The warnings about the health risks involved in obesity are everywhere. From diabetes to depression to heart disease to cancer, the list is long and bleak. The question is not whether it is important to maintain a healthy weight, but rather what is the BEST WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT and how do we lose weight in a healthy, sustainable way?
The first thing to do is eliminate fad diets. As dangerous as obesity is, fad diets are not a safe alternative. Fad dieting sells a promise of dropping pounds quickly, but your body pays the price. The changes made during a fad diet are not sustainable lifestyle choices. When the diet is over, all the pounds that were lost usually pile back on quickly. These diets can also leave us fatigued and dehydrated as we starve our bodies in an attempt to rid ourselves of the extra weight.
When you set out to live a healthier life, it’s important to ensure that the changes you make are sustainable. Here are a few tips for successful, healthy weight loss.
- Visualize your goals.
Always see yourself as the YOU you want to be. Avoid focusing on the number of pounds you wish to lose and keep the image of the future you in the forefront of your mind at all times. If you have a lot of weight to lose, don’t give up! Every pound is a step toward a healthier life. Be patient with yourself and let your body work at a rate that gives you the best chance of keeping the weight off in the long run.
- You are what you eat.
When examining your diet, there is only one rule: Eat Real Food. If it’s processed or contains chemicals, rest assured that it isn’t good for you. Focus on filling your meals and snacks with fresh fruits, veggies, lean meats, and whole grains. The less you eat frozen, pre-packaged meals the better. If you need a snack (with our program you’ll need them very infrequently), keep nuts, carrots and natural foods on hand so that you have something available, and stay hydrated! Your body needs water to function properly and shed excess weight. Think ahead, plan ahead!
- Take care of your body.
Exercise doesn’t have to be intimidating, it can be fun! Think of a child at play. Whether you get a gym membership, start running with a friend, or take that workout class you’ve always wanted to try. Find something that works for you. Find something fun! If you try something and don’t like it, on to the next! There are hundreds of ways to exercise and keep moving. Make time to exercise daily. Write it on your calendar and think of it as a reward or as your recess from your daily life.
- Take care of your mind.
A huge part of having a healthy body is having a healthy mind. Often we eat because we are stressed or bored. If you find yourself eating for reasons other than hunger, make a mental note. Notice your state of mind and what emotions you’re feeling. If you’re bored, try a new hobby. Find something that engages your mind and brings out the best in you. Surround yourself with people who are positive influences and focus on building a life you enjoy and can be proud of. This is exceptionially easier to do with HYPNOSIS FOR WEIGHT LOSS. With hypnosis you can learn how to deal with emotions in a healthy way so you can focus on your goals.
