Speed Up Your Weight Loss With Herbs And Spices

I suspect however that you might be surprised at the considerable health benefits

hat can also be gained by using them. In saying this I am referring to those everyday

items that can be found in

most larders, and not necessarily those exotic and probably not so well known varieties.

I happened to discover the many benefits of herbs and spices and the fact that they

can be most beneficial to a weight loss program, when I was doing extremely detailed

research for my latest book.

The results of that research were so extensive, that it could be the basis in itself for

a complete publication, and much more detailed therefore, than I could possibly

include in this short article.

However I have been able to include a fair amount of information below about various

herbs and spices which are known to particularly help to speed up weight loss, and

that is also in addition to their excellent overall health benefits by the way.

You should find that you will be able to purchase these herbs from any good

Herbalist supplier.

Garcinia: (Garcinia cambogia) is a herb which is sold primarily for enhancing weight

loss and boosting the amount of lean muscle. This is also known as hila or brindell

berry. One of the major benfits of Garcinia is that it acts as an appetite suppressant

and stops the body from storing fat.

Pysillium: (Plantago spp.) This cheeky little herb has quite a few health benefits.

hysillium is known to help lower cholesterol, and another major benefit is that it

also helps to
prevent constipation. If you use it as part of your weight loss program, it can help

you to eat less calories and yet still feel really full.

This is because of the amount of fiber that it contains.

I mentioned earlier that it does help in preventing constipation, but in order to

achieve this you should make sure that you drink plenty of water.

Siberian Gingsing: (Eleutherococcus senticosus) If you are going to start regular

exercise as part of your health and weight loss routine, which is normally to be

highly recommended, then this is a really useful herb.

It can help your body adapt to the stress of unaccustomed changes, and it will

help to make you feel less tired even when you are doing simple exercises like

walking for example.

So in turn therefore you are more likely to stick to your exercise routine.

Little Known Secrets In Your Larder

Cayenne: (also known as Capsicum, hot pepper, chilli pepper, tabasco pepper).

The majority of us have cayenne in our larders, and it is very commonly used in

many food dishes. Cayenne can be found in many forms such as ground spices,

teas, and would you believe it, topical creams.

It is well known for its antitoxidant action, and greatly helps with osteoathritis and

rhumatoid athritis, shingles, and diabetic neuropathy.

A note of caution however: Cayenne may act with anticoagulant drugs so be sure

to consult with your doctor. Excessive use may also irritate the intestinal tract.

Manufactured topical capsacin creams can cause a burning sensation, so test first

on a small area of the skin, remembering to wash hands thoroughly after applying

the cream. This will avoid it spreading to the eyes nose or other sensitive areas.

Fennel: is native to the Mediterranean and is widely utilized throughout the world.

You will find it in teas, capsules, tinctures and lozenges. Fennel can be used to help

with bloating, flatulence, mild digestive spasms, catarrh, and coughs. It also has

antimicrobal, antispadmodic, and anti inflammatory properties.

A note of caution here: Fennel can sometimes cause rare allergic skin and respiratory

tract reactions. Fennel is also a potential source of synthetic oestrogens and should

be avoided if you are pregnant.

Garlic: you can buy this fresh, or the one you will most probably have in your larder

will be dried. The downside of garlic is the odour which it leaves on your breath,

but chewing some

parsley after eating will soon sort out that problem.

Garlic is also known to help stimulate the immune system,and to help in fighting

cancer. Well documented health benefits include lowering cholesterol, fighting

infections, and reducing blood

Again a note of caution: garlic may also interact with anticoaglant drugs, so do

be sure to check with your doctor if in any doubt. Rare cases of allergic reactions

are known, and some people might possibly experience heartburn or even flatulence.

These are just a few of the herbs you can use in cooking, but do remember that

here are many many more, and the benefits in using them frequently can be quite


You will realize of course that when using them as part of any dish to use them s

sparingly, as to add too much would just spoil the meal.

