Since losing weight is a big resolution on many peoples list, year after year… I’m going to spend some time giviing you some easy to apply tips that will help you be thinner and healthier this year.
If you truly want to be thinner, healthier, happier, and full of energy this year – you are going to have to change some habits.
Sorry, there is no way around this – no matter what the latest greatest new TV ad is trying to sell you.
But many times habits are formed by a wrong perspective. Here’s an example –
Many people will grab an “instant” dinner.
You cook the meat and drain it.
You add water and the magic ingredients.
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Lower heat, cover and simmer.
Come back, uncover, stir and let sit until it coagulates – ooops, I mean – thickens.
Now you might think that’s easy.
You might even think it tastes good (if the chemicals have killed off your tastebuds)
I’m surprised at how many people won’t even make a salad or a vegetable to go with these ‘meals’. They’re happy to eat a concoction of corn syrup, chemicals, sodium, and fats without a bit of nutrition. And then – those are the people complaining
Their joints hurt
They have high blood pressure
They have asthma
They have no motivation
And on, and on, and on…
Now to me – making those ‘meals’ is a pain in the butt.
It tastes bad.
It makes me feel bad.
In the same amount of time, I can put together a delicious fresh meal that will taste good, keep me young and healthy, and give me energy to live the other part of my life. You know – the hours after work when most people are too drained to do anything.
You can take 5 minutes to cut up some vegetables, or mix a chemical concoction. Same time, different choice, different outcome.
Just a different perspective.
I choose to eat foods that will keep me healthy, and I’ve found easy ways to do that.
Others choose to eat things that they perceive are easy to make, choosing to eat foods that most likely will give them heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Oh, I know – no one consciously thinks, “Oh, I think I’ll eat foods that will give me heart disease or cancer today.” But that’s the outcome.
If you could just make that one little change in your perspective – you’ll be halfway there. It’s really as simple as that.
Instead of making a resolution to lose weight, like you have every year – make an affirmation –
I choose to eat fresh foods that taste great and will keep me thinner, healthier, happier, and full of energy to live my life to the fullest.
Feel the difference?
After a couple of weeks – you really will feel the difference 😉
