06/12/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Thursday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 10. June 2014 16:22

I was reading a magazine that gives information about weight training and healthy eating.  Inside, a reader wrote, “I’m 17 pounds shy of my goal for summer. What suggestions for quick weight loss do you have?” Their response was “take a weight loss pill.” The one they suggested runs $90 for a 30 day supply.  It makes you wonder if possibly they get a fee from the manufacturer.

 That is not the solution for long-term health. Is getting into a swimsuit for a pool party worth that?  Yo-yo weight loss through wacky diets and diet pills is terrible for your body.  It also sets up a terrible mindset that thin is the solution for everything.  Eating clean is a solution for better health and energy and a positive bi-product is a leaner body shape.

Make small,medium,and bigger healthy changes to your overall diet every week. Add some kind of cardio and weight training 3-5 days per week. If that requires getting up 30-60 minutes earlier, do it! Do child-watching swaps with a friend so you can go for a brisk walk (indoors at the mall, a gym, a YMCA, or outdoors).

These are positive changes that will help you safely lose the extra weight you may seek. Long term health is most important.   Taking a pill is usually not successful, it’s not good for your body, and it costs you a pretty penny.  Don’t look at your choices as a DIET but rather a lifestyle change.
