’ve discovered is some people refuse to believe in themselves.
If they don’t believe in themselves, do you know what that means?
It means nothing will work for them. It doesn’t matter what it is.
#2: The second essential thing you need is a bit of patience.
When I say patience, I DON’T mean patience with themselves or with the program.
I mean having the patience to allow the program work in your life. Let it allow you to claim its multitude of benefits.
While it should come as no surprise this program will not make you lose 5 pounds a day, as I have said, “the fat will melt... a little bit every day.”
Just give yourself some time. Let it settle in and become a part of your daily life.
The next thing you know your clothes fit a little looser. Your health is rejuvenated. Your happiness and well being returns.
All you’ll need is just a few short minutes a day.
With my 60-day, three-pronged guarantee, how much will your life change in two months?
Try it and see. You’ve got nothing to lose. Your ideal body, the body you visualize in your mind’s eye is closer than you may realize.

Yours in health and happiness,