As with everything in life one should try and strike a balance, after all you know

what they say “all things in moderation”.Title:

Change What You Crave By Changing How You Think: The 5 Step Mental Method

Are cravings controlling your eating habits? Well, they don’t have to anymore.

Cravings are overated. Learn how to use your mind to change what you crave.

You will lose weight.

Diet Programs, natural weight loss, easy weight loss, help losing weight, health

weight loss diet, weight loss help, best weight loss program, weight loss motivation,

diets that work

If I were to ask you which foods temp you, most likely they wouldn’t be ones that are

very healthy. I bet they would be ice cream, potato chips, pizza, or something along

those lines. In fact, in your mind right now as you’re reading, you are probably

thinking about a food that isn’t healthy. Well, aren’t you? Stop for a moment and think

about it……………….. The point I’m going to make in this article is that you can change

what you crave by changing how you think.

Every new client that comes to my office for weight-loss has a “craving problem.” But

I don’t see it as a problem at all. I see it as a solution. Cravings are over-rated. They

are hodge-podge and we don’t have to be controlled by them. We don’t have to

feel temped by ice cream, cookies or 20-ounce prime ribs. Instead, we can be

tempted by watermelon, pineapple, oranges or apples; foods like that. Think that

sounds crazy? Well it isn’t and you’ll see why.

When I first sit down and talk with a client about their eating habits, I gather

everything I need to know about exactly what they eat and how they eat. The

culprit to their weight problem always boils down to snacking, picking, eating

foods that are unhealthy or just plain over-eating. Then I’ll ask them what fruits

and vegetables they like. I’m yet to come across someone who hates fruit or

hates every vegetable under the sun. Finally I’ll ask them how often they eat

fruits or vegetables and it’s always a lot less often than the unhealthy stuff.

After I’ve gathered my arsenal of information, we do our thing. I’ll have my clients

lay back in my recliner and close their eyes. I’ll direct their mind to a peaceful

place, and within minutes they’ll be relaxed like never before. Then I start

talking about their favorite fruits and vegetables. I’ll ask them to imagine

taking a bite of their favorite juicy, ripe fruit and to feel the juices tickling their

taste buds. I’ll say to their mind, “from now on anytime you have a craving for

food, you will think of a juicy, ripe piece of fruit. And bingo!!! Next thing you

know these are exactly the kinds of foods they start desiring. Why? Because

anytime you close your eyes and bring yourself to a calm, relaxed place, your

subconscious mind emerges, and it is this part of the mind that controls what

you crave. Change your thoughts and you’ll change what you crave. Simple.

Let’s look at this from another perspective. Let’s say pineapple is your favorite

fruit. Now, if you were sitting with me right now and I gave you a juicy chunk

of it, you would enjoy it thoroughly. And you’d want more, right? Of course. Now,

let’s say I reached into my refrigerator, whipped-out a piece of chocolate cake

and said, “choose one.” Most likely you would opt for the pineapple because you

just had a teaser-piece, which would make your mind want more. The fact of the

matter is this: you enjoy your favorite fruits just as much as you enjoy your

favorite junk foods, you just believe otherwise.

Again, cravings are over-rated. The mere mention of that devilish word always

seems to conjures-up images of high calorie, high fat foods only because these

are the foods you are most exposed to in our media driven world. Your

subconscious gets accustomed to this and just doesn’t know any better. Change

your minds images and you’ll change your cravings. Here’s a quick 5 minute

mental exercise you can begin doing now to help you start changing the way

you crave food.

Step 1: Find a comfortable, quiet place where there are no distractions. Begin

breathing deeply until you are quite relaxed. Next, count backwards from 10-1,

slowly. With each count, imagine that your mind is drifting deeper and deeper.

Step 2: After you have finished counting, imagine that you are relaxing by yourself

in your favorite place. A secluded beach or a log in the woods will do the trick.

Imagine yourself feeling so very relaxed and peaceful.

