Overeaten and feeling bloated? fat and uncomfortable? The New Year will soon be here and you are going to make your New Year Resolutions, being healthy, going on a diet, going to the gym, eating less, eating healthily and cutting down your drinking… Well, that’s not going to really happen, is it? How many years have you said the same thing over and over and ended up with negative results as your willpower diminishes to a point of saying what the hell, I’m going to treat myself and that’s it!
Oh, and how far did you get. Lost a few pounds? Too tired to fit the gym in, working, looking after the kids and life, in general, getting in the way. Do you get a mindset of, I can lose weight later in the year when I’m going on holiday or to a special event.
New Years Resolution.
A new attitude that will work for you such as dieting, will work if you go about it in the right way. Let’s face it, you know exactly the right foods to eat to be healthy and you know the bad foods and the junk foods. You know about fat and sugars as well as taking more water and less alcohol. You know all of this, don’t you?
So why doesn’t your diet, gym or exercise work for you or it may do for a while and then you’re back to your old default settings and doing all those things that you said you wouldn’t? Willpower is a big mistake as it never works for you. Start to use your imagination. To visualise how you want to look and feel and more importantly is always remember the reason why you chose to do this…
7 Tips and Tricks.

#5 Know that you really know what are the right foods to eat.
#6 Don’t overdo anything, always leave yourself wanting more.
#7 Eat what you feel will contribute to your health & wellbeing.
#8 One extra free tip is to take action!
Food and Calories.
Cutting down on calories is fine, but did you know that calorie controlled food from shops can provide you with fewer calories. But there is no way that you can make food have fewer calories. The only way is to eat less. You cannot make a doughnut have fewer calories. If you only want half the calories, then cut the doughnut in half and only eat half.
Fewer calories in shop bought processed food is replaced with what I can only call ‘stuff’ that bulks out the food, and what this is, do we really know. Let’s face it, some of the biggest people I help to lose weight are on diet drinks and they never lose any weight.
180 Degree Turn Around.
Everyone will do a 180-degree turnaround, If you are lazy, then in the New Year you will go to the gym and exercise, if you are fat, you will stop eating, we all do the 180 degrees. This is why we fail to stick to our New Year Resolutions because of the 180-degree complete turnaround.
So What Can You Do? Stop doing the 180 and be much more subtle in your approach to your health and wellbeing. Start to make small adjustments to the way you eat that you hardly notice.
For an example, if you took two sugars in your tea, then the 180 degrees way would be to stop taking sugar and this wouldn’t be very pleasant, and so a better approach is to take one and a half sugars or one and threequarters, just enough that you really don’t notice. You can do this with all foods and of course drinking.
Exercise, going to the gym, using weights that don’t take it out of you, stretch only the amount you feel comfortable with so that you want to do it again the next day. Before you know it a month will have flown by and you will have lost weight, exercising, happier and feeling fitter all because of a subtle approach.
Your Personal Diet.
A diet has to include all aspects of your life and not just food. Your diet needs to be your health, positive thinking, what you listen to, what you watch on TV. mindful of negative thinking, staying calm, contributing to society, how you help others, your bad language, use kind words and thoughts. How you contribute to your own wellbeing and walking in nature. A diet is not just food and drink, it is your way of life. We also offer Reiki Treatment, click here to read more about our Reiki Therapy.
All of this is my opinion and I cannot be held responsible for the way you chose to interpret my words. I am not a doctor or nutritionist. You are in control of how you want to feel, be and act in this world. If you really want to lose weight you will find the right way for you, if you want to grow muscle, you will do it. In other words “take this with a pinch of salt”. Always seek medical advice when doing a change of diet or exercise.
