Let's break it down-
- Extreme - Engaging in any extreme behaviors are not healthy and when it comes to extreme diets it can be flat out harmful. Extreme diets such as crash diets or very low-calorie diets, can have negative effects on your health and long-term weight loss goals. Rapid weight loss often leads to muscle loss, nutrient deficiencies, metabolic slowdown, and can be unsustainable. It's important to focus on a balanced and sustainable approach to nutrition that includes a variety of nutrient-dense foods and loosing fat should be goal of any weight loss journey.
- Emotions- We don't recommend to do emotions with weight loss. Emotional Attachment to Diets or Weight Loss is harmful: It's essential to develop a healthy relationship with food and your body. Emotional attachment to diets or weight loss can lead to a constant cycle of restriction, guilt, and self-judgment. Instead, focus on nourishing your body with nutritious foods, practicing mindful eating, and embracing a positive body image and if making the changes in our lifestyles to help long term weight balance.
- Expectations: We recommend to have realistic expectations as setting unrealistic weight loss goals can set you up for disappointment and frustration and premature failure. Sustainable weight loss takes time and requires consistent, healthy lifestyle habits. It's important to set realistic expectations and focus on long-term health improvements rather than solely on the number on the scale. Celebrate small victories along the way and prioritize overall well-being.
- Excuses: Making Excuses can hinder your progress toward weight loss goals. It's common to find reasons to delay or avoid taking action, such as lack of time or motivation for find a convenient way. It's important to acknowledge and overcome these excuses by making a commitment to prioritize your health and weight loss journey. Seek support from professionals or a supportive community to stay motivated and accountable.
Remember, sustainable weight loss is achieved through a combination of healthy eating, regular physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, and adopting a positive mindset. It's essential to approach weight loss as a holistic journey toward overall well-being rather than a quick fix.
Monitoring the mind, mouth, muscle, and mentor are indeed valuable practices for overall wellness. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:
- Mind:-When it comes to wellness its pivotal to have a positive mindset. Regularly assess your mental well-being by monitoring your thoughts, emotions, and overall mental state.Practice mindfulness and self-reflection to cultivate awareness of your mental processes and identify areas that may need attention or improvement. Engage in stress-reducing activities such as meditation, yoga, Ti-Chi, deep breathing exercises, or engaging hobbies to promote mental well-being.
- Mouth: Be mindful of your dietary choices, especially when it comes to consuming balanced macros and nutrient dense foods. Monitor your hydration and Alcohol intake along with other beverage choices. Practice portion control and track your caloric intake and try to be in negative caloric deficit on regular basis.
- Muscle: Fat is a liability to the human body but LBM (Lean Body Mass) is very important and every weight loss program should be driven by your body composition not weight. It is critical to promote maintenance or even growth of lean body mass as it besides controlling your strength or movement also controls your Metabolic Rate. Track your physical fitness and muscle health by monitoring your strength, flexibility, and endurance. Engage in regular physical activity that includes strength training, cardiovascular exercise, and flexibility exercises. Observe any changes in your muscle tone, strength, or any discomfort or pain during physical activity, and adjust your exercise routine accordingly.
- Mentor: Weight loss or optimal wellness journey is not easy and that's why even the smartest of people have hard times to keep up. It very important that we seek guidance and mentorship from individuals who can provide support, knowledge, and guidance in areas important to your overall well-being. Find mentors, role models, who can help you grow personally and professionally, providing valuable insights and advice based on their expertise and experiences. Foster relationships with mentors who align with your goals and values, and maintain regular communication to gain ongoing support and wisdom.
By monitoring these aspects of wellness, you can develop a holistic approach to self-care, fostering a healthy mind, a strong and fit body and having a long health span.
Remember your first wealth is health and -Wellness is the result of conscious, deliberate choices about how we live our lives, embracing a holistic approach that nurtures our body, mind, and spirit.