Step 3: Next, imagine a basket full of your favorite fresh picked fruit sitting right

next to you. See it clearly in your mind, the color, the feel, everything about that

fruit. Imagine taking a bite of that juicy fruit and enjoying it like never before.

Step 4: Repeat the following suggestion to yourself 10 times: “From now on,

anytime I think of eating, I immediately feel a craving for fruit.”

Step 5: Count from 1 to 5, slowly, and when you reach 5 open your eyes.


You Are Not Doomed To Be Fat Forever

Once you stop dieting and start listening to your body it is easy and natural

to live at your own perfect, normal weight.

undieting, weight loss, women, dieting, body image, intuitive eating, health

I know, you’re probably thinking you have to diet to lose weight. But nothing

could be further from the truth. With rare exceptions, most people were born

into normal weight bodies. But then we learned to diet.YOUR TUMMY FAT COULD BE KILLING YOU DIET NOW

Dieting causes the body to go into survival mode. Dieting itself sparks the intense

biological urge to consume large quantities of high calorie foods. It causes the body’s

instinctual drives to override all intellectual controls. It primes the body to maximize

food intake and minimize energy burned.

Diets have set us up to fight against our own physical survival, the body’s most basic


As a comparison, think of how difficult life would be if you had to go to the bathroom

on a rigid schedule. What if you only allowed yourself to urinate 3 times a day?

At 8 a.m., noon, and 6 p.m. you could release exactly 5 ounces. You’d measure it – of

course – to be sure it was the right amount. If you needed to go more, you would

force yourself to wait until the next scheduled time. And too bad if you needed to go

at 10 am, hold it until noon.WHAT ARE THE 5 FOODS THAT BURN BELLY FAT?

You would be miserable. Your body would have a very difficult time complying with

an arbitrary schedule. It would probably get ugly.

Overeating because your body refuses to starve doesn’t make you a failure. It

means you’re human.

*It doesn’t make you diseased.

*It doesn’t mean you are flawed forever.

*It doesn’t doom you to being permanently sick and trying to recover for the rest

of your life.

*It means you did the best you could at the time.

*It means you can forgive yourself and move on.

Eating is the most natural thing we do and your body knows exactly what it needs to

live at it’s very best. All you have to do is practice listening and ACT on the information.

Your body knows what to do. Just as it knows how to breathe, reproduce, and heal.

Think of how children live, we can learn a lot from them…

*They rest when they are tired.

*They run, jump, swim, dance, and play as much as they can because it feels good and it’s


*They are picky about what they eat. They’ll go hungry rather than settle for something

they don’t love.

*They eat when they’re hungry.

*Once they feel full, they have to be tricked or bribed into eating even one more bite of food.

*They drink when they’re thirsty.

*They love their bodies and they don’t care how their thighs look or if their tummy isn’t

flat and tight.

*They don’t have to think about all this. It just comes naturally and easily as a part of being


All of these natural instincts live in each of us, too.

We all have the inborn ability to take care of ourselves. We just have to remember. We

just have to get back in the habit of listening to our bodies…of following their wisdom.

Remember, a normal body weight is your birthright. It was stolen from you. Now you get

to take it back.

So stop thinking of yourself as forever fat. You are not doomed to either being overweight

or to being on a perpetual diet. Let overeating and overweight fade into the past. They

served you well to keep you alive. Once you stop dieting and accept the body you were b

orn with, you can return to your unique, normal weight.

I’m not suggesting everyone is going to be model-skinny. The endless, tyrannical pressure

to be very thin is a big part of the problem. Some bodies are meant to be soft and curvy

. Others are naturally sharp and angular. We are variously stocky, tall, fleshy, muscular,

sinewy, short, etc. There is wonderful beauty in diversity.EATING HEATLIER MEANS YOU LOVE YOUR SELF

Accepting and loving the unique beauty of your body will heal you and set you free. Be

like a child and delight in the body you have. Cherish the power in your muscles. Enjoy

he feeling of being alive here on this planet. Let go of having to look a certain way. Be

yourself. Let someone else try to be like the models or celebrities. The world will be a

better place if it gets to have the real, unique, special person that YOU are.

