Successful weight loss and maintenance comes from lifestyle changes. One of the easiest changes is to know where your food comes from. The simple act of talking the farmer who grew the produce you purchase changes how you look at food. It is the act of becoming involved in the process of feeding yourself nutritious, nutrient rich foods.
It is hard to step away from fast food, the morning mocha or latte, and quick, sugar rich snacks. Our lives dictate that we run fast between appointments, find time for our families, and work long-hours to pay for our “bills”. A permanent lifestyle change happens with small, manageable changes that we choose to make consistently.
So, start small. It could be a choice to bring lunch to work 1 or 2 days, instead of eating out all 5 days. Little changes like this increase nutritional intake for your body. You may find that the food from home tastes better than the fast food.
Another possibility is to stop using processed food products. Weight loss is easier without all the extra added ingredients in processed foods, like monosodium glutamate, sodium, sugar, and other chemicals.
These little changes add up over time, and become new healthier habits. These are lifestyle changes for a healthier life.
Challenge for Those Who Choose to Accept. . .Look at your lifestyle, and pick one small “thing” you want to change. Then, take the steps to change it.
