The first step to healthy weight loss is probably the best news you’ll hear all week: stop dieting. Yes, really! Don’t count kilojoules, otherwise your body will think there’s a famine, which raises stress levels and contributes to fat storage.
It’s also time to quit skipping breakfast and eating on the run. These common no-nos upset your blood sugar levels and cause you to miss out on all the important nutrients you get from a more balanced diet.
What your body really wants and needs are nutrient-dense foods rich in fibre, vitamins, minerals and nutrients: wholefoods. When you eat wholefoods, you need less food to get that ‘full’ feeling and stay satisfied longer.
At the same time, all the fibre and nutrients in wholefoods unclog your digestive system and balance out your body’s blood sugar levels. Unsurprisingly, experts agree that improved nutrition is one of the best ways to lose weight and keep it off for good.
There’s another piece to the puzzle, one that’s often overlooked. Every day we’re exposed to chemical toxins – in our food supply and in our environment. If you’re not careful, these toxins will build up in your body and can eventually undermine your digestive health.
The good news is that you can keep these toxins to a minimum with a bit of careful planning. A kitchen detox is one great way to set yourself up for a toxin-free body. With a few simple changes to your diet, lifestyle and exercise routine, you’ll soon be on your way to a lighter, healthier you.
A healthy approach to living well
Have you ever noticed that your physical, mental and emotional health are all connected? One of the most obvious examples of this is the way that stress causes body weight to fluctuate.
Looking at your symptoms in isolation won’t help you stay well. Neither will focussing on a single cause when you become ill. Ancient wisdom and modern science both tell us that a holistic, integrative approach is the best way to ensure a long and healthy life.
Too often these days we find ourselves rushed through consultations and given one-size-fits-all healthcare solutions that don’t work for us. A personal and emotionally supportive relationship with your healthcare practitioner is fundamental to the healing process.
With more than 30 years’ experience helping clients heal themselves, Marcea invites you to join her in a supportive partnership where you can work together towards a positive outcome.
