Not all weight loss measures are created equal.
Weight loss is NOT synonymous with improved health, (you can be thin and have serious metabolic health issues) and yet…
Popular culture LOVES to hyper-focus on weight loss as a measure of health.
Which is interesting when you think about it because weight loss tells you nothing about the measures someone used to lose that weight.
There are plenty of unhealthy ways you could shed a few pounds this week:
😬Take a diet pill.
😬Start smoking to suppress your appetite.
😬Catch the flu.
😬Cut off a limb.
Ok, maybe I am being a bit dramatic with those last few points, but you get my drift… not all measures are created equal.
It’s perfectly ok to want to improve your body composition AND to do it in a healthy and sustainable way, you have to use measures that are ALSO healthy and sustainable.
This means you will have to drop the extreme expectations and timelines.
It takes time to establish practices that allow you to…
- Listen to your body.
- Nourish yourself differently.
- Move more.
- Improve your sleep cycle.
- Better manage your stress.
- Show up for yourself on the regular.
- Let go of perfectionism.
- Change your beliefs around what’s possible.
You certainly can choose to keep signing up for programs that promise huge results in short time frames, but you will have to stay in a never-ending cycle of doing them over and over again.
Which works out great for the people selling those programs. Not so great for the person buying them.
Shut Out the Noise!
Skyrocket your self-trust in the health arena and beyond.
