Today’s guest post comes from My Fight With Fat, created to help people regain their confidence, motivation, self-esteem and power needed to love themselves and win their own fight with fat. My Fight With Fat’s philosophy is of no diets; just make better food choices, daily exercise and positive thinking. With this philosophy we can all live a healthy life and prevent the top leading killing diseases associated with fat such as heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes just to name a few.
Love Yourself… “our lives are priceless” is one of the main focuses of My Fight With Fat. Here are four easy-to-follow health and wellness tips.
1. Did you know that you can turn your body into a “fat burning machine?” Our bodies are designed to use the carbohydrates we eat as their first source of energy. When you reduce the amount of carbohydrates you eat as well as your total caloric intake, your body will then turn to its alternative source-stored body fat for fuel; this is called ketosis. This will help you understand how to eat better to lose weight.
2. Today, take a moment to measure your chest, waist, abdomen and hips, and write those measurements on your daily action plan. Keep this information with your other records and goals, so that as you progress, you will have a way to track your progress in inches! You’ll be amazed at how your measurements change. If you find yourself losing momentum or inspiration, looking back at your old measurements can be a great motivation when you see your progress right there on the paper!
3. The best part about getting into shape is not the initial week or first months like most people think… it’s consistency and making it a lifestyle. The first months are easy. If you can live your life pointed in the direction of healthy eating, positive thinking and daily exercise it will pay off at the end! Don’t give up hang in there.
4. During your change to healthy eating, supplements are very important. Contact your primary care physician for their advice before taking any supplements.