Believe in your own healing. Believe that you can live easily and naturally at your own

ideal weight. That faith is a huge part of what will set you free. Eating normally is

completely natural. Deep down you know how to do it.Title:

You’ve lost the Weight, but how clean are you on the inside where it Counts?

Everyone wants to be slim and toned, but most people are unaware or are just negligent

to the importance of being clean on the inside as well, that should be of the most importance.

Weight loss, Diet, health, fitness,

In today’s age and world, being slim, shapely, possessing ripped abdominal muscles and

toned arms seems to be the aim of a vast majority of the people you see spending tons

of hours working out at gyms.OF GREAT CONCERN WHAT’S IN WHAT YOU EAT

These same people spend loads of money on the new weight-loss pill or supplement

guaranteed to ‘make you eat less and increase your metabolism…’ and in spite of

whatever side effects the product may contain, the average Joe, still thinks this quick fix

will be worth the risk.

In truth, some of these people have luck with these efforts, and yes they possess the

ever so ripped and toned muscles we as a society admire so much. However, the fact

that needs to be accepted and pondered upon thoroughly is: ‘Whatever is not built

on a proper foundation will eventually crumble!’

Most fitness experts and bodybuilders atrophy and wear down prematurely as sooner

or later, these muscles ‘blown up’ with unnatural substances have a tendency to

pretty much deflate. Moreover, ‘ripped’ muscles and supposed ‘feats’ of strength

DO NOT depict proper and optimal health.

There is a saying that is known to every culture which goes:” you are what you eat…” What

you eat plays arguably the most important role on your overall health and fitness,

thus PROPER DIET should be the most important factor of any and every health seeker.

What then should one eat? In a nut-shell: yes as boring as it may sound- Fruits and


These substances possess the abilities to not only provide the necessary fuel needed

for day to day activities, but play important and vital roles in

1. Providing the alkaline reserves in the body for balancing chemical metabolism within.

2. Cleansing the digestive and excretory tract as they act as the much needed intestinal

broom to sweep these ‘pipes’ (as you may call them) clean to function properly in

their duties of nourishing and cleansing the body.

3. Keeping the body fit, trim and in shape WITHOUT the unwanted side effects of toxic

and artificial substances such as pills and supplements.

Sure, it is a great feeling to be able to see the awesome cuts in your ‘abs’ and arms

When you look in the mirror, but feeling good on the inside as well and knowing that

you are thoroughly cleansed internally should be of just as much importance

as ‘getting ripped’.

As I stated in one of my previous articles, a quick and sure-fire method of attaining

internal cleanliness and the added bonus of healthy weight-loss will be to undergo a fast.

There are several methods of this tried and true method of healing and although it is

covered to a degree in the free resources section of my website, you can always do some

research on this radical; yet extremely effective method of internal purification and

weight loss.

In conclusion, the cleaner you are on the inside and the freer you are of toxicity the

quicker you can and will attain your goal of being in shape.CRUNCHES IT’S TIME TO BURN EVEN MORE CALORIES

Try these great ways to get rid of that stubborn fat!

stubborn fat, weight loss, exercise, diet, metabolism, fat

Eat less … lose weight?!? Here’s the other stuff you can do to get leaner.

1) Don’t diet to extremes. Reducing calories by 15-20% a day will almost exclusively

burn fat while larger cuts in calories will burn a combo of muscle tissue and fat.

Muscle drives the metabolism – calorie burning. If you’re currently eating 3000 calories,

reduce to 2400-2550, but do so according to smart guidelines like those laid out in

The Living Health Weight Loss Audio.

2) Graze all day. Professional athletes and models eat all day long yet keep their total

calories under control. The grazing method, 5-6 small meals, elevates the metabolism.

Each time you eat, the metabolism increases, and over a 6-10 week period, that increase

can parlay into another 2-3 pounds of fat loss.

