How to Not Fall into the Diet Trap
Knowing how to stick to a nutrition plan, especially for men over a certain age is a big challenge. Once you decide to make a change in your life, knowing what to eat, how much of it, and what NOT to eat, it’s a huge dilemma.
Also, if you are like me, you are also challenged by not being able to eat like you used to. I know that right now I am very near the highest weight that I have ever weighed. I look in the mirror, and think to myself that I am not really eating that much differently than I did in my 20’s.
Just this week I told my doctor during a routine physical, I don’t know why I continue to gain wight like I have been in the past four (4) plus years?
I know that I watch what I eat, very few processed foods, etc., yet I continue to gain weight. I don’t sit around very often eating bon bon’s, pizza, or go out to eat and eat a whole steak with a baked-potato with all the fixings. Yet, I am gaining weight like I have been eating all those things and more!
What my doctor suggested is that as well as watching what I eat, I should also add exercise, even a little to my routine. I used to be very good at that, but with the demands of a career, it is very easy to get sidetracked. I find it very easy to say, “I will do it later”, and later never comes.
Anyway, a bit of a rant on the topic of loosing weight, or rather not being able to lose it as easy as I once could.
The video below got me to start thinking. Sure this guy may, or may not be trying to sell me something, but I do believe that he also walks the walk, as well as talk the talk. He may be onto something.
I plan to try to follow his tips, and see if I can get my eating, and dieting in check.
I am thinking that perhaps it’s one of those things where you have to surround yourself with people with the same challenges as you. Yet people who also show success by beating those challenges, and taking the next step. In my case, the next step being better health!
So, watch the video, and let me know what you think. Is he onto something?
Drop me a line in the comment section below, and let me know what you thought about the video, or if you are facing this same challenge as me, what you are doing about it? I would love to know and maybe we can help one another!
