Nutritional Healthy Weight Loss Habits

How to lost weight by learning to focus on treating his body right and taking the time to make healthy changes.

Mind over matter is a concept that has been around for some time. When I first began my weight loss attempts I wanted to lose the weight quickly and was willing to do anything to achieve my goals. Losing the weight and keeping it off took focus, effort, and time. But it wasn’t until I turned those efforts toward making healthy changes that I was successful.

Wanting to achieve significant results from as little effort as possible, I started where many people do—with dieting. I bounced from diet to diet, strictly adhering to the requirements of each, but not seeing the results I was promised. As time went on and my frustration mounted, desperate and dangerous methods became more appealing.

I started with “health supplements”—replacing meals with shakes and power or snack bars. Those left me hungry and I would binge eat more food in a day than I was skipping in a week of supplements.

It was a short leap from “health supplements” to outright diet pills. Diet pills didn’t leave me hungry; they didn’t do anything as far as I could tell,  except pump regular doses of mostly unregulated and probably toxic levels of chemicals into my body.

Because I was focused on losing weight the easy way I went about it ways that did more harm than good to my body. Eventually I turned to healthy weight loss methods like exercise and eating well. When I did that I began to lose weight and I have kept off for years. While it didn’t happen overnight, it was good for my body and made me feel better about myself.

Losing weight and keeping it off is not a process that should be attempted by shortcuts. Shortcuts are exactly what they sound like, they are short and cut: short-lived, and they cut into time you could be using to live healthily; they cut corners that risk your health;  and they cut back or out pieces of your life you should be enjoying. By focusing on eating properly, exercising, and remembering that you have control over your body you, can lose weight without resorting to methods that damage and endanger your health.
