Sometimes it feels like the whole world is trying to reduce weight, but the more they try, the fatter they get! It’s not normal. There is something wrong. Have you ever asked yourself why this is happening? In this day and age of “low fat” everything, why is it that so many still struggle to become slim naturally?
Maybe, just maybe, we aren’t being told the truth!
I’m keen to take a look at some of the reasons behind this and to share what’s actually working for me. I don’t have the latest, greatest diet plan to offer you, but I do have some tips that may help you, after all it’s never just one reason, but a variety. That’s why I want to look at our lifestyle and see what is happening there.
It’s really very unfortunate that companies; the media, and even our own local doctors, are all telling us the way to slim down is to cut down on saturated fat… the very fat we need if we want health! I’m sure doctors in general mean well, but unfortunately although they are extremely learned people, they lack knowledge about the food we eat. Not all of them, thank goodness, but most!
Then on top of that, the media pick it up and run with it. We all know that people in general will believe everything they hear on the telly as if it’s the Word of God.
So here we are living in this day of enlightenment, being fed lies one after the other, about what is good for us and what is bad. The agenda is not human health but the lining of certain pockets! Almost anything goes to that end.
“Low fat” food only brings harm, not health. For ages they convinced us that saturated fat was bad for the heart. To counteract it, companies brought out vegetable oils and margarine, which most of us began using believing it was for the best. For years, and even still now, people have fallen for this, religiously eating “low fat” everything and drinking “diet” drinks, and using “healthy” canola oil!
But what has happened?
People are no longer overweight… they’re now obese!
It’s time to learn the truth about our food, and stop believing all the incorrect hype we are fed daily from the ads on telly, through to the large writing on virtually all the packets, bottles, and tinned foods that line the shelves in our local supermarkets.
Are you ready to begin some easy healthy lifestyle changes? Have you tried everything else in the book? Are you still caught up in the yo-yo way of losing weight… take it off, put it on…. take it back off, put it back on. Ugh! That’s yukky! Depresses me just thinking about it.
You may be asking yourself if I am lovely and slim like a model, and my answer is “unfortunately no!” With me, it’s a work in progress, but I’m happy with the results so far.
You see I’ve lost the “diet to lose weight” consciousness …
and picked up on looking at “my diet for my health’s sake”.
The weight falling off me is just a side issue… but one I’m extremely happy with.
I’ve been documenting within these pages just what it is that I have found to be working for me. I’m very aware that we are all different… our bodies work differently, but sometimes it’s worth taking a look at what someone else is doing and learning from them. If you apply it to your lifestyle and it doesn’t work for you, no worries. Not everything will. I think we need to accept that. But surprise, surprise! Some things definitely will!
You need to let us know what you’ve been experiencing, because we can all learn from each other. So let’s share in the comments down below. To me it’s truly wonderful to become slim naturally without all the drama of dieting. How about you?
