There’s NO ‘magic pill’!

Contrary to what people may believe, It doesn’t take a miracle to lose weight.  However, it does take commitment and drive… there is no ‘magic pill’.

 

It’s not about going on a strict 1100 calorie diet (please don’t do that).  You don’t have to ban your favorite food forever.  It’s not about killing yourself in the gym for 2 hours a day either.  It’s about exercising on a REGULAR basis, eating healthy, clean foods as much as possible, and yes, OCCASSIONALLY indulging in some of your favorite foods or treats.  The key word being occasionally!  Instead of eating a whole bag of Peanut Butter Cups 5 times a week, try to limit it to a couple pieces once a week.  Instead of eating pizza 2 times a week, try to limit it to once or twice a month.  Plan when you will indulge and use good judgment.  Remember PORTION CONTROL!!  Even if you are eating really healthy, you CAN  gain weight if you are eating too much.  You really don’t need 2 cups of rice and 8 ounces of chicken for dinner.

 

Honestly, if you want to lose weight it all starts in your head.  There is no secret!!  Be consistent in your workouts and eating habits. Go for a LIFESTYLE change and not the next fad diet that probably is not do-able for very long and may not be that healthy for you.  Stop thinking about it as losing weight and start thinking about becoming healthier… the weight-loss will follow!
