Do You Do This With Your Weight Loss?

The other day I heard my neighbour calling out to someone in her house. The person obviously didn’t her, and so without changing anything, she called out again, and again and again. Listening to this, I shook my head, thinking “Dude, she can’t hear you. There’s no point standing there, calling out to her when she clearly cannot hear you. Change something – maybe go see if you can find her, but just do something different from what you’re doing now!” You’ve had that same reaction, right?

It got me thinking about how we do this with weight loss. 

We try one approach, and it doesn’t work, so we try the same approach again, just in a different package.
We try one diet, and it’s good initially but we can’t stick to it, so we gain the weight back and then go looking for the next diet…which works initially, but, again, we can’t stick to it, so we gain the weight back….and go looking for the next diet, and the next, and the next. And all this time, we think there’s something wrong with us, because we can’t make these work, when the reality is the strategy is wrong. Diet and exercise alone just simply don’t work for lasting weight loss – if that strategy were going to work, it would have worked already!

If you were in the scenario above, you wouldn’t think there’s something wrong with you, and then go into beating yourself up because someone couldn’t hear you calling out to them. You’d simply think to yourself “They can’t hear me” and you’d try a different strategy until you got the outcome you desired. Simple.

And yet we don’t do this with our weight loss.

True power and freedom in your weight loss will come when you ditch the strategies that don’t work, in favour of those that do. If you’re not where you want to be, what you’re doing isn’t working. Plain and simple. If you want to get where you want to go, you’ve got to do something different.

Do you need to ditch your current failing strategy in favour of one that really works?

Ultimate Green Smoothie Recipe

Green smoothies are awesome for health and weight loss as they are a quick way to get in extra vegetables, and therefore nutrients, they’re filling and they make for a fast, healthy meal when you don’t have time to eat, if you struggle with breakfast, or if, like me, it’s too hot to eat something but you want to nourish your body the best way you can.

Plus, look how green it is! It has to be good for you, right?

There’s really no rules when it comes to green smoothies – if you don’t like something I’ve used, substitute something else. The quantities are only rough quantities – I just go with whatever I’ve got on hand. You can use anything, but keep it vegetable heavy and only a small amount of fruit. I love to add in lots of mint and extra lime, so it’s kinda like a Mojito… (I said kinda!)

Don’t freak out on the avocado if you haven’t done it in a smoothie before – there’s no taste, it makes a lovely creamy consistency and the good fats keep you fuller for longer. Oh, and did you know that one of the symptoms of a deficiency of fat in the diet is weight gain and/or the inability to lose weight?!? Pass me the avocado!
