Don't Stress, Think Yourself Thin

Weight Loss has gone awry, even a health hazard. The latest craze is the dangerous vanity of the KE-Diet which uses an inserted feeding tube down the nose into the esophagus through the stomach and into the duodenum for brides who want to fit into their wedding dress in 10 days. Other fad diets have involved the starvation principle in some form, but why pay hefty prices to starve because you can do that on your own for free? Successful weight management has always been free and sustainable: Use Your Head.

All you have to do is see yourself as fit and healthy, and the rest will follow. This goal is sustainable because it is a primal force of human nature and not based on narcissism. There is no deadline (pun intended) because it is a lifelong journey. Now that you have taken the stress out of weight loss, you will feel empowered to make food and exercise choices which are right for you.

Amazingly, when it concerns weight loss, desperate people believe in myths which damage both the body and mind. One popular myth about skipping meals like breakfast slows down metabolism while holding on to fat. Another myth encourages over-exercising which usually results in joints that are pounded into submission, muscles that burn along with depression and insomnia. However, when you no longer focus on a negative body image, and redirect to a positive mindset, you feel happy about building a healthy body. Taking stress out of the equation alleviates junk food eating for the purpose of self-soothing: You have just lost your sugar cravings!

Personal trainers and exercise physiologists advise clients who want to lose weight to lose the vanity instead. Simply shifting perception to the long term goal of fit and healthy introduces balance in all activities of daily living. This redefines beauty and the human form realistically, genetically, individually and vitally. Deprivation is replaced by substance. Stress is replaced by strength.
