Why Does Weight Loss Work?

In The Secret to Weight Loss, Dr. Robert Atkins says it’s possible for people to maintain weight loss. For me it means being more energetic and active, being in a state of joyful alertness, and avoiding “food addiction” and “binge eating” as much as possible.

We already know that diets are not that effective (and are most likely not necessary), but when people are motivated enough, they can lose weight. Why and how to keep weight off? In this video Dr. Atkins discusses how people who are motivated enough can reduce the cost to health care, and increase their opportunities for health.

A Little History of Obesity. The “obesity crisis” has been going on for many years, but many people don’t know how the story began. Dr. Atkins explains the origin of obesity in this fascinating video.

Why You Need To Take Exercise

The main reason exercise can change the way you move is because movement promotes weight loss. One type of exercise that works wonders is brisk walking. Many health experts recommend 1-2 hour walks daily as part of a healthful eating plan to help you lose weight. In addition to moving, walking is very good for your joints: Research shows brisk walking improves muscle flexibility and increases blood flow around the joints. It also boosts serotonin and oxytocin in the brain and can improve sleep.

I had the most incredible experience on my vacation last year where I was able to live out my dream – going for a walk. It was such an empowering experience to feel so empowered by movement. And the way I carried myself on this walk allowed me to shed the weight. The first step in my life in fitness was to learn to walk with confidence and not be afraid to speak up when I made a mistake or didn’t know where to go.  It’s been over 10 years since I have done this. But the way I carried myself when I was at the gym made me so much more confident in my new-found self-respect. It’s just as important to be confident and to know what you want as it is to know what you don’t want and where to try hard to have it. This video is a compilation of my journey through weight loss, as well as a list of all of the resources, tips and information that I’ve come to rely on. My journey to healthier living started when I was a little girl. I have always wanted to run and my mom (a strong and powerful woman) always encouraged me to do it. I would always say something like “I can’t do this, Mom. I’ll work on it and find out the next week.” But she always said, “Just keep pushing. Don’t break. And make some good decisions. And if you do fail, then at least you didn’t give up. You kept going. And you’re healthier now.”

This Is A Good Video, But…

If you’re overweight, don’t take me as an expert. I do not know anything about fitness, diet, exercise, or self-esteem. All I have is a good understanding of the human body and a passion for fitness and healthy living. This video is definitely a good starting point to find information that you like.
