Weight loss is the number one resolution for Americans! According to the National Center for Health Statistics, heart disease is one of the leading causes of death (which is directly linked to obesity). It is therefore no wonder that each year more and more people attempt to get healthy.
With all the advertising for mouth-watering dishes joined with time-crunched schedules, resisting quick, unhealthy food can be extremely difficult.
Combine our societal influences with a new research study funded by the National Institutes of Health on dieters who struggle with emotional eating, and resolution commitment becomes harder and harder and may explain why so many people who lose weight gain it all back.
What Doesn’t Work
Many people turn to yo-yo dieting. In the long run, regular fluctuations in weight can disturb the balance of the body’s metabolism – leading to systemic confusion and a sluggish metabolism, gradually making slimming down increasingly difficult. This slower metabolism can eventually lead to weight gain, even when eating normally.
Other people follow unhealthy weight loss plans such as crash diets, prescription or over-the-counter medicine to control their appetite. Though many of these products are labeled ‘healthy’ weight loss supplements, some contain harmful stimulants that raise heart rate and have negative effects on the body. Ultimately, the regimen is unrealistic and the weight lost often returns after the product is stopped.
Natural herbal and homeopathic remedies can play a large part in helping overcome the psychological addictions associated with food, plus support a healthy metabolism and the conditions necessary for weight stabilization and balance. While any weight loss program requires a healthy mix of proper diet and exercise, herbal remedies can provide that extra boost of motivation to resist that extra cookie and stay on track.
Some final thoughts
Remember to measure personal success by your own standards, and do not compare the rate of your own achievement with the pace of others’. We all have individual goals, and any step of progress is a positive one. Also, do not get discouraged by small slip-ups or allow them to ruin or abandon your plan altogether. Make adjustments when needed, and keep up the good work!
