Whether easy or not, it can be challenging to keep your weight loss from creeping back! It is an issue for all who have experienced the extra pounds of fat stores clinging to their body. I am not an exception either.
It is important to know why the extra pounds accumulated on our bodies to begin with. It could be an injury, unresolved issues, medication side effects, or health issues. These are the biggest contributing factors.
So, how do we keep the weight off?
We change how we view ourselves, our past, our medical issues, and the medication we take. We change our attitude about food, and our relationship with it. We think about and make conscious choices about the food, drink, and medications put into our bodies. In short, we become aware of our lives.
Food intake is the biggest thing we have control over. With all the current research on food, pesticides, and nutrition, we have the tools to make healthy food choices. With a change in our relationship with food, it becomes easier to choose a healthy snack or meal. Our bodies start to crave fresh, raw foods, instead of processed food products.
Does this mean that some foods are no-nos?
That is a choice that each individual makes. I choose organic, because I’m allergic to pesticides. I do this to feel better, and live a healthier life. It is for myself, and benefits my family. Each person has the power to make these choices to fit their individual lifestyle.
Challenge to Those Who Accept. . .Make a list of the foods currently included in your diet. Look at the ingredients that make each of these foods. Decide if you want to put these ingredients into your body. . .
