Weight management isn’t just about weight loss but keeping it off. Anybody can lose weight to get to their goals but keeping themselves at their ideal weight requires permanent habit changes around food.
There’s been a large focus in the media on diets and calories and too little about what it takes to change eating habits permanently. Something no diet tackles. We’ve known for a long time that consuming less calories than you burn for long periods is a recipe for health problems.
Fad diets and losing weight quickly isn’t the answer. Consistent delicious healthy food choices and portion control gets most people to their ideal weight over time, and makes it easier to stay there.
In this selection of materials, we cover topics like night eating, damaging soda drinking, living life in moderation, hunger pangs, emotional eating and much more.
Enjoy the articles.
this article you’ll find discussions and answers to: 1) Why you would want to go gluten-free and what it means? 2) What’s Celiac Disease and intolerance to gluten? 3)The challenges in going gluten-free and strategies for overcoming difficulties to stick with it. 4) Further resources for help in becoming and staying gluten free. Over the last 10 years there’s been a lot of talk about ‘gluten-free’ diets being healthier for you. Conversely, gluten has been made a ‘culprit’ in leading to health issues for some people. So many processed and staple groceries people buy contain gluten. If that isn’t enough, many people are ‘hooked’ on the products, partially because they’re habituated or addicted to gluten. More and more health professionals are asking their patients to steer away from gluten products and start using healthier alternatives. For some, making this change is difficult for a myriad of reasons. Read more…Read More
Many people are addicted to sugar – the white, refined, crystallized sugar often times found in junk foods, or added to coffee and soda, or to carb-loaded foods such as pasta and breads known as complex carbohydrates. If that isn’t enough, people are also addicted to products containing corn syrup, which have high amounts of sugar. When you speak to people about sugar most know, and admit, it’s one of the unhealthiest substances they could consume, but they still use and over-indulge in it. Many just can’t seem to break free from their addiction to it! There are a few reasons why sugar can be highly addictive for some individuals. Let’s look at how folks end up addicted to sugar and the impact it has on your body…Read More
By the fact you’re reading this article I know you want to do something about losing weight. Most likely you’ve tried before (dare I say many?) and are at the same point again wondering how to make it stick this time? People go to extremes and try various expensive weight loss programs, exercise programs, and even diet pills and ‘miracle’ supplements to try and lose weight. Many also try various diet fads, low carb diets one moment, and then low fat diets the next, only to find themselves taking backward steps while muttering, “Why is it so darn hard to lose weight?” So, why is it so darn hard to lose weight?Read More
It seems that losing weight for many people seems to be an increasing global trend. Let’s be honest, North Americans are considered to be one of the most obese societies in the world. Is it any surprise that many are asked by their physicians to lose weight, or they themselves believe that it is time for a physical makeover? Well, many will engage in dietary and fitness programs which will help them lose weight. Some will be successful and some will not, as they will revert back to their old habits, or lack the ambition to carry through on their intentions. For those who have lost the weight, what is next to make sure this doesn’t happen to you? Read more…Read More
Are you an individual who’s desperately trying to lose weight or reduce the adipose fatty tissue on your body and you’ve resorted to ‘calorie counting’? If you are, how’s it working for you so far? The truth is you may be barking up the wrong tree, or wrong supermarket isle! While a popular chorus at one time with weight loss and nutrition gurus– “lose weight by burning more calories than you take in” – the fact is losing weight is more complicated than that. How more difficult? Read on here to find out and what to do…Read More
Almost every health-related TV show or newspaper/magazine is denouncing processed sugars and of course soft drinks. Are they really that bad? Some media forums are going so far as to call soft drinks “health crushers.” Why are they suddenly so bad, or have they always been, but we’re just now identifying all of the negative consequences associated with consuming them? For starters, Harvard Medical School conducted an 11-year study on the effects of diet cola and kidney functioning in 3,000 women. What they found was eye-opening! The consumption of diet cola (most likely caused by the diet sweeteners in them) was associated with a two-fold risk for potential kidney decline. Unfortunately, the not so good information for soda consumption did not end there…Read More
Are you an individual who is ‘always hungry’ or have a difficult time walking away from eating whenever food is presented, even though you know you’re really only eating just for the sake of eating? Perhaps the problem is all about your own ‘will power.’ Also, perhaps you’re trying to cut down on calories, or modify your eating habits due to being on a new eating program or diet but it’s making you unable to control your appetite. Many diets cause hunger pangs, which is the result of your stomach emptying after digesting your last meal, and the walls come into contact and rub against one another. Is there something you can do to control your hunger and retrain your hunger instincts? Yes, there is… read more…Read More
A New Year is here and many people are already discussing how they want to, or plan on losing weight in the New Year. Many people will be going to weight loss clinics, gyms, paying personal trainers or dieticians, and trying to eat right. When I refer to “right” I am referring to the “right” healthier foods or best super foods. Interestingly, many people have difficulty losing the weight they want to lose because they do not eat at the “right” times of the day! The right time to eat is before night time, you know that “time” of the day when your body is slowing down in terms of metabolism and sucks up calories like a Chia Pet! Here’s more…Read More
There are two important secrets to weight loss I’ve learned in helping my clients, and critical to know if you’re considering a weight loss program of any type. It doesn’t matter if its weight watchers, Virtual Gastric Band, Jenny Craig, weight loss hypnosis, South Beach Diet or North Beach Diet or any beach diet. Read this before you go further for a reality check and before you part with your hard-earned money. You need to decide if you want to lose weight permanently or just as a temporary measure to feel good for awhile. Unfortunately most people fall into losing weight temporary because losing it permanently takes a mind change and not a diet and… mental toughness and a word spelled C-O-M-M-I-T-M-E-N-T. Here’s why.Read More
One of the toughest things I often hear people tell me is that they have a very difficult time living life in moderation. Apparently, many of them just do not know when to say when! In my article on Portion Control and Learning a Four Letter Word, I discussed how some people have a hard time putting down their weapon of choice (fork) at the dinner table once they start to chow down. When it comes to buffets, all bets are off so to speak… eat as much as you can and make sure you get your money’s worth! What is the fine line between satisfaction versus satiation when it comes to eating? Good question!Read More
