Weight Loss Management That Works

If I had a dollar for every time I heard “calories in calories out” …

Weight loss management that works is based on health. If you want to be able to maintain your healthy weight, you need to think long term.

When health is your primary concern, you will be willing to learn about how your body works and to do what is necessary to maintain it appropriately. All of a sudden, you are not just focused on losing weight, you are focused on overall health and well being.

Therefore, if you really want to manage your weight successfully, begin by changing your attitude about your goal. A weight goal will lead to temporary success, if that! A health goal will more likely lead to long term weight management.

You notice that I can’t say a health goal will lead to long term weight management definitively. You see, you really need to commit to the health goal. If you pretend to be interested in health, just to achieve the weight goal, ultimately you will stop focusing on your health as soon as your weight goal is reached. True success is only achieved when we focus on health and understand that health is an ongoing forever goal. That is why it is more likely to lead to long term success.

Towards the goal of understanding your health, understanding food and how it affects your body is also important. In the video I go through some vital ideas.

Dr. Mark Hyman wrote a book that I believe also would be helpful in understanding food and the effects of food on the body:

Why We Can’t Trust Ourselves with Food

Ever find yourself in front of an empty extra large bag of chips and think to yourself “I only meant to have a few”? That’s what happens when we allow ourselves to eat food without any restrictions. We can’t trust ourselves with food. Mostly because we were never taught to manage our food intake.

You see, when we are hungry, we seek carbohydrate heavy foods. This is simply because carby foods taste better. Now carby fatty foods taste the best. But we have been taught that fat is bad and should be avoided lest we

Jillian Michaels Attacks Keto – Exposing Her Bias and Harmful Impact

Jillian Michaels attacks keto without really giving any concrete examples to back up her arguments. This is very frustrating given that celebrities have a lot of influence.

I do believe that we should challenge the norm. That is how progress is made. However, when we challenge, it should be based on facts.

If Jillian Michaels believes that there are issues with the Ketogenic diet, it would be best to list the issues rather than rant about the diet without

What’s So Special About Low Carb and Keto?

You might be wondering what’s so special about low carb and keto diets. The whole internet seems to be talking about these diets and arguing about the health benefits or death traps that are inherent in each.

From my perspective, I’ve encountered very good results with a Ketogenic lifestyle. Within 3 months, I was able to solve an evolving hip issue, solve long term back and knee issues, and I was able to regulate my weight.

Considering that I came to the ketogenic diet looking for a solution to an inflammation problem (hip) and I left with the solution, plus improved
