There is no one simple solution, diet, or miracle pill that is going to help you lose weight and live a healthier life. Being healthy is a choice and a lifestyle decision that has great rewards.
To begin, you must make the decision that you DO want to change.
Next, we suggest you go through your refrigerator and pantry and take an inventory. When you find fatty, high calorie, processed food, replace them with healthier choices. Use olive oil instead of butter, toss the corn chips and replace them with seeds, nuts, and other natural, healthy snacks. Eliminate the white rice and bread from your pantry. Instead stock up on brown rice and whole wheat bread. Try trading your sweets for fruit, and stick to whole, natural foods. Eating healthy foods now decreases the likelihood of unwanted doctor visits and illnesses later. By making healthier choices, you are doing your best to lead a healthy life.
The next step is to start incorporating exercise into your daily routine. Walking 30 minutes a day can give you added health benefits. No matter what your choice of exercise, start slow and work your way up.
Finally, add some form of stress relief techniques into your life. Whether you meditate for five minutes, stretch, or do yoga, begin slowly, as with exercise.
It is important that you take one step at a time and perfect each step before moving onto the next.
