Getting healthy, losing weight and regaining your self-confidence leads to unlocking an extraordinary life. However, there is no magic pill or one-size-fits-all plan that can make that happen. The key to losing weight is developing a program that fits your personal journey and addresses your personality, lifestyle, health concerns and end goals.
Take A Comprehensive Approach
The key to maintaining a healthy body is paying attention to the right combination of three components: good nutrition, physical activity and behaviour modification.
Good nutrition is the key element to boost your health. Reject processed foods full of additives or other artificial substances in favour of a sustainable healthy diet. You’ll be trading in excess salt, sugar and fat for dense nutrients your body can use. Consume fewer calories than you burn, managing portion sizes and calories is critical to improve your health.
Make sure you engage in physical activity that you enjoy every day. It doesn’t need to be a marathon; taking the stairs at work and walking or biking is a great place to start. Choose whatever works for you and your schedule so you know you’ll get it done each day.
Behaviour modification is often the main key to maintaining your health. Modify your emotions and behaviours now so you can manage your weight effectively moving forward. This means learning to think differently about planning meals, staying active and prioritizing physical health, surrounding yourself with supportive friends and family and believing that you can – and will – achieve your goals.
Every single decision we make – from what is on our plate to how many sleeps we catch at night – has the potential to either help or hurt us.
You only get one body, that’s the deal.
