Secrets that provide almost magical power for weight loss success

Secrets that provide almost magical power for weight loss success

It’s a sin to be unhealthy!

You are depriving yourself of what life is really about by limiting the things you could enjoy in life at more levels that you can imagine.
“Your body has to be in top condition. Your brain deteriorates as your body does. You can’t separate body from mind.” That’s one phrase that stuck with me… So, so true.
But it’s not easy to recognise the good from the bad, the healthy from the unhealthy, considering the information provided to us by the media in commercials - partial information and other little tricks to keep us confused, with no targets in life other than being addicted to what they promote.
And let me tell you something: We are programmed, 24/7, without even knowing it. Partial information is as harmful as no information. And it makes me sad to hear or see advertising that assures people that what they buy and what they put in their body is healthy. All you have to do is take one look at the ingredients on a box or can you are about to buy, see all the names of substances one can hardly pronounce… How can that be healthy?
One very good example is yogurt. Yes, yogurt is healthy, and it’s been proven to help tremendously with weight loss. But they forget to tell you what kind is healthy.
So I'll make that my mission for the next little while.

I have a confession to make. When I first arrived on this continent from old Europe, I was in shock for a few weeks. I couldn’t understand why so many were overweight, unhealthy, and allergic. I finally got it. The very simple answer is: It’s a vicious circle.The more fast food people eat, the unhealthier they feel. The more unhealthy people feel, the more they eat. The worse the choices, the harder it becomes to make good choices.Let’s look at grocery stores, for example. You buy “something ready to eat”, pop it in the microwave, and get annoyed if it’s not ready in two minutes. I’ll tell you a little “secret”. Good, healthy food takes about 15-20 minutes to cook, but it adds quality to your life. People 40-50 years old can barely walk - that should be a wake-up call for them. Do you ever wonder what keeps that food from going bad in the refrigerator or on the shelves for one month, two months, three months? I don’t remember my mom cooking and keeping the food in the fridge for more than 2-3 days. Think about it. I sure have. Seeing so many unhealthy people and feeling so helpless forced my mind to take action. Writing this is one of my ways to reach out to as many people as I can.NR. 1 Tip for this week if your goal is weight loss- Prepare your own food as much as you can I'll have some simple recipies for you soon.Weightlossfitnesstipsfanaticweightloss tips Transylvanian Way
