If you don’t want to be a food marketing victim, here’s my best tips:
1. Remember you’re going to be “played.” A lot.
I know this is different than most weight loss advice, but since most people fail using big diet company “wisdom” it’s time to think outside the box.
The main reason it’s so difficult to lose weight [especially in America] is not because we’re a bunch of stupid and lazy dopes.
It’s because billions of dollars are spent to make sure we fail.
Billions are spent advertising misleading weight loss products, “health” foods that make us fat, and positioning junk foods so they are within arms reach everywhere.
The best way to stand against this mental assault is to acknowledge it -and prepare for it.
At no time of the year, is it more critical to prepare than during the Holidays.
I wish it wasn’t the case, but the number one marketing message of the next several months is to going to be this:
From alcohol to candy, you’re going to be relentlessly encouraged to make an exception, because, well, it’s “The Holidays.”
Don’t let the marketing department of some giant company write your holidays for you.
The “keep you beholden to what we’re selling world” doesn’t like it when it loses a customer, but if you want to live with not only vibrant health, but also true personal freedom, you’re going to need to, on occasion, to be able to tell that world this:
I’ve decided to take back my body and life- and I’m not going to let you play me any longer.
2. Use what you eat to your advantage.
Since it’s virtually impossible to gain weight eating protein and veggies, fill up on those first.
If you are going to hit the carbs [the macro-nutrient most readily converted to body fat] use them the way people that stay lean for a living [bodybuilders and fitness models] use them:
To provide energy for a healthy and invigorating workout.
3. If you’re going to eat sweets, eat a healthier version.
For example, whenever I have a chocolate craving [which is almost daily] I mix up a serving of chocolate casein protein and put it in the frig. In about 10 minutes it firms up and tastes just like chocolate pudding.
Result: Chocolate craving crushed – without the guilt, stress, and extra body fat.
From ice cream to truffles, to cheesecake, there’s a healthier version of every treat you can imagine.
If you’d like a little help implementing these suggestions, here’s my best resources:
For more info on short and efficient workouts that build muscle and fight aging, read fitness magazine editor Steve Holman’s article 5 Steps To Looking 10 Years Younger.
If you want to eat a lot of sweets over the holidays, but don’t want the fat storing, inflammation causing, blood sugar spiking effects from all the mass manufactured “treats” check out The Healing Gourmets Guilt Free Desserts.
I’ll be talking a lot about these solutions for some very simple reasons. They work- and because I take your health and my credibility – very seriously.
To your health and success, and may God bless,
P.S. One of the biggest reasons people give up at weight loss is mis-information, trying to succeed with a useless product that will only create a frustrating failure.
That’s not what I desire for you.
So if I tell you about something, rest assured it’s the best of the best. Those links again are here:
P.P.S. The more strong, free, and independent people there are, the better the future will be for all of us. If you want to make a difference, start with your health. Taking control of it first will give you the faith, courage, and discipline to do anything else you set your mind to.