3) Increase Protein. Carbs, protein and fat – are equal in their efficiency to be stored

as body fat, but protein exerts a greater metabolic boosting effect than carbs or dietary

fat. When calories drop, protein saves muscle which helps keep the metabolism elevated.

Aim for 1.2 grams per pound of bodyweight daily.

4) Play with Carbs. Carbs help retain metabolic boosting muscle yet they can stimulate

fat storage. Following a modified low carb diet – staggering your carbohydrate intake is

one of the most effective ways to jump start your
metabolism and to burn stubborn fat fast (as outlined in Maximize Your Metabolism and

the Living Health Audio Program.)

5) Go Backward. One reason fat loss comes to a halt; the body downgrades its metabolism

to meet its dwindling intake of calories. The solution: dramatically increase your calorie

intake once every 2-3 weeks. The one day splurge “re-sets” the metabolism by restoring

thyroid levels, the calorie burning hormone that declines with dieting.

6) Skip the Late Night Carbs. Carbs eaten before bedtime are more likely to be stored as

body fat so focus on lean proteins and fiber based vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and

salad fixings. The lone exception: if you train late at night and your goal is to build muscle

mass, you’ll need the carbs to replenish glycogen and support growth.

7) Go Fish. When calories are controlled, the inclusion of omega-3 fatty acids found in

salmon, trout and sardines may promote speedier fat loss. One study revealed dieters

who ate fish on a daily basis lost more weight than those who ate fish just once a

week (Am Journ Clin Nutr 70:817-825, 1999)

8) Go Spicy. Red peppers, the spicy ingredient in Mexican and Indian dishes contains

Capsaicin which can increase the metabolic rate by effecting the Sympathetic Branch

of the Nervous system. Spiking your chicken dishes with red might be a small benefit

or you can gulp 5 to 10 encapsulated grams of Capsaicin from your local health food s

tore. (Journal of Nutrition 116:1272-1278, 1986.)

9) Don’t Be Cardio Crazy! Radically reducing calories slows the metabolism short

circuiting fat loss. Same is true with radical caloric expenditure. You know: 2 cardio

sessions a day. Excess cardio slows the metabolism, promotes a loss in muscle and

even can lower testosterone levels. For real results, stick to 4-6 sessions a week, 30 – 45

minutes at a clip and maintain a high level of intensity.

10) Separate Cardio From Weight Training. What happens when you do cardio first

and follow it up with weight training? You don’t build as much muscle density. How

bout cardio after training? You risk overtraining and the negative hormonal milieu that

can stifle the metabolic rate. The best scenario; hit the cardio in the morning – on an

empty stomach – get in a few meals and return to the gym later in the day to build

muscle density.

11) Serotonin Control. Serotonin is a brain chemical that helps controls hunger. Guess

what? It can take a nose dive with dieting. ( R.J. Wurtman and J.J. Wurtman, “Brain serotonin,

carbohydrate-craving, obesity, and depression.” Advances in Experimental Medicine and

Biology 398 (1996): 35-41.) One way to prevent a drop; smaller, more frequent meals.

12) Garlic Chicken! Mother Earth’s flavor enhancer stimulates adrenaline and uncoupling

proteins (UCP). Adrenaline triggers fat breakdown and UCP, located in metabolically active

“brown fat”, increase calorie burning. Garlic also controls cortisol levels which can supports

muscle retention while dieting. For best results use fresh raw garlic in your salads or on

your other meals, but if you can’t handle raw garlic then use fresh bulbs in you cooking

or give supplements a try. (Oi Y, et al., Allyl-containing sulfides in garlic increase

uncoupling protein content in brown adipose tissue, and noradenaline and adrenaline

secretion in rats. J Nutr 129:336-342,1999.) (Wang HX, Et al., Natural products with

hypoglycemic, hypotensive, hypocholesterolemic, antiatherosclerotic and antithrombotic a

ctivities. Life Sci 65:2663-2677,1999.)

