If you choose to blame other people, or reasons for your inability to lose weight, then you are NOT taking responsibility for yourself or your life, and I guarantee you WILL NOT LOSE WEIGHT!
You haven't tried everything to lose weight, and if you chose a sensible plan, and STUCK to it, you could, and would lose weight. Why do you eat? For many people, eating is a deeply emotional, and psychological issue. People deal with painful experiences in their past or present, and with insecurities in their lives by eating. Food as comfort. How do you know which path to choose?
The key is to really understand why a diet or exercise routine works. So remember, step 1 is to take responsibility for yourself, step 2 is to understand why you eat, and step 3 is to realize there is no one single food, or exercise combination that will produce results.
Your diet, the food you choose to eat, is a crucial step on your road to weight loss success. As I stated earlier, I believe weight loss success is achieved through a combination of sound nutritional principles and regular exercise. You will be thin if you eat fewer calories than you expend. Do you want to lose weight? How often do you plan on exercising? The key is to choose the healthiest foods possible that fit your tastes, and that meet your requirements. Protein is another essential component of a healthy diet. If you eat animal based foods, chances are you have nothing to worry about. However if you eat a vegetarian diet, then you must make it a point to eat the right combination of foods containing plant proteins which will supply your body with the 9 essential amino acids. People shy away from high fat foods, consistently looking for "low" or "non-fat" foods, when if weight loss is the concern, people should be far more concerned about the calories, and the ingredients in their food, and not just the amount of fat that it has. The answer lies in understanding your body's requirements, and in fulfilling them with healthy, whole foods consumed in moderation. KNOWLEDGE, PLANNING, and CONSISTENCY are the keys to a successful diet strategy.
Exercise is such an important tool in not only losing weight, but in keeping it off. As far as weight loss is concerned, the type of exercise is not as important as the amount. Lift weights. Exercise will accelerate weight loss, and it will help give you the body you want. You can lose weight through applying the above principles to your life, but you can only get a strong, toned, healthy body through regular exercise, and specifically through strength training. If you want to lose weight and be healthy, and you're serious about it, then get serious about starting an exercise program...TODAY!
In order to achieve weight loss success, you must commit to your program. Know that if you've taken the previous steps, then your success is guaranteed if you commit to the program. If you lose 1lb in a week, you have proven to yourself that YOU HAVE THE ABILITY to lose weight. No matter how much weight you have to lose, YOU CAN DO IT! Commit to your program!
This is perhaps the single most important thing any person can do to achieve weight loss success. CONSISTENCY, CONSISTENY, CONSISTENCY! Well, for weight loss success it's "consistency, consistency, and consistency!" Remember, it's the accumulation of good and healthy habits that produce weight loss success, and the only way to accumulate is to BE CONSISTENT!
This is an important part of the weight loss process, and one which is often diminished, or left out of conventional weight loss methodology. It's about LEARNING how to eat. Healthy, sustainable weight loss occurs at a rate of anywhere between 1-2 lbs a week. That's right. Be consistent, accept time, keep your eye on the prize, and YOU WILL LOSE THE WEIGHT!
You've taken responsibility for your actions. You've figured out why you eat. You've chosen a path based on your diet and exercise preferences and requirements, and you've realized there is no ONE right way to lose weight. You've COMMITTED to your program, and committed being CONSISTENT. You have the ability to lose as much weight as you want to.
The Venus Factor Program
The venus factoris a weight loss program that is designed for women. If your Venus index is higher than normal, you are supposed to lose weight; however, if the index is low, you should plan on gaining weight.
Other than guiding you on how to determine your Venus index, the program also has the following: body centric eating guide, workout manual and schedule, and community membership.
The body centric eating guide shows you the foods that you should eat to achieve your ideal shape and weight. Leptin is a hormone that aids in increasing the rate of metabolism; therefore, when the levels of leptin are high, the rate of metabolism is high thus you lose weight fast. Venus factor exercises are aimed at regulating body fat, and toning and sculpting body muscles.
