So often you will hear another statistic, or piece of research, that shows we are getting fatter and more unhealthy with each passing day. Why is this so? We are now more technologically advanced than ever before and we have so much more evidence to highlight the risks of eating the wrong foods. Yet we continue to get fatter.
Is it really that hard to eat the right foods? Well, for some people it is. There are so many confusing messages on the TV and other media, combined with the clever marketing strategies of food manufacturers, it’s no wonder that some people just don’t know what they should be eating.
If you think about it, there are a lot of things that are hard in life to do, and if you don’t feel like doing it, you can usually get someone in to do it for you. For instance, cutting the grass, painting the house, building a pergola, etc. But when it comes to eating the right foods, no one else can eat it for you! This is why I think people just give up and eat whatever is easiest, or just don’t bother eating properly. It’s just too hard.
If you value your health, then you will value the nutrition you put into your body. If you don’t value your health, then it will take more space than this article will allow to convince you of the importance of getting your nutrition right. Exercise will only take you so far before your body will demand quality nutrition to achieve your goals.
The key is to have a complete program that addresses all three components for success; exercise, nutrition and cardiovascular training. Of these three components, I believe that nutrition is the hardest transition for people to make and comprises about 60-70% of the results. When I tell people this they are often blown away. As I mentioned before, you can’t just rely on the exercise and hope the “body” will follow. You can do that for awhile and see some results, but without the correct nutrition, you won’t get the serious results you are looking for.
But, the prospect of having to completely revolutionise your eating plan can be very overwhelming. You may be able to do it for awhile, but after a few weeks you can slip back into old habits. Ultimately you need to come to the self-realisation of the importance of your health and how much you value living a long and healthy life. If you see the benefits, you will see that it’s worthwhile to make the change.
Remember it takes about 21 days to create a new habit, such as eating healthy, and then about 90 days for that habit to become sustainable for life. That too may sound unattainable right now, but if you break it down into smaller goals it is certainly achievable for everyone, including you!
What I find is that people really need a kick start when starting a weight loss journey and that’s why Studioz has incorporated the USANA range of vitamins, meal replacement shakes and bars as part of its weight loss program. Research has shown that people using the USANA products achieved, an average, weight loss of 4kg per month, compared to 2kg, for those that did not use the products during their exercise program.
