I wholeheartedly agree with this article!! Even though you can watch the contestants on The Biggest Loser lose weight quickly and with the most grueling workouts, that doesn’t mean that you can or should start that way. Obesity has become a mental issue, sometimes more than a physical one. The emotions that surround your reasons for being obese are stronger than the physical impulses to overeat. Most times you don’t eat because your stomach tells you to, you eat and eat because your heart and ego tell you to!!
This is why holistic health/wellness is key to a successful lifestyle. No matter what path you take – alternative medicine, exercise, nutrition/diet changes – you have to approach all aspects of YOUR being – mental/emotional, physical, spiritual (relationships and not the emotions and conditioning that dictate your choices in life) – with the same amount of zeal and effort. It doesn’t make sense to do all the exercise and fasting and all this if you haven’t resolved the emotional issues that lead you to eat in the first place.
I probably said this so many times on so many occasions. You’ve probably heard this from others many times before. That’s fine. As long as it takes for you to do the right things, the things that better you, I’ll say it over and over and over.
Teach One. Reach One. Each One. That’s the healthiest junk I can give you today. Bless!
