It's the dawn of a New Year and with that comes all sorts of promises to eat better and get healthy. Whatever that may mean. For many people it means losing weight and dieting. For others it means preying on those trying to lose weight by pushing the latest cleanse, detox, wrap, or container system. It works, they say. Although results are only temporary and certainly are not typical. Look! Check out these before and after shots. The editing team did a great job with photoshop on those.
These people are taking advantage of the desperation and desire for these people to lose weight. They may say they are interested in you getting healthy. But, are they really or is it just about money?
There is no one size fits all cookie cutter program to follow. What works for one may not work for another. Losing weight and keeping it off in the long term is not about a short term diet, detox or cleanse. It certainly isn't about wrapping yourself up in plastic wrap. Losing weight and keeping it off has more to do with your lifestyle and your everyday eating habits. Not how you eat for 10 days or a 30 day challenge. Do you honestly think that a short term "cleanse" is going to make up for 11 months of torturing your body with a bad diet?
The thing to do is to incorporate changes to your daily routine. Eat better, Move better, Hydrate better and Sleep better. Changing your diet for the long haul will help you to reach those goals. Unless of course the idea of packing all your meals into little multi colored containers for the rest of your life appeals to you. Be honest with yourself and keep a food/exercise journal. That way you can track your progress and have a map to look at if you hit any bumps in the road. Get some blood work done. Take a look at your thyroid, Vit D, inflammation and blood sugar among others. These things can all hinder your ability to lose weight and keep it off.
Take action, you know what you need to do. If you have questions, ask a professional. You goal to lose weight and get healthy doesn't necessarily coincide with your neighbor's goal of leveling up and getting that company car. Please don't mistake talking points from an ad slick for a degree with real knowledge. Be careful of the wolf in sheep's clothing giving out health advice.
