When Losing Weight….Thou Shalt Always!
LOSING WEIGHT COMMANDMENTS
Here are some important commandments when it comes to losing weight and looking great:
Remind yourself that this is not a short-term fix! You are modifying your behavior, and making personal changes for the long-term. You already know that in order to lose weight effectively, there is going to be a calorie deficit. So instead of focusing solely on this, (which in and of itself is going to promote anxiety) think bigger, and visualize what amazing changes both internally and externally can, and will happen with the power of determination.
LOSING WEIGHT #2) Never let Boredom set in!
When you limit yourself to specific food choices, instead of broadening your horizons with new colors of various fruits and vegetables you are more likely to binge later on!
LOSING WEIGHT #3) Get ORGANIZED people!
Write it down, type it, or email it! It doesn’t matter what you do, or how you do it, you need to create structure in your life! When you have control over your daily tasks and behaviors you will have better control over your eating patterns.
LOSING WEIGHT #4) Think “Eat for Fuel”, Not for Flavor!
Keeping this concept in mind will allow you to gain control over your meals. When you look at food as nourishment for your body that is creating a powerhouse of energy and strength, you will be less inclined to reach for foods solely for the taste.
LOSING WEIGHT #5) Sloooow it Down!
Eating slower is an extremely simple way to decrease total calories in any given meal. However, this goes hand in hand with monitoring how many bites you take. Reason being is that you may struggle with slow eating if you don’t have a clear way to track it. So your best option is to not only slow your eating, but also at the same time monitor how many bites you take per meal. If this all seems like too much work, at the very least, try and focus on how many bites you are taking in a minute and let yourself be the judge.
LOSING WEIGHT #6) Drink More H20!
A recent study published in the “Journal of the American Dietetic Association,” showed “people who drink water before meals eat an average of 75 fewer calories at that meal.” When you think of 75 fewer calories, chances are your not that impressed. However, totaling this up over the long term can make a tremendous impact on your weight over a 6 month period! Not only that, but the study also showed that an individual who is dehydrated by just 1%, will see a significant halt in the functioning of their metabolism, which is a big issue in your weight loss success.
LOSING WEIGHT #7) Supplement with only High Quality Vitamins and Minerals!
Unfortunately while losing weight your body sometimes goes into a state of shock. The reason behind this is it simply doesn’t want to let any of its hard earned reserves go for fear of famine. Also, accumulated toxins in fat tissue start to seep their way out into the blood stream once fat metabolism begins. This usually leaves people feeling, tired, weak, irritable, and ill. Obviously not the best grounds for continued success. This is why supplementing with only QUALITY and BIOAVAILABLE vitamins and minerals like those seen in BodHD’s whole food, Multi DAILY, will ultimately ensure optimum nutrition for the prevention of those un pleasant symptoms, and assist in overall accelerated body detoxification. DAILY is like 4 Products in 1 with Vitamins, Chelated Minerals, Antioxidants and more than 17 Super Foods.
LOSING WEIGHT #8) Love thy Digestive System!
The center of not only how you look, feel, and behave begins in your digestive tract, which most people don’t even realize. WHY? The answer is simply “nutrient absorption.” When you are not digesting your foods appropriately, you are not ensuring proper absorption. This in turn leads to malnutrition and, in some cases, everything from weight gain, chronic inflammation, and disease, to general food allergy or intolerance. Not only that, but various chemicals like serotonin production, which is manufactured in the brain, is found in the digestive tract and blood platelets—amazingly 90% of our serotonin supply is in the digestive system. Having a fully nourished body right down to the cells, requires a healthy digestive tract with plenty of enzymes, bile, acids, and probiotics (to name a few) to perform the job. By supplementing with ONLY plant-based digestive enzymes and probiotics, such as those seen in BodHD’s BLD, you are optimizing nutrient absorbability and confirming that the healthy foods you eat are giving you the healthy nutrients you want to lose weight, reduce fat storage, and maintain total cellular nutrition.
LOSING WEIGHT #9) Exercise Everyday!
You had to have known that this one was coming! Exercise is an essential key for losing weight. The more active you are, the faster your body can flush out those debilitating toxins, and the quicker you will see results, along with defined triceps, defined stomach, and lifted bum.
LOSING WEIGHT #10) REALLY Enjoy your Meals!
Celebrate your food choices, and take the time to enjoy it. Losing weight is all about self discovery, and behavior modification. When you really take the time to make a good, healthy meal, take that time and love every minute of it. Applaud yourself for thinking outside the “processed/packaged” box. You deserve it and your body will thank you.
