Why is it that so many of us fail at dieting and losing weight? Most of us do everything that people say to do but we just can’t lose the weight. Or we do lose the weight for a short time then gain it all back plus some. Are we to stay fat all our lives? The answer is, NO!
First, we need to stop using the word “Diet” in the sense of losing weight. Once our brain hears the word “Diet”, our brains automatically think deprivation. No more junk food, candy, desserts, we are going to become rabbits. We need to change our thinking and think of it as a “Life style change”. We can still have some of our favorite foods just in moderation.
Second, start eating healthy and watch the calories. Eat the low calorie versions instead of the fatty ones. When I first wanted to lose weight after my first born, I asked my doctor what I should do. He replied, “Eat meats, fruits and vegetables.” Notice that he left out the bread and pasta group. That is because our fruits and vegetables have the carbohydrates in them that we need. Not to say that we couldn’t have a little bit of bread or pasta once in a while.
Third, be kind to yourself. We all have our bad days when we go off of our “diet”. To avoid these days, plan a cheat day or two. That way if you are craving something, by all means eat it, just in moderation.
Fourth, drink plenty of water. Soda, coffee and alcohol (any caffeinated drinks) dehydrate you. For example, if you consume 1 drop of soda you would need to consume 2 drops of water to stay hydrated. You should consume half of your weight in ounces of water. If you weight 200 pounds then drink 100 ounces of plain water.
Fifth, exercise. That does not mean you need to go to the gym and spend hours, just get off the couch (or comfy chair) and start moving around. Go for a walk around the block or do floor exercises while watching TV. The objective is to move!
And Sixth is to cleanse your body of toxins. This step is actually the first step you should do. Many diets today tell you to do this, why? Because our digestive tract can be full of unwanted plaque, worms and digestive parasites which block our natural absorption of foods, so fat accumulates in our tissues making us “fat”. Once you cleanse your digestive tract you will lose weight and your bowels will be running normal.
