Weight loss and management is one of the most frequently discussed topics in health. There are many approaches, of which suit some better than others. Remember, in health, whether it is for weight loss, attaining good health and eating habits, treating a specific condition or otherwise, that diet and the nutrition in your food is everything. Without a conscious approach to what goes into your body, you won’t get the result in the short or the long term. So with that in mind, here are just a few of my ideas when assisting those looking for weight lossÔÇª
When you hear ÔÇÿmind over matter’ know that there is a lot of truth to it and that the mind is a powerful thing. Reset a few switches in your mind when approaching change particularly when it comes to weight loss. Forget the negative voices that say you can’t do this or that, focus on the positive and the things you CAN DO.
• I can enjoy a treat every now and then, but I will make a good choice in the type of treat it is. Rather than ÔÇÿI can’t have any treats’.
• I can do this! One that’s particularly helpful every morning as you wake, because no matter what lies ahead of you in your day, really, you got this.
Clear out the processed food, sugary biscuits, drinks full of refined sugars, and all those delightful sauces and condiments in the pantry and fridge, which do little for your health and focus on foods to nourish. This is a key step in changing your health and this step alone often sees people shift weight immediately. Why? There’s zero temptation to reach for the junk. Instead you have a pantry full of clean, nourishing whole foods to work with and make the foundations for your journey in health.
MORE OR LESS
One of the greatest misconceptions in weight loss is that you need to consume less of everything, when the fact is for a lot of people they need to consume more of the right kind of food to energise, nourish and maintain their weight in a healthy range. Some of the common hiccups for weight loss, I see in practice are skipping meals, particularly breakfast; using coffee or tea to fill hunger pangs; eat / drink diet options when a lot of the time these things wreak havoc on your body and actually cause you to put on weight! So, moving forward, always keep in mind that food is your friend.
To give you an example, let’s look at skipping meals for weight loss. Truth be told, this doesn’t work, short or long term for managing your weight. When you skip meals your blood glucose levels and resulting energy drops, and your body goes into starvation mode, therefore storing more fat ready for some kind of famine. Now, I understand completely that some don’t feel hungry first thing in the morning or maybe are on the run so sitting to eat isn’t feasible. So what’s the solution? Introduce easy options like smoothies! And here enters our favourite team mates in this game – the Bioglan Superfoods Wholefoods Smoothie range.
