A Way Of Life

Herbalife products were created to help you live healthier and lose weight but Herbalife is not just a temporary fix. Once you’ve lost the weight, you want to maintain your weight and continue to feed your cells with Herbalife products, helping to ensure your success in keeping the weight off. You can have more energy and feel great!

When you get the results you wanted and you are feeling more energetic , why would you stop once you have reached your weight loss goals? You don’t start eating healthy and exercising to lose weight and once you have reached your goal suddenly stop eating all that “good for you” food and start hanging out at fast food joints do you? Of course not! You need to continue trying to eat well and exercise so that you stay at your goal weight and stay healthy!

Herbalife works the same way as any other nutritional program. The program will change a bit, you will probably change the way you take the products, but Herbalife is a way of life. Each product is specifically designed to work synergistically with the other products Herbalife offers to feed your cells the good nutrition you may have been lacking.

You don’t have to stay on the program to maintain your new weight and healthy lifestyle but it is certainly easier that way. You could lose the weight and take all you’ve learned about health and nutrition and apply it to your daily intake of food but you can not go back to eating the very way that made you gain weight in the first place and that would apply no matter what weight loss plan you choose.

Herbalife products work for you, but only if your ready to really give it your all. It’s that time of the year, summer’s here, look great and get into that swim suit before the cold months arrive!

Emotional Eating

Saturday, June 8th, 2013

 

 

helppillsnutiritonWhat is emotional eating? Emotional eating is something that happens to almost everyone at some time or another in life. Everyone, both male and female have at one point or another, felt sad or angry or anxious and reached or a plate of cookies or maybe it was pasta.

Whatever the food you probably know what I’m talking about. It happens to everyone. There are, however, some who do this on a daily basis. The trouble with emotional eating is that it may show up on the scale but it begins in the mind. Stress takes its toll on your life. When your defenses are compromised your health takes a hit and so do your emotions.

Everyone has good days and bad days. How we address the bad ones can cause an emotional roller coaster within that causes us to eat to avoid the pain. You look for comfort from your pain. People who turn to food to find comfort find a coping mechanism that seems to make them feel better.

That is the main problem and what makes this method of “dealing so much a problem is that eating pleasurable foods can stimulate the release of endorphins just like exercise. So, after you eat, you feel better.
But, how do you know you are using food in this way?

The first sign is obvious. You will gain weight if you eat too much. In light of the weight gain, examine other areas of your life:

* Have you been under stress lately at work or at home?

* Are the people in your life supportive of you and what you do?

* Has anything traumatic happened in the last year?

* Do you eat when you are not necessarily hungry but more when you are stressed, sad or anxious?

Answering “yes” to any of these questions could mean that you are an emotional eater. The foods that you choose are what we term “comfort foods”:

* High fat foods like French fries, fried foods

* High carb foods like pasta, rice or mashed potatoes

* Sugary foods like cookies, ice cream, cake, donuts and candy

Recognizing that you may have a problem is the first step to conquering it. At first, you may have to alternate your foods because cutting them out altogether may not work, when you notice yourself reaching for that treat that you really don’t need, try to get a glass of water or some carrot sticks. Of course its hard! You are used to a whole different way of life. But if your reading this then you obviously want to do something about it so you must try and try and try until you succeed.

Secondly, seek counseling. If the emotional issues are deep or dark you may need to seek counseling to help with the root of the problem, there is nothing wrong with this. You can not always talk to your friends or family and they are usually not trained to help you get to the base of your problem so if you think this is needed please do it. You want to be a better you and sometimes that means you need a little help from an objective, and highly trained individual to cut through to the problem before you can solve them or learn to live with them in a healthy manner.

Thirdly, many times you can rely on your friends or family. They can learn what triggers your eating habits and be on the lookout for changes in them. They can help you be aware of the foods you are eating, assist you in making healthy food choices and exercise along with you. Proper diet and exercise increases immunity, blood flow and positive thinking. Yoga enhances the mind/body connection so you don’t eat when you aren’t hungry.

If you are overweight, many times this alone can leave you feeling depressed, inadequate and cause very low self esteem and trigger emotional eating. Prior to eating you may convince yourself that you don’t care and that your over weight anyhow but immediately after you may experience a deep regret and self loathing for eating the way you just did. Our mind can play tricks on us and sometimes we are our own worst enemies when we try to justify what we are about to do. Losing weight can be an incredible self esteem booster that gets you back on track and realizing who you really are and all your meant to be.