13) Sip Green Tea. Green tea contains caffeine and polyphenols called epilgallocatechin

gallate which have been shown to increase calorie burning. These special calorie burning

compounds help burn an extra 100 or-so calories a day, about equal to a brisk walk. I

n maximizing fat loss, every calorie counts. (Dullo, A.G., et al., Efficiency of a green tea

extract rich in catechin polyphenols and caffeine in increasing 24-h energy expenditure and

fat oxidation in humans. Am J Clin Nutr, 1999. 70(6):p.1040-5.)

14) Fat? Yes Fat! To rip up, you have to eat fewer carbs, but on occasion – say once a week –

you can add a little healthy fat, 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil, some red meat, walnuts or

cashews. The reason? Dietary fat can make the body more effective in using and burning

fat – as long as calories and carbs remain under control. (Thomas CD et al. Nutrient Balance

and Energy Expenditure During the Ad Libitum Feeding of High Fat and High Carbohydrate

Diets in Humans. Am J Clin Nutr 1992;55:934)

15) Thyroid Support. Irony of Ironies. When you eat less and try to dump body fat, a lot of

times the metabolism adapts and burns quite a bit fewer calories. One way to get around

the slowdown is with phosphates. A combo of 537 mgs of calcium phosphate, 107 mgs of

potassium phosphate and 25 mgs of sodium phosphate given to strict dieters yielded a 1

2-19% more elevated metabolism than dieters who did not use phosphates.

16) Write It Down. This one seems simple, but it’s one of the most overlooked tips in shedding

fat. Dieters who record what they eat, meal by meal, day by day, not only make better choices,

but cheat less and eat fewer total calories. Writing it down “keeps you honest” and is a tool for

reminding you that getting lean is a day by day process.

2. Make your breakfast omelette with four egg whites plus 1/4 cup egg substitute.

Replace regular bacon with Canadian bacon to save even more calories.

3. Switch from whole milk to nonfat or lowfat milk. Use sugar substitute instead of sugar

in your morning coffee or latte.

4. At lunch, use mustard instead of mayonnaise on your sandwich to save 100 calories

(per tablespoon) . Eliminate the cheese and save 100 more calories.

5. Instead of a Big Mac and large fries, go for a plain hamburger and a small french

fry and save a whopping 590 calories!

6. Don’t eat potato chips at snack time. Have an apple instead for less calories plus the

added benefit of more fiber.

7. Substitute diet cola or iced tea for your usual soda. You’ll save 150-200 calories per drink.

8. Eat every two to three hours with smaller portions. Don’t skip breakfast! Eating small

, frequent meals keeps blood glucose levels stable and minimizes the impulse to overeat.

9. Eat more healthy snacks like dried fruits and nuts, fresh fruits, cut up veggies or yogurt.

10. Substitute whole grain foods for white bread, rice and cereals. You will not only cut fat

and calories, but whole grains have been proven to reduce the risk of colon cancer by

increasing the fiber that your body needs.

11. Saute meat, chicken and vegetables in broth instead of butter. And speaking of butter:

replace it with nonfat sour cream on baked potatoes.

12. Instead of Caesar salad, substitute a dinner salad with nonfat salad dressing.

13. Do you love pasta? Have spaghetti with marinara sauce instead of fettuccini with Alfredo

sauce. You’ll save at least 500 calories!

14. When you’re going out with friends, watch your alcohol intake. Instead of using Coke

or Seven-Up with your drinks, choose tonic water or seltzer.

15. Restaurants are notorious for their huge serving sizes. Eat only half of your dinner and

save the rest for lunch tomorrow. Or simply share the meal with a friend.

16. Get moving. Walk to the store instead of driving. Walking is the best exercise you can

do to lose weight.

17. Get more walking time by replacing coffee breaks with exercise breaks. Also use half

of your lunch break to take a brisk walk with a co-worker.

18. Swim, swim, swim. By swimming for just an hour you can burn 500 calories. You’ll also

end up with a firmer, more toned body.

