If you have been thinking about starting a diet, then you are going to want to stop what you’re doing, grab pen, paper and read this article right away…..
According to the newest data on obesity released by Statistics Canada; Adult Canadians are becoming more obese. Now I am not sure if that surprises you but it does not surprise me for two reasons.
Reason 1: Did you know that if you type the words ‘weight loss diet’ in Google about 1,090,000,000 results will show up?
Reason 2: Did you also know that people have been inventing diets for over 150 years? One of the first diets was created in 1863 when William Banting invented the first low-carb diet. Let’s think about that for a moment. We have access to over 150 years’ worth of research and science at our fingertips about diets but we still haven’t figured out weight loss?
Weight loss is obviously a very confusing industry, full of gimmick diets such as all protein, all juice, no carbs, no food, magic pills, and a countless amount of other diets. Once we stop these diets we gain the weight back and then some — which is very harmful to our health.
I think its time that we all give up dieting and just start living healthier lives! We don’t need to be perfect. All we have to do is make healthier decisions in our everyday life. It’s easy! We can start small by covering half of every plate with fresh organic green vegetables (including your breakfast plate), walk 30 minutes a day, drink the right amount of good clean water for your body. Make sure the products you use and the people you spend time with are toxic free, keep a positive mental attitude, etc.
If you want to have a real weight management breakthrough and maintain a healthy weight long-term, you need to create healthy habits.
Hopefully, you grabbed a pen and paper because when we write down our goals the odds of us reaching them increases. The odds increase again when we already talk and act as if what we want is ours already.
Write this down and fill in the blanks. Read it every day for the next 30 days:
- I love myself for who I am today because
- I have easily reached my healthy goal weight and I am maintaining it
- I have all the willpower and support I need to reach all my health goals
- I do not let anyone or any fear stand in the way of my goals
