How to beat the CRAVINGS and win!
Brought to you by The American Health Coach
What do you suppose is the main reason that people gain weight and end up with a body they don’t want?
The answer: their food choices! It’s not overeating, not calories or even the lack of activity. Now, these do play a role but, they are not the main reason. The foods we eat, in large part, dictate the foods we want to eat and the foods we crave. High carbohydrate diets cause you to crave carbs. This is why we have self-professed chocoholics. It is hard to eat the right food when you are constantly fighting powerful biological cravings. It becomes a battle of will power and eventually you will be to tired and broken down to fight.
There are countless diets and misinformation with regard to weight loss and fitness. There are things you have learned, concepts and beliefs that are preventing you from reaching your goals. These same concepts and beliefs are the reasons why you may have failed in the past. Losing weight and getting healthy isn’t about counting calories, gyms, trainers, exercise, avoiding fats or starving. It is about learning which foods help you to feel full, which foods burn more calories, increase your metabolism, and which ones shut off the fat storage. It’s about learning the simple tricks that will promote lasting health and happiness.