You don’t have to go on a strict diet to lose weight. Change to more sensible eating habits

and start moving your body by walking, swimming or bicycle riding. You’ll be rewarded

by good health and a fit body.

If you are carrying around a few (I use that term loosely) extra pounds like most

of us are, you all know all the reasons why we should take the weight off. It will

educe stress on our heart, reducing the chance of heart disease, cancer, possibility

of diabetes; feel better, look more attractive, etc.

There are 101 reasons why, but it can be a real pain to finally get that weight off.

You push really hard, make a little progress, get side tracked, and bam you are

heavier then you started.

It’s maddening. Enough with that hassle, I have put together 5 simple steps to

actually losing weight and keeping it off. These steps can be applied to anything

but we are focusing on weight loss here.

1. Know What You Want
2. Know Where You Are
3. Track Your Results
4. Make Course Corrections
5. Being held Accountable

Now all your extra weight will effortlessly melt off. Yeah right! A simple list of 5

items is not going to do it, so let me explain the intricacies of the 5 items and

where the hang up normally occurs when applied to losing weight.

1. Know What You Want

This one is dead simple. Most people that want to lose weight have an idea of how

many pounds they would like to lose or how they would like their body to look.

I think we can safely say if your body started looking the way you wanted it, you would

know, even if you didn’t have it completely mapped out and detailed.

2. Know Where You Are

This is the big trip up. It is almost always overlooked and is the number one reason for

the up and down Yo Yo effect we experience with losing weight. We are unhappy with

how our body feels and how it looks and it is painful to zoom in and get an accurate

picture of where we are. Unfortunately, we have to know where we are, to be able to

accurately judge the results we are getting.

You are on a trip to San Diego, California. You would like to start your trip from Phoenix

Arizona, but you really don’t know where you are. No problem. You get an Arizona

California map and find that a simple 6 hours trip west on interstate 8 will get you to

San Diego.

6 hours later, you have no clue where you are and it is definitely not warm San Diego.

You feel defeated and you want to give up! Do you blame the car? The stupid maps?

San Diego? Yourself?

Now what if I told you, you were actually in New Your City, not Phoenix, Arizona. A 6

hour car ride west from New York City will never get you to San Diego.

If you took the time to accurately find out where you were, you would have been able

to choose the appropriate means to get to San Diego and have an expectation as to

how long it would take.

This is the same with weight loss and our personal physical condition. In our minds

we think we are starting in a different physical condition then we really are. When

the results don’t follow the illusion in your mind, we get upset.

3. Track Your Results

This is conceptually simple. If we have no clue as to WHAT we are doing, how do

we know what is working? It might be a simple to do, but is also simple not to do

. In the end, most people never track their results.

4. Make Course Corrections

We love to do this one. We have it hands down. It is like step 1 of knowing what

you want. We try the new food diet, the super sit up machine, and the cardio hip

hop power energy yoga fat burner class.

We might be great at switching it up, but without knowing where we are starting

from and a history of tracked results, we have no clue as to what we should

change or even which direction we should go.

5. Being held Accountable

No, not accountability! That is an evil word. I don’t want someone to know what

I am doing, or more importantly what I am not doing.

So, why do we resist accountability, your secret weapon to weight loss? Because

it works! If you know someone is going to be watching, you would follow through

or at least feel very uncomfortable not following through.

Accountability when used wisely is the ultimate turbo booster to your weight loss.

Since you are going to be accountable anyway, you might as well get something

out of it.

Using accountability up front, you can achieve the body of your dreams. If you let

your body hold you accountable, it will throw on fat in places you don’t want it to be.

The biggest obstacle to weight loss is not taking any action. It doesn’t matter how

good the plan is, it is worthless if you don’t follow it. So what do I do now?

First and foremost get Accountable.

Forward this article to someone you respect and care about and tell them I want to

be accountable to finally taking off my extra pounds. When they agree to support

you, start working through Steps 1 – 5.
