When you say to yourself, “I can’t lose weight”, you are not only prophesying the future, but you are programming your body to do just that. But what if you say “Yes, I can lose weight!” – this statement has the opposite effect and you are getting on the right path to your weight loss success. Dieting and exercising go hand in hand with the emotional aspect of losing weight. Weight loss is a process that takes time and dedication, plus a few easy concepts about nutrition and exercise that are revealed in my new book on weight loss for men and women.
When you have a lot of belly fat, you may know that the body produces a hormone called Cortisol under stress. The stress hormone cortisol increases fat storage around your midsection, putting you at risk of heart disease and diabetes. So here you go, reading this ebook will change the way you think about weight loss, and having more information on the topic will eliminate the stress of uncertainty and unknown.
Think more positively about your life and your weight loss. You will lose the extra pounds in no time if you do.
Sleep is also an important part of losing weight. Try getting an extra hour or two of sleep at night if you are on the “I can’t lose weight” bandwagon. If you don’t get 7-9 hours of sleep per night, your metabolism slows down and your body doesn’t function correctly. Night shift workers have really screwed up their metabolisms. It is very stressful for the human body to work at night. All of us should sleep at night, not during the day.
You have done all the things above and still can’t lose weight. Let’s take a closer look at this situation. Do you drink enough water? If you answer that you drink enough fluids, then I want to know if you drink pop or other sweetened beverages? You need to stop if you do. Soda, diet soda, and other sweetened drinks are called empty calories because they have no nutritional value. All they do is add to your excess fat. You can lose approximately 40 pounds in a year if you do nothing else but stop drinking sugary drinks.
What’s that, diet soda? Diet soda is sweetened with artificial sweeteners and is basically poison. Diet drinks actually trick your body into remaining fat. When you drink diet pop, your body thinks it is getting something of value, and when it realizes you were just kidding, the brain signals the stomach that it is still hungry, and you end up eating more.
Stick to water and maybe some green tea. Green tea gives you a boost of antioxidants, which are so important for your health, and it tastes great, too.
Reduce your stress level, divorce if you must, sleep more at night, and give up soda drinks. This should help turn the phrase, I can’t lose weight, into Yes, I can lose weight.
