Published: Jul 25 2005How much will power does it take in order to go through the torment of weight loss? Though the answer to weight loss varies from each individual, all it takes is the correct attitude, admitting to yourself that you do have the desire of letting lose the unwanted pounds. For years, people all over may have experienced the defeat from their own lack of self-will, thinking that weight loss is not worth the pain. But does weight loss entirely has to be something mentally agonizing? It's almost like giving up on the concept of eating, but not to the extreme like ending up being a bulimic. Just because you have to sacrifice yourself to the task does not mean there should not be a compromise. Food comes with all degrees of nutrition and calories, whether it would be whole wheat or white, non-fat to skim, dark meat or white meat, fried or boiled or even raw, food is indiscriminate to everyone on this planet. The ideal foods necessary for weight loss depends entirely on how much you can stuff yourself with. Soup and crackers are often the ideal foodstuff for a successful personal weight loss program, but if you happen to be food crazy could you stay a month eating savory hot water and dry bread? You do not have to punish your taste buds just because weight loss is all about sacrifice. Stories of even a five-hundred-pound plus man lost two-thirds of his body weight after having a diet of Subway sandwiches for months have inspired lots of people in the United States. To start off, know what sort of food that makes you weak in the knees. Most men likes anything fried or off the grill or spit so start off by taking in less of those foods. Women tend to go after anything savory or even exotic so the rules apply to them as well. Junk foods like burgers, fries, and pizza are often labeled as weight loss program destroyers. They are addictive and loaded with sodium, fats, and cholesterol. Just because they are labeled as the 'bad guys' it does not mean that we have to deprave ourselves from indulging with such foods. Every time you take a nibble out of a French fry, just go for a little positive thinking and tell yourself, "a little bit is all I need to get going". Weight loss is all about the discipline of self will, whether it is all about food intake or the hours of exercise you can dish out. Life is good enough to give us the bounties of food so weight loss should not put a damper in our taste buds. We should make an effort to place the word 'enjoyment' in weight loss because we know what we like to eat, only not too much. Charlene J. Nuble 2005.
