According to an excellent article I just read from Life Extension, the reason two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese is because there is a huge disconnect between the desire to lose weight and actually doing it. We all know the absolute rock-bottom basic is to burn more calories than you take in. Well, duh! However, there are other factors that also come in to play such as hormones, sleep issues, stress, prescription medications and more.
While 84% of people say they are trying to take better care of themselves today, according to a recent survey, more than half – 59% – admit they do not have the “will power” to effectively change their habits. Lack of will power was found to be the number one barrier preventing Americans from living healthier lifestyles. That is a huge finding.
Many “diets” do not address this critical issue and it can be the difference between ultimately succeeding in your efforts or having to start all over again. Today’s the Day Seven Week Fitness Plan focuses on spirit and soul issues as well as the physical. You cannot effectively lose weight and get truly fit and healthy otherwise!
Your soul includes your mind (thinking), will (choices) and emotions (feelings). Your will is critical in successfully changing old behavioral patterns and creating new, healthier ones long term. You can learn how to detox, nourish, exercise and reboot your will and overcome the #1 barrier to successful weight loss.
