How To Lose Weight and Stay Thin By Kathy Guidry
Diet is one of most controversial subjects around. Bring it up at a party and I can guarantee you’ll have everyone’s interest whether they’re talking or not. No matter how much we ignore this fact, food affects us. This world operates on a sowing and reaping system, if you plant watermelon, you harvest watermelon. If you feed watermelon right nutrients they will grow healthy, sweet, and juicy. The same is with our bodies. If we put in high quality substance, we will reap high quality results. I think we all know this on one level or another. The hard part is choosing right substance to put in our bodies. Somehow we crossed over in our eating from sustaining life to pleasure eating. And this pleasure eating has gotten so out of control through advertising that people have lost touch with why we eat in first place. And in this distortion, through huge money making industries that advertise food with beautiful models, we’ve received mixed messages that say we’re to eat to entertain and enjoy ourselves but maintain a beautiful figure and healthy skin. This is all combined with a fast passed society that doesn’t have time to even think about what to eat next has brought people to state of obesity, anorexia, bulimia, and just pure obsession over what we eat and how we look. My hope is to help people become free of deception that pleasurable foods hold. There is nothing wrong with enjoying food, especially when it has good benefits. The problem is it is far too abused and people are dying because of it. Heart disease and obesity are at an all time high. There is much more to life than food. My goal is to bring one to a place of awareness on how to eat healthy and stay there. People can debate all day what best things to eat are, or why they chose not to eat healthy because their Grandma didn’t and she lived to one hundred. The bottom line is, are you willing to make a decision that will enhance quality of your life and those around you who you affect, by changing way you eat? Are you willing to change? If you change your diet, I guarantee you your life will change. You will have more energy, think more clearly, have more confidence, self-esteem, more joy, need to sleep less, have less doctor visits, a better sex life, more creative energy, more sense of purpose, and live longer. Believe it or not, I think sub-consciously people know this. People become comfortable in what they know, even though they may be dis-satisfied, frustrated, and a lot of time full of self-hatred. People stay miserable because they do not know how to be different. Food can be like alcohol. It has a numbing effect. It can cover over things we’d rather not look at. One can drown themselves (so to speak) in a bowl of ice cream just as well as one sitting at bar drowning themselves in their beer. The question is, are you ready for a change? It takes courage to change. It’s easier to do what we know and feel in control. It’s harder to be in a place of unfamiliarity. (Like going to a party where you don’t know anyone vs. going somewhere you know everyone). There is a period of time where we are uncomfortable. But this does pass. The secret is in sticking to it long enough to pass through stage of being uncomfortable until you are somewhat familiar with new diet. For generations we have been taught to eat far from what our bodies thrive best on. So most of us are convinced this is way to eat. But if you just look around you in any store or restaurant, you can see effects of our diet. We truly are what we eat! When one starts to eat healthy, high quality food, you can see effects in one’s eyes, they become clear and white, their skin becomes smooth and has a glow, their face thins and takes on life, and they have much more enthusiasm and energy. The Willing To Change Diet is a diet that is for life. A diet that will brings one’s body to their perfect weight and health. It is not hard, just different than American diet in some ways. And it takes a willingness to change. BEING WILLING In order to get back to eating in a way that does not dominate our lives, we have to relearn how to eat. In some instances, taste buds have to readjust to a more wholesome way of eating. We’ve basically spoiled them with too much sugar, salt, fat and fiber-less food. Our society runs at such a fast pace, that people are accustomed to getting our food fast, and even eating it fast. To retrain our bodies it is going to take some discipline, desire, and practice. If you are willing to be willing to change, you have started on your journey towards freedom from food and weight obsession. There is a way to know how to shop, prepare, and make healthy meals that taste good. Exercise does not have to be difficult or painful. There are exercises that are more effective and guaranteed to bring results. The secret is simplifying all material that we have been bombarded with. After eating this healthy way for a while, highly processed food will not be so appealing. When you experience energy levels and over all good feeling of eating this way, you will always come back to it.
