Weight Loss - Are You Insane?

The definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.
In the case of weight loss there are definitely some insane people out there.  They try the same type of diet over and over again but expect this time to be different.  Something's gotta change.  When most people try and lose weight they either focus on diet or exercise. But fail to address the cause of the weight  issue.... our emotional health.  It's the biggest weight loss secret out there.

You don't lose weight by restricting your food or exercising for hours a day.  Well, let me rephrase that... you can lose weight, but you won't keep it off  because you can't keep with that restrictive diet or that kind of exercise program for long.  And what happens when that diet or exercise program is over?   You get back to your old habits and gain all the weight back, plus some.   Only by addressing  your emotional health and taking care of you mental and spiritual wellbeing will you lose weight and keep it off.

Think of it like this...  Weight, is just a symptom of a much deeper issue.  Take care of yourself, get your emotional and spiritual needs met and get on a healthy eating plan (note that I didn't say diet, it shouldn't be restrictive), and be active, the weight will come off.  And even better yet, it will stay off.
