Just about everyone, at some point in their life, has taken a look at their health and well-being and decided some sort of diet or weight loss program would be of benefit to them. Usually, the impetus for choosing to lose weight has to do with appearance – most people feel they look better after even a modest weight loss. And while many people notice they feel better during or after a diet program, the over-arching health benefits are far more profound than you might imagine.
Weight loss, even when measured in just a few pounds, can lower your blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels. This means that a diet and exercise plan that results in lower weight among overweight or obese people will significantly reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, hypertension, stroke, and dyslipdemia (high cholesterol and triglyceride levels).
Overweight people (e.g. people who present a body mass index of 25 or greater) also run an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes, several types of cancer, liver disease, gallbladder disease, and osteoarthritis. People who are obese (who present a body mass index greater than 30) tend to suffer from sleep apnea and many related respiratory issues, as well as (among women) a variety of gynecological issues.
It’s a surprisingly long list of ailments that can be mitigated or altogether avoided by incorporating a healthy diet plan that produces real, measurable weight loss. And that’s not even including the improvements in you psychological health that come from having a healthier, more vital body; self-confidence and mental health go hand-in-hand, and success in diet and weight loss can boost your self-esteem in every other aspect of your life as well.

Whether you’re setting out to lose weight on your own or through our weight loss center, we’ve found the biggest obstacle to weight loss is often found in, as they say, that gray matter between the ears.
It may sound in many ways like a tired platitude, but establishing a positive attitude is critical to success in every endeavor — and weight loss is no different. In fact, the weight loss process is probably more easily influenced by attitude than most, in that there are more opportunities and pitfalls in weight loss programs than in other endeavors. Consider how easy it can be to consider weight loss a restrictive, minimizing lifestyle, marked by scarcity and distress; it’s all too easy to focus on those things that have been “given up” in a negative way, rather than remembering the overwhelmingly positive aspects of weight loss.
Remember, losing weight won’t happen if you think in terms of negativity — thinking you’re missing out on things you used to enjoy. It’s important to set yourself up for success not by singling out the downsides to the process, but by highlighting the upsides to the new lifestyle you’re setting out to enjoy: feeling better all the time, not just fleetingly when something passes your lips. You’re not losing anything but extra pounds — and you’re adding so much more! You’re going to start seeing what positive steps can do in terms of changes to your health and how good you feel, and that’s going to make those changes feel increasingly like the best thing you can do — and with each small measure of success, that reinforcement will help you recognize that every tiny step is in the right direction, and success looks better and better every day!

One of the worst truisms about going on a diet Egypt Lake residents can attest to is that most weight loss programs wind up being temporary fixes; in fact, when it comes to weight loss, Egypt Lake dieters follow the same trend as those in national studies that show the majority of them wind up carrying more pounds two years after a “successful” diet than they did before they started.
There are of course a variety of reasons for this, not least among them is a continuing perception among dieters that their diet is something that just represents a short period of their life when they must show restraint or discipline — after which, they reason, they can stop thinking about what they eat and how they exercise.
The truth is, of course, that choosing to eat more healthful foods and have a more active lifestyle where exercise is part of your daily routine isn’t a one-time deal; in order to keep the pounds off, dieters need to look at their weight management plan as something that will last for the rest of their life. This means that whatever plan you embark upon needs to be sustainable — not some flash in the pan diet fad that no one will be talking about in three weeks, but real, useful ideas for tracking what you eat and how much, and keeping up a level of activity that will help you stay more healthy for years to come.
Our professional diet planners can help custom-create a weight loss and weight maintenance strategy you can live with — not just this week, and not just next week, but for weeks, months and years to come. For more information, please contact us today!
There’s an old cliche that “attitude is everything,” and it’s true nowhere more profoundly than in weight loss. When they first set out to lose weight, Holiday clients tell us they had a sense that if only they could change their diet and exercise in ways they liked better, they’d have more success. In other words, they wanted to hear that it was possible to find foods and exercise routines that they enjoyed, rather than finding ways to change what they found enjoyable.
This intransigence — the belief that the world must change around you, rather than you changing for the world — is centered in a belief that pleasure and positivity only comes from outside yourself. But the common thread we’ve found among people who have successfully lost weight in our programs is that they’ve found ways to be more flexible, to find new ways to create happiness while entering a weight loss plan.
It’s not just hocus-pocus, either; the ability to change your own attitude and maintain positive thinking in the face of situations (such as a new diet plan) that might otherwise have made you feel upset has been cited in numerous studies as a contributing factor to success in many endeavors, not just weight loss. Maintaining a level of personal positivity is not just helpful when trying to lose weight, it’s critical; you’ve got to find positivity within yourself, rather than looking for external forces to create it for you.
