Free Holistic Weight Loss Guide Canungra – Introduction
Being overweight is just a symptom alerting you to do something about it.
The ultimate goal is not to lose weight but to gain health!
Are you confused about all the different diets and methods of losing weight?
Here are 5 warning signals:
- If it sounds too good, it probably is.
- Promising to lose weight and eat your cake may not work either.
- Promises like “Lose 6kg in one week” will be mainly fluid, not fat burning that takes longer.
- Strange-sounding diets promising the world are probably best avoided.
- Remember, you can’t be on a strict weight loss diet forever .. educate yourself about a balanced healthy fallback diet.
If you want to lose weight, tricks are useless; lifestyle and attitude are everything.
One of the most satisfying experiences is to embark on a goal and realise that one can achieve that goal, finally, after reaching that goal, experiencing a transformation setting in, feeling more confident, self-assured, and ready for everything, charging towards the next goal.
Losing weight can be such a goal, and achieving the resolution of behind-the-scenes personal issues can be an extremely satisfying by-product.
Having said that, I like to stress that I am a great believer in the journey towards the goal. The journey is the most enjoyable part; reaching the goal is the end-point of the achievement, making you ready for a new purpose and another exciting journey.
Therefore, please see your weight loss goal as an exciting journey, and reaching your goal is the start of a new you.
If you have a few pounds to spare, this message is for you, and maybe even more if you are obese, providing you are willing to change something within and around you.
It’s all about cause and effect, which translates into; “whatever you cause, will have an effect“. – If that effect is undesired, you may want to cause a different effect. Be truthful to yourself; the weight hasn’t crept up by itself, even if it seems like something else has caused it.
A bad diet, no exercise or a self-defeating mental attitude could be part of it. However, we will talk about an even deeper and possibly more critical reason; “your mind”, and why it allowed you or seemingly forced you to gain weight.
I will address weight gain topics as issues rather than as problems.
As you know already, there are no problems, only solutions. Start the solution for your issue now!
By the way, if you concentrate on a problem, it will get bigger.
Wherever you concentrate or put your energy towards that part will get bigger.
Concentrate on health, and health will get bigger, becoming more healthy.
See weight like a smoker who “can’t” stop smoking. The smoker is well aware of the health problems caused by smoking but still continues to smoke. The cigarettes are not the problem; it is an issue the smoker has, why s/he can’t stop.
For whatever reason you would like to lose weight, be it to enjoy better health with fewer risk factors, create a new you with new opportunities, or because you have a medical problem already, be assured that you can achieve what you want.
There are plenty of Weight Loss Programs, and most work to a certain degree. But if you like to achieve your goals, you are recommended to follow a program designed holistically, addressing both physical and mental issues.
I am sure you know that being overweight is scientifically proven to be a significant risk factor in most chronic and metabolic diseases…. and the good news is; that it can be changed successfully.
Do you have High Blood Pressure by example? By losing weight, you will have succeeded twice your ideal weight and normalised your blood pressure.
Always remember, losing weight and losing weight can be two different things!
Weight is made up of fat, water and muscle tissue.
Quick and dramatic weight loss is usually water, and fluid, and if you stay on the wrong program, this is followed by loss of muscle.
On the other hand, fat may be one of the last things you lose because you don’t lose it, you have to burn it, and that takes some time.
My recommendation; discard any program which promises “fast and dramatic” weight loss.
You don’t want fast weight loss; you want steady fat burning.
Therefore, a good weight loss program should stimulate fat burning and prevent the loss of critical protein reserves from the intestines, immune tissue, and muscle.
A good programme needs to prevent rebound weight gain (Yo-Yo syndrome) caused by reducing lean muscle mass due to low-calorie dieting.
And finally, a good program needs to address general common health problems that could interfere with efficient weight loss. Most (80%) obese people are reactive to gluten from wheat and probably have other food allergies or food sensitivities, often caused by years of eating the wrong food.
This program will include information on reactive (allergenic) foods, which you may have to remove from your diet for testing, to normalise hormonal and metabolic problems necessary for reaching your desired body weight.
No doubt, you may be aware of many other benefits you will gain by embarking on a weight loss program, such as lowering cardio risk factors, regulating inflammatory and immune problems, and generally enhancing your physical health and mood.
Let’s go, time to start … or just one more note …. coming back to the question; is this program and message for you?
Anyone interested in the mind and physical changes regarding better health will find relevant information within these pages. Furthermore, many of the techniques discussed are ‘general change techniques’ and can be customised for almost any problem or issue.
