The Mental Game Of Weight Loss
Many of us have tried losing weight in the past only to have it all find it's way back to us and then we notice it brought a few friends along.
Then there's nothing left to do but feel frustrated, and suffer with our weight problem for another several months or years until we get sick and tired again of bering sick and tired and try once again to lose that unsightly weight.
But the key to weight loss isn't in your diet or what supplements you're taking. No, it's in your mind and your ability to take constnat consistant action in the present.
The big pitfall of weight loss is that most people think they're just going to go on a diet until they reach their goal weight, and then they can go back to their old eating habits.
That's like going back to an ex boyfriend or girlfriend, chances are you'll be right back where you started and your situation won't be any better.
When you start to "cheat" on your diet, it's a slippery slope back to where you already were. And the scary thing is you don't ever really realize it until it's too late.
I'm sure you've experienced it before "It's only going to be one time, it's ok" So you cheat on your diet...and that one time turns into once a day which quickly grows into a few times a day...and then you're not on your diet anymore.
You see, it's not about changing your eating habits for a couple of months until you're at your goal weight...it's about changing your lifestyle of eating to be the healthy person you want to be.
And it all starts in your mind. Priming your mind for a change in your diet is the most important thing you must do before starting a diet. Otherwise you leave yourself open to going back to your old eating habits.
A technique you can use and that I teach to my clients is "acting as if". See when you act as if, your subconscious mind (Where all your habits that you do unconsciously are stored) can't tell the differece between fantasy and reality.
So when you "act as if" you're a skinny person, you begin to change your beliefs and subconscious habits to reflect that.
Ask yourself "Would a skinny person eat this?" If not then don't eat it...because you are a skinny person.
By acting as if, you are reshaping your belief system about yourself and your weight. Ask yourself "How would a skinny person act?" And then do that.
As you change your limiting beliefs about yourself, you'll change the results you've been getting with weight loss.

Relieve Stress at Your Workplace: It Might Just Help You Manage Your Weight!
No doubt about it, when we feel stressed we want to raid the candy machine, or down a pint of ice cream. Of course we feel immediate gratification because of the "feel good" endorphins that are released when we eat something we love but now new research confirms these food urges are caused by more than endorphins.

The Truth About Dieting And Weight Loss
You may not like what I'm about to say, but dieting alone will not help you to lose weight. Watching your diet alone is not going to yield results unless it is coupled with proper exercise. You have to make a conscious effort for this. And the solution for this is a workout routine. Yes there are people that lose weight just from cutting down on their fat intake, carbohydrate intake, protein intake, or calories in general; but have you seen the results under their clothes? It is not a pretty sight! Without exercise (weight training in particular) your body has no way of toning up, and you could be left with near sagging skin with a non attractive shape. Also, losing weight from diets is mostly water weight loss and not fat loss. Do you want to lose water from your body and become dehydrated? Or do you want to lose Fat? The absolute only way to burn a high percentage of body fat is through exercise. The only reason why anyone should choose a diet plan is to see which one can help complement their workout program. The diet plan you choose should be one that you can stick to for the rest of your life, and it should be healthy for your body. Diet is such a short term word, so think of dieting as changing your eating habits for the long term. Your eating habits should provide you with enough protein for your muscles and enough carbohydrates for energy as well as other vital nutrients.

Diet Preparaton -- The Impact of Sleep and Stress
When you have started a diet in the past, how much sincere and attentive focus did you give to preparing for your diet? Isn't it true that usually you are getting the food together a particular diet requires, buying yet another tread mill (or hauling out the old one covered in dust from the last diet), getting another gym membership, planning that last big blowout gluttonous meal you're going to eat because you are going to have to starve for the next eight weeks. The above really isn't an exaggeration. People spend a lot of time preparing everything else for their new diet program except the body!If you are to succeed in keeping weight off, you must take seriously the preparation of the whole person--body, mind, and soul, right? Of course you do! In the next few articles, I will focus on two very important and related components of preparing your body for weight loss programs: sleep and stress. Think about these two questions. Question 1: "What are your chances of actually losing the weight you want to lose? Question 2: What are the chances you'll keep that weight off for at least five years? If you have been on the fad diet band wagon even once in your life, you already look at those two questions warily and with some doubt about your success. I would venture a guess and say that most of us have tried more than one diet that promised fast results with very little if any hunger and no exercise, right?
Diets May Have Long Term Side Effects...Do You Know What They Are?
To see the "low carb" diets on the way out is a somewhat reflective process, not that I was an advocate of ketogenic diets at all unless you have Adolescent Epilepsy, but bringing the "low carb or ketogenic diet" into the forefront of our American Society meant that more people were being educated about obesity, food and eating. This acknowledgment about food was astounding and became overwhelming , causing restaurant chains and some farmers to really suffer from these trendy diets, people have lost farms that have been in their families for years , businesses that lend job and economic stability to an area, have gone out of business or lost business, all on a dietary whim, with no research done on the side-effects of "not eating" what these diets restrict.

The Evil of Carbohydrates (?)
In recent years, carbohydrates have been labeled as the nutrition 'bad guy' because of the increases in insulin that occurs during metabolic processes.
