Is weight loss hard for you?
Do you feel frustrated by how much effort it seems to take to live a healthy life?
Losing weight doesn’t have to mean the end of your love affair with food.
In fact, with just a few mental adjustments and a fresh perspective, you can create a better and more fulfilling relationship with food that allows you to lose weight with less effort.
But there’s a problem…
I ran into some friends that I hadn’t seen for years, and one of them asked me how I stay so thin.
The answer that popped out of my mouth was, “I eat a lot of vegetables and very little sugar.”
How to Tell if a Snack is Healthy…
You’re at a meeting, and you come face-to-face with a basket full of snacks.
Which snack do you pick if you want to stay healthy and not wreck your diet?
It’s downright confusing.
You find yourself staring at the spread of delicious choices like a deer in the headlights.
- This one has a fancy name – Biscotti – that sounds healthy.
- Oh, there’s some dark chocolate, that’s good for you, right?
- An oatmeal crème pie! I love those! Does the oatmeal make it an okay choice?
Let’s face it, choosing snacks to eat for healthy weight loss can be a muddled mess.
It’s not your imagination.
You eat the same foods and move the same way you always have, yet your waistline has disappeared.
If you’re a woman around the age of 50, and you suspect that your body has fallen victim to the hormonal shifts of menopause, then you’re right.
The problem is that your 50ish-year-old body wants more fat than it did when it was 30 because fat cells make the estrogen it’s starving for.
Menopause and belly fat might be two things that go together, but this doesn’t have to be your fate.
Whether you are looking to lose those last five pounds or you’re starting a long-term weight loss program, eating clean is the way to go.
There is no downside when it comes to eating clean to lose weight, yet there are many perks, like…
- Flawless skin
- Strong bones
- All-day energy
- Healthy heart
- All-over weight loss (even stubborn belly fat and thigh fat melts away with clean eating)
But, there is a lot of confusion about what clean eating means, especially when it comes to weight loss.
What do I snack on?
How do I eat clean at a restaurant?
What makes a clean food “clean”?
By the end of this article, you’ll know exactly what to eat, how to identify clean foods, and how to pull it all together to create the slim and healthy body that feels good to live in.
Losing weight is not your full-time profession, but it is an investment in your future.
You need a strategy that pays off on the scale that doesn’t waste your time and energy.
Fasting at night is a weight loss strategy that pays a high dividend for minimal effort.
Fasting is already something you do on a nightly basis; you call it sleeping.
By extending your natural nightly fast a few hours before bed and a couple of hours in the morning, you create a time-restricted eating pattern that encourages your body to burn fat without the need for strict dieting during the day.
Others have done it.
So what’s the trick?
How do you get motivated to lose weight, especially when you have a lot of weight to lose?
Lose two pounds a week and it will take you a half a year to lose 50 pounds and a full year to lose 100.
Can you stay motivated for that long?
What if your health depends on it?
Will that give you the drive to keep eating salad when everyone else is eating french fries?
If you are stuck in the “obese” category and want to break free, you have to find the mental strength to string many months of diet and exercise together.
