The Two Words That Guarantee Success (or failure) When Losing Weight

Written by Mark Idzik

Did you know that being successful with losing weight starts with just two words?

Two words will either guarantee you'll lose weight, or guaranteerepparttar you WON'T lose weight.

You see, words are very powerful. Especiallyrepparttar 131387 words that we say to ourselves... our self-talk.

Whatever we say to ourselves goes directly to our subconscious and is accepted as complete truth.

Did you catch that?

Whatever you say to yourself or others is accepted as a complete truth to your subconscious mind.

How do you describe yourself?

Do you see yourself as healthy, slim and energetic?

Or do you see yourself as heavy and overweight?

Do you tell yourself (or complain to others) that "you can't" lose weight?

If you say to yourself....

"I am fat" ... your mind says OK, you're fat and gets to work inrepparttar 131388 background on taking actions that make (and keep) you fat.


"I am healthy and slim"... your mind says, OK, and gets to work inrepparttar 131389 background on taking actions that make (and keep) you healthy and slim.

[Note: You literally can't lose weight if you see yourself as overweight... your mind won't let you. This is one reason so many struggle with losing weight... and keeping it off. ]

Weight Loss: It's Not Always What You Eat, But What You Don't Eat

Written by Mark Idzik

On a little island half way in between Guam andrepparttar Philippines there is a rampant epidemic affectingrepparttar 131386 inhabitants. This tiny island of approximately 8,200 people is not afflicted with famine or a deadly disease as you might think when talking about an epidemic...repparttar 131387 islanders are dying at much earlier ages that at any other time in their history. They have alarmingly high rates of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity.


Well,repparttar 131388 people on this island used to make their living by farming, growing bananas and coconut and lots of fishing. They used to walk everywhere, eat fresh fruits and vegetables and had lots of daily activity.

Now, withrepparttar 131389 introduction of "western culture" andrepparttar 131390 destruction of their normal behavior,repparttar 131391 islanders now drive to their computer jobs in mostly cramped offices and eat a diet of highly processed "prepared" foods imported fromrepparttar 131392 United States, Australia and New Zealand.

As you can see, exportingrepparttar 131393 "American diet" of quick and easy processed food and lack of activity has taken a healthy and active island population, and turned it into a mini version of America, along withrepparttar 131394 associated rates of obesity and disease.

--It's What You Don't Eat

You see, when losing weight, we're not only talking about weight loss, we're also talking about better health. It's hard to lose weight without taking steps to increase your healthy habits... right?

One ofrepparttar 131395 most important and effective ways to lose weight and get healthier is to avoid two groups of foods.

Both of these foods have been directly linked to deteriorating health and specifically weight gain and obesity. The unhealthy ingredients in these foods have steadily (and secretly) been used in greater amounts overrepparttar 131396 last 20 years... and we haven't known it. More importantly, we haven't knownrepparttar 131397 hidden dangers of eating them.

The first group of foods to avoid are those that contain "Trans Fats".

Also know as TFA's or Trans Fatty Acids, they are found in partially hydrogenated oils... manufactured and unhealthy fats. They are a silent killer hidden in our food, and have been directly linked torepparttar 131398 skyrocketing rates of obesity in both adults and children worldwide.

The Center for Science inrepparttar 131399 Public Interest reports that banning trans fats from all foods would save at least 30,000 lives each year inrepparttar 131400 US alone. That's 82-274 needless deaths every day. The web site shows an alarmingly clear statistical increase in obesity overrepparttar 131401 last 20 years as trans fats have become a growing part of our American diet.

The government has admitted that manufactured trans fats have no safe level for human consumption! That's zero. There is no safe level of consumption at all, but it's still in a large percentage ofrepparttar 131402 products we eat every day.
