To truly get results and in order for you to keep on getting results, you need to take a holistic approach.
Make a lifestyle change.
This has been the hoopla roaming around the weight loss world for some time now.
Is this statement true?
Can you only obtain and continue to see results with a holistic approach or is this just another one of these hypes?
The truth of the matter is that there is no shortage of diets or information for that matter on the best possible way to lose weight.
Yet, we are still going in the wrong direction…
We are still getting fatter as a nation.
I have heard a lot of people pull out the saying,
‘Diets Don’t Fail People, People Fail Diets.’
I personally have mix feelings about this.
It’s true that if you manage to stick to most diets they will work.
On the other hand, our life is our life (good observation Tzviki).
What I mean to say is that we don’t live in Barbie Land.
We live in a world were we have an abundance of stressors not to mention we are constantly busy.
In fact in our society we all aim to be busy… some may even look up to the people that are busy.
For your entertainment, notice how your friends answer you when you ask them how they are.
I bet most will answer busy, have no time, stressed or something along those lines.
Without us knowing it, we admit that we have a stressful life.
With a life like this the last thing we want is to add more stress and worries.
When the doc mentions something about your weight how are you supposed to take on more worries?
You don’t have the head to work out what you can and cannot eat!
You don’t have time to exercise!
Especially now when your stressing out about:
- Paying bills
- Finding a job that will make you feel happy and fulfilled
- Kids having trouble in school
- Your rocky or nonexistent relationships (from all the stress)
On top of all that you struggle to fit into the clothes that used to make you feel great about yourself!
The irony in it all is that when you are in good shape, healthy and in control of the way you eat this amazing felling will carry over into the rest of your life.
It’s a catch 22.
When taking care of your health you feel great and the stress minimizes but you hit a wall when trying to start you program because of all the stressors.
If only you can get the ball rolling.
In the instances where you do get the ball rolling you end up relapsing back to your old ways after a month or two.
This isn’t your fault.
A standard weight loss program, where you work on just having a calorie deficit, doesn’t provide you with the tools and strategies you so desperately need to get you where you want to be.
All diets focus on is getting fewer calories into your body.
This is where the whole new dynamic of a change in lifestyle comes into play.
The problem I find is that when people hear they need to work on their lifestyle they think of doing a 180-degree turn around of their life essentially scaring most away.
Although in some cases this may be true and necessary, attempting a 180-degree turnaround instantly will most likely result with you ending up right back where you started.
The right way to do it is to focus on one point in your life and work on changing that.
Once it becomes part of your routine – or dare I say habit, you can then work on the next point and slowly but surly you will change your lifestyle.
The little trick here is finding your limiting factor.
A limiting factor is the one thing that will give you the best bang for your buck. The crucial thing is to focus on the right limiting factor at the time.
The last thing you want to do is spend energy and time on things that aren’t really going to work for you.
