Knowing that it’s possible

You must know that losing weight is possible!  Whenever you feel that it isn’t possible remind yourself that must lose weight because you want to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
It’s time to take control and accept responsibility for yourself, because you want to do more with your life than what you are currently doing.

The smartest people are lifelong students. Always learning from those around them, never believing that they know enough. Learn what you can actually do to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Motivate yourself to find your own path. It’s about finding what works for you and choices that make you feel good both physically and emotionally that you can stick with. Keep learning what works for others and adopt what works for you.
Follow these principles and amazing things will happen. You have the power to change your life in many ways that you may not even realize. This is the beginning of the next phase of your life.

While weight loss can be challenging, it is achievable and many people are successful. I lost 91 pounds and you can do it, too.

It is never too late to reevaluate and change your lifestyle

Heart disease is the number one killer in the world, affecting more than six million people each year. heart disease has  developed into a lethal epidemic and the problem is set to continue since many people have unhealthy lifestyles. Expert agree that eating properly is one of the best ways to combat this.

Yet heart disease is potentially avoidable and preventable . If you want to beat heart disease, rethinking your lifestyle can help reduce many of the risk factors of heart disease such high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking and being overweight.

If you already have heart disease, it's never too late to reevaluate your lifestyle, and there is overwhelming evidence that changing your eating habits can save your life.

I changed what I eat and it worked for me. For two years I have been eating healthy and I lost weight, lowered my cholesterol, and lowered blood pressure. I lowered blood pressure so much that I was able to discontinue blood pressure medication entirely.

I eat unlimited amount of fresh non-starchy vegetables, lots of fresh low-sugar fruits lean protein (lean turkey breast, skinless chicken breast, fish). whole grain bread, and healthy fats (daily Omega 3 supplement daily). I also take multivitamin supplement once a day. I drink hot tea (no milk, no sugar) three times a day and lots of water.

No single approach, formula, or plan for weight loss can work perfectly for every person. The eating method I describe below worked for me. I have lost weight, and most importantly, have kept it off.

You may want to look at what worked for me and then adopt it to your unique circumstances, lifestyle, likes and dislikes.

It is hard not to eat when you get hungry

Hunger is the most significant problem with weight loss and a diet that results in hunger will never be successful. It is hard not to eat when you get hungry. It goes against human nature and you can only stand being hungry for so long.

The feeling of an empty stomach is very difficult, if not impossible, to tolerate and at some point you give in. When you get very hungry, you tend to want to eat more.

Feeling hungry the hardest part of losing weight. If your weight loss strategy involves going hungry, it is unsustainable.
You don’t have to go hungry in order to lose weight.  In order to feel full, you need to fill your stomach.  The key is in knowing which foods to fill it with.
Most people are satisfied by the amount (i.e. volume) of food they eat rather than the calories in said food.
I consume a low number of calories, but get all the fullness and satisfaction. Eating large amount of the right food to fill up my stomach and avoid feeling of hunger is my key to success.
