Wishing for that magic bullet? Weight-loss can be a struggle. You want to feel like you’re doing something good for your body, but not feel challenged or deprived. There has been so much written about weight-loss, but there has yet to be a program or pill that works universally. There are a multitude of claims online; “lose weight quickly while never feeling hungry,” or “drink this magic elixir it will help lower blood sugar, cholesterol, and help with weight loss.” The program, the price, the emotional components, the ease of implementation, and the support are all integral aspects to healthy weight loss. It’s important that the program works for you, with support and guidance during those inevitable hurdles.
It is hard to have a fulfilling life, with family and friends, when the challenge of weight-loss takes control. With so many options out on the market today, it is hard to know which to select and where to start. Let’s review some of the basic weight-loss approaches.
The Significance of Food
Food provides nutrients, which supply energy for activity, growth, and all functions of the body. It is the fuel that keeps the immune system healthy, and allows the body to grow and repair itself.
Food has cultural significance around the world. It is where people unite and share experiences. Food is the great communicator. It bridges communities and makes connections where there otherwise might have been none.
For those wanting to lose weight, the feeling of being excluded from something so critical to our daily life can be emotionally crippling. Sharing your health journey with family and friends is important to a successful lifestyle change.
