Weight Loss Woes
Weight loss is an issue that affects men and women alike. Children, particularly young girls, are also starting to think about weight loss at younger and younger ages. This isn't really that surprising if you take a look at all of the pressure that is put on Americans to be thin and beautiful. Ironically, for many people, it's that pressure to measure up to what they see on television and in magazines that drives them to overeat in the first place.
Weight loss is really quite simple. Our bodies require a certain amount of calories to maintain our weight. If we eat less than that amount, or burn more than that amount, we lose weight. It's that easy. But with the weight loss industry as it is, with so many confusing and controversial diet options, we often give up before we even start.
The hardest thing about losing weight, of course, is having the willpower to change your habits. Overeating is a way of life for so many people that trying to stop can result in culture shock. It's certainly not easy to swallow your turkey wrap and raw veggies while the guy next to you in the cafeteria munches on a slice of pepperoni pizza. Taking a moment to think clearly should lead you out of temptation if you are feeling those familiar cravings. Get past that need for instant gratification and think clearly about the consequences, both physical and emotional, of breaking your diet. You will surely take your gaze from the greasy grub of your co-worker and appreciate, even enjoy, the cool crunch of your celery.
Dieting doesn't have to be a chore. Actually, you can eat what you like and still cut the pounds.
