Lose Weight NOW! - The Truth or Consequences Diet?
If you knew when you were going to die, would you really want to know? If you knew when you were going to lose your life, would you do anything different? If you had a choice of living longer or living a better quality of life, which would you choose, longer or better?
People say, "if only" they had known they were going to have this happen to me, they would have done things differently. IF ONLY?I had not stressed so much about life. IF ONLY?I had known this was going to happen; maybe I would have stopped smoking, laid off a few hamburgers and fries. Who knows? Maybe I would have taken the stairs more, ridden my bike, and had a medical check up more often.
What if you could actively change the outcome of your life by eating better and getting daily exercise? What if you felt better, had more energy, less pain, and a better attitude toward aging? What if you approached life with more confidence, rather than dreading the day? The fact is you will never know ahead of time when your life will end. Life, love and logic never seem to be on the same page. You can leave this earth anytime and for any reason. How you decide to live those days before you do go is your choice. You can continue down the path you're going with achy joints, low energy levels, high stress, and poor eating habits or you can choose a different path.
The health of America is going to get worse before it gets better. Diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, heart disease-are all at epidemic levels. And for the first time in history the kids of today are projected not to live as long as there parents have. The only way for the health of America to get better is for you to be personally responsible, change your attitudes toward exercise, and support one another in the process.
The silent threesome of denial, pride, and lazy has been muted by the fantasy fitness land programs promises of immediate results. This silent treatment is killing you from the INSIDE OUT. Until a few years ago, it was thought that Americans were healthy. Of course, that's not true. We've had a health problem for years.
In the "good years," more money, more marketing and more-for-me attitudes enabled you to focus on making the big bucks. It allowed you to put off worrying about healthy bodies. The accent was on NOW and not later. But the fiscal wealth we accumulated years ago is NOW being drained by our physical healthcare costs. Eventually, your bad health will consume all the extra dollars you worked so hard to earn. Some of the responsibility falls with the big corporations, insurance companies and hospital groups. But at the end of the day, the buck stops with YOU.
The reality of this situation bites; however, the solution is not to ignore it, but to encourage people to embrace it. Many of you have either given up on yourself or just flat out are living in denial. Either way the choice is still yours. The fact of the matter is there is still hope for America and there is still hope for you, too.
Don't let the buck stop with you. Take care of your own life before it takes charge of you.
What if you knew that if you didn't exercise, you would face the CONSEQUENCES soon?
What if you knew that your kids would do exactly as you do? Most people wait until something happens to them or to someone close to them before they change their lifestyle habits. There are no guarantees that healthy living will add one more day to your life, but what if it could? At the very least, what if your day-to-day quality of life could be better?
Or worse yet, what if tomorrow a stroke, heart attack, or cancer struck your life? What then? The first thing to do is for you to face the music or embrace the reality of your health. Accepting your circumstances does not mean you are admitting defeat. It means you are starting to build a foundation in order to move forward.
In a Nut Shell:
Life sometimes has a way of giving us slight hints or sometimes shocking wake-up calls. The question is, "Will you answer the call?" Would your life be any different if you knew what the future held? Most of us would say it would be. The truth is in that old saying, "We really are not promised tomorrow." You may not be able to change when you will die, but you sure can change how you feel each day through daily exercise and eating the right foods. What would your life be like if you felt better, had more energy and lowered your stress levels? Can you imagine? No one wants bad things to happen to their health. No one wants to pay the price for his or her bad decision, right?
"Are you going to let Denial, Pride, and Laziness keep their grip on you?" There are no guarantees that exercise and eating will prolong death or ward off a disease. However, there is a good chance they can give you a better quality of life? No doubt our health as a whole will get worse before it gets better, but it does not have to be that way for you.
The bottom line is: denying your health is a losing cause; entertaining pride is a waste of energy; and being lazy is no excuse for anything. In the end, only you will be able to decide to accept the truth or deal with the consequences.

Effects of Exercise on the Relationship Between Low Self-Esteem and Obesity in Children (May 2000)
Weight Loss vs. Fat Loss
In order to lose weight, your body must burn more calories than it takes in, but keep in mind that your body needs calories for energy and when you exercise; your body needs even more calories. Before I talk about energy, the first thing you must understand is that losing weight and losing fat is not the same thing. Just because you lose weight, does not mean you lose fat, and just because you lose fat, does not mean you lose weight. When people talk about losing weight, what the really want to do is lose the excess fat on their body and obtain an attractive figure.

Pathological Eating Disorders and Poly-Behavioral Addiction
When considering that pathological eating disorders and their related diseases now afflict more people globally than malnutrition, some experts in the medical field are presently purporting that the world's number one health problem is no longer heart disease or cancer, but obesity. According to the World Health Organization (June, 2005), "obesity has reached epidemic proportions globally, with more than 1 billion adults overweight - at least 300 million of them clinically obese - and is a major contributor to the global burden of chronic disease and disability. Often coexisting in developing countries with under-nutrition, obesity is a complex condition, with serious social and psychological dimensions, affecting virtually all ages and socioeconomic groups." The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (June, 2005), reports that "during the past 20 years, obesity among adults has risen significantly in the United States. The latest data from the National Center for Health Statistics show that 30 percent of U.S. adults 20 years of age and older - over 60 million people - are obese. This increase is not limited to adults. The percentage of young people who are overweight has more than tripled since 1980. Among children and teens aged 6-19 years, 16 percent (over 9 million young people) are considered overweight."
Thankfully, winter does not last forever! In the spring there is no more temptation to dip into the white flour canister and whip up biscuits and gravy or grandma's banana bread. Ah, as the daylight hours grow longer, we lose the urge to rummage through the fridge for high carb "no-no's." With the onset of spring, thick, sweet, hot, heavy, bloating, high glycemic platters of food suddenly have no appeal!

Diet Fads: Supermarket Sheep
Eighteen or twenty years ago, I was into high protein, high fat, low carbohydrate diets, courtesy of the original Atkins Diet Revolution and, to an even greater extent, Stillman's Quick Weight Loss Diet (which I must admit I still prefer to Atkins but that's merely personal taste). At the time, every aisle was loaded with labels proclaiming Low Fat or Reduced Fat. I didn't care about fat and sought much different information. Unfortunately, low fat was "in" and I felt alone and abandoned.
Weight Loss Information -- Setting Effective Goals
Weight loss information is often confusing and misleading. The more specific we are in discussing weight loss information the better it is for everyone. Here's an example...realistic goals. What are realistic goals? I wrote an article not to long ago that defined "realistic" as a 5-10% reduction of your total body weight. The 5-10% reduction is all the weight you need to lose to show a health benefit or improvement.

Good Food/Bad Food Whats Left to Eat?
We've entered the Twilight Zone when it comes to the multitude of diets being promoted today. Starting with the Atkins Diet, then the South Beach Diet, now the Hamptons Diet and more. All higher in protein, lower in carbs, but the distinction should be quality of carbs, not singling out one nutrient entirely. If you are on the Atkins Diet, South Beach Diet or any other variation of a high protein/low carb diet simply adjust from eating low quality carbs like refined flour and sugar products (think if it comes in a box, it's likely low quality) to eating more whole food products like fresh vegetables and fruits - yes fruits.
