”Be kind to your body and appreciate where it is now, as well as where it could be.”
By this point in time, you’ve probably already read hundreds of posts/articles/ads/etc. on how to lose weight. There’s information everywhere. The business world took off with this high-demand product, and now there are many expensive programs and books that tell you what to do to lose weight. The really confusing part: there’s SO MUCH conflicting information out there. Are you supposed to cut out carbs? Or be a high-carb vegan? Are you supposed to do steady-state cardio 60 minutes a day? Or should you be doing high intensity interval training (HIIT)?
Here’s my stance on it: STOP OVERTHINKING! Which has become so easy to do- the media’s had a field day bombarding us all with information. But thinking there is one way, one best way, to lose weight is simply not the case. I’ve been providing health education to patients for a couple years now, and I’ve seen patients lose weight and some even gain. From talking with them, I know what the “losers” did and where the maintainers/gainers went wrong. I’m going to break it down for you, because losing weight is actually pretty simple!
