Weight Loss: Discover a Holistic Weight-loss Program that worksWritten by Carmellita M. Brown
How many weight-loss programs have you tried over years? How many of these weight-loss programs have taken a holistic approach? Holistic Weight loss is only way we can insure that we will lose weight and keep it off. A holistic weight-loss program focuses on “whole” person. If a weight-loss program does not focus on restoring your health, fitness, power, and resolution, it is a temporary fix to what can become or is a lifelong problem. Holistic weight-loss is essential. Weight-loss programs that do not consider “whole” person are destructive for several reasons: Many people who are overweight, obese, or morbidly obese have underlining issues related to health of “whole” person. These underlining issues may include stress, low self-esteem, a poor self-concept, food addictions, emotional eating…all that must be addressed during weight-loss process. Many people who are overweight, obese, or morbidly obese develop a distorted body image even after they have lost weight. Many people view a “diet” as a temporary and quick way to lose weight and do not understand importance of nutrition. People who join many “diet” programs with pre-packaged foods or special supplements to suppress appetite are suffering from malnutrition. Because such programs cause malnutrition, many people can not “keep up” “diet” for rest of their lives and eventually gain all weight back and more. When a person becomes overweight, they feel a loss of power, resolution, and control, it is important to restore these elements to rebuild a sense of “self” and empowerment. Usually, when a person is on a “diet” or weight-loss program, s/he is planning in their minds all things they will “eat” after they lose weight. This is why a holistic weight-loss program is so important. If one does not understand how nutrition works, s/he will never truly commit to a weight-loss program. We have dealt with some “big fat lies” related to weight loss and now it is time to address truth. The truth is: Truth: You can’t eat whatever you want not even in moderation and lose weight.
