The True Key to Weight Loss

Do You Know the True Key to Weight Loss?

It’s a sad but true fact that most diets do not lead to success. Most dieters aren’t happy with the outcome of the diets they try (I emphasize try). When one diet fails, they then go on to another and another… before long they are in a vicious cycle. Lose a few pounds, gain back the pounds and in some cases they even gain more weight than they lost. I’m sure this all sounds familiar to you. You’ve probably heard the term yo-yo dieting. If the diets fails, there has to be a reason, don’t you think?

If the diets fails, there has to be a reason, don’t you think?

Why Do Most Diets Fail?

Think deeply about this question. Do diets fail because they lack the necessary information needed for the participants to achieve success, or do the fail because of something that the dieter does wrong? Please read that again, because it is instrumental in recognizing why diets fail. Most people that don’t lose the weight they wanted to lose while trying the latest diet, blame the diet. It’s convenient to blame an outside source for our failures, but is it “The Truth!”

The True Key to Weight Loss Is…

Everything starts with a vision, the screen you’re reading this article from started with someone’s vision. Every building, every vehicle, every new product or service starts with a vision. Your ability to make your visions materialize is more important than what you eat. You can lose weight eating everything you eat now, but the amount of exercise you do would have to increase or the overall consumption of what you eat would have to decrease, alternatively you could do both. Look at the below points and ask yourself this question. Are these points true?

  • People lose weight without ever going on a diet.
  • People lose weight without using a book, DVD or personal trainer.
  • Losing weight is easy for some people.
  • I can lose weight and keep it off (yes you)

The reason these statements are true, is because there are people who have done these exact things and that means you can do the same thing. The key in every case is mindset. You must believe that it can be done and then make the decision to get it done and not waiver until it gets done. You have to take responsibility for your health, it’s not the diets fault, it’s not the health club’s fault, or any other outside factors.

How to Develop the Key

So how do you develop this key? What do you need to do in order to create the proper mindset, in order to get and stay motivated, in order to make the decision once and for all, to lose weight? Glad you asked. Everyone is different, but you have to look within yourself and ask questions like:

  1. Why do I want to lose weight?
  2. What’s stopping me from losing weight right this very minute?
  3. How much weight do I want to lose?
  4. What am I willing to do to achieve the weight loss I desire?
  5. What are three things I could do today to start my personal journey to weight loss?

Whatever your goals are, write them down and put them where you can read them every day. At the end of every day list what you did that day to achieve your goal. You see ultimately, you must have a overwhelmingly strong desire to achieve your health and fitness related goals. You then must break down your large goals into smaller ones and develop a consistent pattern of small goal achievement.

You Will Become Unstoppable

When you create small easy to achieve goals and then achieve them consistently, you’re building your confidence and self-esteem. By the time you’ve achieved 3 and then 10, 20 or even 50 baby goals, you’ve simultaneously achieved larger goals. As you progress you will build a track record of achievement and you will no longer fail when it comes to losing weight, because you will have reprogrammed your mind for success. You will become unstoppable.

So the key is, “Your mindset…your ability to materialize that which you visualize!”

6 Vegetables You Should Be Eating

Vegetables You Should Be Eating

Sometimes we’ll stick to the same routine when we reach for a salad or snack because we know what tastes good—or at least we know what won’t go straight to our thighs. However, many women are not getting all the nutrients their bodies need to prevent cancers, maintain a healthy weight, and make us feel good about our bodies. Sometimes the veggies we opt out for are the ones we need the most.

BEETS—You may not be the biggest fan of beets but its plethora of health benefits may help you to decide otherwise. Beats are a wonderful cleanser for the body as it aids in the blood’s purification, acts as a tonic for the liver, and is a preventer of a number cancers. Not only are they packed with vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, B, & C, fiber, potassium, and iron, beets are also a high source of energy in that they are low in calories and high in sugar (a form of sugar that is released into our system gradually versus a candy-like sugar).  Beets are also beneficial for your mental health and libido. Beets are comprised of betaine, which is a substance used to treat depression. They are also made up of high amounts of boron, which is a direct producer of human sex hormones, so they act as a form of Viagra!

CAULIFLOWER—This vegetable is a great addition to any salad as it is low in calories and is an aid in weight loss diets. Its richness in folate is a wonderful treat for pregnant women, as well as its contents in niacin, riboflavin, and thiamine (other great B vitamins. Cauliflower is also a heart healthy vegetable as it protects our heart from many diseases, can help lower cholesterol levels in the body, and reduces the risk of various cancers including prostate, breast, colon, ovarian, and bladder. Its high level of antioxidants aid in the acceleration of aging and its omega-3 fatty acids acts as an anti-inflammatory. 

MUSHROOMS—Though this is technically a fungi and not a vegetable, it is still a highly recommended addition to any food intake. Mushrooms have absolutely no cholesterol or fats and have very little carbohydrates. The fiber and enzymes that make up the fungi help lower cholesterol and are recommended as a low energy food source for diabetics. Mushrooms are a great source of vitamins and minerals essential in building a strong immune system as well as are great for losing weight (due to its low fat and high fiber).  This fungi is also very effective in preventing breast and prostate cancer due to its level of Beta-Glucans and Linoleic Acid have anti-carcinogenic effects.

EGGPLANT—Not being one of the most appealing-looking vegetables on the planet, eggplant have such a great taste and health benefits. Its levels of fiber help with digestion and colon health. Due to its low level of calories, this too is a great addition to any weight-control diet. Eggplant acts as one big powerful antioxidant for the body while simultaneously helping to lower cholesterol levels 

BRUSSELS SPROUTS—In addition to being a preventer of a plethora of cancers, Brussels sprouts are also a huge supporter of cardiovascular health. They help prevent and reverse the damage made by blood vessels. Recent studies show that this vegetable helps to maintain and stabilize DNA within white blood cells by blocking activity of sulphotransferase enzymes. Its level of vitamin K regulates the body’s inflammatory responses along with its level of vitamin A, which boosts immunity, protects the eyes, and maintains healthy bones and teeth.

SWISS CHARD—This is more of an all-around healthy treat for your body. Swiss chard promotes hair health, since its rich in biotin, while simultaneously regulating your blood sugar.  Its levels of lutein maintain eye health while its level of iron provides the body with healthy blood circulation, preventing anemia. Its source of vitamin K and magnesium is crucial to brain and bone health—all while being a huge preventer in colon cancer.

Even though not all of these veggies seem tastefully appealing, there are so many great recipes to use in order to make them taste good while also keeping all of their amazing health benefits. Before you say no to the things our parents forced us to eat as children, give them one more try by throwing them in a stir-fry or adding a pinch of sal
