Weight Loss: What you MUST Know Before You BeginWritten by Tim Trzcinski
STOP! Don’t even THINK about starting another weight loss program, diet, supplement, shake, energy bar, or other method until you’ve completed one key step to ensuring your success at it. This isn't about seeing your doctor or researching it on internet – you’ve probably already done these things many times before (and if not – you should). This is about preparing you – your mind – for weight loss journey you are about to embark on. And a journey it will be!
How many times have you sat there on a Sunday afternoon stuffing yourself with an afternoon meal and proclaiming to your friends and family that “tomorrow I’m starting my diet,” only to have Monday roll around and you’re right back to your old habits? How many New Year’s resolutions and post-Holiday season promises have you made to start that next diet, but instead watched yourself quickly fade back to old routine within a week or less? You had right intentions, right products, right books, right research, right everything. Or so you thought. Maybe you even lost a pound or two, only to regain them a week later as your new weight loss program came to an abrupt halt. You asked yourself, “why do these things never work for me?” and, “why can’t I lose weight like those people in ads do?”
The answer is simple: you did not mentally prepare yourself to be a “successful loser!” You said you had right intentions, but what did you do to turn those intentions into a winning plan of action? You said you had enough will power to see it through, but will power only goes so far when it comes to weight loss. Will power is like a brief burst of energy – it excites you, motivates you, and gives you a taste of victory – but then suddenly dies out as quickly as it was mustered. Thus, it takes more than will power: it takes a vision of what you wish to achieve. You must envision what your end goal is – your objective – clearly in your mind. You must determine what your “why” is – your reason for losing weight – before you will truly make a personal commitment to it. And then you must persist at it – with no exceptions – until you achieve your goal and arrive at place you envisioned.
Weight Gain, Cravings, & GeneticsWritten by LaZelle Blue Bradley
Jay Leno expressed on Tonight Show that as he interviewed people he realized that most of them had weight loss as their New Year’s resolution. Weight is indeed a major concern in United States. Overweight robs us of energy and encourages diseases.
Obesity is a sign that body is out of balance. Science knows how body gets proper nutrition. The answer is “Whole, live ,foods with living enzymes”. Weight loss pills and those who promise you lasting weight control, eat all you want, etc ,if you only take their pill, do not feed your body. Weight loss pills and fad diets may seem to work at first, but get off them and guess what? They do not correct imbalance. The weight can start to creep up again and only choice we have is to continue using them, although they don’t feed body and long term effects may not be known.
Our bodies crave junk foods, rich cheese sauces, fast food hamburgers(the biggest ones), breads, pastas and sugary desserts that they have become accustomed to. We are addicted. Sugars and flours make us sick, fat, and crazy. Many of regular grocery stores contain genetically engineered foods-no living enzymes.
Where do cravings come from? The basic underlying reason for craving is malnutrition. The body is simply not getting fed. This is confusing, especially to people who live in a country that has more food than any other. The myriad choices of foods in our markets would be mind-boggling for anyone who has lived in Iraq, for instance or in many other less well-supplied countries.
Why in a country so seemingly rich in foods ,are we starving? Why are we 17th on world longevity list? Why are we getting sicker and sicker?
Consider fact that even if you are eating vegetables and fruits and following recommended dietary requirements what you are eating is not feeding your body what it needs. Three areas of information may shed some light.
First, a study of current USDA nutrient tables for various vegetables and fruits coming off our fields today reveals a significant drop in nutrient contents since 1975 ,some of which are enormous. Senate Document #264,first issued in 1930’s and again in 1990’s States: The impoverished soil of American no longer provides plant foods with mineral elements essential to human nourishment and health…Laboratory tests prove that fruits, vegetables ,the grains, eggs and even milk and meat of today are not what they were a few generations ago…No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with minerals he requires for perfect health because his stomach is not big enough to hold them.. Physical ,mental and moral fitness depend largely upon an ample supply and a proper proportion of minerals in our foods.
