Walking For Weight Loss. Lose weight by walking and eating healthy.
We, as Americans, are the fattest nation in the world. There’s a reason for that. We eat all of the wrong foods and spend our time in a sedentary lifestyle that allows that food to settle into areas of our bodies where we don’t want it to be. That food is then converted into the energy that it was meant to provide, but when we don’t use that energy, it turns to fat.
The media doesn’t help us either when it comes to a healthy body image. We could be heavier than what our recommended body weight is but still be in great shape. After all, muscle weighs more than fat. But the media has us believe that all women must be a size 4 and all men should be ripped with muscles.
The reality is that body shapes are different and weight should not be our only gauge of how in shape we are. The idea is to be sure we eat healthy and take advantage of the way food is meant to work for us – not against us!
When you resolve to take off those extra pounds, your whole mindset has to change in order for you to be successful. You have to change your habits – not only your eating habits, but when you eat and how you eat.
As we’ve shown you, you can eat many foods while trying to lose weight and you don’t have to starve yourself in the process. There’s nothing you really have to sacrifice, you just have to change a little.
Instead of having flour tortillas, have wheat ones. Instead of eating 5 cookies, just eat 1. Switch to low-fat or no-fat versions of your favorite foods like cheese and sour cream and decrease your portion size to make sure you don’t overeat.
Dieting to lose weight doesn’t have to be painful or uncomfortable. It can be fulfilling and satisfying and even tasty!
Now that you have the tools you need, you can modify any of the recipes we’ve given you and create your very own foods with the “allowed” ingredients.
It’s up to you to succeed. We know you can! So here’s to your slimmer body, but most of all – a healthier YOU!
