So, how's it going with your New Year's resolutions? A good number of dieters fizzle out by now. If you've given up, you are in good company. Failing at dieting doesn't make you a failure. It just means your plan was a set up to fail. Sure you might lose weight, say 10 pounds. Not everyone operates the same when it comes to weight loss. There absolutely are general rules, but there are many factors to consider when losing weight such as metabolism, build, hereditary factors, environment, stress levels, coping skills, and relationship issues. Diets, detoxes, colon cleanses, and essential oils are not the solution. The answer is adopting a healthy lifestyle. Period.
A generation raised in the fast food lane are now adults raising children of their own. The propensity to be heavy was set during developmental years. Some of these adults will likely not know what it is like to be a healthy weight. I've worked with them in the gym. They can definitely become functionally fit, but they will always carry some extra pounds. What I've noticed is they usually decide that living a healthy lifestyle is the better thing. After months of frustration, they realize killing themselves at the gym is too much to maintain for the long haul. What about you? What's your journey been like? What has stalled your efforts?
