The Secret to Losing Weight and Improving Health
Attention: Mister and Missus America and all ships at sea:
Head Line: Weight is Lost Old School Way
Dateline: Los Angles California
40% of People Who Were Trying to Lose Weight Were Successful
The American Journal of Preventive Medicine published a study, Successful Weight Loss Among Obese U.S. Adults, April, 2012 that concluded:
- 2/3 of Americans, who are overweight, try to lose weight.
- Of them, 40% are successful, at least in the short term.”
How? … The “old school way” – by eating less, exercising more and switching to a more healthful diet.
- Of the successful dieters: 65% ate less food, 44% ate less fat, 41% switched to food with fewer calories; 4% took medicine prescribed by a doctor.
- Of the unsuccessful dieters: 41% drank more water, 14% ate “diet foods or products”, 10% used nonprescription diet pills, or herbal remedies, 7% adopted a “liquid diet formula”.
The secret to losing weight and improving health isn’t such a big secret - after all. Well, thank you for rehashing that old tome.
Eating less and exercising more
has been the “solution” for weight gain for, at least, the past 50 years
and it hasn’t worked yet!
The rate obesity and being overweight is growing – almost exponentially - for adults and children, alike .
Why? The two qualifiers contained in this study tells it all:
- …switched to a more healthful diet
- …at least, in the short term. You know what happens, after.
Returning to the habit of eating “stuff”, instead of “things”
dooms people to a fate of being fat, tired and sick.
“Things” are food that have a proper name. Tomato, for example, is a thing.
“Stuff” is a brand or vernacular name. Katsup, for example, is stuff. Wheat? – Thing; Flour? – Stuff; Potato? – Thing; French Fries? – Stuff; Home Cooked Meal? – Thing; Take out? – Stuff.
How Can You Recognize the Difference?
- Comes in a box, bag or can
- Advertised on and in various media, depending on the target audience, featuring some sort of mascot, model or spokesperson
- Has a trademark
- Occupy most of the selves in the Supermarket
- Contain: white flour, table salt, sugar (table and of course: high fructose fruit juice, tropical fruit and corn syrup), starchy grains and starch, underground vegetables.
- Eating mostly “things” will produce health and weight loss.
- Eating mostly “stuff” will produce unhealth (Is that even a word?) and weight gain.
- Regardless of what you hear or read, or what the label says, “stuff” is not a “thing”.
- If your objective is: to lose weight, or to protect your health, or improve your health, you need to be consuming more “things” than “stuff”.
- Supplements are “things” that fill the gap in your diet, when you can’t or won’t eat enough “things”
- Supplement are not “stuff” to take when you experience the effects of eating too much “stuff”.
Many, if not most, of the weight and health challenges you will face can be traced back to one diagnosis: “Hand to Mouth Disease”.
Your choices really do have consequences. Choosing to follow you conscience and implementing the Goldilocks Paradigm will go a long way toward resolving your dilemma with your weight and your inevitable issues of declining health.
Adding supplements, like the ones available from NUPRO, can go a long way to filling any long standing nutritional deficiencies that are contributing to your circumstances.
And, once you’re back on track, supplements, especially nutriceutical supplements like NUPRO holistic supplements, can help fill the few gaps left in your diet of mostly things. In the end, who expects to be sick? Anybody?
