We have to get healthy to lose weight, not lose weight to get healthy.
Our country is obsessed with dieting and working out. But despite having the most gyms, diet books, and exercise DVDs, we are one of the heaviest, sickest nations in the developed world.
Weight-loss resistance is a sign that something is going on underneath the surface. And that can rarely be solved in the long term by just another fad diet.
Research shows that calorie counting almost always fails when it comes to sustainable weight loss. We need to ditch dieting and get healthy first. Then we'll reach our goal weight and look great, by accident. It will simply be a natural by-product of radiant health.
How do we do this? Here are the four key areas — your mind, emotions, guts, and hormones — that you need to heal first in order to reach your health goals.
1. Heal your hormones.
Years of stress and poor diet can do a number on brain and hormonal health, further perpetuating hormonal dysfunctions.
2. Heal your mind to break repetitive habits.
Instead of punishing your body by restricting foods, nourish it with good food medicine.
3. Heal your relationship with your body.
Anxiety, fear, and hate are some of the most common emotions that can keep you from reaching your health goals.
4. Heal your gut.
Now we have to deal with the physical body — recovering from years of unknowingly mistreating your body.
