Lose Weight – Gain Well Being
world is facing an epidemic of overweight people. Many children are overweight even those of parents who are not at all and never have been overweight. Do you ever wonder why? Why is it that twenty-five years ago a lot less children where fat while growing up and even though there were overweight adults there were many less compared to now. What has changed in our lifestyles for this fat epidemic to start?
Our food sources have become a lot less nutritious, we are eating many more processed foods, we are drinking and eating out of plastic and we spend more time in cars, behind computers and televisions which means less physical exercise. Our foods are contaminated with hormones leached out of the plastic packaging including the water we drink out of plastic bottles. For one thing these hormones cause children’s body development to go awry. Obesity is overshadowing many people’s lives but fortunately it need not as there is a simple solution to loosing excess weight.
You too can lose weight and gain well being. How? First by deciding you are ready to embark on a change of diet. Do you really want to lose weight? Are you committed? It is important to establish how eager you are to regain a beautiful healthy body. Set a goal that is feasible, it is good for it to be challenging but not overwhelming.
The most important thing to do in order to lose weight fast and keep it off is changing your diet.
Throw out the processed foods choose natural foods. Remove white flour, processed sugar, salt and fats plus stop eating dairy for a good while. Feast on vegetables and fruit, add natural raw nuts and seeds, incorporate Superfoods. You may like to visit the Superfood Super Store or the Sunfood Store to get some ideas.
Exercise your body, especially through strength training as it builds your muscles and is very effective at removing excess weight. Also include walking, running and cycling. Start gently and get more energetic as you gain in fitness. Breath deeply as this helps to oxygenate your body which in turn helps your body to recover from the stress of carrying too much weight.
Reduce stress, take time to relax by meditating or walking in nature. Make a vision board to gaze at or better yet make a mind movie and watch it daily. Mind movies are a relaxing and fun way in which to support yourself in both committing to your exercising routine and in getting your mind into weight loss mode. If you are new to meditating you may like to read the How To Meditate article here on www.happylivechoices.com.

Get support either by joining a local support group or by following a weight loss program. There are many weight loss programs on offer but not all of them will actually work for you. The Diet Solution Program is a good one to explore or if you are in a hurry you may like to go for the Fat Burning Furnace program. Which ever way you choose to do it always support yourself by speaking about your weight loss in an affirmative and current manner. “I am losing weight”, “I am already on my way to regaining a lean body”, do not speak about wanting to or trying to, you are losing weight right now.
The best aspect of losing weight is that not only does your health improve but your overall well being and happiness does too. So lose weight and gain well being, start today!
