Maybe you losing weight comes down torepparttar simple question, “Do you think you are worthy to?”

My name is Greg Ryan. For twenty years I have counseled thousands of people on weight loss. Athletes, obese individuals, movie stars, and kids. No matter whorepparttar 150589 person is, no matter where I am inrepparttar 150590 world, I believe much success in weight loss comes down to people believing in their hearts that they are worthy to feel good. If you think about, this state of mind is really sad.

After all these years of consulting health clubs I have determined one thing: our problem with obesity, diabetes and heart disease lies not inrepparttar 150591 numbers onrepparttar 150592 fitness and medical charts, but inrepparttar 150593 approach to them. Your weight is where it is at because of your beliefs behind your behaviors. Until you figure them out, you will be a rollercoaster ridingrepparttar 150594 scale up and down.

7 Ways to Reduce the High Calorie Cost of Restaurant Eating

Written by Kathryn Martyn, M.NLP

Here are seven tips for gettingrepparttar calories out of restaurant meals while still ordering your favorites.

1. Say NO to Super Sizing. The size you ordered is already too big. Stop super sizing and you'll save money. Better still, order one dinner and ask for an extra plate. Many restaurants will do this for a dollar or two, and it's well worth it. Then sharerepparttar 150488 meal with your friend and you splitrepparttar 150489 cost straight downrepparttar 150490 middle. Another option is to order fromrepparttar 150491 so called "appetizer" menu. Two people could order three entrees, one dessert and splitrepparttar 150492 whole thing and it's still a ton of food!

2. Skiprepparttar 150493 Bread and Rolls. Most family restaurants still serve a bread basket with your meal. Unless it's a fresh baked loaf or some really special bread, just skip it. You don't need to fill up on ordinary bread when you're paying good money for a meal. Just ask for it to be taken away if you can't resist, but frankly, you're an adult, you can resist, if you want to. You can simply choose not to put a roll on your plate. Try it, just once and see if you don't walk out of that restaurant feeling strangely powerful.

If you can't skiprepparttar 150494 rolls, at least skiprepparttar 150495 butter. That's right. Eat it plain. Whole grain bread is delicious all by itself.

3. Stop Ordering Drinks. Soft drinks are a huge cash cow for restaurants. For pennies they sell you a squirt of syrup and carbonated water and act like they're doing you a big favor by only charging you $1.29 for a giant 64 ounce soda. Start saving those dollars. Especially if you're ordering "to go" skiprepparttar 150496 drink. If you're eating it there, ask for water, or at least switch to diet drinks. Never drink "fat pop."
