Healthy Weight Loss: One Bite at a Time

So you want to be Snow White? You want to look in the mirror and see the ‘fairest one in all the land’ or the ‘slimmest one’? Are you leaping to the newest fad or fantasy? Have you found yourself even further away from your goals? You want to reclaim your own body, don’t you?

It seems anything is possible in this century. Life is faster, solutions are better, people are stronger. Magic solves all of your problems and cures your ills.

  • Are you unhappy with your face? Fix it. Get plastic surgery, like they do on TV.
  • Is life to hard and complicated for you? Take a pill.
  • Need to drop those pounds of ugly fat? Sign up for liposuction on a regular schedule!

To some extent we all know someone who has done each of these things. Maybe you did too. Most of us know this kind of behavior is fruitless when it applies to healthy weight loss.
What we need instead is consistent and patient behavior. Put together a plan that will really work for your lifetime. Be real. Do not just plan for a day or a week. We need to make a conscious choice to select a reasonable diet and make a commitment to ourselves. Choose an exercise that will not wear out before you do. This is where we need to pay attention to detail and do things right and not be concerned about how fast it is going for us.

Professionals in the health care field agree that diets based on fads and pills are likely to do you more harm than good, particularly in terms of long range effects. This is true world-wide. They advise being sensible. Talk to your doctor. You need to change more than your food consumption. Your lifestyle needs a change. Or maybe more than one. Make a commitment to yourself and then honor it.

Recent research shows a grassroots interest in slowing down. At first it seems odd, in opposition to everything else in our fast paced lives. It is inviting to focus on a moderate exercise program even more than on the food we are eating. Just be sensible, eat more vegetables and fruits and less harmful or junky food. Add moderate exercise and pay attention. Your weight problem is likely to resolve itself. When you lose weight slowly it is a healthy weight loss and it contributes to habits that you are likely to keep for the rest of your life. It seems counter-intuitive at first but it does make sense. Try it.

What about diet pills? Skip them. They are wasting your money, your time and perhaps your health. Some diet pills have moderate or severe or fatal side effects, but they can still be purchased. Let the buyer beware seems to be a prudent position here.
Spend your resources wisely so you do not get discouraged and go off on a binge that lasts for decades. Some radical cures like magnet diet therapy or appetite suppressing eyeglasses are more likely to consume your money than you’re your extra calories.
