You control your destiny. If you’re not happy with where you are in life, then maybe it’s time to make a change. It all starts by taking the first step. What do you want to change? If you’re at this blog, it’s probably better health, weight loss, fitness, more energy or a fantastic body. We can help you achieve all those things by helping you with a scientifically created personalized diet. It’s designed specifically for your DNA and personal goals.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed and unsure of how to reach your goals, we can help.
Some people jump right into a project and learn as they go, while others start small and build. If you’re not ready for our full program, you could start smaller and work your way to your own personalized diet and workout program. Start by including more vegetables in your meals and cut out food with added sugar. Skip the drive-through and fast foods and instead, have more whole foods. As far as exercise goes, just walking every day is a start. The good news is that you can break that half hour of exercise down to three 10-minute sessions. Once you feel the difference, you’ll want even more, and we’re here ready to help.
Make some other healthy changes in your life.
Try carrying a bottle of water with you everywhere you go and sip on it throughout the day. You need approximately eight 8-oz containers of water, so you’ll have to fill that bottle several times. Watch your sleep schedule. Too little sleep can be destructive to your body and any weight loss program. When you lack sleep, your body produces less leptin, the hormone that makes you feel full, and more ghrelin, the one that makes you feel hungry. If you’re always hungry, maybe that’s why!
Be clear about what you want.
If you set a goal, make it one that’s specific. “I want to lose weight” or “I want to look better” doesn’t really define what you want to achieve. “I will lose 20 pounds” or I will lose three inches around my waist” is definitely specific. Give yourself a time frame and how you’re going to achieve your goal. “I’ll lose the 20 pounds by May using a healthy diet and 30 minutes of exercise a day.”
- When you start a program of exercise, put it in your calendar and make it a daily appointment. Not only will that help ensure you do it, it will become a habit and habits are hard to break.
- Focus on the successes, no matter how large or small. You’re probably going to skip a workout or eat something that isn’t healthy and sugar laden, like a big piece of cake. That doesn’t matter, just get back to the program and focus on the successes rather than the failures.
- Track your progress. If your goal is weight loss or losing inches, weigh in or take measurements once a week. For health issues, use the markers you’re trying to change, such as blood sugar levels or blood pressure. Write down the progress as you go. If there’s none, find out why.
- Start planning and cooking meals a week at a time. You’ll be less apt to stop at a fast food place when all you have to do is reheat a meal you prepared over the weekend.
