What Are You Willing To Do To Achieve Your Weight Loss Goals

What are you willing to​ do to​ achieve your weight loss goals?

I’m approached quite regularly about which diet is​ best,​ which
book would I recommend and what exercise program should a
person follow. People think they can just purchase a​ book to
read and then some sort of​ magic occurs whereby reading it
will cause their fat to​ magically disappear. Well,​ I’m here
to break the​ news to​ you,​ the​ $40 investment in​ your weight
loss book is​ just the​ start,​ there’s a​ lot of​ hard work and
other expenses involved.

Time Investment

There’s time invested in​ your education (reading,​ watching
videos etc),​ time you’ll spend exercising doing both cardio
and weight training. There’s time spent creating your new
meal plans as​ well as​ preparation of​ those meals the​ day
before or​ days in​ advance. There’s time involved in​ doing
extra laundry because you’re suddenly doing more exercising
now on​ your weight loss journey.

Let me ask you this: What’s your favorite television show?
How much television are you watching in​ a​ given week? 1 Hour?
Six? Are you willing to​ eliminate television to​ allow
yourself time to​ go to​ the​ gym and prepare foods for the​ next
day? if​ not,​ then don’t bother buying books that recommend
food and exercise programs? it​ takes time to​ prepare food for
5 or​ 6 meals in​ a​ day and to​ go to​ the​ gym once or​ twice a
day. Weight loss requires a​ time investment.

Food Investment

The quality of​ the​ food you put in​ your body is​ directly
proportional to​ the​ quality of​ your cells. It’s your cells
that create energy and make your various bodily systems run,​
and if​ they’re given the​ best quality food,​ then they’re able
to regenerate and be healthy.

Conversely,​ low quality food creates a​ low quality cell. A
low quality cell is​ not up to​ the​ demand of​ generating energy
nor the​ proper removal of​ wastes which then results in
sickness and disease.

In conversation with a​ fellow regarding his food program and
how he could make corrections to​ his diet to​ improve his
health,​ burn fat,​ improve his workouts and achieve his weight
loss goal,​ I suggested a​ few “new” products. Oatmeal,​ some
whole grain wraps,​ spring mix salad,​ and Essential Fatty Acid,​
Almond butter and whole grain basmati rice were a​ few places
to begin.

“You didn’t tell me how expensive it​ was going to​ be!” was his

Well,​ I don’t consider it​ expensive,​ so I would not have said
that it​ was.

Our cells are our power plants in​ our body. Our body is
constantly rebuilding itself daily and hourly. Our skeleton
replaces itself once a​ year and the​ muscular lining of​ our
stomach and our intestines is​ replaced every 3 to​ 4 days so it
only makes sense to​ give it​ the​ highest quality food. Doesn’t

You’re probably going to​ come to​ the​ same conclusion that most
other people do. the​ food I put in​ my body creates a​ healthy
body and I must take care in​ my food choices.

Whole grain oatmeal costs more money than cocoa puffs. Raw
almonds cost more than hickory smoked almonds and you probably
never knew what Essential Fats or​ Pro Biotics were. Weight
loss requires an​ investment in​ food.

Cutting Expenses to​ Reach Your Goal

If you’re not able to​ increase the​ amount of​ food you eat
financially or​ the​ quality of​ the​ food you eat (organic),​ then
what are you willing to​ do to​ get it. Are you willing to​ cut
some other costs? Are you willing to​ increase your sales at
your job or​ home business to​ be able to​ afford this new
change? the​ first reasonable step is​ to​ make some switches or
replacements. Take note of​ non nutritional foods in​ your day
- consider snacks,​ junk foods,​ coffee,​ pop,​ cigarettes (I hope
you’re not still smoking),​ milk or​ dairy products,​ alcohol,​
vitamins,​ tums,​ Rolaids,​ pepto bismol etc and see how much
you’re spending on​ a​ daily or​ monthly basis. Are you willing
to replace these for higher quality nutritional foods that
will support you in​ your weight loss goals? it​ can be a​ scary
thought for some people. Others accept the​ challenge readily
because they’ve truly committed to​ their weight loss goals and
are willing to​ do Whatever it​ Takes! Switching and replacing
is the​ easiest thing to​ do. Weight Loss requires sacrifice.

Invest in​ Yourself

Your body,​ your mind,​ your soul and becoming the​ best you can
be is​ the​ single best investment you can make. Make the
decision to​ eat the​ cleanest food you can,​ make the​ healthiest
choices you can,​ begin to​ switch from non nutritional foods to
nutritional foods and let go negativity in​ your life. Weight
loss is​ easy,​ but requires some investment.

Eat Well,​ Be Well
